Reports indicate the two DJs who pulled a prank on the London hospital where Kate Middleton was staying have gone into hiding.

“We can’t find them anywhere in Sydney right now, they are in hiding we are told by a radio-station executive, fearful for their lives because of some of the comments they have seen online threatening them” said ABC correspondent Cecilia Vega.

There have been comments and Tweets sent to the station ranging from calls to have them fired, to calls to have them thrown in jail all the way to threats on their personal safety.

In a new development, there is word that British police have contacted Australian authorities about a possible criminal investigation into the phone call hoax.

Some have speculated that the crime committed could be based on the recording a phone call with private information without permission.
