The nurse who apparently took her own life following the royal hoax call scandal was found hanged in her staff housing, it has been claimed.

Mother-of-two Jacintha Saldanha, 46, left a note for her family, it was revealed yesterday. 
She had not told her husband or children that she was involved in the incident, meaning the letter may provide their only clue to what prompted the respected nurse to take such a drastic and tragic step.

A post-mortem examination was held yesterday on the body of Mrs Saldanha, who was the first unwitting member of staff at the King Edward VII Hospital in London, where the Duchess of Cambridge was being treated for acute morning sickness, to take the call made by two Australian DJs pretending to be the Queen and Prince Charles.

She passed them on to a second nurse on Kate's ward, who was then duped into giving out details of her medical condition 
 Australian radio station cancels Christmas party and vows to donate half a million dollars to family of nurse who died after taking hoax call.

The results of the post-mortem examination are not yet known, and an inquest is due to be opened and adjourned tomorrow.
Family spokesman, Labour MP Keith Vaz, said yesterday Mrs Saldanha's family were demanding answers from the hospital about the circumstances that led to her death.

Although bosses at the hospital in Marylebone have said they will conduct internal inquiries, the nurse's family – husband Ben Barboza, 49, and children Junal, 17, and Lisha, 14 – 'want to know everything'.
