Keith Vaz MP criticises radio boss' comments

MP Keith Vaz has criticised comments reportedly made by the chairman of the parent company of the radio station behind the royal baby hoax call.

Mr Vaz started helping the family of nurse Jacintha Saldanha from Bristol, who's death sparked a worldwide backlash against DJs Mr Christian and Ms Grieg. He said:

I was shocked to hear Max Moore-Wilton's comments about this tragic incident. This is an insult to the memory of a loving mother and wife.

The radio station has clearly not learnt the lessons from this incident.

Mr Moore-Wilton must apologise for his comments immediately.

An inquest into Ms Saldanha's death has been postponed twice, and a new date is yet to be set.
