Hoax call nurse inquest adjourned until September

The inquest of a nurse who took a prank call about the Duchess of Cambridge from two Australian DJs will now take place in September.

Jacintha Saldanha was found dead in nurses' quarters three days after she answered the call at central London's King Edward VII's Hospital, where Kate was being treated for severe morning sickness in December.

Ms Saldanha answered the phone and put the pair through to a colleague who gave details of the Duchess's condition.

The inquest was due to take place in London this week, but a spokeswoman from Westminster Coroner's Court said it has been adjourned until September 12 and 13.
