The Premier has been forced into yet another embarrassing apology over Sydney's ailing transport network. Gridlock on the Spit Bridge overnight took the gloss off the Government's pledge to improve rail services to the city's west. Long-suffering motorists on the Northern Beaches have more reasons to be angry with the State Government. For more than two hours from 7:30 last night a mechanical fault left the Spit Bridge open, preventing drivers from crossing. There should have been proper warnings for people approaching the Spit Bridge last night. Needless to say, there should have been proper maintenance on the bridge. Last night's incident was frustrating and obviously we apologise for the inconvenience that it's caused. Even for those who were sent to repair the problem, it was a struggle to get to the bridge. There is white rage on the Northern Beaches. We are sick of being treated with contempt. Oh, it's an absolute nightmare, especially in summer, when the big yachts are trying to get through. Many drivers remember the Government's first broken promise after the 2007 election - cancelling plans to widen the bridge. We have reduced the opening times of the bridge so that there are no openings during the morning peak. I think it may be appropriate to review opening times for even the evening. The only way to guarantee no repeat of last night's chaos is to build a tunnel underneath. But both sides of politics agree on one thing - that's just too expensive. But the Government is spending more on rail out west. In response to overcrowding, from August there will be one extra fast train service from the city to Penrith, and increasing the number of carriages for four other trains. and cheaper tickets.

That's through an extension of the 14-day rail pass that offers a 35% discount on daily prices. It's now available at most stations. Kevin Wilde, Ten News. Frustration over fuel prices has given a major boost to a controversial advertising campaign against the Government's proposed FuelWatch scheme.

The Internet ad has become so popular it's now destined for prime-time television. It's captured the imaginations of motorists who are petrol-weary and cynical. Hey, Brad. What's the price for tomorrow? (Bleep) expensive. That's the way! So far, this ad, by community lobby group GetUp!, has been seen only on the Internet, but it's so popular tens of thousands have been raised in days, enabling GetUp! to play the ad in prime time across the country. We've had a lot of feedback from the ad from people, saying, "Thank God that someone has finally come along "and said what we're all thinking." This is a humorous ad but the message at the heart of it is deadly serious. It targets the Government's FuelWatch scheme, in advance what prices will be. which promises to warn motorists GetUp! says FuelWatch ignores the real solutions. Investing in public transport, making the transition to renewable energies, not oil, making cars more fuel-efficient. While GetUp's controversial approach may not sit well with everyone, their basic message has broader support than you might think. Of all the major motoring organisations across the country, FuelWatch is a good idea. the NRMA is alone in believing The RACV is a vocal opponent of FuelWatch. They've got their own barrow to push in relation to alternative fuels and that's fine, but it's an ad which is quite amusing and really does highlight the fact that FuelWatch will not do anything for bringing down petrol prices. Automobile association members are divided on FuelWatch but clear on fuel prices. When it went through $1.50 they got angry. As it went through $1.60 and $1.70, potentially they're going to get even angrier. GetUp! promises to follow the ad with other fuel campaigns. FuelWatch - we can see the future, and the future is very (bleep) expensive. Eddy Meyer, Ten News. Jane McGrath will be farewelled at a private funeral in Sydney tomorrow. Only relatives and close friends have been invited to the service at the Garrison Church in The Rocks, where Jane and cricketer husband Glenn were married. The family says the venue is a special place for them, but is not big enough to hold well-wishers. They've thanked members of the public for their continued support, with more than $200,000 donated to the McGrath Foundation

since Jane's death on Sunday. Ahead in sport with Brad McEwan, the Blues make some major changes for the Origin decider. Yes, with the series on the line,

Superintendent Vivian Rex Little was charged after his former wife turned in computer discs and DVDs to the Police Integrity Commission. It's alleged the discs contained two images of child pornography. The 16-year-old soccer player allegedly king-hit by a parent from a rival team

has told of his horrific ordeal. Christian Pikardt says he didn't see who hit him, he just went numb and saw pools of his own blood. Christian Pikardt's girlfriend, Chloe Fisher, is the first to testify she watched as a tall bald man swung his arm towards the 16-year-old player, right as he was punched to the ground. She says it was father of four Enzo Melani. Christian told the court he didn't see the punch. The last thing he remembers was turning away from Enzo Melani, and the next thing he knew he was laying on the ground.

