The American woman accused of causing the death of teenage motorcyclist Harry Dunn is wanted internationally after an Interpol Red Notice was issued for her arrest.

Anne Sacoolas originally left the country under diplomatic immunity following a crash outside an RAF base in Northamptonshire in August 2019.

Since then she's been charged with causing death by dangerous driving with calls for her to return to the UK to face trial.

  • ITV News Anglia's Becky Jago spoke to Harry's mother Charlotte Charles.

Sacoolas, the wife of a US intelligence official based at RAF Croughton, claimed diplomatic immunity following the crash and was able to return to her home country, sparking an international outcry.

She was charged with causing death by dangerous driving in December but the extradition request from the Home Office was rejected the following month.

On Monday (11th May) the Dunn family spokesman Radd Seiger tweeted to say: "For those slightly confused, I can confirm that Interpol have circulated a Red Notice in respect of Anne Sacoolas."

Shadow foreign secretary Lisa Nandy said the decision to issue a Red Notice highlighted the "clear and repeated failings of the Foreign Office" in dealing with the case.
