A large storm is sweeping across Sydney, hammering parts of the city with rain, shaking it with thunder. A cluster of storm cells stretching from Goulburn across Warragamba Dam and as far north as the Central Coast rolled in from the west a short time ago. The bureau is warning that hail is a strong possibility in the Bankstown area within the next 15 minutes.

Sydney airport is also expecting some disruption to flights as a result of the wild weather. We'll keep you updated throughout the bulletin. Outrage over a leaked video revealing the errors that led to a friendly fire incident in Iraq. The cockpit footage shows the moment American pilots fired on a coalition convoy in 2003, killing a British soldier, and their reaction once they realised their mistake.

We'll have a full report on that story later this news hour. An astronaut in a bizarre love triangle is tonight on bail for attempted murder. Wearing a nappy and a wig, the mother of three drove halfway across America to kidnap and kill her love rival.

On 4 July last year, Lisa Marie Nowak was an American hero, part of the crew on board space shuttle 'Discovery'. Today she was in a prison uniform and shackles in court. MAN: Do you swear the information you are about to give is true and correct? Yes. Nowak is a married mother of three, but police say she fell in love with fellow astronaut Bill Oefelein only to learn there was another woman in his life, Air Force captain Colleen Shipman. What we have appears a desperate woman who wants to have a conversation with the other woman. To do that, Nowak drove 1,500km from Houston, Texas, to Orlando, Florida, wearing a nappy - just as she'd done on the space shuttle - to save time on toilet breaks. Obviously she wanted to make that trip as expeditiously as she could. She tracked Shipman to an airport carpark, and, when she refused to talk to her, attacked her with capsicum spray. Police records show the rocket scientist meant business. She had a steel mallet, a knife, a BB gun, garbage bags and gloves as well as love letters to Oefelein and directions to the woman's home. Having a talk with the other woman would be reasonable, and that is what she told them she was doing. But police believe she was planning to abduct and kill the other woman. Our primary concern is her health and wellbeing and safety, and we are down here supporting her like we would any employee. Nowak has been released on bail but must wear an anklet so authorities know her every move. In the United States, Leisa Goddard-Roles, Ten News. A Sydney teenager has been charged with murder over a vicious pub bashing that claimed the life of a Sudanese refugee. A court was told the victim hit his head on the footpath

after being punched in the face. A brawl outside the Collector Tavern in Parramatta in mid-December began as just another pub fight. But 26-year-old Sudanese refugee Geoffrey Taban was punched and hit his head on the footpath - a blow that led to his death in hospital a week later. Now detectives have arrested 18-year-old Julius Faleomo, charging him with Mr Taban's murder. Police alleged in court the victim fought with his ex-girlfriend on the dancefloor. Mr Taban and a friend were thrown out of the pub. Once on the street, a group of Islanders and Middle Eastern men emerged from the hotel,

allegedly attacking them. Prosecutor Craig Pullen claimed the violence was completely unprovoked. He said:

Faleomo's parents sat stunned as they heard allegations that Geoffrey Taban collapsed after being hit, smashing his head on the footpath,

fracturing his skull and suffering brain damage. In a record of interview, Faleomo allegedly told police his involvement in the brawl was restricted to defending himself from attack. His lawyer, Greg Willis, said alcohol was involved in the attack and it would be up to the Crown to prove that Faleomo threw the fatal punch. Geoffrey Taban's distraught family took his body home for burial in Sudan just before Christmas. John Hill, Ten News. An update now on our story from last night about the diggers turfed out of their Anzac Day reunion venue. Members of the RAAF 454 and 459 squadrons were told the pub where they've held their reunion for the last 25 years

wouldn't take their booking this year. After their story ran on Ten News last night, alternative offers started coming in - the Commercial Travellers' Club in Sydney's MLC Centre the first to offer their venue.

The management of the Glenmore Hotel has since backed down, saying the diggers can make the booking

as they've done in previous years. But the squadron members are considering whether, in light of the trouble, it might be time for a change. A third teenager dies after a horror car crash in the State's north - that's next. Also tonight, privacy concerns as debate begins on the Federal Government's 'smart card'. And Sydney's tourism boom - the Barmy Army helps a record year for visitors.

A third teenager has died after last week's horror ute crash. The ute crashed in Warialda, in the State's north-west, on Friday, being driven on a joy-ride by a 14-year-old girl with six other teenagers and a 32-year-old man on board. A 14-year-old girl who was being treated at Randwick Children's Hospital has now died. A 13-year-old girl died at the scene and a 13-year-old boy died in hospital on Saturday. The teenage driver has been interviewed by police. An assurance from Canberra tonight Australia's new smart card won't become an ID card by stealth. One Government MP warning it fails the "Nazi test". This is the card the Government says will stop Australian families from drowning in a sea of red tape.

