    Hired out by bailiffs Veritas, the SGI executed an early morning raid on the squatters by descending down on zip-lines from the roof.

    SGI group Leader Peter Faulding, 59, known as the ‘human molefor his ability to crawl through any space and get anywhere, said the operation had gone ‘safely’.

    Peter, a former Parachute Regiment veteran from Sussex, said that his group’s operations were always aimed at safely and respectfully removing people.

    ‘These people in this building were squatters, so it was a different approach, but despite it being a ‘raidwe try to be kind and respectful.

    ‘We were brought in by the bailiffs because we’re the group that deals with situations other people cant deal with.

    ‘This incident was a private removal, so not a police matter, but I’ve dealt with every major protest since the Newbury bypass protests in 1995.

    ‘We’re the only specialist protester removal team in the UK.

    Saying the group’s trick to handling people in volatile or unpredictable circumstances, Peter says the best approach is to offer them a coffee and be compassionate.

    ‘You just have to be caring and treat everyone the same, give them a smile and help them safely get out. We’ve never had any problems as a result.

    ‘While the raid may have resembled the 1980 Iranian Embassy Raid, Peter says the goal isn’t to go in ‘hard’, but safely.

    Lui ha spiegato: ‘It probably looked a bit like the siege. But like anything military, it’s all about safety.

    ‘This wasn’t about going in hardit was about making sure people didn’t get injured, that’s what we are about.

    ‘The main reason for that strategy is to prevent them getting onto the roof or balconies of the property.

    ‘Once they are on there bailiffs operations always fail because it becomes too unsafe to try and remove them. They could fall or get hurt.
