Harry Dunn Suspect Anne Sacoolas 'Willing To Do Community Service'
The suspect in the death of teenager Harry Dunn has said she would be willing to complete community service in the US, make a “contribution” in his memory and meet his family, her lawyer has said. Anne Sacoolas has “never denied” responsibility for the road collision that killed the 19-year-old motorcyclist in August 2019, lawyer Amy Jeffress said.But Jeffress said since the charge pending in Britain against Sacoolas would not usually result in a prison sentence in the US, her client was not inclined to return to the UK to face trial.The US government asserted diplomatic immunity on behalf of 43-year-old Sacoolas following the road crash which killed Dunn outside RAF Croughton in Northamptonshire.She was charged with causing death by dangerous driving, but an extradition request submitted by the Home Office was rejected by the US State Department in January last year.Jeffress said she and Sacoolas were striving to resolve the case in a manner that would not involve a return to the UK.“We understand that community service is a typical sentence for offences like this,” Jeffress told BBC Radio 4’s Law in Action programme.“We have offered ever since over a year ago that she would be willing to serve that kind of a sentence and to make a contribution in Harry’s memory, to take other steps to try to bring some peace to the family.”She said Sacoolas was “truly sorry for Harry’s family and the pain that his has caused”.“She’s willing to meet with the family to provide whatever information they are seeking; and we truly hope that we can do that and give the family some measure of peace,” Jeffress told the programme.Jeffress added that Sacoolas had only been in the UK for “a few weeks” when she had made the tragic mistake of “instinctively” driving her car on the wrong side of the road and colliding with Dunn’s motorcycle.But she added such cases in the US were only prosecuted criminally if there was “evidence of recklessness that rises to the level of close to intent – drunk driving, distracted driving, a hit-and-run situation or excessive speeding… But there was none of that here”.Jeffress told the BBC she understood this was one of the reasons the US did not waive Sacoolas’s diplomatic immunity.She also denied reports Sacoolas had not called for help after the crash, saying she had flagged down another motorist who had called an ambulance while Sacoolas notified police at Croughton, where she worked with her husband for the US State Department.Sacoolas had cooperated with local police, Jeffress said, supplied a zero-reading breathalyser test, surrendered her phone to show she had not been using it, and was interviewed by police for several hours.Jeffress’s comments come a week after Dunn’s family was given the go-ahead to proceed with a civil claim for damages against Sacoolas and her husband.A judge’s ruling in Virginia has taken the Dunn family a step closer to a legal showdown with suspect Anne Sacoolas, 18 months on from Dunn’s death.Should there be no settlement in the case, the next legal step would be a “deposition”, in which Sacoolas and her husband would be forced to provide their account of events outside of court.Related...Anne Sacoolas On ‘Wrong Side Of The Road For 20 Seconds’ Before Fatal Harry Dunn CrashUS And UK Amend ‘Anomaly’ That Allowed Harry Dunn’s Alleged Killer To Claim ImmunityHarry Dunn: Dominic Raab Says UK Cannot 'Force' US To Comply With Extradition Order

Paying nurses properly doesn't chime with the Tories' post-Covid vision for society | Zoe Williams
The government’s derisory 1% NHS offer shows they have no plans to rebalance the UK in favour of those who deserve better As children across the UK return to school, to classrooms of varying ventilation and not-yet-necessarily-vaccinated teachers, as nurses swallow their real-terms pay cut and carry on working, a pattern emerges: this is a government crossing the road to start a fight.It would not have involved a vast recalibration to add teachers to the priority list for vaccinations. Indeed, given that the vaccine is all that stands between us and the pandemic worsening, and as we watch schools reopening with bated breath to see what it does to transmission, it would have been eminently plausible to make the public health case for giving teachers a jab, without even muddying the waters with questions of gratitude or how left wing their unions are.

There will never be a cuttlefish in the cabinet – and that makes me sad | Emma Beddington
Octopuses and their relatives are remarkably clever and controlled. How many of our top politicians can say the same?Back in the gentler days of the internet, before it was just bots and people shouting at tea, I had a blog, and through it, occasional exchanges with a woman I described as my “cephalopod correspondent”. She would write, sharing interesting titbits about squid behaviour, cuttlefish news and, once, a picture of “an Octopus cyanea on a penny”.I think of her often now, as every week it seems we learn something spectacular about the tentacular. Octopuses are competent and creative problem-solvers, can master mazes, and frequently escape from captivity. They can even predict the outcome of football matches (OK, possibly not, but octopus Paul’s strike rate was impressive). Our collective fascination only deepened with last year’s Netflix documentary My Octopus Teacher, a lovely exploration of the curiosity and resourcefulness of one uncommonly touching common octopus. Perhaps even better was the relatable recent revelation that octopuses sometimes punch their fish co-workers when on joint hunting missions: it has certainly deepened my respect for them.

Acts of Desperation by Megan Nolan review – fierce novel of obsessive love
The Irish writer’s debut conjures an unhealthy relationship with passion, wit and insightThere are toxic relationships, and then there’s the relationship at the centre of Megan Nolan’s fearless debut. From compulsive beginning to violent end, the love affair between the novel’s narrator, a young university dropout in Dublin about whom we learn everything – everything – but her name, and the older Ciaran, a half-Danish poet, is supremely messed up.For a start, there’s the sheer weight of expectation that Nolan’s heroine brings to it. Love is “the great consolation”, she insists. She finds Ciaran so beautiful she worships him, rhapsodising about his truffle-scented mouth. Readers may not be so charmed. For a start, he doesn’t like modern fiction. He also loathes seeing his girlfriend drunk, which is problematic given that she marked the night of their meeting by getting so lit she burst the blood vessels around her eyes throwing up.

Why was the warranty on my £469 scooter a non-starter?
When it failed because of ‘damp and cold weather’, a repair was a no-goI purchased a Xiaomi Mi electric scooter for £469 from Halfords on 1 July 2020. As the weather got colder I noticed it was losing power and speed, and at Christmas it completely stopped working and charging. It is under a two- year warranty.I contacted Halfords and returned the scooter as requested. I have been told that I must pay £285 for a repair as it was “out of warranty” due to liquid damage.
