Prime Minister "very much on the side" of Harry Dunn's family to see justice served

That's according to the Business Secretary, Andrea Leadsom

The Prime Minister is said to be "very much on the side" of Harry Dunn's family after the US secretary of state refused to return the suspect charged with causing the teenager's death to the UK.

Business Secretary Andrea Leadsom met Harry's family on Friday after she held talks with US ambassador Woody Johnson, the commander of RAF Croughton Colonel Bridget McNamara and the Chief Constable of Northamptonshire Police.

The 19-year-old died when his motorbike crashed into a car outside RAF Croughton in August last year.

Mrs Leadsom, addressing what she said to the US ambassador, expressed her disappointment on behalf of Harry's family, and also for the local community near to the RAF Croughton base.

"It's very concerning that this, which was at its heart a tragic road accident - which does unfortunately happen all the time, right across the world - but in this instance, the fact that there is no justice for Harry makes the pain of losing him so much worse and that's what we have to address," she said.
