Chief Constable Nick Adderley said: “The suspect has cooperated fully with police and authorities and requested to be interviewed under caution in the US.

” She did not want to provide a pre- prepared statement, as is her right. “

Being interviewed under caution means Mrs Sacoolas will have the right not to answer questions if she does not want to – but anything she does say can be used in a legal case.

During what he admitted was a “fairly unprecedented” press conference for this stage of an investigation, Mr Adderley said officers had worked “tirelessly” on the case since the accident.

He said that Mrs Sacoolas not being in the country “frustrates the investigation, but does not stop it”, and that police had now passed the case on to the Crown Prosecution Service.

He added: “The suspect cooperated with police at the scene and spoke with authorities there. Officers attended the home address of the suspect next day (28 August), and again she fully cooperated. “

MrsSacoolas, 43, has offered an apology over the fatal crash outside RAF Croughton, but has been told by Harry’s motherCharlotte Charlesthat “sorry doesn’t cut it”.

Mr Adderley said Mrs Charles and Harry’s father Tim Dunn had acted with “dignity and grace” since the accident, but warned family spokesman Radd Seiger to “exercise restraint in his commentary”.

He said he understood the “emotion and anxiety” caused by the case, but added: “I urge him to exercise restraint in his commentary as it is not helpful. “

Mr Seiger has regularly spoken of the family’s disappointment with how the case has been handled by the UK and US governments and was critical of a statement given byForeign Secretary Dominic Rabbon Monday.

Mr Raab revealed that the US had warned Britain they would remove Mrs Sacoolas from the UK, and that police could do nothing to stop her from leaving.

He said the government position was thatMrs Sacoolas’ immunity ended when she left the UK.

Mr Seiger said of the statement: “We are not able to believe everything he says and take it at face value.”

Harry Dunn crash suspect ‘must commit to UK return’                

Mr Adderley said police were supportive of the decision to delay telling the family that Mrs Sacoolas had left the UK, which had been criticized by Mr Seiger.

The force was informed on 16 September that a waiver to counter the diplomatic immunity claim had been rejected, meaning police could not involve Mrs Sacoolas in the investigation any further.

Mr Adderley said he supported the decision not to tell the family for a few days due to the timing of Harry’s funeral, which came two days later.

He added that Mrs Sacoolas and her family were said to be “utterly devastated” by the accident , which happened when her car collided with Harry’s motorbike.
