from one of the most beautiful

vantage points. I feel like I am on

an episode of Fear Factor. I just

did the Discovery Climb. For someone

scared of heights it was amazing.

This is exhilarating. I will be

conquering my fear because I will be

up here for the next three hours with the weather. Overnight showers and storms in Queensland and New South Wales should ease and head east.

Flood warnings have been issued for

the hinterland from Rockhampton to the hinterland from Rockhampton to the Gold Coast. Elsewhere, a front sweeping through the Bight will trigger showers and storms over WA and the western parts of South Australia. And warm northerly winds will keep temperatures up throughout Victoria.

Morning rain, then showers for Brisbane. In Sydney, rain easing to a shower or two. A sunny day for Melbourne. Fine in Adelaide. Partly cloudy for Perth today. Showers and thunderstorms for Canberra. A dry day in Hobart. Afternoon showers or storms in Darwin.

I have to say it was pouring with

rain last night in Sydney. We nearly

didn't come up. The rain has eased.

We have a bit of mist over the city

and it is not too bad. See you in

half an hour. It was worth the

climb. That is a real first-hand

look at the

look at the weather. Three hours up look at the weather. Three hours up there, yeah. On the way - the woman who wants the law changed so she can find her father. And why more and more of us believe in ghosts and astrology. Straight ahead, though - celebrations in the hometown of the American ship captain rescued from pirates.

SONG: # Just be happy # Na, na, na, na, na! # The Dow Jones has ended trading down 25 points after being up earlier in the night. Last week saw a powerful rally on Wall Street. Traders have been trying to hold on to those gains overnight. To find out how long this will last, let's go to Craig James at CommSec. Craig, will this continue through the week?

Certainly today it looks pretty good

for our markets. The Dow Jones had a

good rally on Friday because Wells

Fargo preannounced its earnings and

the Dow Jones shot up 246 points. It

gave back only 25 points but that is

good for our market today. The

future gains is 60 points but it

could be higher to 80 or 90 points,

getting up 3% or 4%

getting up 3% or 4%. The reason why

- Chinese production. China is

important to Australia and its

production soared and that is good

for the mining companies. Over the

for the mining companies. Over the

rest of the week what we have to

wave out for - the US banks. We have

J. Morgue on and if they come out

with numbers like last week it

should be a very, very good week. A

very, very good week. You sound

positive. Yes, Easter week was good

to me. We really did have good news

on the market last week and it

should be on here this week. Thank

you, Craig. I love the positivity. Now to the end of that hostage stand-off with Somali pirates. American captain Richard Phillips is now safe on a US Navy ship. And in his hometown in the US state of Vermont, they're celebrating his release. Reporter Michelle Franzen is there. It only took three quick shots for Navy snipers to end a high-seas stand-off. Thanks, guys. Thank you very much. Captain Richard Phillips had been held hostage by pirates

in a lifeboat drifting off the coast of Somalia. Phillips had sacrificed his freedom for that of his crew's when pirates attacked his cargo ship last Wednesday. As talks for his release broke down last night, Navy SEALs saw a chance to end the stand-off and took it. Under the cover of darkness, from 30 yards away in rough seas, the SEALs acted, killing all three pirates simultaneously. The crew of Phillips' ship, the Maersk 'Alabama', now safely docked in Kenya, spoke to their captain by phone. Everybody you see here before you today has the captain, Captain Phillips to thank for their lives and their freedom. While thousands of miles away in rural Vermont, relief, knowing that their hometown son was now safe. They're very happy about Richard.

They're also very happy it's a happy ending for everybody involved. Despite his ordeal, Phillips is said to be in remarkably good condition after a brief medical check-up by the Navy. Phillips will be reunited with his crew and then his family.

Do you reckon that pilot would be on

the phone thanks so much. You took

the phone thanks so much. You took all the media pressure off me. That

guy is a hero. He sacrificed himself

for his crew. That is amazing. And

what a story to tell. I wonder who

will get it. Still to come - Mel Gibson's wife files for divorce after 28 years of marriage. And Madonna's former nanny reveals what life was like with the pop star. Straight ahead, though - the computer giant that can't afford tea or coffee for the office. And how Matt Shirvington inspired the winner of Australia's richest foot race.

