Harry Dunn death: US says extradition request ‘highly inappropriate’

Home Secretary Priti Patel has formally sent an extradition notice to the US Justice Department for Anne Sacoolas over a fatal accident in which a British teen was killed.

Mrs Sacoolas left the UK after the car she was driving hit Harry Dunn, 19, outside RAF Croughton in Northamptonshire in August.

In December, she was charged by the CPS with death by dangerous driving.

She is still in the US having claimed diplomatic immunity shortly after the fatal accident. Her husband is thought to be a US intelligence officer.
