Doctor Jayant Patel was brought back to Brisbane, hidden in economy class. There was a curtain around his seat, the whole row. He had this whole section. For 13 hours, he rested beside two Queensland police officers. You're not allowed to film on the plane. But there was nowhere to hide once he was back on Australian soil. He just didn't have any expression on his face. Didn't look too worried at all.

His convoy of police cars and motorbikes was tracked from the air and the ground as 58-year-old Patel in a backseat with his head in his hand

on his way to the watch house. Waiting for him, the media and former patients who have spent three years and four months hoping to see him in court. We never gave up hope that this day would happen. Bit edgy waiting to see what happens. Patel - who was chief surgeon at the Bundaberg Hospital - faces 14 charges including three of manslaughter.

Judy Kemp's husband was one of his alleged victims. It is a big step forward and justice will be done.

They've been counting the days since Patel was arrested more than four months ago in his hometown of Portland, Oregon, so they know better than most that this is going to be a long road. As expected Patel has applied for bail. We know it can be a very lengthy process. We are all prepared for that.

Just have to take things one step at a time. What the alleged victims don't what is for the case to be thrown out over claims Patel can't get a fair trial. Leisa Roles, Ten News. Queensland paedophile Dennis Ferguson has been invited to live in Sydney. An activist for prisoner rights says Ferguson is welcome to stay with him and his two children, but his neighbours and the Premier are adamant he's not welcome.

He's been hounded from town to town across Queensland.

Now convicted paedophile Dennis Ferguson may find a haven in Sydney's inner west. I don't have any concern at all.

The truth of it is sex-offending happens everywhere. Activist Brett Collins lives in Lewisham

and says there's room at his home, with his 12-year-old son and 16-year-old daughter. I don't doubt

Dennis would actually work very easily, very smoothly with our family. But residents are furious at the prospect Dennis Ferguson may live next door.

Bit uneasy, I suppose, 'cause my kids are a little bit older. You'd be a little more careful. I won't be throwing out the welcome mat. The Marrickville mayor accepts that Ferguson has to live somewhere. Repeat offenders like Dennis Ferguson, we just don't want them here.

They could pitch a tent in the middle of the outback and send him there and we'd be fine with that. The Justice Action Group is also offering a paid job as a cleaner in their office, paying him the award wage. Queensland authorities say Dennis Ferguson is a free man, so, technically, it is possible he could end up living here in Lewisham, but they say it's best to understand this invitation as nothing more than a publicity stunt. It's a publicity stunt that could backfire if Ferguson takes up the offer. Dennis Ferguson is your type of offender who will groom children. They are very manipulative,

they know how to get around the system, they know how to groom adults. The furore in Queensland has forced police to again move Ferguson to a secret location ahead of the appeal tomorrow. The DPP is expected to argue

he should answer more child sexual assault charges. Evan Batten, Ten News. In sport with Brad McEwan, Greg Norman couldn't come up with a final magical round.

Yes, he missed out on a fairytale ending at the British Open. With his new bride watching on, the Shark slowly slid from the number one spot on the leaderboard.

It could have been the day Greg Norman became the oldest player ever, at age 53, to win the British Open. Instead, the Great White Shark sank in the final stages, chalking up yet another near-miss Major.

COMMENTATOR: It's just started to trickle away from Greg Norman. Well, you know, I can stand here now and say, "Yeah, I'm disappointed." Where does it rank on those? Probably not as high as some of the other ones, that's for sure, because, quite obviously, I've surprised a lot of people. Including the winner. His demeanour and his response to all my good shots on the golf course was just tremendous. Hundreds of Aussie fans lining the course

