Well, our Reserve Bank board minutes show there is a less of a sense of urgency to cut interest rates, very different to what Jodie different to what was being said. different to what

Craig is at CommSec. What did the minutes say about our economy. It was very much an even handed judgment. One of those typical economists things on one hand this and on the other hand that. The transport sector was strong but on the other side, weakness in the retailing area. The construction area and also the manufacturing area. Even in terms of retail spending, little bit of a pick up in terms of activity but they said probably that's occurred because a lot of retailers are discounting. Even in terms of the global economy, US, Europe, not doing so well but China picking up. I think you are right, the less sense of an urgency, interest rate cut, still on the table. But the Reserve Bank is waiting for more information to provide that interest rate cut to us. OK. Thank you for that.

Because Justin Bieber is the best singer. Yes, he is. Not only that, nobody wants to miss a thing. Look at this girl. She has a go pro-camera on her head to record every single captivating moment.

You must be looking forward to meeting him again. Lets be fair (SCREAMING) Lets be fair (SCREAMING). It's fair to assume that Justin was suffering from jetlag at the time. He could also need to urgently see an optometrist. I will take that up with Justin a bit later on. I am stand ago metre away from the stage. The girls are going absolutely crazy. Some girls have been here since 7 o'clock yesterday morning and look, I think - there is a pandemonium we are about to see is nothing compared to what we saw a few years ago. This will be crazy, guys. A few words there. It's getting pretty loud. I think the screaming is with the audio. Eddy, where are you I think the screaming is connecting Kochie, sorry about before, I must have been prematurely deaf already have been prematurely deaf already. This is a bit of a bird's eye set up. It has up. It has been 24 ourselves in the making. Can you see all the crowds down here. But two lines of defence. Where Grant is standing is kind of of another barrier to prevent crowd crush but it has been very ordinarily as ordinarily as a Justin Bieber concert can be. The fans started arriving this morning at around 5 am through the gates they have been sleeping here our crew reports around 5 am through the gates but

Yesterday with their sleeping bags crew reports since 11 o'clock. outside here on the rocks. Can I just show you, perhaps a misguided idea.

It's a big day on Sunrise Justin Bieber but we have plenty of other news for you and issues to It's a big day on Sunrise with

Carlton star Chris Judd out of the AFL for four weeks for a chicken-wing tackle. And the teenager who escaped from a dingo in the Northern Territory. You're watching Sunrise live on Justin Bieber Day. VOICEOVER: Kleenex Silk Touch tissues are Australia's softest. No wonder people like to share them with the ones they love.

mpblt yeah, see my interview Matt White, only on'Today Tonight'. mpblt yeah, see my interview with That's like a objectiony more on. Hey, don't call me a more on. 'Today Tonight'. Like, yesterday I'm Justin Bieber make sure you catch my interview with Matt White only on today night. That's like a nursery rhyme. That is Justin Bieber joking with'Today Tonight''s Matt White. The moment he appears on screen, That is Justin Bieber joking around

