Submarine: Rescue Effort, US offer of Help - Travis Burns Verdict – New Plymouth Murder – Digging Dirt On Dover

SUBMARINE – RESCUE EFFORT: The Russian Military have established contact with the crew of a Russian Nuclear submarine that has sunk in the Arctic. A naval spokesman says that the accident could have been a collision. Other reports say there was an explosion. A former nuclear submarine commander says that some sailors may have already died. The latest sinking is the sixth for a Russian submarine. The US has offered to help rescue the crew. So far the Russian’s have not asked for help however.

SUBMARINE - US OFFER OF HELP: The US says it has two submarine rescue vehicles it could use to rescue the crew but it would be hard. Tom Clancy says that the submarine may be running out of electricity. There have been dramatic submarine rescues in the past. The modern rescue vehicles were developed following the loss of a US sub in 1963.

TRAVIS BURNS (JOANNE MCCARTHY MURDER): A High Court Jury has found Travis Burns guilty of murdering Joanne McCarthy. Family members of the victim and accused cried at the verdict. Burns was found guilty of bashing McCarthy to death. No one knows why however. McCarthy was bashed to death in front of her two children.

NEW PLYMOUTH MURDER: A 25-year-old woman has been found dead in New Plymouth after a man admitted himself to hospital with gun-shot wounds. The man has been charged with murder and remanded for psychiatric assessment.

DIGGING DIRT: TV3 has obtained the tape of the man who says that Labour Whip Chris Carter rang him digging dirt on Dover Samuels. The tape is played. Carter says he wants to discuss Dover in a “non controversial way” and does appear to be seeking information. John Yellish who provided the tape says Carter is mistaken about the circumstances of the call. The PM says she takes will take the word of her Junior Whip over the word of a convicted murderer at any time. Jenny Shipley says the Carter tape proves her allegations while Helen Clark is accusing Shipley of planning to use the matter to justify herself to her party conference shortly. Meanwhile the PM hasn’t spoken to Dover yet. The word from the police is that they should have a statement on the final allegations about Dover on Thursday or Friday.
