I'm performing a query on a database and encoding the results to json via json_encode.

The issue is that a pound sign £ is being outputted to the browser as '\u00a3'

Here's how I'm sending the json to the browser.

header('Content-Type: application/json; charset=utf-8;');
echo json_encode($this->response);

Can someone tell me what's going wrong?
