Paul Mullins, Ten News. A small town united in grief, struggling to cope with the loss of four teenage friends in a car crash.

Police are yet to speak to the 17-year-old P-plater who was behind the wheel, but the families of those killed say it was a tragic accident and no-one is to blame. The tragedy has hit hard. Ann and Mark New lost their son, 16-year-old Corey, and three of his friends -

Mitchell Eveleigh, Bryce Wells, aged 17, and 16-year-old Paul Morris. All killed near Byron Bay when the car they were travelling in crashed down an embankment. Only the 17-year-old driver survived. We really want to ask people to support the driver because his heart will be as heavy as ours. Parents say the victims were responsible teenagers with everything to live for. He wasn't a son he was a mate. More than anything he was a top kid. Corey played in a band with close friend Mitchell Eveleigh, a guitarist who wanted to study law. Mitchell's parents devastated over his death. They were just wonderful kids. They were talented kids, they all had different talents and they really were respected among the kids here. We've had the kids here this morning, their mates,

It's not just the families who are shocked and grieving, the whole community of Lismore is reeling from this tragedy. The loss felt most acutely at the high school the boys attended. They were the cream of our students but typical of all our students they were just great kids. Floral tributes to the victims have been placed outside the school today. The families are now planning separate funerals

to farewell their sons and they've called on all young drivers to learn from this tragedy and slow down. John Hill, Ten News. The tragedy has sparked renewed calls for a curfew

and better training programs for young drivers. But the State Government has already ruled out raising the minimum age for P-platers to 18. 22-year-old Scott Williams walking home today after losing his licence,

caught doing 70km over the limit. The P-plate driver on a drunken joy-ride along the M4. He managed to escape alive. But so many others don't. 26 P-platers have been killed on NSW roads so far this year. The community wants action to prevent these senseless tragedies. The Government can't be behind the wheel of every car being driven by young drivers. One of the main criticisms of the current system is that P-platers are let loose on the roads without enough experience. It's absolutely vital at this point that we look at advanced driving courses for people before they get their P-plates. There are also calls for the introduction of night curfews - as enforced in Queensland -

restricting the number of passengers P-plate drivers can carry after 11:00pm. But teenage drivers say it wouldn't be fair to deny them of that basic right. That's a lot of the reason young people get their Ps is so they can drive a whole group of people to parties, and that sort of thing, so that would be difficult. What if you have a bar job, or what if you have to pick up your sister or you find one your friends is in danger? The Government's ruled out raising the minimum age for new drivers to 18 but is considering improved training programmes. We are looking at extending the number of hours required for L-plate drivers and adding a night-time driving requirement of around 15 hours, which would be a first for Australia. Ebbeny Faranda, Ten News. Further proof emerged that Australia's greatest racehorse, Phar Lap, died from arsenic poisoning. But the mystery about who administered the fatal dose

is far from solved. New light has been shed on the mysterious death of Phar Lap, quite literally. 74 years after the champion died of suspected poisoning, intense beams from a synchrotron have revealed arsonic was present in hairs taken from Big Red's hide. We found two sources. One, we believe, from the taxidermy process in preserving him. The other one, we believe - and the results are consistent - with him consuming arsenic just prior to his death. It's the first time the museum has allowed anyone to take a sample from the champion racehorse. We don't give away samples of Phar Lap unless it can be clearly demonstrated there would be some benefit in explaining Phar Lap's history. History - Roy Higgins, a close friend of Phar Lap's strapper, Tommy Woodcock, says it was already known. Phar Lap was fed Fowler's solution which contained arsenic.

I could have told you that. Tommy could have told you that 100 years ago. Tommy said he fed all of his horses Fowler's solution because it helped their appetite and made their coats shine and glow. Mr Higgins says the big mystery remains was Phar Lap deliberately poisoned or was his death simply the result of a build-up of arsenic in his system? Probably all we want to know is

was he given another double dose or not? If the great man himself, Tommy Woodcock, was alive today, I think he'd be having a bit of a giggle. Kellie Morgan, Ten News. A look at what's ahead in sport with Tim Webster and the Aussies could have an ace up their sleeves for the Ashes? Yes, Mitchell Johnson's fast bowling efforts in India are signalling greater things. We'll hear from him. Also, sightseeing for one Aussie star. Andrew Symonds' slow trip in Jaipur. And jubilation for the Aussie woman who won the world's toughest race in Hawaii. Also the multimillion-dollar deal for rugby league's hottest teenager. Also tonight, the train line problem that almost derailed some HSC exams. And the author of a new book on Alan Jones defends his controversial claims about the star's sexuality.

(Sneezes) WOMAN: It's true what they say,

See what happens when someone acts fast with Telfast?

