Tonight - an ambulance officer

faces court accused of raping a

woman during a first-aid class. He

will strenuously defend all

allegations. Hospitals consider

cancelling elective surgery as

Swine flu cases surge. We're not

yet at the peak of the epidemic and

it's going to get worse. And

Sydney's noisiest suburb -

residents forced out of their homes

and into hotels. Really bad. I mean,

But first a senior volunteer with

St John Ambulance has been stood

down as he faces rape allegations.

The instructor is accused of

assaulting a young woman during a

first-aid class. As a St Johns

volunteer, Claudio Martinez is volunteer, Claudio Martinez is

supposed to help those in sickness,

distress and danger. But the 41-

year-old today faced Liverpool

Court accused of sexually

assaulting a young woman taking his

first aid class. According to

police, it happened at the

charity's Fairfield headquarters at

a regular evening meeting for

volunteers two weeks ago. It's

alleged Mr Martinez took the woman

into another room, away from the

rest of the class, then touched her

and had sex with her without

consent. Outside court, Martinez

let his lawyer do the talking. He

will strenuously defend all

allegations. St John Ambulance says

it's cooperating with the

investigation. As soon as we found

out, the member was stood down out, the member was stood down

which just means that they're

unable to participate in any St

John activity, or be a John activity, or be a

representative of the organisation representative of the organisation

in any way. They routinely conduct

criminal background checks for all

volunteers and say Martinez didn't

have a record. Police say other

students who attended first aid

courses here may have been

approached in the same way, and

detectives have promised, if they

come forward, their information

will be treated in the strictest of

confidence. We have offered all the

members at the division some

support and there's a small team of

people going out to speak to them

this week. St John has appealed for continued public support. Mr

Martinez remains on bail. His case

returns to court in September.

Daniel Sutton, Ten News. Swine flu

has claimed its fifth life in New

South Wales. It comes as hospitals

are forced to use cardiac bypass

machines as a last-ditch attempt to

save the most severely affected

victims. This is the front-line in

the battle to save critically ill

Swine flu victims. Isolated in

intensive care units, their lungs

are so full of mucus, they're being

kept alive with machinery that is

normally used in open heart surgery.

A machine takes blood from the

veins of the body pumps it through

an oxygenator, puts oxygen into the

blood, then returns their blood to

the heart. It's a way of keeping

alive young people who are going to

get better, if we can keep them

alive long enough. The death toll

from Swine flu continues to climb.

A 55-year-old man died on Saturday

in St George Hospital. The

gentleman that died has got, again,

severe underlying illnesses. There

are now signs the hospital system

is in danger of being overwhelmed

by Swine flu patients. Hospital

emergency departments and wards are

at maximum capacity. The hospitals

are absolutely full of patients

with Swine flu that wards are

having to be closed. with Swine flu that wards are

having to be closed. In a normal

winter 25 cases a day present to

hospital emergency departments, but

that's now spiked to 175 patients a

day as Swine flu takes hold. that's now spiked to 175 patients a day as Swine flu takes hold. With

the health system under stress,

authorities are postponing non-

life-threatening surgery to make

room for an expected surge in Swine

flu patients. And in some hospital

departments, more than 50% of staff

are off work with influenza. Swine

flu is expected to peak next month

with up to one-third of the

population infected. The Australian

Government has an order for vaccine

to cover 10.5 million people if we

need to have two doses. But the

vaccine may not be ready until

October when the flu season's over.

John Hill, Ten News. There's been a

mixed response from consumers to

the petrol price war being waged by

Coles and Woolworths.

Coles and Woolworths. One

politician has likened shopping at

the chains to smoking, but that hasn't stopped Australians grabbing

some cheap petrol. The supermarket

petrol price war has fuelled the

fight over Coles and Woolworths'

dominance of our grocery shopping.

We can't keep going on like this.

This is another that's going to

force independents out of the

marketplace. But it's not been

enough to spur the consumer

watchdog into action. The ACCC says

it's monitoring the promotion. For

three days only, shoppers who spend

$300 on groceries in one go,

receive a petrol discount of 40

cents per litre. I didn't spend

that much but I am going to get

some petrol though. I'll see how

much I get off. Just to go and

spend $300. No, I wouldn't. Others

prefer the alternatives. Cause we

usually shop at ALDI, you'd

probably save that anyway what

you'd pay on fuel. Nationals

Senator Barnaby Joyce has likened

Coles and Woolworths to a bad habit.

I can walk into the majors, you

know, it feels good but it's like

having a smoke - it feels good, but

bad for you in the long term.

Another senator thinks food

labelling standards in our

supermarkets are misleading and

will introduce a bill to put the

Australian back into Australian

made. Nick Xenophon wants to put

the squeeze on producers who take

advantage of loopholes in existing

laws. If we are what we eat, then

we need to know what we eat and at

the moment, food labelling laws in

this country are a joke. What is

the point in me growing an

Australian product and putting it

on the shelf when someone from

Brazil and they undercut me and

mislead the consumer? The Bill will

also target the misuse of words

like 'daily' and 'fresh'. At the

moment, you need both a lawyer and

a magnifying glass to work out at

the supermarket shelves. What

actually is happening at the moment,

laws in this country for food

labelling, are a joke. Murray

McCloskey, Ten News. A perfect

storm' of major building projects

is causing anger and inconvenience

for Rozelle residents and they may

have to put up with it for years. have to put up with it for years.

