Witness Chris Moir, 35, an account manager for an energy company, saw the meltdown after popping to a newsagents on Saturday at around 2.40pm.

He says the driver was scanning a parcel before lobbing it into the back of his van – before picking up another one to throw.

Chris took his phone out to film the incident for at least 30 seconds before deciding to pull up next to the driver to ask about his behaviour.

He told The Sun Online: “I had just put the bread and milk on the passenger’s seat and that’s when I clocked him indiscriminately throwing boxes into the back of his van.

“I pulled up next to him and asked why he was throwing the boxes instead of placing them inside the van.

“He told me ‘there’s nothing breakable’.

“Then I asked him how he knew that was the case. I watched him throw half a dozen boxes of different sizes. How does he know what’s in there?”

Chris then decided to try and get in touch with Hermes to complain.

He added him and his wife will “quite gladly” never order anything from Hermes again and recommended customers use other firms.

The driver’s antics isn’t the first time that a Hermes worker has been caught mishandling packages.

The delivery company was forced to apologise after shocking videos emerged in 2018 showing staff kicking and punching parcels.

It was revealed as many as 200 packages a day ended up smashed up, opened or damaged at the Hermes depot in Bridgwater, Somerset.

The delivery giant also had a muck up in 2020, when 30,000 parcel were “lost” when a scanning machine misread postcodes.

The Sun Online has contact Hermes for comment.
