Video: The UK's First Vertical Bank Note
This video published February 27, 2019 by The Telegraph shows people's reactions to the new vertical banknote from the Ulster Bank. -Editor
The UK's first vertically printed banknote became legal currency today, and it's described as the "biggest shake-up to consumer cash wallets in
over 40 years".
Northern Ireland's Ulster Bank is one of seven in the UK that can issue sterling as legal currency. It switched production of its £5 and £10 notes to
polymer, making them more secure and durable, but it also printed them with a vertical design.
Armed with the new notes I took to the streets of London to find out what shoppers and small business owners thought of the strange looking cash.
