Cash machines to dispense more £5 notes

Small denomination notes are to become more available in cash machines. Many £5 notes have become tatty and old. More £5 notes will be injected in UK cash machines as part of the Bank of England's bid to improve the quality of British fivers. A selection of cash machine operators have agreed to make the note more available to consumers - between 10% to 15% of their devices will be altered so they can dispense £5 notes at a more frequent rate.  Currently fewer than 3% of machines provide the small note.
