(generated from captions) This program is captioned live. Tonight - crash chaos.

The Sydney ferry rough ride that left passengers shaken. The bizarre laughing gas experiment that claimed a man's life. And the punch that could knock Swans captain Barry Hall out of the Grand Final. Ten News with Ron Wilson and Jessica Rowe. Good evening, also tonight - the Sydney man accused of pilfering petrol from a service station. And the Aussie gold rush at the Emmy Awards. But first, chaotic scenes at Circular Quay this afternoon, the Manly ferry 'Collaroy' smashing into a wharf. It was a frightening ordeal for passengers, with some fearing a terrorirst attack. Two people needed medical treatment. A single blast of the horn was the only warning for commuters. The 'Collaroy', packed with 200 passengers from Manly, out of control, running towards a wharf at Circular Quay and another docked ferry. On the impact I got hit and we got thrown down the stairs. The 'Collaroy' slammed into the wharf, splintering the dock, smashing glass panels. Commuters feared the worst.

We thought there may have - it looked like it may be a terrorist strike or something going on. Maybe a terrorist strike. Passengers on the stationary ferry scrambled out of the way. We thought there was an evacuation on the ferry in front of us because everyone was flying off. It looked like a bomb scare. Our horn went off suddenly. We veered a little bit left and ran into the pontoon. Sydney Ferries says this is only cosmetic damage. The ferry master and staff have been alcohol and drug tested.

While almost all staff on board the 'Collaroy' have now been interviewed,

authorities still won't say what caused the crash.

Now no fewer than three separate investigations are under way Authorities hope to keep delays tonight to a minimum, extra buses put on to take peak commuters to Manly. Jetcats will replace the 'Collaroy'. The wharf will be closed for days. There are calls for Frank Sartor's resignation after the State Minister became embroiled in a racial row. State Political reporter Paul Mullins joins us. Paul, what's the Minister done to get him in so much trouble?

Jessica, it all started dug an

interview on Koori Radio this

Redfern and whether or not he'd

Mullins at State Parliament. A Sydney man is dead, a young woman fighting for her life in hospital after being poisoned by laughing gas. They were in a car filled with the nitrous oxide. Two other people dragged clear before suffering serious harm. Tolson Dimotski dead at only 38. Dragged from this sedan full of nitrous oxide

flowing from a gas bottle in the boot. Tolson's mate was taking the victim's dogs for a dawn walk when he saw the unconscious driver and rushed to help. Because I was screaming and bashing on the roof he just managed to open the lock. I would have smashed it anyway. He was pretty groggy. Michael called the ambulance and tried in vain to revive Tolson. Then he carried a 23-year-old woman passenger into his house giving her CPR until paramedics arrived. The woman's boyfriend, who was also in the back and closest to the gas bottle,

had by then recovered. They'd partied at a nightclub in Sydney before returning early yesterday. It's possible the car doors were locked Tolson was a very good friend, not just to me, but to a lot of people and he will be sorely missed and suffered by many. Terrible, terrible tragedy. He was my good neighbour. I only had to ask for something and he would be here. Senior police have confirmed that gas was leaking out of the bottle into the car from the hatchback's tiny boot.

And while they won't say if one of the victims turned on its tap, they do warn others not to play with laughing gas which as we know can be deadly despite its seemingly harmless name. A Sydney man's been charged with an unusual crime. With fuel prices soaring, he allegedly stole at least one 1,000 litres of diesel from his local service station. This is the man police allege has been helping himself to free fuel in the dark of night. The 36-year-old unemployed man has been charged with stealing 1,000 litres of diesel from an underground fuel tank at his local service station. From the outside this looks like a normal Toyota Hi-Ace van, but inside, a 1,000-litre plastic fuel tank held in place by a metal frame and occy straps, hoses and wires running from the rear of the vehicle to an electric fuel pump. That's the tubing there that goes through to the back here of it, which is connected to the battery. It's alleged he spent 15 minutes filling the tank

and then, taking a huge risk, he drove the van 200m, parking it outside his unit. Any type of disaster could occur - for instance, a collision with other vehicles. Extremely dangerous.

