even if they confess from now to the end of September. From October 1 anyone found rorting the system faces up to three months jail or a fine of $2,200. The Government hopes that will lead to more confessions, clearing more places, like here in Waterloo, for people who really need it. The gloves are off - we've given ourselves new prosecutorial powers. We can crosscheck the Land Titles office to see if they own other property, what cars they own, what boats they own.

The alleged incident took place in Bowral in March when the 36-year-old man was arrested for refusing to obey a move-on notice and using offensive language. The officers are accused of assaulting the man during his arrest and later at the police station. They'll appear in court next month. A foreign student has faced court, charged with scamming eBay customers out of thousands of dollars. He was caught by one of his alleged victims, who used his online skills to help police track him down. By day he's an IT worker but after hours Neil Moreton is a cyber-sleuth. After winning an eBay auction and handing over $350 for a Coles gift card he never received, he set up a website to track down the person responsible. Other eBay users got in touch. They too had paid for gift cards and computers they never received. Mine was $400 but there's people spending $1,000 to $2,000 on computers. Together, they began compiling information

on the alleged fraudster, 26-year-old Chun Fai Tsang - photos, addresses and phone numbers. He met up with him and he got a description of the person. They some name he was using and his car and his rego number and everything. Last night Tsang was arrested as he reported on bail to police.

He faced court today charged with obtaining benefit by deception.

The prosecutor told the court Tsang was a foreign student who is: Tsang's lawyer said that was rubbish and successfully applied for bail on the condition he lives with his uncle, hands over $5,000 and his passport. At the moment Tsang is only charged with failing to deliver computers to two people. But according to court documents, police are still interviewing another 90 potential victims who claim to be owed a total of $150,000.

To this day I'm still contacting people one by one and telling them, "Look, is what's happening, we have a detective in charge." eBay scammers, look out. Danile Sutton, Ten News. It just keeps going up - the price of petrol has soared to a new high tonight. Unleaded is selling for $1.74 a litre at many service stations across Sydney.

but despite that indefinite ban that made training only optional the big forward has made a very public statement that he's trying to work through his personal problems. Barry Hall emerged from his home this morning

with his de facto partner of 11 years, Kylie Stray, close behind him. The all-Australian forward in no mood to talk.

How you coping, mate? Coping alright? Plenty of support from friends? Of course you're going to be upset. Anyone in that same position - something that you love has been taken away and he's going to be in that frame of mind at the moment. Stray was also tight-lipped. Sorry. Hall's on-again, off-again relationship with her was believed to be what prompted the knockout punch on West Coast's Brent Staker in Round 4 which resulted in a 7-match ban. But just three matches back on Collingwood's Shane Wakelin and his attempted strike on Saturday night had the walls around Hall closing in. I don't know if he realises what he's actually done which says to me there's something going on that he needs to work through. Hall left home separately to his girlfriend to surprise his coach and team-mates hours later by turning up at Swans training. Despite being let down by Hall, the players insist they do want him back in the team,

just as soon as the big forward's learnt to deal with his aggression. I think Barry's a good person. He's got a bad habit through it so he can come back and know that it won't happen again.

An anti-tank gun has been found among a terrifying arsenal seized in Castle Hill. The armour-piercing rifle, so powerful it has a shock absorber, was among 69 firearms found by police, including a banned AK-47 assault rifle and an illegal .44 magnum revolver, along with military rifles, shotguns and pistols. A 41-year-old man has been bailed and will appear in court next week. His firearms licence has been suspended. 11 people have been arrested over a multimillion-dollar drug ring

operating north of Sydney. Small amounts of drugs were seized this morning during a series of raids throughout the Cessnock and Lake Macquarie areas.

The raids were carried out by Strike Force Nellinda, which is investigating the supply of the ice.

More than 120 drugs charges are expected to be laid against the six men and five woman.

The State Government has been accused of picking the worst, most expensive option to solve the traffic nightmare around the Iron Cove bridge. has blown the budget and won't work. Opponents say the project This is the State Government's answer to one of the country's most congested corridors. duplicated on its western side, The Iron Cove Bridge will be providing a new dedicated bus lane, city-bound. disentangle the buses from the cars, we can hopefully attract more people to utilise public transport. The free-flowing animation is a far cry from the true daily grind. During Victoria Road's morning peak motorists clock an average speed of just 20km/h.

The Government's proposal prompted angry protests

from thousands of residents in the past and they continue to argue the plan won't improve traffic flows. For a start, it's the waste of money. Secondly, they're not putting the real information out there for people to make their own evaluation of what's proposed. The aim is to free the bottlenecks at either end of the bridge, at the intersections of Lyons Road and Darling Street. But the same volume of traffic will then be required to squeeze into just two lanes to head onto Anzac Bridge. The Opposition can't understand why the budget's blown out to $156 million when there's one less lane after the Government made concessions for local member Verity Firth. The Government has chosen the most expensive and the worst. There are several other options that we would look at before we look at the one the Government's doing. While the Government claims it will reduce travel times for bus commuters by nearly 20 minutes during peak periods, it can't give the same sort of assurance for motorists.