Then Christian felt his nose. Christian told the court he had confronted Enzo Melani after the game, he thought was in danger. to protect a fellow player Christian Pikardt needed two rounds of surgery to fix his broken nose. So far no-one has been able to tell the court they definitely saw Enzo Melani throw a punch that connected with Christian Pikardt's face, has come forward, but another spectator, Barrat Taylor, saying he got involved in the brawl and Enzo Melani put him in a headlock right before he was repeatedly punched. The week-long hearing continues tomorrow,

when defence witnesses are expected to be called. Evan Batten, Ten News. A man who was dramatically rescued after two days stuck inside a cave has been charged by police. Geoff McDonnell suffered minor injures when he was pinned by a rockfall at Wombeyan Caves, in the Southern Highlands.

The cave was off-limits to the public and the 47-year-old was exploring on his own when he became trapped. More than 100 people were involved in his rescue.

Mr McDonnell will face court next month,

charged with entering the cave illegally and risking the safety of others. Heinz has voluntarily recalled some of its popular baby food because of fears of chemical contamination. Two products -

Globetrotters Butter Chicken and Delights Lemon Creme - were pulled from shelves after tests found they contained used to make the glass jar lids. high levels of a chemical While there's no Australian standard, experts say high doses of the chemical over prolonged periods

Her charred body was discovered the next day in NSW. A search is under way on Facebook for Lisa's estranged husband, who is believed to be overseas, are also on the web but relatives of the missing man urging them not to jump to conclusions. Tony Mokbel will fight the legality of his extradition from Greece

in Victoria's Supreme Court. His lawyers say the fugitive should never been brought back to Australia

with an appeal pending in Europe. Tony Mokbel's lawyer raced from court, perhaps not expecting the waiting media pack after scheduling a video link appearance for his client half an hour before the listed time. What will you be arguing? That will be discussed in court. Thank you. All parties agreed the hearing into whether Mokbel was extradited from Greece illegally should be heard in the higher jurisdiction of the Supreme Court. Mokbel's legal team says his extradition was an abuse of process

as an appeal was pending in the European Court of Human Rights. Mr Bagaric says he'll fight to have Mokbel's new charges - including those for murders of Lewis Moran and Michael Marshall - put on hold permanently. He indicated the Supreme Court could list the hearing as early as next week. Meanwhile one of the alleged accomplices in the Mokbel escape has been granted bail. 46-year-old Angela Nissirios is one of six people accused of helping him flee Australia two years ago. Police allege Mokbel hid out in Bonnie Doon for months before sailing to Greece. Bailed defendants normally step through this door to their freedom, but it appears Ms Nissirios is an exception. Staff at the Melbourne custody centre say she was spirited out of a secret exit to avoid photographers. Kate McGrath, Ten News. A Sydney-led breakaway conference of Anglican Church leaders concedes the church is "hurt and broken". More than 300 bishops from mainly African countries, as well as Sydney Archbishop Peter Jensen,

are meeting in Jerusalem to discuss the Anglican Church's future. They're opposed to the North American church, which made an openly gay man a bishop. We think the people who have taken these steps in the United States about them, really need to think again and I don't think they have done it yet. Despite their discontent, Dr Jensen says they're not looking at splitting the church.

Hundreds of delegates from around the world have gathered in Chile for the International Whaling Commission's annual meeting. Environmentalists protested outside the conference, while inside, the Australian delegation, led by Environment Minister Peter Garrett, called for a total ban on whale hunting. Last year, Japan, Norway and Iceland slaughtered 2,000 whales in the name of scientific research and tradition. The United Nations has condemned the worsening violence in Zimbabwe. The UN Security Council says President Mugabe's crackdown on opposition supporters has made it impossible for a fair election to take place. too much intimidation. There has been too much violence, A vote held in these conditions would lack all legitimacy. Opposition leader Morgan Tsvangirai has taken refuge at the Dutch Embassy in Harare, after pulling out of Friday's presidential run-off. The Government says the vote will still go ahead. 38 survivors have been recovered from the wreck of a ferry in the Philippines. Many of them spent more than 24 hours at sea, initially in life rafts, then in life jackets. They believe about 100 people may have escaped the vessel, which capsized during a typhoon. More than 800 people are still missing. Researchers believe they're a step closer to finding the cause of Alzheimer's. They're focusing on a protein that's been used to create the same symptoms in rats. It's a breakthrough providing hope to debilitated minds - a protein called beta amyloid. Amyloid beta damage the connections between neurons, and primarily in the memory centres of the brain. The sticky protein develops around neurons, but scientists have been unsure

if that's the cause or a side effect of the disease, and build-up is rarely consistent. It seems like we have these smaller clumps of the protein that are likely to be more toxic. US scientists injected three types of amyloid into rats. but the third caused memory damage, Two showed nothing, identifying one specific molecule that has the Alzheimer's effect.

