Finally, 10 years after her tragic death the inquest has begun!
Lord Justice Scott Baker has issued a list of 20 likely issues to be considered during the hearing, which is likely to last six months.

From the site:

  • Whether a Fiat Uno or any other vehicle caused or contributed to the collision
  • Whether the actions of the Paparazzi caused or contributed to the cause of the collision
