(generated from captions) This program is captioned live. Good morning. I'm Richard Davies. And I'm Jacinta Hocking. Welcome to Ten's Early News. Today - salvage setback. An oil leak slows the rescue of the 'Pasha Bulker' off the New South Wales coast. Terror arrests - five people now in police custody over a car-bombing incident at Glasgow airport. Royal christening - Princess Mary names her baby girl after an anxious 2.5-month wait. And in sport - the Hawks secure a place in the top two with a thrilling win over Collingwood. Now with a check of the finance markets, here's Jacinta Hocking. A subdued start to the new financial year is the forecast following a fair bit of uncertainty on US markets.

We'll have more on the Coles takeover coming up. Major environmental concerns this morning in Newcastle where oil has been spilling from the stranded bulk carrier 'Pasha Bulker'.

Salvage crews are trying to assess the extent of the leak. With more, Ten reporter Kevin Wilde joins us live from Nobbys Beach. Kevin, how serious does the situation appear to be?

Richard, the WA conglomerate has made a $20 billion play for our second-largest retailer Coles. The offer was made on Friday night

despite the shock withdrawal of two of Wesfarmers' private equity partners and the company has been locked in negotiations with the Coles board since. The improved buy-out deal is believed to be worth between $16 and $17 dollars a share.

Coles could also decide to sell its retail chains individually. Good news for our dollar, some economists predicting it may be worth 90 US cents by Christmas. It's expected to remain strong for the rest of the year thanks to a commodities boom driven by demand from China and India.

A softness in the US economy is also helping our currency. On Friday the Aussie dollar was buying just over 85 US cents. Now for a look at the national weather and for the rest of the day.

Now for a look at today's papers.

Five people arrested over the car-bombing incident at Glasgow Airport.

This program is captioned live. Welcome back. Leading Ten's Early News this Monday morning - Glasgow raids. Five people taken into custody as Britain is braces for an imminent terrorist strike. Slowly but surely - salvage crews progress in their attempt to move the 'Pasha Bulker' amid fears of an oil leak. Costly clean-up - $30 million to be spent mopping up south-east Victoria. Residents only just returning to their homes. And paying tribute - Prince William lets his hair down at a tribute concert for his late mother. Time now for finance with Jacinta and forecasts of a subdued start to the new financial year? Yes, following a fair bit of uncertainty on US markets. I'll be back shortly with a feature on WA's resources boom. Australia hasn't lifted its terror threat despite the latest terror attacks in the UK. Five people have now been arrested over the car-bombing incident at Glasgow Airport. Firefighters doused the flames engulfing the Jeep that ploughed into Scotland's largest airport. The fiery crash was no accident. I can confirm that we believe the incident at Glasgow Airport is linked to the events of London yesterday. Witnesses saw the Jeep's driver and passenger with gasoline canisters.

Police wrestled the men to the ground and arrested them. One so badly burnt and went to hospital was found wearing a suspicious device. No-one inside the terminal were hurt but passengers were shaken. A massive investigation is under way. In Northern England, specialist officers made two more arrests in connection with the terror plots. In London, police used closed-circuit images to track the suspects in the two foiled car bombings. After three incidents in less than 48 hours authorities raised the country's security threat level to critical meaning another attack may be imminent. I know that the British people will stand together united, resolute and strong. and the attack is making an impact across the Atlantic. Stranded ship the 'Pasha Bulker' may be leaking oil after salvage crews tried to move the vessel. $30 million will be spent cleaning up after the floods in south-east Victoria. Work begins this morning. A State Government taskforce to co-ordinate repair work on bridges, roads and vital infrastructure.

Despite the floods, the mood has remained buoyant with locals making the most of the conditions. Defiant residents survived on just a few hours sleep to protect their livelihood. Everyone's getting pretty tired and sick of it. It's pretty boring but, um, it just has to be done - try and win. I put silicon around my doors, front and back shut, but the water's actually coming up through the brickwork. The clean-up proved hard work. I'm not sure what the next step is - just have to wait till the water goes and get the business up and running again.

Contamination now the only hazard. We can't do much about that. That's just part and parcel of living here - it comes up through the sewerage somehow. I don't know whose fault it is - CONGREGATION SINGS Flooding forcing a church to move its service to the local caravan park. WOMAN: Let us pray.

