Crash mum’s fury at Dominic Raab ‘publicity stunt’

Killed: Harry Dunn, 19

THE family at the centre of a row over diplomatic immunity after their son died in a car crash called a meeting with foreign secretary Dominic Raab a ‘publicity stunt’.

Harry Dunn, 19, was killed when his motorbike was in a collision with a vehicle driven by American Anne Sacoolas, 42, who was later granted diplomatic immunity.

Mrs Sacoolas was thought to be on the wrong side of the road near RAF Croughton — a US intelligence hub in Northamptonshire where her husband Jonathan worked.

Yesterday, Mr Raab met Mr Dunn’s parents, Charlotte Charles and Tim Dunn. Afterwards, Ms Charles said: ‘We are no further forward. It feels like it was just a government publicity stunt to show they are trying to help.’ Mr Dunn added he felt ‘extremely let down’.

Last night, Boris Johnson called on US president Donald Trump to intervene when the pair spoke on the phone.

‘The PM urged him to reconsider the US position so the individual involved can return to the UK, cooperate with police and allow Harry’s family to receive justice,’ said a No.10 spokesman. He added the president was ‘deeply saddened’ by what happened and expressed his condolences to Harry’s parents.
