CCTV that blocks people from entering a shop if they are not wearing a face covering is being set up across the UK.
The cameras use artificial intelligence to determine whether a person walking towards the shop doors is wearing a mask in a bid to help staff tackle ‘difficult’ customers.
A screen fitted outside the shop’s doors will display a green or red message to automatically allow or deny access to the person.
Customers who aren’t wearing a mask will be refused entry automatically and the doors will remain shut.
