The first day on the job of the safety of our country trains. A disturbing assessment tonight one XPT averted a possible disaster. The chance discovery of a fault on the other trains Inspectors then checked and were shocked at what they found. The XPT derailment passengers escaped injury and all XPT trains were taken off the tracks for urgent inspection. A subsequent report by the Transport Safety Bureau has revealed alarming deficiencies in State Rail's maintenance.

A single wheel had derailed because the axle had sheered through caused by rocks bouncing up and fracturing the metal. A subsequent report by the Transport Safety Bureau has revealed

alarming deficiencies in State Rail's maintenance. It's certainly frightening, to know there were people travelling on those trains and they were in an unsafe position, condition, then that's scary. Further checks on all XPT engines found 13 axles with hairline cracks. Railcorp's maintenance contractor has been blamed. The report says the axle cracks had been developing over a lengthy period. State Rail's maintenance was criticised for failing to pick up the problem before the XPT's axle sheered. that we take seriously I can assure you our maintenance and inspection regimes for our XPTs and all our Railcorp trains. But the union has a different view. Passenger fleet maintenance has sometimes, you know, left a bit to be desired. Railcorp says the problems with XPT axles has prompted a review of maintenance across its entire fleet. We've now got the ultrasound testing inspections in place to trap this type of defect. With disaster averted by sheer luck, the Transport Safety Bureau has now warned rail operators to implement strict testing procedures on axles and bogeys to make sure their trains are safe. John Hill, Ten News. is slowly being restored A sense of calm to Aboriginal communities across the Top End, ahead of next week's federal intervention. to what happens next, with the Government yet to finalise details of its plan. Labor is beginning to lose patience. I think it's important in each of the sub-elements of Mr Howard's strategy for the Northern Territory that we see the detailed plan. We will be introducing the legislation as soon as it's ready and we hope it will be ready within the next few weeks.

As for Tony Blair - he's already got a new job. The end of a political era - Tony Blair's decade as Prime Minister bundled into boxes. As he left Downing Street for his final address, anti-war protesters bade him farewell. BOOING AND JEERING They packed out the House of Commons, where Mr Blair paid tribute to Britain's armed forces at war and delivered his parting words. If it is on occasions the place of low skulduggery, it is more often the place for the pursuit of noble causes.

Back at Number 10, the Blair family said goodbye, including 7-year-old Leo, who was born there. Wife Cherie had a personal farewell for the media. 'Bye. I don't think we'll miss you. And with that, they were gone. Gordon Brown then met with the Queen to make it official, an old school motto his pledge to the nation.

Four people have been arrested

over the armed hold-up of a south coast hotel. Security vision shows the group breaking into the Towradgi Hotel in Wollongong over the Easter long weekend.

Employees were left tied up as the bandits stole more than $150,000. netting the first of four arrests last week at West Hoxton in the city's south-west. A 29-year-old man was the first to be charged with armed robbery. A woman among those taken into custody. All charges against the celebrity photographer accused of bugging Nicole Kidman's home have been dropped. Jamie Fawcett was accused of placing a listening device outside the star's Darling Point mansion in January 2005. But today the DPP withdrew the charges without explanation. Mr Fawcett says there are no hard feelings between him and Nicole. I'm often asked about the feud between Ms Kidman and myself. There is none, there has never been. Ms Kidman was not the victim in this matter. Mr Fawcett will apply to have his legal bills of $21,000 paid for by the prosecutors. Relief tonight for the weary relatives of many disabled people. The Federal Government has announced a $1.8 billion assistance package, offering care for the carers. $1,000 a year will go to carers of disabled children under 16, but a big focus is on older parents of adult children. My mum died. Respite services to give parents a break both at home and a better chance to get away will be provided. These are the most heartbreaking cases you can find anywhere in the country

and they are the people who will get priority under this new program. Carers Australia says the extra money amounts to $20 a week, but parents relying completely on Centacare will still be $200 a week below the poverty line. We've now got lots of families who are older and are in crisis.

