Poster promoting Diana film placed just yards from crash site where Princess was killed

A poster promoting the film Diana has been positioned near to where the late Princess was killed in a car crash 16 years ago.

A poster for Diana, starring Naomi Watts, has been placed just outside the Pont de l'Alma in Paris this weekend, just across the road from the Flame of Liberty, which has become an unofficial memorial for those who travel to visit the site.

The film, which has been panned in the UK, went on general release in France over the weekend.

At the time of writing, no one from the film company marketing Diana in France had commented on the positioning of the poster.
