Inside the wreck, dozens of trapped

make it home from work. The trains

were on the same tracks and heading

in the same direction but one in the same direction but one was

at a standstill when the crash

happened. We stopped, and it felt

like an explosion. But we were hit

at what seemed like full speed by

the train behind us. The train is

sitting on top of the cart that I

was on. I was kind of in the front

of it so it pushed us forward. It

felt like an earthquake. It was

with passengers. Dozens were able

to walk away but many were taken to

appearances, Mr Turnbull revealed

he had been dealing with Godwin

Grech before last week's explosive

senate inquiry evidence. I have

certainly spoken to Mr Grech. I

don't want to comment on dealings

between Mr Grech and the Opposition.

I have not said whether I've seen

the email or not. Everyone has been

misled, even me. An Opposition

Senator Abetz dealt with Mr Grech. The Opposition leader revealed

today he knew what evidence the

public servant would give last

were the full dealings in regard to

this forged and fake email? They've

accused us day in, day out - no

convinced Mr Grech is closer to the

Liberal Party than it admits and

this would account for the implicit

faith Mr Turnbull placed in his

information, that miscalculation

has undermined the credibility of

the Opposition's attack on

Grech's home was Treasurer Swan. Overnight, Mr

Grech's home was attacked by egg-

throwing vandals. Mr Turnbull says

he can't be held responsible for a

didn't snowball and catch all the

boats alight. A 40-year-old

caretaker suffered facial burns -

he had to jump from the houseboat

when his clothes caught alight. He

called for help, he was actually in

the water when we turned up and two

of my crew actually pulled him out

the boat when it exploded, I

believe. A sudden wind change and

the distance the boats were from

the wharf made the job of the seven

fire crews doubly difficult. They

were forced to use portable pumps

in a 4-hour battle, during which

the burning house boat broke its

moorings and crashed into a 20m

$500,000. Forensic teams were back

Police, as authorities try to work out what sparked the out what sparked the emergency.

Female political leaders have

applauded a magistrate's decision

to jail footballer Greg Bird for

attacking his girlfriend. It

coincides with a new campaign by

the Australian Rugby League to

tackle domestic violence.

Still reeling from his 16-month

jail sentence with eight months

non-parole, former Sharks star Greg

Bird is avoiding the media and hoping his conviction hoping his conviction will be

overturned on appeal. Political

leaders unanimously condemned Bird

for glassing girlfriend Katie

Milligan in the face during a

domestic dispute. Yesterday's

verdict shows that nobody is above

the law and people have to face the

full consequences of the law if

they chose to break it. The impact

of domestic violence on a family,

on a victim, on children is just terrible

terrible and we certainly want to

make sure that message gets out

very clearly - there is no place

for domestic violence in our

community. I'm not surprised he got

a jail sentence out of it, I

thought it was a bit short but I

think it was appropriate that he

did get a jail sentence. Sentencing

Bird, magistrate Roger Clisdell

said domestic violence was brutal,

cowardly and inexcusable. Rugby league and the league and the State Government are

using a series of new TV ads to

raise community awareness. We play our

violence is not on. We want to make

sure that we shut this down and

what better way than to use rugby

league and say, "Let's tackle this

issue". We don't want any more, "Oh,

I shouldn't talk about Greg, he's

got an appeal", but any more

incidents like that, people say,

"What are we doing about it?", this

is what we're doing about it. Bird

Four Coalition MPs have defied

nothing less. The coach used his

last press conference to get inside

the heads of the blues. For NSW, he

said there is never been a bigger

game in the history of the game. It

puts a lot of pressure on the

football side. We have a fairly

long history in origin, I imagine

there have been as big games as

this one. Football News, the jobs

of the selectors are safe up for

next year. Let us hope for a big next year. Let us hope for a big crowd at tonight.

Incredibly, the Sharks are now an Incredibly, the Sharks are now an

Blake Ferguson the star with a Blake Ferguson the star with a sensational hat-trick. No, we're

It's been an emotional day for the

Sydney Swans with Michael

O'Loughlin announcing this season

will be his last. One of the Swans'

all-time favourite players, Micky

O' paid tribute to his mum.

O'Loughlin needs just seven more

games to be the first Swan to reach

the 300-game milestone. A just

American Lucas Glover has won the

rain-affected US open, holding off

crowd favourite Phil Mickelson by 2

strokes. Overnight co-leader Ricky

Barnes crashed out of contention.

But it was Glover celebrating just

his second victory on the PGA tour.

