Royal FAIL! Shocking footage shows postal worker hurling packages over a metal barrier onto the concrete ground

  • Brown packages were tossed from the van onto the concrete ground
  • The incident was filmed outside Fulham Delivery Office in London last Monday 
  • Eyewitness Cieran Jebb said: ’50 per cent’ of workers were ‘throwing’ parcels
  • Royal Mail is ‘disappointed’ and have launched an investigation into the event

Shocking footage shows a Royal Mail worker hurling parcels over a metal barrier and onto the concrete ground outside a post office. 

Dismayed onlooker Cieran Jebb filmed the driver as he continued to throw several large items into a large pile outside Fulham Delivery Office in London last Monday.

The video shows brown packages being tossed from a Royal Mail van onto the ground while the driver remained inside the back of the vehicle.

Mr Jebb can then be heard shouting: ‘Is that my parcel?’

A pile of parcels are already shown laying on the ground underneath the stair area outside the office.

The worker then emerged from the van wearing his distinctive red uniform while holding onto a plastic container containing small items.

He then walks around and begins throwing the items from the ground into a metal trolley that is waiting at the side.

Mr Jebb said he was working in the area all week and witnessed around 50 per cent of the workers throwing parcels in the same way.

He has since sent the videos onto Royal Mail but is still awaiting a response.

Royal Mail workers voted to strike on December 1, 9, 11, 14, 15, 23 and Christmas Eve as the union is calling for a ‘pay rise that fully addresses the current cost of living’.

Cieran Jebb filmed the worker tossing the packages and said: 'We kept watching them throughout the week and 50 per cent of the people there were just throwing the parcels out'

Speaking last Monday, Mr Jebb, 22, said: ‘We were doing some work on some flats overlooking Royal Mail and we noticed a load of parcels on the ground so we kept watching then noticed the guy throwing them out the van.

‘I started recording them and once he finished getting the parcel out the van he got a cage and started throwing them into the cage. It didn’t seem to bother him the way he was treating the parcels.

‘We kept watching them throughout the week and 50 per cent of the people there were just throwing the parcels out. I’ve sent the videos to Royal Mail on Twitter but they haven’t responded at all to me.’

Last Monday, a Royal Mail spokesperson said: ‘We were very disappointed to view these videos, and are investigating what happened. Once our investigation has concluded, we will be taking appropriate action internally.

‘We regularly remind colleagues of the need to handle customers’ parcels with due care and attention. We will be reinforcing this message to all staff at the local office featured in these videos.’
