How Europe's economic meltdown

could force a cut in interest rates.

Orica plant shut down after a third

chemical leak. Anger over the

potential release of a notorious

Sydney killer. The truckie who

survived this crash on the Hume

Highway. And we're behind the

scenes as Miranda makes a

triumphant return.

Good evening. Europe's economic

troubles have been spreading across

the world. Today, they reached

Australia. Our stock market lost

more than $30 billion. The Aussie

dollar slumps to its lowest point

in almost a month. But it could

mean a cut in interest rates sooner

rather than later.

Share markets around the world

where were used. The fall-out from

Italy's debt crisis had stocks here

in a freefall. I am worried. It is

unsettled in Europe. It is

unsettling for you read Terry's. In

the US, another GF see is feared.

We are looking at a repeat of 2008

if somebody does not blink. The

promised resignation of Silvio

Berlusconi was not enough to

supermarkets. Italy's borrowing

costs soared above 7%. It is vital

that Europe get its house in order.

Italy, Europe's third biggest

economy, owes a massive 2.6

trillion dollars. That is more than

the debt of Portugal, Spain, Greece

and Ireland combined. If Europe

cannot mount a bail-out, the impact

will hit Australia. A rescue plan

was on the might of Treasurer Wayne

Swan. No economy is immune from the

fall-out of what is occurring in

Europe. There are fears the

eurozone may crumble if Italy

cannot somehow be propped up. If

Italy, and I doubt this will happen,

were to pull-out, the whole thing

is gone. The one upside for

Australia... Europe goes down the

disaster route and we will have no

alternative but to slash interest

rates. Realistically, what are the

chances of a cut in interest rates

in December?

There is still so much to play out

between now and December. The bad

news is that rates were cut because

of the euro crisis. Many banks may

be likely to pass on the full rate

rise because the costs of their

borrowing overseas will have risen.

More immediately, $37 billion were

wiped off the share market today,

for investors. with a lot of nervous days ahead

The State Government has taken the

dramatic step of shutting down the

Orok a chemical plant in Newcastle

after a series of toxic breaches --

Orica. The latest incident has put

renewed pressure on environment

minister Robyn Parker.

From the sky, the Orica plant is

impressive. Certainly, its safety

record is not whispery serious

incidents in a few months. Tim

Seckold and Craig Sanford were

working at this rail yard more than

1.5 kilometres away. They smelled

ammonia and were overcome by the

fumes. It came from Orica. Three

occasions yesterday. A vomiting and

having difficulty breathing, they

were rushed to hospital. Local

residents are sick and tired. I am

shocked there we are in this

situation again and that the people

of Newcastle have got to deal with

another Orica incident. The company

has been under close scrutiny and

is still making mistakes like this.

It horrifies me. The Environment

Minister gave a rare media

conference today. I am calling on

the top person in Orica, whoever

that might be, to explain to the

community. A who is the top person?

She has not even spoken to the

company yet. It was a serious

incident. We should not have got to

the safety valve having to be

released which is why this

afternoon I intend to shut the

plant down. Why did you have so

little confidence in your minister

that you had to prompt with the

name of the boss? I have full

confidence in my minister for seven

fall-out for Robyn Parker? Her

there are plenty of people in

there. It is a huge loss for

everybody. Loui Soravia is still

hurting over the murder of his wife

17 years ago. The mother of three

was shot dead while taking the

family's service station takings to

a bank. She handed over the crash

when David Zammit pulled a trigger.

First 17-year-old son saw the whole thing.

Recently, Loui Soravia had to

explain her death to his grandson.

Youngster found out on Google that

she had been murdered. How do you

tell a 10-year-old something like

that? You start crying. It is a

difficult thing for a young 10-

year-old. Loui Soravia is being

forced to relive the nightmare. His

wife's killer wants weekend leave

and work release. How can that be

possible that someone who has

committed such a crime can be

allowed to be moved back into

society unsupervised for a weekend

holiday? He was one of three men

charged over the murder. He is in

Silverwater jail and due for parole

in two years. It is not the first

time David Zammit has been on

parole. When he murdered Toula

Soravia, he had only just been

released from jail after committing

another armed robbery. In 30 days,

he had committed this crime and I

lost my wife. Loui Soravia will

appeal personally to the Justice

Minister to keep David Zammit

locked up. He might reoffend and

commit another murder.

A man is in custody tonight after

being arrested at Lidcombe train

station with what police say was a home-made pipe-bomb.

Police say he was heading into

Sydney Harbour to detonate the

device in the water. The 33-year-

old was arrested here at Lidcombe

station last night during a routine

drug operation. He reportedly

became agitated at the side of

sniffer dogs. He was searched and

they uncovered a pipe-bomb hidden

inside a glasses case, Andy Nye. He

told police he had no targets in

mind. And he was simply having a

bad day. Police raided his unit,

allegedly uncovering more weapons

and methylamphetamine so. Bail was

refused. He is due back in court Wednesday next week.

A truck driver has somehow survived

an horrific crash on the Hume

Highway. He smashed through a

barrier and plummeted into bushland below.

There is no doubt about what

happened, but how? But on dawn

today, this B-double truck field

off the Hume Highway. It crash

through a safety barrier and

cannonballed down a steep

embankment. It disintegrated as it

went. Part of it ended up in a

creek. The rest were scattered in

bushland between two freeway

bridges. The driver was injured and

trapped in his cap until the first

rescuers arrived. They cut their

way through shattered wreckage to

get to him. He was taken to

hospital by a rescue helicopter. He

is now recovering from shock and

non- life-threatening injuries.

Salvage crews will workout just out

recover his truck.

Less than a year after becoming a

mum, Miranda Kerr was back in her

not just any old underwear. The 28-
