Dear Mr Henderson

Further to our email below, there was a major fire in the Kingsway area of London on 1 April. This took place adjacent to the CAA's London office, where our airspace and environmental research teams are based, and we had no access to the building between 1 April and 14 April. While our contingency plans were implemented to ensure that our work continued as normally as possible, we had to prioritise essential services during that period.

Unfortunately this is having an impact on our ability to provide you with a response to your request, although we will endeavour to respond fully as soon as possible.

Yours sincerely
