Greig has launched an attack on those people who bullied her after the infamous call which was linked to a nurse's suicide.

The 32-year-old has told the BBC she faced a huge backlash and the trolling and death threats were disgusting.

She said bullets with her name on it were sent to police stations and she was in lockdown for months.

Greig apologised for the hoax after the inquest into the nurse's death, which she said she would always feel partly responsible for.
