This is a request under the Freedom of Information act. Please could you provide me with the following:
The number of train and plane spotters who have been stopped and searched under the Terrorism Act 2000.
By “train and plane spotters”, I refer to anyone who cited this hobby as the reason for the suspicious or unusual behaviour that led to them being searched.
Please include details such as the officer’s report of the incident and the ages/occupations/excuses of the people searched, if it is possible to do so without exceeding the number of working hours allowed to process an FOI.
2010 onwards would be ideal – but if this would require too much legwork and exceed the working hours allowed for an FOI, Jan 2014 onwards would be just fine.
We do not hold any information in relation to the number of train and plane spotters who have been stopped and searched under the Terrorism Act 2000.
