    • Thanks. In that case when it comes to preparing my court bundle I will remover the Bradbury v UPS case. And I agree, @occysrazor 's case is the strongest asset I have in defence. Hopefully the necessary literature will be available by the time of my court date.  
    • Some of this seems to hinge on him not being properly instructed by POL or their legal reps. He was said to be an independent expert but doesn't seem to have known that he should reveal all evidence he was aware of and not just the bits that suited Fujitsu/him. I know he asked for immunity from prosecution, is it still the case that Wyn Williams doesn't want to do this? The last I saw there was still a perjury ivestigation.
    • So I like a bit of fun with the horses and have a few profitable tipsters, when i make a profit i re-invest and try more, nice little way to work on the side. This site looked promising however after joining a Telegram group I was not at all happy with the service as it was completely dead.. a week went past... I thought it was brokedn (expecting 14 tips by now)... 2 weeks went passed.. a tip came in about something happening in a few weeks... the month was nearly up (£49 couldnt be recouped by these bets) I complained via email asking for a refund as it was not as advertised, website says 1-2 tips a day, i expected that.  There's no way i could recoup £49 a month on 1 or two tips.  I didnt get a reply. I tried again,  no reply. Ive then had to up the email wording to request Im now really not happy. I get a reply and it appears they agree a refund (this doesn't get processed) Fed up i send a notice before action letter. I then get various emails of a very unprofessional manner and one towards the end that sounds a bit like a threat. I would encourage others to be very cautious about this website and if that was a threat (I know where you live, i have your postcode)  It becomes a police matter.  Im sure, it is just a recording of my personal data so I cannot be allowed in the telegram group again. Either way, is there anything ive missed?

    • He will be grilled thoroughly, however those above him as culpable.
    • Here is the start of the revised letter to IPC.  do not worry about repercussions from CPM they should have enough problems without  picking on you as well. particularly as they know the case against you is lost.   IPC  Waterside House, Macclesfield SK10 9NR Dear IPC, I am writing to complain about a serious breach of the Protection of Freedoms Act 2012 by UKPCM. I feel that as it is more a breach of the Act rather than not just  complying with your Code of Practice which is why I am bypassing your operator. Should you decide to insist that I first complain to your operator, I will instead pass over my complaint to the ICO and the DVLA . My story starts with being issued a  PCN on 8/3/24 which was sent by post on 13/3/24  [deemed delivered 15/3/24] which I did not receive and had to send an sar after receiving the Reminder on 16th April 2024. Despite being not the only motorist who has not received A Notice to keeper from CPM. that is not the reason for my complaint. The reason is that when I received the NTK as a result of the sar I noticed that it stated I had 28 days to pay their demand starting from the day after  the NTK was given.  As the NTK was deemed delivered on the 15th March 2024, the earliest the Reminder could have  been sent was the 13th April 2024 which was a Saturday. Yet not only was the Reminder sent a day early before the 28 day period had elapsed their Reminder averred that the 28 day period had elapsed. This is a serious breach of the Protection of Freedoms Act Schedule 4 S4 [4] 4)The right under this paragraph may only be exercised after the end of the period of 28 days beginning with the day on which the notice to keeper is given. It is also a breach of your own Code of Practice and calls into question their ability to obtain keeper details from the DVLA. I believe it is a breach of my GDPR . I assume that my CPM Reminder is not the only one that has breached the Act so as you will have to contact CPM and presumably the ICO and the DVLA  I will not be expecting a reply from you for 10 days. However I do hope that you can expedite the matter to avoid me complaining to the ICO and the DVLA.                                        Yours Sincerely

    • Hello,

      On 15/1/24 booked appointment with Big Motoring World (BMW) to view a mini on 17/1/24 at 8pm at their Enfield dealership.  

      Car was dirty and test drive was two circuits of roundabout on entry to the showroom.  Was p/x my car and rushed by sales exec and a manager into buying the mini and a 3yr warranty that night, sale all wrapped up by 10pm.  They strongly advised me taking warranty out on car that age (2017) and confirmed it was honoured at over 500 UK registered garages.

