This morning, 10% less than normal. Businesses are reporting more people and there's been a 30% jump in annual leave. Many are going to take 4-day weekends or take the whole week off. The true test for the city will be tomorrow and particularly Wednesday and Thursday, when President Bush's motorcade will randomly block streets with little or no notice and with the barriers closed, forcing pedestrians to find other ways around the CBD. Details released by the White House confirm the president will be on the move Wednesday and Thursday, during the morning peak. You ain't seen nothing yet, because things are going to get a lot tougher. Today was the lowest level of security Sydney will see for APEC. Moving around will only become more difficult. Josh Murphy, Ten News.

Climate change protesters have caused major disruption at one of Victoria's largest energy suppliers. Four people locked themselves to conveyer belts shortly after 5:00 this morning. Other suppliers in the grid were forced to pick up the slack to avoid interruptions. Management was furious at the security breach. We don't know how easy it was for them to get in. We know they got in and that's something that's still under review. The protesters calling on world leaders attending the APEC Summit to stop using fossil fuels. Finally, proof oil companies are ripping us off. The NRMA claims it has evidence that prices at the pump started falling Petrol stations have been calmer places in recent months - the wild ride for prices nowhere to be seen. And the NRMA believes it comes down to just one thing - the June announcement of a federal probe into pricing. And we think it shows beyond any shadow of a doubt that prior to the announcement motorists were being ripped off, because since the announcement the price of petrol has come down, even though the price of crude oil has gone up. Prices recently have fluctuated between $1.15 a litre and $1.30. Just before the inquiry was announced it was hitting highs above $1.40. And this is the NRMA's smoking gun. Now, while this graph what it basically shows is that the price of Tapis crude was much lower at the beginning of the year than it is today, yet the price of petrol at the pump is about the same when, really, it should be much, much higher too. The NRMA says

prices should be 16 cents a litre higher now but aren't.

Lo and behold, when someone's looking over their shoulder and they've got to account for their actions, suddenly they find that they're reasonable and responsible and lower the price of petrol. That's what it should have been all along. The Competition and Consumer Commission is holding two days of hearings in Sydney, and, along with the NRMA, will question oil companies and supermarket chains. of this inquiry to, first, increase the transparency in the marketplace about petrol prices at the various levels of the industry and to identify any current impediments to efficient pricing. The NRMA wants the ACCC to recommend that petrol be regulated, because the oil companies, it says, simply can't be trusted. Eddy Meyer, Ten News.

Traffic gridlock in Sydney's west this morning with an accident blocking all city-bound lanes of the M4. Two trucks and a car collided on the motorway near Prospect. One driver had to be treated by ambulance crews after being crushed in the wreckage. The lanes were closed for nearly two hours, while the crash was investigated. Outbound drivers were also delayed. There's been a breakthrough in the treatment of diabetes, which could possibly save millions of lives and the best news is

the key medication is already available. Gregory Quinn is one of 600,000 Australians

dealing with type 2 diabetes.

I've had to watch my weight. I've also had to go to gym and do a bit of dancing. Two-thirds of diabetics have high blood pressure and most are either killed or disabled by related complications, like heart attacks and kidney failure -

until now.

Many hundreds of thousands, perhaps even millions of deaths and disabling and major disease events could be avoided. Researchers at Sydney's George Institute studied the effect of two blood pressure drugs on more than 11,000 patients worldwide.

The combination of perindopril and indapamide markedly reduced their risk of dying. The number of deaths from any cause was reduced by 14% and the heart and vascular deaths were reduced by 18%, so almost one-fifth reduction. The drugs even worked for diabetics with normal blood pressure, like Gregory. Ah, your blood pressure's very good, so that's also good. The breakthrough results are now being presented in Vienna at the European Congress of Cardiology. Researchers are demanding urgent action to ensure patients with type 2 diabetes are identified and treated. The drug combination is already sold in Australia

as Coversyl Plus. Kimberley Harper, Ten News.

The British Government says it's part of the ongoing process of handing over to Iraqi security forces. There's a limit now to what we can usefully do in Iraq, a limit which, in my judgment, has reached the extent that we ought to have a framework for a total withdrawal of all of our troops. The Australian Government is describing the Basra withdrawal as a sign of progress. A mass grave of Australian soldiers executed during World War Two

But instead of care as prisoners of war, they were herded into this old workers' hut, machine-gunned, then doused in petrol and incinerated.

