A close look at the new Sir Winston Churchill note design

Luisa Baldini takes a close look at the banknote which features Sir Winston Churchill and will enter circulation in 2016.

The wartime leader's image is planned to feature on the reverse of the new £5 note, together with one of his most celebrated quotations.

Churchill was chosen owing to his place as "a hero of the entire free world", said Bank governor Sir Mervyn King.

The current face of the £5 note is social reformer Elizabeth Fry.
