Australia police contacted by Kate hoax officers in UK


Scotland Yard has been in touch with Australian police over the death of a nurse from the hospital where the Duchess of Cambridge was being treated for morning sickness.

Jacintha Saldanha, 46, died on Friday, days after she answered a prank phone call from Australian DJs pretending to be the Queen and Prince Charles.

An inquest into the apparent suicide is due to be opened this week.

New South Wales police deputy commissioner Nick Kaldas said they would offer any assistance requested by the Metropolitan Police.
