What’s his mum said about his death?

Following Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s recent promise to raise this contentious issue with US President Donald Trump, Harry’s parents Charlotte and Tim spoke to Phillip Schofield and Holly Willoughby on today’s This Morning. 

 Describing her late son, mum Charlotte said he was“the centrepiece of the family”, Harry was a very experienced rider having ridden over 50,000 miles in three-and-a-half years. A distance most bikers won’t cover  in their whole lifetime. 

 On the evening of the accident his parents think Harry was on his way home having visited his twin brother in a nearby village. 

According to his bank statements, he then went to a local petrol garage to refuel his bike, went to the cash point and then took his usual back route home. 


What did his dad say about Harry’s death?

Dad Tim described how he first found out about the news. He revealed: “I heard that evening from a friend who worked for a local fire brigade. So I managed to get to the scene to see Harry.

Tearfully Tim continued: “I managed to speak with him [Harry], comfort him whilst the paramedics were doing their work. 

“He was struggling to breath and so they [the paramedics] came and told me that they were going to sedate him… He was complaining of chest pain.”

Phil asked if Anne was at the scene, to which Tim responded: “Well, if she was I didn’t see her. 

“She’d already left by the time I had got there. I don’t know that for sure.”

 Phil then asked if it struck Tim as weird that the driver of the car wasn’t present. To which Tim commented: “I did enquire, because obviously I was more concerned that they were okay. Because there’s been an accident and you don’t know. I’ve seen the car smashed in where obviously Harry had smashed into it… But the Police did tell me that she was okay.
