No further details were provided by Scotland Yard.

The new information will be assessed by officers from the Specialist Crime and Operations Command.

Following an inquest, a British jury ruled in 2008 that the deaths of Diana and her boyfriend resulted from “grossly negligent driving of the following vehicles and of the Mercedes.”

Diana was 36 years old when she was killed in the car accident in Paris on Aug. 31, 1997.
