Daily Mail published this video item, entitled “‘I work hard! Hero ex-cop defends shop from would-be-thieves with a bottle of vodka” – below is their description.

‘I work hard! Hero ex-cop defends shop from would-be-thieves with a bottle of vodka. Dramatic CCTV caught the moment a would-be robber messed with the wrong shopkeeper – who turned out to be a former special police constable who chased him off with a bottle of vodka. Dilan Mendis, who spent 12 years serving with the Metropolitan Police, was behind the counter when two masked men entered his shop at 5pm last Friday. One of the yobs approached the till and demanded Mr Mendis filled a rucksack with disposable e-cigarettes at Bath Wines, in Worcester. The shop owner can be heard pleading, ‘come on brother I work hard for my money’ before reaching for his phone to start calling police. The would-be thief then shouts ‘put the phone down man’ and tries to get behind the counter at which point Mr Mendis grabs a bottle of vodka from the shelf. But the father-of-three sent the two men fleeing from his shop empty-handed by chasing them out of the door.
