Martin Bashir's Diana interview won't face criminal investigation, police say

BBC journalist Martin Bashir will not face a criminal investigation over documents related to his interview with Princess Diana, Metropolitan Police says.

It had been alleged the journalist forged bank statements in order to secure the landmark Panorama interview with the Princess of Wales in 1995.

In a statement, the Met said officers had sought legal advice from internal lawyers, independent counsel and the Crown Prosecution Service and determined is was "not appropriate" to launch a criminal probe.
