Shocking moment security guard attacks shopper

Lidl has launched an investigation after this shocking video emerged of one of its security guards violently beating a shopper.

Astonishing video footage of the beating shows the supermarket security guard repeatedly punch, kick and even stamp on a member of the public

The clip was captured by a "shocked" shopper, who came across the incident whilst walking through Stratford Shopping Centre in London.

The incident happened at around 10pm on Thursday May 30 and Lidl said the guard is now no longer working for them.

Lidl has since launched an internal investigation into the attack and bosses said they are "shocked and appalled" by the incident.
