Bank of England Governor Mark Carney has unveiled the new £10 polymer banknote featuring Jane Austen on the 200th anniversary of her death. The big reveal took place at Winchester Cathedral, where Austen was buried following her death in 1817. It is the first time that members of the public were given an exclusive look ahead of its general release on September 14. Austen is the only woman - apart from the Queen - to feature on an English bank note, following the withdrawal of the old £5 notes, which featured Elizabeth Fry. The new fivers show a picture of Winston Churchill.
