Detective Superintendent Sarah Johnson told Sky News that the force is working with the Crown Prosecution Service and other agencies to progress its investigation - even though the suspect is not in the UK.

She added: "We are really determined to make sure we can progress this investigation to seek the outcome that's correct and right for Harry and his family."

Ms Johnson emphasised that police were yet to name Mrs Sacoolas as the suspect involved in the crash, and that the force was hoping for a "judicial outcome" to the case.

"It very much seems that the lady in question wants to start co-operating with the discussions and the investigations and I think that we should support that.

"We need to ensure that justice is done but obviously that co-operation with this investigation takes place. That is absolutely right."
