Croydon devil dog execution: Exclusive photo

Woof, woof, bang, thud

Combat fraud and increase customer satisfaction

The shocking case earlier this week of the Croydon devil dog - shot dead by armed officers after unsportingly failing to succumb to a robust tasering - provoked a flurry of reader emails demanding El Reg provide the now traditional CCTV evidence of the incident.

Well, it took us a while, but we did manage to track down this explicit still showing the exact moment at which the satanic Staffordshire bull terrier hit the dirt:

Our artist's impression of how the Croydon devil dog execution may have looked

As you can see, the malevolent mutt managed to administer canine jaw-based justice to two coppers before popping off to the great dangerous dog pound in the sky. The mutt's 13-year-old owner, meanwhile, has decided to accept a cuffing in lieu of hot lead, and has ditched his traditional Saarf London arsenal of automatic pistol, cutlass and antique sword.

In the excitement, however, the Met's finest have once again failed to notice Optimus Prime, who's just come from Lunar House where immigration officials revoked his indefinite leave to remain in the UK following the complete destruction of Heathrow's flagship Terminal Five.

Suffice it to say, Lunar House won't be processing any visa applications for a while, and Mr Prime is now making his way to the Whitgift shopping centre to make similarly short work of that architecturally-lauded centre of consumerism. ®
