Hoax radio station to donate profits to dead nurse's family

11 December 2012

The Australian radio station behind the hoax call to the London hospital where Prince William’s pregnant wife Kate was being cared for has said it will donate all of its advertising revenue until the end of the year.

The money will go into a fund for the family of the nurse who died days after putting the call through from the DJs pretending to be the Queen.

The Sydney radio station 2DayFM has suspended DJs Mel Grief and Michael Christian.

In London, the family of Jacintha Saldhana went to the Houses of Parliament to meet with MP Keith Vaz.

Prime Minister David Cameron described the death of the nurse, who was from India but had lived in England for 15 years, as “an absolute tragedy”.

A post-mortem is due to take place on Tuesday.
