Tonight - drink drive shame. A

police officer jailed after blowing

five times the legal lipt on his

way to court. Tough tactics

backfire for a police officer in

Kings Cross. The Keneally

Government's popularity slumps to a

record low. The next election will

be like climbing Mount Everest. And

the senior citizen who was

absolutely shocked by the email she

received from her local council.

Are you a bitch? I wouldn't think

so. Not really. Good evening. Jockeys

Jockeys questioned over a betting

scandal. And the reason Julie

Andrews really hated filming this

classic scene? First tonight - a

policeman sentenced to jail and

banned from the road tr 10 years

over staggering drink driving

offences.. He was busted driving

drunk to court to face charges

being almost eight times the drink

drive limit. The senior constable

took an oath to uphold the law but

today he was convicted of one of

Australia's highest drink driving

readings. No comment. I've been advised through legal avenues to

make no comment at all. The 38-

year-old was wearing his police

overalls when he

overalls when he blew 0.395 in

November last year. He fell from

the driver's seat of his Nissan

after a collision in the car park

of his supermarket. Remarkably, he

was booked a second time, blowing

.253 as he drove his way to Gosford

court. He later told officers he

drunk a bottle and a half of scotch

before getting behind the before getting behind the wheel. In

sentencing Campbell to 12 months

jail and suspending his licence for

a decade, the magistrate said:

The court heard Senior Constable

Campbell was diagnosed with post-

traumatic stress disorder after 16

years in the force. Now, recovering

in a rehabilitation centre, he's

been sober for 130 days. And is

keen to become a councillor to help

others -- counsellor to help others

beat their addictions. He spent

less than an hour in custody. Late

this afternoon he was released on

bail pending an appeal. Do you

think you've learnt your lesson?

Definitely, Sir. I can't comment

under fire for any further. The police force is

under fire for using heavy-handed

tactics to stop the filming of a

violent arrest. It was a Ten News

cameraman who had to explain to

police the public's legal rights.

It was an over the top response to

the simple act of filming a police

arrest. Turn it off now before I

smash it on the ground? The Ten

News cameraman began filming on his

mobile phone when he came across

police struggling to arrest a man.

We witnessed the police, this

particular woman putting her knee

in to the offender's head. That's

when the officer objected

aggressively. It's a serious threat.

A threat of violence. A threat to

break my property. And then a shove.

And some foul language. By law, any

member of the public is entitled to

film in a public place, police film in a public place, police

arrest or not. Officers only backed

off when the cameraman produced

media identification. Police can

request people not to film them but

they have no right to demand it or

have no right to push them who are

filming them, to threaten them or

to even look at the material that's

Service been recorded. The Police Legal

Service has warned its officers

that the widespread use of mobile

phone camera technology will see

them filmed increasingly and it's

not illegal and something they must

be aware of. A local commander said

the police officer has been

counselled over the incident. We

acknowledge it could have been

handled better. And the matter has handled better. And the matter has

been dealt with at a local level.

The offender has been charged with

resisting arrest and offensive

behaviour. A coroner has

recommended charges over the fatal

police shooting of a mentally ill

man. Elijah Holcombe was shot dead

after allegedly confronting an after allegedly confronting an

officer with a knife in June last

year. Thon day he died, the 24-

year-old had gone to the police

station and then been taken to

left and was pursued hospital for treatment. He later

left and was pursued by Andrew Rich

who shot Elijah once in the chest.

The coroner has suspended the

inquest, recommending criminal

charges be considered against a

known person. Kristina Keneally is

now leading the most unpopular

Labor Government ever. The Premier,

facing political annihilation, says

the March election will be like

climbing Mount Everest. Kristina climbing Mount Everest. Kristina

Keneally insists her abysmal polls

haven't triggered leadership

rumblings and she still thinks she

can win. Most people don't agree.

I don't need a poll to tell me what

I already know, which is I have a

tough job. Indeed, probably the

toughest job in Australian politics.

It would certainly be rewriting the

record books if this Government

were to come back from that

position. Newspoll predicts Labor

will lose 31 seats and nine

Ministers. Kristina Keneally would

survive but others would go.

Nothing can be taken for granted.

Certainly, in my own electorate, Certainly, in my own electorate,

I'm out there every day, every

night, every weekend talking to my

community and working with them. community and working with them.

And so some have stood out in

Opposition but many are unknowns.

