Coronavirus (COVID-19)

How we are working to keep our FOI Requests running during COVID-19

Operation Cygnus (984A/20)

Request

I would like to see previous versions of the summary report relating to Operation Cygnus. The final summary document was published here –

https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/may/07/revealed-the-secret-report-that-gave-ministers-warning-of-care-home-coronavirus-crisis

I would also like to see supplementary documents that relate to this summary and/or were circulated in the run up to the report being finalised in 2017. Local Resilience Forums (LRFs) were involved in the exercise. From their website, they are based at your HQ and provide your contact details.

Response

I am writing to inform you that we have searched our records and the information you requested is not held by West Midlands Police. WMP’s Local Resilience Forum did not have access to any previous versions of the Operation Cygnus report and did not receive supplementary documents in the run up to the release of the final version.

Presently, the West Midlands Conurbation LRF have access to the same version of the report available to the general public.
