    • March 23: As the coronavirus crisis escalates, the UK is placed into lockdown with strict limitations on travel. The Government guidelines state: “You should not be visiting family members who do not live in your home.” The prime minister tells the UK public they "must stay at home". People are warned not to meet friends or family members they do not live with. Those with symptoms had already been told to self-isolate     Friday 27 March: Downing Street On the day Cummings ran out of No 10, his wife, Mary Wakefield, appears to have been already ill, according to her Spectator article about the experience, in which she says: “My husband did rush home to look after me.”   Both Boris Johnson and Health Secretary Matt Hancock test positive for coronavirus, while chief medical officer Chris Whitty says he has symptoms of the disease and is self-isolating.   Mr Cummings said: "I suddenly got a call from my wife who was looking after our four-year-old child. She told me she suddenly felt badly ill." He went home and after a couple of hours his wife felt better and he returned to work. "There were many critical things at work and she asked me to return [to work] in the afternoon and I did." He then "drove up to Durham that night arriving at roughly midnight" with his family.     In spectator articles on 24th and 25th April * Wakefield (wife) wrote in the spectator that Cummings said “I feel weird” and collapsed 24 hours after he came home to look after her * She went on to explain that for the next 10 days “Dom couldn’t get out of bed. Day in, day out for ten days he lay doggo with a high fever and spasms that made the muscles lump and twitch in his legs.” * Cummings wrote that “at the end of March and for the first two weeks of April I was ill, so we were both shut in together.” * The following days, by Wakefield’s account, were a mixture of family idyll and health nightmare, as she made a “palace out of polystyrene packaging” with their son … even as Cummings’s breathing got so bad that she feared he should be in hospital. But 10 days after her husband first fell ill, she said, he began to feel better – just as Boris Johnson went into hospital. That would place the improvement in his condition around Sunday 5 April,     Sat March 28th Is apparently the day Cummings said “I feel weird” and collapsed 24 hours after he came home to look after her His wife went on to explain that for the next 10 days “Dom couldn’t get out of bed. Day in, day out for ten days he lay doggo with a high fever and spasms that made the muscles lump and twitch in his legs.” Cummings wrote that “at the end of March and for the first two weeks of April I was ill, so we were both shut in together.” 10 days from March 28th – would take us to the 7th April.   Mon March 30: Downing Street confirms Mr Cummings is suffering from coronavirus symptoms and is self-isolating.   Tuesday 31 March/1st April: Durham The police have said that on 31 March they were “made aware of reports” of Cummings’s presence in the area and had then contacted the family to “reiterate the appropriate advice around essential travel”.   2 April: During the night, Mr Cummings' four-year-old son "threw up and had a bad fever". Following medical advice, an ambulance took the child to hospital. He was accompanied by Mr Cummings' wife   3 April: Mr Cummings' son spent the night in hospital and woke up the next day having "recovered". He was tested for coronavirus and his mother, who was with him at the hospital, was told "they should return home". According to Mr Cummings, there were no taxis so he "drove to the hospital, picked him up and returned home". He said he "did not leave the car or have any contact with anybody on this short trip".   Sunday 5 April: The ‘Abba’ sighting (despite claims of ten days where he couldn’t get up with a high fever) Cummings alledgedly seen in Garden with AbbA blaring But 10 days after her husband first fell ill, she said, he began to feel better – just as Boris Johnson went into hospital. Which would place the improvement in his condition around Sunday 5 April, … Although the claimed 10 days after the 28th – the earliest point at which Cummings was said to have been symptomatic – would be the 7 April. The Guardian approaches Downing Street about the story, only to be told by a spokesman: “It will be a no comment on that one.” Mr Cummings said "after I started to recover, one day in the second week, I tried to walk outside the house". He confirmed he, his wife and his son went for a walk into woods owned by his father and it was at this point he was seen by passers-by but his family "had no interaction with them". The exact date is not clear but his second week isolating in Durham would have between 4-11th   6 April: At some point in the week leading up to this date, Mr Cummings discussed his decision to travel to Durham with the prime minister. "When we were both sick and in bed," he said, "I mentioned to him what I had done. Unsurprisingly given the condition we were in, neither of us remember the conversation in any detail."   Fri April 10: Number 10 is again contacted for comment regarding Mr Cumming’s trip by the Guardian. Instead of defending the journey, officials declined to comment.   Fri 10th/Sat 11th April: The 14-day period of Cummings’s isolation would have expired on 10/11th April, assuming it is counted from when Wakefield appears to have first fallen ill on 27 March or when Cummings fell ill 24 hours later.   