A TEEN has been charged after counterfeit cash was handed over to a delivery driver in Dunfermline.

Police urged the public on Tuesday to be aware after a number of incidents recently where delivery drivers were paid for food items with counterfeit £20 notes.

Now a 15-year-old has been charged with the offence of forgery.

On Dunfermline Police's Twitter page it stated: "Following an incident in Dunfermline where a delivery driver was paid with a fake £20 note we can confirm that a 15-year-old was charged with an offence contrary to s15 Forgery and Counterfeiting Act 1981."

The Press has asked Police Scotland for details of when these offences took place.
