Dear Jane L Jones,

Thanks for the information sent so far. Could please send any attachments which were attached to the emails I asked for, and also a copy of the ICM findings? I know you said that no internal analysis of these was done, but given the council paid someone to do a job for it, I think it's reasonable to assume that they were carrying the analysis out for you as well,

Yours sincerely,

Fiona Barnett

Dear Jane L Jones,
