Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with your question today. I am reviewing it, please give me a moment.

Have the police put in a formal request?

They told me to ask a solicitor because they have no time

Ok. You can ask the council, they may refuse under Data Protection Act 2018.

In which case you would need a court order. You would need to complete form n208

The court would set the matter down for a hearing and decide whether to order the council provide it.

So if the council say you need a court order that is what you need to do.

Can I clarify anything for you about this today, please?
