A pub landlord has banned under 25s in the evenings after some drinkers "refused to adhere to any social distancing rules".
Landlord David Haines told the BBC: "In spite of how many times you ask them to sit in groups of six, it goes out the window. It was impossible to control.
"We've got a greater duty to our customers and our staff.
"We apologise to those of you who are affected and we will review this decision periodically."
A statement on the pub's Facebook page said: "Please note that from 8pm tonight we will be implementing an over 25s only rule in the evenings.
"This is because the last three nights have seen us attract unprecedented numbers of younger drinkers who are refusing to adhere to any social distancing rules which, in the current climate, is putting both our staff and our regular customers at risk.
"We apologise to those of you who are affected and we will review this decision periodically until we are in safer times but, until then, if you are under 25 and it is later than 8pm, you will be refused entry."
It comes after five pubs had to close just days after reopening after customers tested positive for coronavirus.
