    A delivery driver appeared to be having the shift from hell after he was spotted using a wheelie bin to escape an angry customer's lock-in attempt.

    With the gates locked and the customer furious with a botched parcel order, it appeared the delivery driver was trapped with no way out.

    In a now viral TikTok clip, a user shared the heated back-and-forth between a driver, who can be heard saying: "Trust me, you will never see this phone."

    A furious woman then appears, brandishing a receipt and a passport in her hand, replying: "I'm going to never see this phone now?"

    Although there appeared to be a lack of context over what the back-and-forth rage was about, it was clear that the postie had been trapped against his will.

    In a scene that did not quite replicate The Great Escape, the DPD delivery driver was seen dragging a wheelie bin, mounting it and clambering over the fence to freedom.

    His daring escape comes after the raving woman attempted to grab the parcel in the postie's pocket, who told her to "Get the f**k away from here."

    The TikTok reel was captioned: "When DPD won't give you your parcel, so you lock them in."

    The incident exploded, with people mixed on whether or not the response of a lock-in over a refusal to deliver parcels was all that warranted.

    One wrote: "You've just committed a crime. Not him."

    A handful of comments questioned the suspicious actions put to video, with one saying: "Why was he escaping? There's definitely more to this."

    A DPD spokesperson speaking to Daily Star said: "Our drivers are instructed to deliver items such as phones, only if they are sure of the identity of the individual they are delivering to.

    "If they have any doubts about any aspect of the delivery, they will return the item to our depot and await further instructions before reattempting delivery, protecting our customers' products, our drivers and our reputation for great service."
