It certainly seems that way, but

there are no guarantees, although

the Premier said that progress was

made and agreement struck at talks

last night. These are the main points. All maintenance operations

to be double checked by outside experts.

And the Premier has made it clear

he hasn't ruled out the possibility

of privatising all rail

maintenance if things don't work

out. At the same time, the

Transport Minister, jaut Watkins

has widened the debate, calling on

the Federal Government to grant tax

breaks for people using breaks for people using public

transport. Here's what the key

players had to say. And I believe that in that respect, we've made real progress. Well, it's funny how on Sunday, we had a war and now we have a truce. But at the end of the day, it's commuters who are losing out. If we can bring about an encouragement for people to back the public transport through the tax system, so be it, it's in place in the States and Canada and in Europe.

Paul, there's plenty of talk from

the State Government. But, what we

really need is a deadline for

improving the rail system. Any

sign of that? The system is in a

lot of trouble? Not really, and it

has to be remembered, we had

Point railway station! Thank you. A 15-year-old boy is behind bars tonight after a wild police chase through 19 suburbs in Sydney's west. With three young passengers on board, the 90-minute pursuit ended with a crash. The stolen Toyota Camry being chased by several police cars through the western suburbs. It was allegedly being driven by a 15-year-old youth who police claim stole the car from Mount Druitt railway station. Inside, three passengers - one of them 15, the others 14. Pursuing police were led across 19 suburbs before the driver lost control and slammed into another car at Mount Annan, the 27-year-old female driver of that car trapped by the legs. Rescuers cutting her free to discover she was suffering only minor injuries. Police arresting the four young males. It was alleged in court they ran red lights, cut corners and crossed the centre line during the 90-minute-long joy-ride, hitting speeds of 150km/h. The driver charged with car theft, and dangerous and negligent driving.

Police told the court

the inexperience of the driver and the speeds he was allegedly travelling at could have led to a much more serious accident. When arrested, they said, he showed no remorse. None of the boys' parents attended the Children's Court hearing. The magistrate refusing bail, telling the driver he needed to have somebody responsible making sure he stayed out of trouble. John Hill, Ten News. Terror suspect Dr Mohamed Haneef has but it's his lawyer who could be in trouble. Barrister Steven Kiem has admitted he leaked Haneef's record of interview with Federal Police to the media, enraging the Prime Minister.

Moving house after more than a fortnight in a watch-house cell. Dr Mohamed Haneef huddled barefoot and alone in the back of the van as a high-security police convoy escorted him to his new prison. Police cleared highways, stopping traffic to secure their priority cargo. Then more police and the dog squad to welcome Haneef to his high-security home. A protection facility - threatened inmates, housing paedophiles, and now a terror suspect. They've assessed that that's the most appropriate facility that they've got. Haneef will be held as a terror detainee, in total isolation and under constant watch. He'll have one hour supervised exercise a day, a special diet and phone calls. He will have access to television, and to literature and to the radio. As he settled in, lawyers lodged his Federal Court appeal to review the cancellation of Haneef's visa. A decision could take weeks, but for now the Federal Government has turned its focus to hunting down who leaked Dr Haneef's first record of interview to the media.

Late today, Haneef's barrister confessed it was him. I've done this because the public is entitled to have this information so that they can judge the evidence on which the actions of the Government against my client have been taken over the last two weeks. Mr Keim claims there's nothing wrong with what he's done. I think it's regrettable

In the leaked document Haneef responds to the UK attacks, saying "Every drop of blood is human blood "and I feel for every human being." Emma Dallimore, Ten News. A look ahead to sport with Tim Webster, and Lleyton Hewitt definitely feels he can make it back to the top. Yes, and he's taken a big step towards that goal.

