Shocking Welcome at Buckingham Palace
- Electric fence installed to block Batman return

ELECTRIC shocks will greet intruders to Buckingham Palace thanks to a new security fence that has been erected around the walls of the famous Royal residence.

The fence comes in the wake of last month's Fathers4Justice publicity stunt when a man dressed as Batman scaled the palace's walls and remained in a highly visible position on the front of the palace for five hours.

The Queen was reported to have been "irritated" by the stunt, but has been warned that she and her family would do well not to rely totally on measures such as the fence for their protection.

"There needs to be a radical change in the way the royal family think about security," said a police spokesperson.

The new fence does not deliver lethal levels of electricity, but does emit enough sparks temporarily to disable intruders, time enough for police to effect an arrest. Stray cats had also better beware.
