(2) - does not include incidents that occurred during national industrial action in November 2002, January 2003 and February 2003

(3) - includes caravans and houseboats used solely as a permanent dwelling

(4) - there has been a change in the recording of spread of fire - see paragraph 6.3.4 v for details
