Horrifying footage has captured a woman launching a foul-mouthed racist tirade at workers in a kebab shop.
CCTV from the Medo Kebab House in Southport, Merseyside, recorded the woman telling workers, ‘remember he’s in my country, not his’ as she was handed her food.
The clip has amassed thousands of views on social media, after it was shared by the takeaway owner in a bid to demonstrate the abuse his staff have to deal with.

Footage from the Medo Kebab House in Southport, Merseyside, recorded the woman telling staff, ‘remember he’s in my country, not his’ as she was handed her food
Social media users have since called for the woman in the footage to be ‘named and shamed’.
In the video, she can be heard shouting a racial slur into the shop from the doorway, as a staff member replies: ‘it’s your country – no need to be racist.’
She can be seen using an electronic cigarette as she stands at the counter.
Cihan Erdogan, 42, owns Medo Kebab House and moved to the UK some 23 years ago from Turkey.
Mr Erdogan, who was working behind the counter, told the Liverpool Echo: ‘She tried to grab something behind the till, a piece of paper or a pen, and I told her not to.
‘We said “please just ask us, we can give you whatever you want” and she was saying, “This is my own country – this is mine, you are foreign, you can’t say that to me”.’

People have now called for the woman to be named and shamed after her behaviour
The takeaway was nominated for the best takeaway outside London in 2015 and 2014.
Mr Erdogan added: ‘I’m 42 years old and I’ve been in this country almost 23 years now, so most of my life I’ve spent here and I’ve been serving Southport people most of my life.
‘When the credit crunch started I almost went bankrupt and my parents sold their house in Turkey and paid the money into my business here.
‘I work very hard, like 15 to 18 hour days sometimes – it’s very hard to pay bills and everybody thinks foreign people come here to take money and take benefits but it’s not like that.
‘I came to the UK when I was young and since then I’ve never taken benefits.’
The shocking clip has led to a wave of anger online.
John Parsons wrote: ‘Why the abuse? The staff gave her what she wanted but it still isn’t good enough.’
Aleck Jardim said: ‘Racist but still comes for food cooked by the same foreign people she can’t stand.’
It was also branded ‘vile’ and ‘disgusting’ in other responses to Mr Erdogan’s post.
