is at the scene.

Heavily armed police has surrounded

the house which is on a property in

the hills behind me. The man has

barricaded himself in and is

refusing to talk to negotiators.

The incident began around lunchtime

when the man allegedly assaulted

his partner who was standing with

his elderly mother.

I just saw him belting her and she

fell to the ground.

You could hear the crash from the

other side of the streets.

An off-duty police officer and two

passers-by ran to help the woman.

She was hysterical and I think her

nose was broken. He was really going mad.

The man started to drive off but

then turned his car around and

started to drive us at the group.

The car hit one of fellow.

He was taken to hospital with

spinal injuries. The leg of another

man was grazed and bruised.

emerging about murdered millionaire

Herman Rockefeller's double life.

It's been revealed the 52-year-old

was a member of Melbourne's

swingers scene and met his alleged

killers voluntarily for a sexual

liaison. It's also believed he kept

a number of secret mobile phones

and advertised for partners. 57-

year-old Mario Schembri and 41-

year-old Bernadette Denny will

appear in court tomorrow charged

with his murder.

The Queensland Crime and Misconduct

Commission has raided two police

stations as part of their

investigation into allegations of

officer misconduct on the Gold

Coast. Nicky Haydon has been

following the story.

Simultaneous raids were carried out

on both the Surfers Paradise and

Burleigh Heads police stations this

morning. Officers from the Crime

and Misconduct Commission and

ethical standards command were

armed with search warrants and

several officers' desks, files and

personal belongings were searched.

Ten News has learned a uniformed

constable has been taken to the

watch-house for questioning on a

drug-related matter but is yet to

be charged. Now the CMC has confirmed several properties in

morning. Brisbane were also searched this

A spokesman said the raids were

part of an ongoing investigation

into allegations of police

misconduct on the Gold Coast but

they wouldn't say today whether any

officers have been charged.

A top Sydney police commander is

being investigated for allegedly

giving his teenage daughter an

undercover police pass to the Big

Day Out festival. Assistant Commissioner Stuart Wilkins reportedly gave his 16-year-old

daughter the free pass so she could

avoid paying $140 for a ticket. The

Police Integrity Commission is now

investigating Mr Wilkins as the

passes were strictly reserved for undercover officers targeting drug supply at the event.

Residents in North Queensland are Residents in North Queensland are

ready to evacuate after another day

king tides have caused major

flooding and cut off entire towns.

Giru is isolated. The highway north

and south is under water.

It's just what happens in the wet

season. We love it.

as last year.

This year there was no storm surge.

We were waiting for this 4m tide to

come in and there was nothing!

Finally it's sunny skies here in

Townsville. The worst is over. The

system is now heading south and

taking the rain with it.

It's a huge and harrowing task

that's been almost a century in the

making. The reburying of 250 World

War I soldiers, most of them

Australian, has finally begun in rural France.

They fought and died in the mud,

only to be buried 93 years on in

the snow. The first funeral of the

new Pheasant Wood Cemetery held for

a single nameless hero who was

finally given a dignified grave.

Enfold him in the arms of your

mercy. May he rest in everlasting peace.

They have waited long enough. The

bodies of 250 Australian and

British soldiers to be reburied

here were missing until late 2007,

discovered by an historian in a

mass burial pit nearby. They'd been

among the 5,000 diggers killed or

injured in the legendary Battle of

Fromelles, the bloodiest 24 hours

in our war history.

Hundreds were mown down in the

flicker of an eyelid like great

rows of teeth knocked from a comb.

Every other day for the next month

the reinterments will continue,

some 30 soldiers at a time, each

laid to rest in ceremonies like

this one with hearses, bearer

parties and padres. Reburials with parties and padres. Reburials with the full military honours they've

always deserved but came so close

to never receiving.

If a soldier dies in battle he

deserves an honourable burial.

And a name on his gravestone. DNA

testing to identify all the remains testing to identify all the remains

is on track. There have been viable

DNA samples, actually, from the

overwhelming majority, in excess of

90% of those who've been found here.

What we really need is more

families to come forward over the

next four years.

The more samples they can compare,

the fewer unknown soldiers will lie the fewer unknown soldiers will lie in Pheasant Wood.

Battle lines are being drawn as

federal politicians return to

Canberra for the election year.

Although climate change is still a

hot topic, the first election

promise has come in education.

It's on! On the eve of Parliament's

return, Kevin Rudd and Tony Abbott

have resumed their battle over

climate change And the fight over

means-testing the private health rebate.

Kevin Rudd is determined to

reintroduce the emissions trading scheme.

Depends what day it is. Sometimes

he supports it and sometimes he

opposes it.

commitment. We will keep the gone

Knocking that reform back will cost

$100 billion. Both battlegrounds

could provide the government with a

double dissolution election trigger.

And, even though the PM's

preference is to go full term, the

election campaigning has already

started. But the PM's first

election promise has teachers and

parents groups offside. Mr Rudd has

pledged to expand the controversial My School website with a survey of

parents' views on their school's

culture in bullying, community involvement and classroom innovation.

The National Australia Bank won't

lift its home loan rates higher

than any increase announced by the

Reserve Bank this week. Economists

predict the RBA will hike official

interest rates to 4% on Tuesday.

The NAB denies its decision is due

to a customer backlash.

We're moving and making this

announcement today because we know

customers are concerned and they're

nervous before a Reserve Bank

meeting so this is simply about reassuring them.

Rallies were held nationally today

calling for a royal commission into

the RBA's decision-making process.

Thieves have been blamed for a

Making a mockery of a Sydney Council.

This is the weight of manly of

telling council to go and jump. A

lot of money was spent building the

security fences. Instead, they have

created a whole new problem.

It has added more to the jump so it

is more dangerous than before.

This boy took his first jump at 13

and said the barriers have just

made the jump more dangerous.

thought it was a great weight to

we were kids and I am still here.

John Terry cheated on his wife with

a team-mate's girlfriend. All eyes

were on Chelsea's captain. It is

his life off the pitch that they

are focused on. The FA have refused

to comment on speculation of his

future as English captain. The club

has issued a statement of support.

They said it was a personal matter

for John Terry. We will give them

all the support that he and his

family needed to deal with it. It

was personally and publicly

damaging. The French and model has

been blamed. It is not just his

marriage under the microscope. His

off-pitch antics have raised doubts

about his eligibility as captain. A

23-year-old Sydney man has been

crowned Australia's poker champion

after winning the Aussie Millions

tournament in Melbourne. Tyron

Krost went all in with his final

hand to claim the $2 million winners' purse. Despite outlasting

a field of over 700 players, he

Jack and Luke, Cameron and Hamish,

Katelyn and Timothy, Taylor and

Summer and Sebastian and Daniel

will no doubt test the patience of

teachers at Beaumaris Primary

School. They'll be excited, they'll

be nervous, probably a couple of

little tears. The twins are already

well schooled on what to expect.

and reading books and painting. As

the children embark on a new chapter in their lives, their

parents are just as excited. I

think my daughter will go well,

she's very outgoing. My son will go she's very outgoing. My son will go

well, but he'll have a few teething

problems. Reallly excited - it's

been a long time coming, they've

been doing the big countdown for