The noise and vibrations are so bad,

some have been moved into hotel

rooms. It's a suburb shaking to its

very foundations. Major work will

continue around the clock in the

next couple of weeks. It's so bad,

the RTA has offered hotel rooms to

those worst affected, but says its

just 12 homes. Graeme Roache took

up the offer. It was really bad,

really bad. I mean, when your cup

and saucers are rattling in your

cupboards and you feel like your

side wall's about to tumble in on

you. But for Denise Nicholl,

shifting her family isn't practical.

The noise, our bedrooms are at the

very front of the house. So we're

pretty worried and last night we

did hear the noise going on through

the night and it went on until, I'd

say, 4:00 this morning. The cause -

widening works on Victoria road for

the duplication of the Iron Cove

Bridge and a new busway. Despite

RTA promises, huge trucks have been

using tiny local streets. The

biggest issue for me was those

trucks were proceeding up and down

every 5 minutes until midnight on

Sunday evening. It's just the start

- and part of what the mayor calls

a perfect storm of projects - the Sydney metro construction will

overlap, followed by two others -

hammering Rozelle for a decade.

It's a symptom of everything that's wrong

wrong with planning in NSW. Uncoordinated Uncoordinated projects, financially

questionable that have dubious

benefit for the people of NSW but

have a huge impact on residents. A

sensitive Premier rejects the

criticism. Yes, it is being co-

ordinated, yes it is being

monitored and yes, where there is

inconvenience we'll try to minimise

it. The residents here say their

objections are not simply a case of

not in my backyard. They'd be more

understanding, they say, if the

projects themselves made more sense.

They doubt the traffic or transport

benefits. The problem is we don't

believe this is going to solve any

problems at all. Eddy Meyer, Ten

McEwan. It's nearly time for Origin

Will the Blues had the courage to

drive past the hotel? This is so

interesting. Will they do what? For

safety reasons it is not that the

safest place to be if you are

wearing blue. Today the Reds have

steered the blues. It worked for

Steve Mortimer in 1985 to see how

much people hate hacienda and

worked for them. Who knows he may

think it's worth his time going

down the. He is a very important

part of that team. We will have

more on tomorrow night's big game

in sport.

If you thought standing up to surf

was hard, these guys will prove

laying down is no easier. The

world's best bodyboarders converged

upon Cronulla this week for the

Shark Island Challenge. As you can

see some struggled in the

conditions, we'll have more of them

and some who succeeded later in

sport. Plus the Wallabies team for

Saturday's opening Bledisloe Cup

match in Auckland. And a win for

Australian cricket courtesy of

former prime minister and cricket

tragic John Howard. Police say

bones found on the Central Coast

could be those of a missing mum.

More on that next. Also tonight - a

second man charged with murder over

the airport bikie brawl. And an

On average, people live with that

Experts are piling an automatic

This 11-year-old has a trump

Australia are asking everyone to

assess their own risk through a

been a brazen bid to steal the

running of unease to tradition. The

store committee has been rocked by

the news that its precious gift may

be sold off and sold elsewhere. It

is an event steeped in tradition

but when State Government funding

was pulled and losses mounted,

organisers were forced into some

tough negotiations. You cannot run

a business if you cannot pay your

bills. It is as simple as that.

It is my understanding that the

athletics club sought a proposal

from the City Council. It was not

the case that the council said it

we want the event and this is how

we're going to get it. The backlash

from the community, athletes and

path -- past winners has been

unequivocal. The whole race will be

lost if it goes to Ballarat. If the

offer is not snapped up, the next

race could be the last. Let's take

a look at the weather now without

resident garden gnome! It you're

hiding in the bushes but it is a

gorgeous day. It was beautiful but

it was just the 24-hour period, a

window of blue sky. It will be

closed again tomorrow, quite chilly,

15 degrees in the west and 16

degrees coastal. There is their

chance of a shower and even a late

thunderstorm tomorrow. The snow

should lower down to around 1,000

metres with snow showers across the

likes of the snowfields in the next

two days. The Northern Tobal Lens

might even get a dusting of snow as

it gets very chilly in that neck of

the woods. There was some hail and

sleet in country NSW and it is

always all happening when it comes

to your weather photographs.

And what about this shot! For a

glorious night in Sydney, make the

most of its! Some showers tomorrow

and may be a thunderstorm. The

pregnancy? Well, a UK professor

doesn't think pain during birth is

all bad. In fact, he believes being

in that sort of agony is good for

you. We know the physiology of pain

in labour contributes to labour

way we know it releases endorphins

that help women adjust and cope

with pain. While Dr Walsh is

most mums are telling him to pull

had a baby. He hasn't got a clue,

for it and not men. He couldn't
