see you later in the bulletin. One of the State's top cops has been caught up in a Police Integrity Commission inquiry into the disappearance of a Bathurst woman. A local detective was considered a suspect but nearly five years on, no-one has been charged and no body found. Paul Jacob is one of the State's highest profile officers

and his investigation into the disappearance of a Bathurst woman has been called into question. It's not something that's appropriate for us to comment on. The detective inspector is best known for bringing accused killer,

Gordon Wood, back to Sydney to face trial for the murder of his model girlfriend,

Caroline Byrne. In 2001, Jacob led the strike-force into the disappearance of Janine Vaughan from a Bathurst nightclub. The Police Integrity Commission has begun a hearing in Orange

into the possible mishandling of the case. The Commission has received considerable new information which it continues to assess. The key issue is how closely police investigated one of their own local detective Bradley Hosemans, who was later sacked for exposing himself to a barmaid. Good weather for it boys. Witnesses, and Janine's sister, Kylie, told police

she was aware that Hosemans had an interest in her. The disgraced detective admitting for the first time today that he was in Bathurst on the night of the disappearance. He later became involved in the investigation and the Police Integrity Commission wants to know how thoroughly Paul Jacob and his team pursued their fellow officer as a suspect. This Police Integrity Commission investigation won't be the end of the matter. A coronial inquest into Janine Vaughan's disappearance will be held later his year. It's feared Janine was murdered but no body has been found.

Her family just want to the truth to come out.

The worst nightmare anyone could go through.

Kevin Wilde, Ten News. Olivia Newton-John's missing boyfriend may be alive and living in Mexico. Patrick McDermott mysteriously disappeared from a fishing boat in California almost a year ago. Now he's reportedly been spotted living in a busy coastal resort.

Authorities have always suspected Patrick McDermott may have faked his own death. When the 48-year-old went missing When the 48-year-old went missing

from an overnight fishing trip off Los Angeles in July last year, his long-time partner, Olivia Newton John, begged for help to try to find him. I love him very much and, as you can imagine, it's an incredibly hard thing to go through. And, um... Thank you. Now, more than 11 months after his mysterious disappearance from the boat ironically called 'Freedom', there have been three reported sightings of him along Mexico's remote Baja Peninsula. The latest just 10 days ago. Bar owners here in Cabo San Lucas and in a small nearby town have reportedly recognised Mr McDermott from his missing persons photograph. He allegedly told one man he was here working on a private fishing vessel. But that's not the only twist. It's been revealed

the fishing boat made a previously unknown stop for fuel before docking in Los Angeles - a stop that would have given McDermott the perfect opportunity to disappear. At the time of the boat trip he was facing possible jail time for failing to pay thousands of dollars in child support to his former wife.

The last time he was seen on the boat was when he paid his $10 bar and food bill. That was an hour before it docked in Los Angeles.

In Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, Leisa Goddard-Roles, Ten News.

Tim Webster with a look at sport and Tim, the Socceroos very impressive. Yes, a super performance just days out from their opening match of their World Cup campaign. Goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer frustrated one of the world's top football teams, and tens of thousands of Dutch fans, as Australia drew 1-all with the Netherlands in Rotterdam. They came full voice, but were well and truly outnumbered. (All sing) # Ole, ole, ole, Aussie, Aussie. # Just 1,000 or so Aussie fans crammed into a single bay surrounded by a sea of orange. It was billed as a 'friendly' but was anything but that for the Aussies and their fans. This a true test against the third ranked team in the world.

The Socceroos found themselves behind early but spurred on by their small band of noisy fans turned enthusiasm into scoring opportunities. COMMENTATOR: Viduka! But the real hero proved to be goalkeeper, Mark Schwarzer. He pulled off save after save to keep his team in the contest and make his family back home very proud. Very excited about it - his performance.