were thrilled he led the field at all. Never thought - I thought those days were behind us. I am surprised, but, you know, you can't keep a champion down. It's been quite a few years, but he's a great player. He obviously feels rejuvenated. Norman's wife of three weeks, Chris Evert, held her breath for every shot. Clearly forgiving him for playing golf on their honeymoon, the tennis ace stood out in the crowd with her ball-sized diamond ring. Marrying a fellow sport star certainly seems to have been very good for his game. Greg Norman even asked his new wife to help diversify his training regime in the lead-up to this event, playing less golf and more tennis. I'm very happy with my life. It's balanced. It's nice to have a balanced life. He has signed up for the senior British Open in Scotland next week. That's it - I don't plan on playing any more golf after that for a while. I don't have any in my schedule. Except maybe a second honeymoon. At the British Open, Danielle Isdale, Ten News. And shortly in sport, rugby league's all-in brawl that's seen the NRL cite eight players. Plus, the amazing story behind the Aussie who conquered the Alps to claim a stage win in the Tour de France. And a further blow for the Australian Olympic team, with another of our medal ho forced to pull out

of the Beijing Games. Up next - the $60 million solution to Sydney's energy needs.

Also tonight - mums-to-be abandoned. Angry scenes as they fight to save their maternity ward. It's frightening to think you could be stuck on the side of the highway giving birth. And the teenage boy convincing the world to help save lives.

You've got three. So far I've signed up about 11,000 donors and saved four lives.

Another incredible hospital bungle has sparked a furious protest by expectant mothers. They've been forced to find somewhere else to have their babies because their maternity ward has been shut. They're about to give birth and in need of care. Instead they feel abandoned, after their busy maternity ward in the Blue Mountains without warning. was virtually shut down It's terrifying to think you're going to be stuck on the side of the highway giving birth. Tanya's due on Friday and, like 60 other expectant mothers, she now faces at least an hour's drive to the nearest hospital. I was scared to start with, so, you know, it's incredibly scary and nerve-racking. I find it absolutely detestable. I know the roads here -

the traffic jams can be absolutely, unbelievably bad. We absolutely regret disruption to people's lives. It is not something we would intend or had planned for. That's the problem. As more specialist staff resigned, no-one planned anything until health managers were forced to take drastic last-minute action and shut the ward. I think this is absolutely the most revolting way to treat a human being.

On Wednesday, mums-to-be were still being given tours

through the birthing centre of this hospital. The last thing they expected was the next day to be told it would close. There's human beings who have emotions, who have prepared for this, who are being negatively affected, and I want you to know that, and it would be nice if you would look at me as well. I'd like you to know that. I'm determined to see

that my chief executive gets it up and running again. that I consider unacceptable. And it has been handled in a way Its doors will remain shut for at least the next six weeks. Ali Donaldson, Ten News.

An official investigation into the deaths of two rail workers hit by a coal train has found it was their own fault. 49-year-old Geoff Johnson and John Turner, 48, were killed near Singleton last July.

has found The Office of Transport Safety they didn't keep a proper look-out. At the time of the accident, one was kneeling near the points while the other shone a torch onto the tracks. for an overhaul The authority has called of all safety procedures around rail tracks, including automatic warning devices.

A major link in Sydney's electricity supply is powering ahead deep below the surface. But questions are already being asked about whether we really need it. A special underground tunnel that always runs on time, removing the rubble as a 1.7km power tunnel is created. The massive boring machine is drilling through sandstone on the western fringe of Darling Harbour. It's the start of a $60 million project that will deliver more electricity to the city. Demand is increasing at about 3% per annum, and this tunnelling system with the cables that will go in it

will ensure that we have a safe and secure power system in the CBD for the next 20 or 30 years. But at a time when the State and Federal Governments are calling on consumers to use less electricity, it's a project that is sending a mixed message about power use. The question for the Iemma Government today is

if they are pursuing energy efficiency -

that is, reducing the demand that is required on this grid - do they need enhanced capacity?

The simple answer is no. The Government is offsetting the extra electricity by also purchasing renewable power like wind farms and solar panels. The power purchased from Green Power commitment to alternative forms we believe shows the Government's of energy power.

25 metres down and it's hot and dusty. Progress is steady - 10 metres every day.

But it would have been double that if the builders didn't have to deal with so much water as well, especially when it's high tide at Darling Harbour and sea water leaks in. So far it's on track and the tunnel should be finished by November and the cables laid 18 months later. Kevin Wilde, Ten News.

An extraordinary 13-year-old has come to Australia after signing up thousands of donors to his fight against leukaemia.

