Mr Eyre, 46, whose left arm is now strapped from his knuckles to his elbow, claimed: "I told him that he didn't have my permission to enter.
"The bailiff, who was a big guy, said 'we're coming in' and tried to force his way past me.
"There were three police officers there but they just turned away.
"The bailiff grabbed my hand and twisted it one way, twisting my fingers the other."
"I screamed and hit the floor and he dragged me out of the house and stepped over me to get in.
"There was nothing I could do because the police said they'd arrest me if I tried to throw the bailiff out. I just felt horrible."
He added: "Now I've got a broken arm and I'm homeless. And I'm not the only one - the police officers told me they had eight other repossessions to do that day. It's a national crisis."
Mr Eyre got around £3,000 into arrears on his mortgage when he slipped a disc in his back and was forced to quit his job as a house renovator.
He said his lender, Platform Home Loans which is part of the Britannia Building Society, refused to accept anything less than the full £780 monthly payments on his £147,000 remortgage.

In fact, I curse all inconsiderate bailiffs to learn compassion by suffering the unwarranted indignities and injustices they enact onto debtors when failure to repay debt is caused by circumstances created by external influences which the debtor is not able to control
