GISBORNE INQUIRY: One of the women who first gave evidence to the Gisborne Cervical Cancer Inquiry at it’s start three months ago has since died. Her mourners made an emotional tribute to her today.

HIT AND RUN ADMITS: The man who drove the vehicle that knocked two boys off a bridge in Wanganui, killing them, has admitted his act.

TODD ALLEGATIONS: A British tabloid is keeping the pressure on Kiwi equestrian Mark Todd. It has published a photo claiming it shows him using cocaine. However the Olympic authorities say the new information changes nothing and Todd will still be able to go to the Sydney 2000 Olympics.
