Unlucky Delivery Driver Almost Loses Trousers After Falling Over Customer's Gate
An unlucky delivery driver fell over a customer's gate and was left dangling upside down by his trousers. Watch the moment here:
Angela Davies from Keighley, West Yorkshire, was waiting for her for a delivery of fabric when her doorbell rang at 6pm.
Because the roll of fabric was heavy, the DX Freight driver helpfully carried the parcel in to the house for Angela, while social distancing.
But after he'd left the house, he forgot there was a gate at the end of the path, tumbling over it as he completed the delivery on his phone.
The unlucky driver got his trousers caught on top of the gate, with Angela helping to lift him free, while the pair couldn't help but laugh about the whole situation.
Angela said: "We're still giggling about it now. It was a whole catalogue of silliness.
"I came out with my arms open because I wanted to make sure I was socially distanced, but then realised he was hooked on the swirls by his trousers.
"I grabbed on to his ankle with my right hand and then lifted him up into the air to try and relieve some weight because he was hanging off the floor.
"When I managed to unhook him, I forgot he wasn't already on the ground and let go and he just fell to the floor. That's why I said 'I'm so sorry'.
"He got up and walked away laughing. His trouser pocket was completely caught up in the scroll.

"It was twisted round because he'd fallen forward but then tried to turn around and unhook himself.
"It had twisted the whole of his trousers and you can see on the camera that they had come down a bit and his pants were out."
Angela thought he might have been in a hurry as her dogs - seven-year-old German shepherd Mila and one-year-old Labrador Sable - were barking at the disturbance in the kitchen.
Angela said: "He'd have been through the gate a few times before this happened. He went through our gate once to get to the door and then two more times when he carried in the fabric for me.
"I think he was just in such a hurry to get away as it was the end of his shift and he wasn't sure if the dogs were going to come out.
"Coupled with that, he was staring at his phone after taking a photo of the delivery and went head over feet over the gate.
"I was just about to close the door when I heard the commotion and I opened it and saw him over the top of it.
"It's a bit of a standing joke the dogs bark at visitors and that people think 'I hope they're locked away'.
"The pair of them are harmless but it can be a bit of a shock for people seeing Mila jumping up at the window."
DX Freight were contacted for comment.
