On Tuesday, Able Investigations successfully managed to move a number of travellers from an insurance brokers’ car park.
The group of 26 caravans were based on the private land, located near the M48 Severn Crossing, after they settled there on Monday evening. Having previously evicted the group from the BAE site in Filton earlier in the week, Able Investigationswase aware that the group may act aggressively.
Threats of Violence
After peacefully being asked to leave the Brightside Group car park, members of the group began to act aggressively towards our enforcement team, making repeated threats of violence. The threats escalated, with members throwing faecal matter at the team of bailiffs.
Due to this, and other threats of violence, Able Investigations decided that a police presence was required, and contact local forces for assistance. Fortunately, the police were not required to act, and the group began to leave the site.
Luckily, the trouble had minimal effect on the working day and security of Brightside Group, with the only impact being the camp had fewer available parking spaces.
Dealing with traveller eviction
Evicting travellers from your land can be a complex procedure if not dealt with properly.
Using an enforcement agency, like Able Investigations, to assist with the traveller eviction means your land is repossessed quickly and legally. Operating under Common Law, Section 61 of the Criminal Justice Act, and Section 77 of the Local Authorities Act, our team can respond quickly and legally, usually clearing land within 24 to 48 hours.
