Internal report into the Royal Clarence fire (unpublished)

Marc Astley made this Freedom of Information request to Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service

This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service,

Following a recent request in which I asked for information about official reports into the Royal Clarence fire in Exeter in October 2016, I have been contacted by a source who has told me that an internal report has been produced but which has not been published.

My question is simple. Is this true or not?

If it is true, where is the report and when will it be published?

I would also like to ask if an internal, unpublished report into the fire has been shredded or destroyed in any other way.

I have a supplementary question which will depend upon your response.

Please do not point me in the direction of the published reports or those available to buy.

I am only interested in the alleged UNPUBLISHED INTERNAL REPORT.

Yours faithfully,

Marc Astley
