Operation get-the-backhoe-back resumes tomorrow. Peter Harvey, Nine News. A man who endured humiliation and bullying during his high school years in Tamworth

has been awarded compensation from the State Government. Kevin Wilde was at court for the judgement.

Kevin what are the details? Peter, 30-year-old David Gregory has won almost $469,000 in damages after suffering severe bullying and bashing from older boys while attending Farrer High in Tamworth. He was seeking upwards of $2 million but once ongoing medical costs and legal fees are paid, the final amount may get close to $1 million. David spoke briefly outside court. I just need to have some time, let this settle in and then I can start thinking and start going from there. Are you relieved that it's all over? I am relieved it's all over, thank you. In her 112-page judgement, Justice Elizabeth Fullerton described what happened to David as "sustained mistreatment, overt and insidious emotional brutality "which he had no defence". The State Government accepts and regrets what happened to David and says senior students no longer have any role in disciplining younger students. David now works as a barista at his family's cafe on the South Coast. This judgement will no doubt set a precedent for potentially many more bullying cases, Peter. A sophisticated gang of Romanian thieves is cleaning out bank accounts across Sydney. So far, they've netted at least $3 million by using a skimming device attached to an ATM. It's as easy as following instructions. Pressing a few buttons and walking away with the cash.

The problem is, it's been just as simple for thieves - the card details captured by a skimming device, a camera records the pin number. In this case the information is sent to Romania, and the bank account is drained. They'd taken $500 here and $500 there all from Romania and it was about $2,200. They'd cleaned everything out. The gang targets up to 40 ATMs at a time and it's a lucrative business. Their estimated haul - $3 million and counting. We're talking of substantial amounts of money. A skimming device on this ATM was undetected for more than a month. It's a St George ATM, It's not of those little weird ones you find in the convenience stores so I thought it was trustworthy, but clearly not. The Fraud Squad has set up a task force. Seven Romanians have already been arrested. The devices are very sophisticated, they're made particularly for particular models of ATM. So what can you do to make sure you're not giving a statement to the Fraud Squad? First of all, make sure there is no skimming device where you put your card in. Check there is no camera up the top pointing to the keypad. Always cover your hand when you put in your PIN number. Most important of all, check your statements. Denham Hitchcock, Nine News. Police have arrested the mother of the man at the centre of the Cronulla Sharks fraud scandal. Lesley Elford has been charged with money laundering. Her son, Clint, is accused of a $500,000 life insurance scam, in which he gave money to organisations including Oxfam and the Sharks. A man in his 70s has survived three of the coldest nights this year, lost in the bush north of Wollongong. He was found this morning alive but suffering badly from his ordeal. The man had been missing since Tuesday. The search was getting desperate and involved the dog squad, choppers, 50 workers with the SES. But this was the moment he was found by two trail bike riders. Just riding through the bush, going for a trail ride and we saw the gentleman lying face-down in the mud like he spent the night, and pretty cold. 71-year-old Bruce Ludbrook was conscious

but was suffering badly from hypothermia. A paramedic was dropped from a chopper to assess his condition. Mr Ludbrook had spent three nights in the bush.

Temperature was around seven degrees and he didn't have warm clothes. Have you got any pain anywhere?

Only in the legs at the moment. He'd gone for a walk near the escarpment north of Wollongong, and had got lost. He doesn't really remember where he's been or how he's gotten to where he is. Certainly those conditions would have been horrendous for anyone. Mr Ludbrook was bundled up and carried a short distance to an ambulance. He's recovering in hospital but police say another night and he would have been lucky to survive. Mark Burrows, Nine News. And in breaking news, Australia has had it's first reported case of a death from swine flu. The victim is a 26-year-old West Australian man.

He was transferred from Alice Springs to the Royal Adelaide Hospital on Monday. He was diagnosed with the virus yesterday but his condition deteriorated overnight.

Princes William and Harry have been having a good laugh at each other. The royal ribbing came as they spoke about the serious business of flying military helicopters and William's apparent desire to serve on the front line. Their aim is to truly become brothers in arms.

