A request for information about commercial vehicle fires -18093


Ref: FOI/18093


I am writing to confirm that the West Midlands Fire Service has now completed its search for the information you requested on 22nd June 2018

Please find below a summary of our findings.


Following the information you very kindly provided below I was wondering if you be able to assert which incidents took place specifically on the SRN. I have also contacted Greater Manchester Fire service who have been able to provide me with this information and wondered If West Mids would be able to do the same. It would be of great use to the team.


Please see attached.
