But first, winter has well and

Just like a well aimed snowball, it

was a cold, hard hit and it caught

many of us off guard. That just got

straight in my face. Even in the

snowfields, the locals weren't sure

what to make of it. But the early

cold snap soon had them jumping for

joy in Thredbo and Perisher - where

more than half a metre dumped down.

wind chill factor is making it feel

a lot colder than it really is. We were meant to be were meant to be enjoying 14

degrees today but winds from

Antarctica made it feel more like 6.

While the surge of cold wind is

heading out to sea, a high pressure

system is moving in which will lead

to clear skies and light winds,

that's the perfect recipe for very

cold night time temperatures and

widespread frosts across NSW and Victoria.

Five people were on board the

helicopter when it crashed into the

car park just before four o'clock

this afternoon. We now know that

two people on board had suffered two people on board had suffered

spinal injury, the others have

escaped relatively unheard.

Conditions had been atrocious all

day. We notice a lot of turbulence

in the air. Firefighters had

covered the helicopter with a fine,

preventing it from catching fire.

Authorities pulled the victims from

the wreckage. The area has been

cordoned off, preserving the crash

in Sydney's Harris Park. Frustrated

Indians have rallied on the streets

for a second night, claiming that

safety fears. police have brushed aside their

Finding strength in numbers, young

Indians made their frustrations

Around 200 youths converged on

Harris Park for a second night demanding greater police protection.

Some brandished weapons as rumours

spread Middle Eastern men had

attacked protesters. This man

claims he was bashed by 10 Lebanese

wielding baseball bats. They were

in the cars and they were fully

armed with baseball bats and things

like that and this thing happens in

accused front of police. Police have been

accused of doing nothing to stop

the violence. Give us statements,

give us evidence, so we can make

arrests. It's a general perception

of a lack of police action that

makes many in the community here

feel so unsafe. Those that we've

spoken to say that when a crime is

reported that happens right here in

broad daylight, it takes police too

meny hours to respond. It took

police 8 hours to help Ganesh Loke

after he was punched in the face

here yesterday and his glasses were

smashed. I want the police smashed. I want the police to be

more vigilant and more proactive

because if they don't take these

matters seriously it will keep

happening again and again. Today it

was the wiser community heads who

tried to bridge the ethnic divide.

Better we can sit together and

solve this issue sooner, as soon as

possible. Frank, a 40-year veteran

of Harris Park, has seen the

growing tensions as more Indians

move in to a predominantly Lebanese move in to a predominantly Lebanese

suburb. You gotta give 'em time to suburb. You gotta give 'em time to

blend in. News of the protests has reached Indian television, making families of local students

concerned. They are calling us just

wanting to know if we are safe or

not. The Prime Minister says the

growing tensions don't make

Australia a racist place. All

cities from time to time are going

to have acts of violence. Let's put

this into perspective. A sister and

brother have been a child over

A Life last simply over a barking

dog. A 47-year-old was returning

home with a friend after a day of

they walked they told their

neighbour's dog to shut up. The

owners of the dogs have grown

outside and a series of divided

to the ground and fatally stabbed

through the back. The brother

pleaded guilty while the sister

pleaded not guilty but was

convicted but it -- by the jury. In

sentencing, the judge said it was

unclear which sibling had picked up

the knife and inflicted the final

blow. He therefore sentenced the

brother to for use non baroque and

his sister to 10 years. Both

sentences grossly inadequate sentences grossly inadequate

The confident of Australian

Dick Brisbane Broncos are

considering cancelling Friday

night's game because of swine flu.

It all hinges on Karmichael Hunt's test results? test results?

The Broncos are still waiting on

the test results. We had been told

there would happen by four o'clock

but we're still waiting. Last night,

we saw 50 players and staff who

have been in contact with

Karmichael Hunt warranting. Some of

those had been tested and have been

given Tamiflu as a precaution. If

he's found to have swine flu, we

are likely to see Friday night's

games against the Bulldogs cancel.

Thank you. These Socceroos Ra

headline act, but will they draw a Sydney crowd at?

We will have to wait and see it.

There are concerns about how many

fans will turn up tonight. With

only 40,000 tickets sold, the crowd

might be on the small side?

I do not think these chilly

conditions are again to be helping

them very much. It is a stark

contrast to four years ago when

this place was packed to the

rafters. That time, it was all to

play for because Australia still

had not booked eight place in the

World Cup for Germany. Now they are

already going to South Africa.

Perhaps the fans will turn out to

help the team celebrate. Let us

hope they do because they deserve it.

The Eels make good on the threat to

rebuild their team with big

signings. One of the game's most

sought-after forwards from the drop

a lucky charm for a sporting team.

A truck crash on the F3 has left

truck on the side of the road. Both

vehicles caught fire. vehicles caught fire.

The mangled wreck of a B-double

truck spread out over several

hundred metres. Nearby residents

say the crash sounded like an

explosion. The semi was carrying a

full load of beer kegs when it

slammed into an RTA vehicle parked

on the side of the road. It's

understood a ground crew was

clearing grass from the verge just

before the impact. We are unsure of

what has occurred but we do know

that we have at least one deceased

person. An RTA worker in his 50s

died at the scene. Another four

were injured and have been taken to

Gosford Hospital. The semi driver

survived the impact and is being

treated for shock. He's been

arrested and will undergo drug and

crash sent both trucks down an

very lucky that more people were

not injured by flying debris. Traffic heading south towards

A man has been extradited to Sydney

to face a murder charge dating back

14 years. Cold case detectives

arrested Darren Smith on Sunday in

the Queensland town of Bowen. They

allege the 43-year-old killed

Russell Lyons in a car park brawl

in Fairfield in 1995. The 20-year-

old died of head injuries. A

special strike force was set up

last year to investigate the crime.

