If a direction to leave the land has been given and a Constable reasonably suspects that any person to whom the direction applies has, without reasonable excuse either:

  • failed to remove any vehicle on the land which appears to the Constable to belong to him or to be in his possession or under his control: or
  • entered the land as a trespasser with a vehicle within the period of three months beginning with the day on which the direction was given the Constable may seize and remove the vehicle.
