“President Trump, please pay attention. We’re a household in wreck,” Charlotte Charles advised Sky Information Friday. “We will’t grieve. Please, please let her get again on a airplane.”
Charles’s 19-year-old son, Harry Dunn, was killed Aug. 27 when his bike was struck head-on by a car driving on the flawed facet of the highway outdoors a US intelligence facility in Northamptonshire, England.
The motive force, who initially cooperated with police, is the partner of an American official assigned to the UK, the US embassy in London confirmed.

“I’ve referred to as the US Ambassador to precise the UK’s disappointment with their resolution and to induce the Embassy to re-consider it,” International Minister Dominic Raab stated Friday.
