Police assist bailiffs evicting squatters from former Allied Irish bank in Whetstone High Road

Police riot vans gathered in Whetstone High Road this morning to assist in the eviction of squatters from a former bank.

Officers from Barnet Police were called to the Allied Irish bank, in High Road, near to the junction with Oakleigh Road North, to assist the high court sheriff at 9am.

Several police units were spotted outside the building while the bailiffs executed a county court order to evict the occupiers.

No arrests were made.

The Police are there to enforce the law ... maybe you read the story wrong so in that case let me clarify -

The bailiffs act in their capacity of bailiffs, executing a court warrant to evict jobless, lazy, smelly crusties.

The Police on the other hand, are present to ensure that the crusties do not obstruct the bailiffs in executing the warrant to evict them.

Maybe the Police should have attended when the bank owner arrived to check on his property to see a load of drunk hooligans sat in his bank ... or maybe he left the back door open again ... silly bank owner
