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

Response to this request is long overdue. Although not legally required to do so, we would have expected York Minster Police to have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear York Minster Police,

I wanted to know if you could provide me with data regarding acid attacks in the York area in the last 10 - 15 years.

The information I am looking for is the following:
(1) the number of attacks that have occurred?
(2) the age of the attackers and the victims?
(3) the injuries the victims ended up with?
(4) age of individuals found to be carrying acid or other corrosive substances?

I look forward to hearing from your soon

Yours faithfully,

Z Shah

Thank you for your recent request for information regarding the above,
which has been passed to me for attention and reply.

 

This organisation does not respond to FOI requests, as the Freedom of
Information Act 2000 (“the Act”) does not apply to us.

 

Neither York Minster nor the Minster’s governing body (the Chapter of
York) is a “public authority” as defined by Schedule 1 of the Act.

 

“York Minster Police” is simply the name we use for York Minster’s
in-house security team – it is not a part of the national police service.

 

The local territorial police force (North Yorkshire Police) is responsible
for the investigation of all crime and for responding to all 101/999
Police calls in York.

 

I hope that this clarification is helpful to you.

 

Regards,

 

Andy Oates