The young American has saved a number of lives overseas and is hoping to do the same here. One, two, three. Pat Pedraja moves the pieces into place for his sick Aussie friend to find a bone marrow donor. You're doing good, buddy. The 13-year-old became aware of a worldwide donor shortage after learning he had leukaemia two years ago. He's been on a mission ever since to change that. I told my mum I want to do something about this. There's a critical need for bone marrow donors.

And I said to her, "Let's go drive around the USA and search for bone marrow donors." I signed up 5,000 donors that year. The figure quickly jumped to 11,000 extra donors and is climbing now that he's brought his campaign to Australia. Different ethnic groups are particularly encouraged to take part. The chances of finding a match depends very much on your particular tissue typing,

from your particular ethnic group those chances will increase. That's what the Sitha-Nathan family discovered when 4-year-old Siddartha was diagnosed with aplastic anaemia, a rare disorder where the bone marrow stops producing enough blood cells. We had never heard of this illness before. It was a big shock to all of us. Like 70% of patients, Siddartha couldn't find a bone marrow match

in his own family. This isn't just a problem in the United States. Siddartha's impatient for more people to see that too, but you'll have to take my word for it. He doesn't say much while the cameras roll, especially to adults. We're all reporting for Channel Ten, first at 5:00. How about me? And Amber Muir's still here. We took her job.

. Thank you. Finally, some good news for borrowers. There are now signs inflation and interest rates have peaked, just as the Government sets out to convince Australians they'll have to pay more to cut carbon emissions. Facing hard facts is the challenge for the Federal Government as it confronts global warming. The Government recognises

there is no cost-free way to tackle climate change. But maybe the Government is getting lucky. The latest Nielsen Poll has found 77% of Australians believe we should take an international lead and 68% say they would be willing to pay more. And that burden will be lighter if interest rates start falling which is what some economists are now forecasting after a key inflation measure today suggests prices have peaked. I don't think interest rates will go up or down for the rest of the year but in 2009 they will head down. But there is confusion in the Nielsen Poll. Last month it found Australians wanted to pay less for carbon-producing petrol while this month most say they don't understand the Government's climate change plans. 60% say they only slightly or not at all understand emissions trading. In delivering the scheme we want to have a real dialogue with the Australian people. That dialogue has begun with TV and newspaper ads, and the price tag later. with more to come

Paul Bongiorno, Ten News. Presidential hopeful Barack Obama has vowed to boost US troop numbers in Afghanistan if he's elected. The senator enjoyed breakfast with US soldiers during a trip to the Afghan capital, Kabul. He also met with President Hamid Karzai.

The situation is precarious and urgent here in Afghanistan and I believe this has to be our central focus, the central front, on our battle against terrorism. The Democratic candidate is now in Iraq.

'The Dark Knight' has smashed box office records in the US with the biggest opening weekend of all time. The superhero flick took in more than $155 million in its first three days, topping the previous best of $151 million, for 'Spider-Man 3' last year. Certainly, the poignancy of seeing Heath Ledger in his final role

in such a maniacal and dark performance is really gripping. 'The Dark Knight' achieved the highest opening figures for a film in Australia this year when it hit screens last week.

He arrived back in Australia this morning after being extradited from the United States. Sydney airport has experienced one of its busiest days, with tens of thousands of World Youth Day pilgrims leaving Australia. The scene is expected be repeated over the next couple of days.

And Pope Benedict XVI is winging his way back home after his eight days in Sydney. He held a private meeting with church sex abuse victims and thanked the many World Youth Day volunteers before boarding a Qantas flight for Rome. Australian journalist Peter Lloyd will be the subject of high-level talks when Foreign Minister Stephen Smith arrives in Singapore tonight. Ten reporter Eddy Meyer is outside Changi prison, where Lloyd is being held on drugs charges. Peter Lloyd remains in Changi prison behind me this afternoon. We understand he hasn't yet posted bail but that process is under way. They are trying to gather the money, the AUS$45,000, so that he can leave prison. We do understand that Peter has retained

a high-profile Singaporean lawyer to conduct that process and to conduct his legal defence. Once bail is posted, it should only take an hour for the paperwork to finalised and he'll be able to leave prison, of course, not leave Singapore. Stephen Smith, the Foreign Minister, will be here in Singapore tomorrow.

