BBC ELECTRONIC TURNSTILES SHOOT STARS INTO THE BUILDING

By CBR Staff Writer

Staff and visitors at the British Broadcasting Corp Television center in London – who include some of the country’s top showbiz stars – have been arriving for work rather faster than they would wish. New electronic turnstiles have been turning much faster than people expect – giving many a forceful prod in the rear that hurtles them into the building. Staff have been talking of their least favorite stars being shot through like pellets from a spud gun, one insider told the Daily Telegraph. Faulty software is blamed and the turnstiles have been cordoned off while programmers look for the bug.