It might be that some of their cognitive deficits are due to these less visible, smaller molecules.

As many as 1 in 15 Australians aged 65 and over are living with Alzheimer's. And while a treatment is still a long way away, this latest research is a significant step forward. places we can look for treatments.

The 28-year-old woman was refused bail. She's accused of failing to provide her children with food and shelter. Embattled MP Belinda Neal has stood aside from a key government role while police investigate if she lied under oath over the Iguana nightclub scandal. A former staffer has accused Neal of bullying her into making a false statement. And the State Government has been forced

into another embarrassing transport apology. Morris Iemma said sorry to motorists after a mechanical fault put the Spit Bridge out of action for several hours overnight, causing traffic chaos. Drivers with a lead foot beware - new technology could slow your speed against your will. A system is being trialled that reduces the fuel going into your engine if you drive too fast. It looks very similar to your Satnav or Tom Tom, but with one very big difference - (BEEPING) this device warns you that you're speeding then slows the car down if you don't. The vehicle's now gradually slowing down as fuel is cut to the engine. Developed in Australia it's called Intelligent Speed Adaptation and it's smart enough to allow you to increase speed to overtake if need be. You override it by putting your foot flat on the accelerator. ..and this could well be the way of the future in slowing drivers down. dodging accidental speeding fines It could also mean more drivers but, more importantly, avoiding the hundreds of deaths attributed to speed on our highways. We estimate that we will get quite a significant reduction in the road toll if we can get people to adapt this technology. Now whether this technology ends up in every car is obviously a long way off. There will be an 18-month trial first

then it's a matter of convincing people they actually need it. It would have to be part of the manufacturing process, as those who love their fast cars may be reluctant. to let Big Brother take control. Others, though, seem happy I think it's a great innovation. I've often found myself exceeding the speed limit - not meaning to but just not glancing down often enough. This very smart Satnav may soon be just the medicine. (BEEPING) Josh Murphy, Ten News A leading financial expert has dismissed the theory that a million Australian households are suffering mortgage stress. He says they're doing it tough because of their lifestyles, not their loans. In the age of invisible money and instant credit, bankruptcy levels are sky-high. And they will get higher. The fact of the matter is we've got some $40-odd billion sitting out there on credit cards. Paul Clitheroe argues it's clever money marketing and not mortgage stress that's left many families in financial trouble. I've yet to see an Australian lose their house over their mortgage. I've yet to see one. What it is, it actually is, in my experience, it's the ancillary debt. It is the three credit cards, it is the two car loans. It is the finance contracts. A Melbourne Institute report has found the number of households spending their savings just to get by is on the rise. The advice - get disciplined. Budget, just budget.

Make note of everything that you spend. Most Australians, they try a budget, the budget fails. Why does the budget fail? Because we are not honest with ourselves in the first place.

Single mother of two Megan Klinkenberg

may be Australia's best budgeter. She began detailing her spending two years ago. Food, shoes, clothing, movies, doctors, dentists, dry-cleaning.

She cuts corners to maximise cash. The small savings help stretch her nurse's salary. Megan fills up her car once a week, on cheap Tuesdays, and subscribes to entertainment voucher books. I've since found out about the Cinebuzz card through Greater Union,

and that's a free sign-up and it allows you to go and see movies for $9. And she now steers clear of buying big-ticket items on high-interest contracts. Some people don't think about it. They think, "Oh, I've 12 months," but they actually make no payments towards it, and then, of course, they get caught out at the end with huge interest rates. Jacqueline Maddock, Ten News.

It's up there as one of most unappealing jobs of all time - trawling through the greatest crimes against music to come up with a winner. And a panel of music experts in the UK thinks it's found the most appalling cover song in the world. It's something that makes music fans very, very angry - when someone takes your favourite song and re-records it because they think they can do better.

Queensland has backed the same 17 players for the Origin decider. NSW will debut Mitchell Pearce. to their first clean sweep, 22 years after his dad led the Blues 'Junior Jr', as he's been dubbed, the injured Peter Wallace. will replace NSW selectors opted for the Roosters halves, while Joel Monaghan replaces the injured Mark Gasnier. Late today, Mitchell Pearce calling the shots at NSW training two decades after his dad did the same. He was over the moon, as you'd expect, him and Mum. I'm in a bit of shock myself. It makes you feel pretty good when you see your parents proud like that. But Pearce Jr is expecting a tough initiation next week, just like the young prize winner in NSW's team photo. I'm pretty positive that they will be doing that - they'll be running at me and probably trying to bash me. But I'll just keep getting up and hopefully keep doing my best. He definitely doesn't lack any courage, so if they try and run at him he'll sit a few on their backside, I think. The 19-year-old's ability to hit the ground running in Origin football is a major talking point, especially after his father's comments last night. As I said before the series started, I would prefer to see him just held back for 12 months.

