Hoax nurse's family still want answers
THE family of Bristol nurse Jacintha Saldanha are waiting for answers from hospital bosses to 40 questions they asked following her death.
Ms Saldanha was found hanged after taking a hoax phone call about the Duchess of Cambridge last month. As well as waiting to hear from hospital bosses her husband and two children are also waiting to hear back from radio show bosses in Australia.
Ms Saldanha, right, was duped by a DJ impersonating the Queen in an attempt to reach the Duchess, who was being treated for morning sickness.
The 46-year-old, from Southmead, was found dead in her nurses' quarters three days after she transferred the call to a colleague at London's King Edward VII's Hospital who then described Kate's condition in detail.

It has now been confirmed that the 40 questions prepared by her grieving family looking for answers into Ms Saldanha's death will only be answered following an internal inquiry, led by hospital chairman Lord Glenarthur.
Labour MP Keith Vaz, who has supported Ms Saldanha's family since the death, said: "I welcome the fact that the hospital is conducting an internal inquiry, although I am disappointed that it will take such a long time for the results to be made available to the family.
"I feel that it would have been in the family's best interest that there should have been an independent element of the inquiry. Despite the fact that the family have sent a list of 40 questions to the hospital they still seem unwilling to answer them."
