BORIS Johnson has pressed Donald Trump to extradite the diplomats wife accused of killing Harry Dunn.

He told the President in a tense phone call: Justice must be done.

Home Secretary Priti Patel hugged Harry’s father during their meeting today

Harry Dunn, 19, died when his motorbike was hit by a car allegedly driven by US diplomat’s wife Anne Sacoolas

The US is refusing to send back Anne Sacoolas, who was allegedly driving the car that hit 19-year-old Harrys motorbike in August.

The Crown last week charged her with causing death by dangerous driving a move called disappointing and unhelpful by the Americans.

The rift threatens to sour relations between the leaders ahead of a possible PM visit to Washington DC next year.

And it reveals Boris is not afraid to stand up to Trump, a charge levelled at him by Labour in the election campaign.

The confrontation came when Trump rang last Monday to congratulate Boris on his win.

Boris hinted about it when he spoke about the Dunn case on Saturday.

And a No10 source said: The PM pointed out to the President that it is important they ensure justice is done, and the issue is sorted.

We can reveal that Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab is ending immunity rights for families of US servicemen at RAF Croughton, Northants, near where Harry died.

Charlotte Charles and Tim Dunn, parents of Harry Dunn are said to be incredibly reassured by Ms Patels vow that the law would be fully pursued

 

The husband of Ms Sacoolas, 42, worked at the base and she flew directly from there to the US after the incident. Yesterday Home Secretary Priti Patel visited Harrys dad Tim at home.

Family spokesman Radd Seiger said the family were incredibly reassured by Ms Patels vow that the law would be fully pursued.

Downing Street said the PM has not yet received a formal invitation to visit Mr Trump in the New Year. Any major trips are unlikely until after Brexit on January 31.
