Police warning over fake £20s
SHOPPERS and traders have been warned to be on their guard after fake £20 notes were found circulating in Hebden Bridge.
The forgeries, described as “extremely good” copies by a businessman who unwittingly received one, even have watermarks.
But they are about one millimetre smaller than legal tender.Inspector Dave Browning, from the Upper Valley Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: “This is an issue that crops up from time to time and we urge shopkeepers to remain vigilant and work with us.
“This is an issue we want to resolve quickly.”