We had no idea. We have three hot

chicks for you. Kochie, you are a

legend. He is coming back tomorrow.

No, stay where you are. A little bit

hot. What's making the papers, Nat?

Mel and Matt, a 9-year-old girl has told how two men tried to abduct and rape her. The girl was riding her bike on the Central Coast north of Sydney about 3pm on Easter Sunday. A van pulled up, a man got out and told her to get in. She fled for home but had to fight off her attacker first.

She was just going for a bike ride

on her own street. Melbourne's 'Herald Sun' front page says "Daylight Thuggery". Nightclub revellers have been caught on video bashing each other

at 9:30am on a city street. 'The Australian' reports IBM can't afford tea or coffee for its offices. The computer giant has told staff they will have to buy drinks from vending machines. And 'The Age' has a great story about the winner of Australia's richest foot race, the Stawell Gift. The 18-year-old winner ran the race in 6-year-old shoes that didn't fit him. Aaron Stubbs was given the shoes by Matt Shirvington in 2003. Aaron kept the shoes in a ziplock bag and didn't use them until yesterday. It got us thinking about gifts from celebrities and hand-me-downs in general. What's the best thing you've ever been given?

Beretts, these were from 2003 when

Shirvo was the first Australian to

beat an American on Australian soil.

These are magic running shoes. If

you want to run quickly, get these

shoes. You can put these shoes on

and they were good. He didn't want

to give them to him because they

were too smelly but eventually put

them in the post. They didn't fit.

Shir vo is quoted in the paper

saying this is what could happen years later. Finally, the Hobart 'Mercury' says a British adventurer has stopped trying to row around the world. Oliver Hicks left Tasmania in January and has found the going tougher than expected. He's been at sea for 83 days at sea without reaching New Zealand.

Let's check the leaderboard.

That can't be right We are crashing

around and help you out. Look where

my friend is. She will be back when

you are winning. The fate of Collingwood's Heath Shaw will be decided at tonight's AFL Tribunal.

It's likely he'll face time on the bench after pushing an umpire. joins us now. Footy legend Nathan Buckley joins us now.

How do you think Heath Shaw will go

tonight? We saw Brett Kirk referred

to the tribunal last week

to the tribunal last week and we got another one coming up in the next

few days. Are the players getting

the message that this isa no-go? If

they don't, you just don't want to

take a risk with it. Luke Hodge put

his arm around an umpire when

discussing a decision. I haven't

seen an umpire change his mind when

he has made a decision. The tribunal

are very keen to pass this message

down. A lot of coaches say "

down. A lot of coaches say "We don't

know where the line is or if you

touch an umpire.

touch an umpire." But you can't go

anywhere them at all. This is

different. If they are moving around

and there is a little bit of

contact, that is a bit of a grey

area. There needs to be a bit of

common sense to be looked at. This

is different. It was Heath is different. It was Heath Shaw

putting his hand on the umpire's

arm. As I said, you don't want to

take those matters out of your

control and put it into the AFL's

because they are militant about it.

I don't think there was anything

malicious about the intent but we

will see how the tribunal views it. Richmond are winless for the season after losing to the Doggies yesterday.

How much pressure is on coach Terry Wallace to keep his job?

A fair bit. 0-3. There was a lot of

focus off the round 1 loss to

Carlton. When a side is not going

well, a club gets separated and the

individuals and everyone within it

individuals and everyone within it gets challenged and speculated upon.

Generally all the pressure goes on

the coach and that is what he is

enduring at the moment. Bucks, will

he see out the season? By the media

press and the focus, I don't think

he can. This game against Melbourne

will be an interesting situation. If

they lose this week, it could happen

as soon as the day after, a couple

of weeks. To come into a season with

a coach, I don't see the benefit in

changing him mid-stream. You got to

see what is working ground level and

look into the future and make a

decision further down the track.

Nathan Buckley, good to talk to you. Have a good day. Beretts, Round 5 of the NRL has wrapped up with the Bulldogs beating the Rabbitohs.

The Dogs made Souths their Easter 'Bunnies', taking the game 14-12.

