Tonight, the flood emergency -

whole towns evacuated as the far

north coast is declared a disaster

zone. It's like everybody in that

caravan park, they've got nothing

left - they've lost the lot.

killer who refuses to reveal the

location of their daughter's body.

burial location.

And swine flu spreads further,

forcing authorities to raise the

alert level.

Good evening. I'm Bill Woods. And I'm Sandra Sully.

Also tonight, crisis talks for the

Cronulla Sharks as they fight to

stay in the NRL.

And the Salvos appeal for people to

dig deep as more families turn to

them for help.

But first, thousands of residents

ordered to evacuate, as the worst

floods in years swamp major towns

Lismore. Amelia, a crucial deadline

is approaching. That is correct.

The Clarence River, it is rising

rapidly. A massive evacuation

effort is under way. Grafton has

already been cut off by major

flooding at the Pacific Highway.

There is no way in from the north.

There is limited access from the

south. The region has been declared

a natural disaster area by the

Premier, along with much of the

north coast. Emergency crews are

struggling to get in there. It is

too hazardous to fly in. They are

managing to get people out. 9,000

residents are being evacuated and

taken to Ballina and Coffs Harbour.

The reason for that is the Clarence

River rising extremely quickly. It

is expected to peak at eight metres

at 11pm tonight. The problem is the

levy is 7.9 metres. That is an

enormous threat to the people of

this town. Emergency services are

trying to get everyone out. There

is no reprieve for the North Coast

72 hours after this weather began.

From the sky, the full extent of

the devastatation is revealed - the

north coast inundated, floodwaters

filling valleys and cutting off

towns. Central Lismore has been

turned into an inland lake. Homes

and businesses are underwater. Wes

Thompson was luckier than some. He

evacuated his car sales yard last

night.

There was some relief, with the

Premier flying in to declare the

region a natural disaster zone.

In a previous life as an emergency

services minister, I have been here

for floods, but this is worse than

that occasion. Those with the local

knowledge told me its about a 1-in-

10-or-20-year event.

The people of Lismore need all the

help they can get. The arm station

behind me is pumping water from his

more backing to the reverse. It is

60 centimetres from the top. It is

still rising. The next challenge is

the massive mop-up. And, as the

weather cell moves south, there are

fears the Clarence River will be

next to break its bank.

Tim Bailey has the latest. This is

a very intense low pressure system.

We have another 24-48 hours. The

danger zone will be down to Port

Australia's swine flu alert level

has been raised, with 12 people now

confirmed to have the disease.

Authorities are convinced the

figure will rise, with a South

Australian family succumbing to the

virus and another scare at Sydney airport.

Struck down mid-flight - a 42-year-

old man rushed to hospital in

Sydney with suspected swine flu

after arriving from Hong Kong.

Other passengers were not told of the threat.

I think it would have been good to

have been informed, definitely.

In Victoria the number of confirmed cases almost doubled overnight.

We had four yesterday and seven

today, but there is no cause for

alarm.

A 25-year-old male and a 10-year-

old girl tested positive. She's a

classmate of one of three brothers

who contracted the strain in the US.

Her family is quarantined and her

school is now closed until at least

next Thursday. The latest victim is

a 17-year-old boy who returned to

school after being sick for five school after being sick for five

days. Authorities believe the risk

of infection of other students is low.

We are going through the process of identifying exactly which

classmates he may have had contact

with and for how long, so we can

apply the protocols on who should

be given anti-virals and who should

be placed in quarantine.

While no confirmed swine flu cases

have needed to be hospitalised,

there are concerns over the latest

cases. Authorities have been unable

to link the teenager to other swine

flu sufferers or recent

international travel. There is a

similar occurrence in Adelaide. A

15-year-old girl became South

Australia's first confirmed victim,

her school closed for at least a week.

It's a shock, yes. I don't know.

Authorities are still awaiting

results for a further 28 people across Australia.

A small number of those, we are

waiting results on where there's a

high likelihood that they will be

positive to swine flu.

They'll start a series of newspaper

and radio alerts about the threat

over the weekend. Andrew Leahy, Ten News.

The Cronulla Sharks have been given

extra time to convince league

bosses they should remain part of

next year's competition. And a

woman linked to reports of a team

sex scandal has angrily denied

she's a prostitute.

Desperate to clean up its image,

Cronulla was handing out freshly

cleaned suits to players today. But

with group sex, drug and financial

scandals hanging over the club, the

NRL boss is far from impressed.

In the current climate, anything

that damages the game's reputation

needs to be dealt with heavily.

He's now given the club until

Monday to explain its money woes

and the incident with CEO Tony

Zappia which injured a female

staffer. Also doing some explaining

today, adult shop owner Con Ange, today, adult shop owner Con Ange,

There's adult stores in the Shire.

They'd just go down the local adult

sex toys to be taken to the

Cronulla Sharks? No. I took a box

there, but inside that box was T- shirts.

And he says two women he took to a

Sharks game last season were not

prostitutes, rather sales reps for

an interstate brewery. Ten News has

spoken to one of the women, who

says she's appalled and offended by says she's appalled and offended by reports identifying her as reports identifying her as a sex

worker. She denies being scantily

clad, and says she never went

inside the Sharks locker room. Cronulla bosses weren't talking

today, but members voting in board elections were.

