The composition of British polymer notes dismays animal lovers:
A vegetarian cafe is refusing to accept the new £5 note after it emerged the currency contains animal products.
Sharon Meijland, owner of the Rainbow Cafe in Cambridge, has put up signs warning customers about the policy.
There was outcry from some vegetarians and religious groups when it was revealed the polymer used for the notes contains tallow – a type of animal fat.
There’d be more beef on money from being stored in leather wallets.