Even another setback with the loss of Luke Wilkshire couldn't dampen the Aussie spirit. An equaliser coming from the boot of Tim Cahill but only after a few head-stopping moments. Mark Viduka. It's put in! But the hero of the night was Schwarzer who continued to reel off a number of sensational saves forcing his proud father to send this message to coach Guus Hiddink over just who should protect the Australian goal in the World Cup opener against Japan. I hope it settles a few arguments now.

The friendly against the Dutch now

behind them, the serious part of

this World Cup journey is about to

begin for the Socceroos. Shortly,

they'll touch down here in

Stuttgart. They'll be housed in a converted

converted castle just outside of the city. All the match highlights shortly in sport plus some major charges coming out of the NRL judiciary. Among them, the Roosters Lopini Paea. His spear tackle could cost him up to 13 weeks out of the game. Suprisingly, Eels half Jeremy Smith wasn't given an open-ended grading and will miss four games. Also later - changes to the State of Origin line-ups, most of them to the Queensland side. Parents warned after a depraved attack on two young girls

That's next. Plus, Prime Minister Howard targeted by furious protesters in Sydney. And no more fine print - the new food nutrition labels that are much easier to understand.

LAUGHTER PIRATE: Alright! Get in and grab some of these Pirate Pearl M&M's! Why don't you just use the other one, mate? Oh. Sorry.

A community is on high alert after a brazen attack on two young girls who were sexually assaulted at knife-point. The girls, aged 10 and 11, were crossing Elermore Vale Park near Newcastle just after lunch yesterday when a man pulled a knife on them, took them to a secluded corner and attacked them. One of the girls managed to escape and call for help. He was described as being in his 30s, tall, he had dark brown eyes, a large nose, olive-tanned complexion. Anyone with information should contact CrimeStoppers on: Superstar Mel Gibson is used to taking on the movie bad guys. But his lesser-known brother, Danny, is now grabbing headlines over a battle with his neighbours. Living next door to Mel Gibson's brother requires more than a brave heart, according to neighbour Michael Smart. He claims Danny Gibson's falsely accused him over noisy dogs,

fish in his boat and an untidy yard repeatedly dobbing him in to Hornsby Council. We've had enough. If we could afford to move out of here and get the hell away from this we would, but we can't. The father of two got rid of his rooster and an unfenced wading pool without argument but says more complaints kept pouring in. He says he tried to be nice to the Gibsons even once helping them put out a fire

but the battle continues. Mr Smart wonders if it's because of his neighbour's famous name. I don't know whether that's a part of it. I just want it to stop. Mayor Nick Berman says all complaints are treated the same. I can assure both parties council is playing fair. There are no favourites involved. Ten News attempted to reach Danny Gibson but he was uncontactable. We did talk though to the next two closest neighbours

who say they've never had a problem with the Smart family.

No never. I've never had a problem in my life. The council's keeping a 'dog diary' on the Smarts who are no longer on speaking terms with the Gibsons. Danielle Isdale, Ten News. A passenger train on its way from Melbourne to Sydney

has slammed into a car killing the vehicle's driver. It happened at a level crossing near Albury. The 90 passengers on board the Country-Link service escaping injury. Some people who had seen the incident out the side windows of the train were obviously upset by the whole affair. The impact caused the locomotive to become uncoupled from the first carriage. It could be days before they're removed from the track.

A top scientist says Australia would need up to five nuclear power stations for the industry to be viable. But the PM warns it's too early to speculate on where those facilities could be built. A grab bag of protesters jeer the Prime Minister at Sydney University. Nuclear energy didn't seem to be one of their gripes but it's sure to join the list before long.

Adding to the radioactive mix, the nuclear science chief. Nuclear energy operation in Australia probably should have four or five involved. Dr Smith says the power stations would be on the east coast, where the demand for electricity is greatest. John Howard has not been prepared to come out, come clean and say how many power stations Australia would need or where they should be located.

