In Response:


Following receipt of your request, searches were conducted with the Vehicle Recovery Department of Northumbria Police. I can confirm that the information you have requested is held in part by Northumbria Police.

I am able to disclose the located information to you as follows.

To note, as the vehicles have been seized under Powers set down under S165 a-c RTA we are taking it that your reference to ‘confiscated’ actually refers to seizures and therefore our response below is for those seizures.
