Hello, my name is***** am a qualified lawyer and I will be assisting you with your question today.
Sorry for some reason my initial query did not post. I was asking if details of this incident were written down by the shop at the time?
Data protection may be relevant here but it depends on what was written down. That is because data protection only related to personal data, which is data held on some filing system about an individual. So if they had written some information down and kept it on file, that is what would be protected, but as you can imagine there could be details not included in there which the security guard will not be prevented from discussing with anyone else. It would be the same as a stranger witnessing what happened then telling his friends down the pub about it. The guard can do exactly the same, as long as he is not disclosing information which was subsequently written down and stored by the shop.
