Tonight: Getting tough on asylum

seekers. The government suspends

visa applications to stop the flood

of boat people. Another Salvos

store goes up in flames, destroying

goods for the needy. We just seem

to go from one disaster to another

it's never hit me like this before.

breaking news - rescue efforts are breaking news - rescue efforts are

underway to free passengers stuck

on a rollercoaster at the Royal

Easter Show. Ten reporter Matt

Doran joins us from Sydney Olympic

Park. Matt, what's gone wrong? At

this stage it is not clear but this

right was meant to be the

centrepiece of the carnival. It was

a roller-coaster brought in from

Italy at a cost of several million

dollars. Three passengers have been

trapped almost upside down for

nearly one hour. nearly one hour. Best kicker is

hoping Cauldhame including the fire

brigade and police rescue. A young

family is trapped, a mother with

her young son and daughter. No-one

is injured. They are around the

start 10 metres from the ground but

the mother has been visibly

distressed throughout the ordeal,

making a series of phone calls and

calling out for help. It calling out for help. It appears

they are moments away from freeing

the family. Actually one of the

daughters has just been lowered on

to a crane. I spoke to one of the

staff members working on this ride

and they told me off camera that this roller-coaster has had

problems. This is the third time it

has mysteriously malfunctioned.

Other it punters said they were

trapped on this same road earlier

today. It just got stuck and they

would not release the Highness and

we were trapped in there. For about

15 minutes. -- the harness. The

lady in the middle trapped up there

is petrified because it must be her

son on the edge. He must be scared.

It appears no-one will be injured

but they should be free. Sure that

within a matter of minutes. The

problem has turned into quite a

spectacle here at the show which

has so far run without a hitch. The

area is cordoned off and everyone

is watching to see how the rescue

unfolds. Hopefully a happy ending.

We will update you on that as it

continues. The door has been shut

Rudd Government suspending refugee on some asylum seekers, with the

claims from Sri Lanka and

Afghanistan. The Prime Minister

says it sends a strong message to

just a smugglers, but critics claim it's

just a vote winning exercise. This

ship averted a human tragedy when

it came to the rescue of asylum

seekers lost in international

waters as they tried defined

Christmas Island. The vessel began

sinking while under escort. Some

survivors were plucked from the sea

in pitch-black conditions. The fact

that the rescue took place in that the rescue took place in the

dark is a credit to those involved.

It is the 38 boat this year and the

government has had enough. Boat

people from Sri Lanka and

Afghanistan and now face an

immediate ban on their claims thing

process. If someone's claim for

asylum is not legitimate they will

be sent home. Afghans face a 6-

month delay and Sri Lankans three

months. They will be held in

detention and almost certainly send

home. The Immigration Minister

denies that this amounts to the

same treatment as the Howard

government. We think the situation

in this country is improving. Extra

police and right here are on their

Island. Beefed way to the overstretched Christmas

Island. Beefed up Criminal

Intelligence and new laws will

target people smugglers and those

to finance them. Those found to

provide material support to people

smuggling will be subject to 10

years' imprisonment. This is Kevin

Rudd's rednecks solution. The

government admits measures will not

immediately stop the boat. People

smuggling is being said

smuggling is being said to be out

building in an election year. This

is no solution, just an election

fix. This government is looking to

stop a headline, not the boats. A

man has been charged over a fire

which has gutted a Salvation Army

store, destroying $100,000 in goods

destined for the needy. It's the

4th Salvos fire since December. It

is a store that provides a helping

hand but this morning it went up in

a blaze of smoke and flames. You

could few explosions happening over

there. Inside, furniture and

clothing worth more than $100,000

was all destroyed. The 4th arson

attack on a Salvador in as many attack on a Salvador in as many

months. Staff are struggling for

answers. It is not the first time

it has happened. We seem to go from

one disaster to another. No-one was

hurt but it took 90 minutes for

firefighters to put out firefighters to put out a fire and protect neighbouring properties.

People were evacuated to safe areas

and traffic was disrupted. Police

arrested a 29-year-old man at a car

dealership next door. He will face

court tomorrow on arson charges.

Everything in this tour was

destined for the neediest members

of the community. With all that

destroyed the Salvation Army say

they need the public's help now

more than ever, especially in the

lead-up to the winter. The more you

help us the more we help with the

our heritage through him. It is

heritage the family will try to

showcase during a traditional

funeral next week. Former champion

boxer Grant Brown has broken down and cried after suffering and cried after suffering a loss in

court today. He allegedly punched

an elderly man, fracturing his

skull. A magistrate refused to

throw out his charge. He was hoping

to have the charge dismissed

because of mental illness but the

last November, fracturing his skull

asked that he be diverted to a

treatment program, suffering from

depression and an obsessive

compulsive disorder. He had not

agitated when he argued with his

stop swearing in front of women and he attacked he attacked him and knocked him to

I object strenuously to the fact that

that these funds are being taken

from our State and from other

states and then being recycled back

as "New Commonwealth money".

The Prime Minister promised at the

last election that he would end the

blame game, the blame game is alive

and probably as fierce as it's ever been.

Mr Brumby wants a 50:50 funding

split, a fighting fund paid for by higher tobacco taxes.

We do think Mr Brumby's proposal is unrealistic.

The PM is more conciliatory.
