Dear Dr George Julian

I apologise for the delay in responding to your FOI request, the data I have received is incorrect and I wanted to check with the analyst before sending to you, but unfortunately the analyst is off sick. I will make this a priority first thing Monday morning and hope to get the information to you early next week.

Again I do apologise for the delay but do not want to send you wrong data.

Kind regards

Unfortunately, the file sent by the authority on 29 March 2017 appears to be corrupt. I would advise sending a follow-up to them should you still require a copy.
