Nick Coe, National Nine News. Melbourne Cup-winning jockey Chris Munce has been arrested in Hong Kong as he was about to fly home to Sydney. It's not known why he was detained it's not known why he was detained, but the Hong Kong Jockey Club may give details later tonight. Spain has suffered one of its worst ever rail accidents, with 41 people killed in the crash of a subway train

in the city of Valencia. Police tried to control the panic above ground, as rescuers struggled to reach those trapped below. The crash happened when the subway was full of people heading home for their lunch break. It's believed the train was going around a corner when a wheel broke off. One carriage then overturned and took a second with it. A medical emergency base was set up as more than 150 people were evacuated from the subway. Following the Madrid train bombings two years ago that killed nearly 200 people, Spanish authorities quickly ruled out a terrorist attack.

Instead, the crash is being blamed on speed. Relatives of passengers later gathered at a nearby courthouse to find out if their loved ones had survived. This woman said she tried to call her cousin, who was on board, but there was no reply. It's the second accident on the same subway line in less than a year. In September, 29 people were injured when three trains collided. This latest crash happened days before Pope Benedict was due to visit Valencia. Jodie Noyce, National Nine News. We'll find out within the next 24 hours if the Ten Network is to face disciplinary action over the 'Big Brother' sexual harassment scandal. The media watchdog has completed its investigation with Communications Minister Helen Coonan to announce tomorrow whether any regulations were broken when the incident was shown offline. The two men involved have apologised. A lot of regret and remorse for what has happened. We never wanted to hurt Camilla in any way. We're just, we're so sorry. Contestant Camilla Halliwell says she accepts the apology. Kylie Minogue has spoken publicly for the first time about her cancer treatment. During an exclusive interview, she's revealed she lapsed into shock when she learned she had a deadly tumor in her breast. The moment my doctor told me, I went silent.

Um, my mum and dad were with me.

Then we all fell to pieces. She also admits going into immediate denial. And I was saying, "No, but I'm getting a plane." "No, you're not getting a plane. You're... Sit down." Now clear of the disease, Kylie is undergoing follow-up treatment to ensure it doesn't return. Channel Nine will screen the full interview on Monday week.

(Children giggle) Vandals have caused $500,000 damage to one of Australia's most historic cemeteries. Scores of headstones and monuments were knocked over in the attack at Ballarat's Old Cemetery, which contains the graves of many of those who took part in the rebellion at the Eureka Stockade. Some were so badly damaged, they won't be able to be repaired. The Childers backpackers inquest has been told Israel has rejected a Palestinian ultimatum on a soldier who's being held hostage, and has continued attacks on enemy targets. Palestinian militants were demanding the release of 1,500 prisoners, and implied they would kill the soldier if Israel refused. The Israelis have warned that, if the soldier is harmed, the Gaza military operation will become, in their words, far, far worse. There'll be a fresh attempt to launch the space shuttle 'Discovery' just before 5:00 tomorrow morning.

Somehow, the brain has grown new connections and the man who was once a so-called vegetable is daring to dream of a day when he might walk again. For his family who watched Terry Wallis lying there, unresponsive for so long. each word now, each move, is a miracle.

And he's still improving. His mother still remembers his first word in 20 years. He just said, 'Mum.' His eyes opened wide, you know, and then he said it again, and that was just marvellous. It was such a remarkable recovery, scientists joined doctors in studying his brain and they discovered it was healing itself. He was able to grunt but only inconsistently. Now he can talk to you, he can joke. He can tell you how to fix a Chevy engine. These brain images show how the injury from the car accident ruined the normal nerve connections. They show up as red. But in a less damaged part of his brain, new connections grew, and his system of movement and speech returned. I know you will.

This may be reconnection among intact healthy nerve cells that form new networks. Wallis's extraordinary recovering will encourage doctors to test patients with severe brain damage more thoroughly, to peer into their brains too, looking for signs of recovery. In Los Angeles, Robert Penfold, National Nine News.

In other medical news, groundbreaking technology is now being used by Australian researchers to find ways of improving the lives of premature babies. It's hoped it will prevent long-term complications which can cause brain damage. She's a fighter, big fighter. Hayley is a survivor in her own right - born at 23 weeks, her fragile weight? could be compared to a tub of butter. We were pretty scared, we'd been told everything that could go wrong. About half of babies born before 27 weeks are at risk of a range of problems including cerebral palsy and blindness. This machine, the near-infrared spectroscopy,

measures the amount of oxygen in the brain and is used to test the theory that supplies are affected by low blood pressure. For the first time, researchers can access data around the clock with less disruption to the baby. We can work out different strategies to elevate the blood pressure or keep the blood pressure less fluctuating. Scientists say in the future the technology could be used during routine care as an intervention tool to minimise the risks and improve quality of life for newborns. Any way we can help for the future of more prem babies is great. Because you think about all the ones that would have had to be researched Gabriella Rossitto, National Nine News. Ken Sutcliffe joins us once again from Wimbledon,

and, Ken, things are starting to get? very exciting for Lleyton Hewitt.

Mark, he's found himself in the finals again after eliminating Spaniard David Ferrer. We'll have that, and the Blues get their first look at the Telstra Dome ahead of the Origin decider.

The Bulldogs' Matt Utai will miss five games after taking the early guilty plea for his high tackle against the Tigers on Sunday. Meanwhile, on the State of Origin front Willie Tonga has been placed on stand-by for Queensland centre Josh Hannay for tomorrow night's decider.

The first and final chance for the Blues to have a run at Telstra Dome. The AFL posts are gone, rugby league's big night in Melbourne now a little more than 24 hours away and everything is on the line. It's going to be a pretty physical game, an 80-minute series decider, so it's going to be a big game. Beaconsfield miner Brant Webb dropped by for a look

but NSW can't count on his support. I reckon Queensland will flog them. Game 2 on again.

