Re: what were they doing holding stuff like DoB & NI number?

in 2005 I went to the UK without a quid in my pocket as my bank branch was out of UK currency. After about 4 days of visiting and paying for everything with my credit card, I was in London about to visit the Tower and saw an ATM, walked up to it put my card in and withdrew a bunch of UK currency. Easiest FX I have ever done.