The moment he appears on screen, the (SCREAMING) The moment he appears on screen, the screaming starts. There Now apart from Bieber, also making news this morning, the teenager attacked by a dingo. Rebecca Robinson from Victoria was camping at Kakadu when she felt a her sleeping bag being pulled. She initially thought it was her brothers playing a prank. But when Rebecca heard the sleeping bag rip, she looked to see the dingo which ran when she yelled. Rebecca's mum says she now understands how a dingo could've taken Azaria Chamberlain at Uluru in 1980. How terrifying. When you think of the size of a 13-year-old, that's really frightening obviously. There have been a few, this dry season right in the same sorts of spots. Scary. Carlton skipper, Chris Judd, is making headlines after being punished for his chicken-wing tackle. Judd has been handed a 4-match ban by the AFL Tribunal for the tackle on North Melbourne's Leigh Adams. He's apologised to Adams and also to Blues' supporters for letting them down. We'll talk to Seven AFL commentator, Tom Harley, shortly on whether four matches is justified. It was a pretty crude tackle so, I think our feeling was when we first looked at it, four to six so the tribunal is pretty good at And Chris Judd is already big online. Dave Williams from TripleM in Melbourne has posted this photo from Woolworths in Drysdale, where there's a Chris Judd special on chicken wings. it. That's quick. Don't miss a chance. That's very clever. I love that sense of humour. Aussie billionaire, Clive Palmer, is back in the news over his plans for a modern day 'Titanic'. Palmer's released more details about the ship including the new safety deck. But it's his plan to ban pensioners from the onboard casino that's grabbed the headlines. He wants to make sure people who can't afford to lose money don't gamble. We'll get Clive Palmer to explain his idea later this Sunrise. But we'd like to know if you think such a ban should be put in place. He is saying because it's in international waters they will be able to do able to do what they want all the time. If you have such a gambling problem, you may not have the money to be wasting it on the machines. So OK And check this out - President Obama and First Lady Michelle were caught on the kiss cam at a basketball game. It was their daughter Malia who pointed out to her parents they were on camera, prompting them to put on a public display of affection. You can just feel an election coming in your waters, can't you! in your waters, can't you!? Michelle has been rolled out all over the country because she is very popular in the states. She is Obama's secret weapon. They are a great couple. They look like they have good fun together. Later, Ford workers tell of their shock at news of more job losses. We're live to the car making factory. But next, the news headlines. You're watching Sunrise as we countdown to Justin Bieber live on stage.

They will have no voice left by the time he arrives. I am not so sure about that! We'll check in on Justin's movements shortly. But first let's get the rest of this morning's news with Nat. Every bar and club in Sydney's Kings Cross will be audited in an attempted to keep the streets around the nightclub spot safe. A major community meeting was held in Sydney last night. Police, politicians and locals all voiced their concerns about the area. It follows the death of teenager Tom Kelly who was king hit in the Cross two weekends ago. The State Government says the audit is now underway and will continue over the next few days. And after 7:00 - we'll be joined by Malcolm Turnbull the local Federal member for the area. He'll share his ideas on cleaning up the Cross. Hundreds of Victorian workers are waking up to an uncertain future after Ford announced it will slash hundreds of jobs. The car giant will axe 440 positions out of a workforce of 3,000. Initially it will offer voluntary redundancy packages, but sackings will follow if not enough workers apply. Times are tough now, real tough. Now it's getting serious now. A long-term slump in the sale of Ford's family sedans is believed to be behind the decision. Julia Gillard will attend a business forum in the Kimberley town of Kununurra today, as part of her tour of Western Australia. Last night the Prime Minister was treated to a traditional Aboriginal welcoming ceremony. She also toured a local art gallery and met with dancers. She'll head to Wyndham in the east Kimberley region tomorrow. Queensland police are staying tight-lipped on whether they have found the bodies of a missing couple in Cairns. Police spent the night guarding an area of bushland behind Earlville last night. Scott Maitland and Cindy Masonwells haven't been seen since July 5. Detectives have been scouring bushland and will resume their search this morning. It was initially thought at least one body was found last night. But police say investigations into the suspected double murder are continuing. And we'll get a live report soon for more on the police investigation. A man has handed himself into police over a bar shooting in the US state of Alabama that left 17 people with gunshot wounds. The gunman was captured by security cameras walking towards the bar in a car park. Police say it was a targeted shooting but they won't reveal a motive. He's expected to be charged with attempted murder. And these incredible pictures show the moment a quick-thinking neighbour saved a young girl's life after she fell from a third-story window in New York. The man ran to the scene after hearing cries for help and caught the 7-year-old child in his arms. The girl's mother says she had no idea her daughter had managed to crawl outside onto the air-conditioning unit. The man was taken to hospital with a shoulder injury after his miraculous catch. Isn't that an incredible story. (APPLAUSE) Isn't that an incredible story. (APPLAUSE). You just can't trust your kids, can you? Good on that bloke. In finance news: Ben Bernanke was answering questions in Congress saying he was concerned about the economy and the slow down. Inflation was under control. His focus is on jobs to get unemployment blow 8% blow 8%. He is prepared to stimulate the economy further. To our region yesterday. Wheat and corn up another 2. Wheat and corn up another 2.5% overnight. Time for sport with for his controversial chicken-wing tackle on Leigh Adams. The dual Brownlow medallist was found guilty of serious misconduct at the AFL Tribunal last night in a hearing lasting over three hours. Judd maintains he didn't deliberately try to hurt Adams and the Blues haven't ruled out lodging an appeal. Kangaroos midfielder Jack Ziebell was also outed for four matches after his rough conduct charge was upheld. Lions utility Daniel Merrett had his charging offence downgraded and is free to play this weekend. South Sydney will decide today whether to fight the 3-match spear-tackle ban offered to hooker Issac Luke. The Kiwi international risks being rubbed out for a month if he contests the ban. Bulldogs prop Sam Kasiano will front the judiciary tonight to fight a high tackle charge. Meanwhile, Penrith centre Michael Jennings admits he's no certainty to be at the club next year despite having three seasons left on his contract. Australia's track cycling queen Anna Meares says she's ready to renew her rivalry with Great Britain's Victoria Pendleton at the London Olympics. Meares spearheads an Aussie team that's desperate to atone for not winning a gold medal in Beijing. The Cyclones are putting the finishing touches on their Olympic preparations at a training camp in Italy. Flying into London are our riders. So much happening over there right now.

