In light of further evidence from the high court I have written a new blog post, pleasae find it here
Bailiffs moved in on 29 January, with dogs to remove Paula from
Milk up Bank farm, which was sheltering 350 animals at the time, Paula Campbell
has run her farm as Rainbow Ark Animal Sanctuary for many years, encouraging
visitors and school parties to learn about the animals living there. There have
been ongoing problems with the mortgage because an assessor had valued another
property wrongly, however Paula had stayed in touch with the financers Redstone
Mortgage Company, and has contacted the ombudsman, and she has done everything
she could to keep Rainbow Ark running and her animals cared for.
When the Bailiffs arrived with dogs Paula Campbell collapsed
and was admitted to hospital, Paula was told that if she didn't leave the farm she would be sectioned. Several days later together with her son Paula
was allowed back into the farmhouse where they barricaded themselves in, while Paula was inside the water was cut off so no fresh water was available at the farmhouse, an engineer from the water board attempted to enter the farm to restore the water supply but was turned away by security. Bailiffs spent
the nights employing scare tactics to intimidate Paula and her son.
“K9” security firm blocked the right of way through the farm and refused to
allow supporters to deliver water and medical supplies to Paula at Milk Up Bank
Farmhouse. After six days Paula Campbell,was told she could collect water and was ushered off the property still maintaining that the eviction is
illegal and that she did not want to leave her property. Paula says she will continue to fight for justice. The case is under appeal and Paula has an injunction to stop Bailiffs damaging or destroying any more of her property.
It doesn’t take much digging to find that Redstone Mortgage
Company was fined £630,000 in 2010 by the Financial Services Authority for their
poor treatment of some of their customers. The over valuation of the first
property is a fraud that property value assessors seem to be committing up and
down the country as a way of allowing developers to step in and purchase
property cheaply. “K9” the firm of bailiffs
employed have behaved unlawfully at several points; closing of the right of way
brought them to the attention of Durham Council who advised that the right of
way must remain open. Police aiding and abetting bailiffs from K9 though
refusing to protect Paula’s human rights have once again proven who they work
for. Things are not at all as they seem at Milk Up Bank Farm, so perhaps a
little more digging is needed.
Ah, could this be the real reason Paula and her Rainbow Ark
have been hounded and evicted from her property? A Wind Farm ? Durham are
currently trying to build a huge 50 metre wind turbine this planning
application, which will generate a potential profits of £7.4 million,
"..Proposed Development ERECTION OF 1 No. 50 MET MAST TO GATHER WIND SPEED DATA TO ASSIST THE OAKENSHAW ASSOCIATION TO ASSESS THE VIABILITY OF A SINGLE OR TWIN TURBINE COMMUNITY WIND POWER INSTILLATION FOR A PERIOD OF 12 MONTHS (RESUBMISSION)"
Would apparently need to use Paula’s road to develop and
Paula was refusing access. There may be other plans afoot but this situation
certainly needs looking into very carefully. If as Paula Claims the eviction
was unlawful then it seems someone has a vested interest in taking her
property. This planning application will cause a nature conservancy area on Paula's property to be destroyed. There is a worldwide land grab going on at the moment, ordinary
people are being evicted from their properties on tenuous and unlawful grounds
and police are continuing to aid and abet bailiffs acting illegally.
Paula Campbell is everyman as we struggle through these
troubled times, all she wanted was to live quietly taking care of the animals
she has such an affinity with. The world
of big finance crashed into her peaceful Durham sanctuary and took everything,
but this will be all of us as our lives, in turn are destabilised by outside influences,
as our rights are eroded and as “developers” cast an eye over anything we own
or aspire to own.
