In a desperate bid for publicity, Paul Burrell, former butler to Princess Diana, has shocked the world with the revelation that she was secretly planning to take up an executive position on the board of failed bank Northern Rock.

Warming to his theme he said that: "Diana was killed because the royal family feared that her highly risky strategy of selling risky mortgages was unsustainable and might bring one of the UK's largets banks to its knees."

He continued that it was impossible that she wanted to marry Dodi Fayed as she was determined to dedicate herself to a career in corporate finance

Burrell added that the Princess was also carrying a CD Rom with details of over a million Northern Rock customers which mysteriously disappeared and have never been recovered.
