A video showing an enraged customer tearing apart a T-Mobile shop in broad daylight on a Manchester shopping centre has emerged online.
Well, we've all got a little angry with our mobile phone operator from time to time - looks like this fellow was pushed a bit too far.
A man who seems decidedly methodical in his orgy of destruction is seen tearing fittings and fixtures from the walls and spraying a fire extinguisher around the store as crowds gather outside the shop window to watch the carnage.
The dissatisfied customer gets to grips with T-Mobile's shop fittings
T-Mobile employees can be seen standing by helplessly waiting for the police to turn up and deal with the disturbance.
The incident took place in Manchester's popular Market Street over the weekend on Saturday afternoon. T--Mobile told The Daily Mirror "The customer’s dispute was in relation to a refund that we were not able to give - as it was clearly outside of the stated terms and conditions."
Police confirmed that a man has been charged with a public order offence and criminal damage.
Jason Codner, 42, is due to appear in Salford and Manchester Magistrates’ Court at the end July.