The alleged theft was spotted by security guards hired by Shell to covertly monitor the service station after the recent disappearance of a staggering amount of fuel. It's estimated over that 6-week period, 45,000 litres of fuel is unaccounted for. The station's selling diesel for $1.33 a litre, the value of the missing fuel more than $60,000. It wouldn't have been hard to hook up to the underground fuel tank - it's unlocked. The service station closes overnight and the surveillance cameras focus on the bowsers, not out the back. Detectives today raided the man's unit looking for clothes, tools and possible documents of sale. The recovered fuel has been driven back under police escort to Shell's Clyde refinery where it's being pumped back into the system. Shaun Fewings, Ten News. Sport with Tim Webster. And it's the unthinkable, the Swans could be without their captain for the Grand Final. Yes, it's a nervous wait for the Swans and their fans. The AFL Tribunal will decide the fate of big Barry. the Sydney skipper will find out tomorrow night if he'll miss this weekend's season decider. It's the most replayed punch in AFL history. to St Kilda's Matt Maguire. Barry Hall's tummy tickler to St Kilda's Matt Maguire. The Swans captain will fight the charge that carries a minimum 1-week penalty. If the tribunal finds him guilty tomorrow night of the level two striking charge, Hall will miss Saturday's Grand final against West Coast. Dedicated Swans fans queued overnight to get the last remaining tickets. We started queuing up at 1:00 yesterday afternoon, so it's 20 hours. I wouldn't sell these for the world.

Just to be there it's going to be fantastic. Even followers of other codes have got on board. Look at those beauties. Going to need some soft shoes, standing room only. But there's rarely ever enough tickets, and claims of Melbourne bias are surfacing. There's 90,000 seats. How come Sydney gets 9,000 tickets? Go the Swannies! Kevin Wilde, Ten News. Outrage from Wests Tigers fans tonight, thousands of them will miss the club's preliminary final with the Dragons after the NRL refused to move the game to the much larger Telstra Stadium. The Aussie Stadium match will now largely be a sea of red and white.

The phone lines were running hot at Balmain Leagues Club today,

fans ringing in desperation for tickets that don't exist to this Saturday night's sold-out preliminary final against St George Illawarra. There's nothing much we can do about it. the St George supporters have got all the tickets. The Aussie Stadium match declared a 40,000 sell-out early today, leaving many fans without a ticket and angry the match wasn't switched to the 80,000 seat Telstra Stadium.

This is absolute chaos. There's no

way This is absolute chaos. There's no way you This is absolute chaos. There's no way you could This is absolute chaos. There's no This is absolute chaos. There's no way you could get a ticket. With 50,000 tickets already sold for both finals this weekend, the NRL ruled out a late switch of venues when the Tigers-Dragons classic materialised yesterday afternoon, Dragons fans snapping up most of the tickets when their side qualified two weeks ago. The Dragons have really got a big advantage here. They've had two weeks to buy their tickets. It's going to be inundated with red and white people all over the stadium.

Even the Premier, a passionate Dragons' supporter, waded into the controversy.

I'd heap that the NRL and the trust

can get can get together I'd heap that the NRL and the trust can get together and I'd heap that the NRL and the trust can get together and get I'd heap that the NRL and the trust can get together and get this I'd heap that the NRL and the trust can get together and get this game at can get together and get this game at Homebush. In an ideal world, if you could wave a magic wand, you would do it. We want to get as many people as possible to our games, but there are logistical issues that just can't be ignored.

He's now targeting Kim Beazley's daughters. The mud-slinging continues to fascinate the nation with the former leader's tell-all book doing brisk sales on its first day in the stores. It's just a kilometre from Parliament House and it was the first bookstore in the country to begin selling the 'Diaries'. People from Parliament House,

first thing they do is they come in, look at the index, they check to see if they are in there and they still buy it whether they are in there or not. Kim Beazley won't be buying it. From what I've seen of anything of which I have direct knowledge of, it's a work of fiction. Mr Beazley's two adult daughters have had enough, launching a defence of their father on their own blog. They describe Mr Latham's claims as hateful rantings. He says Kim Beazley is exploiting his daughters' naivety. If he wants to roll his daughters out, hang on, I'll just get my 4-year-old on the phone. I mean, what are we getting into here? It's just absurd. My daughters are their own women, and they make their own decisions about what they do, but as a dad I am delighted they defended me. There was support today for Mark Latham's view of how Kim Beazley reacted to circumstances that led to the suicide of Labor MP Greg Wilton in 2000. Mr Wilton's sister also claims Kim Beazley abandoned him. Mr Beazley says that's not true.

