On one side - the NSW Government The final mass will be at Randwick. On the other - the racing industry. It claims it couldn't cope with such a disruption, on top of the current equine flu epidemic.

We've got 50,000 participants in NSW suffering from equine flu. To take another hit with the Youth Day would be very, very hard. Randwick is still officially a quarantine zone and could remain that way until the end of the year. I am more shocked than anything else. Because time is running out, they need 12 months construction, and I can't see how they'll do it in time at Randwick.

Then there will be the restoration work needed to return the track back to race condition. This is where the last papal mass was held in Sydney. But that was a one-day event. World Youth day will take up the better part of a week and include camping facilities for visitors. Organisers admit there's still a lot to do, preparing for Australia's biggest ever international event,

We've hardly begun to realise what's ahead of us for World Youth Day here in Sydney. But, they promise locals, it will be worth it. Every previous host talks for years to come about the magical time when their city was filled with the young people of the world. Amber Muir, Ten News.

It's believed David Breckenridge was stabbed to death by two men while on his way to a friend's house to watch a rugby match.

David was just killed across the road here. It's very busy. Somebody must have seen the attack on David and we ask the people to come forward and take the pressure off their own conscience. $250,000 has been offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible.

Teenage model Maddison Gabriel is preparing for her big night tonight, appearing as the fresh face of Gold Coast Fashion Week. The 12-year-old's been at the centre of a catfight this week, over whether someone her age should be modelling adult clothes. Covering the event for the Ten Network is reporter Andrew Leahy. Despite three days of condemnation that has come from as high

as the Prime Minister, John Howard, the organisers of Gold Coast Fashion Week will allow 12-year-old Maddison Gabriel to appear at tonight's VIP event. But they have stressed to us she will not be appearing as a professional model, but rather as a guest of the event, in a couture gown with nine of the other finalists.

Now Madison won the Gold Coast Fashion Week competition

which means she'll be the face of next year's competition, rather than this year's and organisers say the only reason she'll get up on stage is so they can wish her a happy 13th birthday for tomorrow. Maddison herself is relatively unscathed by all of the furore, and says she will continue to chase her dream to be an international model. I know that I want to be an international model so all this fuss is just silly and Part of her prize is to do a modelling course next year

and after that Maddison can decide whether she wants to go on to a modelling contract. A Muslim writer who's finally won his battle to enter Australia claims he's no terrorist sympathiser. Abdel Bari Atwan, who once interviewed Osama bin Laden, told Brisbane's Writers Festival today that the Government had nothing to fear. I am a man of peace.

While our governments are looking at restricting the work of teenage models, tougher action is already being taken in the UK. London Fashion Week organisers have banned models under 16 years of age, and are demanding health certificates from all catwalk models. This afternoon it was the final run-through for the Topshop show. On the catwalk - the familiar parade of the young and the slender.

But fashion has decided it can go too far.

Take Charlotte Carter - a beautiful, glamourous model who's just been turned down by her agency for being too thin. I went to the agency and they took the polaroids of me and when I saw myself, I was absolutely gobsmacked because I was aware I'd lost a lot of weight,

but I'd also gained a lot of weight so I thought - being the disease that it is - that I was on the road to recovery. However, I wasn't and they told me to, basically, go home and rest up. They thought I was beautiful, but I needed to take care of myself. A new report says have eating disorders, so it recommends that models be at least 16, have regular medical checks and even face random drugs tests. But, unlike Milan or Madrid,

What we want to do is to have girls who are fit for work, girls who are healthy at the London Fashion Week so that's why we've gone further, if you like, by saying, further than banning BMIs or banning size zeros, by saying what we want girls to do is have health checks to ensure that they're fit and healthy for work. This whole enquiry was prompted by the death of two models from eating disorders.

Behind the glamour, there are many young and vulnerable women. OJ Simpson is tonight the subject of a police investigation into an armed robbery at a Las Vegas casino. Simpson says he was part of a sting aimed at reclaiming his sporting memorabilia. Former NFL legend OJ Simpson, whose fame turned to infamy, is caught up in another police investigation. Las Vegas police named Simpson as a suspect in a break-in at the Palace Station Casino. We have reported from the victim that there were weapons involved. We have not determined and we have not recovered any weapons. Several victims allege OJ was one of a group that broke into their hotel room, home invasion-style and took some sports memorabilia. He is not in custody and he is cooperating with the investigation. But Simpson says he was tipped off that collectors had items and they didn't want anyone to know they were selling them. He says he went there to conduct a sting operation to get what was his, and that he didn't break into the room - he was escorted in. The former Heisman Trophy winner

was reduced to auctioning off his most prized sports collectibles to pay some of his $33.5 million

That was after Simpson was acquitted of murder charges and Ronald Goldman. in the deaths of Nicole Brown Simpson In this tell-all book called 'If I Did It' Simpson gives a hypothetical description of how he could have carried out the murders of his ex-wife and her friend. He's here in Las Vegas, which hits the stores this week. apparently to promote the book Simpson is quoted as saying, Speaking about this latest incident, "Nobody was roughed up.
