Sandbox Search API returning no results

Hi, I am currently using the sandbox api test my app, I have found that the /search/companies api isn’t responding with any results. I have other api requests returning fine such as the direct company search https://test-data-sandbox.company-information.service.gov.uk/test-data/company.

Here is the request I am making:
curl APIKEY: “https://api-sandbox.company-information.service.gov.uk/search/companies?q=company&items_per_page=3&start_index=0

Here is the result:

{“items_per_page”:3,“page_number”:1,“start_index”:0,“total_results”:0,“kind”:“search#companies”,“items”:[]}

It’s key to note here that no matter what my search parameters are I am getting the same result with no items, even when I search for test companies I know have been created using the company number or full name.

Any help would be appreciated.
