Snapshot of Stories

Scotland Yard has been in touch with Australian police over the death of a nurse from the hospital where the Duchess of Cambridge was being treated for morning sickness.  Jacintha Saldanha, 46, died on Friday, days after she answered a prank phone call from Australian DJs pretending to be the Queen and Prince Charles.  An inquest into the apparent suicide is due to be opened this week.  The firm which owns the radio station is holding an emergency board meeting.  Southern Cross Austereo, owner of 2Day FM, has suspended all advertising on the station until Monday, while DJs Mel Greig and Michael Christian are on indefinite leave.  The pair are said to be in a fragile condition and receiving “intense counselling”, because of the hostile reaction to their prank.  Regarding official contact, a spokesman for the Metropolitan Police said: “Officers have been in contact with Australian authorities.”  In certain circumstances, including when a death is sudden or unexpected, police report deaths to a coroner and can be involved in investigating the circumstances.

One in six UK charities questioned for a survey say they fear they may have to close in 2013 due to public spending cuts and falling donations, the Charities Aid Foundation has said.  The poll of 252 senior charity workers also found just under half of their organisations have been forced to dip into reserves to stay afloat.  Over a third have said they may be forced to cut services or jobs.   The Cabinet Office said the charity sector “cannot be immune from cuts”.  There are more than 160,000 charities in the UK.  Almost all of the 252 charities questioned for the CAF said generating more income was going to be their greatest challenge in the coming year.  The survey was completed online by charities of differing sizes by polling group Research Now.  Some 40% of those questioned worry that they will be forced to close if the economic situation does not improve.  A quarter have already been forced to cut frontline services and staff cuts.  About 80% believe that the economic situation is the greatest threat to UK charities.  Nearly three-quarters believe that charities are unable to fulfil their goals because of reductions in donations or government funding