Labor sources say the leader's office and Labor officials intervened

when Greg Wilton was detained by police after a witness interrupted what appeared to have been a murder-suicide attempt. Paul Bongiorno, Ten News. A court has heard details about a head-on collision which caused a pregnant woman to lose her baby. Police statements revealing the man accused of causing the crash unable to explain what happened. Susan Harris was eight months pregnant when she was involved in a car crash that caused her to lose her baby.

and other serious injuries because of his reckless driving. He is standing trial on one charge of dangerous driving causing grievous bodily harm. It's claimed Crossley tried to overtake two trucks on this road outside Goulburn but ended up ploughing head-first into the Harris' car. The jury told one of the truck drivers will recall how he heard:

Crossley allegedly tried to pass.

The jury is expected to visit the crash scene during the four day case as well as hear the first-hand accounts from the Harris'. Amber Muir, Ten News. A boost tonight for our anti-terrorism rescue teams. An extra 75 firefighters are being added to the frontline team,

who'll be risking their own lives to rescue victims if the worst happens. They're part of our fire brigade's rescue elite and today Premier Iemma came to see them in a simulated disaster extracting victims from an 8-storey building collapse. The strength of the so-called Urban Search and Rescue Task Force is being boosted by 75 to 260. The fear? A 9/11-style atrocity in our own backyard. This is one of our frontline services in cases of a disaster or a terrorism attack. Based on American and British anti-terrorism models, firefighters from across the country come here to train to locate victims, using seismic listening devices and other high-tech equipment. The task force comprising firefighters, paramedics, engineers and police search dogs working with local rescue units. And they'll be on scene within 15 minutes of a structure collapse followed by the task force within two hours. Task force officers are trained to operate in confined spaces, combating fires and hazardous materials. Morris Iemma agrees with his predecessor in that it's not a case of if we have a terrorist attack but when. Well, we have to be prepared. We live in uncertain times. Frontline rescuers training for what they hope will never happen. Paul Mullins, Ten News. They've been the pride of Hyde Park for decades. This evening they are garden mulch. The first of 34 trees came down today to allow Sydney City Council to improve public safety.

A recent survey showed many roots and lower trunks were decaying, which could force the trees to fall.

Soil around the trees will now be replaced and a new drainage system will be installed.

Unions say spiralling prices have eaten up a recent $17 a week rise for the lowest paid. It's launched a new minimum wage claim, even though the Industrial Commission is set to lose its power to hear the case. They're already struggling, it's a tough game out there.

The Government says there'll be no relief until its new fair pay commission starts work in 18 months. Investigations are under way into why two British divers were left drifting off the Far North Queensland coast. They spent six hours in the water, being circled by sharks. The happy couple has reason to smile - they're probably the luckiest tourists in Australia. We just stayed really close, held hands, made sure we didn't get separated, supported each other, kept each other's spirits up. Oh, I don't know about that! Louise Woodger and her fiance, Gordon Pratley, are on a working holiday. They wanted an Aussie adventure up north but had no idea just how risky it could be. The keen divers took to the water off Townsville on Saturday morning, but strong currents separated them from the party during their first dive. At first you think you're going to be found, and as it gets later and later you think... ..well, you don't really want to think what might happen. They drifted through shark-infested waters for six hours.

You didn't tell me it was circling us till we got out. The sight of rescue crews something the couple will never forget. They were found nearly 10km from where they'd been. It was as good as it gets, but very emotional. As good as winning the Ashes! Police investigations are continuing, but Louise and Gordon say they were satisfied with safety procedures.

Self-confessed cocaine addict supermodel Kate Moss is involved in a new scandal. Actor Jude Law and ex-wife Sadie Frost reportedly slept with the model at the same time. Moss's bedroom activities have sparked a tabloid frenzy in the UK. While she's apologised to sponsors over her drug use, those in the industry say she should be left alone. It doesn't interfere with her work or her looks, it's nobody's business, leave Kate alone. Do you know what? She's leading her life like everybody else. She's not doing anything different to what your next door neighbour does. According to reports, Moss has been spending almost $500 a day on cocaine. New tactics are being tried in the treatment of eczema. The painful skin condition affecting more than six million Australians. Dietary supplements and minimising psychological damage can make a big difference to the lives of sufferers. but not for 3-year-old Ben Swinton. (Cries) My legs hurt! The chronic eczema he was born with obvious on his little arms and legs. It just kept peeling and peeling. It got redder and redder until eventually,

