You look at the Reserve Bank now, cautiously optimistic about the global environment.

I think they are believing from Europe has diminished to some the worst has passed up.

It doesn't rule out rate hikes. We are expecting one rate to come through in April after the inflation data but that will be it and I think after that, the Reserve Bank will be on hold.

A more peaceful and tranquil location compared to yesterday when the mini tornado came through a narrow strip, when we drove around last night, it is amazing how selective it was. But 20 homes lost their roofs with blasts of wind around the 140km/h and $ around the 140km/h and $millions of dollars. The trough moving south, responsible for the rain and winds is sliding south into the Queensland as we take a look at the is sliding south into the central forecast for the first time this morning forecast for the first time this morning Townsville.

A massive clean-up effort is already underway in Townsville after dozens of homes were damaged by a tornado-like storm. And now the region could be hit by more damaging winds and flash flooding. for a number of cities including Townsville and Mackay. Grant is back with us from Townsville, Sunrise correspondent Michelle Tapper is in Mackay and senior meteorologist Tom Saunders is at the Weather Channel. Grant, many locals are saying the storm was worse than Cyclone Yasi. The fascinating thing, some viewers slept through it and had no idea. But others said it was worse than Yasi. For those in the direct path of what was a mini tornado, there is no such thing but it is what it like. It was very specific in its no such thing but it is what it was path. This time yesterday, it is quite calm, a lot of residents saying how still it was before it hit and then whooshka! It came and did damage. 20 homes lost their roofs. It was as terrifying Yasi in that many people had to bunker down in their bathrooms. They they tried to get a tiny cavity to protect themselves. Those unique four suburbs, where the mini tornado snaked its way, it was but the rest of Townsville might not snaked its way, it was terrifying have known. An amazing storm front, Michelle, down in Mackay, more than 500 mL of rain in the last has been extraordinary over the last week. Unfortunately, this whole 500 mL of rain in the last week. It

region is expecting another 200mm to fall in the next 24 hours. In fact, places like Mount Vince, just outside of Mackay have had more than 320mm in the last 24 hours so it is wreaking havoc on the roads. They are close, defendant to get to the north or -- difficult to get to the north or west and the huge pot holes. All the rivers and creeks are very full, there is mining flooding up stream and a chance of minor flooding here in Mackay when the Pioneer River peaks around midday, depending on the rain fall. It has been easing off and then just bucketing down quite torrentially. Out in Walkerston a town out of Mackay, in six hours they received 186mm. The school children had to be tracked across the locum creek to be rescued. Has been has been had to be tractored across the creek. The rain is on the move, it is not falling in the same areas as yesterday. So far northern areas of Queensland are starting to dry out. So for Cairns and Townsville today, lighter falls. The heaviest rain for the next 24 hours will be central Queensland. The central coast including Mackay and possibly Rockhampton, the central Highlands and southern inland of the state. The rain will move south tomorrow, so the south-east quarter of Queensland tomorrow with the heaviest rain. Most of the rain will start pushing off the coast on Friday. Good news, can't come soon enough. Thank you, will check in later. Ahead this Sunrise - electric shock. Australians paying more for electricity than many other countries and the price is going up. Plus, airport outrage. The 3-year-old in a wheelchair flying to Disneyland on a family holiday patted down by security. The sausage patties sizzle as bacon crackles away.

Every year, we bake real hot cross buns, including traditional and choc chip. And every morning, we make them fresh, from scratch, with real dough, using real spices, by real bakers. After all, real hot cross buns shouldn't be another thing you have to hunt for this Easter. at Beacon Lighting. Super savings on LED lights, fans and more, with 30% off your second item. Making news this morning - a new study highlighting the cost of electricity. It's found we're paying more for power than people in many other countries. Electricity's already 70% higher than the US and 130% more than Canadians.

