Man kicked out of shopping centre for wearing tight shorts

A man wearing tight short shorts has been kicked out of a shopping centre because he was showing too much flesh.

Bosses at the Intu shopping centre in Derby confirmed they removed the man following complaints from fellow shoppers.

He was wearing a traditional German lederhosen-style outfit.

The incident happened at about 5.45pm on Wednesday, when the man was asked to leave by the centre's security staff.

Derby resident Paul Mosley, who saw the man being removed from the premises, came to the Derby Telegraph saying he initially felt he was removed because of his attire.

But an Intu Derby spokeswoman said this was not the case, The Derby Telegraph reports.

She said he was ordered out because of what "was on display".

She added: "We received a complaint from a young mother who was with her two children and the man was then asked to leave.

"The guest understood and cooperated fully with the request made by the Intu security team.

"Intu Derby has a customer policy in place to ensure the safety and wellbeing of all of our guests every time they visit us."

Mr Mosley, 36, who works in construction, said the man's outfit had created a stir in the shopping centre.

He said: "I was walking towards Sports Direct where I saw a man in rather unusual clothing being flanked by two security staff side by side.

"The man seemed very bemused which led me to believe he may have been asked to leave for his attire rather than him doing something wrong."