The score line didn't reflect this

match. The Bunnies got off to a good

start. Tough conditions - heavy

rain. The Bunnies are 3-2. They are

going along fine. They are the big

improvers. They now got four wins

for the season. Don't be

disheartened. They are going fine.

And how about Lleyton Hewitt getting

that win on the clay court. This was important too. The guy who was playing here, the American, Osneack, because we don't know his name, he is a quality player. It is a really

good sign. He is on 499 wins. The only players who have 500 wins are Federer and Moya. It puts perspective Lleyton's career and how good he has been in. Keep an eye on

him. him. The bookies didn't like it for the French Open. It is good to see Lleyton back in the winners circle. Underdog status is good for sport and maybe that is what he needs to spur him on.

even among family. The study says teens who drink have a significantly higher risk of developing alcohol abuse or risky sexual behaviour later in life. So we're asking you about when you had your first drink.

That is early days but I get the

Your sneak peak is coming up next hour on Sunrise.

As much as I love what I do... ..I never want to lose sight of what's really important. So when there's a chance for all of us to catch up, I don't need a headache bringing me down. That's why I keep Panadol Rapid handy. It's absorbed 2 times faster than regular Panadol tablets. Because I'd rather spend time with friends than with a headache. Panadol - it's my choice. Draw the blinds, please. Take a look at this. MAN: Specsavers are explaining their prices openly. They are. They've got this three-step thing. Look. First, pick a frame, add lenses, then add extras. Note how Pentax lenses are included. And they're selling complete glasses at $59. Great! We're not here to applaud them, Jones. Where did you get your glasses, by the way? WOMAN: They really suit him.

When pain strikes, Panadol Rapid gets to work fast. In fact, it's absorbed 2 times faster than regular Panadol tablets.

Now fast pain relief is in the bag.

Turning deadly -

two people die in protests in Thailand. Dozens more have been injured. Shortly on Sunrise, reports from Bangkok and advice for the thousands of Aussies there.

Also, Mel Gibson's wife files for divorce. Madonna's Aussie nanny talks about life with the Material Girl. Obviously, from being inside the bubble, you know the truth. And Will Ferrell's monster comedy role. 'LAND OF THE LOST': He's right behind me, isn't he?

I knew it. Your sneak peek at 'Land of the Lost' is coming up on this Tuesday edition of Sunrise.

# Reach up for the sunrise... # VOICEOVER: Sunrise continues with Matt and Mel. Hello and thanks for joining us. Matt's in for Kochie again today. And right now, Nat has the news. Good morning. Thousands of Thai troops have stormed the capital

as anti-government protests escalate. Authorities say at least two people have been killed

and more than a hundred injured during the protests. Troops have fired warning shots and hurled tear gas at the demonstrators to try to restore order. (GUNFIRE) The protesters are demanding Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva step down. A teenager has died after her car was swept away in flash flooding in western New South Wales. The 19-year-old's car was pushed off a causeway near Gundagai last night. A 22-year-old passenger managed to escape but the girl's body was found in the car. Queensland is on flood watch this morning after Sunshine Coast towns were swamped by up to 180mm of rain in just a few hours. The State Emergency Service received about 70 calls for help last night with the towns of Kin Kin, Pomona and Cooran cut off by rising waters. About a dozen drivers were rescued after trying to cross flooded waters. Homes and shops have been inundated.

Virgin Blue has promised a group of New South Wales primary school students stranded at the airport last night they will get to London soon. The boys and girls had spent two years raising $30,000 to travel from their tiny town of Gerogery to England

for a week at a sister school. But their Virgin Blue flight to Sydney was two hours late and their international flight on Virgin Atlantic took off without them. I'm feeling disappointed for the kids at the moment, yeah, so we got fingers cross. The next flight to London on Thursday is almost full. But Virgin has promised it will fly the group to Hong Kong today and book them on the first possible flight to their final destination. Barack Obama has praised rescuers who saved a cargo ship captain from Somali pirates

and vowed to end piracy in the high seas. Captain Richard Phillips was dramatically freed by the US Navy who shot dead his captors yesterday. President Obama has praised the US military and says he's all too aware of the increasing threat. We're going to continue to work with our partners to prevent future attacks, we have to continue to be prepared to confront them when they arise

and we have to ensure that those who commit acts of piracy

are held accountable for their crimes. Somali pirates are still holding scores of hostages off the African coast. Hundreds of canoeists spent their Easter Weekend battling it out in one of the sport's toughest races. Now in its seventh decade, the race sees paddlers travel more than 200km

from England's west to the heart of London. Despite a huge turn-out, the race record of 15 hours and 34 minutes couldn't be broken. In finance news: The Dow closed 25 points weaker.

