The Scottish Refugee Council (SRC) stress that: “at present the bar on lock change eviction only applies to the five people whose cases were in court yesterday. It therefore remains extremely important that any individuals served with a notice obtain urgent legal advice”.
The SRC advise anyone who receives a lock-change notice from Serco to get in touch as soon as possible: 0141 223 7979