They are having a great morning down there, all safe, all happy as Grant was saying. Let Australia turn to more happy news as well. New South Wales is planning to overhaul its organ donation laws in the hopes of saving more lives. A new online register where donors can choose to opt in and give their organs will soon be established. This will effectively end the need to declare whether or not you are a donor on your driver's licence. The breakthrough is sure to be welcomed by people desperately waiting for organ transplants, such as 20-year-old Will Chapman who we spoke to earlier this month. , Until if the moment arises, the in the licence or the registration means nothing. The licence was the big roadblock to organ donation here in New South Wales. It meant that transplants were about 20% less than the rest of the country. Good on Jillian Skinner and the New South Wales State Government for Government for overturning that. They will formally announce all the details of the new plan. It has taken years to get this done. It's a great step To Queensland now, where Cairns police may have made a breakthrough in their investigation into murders of Scott Maitland and Cindy Masonwells. A man's been charged with killing the couple even though their bodies are yet to be found. But a search is resuming this morning for their remains. Sunrise correspondent Michelle Tapper is on the story. Michelle, what's the latest on the investigation? Good morning, Kochie, well, police have sealed off a crime scene near dam about 2 kilometre west of Cairns. That's where they believe have sealed off a crime scene near a

the bodies of the murdered couple are. But so far they haven't confirmed if they have found the body. Only saying that they are very close. Now, it is very dense bushland, sloping terrain so it is difficult task. They will resume their search this morning and police bushland, sloping terrain so it is a

say they are very hopeful of recovering the bodies today. Bring us up-to-date with the background behind this case. Remind us. The couple were last seen on July 5, to attend an engagement party. They were there to pick up a restored panelvan an then they were planing on driving it back to Mount Isa where they worked in the mines. Even before their bodies were discovered, police arrested a man, a mechanic in Cairns. Now, he appeared in court on Monday, charge with their murders. He remains in custody until his next court appearance in early September and so far he has yet to enter a May. So hopefully we May. So hopefully we will have a better update on the body, some time early this morning. All right, keep us updated. Thank you, Michelle. for his chicken wing tackle on North Melbourne player Leigh Adams. Despite pleading guilty, the AFL Tribunal has given him a 4-match ban. Judd has apologised for the tackle. It was never my intention to hurt Leigh Adams. I've obviously expressed this apology to him personally since the event. And we'd just like to extend that apology to the Carlton Footy Club and their supporters for letting them down. Judd is one of the most respected players in the AFL. But this isn't the first time Judd has hit the headlines for his on-field behaviour. In 2009 he used pressure point tactics on a player. And in 2007 he was accused of eye gouging Campbell Brown. Seven AFL commentator Tom Harley joins us now. Good morning. Tom, did the chicken wing tackle deserve four weeks on the sideline? Morning, Mel, I think it did. I think the AFL really needed to make a stance on this. It was one of those incidents that comes under misconduct which means it's unforeseen and no real precedence set so it went straight to the tribunal, Chris Judd argued the intentional part of the charge. AFL Tribunal saw fit to ban him for intentional part of the charge. The four weeks which I think was good. He does have form He does have form unfortunately He does have form unfortunately and you see the nort Melbourne player, he went off with a dislocated shoulder as a result. He had Luxembourged shoulders going into the game and it looked as Chris Judd certainly exploited that. Do you reckon we will see this into the game and it looked as if

