Asked about the case, the Prime Minister told reporters on Tuesday: "I have intervened with the President already on that, I think on a couple of occasions, and we are hopeful that progress can be made though I wouldn't want to go further than that, it's by no means a certainty."

Mr Trump - who hosted the Dunns in the White House - said the family were "lovely people" but added that Mrs Sacoolas could not be prosecuted because she had diplomatic immunity at the time of the crash. He said: "We're trying to work something out."

Harry's father Tim Dunn wrote in the Guardian that during an earlier meeting with Mr Raab, the politician had little interest in helping the family. He said: "Mr Raab was cold, stiff and impersonal. He offered his condolences, yet they only came across as empty words.

"I had allowed my hopes to build up, and now I realised we had been brought in on false pretences. It felt to us like a publicity stunt so that Mr Raab could make it look to the public as though he was doing something for us."
