I want full transparency. I don't want any cover-up here,

I want all the information available. Two independent inquiries will attempt to find why complaints weren't handled properly. Josh Murphy, Ten News. Police think there might be gang links to an overnight murder where a man was repeatedly shot in the head and left to die in a suburban street. Detectives are investigating whether more than one killer was involved. Forensic police worked through the night at the scene of the killing. Officers continued the search for evidence throughout the day, scouring the park. bushland and quiet surrounding streets for clues, but didn't find the murder weapon. Frightened residents heard the gunshots ring out just before 9:00pm. Bang! Bang! That's it. Just all these police and I say to my husband, "What's happened?" Full of the street, police. Bang! Bang! Three times and my wife say, "What this one?" And I say, "Tomorrow public holiday, maybe cracker boys." along the street covered in blood. The male victim was seen staggering He then collapsed in the middle of the road with head wounds. When police arrived they performed CPR but ambulance crews pronounced the man dead at the scene. It's understood the victim didn't live nearby. Why he was in the poorly lit park at night remains a mystery.

Police aren't saying whether they are looking for more than one murderer. Detectives are appealing for any witnesses to the shooting to come forward. But Ten News understands the murder is linked to an investigation already under way. No. No see nothing. No. Me scared. Tim Potter, Ten News. The family of a former 'Australian Idol' star who fell to his death at the weekend refuse to believe he took his own life. Levi Kereama was about to launch a new album and his brothers say he had everything to live for. If 'Idol' star Levi Kereama was depressed, he hid it well.

He was always smiling and had a big heart. And he had big dreams. it's impossible he took his own life. That's why his family says He just fell. It was just an accident, you know? 25-year-old Levi fell to his death from a Brisbane hotel balcony on Saturday night just hours after telling his brother he was happy. and he says, "I'm going to Parklife "and it's a beautiful day, it's 28 degrees." and I said, "Oh, have fun." He was happy, very happy and looking forward to the day. He had every reason to be.

Levi and his brothers, who are known as The Bridge, had just finished recording a new album. Now they're releasing his music without him. (SONG) # See what Your future holds inside # Come with me. # His heart's in it and you can feel it, you know, and I'm sure his fans will enjoy it. The song wasn't due to be released for months but now should be on iTunes within days. That's all he wanted to do, was music. The new publicity shots that he was so proud of will now be a sad reminder of a life cut short.

Everybody will be sharing a sense of loss. That was probably the best thing I have done in my whole life.

And anyone needing help in times of crisis can ring Lifeline on 13 11 14 or Beyond Blue on 1300 22 46 36. to its lowest level in two years, The Australian dollar has plunged has hit a 3-year low. while the stock market As the world credit crunch bites harder, tomorrow the Reserve Bank is expected to slash interest rates. Storm clouds over the national capital - a powerful metaphor for the world credit crisis buffeting our financial markets. The holiday in some States didn't stop the share market plunging another 150 points. It's now down 10% over the past fortnight. Many experts agree with the ANZ's Saul Eslake - the economy needs a boost, and the Reserve Bank will offer one tomorrow. They'll need to cut the cash rate about 0.5%. Investors are fleeing the Australian dollar in anticipation. It plunged 2.5 cents to its lowest level in more than two years. But the ability of our banks to pass on the interest rate cut is being severely hit by developments overseas. Germany's second-biggest mortgage lender needed an $83 billion bailout overnight. The German Government reluctantly drawn in after a private rescue collapsed. Fortis Bank in Belgium is in similar strife. It means the cost of money, or the rate at which banks borrow from each other, has skyrocketed as confidence is shaken. Treasury figures show the wholesale cost of funds to our banks has risen a massive 0.75% in the past four weeks. That's not something they can ignore in deciding how to price the loans to their customers. What is important at this time of global financial uncertainty is the long-term financial stability of the nation. Clearly the Reserve will want to see all interest rates fall. Pressure will be on the banks to pass on at least half the cut on offer The Treasurer is in no mood to allow them to hide behind the crisis a moment longer than is necessary. Paul Bongiorno, Ten News.

WOMAN 2: They've delivered 172 extra hospital beds with more doctors and nurses... Is that right? Yeah. ..increased elective surgery to nearly 10,000 every year and upgraded the ambulance fleet. Wow! I did read Labor has funded a new intensive care unit and a neurosurgery suite for our hospitals. Yep, and they're also building a new women's and children's hospital for Canberra. That's great! VOICEOVER: ACT Labor: Household surfaces can be covered with harmful germs. If you're cleaning with an overused sponge, Pine O Cleen All in 1 Wipes kill 99.9% of household germs. So now cleaning plus disinfecting equals All in 1, with Pine O Cleen All in 1 Wipes. VOICEOVER: When you vote in the ACT election on Saturday, No ticks, no crosses.

