The tragedy sparked almost six hours of heated and emotional debate in Parliament I believe that Australia has had a gutful of us fighting on this issue. They're sick of us fighting, they're sick of the politics, they're sick of hearing of more people dying. They're sick of us yelling at each other and they just want us to fix this. Today the Senate will decide whether to pass a deal which could see the Malaysia solution become a reality. My father came here as a refugee on 3 September 1948. He came from a country where there was war. He had to wait his turn, but he was desperate to come. The member for Kennedy is right. There is a great deal of hypocracy from time to time in these debates but I'll say one thing to you, I'll say it deliberately to this Parliament - I will never, ever support a people swap where you can send a 13-year-old child unaccompanied to a country without supervision. Never, it will be over my dead body. This follows the deaths of 90 asylum seekers last week. Political commentator Graham Richardson joins us now. Good morning. , No doubt emotional drawn out, Ex

supremely long discussions. It will pass the

pass the Senate., the bill that we have seen passed, it will get through the Senate? Is No chance of it going through the

Senate, no chance of that. Yesterday was 6 hours, there what's motion, there was feeling but it got nowhere. We have not advanced ourselves one inch. Right. Let me sum two up. Coalitions want Nauru for offshore processing. They don't want Malaysia because it's not signed up to the United Nations convention. Labor wants Malaysia as well as Nauru, if they give up Mal laigs, it's a loss give up Mal laigs, it's a give up Mal laigs, it's give up Mal laigs, give up Mal give up Maldonado Asian to the coalition it's a loss of face. The Greens want no offshore, is that basically it. That's pretty much it. I think the Greens are just out of this Dea bite. They won't compromise anything. They will use I think their real reason, they looked at bite. They won't compromise on

what happened to the Democrats, they gave in on the G ST, they said they will never give in, when they did gave in, their party disintegrated. The Greens are terrified that if they walk away from this, their base will walk away with them. Tony Abbott had the opportunity to go with Malaysia but the government were giving him Nauru. The were giving him Nauru. The I thought yesterday the Prime Minister should have given away on temporary protection visas. The the coalition will not give in on the Malaysia so the coalition Senators will stick and the government's bill or ox shot's bill that got passed yesterday will be knocked over we will be in exactly the same yesterday will be knocked over and position we were 24 hours ago. Where do you see what will be the chink that will give in order to get this to go through? I can't see one. I am praying for one but I can't see one at the moment. Malaysia is the sticking point. So either got got Why is jarred sticking to Malaysia. Yes, Nauru. They have signed up. Kids won't be send unaccompanied. I thought about this a lot myself. The reality when we sent anybody to Nauru, they all finished up here when I say all, that's yadge exaggeration, the vast majority, Nauru was a place you got them to out of sight, to a place, we brought them here. That didn't achieve anything? Tnchts stopped the boats. It didn't stop the boats? It did I think the temporary protection visa thing is one of the great problems. Really the fact that we don't have them has been the big change. I think Nauru will make no difference what so buffer I do think the temporary protection investigate as are an argument. You have to feature to what you've made sexy overtime. That's Malaysia and Nauru. So they are still playing politics. For negotiate all the tears and the emotion and the public is sick of it, they want us to make a decision. That's all punk. I don't think it's all bunch. I don't think that Joe's tears were fake. They were real but it doesn't change anything. By the why didn't he stand up and say let's amend why didn't he stand up and say let's change anything. By the way, I mean,

amend this so you can't send unaccompanied children then the very point he was getting emotional about has gone. Thank you, we will welcome everybody's views today. We are going to going to talk to Joe Hockey in our next half hour and we are going to speak to the Prime Minister after 7 o'clock. Thank you, Still ahead - the changes looming for petrol pricing.

