I was made aware by the letter from trading standards, I wanted to know whether they can legally pursue it on behalf of the police, they are asking me to fill in a form stating who was the driver and what instructions he had from the company etc. I presume subject to my reply they would then pass the information to the police , I believe we were in our rights to work there so am not to bothered but it was the principle of whether trading standards have the right to enquire and or inforce and supply information to the police. They say they are investigating the circumstances and I have asked them for the report so I can answer it.
I believe because we had work within the weight restriction we are legally allowed to access that road as there was no other way to access it. my question that needs answering is can they enforce me answering them and are they in association with the police.
