Mr Dunn said they were struggling to understand how Mrs Sacoolas was given diplomatic immunity and how she could leave the country.

He said: "She was compliant with the police, she admitted at the time she was in the wrong.

"We know from the police she was going to stay in the country, she was permitted to stay here for three years.

"And then we didn't think this would be what is happening, so to hear the news a few weeks after the funeral was devastating."

Mrs Charles said the family are "not coping" and just trying to get through each hour of every day after the death of the son they said kept the family together after she and Mr Dunn split up when Harry was young.

She said: "Harry always fought for what he thought was right. We're honouring him by doing this. We just have to keep going to try to get some closure.

"All we need to do is to meet her, all we need to do is ask her to come back. It's not much to ask. She's left a family in complete ruin. We're broken.

"Many of us, not just direct parents, siblings, grandparents, aunties, uncles, nieces - it's everything.

"We're all broken and we're just utterly shocked and appalled that somebody is allowed to get on a plane and go home and avoid our justice system."

Mr Dunn added that their understanding of diplomatic immunity is to keep diplomats safe if they are under threat "not for something like this where they've hurt somebody".
