City of London restaurant 10 may have to reconsider some of its publicity material. Information packs for the banker’s lunch venue bear realistic life-size reproductions of scorched 10 notes, also reproduced on screens greeting diners, as part of the ’10’ themed graphics package.
There is one problem. The reproduction of bank notes is illegal without permission from the Bank of England. A spokeswoman for the restaurant was unable to confirm whether such permission has been sought.
Luckily the full length of Bishopsgate is between the Bank of England, in Threadneedle Street, and 10. Let’s hope the fat cats don’t stray too far at lunchtime.
