Tenant has been ordered to leave PCOL(possession Clain on line)

This answer was rated:

Tenant has been ordered to leave PCOL(possession Clain on line) section 8 3 months rent arrears.
Mandatory possession was granted.
3 weeks after warrant of possession was issued I haven't heard anything from the Bailiffs. Tenant continues to live at my property without paying rent and now owed me 4 months rent. I need to get him out asap in order to relet my property
Can I employ private bailiffs to evict the tenant.
