Ten News with Ron Wilson and Deborah Knight. Good evening. Also tonight - Sydneysiders to pay dearly for the desalination plant. And putting on the glitz - TV's biggest stars shine at Hollywood's Emmy Awards. But heading the news at 5:00 - a passenger jet hurtles off the runway at Phuket Airport and explodes in a fireball.

One person from Queensland is believed to be among the fatalities has described while another Australian how he managed to get out alive. Amateur video captured the first fiery moments after the crash of Thai airline. The impact split the plane in two and engulfed the fuselage in flames.

Of the 130 on board, 91 are now confirmed dead. One Australian is believed to be among them - a father of four, Brian Mullery, from the Gold Coast.

Australians, too, are among the survivors. We were preparing to land. He came through the clouds and I think he realised

that either the runway was too close or it was too fast or...

Robert Borland from Western Australia survived the Boxing Day tsunami. He's been lucky again,

suffering a broken arm and burns to his legs. My clothes caught fire, my trousers. I was able to drag myself across to the other side, where the the exit row was and someone was able to assist me out of the aircraft. The 48-year-old has already contacted his mother at home,

who is ever indebted to the mystery man who helped her son. Somebody did phone me in the early hours of the morning and told me that he was dragged off the plane with another man, both in flames. I don't know where that man is but I hope I find him one day and thank him. in heavy wind and rain.

You could tell it was in trouble and came up again. 'cause it kinda landed to numerous Phuket hospitals. Over 20 passengers have been ferried five have been listed as critical. So far, on the body. Two of them have severe burns

has been convicted Kidnap-killer Bruce Burrell Dorothy Davis, of murdering wealthy Sydney widow

the abduction-murder of Kerry Whelan, and just like he's done in of Mrs Davis's body. Burrell is yet to reveal the location After 12 years of anguish, Dorothy Davis's children finally the moment a jury finding by Sydney businessman Bruce Burrell. their 74-year-old mother was murdered

It took eight days of deliberations. The family now want to remember her for how she lived, not how she died. Dotty Davis was a loving mum and a grandma. She was a loyal sister and a trusted friend. Such a good friend she lent Burrell $100,000 to help him buy a home. It was claimed Burrell killed her to avoid repaying the loan. She was last seen leaving her home at Lurline Bay.

Police believe she was planning to visit Burrell's cancer-stricken wife. No trace of her has ever been found. I hope the family of Mrs Davis, in some way, can put this all behind them. It's been a long battle. The verdict appeared to shock Bruce Burrell,

who lifted his head towards the ceiling and let out a long sigh. His victim's family now hopes he'll reveal where he hid her body.

It will only be when we bring her home and bury her with the dignity that she deserves that we will truly be able to be at peace. What the jury didn't know is that Burrell had already been convicted of another murder - that of Sydney mother Kerry Whelan in 1997. Again, money was found to be the motive. Again, her body has never been found. Already serving life behind bars for the Whelan murder,

on a date to be fixed. Burrell will be sentenced Daniel Sutton, Ten News. The household water bill is about to skyrocket with plans to charge the average family hundreds of dollars a year extra, small business to be slugged even more. Part of the reason - a hidden cost in the controversial desalination plant. Sydney's dams may be at 59% but predictions of hotter summers and even longer droughts

are being blamed for the huge increases

being sought in domestic water charges. I'm not denying it's a large increase. Sydney Water is seeking, from the independent pricing tribunal, a 33% increase in residential water bills over the next four years, costing the average family $275. It will be even more for those using more than 250,000 litres a year.

Small business will pay 46% more. 40% of the cost will go towards building Kurnell's controversial desalination plant.

If we project forward 15 years from today and we were faced with the same situation we were faced with three months ago, Sydney would have run out of water. We're doing it to make sure that Sydney always has enough water. Adding to the latest price hike threat -

the revelation that when the desal plant is fully operational taxpayers face an extra maintenance charge of more than $50 million a year. The pricing tribunal - IPART - will hand down its decision by mid-next year. Sydney Water may not get all it's seeking but big price increases are inevitable. Morris Iemma's obsession with the desalination plant is not only going to deliver increased water bills

to Sydney Water residents

but increased costs to taxpayers across the State. The cost of not securing the city's water supply is much greater. Paul Mullins, Ten News. A shocking case of sport rage, a man bashing a 16-year-old soccer player so badly he's had to undergo surgery - twice. Police, yet to speak to the attacker, are promising a full investigation.

Returning to the oval where he was king-hit, 16-year-old Christian Pikardt relives the attack which left him unconscious, his nose broken, by an adult from the other team. The Wakehurst under-16s had just beaten Beacon Hill when a brawl broke out after the full-time whistle. Witnesses say a man aged in his 40s threw the punch that floored Christian. He had a very swollen lip as well

and obviously he was bleeding profusely. He was actually choking on his blood at the time. When I saw him lying on the ground so badly injured, I couldn't believe what had gone on.

It's not clear what sparked the brawl, but parents and spectators were stunned an adult could be responsible for the cowardly attack. they're always trying to help. This was completely out of place. It's just really wrong.

