 The new £5 note 'ceases to be a simple medium of exchange but becomes a medium for communicating pain and suffering'. 

Hindu temples have banned the new five pound note after it was revealed that it contained animal fat. 

Last week, it was revealed that the banknotes contain tallow, which comes from beef or mutton fat.

As well as outraging vegetarians and vegans, the news also caused concern among members of the Hindu community, who view cows as sacred.
