A man accused of calling a Primark security guard ‘p*ki’ and threatening to put explosives up his bottom claims he was only joking.

Peter French, 65, says he was simply ‘minding my own business’ outside Primark in Union Street when the guard, known as Mr Lescott, came out told him to move.

The guard, who is mixed race, alleges that he made violent threats to him and called him a ‘P**i.’

French, from Torquay, told Exeter Crown Court that it was all ‘in jest’ and denied the charges of racially aggravated harassment alarm or distress with intent.

But Mr Lescott told the court French was staring at him sitting in his security pod in Primark and then started running into the shop, ranting, swearing and trying to look at the CCTV.

He then allegedly left, only to return a short time later to make racist remarks at Mr Lescott.

Giving evidence, French admitted telling the security guard: ‘I’ll put a bayonet through you and put Semtex up your arse.’

Mr Lee Bremridge asked: ‘Did you intend to stick a bayonet in him or stick Semtex up his arse.

French replied: ‘No, it was in jest’.

He then added: ‘I was upset at the way he was treating me. I was outside of the store sheltering from the rain. I stuck up for myself.’

He also denied calling the guard ‘P*ki’, adding: ‘I don’t want to sound like Bill Clinton but I categorically did not use that word.’
