If you still have an old £10 note in your wallet, it's time to spend it.

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.

The note also includes a quote from her famous work, Pride and Prejudice, which says: "I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading".

The Bank of England has announced that the old paper notes, featuring naturalist Charles Darwin, will no longer be legal tender after that date. New five (you can see the portrait of Winston Churchill on it) is the new variation of the banknote, also shows the higher level of durability, it is also cleaner than old-fashioned paper notes.

After the March deadline the old notes will only be able to be exchanged at the Bank of England.
