Police claim to have found over 2 litres of methadone kept in small bottles, an amount that can't be owned by anyone except for a hospital. It has been a very complex investigation and a very distressing investigation for all concerned. In the magistrate's words, this house was a supermarket of drugs,

which he said with four infants in the house bordered on the ridiculous.

There are fears millions of people stuck in gridlocked traffic, as they try to flee Hurricane Rita, could be driving straight into the eye of the storm. The unpredictable Rita is expected to make landfall tomorrow. The race to outrun Hurricane Rita stalls as almost 2 million people try to escape America's fourth-largest city.

My daughter only has a half a tank and my other daughter only has half a tank.

So I don't know. I don't even know if we can find a place to stay. It's just terrible. Traffic is backed up for 160km. We'll just make the best of it - stay prayerful and get out of town, really. Many motorists have been on the road since yesterday,

taking 16 hours to travel less than a 100km. Despite stifling heat, some are pushing their cars to go the extra mile. With most petrol stations now out of fuel, hundreds of motorists are now finding themselves stranded on jammed highways. And now Rita is headed their way. She's turned east, towards the Texas-Louisiana border, onto a collision course with millions of evacuees.

Now a Category 4, she's the same strength as Katrina was when she destroyed New Orleans, and in the past 24 hours has grown in size. But unlike with Katrina, authorities are reacting swiftly. Officials at every level of government are preparing for the worst. Mandatory evacuations are in force across two states, with buses on stand by for anyone without a car.

New Orleans survivors are reliving the horror of just a few weeks ago. I lost my bag with all my clothes. Only thing I got is what I got on now. Houston and surrounding areas are now ghost towns, where it is calm before the storm. But it's raining in New Orleans, with fears it could flood again. Rita may reintensify to a Category 5 before she hits, bringing with her the threat of tornadoes. Landfall is expected early Sunday morning. In Houston, Texas, Leisa Goddard-Roles, Ten News. A Royal Show stunt has gone wrong in Melbourne. A rocketman has come back to Earth with a thud and he's lucky to escape serious injury. He's been widely promoted as this year's main attraction at the Royal Show, but late today Rocketman's claim to fame came crashing down.

The 35-year-old Texan, Dan Shlund,

lay injured on the ground for some time before his helpers came rushing to his aid, finding it difficult to turn the jet packs off. A bruised and battered Rocketman then stood, cheered on by the crowds. He is OK. We were just joking about what if he ran out of fuel and hit the deck, and then he did!

He seemed to lose it and overcompensate and spiral a bit and then he hit the deck. It's not known what went wrong but the incident is being investigated. There are also concerns an ambulance crew was not on stand-by inside the arena,

where moments beforehand the canon girl performed her stunt. Usually there's someone from St John's around somewhere.

Ambulances and first aid, Red Cross's and first aid are on the grounds 24 hours a day. The first aid people were out there with him

I would say within 1.5 to 2 minutes. Rocketman meanwhile will live to fly another day, but not tonight. Before he took off, I thought, I would love to have one of those but not now. Mignon Henne, Ten News. After the break... This is a matter for State governments. ..why the Treasurer's passing the buck on rising fuel prices.

And... When people in cars are driving towards us there's a very big chance we're going to wander in their path. ..the cold hard facts on why truck drivers are demanding shorter hours and more money but why aren't all their colleagues backing them? If you're not happy with it mate - get out.

CHILD: Kids rule this week at Kmart

The Federal Government still says there is nothing it can do to ease the strain at the petrol pump, despite a massive budget windfall. Treasurer Peter Costello has confirmed there's $4.4 billion left over in Government coffers. But he says it's up to the States to cut petrol prices by giving up some of the GST. This is a matter for State governments.

All I'm saying is there is one State government that does, and that's Queensland, and there are five that don't The Prime Minister insists any serious cut to Federal petrol taxes would cripple the economy. Desperate truck drivers are threatening more blockades to publicise the impact high fuel prices are having on their livelihoods. They struck last night on one of Australia's busiest highways, tying up traffic for more than nine hours. It was a wildcat blockade that caught police by surprise.

A group of truckies angry over spiralling fuel prices chose the bridge at Macksville on the NSW north coast to make a stand. Several truckies using their rigs to block the Pacific Highway and threatening to dig in.

We're standing for our rights.

We need some more money for what we're doing. We're underpaid and not making any money. With the highway closed

it wasn't long before hundreds of vehicles were queuing on both sides. Police trying to negotiate a resolution. But the rebels were still there at dawn, while other truckies who were caught up in the blockade voiced their anger. If you're not happy with it, mate, get out. Officers forced to keep the opposing factions apart. There was one arrest. A truck driver who refused to move his rig was taken into custody and later issued with an infringement notice. The highway eventually reopening just after 8am. I don't endorse actions that break the law

The truckies say they're being pushed to the limit and having to drive longer hours, and that makes the roads more dangerous for everyone. When the people in cars are driving towards us, there is a very big chance we're going to wander in their path. John Hill, Ten News. A testing time for entrants in the World Solar Challenge. The cars undergoing scrutineering before the race starts. Tthe tension is mounting among the teams as they compare notes on their sun-powered technology. Million-dollar machines under the microscope. 22 entrants in this year's World Solar Challenge tested and tweaked to ensure they're roadworthy.. 1, 2, 3. ..and abiding by the rules. And a lot of the teams will stretch the envelope a little bit.