Wow! Double what Canadians pay. Knew that would get your attention. South Australia has the most expensive power in the country following by New South Wales and Victoria. And it's claimed the average household power bill will rise a further $150 in the first 12 months after July's introduction of the carbon tax. That's interesting. Against the US and things like that, they have a bigger population, critical mass, all that sort of stuff but we more than double Canada. They are a lot colder than we are. A big all that sort of stuff but we are

country with a small population, a similar comparison. But I would assume they would use more. Because of the heating needs. Because it snows a lot. Whether it cancels out with air conditioning. It is not good. Also getting a lot of coverage around the world - is the 3-year-old in a wheelchair being patted down at airport security. The boy's dad shot this video two years ago but he's now posted it on YouTube where it's fast becoming one of the most watched clips. The father says he tried to remain calm even though his son was trembling with fear and close to tears. At one point, the boy asks his dad to hold his hand but security officers wouldn't let him. They even swabbed the kid. Now, American officials say they've modified their screening procedures and nearly eliminated patdowns of children. But tell us, do you think they're necessary at all? I think it's hard to draw the line. Do you draw the line at old people and what is an old person. Do you draw the line at kids and what is a kid. Surely everyone going through has to be treated the same. It looks awkward and makes you cringe, a child like that patted down but it is what it is. The security guy has guidelines, he lets someone through and something happens it is on and something happens it is on his head. Teach your kids. I must admit, the kid didn't look too up set. The kid's not crying. I can remember flying when Tahlia was a newborn I had her on the pouch on a midnight flight and them saying I had to get flying when Tahlia was a newborn and

her out of the pouch, unwrap her, wake her up, she started crying, it seemed to be such a confronting thing with this tiny baby but I understand when do you draw the line. You can't leave them in line. You can't leave them in the bassinet when you are landing, where do you draw the line? Here's one of the strangest education policies taht we've come across. It's the school banning kids from having best friends. Teachers in the UK think it will stop children from getting upset if they fall out with someone. How do you feel about banning kids from having best friends? I think ban pets, because imagine if your pet dies? The kid's got to cope with the grief of that. Take them to the airport and pat them down, I say. Grandparents, in case something happens. How ridiculous. Also, kids are different. Some kids have one best friend rb others have half a dozen. Stupid. Sorry. Help us with this, girls. We need to check this. A study shows women spend around three hours redoing the chores their men did badly. In their view. Underline that, in their view. Doing the laundry, vacuuming and washing up are the main tasks men do poorly. We also fall short on rearranging the sofa cushions properly, OK, maybe. Who does that? Making the bed incorrectly and wiping down kitchen worktops. So does your partner do their chores properly? Girls, is that true? Do you go and redo them. No, you are dumb if you do. Why make extra work? You are just happy anyone has done anything. Who is rearranging the sofa cushions. You have too much time. No, why does a sofa need cushions. Too many cushions. For comfort on your back. Laying back and watching. Or for beds, who needs cushions on beds, you have a pillow to sleep on. But then I don't get girls and cushions. It is the lovely feminine touches around your home Lib does you are probably not aware of. We are in mourning, the Kochie family we lost a dear friend overnight. We have thrown them out of home. After 33 years, not one of the kids, our Sunbeam Mix Master. We got as a wedding present. It still goes, so we put it out for the council pick young. It still goes and you got rid of it? Why? The kids gave Leb a new flash one over the weekend for her birthday. Have you got a much loved appliance that still works. I have the SunBeam Mix Master from my parents in the '60s, the kids asked if I wanted a new one and I said no. Don't make them like they used to. Still ahead - the 'MKR' contestant who's ended up in hospital. Who is it? We have the exclusive, later. Was it the food? No, dangerous has been a poisoning? Food Was it the food? No, dangerous the poisoning? On 'My Kitchen Rules'? That's a headline. We never said that. But next, news and weather. Plus the code word for our $100,000 cash bonanza.

