What's Making News This Morning In Perth: Tuesday, Feb 13

Two young boys  remain in a serious condition in hospital after they were hit by cars in separate incidents yesterday.

The first happened when an 11-year-old was struck on Kenmare Ave in Thornlie about 3.30pm and was rushed to hospital.

Then, about an hour later, a 4-year-old boy was on his scooter when he was struck on The Brigdeway in Canning Vale.

"We understand that he was hit while he was on a scooter," 9 News Perth journalist Alice Pooley reported.

"He was raced to Princess Margaret Hospital with facial grazes and broken bones.

"We understand that his mother was just nearby at the time and the driver of this car is now being questioned by police."

Lisa Scaffidi will front a State Administrative Tribunal hearing today where it will be determined whether she will be disqualified as Perth Lord Mayor.

Ms Scaffidi will give evidence on 19 breaches of the Local Government Act - the breaches related to undisclosed gifts and travel.

Her 18-month disqualification was thrown out last year after she successfully appealed 26 of the original 45 breaches, relating to undisclosed gifts and travel.

Four more WA men have been charged over a street brawl in Melbourne - which left a 30-year-old man with serious head injuries.

The men, aged 18 and 19, are accused of being in a fight involving about 20 people in the early hours of last Thursday morning.

Last week three WA men were charged over the assault.