That's important. VOICEOVER: ACT Labor: This program is captioned live. A principal has been questioned over photographer Bill Henson's visit to her school to scout for child models. Sue Knight will stay in the job as the Education Department investigates whether she broke the rules. Under investigation by the Education Department and under instruction to say little on her first day at her new school, I am acting on advice from the department. Sue Knight refusing to be drawn on claims she allowed controversial photographer Bill Henson to scout for child models while she was principal at St Kilda Park Primary School 15 months ago.

That's something the investigation will pursue and uncover and it's just inappropriate for me to comment on that at this stage.

Henson's art has drwan widespread criticism -

how he found his subjects is now also causing division. That's terrible. That's shocking. Does it bother you to know that? Of course it does.

She's an absolutely fantastic principal and the press is just beating it up. Support as well from parents at St Kilda Park. Sue Knight was a fantastic principal. That's all I want to say. Sue is a professional - she would have been following the guidelines. But the government concerned enough to investigate her actions. I would be concerned that people were coming into the school to view my children without my permission. Despite the ongoing controversy, the Department of Education won't give any indication on how long their investigation will take and Sue Knight will remain the acting principal at Coburg West Primary until it's finished. If she's found to have breached protocol, she could face sanctions ranging from a written warning to dismissal. Andrew Leahy, Ten News. Jetstar is under fire for the way it handled a major computer meltdown at airports around the country. 12 flights were cancelled and 1,500 passengers delayed up to 24 hours. Many claim they were left in the dark during their ordeal. Jetstar passengers in a holding pattern - they were expecting to take flights yesterday afternoon, but a major computer glitch put an end to their plans. They're not really saying what the problem is. They're just saying they've had some complications. That complication - a power surge in a Telstra exchange which took down the airline's computer check-in system across the country. Staff had to check people manually, forcing the cancellation of 12 flights. But angry passengers say they were given no notice and few options on other flights. They've previously called us before and cancelled our flight two weeks ago for the 7:15 one and put us on a later one, so that's twice we've been cancelled now. My partner works in Brisbane so he has to leave at 5:00 in the morning, and we've got the trouble of trying to get someone to look after the kids for us. It's just so disappointing the way they've treated us - like garbage. The airline says a long weekend in NSW and school holidays added to their difficulties. I think in any circumstance like this, that has come out of nowhere, it's difficult for everybody. The impact of the cancellations was being felt even today. So full were Jetstar's flights today it was forced to transfer inconvenienced passengers to other carriers - Qantas and Virgin Blue. Stranded passengers were put up in hotels. But for a frustrated Fran Moore and daughter Imogen, a 24-hour delay meant a missed day of work, school and birthday plans. She's criticised the airline's procedures. Whoever clawed their way to the front first

got the best service. There was no structure, there was no plan,

Appalling. While technicians have repaired the fault, the airline says it's reviewing the incident. Eddy Meyer, Ten News. Dozens of people are facing drugs charges after a police blitz on the Parklife music festival at Moore Park on the weekend. Officers flooded the event, using drug dogs to home in on revellers who'd gone to lengths to hide their drugs. Three men were arrested and charged while 22 others were give court attendance notices. 47 people were kicked out of the festival and several unclaimed drug stashes were found.

A possible new lead is being followed in the hunt for a missing Australian backpacker. An anonymous tip-off suggests a woman tried to post an Australian passport on the day Britt Lapthorne disappeared. Dale Lapthorne flew to Dubrovnik looking for answers into his daughter's disappearance, an anonymous caller revealing information about a passport and the hostel Britt Lapthorne had been staying at.

A woman identified as the hostel owner's mother trying to post an Australian passport. The son of the hostel's owners has already been questioned by Croatian police. He's created a stir, reportedly suggesting Britt was promiscuous, a claim denied by the Melbourne woman's family. The 21-year-old was last seen leaving a nightclub almost three weeks ago. he think it's suspicious all her friends have left. Those people must know something. The young backpacker's boyfriend is also in Dubrovnik helping in the search. We were talking about marriage and that sort of thing. Back in Australia, Britt's mother is manning the phones, her daughter's postcards deeply treasured. "Having an absolute ball. "I just can't believe time is going so quickly." Elke Lapthorne feels abandoned by Canberra. It's ripping out my soul, you know? A frantic mum conceding the best-case scenario is her daughter's been abducted. If that is the case, I don't know how our lives will continue. Please, just let our daughter go, please.

Allan Raskall, Ten News. The stock market fell to its lowest close since 2005 today.

