Warning over fake money

POLICE are warning shops in Sudbury to be vigilant after fake £20 notes were discovered to be circulating in the town.

Officers say they want people to be on their guard against counterfeit money, especially during the busy Christmas shopping period.

A spokeswoman for Suffolk Police said: “A number of counterfeit £20 notes were discovered in takings being deposited at a bank in the Sudbury area last week.

“Particular attention should be paid to customers paying for low-value items with a high-value note.”

Anyone with information about the counterfeit notes should contact Sudbury Police on 101.
