Police are investigating late British royal Princess Diana's claims her former lover and bodyguard was murdered by British secret service agents.

Diana claimed - on a videotape which is currently being touted to British television companies - that BARRY MANNAKEE died suspiciously in 1987, following a collision between his motorbike and a car in London.

Metropolitan Commissioner SIR JOHN STEVENS has ordered detectives to re-interview everyone linked with the original case after the recording of Diana was seen by officers collecting evidence for a separate investigation into the Princess of Wales' own death, in the tragic car crash in Paris's Pont de L'Alma underpass on 31 August 1997.

PETER SETTELEN, a friend of Diana, is set to make millions from the tape he filmed of the late Princess after a British court ruled that it is his property.