This program is captioned live. Added stress today for thousands of students sitting the HSC, thanks to chronic train problems. Rail staff were forced to drive some students to school to ensure they didn't miss their exams. Even before they sat down to their English exam

thousands of students were put through another test - how to get to school when the train lines were shut. Faulty power cables were brought down on the Illawarra line, suspending all services between Sutherland and Hurstville. While buses were brought in to get most commuters around the trouble spot, authorities went to extraordinary lengths to help students get to their exam on time. We also finished up making special transport arrangements for 22 HSC students to minimise their stress. That included CityRail staff personally driving some students to school. Still, many missed the start of their exam, disrupting other students. They started rushing in. Then the examiners had to stop the whole thing and wait for the guys to sit down and then we started. I apologise to all our customers, including HSC students,

who were affected by those delays this morning. The Board of Studies says no students should have been disadvantaged by the delays. They were given extra time to complete their papers if they ran late. CityRail is now investigating why the power lines came undone when they were only installed two weeks ago. Evan Batten, Ten News. Natasha Stott Despoja's retirement has sent shockwaves through the Democrats.

A leading election expert saying she should quit now, to give her colleagues a slim chance of hanging on in the Senate.

The Democrats Leader has no illusions, Natasha Stott Despoja not contesting next year's election will cost the party. We will miss Natasha. She is an important member of our team and she is very popular and she has done fantastic work. The retiring Senator herself acknowledges

the party will have an uphill battle. It's going to be a tough election, I have never under-estimated that, for the Democrats at the next federal election. Election analyst Malcolm Mackerras says the Democrats are sunk. Natasha Stott Despoja is simply a rat deserting a sinking ship. And he says her West Australian colleague Andrew Murray is no better. If they had any decency, what they would do is resign their seats immediately.

At least, he says, this would give the party the chance of replacing them with new senators who would face the voters as incumbents. Both retiring senators have 18 months left in Parliament.

Natasha Stott Despoja says she still has important work to do while Andrew Murray says he has a contract with voters to serve out his term. Whatever happens,

the major parties are marching to the same emphatic beat.

They were a response to a particular historical time. That time has passed and they have passed. Her going will leave a hole.

The Democrats are going to struggle, I think they will struggle without her. The Nationals' Barnaby Joyce says South Australia could now send someone to Canberra just like him. To be a real check on power you have to have the willingness to cross the floor. Paul Bongiorno, Ten News.

Today, mum and dad investors got the chance to buy into T3, Telstra's third retail share sale. Small investors are being offered bonus share offers I think for Telstra, if you are taking it as part of T3 you've got to consider it as part of a longer term investment strategy. The retail share offer will close on November 9. Going to mechanics might never be the same. The NRMA is setting up its first car service centre, prompting fears it could drive suburban mechanics out of business. This is the site of the first ever NRMA mechanical service centre. Right in the heart of a business district, it's aimed at customers who want to do the shopping while their car is serviced and repaired within an hour or two. It has mechanics feeling very nervous. We think it's absolutely disastrous. Disastrous not only for the motor trades but also disastrous for the consumer. The MTA claims it will leave motorists with a lower quality service by inexperienced mechanics. More often than not these centres are sausage factories just in one door and out the other. Liverpool mechanics fear the pilot centre will put them out of business.

A lot of customers will probably think, NRMA, big company, and give them a go which means the little workshops will then miss out. Small workshops fear a price war. Well, it's a cut-throat game as it is and if they're gonna start pushing prices down, to compete against them, we're gonna have to too but it depends how long we can keep cutting prices that low. If this centre here in Liverpool is successful,

the NRMA will look to expand into more mechanic workshops across the State next year. But some are optimistic their customers will stick with a mechanic they've grown to trust. We offer service, personal service, that's what we offer. The Liverpool centre is set to open within months. James Boyce, Ten News.

Conservation groups have condemned Iceland

for breaching a global ban on commercial whaling. A large endangered fin whale, harpooned in the North Atlantic yesterday, was hauled ashore and slaughtered. Local people turned out to watch as workers hosed down the animal and butchered it. Iceland declared last week it was issuing licences to hunt about 40 fin and minke whales in the coming year.

A missing person's case of a very different kind in America. A man suffering amnesia has gone on national television to find out who he is. For five weeks, this man has only been known as patient Alpha 74, or Al for short. He was diagnosed with amnesia after waking up on a footpath in Denver with just $8 in his pocket and a cracking headache. I just remember picking myself up off the ground and just realising I didn't know who I was or where I was. He tried truth serum and hypnosis but nothing worked. I feel totally lost. I feel totally alone. Very depressed, very anxious about everything. The only name he could remember was Penny. I don't know, it is hard to explain. Then the name made sense - Denver police announcing

his distraught fiancee had seen him on TV. And her name? Penny. Had it not been for the media who knows how this story might have ended. It turns out Al's real name is Jeff Ingram, a Washington State man who turned 40 just three days ago. He'd left home last month to visit family in Canada but vanished. It's probably the most horrifying thing anybody can go through. While he now knows his identity,

whether he'll get his memory back remains a mystery. In the United States, Leisa Goddard-Roles, Ten News. The father of the African baby Madonna is trying to adopt now says he didn't know the child would be taken away for good. Yohane Banda says he didn't understand the meaning of adoption when he signed papers last week. There was no arrangement that she was going to have David as her own forever, no.