11 April: Believing he had recovered by this date, albeit "feeling weak and exhausted", Mr Cummings said he "sought expert medical advice". "I explained our family's symptoms and all the timings and asked if it was safe to return to work on Monday or Tuesday, seek childcare and so on. I was told that it was safe and I could return to work"   Sunday 12 April: Barnard Castle Wakefield’s birthday, according to Companies House records – they allegedly made a trip to Barnard Castle, a charming town 30 miles from the Cummings’s family property, described on the English Heritage website as having “fantastic views” and “plenty to do for families on a day out”. That detail emerged in an interview with Robin Lees, a retired chemistry teacher who lives in the town. Lees, who says he has a photographic memory, told the Guardian he was “a bit gobsmacked” to see Cummings, and then was so incensed that he made a note of the family car’s numberplate and checked it online when he got home. Cummings acknowledges he drove to Barnard Castle, 30 miles from his parents' home in Durham, with his wife and child. He explained this episode as needing to test his driving was fine before making the long drive back to London. He said he'd been having problems with his vision   Tuesday 14 April: London The Guardian asked Wakefield to confirm whether the family had been in London throughout the lockdown period, but received no reply. Cummings was photographed back in Downing Street on 14 April   Sunday 19 April: ‘bluebell’ woods - Cummings and Wakefield in Houghall woods? Could Cummings have then gone back to the north-east from London? Downing Street is emphatic that he did not. The denial came after another witness claimed to the Guardian and Sunday Mirror that they had seen Cummings and Wakefield on a country walk in Houghall Woods, a beauty spot near his parents’ property in Durham. According to this account, Cummings said: “Aren’t the bluebells lovely?” Cummings says he did not return to Durham   Monday 20 April Cummings seen in London again   May 23: Downing Street statement: “Owing to his wife being infected with suspected coronavirus and the high likelihood that he would himself become unwell, it was essential for Dominic Cummings to ensure his young child could be properly cared for.” The statement said: “At no stage was he or his family spoken to by the police about this matter, as is being reported. “His actions were in line with coronavirus guidelines. Mr Cummings believes he behaved reasonably and legally.” Speaking outside his home, Mr Cummings reiterated: “I behaved reasonably and legally”. When a reporter suggested to him that his actions did not look good, he replied: “Who cares about good looks? “It’s a question of doing the right thing. It’s not about what you guys think.” Later at the daily Downing Street briefing, Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said Mr Cummings had the PM’s “full support” and that Mr Johnson “knew that he was unwell and that he was in lockdown”. Mr Shapps said it had always been permissible for families to travel to be closer to their relatives as long as they “go to that location and stay in that location”. Meanwhile, deputy chief medical officer for England, Dr Jenny Harries, said that travelling during lockdown was permissible if “there was an extreme risk to life”, with a “safeguarding clause” attached to all advice to prevent vulnerable people being stuck at home with no support.   Health Secretary Matt Hancock and Chancellor of the Exchequer Rishi Sunak have tweeted their support for Mr Cummings.   Education Secretary Gavin Williamson said on Monday morning that Mr Cummings had "set out absolutely clearly and absolutely categorically he didn't break the rules and didn't break the law". The attorney general, Suella Braverman, tweet on Saturday in which she quoted the full text of the No 10 statement on Boris Johnson’s chief aide in which the prime minister said he had behaved “responsibly and legally”.   (Disgraceful) Boris Johnson said at the weekend Cummings acted “responsibly and legally and with integrity”   “The PM’s risible defence of Cummings is an insult to all those who have made such sacrifices to ensure the safety of others,” said Johne Inge, the bishop of Worcester, on Twitter.   “What planet are they on?” asked a front page headline in the Daily Mail, an influential right-wing paper usually supportive of Johnson.   https://descrier.co.uk/politics/dominic-cummings-and-wife-tried-to-cover-up-lockdown-breach-in-articles-for-the-spectator/   https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2020/may/24/dominic-cummings-timeline-what-we-know-about-his-movements   https://www.eveningexpress.co.uk/news/uk/timeline-the-coronavirus-lockdown-and-dominic-cummings-trip-to-durham/   https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-52784290   https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2020/may/25/attorney-general-faces-calls-to-resign-defends-dominic-cummings-suella-braverman   https://uk.reuters.com/article/uk-health-coronavirus-britain-cummings/what-planet-are-they-on-no-respite-for-johnson-and-aide-idUKKBN2310UE   https://cyprus-mail.com/2020/05/25/what-plant-are-they-on-press-slams-johnson-and-cummings/