      The next day, 18/1/24 noticed amber engine warning light on dashboard , immediately phoned BMW aftercare team to ask for it to be investigated asap at nearest garage to me. After 15 mins on hold was told only their 5 service centres across the UK can deal with car issues with earliest date for inspection in March ! Said I’m not happy with that given what sales team advised or driving car. Told an amber warning light only advisory so to drive with caution and call back when light goes red.

      I’m not happy to do this, drive the car or with the after care experience (a sign of further stresses to come) so want a refund and to return the car asap.

      Please can you advise what I need to do today to get this done. 

      Many thanks

    • We have finally managed to obtain the transcript of this case.

      The judge's reasoning is very useful and will certainly be helpful in any other cases relating to third-party rights where the customer has contracted with the courier company by using a broker.
      This is generally speaking the problem with using PackLink who are domiciled in Spain and very conveniently out of reach of the British justice system.

      Frankly I don't think that is any accident.

      One of the points that the judge made was that the customers contract with the broker specifically refers to the courier – and it is clear that the courier knows that they are acting for a third party. There is no need to name the third party. They just have to be recognisably part of a class of person – such as a sender or a recipient of the parcel.

      Please note that a recent case against UPS failed on exactly the same issue with the judge held that the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties) Act 1999 did not apply.

      We will be getting that transcript very soon. We will look at it and we will understand how the judge made such catastrophic mistakes. It was a very poor judgement.
      We will be recommending that people do include this adverse judgement in their bundle so that when they go to county court the judge will see both sides and see the arguments against this adverse judgement.
      Also, we will be to demonstrate to the judge that we are fair-minded and that we don't mind bringing everything to the attention of the judge even if it is against our own interests.
      This is good ethical practice.

      It would be very nice if the parcel delivery companies – including EVRi – practised this kind of thing as well.

I'm looking for clarification on the law regarding Signs on a private fence.


I recently nailed a proprietary "Private Land Keep Out" sign to a private garden fence after neighbours were filmed trespassing.


The said neighbours quickly removed the sign and kept it, despite a letter asking for its return.


When the police eventually confronted the neighbour three days later she admitted taking the sign off the fence (which involved prising it off with an edged tool) and returned it.


The police have said no offence has been committed by her removing the sign "because she did not want to look at it"


What's more, they have even suggested that to put the sign back up on the fence (which is NOT a shared boundary but is wholly private) may constitute an aggressive act!!!


I cannot believe this is correct in law.


They have suggested to me that to put the sign back up would need a solicitor to pursue civil action, not that for her to have the sign taken down would need the same!


Before making a complaint about the police officers' handling of this matter, I would like clarification, if possible.


The whole thing sounds preposterous - that you can remove a sign you don't like from someone else's property and the property owner can potentially face prosecution for replacing it!

The police are talking rubbish.


If it's on your land then I don't see any thing wrong with putting it back as long as the words used are not offensive.


In particular, you are putting up the sign because they have already been filled trespassing.


On the other hand, I wouldn't have thought that this is the best way to go about it. How about some dialogue with your neighbour to find out why they needed to go onto your land.


Have you any ideas about it? What did they do when they came onto your land?


The removal of the sign is potentially an offence of criminal damage that that seems a fairly extreme procedure to take.


I'm afraid that the police don't prioritise this kind of thing and they prefer always to say this is a civil matter. It's rubbish.


On the other hand, proportional response is always best.


You don't need a solicitor to take action against them. If you wanted to sue them in trespass and that will be the way to go.


I would suggest that you open some face-to-face dialogue and then follow it up with the letter. If that doesn't deal with the problem then you might want to send them a letter telling them that you are disappointed and that you won't accept that this continues.


I'd suggest that you keep your letters informal rather than some strutting quasi legal missive which would normally be written by some pompous solicitor.


Keep it relaxed and informal until the point where you are obliged to go formal. At that point, do it with the court papers

Thank you for your reply. Very much appreciated.


The problem with these people is they are continually pushing boundaries (literally) and trying to grab land which isn't theirs.


Believe me, friendly dialogue was our first response,

but what they have proven repeatedly is that they will say whatever sounds agreeable,

whilst lying outright to your face,

then do the complete opposite of whatever was agreed.


I'm all for proportional response,

and I know it can appear unreasonable or petty to make a big deal out of every small,

seemingly insignificant offence,


the problem with this is that all these small seemingly insignificant offences all start to add up over time until eventually,

almost imperceptibly,

they are claiming land as their own

and elderly residents are being driven from their homes (which is exactly what has happened here).


