Royal phone-hoax death prompts cancellation of Australian radio show

(Continued)

SYDNEY —

New South Wales police have received a request for assistance from London's Metropolitan Police Service, Deputy Commissioner Nick Kaldas said on Sky News Sunday.

"It hasn't been indicated to us that an offense has occurred and they have not actually asked for anything yet," Kaldas said. "They've simply touched base, let us know of their interest and they will get back to us if they actually want something done."

Lord Glenarthur, chairman of King Edward VII hospital, wrote to the radio network describing the phone call as "truly appalling" and "extremely foolish," British Broadcasting Corp. said Dec. 8. He wrote to the network a day after Saldanha was discovered, having apparently killed herself, according to the BBC.

— With assistance from Kari Lundgren in London and Edward Johnson in Sydney.
