Duchess hoax: Australian presenters 'gutted and heartbroken'

The Australian radio hosts at the centre of the royal hospital hoax say they are "gutted and heartbroken' over the death of nurse Jacintha Saldanha.

Speaking on Australian television Mel Greig said, "My first question was, was she a mother".

"It's a tragic turn of events...and for the part we played we are incredibly sorry." Michael Christian went on to say.

Nurse Jacintha Saldanha was found dead three days after putting through a call that gathered details of the pregnant Duchess of Cambridge's condition.
