I think you're right Geordie - there's more to this than meets the eye

Just seen on the news that the poor woman lived in Bristol but stayed in London when on duty so she was away from home, maybe that had some bearing on it.

I hope that the pranksters are reminded of what their stupid actions have resulted in every day for the rest of their lives.

Perhaps that is so, the thought had crossed my mind too, but this still does not excuse what has happened. Obviously there are a number of reason that someone would choose to take their life. This poor woman may have felt she had let so many people down and could not stand the shame which may just have been the last straw.

She only put the call through,,,,,,,she was not the one that gave out any details....I think there is more to this than her taking such an extreme measure as end her life......knowingly leaving 2 young children motherless...such a dark reaction to do.....

Has there been a post mortem yet, except here?

Not just here Island.....all the media outlets are either hinting or blatantly suggesting it was a suicide. x

**edit** i suggest the media have been given their private briefings by their *sources*.......Personally I think it's a rum deal that her name has even made it into print at this stage x

Agree Muffy I was surprised the poor woman was named so quickly by the police but her relatives had been informed and that is usually followed by the release of the name.

Can't help worrying though that she may have had relatives and friends further afield for whom this has come as a news report rather than personal notification

It is dreadful - wonder if the two Aussies will feel so chuffed now?

A family wrecked by the thoughtless behaviour of two irresponsable persons.

How horrifying for her to know what she did, but then to have it splashed on the internet and papers with nobody to saying sorry her, what the <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<++++ do people expect. She wasn´t a hardened newsperson she was just a hospital worker who was hounded for making a mistake

In fairness Uzzi..I only heard her actual name today.........

kay, She only put the call through,,,,,,,she was not the one that gave out any details?

She was a nurse not a switchboard operator and when such calls from relatives are put through by another nurse to the nurse looking after a patient the later would have expected the first nurse to qualify the callers ID before putting it through, So this lady would have thought it was her fault regardless

The above is a link (it may have to be cut and pasted) to the story in Australia

too much of this going on. Kyle Sandilands and others. Complete Pratts, all of them, and that's being polite

I'll be interested in what SueMaid says, she must, at least, know of that radio station if not heard it.
