And the paper’s headline is adamant: “BODYGUARD: DRIVER WAS TO BLAME FOR THE DIANA CRASH.”

Trevor Rees is talking with ABC News breakfast show Good Morning America. Says he: “The accident happened because Henri Paul was taking alcohol and was driving the vehicle. That’s why the accident happened.”

The case rests, yer honour.

But what of the reaction to it? For that we go over to the Mohamed Al Fayed camp.

A spokeswoman for the Harrods tycoon tells us: “We are now in a legal process, and any discussion of the evidence by a potential witness should be handed over to the coroner.”

No small shock there. Usually we would expect to hear al Fayed calling Prince Philip names and, dressed in trademark vomit-and-cuffs shirts, demanding that Her Majesty the Queen be placed in the witness box, and open this winter’s Harrods sale (see press for details).

But, as we say, the case is closed. Rees, the sole survivor from the crash, says Paul was drunk. Paul was speeding. Diana was not wearing a seatbelt. Crash. She died.

So let us hear more of Rees, who cracked the mystery. But where is he? What have they done with him? As the Mirror reports, he has gone to Iraq.

Mirror readers learn that Iraq is “war-torn” and very possibly “dangerous”. Has Rees been smuggled there to be offed?

No. As reported: “But Rees – horrifically injured in the Paris crash that killed Diana, Dodi Fayed and chauffeur Henri Paul – is so desperate to avoid reliving the tragedy he is happy to take risk his life.”

Rees has taken a job as a security expect. (Lesson 1: wear your seatbelt.)

As for other facts, the Mirror notes that Mr Rees drives a silver Saab, his wife Ann is “a slim, attractive brunette”. She drives a BMW. Their £500,000 home has a gravel driveway.

Case closed.
