Australian DJs not questioned by police over death of Bristol nurse Jacintha Saldanha
The Australian DJs who made the hoax call to the private hospital where the Duchess of Cambridge was being cared for have not been questioned by police over the death of Bristol nurse Jacintha Saldanha, it has been reported.
Reports from Australia suggest that Mel Greig and Michael Christian, who posed as the Queen and Prince Charles in the prank call to King Edward VII Hospital which was answered by the Southmead mother, have not been interviewed by the Metropolitan Police about the matter.
According to Adelaide newspaper The Advertiser New South Wales Police confirmed the DJs have not been interviewed by Scotland Yard about the matter.
The 46-year-old nurse, who used to work at North Bristol NHS Trust, was found hanged at nurses accommodation in central London three days after she answered the hoax call. Mrs Saldanha did not give away confidential information about the duchess during the call but passed it through to another nurse who revealed information about the royal's condition after she was admitted due to illness related to her pregnancy.

Following her suicide, the DJs were taken off air indefinitely.
the Advertiser reported that New South Wales deputy police commissioner Nick Kaldas said British police had not asked for no more information regarding the DJs since the nurse's suicide.
"There was some initial contact after the death of Jacintha Saldanha but not a lot since and because of the passage of time we believe it is unlikely any charges will be laid," he said.
Metropolitan Police confirmed that the case files have been passed on to the Crown Prosecution Service.
