here to stay. NSW is in the grip of mortgage stress. One third of home buyers are currently spending more than one third of their income on repayments. Combined with exploding rents, housing is now becoming an election issue. If Australians have never had it better, the Carvajals fear the bad times. Today they invited Kevin Rudd to pay a visit to their rented home in Australia's least affordable city. Thank you for having me in your home. Joanne Smith, her husband and three children live here and are expecting another child. But they could only afford to do so with the help of Joanne's mum Nancy. 400 was going to buy us a 2-bedroom place kids in a two bedroom place. What they have found is a real struggle in saving for a housing deposit while facing an explosion in rental prices. And statistics show life isn't any easier for those with a home loan. 500,000 are considered to be suffering mortgage stress from losing more than a third of their salary on repayments. Even Sydney's west, the traditional market for first home buyers, is proving out of reach for most and becoming more and more polarised. the aspirational buyers who are moving to the outer suburbs, leaving behind people with low incomes in the older established areas. Urban social planners say the M4 is the dividing range between rich and poor out west. To the north behind me are burgeoning housing estates and million-dollar properties,

while to the south are many older areas, fast reaching the end of their intended life span. Labor chose John Howard's own Sydney electorate to offer a solution, and other incentives discussing tax breaks for developers of cheaper rental properties at a housing forum later this month.

He have lower unemployment, lower

taxation, higher wages and more

better deal from us than they would

get from the other crowd. An embarrassing memory lapse from the Prime Minister has ignited more leadership rumblings in the Government. John Howard forgot the name of a candidate in a key seat prompting concerns he's losing his touch. John Howard was shoring up support in a Tasmanian marginal seat today with funds for a showground upgrade. That went down a treat - not so successful, his spruiking for a candidate in another seat. RADIO ANNOUNCER: The candidate in Franklin?

JOHN HOWARD: Yes. Her name? SILENCE The candidate in Franklin, Prime Minister? Look, I support all of my candidates. What's her name? I've forgotten it. She's Dr Vanessa Goodwin. It was a blooper and I've apologised to her. But it was one of those days. Mr Howard's favourite newspaper in Sydney splashed with the headline was walking away from him. the harbour city It's reminiscent of the pressure Kim Beazley was under when he made this gaffe. Today our thoughts and the thoughts of many, many Australians are with Karl Rove. He meant Rove McManus, but it further undermined his credibility in the already nervous Labor party room. By contrast, Peter Costello's performance today far more assured. I do, as it turns out. Vanessa Goodwin... Good-WIN! for the Liberal Party - And that's the problem persistent horror polls are eroding confidence in Mr Howard. Veteran MP Wilson Tuckey again repeating his view it's never too late to change leader. According to one source, the mood in the room at Tuesday's Cabinet meeting was blind panic at the latest Newspoll. But, while a number of MPs now believe Mr Howard should have stepped down in December, they are getting no support from Peter Costello to force the issue. Paul Bongiorno, Ten News. A Sydney street has been closed off and the army called in after the discovery of a dangerous secret. A vast collection of military explosives uncovered by accident after the owner died. This ordinary house seemed like any other in the suburbia of Revesby, an unusual and dangerous habit. but the man who lived here had Some men ride motorbikes, others collect bombs. He's one of those, he's just one of those collectors.

Dozens of detonators, bits and pieces of old munitions, smoke grenades and a mortar were all stored illegally on the premises. Police stumbled upon the stockpile when asked to visit the home

by the worried family of its 48-year-old owner, who they hadn't heard from in days. First, officers found his body - he'd died of natural causes. Then they noticed 38 cannabis plants growing in a hydroponic set-up. And... We located some military ordinance and after that an improvised explosive devices or IED. The street was blocked off for hours. People are a bit worried, yeah, pretty worried, I mean, they're more concerned. There's a lot of kids around this area and stuff. He kept to himself a lot Never heard anything from him so... Are you surprised? Yeah, very surprised. Every precaution was taken, even the army called in. And a mobile detonation chamber set up on the street. The bomb disposal squad spent the morning securing the home making sure each of those old collector's items was, in fact, safe to be moved. They've been present in their location for a long time. The key time is if they move them. Eventually they did, without incident. Danielle Isdale, Ten News. is refusing to talk about his role Cricketer Craig McDermott in the collapse of investment company Bridgeport Finance, until tomorrow. McDermott's company Maxen Developers owes Bridgeport $18 million.

