This man is a 'Common Law' eviction bailiff.
He oversaw the failed attempt to evict Yorkley Court without going to 
court, without giving the occupants a chance to contest the eviction 
and without having to prove ownership of the land.

So what is a Common Law eviction??

Eviction of trespassers under Common Law

By David Carter on 25th January 2012

A person or group of people on land without the landowner's 
permission are deemed to be trespassers.
Whilst Government guidance to local authorities is that they seek a 
court order to remove trespassers from land owned or managed by the 
local authority, private landowners have more choice. They can still 
go down the court route of obtaining an order for possession, then 
transferring it to the High Court to obtain a writ of possession that 
is enforced by High Court Enforcement Officers, or they can use the 
ancient remedy of Common Law.
In fact, the landowner can obtain a court order and still choose to 
remove the trespassers under Common Law. Halsburys Laws of England 
(Paragraph 1400, Volume 45, 4th Edition) state that:
"If a trespasser peaceably enters or is on land, the person who is in 
or entitled to possession may request him to leave, and if he refuses 
to leave, remove him from the land using no more force than is 
reasonably necessary. This right is not ousted if the person entitled 
to possession has succeeded in an action at law for possession but 
chooses not to sue out his Writ."
