A major Sydney drug ring is in tatters tonight, with police seizing $35 million in cocaine and ecstasy and a machine that can pop out a thousand pills a minute. Asian Crime Squad detectives also recovered $600,000 in cash. A police operation that began with the seizure of 30kg of ecstasy at this Kingsgrove factory unit earlier this year has now led to eight arrests and the breaking of what police describe as a major drug syndicate. An alleged key player in the gang,

31-year-old Michael Andrew Brack of Turramurra, faces six charges, including the supply and manufacture of commercial quantities of ecstasy

and possessing $41,000, alleged to be the proceeds of crime. Asian Crime Squad detectives alleged that a total of 75kg of ecstasy and 7kg of cocaine has been seized from the gang, with a wholesale value of $35 million. The alleged principal of the gang, 34-year-old Andrew Deakin, is in custody and also appeared in court today. Police allege $635,000 in cash has been seized along with several firearms, including a shortened SKS military assault rifle. Police claim the clandestine lab was a large-scale manufacturing plant for MDMA, or ecstasy. Inside they found a pill press capable of making 1,000 tablets a minute. Detectives allegedly seized $170,000 in cash from this Leichhardt premises. At a safe house in this Rozelle unit block police allegedly found 27kg of MDMA, 6kg of cocaine and $300,000 in cash. When arrested, Brack allegedly had 35 mobile phones in his possession. John Hill, Ten News. A gang of gunmen has ambushed an armoured van in Sydney's south-west.

Chubb security guards were bailed up and forced to hand over cash while stopped at a Greenacre service station. The bandits then sped off down Boronia Road in a silver Mercedes. Police are appealing for witnesses. More traffic headaches for Sydney, with claims road changes and construction work will force more motorists into the Lane Cove Tunnel. The Government denying vehicles will be funneled to boost the number of toll-payers. The Roads Minister inspects work on a bus interchange - part of the Lane Cove Tunnel project -

seeking to play down claims motorists are being forced into the tunnel by the latest construction work and threatened traffic chaos We will keep Epping Road as a viable option for those motorists that want to use it and it's really up to them.

But the Minister admits Epping Road will get a whole lot busier. Two general traffic lanes each way until January next year, will be reduced from three each way when two general traffic lanes will be replaced by priority bus lanes. The Government paid the tunnel operators $25 million to delay the changes until after the March election. it smells like a tunnel funnel, It looks like a tunnel funnel, and I'm sure the local people believe it is what it is, and that is a tunnel funnel. The Lane Cove Tunnel

is currently handling 52,000 cars a day, and rising. But, like the Cross City Tunnel, that's well below original estimates. So far the Lane Cove Tunnel has escaped the anger and frustration generated by the Cross City Tunnel. But all that could change in the future as the emphasis moves This project was never just about cars. Paul Mullins, Ten News. Let's take a look at what's ahead in Sport now with Brad McEwan.

But disgruntled apprentice painter Erin Gebert alleges part-time actor Damien Richardson is himself ripping off young workers. The 20-year-old claims eight weeks pay, or $2,000, was unfairly withheld by his former boss. He did that kind of stuff to me and now he's out preaching it, saying, "You can't do this." Felt pretty bad. Fellow painter Phillip Graham, now holidaying overseas, His father's amused at Mr Richardson's latest venture. It doesn't escape me at all. I think the irony is absolutely palpable. Several trade suppliers in Melbourne's north-east say Mr Richardson also owes them. He admits to some unpaid debts, but denies Erin Gebert's claims. I've received no invoices from this person at all, and they're making a claim only because basically they've seen me on television. Not once, ever, has he ever asked me for money, ever.

A narrow escape for staff at a sushi restaurant in Atlanta - these frightening pictures show a car crashing through the front window just minutes before it was due to open for dinner. I heard this big crash and I thought it was a tornado, and I quickly, you know, run out, I look to the right of the patio

and there was a car there. Police say the 57-year-old driver was drunk. The Australian pro skater who survived a horrifying crash during an extreme competition in the United States is vowing to get back on his board. He fell more than 13 metres and still managed to walk away. Jake Brown was in first place at the Extreme Games competition when, in midair, his board went from under him. After just two days in hospital he's resting up in Malibu nursing a broken wrist, a fractured vertebra and internal bruising, but otherwise all in one piece.

He knows it could've been very different. If the fall was any stronger, I'm sure I could have been For the past eight years Jake has earned a living from skateboarding.

Moments before his fall he was on a career high, completing two 360-degree turns in midair, the first skater to do so in competition. On his next run the 32-year-old was scrambling in the air, attempting to manoeuvre his body to break the fall. I decided to turn around and take the fall to my feet, my back and my head. Looking on was his mentor and fellow skater Danny Way. It brought, like, tears to my eyes, you know, seeing him hit the floor that hard. I mean, if anyone's gonna walk away, Jake Brown is that type of guy. Although Jake will require

considerable follow-up medical treatment, he hasn't ruled out being back on his skateboard and competing again in as little as three weeks.

Some might suggest he's used up all his luck, but giving the sport away isn't an option. It's just all I've been doing my whole life.

Thanks for your time. Accusations of genocide today as Canberra tries to push through laws for its Aboriginal intervention - furious elders clashing with members of the Government. The Government called it a national emergency but Aboriginal leaders from the Northern Territory say into their communities

is more of a national disgrace. This is about the beginning of the end of Aboriginal culture. It is, in some ways, genocide. Cheered on by church and welfare leaders, the elders have condemned the Government for rushing its legislation through the Parliament without proper consultation. The Minister wants the laws enacting major welfare and social changes

as part of the emergency response passed by the end of the week.

What is actually happening here is a return to the days of assimilation. Looking on - maverick Liberal senator Bill Heffernan, his heckling given short shrift by the crowd. CROWD BOOS WOMAN: Go away. It's Bill Heffernan. Tension too inside Parliament - for interrupting the Minister. a protester ejected This country here was the one that trained Aboriginal people how to molest, trained people how to do all the rubbish that's happening today. The Government resolute. The need is urgent and immediate and the Government is stepping up to plate. Just 24 hours after first seeing the legislation, agreed to continue its support a tense Labor Caucus but with some amendments, including deleting exclusions of the Racial Discrimination Act. that the Minister will recognise that those amendments are also offered in good faith. Brad Hodson, Ten News. A judge's wife who bit a policeman is back in a Sydney court appealing her conviction. 63-year-old Joyce Davies apparently bit the officer so hard she drew blood, after failing to comply with a breath test.

Now my heart is only working at 25%. With damaged muscles slowing blood flow, he comes close to collapse when his heart stops pumping properly. More times than I can count. But the 65-year-old war veteran has been given a second chance, one of the first Australians to trial a herbal heart treatment that's undergone an exhaustive 2-year international clinical trial. There was a 45% reduction of people just dying suddenly. Dramatic results, basically saving one in two heart failure patients who tried it. Instead of 50 people dropping dead, only 25 did It's being hailed as the world's best heart tonic made from a dense thorn scrub called flowering hawthorn. It contains powerful antioxidants that increase blood flow by dilating coronary arteries. This hawthorn extract, adding to all the regular drug therapy,

It is a significant step forward

for managing patients with very sick hearts. More than 2,500 people took part in the hawthorn trial, reporting healthier hearts within six weeks and no side effects. Give me more time save my life, probably. Lexy Hamilton-Smith, Ten News. The Australian share market is back in the black
