Hinch revealed personal details about the man known as Father F on Victorian radio station 3AW yesterday. Father F has been the focus of media reports looking at allegations the Catholic Church had covered up abuse cases. It comes only months after Hinch was released from home detention for breaching suppression orders by naming two sex offenders. , He has been a crusader for years on that's he sticks to his guns. Fallen AFL star Ben Cousins is hoping to return to football despite his ongoing battle with drugs. Cousins has broken his silence for the first time since being find last month for possession. The 33-year-old wants to get back involved with the game, possibly as coach. I miss going to the footy club every day and I guess the next best thing is probably having a coaching involvement with one of the sides. But whether that happens, we'll have to wait and see. We'll see part of his exclusive interview with 7 News later this Sunrise. But should Cousins be allowed to take up a coaching role? Tell us what you think? , I just have a hunch that there has been a big turning of the corner in his life. You know, I just feel that, acknowledgment of his problem, and the ownership of it if you like and that - I kind of in his eye, I

just sort of figure that he might have turned a big corner. He says now that he has a son, he is thinking about it more? Would you want him coaching his son. He had the son when he went down to Esperance and did all that. I think he had to hit that complete bottom. That's what I think a lot of people were waiting for, that ownership, that accepting ship and not palming it. Everyone does deserve a second chance. It has been so public. Everything he has been through drug wise, his schoon are skin is good. His wise, his schoon are skin is good. His teeth. He stayed fit and healthy.

Here is A boy is being hailed a hero after saving his mum from their burning home in Melbourne's north. The 8-year-old was sleeping on the couch of their Heidelberg West house last night when he heard a bang and saw the lounge room curtains on fire. The grandson woke his mother up, his mother was asleep. He was asleep until the fire started and, yeah, he just woke his mother up and she just instantly rang the fire brigade. The boy's mothers suffered burns to her hands while trying to extinguish the flames with a blanket. And, in another fire in Victoria a dry cleaning business which has been open for 90 years has been gutted in Healesville. It took crews around four hours to bring the blaze under control. And Opposition Leader Tony Abbott is refusing to play ball with the government over negotiations on asylum seekers. Mr Abbott has formally turned down positions on Julia Gillard's border protection committee, saying it would simply produce a pre-determined political outcome. Last night, former Coalition leader Malcolm Turnbull argued tough action is needed to stop people smuggling. There are none of these measures that are not cruel, they are all cruel, they are all harsh but they are designed to stop a greater evil. Mr Turnbull has backed his party's calls for offshore processing in Nauru. The body of the latest Australian soldier killed in Afghanistan has been returned home to Perth. At a moving repatriation ceremony Sergeant Blaine Diddams was honored for his dedication as a SAS veteran. The 40-year-old was shot dead by an insurgent last week. We all feel the pain and the sacrifice of a soldier in service to his nation. Sergeant Diddams is the 33rd Australian soldier to be killed during the war in Afghanistan. Bali Nine ring leader Myuran Sukumaran has made a last-ditch effort to avoid the firing squad. The 31-year-old and his legal team have written a 46-page letter to the Indonesian President asking for clemency. It says he has repented and turned his life around. The document includes statements of support from officers at Kerobokan jail along with other members of the Bali Nine and Schapelle Corby. Sukumaran is on death row over his role in trying to smuggle more than 8kg of heroin from Bali to Australia. Our recent run of cheap petrol looks to be over with international oil prices on the rise. Latest reports show petrol prices have fallen for eight consecutive weeks with the national price dropping by over 18 cents. But that's all set to change. I think you've seen a substantial rise in global oil prices and that's largely due the fact that we've had an oil strike in Norway, tensions in the Middle East and a little bit of improvement in risk appetite. Prices at the bowser are expected to slowly rise over the coming weeks. One of Hollywood's most famous couples, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes, have reached a speedy settlement in their divorce. Holmes' attorney has announced an agreement has been signed by both actors, officially ending their 5-year marriage.

The video shows a man reading from the Koran saying "We cannot forgive her. God tells us to finish her." Then her husband is handed an AK-47 rifle. The 22-year-old woman was accused of adultery. What happens next we can't show you, as the vision is just too graphic but she was shot repeatedly. Joining us is Sunrise foreign editor, Dr Keith Suter. Good morning. This video is an example of why our troops have been fighting there, isn't it? , It is. We have just had this pledging conference in Tokyo where a number of countries have said they will promised more money. In our case we have said we will give $ case we have said we will give $1 billion over the next four years in Afghanistan. It's a reminder of what is to happen if the Taliban were to take over again. There was a woman Bee heeded in Afghanistan just a few days ago. A very graphic reminder of why NATO and Australia have trite to field the Taliban in Afghanistan. It's just shocking. The other of the argument I suppose, many It's just shocking. The other side people would ask, why have been risking Australian lives, if this sort of thing is still happening. Yes, of course, this the other of the video. In a sense, Watt Taliban are saying, is to the Yes, of course, this the other side

people, the Americans have announced they will be out in 1. people, the Americans have already announced they will be out in 1.5 years's time. You've got 1. years's time.

