Amazon has sacked a delivery driver after a horrified neighbour caught him pooing in her garden.

NHS counsellor Sharon Smith, 53, said she was cooking in her kitchen when a van pulled up outside her home.

A man ran from the vehicle towards her garden and she followed him, suspecting he could be stealing some wood.

But the mum-of-two caught the man mid-squat defecating on her property among the trees, and promptly called the police.

Sharon said he even asked what her problem was and got aggressive as he tried to leave.

She said: ‘I asked what the heck he was doing and he just remained pooing whilst asking me what my problem was – the cheek of it.

‘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 Amazon driver went on to deliver a parcel – with potentially ‘traces of excrement’ – to one of her neighbours in Nuthall, Nottingham.

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

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.

After reporting the incident on July 26 to Amazon, Sharon was told the driver would be removed from his duties while they investigated.

Sharon has been promised a gift voucher from Amazon as a goodwill gesture.

An Amazon spokesperson 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.’
