The parents of a teenager killed in a car crash involving a US diplomat's wife have said they are "angry and frustrated" after their meeting with Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab.

Charlotte Charles and Tim Dunn, whose son Harry Dunn was killed in an accident in Northamptonshire on 27 August, held a meeting with Mr Raab at the Foreign Office in central London.

The suspect in the crash is a US woman who has since flown back to America having been granted diplomatic immunity.

Speaking after the 45 minute-long meeting, a family spokesman said: "To say we are disappointed with the outcome of the meeting would be an understatement."

Mr Raab met the US ambassador on Tuesday to make his case, amid questions over whether Mrs Sacoolas should even have been granted diplomatic immunity.

Doubts emerged after an international lawyer told Sky News that her husband Jonathan Sacolas does not appear on a list of registered diplomats.

The Foreign Office later insisted that he was an accredited diplomat in the eyes of the British government, therefore his wife was entitled to diplomatic immunity.

Meanwhile, a crowdfunding page set up for the family of Harry has sailed past its £10,000 target.

The GoFundMe page, called "Justice 4 Harry", is intended to help the family begin their "campaign to search for justice" and to help Harry's twin brother Niall.
