A drunk P-plater who tried to escape police has landed himself in more trouble after crashing through the front fence of a home in Sydney's west. The stolen gold sedan hit two cars parked outside the house. The driver and his passenger have both been charged. And another P-plate driver has left a trail of destruction, this time in Sydney's east. The white van taking out a number of parked cars in Kensington early this morning. Despite the mess, the driver only suffered minor injuries. A crying, frightened Nicole Kidman feared for her life while being chased by the paparazzi in Sydney.

The claim made in court as Kidman's publicist recalled the dramatic encounter. Nicole Kidman's publicist for 20 years, Wendy Day, told the Supreme Court she remembers a distraught phone call from the Hollywood star in 2005. The actress was crying, claiming she'd almost been run off the road by photographer Jamie Fawcett. She claims Kidman said: Mrs Day also recalled driving out of Sydney airport with Ms Kidman in 2002, telling the court Fawcett jumped onto the road and started taking photos. She slammed on the brakes. On another occasion Mrs Day claimed Fawcett and others used three vehicles to box in a car driving her and Kidman to a movie screening. She claimed the drivers were all using walkie-talkies. Mrs Day was giving evidence

at a Supreme Court defamation hearing

over an article in the 'Sun Herald', claiming Mr Fawcett was Sydney's most disliked freelance photographer and had scared Ms Kidman. The publicity surrounding this case will reach fever pitch on Monday when Nicole Kidman is expected to take the stand as a final and star witness. Daniel Sutton, Ten News. A spectacular collapse at a coal mine has left Victoria relying on other States for power. Water leaking from the Latrobe River caused a wall of the mine to give way, flooding the power station's energy source. The station now down to a quarter of its capacity. We haven't analysed the cause, the nature of it. Everybody's been really focused on the river diversion works. The station normally supplies power to New South Wales, Queensland and South Australia.

The disgraced footballer is accused of storming into a Las Vegas hotel and stealing sports memorabilia which he claims was his. Simpson's co-defendants have already turned on him, contradicting his claims that no guns were involved. The judge today ruled there's enough evidence to go to trial. If convicted, Simpson could face life behind bars. Former cricket star Imran Khan has been dramatically arrested in Pakistan. The MP is being held under anti-terror laws as the country plunges deeper into political crisis. He defied General Musharraf for 11 days. Today Imran Khan emerged from hiding, his aim - to spark a student movement against Pakistan's military ruler. But within minutes, things started to grow wrong. The group loyal to the Jamiat Islami party hurried him into a science block, but was he being protected or held against his will? The stand-off lasted an hour then Imran Khan emerged, gesturing victory, but it wasn't to be. He was shoved into a waiting van. His cricket hero status did him little good here. He was driven to the police, who are lodging cases against him under anti-terror laws. His ex-wife, Jemima Khan, now fears for him. This situation is so unpredictable.

I don't know what Musharraf is going to do next. These charges were a big surprise. I knew that it was quite likely that Imran would be arrested, but I didn't expect them to go this far. General Musharraf's opponents share one thing - they are calling for him to go and democratic elections to be held. What the opposition is talking - they want agitation. They want to disturb law and order and they want to undermine governance. The arrest of Imran Khan is a blow to the opposition.

He was one of the few opposition leaders still out there criticising General Musharraf,

so the Government may well be satisfied that he is now behind bars. One more opponent of General Musharraf silenced tonight. There's been a major scientific breakthrough which could revolutionise medical treatment. For the first time scientists have cloned monkey embryos and the results have been startling. These are beating heart cells created in a lab from a cloned monkey embryo. Now, if scientists can do this with one primate - a monkey - they should, in theory, be able to do the same with another - humans. The macaque monkeys involved are not clones like Dolly the sheep, but scientists have cloned their DNA. It's called therapeutic cloning. This is the first time it's been done with a primate. removing a skin cell from the monkey. The scientists began by The DNA was inserted into a monkey egg which had its DNA removed. A burst of electricity kick-started cell division. This is now a cloned embryo. After a few days the embryo was packed with stem cells which can turn into any tissue in the body.

These were removed and turned into beating heart cells

and nerve cells normally found in the brain. Crucially, this new tissue was a match for the original monkey. Scientists say the next step is to try to do this for humans with conditions like diabetes or brain disorders. If you can obtain the embryonic stem cell line

from individual patients then you can study the disease that that patient has in a lab environment. Secondly, because these cells come from the patient then they will be matched so they would not get rejected if they were grafted back. The journal 'Nature' says it took 300 monkey eggs to produce two stem cell lines, so the technique needs improvement, and no-one yet knows how many years it may be before this yields medical treatments for human patients.

An incredible escape for a driver after a nightmare encounter with a semitrailer. The car seems to vanish as it goes under the truck and is swept along, trapped by the rear wheels. The dazed motorist was dragged for 50m before the semi could stop.

Police say there was no alcohol or speed involved. The driver, who's been treated in hospital, simply wasn't paying attention. Still to come - a fresh blow to Malcolm Turnbull's hopes of re-election. Also - classic hot rods go up against green machines at the LA car show. And paying tribute to a larger-than-life Aussie - fans remember the Crocodile Hunter. Hi, honey. How was your day?

Willie Mason has decided his future! The world's two greatest spin bowlers, Shane Warne and Muttiah Muralitharan, have kissed and made up, describing their public spat as a lover's tiff or a miscommunication. But it's an issue that has completely overshadowed tomorrow's second Test in Hobart. The patch-up job began out the back of Bellerive. A heart-to-heart to heal the rift. Then a united front to face the media before heading off to unveil their own shiny new Test trophy. And then two of the all-time greats again spun themselves out of another sticky situation. I spoke to Murali about it this morning. I said, "I'm pretty happy actually, I'm not miserable." We had a bit of a laugh about it actually. We just talked to each other we patched up. It happens because of miscommunication more than anything else. Despite a bun fight played out in the press the last three days, where first Warne suggested Murali's suspect action might be best watched during a match. To which the Sri Lankan hit back, labelling the retired great a "miserable man". Today, it was a mutual appreciation society. I think what he does with the ball is amazing, so it's not as if I've just said now, I've said it for a long time - he'll take 1,000 as long as his body holds up. Which I'm sure it will. He's a fit young man, he looks after himself. He set up people to get wickets and still I'm learning to set up people to get legs.

My brain still doesn't work as good as his. The blue aside, Murali needs just seven wickets to overtake Warne's world record. And the Aussies are wary of a pitch I think that was not where we got lucky, but with them bowling first in Brisbane he didn't get the best conditions to bowl a spin in there's no doubt at some stage down here, he'll trouble us all. Tim Hodges, Ten News. Sydney FC's depth will be put to the test in New Zealand Australia has cruised into the semifinals of the Netball World Championships after a 68-goal drubbing of the Cook Islands. The Aussies dominated throughout, extended their lead at every break to book a showdown with England in the last four. England are looking sharp and I think they are going to be a massive obstacle to get over so we'll need to be right on top of our game tomorrow. England reached the semis after a bruising win over Malawi. back from his last-start loss at the Shanghai Masters with a straight-sets victory over Nikolay Davydenko. The world number one was far too good for the the Russian. The crowd, at times, forced to come up with their own entertainment. He's been around all week, making a real name for himself. The win sets up a potential showdown with Andy Roddick. The American making light work of Fernando Gonzalez,

the man who beat Federer earlier in the week. That's all for now. Later in Sports Tonight the All Blacks don't sack Graham Henry, but they have invited others to apply for the biggest job in world rugby.
