Now to other news and a man has been charged over a stabbing murder in Melbourne's northern suburbs.

Police say the 25-year-old victim was stabbed in the upper body after a dispute outside a house about 10:30 last night. He was treated at the scene by paramedics but died on the way to hospital. A 24-year-old man is due to appear in the Melbourne Magistrates Court later today. The sad passing of a television comedy legend. Ronnie Barker, the larger half of The Two Ronnies, has died, surrounded by his wife and three children after a long battle with heart disease. Think British television comedy, think Ronnie Barker. Good evening. I'm from the Ministry of Sex Equality. When two pairs of spectacles and two comedians with the same name appeared on the box you just knew you were in for a good time. Music, and a team of researchers in Salzburg have uncovered an early Mozart score. She was only 16 and lived over in the bakery opposite. Ronald Barker was born in 1929 and had lofty ambitions - to become a bank manager. But something drew him to the theatre then radio and eventually TV. Hello. He first teamed up with Ronnie Corbett in 'The Frost Report' but it was as 'The Two Ronnies' that they would make television history, starting in 1971. I can read women like a book. What system do you use? Braille.

At its peak, they had 17 million viewers tuning in across Britain. As a performer, as a writer, as a person, he was just an absolute gem. 75% of the show was written by Barker but for years he sent his scripts in under the alias Gerald Wiley so they'd be selected on their quality and not because he was one of the show's stars. For a time Barker went inside, starring as Fletcher in the prison comedy 'Porridge'. I've got something very serious to say. I don't know quite how to put this, gentlemen, but there is a thief among us. He considered it his best work but many fans also loved him as Arkwright, the stuttering, sex-crazed, shopkeeper in 'Open All Hours'. Avagar is prounounced 'ava gardener. We used to say 'ave a gardener, she's the one to have it all. He officially retired after that to open an antique shop but was lured back for a number of reunions with Corbett, the last earlier this year.

What wonderful luck to be flanked on

What wonderful luck to be flanked on either side by my two best friends. Sad but true - we'll never hear this famous farewell again. So it's goodnight from me and it's goodnight from him. (Both) Goodnight! Angela Bishop, Ten News.

The mammoth task of separating twins joined at the head. Why doctors think the operation will be a success - when the morning news returns. And the space tourist returns from his trip of a lifetime. Just how much his inter-galatic adventure set him back. Two victims of the London Underground terrorist bombings in July are the first to receive compensation, but with up to 2,5000 claims likely but with up to 2,500 claims likely many are demanding an overhaul of the way payments are handled. Edgware Road station on July 7. I remember the flash of white light all around me and the noise - the screaming and the burning sensation

and the fireball coming out of the back of me. Chris Randall's facial burns healed quickly, but getting compensation, he says, has been an ordeal. I feel disappointed. I was injured to a minor degree. If I had been injured a lot more and lost limbs you know, I would have been absolutely, you know sick of it by now. For the survivors of the bombings here at Kings Cross and elsewhere in London, the priority has been their own recovery. But many of those who have applied for compensation have been shocked at how long it takes. How bureaucratic the process is. And the body in charge of compensation says it needs medical and police evidence before it can make awards. But there are calls tonight for the compensation scheme to be overhauled, to bring it into line with the much bigger settlements handed down to people who successfully sue for damages in the civil courts.

Another deadly hurricane has hit, this time in Mexcio. Raging floodwaters and mudslides from the storm claiming 59 lives. What Hurricane Stan didn't destroy the floodwaters did. Rivers turned to raging torrents in southern Mexico and across Central America,

washing away homes and people.

The storm yet again forcing offshore oil workers to evacuate in what is now one of the worst hurricane seasons on record. In the wake of Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans has been dealt another blow.

