UK pub installs electric fence to maintain social distancing

London, Jul 14 (IANS): A pub in the UK has installed an electric fence in front of the bar to stop people getting too close to the staff in order to maintain social distancing amid the COVID-19 pandemic, a media report said.

The Star Inn in Cornwall county took the drastic measure to protect people from coronavirus, the Metro newspaper report said on Monday.

Landlord Johnny McFadden, who is also a farmer, said: "It's there for social-distancing. Before the fence, people were not following social-distancing and were doing as they pleased, but now people take heed to the guidance around social distancing."

He told ITV that the fence is usually turned off, but he warned that "it can be turned on".
