Police: Slater's actions left a family deeply distraught

The injuries sustained by Mr Allen were horrific. Whatever had happened between the pair leading up to this incident, nothing justified Slater behaving in the way that he did that day. A vehicle of such a size is a powerful weapon - his actions behind the wheel of the lorry have left a family deeply distraught and struggling to come to terms with what has happened.
