The prime minister has said he will “support anything” that gets justice for motorcyclist Harry Dunn after he was asked about the prospect of a virtual trial for the woman accused of killing him.
Harry, 19, was hit outside RAF Croughton in Northamptonshire in August 2019 by Anne Sacoolas, who had just left the US intelligence base where her husband worked.
She later claimed diplomatic immunity and returned to America.
Boris Johnson was asked on Friday if he would support a virtual trial of Mrs Sacoolas, a prospect currently being considered by the UK’s attorney general.
He said: “There is the legal possibility that you mention. I think the best thing that I can say is, I will support anything that helps to bring justice for Harry Dunn and brings some sort of closure for his family because they have suffered for a long time.”