After a day of emotional debate our pollies let their hair down at one of the highlights of Canberra's social calendar, the Mid Winter Ball. It was a chance for the MPs to put on their finery and mix with journalists. More than 600 people attended with great interest in the charity auction. A BBQ dinner with Tony Abbott went for $11,100. That's $1,000 more than was paid for dinner for four at The Lodge with Julia Gillard. The bid for a meal with Kevin Rudd also went for $10,100. All dinners were snapped up by a group campaigning against modern day slavery. , That's , that's usually when the big lobby groups. What a party that would have been after yesterday in parliament. How do they do that? Frosty. That's what I The asylum seeker debate is front page news. Melbourne's 'Herald Sun' says, 'The Courier Mail' says with the compromise deal set to fail in the Senate, 'The Sydney Morning Herald' sums up that hurdle, with the headline - There's controversial new advice this morning about when to introduce kids to alcohol. The nation's leading drug prevention group, the Australian Drug Foundation, now says it's OK for parents to let children drink from 15 if they're supervised. However, it does insist on zero alcohol before that. Have your say - when should parents introduce their kids to alcohol? , I thought last year or the year before, we were talking about we should wait a lot longer. So, I don't know. What does it achieve? I don't understand what it means actually achiefs? A I know a lot of culture talk about letting kids sip achiefs? A I know a lot of other wine and alcohol, but we have wine and alcohol, but we have such a problem in this country. Is the problem because we hold back, we make it so it's out of reach, So you've had three years without drinking. It's like kids who aren't normal part and you normally have one glass with dinner here and there. Like kids who aren't allowed to eat lolly, they are the ones at the party hoing down on all the lollies in the bucket. Let us know what we have said. And as we've been reporting - Sam Stosur was beaten in three sets overnight in the second round of Wimbledon. The defeat of the last remaining Aussie in the singles rounded off our worst performance in the tournament's history. We didn't even make the first weekend, Beretts, what is wrong with Aussie tennis. This is our This is our worst result of 45 years of grand slam tennis. It's been 38 years exhibits we haven't had a bloke get through the first round for starters. Just re Macable. A couple of things, Tennis Australia will couple of things, Tennis Australia will put up a defence and say we had two blokes in the top 16. Last year we had the junior boys and girls. Things aren't too bad but the results speak for themselves. It comes back to the same old things, are our young players hungry enough? We are knocking over tennis courts to build apartments, the argument is in earn block countries, kits, that's their way out. That's not affecting our rowers and our cyclists? Do woe just have to admit we can't be good at everything. Maybe a lot of those. It's ebb and flow a bit. Maybe we are in a cycle at the tempt, apart from Bernard Tomic, we haven't got the next wave of kids coming through. We are just in a bit of a slump.

All eyes will be on the upper house of Parliament today after a marathon 6-hour debate in the lower house yesterday ended with legislation being passed to allow offshore processing of asylum seekers, including in Malaysia. A bill introduced by Independent Rob Oakeshott passed the lower house after gaining the support of crossbenchers. It comes as a boat carrying 134 people capsized near Christmas island yesterday. 130 people were rescued and 1 body was recovered. It's believed three others went down with the boat. I am calling on each and every senator to accept that this is now the only bill that can pass the Parliament before the Parliament goes into the winter recess. But the bill is likely to fail - the Greens and the Opposition have already said they'll block it in the Senate. A long day of debate and a later-than-usual finish wasn't enough to stop our pollies from frocking up and enjoying a drink last night. For a good cause, of course. The Federal Parliament Press Gallery's annual Mid Winter Ball went ahead raising money for several different charities. But the asylum seeker debate was still on the minds of many. The Prime Minister knows that it won't pass the Senate, so she's voted for a stalemate. Today is the last day of Parliament before the mid-winter break.

There is a great deal of hypocrisy from time to time in these debates but I'll say one thing to you - I'll say it deliberately to this parliament - where you can send a 13-year-old child unaccompanied to a country without supervision. Never. It'll be over my dead body. Shadow Treasurer Joe Hockey joins us now. One of the things we love about him, he wears his heart on his sleeve. One of the things we love about him, he wears his heart on his sleeve.