What I require

I calculate that you have taken £XXXXX plus £XXX which you have charged me in overdraft interest for the sum which you have taken. Total £XXXXX .

Nothing more to add, you are at same stage as me, except that summary cause limit is £1500 - £750 is the small claims limit, and the actions cost the same to raise, so raise Summary actions.

 

Also YES send RD so you have proof they were sent so bank can't pretend they never got them. Also a technicality but before you can raise a court action you have to state you have attempted to get the money back by other means so it would be useful to send RD for that reason too.

 

Good luck

Hmm, well it is over the £1500 (just)so you'd either need to (a) split it or (b) restrict it to the £1500 and write off the £23.

HI there

 

I would set out your claims by account number. By that I mean on first account charges were X, second letter for second account where charges were X and third letter for third account where charges were X. You dont have to start splitting things up until you get to the court stage.

 

At that point in time it might be worth considering whether to just let the £23+ on your last account slide because if you claim for £1500 you can get it all through summary cause.

 

I would do things in stages though because you might be surprised and get the money back before you even have to raise an action. I have a couple of claims settled and it seems to be easier if you are claiming less than £500 - well is has been for me anyway!!!! :D

 

So your checklist should be as follows:

 

You have send off your SAR and have calculated what is owed to you. You have set it out on the spreadsheets but not calculated interest at this point in time. You send your prelim letter with a copy of your spreadsheet attached. One letter for each account and one spreadsheet for each account. You then send them off recorded delivery and wait for their reply.

 

Dont be surprised if BOS doesnt reply to prelim. After 14 days send the LBA with a copy of the spreadsheet to them giving them 14 days to settle. If no reply within 14 days then start your claim.

 

Try to adopt a systematic approach to it because it makes it easier. If you break down something into small chunks it kind off makes the whole task less daunting and you can keep track of things easier.

 

I hope this has helped.

Good luck. Go for it. Its your money and you deserve it back.

 

Kind regards

Annie

Yes, send a copy of the statement of charges but dont add interest until you are taking it to the court action stage.

 

Good luck

PS: I got a letter from BOS today advising me that I would have to pay an additional £10 to obtain statements for my business account. I phoned them and told them that this is not in fact the case and that my original SAR included that bank account. As BOS is all one company then only £10 is payable. Also asked why it has taken so long for them to get back to me as I sent request in November 2006. Told them they better make it quick or I was reporting the whole incident to the Information Commissioner after 21st January and I thought that I had been more than patient waiting for the information to arrive. She told me that SAR does not only relate to statements. I advised her that any information they had would be great as I wasnt only interested in statements. She went off the phone less confident than when she came on and said she would get something in the post as soon as possible.

 

They really are trying to prolong things and its not on. So, stick to your schedule and get on to the next step asap.

HI

I think you are at the same stage as me

I received a reply to my first letter today giving me a reference no and saying a Customer Relations Manager will investigate and reply no later than 4 weeks. Did your letter say this? I'm sure I read somewhere to ignore this and keep to the schedule, any suggestions

You can claim up to £1500 through summary cause in Scotland. Alternatively, if you have an address you can use for mail to be delivered to in England you can claim up to £5000 through the English system. I have just started a claim using moneyclaim online and it has been accepted. I gave my friend's address in Norwich as the english address. HBOS have an address at trinity road, halifax so that may be a way to do it to claim more in one go.

 

Hope this helps

i know i could of done it that way, using an address in england, but don't know anyone that i could trust in england, and also decided to do it this way (break the claims into smaller claims) to keep it under the £750 and i'm finding it easier to deal with this way, even though BOS replied on all 5 separate claims in 1 letter!! but i still don't know if i can claim all 5 claims through the courts at the same time or i can only have 1 claim going through the court each time? also if i'm on benefits do i still have to pay the £39 if yes do i add this now with the interest??

Hi,

you can use a mailing address..........I set one up online, it costs £45 a quarter. Strange thing is although the English Courts insist on an English postal address all court mail has been sent direct to my home address!

cheers for that info, but can't afford the £45 extra, would rather just keep it in the local sherriffs court,but can any1 tell me:

 

1) can i claim all 5 claims through the courts at the same time or can i only have 1 claim going through the court each time?

 

2) also if i'm on benefits do i still have to pay the £39 if yes do i add this now with the interest??

 

cheers

Hi,

 

I think you have to claim one at a time as the judge may lump all your claims together. Not sure if that's true, but read it somewhere.

 

Regards.

 

Scott.

Also....if you claim in one go then you'll probably get to keep your accounts. Claim more than once and they'll likely close your account. Not sure how important this is to you......
