The nurse at the centre of the Royal hoax criticised staff at the King Edward VII's Hospital in one of the apparent suicide notes that were found at the scene of her death, The Guardian has reported.

The newspaper quoted two separate sources who accounted for the three notes that yesterday's inquest said were recovered near to Jacintha Saldanha's body.

They said one concerned the hoax call by the Australian DJs, another outlined her funeral requests and the third "addresses her employers, the hospital, and contained criticism of staff there."

The hospital said it had offered Mrs Saldanha "full support" following the prank call.
