Can’t Pay? We’ll Take It Away! is a factual/reality documentary series on Channel 5. It follows the work of High Court enforcement officers as they execute High Court Writs across England and Wales, on those who have failed to make repayments on a debt or refuse to vacate a property.

One of our favourite High Court Enforcement Officers is Paul Bohill. He stands no messing when it comes to debt-dashers.

The tough cookie (or Gentle Giant) has got a tattoo on his right arm which, when translated from Latin, reads “No is not an option”. He had this done about 15 years ago and lives by this phrase.

Paul Bohill has built up a vast amount of knowledge and experience within the enforcement sector from a career spanning over 50 years.

He first started his career in the West Midlands Police (like Ginger and Nuts!) where he tried his hand at a number of different departments before becoming a fast response driver and co-founding member of the police underwater search unit.

After further stints in law enforcement, Paul moved into the High Court industry in the early 90’s where he has served over 25 years. He is passionate about his job and the company he works for.

Paul mentioned there might be a book out at Christmas which is all about the company he works for (DCBL) as well as the TV programme, ‘Can’t Pay? We’ll Take It Away’.
