Princes Plea For Crash Picture To Be Scrapped Rejected

LATEST: British royals PRINCES WILLIAM and HARRY's plea to not broadcast crash scene images of their late mother DIANA, PRINCESS OF WALES has been rejected by U.K. TV network Channel 4. Jamie Lowther-Pinkerton, a senior aide for the royal pair, wrote to the network to request graphic images of Diana's final hours be scrapped from the show, due to air tonight (06Jun07). Among the pictures contested is one of Diana slumped in the back seat of the Mercedes moments after the fatal 1997 collision, and another showing a French doctor attempting to fit an oxygen mask to her face. The letter, sent last Friday (01Jun07) by Lowther-Pinkerton, read, "If it were your or my mother dying in that tunnel, would we want the scene broadcast to the nation? Indeed, would the nation so want it?" However, Channel 4's director of content Kevin Lygo insists the programme will go out as planned. He says, "What you are asking us to do would create a dangerous precedent. "It would have a serious impact on the legitimate coverage of high-profile tragedies where there is responsible use of archive stills or footage."
