I'm getting from members In fact, the feedback is being misled is that either the Minister is misleading the community. or she herself a range of other issues They've put to us to sit down with the HSU and we are more than happy as we have done for some time they've put to us. to address those issues

Enry so the fight is on and who

knows where it will end? as they fight to be compensated for high fuel costs. Truck drivers are warning they'll hold further go-slow convoys as they fight to be compensated for high fuel costs. Today's moving road block went despite claims petrol prices should start falling soon. The horn blast of discontent. On the Hume Highway this morning dozens of truckies hit the brakes, frustrated by increased fuel costs. At 60km/h they blocked one lane from Sutton Forest to Casula.

Owner-drivers say they're paying thousands more for petrol every week, but are not being compensated by the major supermarkets.

You're working longer hours, even though you know it's illegal, and you're basically not paying yourself a wage. They've apologised for inconveniencing other drivers, but say their safety is at risk. We are cutting corners in respect of maintenance, and the vehicles end up becoming defective. Both Coles and Woolworths claim they do pay fuel surcharges, but drivers say long-term contracts mean those levies are out of date. The truckies and other motorists should be getting some relief. The world crude oil price has dropped US$17 a barrel in just over a week. But today the pump price changed little, an average of $1.56 per litre.

The NRA mesas we are still being

ripped off by 10 per litre. They

paying could be as low as $1.20. If

we were getting all and $90 a

It's claimed the 60-year-old drove into a fellow truckie, then pinned him to his rig during an argument at traffic lights in Frenchs Forest last month.

It left the other driver needing life-saving surgery. Passaris has pleaded not guilty to all charges. He'll be back in court in August. A handcuffed Peter Lloyd is in a Singapore court waiting to hear whether he can be released from prison.

Ten's Eddy Meyer is following the case of the ABC journalist who faces a drug trafficking charge. Peter Lloyd's lawyers have been working frantically since Monday trying to meet the strict bail conditions and have him released, obviously without much luck so far. We do understand that the money, the $45,000 bail, has been gathered and a Singaporean national charged with guaranteeing that bail came to the court yesterday, but wasn't able to fulfil all the conditions and so he couldn't be released. Now a judge will have to determine whether enough of the conditions have been met

which would allow him to be released this afternoon

or, possibly, if not this afternoon, then tomorrow morning or not at all. His next court appearance is on Friday. Now, Stephen Smith, the Foreign Minister, is in Singapore for ASEAN talks. He says that he's satisfied

with the medical treatment he's been receiving for his eye condition and with the consular access he's been given. And I've also satisfied myself, in discussions with Australian officials, that everything we can do for Mr Lloyd is being done. We now simply await the normal judicial and legal processes to continue. Mr Smith also indicated that Peter's family is keen to travel to Singapore. He says that consular assistance is being provided both in Australia and here in Singapore to make sure that happens smoothly. Back to you in the studio.

We have a word that Peter Lloyd has

been released on bail.

Residents are furious at plans to open a tattoo parlour and sex shop right near a school and a church. Locals say they weren't told about the plan.

Now it's too late to object. John Cross and Craig Buddle are businessmen who want to open a tattoo parlour and an adult shop at North Narrabeen. Their plans have upset some residents of the beachside suburb who are worried it will be bad for the area. We do sympathise with them and we're not out to cause trouble. It's interesting to know what people think about the shop. It's just another business that we're expanding into. The adult clothing is simply that - adult clothing. I don't think Narrabeen needs it. One business owner collected signatures opposing the development, but did not want to speak on camera to voice his objection. Others support the new shops, but hope it won't attract motorcycle gangs. I don't think there's going to be bikies lined up and down the front which will scare the community away and it's like any tattoo shop - it's very discreet. While John Cross and Craig Buddle have collected signatures of support from residents, some are worried Council hasn't properly consulted the community. Today the applications for objections actually closed and the local community don't know about it. Residents and business owners we spoke to today were concerned that what starts out as an adult store could later be developed into a brothel. But the business owners today offered this guarantee... Under no circumstances would we open a brothel - under no circumstances. Pittwater Council would not agree to an interview today because it's still considering the application.

Evan Batten, Ten News. Swimming legend Dawn Fraser has visited a World Youth Day pilgrim who was savagely attacked on a street named after her. Viliamu Tuialii is recovering in hospital from a broken jaw and teeth. The 25-year-old Samoan was attacked and robbed by a gang outside a pub at Olympic Park on Saturday morning. How sorry that I am that it happened in my country. After a blessing from Bishop Anthony Fisher, Viliamu was handed a new backpack and mobile phone and rosary beads blessed by Pope Benedict. His attackers have not been found. Scientists have discovered a breakthrough treatment for prostate cancer which early tests show can prolong the life expectancy of the terminally ill. The new drug not only stops the cancer spreading, it actually shrinks the tumour. with prostate cancer 19,000 men are diagnosed in Australia each year. It kills 3,000 of them. But now there's new hope, thanks to a revolutionary drug being trialled in Britain. It's given me 14 months of near-normal life. to get on and do some things. It's given me the ability The drug, abiraterone, works by interfering with the production of hormones that feed the tumours, including those released by the tumour itself, doubling life expectancy for terminally-ill patients. They feel better, their pain goes away, they stop their-pain killers, their cancers shrink on scans. Their bones even heal from the cancer. Trials have involved only 21 patients so far and side effects include high blood pressure. It'll be good news for Australian prostate cancer patients, down the track. although it's still a few years It comes as researchers have hailed the success of the national cervical cancer vaccination scheme, which has already immunised more than 1.5 million Australian girls and young women. The Cancer Council expects the number of new human papillomavirus infections to halve in the next two years and be nearly wiped out by 2050. The first step is to eradicate some of the viruses that are causing the disease and that will protect these girls throughout their life. Regular Pap smears, though, are still recommended for women aged over 18. Belinda Heggen, Ten News. Parents are being urged to toddler-proof their homes after a spike in hospital admissions.
