THIS is the shocking moment a Yodel driver lobs a parcel 12ft in the air – leaving it stuck on top of anti-bird spikes.
Customer Suzi Ashworth had to rope in a neighbour with a broom to retrieve it from outside an office building window.
The 42-year-old, from Folkestone, Kent, received a notification from Yodel sayingher parcel had been left in a "safe place on her porch".
But the artist was baffled as she doesn't have a one.
She then went around the street asking local businesses if they had received anything, only to discover it had been thrown above an art studio.
CCTV captured the courier standing in the middle of the road and looking up at a window with the package in hand.
Without even attempting to knock on a door or speak to anyone, he then wanders closer before launching the item into the air towards a window.
The parcel lands directly on the anti-bird spikes, impaling the display item inside.
The driver then nonchalantly snaps a picture on his phone to show proof of the delivery before strolling away.
A second clip from later that day shows Suzi trying to retrieve the item on a ladder but unable to reach it with a broom handle.
Two men then step in to hold the base of a step ladder while a third man finally manages to remove the parcel from the metal spikes.

Suzi complained to Yodel, which insisted it had taken "drastic measures" with the courier involved.
Suzi said: "Maybe he deserved some measure, retraining, or a telling off.
"But I think the real problem with Yodel is not one individual employee but a culture of unrealistic delivery schedule demands on employees combined with the distrustful approach towards their staff in the form of GPS tracking exact employee movements – plus their deliberately difficult customer contact system.
"We borrowed a ladder and had some difficulty getting it down as the office window it landed near was unable to open for some reason.
"It was completely wrecked as it was a polystyrene display item and was impaled by the pigeon spikes, dented by the throw and then tapped with a broom handle until we could free it."
A Yodel spokesperson said: "We take driver behaviour very seriously and this incident clearly does not meet our standards.
"We have taken appropriate action with the driver following an investigation and are in touch with the customer to apologise."
