Campaigners dressed as inspirational women from history will converge on the Bank of England today to deliver a 30,000-strong petition calling for better female representation on banknotes.

The petition follows a row over the choice of Sir Winston Churchill to appear on £5 notes in place of prison reformer Elizabeth Fry - one of only two women selected since historical figures were introduced in 1970.
