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.
Actual home attendance figures for Newcastle United FC for the 2018/19 Premier League football season.
We have now had the opportunity to fully consider your request and I provide a response for your attention.
As a response to your query is accessible by other means I have not provided you with a copy of the information and will rely on Section 21 of the Freedom of Information Act 2000. You should therefore consider this a refusal for your request.
I have provided an explanation to this exemption below.
Section 21 (1) - Information accessible by other means
Information which is reasonably accessible to the applicant is exempt information.
This question has been asked previously, responded to, and published on the Northumbria Police Disclosure Log. A simple search of the Log for ‘football’ ‘attendance’ or ‘NUFC’ will bring back returns relevant to your query.