A leading unionist has reportedly described Kevin Rudd's industrial policies as weak and vowed to fight them should he become prime minister. the obvious focus was to win government. He said once that happened, Mr Rudd's workplace views could be challenged.

Health inspectors will conduct a blitz across the state in November and December to ensure compliance. Mr Robertson conceded Labor's reluctance to abolish AWAs has been frustrating. Smoking bans kicked in overnight in pubs and clubs across NSW. $550 fines now apply to anyone who lights up inside licensed premises while licensees face fines of up to $5,500 if they flout the new laws.

Similar bans came into force across Victoria on Saturday night. Elton John has kicked off a charity concert of Princess Diana's death. before a bumper audience. It would have been the late Princess's 46th birthday. The six-hour show organised by her two sons honouring her as a both person and humanitarian.

We have the greatest pleasure in introducing one of our mother's favourite bands, it's Duran Duran. It was a nostalgic experience for the 70,000-strong crowd who braved the wet conditions to pay tribute. (Sings) # I hope you've don't mind, I hope you've don't mind.

# How wonderful life is while you are in the world. # The concert was broadcast to more than 145 countries and was a hit with both young and old.

# She's the only one I got, not much of a girlfriend. # A memorial service will be held on the 31 August to mark the 10th anniversary of her death. Anthony Donaghy, Ten News.

In league, the Wests Tigers have braved the cold in Canberra and come away with the two points. While competition heavy weights Manly were stunned by ladder cellar-dwellers St George Illawarra. Roosters recruit Jamie Soward instrumental in a rare win for the Dragons.

The halfback bagging a double on the way to a massive upset. COMMENTATOR: Go to the corner - Jamie Soward! The win providing coach Nathan Brown some much-needed inspiration. If we can get out next week and put in a good performance against Canberra and hopefully get a win there, then we're two points outside the eight which is quite remarkable. In Canberra, Todd Carney's return from suspension started perfectly. His first touch helping David Milne across the line

after just 80 seconds. But the Tigers were out to spoil the party, Robbie Farah settling in to the No.7 jersey with ease the Tigers snapping their 2-game losing streak. I think Robbie showed today he's a class act, didn't he?

A good football player - he did some great things at No.7. The loss expensive for Canberra. Utility Micheal Weyman suffered a suspected fractured tibia, skipper Alan Tongue, a knee injury.

Both will have scans today. Victoria Murphy, Ten News. Hawthorn has cemented its spot in the top two after an enthralling 8-point win over Collingwood last night. The Magpies were hoping to put a tumultous week behind them. The clash living up to expectations with multiple lead changes. Alan Didak looked set to be the difference when he kicked his second in the final quarter. But the Hawks held on in a thriller, youngster Jarred Roughead sealing it with his third goal. Roger Federer has moved one step closer to a fifth consecutive Wimbledon final without even hitting a ball. The world number 1 moving straight through to the quarter finals with his 4th round opponent Tommy Hass forced out with a torn abdominal muscle.

when the next inflation figures are published. fastest growing state Western Australia is now the nation's but it is experiencing some severe growing pains. While fortunes are there to be made, the state is struggling to cope with the influx of workers. The WA mining boom is continuing an exodus of workers from the east. Brisbane's Clive Palmer heads up the iron ore miner mineralogy

and he's one of Australia's new breed of billionaires. So Clive, what's your secret to success? Most of all, to persist, not to be afraid of failure. 'cause I've failed many, many times and I've just kept on going. But mining towns are bursting at the seams. Former Sydney car salesman John Evans and his family are among 15 people crammed onto one property living in a caravan because they can't afford a house. and we have to chip in for electricity and the maintenance of the place itself. Better luck for 23-year-old fitter Samantha Docking already on six figures and her company pays the rent. Her latest purchase - a $45,000 boat. I'm managing to put away a fair bit at the moment. I don't know whether I'll buy a house or go overseas for a while. Economists say there's no telling when the golden times will end. Currently, the WA economy is at 10% so it's going as fast as China to put it into perspective. Ebbeny Faranda, Ten News. Now for a look at the national weather and for the rest of the day.