Tiger Woods had an early miscue

after starting the day at even par.

COMMENTATOR: It won't do it. He

doesn't suffer mistakes gladly -

there were none at 14, the world

number one gunning for his fourth

US Open crown. But as Tiger's

charge faltered, so too did that of overnight co-leader Ricky Barnes.

Tiger's playing partner, Michael

Sim, the best of the Aussies,

finishing at 4 over. While 2003

Masters champion Mike Weir made it

look easy - he's 2-under par. But

there was no doubting the sentimental favourite, Phil

Mickelson saving par at 10, with a remarkable recovery.

Before he drew level, with eagle at

the par 5, 13th. Mickelson heading

into the final few holes, neck and

neck with countryman Lucas Glover.

The 29-year-old proving consistency

is key. This approach to 16,

setting up his only birdie of the

round. But with his first US Open

in sight, Mickelson stumbled.

Bogeys at 15 and 17 meant there

would be no fairytale win for his

wife, who's battling cancer. He's

gotta have it! Glover with a

straightforward 2-putt to clinch

victory - the first major of his career.

Both Lleyton Hewit and Samantha

Stosur begin their Wimbledon quests

tonight. Jarmila Groth is already

through for Australia. Her reward,

a round 2 clash with second seed

Serena Williams. Maria Sharapova

also a round 1 winner. While 5-time Wimbledon champion Roger Federer

cruised through his match in 1 hour

and 40 minutes.

In the absence of defending

champion Rafael Nadal, a swish-

looking Swiss Roger Federer opened

the championship on centre court

before giving his opponent a tennis

lesson. Chasing a record 15th Grand

Slam victory, a clinical Federer

put on a show for his London fans.

The Fed expressing through his

opening match in straight sets. I

think I got the respect I deserved,

it shows just how hard it can be to

play against all these guys. James

Blake learned just how hard it can

be - the American becoming the

tournament's first seeded casualty

- a straight-sets loser to Italy's

Andreas Seppi. And that is a

sensational way to wrap it up. A sensational conclusion to Novak

Djokovic's opening match too - his

opponent Julian Benneteau seriously

injuring his knee in the fourth set

before bravely contesting match- point.

In the women's draw, Maria

Sharapova unveiled her newest all-

England club best, and despite some

minor slip-ups, grunted her way to

victory. Jarmila Groth the lone

Australian in action and a winner

over good friend Lucie Safarova -

to the delight of Antipodean fans.

They really take me as an Aussie by

now, every tournament I play. Groth's next challenge - two-time Wimbledon winner Serena Williams.

Australia cricket captain Ricky

Ponting isn't protecting boom

opener Philip Hughes from

expectations in the upcoming Ashes

series. Instead he's putting an

element of pressure on the 20-year-

old. I think Hermann Simon Katich

hold the key to how our team will

perform over the next few months.

Hughes is in stunning form, scoring

three centuries for Middlesex

recently. This week Australia plays

a 4-day game against Sussex. World swimming's governing body

FINA has overruled an expert panel

and approved all of the

controversial swimsuits to be worn

at next month's world championships.

Australian coach Alan Thompson sat

on the panel, which concluded more

than 100 suits were illegal. I

think there will be a run on world

records. It's been in question

forever - and that's unfortunate.

It's a win/loss scenario for

Australia's Eamon Sullivan. He

keeps his 100m freestyle world

record after Alain Bernard's mark

was rejected. But Frederic

Bousquet's 50m freestyle world

record set in April will stand. Bousquet's 50m freestyle world

record set in April will stand. In

That's Ten News for now, I'm Bill

Woods. It was a lovely day today.

Some fog this morning and tomorrow.

Another nice blue Dave.

Temperatures - 19 degrees. This day

should be pretty good as well.

Northeast NSW, 24 hours of a

rainfall. 29 millimetres at Tweed

Heads and 24 hours. LNR has had 260

millimetres in 26 days. They can do

with that moving offshore. In

Sydney - 127 millimetres. That is 1

millimetres down on our entire

monthly average. Dem figures will

be on our television on Thursday. In your backyard:

Cloud over victoria mac and NSW.

Showers over SA and Tasmania and NSW.

In the south-west and slopes and

planes, 5 to 20 millimetres will

fall hopefully. A good looking day

in Sydney as we have said. Around

at 19 degrees. It will stretch

through to Thursday or Friday. A

bit of praise staff for the weekend.

See you again tomorrow. That is Ten

News. Thank you for your company.
