Late British royal DIANA, Princess Of Wales was in the middle of a phone call just before her fatal 1997 car crash, a new eyewitness has told British police.

Officials at Scotland Yard in London are frantically trying to trace who the princess was talking to and the nature of the conversation, in a bid to debunk conspiracy theories surrounding the fatal accident in Paris, France which killed Diana, her lover DODI AL FAYED and driver HENRI PAUL.

Speculation that Diana was murdered to prevent her from embarrassing the British royal family by marrying a Muslim has been rife since her death.

But a French inquiry claims the incident was simply a road accident caused by Paul's drunkenness behind the wheel.
