The jury at Leeds Crown Court were shown CCTV footage in the Mill Street West store in Dewsbury which captured the moment Wayne Walshaw tried to kill John Secker in a revenge attack.


Mr Secker was taken to Leeds General Infirmary and found to have a six-inch laceration across his throat which required surgery to close it but had not damaged the windpipe or major blood vessels.