They're still waiting to

demonstrate they've got the

capacity to run a government. Polls

will narrow as we get closer

towards the election campaign but

nothing will stop Andrew Stoner and

people in NSW I continuing our efforts to give

people in NSW the change they

deserve. The election could see the

representation substantially with Greens increase their

two lower house seats and an extra

two seats in the upper house giving

them the balance of power. Newspoll

numbers suggest Greens candidates

will eliminate the education

Premier. The minister and deputy -- Deputy

Premier. The Greens have thrown

their support behind Joe Hockey in

his fight against greedy banks,

federally. Bob Brown is seeking a

meeting and says the Coalition

could join the Greens in banning

$2ATM fees. Baurb Brown believes he

has something to -- Bob Brown

believes he has something to offer

the Government. He likes what he

sees? I'm looking forward to

talking with Joe Hockey about how

we can progress some of those ideas.

Perhaps the start of a new

alliance? No. I don't think so. But

I welcome the fact the Greens,

Independents and others are jumping

onboard. And in turn the Greens are

inviting the Coalition to vote for

its bill outlawing bank ATM fees.

Mr Hockey keener to have another

bash at Mike Smith. Mr Smith earns

$50,000 a day but the people that

underwrite his bank earn $50,000 a

year. The Government says it's the

middle-income earners that would be

hurt if the Coalition's tax

preferences ever see the light of

day. Target of the attack - a flat

tax proposal floated last night by

Tony Abbott. To increase the tax-

free threshold to $25,000 and to

have a flat rate from that point to

an income of $180,000 a year.

Middle-income earners would pay

around $500 a year more under the

proposal that Tony Abbott has

embraced. The PM left the argy

Hanoi. Four days away from the

Melbourne Cup - the racing world

has been rocked by scandal. Two

jockeys are being investigated for

allegedly using a TAB account to

bet on races. He's enjoyed racing's

highest glory but faces a career low.

low. Two jockeys are being

investigated for allegedly

illegally betting on horse races.

We received information to the

operation of a TAB beting account.

They were questioned in

relationship to that. Racing NSW

says it was alerted to the possible

breach in September during a

routine audit of punter accounts.

There's a means of comparing not

only names, but other means of

identification. And that brought

the particular account under notice.

It's illegal for jockeys to bet on It's illegal for jockeys to bet on

any thoroughbred race. There can't any thoroughbred race. There can't

be any implied idea that the jockey

is betting on the race. Jockeys not

involved in this investigation say

the rules are clear. I think

everyone's been in the game long

enough to know where we stand on

that. The racing industry's very

strict. It is disappointing but

it's not going to take the focus

off the fantastic racing. The

jockeys won't be prevented from

racing in the Spring Racing

Carnival. The agents representing

both riders wouldn't be interviewed

today, saying it would be inappropriate to

inappropriate to comment before the

hearing. Racing NSW says it's

possible other parties will also be

cited. A Sydney woman is struggling cited. A Sydney woman is struggling

to understand an insulting email

from a local councillor. The

councillor's blaming it on his son.

When Betty Wickens wrote an email

to her local council, she simply

wanted to know if her bowling club

was being renovated and why the

local hall was being torn down. She

was not at all prepared for the

response. I couldn't believe it. I

just could not believe it. The

reply to Betty and other people read:

Hurtful. To think that a person

that has been put in to council, to look

look after the people of the area,

and that's the way they think about

us. When the grandmother complained

about the email, the councillor

blamed his young son, claiming he

had sent it. I hate to ask you this,

but are you a bitch? I wouldn't

think so. Not really. My

grandchildren don't think I am. I

think that's absolutely atrocious.

I can't believe our councillors I can't believe our councillors

would use that sort of language

about anybody, at all. I think it's

disgraceful. The councillor was

unavailable for an interview today.

We're told he's travelling overseas

on private business. He did,

however, issue a written statement.

In it, he once again apologises. He

says he has punished his son and

bought a mobile phone holster to

prevent future mishaps. An apology

won't take all that away. Still to

come - an urgent weather warning

issued to the Derby Day crowds.

Plus, the family of missing

schoolboy Matthew Appleby issues an

appeal. The decision in the middle

appeal. The decision in the middle

of the night that saved a man's life.

SO FAR, ALL OF THE PRINTS FROM THE CAR-- THEY MATCH HOFFMAN.

The father of a missing Central The father of a missing Central

Coast teenager has made an

emotional appeal for his son to

come home. It's been almost two

weeks since Michael Appleby

vanished and there have been

reported sightings of him as far

away as Queensland. It was always

going to be difficult making an

appeal no father should have to.

Hoping his boy is still alive.

James Appleby spoke directly to him.

Matt, your mother and I and your Matt, your mother and I and your

brothers, we need to know where you

are. We need to know you're alright.

Jet has been pining for you. Please

pick up the phone and give us a

call. Matthew Appleby was last seen

dropping his younger brother at

primary school on Monday last week.

A few hours later, a couple of

people think they saw the 16-year-

old at a bus stop near his high

school. Police believe it could

have been the missing boy. His

backpack and shoes were found

during searches at Avoca Beach

later in the week. He's always been

full of life and potential. He's a

very caring and bright young man.

