Delivery firm Yodel has apologised after a courier delivering a parcel ended up throwing it on the roof when there was no answer at the door.
The company said the employee was "overly-enthusiastic" and misjudged his throw as he aimed for an open window. He later returned with a ladder to retrieve the package.
Ajmal Aziz, who is reportedly from Bordesley Green, took a picture of the note which had been left by the delivery driver which said: “Stuck on roof- sorry!”
He tweeted the images to Yodel alongside the message: "Surprised your delivery driver decided to throw the package on the roof? Any reason why?"
Mr Aziz is a friend of the resident who lives in Kent. After investigating Yodel blamed an "overly enthusiastic" delivery man for the incident.
