Watch Uber Eats driver walk off with £40 food delivery

A hotel owner said he was left “shocked” after an Uber Eats delivery driver walked off with his £40 Chinese takeaway, while claiming he'd left it by his front door.

Jon Cawdron, 42, said he would not have got a refund if he hadn’t captured the incident on CCTV and warned more people to be wary of the nasty trick.

The driver, identified as a man called “Gheorghe”, is seen approaching the front door of Jon’s guest house, The Sands Hotel, on Blackpool promenade, Lancashire.

He then takes a picture of the package by the property to confirm that it’s been delivered, but just seconds later, he calmly scoops it up and takes it back to his car.
