Dear Barbara Wilkins,

Many thanks for the spreadsheet and information provided within. Unfortunately, the information does not provide addresses for each incident which is essential for our needs.

Can you please reconsider providing this information?

Yours sincerely,

Tom Snowdon

Dear Mr Snowdon,

 

We are unable to provide any further detail about individual incidents as
this is classed as personal data and therefore attracts a Section 40(2)
exemption under the Freedom of Information Act 2000. Disclosure of the
information may cause damage and distress to the individuals involved so
would therefore be unfair to disclose it and contravene the principles of
the Data Protection Act 2018.
