The dam is earmarked for the Hunter Valley, just north of the region dumped minister Milton Orkopoulos represented. The dam, worth an estimated $342-million,

would supply Newcastle and the Central Coast where water is scarce. Six people have lived to tell the tale of a frightening light plane crash on a West Australian holiday island. Their aircraft broke in half. Just two of the passengers seriously injured. The twin-engine plane had just left Rottnest Island airstrip at 2:30 yesterday afternoon when it suddenly banked and crashed

in the salt flats at the end of the runway. Police and rangers on duty nearby watched in horror. And then there was this big thump, no continuing crash just a thump, and then we heard one of the girls screaming.

Three men and three women were on board. Four of them thrown clear as the aircraft's fuselage broke almost completely in half on impact. All them were in shock, varying degrees of shock but all seemed very happy to be on the planet that's for sure. A man and a woman were trapped in the rear of the plane. Emergency crews fearing the worst as they used hydraulic cutting gear to free the pair.

When you have a look at the aircraft you can see how amazing it is that anybody actually got out and they all managed to walk out once we got them out. Incredibly, their wounds weren't life-threatening. She has head injuries. He suffered deep lacerations to both legs. They were both airlifted to Perth. Devastated family members on hand as they arrived at Jandakot Airport.

The crash site's been sealed off. Air Transport Safety Bureau inspectors will start investigations today. Very fortunate that six people have survived, when you have a look at that aircraft, unbelievable. Nick Way, Ten News. Kylie Minogue fans were given a special treat at her Sydney concert last night - U2 frontman Bono making a unexpected appearance. The pair performed one of Kylie's biggest hits

Night two of the 'Showgirl Homecoming' tour and loyal fans filled the Entertainment Centre full of expectation. But they didn't expect this. U2 frontman Bono a surprise bonus singing the duet 'Kids' with our Kylie. Oh my God, unbelievable, amazing. We saw U2 on Saturday and to see this tonight. I'm losing my voice, it's fantastic. You know, I never liked that song before

but tonight I changed my mind, It was just unbelievable, if you missed a U2 concert Kylie Minogue was awesome 'cause you got it all. There's no doubt about it, the showgirl princess definitely keeps the surprises coming and with 18 more shows around Australia who knows what's in store. Rumour has it Robbie Williams might pop in when he gets to Australia for his tour. Meantime, Kylie is going to U2's concert tonight. Their fans might get a bonus too. Angela Bishop, Ten News. Hollywood is abuzz with rumours a celebrity couple are about to tie the knot, that story when the morning news returns. And the Queen remembers the Commonwealth's fallen war heroes.

This program is captioned live. The family of young car crash survivor Sophie Delezio

is angered by reports this morning that their daughter is facing a new, life-threatening medical condition. The 5-year-old, who almost died when she was struck by a car

at a Sydney pedestrian crossing earlier this year, was reported to have bleeding on the brain by a women's magazine. The family rejects those claims, saying her recovery is going well. Last Thursday, Sophie happily helped open a new, highly specialised operating theatre at Westmead Children's Hospital. The Queensland Medical Board's case against disgraced surgeon Jayant Patel resumes today. The board laid charges against Dr Patel in December last year over his clinical treatment of patients at Bundaberg Hospital and allegations he misled the board about his registration in Queensland. If found guilty, he could be fined $100,000 and face permanent de-registeration both here and overseas. Tens of thousands of litres of water has poured from a burst main damaging a business and home in Melbourne. Part of the road caved in as the water flowed out of the ground and into neighbouring buildings. Authorities have been criticised for not responding quickly enough. 40 minutes ago - they didn't turn up still. And I'm waiting when my house will be flooded fully. I don't know what to do. The water was finally turned off but there's concern the building's foundations may have been permanently damaged. A Vietnam veteran has reacted angrily to Jake Kovco's name being included on Australia's war memorial honour roll.

Barry Billing believes the wall should remember those killed in action. Private Kovco died after being shot in the head with his own handgun in April. His family says it's hurt by Mr Billing's comments, pointing out Private Kovco was serving his country at the time of his death. The Queen has led a Remembrance Sunday ceremony in central London. She was joined by politicians and diggers, honouring people from around the Commonwealth who lost their lives in war. Remembrance Sunday still Britain's official day of remembrance

despite the growing attention which is now paid to Armistice Day. GUNSHOT BIG BEN BONGS At 11:00 a gun on Horse Guards Parade signalled the start of the national two minutes silence. BIG BEN BONGS 'THE LAST POST' The Queen placed her wreath of red poppies against the Cenotaph

in remembrance of the 1,700,000 men and women from the Commonwealth who died in the world wars and perished in conflicts since. A Prime Minister whose time is likely to be remembered for a war to which he committed Britain's forces laid a wreath for the final time. On a balcony above, Prince William. In a few weeks he will be a commissioned officer in the British Army. Then, after the official wreath laying, the parade was turned over to the veterans. And marching with the old soldiers who survived war, some of the families of those men who did not. Towards the end of the march-past a group of war widows, some whose remembrances from a past generation, others whose loss is all too recent, from Iraq or Afghanistan. A reminder on this Remembrance Sunday of the huge sacrifice which young servicemen are still called upon to make. Airports across India have been put on high security alert following a terror warning. Intelligence officials say they uncovered plans to hijack a plane bound for Europe or the US.