You are putting the cart before the horse. The first thing is to work out whether it is economically feasible or not. Federal Cabinet, tomorrow, will give the green light to an inquiry into the feasibility of nuclear energy. Nuclear power is not economically viable in Australia. Besides, it's too dangerous, she says. The ANSTO chief says it would take 10 years for a nuclear industry to be established in Australia

and the five reactors would cost $10 billion.

"Not in my State," says Morris Iemma. Well, while ever I am Premier of NSW there won't be any nuclear power plants in NSW. But of course he already has Australia's only nuclear reactor, at Lucas Heights, and the local federal member today proudly opened a $10 million security upgrade.

Paul Bongiorno, Ten News.

A new weapon in the battle against expanding waistlines

with food labels that tell us how much we should be eating.

The Federal Health Minister wants all food producers and fast food companies like McDonalds to simplify food labels. Kellogg's products now have one line on the front describing that food as a percentage of how much you should eat in a day.

I hope that this example becomes extremely catchy for the other food manufacturers of our country and I have reason to think that it will be.

Mr Abbott hopes it will help Australians beat obesity. A notorious paedophile booted out of the country. That's next. And the effort to save an East Timor landmark. Locals and foreigners take their buckets into battle.

Australian peacekeeping troops have fired tear gas Australian Federal Police on the front line breaking up a gang fight. Move back now! Move back! Keep going! A local caught in the violence.

His motorcycle vandalised then set on fire. It's the first time the Australian Federal Police have deployed officers to take on the gangs

and it's had an immediate effect. The AFP has another fight on its hands United Nations staff told not to cooperate with federal agents investigating the massacre of a dozen East Timorese police. These killings are murder. We've got to get to the bottom of it. We're responsible for security here in this place at the moment. The UN says it will help the AFP only if a request to do so

first comes from the East Timorese Government. But the troubled nation's political administration has all but broken down. If they're trying to ask us to recognise that we are not able to govern the country, we will never do that because we are able to govern the country. Dili is ablaze with political spot fires, but it's the real infernos which are consuming the attention of the local people. A failed attempt to burn down the popular Castaway Bar

drawing a bucket brigade of thirsty ex-patriots intent on saving their favourite watering hole. Away from the chaos, the Australian Government has reaffirmed its intention

not to let the fledging democracy in Dili slide into failed state status. We cannot afford to have Timor-Leste become one of those and in doing so become perhaps a haven for trans-national crime. In Dili, Murray McCloskey, Ten News.

A notorious paedophile has been booted out of Australia. His file stamped never to return. William John Gallagher left the John Morony Correctional Complex on the floor of this van this morning. Immigration officers escorting the 61-year-old to Sydney Airport where he was deported to London. He'll be forced to immediately sign Britain's Sex Offender's Register after spending most of his adult life in jail for sex offences against young boys.

A major crackdown on terrorism in Canada.

Police have arrested 17 people over a plan to bomb government buildings foiling a plot potentially much worse than America's Oklahoma bombing. Heavily armed police surround a courthouse awaiting the arrival of a group of men charged with planning a devastating terror attack on Canada. 12 men and five youths were arrested and charged with plotting attacks with explosives on Canadian targets.

Their families, arriving at court, shocked on hearing the allegations. I'm shocked. It's crazy, just crazy. It has no meaning whatsoever. These families are all established, longstanding residents, citizens of Canada for the past 50 years. However, Canadian authorities say they launched the undercover sting after monitoring emails and discovering they were trying to buy

three tonnes of the fertiliser ammonium nitrate. It's the same explosive used in the Oklahoma City bombing. The 1995 bombing of the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City that killed 168 people was completed only with only one tonne of ammonium nitrate.

Police claim they found an assortment of bomb-making materials, including mobile phones attached to crude detonators.

They also believe the group has links

to two men arrested in Atlanta recently and a number of men arrested on terrorism charges in the UK. Tim Potter, Ten News. Gunmen have shot dead dozens of people including several school children, at a makeshift roadblock in Iraq. Insurgents stopped two buses divided the passengers into ethnic groups and then executed Shias and Kurds by the side of the road. Among the dead were students, children and old men.

