THE world's media were still camped out in Pretoria, South Africa, this morning waiting for 'Blade Runner' Oscar Pistorius to make his first appearance at Brooklyn police station, part of his bail conditions.

Pistorius was granted bail, set at 1m rand (£73,000), at his murder trial after a dramatic week of court appearances in which the defence and prosecution laid out details of how the paralympian killed his girlfriend, model and law graduate Reeva Steenkamp on Valentine's Day.

The paralympian is staying at his uncle Arnold's house in Waterkloof and his bail conditions require him to go to the police station twice a week until his trial the date of which will be set in June.

His brother Carl, who came to give his support to Oscar during the trial, was found to be facing charges of culpable homicide on Sunday (February 24) for a driving incident in which a motorcyclist died.

The magistrate said Pistorius must give up his passports and hand in any guns he might own, he is also not allowed to return to his home, where the killing of Steenkamp took place.
