This video shows a shocking delivery attempt by a Hermes courier at a Leeds home.
The female driver can be seen throwing the parcel over the gate and ringing the bell before getting in her car again and driving off.
Olivia from Cookridge discovered the CCTV footage from yesterday (Thursday 14 May) after wondering why three of her packages this week had ended up in the middle of the drive. This was despite putting a note on the wall asking couriers to place parcels over the electric gate.

The 29-year-old accountant said: “I had to laugh but I wouldn’t have been laughing if it was something expensive and they’d thrown it over the wall.
“Yesterday I got a notification that my parcel had been delivered so I thought I would watch on the CCTV.
“On the video, she throws the parcel over then she rings the bell after she threw it. Why not ring the bell to find out if there’s someone in first? She wouldn’t have known no one was there because there was a car on the drive.
“It’s shocking but luckily it was clothing but it was anything breakable it would have been broken.”
A spokesperson for Hermes said: "We have apologised to the customer for this unacceptable behaviour. The courier will not be delivering on behalf of Hermes again.”
