    Hello,

    This afternoon I witnessed a very angry delivery man smash a neighbour's parcel against a wall after writing out a 'sorry we missed you card'. I managed to get a film of it on my phone. I couldn't see exactly where he posted the card but I posted a note in the letterbox of who I believe the parcel was for, saying what I had witnessed and offering to send the video.

    One of my initial thoughts was to write to a newspaper reporting the incident and I am posting for advice on whether that should be something I could do or on what action I should take up next. If anyone has any thoughts I'd really appreciate it.

    Best wishes!

    Great idea, IMO! Did you get the name of the company he works for - did he have a uniform, or did you spot a branded works van? Offer it as a story to the papers / magazines, and if you have no luck how about posting it as a YouTube video warning against this courier in your postal area? (You could of course also report it to the chap's company - find a head office email address...)
