Man paid for takeaway with forged £10 made from toilet roll

A man paid for a takeaway meal with a £10 note made out of loo paper.

Tyrone Coburn, 27, used his PC to print the forged cash but a delivery driver’s daughter noticed it was a fake.


Coburn, of Ferndale, south Wales, was last week fined £145 by Pontypridd magistrates after admitting using counterfeit currency.


‘It is the most expensive takeaway of his life,’ said lawyer Pat Matthews.

Prosecutor Andrew Gwynne said: ‘It appears the gentleman had chanced his arm.

‘When a delivery driver returned from the property and had gone back into the shop his granddaughter handed a note which she thought was a ‘Toy Town £10.’
