    The landlord of The Star Inn says he wanted to shock locals into behaving

    A pub in Cornwall has installed an electric fence at the bar to ensure social distancing is observed.

    Bosses at the Star Inn - based in St Just - say they were getting fed up with people ignoring the guidelines.

    The landlord insists it is usually switched off but warned that it can be turned on.

    A couple of drinkers claimed they were shocked by it after one too many pints on Saturday night.

    Pictures of the fence have been circulating online after hundreds of people shared Facebook posts over the weekend.
