£5 to Return To UK ATMs

Can you remember when you could get a fiver out of the ATM?

Well that feeling is due to return as the UK continues to feel the credit crunch and that’s the only note that they’ll dispense!

Bank Machine have started their roll-out in Roman Road, Tower Hamlets, London and wants to continue through to the rest of the Capital as well as Leeds, Manchester, Birmingham, Newcastle, Edinburgh and Glasgow.

The company’s Director, Ron Delnevo said;

“If people take out £60 at a time they are more likely to spend it, but smaller notes, such as £5, will help them keep track of money.”

The Bank of England’s chief cashier Andrew Bailey, whose signature appears on all bank notes, said:

“The £5 notes have a vital part to play in the UK purchasing chain and I welcome this initiative by Bank Machine to give easier access to these notes in key ATM locations throughout the UK.”
