THE mother of tragic motorcyclist Harry Dunn says Britain must stand up to the “bully” US amid diplomatic tensions.
Charlotte Charles’s demand came as it emerged the UK has agreed to extradite two fugitives to the US — which refuses to hand over crash suspect Anne Sacoolas, 42.

She is charged with causing 19-year-old’s Harry’s death by dangerous driving outside a US military base in Northamptonshire last August.
Sacoolas, the wife of a US intelligence official, claimed diplomatic immunity and was able to return to America.
The US angrily rejected an extradition request.
Ms Charles said no one should be extradited “until the US government agrees to play by the rules”.
A spokesman acting on behalf of Mr Dunn’s parents added: “Arrangements for sending wanted people across the Atlantic are hopelessly weighted in favour of the Americans.

The Home Office confirmed extradition requests had been approved by Home Secretary Priti Patel for Jabir Motiwala, 53, and Colin Wilkinson, 54, from Hull, last month.
Motiwala is wanted in the US to face charges of extortion, money laundering and conspiracy to import drugs while Wilkinson faces charges of downloading child sex abuse images in Texas, the Daily Express reported.
The pair are fighting the decisions and have appeals pending in the High Court.
