Legal proceedings pending following bailiff raid

04 September 2017

A raid on the Telereal Trillium office in Blyth, Northumberland, carried out by bailiffs has also resulted in the closure of the JobCentre Plus office, according to the ChronicleLive website.

A possession notice for Telereal Trillium, which provides estates and FM services, was left taped to the inside of the main entrance doors of the building by the bailiff.

The company provides services to the Department of Work and Pensions' (DWP) portfolio around the UK, said the news story, leading to concern over the reasons why the job centre had been involved.

ChronicleLive reported a spokesman for the business saying: "The current matter at Blyth is the result of a third party landlord action and it is in the hand of our solicitors.

"We are unable to comment further due to ongoing legal proceedings."

The report did not reveal the reason for the bailiff action.

Further concern over the impact the job centre closure will have on "vulnerable" people were also expressed.

It was stated that staff had been redeployed and appointments cancelled, with claimants having to travel to other job centre locations, causing difficulties for a number of people.
