A shopper was surprised to find a ‘free Palestine’ message printed onto a five pound note he had been issued from a Deptford cash machine.

Dan James made the withdrawal on Deptford High Street last Thursday afternoon in order to use it to do some shopping at Tesco. 

He said: “It was cool to find this, it's a cause I support so it made me smile to see the Free Palestine message on something like this. I'm sure lots of people will see it and no one is going to throw it away so I think it's a really good idea.”

Funny you should ask that, because I took out £200 this morning and the whole lot came out in fivers! That was from a Barclays in City Road London. I know that Barclays have started to introduce more machines that give out £5 notes.

Man thinks 'I support that Palestine malarkey, what if I print that on me fiver and call da local paper to say I found it like dat?'
Man calls local paper who pay out on the story.
Winner, winner, chicken dinner :-)
