Remember Harry Dunn, the 19 year old British motorbike killed in a collision with a vehicle driven by the wife of a US diplomat Anne Sacoolas? It is alleged she was driving on the wrong side of the road, but fled to the US under the protection of the US embassy before charges could be brought.

Last month, Harry’s parents travelled to the US to try and raise the profile of the case and force Sacoolas back to the UK. During their visit they were invited to the White House, where Trump revealed he had camera crews and Sacoolas next door and wanted to effect an on-screen meeting. Well they rejected that.

But somehow it gets worse. Today they reveal that Trump had Steve Mnuchin on standby on behalf of the Treasury Department to pay them off there and then.
