There was a piece on the BBC news yesterday and again in today's papers about a company who have installed an ATM in Bow, East London which dispenses £5 notes rather than the usual £10 or £20.

Apparently this is their response to the 'credit crunch'.

We are told that the ATM is unique and the first in the UK to dispense fivers.

Unfortunately this latter assertion is cobblers!

My elder daughter has recently graduated from the University of Kent in Canterbury which, throughout her 3 years there, had a Barclays machine on campus which dispenses fivers.

The machine is in a part of the campus which is accessible to ALL members of the public and not just students.

They said it was the first to ONLY dispense fivers. is this the case with the one in Kent?

Are they charging £2.50 to get hold of a fiver, like a lot of the machines around now?

Nearly all Ulster Bank ATMs dispensed £5 notes a few years back. Some still do around student areas and the ATMs are free to use.
