The following text is what a Mr Adrian Radford has placed on his website since I withdrew from the London School of Surveillance....I spoke to the police as he tried to blackmail me, he harrassed me and tried without success to have my centre closed. I have all the evidence to prove this wasn't the case but I can not seem to have this information removed without a court order according to the webhost

 

Website - http://www.londonschoolofsurveillance.com/
