People in Tring have been warned to watch out for counterfeit £20 notes doing the rounds in the town.

A member of Facebook group Everything Tring posted a caution on the social networking site, telling others to watch out for the fake notes after she was given one in a charity shop.

Sarah Spence at Herts Police said: “People should remain vigilant when handling cash and carry out basic security checks, including making use of the ultraviolet scanning equipment which many premises have to check the authenticity of bank notes.

“If you suspect you have been passed counterfeit money then please contact police on the non-emergency number 101.”
