It is claimed that one of the pieces of evidence put before the court was a seven-page letter written by the parents in-law of another SAS operative, known only as 'Soldier N'.

The letter, which was allegedly sent to the commanding officer of the elite unit, is said to claim that Soldier N boasted that the SAS "was behind Princess Diana's death".

Danny Nightingale was found guilty of illegally possessing a gun and ammunition by a court martial board in July 2013.