Mazda has shaped a new kind of SUV - one that can run for 100km yet amazingly use as little as 5.1 litres of fuel, can carry five in supreme safety yet is compact and feels ready to pounce. It's an SUV but not as you know it. after his boat capsized in Sydney's north-west last night. The 25-year-old was out in his aluminium runabout when it overturned around 8:00. His friend, who was on the shore at the time, dived in to try and help but couldn't find his mate. A major search operation is expected to resume shortly. A strong 7.9 magnitude earthquake has shaken southern Mexico. There are no reports of any immediate damage but locals say they felt buildings start to sway and some workers were seen running into the street. The quake struck around 10 kilometres underground. It will be all hands on deck in Townsville today as locals clean up after a large freak storm. SES crews and the Army will also be on hand after the storm ripped through the city early yesterday. Trees were down and roofs were ripped off homes. I looked out the window and the palm trees were bent right over, nearly touching the ground and then, all of a sudden, the roof started to go. The city has been declared a natural disaster area. Relatives of a young Brazilian student who died after being tasered in Sydney say he had a promising future ahead of him. The victim has been identified as 21-year-old Roberto Laudisio Curti. A statement from his family says he was looking forward to continuing his university studies and playing soccer in Australia. The family is now awaiting the results of the police investigation into Roberto's death. The national average for one litre of petrol is on track to break the $1.50 mark for the first time in three years over the next fortnight. The price of E10 is already $1.57 a litre in Sydney, hitting drivers hard. Before Christmas it was about 59 cents a litre, now it's up over 80. Threats to oil supplies in the Middle East and improving economic conditions in the US are behind the sudden jump in prices. Any revolt against the mining tax will have the support of the West Australian Government. One of Australia's richest men, mining boss Andrew Forrest, believes the tax is unconstitutional. WA Premier Colin Barnett says he'll back any High Court challenge against the new laws. If there is a challenge then the West Australian government will intervene. In other words, we will appear and present a West Australian Government point of view. He says West Australians are angry the wealth of the mining boom is largely benefiting the other states. Finance news now

Libby Trickett will compete at her third straight Olympics after finishing fifth in the 100m freestyle at the trials in Adelaide last night. The effort earned Trickett a spot on our 4 x 100m freestyle relay team. To have seen 5th, umon the scoreboard and to know that I'dchieved what I was dreaming of and what Luke was dreaming of and helping me achieve, um, it's the best. Good on you, Libby. Geoff Huegill's through to tonight's 100m butterfly final but Michael Klim's comeback is over after he missed the final of the same event. Australia is locked in battle with the West Indies in game three of the one-day series in St Vincent this morning. The top order struggled again but half-centuries from Mike Hussey and George Bailey helped the visitors post a decent total of 220. And stand-in skipper Shane Watson has stepped up with the ball, snaring three top order scalps snaring three top-order scalps to give the Aussies a real shot at victory. Majak Daw is back training with North Melbourne after a 6-week club-imposed exile.

And Fremantle has announced Victoria Cross recipient Corporal Ben Roberts-Smith as its new number one ticket holder. Roberts-Smith has been an avid Dockers fan since their inception in 1995. Boy, imagine him stepping into the rooms to give the players before that. Pulling the shirt up, exactly right, they will be ready to go, the Dockers. Grant is in Townsville have a look. How is it? Quite remarkable, we are in Lilypilly Dockers. Grant is in Townsville to

Street in vounsant, one of the suburbs -- in Vincent. The level of destruction is extreme. When you look how quite large trees were ripped down and the roots torn from the ground. Powerpoles bent under the force of what can be the eye of the tornado, $ the tornado, $200km/h. So the level of debris is extreme. Window awnings found tangled amongst powerpoles. Residents bunkered did you Residents bunkered down in their own bathrooms to avoid the flying debris and glass that is normally associated with a tropical cyclone. It is remarkable. Yet, go two streets that way and you with barely even know there was any weather event. The bins are still standing where they are put out the night before, not blown over. This thing was fairly selective but it has cut a path over four suburbs. a path over four suburbs 25 homes have lost their roofs, it is to be an extensive clean-up today and tomorrow.

A monsoon low is causing heavy rain and flooding in northern Queensland. Onshore winds are bringing showers to the South-East Queensland and New South Wales coasts I think the most unique about this, how terrifying it would have been in one of these houses but the fact the total duration was merely 10 minutes. It came like that and was gone just as fast. But the damage left behind, quite remarkable for those in Townsville yet again this morning. Mpgts it is important to make that point. I had a number of small business owners in that region saying hey, people are not coming up here thinking of Yasi, we are open for business. As you say, Grant, it is very selective.