It was supposed to be just like when he was at the orphanage, that he would be raised and educated and thereafter he would come back to the family. But he says he's still happy Madonna has rescued his son from a life of poverty and disease. A warning from doctors not to overdo allergy medication. Some hayfever sufferers are taking tablets in the middle of the night to cope.

Daphne Crowhurst has been at the mercy of hayfever for three decades. But the past two months have been her most painful yet. In my memory, it's the worst season by a long way. You know, I've never taken so many drugs in a day to try and control it, it's never been this bad. The early start to a tough hayfever season

is making life a struggle for sufferers. Many are resorting to extreme measures. Because of the severity of the hayfever this year, it's more likely that people will be experimenting with higher doses. Some tablets can be taken every four hours. For Daphne, that's not enough. After just two hours, she's again clogged up and finding it hard to function and reaching for another dose. I have days, consistently, where I take eight. She even wakes to take medication in the middle of the night. I actually never have a moment without hayfever,

I wake up with it in the night time, I have it all day. While there are no significant side-effects of taking higher doses of non-sedative antihistamines, patients are advised to see their GP often, especially if symptoms aren't getting better. We'd recommend that people look at the maximum dose, maybe go half as much again, but generally, if they're using higher than recommended doses

for more than two or three days at a time, they should seek further advice.

Asthma and skin conditions can also worsen with hayfever.

Doctors say more aggressive treatment, using steroids, may be necessary if symptoms can't be controlled. Lou Hendricks, Ten News. Paul McCartney's divorce battle gets dirtier.

The top stories we're following this news hour - a small town on the north coast is struggling to cope with the loss of four teenagers in a car crash. Police are yet to speak to the 17-year-old P-plater who was behind the wheel. A Sydney teenager accused of setting fire to a passenger train is behind bars. A court was told the 18-year-old did it because he was bored. And John Howard has flown into a diplomatic storm at a Pacific Islands Forum in Fiji. The leaders of neighbouring nations are unhappy over Australia's stoush with the Solomons.

Now to the latest evolution in mobile phone technology. The new must-have gadget means you'll never be lost again, no matter where you are. It gives you every street corner in the palm of your hand. A mobile phone at its heart, this new device uses satellite navigation

to guide you around your home city or 100 others across the globe. You have arrived at your destination.

You can have information about where you are, what you're doing,

what you would like to do in the future and also perhaps, even where your friends are. The Nokia N95 is one of a new breed, merging various technologies into one hand-held device. More than merely downloading a map, this uses satellites to pinpoint where you are and guide you to your destination. But it's also a 5-megapixel camera for stills and video, an MP3 player and hand-held computer with high-speed Internet access.

It's not alone though - other devices using a similar theme. It means that users can just bring one device and enjoy all the functionality in their convenience. Like the Nokia, the MIO A701 includes global positioning as the hot new technology. Retailers say sales of regular GPS devices have been staggering, doubling each year for the past three years.

But they expect the new merged products to create even more interest. While having navigation in your pocket is exciting, the next stage goes beyond the maps, offering services and features that promise to make your life even easier. What you'll see is enhanced functionality where you'll get live updates whether it's weather or traffic and they'll be pushed to your unit so it will automatically re-route you.

Both the Nokia and MIO also interact with the Yellow Pages, enabling you to ask the device to find a restaurant, call it to make a reservation and then take you there. This is not the ultimate use of GPS, this is the beginning of GPS implication. Both devices will be available in the next few months. Eddy Meyer, Ten News. The Australian stock market closed in slightly negative territory following a weak lead from the US.

The club will continue to review operations of the business, whether it's the coach, the players, other parts of the business as well - we're going to continue to review and if a change needs to be made to any of those parts of the business, a change will be made. Sydney fans were calling for Butcher to be axed after Saturday's loss

but it's the voice of part owner Anthony LaPaglia which will be giving the coach more cause for concern. Fortunately for Butcher, the TV star's stake in the team is only 7%. Suggestions LaPalia is at odds with the rest of the board

Alvin Ceccoli was dropped after swearing at Butcher earlier in the season. A punctured tyre cost Michael Schumacher any hope of ending his career with another world championship

at the Brazilian Formula One Grand Prix. But he did retire with one of his best drives. For mere mortals, a puncture usually means a very flat finish.

COMMENTATOR: It's all going pear-shaped for Michael Schumacher. But not for this driver. From mangled rubber came shredded timesheets. From last place, Michael Schumacher surged through the field to finish his final race a memorable fourth. Side by side. Don't collide, guys. Please, don't collide. Raikkonen gives him room.

Schumacher is through. The crowd goes bananas. The locals going crazy too for Schumacher's Ferrari team-mate Felipe Massa, the first Brazilian since Ayrton Senna to win his home Grand Prix. And for second-placed Fernando Alonso, a second-straight world championship, just 13 points ahead of a man with seven titles to his name. To become champion when Michael is still on the track has made it more value than when he retired.
