LONDON — London’s police force says there is “no credible evidence” that British special forces were involved in the deaths of Princess Diana and her boyfriend, Dodi Fayed and it will not reopen the investigation.

Scotland Yard has been looking into claims that the SAS had played a role. It conducted a “scoping exercise” to assess the credibility of the information.

The police said in a statement Tuesday that they were given unprecedented access to British special forces records.

The claims, widely reported in the British media, were made by an ex-SAS member identified only as Soldier N.

Diana, Dodi and their driver, Henri Paul, died in a car accident in Paris on August 31, 1997.