Time for sport now, here's Beretts explaining why we went down in the cricket. Half centuries from three players hasn't been enough to save Australia from South Africa in the one-day series. Chasing 318 for victory, Ricky Ponting, Brad Haddin and Michael Clarke all posted half centuries. But their effort wasn't enough to stem the Proteas bowling attack. The visitors fell 61 runs short.

Dale Steyn doing some serious damage, taking four wickets. Herschelle Gibbs laid the perfect platform for the homeside, scoring an impressive 110 with the bat. Casey Stoner says he's feeling stronger than ever after taking out the opening round of the MotoGP series in Qatar. Stoner led from the start and eventually eased home on his Ducati ahead of 2008 reigning champion Valentino Rossi of Italy.

It's the third time the Aussie has taken out the Qatar Grand Prix. The Bulldogs Michael Ennis has thrust himself into contention for the New South Wales head of game one in Melbourne on June 3. Innis starred in last night's 14-12 win over Souths. He set up two tries

and kicked a crucial goal from 38m out. Meantime, the Bunnies Isaac Luke has been placed on report for instigating a fight after the Bulldogs scored their second try.

Collingwood faces an anxious wait

with two players facing likely suspensions from the AFL tribunal. Heath Shaw is the more serious of the two. His matter has been referred straight to the tribunal after he was charged with deliberately making contact with an umpire. Maxwell faces a rough conduct charge and has been offered a 2-game suspension.

Hawthorn's Campbell Brown is in a similar situation - he's charged over a high bump on Daniel Wells. Port Adelaide pair Peter Burgoyne and skipper Domenic Cassisi also face time on the sideline. Burgoyne for kneeing, Cassisi for striking.

Probably a good week for Kochie to

be away because he won't be happy with his

with his two players at the

tribunal. And Jennifer Hawkins

coming in tomorrow. I haven't forgotten. Coming up - why teenagers' live their lives on the net. But now Fifi has the weather from the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

It is mazing. The fog is lifting. As

I predicted. The first time the fog is doing what I

is doing what I told. The Queensland

coast on flood alert. We will have

A sunny day for Melbourne. Fine in Adelaide. Partly cloudy for Perth today. Showers and thunderstorms for Canberra.

A dry day in Hobart. Afternoon showers or storms in Darwin.

Kin Kin and Pomona and

Kin Kin and Pomona and Cooran and

Jessica has more. This is up to what Kin Kin and Pomona and Cooran and Jessica has more. This is up to what

108mm of rain looks like. In two

hours it was up to the driveway,

yeah, pretty bad. They weren't alone as the Cooroy Creek overflowed, flooding the Bruce Highway. Half a dozen drivers needed rescuing from the sudden downpour.

It came up to about my ankles and when I got out the car, it was to above my knees. Floyd and Dennis made it out too. Their precious cargo didn't. There's probably $30,000, $40,000 worth of guitars and amps out there and all of a sudden we were coming through

and it was just a torrent of water. SES volunteers received 70 calls for help before their local headquarters was drenched too. Residents in Pomona were left stranded, ankle-deep in water.

The water just come in straight underneath the house there and picked up all the wheelie bins and pushed them all down the road. A half dozen sandbags weren't nearly enough to keep Graham Ryan dry. The kitchen and bedrooms were flooded. But never fear - the beloved Harley's OK. Be better with more sandbags, mate but we'll be right. Dozens of roads are still closed this morning. So much for this British backpacker's sun-drenched Aussie road trip. It's not quite what I expected but I'm sure it'll improve in the next few days or next week or so. Not likely. The Weather Bureau says the sun will make just a brief appearance Thursday. Otherwise, Queenslanders should keep those umbrellas handy. Maybe a few sandbags too.

