and just from the way he reacted to people, and presented himself to people, as such a warm and loving figure. A standing ovation as the Pope's coffin was carried away. Most of the crowd were young. This is only pope they've known. He just touched so many people even though he's one man and it just shows that even just one person can touch the world. His effect - domino effect - just changes everything. It was just really, really excellent to be in there and to come here and remember how much he's done for us. An evening many Catholics have used to show a sincere respect for a man they will clearly remember, as Cardinal George Pell put it, as John Paul the Great. I think it's going to take a while for us to get used to this, because he's been Pope for so long and such a wonderful pope. But the church moves on, 2,000 years it's been going, so we'll elect a new pope and hopefully he'll be a man as good as Pope John Paul II.

They do have comfortable In just a few hours time Prince Charles will finally marry his long-time lover Camilla Parker Bowles. Ten News reporter Kate McGrath joins us from the historic town of Windsor. Kate, this wedding has seemed jinxed from the start. How have final preparations gone? Well the latest controversy is that Prince Charles was seen shaking the hands of Zimbabwe president Robert Mugabe yesterday at the funeral in Rome. The Prince is known to appal the president's regime. Other than that preparations going smoothly this morning although there is the chance of smooth. Some local I spoke to in the last 24 hours believe the ghost of the late Princess Diana have been playing a part in the upsets but I cannot be sure. People are saying they are hope for a low key affair, will they get their wish? Sit a royal wedding, the world's media is abuzz here in Windsor. They've rented out shop fronts to capture them coming to and from the civil ceremony. Plenty of royal fanatics, many even camping out overnight in near freezing temperatures from as far as field as America and even Tasmania. And it's still early so the thousands predicted to gather still have time. Overall, it has been a frantic week of preparations. Windsor was being buffed to a fine finish today for the wedding that, right from the very start, has been far from a fairytale. First a switch of venue from Windsor Castle to the town hall, after a marriage licence mix-up. Then the announcement the Queen wouldn't attend the civil ceremony. And finally a 24-hour postponement because of a clash with Pope John Paul II's funeral. The change of date a headache for souvenir shops. We've got just one tea towel with the correct date. That's got the 9th and that's the only item. But that hasn't deterred the faithful. Hotels are fully booked and the hunt now on for the perfect vantage point. There is a big police presence at Windsor Castle, the subject of several recent security breaches. Locals, however, still with mixed feelings about the nuptials. He's going to make an honest woman of her. Couldn't carry on living like they were. Queen Camilla, mmm, yeah, still a bit of a touchy subject there. Touchy maybe, but nothing was going to keep the world's media away. Among them, Nicholas Witchell, the BBC reporter The world's press has just basically taken over, basically there's just a camera on every The question on everyone's lips now - what will divorcee and mum-of-two Camilla be wearing? The full white meringue probably isn't appropriate It won't be long before all is revealed. In just a few hours Charles and Camilla will be driven from Windsor Castle to the local town hall where they will be married by a registrar before about 30 guests, among them Princes William and Harry. They'll then head back to the castle for a blessing ceremony in St George's Chapel. There, around 700 guests, including the Queen and British PM Tony Blair, will be invited to join the couple in a prayer of confession and absolution. Around 100 million people worldwide expected to watch the ceremony on television. A far cry from the lavish ceremony 24 years ago when Charles wed Diana, when a million people lined the streets, 800 million TV viewers tuning in to the royal wedding of the century. Many still find it hard to forget 'the people's princess', killed in a Paris car crash in 1997. Others willing to give Camilla a go. She's probably great fun and we'll have to wait to see if she works a crowd in the same way that Diana works a crowd. And there'll be plenty of high profile guests on hand to support the newly weds. Actresses Joanna Lumley and Prunella Scales You've got kings. You've got dignitaries. That seating plan! After the celebrations, the couple, who have survived separation, scandal and ridicule will head for a honeymoon in the quiet of the Scottish Highlands. Kate McGrath, Ten News. The scare campaign over interest rates has the Opposition demanding answers but the government says it's done nothing wrong. Details coming up. And a high-speed police chase leaves 16 people injured after a horror smash. This program is captioned live. The Federal Liberal Party is trying to play down concerns about its campaign material during the last election. It's blamed complaints by the Reserve Bank on a clerical error. Six months after the election loss and Labor is still smarting over the Coalition's interest rate scare campaign. The Prime Minister has got to come clean about this whole sorry affair. At issue, this brochure warning voters they may need an extra $962 a month to pay their mortgage under Labor. Only problem was, it was sourced to the Reserve Bank of Australia. The Bank, concerned it would be falsely seen as endorsing the message, took the extraordinary step of writing to the Australian Electoral Commission, asking it to stop the brochure circulating. The AEC was powerless to act. It's about a pattern of deception in this Government. It's about reducing the independence of the Reserve Bank and it's about the integrity of the electoral system. The Treasurer has no concerns. None whatsoever. The Reserve Bank refers it to the Electoral Commission and the Electoral Commission says, consistent with the Act. Story over. The Bank also complained to the Liberal official named on the pamphlet. Liberal Party head office has blamed the dispute on a clerical error, saying an asterisk was missing from the brochure. And, once it was pointed out, distribution of that brochure stopped. But the Greens want a Senate inquiry. We cannot and must not allow electors to be misled, cheated or lied to on the way to the ballot box. Leonie Mellor, Ten News. A Sydney girl remains in a critical condition as police appeal for the writer of a hit and run letter to come forward. The author gave details of the car, including registration, that allegedly hit Georgina Woods on Monday. We just need some contact details so we can speak to him or other members who are inferred in the letter as having witnessed the event. It is vital to our investigation that the person comes forward and speaks to us. 8-year-old Georgina is now in a coma at Sydney Children's Hospital. The author claimed he called Crimestoppers but the operator hung up after he refused to reveal his identity. A man's been killed in an horrific car crash in Adelaide, his wife witnessing the smash. The 47-year-old's car was rammed from behind sending his car into a power pole. He died at the scene. Police are questioning the other driver who's recovering in hospital. We're going to be testing for any alcohol, any drugs. We'll be talking to all the witnesses. It's believed the dead man's wife was in another vehicle following her husband at the time of the crash. A van being pursued by police has hit an RSL courtesy bus, injuring 16 people on the Sunshine Coast. The force of the collision rolling the bus over. They thought the courtesy mini-bus would be the safe option to get home. Nobody could have guessed it would end up at the centre of a horrible roadside emergency. The whole pathway here was just lined with people. The ones that were majorly hurt and the ones that were half OK were all lying here on the footpath. Over 20 RSL patrons of all ages, most suffering painful injuries, all in shock. They had to be treated on site - emergency crews put to the test with the sheer volume of patients. They range from minor injuries through to serious injuries. None of the injuries was life threatening, but distressing just the same. The bus was bulldozed onto its side, by the force of the crash. A 16-year-old boy was behind the wheel of the other vehicle. It's believed he ran a red light to escape police. Witnesses had reported him driving erratically. He and his two teenage passengers were also injured. The patients were taken to Nambour and Caloundra hospitals. No charges have yet been laid. Amanda McLeay, Ten News.

