HARRY DUNN ROAD SAFETY REVIEW WELCOMED BY LOCAL LIB DEM COUNCILLORS


Local Lib Dem Councillors welcomed the news that The Road Safety Foundation (RSF) have been contracted by Government to look into the safety of roads near RAF Croughton, following the death of Croughton teenager Harry Dunn.

“We very much welcome this review into road safety to and from RAF Croughton,” said Councillor Mark Allen. “However, local residents who have seen the anguish of the Dunn family and justice being denied to the family, may be wondering quite what has taken so long.”

“Everyone here stands with the Dunn family,” said Hazel Hewison. “The green ribbons all around our area show this. This road safety review may shed light on what happened that terrible evening in August 2019 and it may also help make sure this kind of terrible tragedy doesn’t happen again.”

Inspectors from the RSF will conduct ‘visual safety reviews’ on roads leading from the base. They will focus on three routes to Banbury, two routes to Bicester, one route to Brackley and the route between Croughton village and Aynho.

Further Information

The Road Safety Foundation have been contracted by Government to look into the safety of roads near 10 airbases around the country, including RAF Croughton.

Harry Dunn, a 19-year-old motorcyclist, died after being involved in a crash with US citizen Anne Sacoolas’ car being driven on the wrong side of the road near Croughton on August 27, 2019.

Anne Sacoolas used a legal loophole, which has now been amended, to claim immunity through her husband, who was working at RAF Croughton for the US government, and left the country.Picture: Mark Allen, Liberal Democrat Councillor for Middleton Cheney (South Northamptonshire District Council)