His club coach was forced to disagree. That was a tad disappointing, Junior. In today's game, I don't think age has that much bearing on it. His dad was a close supporter right through his junior days. The champion North Ryde Hawks under-12s team of 2001 also contained rugby star Kurtley Beale. A former team-mate of Pearce Sr says Pearce Jr is ready. He's got a great passion for the game and he's a very good young player. It's great to see - he could make it his own for the next decade. Pearce will partner Roosters team-mate Braith Anasta in the halves, Anasta replacing the injured Greg Bird. Anasta revealed he thought his Origin career was over. While grateful for another chance, he's not pretending he's going to be the difference between success and failure. It's not so much me coming in trying to be the hero, the saviour, as some people would say, I suppose. Adam Hawse, Ten News. Craig Wing will make his return from a shoulder injury in this weekend's match against the Cowboys, his return another boost after the Bunnies picked up more points beating the Gold Coast. The young Rabbitohs scored a thrilling one-point win against the Titans. Their ability to stay in the match was the most impressive aspect for the coach. You know, we've got a lot of young guys in there who don't know how to give up, and that's something we don't want to teach them, and I think that's rubbing off on all of us. Kiwi Hooker Issac Luke was the star, with two tries and the penalty goal to secure the win. Wallabies coach Robbie Deans has shown faith in his team, naming an unchanged line-up for Saturday's opening Test against France. But this time selection comes with a warning - perform or face the axe. It's Test two for the unchanged Wallabies and a second chance to impress coach Deans. We're looking for that group to push on but we're conscious of the fact that our start standard wasn't good enough. will give his troops the opportunity Deans believes continuity to improve on that scratchy win over Ireland, and if they don't, heads will roll. Yeah, that's very clear. The competition for spots is pretty fierce at the moment. Inside centre Berrick Barnes has a particular point to prove after watching Timana Tahu carve up for Australia A on Sunday. Red-hot - that first half he had was probably one of the best individual displays you'll see, so he's definitely on form and it shows, like Matt said, there's a lot of competition for spots, and we've just got to aim up. In contrast the French have limited depth with most of their Test regulars playing in their domestic finals. Only one starter from last year's World Cup semi has been named in the 15. Still, Deans isn't expecting a Wallaby walkover.

You can drag someone off the street and put them in a French jersey and they'll play out of their skin. While others will be playing out of their facial hair - World Cup cult figure Sebastien Chabal has earned a recall, yet was surprisingly shy when it came to discussing his rugged appeal. I don't want to talk about myself. Let's talk about rugby, that's it. But there was something he did want to clear up - his nickname, 'the Caveman'. That's a nickname, but it's not my nickname.

Lleyton Hewitt has survived a 5-set struggle against an unseeded Dutchman to advance to Wimbledon's second round. were also day-one winners, Sam Stosur and Casey Dellacqua but Chris Guccione is out of the tournament. Whilst the strawberries may have been going down nicely, Lleyton Hewitt's first-round opponent was doing anything but. 64th-ranked Dutchman Robin Haase pushed the Aussie to five sets. When the going got tough, Hewitt got going, to progress through to the second round. COMMENTATOR: Well, what a shot. Yes! Physically I feel fine. It's probably more how the hip pulls up over the next 24-48 hours. Chris Guccione was eliminated in four sets by Serbian Ilia Bozoljac, who was only included in the draw hours before the match as a replacement In the women's draw, her opening match, Sam Stosur powered through the Australian wild card taking just 66 minutes to defeat her Romanian opponent. Oh, she finishes it off in style. Australia's top-ranked female, Casey Dellacqua, scored her first Wimbledon victory, upsetting 12th seed Patty Schnyder in three sets. Oh, that's a huge return there. Aussie Ana Rodionova was named Australian in the draw but Russian in the official program, but no need for a reprint - the unhappy Rodionova was eliminated in the first round. A cardigan-clad Roger Federer progressed through to the second round in straight sets, but never to be outdone was Serena Williams, who graced the grass of Wimbledon in a trench coat.
