Data for 2019 does not include any seizures made at Gatwick airport during Q4, due to a change in reporting systems.

2020 figures were impacted by the 2020 Covid-19 pandemic (see 'Other Information' below).

Where figures have been surpressed in the source data, they have been removed. This means that in cases where all four quarters were surpressed, there is no data point available for that year.
