It went through this morning people were affected by it. and you could see as we left King's Cross. I think they were apprehensive It may take some time for Garri Holness to return to the Tube but for now, he's just happy to be alive. Garri lost part of a leg

when the bomb exploded on the Piccadilly Line. I remember one girl shouted out, "I've lost my legs, I've lost my legs!" And that made me look at my leg and then I looked at my leg and I picked up my left foot at a very funny angle,

I looked at it and I thought... He's had plenty of time to think about the bombers. The people has brainwashed them and got them to do that, it's those people who I hate

because those people are turning normal people against Muslims. Along with the immeasurable human cost, London has changed in many other ways in the last four weeks. In Oxford, Regent and Bond streets, where shoppers spend ?5.5 billion annually, trade is down 20% to 30% since the bombs.

NSW's infamous sleeping judge has finally retired after failing a health test. Dubbed 'Judge Nodd', Justice Ian Dodd was best known for dozing off during at least nine cases in the District Court, including a rape trial. The 57-year-old was offered medical retirement

after an independent health assessment revealed he was unfit to continue on the bench. Diagnosed earlier this year with sleep apnoea, Justice Dodd will retire on a healthy $152,000-a-year pension

and his ill health means an official inquiry will not be conducted into his conduct. NASA has cleared space shuttle 'Discovery' to return to Earth.

The agency ruling out a fourth spacewalk to carry out more repairs. As 'Discovery's astronauts prepare for their own risky return to earth they've paid tribute to the 'Columbia' crew and others who never made it back.

ASTRONAUT: To those who have courageously given so much we now offer our enduring thanks. From you, we will carry the human spirit out into space and we will continue the explorations you have begun. On the ground, NASA bosses argued over the need for a fourth space walk to try to repair damage to a thermal blanket beneath the cockpit window. Eventually they gave the shuttle the all-clear to fly.

Soichi, we have good news. The MMT just got to the conclusion that the blanket underneath the CDRM window is safe for return. There's no issue. That's, I would say, good news. But NASA says there are no guarantees. The blanket may still pose a threat if it shreds during re-entry. In the end they decided sending another astronaut on a repair mission was far riskier than doing nothing at all.

We believe the chances of anything untoward happening with this fabric

is remote. Australia's Andy Thomas helped examine the problem gap-fillers which were removed during emergency repairs yesterday. He admits his family in Adelaide is worried but says he and his fellow astronauts have faith in the ground crew. On their day of remembrance, they wore crew patches from the doomed 'Columbia' mission. All well aware the best tribute to the fallen is getting home safely.

At the going down of the sun and in the morning, we will remember them. In the United States, Leisa Goddard-Roles, Ten News.

The temper tantrum that landed a preschooler in hand-cuffs - that story when Ten's morning news returns. And the housewife who won $185 million - why the one thing she wants is something money can't buy.

Tough discipline for a preschooler, slapped in handcuffs after a temper tantrum. Police were called when the 5-year-old girl struck out at a teacher. It took two officers to restrain her.

She was the one that committed the crime

and, by our policy, at that time could be handcuffed. The laws have since been changed. The officers weren't disciplined. An Israeli soldier has gone on a murderous rampage on a bus before being lynched by a furious mob. A crowd swamped the bus when the teenage soldier ran out of ammunition. They kicked and punched the soldier to death after he sprayed bullets throughout the bus, killing four Arab-Israelis. Israel has condemned its soldier as a terrorist while the Palestinians say the 19-year-old had been filled with typical anti-Arab racism. A crackdown on motorcycle thieves ended with a dramatic road smash in Thailand.

Police had arrested a gang in a town outside Bangkok and were loading a recovered scooter onto a tow truck when a four-wheel drive veered across the road and slammed into them.

Amazingly, only five people were injured and just two of them needed hospital treatment. Tow truck operators and bystanders turned on the driver as he was led away.

He said he lost control while changing a CD. Police say he was drunk and charged him. A massive rescue operation in India, where flooding has brought the country's financial capital

to a standstill. Mumbai is home to 15 million people. The water claiming hundreds of lives. Over seven days of almost unrelenting rain and still more misery for the people of Mumbai. The heaviest recorded rainfall in Indian history has unleashed the worst flooding in living memory. Almost a metre of water fell on a single day. This family saw their home deluged. They're proud people who worked hard for their few possessions. They'll have to start over. Over 5 million people have been affected by the flooding and almost 500 killed in Mumbai alone. The vast majority were poor shanty dwellers living in Asia's biggest slum. Power - the lifeblood of this intensive care unit for prematurely born babies. These fragile lives are sustained by a constant supply of electricity - electricity the hospital was starved of during 36 hours of power cuts.

Emergency generators quickly kicked in but with Mumbai paralyzed, they were fast running out of fuel.

They were always scared that if suddenly the generators were not working or we had a problem, it could be very dangerous. REPORTER: But you didn't lose any babies? No, we did not.

People here are no strangers to suffering but nothing prepared them for this.

