Sacoolas is accused of causing death by dangerous driving after a fatal road crash outside US military base RAF Croughton in Northamptonshire on 27 August 2019.

A spokesman for the CPS said : "This is to enable ongoing discussions between the CPS and Anne Sacoolas's legal representatives to continue."

Reacting to the announcement, the Dunn family's spokesman Radd Seiger said the hearing had now been postponed.

The suspect had diplomatic immunity asserted on her behalf by the US government following the collision, and was able to leave the UK 19 days after the incident.

a decision was reached to charge ms sacoolas with causing mr dunn's death by dangerous driving in december 2019.

The CPS previously said in a statement that the 44-year-old's case would be heard at Westminster magistrates court on Tuesday, but the hearing has now been vacated.

he said : "we have full faith in the crown prosecution service and will wait to hear from them with further developments, hopefully in the near future.

"Harry's family were obviously looking forward to the hearing on Tuesday so they hope an agreement will be reached sooner rather than later.

"It is vitally important for their mental health that justice and closure is achieved soon."

Harry Dunn's alleged killer will no longer face a court hearing, to enable "ongoing discussions" with the Crown Prosecution Service to continue.

"mrs sacoolas has a right to a fair trial.

It is extremely important there should be no reporting, commentary or sharing of information online which could in any way prejudice any proceedings."

Anne Sacoolas, 44, was expected to appear in the dock at Westminster Magistrates' Court in central London on 18 January after the CPS launched criminal proceedings in the UK last month.
