A STAFF member at a coronavirus testing centre who was caught on camera having a spat with a filmmaker is ‘no longer working’ at the site.
He had filmed himself asking staff at Oxford Parkway Park and Ride site if they were busy, and also why filming was not allowed.
One security guard, who was wearing a high-visibility jacket, walked up to the cameraman, who was filming despite signs saying it wasn’t allowed, and told him the rules.
But the row spiralled out of control when he seemingly flouted social distancing rules, without wearing a mask.
The YouTuber, known referred to by his followers as AB, told him: “Hey, don’t come too close.”
But the test centre worker replied: “Why, are you worried?”
When asked to ‘get back’ he outright refused, asking ‘why’ and saying ‘no’.
In the video the camera falls to the side and the sound goes mute. AB later claimed it was pushed.
In the video the security guard dials 999 within seconds, asking for the police and claiming he was the one that was assaulted.
He says that AB wouldn’t leave, was abusive and told him to ‘f*** off’.
But AB claims this was a lie and that the whole ordeal was captured on camera.
Later in the 16-minute video AB says: “You’ve assaulted me sir, I’m going to press charges against you – believe me.
“Listen you’re not going to try and assault me again…so stay back.”
But the security guard then sneezes or coughs in his direction and walks away.
A Serco spokesperson said: “The video features an agency worker. His behaviour was unacceptable and he is no longer working at any of the sites that we operate”