Ahead - the comments that could see the AFL double its fines for clubs who criticise umpires.

After a week in hiding, the winner of Europe's biggest-ever lottery jackpot has finally surfaced to accept her prize. After arriving by police escort

and fighting her way through a media scrum, a shocked-looking Dolores McNamara accepted her cheque for, wait for it, more than $185 million. The Irish housewife from Limerick refused to be interviewed, her lawyer speaking instead on her behalf. She is absolutely determined that her feet and the feet of her family will remain firmly on the ground. The mother of six has spent the last week in hiding with her family in a luxury hotel in Cork. In finance news, a slow start to the day

services to the bush. England has taken the honours in a drama-packed first day of the second cricket test at Edgbaston. Australian spearhead, Glenn McGrath, seriously injured an ankle before the start of the game, then the home side went on a run spree, making 407 after being sent into bat. The omens were bad after Glenn McGrath trod on a ball in the warm-up, rolled an ankle, and left the field in agony.

He'll miss at least two Tests. I realised, I reckon before I hit the ground, that I was out for this Test match - at worst, be available for Trentbridge. Then Ricky Ponting sent England in on a flat deck. and Trescowthick and Strauss got England off to flyer. They were helped when Warne spilled a catch and Trescothick was caught off a no ball, and they racked up a century opening stand in even time...

COMMENTATOR: That's a terrific hit. ..before Warne confused Strauss just before lunch.

Just as it looked to be getting out of hand, up stepped Michael Kasprowicz. A little outside edge - on 90, walks! Trescothick 10 short of a ton. England alarm bells were soon ringing, the young number four again failing, and Vaughan's hit and hope found Lee. Now, then, there is a man down at the fence.

It is close to the fence. Warne's frustration grew as the umpire turned him down. Even with his eyes wide shut, Flintoff hit the middle. Edgbaston was simply too small as he smashed five sixes. That's a few - don't worry about that. The convicts looking to flee with the constabulary out in force. But on 68, Freddie's innings ended with a whimper. Geraint Jones continues to test the faith,

Peiterson again loving the big occasion. And Peiterson plays another remarkable stroke. But his patience ran out on 71... He's gone again - and he's out! Warne saved his best for last - England all out for 407, their highest opening day score against Australia in 70 years. Rob Waters, Ten News. The AFL has fined Collingwood coach Mick Malthouse a maximum $5,000 for criticising umpires. The League will now look at sharply increasing the amount for a first offence. League operations manager Adrian Anderson as flagged a review of fines following these comments from Mick Malthouse after last Sunday's match against Fremantle. I thought the umpiring today was, they were the third team. You need to see two teams out there, not three. They had far too much influence on the games. The league considering an increase from a $5,000 fine for a first offence, such as Malthouse's, to $10,000, The Magpies face the Kangaroos at the Telstra Dome this weekend but the Roos are already setting their sights well beyond Sunday. I think we are a definite chance. If we can sneak into the top four, then I reckon we'll give a few sides a shake and hopefully rattle a few sides

and they'll probably get a little worried if we can sneak into that top four.

A similar vein of confidence is sweeping the Western Bulldogs. Coach Rodney Eade letting the dogs off the leash

as they continue their unlikely charge towards September

against the Eagles tomorrow. I'm a bit of, mind you at the moment, not to keep a lid on it, just to go with the flow, but having said that, we've got to make sure we've got our effort right. Damian Booth, Ten News.

The Cowboys' Carl Webb makes his return from a groin injury against the Dragons in Townsville tonight. The hard-hitting front-rower also expects to resume on-field hostilities with Dragons prop Luke Bailey. A heavyweight clash between the pair was one of the enduring images from this year's State of Origin series.

Webb emerged the winner on that occasion and it's one of the key match-ups again tonight.

I haven't really thought of it - I didn't know he was playing - I haven't thought of it at all, but in saying that, you mightn't have your best game. He has got one up on me, but in saying that, you know, if we get a win, I'll be happy. I've got really nothing to say about it. It's just something that's been drummed up in the media I mean, we're going to get on with our jobs. It's all happened, it's all fogotten, water under the bridge, Both teams share 26 points on the ladder and are desperate to stay in the top four.

Everyone's well aware how close the competition is and we're only one loss away from being out of the eight, so, you know, everyone's pretty level headed and looking forward to the job this weekend. Manly who take on the Broncos on Sunday need a win to stay in the eight. Yeah, we have just got to get some confidence. At the moment, we've forgotten how to win and I am sure a good performance will put that together. Sam Harris moves to five-eight and lines up against Darren Lockyer. He'll definitely worry us, but if our defensive structure's in place,

and we do everything we are supposed to, we'll handle him ok. Brisbane prop Petero Civoniceva is in doubt for the clash with knee and shoulder injuries and may be rested for the finals. I'd love to play, but, you know, I think, more importantly, we've got bigger things coming in a few weeks' time. And if I have to rest this week, then may as well do it.