More weather in half an hour. Back

to you, Mel and Matt. Thank you,

clearing up nicely for you there.

You cut a fine figure in the grey

jumpsuit. I like this look. See you

in half an hour. Now back to Bangkok where thousands of Thai troops have stormed the capital as anti-government protests escalate.

Authorities say at least two people have been killed and more than 100 injured during the riots. The troops and police are using automatic weapons and tear gas to force the protestors to retreat. But the Red Shirts, as they're called, have vowed to keep it up until Thailand's Prime Minister resigns. Neil Connery reports.

From the streets of Bangkok Thai

troops move in. on a group of anti-Government demonstrators. As these protests enter their third day,

the situation in the Thai capital continues to deteriorate. These troops are trying to prevent more buses being hijacked and set alight by the protesters.

On this occasion, they are successful. But elsewhere, their attempts to control the streets are thwarted as demonstrators are eventually able to commandeer this bus. Thousands of protesters wearing red shirts to show their opposition to the Government have vowed to stay on the streets

until the Thai Prime Minister resigns.

As tension rise, the Army has warned protesters they will use weapons to defend themselves

as they try to bring the situation under control.

The protesters went crazy and went

nuts. Saw a few people were injured.

This woman was shot and rushed away

for treatment as the disorder and

chaos showed no sign of abating. The protesters are supporters

of former prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra who was deposed in a coup three years ago and lives in self-imposed exile abroad. He's called for a revolution. We want to see the democracy for all. That's the reason why the people, they are now gathering. They want to...

..they just come with bare hand and they want to...

..they want to ask for democracy peacefully. The next 24 hours could see a final showdown

between demonstrators and troops. chaos showed no sign of abating. The protest Neil Connery reporting. Our Federal Government estimate up to 55,000 Australians are working or holidaying in Thailand. There is a number to call if you want more information and travel advice.

That is 24-assistance. Extraordinary

images. It makes you wonder when it

will end. In 2006, seven teenage boys filmed and then sold DVDs of themselves sexually assaulting a 17-year-old woman beside the Werribee River. Now one of the ringleaders has released a disturbing hate-filled rap about the incident on the internet. The 19-year-old boasts his attack video was viewed "more than the 10:00 news". So this got us thinking - why are kids so keen to let the whole world witness the good and bad of their lives, on the net? Child psychologist Michael Carr-Gregg joins us.

This is becoming such an obsession

for so many. Why? Where is it coming

from? The internet

from? The internet is unique for

adolescents and it allows them to

try on one digital mask after

another to find one that fits. It

allows them unprecedented access to

their peers and at no other time in

your life is the connection with

your friends so strong. Young people

always embraced technology and this

is a generation that was born with a

mouse in their hands. This the easy

way to have your 15 seconds of fame

or however long you want it? They

or however long you want it? They use the term

use the term surfwebelity. Most

using it for social networking and

MySpace and Facebook and that is

probably a lot less harmless to the

rest of us. We don't want to talk

about the worldwide web as a bad

thick. There are bad things posted online but there

online but there are good things

posted online such as Reach Out

Central. How important is it to - to

remember both sides It is an

interactive web game that teaches

Australia wouldn't have access to

Australia wouldn't have access to these things so there is a positive

to the web. We will put more

information of those online sites on

our website for the kids. Thank you, Michael. Now little this morning, we'll take a closer look at a new report,

which says there's no safe level of drinking for kids under 18, even among family. The study says teens who drink have a significantly higher risk of developing alcohol abuse, or risky sexual behaviour later in life.

Let us know as we do a study when

the first alcoholic drink was

the first alcoholic drink was consumed. The first sip of beer was

when I as 12 and now I don't drink

at all. It is selly disturbing but

then it is OK. My grandfather put

beer in my dummy when I was three

years old. A lot of guys do it as a

bit of a joke but then went further.

I got a full stubbie holder with my

name on it at 10 and had my first

hangover at 12. I now work in the

industry and see the abuse. I now

understand the abuse of alcohol.

