Dramatic developments this morning into Queensland's Dr Death. at the royal commission joins us live from Bundaberg, Ten reporter Danielle Isdale to shut down the Morris Inquiry? and, Dani, lawyers are trying Yes, Frank. The entire commission

is on a knife-edge at the moment.

Weeks of public hearing, months of

hard work and millions of dollars

are in the balance. Commissioner

Tony Morris said he received

notices from two lawyers that they

intend to sue. They are making

applications to the Supreme Court

on the basis of bias. Whether the

commission can continue or not

under those circumstances is

unclear. What is clear is the very

upset patients of Dr Jayant Patel

have never been more distressed.

Where was the justice for us then?

When they were slicing me open like

an animal, where was my justice?

There's a lot of us people who are

suffering and continue to suffer

for the rest of their lives. People

have lost their lives, people have

lost their limbs. We did not ask to

be treated like animals going to

the slaughter. So on Thursday

morning, the commissioner will hear

from both parties who wish to stop

the commission. They'll decide at

that point whether to disqualify

himself or not, whether to abort

the inquiry or not. Until then,

it's evidence as usual. in Bundaberg. Ten reporter Danielle Isdale and business allies Steve Vizard's political have rallied around the entrepreneur. The former TV funny man information as a Telstra director, has admitted misusing confidential in limbo. putting his corporate career with many powerful friends He's a man is likely to need all of them and Steve Vizard over corporate law breaches. when he faces court later this month

REPORTER: Do you feel sorry for him? position he's in, obviously. I think it's a very difficult possible position, I think this will be the worst that is that it's yet to come before the court, the penalty involved. the court hasn't determined As a Telstra director, market-sensitive information he's accused of using of three software companies. to trade in the shares who is overseas on a family holiday, A spokesman says Mr Vizard, from the share deals - actually lost money to the tune of $335,000. out of pocket The court action could see him banned for several years from serving on any boards and fines of up to $600,000. But he's said to be grateful the matter has been brought to a head after two years of uncertainty. We need 10 Steve Vizards in the State to continue to propel the succeess of Victoria throughout the world. But the corporate high-flyer's future is up in the air. He's stood down as head of Victoria's Major Events Corporation and the Premier won't say if he'll have him back.

I am not in a position really to judge whether or not those matters are matters which will require him to be barred from serving on a public company or not. The Federal Court will hear

the Australian Securities and Investments Commission's case against Mr Vizard on July 21. Gareth Boreham, Ten News. A woman has been arrested after a high speed chase through Sydney. Police threw spikes onto the road to stop the allegedly stolen four-wheel drive after a pursuit covering some 50km. An 18-year-old will face court this morning, charged with stealing a motor vehicle, driving without a licence,

and driving in a manner dangerous to the public. A man will face court after an attack on a Sydney shop attendant. He was arrested with another suspect after he allegedly tried to rob a convenience store and stabbed a shop attendant in the back with a blood-filled syringe. Another worker at the shop activated the security doors,

trapping everyone inside until police arrived. Officers found a syringe dumped in a nearby rubbish bin,

and the injured shop attendant was taken to hospital for tests. A second man, who was arrested, has now been released. And police are searching for four suspects after two armed robberies on the Gold coast overnight. Three men burst into a 7-Eleven store at Burleigh Heads, threatening the shop assistant with an axe. The robbers removed the video surveillance tape

before escaping with a large sum of money. A Labrador service station was also held up. A man threatened the attendant with a 30cm knife before stealing cigarettes. Big names are being rolled out in a last-minute pitch by London to win the 2012 Olympics. But New York is fighting back, using an Australian. Tonight, London's bid seen playing their trump card, unleashing the most famous footballer in the world into the Olympic debate - an East End boy now backing an East End games. It's gonna inspire children - young children. To give our children the chance to see an Olympics in our own country is a special thing so that's why I believe that we should get it. There was one other rather famous name backing London today - the Princess Royal, giving praise to those behind the bid.

It'd be hugely disappointing for them if, in fact, we didn't win it. But the busiest man in Singapore toady was probably the PM, seeping in and out of meetings, singing London's praises. All these cities are big, powerful cities with good bids. It's just that I think that London offers something distinctive and better. London isn't the only city drafting in reinforcements. Australia's greatest modern Olympian has come to help New York - a bid that thrives on celebrity endorsement. If you believe in it, if you're passionate about it, you're here for the bid. You're not here for your own game. The media may try and create this kind of circus around who's who from each bid but I'm just one of the people that's representing New York. I think that there's still quite a number a voting members who haven't finally decided where they'll place their vote. But tonight, London was parading more of its own sporting celebrities.

Glamour won't guarantee the capital victory, but it won't do any harm either. Still to come - Schapelle Corby's defence team banks on new witnesses to get the convicted drug smuggler out of jail.

Plus - taking the plunge with sharks. I accept you, Gayle, as my partner, as my friend, as my wife. And Charles and Camilla bring out the big guns.

Schapelle Corby is banking on new witnesses to win her freedom. Her defence team has been given the go-ahead to present new evidence to fight her 20-year jail sentence for taking 4kg of marijuana into Bali. Up to new 30 witnesses could be heard, including Australian airport staff. The government is considering covering the cost of their travel bills or using video conferencing. We would be prepared to assist in relation to those matters but the Australian Government can't compel people to appear in a trial offshore. Corby's lawyers are hoping the hearing will start next month but admit they are unlikely to find a witness who will claim ownership of the drugs found in the Gold Coast woman's boogie board bag. A shocking discovery in a hotel pool in the US. For two hours, guests unknowingly swam around the body of a 7-year-old boy while police were out searching for the child. Tad Williams's uncle was supposed to be watching him, last night finding out the boy was dead. He last saw the 7-year-old racing his cousin to the hotel pool yesterday. The cousin got down to the pool, did not see him, so they began a search. For more than two hours, police and guests scoured every corner of the hotel. But it was this tourist, swimming in goggles, who found Tad at the bottom of the pool. There were probably 30 people in the pool area. We talked to everyone. People were even swimming in the pool, and unfortunately he was in the deep end of the pool,

probably in a corner area. Police have launched an investigation into how the search was bungled so badly, leaving dozens of hotel patrons to swim around the dead child for two hours. Horrified guests are being counselled. How can nobody see him at the bottom of the pool? Vanessa Cartigena was by the pool the entire time. We were all looking, you know, trying to figure out how could that happen, how could everybody be swimming in the pool and not notice?

In the United States, Rahni Sadler, Ten News. Prince Harry has been officially cleared of cheating over college art exams.

The Prince was accused of getting help with these paintings at Eton College. Art teacher Sarah Forsyth made the allegations at an unfair dismissal hearing. Today, the teacher won her case, but at the same time, the tribunal announced the Prince had been cleared of any wrong-doing. Harry needed the pass mark to become an army officer. Bringing out the big guns - Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall put an anti-aircraft gun through its paces as part of a living history display, marking 60 years since the end of World War II.
