Boris Johnson gave his first wide ranging interview in Downing St and was pressed on whether the woman charged with the death of Harry Dunn, who died after a car crash outside RAF Croughton, would be forced to return to the UK to face justice.

The government has made an extradition request.

Mr Johnson said: "I think it's right that we have made the appeal and I have to be clear, I think the chances of America responding by sending Anne Sacoolas to this country are very low, it's just not what they do but we will continue to make every effort we can."

On the Royal Family, he said he is "absolutely confident" that they will sort out the issue with Prince Harry and Meghan stepping back and would do so "much more easily without running commentary from politicians".

Asked about media intrusion, Mr Johnson told interviewer Dan Walker: "I like your style.

"Everybody has got an opinion but it doesn't mean the problem is helped by politicians weighing in."

He also declined to answer questions about whether race had played a part in the coverage of Meghan joining the Royal Family.

Mr Johnson said it was "very likely" that there would be a trade deal by the end of the year, adding later that it was "epicly likely".

On whether Big Ben should chime at 11pm when the UK leaves the EU, he said the "bongs" would cost £500,000, so they would be costly.

He said: "We are looking at whether we can fund it because this thing costs half a million pounds."
