Shocking footage shows a Royal Mail employee throwing packages over a metal barrier and onto the concrete floor outside a post office.
Stunned onlooker Cieran Jebb filmed the driver as he continued to throw several large items into a large pile outside the Fulham Delivery Office in London last Monday.
The video shows brown packages being thrown to the ground from a Royal Mail van while the driver remains seated in the back of the vehicle.
Mr. Jebb can then be heard calling, “Is that my package?”
A pile of packages is already lying on the floor under the stairwell outside the office.
The worker then emerged from the van in his trademark red uniform while holding on to a plastic container of small items.

He then walks around and starts throwing the stuff off the floor into a metal cart waiting to the side.
Mr Jebb said he had been working in the area all week and had witnessed about 50 per cent of workers throwing packages in the same manner.
He has since sent the videos to 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 calls for a ‘wage increase that fully addresses the current cost of living’.
Cieran Jebb filmed the worker throwing out the packages and said: ‘We kept watching them all week and 50 percent of the people there just threw the packages away’

Mr Jebb, 22, said last Monday: ‘We were doing some work on some flats overlooking Royal Mail and we saw a load of parcels on the floor so we kept looking and then saw the man take them out the van threw.
“I started recording them and when he finished getting the package out of the van, he grabbed a cage and started throwing them in the cage. The way he handled the packages didn’t seem to bother him.
“We kept looking at them all week and 50 percent of the people there just threw the packages away. I sent the videos to Royal Mail on Twitter but they have not responded to me at all.’
On Monday, a Royal Mail spokesman said: ‘We were very disappointed when we saw these videos and are investigating what happened. Once our investigation is complete, we will take appropriate action internally.
‘We regularly point out to colleagues that we must handle customers’ packages with care. We will reinforce this message to all employees of the local office seen in these videos.”