While the violence continues, the political process continues to falter. The prime minister again failed to appoint two key ministers. A decision seen as vital to restoring stability. A major new development in cloning with a pair of test tube mules put through their paces. A record crowd were drawn to watch the field's star attractions. Idaho Gem - the world's first equine clone - and his brother Idaho Star.

The scientific wonders showed clean sets of hoofs winning the 300 metre sprint. The 3-year-old clones, who carry identical DNA, have trained separately from each other for the past two years. Workers who took on the boss all lose their jobs. That story next. Plus, Treasurer Michael Costa prepares to deliver the final Budget

Tonight's major stories - Sydney's drenching does little to ease the city's water crisis

with predictions today we could soon be hit hard in the hip pocket. A CSIRO study has found our water bills could soon jump a staggering 600%. The struggling 'Spirit of Tasmania' ferry service between Sydney and the Apple Isle axed. It's been unable to compete with discount airfares at a time when fuel prices have been soaring. The final voyage will be in late August.

And tunnel warfare - a legal showdown over the Cross City scandal as motorists prepare to pay dearly.

The toll shoots up to $3.50 each way from midnight tonight as the State Government prepares to re-open surface roads in defiance of the tunnel operators. Our State political editor Paul Mullins joins us now. Paul, the tunnel's turned into a real headache for the government 10 months out from the election. This is

This is not just a headache. It's a

migraine. The Government is taking

a very big gamble here. It's gamble

that it won't have to pay out

millions of dollars in

compensation for what is effectively breaking a contract.

It's also gambling that by

reopening these 13 roads it will

effectively kill off the very

troublesome issue of the cross city

Treasurer is preparing to hand down

his first budget tomorrow. Any

there'll be too many vices. This

full rundown from you tomorrow.

The company at the centre of an industrial relations storm is on the verge of collapse. The owners blame union tactics during an unusual unfair dismissal case. Owner Jim Sutton is preparing to walk away from the company where 27 years ago he began work as a tool-maker.

It's the second time in five years

Finlay Engineering has gone into administration, but just two months since the highly publicised sacking of two union member employees, one of them allegedly for smirking. Oh, the union has been a big part. I believe if we hadn't had the absenteeism campaign, if we hadn't lost between six to eight days a week,

which is probably 25% of our turnover, we would have been able to fight through it.

A picket line was established by protesters and the men reinstated. Unionists say the company is a victim of mismanagement and the global economy. There have been problems with Finlay Engineering, there's been problems with management and communication problems. Administrators were formally appointed at a meeting of creditors this afternoon, and now have 28 days to decide the company's fate. It's estimated the 28 employees are owed $1.2 million in entitlements,

the Federal Government likely to be asked to cover any shortfall.

My superannuation went into the company to try and keep it afloat, to buy machinery. I sold my house,

I put that money into the company to keep it afloat, so we're left with nothing. Church welfare bodies have joined the battle over work, supporting Wednesday's union rally. Any legislation which creates the capacity to exploit and abuse,

which these have the potential to do so, then you'd have to say they don't support the Christian value. Cameron Baud, Ten News. Metal and oil prices pushed up the share market today.

An actor known for dishing the dirt on his famous co-stars has turned the spotlight on his own life. Richard E. Grant has turned director

for a film about his unusual childhood in Africa. Richard E. Grant is famous for telling it like it is -

his best-selling book 'With Nails' details what really goes on in Hollywood from the inside. So it's no surprise that when the actor decided to write and direct the story of his own life, it would be a warts-and-all affair. It's based on his own diaries which he started writing as a child in Swaziland. Ever since I saw my mother bonking my father's best friend on the front seat of the car when I was supposed to be asleep on the back seat, which is the opening scene of 'Wah-Wah'.