Creditors yesterday crowded a Sydney meeting to hear what's happened to their money. But in a statement, McDermott said he'd worked with Bridgecorp since 2001, and had borrowed and repaid many millions of dollars. He says his company is a victim of the collapse and he's yet to meet administrators. The growing number of grandparents caring for their grandkids - the call for more support, next. Also tonight - a 14th woman diagnosed with breast cancer at a Brisbane TV station.

And the $2 label that's making car theft much harder.

Federal Police have raided Queensland Health offices, seizing material linked to detained Gold Coast doctor Mohamed Haneef. A spokesperson says they met with police to coordinate access to information and are cooperating fully with the investigation. Haneef's lawyers fear the case is becoming politicised. Defence Minister Brendan Nelson, on a visit to India, defended Australia's anti-terror laws which have allowed the 27-year-old doctor to be held for 11 days without charge. An application to keep him behind bars even longer will be heard tomorrow. And four men have been jailed for life for trying to blow up London's transport system. The attempted attack came two weeks after the July 7 bombings which killed more than 50 people. The plot failed when explosives in their backpacks didn't detonate. The men were convicted of conspiracy to murder and will spend at least 40 years behind bars. Two others are facing a retrial, after the jury failed to reach a verdict. Another ABC worker is in hospital in Brisbane, the 14th to be diagnosed with breast cancer. The mother of four had worked at the same desk as seven other cancer victims. Struck down by invasive breast cancer, mother-of-four Angie Eckersley is in the Mater recovering from surgery. Shocked and distressed by the diagnosis, the director's assistant worked at ABC television for seven years, leaving only two years ago. It was her husband, Ian Eckersley, who was one of the very passionate and public faces of the campaign to investigate the breast cancer cluster. We've wiped their tears away, we've seen their pain, we've cried with them, and enough's enough. Today is just too much. It's just sad that it's taken another tragedy for us to get to this point. Angie Eckersley had worked in the same newsroom

and on the same production desk where now 7 out of 14 breast cancer sufferers worked. ABC management clearly alarmed there's yet another victim. This latest case is quite disturbing to all of us and we just hope it is the last. Angie's husband says she is in good spirits, positive about her prognosis. In a statement, the Eckersleys said: "And we urge all female employees who worked at the ABC Toowong site "not to become complacent "and to remain vigilant about their health checks." We've spoken to ABC Brisbane employees today and the reaction has been one of disbelief and sadness. Despite years of investigation, no cause of the cancer cluster has ever been found, this latest diagnosis leading to new calls for more testing. The site was shut down last December. the breast cancer issue behind us but this is an ugly reminder that it is still there. We have been rocked by this. A stop-work meeting has been called for tomorrow. Lexy Hamilton Smith, Ten News. An alarming snapshot tonight of the plight of Australia's grandparents. Vast numbers of our senior citizens have been left to raise young families by themselves. The bond between a child and their grandparent can be special. But with many parents working, more and more grandparents are helping bring up their grandchildren. I take him to preschool and pick him up three days a week 'cause I live with them. A study has revealed increasing number of nans and pops aren't just being supportive. They, in fact, unexpectedly become the guardians of their grandchildren. Researchers found many grandparents struggled with feeling isolated raising youngsters. If we provide the right support for the grandparents it makes a terrific difference to them, but also to the grandchildren. That's our ultimate goal, to have the best environment for those grandchildren to thrive. Nationwide 23,000 families are headed by grandparents.

1 in 10 of them are caring for three or more children and almost half are doing it alone. Drug and alcohol abuse, mental health and poverty the main reasons for parents being absent. Everybody believes who knows the field Researchers are now broadening their study nationwide to find out exactly how many grandparents are primary carers, the effect that has on children and also their parents. three years. The study's expected to take We're going to have a very strong base, we're sure, "This is the situation and this is how we can collectively deal with it "and respond to what's really a new social trend in Australia." Catherine Kennedy, Ten News. Australian car makers are being urged to spend an extra couple of dollars a vehicle

to make them harder to steal. Imported cars like Audi and Subaru have topped the annual NRMA Insurance survey on car theft. One of their most successful anti-theft features is a self-destructing I-D plate that costs two dollars. And we think that sends a clear message to Australian manufacturers that they are currently off the pace and need to lift their game. Overall car theft is at its lowest level in 30 years. is older cars being stolen for parts.