Whilst I understand that the police would have a hard time claiming in law that my putting up a sign was in any way 'aggressive' or 'confrontational',

if they are happy to allow the same sign to be removed each time then they are in effect encouraging this incremental encroachment.


The next step will be that the neighbours will be claiming the fence is a shared boundary...

then they'll remove it,

knowing that by that stage legal proceedings would be expensive and complicated...

and so it continues.



Not at all...

this is exactly what has happened and continues to happen with adjacent boundaries.


Planning applications are applied for retrospectively in the knowledge that they are almost always allowed to remain and the Council have been lied to in order to get planning applications passed.


If the police are now refusing to act against criminal offences as well,

then it leaves you feeling there is little protection for the average householder against anyone wishing to ride roughshod over their legal rights.


Perhaps the most ludicrous aspect of all this is that despite the neighbours refusing to return the sign even after a written request,

when the police eventually recovered it they claimed there had been 'no offence' because she had handed the sign over!


This is like the police going to the home of a suspected bike thief,

asking 'Did you take that bike',

the thief replying

'Yes... here, take it back' and the police saying there was therefore no theft!


My apologies if this sounds like a rant, but I'm incredibly frustrated about this and a little bit furious :mad2:

you've got them on film trespassing? as bank asked, what is the nature of their trespass?

if so, just sue them.

though, that might 'aggravate' things re being neighbourly. excuse the pun :)

no worries re the rant, rant away.

as has been said, the police dont give a hoot re these things.

what was the nature of the sign. one option cld be to try a more 'friendly' private appearing sign. if thats still removed. sue.?

CIVIL MATTER: the favourite police punchline.

Stealing a sign, on public or private land is an offence and returning it after being caught doesn't cancel the offence committed.

As okokok pointed out, if that was the case, all bike and car thieves would never be arrested.


I don't think there's a "value threshold" in the theft act, so stealing a lolly pop or a car is still theft.

Put up a fence along the perimeter of your land.

Barbed wire works wonders, but you need a sign to warn the burglars.

Remember, you have to look after your burglars...

Yes and No.

Returning an item once caught doesn't mean it wasn't theft at the outset, but the intent at the time of taking does matter.

Not "intending to permanently deprive" at the outset means it was never theft in the first place, and this was precisely the case for vehicles, where the person taking the car said "ahh, but I was 'joyriding' and was going to give it back after!"


That would have effectively prevented a prosecution for theft, and was the rationale for creating the offence of "taking without consent" for motor vehicles ...... they couldn't get the offenders for theft, but can get them for TWOC, regardless of if they say "I never intended to permanently deprive".


So, "bike and car thieves" isn't exactly the best example ......

Very true.


So walking out from Tesco with a tv, being caught in the car park and giving the tv back doesn't amount to theft if the taker says: "I was gonna watch EastEnders and give it back".


I understand the loopholes, but having denied taking the sign in the first place suggests that the neighbour wanted to keep it.


Of course the police will try all avenues to avoid doing paperwork and you can't blame them; for a clean cut simple offence the probably spend an entire day in the office filling useless forms.

I know it doesn't work like that, it was a rhetorical statement.

My point is that the neighbour took the sign and they denied having taken it.


That gives an indication that they intended to keep it, satisfying the conditions of the theft act.

But the police don't want to do any paperwork, so they said to give it back and forget about it.

Only at this point the neighbour admitted having taken the sign.


I don't understand how this same scenario is different in law if you change the characters (op becomes Tesco, neighbour becomes a shopper and the sign becomes a tv).


It's the same concept and the neighbour should have been prosecuted (in an ideal world).

What the police did has just made the neighbour more confident that they can carry on with their harassment campaign without consequences and this can lead to more serious crimes as we hear on the news everyday.

IMO I'd put the sign back up regardless.


Where is this footage of them trespassing??


Have you spoken to your LA and local councillors regarding the neighbours behaviour?


Get some cheap signs, and each time they take them down, replace it, report them to the police each time they steal a sign.


Keep a log of their antics for evidence.


Are these private homes or rented property?

Who ever heard of someone getting a job at the Jobcentre? The unemployed are sent there as penance for their sins, not to help them find work!
