Australian Federal Police and NSW police are evaluating a file, provided to them by the UKs Metropolitan Police, over the phone call made on December 4 by presenters Mel Greig and Michael Christian. They called Londons King Edward VII Hospital where the Duchess of Cambridge was being treated for a pregnancy-related illness, and pretended to be the Queen and Prince of Wales. The DJs were put through to the ward by nurse Jacintha Saldanha, who committed suicide soon after the hoax was widely publicised. British prosecutors have already said no legal action will be taken in the UK. But a NSW Police spokeswoman said yesterday that federal police would evalu ate the referral as per the AFPs usual process to determine if any commonwealth offences are identified and NSW police would look at it from a state offences point of view. The DJs employer, Austereo, wouldnt comment on the possibility of charges. Were not commenting at the moment and have nothing to add . . . were not making a statement, a spokeswoman said. The referral by British police comes as lawyers for Greig who has not returned to work revealed on Wednesday that she was now taking legal action against Austereo. Greigs lawyer, Steven Lewis of Slater & Gordon, said a general protections application has been filed with Fair Work Australia, alleging Southern Cross Austereo failed to maintain a safe workplace in relation to the hoax call incident. Relieved former Hawthorn star Shane Crawford finally arrives at the finish line in the Hay St Mall in Perth yesterday Picture: JUSTIN BENSON-COOPER Crawford finishes epic trek PERTH: Brownlow medallist Shane Crawford has completed a gruelling 3600km charity bike ride across the country, prompting calls for him to be dubbed Australian of the Year. Crawford began the epic fundraiser for Breast Cancer Network Australia (BCNA) on June 20 in Melbourne and completed it 22 days later in Perth yesterday. The 38-year-old former Hawthorn midfielder averaged 170km a day, riding through Mildura in Victoria, Ceduna in South Australia and Kalgoorlie in Western Australia before receiving a heros welcome in Perths Hay Street Mall. Done! he tweeted, thanking all for the support he had received on the journey. Within minutes of the Hall of Famer arriving, social media was abuzz with calls for him to be anointed Australian of the Year, with 43,000 likes for the idea on Facebook, while hundreds tweeted that he was an obvious choice. Crawford has supported the breast cancer cause several times before, including running from Adelaide to Melbourne in 11 days in 2010. A BCNA spokeswoman said donations for his latest effort were still flooding in, but so far more than $640,000 had been received.
