Northamptonshire Police Chief Constable Nick Adderley has given a written apology to the family of teenage motorcyclist Harry Dunn for a “breakdown” in communications.

He promised the 19-year-old's parents that he will work "tirelessly" to bring the US suspect back to the UK.

Harry was killed when his motorbike was involved in a head-on collision with a car outside RAF Croughton in Northamptonshire on August 27. Mrs Sacoolas claimed diplomatic immunity after the crash and was able to return to the US. It is thought she was driving on the wrong side of the road.

Harry’s mother, Charlotte Charles, was left in tears after watching recent footage of 42-year-old Anne Sacoolas driving again, reversing out of her driveway in the state of Virginia.

Charlotte remained at home unable to attend the meeting with Mr Adderly. Harry’s father Tim Dunn, stepmother Tracey Dunn and stepfather Bruce Charles all sat down with Mr Adderley for the meeting after the family originally called for the police chief to resign.

Mr Adderley has said that any perceived fallout had been a "total misunderstanding", and that certain tweets and conversations had been "completely misconstrued". Mr Adderley also said tweets calling for his resignation had been "completely blown out of proportion".

The Dunn’s lawyer, Radd Seiger, gave an update on how the family are feeling:
