Please find attached a breakdown of the information we have identified as relevant to your request. Where a field is left blank this will indicate a zero.

Please use the tabs along the bottom for answers to each of your questions.

The detail collected to respond specifically to your request is subject to the inaccuracies inherent in any large scale recording system. As a consequence, care should be taken to ensure data collection processes and their inevitable limitations are taken into account when interpreting those data.

Any occurrences which are currently under investigation will not have yet recorded an outcome. This will explain why the outcome numbers will be lower than the total number of occurrences reported.
