Rival delivery drivers fight after showing up to collect same order

Deliver-oo wants some? Rival delivery drivers fight outside a takeaway after showing up to collect the same food order

  • Footage was recorded near Subway in Paddington, London, on Monday morning
  • Group of five delivery drivers stand on pavement before the brawl breaks out
  • The dispute reportedly began after several drivers showed up for the same order

Rival delivery drivers were caught on camera fighting outside a takeaway after multiple riders showed up to collect the same food order.

The footage was recorded by a Subway store near Paddington train station, London, in the early hours of Monday morning. 

In the video, a group of four delivery drivers are stood on the pavement outside the takeaway shop.

One, who appears to be wearing a red hoodie, is being held back as a fifth rider walks past and heads directly toward the huddle. 

But the man in red breaks free and pushes another member of the group with both hands.

He then raises his right fist above his head as if preparing to punch one of the other drivers before it is intercepted.

Another of the drivers, who is wearing a white helmet, then makes a jab which causes the whole group to become embroiled in the affray.

They begin to use their motorcycle helmets to batter each other which make contact with a thud.

One man pulls his hood down from his head before suddenly grabbing the man in the white helmet around the neck and dragging him to the floor.

The pair clatter into a metal roadworks sign before one begins kicking his opponent repeatedly while he continues to lay on the floor.

A series of minor scuffles continue along the pavement as the men continue to shout at each other and the video ends shortly afterwards.

The footage was originally shared to an Uber Eats and Deliveroo Facebook group where it sparked condemnation from social media users. 

One man wrote: ‘Stupid people doing stupid things.’ 

Another added: ‘Stupid people, violence never solved anything.’ 

And a third said: ‘Sod that! They can have the order, leave me alone.’ 

The dispute reportedly began after several drivers showed up for the same order. It is thought that they had used ‘fake GPS’ to falsify their locations and bump up their position in the queue to receive jobs without actually being in the vicinity. Pictured: Subway in Paddington

The dispute reportedly began after several drivers showed up for the same order.

It is thought that they had used ‘fake GPS’ to falsify their locations and bump up their position in the queue to receive jobs without actually being in the vicinity. 

It is thought that riders for companies such as Uber Eats or Deliveroo might even use multiple devices to fake a variety of locations to maximise the number of jobs they receive. 

In 2017, it was reported that Uber were attempting to crack down on the number of people spoofing their locations by sending warnings to those caught using false GPS co-ordinates.
