Royal hoax nurse's family still waiting for answers
The family of Jacintha Saldanha, the Bristol nurse who was found hanged following a hoax call about the Duchess of Cambridge, have yet to receive answers from bosses at London's King Edward VII's Hospital about her death.
Labour MP Keith Vaz, who has supported the family, said, "Despite the fact that the family have sent a list of 40 questions to the hospital they still seem unwilling to answer them".
Ms Saldanha's husband and her two children are also waiting to hear from bosses of the Australian radio show at the centre of the hoax.
Two Australian DJs have given their first interview following the hoax call they made to the London hospital looking after the Duchess of Cambridge. A nurse from Bristol who answered the call was found dead at an address in London on Friday.