For many people, in the NATO, to come and get new 1.5 years time,

countries, six more NATO soldiers were killed in of the last few hours, a lot of people are wondering why we are still there. This is now America and Australia's longest war. Yeah. Just a terrible situation. Keith, thank you for explaining it this Melbourne City Council has declared war on the city's "bomb site" buildings. Lord Mayor Robert Doyle is urging owners of derelict sites to clean up their act. He says he won't tolerate properties deteriorating to the point where you can't do anything with them. He admits there's not much he can do, but is trying to shame them into action as a last resort. 7 News reporter Nick McCallum is in Melbourne. Good morning. , Every capital city, there will be

people applauding Robert Doyle here. How bad are these bomb sites, not just in Melbourne but right around the country. Certainly in Melbourne, they are absolutely appaling and disgraceful. There are about half a dozen of them, Kochie, probably the worst example is the old Savoy tavern site. It's site. It's right across from the southern cross railway station. So thousands of people pour into Melbourne on that station every day, walk out the door and they are greeted by this derelict, empty, ugly old building. It has been empty now for 17 years. The council is so desperate to clean up particular site t has gone to the desperate to clean up that owner and said " owner and said "we will pay for demolishing it and we will put a temporary park on the site until you figure out what to do." So far, no response from the owner. He is just not interested in doing that sort of thing. That's one. - the most glaring example I say of about half a dozen. Is that the only action the council can say, to say " can say, to say "look, we will tear it down for you, stick a park there." They can't say to the owner. Clean two up. Melbourne is famous for just restoring its beautiful buildings. Well, sadly, they are privately owned so there is nothing they can really do. Mr Doyle has written now personally to the owners of the worst examples and said " worst examples and said "let's sit down, council with your officials, see what we can do to pretty two in the meantime." But there is not a lot they can do. They can't double see what we can do to pretty two up

the rates, for instance, these guys are paying so much on land tax anyway, doubling the rates just wouldn't affect them. As I say, there are these bomb sites right around the country, they are such a Blight on the landscape. Nick, thank you for that. Now to the story of an Olympic hopeful who's had her dreams of competing in London shattered. This is Hayley Beresford. She's one of the country's top equestrian riders and just a few days ago, she was our top scorer at the World Equestrian Festival in Germany. But she's missed out on a spot at the Games. Olympic selectors have used their discretionary powers and given the place to Kristy Oatley who is ranked at 283 in the world. It's sparked plenty of controversy and some nasty allegations. That's because Kristy is the granddaughter of billionaire Bob Oatley who also happens to be a major financial sponsor of equine events in Australia. Hayley Beresford joins us now from Germany. Good morning. , Just explain this process to us. I think the process has been unfair. I know the practice has been unfair because of the discretionary powers that the selection panel has that are able to override the performances. And it's become unfair because of the circumstances. Now, it's not actually any rider's fault. It's just - it's the circumstances. Kristy came into the game late and I don't actually have a problem with that if it raises the standard of the team we end up sending to London. But, the circumstances that surrounded the whole process that were horsed needed an exemption because he was ill in the first competition, which led us only being able to ride head-to-head on one occasion. We were 0. occasion. We were 0.3% of a difference between us and the selection panel were able to use their discretionary powers to overrule performances. I don't believe they had enough evidence that they could use these powers and when they had so much discretion available to them, I don't see why we didn't or they didn't send us all off to a second show so Kristy had another opportunity to go head-to-head with myself and the other riders of course. This was the advice of our team advisor. advice of our team advisor in Germany. I feel that it's a bit unfair that on one occasion we only had one head-to-head and there wasn't a difference worthy to use

the discretion powers they are were able to to use. Do you hold any personal resentment towards Kristy Oatley? Absolutely not. Absolutely not to any of the team members. You have lost two appeals. Just quickly, is there any further you can take this? No. I do not plan another appeal. In three weeks time, our team has to do their very best in London. And I'm not their very best in London. And I'm not going to stand in their way. I'm going to support them.

He says that because the Greens and the Independents, the same group that created the carbon tax are on this committee. There is already a predetermined outcome. Instead, he

it hold talks with Angus Houston. That means the government now has to win over the Greens and Sam, that will ab hard task because the Greens don't even agree to off-shore processing. OK.

Following his latest drug conviction last month, the 33-year-old says he's putting his life back together and is hoping for a coaching job.

