The result of a post-mortem on royal hospital nurse who apparently killed herself will be released at the inquest into her death tomorrow, Scotland Yard said.

The examination to establish the cause of Jacintha Saldanha's death began yesterday and has concluded but its result will not be officially announced until the hearing at Westminster Coroner's Court on Thursday morning.

The death is not being treated as suspicious and the inquest is expected to be opened and adjourned as inquiries are continuing.