As a result, authorities have ordered fresh security checks and extra frisking of passengers. The FBI say they were warned about the hijacking in an anonymous email. Hundreds of protesters in Germany have sabotaged a railway in an attempt to stop a train carrying nuclear waste. Activists suspended themselves above the track and blockaded the route with bits of wood, slowing the train from reaching a storage facility

in the north of the country. Police eventually used water canon to disperse the demonstration and clear the track. Madonna's adoption battle is expected to continue in court today. Legal proceedings had been delayed to give lawyers time to prepare their case. Human rights groups are challenging the adoption because they say Madonna flouted local Malawi laws. The pop icon and film-maker husband Guy Ritchie

have been given temporary custody of one year-old David Banda, but have so far failed to secure full-term adoption. Madonna says she's done nothing wrong. Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes's wedding has become one of Hollywood's best-kept secrets, but now Italians think they know where the couple will tie the knot. It's believed the actors have booked out a castle on the banks of Lake Como for their big day. Could this be the castle where 'Top Gun' will soon become 'Top Groom'? Tom Cruise. Tom Cruise stays. The word is spreading fast in Bresciano, a medieval town outside of Rome overlooking a volcanic lake. Reports in a Roman newspaper set off a rush of journalists, and the castle, usually open to the public, has been closed until the end of the month. (Speaks Italian) No filming or questions allowed as to why, says this woman, at a ticket office. In town, locals notice unusual police activity

outside the Mayor's office, and the aristocratic owners of the castle asked that the piazza below the main entrance be closed off to traffic on November 18, the date Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes are believed to have set to tie the knot. The Mayor insists it's not the first time the piazza has been cleared of traffic. She acknowledges that Tom Cruise is every Italian woman's dream, herself included. So the town can not be caught off-guard. (Speaks Italian) "So many women lust after an international star like Tom Cruise," she says, "and it's also an opportunity for the world "to get to know our town." But this could all be a publicity stunt. True or not, locals are bracing for what could be the largest party they've ever seen. "I'll be staking out the castle from the night before," she says. Her mother even gave her permission to skip school for a day. The rumour mill suggests the wedding will be a 3-day affair, a rehearsal dinner on the 16th, a Catholic wedding the next day, and a final ceremony on November 19.

But, wait, a Catholic wedding?

They're currently on a Caribbean island where it's believed they're planning to tie the knot. Tabloid reports say they've spent nearly $4 million on the lavish affair. The idyllic island is a popular destination for celebrities and the super rich. Still to come - cashing in your sick leave - the new employee rules, when the morning news returns.

No-one was hurt, but around 50 crews are still battling the blaze, one of the biggest the city has seen. United States politicians are divided over a timetable to bring their troops home from Iraq. The Democrats say they'll push for a phased withdrawal to begin in four to six months while Republicans worry that an early withdrawal will spell chaos for the region. And the family of car crash survivor Sophie Delezio is denying reports she's facing a new, life-threatening medical condition. A women's magazine said the 5-year-old, who has survived two near-fatal car accidents, was thought to have bleeding on the brain. Kazakh journalist Borat, the creation of British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen,

has arrived down-under for the Australian premiere of his movie. He'll walk the red carpet at George Street in Sydney at 6 pm. But his first stop was Bondi Beach.

It's the Kazakh journalist's first visit to Australia and he's very keen to lap up as much of our culture as he can. Borat. Angela. Welcome to Australia. Very nice be here, Australia. Oh, yeah, very nice. Hello, gypsy girls. He's here for the Australian premiere of his movie, 'Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan'. When will the journalists come to interview me? This is me. You are a journalist? Angela from Channel Ten. Journalist like you. Ah, but you are a woman. Yes, they allow that here. They don't allow that in Kazakhstan? We say to let a woman be a journalist is like to let the monkey fly a plane. Very dangerous! Woah! You are very strong! Oh, very nice. You have a nice physique. Very sexy man. Thank you. How much? How much for this one? (All laugh) It will not take me long to finish. Are you married? Are you looking for a wife? I... My wife is dead. High five! She was boring.

She was shot by a hunter who mistook her for a bear.

Yeah, she had much hair on back and arm. I'm very sorry to hear that. How devastating for you. It was nice. I like to find new wife. If there are anybody watching who want come with me to Kazakhstan, I will give you two red shoes that I removed from the corpse of my last wife. But if you cheat on me I will crush you. What do you want? To say hello. How much? I will not make a deal.

