26th February 2016 Exercise Chameleon Llantrisant

Gary Jones made this Freedom of Information request to South Wales Police

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

Waiting for an internal review by South Wales Police of their handling of this request.

Dear South Wales Police,

I am requesting information under the freedom in information act, can you please provide me with information from the 25th - 26th February 2016 relating to Exercise Chameleon.

A number of residents phoned 101 emergency number to ask about the events from that night when Exercise Chameleon was running.

Can you please tell me how many calls you received regarding complaints about loud helicopters from Exercise Chameleon?

Could you provide me with any details as to whether people called 101 or 999 to report any loud explosions from Llantrisant or surrounding areas?

Did the South Wales police receive any calls reporting to seeing strange or unusual lights in the skies?

Please treat my request with the utmost respect, I think I have been very reasonable in asking three questions and also specific about what I am looking for.

Yours faithfully,

Gary Jones

Dear South Wales Police,

Please pass this on to the person who conducts Freedom of Information reviews.

I am writing to request an internal review of South Wales Police's handling of my FOI request '26th February 2016 Exercise Chameleon Llantrisant'.


The South Wales police have not answered my FOI in the required time by law and no explanation has been given as to why a delay has taken place, I am sick and tired and seeing FOI's going unanswered especially from an institution funded by tax payers money and whose job is to serve the public.

A full history of my FOI request and all correspondence is available on the Internet at this address: https://www.whatdotheyknow.com/request/2...

Yours faithfully,

Gary Jones
