Hi, thank you for your message. I would recommend the following:
1) If you know the contact details of the person.Write a formal letter setting out your claim and what you want from the person i.e. for the website to be taken down. Give them 14 days to reply. At the end of the letter state that if you do not hear back in 14 days you will take legal action. This is called a letter before claim.
2) Write a letter to Google asking them to remove the site. Explain your situation and why.
2) If you would like to instruct a solicitor to write the letters for you I would recommend that you contact a solicitor using the law society find a solicitor function here : https://solicitors.lawsociety.org.uk/ You will be able to search by specialism and also town or postcode to find one near you.
3) You can also contact your local citizens advice bureau who may be able to help you draft a letter. Contact your local citizens advice bureau using this link: www.citizensadvice.org.uk
4) You may have a case of defamation against. A statement is defamatory if it is one that when read or heard by an ordinary right thinking member of the public; not avid for gossip causes or is likely to cause serious harm damage to the claimant’s reputation. I would recommend that you find a solicitor in your area to bring the claim forward if you decide to do so. You can find a solicitor through the law society using this function: https://solicitors.lawsociety.org.uk/
You will be able to search by specialism and also town or postcode to find one near you if you wish to pursue this course of action.
