March the 1st is the last day you can spend you old paper ten pound notes.

The Bank introduced the paper £10 note featuring naturalist Charles Darwin on November 7, 2000.

The new plastic £10 note became legal tender on September 14 and it estimated that about 55% of tenners in circulation are the new polymer version.

Retailers, banks and other institutions can refuse to accept the old-style notes beyond the deadline, although it will still be possible for shoppers to exchange them for the new £10 note featuring Jane Austen at the Bank of England.

Old notes can still be spent ahead of this date and you can exchange them at the Bank once this point has passed.

The foil image over the see-through window is Winchester Cathedral, where Austen was buried in 1817.

FDA approves first digital pill
As explained in an FDA news release, the pill contains a sensor that communicates with a wearable patch. The drug is now not approved to treat these patients, according to the FDA.

They will feature quotes made by Austen, such as: "I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading!" from Pride and Prejudice, as well as her initials.

The new tenner is the first Bank of England note with a tactile feature to help blind and partially-sighted users.

In August, the Bank of England confessed that it would continue with the use of tallow in future banknotes, the spokesperson noted that Bank "has not taken this decision lightly".

It has persevered with the material despite complaints from religious and vegan groups that the animal fat tallow is used in the production process.

Now the new plastic £10 note has been jettisoned into circulation the old tenner is to be withdrawn.
