We've heard of parcels being left in bins, but a van seems a bit extreme, even by some delivery service standards.

Still, that's what Ian Moore saw from his doorbell camera as a distressed delivery driver chased down his van.

The 47-year-old was working from home when the doorbell went, capturing the comical moment.

Ian said: "I'd ordered something, but I didn't know when it was coming - usually you get a notification but this was a company I'd never received a parcel from before.

"I was at work, and the doorbell went. I don't usually check it but I checked it and actually watched it live and couldn't believe what was going on.

"I turned it on, and the doorbell is about two seconds delayed so I just saw him chasing after the van and it hit the wheelie bins." Yep, safe to say the delivery, and the van, weren't exactly handled with care.

Still, Ian being the absolute gent that he is was worried about the driver, you know in case the massive van crushed him.

Though as soon as he saw that the delivery guy was okay he saw the funny side of things.

He said: "It's not very often you get things like that on your camera - usually it's just someone knocking and that's it.

"It was quite lucky he didn't go into our garden wall or another car. It was definitely a dopey moment."

Hilariously, the driver didn't deliver the parcel to Ian but dropped it off a few doors down, assuming that nobody was in.

"I collected the parcel from my neighbour and asked her 'was he okay?' and she said 'he was a bit flustered'.

"I showed her the video and she was laughing her head off. She said 'he never mentioned anything but he did look a bit flustered."

We'd be pretty flustered too if we went bowling with a bunch of bins.

While Ian was initially going to keep the footage to himself, he was a bit miffed that the driver never picked up the bins.

"I drove up the street and thought what a lazy job - he's done that and not even put the bin back," Ian said.

Hey, at least he got his parcel we'd seen some deliveries lobbed on roofs.