More people could impact the housing market Falling property prices mean home owners are being stripped of their borrowing power. Basically, the less your house is worth the less your bank will lend you. Around the country, house prices have fallen an average of 5.5%. Property expert Louis Christopher from SQM Research is here to give us his tips for refinancing. Good morning. We mentioned that house prices are down 5.5% nationally Can come as a rude shock to homeowners when they go back to the bank and the bank goes, " bank and the bank goes, "Not Worth as much. Maybe we'll cut your loan." If they look in their lending contract, if there is a clause in the banks can make a call on the property if the so-called-loan to Value ratio is too low so the bank could say, cough in money to bring it back to square or we could repossess. So do thrihave a general rule of thumb if you are in a place that has been hit hard like the Gold Coast. They could target an area, given the house price falls on Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast, the banks who have a large exposure given the house price falls on the

could target those areas. But so far, from what we can see the banks are being rather lenient. But when the banks get into trouble, that's when they start calling in these kinds of loans. The credit department says we will stop lending here, here and here, look at the loans in the areas. They are just blanket decisions. What are your tips on refinancing? If you are going to refinance, make sure you have a very good credit history. So, make sure you are paying your electricity bills and phone bills on time. The first thing the banks do is lock at your credit history. Two, try to get the outstanding amount youo down with your dpisting lending provider. That makes additional payments over and payments over and above what payments over and above what you are paying. Sure, times are tough and it is hard but it is worthwhile. What is good? People have said to me you should shoot for 30% equity in your house, then you are probably safe from banks giving you the call? would be nice, Kochie. Sadly, many people, especially those first home from banks giving you the call? That

buyers who bought in 2009 with the federal government's scheme bought with 5% equity base with 5% equity base that is why we are having the troubles coming now. So try to get to the 30? Yes, try to get to the 30% are having the troubles coming up

try to get to the 30%. The Queen has addressed the British Parliament overnight to mark her 60 years on the throne. During the landmark speech, the monarch paid tribute to Prince Philip and vowed to rededicate herself to public service. Tim Ewart reports. She's normally here to outline the government's plans for the year ahead, but this was the Queen in her own words. Marking 60 years on the throne, in the splendor of Westminster Hall, there is a new stained-glass window, parliament's jubilee gift to her. She gave them a gentle reminder she has seen many politicians come and go. Since my asession, I have been a visitor to Westminster and have the pleasure of meeting with 12 prime ministers. Politicians may be Prince Philip has always been at her Politicians may be transient but side. During these years as your qeeup, the support of my family -- at your Queen, the support of my family beyond generations has been beyond measure. Prince Philip is, I believe, well known for declining compliments of any kind.

A new smartphone app is set to transform how asthmatics manage their condition. and can alert them if they're at risk of an attack. The app records things like how often a person takes their inhaler and what triggers their symptoms. It also provides reminders to take medication. Later versions will include remote and interactive asthma management between a patient and their doctor. Mike Thomas is the CEO of iSonea, which created AsthmaSense. Good morning. This really sounds quite amazing, and obviously, will be able to help a lot of people? Absolutely, this will be the most comprehensive asthma app on the market. We have done comprehensive research to pin point what is missing and to better manage their disease after they leave the doctor's office. Smart phone technology is blowing us away. Do you reckon it could be the future of health care where we interact with the devices instead of going to the doctor? Absolutely. Nearly 250 million health app down loads in 2012 alone. Everybody leaves the house with three things, your keys, your wallet and your wallet and your smart phone. It is becoming a very practical tool for patients to better manage their diseases. But underlining in conjunction with your health offic? Not replacing doctors? Yes, just a tool. We will release it in May in national asthma awareness month. Are there other apps to help you with health issues? There is quite a few in diabetes and heart disease and some of them in imaging. There are not many in respiratory diseases which is why Isonea sees that an area. There is a lot in diabetes. Thank you. What a great idea. Smart phone, smart apps.

SES crews and Water Police will head back onto the Nepean River, north-west of Sydney this morning, searching for a man who's boat capsized. The 25-year-old was on the water near the Yarramundi Bridge at around 8:00 when his boat overturned. His friend, who was on the shore, raised the alarm. He swam out to the boat but was unable to find his mate. A large scale search was called off late last night but will resume today. The Defence Force has been called to storm-devastated North Queensland to help in the clean-up. About 60 families in Townsville have been told it could be days or even weeks before power is restored. Many were caught completely off guard when the freak storm hit. No warning, I just heard the thunder, and next thing you know I've got no roof. Some residents will have to wait until it stops raining to see if their homes can be repaired. The family of a young Brazilian man who died after being tasered by police in Sydney say they will miss him immensely. They've released a statement overnight as police work to piece together exactly what happened. These are the final images of Roberto Laudisio Curti before he died after being tasered on a Sydney street. It's not the way he will be remembered by his family. In a statement released last night Roberto's family wrote: It's believed Roberto's family have engaged a Sydney legal firm to investigate his death. That matter we'll investigate the entire circumstances of the incident including the use of the tasers. The 21-year-old was in Sydney studying English. but the incident on Sunday morning when at least three police officers fired their stun guns at Roberto has now made international headlines. Police are still trying to piece together This investigation will report to the coroner and the coroner will ultimately decide.

