No Charges Over Royal Hoax Call

No charges will be brought over a prank call to a hospital about the Duchess of Cambridge, which was taken by a nurse who later took her own life, the Crown Prosecution Service has announced.

Australian DJs Mel Greig and Michael Christian made the hoax call to the King Edward VII's hospital in central London, posing as the Queen and Prince of Wales when Kate was being treated for a rare form of pregnancy sickness.

Nurse Jacintha Saldanha, who transferred them to a colleague, who then described Kate's condition in detail, was found hanged a few days after the incident, sparking a backlash against the 2Day FM DJs.

The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) announced on Friday 1st February that no charges will be brought over the hoax calls.