And we're here to make sure that is fine, but they don't exceed the rules. The 3,000km trek from Darwin to Adelaide has attracted teams from 11 countries. The race starts Sunday, but it's already a battle to ensure the cars are technically sound. Every component is scrutinised and recorded, from weight, size, driver's eyeline - even the speed at which they exit the cars. This is one of the most rigorous checking stations

where the batteries are wired to secure against tampering. That is to ensure they're only recharged by the sun, rather than alternative energy sources during the race. Passing with flying colours - the reigning champs, Dutch team Nuon Solar. Nuna 3 is a totally new car. We've redesigned everything. First the aerodynamic design of the car is much lower than Nuna 1 and 2.

We've also reduced our weight by over 50kg. Their closest rivals, the Aurora team from Victoria, has also made some changes. The car is faster, lighter, we got more solar power, new electrical system.

We took 20kg out of it. At least tomorrow on the track we hope to show it works. But no, it's a better car than last time.

First-time entrant Umicore from Belgium just wants to finish. But we will do our best and look at our own car. And if we arrive in Adelaide, we will be very happy. As does this solo German driver. He's attended every race since 1987 in his home-made car. The atmosphere, I mean all the people, you know? I believe in sun, in sun power, so that is the right place for people like that. You find all the crazy guys here. After the break... I'm also able to do more - feel stronger, more energised, but also feel emotionally more in control. ..a hospital study shows the stunning impact of exercise on cancer patients recovering from surgery. What supermodel Kate Moss has to say about the trouble she's in. And in 'Sports Tonight' will Parramatta star Nathan Hindmarsh make a shock return against the Cowboys? MAN: Listen up, people! This is a real opportunity.

Don't miss out, people! Proof tonight, exercise can boost cancer recovery and help relieve the side effects of treatment. A study has shown regular physical activity could even prevent patients from suffering a relapse. Cassandra Stipanisev was a busy, active working mum

when she was diagnosed with breast cancer two years ago.

But her treatment took its toll, and as with most patients, getting back into an exercise routine became a struggle. After I originally had the operation, I tapered off, so I would just walk, but I wasn't all that interested. I just wanted to get on with my life and be happy I was here. Cassandra joined almost 600 recovering patients in a study into the effects of exercise after cancer treatment. And it showed many were missing out on a range benefits. To give yourself some sense of control, some routine, to be able to look forward and do some positive things for your health is always going to be beneficial,

both psychologically and physiologically. Those who maintained exercise before, during and after treatment had a speedier recovery, while inactive patients struggled with everyday activities. If you've got treatment, you've had surgery, you've not moved your arm after surgery, and you're not beginning to mobilise your shoulder again, you're going to have difficulties with simple things like brushing your hair, fastening your bra, even just picking up your children. New research is also starting to show

exercise not only helps prevention and recovery,

but may also help prevent a recurrence of the disease. It's hoped the results will help inspire and educate more breast cancer patients about the benefits of exercise. I'm also able to do more. I feel stronger and more energised, but also I feel emotionally in control. Jacinda Birch, Ten News. To finance news and Tom Piotrowski at CommSec,

While stopping short of admitting she has used cocaine and crack, she's issued a statement taking full responsibility for her actions and accepting there are personal issues she needs to address. Moss says her behaviour has reflected badly on her family, friends and co-workers. The mother of one has lost multi-million dollar contracts with several fashion houses since news of the drug allegations broke. The weather's next and then it's Sports Tonight with Ryan Phelan. And Ryan what's the latest on the AFL Grand Final? Well Charmaine, both sides have wrapped up their preparations after the parade this afternoon.

Things are all good for the Swans. Not so good for West Coast. Goal sneak Phil Matera will be given until the last possible moment

to prove his fitness for tomorrow's Grand Final. In my eyes, I'm confident and good to go so we'll just have to see what happens. Sydney coach Paul Roos describes his team's preparation as perfect. They're ready to go. The Wests Tigers get some good advice ahead of the preliminary final with St George Illawarra in the NRL. What did Lote Tuqiri tell Scott Prince? The day's sport is next. at Bunnings Warehouse. Heavy duty work light - just $39. only $46.80. a low $34.90. are just the beginning. To the national weather for the start of the weekend.

On the synoptic chart, a trough is moving over the south-west into South Australia and another weak trough is building in the east. Tomorrow looks like bringing a few showers to Cairns, mainly clear skies over Brisbane and Sydney, late showers for Canberra and Hobart, drizzle that might clear Melbourne in time for the AFL Grand Final, rain developing around Adelaide, then mostly sunny skies for Perth, Alice Springs and the Top End. Some breaking news - and a bus filled with people fleeing from Hurricane Rita has caught alight in the traffic gridlock has caught alight in the traffic gridlock, killing one person. The tragedy happened not long ago on America's Interstate 45. Apart from the one person killed in the inferno, 12 others have been injured. And that's the latest from Ten News.
