Fresh call for foreign secretary to resign after claims he did not know about Harry Dunn case until after alleged killer left UK

"We only wanted the truth from him, nothing else"

Harry Dunn's family have been told by the Government that the foreign secretary did not find out about the case until after Anne Sacoolas left the country.

The revelation has prompted the Northamptonshire campaigners to raise further questions about the Foreign Office's handling of the affair and repeat calls for Dominic Raab to resign.

The teenager's mother, Charlotte Charles, said: "We only wanted the truth from him, nothing else.

"Whether he knew or not, and I refuse to believe he didn’t know, he has to resign or be sacked."

"It was a 'no brainer' to get him in there for one last game and it's a nice feeling that we would all be there together."

Harry, 19, died after his motorcycle was involved in a collision with Anne Sacoolas' car, which she has admitted was on the wrong side of the road, near Croughton on August 27, 2019.

The American driver initially co-operated with police but then told officers she had diplomatic immunity before flying back to the United States on September 15.

The Foreign Office has told the family in an email that Mr Raab was told about the ordeal on September 16, despite officials discussing the potential 'unpalatable headlines' three days after the crash.

On September 13, a request to waive Sacoolas' diplomatic immunity was rejected by the US Government.

The next day, a Government official texted his US counterpart saying there was 'not much mileage' in the American family staying in the country.

Harry's family's spokesman, Radd Seiger, said: "It is utterly inconceivable that Mr Raab was unaware of Harry until after Mrs Sacoolas had gone. Mr Raab has to go."

Sacoolas remains in the US after being charged with causing death by dangerous driving and the US Government refusing to extradite her.

A Foreign Office spokesman said "We remain clear with the US that the refusal to extradite Anne Sacoolas amounts to a denial of justice, and that she should return to the UK.

"The case is of the highest priority for the Foreign Secretary who continues to raise the case with the US Government."
