On 16 January 2014 at Blackfriars Crown Court, a man was convicted of two counts of wounding with intent, after an eviction by a Court bailiff went horribly wrong. A lawful Possession Order and Warrant for Eviction had been obtained by the Landlord. However it was found that little was known about the man who was being evicted by the housing association. The bailiffs went ill prepared and the tenant is reported to have shot at the bailiff and the housing officer.
This is an extreme response and the situation need not be so bad.