The cash-strapped Mayor forced to sack 3,000 city employees - half his workforce. We are just not able to put together the financing necessary to continue to maintain our City Hall staffing. Business owners are trying to rebuild the economy, but they face a new problem - mounting rubbish. It's estimated 22 million tonnes of garbage is waiting to be removed - that's equivalent to 200 football fields, each piled 15 metres high. Today former president Bill Clinton

was welcomed back to the disaster zone as a hero. CROWD APPLAUDS

He's promising those still stuck in shelters that the $100 million he and former president George Bush Senior have raised will improve their poor quality of life. What we tried to do is to set up a system that will help people solve problems in the short run that the Government won't fund. Problems, it seems, like a shortage of clean clothes, medical care and a home. In United States, Leisa Goddard-Roles, Ten News. An oil tanker has exploded in flames in New York. The truck overturned with the fire quickly spreading to nearby cars and businesses. The highway and nearby rain line were closed. The driver had no time to escape. Fresh hope for 10-year-old Indian twins joined at the head. An American neurosurgeon says although he's waiting for more tests he agrees with doctors that the girls can be separated successfully. A medical challenge - twins born joined at the head. 10-year-old Saba and Fara have grown up with very distinct visions of their future. Saba dreams of one day becoming a teacher, Fara wants to be a doctor. It's the prospect of deciding whether they will lead separate lives that haunt their father. Doctors in India have called on the skills of an American surgeon's hands to determine the fate of the twins. Dr Carson is one of the world's leading neurosurgeons. If the girls' parents agree, his team will use a procedure that's the first of its kind. We're still at a stage when it comes to trying to separate craniopagus that everything is pioneering We haven't gotten to a point where it's routine yet. Surgeons will strip away a layer of bone where the twins' skulls are joined. Fluid from the brain will naturally pump from the crack between the two sides. Over a period of months the fluid should erode and divide the brains, just like water in a crevice between rocks. Eventually the erosion will force the twins' brains apart and the separate can be completed. While their parents make an agonising choice, without surgery, doctors warn the girls face an uncertain future. Both rely on Fara's kidneys. She's already showing signs she can't support both of them. What's hot and what's not. We talk fashions in the field with a racing expert when Ten's Morning News returns.

American millionaire Gregory Olsen says his trip to the International Space Station is worth every cent of the $25 million he paid. After specialised training Olsen soared into space on a Russian 'Progress' spacecraft. He's the third civilian to visit the station since the cash-strapped Russian programme turned to paying passengers for revenue. I'm having a great time, I mean, this is, you know, a dream come true

and just to float down the station is an indescribable experience. Olsen is helping with some station operations before returning next Tuesday.

Both captains have signed off on revolutionary new powers for the umpire with the remote control, who will now be able to rule on no-balls, lbw shouts and whether the ball hits the bat before pad. If it adds to the game, makes it... ..better decisions made without taking away too much of the human element

and without stopping the game too much then we're all for it. While the expanded powers of the third umpire are only being trialled for the Super Series, the captains accept this could soon be the way all cricket is officiated. In rugby league young St George Illawarra forward Ben Cray has been rushed into the Australian team. Cray replaces injured Parramatta star Nathan Hindmarsh. His club said he was fit enough to play in the Grand Final but Nathan Hindmarsh's season is officially over because of an ongoing knee injury. He's not totally happy in the sense that he wants to be in the tour and he was keen to go but he understands why he's not going and what the implications are if he plays and it's not fully healed. Creagh is one of four Test rookies in the Kangaroos squad. Another debutant, Storm winger Matt King, says part of his rise this season is the anonymity of living in Melbourne. You put your thongs on and go and get the groceries and no-one disturbs you, you're just your own person and I really think that's kept my feet on the ground being down in Victoria. Unlike the Swans the NRL premiers, the Wests Tigers, won't be receiving a Sydney ticker-tape parade. But plenty of suburban councils are ready to honour the merged club on their streets. The Tigers want to ensure as many fans as possible see the trophy. I want to make sure it gets out to the public, don't want to lock it away

Obviously you need to make sure it's secure but it belongs to the people. The fans - they really got a say in it this year and we want to make sure they can all have a piece of it. Owen Martin, Ten News. Sydney appears to have given up hope of signing Hawthorn ruckman Peter Everitt with the Swans completing a trade for Geelong bigman Paul Chambers. Following the retirement of Jason Ball the AFL premiers were desperate to secure another ruckman and offered Everitt a lucrative 3-year contract. But with Hawthorn refusing to trade the 31-year-old the Swans last night agreed to trade pick 35 in the AFL draft to Geelong in exchange for Chambers, who has played 32 games for the Cats in 4 seasons.

boarded a RAAF Hercules at Darwin Air Base. The three men and six women are being accompanied by defence medical staff The Hercules is expected to land at Williamtown near Newcastle later today. The patients will then be transported to John Hunter Hospital by ambulance. Computers and robots are continuing to make giants strides. That brings you up to date with all the news.
