Tonya Harding's bodyguard says the skater knew of the plot to attack Nancy Kerrigan and at one point complained it was taking too long, AP reports from Portland.

Ms Harding's lawyer denied the allegations made by Shawn Eckardt in an interview in The Oregonian and attacked Mr Eckardt's credibility. He also said Ms Harding's former husband, Jeff Gillooly, offered a dollars 10,000 ( pounds 6,700) Figure Skating Association cheque as a bonus if the attack was carried out right away.
