Moment swearing DPD driver lobs fragile package before being sacked

"I am never using DPD again"

THIS is the shocking moment a DPD driver lobs a “fragile” package from his van with a mighty thud.

A spokesperson for DPD insisted the expletive and parcel-slinging driver has been sacked.

The video was captured by horrified shopper Anne Betteridge, 45, outside her home in Mablethorpe, Lincs.

The full-time carer had popped outside to grab an order of clothes after spotting the van pull up last Thursday (July 21).

But she was horrified when the driver started flinging parcels to the floor.

 

Anne said: “I went outside to meet him – but then he started throwing parcels out of the van.

“At first it didn’t bother me, I had just ordered clothes and the other stuff didn’t look breakable. I started laughing.

“But then he threw this box and you could hear it rattle and I noticed it said ‘fragile’ on it.

“I just thought ‘What is going on?’”

In the footage, the irate driver continues to fling the packages and mumbling to himself. 

He says: “I’m going to have a heart attack.

“F*****g hundreds, I’ve got 110 in here”.

Anne says he then gave up searching and insisted he would deliver the goods later – although she insisted that it didn’t arrive until the next day. 

Anne said: “I am never using DPD again. It was really unprofessional.

“He just drove off – and he seemed kind of annoyed.

“I’m not even annoyed, I’m just baffled.”

A spokesperson for DPD said: “We were already aware of this incident last week and can confirm that the driver was immediately removed from the business on return to the depot.  

“The behaviour here was completely unacceptable and does not in any way reflect the service our drivers provide to customers millions of times a week, up and down the country. 

“We would like to reassure everyone that we never tolerate poor service like this.”
