THE £50 note featuring a picture of Sir John Houblon, the first governor of the Bank of England, will be withdrawn today after 20 years in circulation.

The Bank of England will replace them with new notes that are harder to forge.

Post Offices and several banks will continue to accept them until the end of October.

After that, if you want to exchange your bills for one of the new Boulton and Watt £50 notes, you'll have to get yourself down to the Bank of England in London.
