Kate hoax nurse: Inquest 'disturbing' for family, says Vaz

A nurse fooled by a hoax call to the London hospital treating the Duchess of Cambridge was later found hanged, an inquest has heard.

Jacintha Saldanha was found dead in her nurses' quarters on Friday, three days after the call from Australian radio presenters pretending to be the Queen and Prince Charles.

There were also injuries to her wrist, Westminster Coroner's Court heard.

The BBC's Ben Ando said no members of the Saldanha family were in court for the hearing, but Labour MP Keith Vaz attended on their behalf.

"Events like today are very, very disturbing and worrying for them," said Mr Vaz.