The The parliament is failing us. I am not sure the parliament is failing us. I think the fact is you have to live by your principles and the principles we led down failing us. I think the fact is that

previously, the temporary protect Vee as, sending people to Nauru or Manos island, where possible, turning back the boats, that worked. The government changed the law. We didn't like it. Now they have got problems all over the place. We have said what worked will work again. I heard Graham Richardson say a little earlier people from Nauru overwhelmingly end up here. He is factually wrong, 30% went back to the country, 30% went to over countries and about 40% ended up here so he is wrong there. OK. But the government is all right, let's do Mal auction and all right, let's do Mal auction all right, let's do Mal all right, let's do all right, let's do Malaysia and Nauru. Why is that not a compromise OK. But the government is proposing

that you can support. Kochie, I can't support a people-swap deal with Malaysia. They are our friends diplomatly. But the reason why Malaysia is being used is because it's a very harsh and unforgiving environment for human beings. Frankly, the government deal is a bad deal. They say that we are going to send 800 refugees directly to Malaysia, that could include a 13-year-old child, a 12-year-old child, unaccompanied. In Malaysia, they get caned, they have got no passports, there is no health care or education care. Wouldn't that be a disincentive asylum seekers if they knew they were going to Malaysia and it was so Wouldn't that be a disincentive to

harsh, it wasn't the land of milk and honey that they expected to get here or Nauru that they might say " here or Nauru that they might say "well, it's not worth the risk." Well, firstly, it's Well, firstly, it's limited to 800 people. Secondly, the fact is that we have - we are human being, Kochie, at the end of the day, we are human being, what happened in Nauru, we supervised these human being, Nauru, we supervised these human being,. I mean just picture in your mind what's going on. These people are desperate to come to Australia. They will do They will do anything to come to Australia. They get on a ribbingity boat. They are drowning at sea. What you should do is take them to place, see whether they are genuine refugees and resettle them to you should do is take them to a

another country, not guaranteed Australia if they are general rin. Would it encourage them to go to a refugee camp like so many others do and go through the normal process to come here or another country that is taking refugees? Wouldn't Malaysia be a disincentive and force or make them rethink and think " them rethink and think "hey, maybe I should go through the proper channels." There will are a whole lot of countries who will be entative, Nauru was one. So the guys that are selling passage to Australia, they have got a product. The product is you get on Australian soil. That's their product. If you get Australian soil, you end up an their product. If you get on Australian citizen. What we have got to do is stop the product and the way to stop the product, is not to allow them to get to Australian soil. That's why our 3-pronged approach f they do get to Australia

soil, they are not guaranteed to become permanent citizens. When the problems in their home country are resolved, they can be sent back. Therefore, there is no product to be sold. Temporary ri protection visas, processing offshore and the third one, where porks you turn back the boats. one, where porks you turn back the one, where porks you turn back one, where porks you turn one, where porks you one, where porks one, where one, Possible, you turn back the boats. If the government had said it was just Malaysia, just Nauru, not Malaysia. We offered yesterday to agree with the government and the other parties, to increase the front door humanitarian refugee program to 20,000. We offered to set up multi party committee. We offered to have any number of countries, 148 countries that processing can occur on, but we are not going to be in a position where we would send an unaccompanied child to a third party after we had been the legal guardian of that child ease interests. I don't think any don't think any Australian would have to see that. Thank you, Joe. We will see you Here's Nat. Well, what happened to working 9-5? While that's what most people are roughly rostered to work, a new survey in the UK has found it's more like 7-7. That's because employees are mentally clocking on and checking their phone or emails before leaving home. People also struggle to switch off when they get home at night. Workplace lawyer Joe Catanzariti joins me now. Good morning to you. Joe, does this finding surprise you? , I think quite a incentive, you just

can't let go. As the neck noling gets more advanced, people are just not swaiching off. It's not good for us, what rights you have to turn that phone off at 5 It's not good for us, what rights do o'clock or 6 o'clock whenever you finish work. You've an absolute legal right. That's what you are employeded to do. If you wish to turn it off, you can but people aren't turning it off. What if the boss is giving you a hard time because you should be access able . The boss has no rights. He can't take any action against you. Why are we doing it Are we afraid of our jobs. People seem to get relaxed by knowing what their emails and dealing with work overnight, they feel better off for some strong reason. But not in the long run. Thank you for telling us our rights. Here is