Like France we should introduce

alcohol gradually, wine and then

beer and then spirits. I don't know

if that would solve the problem. Let us know. A young Melbourne woman is leading a campaign to change fertility laws so she can find her biological father. 25-year-old Lauren Burns found out just a few years ago that she was conceived through sperm donation. Victorian laws allowing donors and their offspring to find out information about each other were introduced after she was born. That means she may never find out her true origin. Lauren, thanks for your time. Why do you want to track down your biological father?

I think it comes down to the

significance of the biological link

and the importance of the truth. I

think most viewers would be able to

appreciate the significance of the

biological link for those that can

recall the feeling of the birth of

their children or for those whoever

traced their family tree why it is

so important to ask as a society.

Basically, I am

Basically, I am here today because I

am representing a group of

Victorians who have fallen through

the cracks of the legislation and we

have been let down by the

legislation that was supposed to

protect our rights. Last year the

Government passed a law that

contained several principles and

children born from procedures like

that that our rights are paramount.

In theory, my rights should be

paramount and I had the right to

know my genetic identity.

know my genetic identity. I don't

know my true identity. This law

contains the clause and it creates a

certain stigma. If a person wants to

do something against the law there

is an implication that they want to doing is an implication that they want to

do something bad or wrong. In my

case, I just want to know the identity

identity of my biological father. I

think people can relate to that. And

things like medical history you

would want to know. I know you have

done a bit of digging. How much

information do you know about your

biological father? The information I

have is very limited. I have a brief

description along the lines of hair

colour and eye colour.

colour and eye colour. I also have

been told I have three half

siblings, two brothers and a sister

and I would be keen to more about

them. I never had a brother so I

would like to know something simple

what a boy version of me might look

like. Lauren, obviously for a man to

be a sperm donor he knows the out

come that

be a sperm donor he knows the out come that one day his sperm will

produce a child. How would you feel

if the laws were changed and the man

who was your biological father who was your biological father says " who was your biological father says

"No, I want to remain anonymous. "No, I want to remain anonymous." Is

that something you prepare yourself

for? It is something that is a possibility. I discussed

possibility. I discussed this issue

with a counsellor whose job is to

link up with past donors. In her

experience, the vast majority of men

understand the significance of

creating a child and the vast

majority will provide detailed

information and also happy to

provide contact such as meeting or things

things like that. Lauren, we will

stay in touch with you and see how

it goes and good luck. You really

have thought about it a lot and good

on you. We will check in again. Can

I just add that there is a possible

way forward out of this situation in

that last year the Government did

promise to refer these issues to the

law reform committee of the

Parliament. That was a promise that

was made to us. Unfortunately to

date that hasn't occurred and it

rests with Rob Hull. On behalf of

myself and other people in this

situation, these issues are

important and it is important that

they are examined and we find a way

forward in this forward in this unfortunate

situation. We will put it on

situation. We will put it on the R.O.S. Wall and we will make some

phone calls and stay in touch. Thank

you. We will make a call and see where it is at. Ahead on the show - Madonna's nanny speaks about life with the singer. Also, the time-twisting comedy from Will Ferrell.

a quick chat with the world's fastest talking woman. And soon - the new film from the star of 'My Big Fat Greek Wedding'.

That's at 7:50. But now, it's over to Nat for a news update. Good morning. Legendary music producer Phil Spector has just been found guilty of shooting dead actress Lana Clarkson after a 5-year trial that's fascinated the American public. Spector faces up to 18 years in prison after a Los Angeles jury took four days to reach a verdict,

finding him guilty of second-degree murder. The 69-year-old always claimed Clarkson shot herself. And Nelson will have more on this breaking story at 7:50. Good morning. At least two protesters have been killed as violence continues to spiral out of control in Thailand.

Troops have stormed the capital Bangkok

as they attempt to restore order after three days of political unrest.

Protesters are demanding ousted prime minister Thaksin Shinawatra returns to power. They want to ask for democracy peacefully but I don't know it end up in this way. Bangkok's main emergency service says at least 113 people have been injured in the clashes.

A woman has died in flash flooding in central west New South Wales,

taking the national Easter road toll to 15. The 19-year-old's car was swept off a causeway near Cootamundra last night just hours before the official holiday period ended. A 22-year-old friend managed to escape as the vehicle drifted away. The woman's the fifth victim on New South Wales roads over the long weekend.

