Date Responded 26 March 2020

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:

Information relating to the image of "Klara and edda belly dancing" and it's legality.

CPS decision in 2001 and again in 2007.

You then provided clarification of your request as follows:

"What specifically im after is "Is the image Klara and Edda by Nancy Golding  Legal under UK law". According the the media the CPS at the time decided  it did not breech indecency laws. Was that accurate reporting ?”

In Response:

Following receipt of your request, searches were conducted with the Crime Department of Northumbria Police.  I can confirm that the information you have requested is not held by Northumbria Police.  Information from 2001 or 2007 has not been retained.

You may wish to redirect your query to the CPS to see if they can assist.
