Ok. You need to write to the bank and make a formal complaint, ask that it is removed within the next fourteen days or say you will go to court.

If they do not then you can issue proceedings using form part 8:

The court will list the matter for hearing and decide whether to make the bank remove it. If the court does and they refuse this is contempt of court.

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
