Bank of England Unveiled New 10 Pounds Note Featuring Jane Austen

New Bank of England governor Mark Carney today unveiled the new design as a tribute to Jane Austen, one of the greatest writers in English literature. The Austen note will appear from 2017.

The move comes after the Bank faced criticism that a plan for Winston Churchill to feature on the new fiver meant there would not be a woman on any English note.