A key witness at the Dianne Brimble inquest has described the Brisbane mother as a risk-taker who went willingly with a group of men to their cabin. Charlie Kambouris says he believes she was simply out to have a good time. The full extent of the circumstances leading up to Dianne Brimble's death had it not been for 31 photographs taken with this man's camera, but Charlie Kambouris remains unmoved by her fate, the pictures with police in 2003. refusing to even look through I don't want to see this. Then, just minutes into the interview, he storms out. POLICEMAN: GHB or fantasy - can you tell me anything about that? No. Is that - is this the end? You're right to leave at any time you like. Thank you. His only concern - retrieving his camera's memory stick from police custody. The martial arts expert showed the same short temper at the inquest today, blaming Mrs Brimble for ending up drugged on the floor of his companions' cabin. Kambouris says, after hearing she once took the morning-after pill, he thought she was simply a risk-taker. Kambouris then told the court how being named a person of interest had damaged his health, relationships and work opportunities. He described the case as like a flame of shame spreading to all corners of his life. Once his evidence was over he showed little more empathy for the Brimble family outside court. Where's the best place to eat in Sydney? Is that all you have to say about Mrs Brimble? I have nothing to say about Mrs Brimble. Kambouris features in at least one bugged phone conversation to be played to the court tomorrow. Amber Muir, Ten News. A man accused of driving over the limit while disqualified has appeared in court accused of knocking down four people, killing one of them, in Chinatown. 30-year-old Posa Logouva faced Bankstown Court today on five charges of dangerous driving and dangerous driving occasioning death. Police say he ploughed into the pedestrians as they walked along a footpath last month. The Punchbowl man has entered no plea and will reappear in court next week. Sydney Water is facing a backlash after a huge main burst, swamping dozens of homes. It could be days before residents are allowed to return. It's as bad as a water main break can be. Around 3:30 yesterday afternoon, the river began and just kept going for hours. It's thought more than a million litres escaped, most of it into the basements and ground floors of nearby properties.

It's not a good thing to come home to from work. Power and gas were shut off late evening. Fire crews ordering all residents from their homes, concerned about the danger with so much water around. People escaped with what they could. Some, though, left with nothing. This couple managed to sneak back in this morning to retrieve essentials. They just threw us out of our home yesterday. They didn't even care. They didn't allow us to take our clothes. I requested to them that I have a 2-year-old and I need to pick up some medicine. Because of the cold weather, he gets some asthma and stuff like that. it immediately sent a crisis team Sydney Water says to organise emergency accommodation, and it's also defending how long it took to shut the main down, until just before midnight. with the water not off The shutdown took a number of hours, that's true, and that's because whenever a large main is involved, you need to close off valves in a gradual way so as to reduce the risk of creating further damage.

For residents, though, it may still be days before they can return. When it comes to rectifying the damage, Sydney Water says it's asking residents to contact their own insurer in the first instance. If they're not insured or getting the run around, Sydney Waters says it will then be happy to step in. And we will ensure that nobody is financially disadvantaged as a result of what's happened. Fire crews began pumping water out of flooded basements - a job expected to take many hours. Eddy Meyer, Ten News. Time for a check Time rEa check Time for a check of the weather, Angela

for you try to get family and

friends away from this. Cosmetic surgery has become so popular in China, doctors there are finding it hard to keep up with demand. And with Australia at the cutting edge of the industry, Chinese surgeons are heading here to learn the tricks of the trade.

When it comes to plastic surgery, the journey isn't pretty. It's the end result that's beautiful. China's market for nipping and tucking has grown so rapidly it even hosts pageants for plastic surgery patients. And now, for the first time, a Chinese delegation of surgeons has arrived in Sydney to learn the latest techniques from Australian experts.

There's an increase in affluence in the world and along with affluence comes a kick in the desire of people to look as good as they can. And China is no exception. Its plastic surgery industry is now worth more than $2.5 billion annually, with thousands going under the knife for all sorts of reasons. From a female point of view they believe it's going to be easier

so to speak. In Australia the industry is growing rapidly, but here the most popular procedure by far is breast augmentation, followed by facelifts and then liposuction.

Chinese women are mostly booking in for facial procedures, but the market for body work is booming too. And as demand grows, so does the number of different procedures and techniques being developed. There are, of course, subtle differences between various ethnic groups. However, the vast majority are readily translatable into things that can be done in China. Danielle Isdale, Ten News. A warning from US intelligence services that al-Qaeda is plotting another attack on American soil. A declassified report says the terror group plans to move members from Iraq to the US to carry out an attack. Although we have discovered only a handful of individuals in the US with ties to al-Qaeda's senior leadership since September 11, al-Qaeda will intensify its efforts to place operatives here in the homeland. The report also warns al-Qaeda is actively on the hunt for chemical, biological and nuclear weapons. Salvage experts have tried to blow up a stricken container ship off England's south coast.

It's always harder to win on the road, but, then again, at the World Cup almost everyone is on the road. Rob Canning, Ten News. Socceroos super sub Tim Cahill says Australia's World Cup victory over Japan won't give them an edge for this weekend's Asian Cup quarterfinal. The Aussies are settling into Vietnam after shifting from Thailand.

