Usage of the diesel engine on your class 801 trains.

Dear London North Eastern Railway Limited,
I understand that your class 801 trains have a very small diesel engine which is designed for emergency use only to ensure that if an 801 train was to breakdown or if the overhead power lines was to fail than the 801 would be able to still make it to the nearest station so passengers could alight rather than having to wait for an 800 or any other diesel train to come and rescue it.
So i am requesting some information on how often this has been used since the 801 trains were introduced.
I would like to request a full list of all occasions since the 801 trains were introduced that an 801 has utilised its diesel engine. Please include the date and the unit number(s) involved and a very brief description of what happened (for example an overhead power line failure etc) and the locations and stations that the emergency diesel engine on the 801 was used between.