Prince Harry had his war experience in Afghanistan

and Prince William, a RAF helicopter rescue pilot,

believes that's now opened the door for him to do the same. In my eyes, if Harry can do it, then I can do it. I don't really separate us as that much different. I think as the future head of the armed forces, it's really important that I at least get the opportunity to be credible and to do the job that I signed up for. 24-year-old Harry, who's in the army, is following big brother and is just about to go solo for the first time in a chopper. I'm really enjoying it and, as everyone knows, it is my easiest way of getting back onto the front line and maybe safer, maybe not safer, I don't know. But stick two matey brothers together and it's not long before the serious stuff of piloting

gets lost amongst the "I'm better than you are" and yes, even the bald jokes. He's definitely got more brains than me, I think we've established that from school, but when it comes to all that, I'm much better hands-on.

I've got more brains and looks as well. And baldness. REPORTER: Did you just have a dig at his baldness? At his what, sorry? His baldness! His baldness? It's pretty rich coming from a ginger so I'm quite happy to take that on, it's fine. He's a good looking ginger, it's alright. Back at home at the palace, washing up is always someone else's job. But here, where they're sharing a flat -

He does do a bit of the washing up, but he leaves most of it in the sink

and then it comes back in the morning and I have to wash it up.

Oh, the lies. He snores a lot as well, keeps me up all night long.

Three quarters of Australian teenagers are not getting enough sleep on school nights. The experts are blaming it on modern technology such as mobile phones. Like many teenagers, 15-year-old Madeleine Dawes has experienced terrible bouts of insomnia. I would try to get to bed at 10:30 at night, but would stay awake for hours. She would fall asleep in maths. 316 teenagers were involved in a survey by the University of South Australia. Three-quarters of them reported not having enough sleep during school nights, and the use of electronic devices in the bedroom was largely to blame. The worst are mobile phones. The research shows huge percentages of kids are texting well after midnight on weeknights. Computers are also a problem. They emit blue light which suppresses a sleep hormone called melatonin. Older teenagers need as much sleep as children who are several years younger. Losing as little as half an hour of sleep each night

can affect their mood and even their IQ. For kids that are failing academically and cognitively at school, sleep for them becomes critically important. Teenagers being treated for insomnia are told not to use the devices in their bedroom and even an hour before going to sleep. Other measures saved Madeleine from broken slumber. I have hot milk at night. A hot bath. Gabriella Rogers, Nine News. A Continental Airlines jet has landed safely after the Captain died of a heart attack midway through a trans-Atlantic flight from Belgium. A doctor travelling in the First Class cabin was unable to save the 60-year-old pilot. The tragedy was kept secret from economy passengers. It's probably better. I think a lot of people would have panicked. I think it would have been a really rough flight if we had known. The co-pilot brought the Boeing 777 home safely, assisted by a relief pilot, who travels on all long-haul journeys.

A frightening scene from the American Midwest, as tornadoes went on a rampage. 23 separate twisters struck the region in one day, but thankfully, no serious casualties. The spread of damage included a freight train which was hurled off the tracks. The weather front also produced ferocious hail storms, which forced people to flee for shelter. This woman's account of life as a refugee has moved Angelina Jolie to shed a tear.

The actress works for the UN in refugee support, and admits she's often overcome by the tragic stories of displaced people. So today, on World Refugee day, I thank them, for letting me into their lives and I thank you for coming. Jolie says refugees should not be seen as a burden, rather, as new contributors to countries which give them shelter. Stephanie Brantz is next with sport and it's the Bulldogs versus the Panthers, in Friday Night Footy. We'll speak live to Penrith coach Matt Elliott, after the break. Also, another injury scare for the Blues, five days out from Origin II. And a victory for the ages as Egypt downs World Champions Italy. At Holden, we're helping everyone realise the dream of buying a new car with the Holden Owner's Grant. So the Colorado manual LX 4x4 crew cab with 3-tonne towing capacity and dual airbags is now just $36,390 driveaway thanks to the grant. And if you're a small business, could save you even more. If you've dreamed of owning the keys to a new Holden, make it happen with the Holden Owner's Grant. Friday night football is at ANZ Stadium tonight, for the clash between the Bulldogs and the Panthers. When they last met in Round 2, neither side picked up any competition points after the Bulldogs were stripped of the match for fielding 14 men.
