Princess Diana’s brother calls on Scotland Yard to investigate “deceitful” Panorama programme about his sister Princess Diana

Princess Diana’s brother has asked Scotland Yard to investigate how reporter Martin Bashir used false documents to secure a landmark interview with her.

Earl Spencer has written to the Metropolitan Police chief Dame Cressida Dick.

He cited the report by Lord Dyson that Bashir was “deceitful” in obtaining the now infamous interview with an obviously “vulnerable” Princess.

The police have said they will “assess” the contents of the Dyson Report.