Yeah, it's not on, and the offences are criminal, and any offences that are reported to police like this will be fully investigated. Christian has already had two rounds of surgery to repair his nose. The centre back didn't want to talk about the incident on camera today. He's trying to focus on his Year 11 exams. Police have already interviewed parents and spectators who were here on the day, and they now want to speak to one man in particular -

a 41-year-old father of one of the players on the Beacon Hill team. They'll then decide if they'll lay charges. We would like everybody who was there to come forward and talk to the police. Evan Batten, Ten News. Police are planning a blitz on drunken behaviour around Sydney's pubs and clubs and the Rugby World Cup. during the football finals The warning comes as a new report reveals

alcohol-related crime is costing the police force

an estimated $50 million a year -

enough to fund the salaries of an extra 1,000 officers. Those who go out on the weekend and get a skinful and then become violent have to bear some responsibility for their own actions. To deal with the problem another 30 licensing police are being recruited. There will also be more checks on late-night pubs which continue to serve alcohol to drunk patrons. John Howard is bracing for a crucial opinion poll -

it's the first taken since a new debate erupted about his leadership. Some Liberals are already being accused of abandoning the PM. The acid test of John Howard's boast that he is more popular than his party will come in tomorrow's Newspoll, the first major survey since the latest round of leadership ructions. But the Prime Minister is confident he's already stared down any opposition in his cabinet.

REPORTER: ...any opposition from within your cabinet? Yes.

Labor claims Liberal candidates around the country are airbrushing John Howard out of their advertising. Tanya Plibersek believes she's caught Malcolm Turnbull red-handed. Why this newsletter doesn't once mention the PM by name to the Howard Government? nor make any reference

It's a newsletter by me as the local member

and naturally, it focuses on me. There you go. But the Newspoll has spooked the Government and emboldened Labor. The next prime minister of Australia - Mr Kevin Rudd. Ministers are furious with the Opposition's weekend campaign rally. I think this obsession with opinion polls is getting to one person above all, and that is Mr Rudd.

The Opposition is expecting the Newspoll to correct the 18-point lead it showed a fortnight ago but all sides will be looking very carefully at Mr Howard's performance rating. The Government's hoping its $200 million advertising spend this year will begin to bite soon. Is the PM delaying the election just so he can keep

this massive taxpayer-funded advertising blitz going? John Howard accuses Labor of hypocrisy. Paul Bongiorno, Ten News. A look ahead to sport with Tim Webster, and the player considered the best in the NRL could be suspended from the finals. Yes, Cowboys playmaker Johnathan Thurston could well miss the grand final qualifier against Manly.

and we will look at other ways of improving the road network with our $3.6 billion roads budget. While new or extended motorways will never be built for free, another toll road would not be popular with motorists. Instead, the NRMA is pushing for more freeways to be built, claiming our taxes should cover the bill. I think motorists are saying enough is enough. We've paid enough - build those roads using some of the money we've already paid you.

But at least one expert disagrees. They should be tolled. Every cent that the Government spends on roads is a cent that can't be spent on hospitals, can't be spent on policing. James Boyce, Ten News.

Kate and Gerry McCann can afford the best legal advice. A short walk to Sunday mass with the world's media invited to film at a distance - it was far from the normality they seek but close to the friends and family who join them today in prayers for Madeleine. Away from Rothley's modest Catholic church, sources close to Sir Richard Branson confirm the Virgin boss has put up ?100,000 to start a fund so the McCanns can get the best legal advice available. Elsewhere, other high-profile supporters spoke up for them. Kate and Gerry have been treated unjustly and inhumanely, because the evidence does not stick up at all. There is this great injustice that, they feel, is pounded onto them.

The attention should really be in trying to find Madeleine. A new Europe-wide billboard campaign

supported by television and newspaper adverts has also been launched to raise this little girl's profile even higher. The ?80,000 to pay for it already raised will come from the ?1 million by the Find Madeleine fund. We need to focus back onto Madeleine and away from Kate and Gerry. That's what was said very clear from very, very early on in the campaign. It is all about Madeleine and finding Madeleine. trying to do something normal, Today's church outing was the McCanns comforted by their close friends and family, who prayed for Madeleine.

He came through the clouds and I think he realised that either the runway was too close

or it was too fast or the wind hit him or there was so much rain and wind that he accelerated and tried to pull out. And I thought, "Oh, he's going around again."

They fear overfishing will rob the area of its sharks, one of its great tourist attractions. Pristine and teeming with life - but for how long? Globally, reefs are disappearing than any rainforest. five times faster So far, Australia's Coral Sea is an exception. Out here in the Coral Sea, all those reefs and big fish populations are pretty much intact. For now - and the World Wildlife Fund wants to keep it that way, and to do that, it says, Australia must act. It's a really rare opportunity to be able to put in place management to protect the area long-term before it goes the way of so many They want the Coral Sea made a marine protected area, to shelter it from overfishing - in particular, sharks.