his face just looked like some sort of desert place in Australia that was cracked and dry. It means a daily ritual of bathing and creams and bandages almost every hour. I have to hold him at times just to stop him from trying to rip his skin. A new 3-step eczema control plan is now available at pharmacists to help parents fight eczema at first sign. Fish oil and evening primrose oil

are getting the thumbs-up from some mums who say a few of these tablets can make an enormous difference. A new study has focused

on psychological and developmental problems. The condition causes children to lose about two hours sleep a night It affects their behaviour, it affects their performance at school and that's compounded by their poor self-esteem. New research has shown that looking after a child with eczema than caring for a child with insulin-dependent diabetes with eczema taking two to three hours a day of parents' time. It costs families between $1,000 and $3,000 a year. Eczema affects one in three Australians. 90% of children will have it in some form by age five.

Above average. There he is there.

Look at him. The big smile. A touch

down on your television. See you at five to six. The top stories we're following this news hour - the Manly ferry 'Collaroy' has smashed into a wharf at Circular Quay, causing scenes of chaos.

Two people were treated for minor injuries, some passengers initially feared a terrorist attack. A Sydney man is dead and a young woman fighting for her life after they were poisoned by laughing gas. Another two people were dragged clear of a car, filled with the nitrous oxide. And a Sydney man has been accused of petrol pilfering as prices continue to soar. He allegedly stole at least one 1,000 litres of diesel from a service station. And the price of petrol is starting to bite in the used car market. Dealers are reporting a slump in interest for large cars but smaller, more economical models are in high demand. It's become a real selling point. And you can buy yourself a little goer, a little 1.3, save yourself a couple of thousand dollars in fuel costs. And it's working. Four and five, four and six. The petrol price is on the way up. four and seven, now four and eight. The soaring cost of petrol has lifted the price of more fuel-efficient cars at auction by at least $1,500 just in the last couple of weeks. Typically, an '04 Corolla Conquest, which would normally achieve somewhere in the vicinity of $17,000 that's increased anywhere from $18,000 to $19,000. Red Book is the industry bible on used car prices.

It says the shifts are significant. The effects that we're seeing this time around I think are quite similar to the sorts of effects that we saw back in the '70s when we had the oil crisis back then. Motorists changing their habits, resigned to higher petrol prices. It's OK to buy the car, but then you've got to run it and service it and everything.

That sentiment is forcing down the price of 6- and 8-cylinder models and larger four-wheel drives, making it a tough sell. At this stage, it is near-impossible. Like, the first question is "What's the fuel economy?" Commodores, Falcons and Magnas have fallen in value by as much as 20%. Of course, all of this obviously means that if you are actually in the market for a larger car,

there's probably never been a better time to buy, with real deals to be done on 6- and 8-cylinder models,

With a baby due, the Penottos went against the trend, securing this large station wagon for just $14,000. We heard that the price of smaller cars had gone up $2,000 to $3,000 and it just played into what we wanted to do anyway. Used LPG vehicles are also commanding around $2,000 extra.

Eddie Meyer, Ten News. And the NRMA has launched a website showing motorists where to find Sydney's cheapest petrol. The organisation hopes to stimulate competition among servos, while helping drivers top up for the lowest possible price. The web address is there on your screen: Craig James at Commonwealth securities. Retailers finally get something to celebrate.

Yes, Ron, and it is a double

celebration. First up there's more tourists celebration. First up there's more celebration. First up there's more tourists in Australia spending

their hard earned holiday dollars.

In the month of August a rise of 2%

in tourist arrivals. That's the

third in tourist arrivals. That's the

in tourist arrivals. That's the third consecutive rise. The second

piece of good news is the strong

competition between Coles and

Woolworths for the petrol dollar.

Coles offering up to 8 cent a litre

off at the petrol pump. We've got

more to spend at the shopping mall.