Mark Gasnier's selection at five-eighth remains a big talking point. Depending on who you listen to, it's a masterstroke or a massive gamble. The man himself admits the answer will only be known after 80 minutes under the Origin blowtorch. There's a lot of ifs and buts about going into the game.

It's moreso prepare the best you can and then when it comes on the night just try and take the opportunities that are in front of you. But those who will stand inside and outside of him tomorrow night the ace in the Blues deck. believe he could be th ace e Bl es deck. He's such a gifted player, and I think I'm just going to have to be in the right spot at the right time to make the most of the opportunities that he creates. A late drama for Queensland,

There is a real buzz here in Melbourne about State of Origin. The city that boasts it's Australia's sporting capital. has embraced rugby league's marquee event. Chris Hodgkinson, National Nine News.

Lleyton Hewiit has made the finals here at Wimbledon for the fourth time in five years and he seems to be improving with every match. Overnight, he beat Spain's David Ferrer to make the men's quarterfinals, where he'll meet Australian Open runner-up Marcos Baghdatis. With London melting in a midsummer heatwave, Lleyton Hewitt was in no mood to muck around. Attacking the net, the first set went fast - 6-4 to the Australian. COMMENTATOR: That's the way to do it. Ferrer threatened to get on top in the second. Oh, good, good shot! But Hewitt had his eye in, whipping winners down the line and, with his judgment just right, at 2 sets to 0 he was cruising. Then Lleyton lapsed, and the Spaniard grabbed the break. With it, the third set was his. Wow! He gave that one some stick! The Australian withstood the barrage and booked himself a place in the quarterfinals. He'll now meet Marcos Baghdatis, who won as Andy Murray wilted. The teenager the last of the British to leave - local hopes crushed yet again. UMPIRE: Game, set, match, Baghdatis. If Rafael Nadal and Hewitt keep going, they'll meet in the semifinals -

Australian cyclist Robbie McEwen has won the second stage of the Tour de France, out-sprinting the pack in a mad dash to the finish line.

It was a long day in the saddle as the field crossed the border into Luxembourg. Today's 220km-plus stage covered long stretches of French farmlands where spectators put haystacks to good use. And it was all building to a nail-biting finish.

With 200m to the line, the legs of Belgian Tom Boonen began to lock up. He couldn't push on and, in the shadows of the finish, McEwen pipped him.

COMMENTATOR: Robbie McEwen takes it on the line, and that man is unbelievable. wal aby squad a ter a 4-y ar absence. Winger Ben Tune is back in the wallaby squad after a 4-year absence. Selectors have stuck with the same starting line-up that beat Ireland, with Tune named on the bench for Saturday's Test against the All Blacks in Christchurch. That flame always burns, I guess. You never lose hope of the fact you might play Test match rugby again.

In finance, the Prime Minister says the Government is committed to the full sale of Telstra but won't offload the shares at any price. The comments pushed Telstra higher - up 6 cents. Rubber glove-maker Ansell fell after another profit warning.

Now with the latest on the big wet, here's Jaynie. Thanks, Mark, and good evening, everyone. Looks like the bulk of the rain has cleared up. We saw a few showers over Katoomba way and light falls in the west. The biggest falls were closer to the coast, with Bondi and Cronulla scoring just over 40mm. A cold day, with the city on 14. Warragamba Dam only a few millimetres but southern catchments picked up 20mm. And Rose Bay had the highest - 84mm, which is your wettest July day in 27 years. Right now we have low cloud. Isolated showers and fog with fresh southerly winds easing. Tomorrow a front will move across southern States.

A few snow flurries for the Victorian and NSW Alps. Fine in the west. Canberra - fog and frost clearing to a fine day.

If you are heading to Melbourne for tomorrow's game, you can expect a few late showers with fresh north-west winds. Rug up, with a top of 15. Showers for Hobart and Adelaide. All clear for Perth, Darwin and Brisbane. Those showers should have dissapeared. Increasing blue sky, which will thankfully heat us up a little. Winds fairly light. There is fog over the mountains right now, spreading to most suburbs tomorrow including the airport. It's been a cold winter, Mark. Actress Keira Knightley has proven a traffic-stopper

Welcome to A Current Affair. I'm Tracy Grimshaw. A former security officer for P&O has given a disturbing insight into life aboard the cruise chip where Brisbane mum Dianne Brimble died. He says drug taking, drink spiking and sexual assault were prevalent,

but claims staff were ordered to turn a blind eye to such behaviour because people were "on holiday." There's drunk people everywhere. People having sex on the open decks, naked romps through corridors. Jeff Dobjeckie was a senior security officer aboard 'Pacific Sky'.

He's maintained his silence, until now.

It's about time people knew what goes on board that ship. Wheeling and dealing in drugs. And that's all in a night on board 'Pacific Sky'? Yes, yeah. Since the coronial inquest into the death of Dianne Brimble, A Current Affair has brought you exclusive interviews with witnesses. It's a bit just like a sex tour to Asia. They're disgusting, absolutely and utterly disgusting, revolting.

There was a heavy banging door and screaming and yelling. We confronted the eight men of interest face to face. Did you take the sickening photos of what was done to her? It was your camera?

You don't have to get violent with me. Jeff Dobjeckie worked on the inside. It's a big grog fest, a sex fest. And tonight he wants Australia to know the truth.

What sort of drugs are on board? Ecstasy, marijuana, maybe a bit of speed and cocaine. What happened when you reported those drugs? We were told that it's their home and that we can't go in there.

You can't stop the passengers from taking illegal drugs? That's what we were told. Dianne Brimble was killed from a overdose
