The truth emerges regarding Paula Jayne Campbell who was
running milk up bank farm as an animal sanctuary called “Rainbow Ark” in
February I was asked to write the story and help to publicise what seemed to be
a possible land grab to erect a wind turbine. I was assured that Paula Jayne
did not owe any mortgage arrears and that the mortgage company had acted
unfairly towards Paula, who was simply trying to help the animals in her care.
I wrote the post in good faith believing what I had been
told, this week however, evidence has been brought to my attention that shows that
what I was told was not accurate, that in fact, Paula Jayne seems to be a compulsive
liar, a fantasist and a psychopath who never really cared for the animals she
professed to love and help, but was using them as a shield and for sympathy to
enable donations for her impossible dream, a dream that never had any
substance, was never backed up by dedication and hard work only by a tissue of convenient
lies, that varied as circumstances demanded.
What proof can that be? Ironically a document generated by
Paula Jayne herself as she attempts to flim flam the High Court of Justice, Mr
Andrew Sutcliffe QC, sitting as Judge of the high court hands down his decision regarding the matter
at hand but most interestingly records the history of the eviction of Paula
Jayne from “Rainbow Ark” or Milk Up Bank Farm.
Paula Jayne executed a mortgage deed of £500,000 over the
property in August of 2006 almost immediately Paula Jayne failed to pay her
mortgage and the first warrant for possession was sought by the mortgage lender
in March of 2007, Paula Jayne paid her mortgage arrears and the warrant for
possession was cancelled, there followed no less than 16 warrants for
possession, over the next seven years, sought and cancelled by the mortgage
lenders as Paula Jayne managed to lie, prevaricate and beg funds from her local
Carmelite convent , £22,809.33 (43) and a pensioner who donated his savings to
save the Ark amongst others.
However it seems
doubtful that Paula Jayne should have been given a mortgage at all as she has
no apparent income and had clearly failed in her mortgage commitments
continually for at least eight years.
The judge finds that Paula Jayne “was not a convincing
witness…” and “was not a witness on whose evidence I could rely. In parts her
evidence was evasive and contradictory” (82) Indeed reading through Paula’s
claims, that she was a widow, her husband an ex-serviceman, that she was going
through a divorce. That she was earning £48,000 or £40,000 or perhaps £32,000 a
year and indeed that she had paid her mortgage by standing order, payments
denied having been made by the bank. Claims that she seems to have forgotten
giving to the courts as her next account is so contradictory.
Evidence is given to the high court by solicitor Mr
Chadwick. Described by the Judge that “
He was a careful and impressive witness whose written and oral evidence I
accept without reservation.” Who describes the conditions Paula Jayne Campbell
and her family, allegedly including a vulnerable young child have allowed
themselves to live in “that there were
numerous animals on the Property and there was animal excrement throughout the
main dwelling house on the Property including on the work surfaces, such that
in his opinion the house was uninhabitable. He said the smell was very strong
and that there were numerous items scattered about the house in no semblance of
order, the majority of which were thoroughly soiled.” (100)
The revolving door of Paula Jayne not paying her mortgage,
being taken to court for possession of the farm, appealing against the
judgement, delaying in any way possible, getting bailed out by various well-meaning
people, not paying her mortgage again, might almost be amusing in a farcical
way, were it not for the fact that several hundred completely innocent and
vulnerable animals were being used by Paula as she carted her begging bowl
around convents and old people’s homes.
If Paula could not afford to pay her
mortgage, how was she able to pay food bills, pay for bedding, pay vets bills ?
Paula Jayne kept no documents of the animals, their names were not even
recorded, animals were not checked by a vet, their kennels or stables were as
filthy as Paula’s own home with clean bedding being scattered occasionally over
dirty bedding that was left on the floors. Animals were not even fed properly
or with regularity, malnutrition and ill health, including fleas and worms and
filth were these poor creatures lot in life once they fell into Paula Jayne’s
The RSPCA were involved as were many other animal shelters
in rescuing the animals at the final eviction, hundreds of animals were taken
to safety, many of them had to be put to sleep because of their condition, many
were treated for long standing health conditions that Paula Jayne had cruelly
neglected, helpers were shocked and upset by the condition of the animals and
the conditions they were kept in. The RSPCA did not prosecute Paula Jayne,
having limited funds they may well have considered that once the animals were
safely away from the cruel and neglectful conditions Paula Jayne had kept them
in that RSPCA funds would be better used in helping other animals than pursuing
justice through the courts, an expensive and time consuming process.
