Thank you dear Alex,

Who do I ask for a copy? do I ask the police station who arrested me to give me a copy of the video recording etc?

Can I also ask for a list and the voice recording of the telephone conversations I had with them?

Many Thanks

You write to the police station and ask for a copy of recordings.
