The body of the nurse who killed herself three days after answering the hoax phone call to the Duchess of Cambridge's hospital, has arrived in India.

The funeral of Jacintha Saldanha, 46, will take place in India n the town of Shirva, Karnataka on the west coast of the country, reports the BBC.

It came as the Mail on Sunday reported the nurse blamed the two DJs behind the prank in one of her suicide notes. According to reports the letter expresses her "deep anger" at the Australian DJs.

A candlelit vigil for Jacintha Saldanha was held in Bangalore, India, on Thursday

The two DJs, Michael Christian and Mel Greig are in a "safe place" after receiving death threats.

Two other notes were found after her death, one dealing with her funeral arrangements and another criticising the hospital where she worked.

On Saturday a memorial service attended by her husband, Benedict Barboza, daughter Lisha, 14, and son Junal, 16, was held at Westminster Cathedral.

Outside after the service Lisha read a tribute from her and her brother saying: "We are shattered and there's an unfillable void in our lives.

"The house is an empty dwelling without your presence."

Benedict added: "Without your beautiful smile and sparkling personality, the house is an empty place to live.

"Nineteen years of togetherness with a strong bond of affection and understanding will be cherished forever in my life.

"Your loss is a very painful one and nobody can take that place in my life ever again. I love you and miss you forever."
