A number of businesses in Newry reported on Thursday that fake Bank of England £50 notes had been used.

Investigating officers stopped a vehicle on Dundalk Road at around 3.40pm and seized a number of items from the car.

A 17-year-old boy and 20-year-old man were arrested in Newry and have been charaged with fraud by police who are also investigating incidents in Portadown, Armagh city, counties Fermanagh and Tyrone.

They are due to appear at Newry Magistrates' Court on Saturday.

Police are reminding all business owners and staff to be vigilant of counterfeit notes particularly in the run up to Christmas.

They are advising members of the public to take a few minutes to check notes carefully before accepting them and always report any suspicious incidents to them.