The showdown with Japan is a match many thought would have been the dream final for the tournament. We didn't think that we were going to play Japan this early in the tournament, but what better time to do it? And if we're going to win this tournament, we've got to play the best now, Japan has more J-League rather than European-based players in its squad this time around. The Tour de France campaign of Aussie Cadel Evans is going from strength to strength. He placed third in the ninth stage and is now fourth overall. The stage was won by Colombian Mauricio Soler. After yesterday's rest day the ninth stage brought little relief to the remaining 171 riders, with another three punishing climbs in the French Alps. But it wasn't just the mountains causing problems - a stray dog bringing down Marcus Burghardt. COMMENTATOR: He's gone down and broken a wheel as well. Marcus Burghardt it is that's gone over the top of the dog.

That is ridiculous. Taking a dog to the bike race without having it on a leash is like taking a shark to a swimming event. Both recovered OK, but pre-race favourite Alexandre Vinokourov was still struggling after his fall last week, seeking medical treatment en route. There to witness all the drama, newly elected French President Nicolas Sarkozy. And he saw the unexpected name of Colombian Mauricio Soler

stealing the show. Then he just came up and he's completely blown this breakaway apart. Australian hope Cadel Evans showing he's up for the challenge. And Cadel Evans, the man they keep saying only follows, is the man leading right now. Cadel Evans is testing them today. The leading contenders putting space on the struggling Vinokourov and no-one able to go with the Colombian. They won't stop him now - Alejandro Valverde finishing with a burst to take second ahead of Cadel Evans. The Aussie now fourth overall behind leader Michael Rasmussen, Valverde and Iban Mayo. Neil Cordy, Ten News, That's all for now. Later in Sports Tonight, Manly's Steve Matai fronts the judiciary, and, as a prelude to the Bledisloe Cup, our netballers take on the Kiwis in Auckland.

It's all happening over there.

Tim Bailey left speechless after a dose of anaesthetic at the dentist

today leaving Angela Bishop in

charge of the weather today. How

are we looking? We're looking

chilly, so I've decided to warm us

all up with a bit of a special song

from an up and coming country star

by the name of Amber Lawrence.

Welcome to Tim's weather. Welcome to Tim's weather. You're

one of his mates, I know. You're actually

actually a city Slicker, used actually a city Slicker, used to

be an accountant and gave it up to pursue be an accountant and gave it up to

pursue the career. This is more fun

than the tax. We're going to hear

than the tax. We're going to hear

from you in a few minutes. Quickly

I'll whip around and do the weather first.

Satellite, cloud in the south-east

and cold south-westerly winds

generating showers, mainly in

Tasmania and Victoria. Light snow

falling on the ranges, cloud over

Queensland, only causing the odd

spot of rain. Brisk southerly winds

tomorrow in the south-east will

cause showers on the coasts and

also light snow in the Alps. A high

will clear showers from coastal SA

keeping the interior dry. A trough

will cause rain to develop on the

coast of WA. Rain for coastal NSW,

and on the NSW Ranges south of

Orange. Shower force Victoria,

Tasmania and SA. WA and along the

Tasmania and SA. WA and along the

far North Queensland coast. Amber,

your song is called 'Things that

Bring Me Down'. Bring Me Down'.

# And I know I'm going to feel like

hell tomorrow

# Just one last kiss

# And I know I could end up sad and sorry

# It's worst the risk

# Cause it feels like having a thrill

# And I don't do what I should

# Oh the things that bring me # Oh the things that bring me down

# Feel good

# Oh the things that bring me down

# Feel good And

I'm feeling warmer already. That's

fantastic. That's from an album

called 'The Mile' out town. Now interstate:

the forecast for Sydney, 6-14 and

snies will be at 6:53am.

Amber Lawrence, thank you for

joining us. Your album, do yourself

a favour, back to you guys. Thank you. Australia's answer to Berlin's baby polar bear, Knut, has been unveiled. A tiny white-cheeked gibbon is being hand-raised by keepers at Perth Zoo after being abandoned by her mother. But 7-week-old Li-Lian is not quite ready to be exposed to any adoring fans,

with specialists giving the fragile ape round-the-clock care. She's fed every two hours during the day and every three hours overnight, so she has a carer with her all day and all night.

Usually found in China, Laos and Vietnam, the species is critically endangered.

Zookeepers hope to reunite Li-Lian with her parents in a few months. That's the news at 5:00. I'm Ron Wilson. Goodnight. And I'm Deborah Knight. Thanks for your company. Hope you can join us tomorrow night. Goodnight. Supertext Captions by the Australian Caption Centre. www.auscap.com.au ( PLAYING "FUNERAL MARCH OF A MARIONETTE" ) GOOD EVENING.
