Presents found on roadside



PHIL King is disgusted with Australia Post's inaction after a pile of Christmas courier packages were dumped on the side of a North Rockhampton road and ransacked.

The Parkhurst Motel and Van Park owner said someone brought about five opened courier packages to his business last week.

"One of the packages had our address on it,'' he said.

"We were given about five other packages with Parkhurst addresses on them.''

When he discovered what had happened, he said he immediately called Australia Post, but was given little assistance.

"They still haven't done anything about it. These people will never know what happened to their presents.''

Spokesperson for Australia Post, Louise Corrigan, said problems like these are taken very seriously and followed-up.

"We will be working with the customer to bring about a resolution. We will be investigating it thoroughly,'' she said.

One opened present was for a young girl named Jessica.

"This girl will never know what her uncle got for her,'' said Mr King, who believes the courier packages were dumped and then later ransacked.
