I was somewhat taken aback.

2 PCSOs opened my front door and strolled in. I thought they had to be invited in or something? They were there to try to serve a Police Notice on me, nothing more.

Have they contravened any laws by just walking in uninvited? Can I get any redress? I felt intimidated.

You can make a complaint against the police and it will be upheld and nobody will give a toss. Keep your doors locked.

It seems they have committed trespass. £500 compensation seems to be the going rate.
