Jane Austen will be the face of the new £10 note, the Bank of England announced. The decision is a victory for equality campaigners who launched an online protest just three months ago after the bank announced it was replacing the only woman currently featuring on a banknote with Winston Churchill.
Austen will become the third women, apart from the Queen, to be immortalised in such a way. The bank also said it will review the process it uses to select historical figures for banknotes in the future, as Richard Edgar reports.
