The Bank of England has released the names of more than 800 people nominated as part of the public process to choose a scientist to appear on the next £50 note.

Those on the list range from early favorites such as Stephen Hawking and computing pioneer Ada Lovelace to the lesser known likes of John (Iron Mad) Wilkinson – an eighteenth century industrialist – and Victoria Drummond, a pioneering marine engineer.

They also include Margaret Thatcher, who studied chemistry at Oxford and worked as a scientist for food company J Lyons, later becoming a fellow of the Royal Society.
