"In Touch" project in UK

Bars in southwest UK took epochal system to kick out stoners from bars.

Bars in southwest UK took epochal system to kick out stoners from bars.
Biometric finger-scanning machines let drinkers not make barhopping anymore.
Such biometric finger-scanning system is now used widely in Japan such as for passwords for PC’s, mobile phones, ATM’s and others. However, I have never imagined the system is used for this kind of situation.
By the way, are there so many drinkers making trouble in the country of gentelman?

LONDON (AFP) - Revellers in a British town are to have their fingerprints scanned when they enter pubs and clubs in a scheme aimed at weeding out drunken troublemakers.
The "In Touch" project is the first of its kind in Britain.
Biometric finger-scanning machines have been installed at six venues in Yeovil, southwest England. Clubbers will be asked to have their right index finger scanned and show picture identification to register on the system.
The data is then stored on a computer network which other pubs and clubs in the scheme can access so that information on louts can be passed on quickly.
"It will identify those who have previously been intent on causing trouble," said Sergeant Jackie Gold, of Avon and Somerset Police.
"If somebody is causing trouble in one pub and is removed from the premises, from the time it takes for that person to walk to another venue, the system will have been updated and the door staff at other venues will be aware."
"It will also mean that they do not have to carry ID on them which can often be the source of inconvenience."
Once registered on the system, clubbers are identified by finger scan only.
The scheme is voluntary and the information stored will be subject to data protection laws.
