A US official’s wife who is alleged to have killed British teenager Harry Dunn is “wanted internationally” by police.

Anne Sacoolas was charged in the UK with death by dangerous driving in December, but in January the US rejected a Home Office request to fly her to the UK for trial.

International police agency Interpol has now issued a Red Notice for her arrest – meaning she will be arrested if she leaves the US – according to an email sent by Northamptonshire Police to Mr Dunn’s family and seen by the Standard.

Mr Dunn was killed last year after a car crashed into his motorbike in Northamptonshire.

Ms Sacoolas, the wife of a US official, claimed diplomatic immunity and returned to her home country, sparking an outcry from Mr Dunn’s family and supporters.

The US said again in April that at the time of the death of Mr Dunn Ms Sacoolas had diplomatic immunity.