The New South Wales Ombudsman's office confirmed it would independently oversee the investigation. A young surfer's been taken to hospital with a wound to his leg after being attacked by a shark on the Gold Coast. 20-year-old William O'Leary was catching waves at Nobbys Beach yesterday afternoon when he was bitten.

It's believed schools of baitfish have attracted small sharks closer to shore. The true cost of electricity in Australia has been revealed with new research showing we pay 130% more than Canadians. The research claims household charges are already 70% higher than in America. We also pay more than people in Japan, France, Britain, Ireland and New Zealand. The new information will form the basis of a major report to the Energy Users Association, which argues the way power prices are set. Let's get more finance.

Manly must decide today whether to challenge the grading of the dangerous tackle suspension handed to Tony Williams. Williams can accept a 7-match ban with an early guilty plea But if the Sea Eagles try their luck at the judiciary, the back rower could be out for 10 matches. There was no intent but it was all in the motion, you know, I didn't mean to do it, but it happened. Hopefully, nothing too serious happens. The suspension will be cut to five matches if Manly can successfully argue for a downgrade. Greater Western Sydney coach Kevin Sheedy has promised to have some suprises in store for the Swans Sheedy even joked that his shock tactics could include playing NRL convert Israel Folau on Swans skipper Adam Goodes.

Grant is in Townsville, I can see there is a lot of clean-up under way today had Once the sun starts to come up and you get an understanding how the couple of suburbs were affected, Vincent, a few people getting ready to go to work, they had to cut a path down their own streets and driveways to get out this morning. Debris everywhere. Powerlines are down. Quite a dangerous scenario as they come to grips with what was a terrifying morning this time yesterday when the mini tornado carved itway through. But the tropical low that is responsible for the intense weather in tropical Queensland is now moving south. 600 mL in rain is now moving down to central Queensland and South-East Queensland as we look at the rest of the country. Sunrise Weather brought to you by the LED Super Sale at Beacon Lighting. Super savings on LED lights, fans and more, with 30% off your second item. Let's take a look at the wild weather in detail now. And North Queensland is being lashed by the heaviest rain so far this wet season. Townsville residents are in clean-up mode after they were hit by a massive storm. Up to 60 homes were damaged and 25 houses had their roofs blown off. The region is still on alert, with more rain to come. A severe weather warning extends further south and west, including the cities of Mackay, Rockhampton and Longreach. Grant is still with us from Townsville, Sunrise correspondent Michelle Tapper is in Mackay and senior meteorologist Tom Saunders is at the Weather Channel. Grant, how bad is the damage and how are residents faring? How isolated? Well, it is quite remarkable. What has become obvious now we do have some daylight is just how selective the path was. You could almost draw a line through the houses that copped the most amount of damage. You can see it has had a deliberate path. The debris is in large volumes but a very select area. About four suburbs in total, the powerlines entangled in a lot of debris. Power down in many areas. But it is quite psychoown But it is quite But it is But it Cyclone Yasi esc, if you like, of the most damaged houses, the car just going off for work now, smashed Cyclone Yasi esc, if you like, two

back window. So they are driving damaged cars off to work this morning. Fences blown down, 25 roofs have gone. Power will be a massive issue for quite a few weeks coming. This is quite an extraordinary amount of damage. But once again, just through a couple of select suburbs. This was a mini tornado, rather than a very widespread, all-incompanys tropical cyclone. Local businesses are keen for us to mention the area is open for business, just the isolated spots for the clean up. Just a couple of streets. Let's go to Mackay, Michelle, is it still raining? How is it looking where you are? Good morning, Mel, well it has been just bizarre here. It was quiet and peaceful like this and torrential rain just started bucketing down, almost got flooded. We were sitting in the car right here. The water rain just started bucketing down, we

