The investigation into the car crash which killed Diana, Princess of Wales, has concluded that no one involved should face criminal charges, it was claimed last night. The official report, at the end of a 16-month inquiry, is said to have absolved staff at the Ritz Hotel in Paris of any blame and lifted manslaughter charges against nine French press photographers.

The crash was a result of "excess speed" and "poor control of the vehicle by the driver". However, the inquiry judge is said to have decided that three of the pursuing paparazzi should be charged under France's "Good Samaritan" laws for allegedly taking pictures of the aftermath instead of helping.
