In Response:

 We have now had the opportunity to fully consider your request and I provide a response for your attention.

 Following receipt of your request, searches were conducted with the Professional Standards Department of Northumbria Police. I can confirm that the information you have requested is not held by Northumbria Police. Searches made on relevant systems have brought back nil results.  We can therefore confirm that the response to all parts of this request is zero.