New Governor-General Quentin Bryce is being hailed as a drought breaker after her tour of the Murray-Darling was curtailed by torrential rain. Ms Bryce was forced to cancel a visit to drought-stricken farms when roads were made impassable by three inches of rain. Instead, she toured buildings damaged by the storm which swept through Bourke, in the far west of New South Wales, just hours after she arrived. The rains have saved the region's wheat crop and locals are now hailing the Governor-General as a lucky charm. The race for the White House is turning nasty, with vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin accused of a low-blow attack on Barack Obama. But the Obama camp has quickly hit back. On the campaign trail, Barack Obama was forced to address

what he calls a new tactic of McCain smears

meant to distract voters from the real issues. His campaign has announced that they plan to, and I quote,

"Turn the page on the discussion about our economy" and spend the final weeks of this campaign launching swift boat-style attacks on me. The Democrats say Sarah Palin's claim that Obama supports terrorism is a gross distortion. It centres on Obama's links to '60s radical Bill Ayers, a founder of the violent Weather Underground. Our opponent is someone who sees America as imperfect enough to pal around with terrorists who targeted their own country. The 'New York Times' reports Ayers, now a professor, was an early Obama supporter.

Obama is blaming John McCain. That's what you do when you're out of touch,

out of ideas and running out of time. While McCain prepares for the final presidential debate, Palin's debating performance is being picked up by comedians. We don't know if this climate change whosie-whatsit is man-made or if it's just a natural part of the end of days. And entering the campaign, the 'Boss', Bruce Springsteen, supporting Obama in Ohio.

Residents heard gunshots and saw the victim walking covered in blood before his body was found in the middle of a street. A doctor has been accused of sadistically abusing female patients at Lismore Hospital. Roman Hasil has been found living in a homeless centre in Surry Hills. He faces 10 official complaints relating to medical negligence and sexual assault. And the Manly Sea Eagles party hard following their stunning win over the Melbourne Storm. A parade is being planned through their local streets to celebrate the achievement. Bookies are smiling after seeing massive increases in betting on both the NRL and AFL grand finals.

But there are fears some punters are incurring serious losses when they can least afford to. The NRL premiership was not the only prize on offer this weekend - bookies smacking their hands with glee at record turnovers. $7 million exchanged hands as punters tried to predict the outcome. 40-0 - couldn't find anyone in the land who nailed that one. Picking the winning team proved a little easier, most backing Manly even if they were from Melbourne. There were some massive wagers on Manly. Punters thought Manly got out at $1.70 to $1.85, and that was the time to strike and play it in the end and they cashed up big time. Just spare change compared to the AFL Grand Final - it attracted $10 million, up 18% on last year. Quite often surprised by the volumes and size of the bets -

we get bets $50,000, $100,000, even $200,000 - even $250,000 going head to head. The surge in interest in gambling has caught many by surprise, coming in the midst of financial turmoil. Betting agencies say that's partly due to the strength of the finalists, but it also shows a growing preference for betting to make a buck, something even the newspapers are capitalising on. Betting on interest rates is proving to be the popular new category for bookies, with more than $100,000 riding on tomorrow's announcement by the Reserve Bank. They're paying $3.50 for a 0.25% drop or $1.22 for 0.5%, and $13 if interest rates remain unchanged. That's got crisis groups worried. People have this false hope

that that last $50 - even though they know that's all there is until next pay day - will double itself, and it very rarely does. Amber Muir, Ten News. Prawns and fish might become luxury items because of climate change. A comprehensive new study shows how changing water temperatures will take a toll on seafood stocks. Back when Paul Hogan was promoting Australia, climate change wasn't an everyday topic. I'll slip an extra shrimp on the barbie. But, like the ads, Australian seafood stocks could disappear in coming decades, according to a new CSIRO study on global warming. What the report shows us is that climate change has the potential to impact on Australian fishing industries and on our aquaculture industries. Changes in temperature, ocean currents and more extreme weather events, the report warns, are likely to affect fish supplies nationwide. Warming southern seas by 2 degrees will hit rock lobster and Tasmanian salmon supplies. In northern Australia, changing rainfall patterns will impact prawn and barramundi stocks. The fishery industry is worth $2 billion to the Australian economy each year and, as it suffers, so too do the seaside communities which rely on it. The concern for consumers - less stock means higher seafood prices.

We've got tigers going out the door at $24.99 - large tiger prawns.

While the fish report deals with future climate impacts, Europe is feeling the change now. Its largest glacier, in Iceland, is melting at a rate of 1m a year. The glacier ice will melt, the water that runs off will go to the sea, the sea level will rise, and will rise to about 7m. Which scientists believe will have a catastrophic impact on low-lying areas.

Angelina Jolie has made a stylish return to the red carpet just three months after the birth of her twins. of the actress, Photographers couldn't get enough who was eager to get back to work. It was nothing short of pandemonium at the New York Film Festival as Brad and Angelina made their first red-carpet appearance since the birth of Vivienne and Knox in July. And in true Hollywood style, the new mummy was yummy - baby weight all gone.