Nick, how lucky were they? , 8-year-old Brandon Watts was asleep on the couch, he was woken by loud noises and awoke to find flames in the loungeroom. What he did next, probably saved his own life and that of his mother as well in addition to saving most of the house. His grandfather described what happened. The grandson woke his mother up. His mother was asleep and he was asleep until the fire started. And yeah. He just woke his mother up and she instantly rang the fire brigade. She tried to put it out with a blanket or whatever, that's when she received the superficial Burns. Her Burns aren't dangerous. Brandon also received Her Burns aren't considered some super figures Burns in the fire. After help had woken his fire, he decided to save the second most important thing in the house which was his X box but he certainly saved the day. They were lucky. Do we know what caused it? No word on that yet. We do know when he woke up, he saw flames flying up the curtains. Fire investigators will be here later in the morning to try and establish a cause for the blaze but it did cause an blaze but it did cause an estimated blaze but it did cause an estimated

$70,000 damage to the house. It is a warning isn't t that's it's winter, sort out your heating and be safe with those fire alarms. Thank you very much And as we've been reporting, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have reached a divorce settlement. Showbiz editor Nelson Aspen is in New York. Good morning, again. Nelson, did this happen sooner than expected? So, what have Tom and Katie said? , It sure did happen a lot sooner and a lot more with - with a lot more sieve illity than was

sieve illity than was expected. Tom and skate Kathie did release a statement saying we were committed to work together in to work together So that answers a lot of quiz in So that answers a lot of quiz So that answers a lot of So that answers a lot So that answers a lot questions, they are going to try and things out with Suri, rumours are swirling around about what is going they are going to try and work

to happen as far as custody goes with Suri. It it is looking as if, Katie will have primary custody and that Suri will not be exposed to Scientology like they said, privacy is tantamount. Custody has to be worked out. Did I read on one of the wires Tom wants what is it, meaning full and consistent access to Suri. consistent access to Suri.? consistent access toSuri? I think the other word was " I think the other word was "significant'. They want to keep it together. Respectful of each other and that's the good news. As far as what is next for Kathie, she is working on a film called 'Molly' about a single mom in New York city with a daughter. It sounds like it it's pre-planed. OK Nelson. Keep us up to Queensland police are using tasers on children as young as 12. Documents obtained by 7 News under Right to Information laws show the kids are dangerous, mostly armed, and sometimes threatening murder. Over the past two years, 42 children have either been tasered or threatened with one. Most of them are aged 16 but two 12-year-olds have also been shocked. Joining me now is the Queensland Police Union President, Ian Leavers. Good morning. Ian, is there ever really a situation where kids as young as 12 should be tasered? Absolutely, we are not talking about young children who are at the football or netball on a Saturday morning. We are often talking about violent, out of controlouts are violent, out of controlouts violent, out of controlout youths who are threatening violent behaviour and police have no option but to use the taster. Often, as we know, it has been supported by carers and parents. If police didn't have the use of a taster, the other option maybe a firearm. I think the taster is the positive thing. Are they tested on kids? We see the police test them on adults and do media conferences Ex explaining how they work to us. But is there more of a danger taste erring a child? No, they are not tested on children at all. Police throughout their training have volumed to be tasteered as part of the training. But it's not tested on children. These are youths who are violent, out of control, often threatening other people's lives. Police are left with no option but to use a taster. It's not an option we wish to use. Our choice is to use the least amount of force available to us but sometimes we have no option. If we didn't use a taster, it may very well be a firearm. Look, it's a difficult situation. Thank you very much for explaining it, Ian. Thank you, very much Here's Sam. Well, it sounds like the holy grail of weight loss - being able to eat whatever you want and still stay slim. American scientists think they've found the answer. It's being called the "Flab Jab". It was given to mice in a recent study and even when they were fed a high fat diet, they still lost 10% of their body weight in only four days. Let's see what Sunrise GP Dr Ginni Mansberg makes of it. Good Morning. How does this work? There is this slow down hormone and it's in the body and it basically puts a hand brake on all of the speed up met ab list am hormones. What they have done, they have married it to like a back tear why to trick the body into thinking, it's a bad chemical. Let's go gobble it out and take the hand brake off and allow met ab list am speed up. As you said, they lost heaps of weight in four days, even though their diet didn't change. It sounds a bit worrying. What do you think of these quick fictiones? It's not that - I think if we think the ball game with weight, is just looking great, we have really missed the plot. There is so much that eating badly does to your brain. It makes you depressed. It gives you a heart disease risk. It gives you a diabetes risk. There is so much more to losing weight than just looking good. If anything that encourages people to people to keep eat ago high fat

