An inquiry into Canberra's 2003 bushfires, which claimed four lives and 500 homes, is scathing in its findings,

the firestorm said to have been triggered by incompetence at the highest level. Saturday afternoon, January 18, 2003. Strong winds and high temperatures drove a distant bushfire towards and then into the bush capital. Daylight turned to night at 3:00 in the afternoon.

Whole streets gutted. Now, after a 3-year inquiry the ACT Government tried to stop, Coroner Maria Doogan has found that the severity of the firestorm could have been foreseen, and that residents should have been given more warning. She points the finger at Canberra's Emergency Services Bureau and its then boss, Mike Castle. I am deeply saddened by the losses of life

and the injuries and the loss of property but people did their best in the circumstances. But the Coroner's strongest attack is on Chief Minister Jon Stanhope,

whom she accuses of misinterpreting or downplaying the seriousness of the crisis. I regret to say this, but the Coroner is simply wrong. The day after the fire, Mr Stanhope volunteered to accept the blame. If you want to blame somebody, blame me. The Opposition taking him up on the offer. He himself said, "Blame me," and I think he needs to consider his future as a result of this report. I have done my best. We were found wanting on the day. A most extreme and extraordinary event overran us. I have absolutely no intention of resigning. The Coroner also criticised NSW bushfire authorities for failing to contain the fire when it started, 10 days earlier. Most of the homes that were destroyed on that terrible Saturday afternoon have since been rebuilt. But nobody who was here on that day could ever forget the speed and the ferocity of the fire that came down these hills and into those houses. Greg Turnbull, Ten News. And just hours after the Coroner was handing down her findings, fire crews and helicopters were called in to battle a bushfire which broke out in the heart of the nation's capital.

The blaze threatened a hilltop restaurant but was stopped before it could reach nearby homes. A man is helping police with their inquiries after a young girl was run over and killed by a 4-wheel drive on a pedestrian crossing on the NSW Central Coast. The 10-year-old girl was crossing a set of lights in a school zone with her younger sister when she was hit. The girl's parents on the scene within minutes. It's very sad for the family involved and for everyone who witnessed it and the police and ambulances involved. She suffered fatal head injuries. Fallen cycling star Jobie Dajka is vowing to make a comeback after narrowly avoiding going to jail. The 25-year-old admitted to numerous driving offences and assaulting his coach. Today, he received a 3-month suspended jail term,

was slapped with almost $3,000 in fines and had his licence disqualified for a year. As long as I stay straight, put my head down, bum up, I'll be back there. It's going to take me a few months to get there, but I'll be there, for sure. Dajka hopes to make the 2008 Olympic team.

A terrorist suspect has been refused bail

after telling of a bizarre plan to blow up a car in a shopping centre carpark. John Amundsen said 53 kilos of explosives found in his home was supposed to be 5.3 kilos, but they mixed up the order. He says he planned to blow up a car as part of a movie scene he claimed he was filming, the explosion also to be a media spectacle to impress his girlfriend's disapproving parents.

Mother Nature is being put out of business with new figures showing an alarming jump in the number of Australian women having caesareans, doctors concerned mothers are putting convenience ahead of their baby. 34-year-old Natalie Doumit is bucking the trend, as she plans for her third natural birth. It's just a really natural way of having a child and it's very exciting. But new figures show nearly one in three Australian babies are now caesarean deliveries, a sharp jump in recent years prompting concern. I intuitively can't accept that one in three women really need to have a caesarean delivery. Experts say it's increasingly seen as a safer option, especially with older mums. But there can be risks, especially if you're planning more than one. If you have multiple caesareans, you are much more likely to have bleeding problems leading to really significant and sometimes life-threatening problems. Recent research also found it can double the risk of a stillbirth. Private patients are the most likely to have a caesar,

often scheduled in. There's no doubt, if you're a busy practitioner you'd rather have an organised schedule of deliveries

than have to just turn up when it happens. And it seems women now aren't opting for a natural birth in any way. About three-quarters of all women aged 20-34 now use some form of pain relief,

many booking in epidurals well in advance. I don't think anyone's wussing out. I mean, we should all walk to work, but we hop in a car and drive.

Australia has named an unchanged 12-man squad for Melbourne's Boxing Day Test, and with the Ashes back in their possession,

it's time for the blame game, England coach Duncan Fletcher under attack today

while the Aussies take it easy. Australia's cricketers emerged from the team hotel this morning

a little less animated than the night before. Their Ashes-winning party best described as... Fairly savage. ..a word that could also sum up the recriminations faced by the losing side. England down 3-nil in the series, their coach in the firing line as they arrived in Melbourne. REPORTER: Do you accept that if blame is to be apportioned that any of it is your fault? There is blame is on all of us. There is blame is on all of us. Everyone's got to be blamed.

