Dominic Raab has defended his decision to seek legal costs from the Dunn family.

Earlier this week, he said: "We cannot allow ourselves to be sued without taking the normal action in defending ourselves when the position that the representative and the family are pursuing in law is wrong.”

He added: “It pains me because I want to give them the solace of justice in this case.

“But we also need to protect the taxpayers’ money and the legal position that we set out, which is the correct one.”

Face consequences

The letter also addresses Ms Sacoolas, who has not returned to the UK despite pleas for her to do so.

The family wrote: "We wish you no ill will. But you took our son's life that night and you must return to the UK to face the consequences of your actions as anyone else would have to do.

"We know it will be difficult for you to do that but it will ultimately be in your best interests as well as ours so please think about that carefully.

"Our legal system is well developed and fairness is at its heart."
