Incident Query


Tuesday, 30 June, 2020


Monday, 6 July, 2020

Request detail: 

Hello. On the 29th June, 1 fire engine, 2 ambulances, 2 incident response vehicles, the air ambulance and 2 police cars responded to an incident adjacent to Humber lane, Tf28lw.  There was a presence for over two hours.

The incident was briefly shown on your incident page, but was removed on the day, which occurred within 10 minutes on the same day. You clearly did attend an incident and given that there are ‘false alarms’ showing - it doesn’t explain how this incident is unreported.

What was the incident? And why has it been removed?