Only South Australia and the Northern Territory were fatality-free. A girl is missing, feared drowned in flash floods along Queensland's coast. Rescuers are resuming their search for the 12-year-old this morning after she was swept off a weir at Caboolture in front of her brother and his mate.

They did see the girl go missing

and, as I say, we hold grave fears for this girl's safety. Drivers were forced to abandon their cars after the Bruce Highway was cut off by flooding on the Sunshine Coast. Shops and homes in Pomona are in ruins again. It came up quicker than last time,

just really, really quickly rose up and came in the garage and, yeah, the backyard's a swimming pool.

Up to 180mm of rain fell on some towns in just a few hours,

causing a small landslide near Black Mountain. At least 21 people have been killed after fire tore through a hostel for the homeless in Poland's north-west. The blaze broke out just after 1am local time, gutting the hostel. Many of the injured suffered broken bones as they tried to jump from the burning building. An 8-month-old baby also suffered burns.

77 people were registered as residents

and police say not everyone has been accounted for. Authorities are investigating the cause. In finance news: The Dow closed 25 points weaker.

Sport now with Beretts and Bucks speaks out on Terry Wallace.

Collingwood legend Nathan Buckley believes Richmond coach Terry Wallace could be out of a job by this time next week. Despite a strong start against the Western Bulldogs yesterday,

the Tigers suffered an embarrassing 47-point loss at Etihad Stadium. Richmond faces fellow strugglers Melbourne this weekend, Buckley says a Tigers loss could see Wallace replaced.

If they lose this week, I mean it

could happen as soon as the day. Away from the field and a big night ahead at the tribunal. Collingwood's Heath Shaw faces the most serious charge after grabbing an umpire. Australia's Casey Stoner has kicked off his 2009 campaign in style, taking out the Qatar Grand Prix. Rain delayed the start

but it failed to deter Stoner from going full throttle on his Ducati at a circuit he's mastered on two other occasions.

The new bikes a lot easier for me to

ride. It doesn't throw me around so

much. And I feel stronger now than I

was at the end of last year. South Africa has lived up to its one-day reputation

and given Australia a tough time

during game four of the current series

in Port Elizabeth. Chasing 318 to win,

the tourists were bowled out for 256. Skipper Ricky Ponting, Michael Clarke and Brad Haddin all managed half-centuries but they didn't account for Dale Steyn who took 4 wickets. Earlier, Herschelle Gibbs laid the perfect platform for the South Africans, scoring 110.

In the NRL, Souths skipper Roy Asotasi says Souths needs to focus on getting the basics right again after last night's 14-12 loss at the hands of the Bulldogs. The Bunnies had plenty of promise early, scoring in the first 90 seconds of the game. But that was where the fancy stuff ended as the Bulldogs took charge. Isaac Luke was placed on report for instigating this fight after Andrew Ryan crossed for the Bulldogs' second try.

It is exciting for Casey Stoner. He

knuckles are white as we look at the forecast. Morning rain, then showers for Brisbane

and a top of 28. Chance of a storm tomorrow before a fine Thursday. In Sydney, rain easing to a shower or two

climbers: Fantastic. Thank you,

Fifi. Make a fortune out of the

tourists. I should. See you soon Straight ahead on Sunrise - do young people really want the chance to vote. Then, the new movie with the star of 'My Big Fat Greek Wedding'. And later, we'll put the world's fastest talking woman to the test against Nat. This is Sunrise on Seven.

Tomorrow on Sunrise - the lovely Jennifer Hawkins with the new looks in lingerie. Check out the Loveable underwear range. Plus Dannii Minogue will join us

with the acts that amaze on 'Australia's Got Talent'. And Barbara Northwood cooks up a 4-course banquet on a budget. That's Wednesday on Sunrise.

I am looking forward to tomorrow.

Oh. The cooking? Of course. We have compulsory voting in Australia but that's not much use

if people aren't on the electoral roll in the first place. The new Electoral Commissioner says over a million Aussies are not on the books.

He's asking the Government to offer an internet service for the electoral roll.

That might encourage young people to put their name down and keep their address updated. But do they actually want to be able to vot
