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

The request was successful.

Dear Humberside Police,

I would like to request information of how many crimes have been reported in Humberside in the last three years
pertaining to stolen caravans listed on ebay.

To summarise I would like to request:

1) A search of records for the phrase 'stolen caravan' for the three year period of 2010-2012 in the Humberside area and confirmation of the number of cases this search returns.

2) a search of this data for the phrase 'eBay' and a confirmation of how many cases this then returns.

3) confirmation of how many of these 'stolen caravan' cases that involved eBay were then recovered.

Yours faithfully,

Sara Drinkwater
