Eric Gigou, of the Brigade Criminelle, said ‘we have done everything we can to understand what happened’ and more than 1,000 people were interviewed by French authorities in the investigation.

He told the documentary: ‘In my mind, the only door that remains open is the testimony of the driver of the Fiat Uno.’

Diana’s death became the subject of many conspiracy theories, from claims by Dodi’s father that the couple were murdered in a plot hatched by MI6 on the orders of the Duke of Edinburgh, to suggestions that Diana was pregnant.
