A delivery driver has been sacked after he was filmed eating a customer's food and resealing the containers in India. 

The video was shot in Madurai and shows a man sitting on the back of a motorbike with a delivery bag.

He can be seen tucking into several containers of food, resealing them before placing them back into the bag.

"We have spoken to him at length and while we understand that this was a human error in judgement, we have taken him off our platform," it said in a statement.

In line with its "zero tolerance policy",  Zomato said it will soon introduce tamper-proof tapes and other precautionary measures in response.
