Furor over fiver

The Denver Post - - BUSINESS -

A small group of Bri­tish veg­e­tar­i­ans and ve­g­ans are di­rect­ing their anger at, of all things, the Bank of Eng­land. The bank cre­ated a new five-pound note ear­lier this year that con­tains a sub­stance de­rived from an­i­mal fat. The Bank of Eng­land did con­firm that the five-pound ban­knote con­tains traces of tal­low, which is used in can­dles and soaps. The ve­g­ans and veg­e­tar­i­ans have started an on­line pe­ti­tion to pres­sure the Bank of Eng­land to find a new way of mak­ing the ban­knote.
