hi, thank you for your help

I am really sorry but there is a chance that could still show on your PNC and then should be disclosed on enhanced checking. It would only be disclosed if deemed relevant but the police are fairly risk adverse I'm afraid.

There is a chance it would not be there just as a result of the passage of time and human error in failing to keep records but you cannot rely on that.

Can I clarify anything for you?
