This time the bandits got away with the whole machine. A terrified hotel cleaner was caught in the middle of the daring dawn raid. He thought a bomb had gone off when thieves drove straight into the bar he was cleaning. Scared - I wanted to run away, anywhere, everywhere. They wrapped chains around the ATM, and ripped it straight out of the floor, before escaping in a white van. Of late there have been a lot of break-ins and ATM robberies and gaming machine robberies. But we weren't expecting to be one of the pubs that got hit.

It's an epidemic that's sweeping the country. ATMs are being targeted in more and more brazen attacks, but the manager says he can't believe the lengths these robbers went to to get their loot. If people want the ATM they'll do whatever it takes to rip it out, but this is fairly extreme. Police say that if the thieves do manage to open the machine, they might be disappointed. It was a busy night here at the pub last night, and they think it might be close to empty. Police are hoping one of the 36 cameras in the hotel will lead them to the thieves. Simon Hooper, Ten News. Queensland's Police Minister has asked for an explanation over damning video from a Gold Coast watchouse. The footage shows a handcuffed man pushed onto the floor, breaking his front teeth and jaw in the fall. He's left alone while police walk over and around him.

On face value, obviously there are some concerns when you view that video. However, the full context of that particular situation is not clear - there was no audio. An internal investigation cleared officers of wrongdoing. A collection of high-powered military weapons has been surrendered in Sydney as part of the State's gun amnesty. The owner's lawyer gave Manly police a locked metal box containing several assault rifles and revolvers. The amnesty ends next month. Queensland's bikie clubs have united to stamp out violence and lobby government plans to outlaw them.

It's a bold move that other clubs interstate are now considering. 17 different clubs riding as one. Shoulder to shoulder, fighting government laws they say threaten their human rights. We used to just sit on our hands and take all of this, but that's the end of that now - we're all going to pull together. It'll be somewhat of a united nations of bikies, senior members discussing grievances to prevent violence on the streets. Positive public relations will also be on the agenda. The Rebels leader says it's about moving away from incidents like the infamous Gold Coast ballroom blitz shoot-out 18 months ago. That was the last one and that's been the end of it since then. The reality is outlaw motorcycle gangs and their activities are spilling over into the streets of Australia. The newly-formed council will meet once a week on neutral territory, most likely a public place, they say, to prove to the local community that they have nothing to fear from Queensland's motorcycle clubs. The laws targeting outlaw motorcycle clubs

are due to come into effect in mid-June. If people obey the law and do the right thing, they will have nothing to fear. Similar bikie councils are now being considered by interstate gangs. NSW has only just started, so I really haven't had any feedback from them. Jesse Grayson, Ten News.

Calls for a State Road Safety Minister to be sacked after notching up 30 traffic violations, that's next. And why the Russian military is feeling deflated as army chiefs look for cheaper ways to replace equipment.

South Australia's Premier is refusing to sack his new Road Safety Minister who's racked up $10,000 in traffic fines. Court documents reveal Tom Koutsantonis has had 32 infringements, including dozens of speeding fines. He's also been caught running red lights and lost his licence. I am a bad example of a bad driver doing bad things in the past, but my attitude has changed.

Mr Koutsantonis denies he's a hoon driver and has promised never to break traffic laws again. Billions of dollars will be spent upgrading Sydney's electricity system to prevent more crippling blackouts. The Energy Minister says it will cost $18 billion to bring the network up to standard. But the whole State will foot the bill, costing families an extra $100 a year. We have one of the cheapest systems in terms of cost to the consumer, as well as one of the most reliable systems in the world. There'll also be tougher fines for people who damage cables. Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has been invited by President Barack Obama to a crucial climate change summit in July. Ten News understands President Obama will host the meeting ahead of the UN climate change conference in Copenhagen. But the Government has rejected suggestions that it might be best to dump its planned emission trading scheme in favour of a better model later. We will put this up and the challenge for Malcolm Turnbull will be whether he is as good as his word. Senator Wong will also attend climate talks in the US next week. A sacked priest in Brisbane says he will continue to speak out against injustice within the Catholic church.

Father Peter Kennedy led his last service at St Mary's before leading a mass walkout. 1,000 parishioners followed the controversial priest down the road to his new church, St Mary's in Exile. We've been ousted by ultra-orthodox Catholics and we still maintain we are very much a part of the Catholic Church. The Church sacked Father Kennedy for allowing women to preach and blessing gay couples. An American journalist has been sentenced to eight years in jail for espionage in Iran. Roxana Saberi was arrested for working without press credentials

and later charged with spying for the United States.

She had been living in Iran for six years and working as a freelance reporter. A Belgian ship is the latest to be seized by pirates off the Somali Coast.

The crew are still on board and are being forced to head to Somalia.

Pirates also captured another ship, but Dutch commandoes managed to chase them down. The ageing Russian military has found a cheap alternative to spending millions on new equipment. Inflatable dummies are being used in Russia to fool unmanned spy planes. A tank weighs just 35kg and can be carried into place by two people.

They include 'Underbelly' star Simon Westaway and Hi-5 favourites Nathan Foley and Charli Delaney. I think it's a dream come true for me. What little girl didn't run around pretending she was Sandy? The choreography is being done by last year's 'So You Think You Can Dance' finalist Camilla, who has a couple of non-theatrical types to look after as well - Manly Sea Eagles star David Wolfman Williams and Federal MP Bronwyn Bishop as Rydell High's headmistress. They're very generous because they share their tips and help you along to actually learn the words and get it all right. The show is being performed on Sydney's Clontarf Beach, with all the famous costumes - which means Charli has to climb into the tight pants made famous by our Livvy. I don't have to act in that scene - it just happens. And one there's one more connection with the original Sandy and that is that all the proceeds for the show are going to the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Centre. The show opens on 9 May.