He is attending ASEAN talks. He was planning to make representations on Peter's behalf. But we now understand that's not the case. It's starting to give us an indication from Stephen Smith just how difficult this process is and just how little impact Australia can have in a high-profile drug case.

We are potentially at the beginning

of a long process. The Austrian

government will monitor these very

'Big Brother', the longest-running reality show in Australia, goes off the air in a few hours. Ten's Angela Bishop is at the 'Big Brother' house on the Gold Coast. We are only hours away from saying, "It's time to go..." forever - the last ever 'Big Brother'. Emotions up here on the Gold Coast are bittersweet.

A lot of people have been working on the show across its 8-year history and are sad to see it go. In no way tonight 'Big Brother' will be going out with a whimper -

it will be going out with a bang. Behind me there are rehearsals going on and a little earlier, the evicted 2008 housemates took to the stage to practise their big dance number and I caught up with quite probably one of the most memorable evictees from this season - Travis, who was kicked out last night. I got to say I take full responsibility for the death of 'Big Brother'. I have to say it was my bike shorts that did it and my loveheart sunglasses. Also going into the house tonight for the grand finale, some favourites from 'Big Brother's past. That's right - previous winners, including the only million-dollar man - the lovable, wonderful Trevor Butler. It changed my life because we were able to buy a house and right now, with all the prices going up, we don't have to worry about a mortgage. Bought a house, bought a couple of cars - we've just had a baby boy, Miaka-Jeremy. As always, there will be a chance for housemates past and present, as well as the crew,

to let their hair down tonight in what is sure to be a very big end-of-'Big Brother' bash. We'll bring you all the details in the Late News. Sport now with Brad -

after tearing his hamstring off the bone. The 30-year-old's withdrawal comes a fortnight after Jana Rawlinson was also forced out, with a toe injury.

It is hard for us. I have worked

for the last four years. I suppose

it will hit me more when it takes athlete on the Australian team. Deakes was the best-credentialled As you may have seen earlier in the bulletin, Greg Norman has missed out a fairytale finish at the British Open. The 53-year-old surrendered his overnight lead to finish tied for third Padraig Harrington from Ireland. behind defending champ Back-to-back British Opens for Ireland's Padraig Harrington and a heap of praise for the man he'd left far in his wake. I'd like to thank Greg Norman. He was a tremendous... CROWD CHEERS

His sportsmanship on the golf course is second to none.

I'm sure it was a tough day for him - it looked like it was going to be his story this week. his many Major heartbreaks. Too often unable to find the fairway, his 2-shot overnight lead quickly dissolved. COMMENTATOR: No, it's not happening for Greg. Three bogies to start. Harrington flashed his championship form early in the day with this stunning approach to save par at the first, while colourful Englishman Ian Poulter shot to contention on the back of three home-stretch birdies.

He closed at +7. The Irishman stumbled, Aussie hopes were raised... Norman leads. Nine holes to go. ..but Harrington finished with a flurry - birdies at 13 and 15, then this to set up eagle at the par-five 17th. And that's the shot of the week. Shot of the championship! The defending champ got home with a 4-shot margin, earning return praise from the Shark. The way he finished - a true champion finishes that way, on these holes earlier in the week and he finished strong again today.

Anthony Goodridge, Ten News. St George Illawarra has bolstered its ranks by signing Penrith hooker Luke Priddis for the next two years. Meanwhile, big news in rugby league's under-20s Toyota Cup - a record eight players were today charged over a wild all-in brawl. It started with a seemingly innocuous tackle but ended with eight players facing suspension. Five Cowboys and three Broncos are in hot water

for last Friday night's fireworks in Townsville. Not even in the NRL

have as many players been charged from a single game, let alone a single incident. No anger from Roosters coach Brad Fittler, despite back-to-back losses