So far investigators can think of

no reason the straight A student

would go missing. There's no

information to suggest there's any

issues at home. There is so much

ground for police to cover and they

weren't able to search everywhere

they wanted to here at Kincumber

Mountain yesterday. That search has

now been suspended while officers

go through all the information.

There have been unconfirmed

sightings of Matthew Appleby has

far away as Queensland. Police they

they're relying on calls from the

public to help realise what's

happened to the teenager. While

we're thankful for all the support

we've received, we would also

please ask you to respect our

privacy. A family says it's been

the target of a shooting as

community anger rages over

Adelaide's house of horrors. The

case saw five children starved to

the brink of death. After a $30,000

clean-up, the house is now a clean-up, the house is now a family

home. But not everyone knows it's a

new family. We've had garbage

that's been dumped all over our

front yard. We had two bullets that

were fired at the house. One came

straight through the window and

another ricocheted. We've had eggs

thrown at the house. Megan has

spent two years explaining she has

nothing to do with what happened

there before. I think it was the there before. I think it was the

kids, we were worried about their

safety. Not that anyone will ever

be allowed to know who lived there

previously. The bizarre web of

relationships means naming the

adults would identify the five

starved children. Their mother has

already been jailed and their

father was convicted yesterday. His

stepfather found guilty too. Each

of them was in a relationship with

one of three siblings who lived in

the house. The mother's boyfriend,

the third man convicted. But it's

the father's girlfriend who is key

to the whole thing. It was her idea

for everyone to live in the same

Housing Trust property. She had 12

children of her own. There were 21

in the house in total. That netted

a social security income of over

$100,000. This case does not

reflect, does not reflect the

failure of the approach we're

taking to our system. The reason

the five children were singled out

was petty and cruel. Although she

wanted the money, the father's

girlfriend didn't like his old life

being a part of his new one. The

question remains why her hold over

the other adults was so powerful

that each was willing to watch the

children being beaten, tortured and

fading away. The children taken

publicly from the house were

relatively healthy. The other five

were already in hospital. Skin and

bones. One of them hours from death.

Sentencing begins next week. A

Melbourne man's decision to burn

the midnight oil may have saved his

life. A car smashed through his

bedroom wall moments after he got

out of bed to do some work on his

computer. My bed's been

disintegrated. It's completely

shattered. I'm sure I wouldn't have

made it had I been in bed at that

time. The driver and passenger were

lucky to escape with minor injuries.

Police say the car crossed a

service lane, median strip and

through a fence before crashing in

to the brick wall. A bleak outlook

in Victoria is threatening a

washout on the opening day of the Flemington Carnival.

Flemington Carnival. It may be

short-lived but the sun was shining

at Flemington as the famous track

was groomed ahead of the first day

of the carnival. And with a bleak

outlook forecast, at track work,

preparation was key. Yeah, ready

for the rain. Got my wet weather

pants and race gear ready to go.

There are some weather predictions for

for Derby Day. But I think they're

changing. A bit like Bart Cummings,

I think they'll come good. The

Cup's king will not be trackside

tomorrow to see his two Derby hopes.

But neither runner is expected to

perform well in the wet. And while

the forecast which saw a slump in

ticket sales has improved slightly,

the must-have accessory among race

goers is still an goers is still an umbrella. It

looks reasonably wet in the

afternoon. Expect five to 10

millimetres between midday and

about 5 or 6 o'clock. Despite the

outlook, tomorrow's racing will go

ahead. I don't have any major

concerns. Trying on a new look to

keep on top of trouble-makers,

police are going undercover.

Ditching the blue in favour of

suits and frocks. They will be

looking at more than just the form.

But the in colour is green. As

Flemington switches to sustainable

energy. But, new solar panels on

top of the grand stand to power the

race course throughout the season

may not be the best bet, at least

for this weekend. If you're in to

Melbourne Cup omens, Brad has

particular horse shortly in sport,

of coincidences and omens could see

a great granddaughter reclaim

racing's greatest prize for her

family exactly 100 years after they

first won it. Unbelievable. England

skipper Andrew Strauss hasn't

forgotten to pack the urn. England

He's confident he's recovered from

not getting through to his players.

Australia is hot favourite after England was beaten

England was beaten by New Zealand

24-10. Samantha Stosur lost, yet

still won through to the semifinals

of the WTA Championships in Doha

after a tight battle with Elena

Dementieva. She only needed to win

one set to progress and took the

first set with her trademark power

game. But the Russian fought back

to win the match in a third-set tie-break.

Stosur is the first Australian

woman to reach the last four at a season-ending singles championship

since Wendy Turnbull in 1982.

Looking for an omen bet for the

Cup? We have found one - Manighar.

