Bailiffs: 1 Citizens: 0

As our British readers may recall, the law has been changed recently so that bailiffs are allowed to kick down doors and people in order to get the money owed.

Well, this law has already claimed its first victim.  Via the BBC:

Andy Miller, 78, a retired pub landlord and father who had recently returned from hospital after a stroke, collapsed and died from a heart attack whilst being forced to a cashpoint by baliffs ‘under duress’.

The father-of-five collapsed last week on his way to a cash machine in Accrington, while the bailiff parked and waited for the money.

The death is not being treated as suspicious.

Indeed, its not suspicious.  Its entirely clear why he died.  Expect more of this in months to come.

  1. This is the same company that were on the BBC whistleblower program in September 2006 for their terrible collection methods.
