Amazon Delivery Driver Who Was Robbed on Duty Gets Fired

Martyn Gilham and his family.

An Amazon delivery driver who was robbed while delivering parcels by a thief who stole 62 packages has been sacked. And to add insult to injury, Martyn Gilham has been told the cost of repairs to the van and replacing the parcels will come out of his wages.

The 28-year-old was forced to the ground by a man dressed all in black who grabbed his keys as he delivered packages in Coventry on December 28. The thief escaped with the parcels and Martyn’s wallet, which was in the back, but police later recovered the van. A week later, the dad-of-one received a text from his boss at Fast Despatch Transport Ltd in Leicester, an agency that provides Amazon with couriers.

The message read: ‘Still waiting for police to release the van. About work, we will not use your service any more. ‘About your earning, we have to wait to see what will be the bill for the van and for the parcels inside and you receive the rest.’

More than 60 parcels were still in the delivery van when Gilham was told to hand over the keys by an assailant on December 28. The van was later recovered by police who have held the vehicle while they carry out forensic checks.
