The campaigner behind a petition against the use of animal fat in plastic bank notes is threatening legal action over the Bank of England's decision to continue printing the notes.
Doug Maw, a vegan from Keswick, started a petition which has now been signed by more than 130,000 people.
He was invited to meet the Bank of England and discuss his concerns last month, however, the central bank has now said it will continue using the notes, as it would be too costly to replace them.
Mr Maw has said he is "angry" with the decision.
The fact that they've decided to go ahead and not withdraw and continue (circulating the notes), means they are forcing people who have religious and ethical objections to use something that's against their religious beliefs and their ethical beliefs.
I'm most definitely as of now looking at legal advice and we will definitely be bringing a test case against them because I'm pretty sure we will win it.