again, this tackle? I don't think we will. That's the beauty of the precedents that has now been set. It's a massive blow to the Carlton football club. They are in a pretty precarious situation in their zone. The penalty is massive and if a player went out there and intentionally did the chicken wing. We saw it in the NRL a few years ago, the ramifications are massive now. Yeah, he did apologise we know but we will see what this holds, we will see what this holds, we appreciate your time.

Let's go back to our guys in the crowd. We'll start with Edwina. Eddy, is the crowd coping? How am I coping? Or how are the crowd coping? I'm OK and the crowd is doing very well. Actually very calm and controlled. Perhaps I spoke too soon for a Bieber crowd. They started getting here yesterday, can you believe it? Slept overnight and when the gates opened this morning, at 5, they streamed in, absolutely loving it. Down there, not a crowd crush but some enthusiastic particular, well behaved young ladies and might I add a few gentlemen who have come to see Justin Bieb they are morning. We are having confirmation that he is nearly on his way. So get very excited indeed, they will. Either that or the boys are here because there are so many thousands girls. I love all the parents, standing outside or at the back. They are always the heroes. Someone take them a coffee. Now to Fifi Box. Fifi, you're with some very special guests? So many people have come down today. I've got Vi tarks, you are a mum, you are in here amongst the crowd. You've lost your daughter. She is somewhere in there. She is just there. She is just behind us there. We will keep an eye on her. There are parents scattered throughout the crowd. We are all babysitting this morning. It's OK, I've got my eye on them too. Brilliant. And, Grant Denyer, what's Bieber set to perform? Under a pretty beautiful sky this morning, great weather conditions to enjoy a concert. Look what happens every time we move our crane. We told you we got this thing covered from every angle. I tell you what, you will find any angle to enjoy concert. At the moment, the inside is intense. There are people on the you will find any angle to enjoy the

outside. I'm going to run out and just have a quick chat to everybody who is on limo watch to see whether there is any sign. All right. Have you seen him yet? No. The limo hasn't arrived? Well, the limo drove past just before. It might be just his crew. I know he roll was a big crew and a lot of security guards. You can tell why. Can you see anything from here I can see the stage. It's just pandemonium but you can't help but be swept up in it. It's a lot of fun or whether you are inside or outside or watching at home. If you are watching at home, we have got every camera we own and we have borrowed a few friends and you will have the closest view if you are at home. You are watching Sunrise live across Australia on what is one very big day. GRANT DENYER: Police have just stepped in.

