Collision records

When officers attend a road traffic collision they write-up the details and put them together with other relevant material into an official record. 

Insurers and solicitors can request to see a record that relates to their case by writing to:

Accident Records
Operations Complex
Europa Link
Sheffield
S9 1XX

You should include as much information about the collision as possible, particularly the date, location, vehicle registration and the names of those involved.

There is a fee for providing this information and you can find a list of costs below.