No matter where you live getting in to see a doctor can be difficult. But a Victorian mother has revealed the true extent of our GP shortage. When Emily Lloyd moved to Bendigo she thought needing a personal reference to get into a clinic was a joke. But after coming down with a bad virus she discovered the rumours were true. Emily rang five clinics but none would take on new patients. The virus got progressively worse until she ended up in hospital. She then started travelling 150 kilometres just to see a family doctor. Emily joins me now along with Dr Steve Hambleton from the Australian Medical Association. First to you Emily. How much of an inconvenience was it to have to travel so far just to see your doctor? , Were you really surprised that that was the situation you ended up in Yeah, definitely Mel, when my friends said I would need a reference from a GP to even attempt to get into Bendigo, GP, I at the time, what would they say in to get into Bendigo, GP, I wondered a reference for starters? And then to ring my family GP to work out, I guess the severity of my illness before making the travel either to Melbourne or to my family GP in Warrnambool where I grew up. Steve, why is this happening? This shows the real human impact of the policies that were in place 10-15 years ago when the government decided that there was an oversupply of doctors and turned the tap off. We decreased number of medical students, it takes ten years to train a family doctor. We have now got this tragic story being replayed in Australia. If the tap was turned off If the tap was turned off 10-15 years ago when was it turned back on again? When will we see an end to this. again? When will we see an end to this.? 2000, there were 1600 medical students in the pipeline each year. Now there is over Now there is over 3,000. Next year 3500, so the tap is turned on. We are facing these doctors and make sure they get out in the community and can service the public. So it doesn't make the situation any better for 'emly, right now but it will get better. We do need leadership from the Federal government to work with the state governments to provide sufficient training places. Because of these tragic stories can't be repeated. 'Emly, are you OK now? Yeah, I'm fine but it has than interesting, a interesting, Yeah, I'm fine but it has Yeah, I'm fine but it has been interesting and a lot of friends have text Mead and said the same thing.

We'll hear from the PM in 10 minutes but let's continue our coverage with Nat. Another deadly asylum seeker emergency has prompted a marathon political debate aimed at breaking the political impasse over border protection policies. Six hours of often-heated argument saw legislation to restore offshore processing passed by the lower house. There were tantrums... Put politics aside. (SHOUTING) And give it a go. ..and tears. I will never, ever support a people swap where you can send a 13-year-old child unaccompanied to a country

without supervision. Then, finally, after six hours of passionate debate, the lower house passed Independent Rob Oakeshott's bill to allow offshore processing of asylum seekers, including sending some to Malaysia and processing on Nauru. This is an example where the Parliament has come together to see a solution to a very difficult problem. , The house of representatives voted not for a solution but for a steal , It's believed 3 people went with the boat. Most were Afghan It's believed 3 people went down women and children. By all means negotiate, by all means amend but do not block. Seven chief political correspondent Mark Riley joins us now from Canberra. Good morning. . We have just heard Graham Richardson say despite all the tears and the emotion, this did not achieve anything. Do you agree with him. No, I do not. The people have been wanting the parliament to debate this issue. They got the debate but they didn't get the result. It has passed through the house of representatives and now it's up to the Senate. While there is a bill before the parliament, there is a hope but only a flicker. What will break that dead lock? It doesn't sound like either side will cave in? No, it doesn't. Malaysia is the deal breaker. You heard Joe Hockey say the opposition won't accept that The government says children won't be sent unaccompanied to Malaysia the opposition's amendment I would would strike out Malaysia wouldn't sent unaccompanied to Malaysia but

pass the parliament either. Thank you very much for the update. The jury in the trial of accused triple murderer Max Sica will begin a second day of deliberations today.

England's batsmen haven't seen much of Cummins and Aussie vice-captain Shane Watson expects the 19-year-old to cause plenty of problems. , Especially for the English who haven't seen him much.

