It had been completely cleared out – all his belongings were gone and the floor swept clean.

He called the police, thinking he had been the victim of a very thorough burglar.

But it was a mistake by bailiffs. They had been ordered by the rental agency to clear out an apartment which they were repossessing.

Unfortunately, the key given to the bailiffs also fitted the other flat.

It’s not sure if the man can get his furniture back – it had already been sent for destruction.
