LONDON // A coroner's officer says the nurse who took a hoax call about the Duchess of Cambridge was found hanging by the neck from a scarf on a wardrobe door in her room.

A police officer told a coroner's inquest today that three notes were found in the room. There were no suspicious circumstances.