Instead of sitting around that kitchen table, filling in endless forms, they may be able to go down to the local park and play with their kids for once. Medicare, Veterans Affairs, and Centrelink pension cards some of the 17 to be replaced by the new smart card due to be fully rolled out within three years. One step closer today

as the Government introduced the access card legislation despite ongoing privacy concerns from its own back bench. I haven't got my doubts about it but I'm nervous about it. Former minister Bronwyn Bishop expressed fears in the party room the card could be used to oppress some groups, linking it to the Nazi era. I asked the question, would it have assisted at that time the dreadful deeds being done, and I think that's for me an important test. The Government promises privacy safeguards with the power in the hands of the people - able to choose whether details such as date of birth are included. There is no reference and no need for any reference to your religion or to your ethnic background. The Minister has labelled the new access card an "anti-ID card" - pointing to penalties of five years jail for anyone who asks for the card to be produced as ID. Still, some are unconvinced because of the amount of information the card will hold. The biometric photo and the microchip will hold more information than was ever proposed with the Australia Card. The Government claims the information is essential to cutting fraudulent social services claims. Brad Hodson, Ten News. And Premier Morris Iemma has introduced the forgotten issue of the election campaign today - health,

with a tour of Westmead Hospital. The excuse for this election picture opportunity in the maternity ward? Meeting high school students enrolled in a hands-on work experience program for those interested in nursing, with credits awarded towards the HSC. It's a hands-on work experience program The Premier also re-announced a $2 billion redevelopment plan for five major hospitals, including Auburn and Liverpool. Sydney's tourism industry has risen from the Ashes. It's just notched up a record season, all thanks to the Barmy Army. Cafes are crowded, hotels are filling up, and there's barely enough room to walk. Tourism is booming in Sydney and the latest figures show it's all thanks to the Barmy Army.

They were so fantastic that business boomed, like, 100% and their joking and laughing of the cricket made the whole image a whole lot more better.

The red and white invasion has seen Sydney's tourism industry rise from the ashes, delivering a record end to 2006. Well, the Barmy Army didn't help the English cricket team but they certainly helped our economy and it looks like we've had a terrific January. The cricket-led recovery poured millions of dollars into local businesses, with most reporting a huge jump in turnover. Definitely the Barmy Army were, you know, they've got a good exchange rate

so they've got the money to spend. They're all happy. We've got sun here as well. The UK is still one of our biggest markets. Visitor numbers are up by more than 10% on last year. It's freezing cold back home

and it's great to go and get some sun. It's really good. You see and hear so much about Sydney, you just want to come here and experience it for yourself. With two of the world's largest cruise ships due to dock in the next couple of weeks, Sydney's bumper summer is expected to continue.

There'll be over 7,000 tourists arriving and they'll all be checking into hotels around the city. It's a positive trend and it's an opportunity now for the economy of Sydney to grow and we're certainly excited by the numbers that we're seeing.

This program is captioned live. Cyclone Nelson has lost strength after crossing the coast in Far North Queensland. Although it's been downgraded, there are now fears of a second destructive storm on the other side of the State. With memories of the past 12 months fresh in their minds, the people of Innisfail are being forced back into town to stock up on essentials. The problem is, the shelves are bare. There's nothing here for us to stock up on. There's no bread, there's no potatoes, no nothing. With all roads north cut off by the flooding being generated by ex-tropical cyclone Nelson,

the region is once again on its own. I really don't want to go through another one, so... if it comes, it comes, there's nothing you can do. The Innisfail community is back in familiar territory. Just came into town to get some tarps. Bit of a leaky roof, and it's nearly a cyclone again. Innisfail's emergency services committee bunkering down to prepare for the worst. We've also intentionally got people stood down at the moment to take a bit of a rest to consider what be happening in the next few days.

The SES doing what they can before the big rains come again. While today has been just another typical wet season day here in Innisfail,

to a waiting market. Simon Hooper, Ten News. Prosecutors have outlined their case in Norfolk Island's historic murder trial. They say there can be no doubt the accused, Glenn McNeill, acted ferociously, intending to kill Sydney woman Janelle Patton. Sporting a fresh crewcut for his appearance before the jury, Glenn McNeill walks into court with trademark calm. His family among the first to arrive for the opening addresses. And for the first time since the case began, Carol Patton and her son Mark were committed to watch. Relieved it's under way, because it's been a very long wait through the week - we've been here a week. It proved a gruelling experience,

with prosecutors outlining Janelle Patton's violent final moments in 2002. Glenn McNeill claims he accidentally struck Janelle with his car while high on cannabis. He says he put her in his car's boot and took her home

but panicked when she regained consciousness. He heard her moaning, he could hear her in the boot and into the house, so he grabbed a fish-filleting knife and stabbed her just to make sure she was dead. Then he wrapped the body in plastic and drove right past the police station to a bushland reserve to dump it. McNeill allegedly kept the murder a secret until his arrest last year. McNeill's alleged confession to police

will be shown to the jury after the defence lost a fight to have it excluded. The taped admissions are expected to form a crucial part of the Crown case. But the defence points out they can only be accepted as admissions if there is evidence to support them. Until such a time, McNeill remains an innocent man. The case is now being heard by a jury of just 11 after a woman juror claimed she was medically unfit to serve.