There's no point voting for these

directors. They're going to do the

same thing again. We're going to

end up with no money again.

I think three new faces on the

board will shake up a lot of things,

from people that have been there in the past.

Eight losses on the trot, the

Sharks will hoping their on-field

dramas at least can be ironed out

Sydney mother has been repeatedly

stabbed after giving a glass of

water to a stranger. Her alleged

attacker is also accused of trying

to strangle a pregnant woman.

38-year-old Ana Tabligan is

suffering for being a good

Samaritan. The mother of one was

stabbed six times to her head and

neck, after letting a stranger into

her house to give him a glass of

water. As she stood in her kitchen

filling a cup, she was attacked

from behind. The attack only

stopped when her boyfriend arrived

home. She will help everyone. She

didn't expect it, didn't deserve

this - no way, no way. Ana was

taken to Liverpool Hospital for

surgery, where she's being treated

for a fractured neck and multiple

stab wounds. Two hours later police arrested 36-year-old Raymond

Griffiths in a nearby street. He's

been charged with a string of

offences, including attempted

murder. The Mount Pritchard man was

refused bail in court this

afternoon. Ray Griffiths is also

accused of another attack. It's

alleged that three hours earlier,

he tried to strangle another woman.

Ten News understands she is three

months pregnant. Anna is expected

to stay in hospital till next week. But she's already vowed not to go

back to her Ashcroft home. She

doesn't even want to go back to her

unit - she can't, she's scared.

Evan Batten, Ten News. A

policewoman - bashed in the head

with a brick at Kings Cross - is

now talking and has taken her first

steps. The mother of two suffered a

fractured skull during the attack

as she walked to work last week.

Today her husband thanked hospital

staff. My wife is still in

intensive care but the news grows

more positive each day. I am

advised she progressing well along

the road to recovery. The family

has asked that the victim not be identified.

Titillating photos of young women

from the Liberal Party are at the

centre of a new political scandal.

But the man behind the website -

and even some of the women say the

critics can't take a joke.

Political argument aside - the

author of this blog says the

conservatives win because, quote,

"It has all the hot girls". But the scantily-clad young Liberals

pictured as proof have left the

party's leaders a little hot under

the collar. Disappointed -

unacceptable and I'm disgusted by

the blog responses it's received.

Opposition leader's media adviser

treated too seriously, quite

frankly. I mean, one view, I think

I could say to you David - I'm a

bit sorry I'm not young enough to

get on the list! Last year, Julia

Gillard made number 2 on men's

magazine 'Ralph's' list of the

hottest women in Australia but the

Prime Minister won't buy into the

debate over which party is more

attractive. I believe we have great

talent in the Australian Labor

Party, but in terms of the Liberal

Party there are others more

qualified to comment on this than

myself. It's all a lot of hot air,

according to some. People should be

joining political parties because

they're passionately committed to

improving the world - changing the

world - not because they could pick

up. Brad Hodson, Ten News.

It's been revealed high-profile

colleagues of Premier Nathan Rees

are headed to court. Ten News

understands Health Minister John

Della Bosca will be called to give

evidence in the Supreme Court.

He'll be summoned to answer

questions on what he knows about

the sacking of Former Labor

Minister Tony Stewart. The

Bankstown MP was spectacularly

dumped last year over claims he

abused a female staffer, now he's

trying to clear his name. It's

understood the head of the

Premier's department will also be

subpoenaed. At this stage, the

Premier won't be called to give

evidence. It's not just the

battlers - the Salvation Army says

there's been a dramatic rise in the number of middle-income families seeking help.

Appeal, the Salvos have enlisted

some big stars to encourage people

way from Tasmania. They even did

some kitchen duty before launching

the Salvation Army's annual Red

Shield Appeal. We've got to get

behind this appeal and raise as

much money as we can because I can

much money as we can because I can

see there is going to be more and

more people who need our support.

And they're not just your

traditional battlers. The Salvos

call them the new poor. People who

used to donate - but who are being

forced to put THEIR hands out. I

spent most of my time on a stool in

a pub on a pub stool and they'd

come in with a box, and I'd always

put in the box and say these people

save lives - never thought they'd

be doing it for me. The self-

employed businessman now donates

his time. So too does Stephanie -

after she was helped battling

depression. Since I've worked here

I realise the Salvation Army helps

people from all walks of life. The

Salvos expect the next 18 months to

be particularly tough, and in the

past four months alone they've

already started noticing a change

in the face of those that are

seeking help. People who have been

made redundant, lost their jobs,

can not pay their mortgages in this

area. They hope to raise $9 million

A recycling levy on new televisions

is being considered as part of a

breakthrough agreement to tackle Australia's growing electronic

waste. The move could increase the

cost of a new TV.

The number of televisions thrown

out in Australia is soaring as

consumers switch to digital sets

and spend their stimulus payments

on new screens.

Over the next few years we are

going to see an unprecedented

amount of televisions going into the waste stream.

Manufacturers and green groups have

a plan to tackle the problem. They

want to introduce a mandatory e-

waste recycling program, funded by

a levy on electrical goods. They

admit some manufacturers may pass

the cost onto consumers, but it's a

small price to pay.

It provides consumers with a very

simple way of dealing with their

computer, rather than it going into

the dump so it can leach out toxic chemicals.

And the Government is backing the

plan. At a meeting in Hobart,
