Creasy and Criado-Perez were harassed online, and several people were sent to jail for up to 18 weeks because they made threats.

Keen to get your hands on a new note?

Fry was replaced with a picture of Winston Churchill.

The new £10 note was released on 14 September but it could be a few days before one is handed to you as change or dispensed from an ATM.

But the Bank of England has confirmed that a number of cash machines around the United Kingdom will have the notes.

Who appears on the new £10 note?

Those bills will gradually be withdrawn as they are deposited in banks. They will also need to bring a £10 note to exchange.

What does the new £10 look like?

The author features on the new money which replaces the paper tenner, with Charles Darwin on the design.

The new note is expected to last at least 2.5 times longer than the current paper £10 notes and stay in better condition during day-to-day use.

The Bank of England will announce an exact date at last three months before the note is withdrawn.

Queen Elizabeth is also featured in a see-through window on the new note.

Yes, the production process is the same at the new polymer £5 note.

In August, following a public consultation, the Bank said that after "careful and serious consideration", there would be no change to the composition of polymer used for future banknotes.

The first of the new notes will be available from the Bank of England headquarters on Threadneedle Street, London, when it opens at 9am.

The note includes a series of raised dots in the top left-hand corner to help visually-impaired users to identify the denomination of the note.

Banks must wait until they run out of old paper notes before they switch over to dispensing the new plastic note featuring Jane Austen. "Austen's novels have a universal appeal and speak as powerfully today as they did when they were first published".

"The new £10 will be printed on polymer, making it safer, stronger and cleaner", he added.

It features a raft of security innovations and is the first Bank of England note with a tactile feature to help the blind and partially-sighted.

Victoria Cleland, the Bank's Chief Cashier, said: "It is wonderful to see the inspirational author Jane Austen celebrated on the new ten pound, and even more poignant being launched during the 200th anniversary of her death".
