"It's taken an awful lot out of them and we're received that it's done and we can take our small steps forward today" Mr Seiger told Eddie Mair.

He said that the family can now take "positive steps forward" following the resolution, adding that "the sooner we can get this all wrapped up, the better."

"You've outlined the difficulties of reaching this civil agreement" Eddie noted, "I imagine the criminal case is more complex."

"The difficulties involved are well known" Mr Seiger admitted, telling LBC that "this family are victims of a crime" and this must be justified.

He told Eddie that the nation "must leave it to the Crown Prosecution Service" to work towards a conclusion.

"We can say that we know they're doing their job, they've been right behind this family from the moment they charged Ms Sacoolas back in December 2019."

"I'm sure they'll be making an announcement soon," he told Eddie.
