You can find it in SITE_ROOT/language/en-GB/en-GB.ini on line number 142.

This answer was MUCH appreciated, I have been looking for the answer.
Thanks.

Question though, I tried to edit this file via my extplorer, it won't let me. Does this mean that I have to go to it via my server files?

Are you able to edit other files with your extplorer? It may be a file ownership issue (common). I suggest using filezilla (free) to manage your files and filesystem permissions. It is quicker IMHO.

Also note changes will be overwritten with upgrading as far as I can see.

I've tried editing this line, but it's not working for me.

In the file en-GB.ini the line says this
ALERTNOTAUTH=You are not authorised to view this resource.
(NOTE: authorised spelled with an 's')

On the front-end when I get the message it says:
You are not authorized to view this resource.
(NOTE: authorized spelled with an 'z')

My site is clearly not pulling this text from en-GB.ini

Where else could this be coming from?

FYI, I have no other language in use other than English.

Thank you very much kanoorani ;D. In Joomla 2.5 the "You are not authorised to view this resource." is in the line 95.

For users looking for an answer in joomla 3 and up.
goto admin backend -> Extension -> Language(s) -> Overrides. This will prevent a joomla update to overwrite your new language settings.
