Please note, we would like to make users aware of a slight error with one indicator within the reports. This error was isolated to the Vehicle crime data on page 29, Crime and safety: Recorded crime (1). 

The Vehicle crime data generated for your stock groups was correct, however the per 1,000 of the population and England average figures were incorrect. Once spotted this error was fixed immediately and quality control checks were done across the reports.

This error affects all reports generated between 2016-06-20 and 2016-08-19. To regenerate the reports and amend the issue simply generate a new report for that stock group.
