The heart-broken father of Dean Shillingsworth has made an emotional trip to the pond where the 2-year-old's body was found in a suitcase, the former dancer making the journey after being released from prison. A week after his tiny body was discovered in a suitcase, Dean Shillingsworth's father, Paul, finally made a pilgrimage to the spot where his son was found. Supported by his extended family, Paul Shillingsworth had made the 5-hour-long journey from Junee, where he was released from prison this morning. It was an emotional visit for the grieving father, who had raised Dean for the first year of his life. Family members taking Paul in their arms to help console his grief. Pretty sad. I can't explain it. I just lost my son who I'm never going to see again. He was shown the flowers and tributes left by members of the local community,

who have felt the loss of the 2-year-old almost as acutely as his own family. I want to thank all the brothers in Junee Correctional Centre

for giving me their support, and everyone in NSW for their support. The mood was sombre and respectful - the father lost in his own thoughts. While his father will now be at the grave side, Dean mother, who is accused of his murder, is unlikely to attend the funeral, which will be held next week at Brewarrina. Preparations well under way for a community memorial service, which will be held at the Ambarvale duck pond on Friday afternoon - the Anglican minister officiating says it will help bring the community together. Even though there has been this tragic event, it is not the time to panic about our community but to realise the world is still the same place.

And like the local community, the Shillingsworth clan say they'll never forget little Dean. John Hill, Ten News.

California's deadly bushfires claimed more lives today - at least five people have now been killed by the flames burning out of control across the state. 500,000 people have been forced to flee their homes. Ten's Nicole Strahan is with some of them taking shelter near San Diego. Good evening. Another night in limbo for thousands of people

The question is, do they have homes to return to? I told you to get out! You need to get out now! is proving just too great, The fury of the deadly flames

home after home crumbling, whole streets left in ruins, lives thrown into disarray. The number of homes and businesses destroyed stands at over 1,400, and it's rising by the hour. It's very scary. After more than three days fire crews still haven't been able to stop the spread of what they're calling the beast,

and it's a beast growing in size, with several of the dozen blazes burning across Southern California joining up. The persistent strong and hot Santa Ana winds have made fighting the flames from the air at times near impossible. The winds are common for this time of year, but gusts of over 100km/h are not, sending embers across vast areas.

Freedom tonight for a mother accused of murdering her four children. The case against the 28-year-old collapsing

after vital medical evidence was ruled inadmissible. Carol Louise Matthey walked free from Melbourne's Supreme Court with a small smile following her big ordeal,

learning the four murder charges she faced over the deaths of four of her children had been dismissed. You must be incredibly relieved. The Geelong woman was charged in 2005 for killing her sons, Joshua, three months. Jacob, seven months and her daughters, Chloe, just nine weeks old. All four died between 1998 and 2003. She's believed to have been the only adult present in each case. What would you say to people that would still have their suspicions given the extraordinary case it's been? No comment. sorry. Are you not guilty Carol? No. But that may never be known with the prosecution case stumbling from the start. After more than a month of pre-trial legal argument, the judge decided the Crown's case was too weak,

with much of their evidence inadmissible. He thanked both legal teams before allowing Ms Matthey to leave the dock. The Acting Director of Public Prosecutions today revealed: She has lost her four children and then to be charged with the murder of them is, I think, unprecedented, certainly in this State, and her loss and sadness is both profound and ongoing. Previously, Coroners had found two of the children died from cot death, another from a rare infection, and the toddler, after a fall. Ms Matthey has one surviving child. Mignon Stewart, Ten News. Yet more scandal for Royal North Shore hospital, administrators forced to apologise again after the media exposed another series of bungles this time involving a woman left in crippling pain. Sara Claridge says she's been let down by Royal North Shore Hospital. Told she needed an operation in June, she was happy to wait until the end of September, but her surgery has now been cancelled several times. I've been stuffed around for over a year, and my condition is not getting any better - it's actually getting worse.

The young mother from Greenwich has pre-cancerous cells on her cervix and crippling endometriosis. It's extremely painful. It basically leaves me where I can't get out of bed in the morning. The condition led her mother to have a hysterectomy at 27. Sara is only 26. Remarkably, publicity about her case has seen the hospital ring her this morning and book her in but after the 90-day deadline her surgeon wanted her seen by. She's accepted a date on 8 November which will actually see her outside the 90 days - it will take her to 111 days. Officially, the first operation was cancelled because of a lack of nurses. In fact, they are 100 positions down on where they should be here on Royal North Shore. On the second occasion, more urgent cases took priority. Originally, Sara's doctor was blamed for the delay. but the hospital has now apologised to him. The chief executive has personally contacted the surgeon in question and apologised for the confusion/ Reba Meagher is not up to the job of health minister. Her denial of problems at Royal North Shore Hospital, her inability to understand the consequences for people like Sara Claridge make her unfit for the job. And for Sara and her husband, Nick, neither is Royal North Shore. If I had a choice, to have the operation done. I would not go there Kevin Wilde, Ten News.

Dean's funeral is expected to take place next Thursday. And higher than expected inflation figures released today make an interest rate rise likely before the federal election.

The Reserve Bank has already warned it will not hesitate to lift rates during the election campaign if the economy needs it. Ten political editor Paul Bongiorno joins us now from Canberra. Paul, it will be unprecedented if rates rise as now expected during this campaign. Just how damaging is this inflation figure for John Howard?

Well, I've got to say, Deb, there's

a paradox here. The headline figure

is the best or lowest rate in eight

years. But economists tell us the

Reserve Bank will look at three

measures of underlying inflation -

makes you wonder why they published

the headline rate. We know from a

Reuters poll-trend analysis that

some pick-up the Government was

getting out of its May budget

ground to a screeching halt in

August when the bank last raised

rates. I suspect, in fact, you

could put your money on it, that if

rates go up, it would be the last

nail in the coughen for the

Government. It's not necessarily a

free kick for Labor, though. This

could also prove problematic for

Kevin Rudd. One senior economist I

spoke to today said feeding into the

the concerns of the Reserve the concerns of the Reserve Bank

would be the billions of dollars

both major parties are promising

to pump into an already-overheating economy. But I think the economy. But I think the problem for Kevin Rudd, indeed for John

Howard, if either of them,

depending on who wins the election,

will come after the election,

because the market is also

predicting further rate rises into next year. Ten political editor Paul Bongiorno in Canberra.

After months of anguish and tense wrangling over Peter Brock's will, the Supreme Court has ruled against his partner Julie Bamford. The judge's reasons were handed down just minutes ago, the motor racing legend's ex-wife, Bev Brock, in court to hear the ruling.

Manufacturers are shedding kilos to make screens as thin as paper.

You won't see these models in the stores for months, or even years, get a load of your future tube. but couch potatoes Right now Japan's big electronics companies are locked in a battle of the bulge.

They're trying to create screens so thin they're literally just a fraction of an inch thick. Thin used to mean monitors 4 inches thick. Well, 4 inches is the new fat. This baby is just 7/10ths of an inch, slimmed down with its signal delivered wirelessly and invisibly from the floor, TVs are aspiring to become, yes, art. If it's thin enough

you can actually store it like automatically into a console. So how low can they go? Right now the world's skinniest TV is this one, just a hair over a 10th of an inch thick.

Our dream is to make this like thin paper. In other words, goodbye bulky TV sets, hello wallpaper.
