A very small boy charged with a very adult crime. An 11-year-old is facing serious jail time after being charged with armed robbery. He's accused of holding up a convenience store with a toy gun, making off with four packets of cigarettes. The 11-year-old is charged with holding up this convenience store, three counts of assault, and breaching bail.

The court heard he waited in the toilet, then took out his metal-coloured cap gun and approached the terrified female attendant. He told police: As the 11-year-old made his getaway, the court heard he warned the victim: After leaving the store, the police say he threw the gun in this creek

and rode home on his bike.

The cigarettes and lighter were hidden as well. His father stayed at home while his son faced court. The boy's lawyer told the court that the 11-year-old suffers from attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder plus oppositional defiance disorder. He's on medication for both conditions, but isn't taking it. Outside the court, his lawyer had little to say.

It's an awful case, isn't it?

I not going to comment on the case, I'm sorry.

He's an 11-year-old boy. The magistrate summed up the charges as: The gun hasn't been recovered. The police prosecutor successfully applied for bail to be refused. The boy was taken to a nearby juvenile detention centre ahead of another court appearance next month. Kevin Wilde, Ten News.

A heartbreaking return home today

for the husband of Australian cyclist Amy Gillett. He flew in from Germany with his wife's body, not yet ready to accept an apology from the young motorist who ran her down. As an Olympic rower and Australian cyclist, Amy Gillett would return from overseas trips draped in medals. Today, she came home in a casket, wrapped in the flag she loved.

Husband Simon made the heartbreaking trip from Germany with her, searching for positives from the tragedy. If there's a positive out of this, it's that we're not bringing back six people in the same way. That could easily have happened. Amy's five team-mates are still recovering in a German hospital. All are now conscious. Alexis Rhodes is still attached to a respirator, but doctors are hoping to remove it in the coming days.

The 18-year-old driver who ploughed into them has written a letter of apology

saying she remembers nothing of what happened.

Simon Gillett isn't ready to accept it. He says he still harbours too much anger towards her. I'd be lying if I said I didn't, but I'm not gonna pursue that track because that's not going to help me or anyone. And helping others is what he wants most, setting up the Amy Gillett Foundation. It will aid the rehabilitation of Amy's team-mates,

provide support for up-and-coming cyclists

and, most importantly, increase road safety awareness. When you go past a cyclist on the road, just go past them as if it's your daughter or son or wife or husband when you're passing and just give them a little bit of room. Amy Gillett's funeral will be held in Ballarat on Friday followed by a memorial service in Adelaide on August 5.

Dan Nolan, Ten News. Tim Webster with a look at sport and Lance Armstrong - what an inspiration. Yes, Deb, there are few sporting achievements greater than those of Lance Armstrong. He's won an unprecedented seventh consecutive Tour de France. The 33-year-old bows out today the greatest cyclist in the history of the Tour. On a rainy morning, American flags waved

and children perched high on their fathers' shoulders. They sought just a fleeting glimpse of the great Lance Armstrong, the courageous Texan whose remarkable journey is already the stuff of legend. ANNOUNCER: Lance Armstrong! Armstrong told us a few years back it wasn't about the bike. After seven years watching the best in the world chase him through the Pyrenees en route to the Champs-Elysees,

we know what he's talking about.

I'm a fan of the Tour de France for as long as I live and there are no secrets. This is the hardest sporting event and hard work wins it. So vive le Tour forever. Thank you. CHEERING There have been many to win cycling's greatest race. But no-one else has done it seven times. No-one else has done it after beating cancer. Diagnosed with testicular cancer in 1996,

it spread to his brain and lungs and forever altered his once-muscular frame. Holding a massive lead heading into the 21st and final stage, only an accident could've prevented Armstrong winning again. Disaster nearly struck on the Paris outskirts - a fallen team-mate almost taking the champ with him.

But to thunderous applause, on he rode one final time, all the while committed to the decision he'd made a few months before. The biggest inspiration in my life now and the biggest inspiration in this decision is my children. They're the ones that make it easier to suffer, but they're also the ones that have told me it's time to come home.

It was fitting, then, Armstrong's three children joined him on the podium as he waved goodbye. Lance Armstrong the cyclist, survivor and father is going home for good.