On Norfolk Island, Amber Muir for Ten News. Another letter bomb has gone off near London, a day after a similar explosion caused panic in the city. Two office workers were slightly injured in the latest blast,

at an accountancy firm.

Police are investigating a possible link between the two incidents. Both companies worked with the police traffic unit and investigators believe the letter bombs could be the work of a disgruntled motorist. Graphic images on cigarette packets appear to be having the desired affect on smokers. A survey revealing the grim warnings about health hazards are making people change their habits. Once considered glamorous, the ugly side of smoking is now a burning issue. Lung cancer, heart disease, emphysema, peripheral vascular disease. A survey of 15,000 smokers in four countries has showed graphic pictures on cigarette packets are proving most effective in influencing the behaviour of smokers.

While the study was conducted before images were made compulsory in Australia, local researchers say the replacement of written warnings is reaping rewards. Text-based warnings are noticed as much as graphic warnings but they're not processed by people, they don't get into people's heads in the same way graphic warnings do. Smokers were surveyed on their awareness of the messages, changes in their understanding of the risks of smoking, and asked what impact the images had on their behaviour.

These graphic health warnings are the right way to go. They're helping smokers to think more about quitting.

The survey showed warnings on cigarettes proved least effective in the United States.

The study noting messages there have not been updated since 1984. That, according to experts, means campaigns must continuously change, the current one receiving a mixed reception by smokers. Would that impact on your decision to smoke? It should, but it doesn't.

Actually, it does, yes.

I don't want to see myself like this. But you still have a cigarette in your hand. This is my last cigarette, then. Allan Raskall, Ten News. BHP shares boosted by an $8 billion half-year profit - that's next. Also, the leaked tape revealing the mistakes

The so-called dancing detective grilled at the inquest over claims he didn't bother interviewing some witnesses he knew personally. And a female astronaut in a bizarre love triangle involving a fellow astronaut is on bail for the attempted murder of her love rival. It's alleged married mother of three Lisa Nowak drove halfway across America to kidnap and kill the other woman. More now on the leaking of a military video revealing American pilots opening fire on a British convoy in Iraq. The friendly-fire bungle killed a 25-year-old British soldier but the Pentagon tried to keep the cockpit recording under wraps. British troops pushing into Iraq were deeply worried about being bombed by the Americans. At the start of the invasion, more had been killed by US friendly fire than by the Iraqis. This tape, kept secret for years, exposes one such incident. Tragically, the American pilots misinterpret orange markings which should have identified vehicles on the ground as British.

The attack was pressed by A-10 tankbusters like these. The pilots, Air National Guardsmen from Idaho, with no previous combat experience. More importantly, perhaps, they'd been given little, if any, training on how to recognise British vehicles, even though the UK was one quarter of the ground force. The moment of attack. Lance Corporal Matty Hull, 25 years old, was killed, four of his comrades wounded. But, as the tape also makes clear, the pilots are devastated by what they have done.

While a coroner will now see this tape, there is zero chance the pilots themselves will be required to give evidence. A big day in finance, with interest rates kept on hold, bumper profits announced and yet another record for the share market.

It's business as usual for Kylie Minogue. A week after her spilt from boyfriend Olivier Martinez, she's put her personal issues aside, opening her own exhibition at London's prestigious Victoria and Albert Museum. They say a picture is worth a thousand words. In London, the first snap of a newly single Kylie could be worth a thousand pounds. The paparazzi have been chasing Kylie following her split with Olivier Martinez, her partner of four years. But tonight she put on a brave front. I'm just going to say that I'm here tonight and having a wonderful time, thinking about my friend also, and he's wished me all the best for tonight, so...yeah. It's all good. Kylie's no stranger to the paparazzi

and would have known that, tonight, interest in her would be frenzied but she insisted on opening this exhibition, which is dedicated to showcasing her

as one of the world's great fashion icons. The exhibition is a wardrobe of memories ranging from the denim overalls

Kylie wore as a teenager in 'Neighbours' to one of her most memorable outfits, those gold hotpants.

They're very confronting at this level. Organisers say the exhibition shows how Kylie has developed into one of the world's great style icons. The British public, though, love her for so much more than just her fashion sense. She's been adopted by England, really, although she's Australian, because her career really was formed here. I think people are glad to see her back and kind of being the showgirl that she is. In London, Rachel Smalley, Ten News.