A study revealing Hormone Replacement Therapy can increase the risk of heart disease. 50% of Australian women undergo hormone replacement therapy, used to treat the symptoms of menopause since the 1950s. But a new study suggests, for some at least, HRT's dangerous. Women starting hormone therapy for the first time over 65 will have an increase in heart disease and thrombosis and we don't advise starting at that age. the benefits of oestrogen. By delaying HRT, women fail to get Arteries can calcify and clog, leading to heart disease. But the good news is... The message to Australian women is that the 99% of women who take hormone therapy under the age of 60

have no fears of heart disease. In fact, there's benefit. By starting HRT early, women also reduce their risk of contracting diabetes, osteoporosis. Sandra McAllister began hormone therapy almost 20 years ago, a busy work life leaving little time for hot flushes and sick spells. I'm out and about, doing things, and I don't have the hot flushes anymore, so I'm fine, it's fine. HRT first came under question in 2002 when a US study showed a combined oestrogen-progesterone pill increased a woman's risk of stroke, breast cancer and blood clot. The message to menopausal women - consult your doctor. Every woman is very different and you must individualise therapy. Gabrielle Boyle, Ten News.

The end of an era in US politics with the death of former first lady, 'Lady Bird' Johnson. Her husband, president Lyndon B. Johnson was sworn in when JFK was assassinated in 1963.

A modern-day challenge to keep children moving - the lure of the small screen making many kids fat. But a new toy can now turn the television into a fitness tool. MACHINE VOICE: Ready, set, go! The Smart Cycle is a stationary bike that plugs into the television. When the pedalling starts, the computer games begin. 3- to 6-year-olds can ride through academic games or they can hit the road in race mode. Child health experts say the machine may not burn as many calories as a real ride but is better than just lounging about. The advantage it has is that child is doing some exercise instead of just being a couch potato. And it's a safe way to improve motor skills. It teaches eye-hand coordination. It teaches pedalling for children that are starting pedalling. Manufacturers are under more pressure than ever to create toys that are entertaining and healthy. It can keep kids active on winter days but parents are warned computer games, such as the Smart Cycle and the Nintendo Wii, are no fitness quick fix. Children do need time outdoors, especially in winter.

Also - Aussie paralympic star Michael Milton prepares for a second fight with cancer. And later - an Australian wartime hero remembered a century on. This program is captioned live. Devastating news tonight for Australia's much loved Paralympic champion Michael Milton.

He's been diagnosed with oesophageal cancer. Michael recently made a successful switch from skiing to cycling but has been forced to withdraw from all competition to fight his second battle with cancer. As a 9-year-old, Michael Milton beat bone cancer but lost his left leg in the process. 25 years later and the fight resumes. he has oesophageal cancer, Milton today announcing in his words, "a particularly nasty type."

In a brief statement today, the 34-year-old said: Milton's cycling coach echoing the thoughts of many. Obviously, he's devastated, as are all of us, he's like, "OK, that's another hurdle. "Here's the barrier and I'll conquer this one "as I've conquered all the rest." After winning 11 Paralympic medals for skiing, Milton shut the door on the Winter Games last year, turning his attention to Summer Games glory. And in little time finding immediate success in cycling. The strength in the old leg from all the training I've been doing for skiing for years and years

and from the bike riding I've been doing the last six months. His team-mates today taking the news hard. will pull together, as well as all the other support Michael has around the world.

He's a huge name. Milton simply says he wants to see the future birthdays of his 10-month-old daughter Matilda. He'll be operated on next week. Rob Canning, Ten News. has blasted NRL officials Brisbane coach Wayne Bennett for not doing more to rid the game of the illegal grapple tackle after Souths players complained they were victims of the choking-type tackles against Melbourne last weekend. Bennett believes referees and the match review panel have not backed up threats to punish the grapple. What you'd like to do with the refs sometimes and the people that sit on the - when guys get hit in the head and guys get grappled, you'd love to get their head and give them a stiff arm and grapple them and see how they'd react, because they just think it's part of the game. It's not part of the game. The Storm predictably claim they do not encourage their players to use the grapple tackle. Socceroos coach Graham Arnold has shrugged off criticism of his team's Asian Cup performance. He's set to make changes for tomorrow night's match against Iraq. Defender Michael Beauchamp is likely to come into the team

at the expense of Patrick Kisnorbo. The commitment that the players showed last Sunday was outstanding, The performance wasn't good, we admit that. you can t hide behind it. The players admit that, I admit it, you can't hide behind it. And Australian referee Mark Shield had his hands full in last nights 1-all draw between South Korea and Saudi Arabia.

Just after awarding his first penalty of the tournament he had to deal with a light failure which delayed the match for 25 minutes.

Joel Parkinson, Danny Wills and Bede Durbidge also carried

the Aussie flag through. Reigning world champ Kelly Slater has had his heat called off due to the tide but was quick to quash retirement rumours. Norway's Thor Hushovd has moved into second place in the overall standings after winning the 193km fifth stage. COMMENTATOR: Thor trying to get through on the right here.