Brad McEwan, Ten News. And Aussie swim great Grant Hackett has also earnt a new place in international sporting history. Hackett's victory in the world 400m freestyle final made him the first swimmer to win gold medals at four world championships. The 400m was previously dominated by Ian Thorpe, of course. Thorpie is not competing at these titles. And one last lap of Lord's for Glenn McGrath

in a special family celebration after his man-of-the-match performance against England. Paying at the home of cricket for the last time, McGrath took nine wickets for the game in Australia's crushing victory. All the highlights of Australia's spectacular wicket haul a little later. Plus the Wests Tigers' hot streak. Still to come - the 'Big Brother' evictee in big trouble with the law.

Also tonight - football panic sparks high-level security talks. And later this hour - we go backstage at 'Australian Idol 3'. Definitely


This program is captioned live. A teenager accused of sexually assaulting two 15-year-old girls has been refused bail. Police claim Valentine Makakea threatened the victims

if they reported the alleged attack. Valentine Makakea is just 19 years old. But he faces life in prison if found guilty of the two charges now hang over him. It's alleged Makakea was with three girls

at a unit in Wiley Park last Wednesday night, having sex with two of the teens aged 15 without their consent. They were taken to hospital for treatment.

In applying for bail today, Makakea's lawyer told Burwood court

his client strongly denied the charges and that a significant amount of alcohol had been consumed on the night. And while he said it was true there was a suggestion of evidence of a sexual encounter, there were issues over consent being given along with questions about knowledge of the girls' age. But the Crown alleges Makakea made admissions about the victims not consenting. In arguing against bail, the Crown prosecutor said Valentine Makakea's lack of understanding

over the gravity of the case against him was incredible.

Facts tendered to the court said he showed no remorse and allege he made threats against the victims if they were to go to police. Magistrate Gary Still said the two charges of aggravated sexual assault were very serious, and with concern for the victims' safety, he remanded Makakea in custody. He can re-apply for bail in two weeks. Eddy Meyer, Ten News.

A lucky escape for a family in Sydney's west after a truck crashed into their home. The impact sending a shudder through the Gillroys' home, ripping open their lounge room and sending furniture from one side of the house to the other. Luckily the family were out at the time. My daughter and I were out shopping and basically we just pulled up at the front gate and to my surprise there's a truck in my front lounge room

and I'm just totally shocked. The driver of the truck wasn't injured in the crash. NRL, and Telstra Stadium officials are meeting police tonight to review security after the firecracker scare at the weekend Bulldogs game. The culprits are still at large, and authorities are calling on Canterbury supporters to help track them down. Detectives are carefully analysing the footage of the firecracker explosion. This camera angle, behind the stadium grandstand,

shows a group of youths mingling.

Then there's a series of sparks, followed by the large blast as the cracker goes off.

The noise was so loud, it even startled the players and referees. FIRECRACKER EXPLODES The incident has prompted a meeting tonight of police, the NRL, the Bulldogs and Telstra Stadium officials to discuss current security procedures at league matches. The potential for injury and also for scaring people

was so significant, you know, it was just crazy. The prank had extra significance because of the recent London bomb attacks. Many fans already had the jitters. The culprit hasn't been caught,

although many people claim to have seen him light the cracker. He went to another seat, another gate, 'cause we were in Gate E and he went in some other gate. It went off in the midst of the blue-and-white army. Now those fans are being asked to identify who did it.

Over the past 12 months, the Bulldogs have done a lot to change the way things have been done with their fans and they're doing everything they can to assist us

and bring the culprits in. Telstra Stadium management says bag searches at its NRL games are carried out at random. It's just too big a job to search everybody. Nevertheless, bag checks, surveillance camera coverage and security personnel levels are again under review. How smart is it to take a firecracker, that's illegal anyway,

and explode it there? You could have blown off your hand, let alone injure people around you.

It's mad. Shaun Fewings, Ten News.

New judge Kyle Sandilands tearing some contestants apart.

Some of these kids are genuinely devastated when they walk out of that room. They are literally sobbing. Yeah. Do you feel any remorse for making people feel like that?

None. But it's truthful. I would rather someone know the truth rather than try to pursue some sort of pipe dream for 10 years and waste their life. This year, 25,000 people laid it on the line for the judges.

(Sings) # With or without you... # Definitely without you. It's a no from me. From among this motley batch of wannabes,

I had a lot of trouble with Mark trying to keep some of the rock acts in. I don't know what his ear is, I don't know whether it's just deteriorated over time

because he's old. As for the eventual winner, there's some debate, after last year's Idol, Casey Donovan, failed to have the kind of sales enjoyed by Guy, Shannon, and even her runner-up, Anthony Callea.

Australia voted for her, they loved her, they fell in love with her. They made a great decision. And it made 'Australian Idol' different from the first year. And this year, they'll vote for someone completely different. But maybe not this different.