Work is expected to begin in January. Catherine Kennedy, Ten News. With less than a week to go,

Sydney has ramped up preparations for World Youth Day. Protesters have revealed how they'll challenge the State's controversial annoyance laws, while, at the airport, pilgrims are pouring in by the plane-load. After two international flights and, for many, two years of planning, there was really only one way

to describe the feeling of touching down in Sydney. # Praise be to the Lord! Hallelujah! # But the dancing and singing is only half the excitement for these Catholic campers from Germany. It's just amazing to be here now and see so many people that are travelling with us. It's been a long pilgrimage. Even after 20 hours in the air, there are now hours on the road to various country locations. It's a great feeling to celebrate with all the pilgrims from all over the world. This group numbers 117. Up to 100,000 international visitors may register from now through until the weekend, all on the path to see the Pope. I think it's one of the highlights but, um, not the only highlight, I hope. (LAUGHS) So the pilgrims are pouring in but, as expected, so too are the complaints - new police powers bought in for WYD. The fence of State Parliament was used as a clothes rack by the No To Pope Coalition to protest the annoyance laws that came into effect on July 1. If they're going to ask me to take off my T-shirt, and I do comply, then they can't fine me. The police didn't ask her to. It was just a shot, though, at the declared areas that some say go further than APEC. That is, the sole intention of these laws - to intimidate and to exclude people with alternative views.

Addressing the G8 summit in Japan, the Prime Minister remains pessimistic about the prospect of a breakthrough. There was a warm welcome from Kevin Rudd's Japanese counterpart, Prime Minister Fukuda, as the G8 summit heated up on the island of Hokkaido.

Mr Rudd joined 15 other leaders for talks and the hot topic was climate change.

Collectively, their nations are responsible for 80% of world greenhouse emissions. All nations must put their shoulder to the wheel. Mr Rudd had just six minutes to put his case to a tough audience. Australia's voice has been projected. The Australian PM brought with him credibility on climate change action. He's taking a political risk by backing an emissions trading scheme. of the recklessness of Mr Rudd in trying to ram through the emissions trading scheme by 2010. World leaders praised our PM for his tough stance on reducing carbon emissions. Kevin Rudd's presence here at the G8 sends a clear message to those nations sitting on the sidelines of the climate change debate - it's up to each of them to act before it's too late. This will be a tough road. It will be a hard road. But the impasse between the US, India and China

Top stories this news hour - the State is in the grip of a cold snap which has seen the Blue Mountains blanketed by snow and Sydney shiver.

A warning to Generation X and Y - stop your frivolous spending or you'll end up as Generation Debt. With the debt crunch well and truly biting, mortgage mogul John Symond is afraid young Australians are simply not prepared for bad economic times. They're living for today - Generation X and Y fuelling their need for instant gratification with easy money. But with the economic good times at an end,

consumer sentiment has fallen

to its lowest level since the '80s recession. Young people haven't seen that. They've seen full employment. Their friends buy real estate. They made a squillion. They've seen all the good times. The Aussie Home Loans boss says they're simply unprepared, unable to budget or live within their means. John Symond says young people are especially vulnerable to the financial trap of bad debt - lured into racking up hundreds of millions of dollars in freely available no interest, no deposit, deferred-repayment credit plans. And that easy credit has left many with huge debts and no savings. They don't have buffers, so young people, especially, need to be more cautious than any other sector

than they've ever been before. And this is where the crisis is hurting most - the south-western Sydney mortgage belt, where more homes are repossessed than anywhere else in the country.

A popular children's railway day has run out of steam after what's being labelled corporate bullying.

Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban have taken their new daughter, Sunday Rose, home from hospital. The baby's grandfather has revealed her unusual name was inspired

by the muse of a famous artist who led a scandalous life. It's believed the new Kidman-Urban family spent the day at home at their tranquil hideaway just outside Nashville, or maybe at their other home nearby, a gated mansion estate. Either way, it was private. And in Nashville, that's how they like it. We don't pay much attention to them. They don't pay much attention to us. Everyone should leave them alone. And they were. It's thought they left the hospital unseen late last night - 41-year-old Nicole, new father Keith and daughter Sunday Rose, an interesting explanation. whose interesting name has been given Nicole's father, Dr Antony Kidman, suggested it. He says it's after a Victorian patron of the arts in the '30s named Sunday Reed - a talented woman made more famous after a 9-year menage a trois with Australian artist Sidney Nolan and her husband. Years later, the artist's muse took her own life after her husband died. Nicole's parents so fascinated by her story the name stuck. There's still no glimpse of baby Sunday. It's rumoured the Aussie couple will publicly release one photo in exchange for donations to a children's hospital. It's likely the new family will spend plenty of time here in Nashville. It means Keith can keep close to country music and Nicole can raise their daughter Sunday in a town with no paparazzi and very little intrusion on their private lives. Until their reported return to Sydney for Sunday's baptism,

it's just the rolling hills and a happy family.

Hall today stepping down from the Swans leadership group, his team-mates agreeing with club management that his latest onfield flare-up is a sign that all's not right with their flag-winning former captain.

Penrith captain Petero Civoniceva has applauded the 5-year ban

League boss David Gallop says racial abuse won't be tolerated. It was the racial sledge from the man on the right that angered Petero Civoniceva and stung the NRL into action.
