Post-mortem due on nurse

A post-mortem examination is due to be held today on the nurse who apparently took her own life after she was duped by a hoax call made to the hospital treating the Duchess of Cambridge.

Jacintha Saldanha died in a suspected suicide on Friday after she was fooled by two Australian radio hosts making a prank call to the King Edward VII's Hospital in London.

The hospital worker transferred the presenters, who were pretending to be the Queen and the Prince of Wales, to a colleague who described Kate's condition in detail.
