A MAN racially abused and assaulted a Polish security guard, a court heard.

Ian White, 63, struck the Farmfoods worker with a shopping basket at the retail chain’s store in Kirkgate in November.

White, of Pilrig Street, also hurled racist slurs as shocked staff and shoppers looked on.

He pleaded guilty to assault and a racially aggravated breach of the peace before Sheriff William Holligan yesterday. Sentence was deferred until January for reports.