Some of his fans were here since 1 o'clock yesterday, waiting for the gates to open yesterday gates to open yesterday at 5 o'clock, gates to open yesterday at 5 o'clock,. They are very keen. Others have been lining up with their tickets. When the gates opened, they grabbed their spot. There is a view from the sky. Look at that crowd. Very excited. So where is the chopper? I am trying to find it in the sky. It is a perfect morning this morning here on the harbour, a wonderful backdrop and now they can't wait for their idol to sing a few songs we will be having a pretty decent their idol to sing a few songs and chat with him as well. We are standing by waiting for him to a Rye. We are right across the news for this Wednesday and here is Nat with the latest update. Some industry groups fear the recent job losses at Ford could have a knock-on effect and hit suppliers. 440 jobs were cut from Victorian plants yesterday leaving workers worried about their future. For hundreds of Ford workers, their position in the company was more than just a job. Yeah, times are tough now, real tough, now it's getting serious. Some workers like Paul have worked on the production line for 35 years but now their future is very much in doubt. Just thinking about my family, that's all. 440 jobs slashed. The losses will be seen across Ford's sites in Victoria, at Broadmeadows, and Geelong. Almost all the jobs will go from the manufacturing areas. This is really a market-driven decision and the decline in the large car segment has been going on for well over a decade. The production line will be slowed from 209 vehicles a day to 148, starting in November. We're particularly disappointed in the lack of adequate consultation regarding the announcement. But while the Federal Government blame the local car industry Prime Minister Julia Gillard says the job losses could have been much worse if the Government didn't offer bailouts. If we hadn't stepped forward to work with Ford we would be talking about job losses in their thousands. Ford has committed to making cars in Australia in the long-term. Queensland police say they're very close to finding the bodies of a murdered Mount Isa couple. Cindy Masonwells and her husband Scott Maitland were last seen on July 5 when they flew to Cairns to collect a vintage car that was being repaired. A mechanic has since been charged with their murder. Police are concentrating their search in the Copperlode Dam, 2km west of Cairns. Police, politicians and locals have met in Sydney overnight to talk about the growing dangers in Kings Cross. At the forum, the New South Wales Hospitality Minister announced every bar and club in the Cross will be audited It's hoped the audit will help curb antisocial behaviour. Those attending last night's meeting all agreed alcohol was the major problem. The forum follows the death of 18-year-old Tom Kelly who was king hit during a night out. And we'll be joined by Malcolm Turnbull, the local Federal member for the area shortly. He'll share his ideas on cleaning up the Cross. after it suddenly burst into flames in central Sydney. Luckily the taxi wasn't carrying any passengers. but the taxi was already badly damaged. The cab will be examined later today to work out why it caught fire. Workers have vowed to continue their blockade outside a Coles warehouse in Melbourne until the supermarket giant and their union come up with an agreement over a pay dispute. A Supreme Court ruling banned the National Union of Workers from organising the picket. Toll group, which manages the Somerton complex, is expected to seek a permanent order when the matter returns to court this afternoon. The stars of one of the most anticipated films of the year have hit the black carpet in New York. 'The Dark Knight Rises' is the final instalment in director Christopher Nolan's 'Batman' trilogy. Anne Hathaway is among several stars making their debut in the series, she plays Catwoman. 'The Dark Knight Rises' is released in Australian cinemas tomorrow. Coming up - the final countdown is on. Justin Bieber is headed our way. Stand-by for live updates on his movements and his big performance. But first here's Kochie. That's transport movements. The Dow Jones up 78 points after fed reserve Chairman, Ben Bernanke was speaking in Congress. His focus on jobs. He is prepared to stimulate the economy. Would you believe in Spain, they have had a 44% increase to span yards emigrating out of the country. 40,000 in the past years of the year. To our region yesterday: Sport now, here's Beretts. Carlton hasn't ruled out appealing the four week suspension handed to Chris Judd for his contentious chicken wing tackle on Leigh Adams. The dual Browlow medallist fronted the AFL Tribunal last night Judd admitted the tackle was reckless but insists he wasn't deliberately trying to hurt Adams. Kangaroos midfielder Jack Ziebell was also miss four matches after failing to beat a rough conduct charge. Lions utility Daniel Merrett had his charging offence downgraded and is free to play this weekend. Bulldogs forward Sam Kasiano will front the NRL judiciary tonight to fight a high tackle charge. Dogs coach Des Hasler is desperate to have the talented prop available for Friday night's clash against his old club, Manly. Hasler's preparing to cop plenty of abuse in his return to Brookvale Oval but insists it's just another game. The Tour de France is dealing with yet another drug scandal. Last year's third placegetter, Frank Schleck, has tested positive to a banned diuretic and has quit the Tour. The race resumes tonight after a rest day and heads into the high peaks of the Pyrenees. When hopefully Cadel will make-up the 3 minutes and 19 seconds that he trails at the moment. We love our numbers. The numbers on Justin Bieber.

