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

We're waiting for Nicholas to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Merseyside Police,

I am getting in touch as I wanted to request data showing the number of road accidents that involved cyclists in Merseyside. If possible, I'd like to see the number of road accidents involving cyclists for the past five years, but I understand this might not be possible so data for 2018 will be also very much appreciated.

Yours faithfully,

Nicholas