and an appointment with in-form Manly. Mate, I'm not worried at all. What we've done in the start of the year is we've put ourselves in a great position, teams going better than most others so at the moment there's a couple of and, you know, we've got some room to improve,

so we're looking to find that. Fittler is sending out a call to arms to all Roosters fans. He hopes to see more than 20,000 in red, white and blue. You couldn't blame Roosters fans for being a bit apprehensive. In their last two games against Manly the Roosters have lost 56-0 and 42-0. They're pretty good at that. They can make a team that's tried their best

look pretty ordinary. Souths say yesterday's ordinary loss to Wests Tigers hasn't ended their finals hopes. They play Newcastle on Sunday, from injury. who have captain Danny Buderus back We'll be more focused this week and ready to rumble when we head up there because it's going to be tough, like you said, with Buderus back in.

But the Rabbitohs might be without Issac Luke, who's facing a one-match ban. Adam Hawse, Ten News.

Swans coach Paul Roos remains noncommittal about when Barry Hall will return to AFL football. But the Swans coach was angry on another front,

after Carlton chief executive Greg Swann described Nick Davis as "not much of a bloke". I'm very, very disappointed to hear Greg say that.

I think, as the CEO of a footy club, that's inappropriate. The Swans have asked for an apology from the Carlton boss. On the injury front, Michael O'Loughlin and Leo Barry are likely to miss Saturday night's match against Adelaide at the SCG. Australia's Cadel Evans has dropped back to third place at the Tour de France, trailing CSC rider Frank Schleck by eight seconds. It was a magical day for Victorian Simon Gerrans,

claiming his first-ever Tour stage win. The peak of the mountain and the peak of his career - 28-year-old Australian Simon Gerrans a Tour de France stage winner. COMMENTATOR: Simon Gerrans, after four Tours de France, he snatches the first-ever victory. Oh, this is by far the highlight of my cycling career by a long way. It's something I've been working towards for so long.

Gerrans's story is remarkable. After injuring his knee as a boy he sought the advice of a family friend and neighbour in Mansfield, Victoria. That man happened to be Australia's first Tour de France yellow jersey winner, Phil Anderson, who told Simon to get on a bike. In the peloton there were crashes... You just touch your brakes and a whole stack of riders go down.

..and plenty of attacking riding. He just goes round the corner and it's so slippery. Australia's Cadel Evans was ambushed and lost time to several general classification rivals, including new race leader Frank Schleck. Evans trails the yellow jersey by just eight seconds. Rob Canning, Ten News. 7-time world champion Valentino Rossi has stretched his lead over Australian Casey Stoner with victory in this morning's United States MotoGP. Laguna Seca proved a battle royale between two as the others self-destructed early. COMMENTATOR: Oh, God! That's Jorge Lorenzo. The two best in the business on two wheels then fought tooth and nail. Oh, look at this, elbows out. Italian maestro Valentino Rossi and his heir apparent Casey Stoner staged one of the most gripping duels in the sport's history...

This is motorcycle racing at its best. ..until Stoner pushed too hard. His bid for victory was over. He's gone wide! Can he keep it up? Oh, that could be game over for Casey Stoner. He's gone, he's gone. Stoner's fallen. He'd resume, but couldn't catch Rossi. Rossi wins the US Grand Prix. The Yamaha rider's championship lead over Stoner is out to 25 points.

The Aussie finished second. Countryman Chris Vermeulen was third. In the Czech Republic, Troy Bayliss made a clean sweep of round nine of the World Superbikes. Vintage Bayliss! The best face plant award goes to Frenchman Regis Laconi. Aussie success stretched to four wheels, Ryan Briscoe winning this morning's Indy Car race in Ohio.

A frightening moment in the German Formula 1 race. And gearbox is hard into the wall. A lot of energy there. I wouldn't be at all surprised if Glock is quite dazed by that. Toyota's Timo Glock lucky to walk away from the frightening wreck. The race another flaming disaster for Mark Webber. But it was pure joy for Lewis Hamilton,

the McLaren driver with win four of '08. A wonderful victory for Lewis Hamilton. Hamilton now leads the title fight from Massa by four points. Tim Hodges, Ten News.
