Dear Robert

Further to our Freedom of Information request, I can confirm that in the past 12 months there has a total of 879 reported accidents to our vehicle insurance company. I have attached a data sheet which shows the number of claims by reason.

It is the view of the trust that the cost and time of reviewing each individual incident report to provide the detailed information requested below would exceed the 18 hour appropriate limit, as prescribed by Freedom of Information and Data Protection Act Fees Regulation 2004.

I hope what I have provided you is of assistance.

Kind regards