A Sydney bikie has been extradited

to Adelaide, accused of torturing a

man with a cattle prod. Franchesco

Condo, a senior member of the Finks,

was arrested after DNA evidence allegedly

allegedly linked him to the

abduction of an Adelaide man in

2000. The 39-year-old is also

charged with assaulting another man

in May this year, also in Adelaide.

He's been remanded in custody until next week.

And former crime fighter Mark

Standen has been committed to stand

trial, accused of plotting to

import at least 300kg of

pseudoephedrine into Australia.

Phone calls, faxes and statements

obtained by Federal Police officers

allegedly link the 51-year-old to

the scheme. Standen was a senior

Crime Commission officer when he

was arrested in June last year after a 2-year investigation spanning three continents.

Frustrated parents are planning to

drag the State Government to the

Human Rights Commission over the

treatment of special needs children

in schools. They say there's a

clear case of discrimination.

Not many people have been singing

the Premier's praises lately. But

that changed when he joined his

colleague Julia Gillard on what you

could call a stimulus symphony.

(SINGING) No, I've never seen

anything like it. They certainly

haven't - $2.3 billion in the

second round of funding for

building new classrooms. Now,

that's a huge amount of money.

Money classrooms like this are in

desperate need of. Parents of

children with special needs claim

the State Government's been

derelict in providing adequate care

for their children. The children

can't actually stand beside their

able bodied peers and function

effectively. Almost 80% of principals rank special needs

funding as poor or very poor, and

point to the case of 5-year-old

John Quinn. He receives 18 minutes

per day funding. They label it's discrimination and are planning

legal action in the Human Rights

Commission to shame the Government

into action. There are roughly

10,000 special needs students in

New South Wales. And parents say

they could be properly looked after

with just an extra $350 million in

funding. A claim countered by what

the Education Minister says is a

more than adequate spend. It's a

record amount, so over a billion

dollars a year. Dollars which have

helped the likes of Blake Mason,

but his carer and grandmother Bev

fear for his future. If he doesn't

get the education now, how's he

going to cope when he's 15, 18?

Still no word on whether the NRL

will be forced to cancel Friday

night's Brisbane Bulldogs clash

because of swine flu. There are

fears Broncos fullback Karmichael

Hunt has contracted the virus. The

league is still waiting for his

test results. The Broncos took no

chances this morning, cancelling

training and telling their entire

squad to stay in isolation.

Elsewhere other Origin players were

allowed out of quarintine but there

was no sign of Michael Crocker at

Souths training - the club

confirming he stayed at home with

The Parramatta Eels have declared

themselves a club on the rise after

today signing key forwards Justin

Poore and Shane Shackleton. The

recruitment of two quality forwards.

Suddenly the future's looking

bright at Parramatta. Yeah, very

exciting. Not since probably last

Christmas was I this excited. The Eels signing hard-hitting Roosters backrower Shane Shackleton for

three years. But the biggest prize

is Justin Poore. The Dragons and

Blues Origin prop also signing

until the end of 2012. He's a State

of Origin front rower and it is a

huge boost for our club. But there

is a downside. It means a clean out

of the current ranks is inevitable.

Yeah, there are players that are

off contract who won't be playing

for Parramatta next year. Off

contract Eels include backs Eric

Grothe and Taulima Tawtie and

forwards Joe Galuvao and Todd

Lowrie. Their next concern, though,

is adding to an impressive 8-match

winning streak against the Wests

Tigers when the two sides clash on

Monday night. And after that, who

knows where the Eels might end up?

sitting on the top of the table but

we're not giving in by any stretch.

There's a long way to go.

It's normal to be nervous before a job interview. BOY: Yep. Especially one that has real career potential. Yes, Mum. And a real future. Yes, Mum. (SPEAKS INDISTINCTLY) There's a big difference between a job and a career, Wally. OK, here we go. It's really important to make a good first impression. Yes, Mum. MAN: Hi, I'm Chris. Would you like to come in? Good luck, Mum.

Just through here. Hey, look, it's kicking. It's kicking. Look! (BOTH SHRIEK) Did you see that? Do another one.

Before we go to weather, let's get

an update on the Dreamworld chopper

crash. Ten reporter Bianca Stone is there.

Details are sketchy but what we

have been told is the trouble was

coming into land. It was in its

final stages of landing when there

was some kind of Power failure. It

seems the pilot has done the heroic

think and moved the chopper and

crash-landed it into an empty part

of the car park. The chopper is

into pieces. The tale is 20 metres

from the main section. There is

wreckage spread over 40 metres.

There were four Asian tourists on

board. Firefighters say it was hard

to communicate with those tourists

because of the language barrier.

All of them are OK. They only had

minor injuries. The pilot has some

injuries to the lower part of his

back. It seems an amazing story of

survival and the pilot has done the

right thing. Thanks, Bianca Stone

at Dreamworld. Tim, we were jolted into winter today?

You could not get to Ugg boot some

quick enough. Sydney's coldest day

of the year. We think we will go

Australian Alps. Not only their but

in unlikely places. A flake or two

across the Blue Mountains. We had

some at Oberon. The southern table

degrees below average. What are we

going to do with bad weather

will ease tomorrow. That will give

us some relief. The wind chill will

not be as bitter as it was today.

We will get up to 16 degrees

tomorrow and mainly fine and sunny

until the weekend. Your weather

another beauty. We go to Newcastle.
