Detectives probe 'SAS link' to Diana's death

By Catherine Wylie

Police are examining new information which alleges that Princess Diana and her boyfriend Dodi Fayed were murdered by a member of the British military.

Scotland Yard said it is "scoping" the information and "assessing its relevance and credibility".

The claims were passed to the Metropolitan Police by the Royal Military Police (RMP), which was told of them by the former parents-in-law of a former soldier based on information that the had talked about in the past, according to a military source.

A letter given to the RMP is said to allege that the SAS was "behind Princess Diana's death", according to the Sunday People, and to also refer to the princess's "secret diary", in which she allegedly made certain allegations.

Diana (36), Dodi (42) and chauffeur Henri Paul died after their Mercedes crashed in a Paris tunnel after it left the Ritz Hotel on the morning of August 31, 1997.

Inquests into the deaths concluded in 2008, with a jury returning a verdict that the princes Mr Fayed Dodi were unlawfully killed.
