FOCUS: The £14m banknote mystery (and what else we don't know)

More than £14m in Jersey bank notes was repatriated from the UK to Jersey over a three-year period – but officials are unclear as to how or why the local tender, which cannot be spent abroad, ended up there.

Were these ill-gotten gains linked to local drug-trafficking? Or was this simply a case of too many tourists not realising they’d taken home unspendable notes?
