The days of spending paper banknotes in the shops are numbered: 100 days, to be exact - so start hunting at home.

Remaining paper £20 or £50 notes should be spent or deposited by the end of September, the Bank of England said.

An estimated 163 million paper £50 banknotes and about 314 million £20 paper notes were still in circulation, the Bank said.
These notes are being replaced with plastic versions, just like the £5 and £10 note, which are more durable.
Bad news for armed robbers with bundles of cash in the attic.