rose so quickly, it was knee deep, I couldn't get out of the car and we had to move over there. In the last 15 minutes the water has gone down from my knees to the ground. I did have shoes on, sorry about the S problems here, I don't have rain boots. You can see the frightening have shoes on, sorry about the OH &

ferocity of the rain comes down, how quickly things can flood hoar. Unfortunately this region is expecting another 200 mL of rain today. The pioneer River is supposed to peak just after 12 o'clock today. Depending on how much rain happens this morning there could be minor flooding around Mackay. There is flooding further up stream, towns like mount Vincent rr who had over 3 mLs in the last 24 -- 300 mLs and Walkerston, had 186 mLs of rain. School children had to be tractored across the creek to get home. There was a swift-water rescue out here last night. Two boats were called as a car was swept off the road. After what we have seen here this morning, I can understand just how quickly it can happen. One minute the street is empty and clear like this, the next minute, knee-deep in water. Some very dangerous situations, indeed. Tom, can you explain it for all? What is causing the rain. For the areas that need to know, when it is going to stop? The rain is due to a tropical low moving slowly south

through the south. Because it is moving south, the severe flash flooding warning has been cancelled for Townsville and Cairns. The most severe weather in Queensland will be the central part of the state. In the last hour, Mackay has picked up formm of rain. Inland from Mackay, 350mm in the last 24 hours. We expecting another 100mm for some parts of the central Queensland 350mm in the last 24 hours. We are

coast and rain in the central Highlands and the central west. The low will move south. Tomorrow the low will be in the south-east corner of Queensland and Friday of Queensland and Friday it will move off the coast and finally allowing the rain to ease up. I know the locals are used to it and to expect it, but gosh, it has been astonishing. Thank you all, and Grant, we will check in with you in about half an hour, thank you. A 20-year-old man is recovering after being attacked by a shark on the Gold Coast. It happened late yesterday at Nobbys Beach. The surfer was taken to Gold Coast Hospital and remains in a stable condition. Seven News reporter Bianca Stone has the full story. Bianca, good morning. How lucky was he? Well, Nat, Billy O'Leery was incredibly lucky to be bitten by a bull shark and still be able to make it into shore. He heard he was surfing at his local break late yesterday afternoon when friends say he came off a wave directly on top of the shark, it bit him on the lower left leg and he got into shore where he was helped by local lifeguards. He was smiling and laughing and able to give the cameras the thumbs up. Do you know what condition he is? He is sleeping soundly at the moment, I have check would the hospital. She had surgely -- he had surgery last night and they say he is in a stablecussion. Lucky him. Z -- in a stable condition. A new report this morning is highlighting the cost of electricity. It's found we're paying more for power than people in many other countries. Electricity's already 70% higher than the US and 130% more than Canadians. South Australia has the most expensive power in the country, following by New South Wales and Victoria. And it's claimed the average household power bill will rise a further $150 in the first 12 months after July's introduction of the carbon tax. And there's bad news for drivers this morning, with petrol prices still soaring. In Sydney the cost of unleaded has now hit almost $1.57 per litre. Some servos have hiked their price by 18 cents. In Melbourne it's up to $1.60 at the pump. Prices have been rising steadily across the country since the end of last year, with only a brief lull in February. But the pain isn't going to stop here. The national average price for unleaded is currently $1.43 and it's predicted to hit $1.55 by the weekend. Peter Khoury is from the NRMA. What's going on, why are prices shooting up so fast? Yes, look, unfortunately last we had what you consider the perfect storm when it came to petrol prices. Yes, look, unfortunately last week

