A newsagent in the seaside town of Swanage has decided to accept Bitcoin as payment after hearing about the unregulated digital currency on a television show.
Shop owner Andy James is hoping his service will draw tourists, but so far his only two Bitcoin customers have both been local - one of them buying a chocolate bar for 65p.
