An Amazon driver was sacked for leaving a brutal note that labelled a customer who wasn't at home as "stupid".

Kerry Hodge, 28, from Runcorn, Cheshire, was raging after seeing the note which was left by a driver, who had dumped the piece of paper and parcel in a nearby bin.

The rude, poorly written note gave the mum-of-three quite the shock when they found a handwritten message from the now-sacked delivery driver.

A note from the former Amazon employee caused quite the stir for Kerry at the time, with the fuming mum posting the note and an image of the parcels to Facebook.

The 28-year-old took to Amazon's Facebook page to complain to the retailer about the horrible note she received, which led to the sacking of the driver.

Posting the photos, Kerry said: "What a lovely note to come home to and to see my parcels have been dumped."

Her post back in 2020 had shocked social media users, with one writing that it was "disgusting" to have been left such a note.

The Amazon order was shown to have been dumped behind the black wheelie bin, with several parcels seen propped up on top of black binbags.

Speaking at the time of the incident, Kerry said: "I was very shocked at first then I was angry as I'm presuming he was calling me stupid. I'm not fully sure why the note was left like this.

"It happened outside my house when the card had been posted as I wasn't in my property at the time of delivery. These items were gifts from a group I'm in on Facebook.

"I ordered some artificial flowers. And I was gifted items as well from friends in a group."

Amazon confirmed the driver was no longer in their employment, releasing a statement at the time which read: "The delivery associate will no longer be delivering on behalf of Amazon.

"We have very high standards for our delivery service providers and how they serve customers."