You stayed onboard, well done. Pretty good for a first Another asylum seeker boat has been intercepted overnight near Christmas Island. It came just hours after a vessel capsized yesterday. The rescue operation for that boat ended overnight. There were 130 survivors, 1 person confirmed dead and 3 believed to have drowned. The tragedy sparked heated and emotional debate in Parliament. I believe that Australia has had a gutful of us fighting on this issue. they're sick of hearing of more people dying. After the bill was passed by the lower house, it goes to the Senate today. But the Malaysia solution remains a major sticking point for the Coalition. I will never, ever, support a people swap where you can send a 13-year-old child unaccompanied to a country without supervision. Never - it'll be over my dead body. So, is this deal doomed to fail? We're joined now by the Prime Minister Julia Gillard. Good morning. First of all, , We have had a gut full full of this. We are sick of the politics, won't you budge on Malaysia. We are sick of the politics, why The bill that's before the Senate today, Kochie is a genuine compromise and it's the only bill that can pass the parliament today. It's taken the central element of the government's plan, the arrangement with Malaysia and combininged it with the central element of the opposition's plan. It passed the house of representatives. So, passed the house of representatives. So, where we are today, is a very, very clear choice facing the Senate. Either people go home parliament tonight with laws in place that enable us to process Either people go home from

people offshore, or we leave the parliament with nothing done. I think the Australian people are looking to this parliament to act. They want to see compromise. We've certainly been prepared to compromise. The house of representatives yesterday endorsed that. But hang on, Malaysia isn't a signatory to the United signatory to the signatory to the United Nations charter. 140 other countries are. Why not swap Malaysia with one of those? That seems pretty easy to me. Well, Kochie, we have negotiated with Malaysia so that it would honour. Negotiate with someone else. David, it's not that easy to find countries to enter into arrangements to take asylum seekers. It's not that easy. The rangement we have negotiated with Malaysia is one in which Malaysia has said it would honour the central tenets of the refugee convention, is you don't return a person to a place where they could be persecuted, caught, killed, tortured, Malaysia has given that undertaking. We have expert advice from the people who advise the Howard government too that this is the most effective way of sending a message to people smuglers that Australia is no longer an open place where they can pretend to people that they can sell them passage, to get to Australia. All right. David, at the end of the day, I can sit here, I can sit here for hours and argue why Malaysia's the right solution and Tony Abbott could sit here for several other hours and argue why Nauru is the right solution, at the end of the day, we have got to work together and find a way of getting laws in place will enable us to protest people offshore. What we have done is way of getting laws in place that

combined both perspectives, Malaysia and Nauru and the only way that this parliament will pass laws today is if what went through the house of representatives yesterday, is endorsed by the Senate. So it's really a very grave question of conscious now for Senator, conscious now for Senator,s the House of Representatives has spoken, no the Rob Oakeshott bill, a genuine compromise, was supported by the government, by all the Independents in the house of house and people of very good conscious like Mal Washer, of the Liberal Party were of the Liberal Party were prepared to view it favourably. It's the only law before the Senate, and I am tauling on Senator, today is the day, we are on the verge of a solution, let's get this done. But there are two such big sticking points and it looks like it won't go through the Senate, despite your appeal this morning. Why appeal this morning. Why where does this leave us snrks sn we need to find this solution, will you cancel the winter break. It appears the Senate is not going to be the way to go. The only way of find ago solution is for a compromise to be endorsed. We've been prepared to compromise. It was not the government's preferred plan to have a detention centre in Nauru. There are many members of the Labor Party who have shed some quiet tears over endorsing that. It's something they found very hard. But people have been prepared to work for a compromise. So we are only going to see laws passed this parliament if people say parliament if people say " parliament if people say "let's put the politician to one side. Let's acknowledge I'm not going to get everything I want. Let's make sure everything can come together. That's what the House did yet." I know you are a big supporter United Nations, - the work at I know you are a big supporter of United Nations, and all the different agencies. I just can't United Nations, - the work at the

understand why you are so stuck on a country that doesn't sign to that charter, despite the fact, if they have said " have said "oh, we are going to to the central tenet, why to the central tenet, why don't they just sign the lease? have said "oh, we are going to agree

