A Sunday Express investigation has revealed that film footage of Diana’s last hours was “kept secret”. An exhaustive inquiry in the French capital has confirmed the existence of CCTV records of the night Diana died in August 1997.
A key traffic camera overlooking the scene of the crash in the Alma Tunnel was said to be switched off or malfunctioning.
However, one operator contacted 16 years on said: “Images would have been available if people wanted them to be. The truth is that every excuse possible was made to make sure that live film could be kept secret.
“This suited lots of powerful people, especially those who wanted to dismiss the crash as a simple traffic accident.”
The operator, who asked not to be identified because he “fears for my safety”, said he was convinced that all available film was “rounded up and hidden or destroyed”.
