Watch as clumsy Evri delivery driver knocks over vase as he kicks parcel through door leaving owner furious | The Sun
THIS is the shocking moment a clumsy Evri delivery driver knocked over a vase as he kicked a parcel through the door.
Michael Lock, from Breaston, Derbyshire, was left fuming after his "very attractive" property was destroyed by an employee in a rush to leave.
Footage shows the deliveryman carelessly throwing the package on the floor before kicking it further into the hallway.
Upon leaving, an ornate red vase holding flowers of the same colour, can be seen falling to the floor – but the employee doesn't even look back or leave a note.
Michael was shocked to find his property damaged when he went to pick up the parcel for his son and was amazed when he watched the scene unfold on camera.
The furious customer told the Derby Telegraph: "He dropped our parcel into the porch, then pushed it further in with his foot so it forced a large vase to fall and get damaged.

"Luckily it has only been scratched, but, you know, it's a very nice vase."
The 74-year-old added: "In the video you will see that, even though he notices what he has done, he does not try to remedy the situation but just leaves the damage.
"Evri have rebranded away from the awful reputation they had with Hermes but this little video seems to suggest there is still a problem."
A spokesperson for Evri said: "We have reached out to this customer to apologise and organise payment for any damage. Our local team has spoken to the courier and taken the necessary action."

Another customer in Scotland was stunned to find her parcel had been posted through the window by an Evri employee.
