The Answer

David,

Perish the thought of police being at the airport when you come back to the UK, as it isn’t going to happen; not just for a few debts left behind anyway.

So no worries about coming back and all that.

You could very well still owe the debts. Have any of the banks or creditors been in contact with you?

How much debt are we discussing?

Do you have the means to repay the debts or set-up a repayment plan?

Are you going to stay in the UK?

Let me know and we can look at this in more detail, but you are free to return to the UK.

Regards,

Jon
