Statement on North Wales Police referral of A55 dog death incident

IPCC Commissioner Jan Williams’ statement on North Wales Police referral of A55 dog death incident 

“We recognise the public concern arising from the incident where a dog was destroyed on the A55 earlier this week.

After careful consideration of a referral from North Wales Police, we have determined that the force should continue with its own investigation. I have been reassured by the deputy chief constable at North Wales Police that the matter is being treated very seriously.

The investigation is to be conducted with the input of an expert review group including representatives from the RSPCA, the veterinary profession, and a roads policing specialist from a separate police force. I have requested regular updates from the deputy chief constable on the progress of the investigation.”
