My request relates to police investigating complaints regarding accommodation rental website Airbnb.

-Please provide an outline of each complaint with full details of the damage caused or issue reported by the home owner. For example: `Called to a property which had been vandalised by an Airbnb guest who caused £xxx amount of damage. Homeowner returned to find curtains torn, staircase smashed and personal items defaced.
-Could you then outline what action, if any, was taken and what the outcome of your investigation was?
