An Australian “lawyer” is part of a gang of six up before Southwark Crown Court accused of attempting to convince the Bank of England to honour a breathtaking £28bn…in moody £1,000 and £500,000 notes, AFP reports.

The cunning plan centred on an “avalanche” of fake £1k bills and 360 so-called “special issue” £500k denominations. The former were withdrawn from circulation in 1943, with just 63 examples unaccounted for, while the latter never existed.
