London: Scotland Yard today said that it has found “no credible evidence” to support a claim that the British Special Forces were involved in the tragic death of Princess Diana in a 1997 Paris car crash.  


Britain's Metropolitan Police had received material in August about the deaths of the Princess of Wales and her partner Dodi Al-Fayed in the car crash, which media reports suggested related to claims the Special Air Service (SAS) was involved.

New material had been reportedly passed to the police by an Army source after the allegations were made by the former wife of an SAS soldier, named only as Soldier N.  

The police said that having conducted a “scoping exercise” there was no basis to open a criminal investigation.  

A statement from the police said its assessment included “taking statements from a number of individuals and reviewing records”.

It said the investigating officers were given “unprecedented access” to Special Forces Directorate records.
