UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson has reportedly demanded Donald Trump hand over the US diplomat’s wife who is accused of killing Brit teen Harry Dunn.
BoJo is understood to have told the US President during a tense phone call that: “Justice must be done.”
The US has so far refused to send Anne Sacoolas, who allegedly drove her car into 19-year-old Harry while she was on the wrong side of the road, to the UK.
But, Harry’s family were given a major boost last week after the Crown charged her with causing death by dangerous driving over the August crash.
Washington had called the move “disappointing” and “unhelpful” ahead of a planned meeting between Boris and Trump in the US capital, next year.
A spokesman added: "The use of an extradition treaty to attempt to return the spouse of a former diplomat by force would establish an extraordinarily troubling precedent."

The alleged confrontation happened when Trump called Boris to congratulate the PM on his incredible election triumph.
It comes after BoJo spoke about the Dunn case on Saturday.
