Drivers caught on wrong side of road outside RAF base near where Harry Dunn was killed ‘by US spy’s wife’ in crash – The Sun

TWO drivers have been caught on the wrong side of the road near the RAF base where Harry Dunn was killed.

Police have released footage of one of the cars swerving around the road in another example of wreckless and dangerous driving.

Harry Dunn's family lawyer blasted the drivers saying the "footage has sent shivers down my spine and made me feel sick".
The spokesman said: "Enough is enough.
"I have been urging everyone in authority to take the matter seriously and ensure that no one who breaks the law coming off the base is allowed to hop on the next plane home and evade justice as Anne Sacoolas did."


Northamptonshire Chief Constable Nick Adderley has demanded an urgent meeting with the commander of US base RAF Croughton in light of two new incidents in the area that Anne Sacoolas is believed to have killed local teen Harry Dunn.

The footage of the near-miss near RAF Croughton emerged as police revealed details of a separate incident in which a police vehicle was struck by a car being driven on the wrong side of the road in October.

In a statement, the chief constable said: "I want to be absolutely clear on the fact that these incidents just cannot keep happening.


"We know all too well in the case of young Harry just how devastating they can be.

"Therefore the PFCC and I have requested an urgent meeting with the base commander at RAF Croughton to discuss safety on the roads around the base and I expect this meeting to take place next week.

"I do not underestimate how much of a concerning incident this was and how much worse it could have been, especially considering the circumstances in which 19-year-old Harry Dunn tragically died.

Today's video shows a blue BMW having to brake sharply on a country road near the base.


RAF Croughton became the focus of an international controversy after Mr Dunn was killed in a head-on collision with a car on August 27 last year.

Wife of a US intelligence official, Anne Sacoolas, 42, was charged for his death and is believed to have been driving on the wrong side of the road.

But she claimed diplomatic immunity after the collision and fled to the US. She has since refused to return to face justice despite pleas from Harry's family and UK officials.

The US State Department has also said a UK extradition request for Mrs Sacoolas is highly inappropriate and would be an abuse.


Business Secretary Andrea Leadsom, the constituency MP for Mr Dunn's family, wrote to the commander of the base to ask for an invitation to visit.

Harry's mum and dad, Charlotte Charles and Tim Dunn, are looking for assurances that safety measures are in place to make sure there are no similar incidents in the future.

Dunn family spokesman Radd Seiger continued: "This near-miss brings both issues sharply into focus and I now call on the UK Government to take immediate action to ensure the safety of their citizens living in and around these bases but also to make sure that never again will a so-called 'diplomat' be allowed to evade justice.

"It is Team Harry's position that no one on these bases has diplomatic immunity notwithstanding the assertions from both the UK and US governments.

"I call on the authorities to make a public statement to assure the nation that it will not be acceptable for the Americans to come over, injure us and just flee.

"Harry's parents want, more than anything else, for this to never happen to a family again."
