The Australian radio station responsible for a hoax call which led to the suicide of a nurse caring for the Duchess of Cambridge is to present evidence at an inquest this week showing multiple phone records to the hospital before the prank was broadcast, according to British newspaper reports.
2DayFM will present phone records which it says prove four calls were made to the King Edward VII Hospital in London, after the initial call, The Telegraph reports. The hospital has previously said it has no record of the calls being made.
The inquest may speculate that nurse Jacintha Saldanha answered the calls, but did not tell anyone about them. Mrs Saldanha's suicide note said the DJs responsible for the hoax, Mel Greig and Michael Christian, should pay her mortgage.
The radio station behind a prank call to the hospital where the Duchess of Cambridge was being treated is trying to stop an investigation by Australia’s media watchdog. The Times (£) reports that Sydney broadcaster 2DayFM has filed for an order which could block it.
Nurse Jacintha Saldanha was found dead in her nurses' quarters three days after the hoax call in December. She put the call through to a colleague who discussed the Duchess's condition with two radio presenters, believing they were the Queen and Prince Charles.
2DayFM broadcaster Michael Christian, who along with fellow Australian DJ Mel Grieg were being investigated by Scotland Yard following the death of nurse Jacintha Saldanha, has returned to work.
The DJ went on air today as a presenter of Melbourne radio station Fox FM, where he was also working at the time of the incident.
The pair made the hoax call to the King Edward VII's hospital in central London posing as the Queen and Prince of Wales when Kate was being treated for a rare form of pregnancy sickness.
Nurse Jacintha Saldanha, who transferred them to a colleague, who then described Kate's condition in detail, was found hanged a few days after the incident.
Sydney's 2DayFM radio station announced a new schedule that does not include their 'Hot 30' programme, which has been off air since December. Its presenters, Mel Greig and Michael Christian, are not involved with the show's replacement 'The Bump'.
Rhys Holleran, chief executive of Southern Cross Austereo, is quoted as saying: "We look forward to Mel and MC returning to work when the time is right, in roles that make full use of their talents – we will discuss future roles with them when they are ready."
The pair may face criminal charges over the incident.
Two Australian radio hosts who made a prank call to the London hospital where the Duchess of Cambridge was being treated are unlikely to face charges, according to Australian police.
"We're happy to assist but they're not asking for anything and we don't anticipate they're going to be asking for anything."
Earlier this month, the two presenters called the hospital impersonating the Queen and Prince Charles. A nurse, who later committed suicide, put their call through to the ward and confidential information about the Duchess' condition was given.
Keith Vaz has asked the owners of the Australian 2DayFM radio station how it arrived at a £320,000 memorial fund donation figure and why it thinks it has adequately dealt with what happened.

The two presenters at the centre of the royal hoax are poised to break their silence and go on television in the next 24 hours, according to ITV News international correspondent John Irvine.

A spokeswoman for Southern Cross Austereo, 2DayFM's parent company, said the two presenters at the centre of the royal hoax have "expressed a desire to speak".
She said: "They have expressed a desire to speak. We haven't ascertained when they're ready for that and how we're going to organise that, but they certainly want to."