We saw MOGAS prices increase, the international bench price and Aussie dollar dropped. Those two international bench price and the factors saw prices increase substantially. An average increase this week of 3 cents a litre as opposed to the week before. That is unfortunately what is causing the prices to increase so dramatically. Withey stay high or go higher? We expect them to stay where that are for the next couple of weeks. It doesn't take into consideration with the cycle, the prices will come down next week. As part of the cycle we expect prices to fall this time next week by 10 to 12 cents a litre on average. If motorists can average. If motorists can until next week they will save 12 cent a litre and then prices will readjust and then prices will be back to what we have seen for the last few days. Thank you, a good tip. A state funeral will be held to honour the life of football legend Jim Stynes. Jim passed away during the show yesterday after a 3-year battle with cancer. His wife Sam says it was dignified and peaceful and Jim was surrounded by family. He was just 45. Jim Stynes was born in Ireland in 1966. A talented footballer, he moved to Australia in 1984. He made his debut for the Melbourne Football Club three years later and never looked back. Stynes played a record 244 consecutive matches - 11 years without missing a match. In 1991 he became the first player raised outside Australia to win the Brownlow Medal. But Jim Stynes didn't just leave his mark on the football field. In 1994 he established the Reach Foundation to support troubled youth. In 2008 he returned to a struggling Melbourne Football Club and became president. Despite being told he had cancer just a year later he managed to stabilise the club and wipe out $5 million in debt. In 2009 Stynes spoke to 'Sunday Night' about his diagnosis. I don't as much go into, 'Why me?', I go into 'Can you believe this?' I just never would have thought that this would happen to me. I always laugh about it, you just get back on get back on about it. Stynes had to undergo more than 20 operations to remove tumours from his brain and stomach. In an emotional interview with Neil Mitchell on 3AW late last year, Jim and his wife Sam opened up about their most private fears. Sometimes I sit with Sam and I'll just start crying because I know what I'll miss out on and that gets hard. The news of Jim's passing led to an outpouring of grief on social media sites. Champion cyclist and cancer survivor Lance Armstrong was just one of the thousands to pay tribute on Twitter, saying "Rest in peace, Jim Stynes. We'll miss you mate." Prime Minister Julia Gillard also passed on her condolences. A person of great courage and someone who even in the depth of his illness, took it the time to inspire others. Jim Stynes leaves behind his wife, Sam, and two young children. I love life and I don't want to miss out on it. Yes, he will be sadly missed in so many circles. A number of clubs are planning to mark his many circles. A number of footy passing with players wearing black arm bands this weekend. Our sincere sympathies to his family. There's been a happy ending to one of swimming's great comeback stories. Libby Trickett has booked her ticket to London after finishing fifth in the 100m freestyle at the selection trials in Adelaide. Libby's described it as the finest moment of her swimming career. Sunrise Sport's Jim Wilson is in Adelaide. Jim, a very happy Libby Trickett? We adore Lebby. She is so happy and seemed so proud of what she achieved? You are right, Mel. She described it as the finest moment of her career. She has climbed the mountain and won Olympic gold she said, " she said, "Considering the journey since my come back in 2010, this is mountain and won Olympic gold but

better." since my come back in 2010, this is better.". It is tough, it is something the great Ian Thorpe couldn't do, Michael Klim couldn't do, Libby has made a third consecutive Olympic Games. For the winner, she gave the sport away in 2010, had gulandural fever, through the tulle in, went for a swim one afternoon with friends on the Gold Coast and thought, " Coast and thought, "I don't mind this sport, I might get back into it." this sport, I might get back into it.". It is what fairytaleerise made of. A great story. Let's listen to a very emotional Libby Trickett after her race. After you touched the wall, what gives the range of emotions, looking at the scoreboard? Try to find Luke? Um, yes, damn it, I was going to be really composed here and then you got me going. Um, to have seen 5t up on the scoreboard and to know that I'd achieved what I was dreaming of and what Luke was dreaming of and helping me achieve, it's the best. There is no other way to describe it but being the best. There is only one moment that ever surpasses that and that is our wedding day. But to see 5th and to know that we got there together in the end and I was able to achieve that for him, as well as for me, the most rewarding feeling you could ever experience, I think. Go, Libby. She is so likable and endearing. We wish her all the best. Let's talk about Geoff Huegill. How will he go? Yes, he does, actually, she had me, a 6 foot 5 a 6 foot 5 bloke in tears after that. But Geoff Huegill is terrific. You are a softy. I know I am. He has got his work cut out. Impressive last night, certainly, 5th fastest qualifier, Chris Right is the man to beat, he must finish top two to get on the plane to London, fingers crossed for him. Thank you. We were actually planning on catching up with Stephanie Rice this morning but she has been training terribly hard and sends her apologies. enough, middle of competition, exhausted. and sends her apologies. Fair

with an address to both houses of the British Parliament. She pointed out she's worked with 12 prime ministers and she acknowledged the one person who's been there throughout her 60 years, Prince Philip. Prince Philip, is, I believe, well known for declining compliments of any kind. But throughout he has been a constant strength and guide. LAUGHTER We are reminded of our past, of the connuity of our national story and the virtues of resilience, ingenuity and tolerance which created it.