The title 'Wah-Wah' comes from the way people in the then British colony spoke. Oh, come on, girls, relax. I'm an American. How very hubbly-jubbly for you. Why do they all speak in this snooty baby talk all the time? Blah, blah this, hubbly-jubbly, hoity-toity, tootle-loo, ding-dong. Sounds like a load of old wah-wah. The movie is at times hilarious, at others, harrowing,

including a scene based on real events, where his alcoholic father, played by Gabriel Byrne, shoots at him. Shoot! What are you waiting for? It's the first movie ever shot in Swaziland, but even that was a challenge. I had to beg the king to allow us to film because the French producer, who I no longer speak to, had neglected to deal with some little things called work permits. Richard's next project is set to be another expose called 'Zeitgeist'.

It will be a movie version of 'With Nails'. What really goes on with actors as opposed to the PR version of, you know, we all have a happy family and everything is fabulous. 'Wah-Wah' opens on 22 June.

Angela Bishop, Ten News. Aussie actor Isla Fisher is continuing to turn heads in Hollywood. She's just won the MTV Breakthrough Performance Award for her role in 'Wedding Crashers'.

The comedy about two bachelors dominated the night, winning Best Movie. For most people,

playing a bipolar nymphomaniac would have been a challenge. LAUGHTER But I've gotta say, for me, I think I just played myself. And Heath Ledger emerged victorious in the Best On-screen Kiss category delivered to his co-star in the gay cowboy movie 'Brokeback Mountain'.

is in doubt for Origin II in Brisbane. The Socceroos arrive in Germany tonight with their World Cup hopes boosted by a draw with the Netherlands. A 1-all scoreline with the much vaunted Cup heavyweights reinforcing the belief Australia can be a darkhorse in the opening Cup rounds. 'ADVANCE AUSTRALIA FAIR' PLAYS

In their biggest test since the Uruguay series, not surprisingly Mark Schwarzer was called into action early. But he couldn't keep out Ruud van Nistelrooy moments later. COMMENTATOR: Follow-up by Ruud van Nistelrooy and there's the first goal for the Dutch on the 9-minute mark. It could easily have been two when Grella handled the ball in the area. Schwarzer keeping the Socceroos in the match with a pair of saves within a minute.

A good stop by Mark Schwarzer. Comes out to Wesley Sneijder. Sneijder - shot! Great save, Schwarzer.

Marco Bresciano provided Australia's first shot on goal but it was Mark Viduka who went closest to drawing the match level. Scott Chipperfield... Viduka! That's an absolute top-quality save. Schwarzer's heroics continued after the break. A rare move forward earning the Australians a penalty

when Mark Viduka was dragged down. The skipper, though, reviving memories of his miss in the shoot-out against Uruguay. But Tim Cahill came to the rescue. Tim Cahill! All I could see was the ball roll towards me. I went in a bit later and basically saw the bottom corner and smashed it in. It was a great feeling. Celebrations were short-lived. Luke Wilkshire's second bookable offence drawing a red card.

Arsenal's Robin van Persie was causing loads of trouble, denied again by Schwarzer. And then the woodwork. Guus Hiddink's men holding on for a remarkable draw. The Socceroos will fly to Germany tomorrow, buoyed by the confidence of this result, holding out the Dutch for more than 30 minutes with just 10 men. Mark Schwarzer's heroic performance in goal sure to give him the starting spot against Japan.

I'm confident in my own ability and I know if I can go out there and play at my normal ability, my normal game, that the rest will be decided for itself. Neil Cordy in Rotterdam for Ten News. A major setback for the Queensland tonight with reports boom rookie Greg Inglis will miss game two of Origin

with a back injury.

Meanwhile, a near record eight players have been charged by the NRL judicia y among them the Eels Jeremy Smith for pushing a ref.

Sydney Roosters forward Lopini Paea could miss 13 matches, the longest suspension of the season, for a dangerous throw on the Storm's Ben Cross. Experts claim at least one Rooster should have been sent off

for this horror tackle last Saturday night - the match review committee obviously agreeing. Lopini Paea facing a 10-game match ban even with an early plea. Team-mate Ashley Harrison could go for two games.

