Kate royal hoax: Australian watchdog launches inquiry

The Australian media watchdog has launched a formal inquiry into the hoax call to the London hospital where the Duchess of Cambridge was being treated.

Nurse Jacintha Saldanha was found dead on Friday, three days after taking the call from an Australian radio station.

The Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) will focus on the 2DayFM licence holder and not directly on the presenters who made the call.

Duncan Kennedy reports from Sydney.
