A Tesco employee was suspended after shocking footage emerged showing him attack a customer.
The incident occurred at Tesco Express in Goodmayes, Dagenham, East London and was filmed by Wasiq Hussaini.
The cameraman claims he ended up in A & E over the altercation.
While it not uncommon now to see people whip out the camera phones to prove undeniable evidence to such incidents, in this case Wasiq’s photo session of the ‘mispriced item of the shelf’ is what caused the fight.
The worker shouts ‘this guy’ before he lunges forward and tries to throw the phone out of Wasiq’s hand.
A Tesco spokeswoman said: ‘As soon as this incident occurred we took immediate action to apologise to the customers involved and an internal investigation is now underway.
‘We work hard to ensure our colleagues deliver the best possible service for our customers and any actions which are not in line with this policy will not be tolerated.’
Wasiq has said that he will be ‘pushing for legal action’.
