Dear North Wales Police,

Your statement goes on to state "The only safe option was to run the dog over at sufficient speed to ensure that it was destroyed and would not suffer". Please provide the risk assessments for running the dog over. In particular, I would like to see the risk assessment pertaining to what a 'sufficient speed' was.

Your statement states "Other methods of destruction were considered, but were ruled out on the grounds of public safety". Please provide the risk assessments undertaken when determining the level of risk to public safety pertaining to each option you considered.

Please also provide the call logs and transcripts from the control room pertaining to the incident at 3am Monday 22 Feb 2016 of a dog loose on the A55.
