for abusing a cab driver A man has been arrested in Melbourne and stealing his taxi. Police say the man swore at the driver before throwing coins at him and demanding to be driven around. He then stole the vehicle before crashing the cab and fleeing the scene. He started abusing me, started to become more aggressive at me so I came out of taxi. Police are questioning the 27-year-old South Yarra man. There's mounting pressure today for the WA Government to call a royal commission into the workings of its embattled Department for Community Development. It follows an inquiry which revealed children in its care are being subjected to violence and abuse. Inside Perth's five Government-run hostels are 27 children who have nowhere else to go. They're aged from 5 to 17. Some are suicidal.

Others perpetrate violence and sexual abuse on other children. It's an extraordinarily challenging environment. Honestly, my staff were moved by young people they spoke to, by workers they spoke to and by managers issues for the department. The Obusdman's report detailed the concerns of one carer who said:

Another told: The Ombudsman opened this can of worms

while investigating complaints by a Department whistleblower who believed some staff overstepped the mark when disciplining children in their care. They are no angels but when you've got 15% of them being under 10,

don't they deserve a more supportive environment than the one that's coming out in this report? Two carers have been charged with assault and indecent dealing and no longer work for the Department. The union says it's a tough job with little support. They've got to try and manage innocent children

who have no history and no experience with these situations, with sexual predators, with violent offenders, in a very small residential environment. That's why we've increased the number of staff that will be working with them. The Ombudsman has handed down 24 recommendations

aimed at improving the management of the hostels. Narelda Jacobs, Ten News. A New South Wales schoolboy who snagged a date with former Miss Universe Jennifer Hawkins has been dumped.

SONG: # By my side... # This program is captioned live. A radical new breakthrough in cancer treatment. Doctors in the US are genetically engineering the body's immune system

to destroy tumors. Mark Origer's body has done what surgery, chemotherapy and radiation couldn't - it's killed off his cancer. Today we can genetically modify normal immune cells and give normal cells the properties to attack and destroy a cancer in a patient. Mark was diagnosed with melanoma six years ago. By 2004, the cancer was in his liver and spreading. Right about that time my daughter got engaged,

and I knew there was going to be a wedding coming up, so there was concern. I wanted to be there. He owes his life to a clinical trial where his white blood cells were combined with a genetically engineered virus, creating what doctors are calling a smart bomb that can seek out and destroy tumours. Of the 17 patients in the trial, he and another patient had their cancer disappear. It's being hailed as the beginning of a new chapter in cancer treatment. Doctors hope the genetically engineered smart bombs will one day be used to fight lung cancer, as well as ovarian and prostate cancer. Without the treatment, Mark Origer may never have fulfilled the dream of walking his daughter down the aisle. In the United States, Leisa Goddard-Roles, Ten News. The key to warding off Alzheimer's disease

could be found in your fridge. New research has found drinking three glasses of juice a week reduces the risk by 76%. It's a recognised way of warding off Alzheimer's. Doing things like bingo to stay mentally active. Physical exercise also helps and so does healthy eating. But today's study gives the most detailed evidence yet about the benefits of fruit and vegetable juices. Researchers used a sample of 1,800 Japanese people living in the US. They started with the same nationality because of the similarities in their lifestyle and what they eat. They followed them over the course of 10 years. They found that the people that drank at least three glasses of fruit or vegetable juice a week were 76% less likely to develop Alzheimer's disease. They believe it's because juices like these are very high in substances known as polyphenols. Researchers already know that polyphenols may disrupt the process by which Alzheimer's damages the brain. Now it looks as if juices rich in polyphenols are a useful, preventative measure especially for people who are genetically disposed to get Alzheimer's. They should particularly consider including fruit and vegetables in their diet because we now know that, particularly for this group of people with this gene, it matters even more. The studies show clearly that they reduce the risk to a higher extent than people without this particular gene. There is no cure yet, to those seeking to ward it off. but this research gives new hope Police in Norway have recovered a pair of paintings by Edvard Munch from a museum in Oslo. stolen two years ago 'The Scream' and 'Madonna' The world famous artworks after an international police hunt. have been found in a bold daylight raid in 2004 The paintings were stolen and had remained missing of three suspects in May. despite the conviction where the masterpieces were found Police haven't revealed

Ten News reporter Frank Coletta is down at Sydney's Circular Quay.

Mignon, HMAS 'Ballarat' and its 185 personnel back from the Persian Gulf after 6-month tour of duty. They're back here in Australia now to a very warm welcome on the first day of spring from family and friends, many of whom haven't seen them since March. While away, the crew were involved in detecting and intercepting vessels in Iraqi waters suspected in illegal activity.

They also played a pivotal role in protecting vital economical resources including Iraq's oil platforms. Their efforts earning the 'Ballarat' the nickname of 'the little frigate that can'. As you can imagine, being away for 162 days can mean changes on the home-front. Three crew members were becoming dads while they were away. One became a grandfather.
