Here's a new wrinkle in the saga of the polymer banknotes with teeny tiny tallow traces. -Editor
The owner of a vegan restaurant has been forced to lift her ban on animal fat banknotes.
Following the introduction of the new £10 note last week Rachael Phoenix, who owns Voltaire in Bangor, has changed its policy on accepting the money.
It was last year, after it was announced the new £5 notes contained tallow, a type of animal fat, Rachel banned the note from her eatery.
This was well received by customers but this month saw the new tenner launched, which also includes animal fat.
Rachael said that they have now decided to lift the ban on both notes, The Daily Post Wales reports.
She said they had made their point and did not want to cause “confusion or embarrassment” to their customers.