Paula Jayne was finally evicted in January of this year, the
animals rescued and that should have been an end to the matter, yet Paula Jayne
contacted people who are active in
alternative media and lied about the circumstances regarding her eviction, she
claimed her arrears were paid and that she had been illegally evicted, pictures
were shown of happy Paula and apparently healthy animals and people were taken
in, including myself, indeed as Paula
has scammed Carmelite nuns, county court judges and others we are just in a
long line of people conned by the lies of Paula Jayne as she lies and again
attempts to con money from people to enable her imaginary lifestyle.
However this decision by the Judge clearly and succinctly
lays the truth before us, Paula is a liar, she may well have had a fantasy
about saving animals, or about owning a farm however she is inadequate for the
task, too dirty and lazy to keep her own home or the homes of the animals she “sheltered” in a clean and hygienic manner, lurching from
crisis to crisis, lying and excusing herself at every turn, with no real compassion
for the animals or indeed for her own family both of whom she was happy to see
living in filthy stinking squalor.
Paula still claims to be fighting to get her “home” back, is
still begging for money, still lying to alternative media. She has a debt
estimated by the judge to be in excess of £730,000, no job, no skills and seems
to believe that people should support her and send donations, many, many people
have already been hurt and many have had money conned from them. Countless
animals have suffered at least neglect and in several incidences what seems to
be actual cruelty at the hands of Paula Jayne.
“Gunner” was just one of the
little fella’s that didn’t make it.
Please do not send money or waste your energy on Paula, any
layman can see how many of the traits of the psychopathic Paula’s story
contains, she reinvented herself for every court case, had no empathy for her
family or for the animals she professed to care for, in fact she uses both at
every stage to hide behind and raise money for.
Paula Jayne has no reservation in taking large amounts of money, not
only from Carmelite nuns, but also from pensioners whose own funds must be very limited. How much other money Paula Jayne has received in cash from anonymous donors
we will never know. To donate now would be to just throw good money after bad.
After the eviction on 29 January a fund was immediately set
up by Rachel Sharp for the animals, for medical treatment, donations to the
sanctuaries they were rehomed at and various transport costs etc. Paula put
considerable pressure, using her followers to abuse via the internet on Rachel
to release funds to pay Paula’s mortgage arrears, as the money had been donated
for the animals not for Paula, and considerable money was needed for this Rachel
refused and used the money for the animals as documented by Rachel in her clear
and concise statement of account.
The harassment that Rachel endured was extreme, she was even
accused of stealing money by Paula’s supporters, though it is apparent that
Rachel’s swift intervention and use of the fund saved many animals who may have
otherwise have had to have been put to sleep.
The manner in which Rachel Sharp was treated by Paula Jayne Campbell is typical of Paula's modus operandi of using people, attempting to fleece money from people then lying about them and throwing them under the bus.
Paula Jayne Campbell now completely denies knowing about the fund or indeed knowing Rachel, however from this article in the Northern Echo it is clear that Paula Jayne Campbell knew all about the fund and Rachel is described as a "Friend" of Paula's.
"...The fundraising Save the Animals of Rainbow Ark campaign set up by MsCampbell's friend Rachel Sharp has so far collected £40,708.
Ms Campbell said " People have donatd to help the animals at the sanctuary and one hundred per cent of the money rised will go towards helping the animals"...."
Bobby didn't make it through either.....
K9, the security company were also the recipients of personal abuse from Paula Jayne Campbell's supporters, personal insults and again lies and intimidation were used as, again people tried to sort out the filthy mess Paula Jayne Campbell had left behind at Milk Up Bank farm.
The truth has emerged, Paula Jayne Campbell has exposed
herself through her own vexatious, without merit submissions to the courts, the
judges gave Paula Jayne Campbell enough rope and the results are clear.
Happily some of the animals rescued from “Rainbow Ark Animal
Sanctury” have made it through and are now happy in loving homes, hopefully to
recover from their traumas.
