Hoax nurse family condemn suicide note publication

The family of a nurse who took a prank call at the hospital where the Duchess of Cambridge was being treated have condemned the publication of one of her suicide notes.

Speaking on behalf of Jacintha Saldanha's family, MP Keith Vaz said:

The family of Jacintha Saldanha welcome the latest development concerning the application by the Australian DJ Mel Greig to appear before the inquest.

This will now allow the coroner to explore the role of the DJs in Jacintha's tragic death.

The family feel this will give them the opportunity to ensure that all relevant parties are before the inquest, including the hospital, the DJs and the radio station.

They are, however, distressed at the publication of the content of one of the suicide notes which, of course, was private.

They have appointed John Cooper QC to represent them at the inquest.
