2. Please disclose where, by road name and by what-3-words if possible, the animals were found.

3. Please disclose the number of vehicle accidents reported that were caused by animals in the road. Please break down the reports by location (W3W if possible) and whether they resulted in no injuries, injury, or fatality to humans.
