Please can you provide information on how many incidents were reported of people driving off from petrol station's without paying. It would be great to know the figures from March 2016-17 or the closest yearly data possible (e.g. Feb 2016-17 etc).
I would like the information to be based around the Taunton area which falls within West Somerset if possible.
Would it be possible to break down which petrol stations are affected the most?
