The Opposition demands an early

state election. How can you justify

the people of NSW with an early

election they want. A mother's

First, the state government is

expected to laugh off a vote of no

confidence in the way of a sex

scandal. It claims the health

minister. Fresh calls for an early

election. The woman at the centre

explains why she spoke out. Josh

Murphy is at Macquarie Street. Is this just old-fashioned revenge?

She began making promises. He said

he would leave his wife and she was

premier should have higher

about the power-broker of becoming

I don't intend to go into that

the most talented political person

in the state, possibly Australia.

He faced the music yesterday. Where

was John Della Bosca today? He made

a brief appearance in Parliament a brief appearance in Parliament

this afternoon and he is staying

with a male friend while visiting

Sydney. There is no sign of his

wife, Belinda Neal. There was only

a short statement from one of the

sons. The minister has not return

stunning twist following

yesterday's fatal police shooting.

We are joined by Evan Batten. The

dead man brother killed a dead man brother killed a

policeman? That's right. We can

reveal the identity. He. He older

brother had been convicted at over

the killing of a police officer. He

was shot to death as he sat in his

Highway patrol car in 2002. Hit him

and his older brother are serving and his older brother are serving

jail terms over that manslaughter.

A what has happened to the 16-year-

old who was arrested? We cannot

reveal his identity for political

reasons. He has been charged with a

string of offences, 15 offences.

They relate to two armed hold-ups

at different hotels. There was a

botched robbery at the Canley Vale

Hotel. That robbery did not end

well. The second robbery was from

the previous night at a Chinese

restaurant. He appeared in court

today. He did not apply for bail.

To heartbroken parents have arrived

from China to help find their son's

killer. The victim's body was

discovered last month near

Wollongong. It had been neatly

packed in a container. It was an

agonising experience. They flew

from China to appeal for help to

solve the murder. The family was

Australia eight years ago and I

have been left with nothing. Not my

son, not anything. 27-year-old Jun

Chen went missing from his

apartment in March. They were

investigating a missing persons

report until last month when his

body was discovered near Mt Ousley.

Police will not reveal anything

about his private life. They are

investigating in the hope of a

motive. They want help from anyone

who saw a white Toyota van. It had

no window at the back. It had no

writing on the site. The than may

about a woman's heavy bleeding

Petah Kimm was a feat mother of two.

She had complications with a third

Witnesses are expected to give

inquest. A dramatic surge in that

road toll has forced the government

to consider a tough approach. The

plan is for more highway patrols. plan is for more highway patrols.

By any measure, the last week has

been horrific with the death toll

described as shocking. The

government admits a new approach is

needed. People out there behaving

stupidly on our roads and getting

himself and others killed. We will

not sit on our hands.

247 people died and we have now 247 people died and we have now

succeeded that by 63 deaths. 12

killed in the last few days. If

speeding seems to be a factor in

most of these accidents. An extra 50 Highway patrol officers are

promised for next year. Additional

numbers of police officers and a

recruitment process and more

vehicles put on the roads targeting

black spots. The government is

speeding and escalating penalties considering hardline sanctions for

for repeat offenders who just don't

get the message. Driving experts

say the answer is education at not

legislation. If the roads are

busier, people are impatient and

they pushed the boundaries and it

is foolish. They will free up

Highway patrol cars from other

duties. Cameras and technologies

cannot pick this up. The air is no

According to new research, there

convinced. But Australian experts aren't

With a 90% initiation rate, more

Aussie mums than almost any other

Western country attempt breast-

feeding after giving birth. But the

retention rates are a different

story. By six months, only 30% of

mums have persisted. One of the

reasons, according to the

Australian Breastfeeding

Association, is the difficulty some

women experience in feeding their

baby, after leaving hospital and

researchers in the UK now think

they know why. A Swansea University

study found an association between

the drugs given to women during

childbirth and reduced breast milk

production. I had injections for

both of my babies and didn't have

any problems with breastfeeding. I

really wanted to breastfeed, so if

I had known the drugs may have

caused problems, Imay not have had

them, yeah. The study focuses on

the drugs oxytocin or ergometrine,

which are given to women to cut the

risk of haemorrhage. But Australian

experts point out, there's no proof

they cause the feeding problems.

That could be as much to do with

the circumstances in which the meds

were used. We do know that if

labour is slow or induced there may

be more stress and that may affect

milk supply. You may then see an

association with oxytocin but it's

not causative. They're keen to

stress the number of lives saved by

preventing blood loss. The

consequences if they don't take

oxytocin could be a lot more serious. For those struggling,

there is a breastfeeding hotline.
