Fake fivers with Kim Jong-un’s face are apparently doing the rounds

Hold on a minute. That’s not the Queen.

Fake £5 notes adorned with the image of North Korea’s supreme leader, Kim Jong-un, are apparently doing the rounds – as one surprised man found out.

Ant Norfolk, 24, took to Facebook after discovering the fake fiver in his pocket the morning after a night out.

‘I was in a bar somewhere in Manchester,’ he explained.

Apparently I “dropped” a note, which a stranger was kind enough to “give back” to me.

‘I didn’t notice it was different. I just put it in my pocket like you would and said thank you.

‘Really it was someone playing a joke.’

Ant, from Manchester, is now selling the novelty £5 note on eBay and says he will give half the money to charity.
