And here's a taste. Gabrielle Boyle, Ten News. To Austria's house of horrors

over the woman kept in a dungeon for 24 years and forced to have seven children by her father. The 73-year-old has now confessed, admitting he kept his daughter as a sex slave while fathering his own grandchildren.

And police have just released photos of the hell-hole cellar. For a quarter of a century, 73-year-old Josef Fritzel remained silent over the truth behind his daughter's disappearance. Now he has cracked. Police say Josef gave them a code to unlock a hidden door at his home. It revealed a network of rooms where the pensioner admitted he locked up his daughter for 24 years. And forced her to bear seven of his children. Elizabeth Fritzel and three of her children were kept prisoners in these small rooms without natural light or fresh air. One of the babies died at birth, the remaining three lead a normal life just a few feet above the dungeon. Fostered by Josef and his unsuspecting wife who believed they'd been abandoned by their runaway mother. (Translation) This was all apparently done in coordination with her father who is responsible for these actions. Evidently he ensured that the appropriate letters were given to the children which had to be written by their mother in a way he had demanded. This is likely because he was an authoritarian and decided what happened and what would happen in the family. The truth only emerged after one of the imprisoned children was admitted to hospital with a serious unknown illness. It was note doctors found in the 19-year-old's pocket from her mother pleading for help which sparked a new interest in her whereabouts. Elizabeth Fritzl and her children are now being cared for by doctors and psychologists trying to heal their physical and mental scars. years without daylight, (Translation) The effects of 20 incest and other illnesses we can research in the next few days it is possible that the 19-year-old woman would never get healthy again.

The small town of Amstetten is shocked by the horrors they lived with unknowingly for more than 20 years. Newspaper headlines called the case the 'crime of a monster' and the 'worst crime of all time' but Austrians have seen similar headlines before. The case has ignited memories The Austrian teenager held captive in a house in Vienna for eight years. She ran to freedom in 2006. While police are not connecting the two cases many Austrians are asking why, yet again, a child has been imprisoned, abused and left undiscovered for so long. Up to 70 people are dead and hundreds have been injured in a train crash in China. Two passenger trains collided just before dawn near the city of Zibo

after one of the trains derailed. Chinese media reports more than 420 people have been hurt in the crash. 51 of them are critical. There are reports it was a head-on collision. 10 carriages from one of the trains fell into a ditch. No foreigners have been injured. And 19 are dead tonight in a helicopter crash in the Black Sea.

of the blocks this morning Tom, the market shot out thoughts. but buyers seemed to have second They did Sandra. The first half hour was great. by more than 80 points The market was up ahead to the remainder of the week, but then perhaps investors looked going to be incredibly important in the US in particular, which is for markets around the world a US interest rate decision because not only do we get on their jobs market we'll also get a reading and how the US economy performed So, amidst that, what we saw was selling in the resource stocks. Part of the reason for that being that the resource sector really has been the backbone of the market this month. It is up as much as 15%. But the money was moving out of that group and into the financial stocks which have been in negative territory but recently just moved into positive territory. They're up by about 5% for the month, the hope being that the NAB's profit result later this week will provide continuing new momentum in that regard. Let's look at the market now for today - some of the biggest gains. Global miners were down. Olivia Newton-John on the final leg Some household names are joining of her great walk to Beijing. Some were even prepared to endure a little embarrassment - in the name of charity. It's not a bad way to start the day - singalongs with Olivia Newton-John and Cliff Richard to get in the mood for a very big walk. (All sing) # You have to believe we are magic. # I just never found it possible to say no to Olivia. So here we are. Magic the kitten was rescued and Olivia has adopted him, carrying him everywhere she goes. So he's our little mascot. The Great Walk to Beijing is no easy walk to Beijing. This is hard work. Every single person joining Olivia Newton-John for this amazing effort is walking with a special person in their hearts, someone who's been affected by cancer. And that's what keeps each and every one of us going. Doing it really tough, though, is Ian Thorpe. I heard a whisper that your shoes are still in Hong Kong. Not just my shoes, all of my luggage. So you might be doing this In thongs, barefoot.

The walk winds up tomorrow, but the fundraising is set to continue. The Duchess of York, I would like to come down and see the centre, see the hospital and really have a good time.

Some serious star power has been used to launch Australian Fashion Week. Celebrities are lining the catwalks with designers saying it's the best year ever. The famous, more than the frocks, took centre stage this morning as the stars turned out to support the launch of Fashion Week.

