Royal News: A former MI5 employee has claimed the British secret services only planned to injure Princess Diana in the car crash that killed her.Ex-spy Annie McMahon, who worked for the British Intelligence agency between 1991 and 1995, told the Guernsey Press that the ministry wanted to injure the princess so she would break off her relationship with Dodi Al Fayed.Ms McMahon claims MI6 were keen that the royal, who died in 1997, was not killed in the Paris accident - because they didn't want her to become a public martyr. But their plan backfired when the princess and her lover, Dodi, were killed together when the Mercedes they were travelling in crashed into a pillar on a Paris underpass. Meanwhile, the car the couple were travelling in is being examined for the first time since the crash eight years ago.Scotland Yard detectives have finally been allowed to inspect the mangled remains of the vehicle because of a long delay by the French investigators.An insider said: "There is no doubt that it holds vital clues in the mystery of Diana's death.
"Until now, the job has not been done properly, but we firmly believe all that is about to change."
Diana's death has spawned a phalanx of conspiracy theories after it emerged the car the couple were originally supposed to be travelling in was swapped at the last minute because it wouldn't start.
And 10 months before her death, the princess, the first wife of Prince Charles, wrote a series of notes predicting her own death in a car which had had its breaks tampered with.
She wrote in the letter, penned in October 1996: "This particular phase in my life is the most dangerous." She said "XXXXXXXXXXX is planning 'an accident' in my car, brake failure and serious head injury in order to make the path clear for Charles to marry".
