star this property answer text <p>The Home Office collects data on the number of stalking offences recorded by the police forces in England and Wales. Information on these offences can be found in the Home Office Open Data Tables for police recorded crime, available here: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/police-recorded-crime-open-data-tables" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/police-recorded-crime-open-data-tables</a>.</p><p> </p><p>We expect the police to investigate all crimes that are reported to them. All forces will suspend crime investigations if, after initial investigation, they conclude that there are no further lines of enquiry to pursue because there is no evidence trail or witnesses. These decisions are an operational matter for forces, but investigations can be reopened at any time should further evidence come to light. Information on the outcomes of offences recorded by the police is routinely published by the Home Office and can be found here: <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/crime-outcomes-in-england-and-wales-statistics" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/collections/crime-outcomes-in-england-and-wales-statistics</a></p>

star this property answer text <p>There are currently no routine discharges of raw sewage by water companies in England. Discharges from sewage treatment works must comply with permits issued under the Environmental Permitting Regulations (2010) by the Environment Agency. These permits are designed to protect the environment with the provision of sewage treatment to ensure compliance with relevant environmental directives such as the Bathing Water Directive and the Water Framework Directive. It is an offence for operators not to comply with their permit conditions.</p><p> </p><p>Discharges of raw sewage can occasionally occur during pollution incidents. Such incidents may happen if equipment breaks down or if there is damage to or blockages in the sewers allowing raw sewage to enter the environment. In such cases the Environment Agency is notified and the water company is required to mitigate the impact of the pollution. In the most serious cases the Environment Agency can take enforcement action, including prosecution or civil sanctions.</p>
