Just one '?50k' fiver still to be found

Mr Short said he spent one of the five pound notes in an undisclosed part of Northern Ireland - "in a small bar called Charlie's Bar".

He said: "An old lady found it and she said 'I don't want my picture in the papers' and she said 'if it sells for a lot of money it will be better if young children could benefit from it'."

He came up with the idea of engraving Jane Austen on the transparent part of the new plastic Bank of England ?5 notes to mark the 200th anniversary of her death.

He has included a different quote around each one ensuring each note is unique.

The recipients in Wales and Scotland stated in December they intended to keep the notes rather than sell them.