Which contestant has ended up in hospital? We have the exclusive, shortly. It's very despriptive. News time first though, here's Nat. A major search operation is resuming this morning for a man who went missing after his boat capsized in Sydney's north-west. It's been nearly 12 hours since the 25-year-old was last seen. His aluminium runabout overturned near the Yarramundi Bridge on the Nepean River last night, throwing him into the water. A friend, who was on shore at the time, swam out to the boat but couldn't find his mate. Marine Area Command and the SES are assisting in the search. Townsville residents whose homes received a direct hit during a freak storm are being promised relief. Queensland Premier Anna Bligh put her election campaign on hold to tour the disaster zone. Affected residents will now have access to one off payments. Oh, this is just awful. This is far worse in this suburb than anything that Yasi delivered. The SES and the army have been called in to the worst hit areas to help locals with the massive clean-up. Rescue crews were forced to cut the roof off a car last night to help a man after he slammed his vehicle into a fence outside of Melbourne. The driver came off the road at Pakenham, crashing through the fence and into a paddock. He was trapped for some time before being pulled from the wreckage. It's believed he suffered spinal injuries and was taken to hospital. Students and teachers across France have held a minute's silence to remember the three children and teacher gunned down by a serial killer at their school in the south of the country. A national manhunt is underway. The man, believed to be a trained marksman, reportedly had a camera around his neck during the attack. He's also being blamed for the murders of three soldiers last week. Libby Trickett will compete at her third straight Olympics after finishing fifth in the 100m freestyle at the trials in Adelaide last night. The effort earned Trickett a spot on our 4 x 100m freestyle relay team. To have seen fifth on the scoreboard and to know that I'd achieved what I was dreaming of and what Luke was dreaming of Geoff Huegill's through to tonight's 100m butterfly final but Michael Klim's comeback is over after he missed the final of the same event. Australia is locked in a tight battle with the West Indies in the third one-dayer in St Vincent. Half-centuries from Mike Hussey and George Bailey helped the visitors post a modest total of 220. But our bowling attack has stepped up with three wickets from Shane Watson giving Australia the upper hand. Recalled spinner Nathan Lyon snared the crucial wicket of big hitter Kyron Pollard. Majak Daw is back training with North Melbourne after a 6-week club-imposed exile. The Sudanese-born youngster was suspended for going out to a nightclub while injured, then lying about it to coach Brad Scott. And Fremantle has announced Victoria Cross recipient Corporal Ben Roberts-Smith as its new number one ticket holder. Roberts-Smith has been an avid Dockers fan What a great choice as a No.1 ticket holder too, boy, Oh, boy. And Grant is in Townsville to check on the devastation there. How is it looking? Mate, unbelievably peaceful, quiet and tranquil. So different to yesterday. We are talking about how selective the path of destruction was yesterday. It gives you an idea, it looks like a truck has run directly thru the back yards of these homes here. You can see even the debris in the tree, and the ferocity with which it struck is remarkable. The lightpole to the right, just ripped off, where it has ended up. We've got right, just ripped off, who knows Rebecca here, most of the houses here in Vincent in Townsville have kind of ended up in her front yard, unfortunately. As she stands now, ready almost to go to work, next to a car that ain't going to work. No. What was it like when it first struck? Did you get much warning? No, no warning. When it came, what was it like? Pretty scary. All happened within five minutes. Yes, very scary. Was it noisy? very scary. Was it noisy?, wild? Did you understand how bad it would be? No, didn't realise. I thought it was a bit of rain and wind. And it was gone in 10 minutes? Under 10 minutes. What was it like when you walked out and saw your neighbourhood? Pretty shocked. Is everyone OK in terms of your family and neighbours? From what I am told, everyone is OK. And the roof off next door. Do you consider yourself lucky? Yes, lucky, very lucky it is a new roof. What you going to do about the car? Buy a new one, I guess. Got no choice. Sorry to see it hit so hard and of course, so much damage at the front of your house. Good luck getting on your feet. Hopefully, there is a whole heap of state-wide support coming your heap of state-wide support coming your way. Let's look at the forecast around Australia.
