Photo taken in London, capital of Britain, on May 13, 2010, shows two 500 euro banknotes. British money exchange offices have stopped selling 500 euro banknotes after police discovered the super-large denomination notes were being used almost exclusively by criminals, officials said on Thursday. Tourists and other legitimate customers will not be affected and the 500 euro note remains legal.
