The store’s Twitter page said: “Trying to restrict numbers in our Plungington Road store, a group of individuals gathered drinking (not purchased from us) were denied access, the second lady spat in our supervisors face – what would have happened if a police officer was spat at? – we need support.”

Bosses uploaded footage of the incident to social media pages.

Lancashire Police said: “Hi – thanks for the tweet.  It doesn't matter who is spat at – it's disgraceful.  If you haven't done so already, please can you report the incident to us online here and we will look into it.”
