Woman horrified to find Amazon delivery driver taking a poo in her garden

A WOMAN was shocked when she spotted an Amazon delivery driver taking a poo in her garden.

NHS counsellor Sharon Smith, 53, was cooking in her kitchen in Nuthall, Nottingham on July 26 when a van pulled up outside her home.

A man ran from the vehicle into her garden and Sharon followed him fearing he was stealing wood from her.

The mum-of-two then caught the man squatting among the trees and pooing on her property.

Sharon says after asking him to leave, she called the police.

She says the man turned out to be an Amazon driver who went on to deliver a parcel to one of Sharon's neighbours.

Police attended the scene and questioned the delivery driver who claimed he was desperate for the loo.

He said he was not feeling well and did not realise the grounds were part of a private garden.

The decision was made not to arrest the Amazon employee on the grounds that he would clean up the mess and his employer would be notified of the incident.


Sharon said: "I cannot express how shocked I was, I could not believe what I was seeing in this day and age.

"When he pulled up and ran to the garden, I thought he was a builder stealing wood or something so I chased after him."

Sharon said the man ignored her when she asked what he was doing.

"He just remained pooing whilst asking me what my problem was - the cheek of it," she said.

"He messed with the wrong woman - I'm a blue belt in taekwondo, and the anger and rage he saw was enough to put the fear of God in him.

"I made it clear I was calling the police and if he moved he'd regret it. He emerged from the bush quite aggressive but I was angrier than him so kept him there till my husband and then the police arrived."


She said the delivery driver then dropped off a parcel at her neighbour's house.

"To openly take a poo, that's just not the done thing! I even asked him - well, screamed at him - if he thought that was acceptable and he just said that he needed to go," she said.

"I think the bigger problem is what Amazon expect their drivers to do for toilet breaks as people will be reluctant to let them use their toilet due to Covid."

After reporting the incident to Amazon, Sharon was told that the driver would be removed from duties whilst they investigated what had happened.

Sharon has been promised a gift voucher that she is yet to receive as a goodwill gesture from Amazon.

A spokesperson for Amazon said: "This does not reflect the high standards we have for our delivery partners.

"The driver will no longer be delivering on behalf of Amazon."

The Sun Online has contacted Nottinghamshire Police for comment.

Amazon sales jumped 40%, Facebook profit increased by 98% and Apple posted more than $11BILLION profit in last quarter
