Outrage mounts against Australia radio prank

Major companies withdraw advertising after nurse who took prank call by radio station kills herself.

    Public outrage has been mounting in Australia at a radio station's prank call to the London hospital treating the Duchess of Cambridge.

    The nurse, Jacintha Saldanha, who took the call has since been found dead by police.

    Two major Australian companies are withdrawing advertising from the station, and the country's media watchdog is also investigating the issue.