Thank you Craig. Craig James at CommSec. Emmy success for Australia's Hugh Jackman and Geoffrey Rush. The pair beating American stars for awards at TV's big night. They're the big stars of the small screen and today everyone was giving larger-than-life performances. (All sing) # This is what we call the Emmy Show # Australia's Ten Tenors tuned up the red carpet,

where red crosses and white flowers were the accessory of the day in honour of Hurricane Katrina victims. For movie awards veteran Geoffrey Rush, it was the first Emmys. Tonight we'll wait and see. His wait wasn't too long. And the Emmy goes to Geoffrey Rush. The 54-year-old won Best Actor for a television movie 'The Life and Death of Peter Sellers', the same role which earned him a Golden Globe. My darling wife, Jane, she may not know it but she is a winged woman who holds up my world molecular thingy. Never lost for words, comic host Ellen Degeneres who warned nominees not to try to act surprised if they won. Advice Hugh Jackman ignored when he took out Best Performance for his presenting role at the Tony Awards last year. I'm sorry, Ellen, I didn't expect it, I really didn't. He thanked his wife, but as for what he'll do with the trophy...

Right now of course we are on location in Vancouver, so it'll go back there where my boy will look at it for about an hour and paint it or, you know, put it in a pool or something. LAUGHTER While the stars have no shortage of fans,

the Emmys have not been as popular as organisers would like, so this year they're mixing things up. For starters, Donald Trump performed. (Sings) The winners of the night -

'Everybody Loves Raymond', 'Monk' and 'Medium' but 'Desperate Housewives' remain desperate, only winning 1 of its 15 nominations. At the Emmys in Los Angeles, Leisa Goddard-Roles, Ten News. Tim Webster with sport and the NRL drops a referee. Yes, changes after a clanger of a mistake at the weekend, more shortly. Also, the likely defence for Barry Hall in his bid to play in the Grand Final.

And the tactics that could make the Dragons the Tiger tamers. with the lowest prices every day at Bunnings Warehouse. Ryobi electric hedge trimmer - a sharp $69. just $79. only $49.98. Mondo grass - 10 pots for just $10. a cheaper price on a stocked item, are just the beginning.

We have time to keep everything from happening all at once. With TransACT's Home Pack, some things can. You can be on the phone, access high-speed broadband or choose from over 40 digital quality channels and an abundance of entertainment on demand all at the same time. And TransACT is your only local company TransACT - There's no time like everytime. This program is captioned live.

Simpkins awarded a try to the Melbourne's Storm's Stephen Bell without checking with the video ref. Mander will control the sell-out Tigers-Dragons game

on Saturday night.

Steve Clarke has been handed the whistle for the Eels-Cowboys Grand Final qualifier. St George Illawarra believe they have the game plan to end the Wests Tigers premiership campaign and it all revolves around wrestling. The Dragons will see a specialist wrestling coach this week to slow down the Tigers' free wheeling attack. To tranquillise the Tigers the plan is simple for St George Illawarra - slow down the play of the ball through wrestling tactics. We've had a wrestler who's been with us all year, I think he's a world champion wrestler. He's been doing a lot with us last week

and he's doubled up with us this week and we are going to do a fair bit of that. The Dragons say Brisbane were outsmarted by the Tigers' more mobile pack who are providing good go forward and quick ball to their playmakers. Playmakers who are causing reason for alarm. Mate, I'll be lucky to touch him let alone put a big shot on him. A lot of people have tried that and it hasn't worked

but we are not going to stop their players completely.

We are just going to limit what impact they will have in the game. Brisbane haven't won a finals game since 2002

and questions are being asked up north.

They'll talk about Wayne and get the knives out but if you want to get to the bare bones of it , players are the cause of what happened. One of those players, Australian five-eighth Darren Lockyer, is under increasing pressure to retain his spot with Barrett in career-best form. You know, it's something that's in the back of your mind and I haven't played for Australia for a few years. I'd love to get back in the team. Lockyer joining team-mates Civoniceva, Tate and Hodges in the Kangaroos train-on squad as well as Melbourne's Matt King. Some believe the current Kangaroos captain should shift back to his original position. I think he should probably shift back to fullback. I think he's played his best football there but having said that so has Anthony Minichiello. Michael Campbell's hot streak has continued with victory in the World Match Play Championship in England. Defending champion Ernie Els was restricted to walking the dog, nursing a bad knee, while Campbell went head-to-head with Ireland's Paul McGinley.

A winning birdie on 17 clinching the title and the biggest cheque of the New Zealander's career. There's a different kind of tension I think what I felt during the US Open last night's holes um, it's one on one. the man, not the golf course. While the trophy's nice, it comes with over $2 million in prize money. Later in Sports Tonight with Leigh Diffey - our reporter Ian Cohen is at the Brownlow Medal.
