Did your friend free the car and return the clamp to the bailiff? Was this private land?
Please check that carefully because I don’t think it can be a public road. Bailiffs don’t usually have any jurisdiction. Come back to me when you’ve checked all of that.
Can you let me see the paperwork?
Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
Do you have an outstanding Court Judgment?
Have you asked?
Ok. Then it is legal to clamp.
They are High Court enforcement agents. If there is a CCJ over £600 it can be transferred to the High Court.
These sheriffs are legally allowed to clamp. They are COMMANDED by the High Court to collect.What is it you want to ask me?
It could be criminal damage. If you knew he was going to do it, then you could be charged too.

Does that help?
No, we do not have a client lawyer relationship as this is an online only service.
But they would have to prove you knew.
If your friend who took it off is prepared to take 100% of the blame, then you are ok.
But he would need to explain how he knew it was clamped and why he took it off.
But your friend can take 100% blame, yes.
