Actual 'Whore's hair'

London - (Associated Mess): Officers of the Met's Serious Fraud Squad swooped on a central London retail address early this morning after reports that a 'miracle cure' peddler was trying to flog locks of hair belonging to the late Princess Diana.

The offending article had been advertised on a healing crystals website and purported to have been authenticated by the vendor - the 'phoney pharaoh' himself - cash-strapped Mohammed Fayed of Harabs department store in Knightsbridge.

But police received complaints from prospective purchasers that the item in question looked an awful lot like equine 'whore's hair' after the relic's catchy packaging logo was translated from the original Farsi.

This morning's raid is the culimnation of several months of intensive probings into a spate of pre-Xmas sales of fake memorabilia and nostalgia items associated with the late Diana, including samples of her toenail clippings, ear wax and colonic irrigation therapy by-products.

Charges are expected to be announced soon.