Fletcher defending the captaincy of Andrew Flintoff. He's done a good job. And England's controversial team selections, like the omission of Monty Panesar until the third Test. The people who are criticising now are like a lot of people who run with the fox and hunt with the hounds.

This is the second series we've lost in 11. You often hear out here if it ain't broke, don't fix it, don't you? But further damage could well be on the way.

The Australian players touching down in their home ports this evening,

the captain with clear intentions. I'd be disappointed if we lost a Test match from here. Playing the way we have and seeing the strength of the opposition, I'd be disappointed if we lost a game. Everyone's really excited and okay we've won the Ashes, but we don't consider the job done yet. Shane Warne with his own job to finish. His 699th Test wicket coming yesterday, a world first in his sights in the Boxing Day Test. To play in front of 100,000 people, for me personally,

the opportunity, whoever writes my scripts,

to come here and get 700 in my home town and hopefully I can get one wicket for the game. The Aussies re-group in Melbourne on Friday following a few hard-earned days off. I think all of us wanted to make sure that Australia knew how much it meant to us and how proud we were to be wearing the Baggy Green and winning back the Ashes. We've taken things head on and worked hard and played well, so it's been really satisfying for all of us.

Andrew Brown for Sports Tonight. Meanwhile, Shane Watson says he's now set his sights on next year's World Cup in the West Indies. The injury-plagued all-rounder injured his hamstring playing for Queensland.

He says the pain of missing yesterday's historic victory

was dulled by a phone call from good mate Andrew Symonds. Symmo gave me a call last night, which was really nice of him, to say he's thinking of me and that all the boys were having a couple of beers for me.

Watson will travel to Melbourne tomorrow to be assessed by the Australian team doctor and physio. WA is in a strong position after day one of their Pura Cup clash against Tasmania at Bellerive Oval. Ben Edmondsom ripped through the Tigers' middle order,

The room for Clokes at Collingwood has been cut from three but Travis admits while his brothers are never far from mind,

his team-mates have helped soften the blow.

A lot of the boys are a lot different now towards it and they're both understanding that both the boys aren't there

and it's a big part of my life out of my football. While the Magpies were at Melbourne's Children's hospital to spread some cheer... (All sing) # Hey!

Yeah, it's pretty impressive, I think it sorta shows that we're heading in a new direction and hopefully we can win some games with it. Carlton has given its new draftees a taste of things to come - with a close-up look at the MCG. Most had never set foot on the ground's hallowed turf before today and all hope to be there come Round 1 against Richmond. Me and the boys are imagining 80,000 people, packed grand final sort of thing. I mean, I'm a bit far from that now but it'll be good to imagine.

I've been at Subi when that's packed, and that'd only be half as many as here, so I can imagine this place to be full,

it'd be amazing. And former Brisbane skipper, Michael Voss, has switched his footy boots for a microphone - joining Network Ten's commentary team from next season. While coaching remains a future goal, Voss will join the team on match days to keep his hand in the game. Oh, look, it's just very exciting.

I'm coming off something I've done for 15 years and I'm coming into a new field.

You're out of your comfort zone a little bit so you're not quite sure what to expect or how well you're going to go. So from my point of view, I'm just looking forward to the experience and seeing whether I can pull it off. David Adamson for Sports Tonight. In the NRL Melbourne is under increasing pressure to end the ugly Steve Turner dispute. Souths' CEO Shane Richardson accused the Storm of keeping the saga festering. Most CEOs feel the same way. When you make an agreement with players you expect them to be honoured.

They expect us to honour them and I think it's the same the other way around. The Gold Coast are exercising their right under their agreement and the NRL support it. Richardson also revealed Souths' plan to open talks with off-contract Wallaby Lote Tuqiri, early in the new year.

Alicia Molik has secured a berth for next month's Australian Open. The former world number eight overcame rising star Jessica Moore in straight sets in the final of the wildcard playoffs at Melbourne Park.

This doesn't quite compare to holding the Australian Open trophy.

But for Alicia Molik it's the first big step. It's nice to be given a wildcard, but, you know, earning your spot - I'm going to rock up to the first round knowing I've earned my spot and I deserve to be there, I should be there, and it's quite a different feeling.