Thankfully, Ben Cross suffering no ill-effects. Warriors veteran Ruben Wiki looking at an 8-week suspension for a grade five kneeing charge. Parramatta half Jeremy Smith given a grade five contrary conduct for allegedly pushing referee Sean Hampstead. The Eels could be without him for six games.

There's so many times you'd like to

throttle the referee and

throttle the referee and you can't

do it. He's slipped up a bit. In his first game back from a 7-match suspension, Billy Slater could miss another two for this tackle.

And Matt Cooper is facing a 3-match ban for a dangerous throw. Cooper overlooked for the NSW team announced today. The only change being Dragons team-mate Luke Bailey coming into the squad for the injured Luke O'Donnell. Game one hero Brett Finch given a week to prepare - not 24 hours.

I'm going to try and stick to the same philosophy and not try and get caught up in it all.

The Queenslanders including Test fullback Karmichael Hunt in their revamped line-up. He replaces Matt Bowen - one of three axings. Other new faces Chris Flannery and Broncos hitman Tonie Carroll. The Maroons seeking more mongrel. We probably just needed a forward pack with hitting power. Tonie Carroll is obviously a known hitter.

Selectors keeping Darren Lockyer at five-eighth to the delight of the Blues. I think any side playing against Brisbane or Queensland, would tend to run at Lockyer. I'm sure we can do that in game two. With debate raging about referees' reluctance to blow penalties, Blues coach Graham Murray

wanting a meeting with referees boss Robert Finch. I'm a bit like yourselves at reading and hearing.

I thought we were there to police the rules. Adam Hawse, Ten News.

The Swans are praising their senior players for inspiring yesterday's comeback against the Kangaroos. The come-from-behind win stretching the Swans winning streak to six games. The Swans are still jumping after their 7-point win over the Kangaroos but the big leaps took place in the final quarter in Canberra.

After trailing by as much as 32 points the premiers looked to their leaders. COMMENTATOR: He's a star. Oooh commeth the hour, commeth the man. It's just good to see the group respond in a way we did. I thought our leadership was fantastic yesterday. Leo Barry, Barry Hall kicking those goals. They led the way for us and everything else followed. Six goals from Hall and a match sealer from Adam Schneider

turning around an otherwise scrappy afternoon. The way everyone jumped on board on the last quarter shows the power of the group and we can win games when we're not playing well. The Swans's next assignment St Kilda at the SCG on Saturday night. The team they defeated en-route to last year's grand final. They're a dangerous team for us. They're in and under like we are.

A similar style of play like us it will be a great game at the SCG. Scott Mackinnon, Ten News.

In the men's, world number one Roger Federer booked himself a quarterfinal appearance against Croatian Mario Ancic, while Australia's Lleyton Hewitt plays tonight against clay court king Rafael Nadal. A dramatic day for the women, with fourth seed Maria Sharapova beaten in straights sets

by fellow Russian Dinara Safina. COMMENTATOR: Well, what a point to seal it. And French hope Mauresmo was also a straights-sets loser to Czech teenager Nicole Vaidisova. Mauresmo has never gone past the quarterfinals at her home grand slam. Australian MotoGP rider Casey Stoner has walked away from a spectacular crash at the Italian Grand Prix while reigning world champ Valentino Rossi celebrated his homecoming with a drought-breaking victory. Sitting in third place on the ninth lap,

Stoner lead a group of riders behind Rossi and Spaniard, Sete Gibernau before this tumbling exit. COMMENTATOR: Big one! Casey Stoner is gone! That is huge, but he's landed OK. After failing to finish in the last two Grand Prix, Rossi thrilled the locals with his fifth consecutive win at Mugello, countryman Loris Capirossi second while American Nicky Hayden took third. And in Sports Tonight - we'll be there as the Blues meet with past Origin greats.

For a thirsty town like Sydney,