Designer Kirrily Johnston showed off the first threads on the runway with flowing gowns, gold and headwear. It turned the heads of the social set, with Miranda Kerr a front-row guest and the reviews for our designers were glowing. I think I find them a bit younger and funkier. It's just really good for my age, you know, just funky. Wayne Cooper revealed his latest collection, Clouds and Rainbows, tonight. There were more stars on hand boasting about our best. To us, like, we're from L.A. - Hollywood, the glitz and glamour. We love the bling-bling. One Teapsoon, a well-established Aussie brand, took its inspiration for bling from love, the Roman Empire and 'Mad Max'. Probably the best vibe ever this year. is for their show to come off seamlessly, everything else is a little less organised, with hundreds of photographers all after that perfect picture. This year 250 international buyers and media are in town. This is the week where the Australian fashion industry says "Look at me!" We want the attention of the world on us. Josh Murphy, Ten News.

There's a major twist to yesterday's thrilling draw The AFL has tonight confirmed the Swans had 19 players on the field when Brett Kirk kicked a point to level the scores. And it's been costly weekend for two players from Perth - West Coast midfielder Daniel Kerr has been suspended for five matches

and Fremantle's Josh Carr has been rubbed out for four games. This head butt from volatile Eagle Daniel Kerr was deemed intentional, with medium impact and high contact by the match review panel. COMMENTATOR: Now there's a player down. Kerr - Kerr was involved - in comes Staker - it's on! for Kerr's previous offences, the star Eagle can accept the 3-game ban with a guilty plea or risk five matches by contesting the case. He's been looked at for head-butting previously, but he's never been found guilty. Across town at Fremantle, serial offender Josh Carr has copped three weeks out for an ugly kneeing offence on Gary Ablett. It will blow out to four if the Dockers contest and lose. Brent Staker, the man hit by Barry Hall, has been reprimanded for a strike not caught on camera. Port Adelaide's Chad Cornes is out with a broken finger, but copped a reprimand for this strike. Hawthorn's Ben McGlynn also getting a reprimand with an early guilty plea

while Carlton youngster Darren Pfeiffer's match-day report

was thrown out. On the injury front, North Melbourne forward Aaron Edwards after breaking his leg against the Swans. Hopefully it's not too bad, but I think it's a fractured fibula. Essendon speedster Alwyn Davey's season is over. He'll undergo a knee reconstruction next week. I didn't think it would be that bad but as it came out, it was pretty bad. The Eagles woes continue. Gun defender Adam Hunter is sweating on scans to his knee while Shannon Hurn is facing six weeks on the sidelines with a leg fracture. On the field, premature Kangaroo celebrations from the season's second draw, had the Swans disbelieving. They were right beside me when they were celebrating and I was, "Hang on a second, what are they doing?" I started second guessing as well. And Hawthorn honoured legendary figure John Kennedy with a giant statue at its training base. The players got a first-hand taste of the 3-time premiership coach's great oratory skills. Your finding about yourself and who you are. Well, I've been doing that for about 70 years and it's a pretty disappointing process. Ian Cohen for Sports Tonight. South Sydney veteran David Kidwell has been stripped of the captaincy after failing a club breath test. Kidwell was one of five players who blew over the limit - the other four have been dumped from the first-grade team. David Kidwell implemented South Sydney's zero-tolerance ban. Now it's cost him the captaincy and four others their place in the side after Kidwell, Eddie Paea, Jaiman Lowe, Fetuli Talanoa and Ben Rogers failed to blow zero at Saturday's recovery session. Adding to the woes at Redfern, the Rabbitohs were slugged $70,000 by the NRL for breaching the salary cap last season. The Tigers and the Raiders also attracting hefty penalties among the six clubs fined. On a brighter note, there were some very happy players today after being given their first Kangaroos jersey ahead of next month's Centenary Test against the Kiwis. The fight for the Australian fullback spot as fierce as ever, Melbourne's Billy Slater winning this round. They probably could have picked about three fullbacks for this Test and they would have done a great job so you know, I've just got to make sure I prepare right and do a good job. Reality setting in for North Queensland too, Cowboy's enforcer Carl Webb earning his first call-up on the bench. It was quoted in the paper that I was a little bit teary-eyed - that wasn't true. It was obviously a very proud moment and a bit emotional but it's the highest honour you can have in the game. The other rep players assembled in Sydney this morning ahead of Friday's City-Country Origin clash. Parramatta's Jarryd Hayne not surprised to be among the City boys instead of pulling on the green and gold. JOURNALIST: Did you think you'd miss out on the Test side? Ah, yeah. Of course. I haven't been playing well. Haynesy's form's a bit down. I suppose when you get shot at, you get a few different things going through your head. A blow for the Country side - fullback Brett Stuart ruled out this morning with a calf tear. Very disappointed, I was looking forward to getting back to Wollongong where we grew up. Ben Hornby welcomed into the side, his Dragons team-mate and former Test front-rower Jason Ryles missed out. There's a lot of politics involved in making representative teams and that's just the way they've decided to go and it is really out of my hands. Yeah, if form's got anything to do with it there in the mix, that's for sure. then I would have certainly been