just sign the lease?" Why just sign the lease?" Why don't they become a signatory to it and become a signatory to it and show us. The Greens. These are a law unto themselves, do you feel like giving them a good shake and slap and say them a good shake and slap and saying " saying "guy, get a life." Let me go through though questions. On Malaysia, you and I can't make other countries sign conventions other countries sign conventions but we other countries sign conventions but we have been able to work with Malaysia and the United Nations high commission for refugees, the peak agency that deal was refugee issues has been involved in discussions as we have worked with Malaysia. So, Kochie, if your your central concern as an individual is what about United Nations, we have been talking to the relative United Nations peak as an individual is what about the

body all of the way through. They have been involved with the minister for immigration, Chris Bowen as he has talked to Malaysia. What about the Greens. Then on the question of the Greens, I don't care, whether someone is sitting in the Senate today is a liberal person, a national party person, a green person, I don't care if they are brown, red, pink, yellow, that doesn't worry me. I don't careless. I care whether people are acting in cord answer with their conscious. I care whether people are acting today to stop more drownings at sea. I don't want to see us leave this parliament without laws and the om way now of a law going through this parliament today is for the Senate to endorse what the House of Ret ifs voted for yesterday. If they don't, will you cancel the winter break and keep going? Sf sn if we can't keep this through today. It leaves news a dreadful pox. Will you looking at cancelling the winter break. I'm answering your question because something would have to move that make that worthwhile. proposition, Mr Abbott put to the parliament yesterday was defeated. make that worthwhile. The

So, Mr Abbott's proposition did not get the support of the House of Representatives. The proposition, the compromise, the genuine compromise did get the support of the House Of Representatives. We are in a situation where the leader of the opposition and his team isn't prepared to move a millimetre, we are not going to see change. prepared to move a millimetre, then we are not there yet. There is still we are not going to see change. But the opportunity for Senators this morning. Yes, no, if it doesn't get through the Senate yes or no, that's all we know. Will you cancel the winter break? Well, I would be prepared to sit here if there was going to be So yes, you will Let me finish Let me finish my sentence. I would be prepared to be here of be prepared to be here be prepared to be here, of course I would if there was the prospect of getting something done. But, getting something done. But,, David, I want you to understand this, I don't want you to walk away with a miss impression. If this bill doesn't through go through the Senate today, then I do not see, even if this parliament sat all through the winter break, how a law would get through it. This is the law. Maybe we have to keep you all in detention and just stay there and say " say "come up with a way of stopping this." Anyway. Well, David, I agree. We have to come up with a way of come up with a way of stopping That's why when there is a compromise on the table, that has come up with a way of stopping this.

gone through one house of parliament, it really is not the right thing for the other house of parliament to stand in the way parliament to stand in the way of that becoming law. All right, certainly pressure on the Senate today. Really appreciate your time this morning. Thank you. Thank you. The Queen and former IRA commander Martin McGuinness have shaken hands overnight that will help heal the wounds of Northern Ireland's troubled past. Chris Ship reports from Belfast. This was no ordinary handshake. What is for most people a simple gesture, was for the Queen and this former commander of the IRA, a hugely significant moment. And with this image, Northern Ireland took yet another step to putting its violent past behind it and told her the words meant "Goodbye and godspeed". , At the advice Toyota the theatre, they turned off the sound. Mr McGuinness greeted the head of state. He touched the hand of the squeen whose solders and citizens, his former organisation once tried to kill. The person The person Queen has personal experience of terrorism. In 1978 they killed her cousin. Today's historic hand shape historic hand shape step even from the Queen's historic visit to Dublin last year. Sinn Fein boycotted that event. At the time it was considered out of step with the mood of the Irish people. As he left today, Martin McGuinness insisted he had not given up on the cause of Irish nationalism. I'm still a Republican. But his handshake was a step too far for hardliners. I don't like using terms such as 'traitor'. I'm not going to lower myself to Martin McGuiness standards. I'd say without a doubt he has lost all logic, politically. He has lost all respect of the Irish Republican base. There was some violence in west Belfast last night. The disturbances in the mainly Catholic area left a number of police officers injured but it did not overshadow this visit to Northern Ireland which continued at Belfast 'Titanic' museum. The Duke of Edinburgh looked very at ease after his latest treatment in hospital. She has boarded the ride which takes visitors on a tour of the shipyard, it was time for Northern Ireland to reflect on how all sides have travelled here since the dark days of the troubles. forward, Haven't they? Just when you live those through bomb goes, that was our lifetime. It was such a massive deal and now the guy who ran the show is shaking the Queen's hand. It's hard to believe it's happening? If they can reach a compromise, maybe they can come maybe they can come over here and I am still as frustrated. I am still as frustrated.. If they got their heads together and we could do T For the Prime Minister say we will go on holidays, what, you are suddenly going to come back after your holiday and say we can fix it today.

