A bailiff from television’s Can’t Pay? We’ll Take it Away! who entered a house unlawfully left the occupants feeling “violated” and “like the guilty party”.
A judge has ruled Gary Brown, a star of the Channel Five show, should have made more thorough checks before entering the home in Bracknell in September.
The couple involved did not owe money. Their address had been given to a collection company by the real debtor.
Mr Brown said he was sorry and should have “done more” to check the address.