No, a suddenly in-form England cricket team believe they won't need him to beat us in the one-day finals. More shortly. Also, Denmark hammers the Socceroos. And one-legged skiing champ Michael Milton switches to cycling with instant success.

This program is captioned live. The turmoil over the fate of Sydney FC coach Terry Butcher continues. The club is tonight refusing to confirm or deny reports they've already sacked Butcher. An undermanned Socceroos

have suffered their first-ever defeat in London, going down 3-1 to Denmark in an international friendly. Jon-Dahl Tomasson landed a double for the Danes, while the Socceroos had two first-half goals disallowed. The two teams meeting on neutral ground, but this international had all the hallmarks of a Socceroo home game. (All sing 'Advance Australia Fair')

The Aussie fans in full voice with Jimmy Barnes, but they were quickly silenced in the fifth minute. COMMENTATOR: A shot over the top of the goalkeeper and into the back of the net! And Denmark have the lead. A defensive mistake from Mile Sterjovski allowing Denmark to convert in superb fashion. A Josip Skoko free kick appeared to earn the Aussies the equaliser. And headed into the back of the net by Michael Thwaight. The goal controversially disallowed for a foul in the box, but there were no doubts about the Danes' second. It's a free header, and it's 2-0 for the Danes! And Australia's understrength and inexperienced defence looked on as spectators for Denmark's third. Man free, and that's three! Jon-Dahl Tomasson's second of the night. Exposing these younger players to international football, this is where they can learn by their mistakes. Australia's night of anguish continued - this time an offside ruling denying the Socceroos. Definitely at least one of the two was a goal. We heard after that they weren't offside. Sterjovski had a chance for redemption early in the second, but it took until the 85th minute for Australia to get on the board. It's Brett Emerton over the top and into the net. The stand-in skipper nailing a sensational late consolation goal. I thought Australia played well. We created our chances, but we just couldn't put them away. Andrew Brown, Ten News. England will resist the temptation to rush Kevin Pietersen back to Australia for the Tri-Series finals. The suddenly in-form English say they don't need their star batsman for Friday's opening one-dayer at the MCG. For the first time in a long summer, the English tails are up. Back-to-back wins have smiles wide and confidence high ahead of finals time. We've played some very, very good cricket. With a young side, what's the limit? What's the limit of this side? Like I keep saying, with a young side you never know what the limit is. There's a lot of growth in it. If there's a lot of growth, we could upset a lot of top sides. It just goes to show what winning a match does. They've played really well the last couple of games, England. So I'm sure that they'll be looking forward to Friday night as well. Concern still centres on skipper Michael Vaughan. His hamstring is again sore, but is expected to be right for Friday. He just felt it go a little bit, but Dean just wants to make sure it's not a problem that you can feel after you've torn it and gone back and played. But star batsman Kevin Peitersen's return has been put on ice, his broken rib still not up for an SOS down under. No, Kevin Peitersen's not coming down. I don't know where that came down from. Waiting to at last face England is Shane Watson. Back in the national team after a stalled Ashes, he's hopeful his brittle body remains intact.

Why do have to make the most of my

body - everything I put into it and

Cruising towards victory, New Zealand self-destructed to book an early flight home. It was all enough to make a Kiwi cry. She's absolutely sobbing. Tim Hodges, Ten News. The NSW Waratahs have made two changes for Friday's Super 14 clash with the Sharks in Durban. Randwick's Adam Freier will start at hooker, while hard-hitting flanker Beau Robinson is set to make his Super 14 debut from the bench. Coach Ewen McKenzie is expecting an extremely physical contest. We think it's going to be definitely an 80-minute game that will need intensity for the full match, so we've picked guys that can give us that. Lote Tuqiri will celebrate his 50th NSW cap in the Round 2 match. American Natalie Gulbis says she needs to improve dramatically for the ANZ Ladies Masters starting tomorrow. The US glamour girl was a popular figure at today's pro-am at Royal Pines. She admits her high profile brings with it some pressure but not as much as she puts on herself. I think the most pressure is on myself. I mean, this is the beginning of my season, I've worked hard in the off season on my golf game and I have high goals for 2007 and what I want to achieve, so there's where the most pressure is. Tournament favourite Karrie Webb and defending champion Amy Yang also completed their preprations today. One-legged skiing champion Michael Milton has turned to track cycling, with instant success. The Winter Paralympics champion taking out the national 3,000m individual pursuit despite only taking up the event just six months ago. There's some strength in the old leg from all the training that I've been doing for skiing for years and years and from the bike riding I've been doing for the last six months, so all the hard work is certainly there, and I believe there's a lot more potential.