You know, genetics. Certain people are different in their shape. But I'm breastfeeding and I think that's how your body naturally responds to the way it used to be. But she did have some new ink - two new tattoos showing the map coordinates where the twins were born - something she's done for each of her children. The babies are good, getting big and healthy and developing their personalities. The red carpet walk was for her new movie, 'Changeling', based on the true story was kidnapped in Los Angeles in 1928. of a young mother whose son Why are you doing this, Mrs Collins? You have stopped looking for my son! Why should we be looking for someone we've already found? As a mom it just made me hold on to my kids that much tighter at the end of every night and love them and be so grateful that I know where they are and that they're healthy. Some critics are suggesting Angelina will score another Oscar nomination for the film, but director Clint Eastwood has even higher accolades in mind for his leading lady. If I run for office, she'll be my VP. 'Changeling' opens here in January. Angela Bishop, Ten News. Sport now with Brad, and the new NRL premiers demand greater representation in the Australian team.

Celebrations are continuing on the Northern Beaches after Manly ended a 12-year premiership drought by thrashing Melbourne in the Grand Final. After largely being snubbed by rep selectors this year, they now want recognition. These are the guys who rewrote the record books. After turning heads last night, they were just as mesmerising today. Now grand final glory should translate into Test jerseys. That's what usually happens and we've had guys on the fringe of the Australian team so it would be great to see a handful of Manly guys in there. I think there'll be a few more this year. They've obviously proved a point and hopefully there's a lot in there.

Kite was the only Eagle to make the Test side last May. The Kangaroos World Cup squad is named tomorrow and few could argue Manly's claims - 40-point winners in a grand final. COMMENTATOR: He puts on a moment of magic and it goes to Bell! Brilliant attack and brick-wall defence buried Melbourne's back-to-back dream in the most emphatic manner. Hasn't really sunk in yet, but I've got a ring on my finger. Yeah! I'm a pretty happy man. Although we've been chanting "40-0" all night it still hasn't helped it to sink in. It was only 8-0 at half-time, but after the second of three tries to Michael Robertson the Eagles were on their way. Robertson! Robertson has scored!

The second stanza reaped six tries, and none more popular than this. Steve Menzies has scored! A fitting farewell for Menzies, and he was just as popular today too. MAN: Go, Beaver! Only one Beaver! But he might play for Manly one more time, in next year's World Club Challenge against Leeds. I'll be under contract with Bradford so I'll have a chat to the coach and them over there and see if it fits in and see how I'm feeling. Melbourne weren't feeling too flash - it's the heaviest grand final defeat in history, just the way Manly likes it. I think there'll be a little bit of partying to go yet. I'd say we'll be sticking together

and having a few beers for the next couple of days. Adam Hawse, Ten News. Troy Bayliss will retire as the world Superbike world champion. The 39-year-old last night captured his third world crown in France, wrapping up a memorable 24 hours for 2-wheeled Australians. It was a Sunday to savour for Aussies on bikes, from the Island with Casey Stoner all the way to France, where again the flag was flying high. In his farewell season in the sport, Troy Bayliss didn't win, but he didn't have to. A third placing was good enough to secure his third world crown. COMMENTATOR: Haga takes the victory, but here at Magny-Cours in France, this man is crowned world champion! With the championship wrapped up,

Bayliss then blitzed the field in race two, the victory his 50th in the sport. Victory is his. What a way to finish his career in France.

Countryman Andrew Pitt claimed the win in the Supersport class his second world championship. To four wheels, in horrific conditions last night. Debuting brand-new, identical Ferrari machines, most were trashed. Lebanon has hit China on the main straight and it's taken both cars out. France took the win. Australia's John Martin finished fourth. But no-one does stacks like the Yanks. On the high-speed Talladega Superspeedway,

it was demolition derby NASCAR-style. This wreck claimed nine cars. The big one took out 12. Tim Hodges, Ten News. The Newcastle Jets have blown a golden opportunity to win just their second match of the A-League season. A 90th-minute penalty to Wellington saw the match finish in a 2-2 draw. Shane Smeltz gave the Phoenix the lead from the penalty spot before Tarek Elrich spectacularly equalised for the home side. COMMENTATOR: He goes for goal! Newcastle then went ahead through Kaz Patafta and were on course for victory before Matt Thompson brought down Leilei Gao, allowing Smeltz to secure a point with his second penalty of the game. Newly promoted Hull City has moved into third spot on the Premier League ladder, with a 1-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur. It gives bottom-placed Spurs their worst start to a season in 96 years.

It came after just nine minutes and, like the strike, rocketed Hull into third spot. COMMENTATOR: Here's Giovanni. What a goal! What a fantastic goal from Giovanni!
