I was left with a black eye after delivery driver threw a package over my fence which hit me in the face

A NAN got a black eye after she was struck in the face by a package hurled by a delivery driver.

Marcia Hart, 78, who was already partially sighted, was left shocked and injured after the DPD courier launched the parcel over her communal garden fence.

Door-cam footage shows the “annoying” delivery man asking Marcia to sign for her neighbour’s item — but she makes it clear she could not because she does not know them.

He is seen weighing up his options, before quickly glancing behind him, possibly to see if he is being watched. He then decides to lob the parcel over the fence — just as Marcia was walking round to talk to him at the gate.

The footage shows the driver take a photo of the door before walking off at pace.
However, former lawyer Marcia claims the parcel struck her flush on the left eye, which has been badly bruised and grazed.

Marcia, from Westcliff-on-Sea in Essex, said of Saturday afternoon’s incident: “I had been reading in the communal garden.

“He was ringing the doorbell and just ranting, so I went to tell him off. It was annoying me and I tried to explain I don’t know my neighbours so I can’t collect it.

“He kept moaning so I went outside to open the gate where he was and it came over and whacked me.

“I was shocked and horrified.  It wasn’t too heavy and I don’t know what was inside but it gave me a black eye and grazes.

“By the time I had realised what had happened, the driver had left. I was stunned.

It was horrible.”

Marcia went on: “Why on earth would they do that? It’s wrong.”

She contacted The Sun after we told of a DHL driver who threw a £50 scooter over dad Paul Hepworth’s 8ft wall in Houghton-le-Spring, Tyne and Wear.

The scooter — a Christmas present — survived, though its packaging was badly damaged.

DPD was approached for comment.