Andrew Brown has discovered a

string of coincidences which should

make this international raid a favourite for

favourite for those looking for a

sign for Tuesday. According to part

owner Toni, Manighar is destined to owner Toni, Manighar is destined to

win the Melbourne Cup. My great

grandfather was the winner of the

1910 which was the 50th year of the

Melbourne Cup. I set my task I was

going to have a horse running in the Melbourne

the Melbourne Cup 100 years after

him. He was one of Melbourne's most

successful book-makers. He

pioneered doubles betting in the

early 1900s and in 1906 Green

travelled to England and purchased

some horses. Four years later, the

son of one of those horses, racing

under the name of Comedy King won

this, the 50th this, the 50th Melbourne Cup,

becoming the first imported horse

to win's great race. 100 years on,

greerpb's great granddaughter is --

Green's great granddaughter is

honouring his memory. I've been

inspired. Toni's 13-year quest for

a Cup starter came to fruition

after her cousin John had a chance

encounter. John rang me and said,

"I think I can make your dream come true." A friend true." A friend of mine rang and

said, "Would you like to go to the

races?" It turned out to be with

Simon and Terry. They sold them a

5% share in Manighar. There have

been all these amazing coincidences

that have bonded her to the 150th

Melbourne Cup. One of those is that

Manighar's first race was on Toni's son's birthday.

son's birthday. Toni discovered

another connection. He looks at me

and he goes, "My greatgrandfather

was a jockey on Comedy King." It's

all falling in to place. We'll find

out on Tuesday, won't we?

Rob Canning will have all the

latest sporting news, including the

latest from the Wallabies' camp.

It's just like Good Morning Delhi,

but with Bill. Like old times. Have

a great weekend. Time to check a great weekend. Time to check in

again with Vic in the traffic

chopper. You're above the Harbour

Bridge. How is it looking? Plenty

of traffic leaving the CBD. There

are no accidents or breakdowns. We

zoom in there but it's very slow

going. Heading there -l the way

through to -- heading all the way

through to North Sydney. Emacy Rice will join us next will join us next with all the weather details.

BOY: Is that your dad? (COUNTRY MUSIC) Oh, yeah! For a bit of the outback that everyone loves, get KFC's Outback Bucket. Our fresh, delicious chicken plus juicy roasted corn, warm damper bread, Smokey BBQ sauce and Traditional Lemonade. # Can't beat that taste. #

There's a lot of talk about the

rain threatening Derby Day. Will it

threaten Sydney, Emily? I don't

want to give it all away just yet.

But so far tomorrow is the pick of

the days for the weekend. It will

be around twaefbg degrees. No rain

tomorrow but -- 27 degrees. No rain

tomorrow but that will change on Sunday. Sunday. We're expecting by Sunday

afternoon a few showers here in

Sydney. It won't be a washout but

it will be different to dampen the

day. The Riverina, down in the

southern part of the State, they're

expecting up to 60 millimetres of

rain. They've had a lot of rain in

that area already this year. The

place looks amazing with all the

rivers at their peak. But rivers at their peak. But water

authorities are having to release

water from the dams, the Snowy

Mountains dams. The Blowering Dam

has not seen water spilled over

since 1993. So there's some

interesting water events coming up

over the next couple of days,

particularly if they get the 60

millimetres predicted. Let's take a

look now a little look now a little closer to home

what's happening weatherwise in

your part of Sydney at the moment.

The thick cloud stretching from

central Australia in to South

Australia in a trough is bringing areas of heavy rain areas of heavy rain and storms and

low cloud along the NSW coast in

easterlies is causing a few showers.

A trough will draw moisture from

the Tropics in to south-east

Australia, leading to heavy rain

over western Queensland, NSW,

Victoria and Tasmania. The rainfall

map - rain and isolated storms

spreading across most of NSW.

Heaviest in the west and south with

40 to 60 millimetres possible. Heavy Heavy rain spreading across

Victoria and Tasmania. And gusty

showers for south-east South

Australia. Well, rain - that's the

talk of the town here in Sydney on

Sunday and in the Riverina. Of

course, already they've had a lot

of rain down there. The countryside

looks just amazing. Around Wagga

wuinga, the billa -- wuinga, the billa -- -- Wagga Wagga,

the billabongs are full. Farmers

are happy and don't want too much

more but let's hope they get a

little bit more in to those dams

which we need for our irrigation storages.

Let's not worry too much about the weekend just yet.

weekend just yet. It's going to be

a lovely one tonight. Tomorrow and

Sunday, the rain will be back.

Thank you. Lots of people planning

that Cup day event. Anyway, that's

Ten News for now. Thanks for your

company. We'll have update

throughout the evening and I'll

have the Late News at 11:30. Have a

great weekend. Goodnight. Goodnight.