Souths enforcer David Fa'alogo has apologised to his team-mates and Rabbitohs fans, but not to Braith Anasta, after learning he faces a 7-match ban for punching the Roosters five-eighth last Saturday night. The Bulldogs have judiciary concerns too - Sonny Bill Williams facing a 3-match suspension for striking. David Fa'alogo could be about to start his summer holidays early - hopes of playing in Souths' first finals appearance in 18 years virtually over. COMMENTATOR: Oh, Fa'alogo! Fa'alogo claims he lashed out because he was being choked by Anasta's tackle. Memories revived of Jaiman Lowe's attack on Brett Delaney. The skipper admitting his players need to keep Yeah, I think we do. There's been two incidents this year where the player's been sin-binned or sent off. We've just got to go through the right channels. His co-captain with a different spin on Fa'alogo's fistwork. It looked good but, yeah, no comment. He didn't know it at the time but Aaron Payne had good reason to smile -

Sonny Bill Williams charged and could be out of the Cowboys-Dogs semi after this hit on Johnathon Thurston. It's a pretty important time of the year. They'll go through the process and hopefully he gets off. just a second successive minor premiership. Melbourne have lost just three games all season, but anyone who thinks this is headed south in a few weeks time had better think again. Just two of the last eight minor premiers have actually gone on to win the grand final. after the game and the coach spoke to us about starting all over again. I think it's anyone's game now.

That includes Parramatta - Jarryd Hayne still tallying up the tries from their romp against Brisbane. Big win like that, it's a big confidence booster not only for the team but for all the supporters and everyone knowing that we've got what it takes. And in breaking news - Braith Anasta's outburst at the referee on Saturday being put on notice will lead to finals players about how they should speak to officials. Meanwhile, Manly are set to lose key forward Brent Kite for one to three weeks with a groin injury. A mad Monday warning for NRL players in the wake of last week's extraordinary drug use revelations from Andrew Johns. League boss David Gallop reminded partying players about the game's new drug detection regime. They should know and their clubs should know they are going to be under scrutiny and to be careful. And one NRL captain is calling on players to report team-mates dabbling in drugs. It's a community problem, as well, and you see the side effects Sydney Swans co-captain Barry Hall is set to return from injury

for Saturday night's sudden death final against Collingwood.

Tadhg Kennelly and Amon Buchanan also likely to be back on deck. The Swans doing well without the trio yesterday, their 72-point win over Hawthorn convincing Jude Bolton that they've turned around their patchy run of form. We really want to just get back to that fercious tackling that ferocious tackling and things like that, the hardness that we wanted to put on the game. It sort of translated into a good win. And Bolton reckons the Swans will take better form into the finals than they did last year.

You'll see the Swans' finals match here on Ten. The Wallabies are convinced they'll be the second team of French fans after 10,000 rugby-crazed fans flocked to watch the side train. Astonishing scenes as the Wallabies conducted their first public training session 10,000 people packing the stands to see the two-time world champions,

and it blew the players away. CROWD CHEERS I've never had a sold-out training venue like that. No, that's something I'll cherish. It was very weird running out initially, it felt like we were about to start a match. Then, afterwards, going around and clapping the crowd, it was like you just finished a match, so a great atmosphere. The rugby-mad people of Montpellier prematurely kicking off the World Cup. CROWD CHEERS

It was really amazing to see them play. I like the Wallabies. It's a very good team. It's the better team in the world. That's a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, I think. The French turning on first-rate hospitality for Australia, including a police escort everywhere the side travels. It's certainly something to see when you're going up the wrong side of the road and there's police motorbikes going everywhere, and they're kicking cars and whatever to get them out of the way. Even the Wallabies' Montpellier training facility is brand-new. This is the first time this stadium will be used with the public. It's been a couple of years in the planning with the city of Montpellier and because we based ourselves here through to build this stadium. they were able to get funding of the Wallabies This unbelievable treatment right throughout the World Cup. will continue it's under construction.
