On having children present during a raid:
"They come through me door, about 10 of them, and I had me kids with me and that. And like, I was bollock naked on the bed with me bird, the door opened like that, I was scared and the kid was screaming. It was horrible."
"I mean, they wouldn't even let me go to my wean, who was in the toilet when the door went in. They've come straight in and they've cuffed me and they've cuffed the missus and they left me sitting and I says, ' Look, mate ... my wean's in the toilet, barricaded the door'. I says, 'I want to go'. [The police officer said] 'No, you sit there, I'll go and see her'. I says, 'No mate, let me, you do what you want but I'm going to go and get my wean ... you go in there, she's kind of wanting help'. It's really a horrible, horrible thing because the wean's going, 'I don't want you to go to jail'. That's what really gave me a kick in the teeth."
"They should have more women there to try to get the kids to calm down because it's frightening what was going on."
On having a parent or elderly relative present during a raid:
"I was staying with my dad and I didn't really like that. He's dead now but he was quite old. He was 70-odd and they handcuffed him and treated him like a criminal and he's not done nothing. That was pretty difficult for my dad."
On being given a body search during a raid:
"I hated it. It was nothing to do with me, I was just in the wrong place at the wrong time, and I got handcuffed and dragged up the stairs, strip-searched, bend over, part your cheeks. I just wanted it over as quickly as possible."
