A Burnham-On-Sea night club could soon introduce fingerprint scanning at its front door rather than requiring clubbers to show conventional ID.

Shakers in the High Street (pictured) is considering asking clubbers to provide their name, address and proof of age as well as a fingerprint – which would then be stored in an electronic database.

The next time the person visits the club, they will not need to take ID with them, but just have their fingerprint scanned instead for immediate access.

Such a scheme would help to boost security and also make it easier for clubbers to enter the club, say bosses.

Shakers says the high-tech system is in the process of being introduced at Weston’s Vision club and, if successful, will be introduced into Burnham-On-Sea.
