Memorial service for royal baby nurse today

A memorial service is due to be held for Jacintha Saldanha at St Teresa's Church, Bristol later on today.

Ms Saldanha lived and worked in London during the week, returning home to see her family in Bristol at weekends.

Tomorrow morning a mass will be held at London's Westminster Cathedral.

The mass will be offered "for the repose of the soul of Jacintha and her grieving family", a spokesman for Westminster Cathedral said.

"We would hope to hold a more formal memorial after the inquest has concluded."

The memorial service in Bristol is due to start at 6pm.
