DPD boss Dwain McDonald,

We are devastated by the news of Don Lane's passing. There will be a strategic review.


Nineteen year DPD driver Don Lane from Dorset died after working through the Christmas peak, his wife spoke out to the Guardian.

The Guardian reported,

A courier for the parcel giant DPD who was fined for attending a medical appointment to treat his diabetes collapsed and died of the disease, it has emerged. Don Lane, 53, from Christchurch in Dorset, missed appointments with specialists because he felt under pressure to cover his round and faced DPD’s £150 daily penalties if he did not find cover, his widow has told the Guardian.
