Kate Middleton - Scotland Yard In Contact With Australian Police Over Kate Middleton Hoax Call

Scotland Yard have reportedly gotten in touch with Australian policing officials in relation to the hoax call made by a pair of Australian DJs in order to gain information into the health of the Duchess of Cambridge Kate Middleton, who was undergoing treatment for severe morning sickness at the time.

The New South Wales Police have been contacted by the Met over the prank call, which in turn led to the death of nurse Jacintha Saldanha, who answered the prank call, by apparent suicide. Today, Deputy Commissioner Nick Kaldas of the New South Wales Police made an official statement to the press saying, "The London Metropolitan Police may wish to speak to the people involved in the matter from 2day FM but we haven't been asked to do anything yet. We've certainly opened up the lines of communication and obviously we're happy to assist."

The incident occurred when the DJs for 2day Radio called the hospital where Kate was receiving treatment, pretending to be Queen Elizabeth II and her husband The Duke of Edinburgh Prince Phillip. The two received some information from Saldanha before she passed them on to one of her superiors. The nurse was found dead near the hospital on Friday (Dec 7) morning.

The DJs, Mel Greig and Michael Christian, have remained out of the public eye since the tragedy unfolded and are said to be undergoing psychological treatment to deal with the trauma and have since expressed their remorse. In Australia, the press have condemned the act, but called for the DJs not to be vilified as they acted without malice and never intended to cause anyone harm.
