Police chief ‘considering’ using CCTV and stop and search at RAF Croughton in Northamptonshire

CCTV and stop and search operations could be used outside an American airbase in Northamptonshire where a teenager died.

It comes after footage emerged of another driver in a near-miss on the wrong side of the road near RAF Croughton.

Northamptonshire Police Chief Constable Nick Adderley was reportedly "horrified and sickened" after the video showed a blue BMW involved in a near-miss close to RAF Croughton, with what appears to be one of the registration numbers used on US government vehicles in the UK.

The footage was released 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.

Harry Dunn, 19, was killed when his motorbike crashed into a car outside RAF Croughton in Northamptonshire on August 27 last year.

Anne Sacoolas, the wife of a US diplomat, is believed to have been driving on the wrong side of the road and has since been charged with causing death by dangerous driving.

The 42-year-old suspect claimed diplomatic immunity after the incident and was able to return to her home country, sparking an international controversy.

Anne Sacoolas was charged with causing the 19-year-old's death by dangerous driving.

Nick Adderley is reportedly prepared to step up the safety measures if he is"not satisfied" after an urgent meeting with the base's commander, BridgetMcNamara.

Speaking about the reaction to the footage, Radd Seiger, spokesman for the Dunn family, told PA: "I was astonished on Saturday how quickly the authorities got in touch with me.

"I was in touch with the Chief Constable, Nick Adderley, our MP, AndreaLeadsom, Home Secretary Priti Patel and Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab.

"Each of them were as horrified and sickened by what they saw, like I was, and we all discussed how important it was to take immediate action to bring this type of driving to an end quickly so that there is no further bloodshed.

"The Chief Constable is demanding an urgent meeting with the base commander, Bridget McNamara, to discuss immediate remedial steps.

"He indicated that if he was not satisfied with the outcome, he would be ensuring that his force would put up CCTV cameras around the base and undertake regular stop and search exercises at the exit to the base to ensure that the drivers coming off it knew what they were doing."
