Newspapers cleared entire editions to report on the road accident which claimed Diana's life and acres of newsprint were devoted to picture specials, tributes, memories of her life and how the nation came to a standstill in the days following the tragedy.
It was no different in South Yorkshire with page after page of our newspapers carrying photos, details of the funeral service and endless tributes from local people of all ages.
Diana's face was present on virtually every page, interspersed with snippets from her life - her childhood beginnings, her fairytale romance and wedding to Prince Charles, the very public collapse of that marriage amid rumors of infidelity as well as the horrific circumstances of her death in the early hours of August 31, 1997 in a road tunnel in Paris.
