No for our first check of the

much. A sigh of relief from most

markets as the oil price dropped and Wall Street stocks climbed early.

More on the continuing credit

squeeze. Thank you, Frank. PM Kevin

Rudd will visit Toyota's

headquarters in Nagoya later today,

where the giant car-maker is

expected to announce plans to

produce Australia's first hybrid car. Ten political editor Paul

Bongiorno is travelling with Mr Rudd

and has more. The PM's revealed the

funds for developing a hybrid car in

in Australia, half a billion

dollars worth, which were announced

to come online in three years time,

some of those funds will be made available earlier, possibly as some of those funds will be made

early as tomorrow when Mr Rudd early as tomorrow when Mr Rudd goes

to be announced that hybrid Camry,

OPEC oil-producing countries to

Australian Rising Sun badge has been found among the remains of

soldiers in a mass grave in France.

Archeologists found the collar

badge during the excavation of World War I burial site in Fromelles. It's the first proof

that up to 170 Australian men could

be buried in five of eight pits,

dug by German troops after the

Battle of Fromelles in July, 1916.

Almost 2,000 Australians died in

the fighting. Residents in Perth

are cleaning up after a tornado

ripped through the city, leaving a

million dollar damage bill. Wins

reaching 150 kilometres an hour

pummelled the area, ripping roofs off homes. Dozens of off homes. Dozens of elderly

residents at a nursing home had to

be evacuated. No-one was killed,

it was amazing. Thousands of people

were left without power, emergency

services responded to more than 200

calls for help. John Della Bosca

has been ordered to give a full account of that nightclub incident

to parliament. It's claimed he and

his wife, Labor MP, Belinda Neal,

abused and threatened staff at the Iguana Bar last Friday after Iguana Bar last Friday after they

were asked to move tables. The

Opposition has called for Della

Bosca to be sacked or signed. Meantime, it's believed the

Minister used his contacts to force

staff to drop the allegations. It's

reported that he and his wife are friends with one of the bar's owners. Police are expected to

charge a 15-year-old boy and his charge a 15-year-old boy and

father after an illegal driving

lesson went wrong. A 4-year-old boy

was run down when the teenager lost

parents control in a car park. Distraught

parents are comforted as paramedics

worked to save their little boy.

There's a couple of occasions in

treating him that he could have

passed away and the doctors passed away and the doctors would

concur with that. The doctors were

his parents and family friends. They'd been returning from the

beach when a car hit the child and

pinned him against a timber post.

The driver was too young to be a

learner, aged just 15. believed he was attempting a U-turn learner, aged just 15. It's

but accelerated instead of braking.

His 49-year-old father was

supervising. The child was pined

there for some time before the car

could be removed. The 4-year-old

was airlifted to hospital. He is

now in a stable condition. The teenager's expected to be charged

with unlicensed driving.

Investigators are still deciding

what laws his father broke

supervising the illegal lesson.

Australians are being urged to turn

the volume down or risk becoming

deaf. A new survey's found 60%

people who listen to music through deaf. A new survey's found 60% of

headphones are playing it at unsafe

levels. A spokesman for Australian

Hearing, says the habit can cause

irreversible damage. Almost half of

people aged between 18 and 34 go to

noisy venues and listen to loud

music through headpphones at least

once a week. Chilling details have

emerged of Tokyo's deadly stabbing

spree. New phone video shows the

moments immediately after a man

rammed a truck in to pedestrians,

then leapt out and knifed 17 people,

attack, killing seven. Just before the

attack, he posted an Internet

message saying, "I want to crash a

vehicle in to the crowd and if the

vehicle is wrecked, I will then use

a knife. Goodbye, everyone, it's

time." The 25-year-old killer was

quickly arrested. He told police he

was tired of life. A group of

divers stranded for two days on a

deserted Indonesian island have

spoken publicly about their ordeal.

Swept away in strong currents, they survived 12 hours in shark-infested waters before

scrambling on to a remote island. There,

Queensland's caught Prince has bib

been put on notice from NSW on his return

return to repfooty. He replaces the injured

injured Darren Lockyer and hasn't

pulled on a Maroons jersey for three years. The Blues are

promising a warm welcome back. He's

in the halves and I think regularly most

most teams like to attack towards

the weaker defenders in that area.

So nothing against Princey, but

he'll probably have a bit of

traffic coming his way. Despite

Prince's inclusion, NSW coach Craig

Bellamy believes Karmichael Hunt

will start the match at five-eighth.

Jamie Whincup has become the first

multiple round winner of this

year's V8 supercars series. After

Craig Lowndes took out Round 2,

Whincup is third in the title race

behind Mark Winterbottom and Garth

Tander. Finance now with a very

busy Frank. The credit crunch far

from over. No let-up any time soon.

Borrowers are being warned there's little

little relief in sight. Banks

report they're continuing to feel

the credit squeeze and still paying higher

higher prices for the money they

borrow. Long-term costs have eased

from a couple of months ago but are

well ahead of this time last year.

Because the banks are still paying

more for their money, the cost

continues to be passed on to

consumers. The crunch is taking consumers. The crunch is taking a

bite out of the earnings of our top

investment banks. Local banks

earned a combined $920 million in

fees during the first half of the

year, down $100 million on last

year. That's a slump of about 27%.

And their earnings in the debt And their earnings in the debt and

equity capital market have

plummeted almost by a half.

To the weather details now.

Let's see what's on the front pages

of today's newspapers. The 'Sydney

Morning Herald' has more on the different

different versions of events

involving NSW MP John Della Bosca

at a Central Coast nightclub last at a Central Coast nightclub last

week. Soaring oil prices could derail some of the Rudd Government's Government's economic reforms

proposals. And more on PM Kevin

Rudd's visit to Japan where he's

unveiled plans to stop the spread

of nuclear weapons. Now I'm looking

forward to this one - forward to this one - spectacular

jewellery goes under the hammer in London. Details shortly.

Wall Street -- somewhat unexpected

drop in crude oil price.

The bleak outlook from big business. Thank you. Archeologists have

uncovered proof that Australian

soldiers are among the dead in a

mass grave in France. They've found

badge during excavation. Ten's

Europe correspondent has more. The

dig team here in Fromelles have

made what they are describing as a

momentous discoverae definitive

proof that Australian World War I

soldiers are buried here in the

pits behind me. They found a Rising

Sun collar badge, an iconic symbol

of the Australian armae badges

diggers would have been wearing

during the Battle of Fromelles in

1916. Some of those diggers it now

seems certain were buried here in Fromelles

Fromelles by the Germans in the days following that battle.

Unequivocally Australian. It's

identifiable as the badge worn by

all Australian soldiers. It's

highly likely many of the highly likely many of the badges

that were on Australian soldiers

here were taken by trophies by the

Germans. There is the element of

luck the odd spray one has been

left behind. The project will

continue until Friday but the

archeologists have found the

remains at least 30 individual soldiers with nationality now confirmed with the latest discovery, the next question is identification.

It's always been a long-term goal

to give the soldiers buried here names on individual headstones but

identification will be difficult,

if not impossible.

Kevin Rudd will today visit

Toyota's headquarters in Nagoya

where it's expected he'll announce

plans to produce Australia's first
