Provision of information held by Northumbria Police made under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 (the 'Act')

As you may be aware the purpose of the Act is to allow a general right of access to information held at the time of a request, by a Public Authority (including the Police), subject to certain limitations and exemptions.

You asked:

A yearly breakdown of the total number of reported stolen cars. Could you please provide a breakdown for the past three years, starting with 2016/2017, 2017/2018, 2018/2019