We hope this is the beginning of more funding for them. Mr Howard is hoping the States will also lift their commitment. Hey, it's Ten. Yes, it's Channel Ten. Labor Leader Kevin Rudd released a policy directions paper to preventative medicine, especially in an ageing population. GPs will be given incentives to help patients minimise the risk We want to bring from the margins into the centre of Australian health policy. Labor will establish a task force to advise on the best way to achieve this. Paul Bongiorno, Ten News. The mystery surrounding Brooke Hanson's collapse at a spa and pool show has been solved. After earlier claims that it was static electricity, authorities now blame faults for the electric shocks suffered by the Olympian and her sister Jade Investigators identified an electrical lead not properly earthed as the most likely cause. As a result, 15 volts of electricity went into the water. We've always thought it but now the famous sails that grace Sydney Harbour have been officially recognised as globally significant. The Sydney Opera House was this afternoon added to the World Heritage List. Jorn Utzon's internationally has in the past been labelled a masterpiece of human creative genius, and now joins 830 other world-renowned buildings which are carefully preserved. The ruling ensures views of the Opera House from across Sydney Harbour will be maintained.

Reassuring news tonight Two new studies show the risk of birth defects from the medication is very low. Giving birth to a healthy baby - that's the hope of all expectant mums. They learn what they can and can't eat and drink and taking any drugs, prescribed or over-the-counter can be dangerous. But for women on antidepressants, there's hope. I knew that I wouldn't be well during my pregnancy if I didn't take my medication. If I'm not well, then I can't really be the best mum. Two studies show there's little reason to worry if you're pregnant and taking a type of antidepressants called SSRIs or selective serotinonin reuptake inhibitors. Our results show that there are no major risks associated with SSRI use in early pregnancy. In many cases remaining on medication is an important part of staying well or preventing relapse of depression. One of the two studies just published in the 'New England shows using antidepressants during pregnancy increases the risk of birth defects by less than 1%. Researchers recommend pregnant women weigh up the risks versus the benefits of taking antidepressants with their doctor before making any decisions. The other study reported the actual risk of heart, brain and abdominal abnormalities for babies born to mums using the drugs is less than 3%. There might be a case where perhaps somebody's been very well for some time, or perhaps they've only had one episode of depression, to consider coming off the medication. Catherine Kennedy, Ten News.

A single wheel on the train had derailed near Young, prompting checks on the rest of the fleet. Hairline cracks were found on the axles of 13 XPT engines. A maintenance contractor has been blamed. in Warragamba Dam Tests under way on the water quality after the discovery of unsightly sludge. So far the dam has been cleared of dangerous contaminants, but the parasites cryptosporidium and giardia have been found in a feeder channel. And efforts are under way to refloat the 'Pasha Bulker'. Seawater that's been used to keep her stable is being pumped out - hundreds of people have been flocking to the area to catch a glimpse of the salvage attempt.

but we do not know what that is. Hope tonight the drought may be breaking, rain is on the way. with signs more desperately needed But the Government is warning every drop still counts. From one extreme to the other. Now science has confirmed what farmers dared to dream. in a century may slowly be beginning to break.

Six international weather models predict a period of much-needed rain and plenty of it. We're heading in that direction. we're going to get there and so we are hoping in the next couple of months that will eventuate. The Bureau of Meteorology has reported renewed signs where the devastating El Nino left off, a drenching La Nina will pick up. The warmer water near Australia therefore brings more moisture, so there's more moisture for rain, and you also have the effect of the trade winds - correspondingly increased - so there's wind bringing that moisture on land. Well, I hope they're right. (Laughs) We can all say hallelujah. We hope they're right. The PM has assured farmers drought aid will continue because one wet year won't be enough to reverse the effects of seven dry ones. When the city folk continue to see prices of their farm produce increase, when they are unable to get access because there is more being shipped than available domestically, then they will know the drought

is still severely affecting the farmers across Australia. By August the bureau will be able to say whether or not we're in for a full-blown La Nina event. In the meantime, though, all signs point to a wetter-than-average winter.

But after so long with so little, come hell or high water... We really must not slacken. We must continue to waterproof our country as much as we can. Danielle Isdale, Ten News.
