Harry Dunn: Car in near miss on wrong side of road near RAF Croughton


Police are investigating a near miss on the road where teenager Harry Dunn was killed, after a new video emerged appearing to show a car driving on the wrong side of the road.

Northamptonshire Police said it is "aware of footage shared on social media on Friday relating to a near-miss close to RAF Croughton" and said "a full investigation is being carried out and witnesses are sought".

The video, which shows a vehicle turning out of the base straight on to the right side of the road, is time and date stamped and appears to have been filmed on Thursday at around 5.45pm.

The oncoming car beeps its horn and slows down, at which point the approaching vehicle pulls back on to the left side of the road.

Harry Dunn, 19, died in August last year after a head-on crash outside the US base in Northamptonshire.

The driver of the car, Anne Sacoolas, 42, claimed diplomatic immunity and returned to the US, where she has been since Harry died.

Calls for a public inquiry from Harry's family have been rejected by the Foreign Office.
