PARIS, Feb 6 (AFP) - Michael Burgess, the British coroner looking into the deaths of Princess Diana and Dodi Al Fayed in August 1997, held a two-hour meeting Friday at the justice ministry in Paris, officials said.

 The ministry refused to confirm reports that Burgess, who is expected to stay in Paris several days, would visit the scene of the car-crash in an underpass by the river Seine where the pair died.

A French magistrate concluded that the crash was caused by excessive speed and the high levels of alcohol and prescription drugs found in the blood of driver Henri Paul, who also died.

Burgess, who opened his investigations on January 6, hopes to review the 6,000-page dossier drawn up by the magistrate.
