The Covid-19 pandemic prompted a hotel in the UK to find an innovative use for sheep pens.
Sheep pens have been used to create seating bay areas to ensure social distancing measures are complied with at Langdon Beck Hotel.
They were borrowed from the organisers of the Langdon Beck Sheep Show, which has been cancelled in light of the global health pandemic,
Speaking to Teesdale Mercury, landlady Sue Matthews said: “Paul Johnson, one of the local farmers, offered to do it for me. I was quite chuffed with it when we did it.”
The hotel re-opened on July 4th following a three-month closure.
Meanwhile, another pub in the UK has installed an electric fence at its bar to ensure social distancing guidelines are adhered to, as reported by us here.
The Starr Inn in Cornwall has taken action to prevent customers from crowding near staff at its bar.
Star Inn landlord, Johnny McFadden, confirmed to Cornwall Live that while the fence is usually switched off, it can be turned on whenever required.
According to reports, some customers have already claimed they have been shocked by the fence.