I will make a deal with your husband. How much? How much? How much? Not so much. (All laugh) What she do? Why is she holding this? She's taking a picture of you. (All laugh) Oh, very nice. I cannot believe! Here are some nice lifesavers, Bondi lifesavers. Ah, very good. Yes, why they wear yellow shirt? They are sex criminal? (All laugh)

I don't think you're sex criminals, are you? But you help people if they're drowning. Yes. You are here to protect people from shark and, yes, Jew attack? Very good. He's learning quickly about the dangers of the Australian sun... Ah, yes, you will be very burnt. Yes, oh! Ah! OK, OK! Very nice!

..but is also keen to teach us about Kazakhstan. Kazakhstan now is a similar place to Australia, particularly since the reforms. Now women are permitted to travel on the inside of bus. Very nice.

Homosexuals no longer have to wear blue hats. Oh, very modern. And the age of consent have been raised to 11 years old. No doubt he'll be able to teach them some of his new Aussie phrases.

I like say Australian things. "G'day, mate!" Yes? "Put another crustacean on the barbecue." Probably have to go now. Lovely to meet you. Yes, thank you. Nice meet you. And I'm pleased that you've spoken to a female journalist. It's good for you. And we will now make sexy time, or...? Ah, my husband mightn't like that. I can arrange a price with him. That's... Well, we'll talk later. Thank you. OK, thank you very much. Very nice to meet you. See you. Angela Bishop, Ten News. Now for a look at the national weather.

for this weekend's Test against Ireland prior to news of the injury. Despite the win, the coach had been unhappy with the Australia's performance on Saturday, describing it as their worst performance since he began coaching the side this year. A multiple celebration for Australian Champ Car driver Will Power - his first-ever podium finish, in the Mexico Grand Prix, wrapped up the rookie of the year honours.

A spectacular start to the Grand Prix of Mexico, the final Champ Car event for 2006. Once racing resumed, Team Australia began collecting the awards.

Will Power finished with the record of clocking the fastest aggregate lap time around each circuit this season. Wet conditions made for evasive action, Power remaining in control to the chequered flag for his debut on the podium. We've just got stronger and stronger as the year's gone on and to finish up rookie of the year here and also getting a podium is just excellent. Team Australia hopes to re-sign Power for next season. The streets of Beijing hosted the A1 Grand Prix.

Aussie Alan Jones once ruled the world in Formula One, and his young charges are now making their mark in the second season of A1. COMMENTATOR: Team Australia looking for a podium here. They had a podium with Ryan Briscoe driving for them at the start of the season. Karl Reindler keeping his machine in control, race leader Jeroen Bleekemolen from the Netherlands not so fortunate. While some cars limped home, a bunfight for fourth saw Canada knocked out in the last lap.

Italy a runaway winner from Great Britain, with the jubilant Aussies third. I had no idea. Until the last safety car, when I could check on the radio, I had no idea where I was. I could have been 9th or 10th.

It's a surprise to me but everything's gone well in the race. Anthony Goodridge, Ten News. Justine Henin-Hardenne will finish the year as world tennis number one, after winning her first WTA Championship title. The Belgian star scored a 6-4, 6-3 win over Frenchwoman Amelie Mauresmo, who'd beaten Henin-Hardenne in the finals at the Australian Open and Wimbledon earlier this year.

It's amazing to finish the year number one but most importantly to win the championships. It was a title I'd never had before. While Henin-Hardenne is now on top of the world, Mauresmo will drop from number one to number three. A-League side the Queensland Roar are on the lookout for a new coach after incumbent Miron Bleiberg stepped down last night.

Former Socceroos mentor Frank Farina is the front runner for the job. Bleiberg came under pressure following the Roar's 1-0 loss to Adelaide over the weekend. It's the side's third loss in their last four outings. Meantime, the Newcastle Jets staked a claim for Queensland's spot in the top four

with a 3-1 victory over the Central Coast Mariners. Arsenal has climbed to third on the English Premier League table with a decisive 3-0 victory over Liverpool this morning. The Gunners scored the first of their goals

five minutes before half-time. Two more in the second half sealed it. Liverpool's road woes continuing - their fifth straight away loss. Earlier, Reading bounced back from an early penalty to overcome Tottenham 3-1, snapping a 5-game losing streak.

The Red Bull Air Race flies into Perth this week and pits the world's premier pilots against each other. Recently, Ten reporter Rob Canning was sent up, up and away to examine the intense pressures placed on these athletes. This, here, is the Edge 540. It's agile, aggressive and very, very fast. The series leader uses this, Kirby Chambliss, and in a minute we're going to fire this baby up.

the body finds it very hard to pump oxygen to the brain. Things turn black and white. Pilots in the Red Bull Air Race pull Gs of up to 10. You can go unconscious pulling Gs up to 12. This is extreme, this is intense - through the pylons and Gs, Gs, Gs! It's just extraordinary.
