Dear Northumbria Police Authority,
Could you please share your authority's documentation (reports, logs, exchanges of communications) for the event that occurred on Heaton Road late November 2011 and tragically resulted in a cyclist's death in early December 2011.
To me it seems logical that an incident report, a report explaining the causalities which determined further necessary actions, and which led to the inquest held recently, should be readily available.
The Newcastle Cycling Campaign would like to understand what happened, and hopes that additional information from official sources such as yours will help make a fuller picture.
As usual with FoI requests it's hard to pinpoint exactly what to ask for, as I am not a police officer and have not carried out police reporting in the past. I trust you can 'translate' my request into police language. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to get in touch.
Chair, Newcastle Cycling Campaign
