A MAN who was not wearing a mask and was asked to leave a yacht club’s bar has been caught on camera shouting abuse at staff.

In the footage, filmed at Brighton Marina Yacht Club, the man can be heard saying: “I will get you, I swear to you, I will do you”.

At one point, a worker can be heard saying: "You have to have a mask on".

The police have been made aware of the video and are trying “to establish the full circumstances”.

In the clip, believed to have been filmed on Sunday evening, the man can be heard exchanging heated words with workers who are wearing masks.

“Who do you f***ing think you are? I don’t care if you get fined, it’s not a problem for me,” he said.

“This b**** here is a shameful manager. She’s not a manager, she’s a kid thinking she’s managing something here. It’s ridiculous behaviour.”

The woman eventually persuades the man to go but before leaving he can be heard saying that she “does not know what she is doing”.

New measures introduced by last week mean bar and waiting staff have to wear masks, as do customers when they are not seated at a table to eat or drink.

Businesses face a fine up to £10,000 if they take reservations of more than six, do not enforce social distancing or do not take customers’ contact details.

A spokeswoman for Sussex Police said: “We are aware of the video on social media.

“Contact will be made with the business to establish the full circumstances.

“Our policing role during the pandemic has not changed. Our officers will always engage, explain and encourage members of the public with enforcement being used at the time only as a last resort.

“During this health emergency, people need to take personal responsibility for their actions and ensure they are following the current government guidance.

“Our priorities lie with public safety and ensuring the force can operate effectively to those who need us. We would expect businesses to manage their premises as they have been doing so for a number of weeks now however if there is disorder, this should be reported to the police. You can report matters to us either online or call 101, in an emergency dial 999.
