PM phoned Trump to ‘secure justice’ for Harry Dunn

Boris Johnson has held a phone call with Donald Trump in which he “reiterated the need” for the woman charged over Harry Dunn’s death to be returned to the UK.

The prime minister wanted to “secure justice” for the 19-year-old’s family after the US rejected an extradition request for American suspect Anne Sacoolas, according to Number 10.

The family of Harry Dunn have been fighting for Mrs Sacoolas to face trial in the UK after the teenager was killed in a head-on collision with a car outside RAF Croughton in Northamptonshire on 27 August last year.

‘Our priority is justice for Harry’

Mrs Sacoolas, 42, who was driving the car, claimed diplomatic immunity and returned to her home country following the crash. Her husband is believed to be a US intelligence officer.

Mr Johnson raised the topic during a phone conversation with the US president on Friday.
