The Bank of England has withdrawn the legal tender of £10 notes featuring Charles Darwin. 

The new polymer note featuring Jane Austen, which went into circulation on 14 September, is now the only £10 note that businesses can legally accept. 

Retailers still holding old £10 paper notes can swap them for the new ones at banks, building societies or post offices.  

The NFRN has advised store owners to notify staff of the changes and to check whether their suppliers need to make alterations to their cash machines.
