Probe into New information on Diana's death

London, Aug 17 : British police is assessing new information it has recently received about the deaths of Princess Diana in 1997, media reports said Saturday.

Asserting that it was "not a re-investigation", Scotland Yard said it was "scoping" the information and "assessing its relevance and credibility" about deaths of Diana and Dodi Al Fayed in a Paris car crash on Aug 31 1997.

In a statement, the Metropolitan Police said the assessment would be carried out by officers from the specialist crime and operations command.

A Met Police spokesman said that the force would "not discuss the source of the information" it was assessing, the BBC reported.

An inquest held at the Royal Courts of Justice in London in 2008 found Diana and Al Fayed had been unlawfully killed due to the "gross negligence" of their driver who was driving drunk.
