I write in connection with your request for information dated 5th September 2019 and received by this office on that date. Please accept our apologies for the late response but unfortunately the department that would provide the information is having some staffing issues and we have been unable to obtain an update on the information requested.

Below are the questions raised in your request, and our response.

I would like to be supplied with details of reports of ghosts received by your force in the 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 calendar years and any reports received in the present year to date.
