Scottish £5 £10 and £50 notes no longer required after the failed Independence bid may be handed in or posted to banks for free exchange for real money, a spokesperson for the Exchequer said this morning.

The notes, notoriously difficult to purchase things with because they are identical to Monopoly money, surprisingly are legal tender.

Most people have experienced strange looks or downright refusals to accept the silly looking currency when trying to buy petrol and crisps etc.

As part of the "We really love you" post referendum campaign, Scottish money will be fully accepted without raised eyebrows for 48 hours.

Other sweeteners include not laughing at Scottish football or rugby failures to win silverware for one month.
