A shopkeeper has been captured on camera confronting a woman sitting in a parked car outside his business and accusing her of shamelessly dropping litter through the window.
The young woman appeared to smirk and played with her phone as she repeatedly ignored the man, who claimed she had dumped several plastic bottles and fast food cartons on the pavement in front of his shop.
When she and the two men she was travelling with refused to clear up the mess, he launched an expletive-ridden tirade at the group – branding them ‘scruffy c****’ and threatened to report them to the council.

Footage of the confrontation – which happened in Doncaster, South Yorkshire, emerged on Facebook earlier this week and was shared hundreds of times.
It shows the shopkeeper approaching a silver Seat parked on double yellow lines next to a pile of plastic bottles and fast food cartons on the ground.
He calls out to the young woman in the back seat through her open window: ‘You gonna pick that up?’
She smiles as he approaches and does not answer.
He asks: ‘Why you littering? This is outside my shop.’
But still she ignores him and turns away to use her phone.
He then walks in front of the car to film the number plate, prompting the driver to challenge him.
The irate shopkeeper replies: ‘Pick up your rubbish. It’s from your car. Pick your rubbish up and I won’t send it to the council.’

The driver protests his innocence but is told: ‘Doesn’t matter. She did it.’
Losing his cool, he confronts the woman again who is still tapping away on her phone and calls her a ‘f****** slob’.
He blasts: ‘You dirty b*******. Pick it up, you scruffy c****.’
But when nobody in the car moves a muscle the exasperated shopkeeper finally gives up and walks back towards his store.
Hannah Nicholls commented: ‘Should have put it back through the window. Absolutely can’t stand littering.’
Donna Eastwood said: ‘No respect for themselves or anyone.’
Dodjah Macz pointed out: ‘Bin right next to them.’
Doncaster Council has been approached for comment.