diet. How long do you think before we see it on the market. All of us are interested in a quick four days, at the moment we are at the rats and mice stage, I reckon at least ten years. It will be expensive? Oh yeah, they are Oh yeah, they are not going to give it away. OK, Ginni, great to see you. Here's Kochie. Fallen AFL star Ben Cousins is hoping to return to football despite his ongoing battle with drugs. He's spoken exclusively to Seven News, breaking his silence since his latest conviction. The 33-year-old says he's trying to get his life together and has flagged a comeback as a coach. Reflective and reserved. Ben Cousins chose his words carefully , Am in a rebuilding phase and hopefully some doors can open. It's important to the family life that I'm trying to lead. The Brownlow Medallist is determined to turn his life around, following his recent drug possession charge. He knows that now he is a father, it's more important than ever. Everyone tells you, it's life changing and you will never look at things the same once it happens. I sort of belief them. Until you front up yourself and go through it, you don't really understand what they are saying. It's all true. It's of the most amazing things in life? of the most amazing things in life are saying. It's all true. It's one Ben sites his son as his motivation. He has been a blessing. He has been a good kid so it's one of those amazing thirnction isn't it But he admits it will take a leap of faith for faith for someone to take a punt on him. Obviously I have had some issues to deal with. I can look forward now and positively. He is hoping a role in football could play a part in his future. I enjoy footy. I do miss it. I miss going to the footy club every day and knocking around with your mates. I guess, the next best thing is probably having a coaching involvement with one of the sides. But whether that happens, we will have to wait and Joining me now is AFL commentator with the Seven Network, Tim Watson. Timmy, good morning to you. Ben Cousins has spoken about turning his life around before. Do you believe him this time? Well, I think just looking at those pictures of him yesterday, I think he looks a lot better. It looks like he might be on the road back to recovery. Tim, look, with a tortured soul like this, you want the best for the bloke. You want him to turn his life around. Do you think there would be an AFL club wanting him in a coaching role? Look, you're right in what you say and, look, he has an addiction. He's going to have to live with that addiction for the rest of his life. I think though clubs will be cautious initially about his recovery. I think what Ben's going to have to do, if he really wants to become a coach and get involved back in the AFL I think he's going to have to enter at a lower level and he's going to have to prove himself all over again. Do you think he's capable of being a good coach? Do you think - would he have a talent for it? Look, I don't know, Kochie. All I know is that having spoken to Richmond players that were there playing alongside Ben when he was at Richmond a couple of years ago, they were astounded at his knowledge and his ability to be able to teach other players when he was part of that group. So from that, I've deemed that he does have a lot to offer football clubs. But as you know, it's about being able to discipline himself and commit himself and dedicate himself to a whole new occupation and that would be coaching. It's a magnificent opportunity for him if he can rebuild himself. Football clubs historically are very embracing. They are very welcoming of those who have been part of the football fraternity. So if he can prove himself over a period of time I think he'll be able to find his way back into footy. Look, Tim, in the AFL itself, in AFL circles, are they still a bit wary of him or are they encouraging, supportive of him? Well, I think you can be both, Kochie. and that it is a long, ongoing process. I mean, once you are an addict, you are an addict for the rest of your life. I think there is a weariness about that. I think there are a lot of people out there who have supported Ben in the past. I am sure there are a lot of people who would like to support him again. All right, Tim, appreciate it, mate. Thank you, have a good day. Thanks, Kochie. Now Prince William has shown his father what he does at work. William and Prince Charles inspected a search-andrescue helicopter and toured the base. But the young prince is raising a few eyebrows because he went surfing while Andy Murray was trying to win Wimbledon. William and brother Harry enjoyed the waves with some mates.

Here he is. He is in amongst it. You are on, GD. G'day mate, I was too busy trying to figure out how to hang on. Because guess what? We are in the Southern Ocean and we had an encounter. Yes. Take a look at this footage of just a couple of minutes ago. We had a great white come up to us, curiousity at maximum. He eyeballed

us threw his nose into the side of the cage and had a bit after thrash around. It was spectacularly frightening. We are being buffeted a fair bit at the moment inside the cage as it cage as it is just by the normal open swells of current. There it is. My goodness. Oh. My - nose to nose with a great white. A tonne of muscle. A Deepwater machine. And muscle. A Deepwater machine. And now I just I muscle. A Deepwater machine. And now muscle. A Deepwater machine. And I am just trying to figure out where on earth he is. In this sort of swell and you - you t feels like you are in a bit of a washing machine to be honest. So be honest. So It's very easy for a limb to make its way outside the cage when you are being buffeted like you are. As this light comes up and you are unsure where they are, it's terrifying at the same time but tantalising too, you know. I kind of - who was OK, no problem. Sorry, I just got a few people talking to me in my ear to try and make this possible. Let me just explain. This is quite a technical achievement. We are on the Neptune Islands. It's a protected island of Australia's greatest gathering of New Zealand fur seals is why we are here to see great whites. Now, obviously they the Australian coast line. They whites.
