The Court Proceedings Database holds information on defendants proceeded against, found guilty and sentenced for criminal offences in England and Wales. These data include information on the offence and statute for the offence. The Court Proceedings Database does not hold specific information on offences beyond descriptions provided by the statutes under which prosecutions are brought nor the circumstances of each case.
There is no specific statute of ‘hijacking commercial lorries and tankers’. Defendants may be proceeded against for offences of theft or conspiracy to steal, etc. Centrally available motoring offences data do not separately identify commercial lorries and tankers from other types of motor vehicle. Data for 2009 are planned for publication in autumn, 2010.
