    • It because you an opportunity to invite the court to make a discretionary award of damages above the value of the item you are claiming. I don't think it's an opportunity to go crazy. A hundred quid would be quite a significant victory which would make your point very nicely
    • Did you ever get any explanation from POPLA BB about their confusing behaviour?
    • Excellent idea, as they seem to be experts in the matter of "GDPR regulations" (sic) they should have no trouble at all in handling such a request.   Thank you for bringing to my attention the Act above I had not considered this as a string to my bow.

There are many reports of debtors being arrested for obstructing a bailiff (Section 68.1 of Section 12 of the Tribunal Courts & Enforcement Act 2007) or more commonly; for removing a car clamp but it is rare to read a report about a debtor being injured during a bailiff visit.

 

This particular press article featured on SCOOP yesterday. The background to the matter is that the debtor (a young mother) had been fined for using a TV without a valid licence. The balance of the court fine was £200. For reasons that are not known, she did not deal with the debt at the Compliance stage (when the fees were just £75) and accordingly, the debt was passed to an enforcement agent.

 

It would seem from the article that bailiffs were attempting to apply a wheel clamp to her vehicle and upon witnessing this, the debtor admitted that she started 'running around' her car 'like a crazy woman in a panic'. Foolishly (in my opinion), she then picked up one half of the wheel clamp and flung it across the garden towards the gate. Following this, a struggle broke out between her and the bailiff and it was later discovered that she had suffered a broken bone in her wrist from the incident.

 

Police are investigating and examining footage from the bailiff's body-worn camera.

 

A neighbour volunteered to pay the debt of £525 to avoid her vehicle being taken.

Well lets hope the footage from the Body Camera doesn't suffer a malfunction. Was the neighbour a witness ?