The bill that's before the Senate today, Kochie, is a genuine compromise and it's the only bill that can pass the Parliament today. It comes as the search for survivors from the capsized asylum seeker boat off Christmas Island was called off. 130 people were rescued. Another asylum seeker boat has been intercepted off Christmas Island overnight. There's some serious traffic chaos in Sydney this morning. Traffic is at the crawl on the Sydney Harbour Bridge because the harbour tunnel has been closed. It has reopened now, but much later than originally planned. Apparently concrete that was laid overnight took longer to set. Drivers should expect long delays. A petrol tanker carrying more than 80,000 litres of fuel has collided with a ute and rolled onto its side in Melbourne. The B-double is leaking petrol and diesel onto the Hume Highway, which is spilling into drains. CFA crews are trying to contain the leak. They're also monitoring explosive vapour levels. There are more than 20 fire crews on scene. Paramedics treated two people who were in the ute for minor injuries. Mystery surrounds a shooting on the Gold Coast overnight. A man arrived at Gold Coast Hospital last night with a gunshot wound to the shoulder. Doctors alerted police who found the man's abandoned car at Arundel. The man's injuries aren't believed to be life-threatening. He's refusing to cooperate with police. It's a landmark day in the countdown to the London Olympics. A giant set of rings has been lowered into position on London's Tower Bridge to mark one month until the Games begin. Riverboat to rings - release the rings now. , He will probably only say that once in his Games chairman Lord Coe and the Mayor of London cheered from a boat on the Thames as the rings were hoisted into place. They weigh more than 3 tonnes and cost more than $400,000 to make. , This time in a month, competition

will be under way on the first morning of the games. Brock McLean's foul-mouthed Twitter tirade has cost the midfielder $5,000. In addition to the fine, the Blues also hit McLean with a suspended 1-match ban The drama started when McLean Tweeted about having a bad day to which a follower replied, "Did you finally get de-listed?" McLean responded with, "No, your mother gave me AIDS." Oh, little bit surprised I think Brock would probably want to take it back but the damage is done now. In Sydney, Giants star Israel Folau will miss this weekend's Derby against the Swans due to a hamstring injury. Kiwi-born Blues prop James Tamou has weighed in to the controversial debate over State of Origin eligibility. Tamou controversially switched allegiances before this year's Origin series and has urged other New-Zealand-born players to do the same. The Maroons have selected Kiwi-born Broncos back rower Ben Te'o in their 20-man squad for game three and they also considered picking Bulldogs prop Sam Kasiano. Australia's worst performance ever at Wimbledon is complete after Sam Stosur was upset by world number 72 Arantxa Rus overnight. The world number five lost in three sets, 6-2, 0-6, 6-4. Stosur's defeat means there'll be no Australian singles player in round three of a Grand Slam for the first time in the Open era. Reigning champions Spain is the first team through to the final of Euro 2012 after defeating Portugal in a pressure-packed penalty shootout. Cesc Fabregas calmly converted the winning spot kick, leaving Portugal skipper Cristiano Ronaldo gutted. Spain will do battle with either Germany or Italy in the decider.
