Harry Dunn died in hospital after his motorbike was involved in a crash outside RAF Croughton

The mother of Harry Dunn has welcomed a decision to give driver training to staff at an RAF base near where her son was killed.

Motorcyclist Mr. Dunn, 19, was hit by a car on 27 August near RAF Croughton, a US Air Force communications station.

It is believed suspect Anne Sacoolas, who left for the US claiming diplomatic immunity, was on the wrong side of the road.

Northamptonshire Chief Constable Nick Adderley said he would fund training.

He said “saving lives” was the primary priority of the free lessons on Highway Code awareness, UK road laws, and protocols – which will be offered to all new arrivals at RAF Croughton.

A video emerged of a car being driven on the wrong side of the road near the base on Friday.

Mr. Dunn’s mother Charlotte Charles said it was “wonderful” that the police force was going to introduce the training.

“It’s a small step but it’s a positive step,” she said.

“Our roads are very different in England in comparison to what they are in the US, we’ve got many more hazards, lots of hairpin bends, lots of roads that are only wide enough for one car, so driver training is particularly important.”