Most building materials that contain asbestos are no problem if they're in good condition and they're left alone. But it's important that anyone who might do work on a building knows what they're dealing with. That's why there are new laws that require that you give anyone who might be affected, like tradesmen, tenants or potential purchasers, written information on what you know about any materials that could contain asbestos. For more information, see this booklet or the asbestos website. at the end of what's been a very difficult week. On the stand today, former Neverland cook Phillip LeMarque. He says he saw Jackson molesting then 10-year-old Macauley Culkin. The French chef claims he delivered fries to the arcade room at 3:00am. Inside he saw the two stars playing video games, explaining Jackson's hand was down Culkin's pants. LeMarque says he was so shocked he almost dropped the fries. Explaining he didn't report the incident because in 1991 Jackson was a megastar and no-one would believe he'd abuse a child. The Jackson camp claims the cook, who also ran an Internet porn site, made up the allegations because he wanted to make money from tabloid magazines. Culkin, who was arrested on marijuana charges last year, has repeatedly denied he was abused. But commentators say he fears embarrassment and ridicule. Who would want to say this happened to them 10,15 years ago? Macauley Culkin has refused to testify in this case. For Jackson, it's been the most damaging week of the trial so far. Prosecutors have produced a series of witnesses all testifying they had seen the pop star abusing boys. It's kind of like the pieces of the puzzle fit together. They're not telling wildly different stories. Their stories all have a common pattern, a common theme.

Faster than a speeding bullet, Sydney has been transformed into Metropolis. Crew from the new movie 'Superman Returns' working around the clock as shooting moves to the city streets. The heart of the city of Sydney had a makeover today, being transformed into Metropolis, home base for 'Daily Planet' reporter Clark Kent and his alter ego 'Superman.' Yellow taxis, Metropolis buses, even our street signs scoring a change of insigna. And - at the heart of the shoot - an office building, now Metropolis General Hospital.