come back to you in half an hour Australia's struggling car-making industry has been dealt another blow with Ford's announcement that it's cutting production and axing a further 440 jobs. The positions will go from the company's plants in Victoria, at Geelong, and Broadmeadows. It comes just six months after the car-maker received a $103 million bailout The money was supposed to secure Australian operations until at least 2016. So what went wrong? Sunrise correspondent Nick Etchells is at the Ford Assembly Plant in Broadmeadows. Good morning. The blame game has started. What's behind these latest cuts? The blame game has started, Mel. The Federal government is saying that it's the fault of the exchange rate which certainly is a factor. The opposition is pointing to the carbon tax which probably isn't. These job cuts had been on the cards for some time, certainly before the carbon tax came into effect. The root of this, people aren't buying enough of their this, people aren't buying enough of their cars. They were producing 209 cars a day. That will be scaled back to 148 and there is simply no way they can maintain the same sized workforce as they did have with those sorts of numbers. So unfortunately, 440 jobs have to go. Yeah. And then that means 440 families affected by this. People's - people's story, their individual stories is what breaks your heart. How have they all reacted? A terrible blow for the workers here, they are not especially surprised. Things have been heading in this direction for some time. A lot of them are left with nowhere to go. They are car industry workers, it's not as though any other car manufacturers are expanding and manufacturers are expanding and put people on. It's likely that they are going to have to an entirely new industry to work in. They have got some tough times ahead. The way this is going to work, the car maker will be offering voluntary redundancies in an effort to get those 440 workers from here and if they don't get enough, then they are going to have to do some forced sackings. Mel. Yes. Bigger picture, Nick, another blow to an industry that we know is already struggling, what is the future do you think and what have you heard for car manufacturing in this country? Look, the concern is, we were talking about Ford today. But the Look, the concern is, we were just concern is this is the can airy in the coal mine for the the coal mine for the Australian auto industry. They are talking now that perhaps this is the Ford fral con making its way to an con making its way to con making its way con making its con making that perhaps this is the Ford fral that perhaps this is the Ford

Falcon. The workers said " Falcon. The workers said "we make a great car but nobody's buying it." There is talk the company may replace it with the American made Ford. As a side note to this, That I government - is sending a Ford. As a side note to this, the delegation over here to try and lure the car parts makers to come up shops over there. This up shops over there. This effects more than the car makers. There are the car parts makers to come and set

many other suppliers. As you say, this is just six months after the Federal government gave over $ Federal government gave over $100 million to save jobs and it does cht seem to have worked. Yeah The industry is in the spotlight, even the cars we make. Nick, thank you for the update. The unrest over violence in Sydney's Kings Cross has hit boiling point. With every bar and club in the notorious party strip to be audited over the next few days, a crisis meeting with key stakeholders was held overnight. It comes after 18-year-old Thomas Kelly was killed by a king hit in an unprovoked attack. Federal Liberal MP Malcolm Turnbull has been putting pressure on the State Government to resolve the chronic violence. And he joins us now from Kings Cross. Good morning. Are you happy with the outcome from last night's talks? Are they a step in the right direction. It's definitely a step in the right direction. It's great that George Sauris was there not. He has already taken action. I think the meeting was particularly helpful. It showed the State Government and of course the city government, the depth of feeling in the community. There were well over 600 people, most of them residents of this area at the meeting a demanding stronger action. You have to remember that this is a party strip, that's true but it's also home for thousands of people, David. Yes. King cross is you're electorate, you blame the State Government for a lot of the on the strip. Why? Because a lot of the criticism in the past has been Government for a lot of the problems

directed at the city council, the fact they are too slow to put up the CCTV cameras and the like. David, I haven't been blaming State Government, that's not right. The problems here have developed David, I haven't been blaming the

over a very long period of time and I think there is plenty of blame to go around. At the core of it is this: Both state and city governments have had policies to get more people to live in the city and more people want to live in the city. So there are many more families living here, many more people living here than used to be the case but at the same time, there has never been - there has been a big increased in licenced premises in the capacity of those-licenced premises and the hours in which they trade. So the whole set up here is designed to attract lots and lots of people hour here to get drunk very, very late at night. Yet, the last train stops at 1. train stops at 1.44 am. So you get thousands of people here drunk and tired and can't get out. You wonder why you've got problems, David. OK. So, that's transport is one solution. What other solutions would you like to see put in place? We need more CCTV cameras. I think

we need to see more police on the street although I recognise the police are facing constrained resources. They do an outstanding job here. One of the issues that to be addressed is enforcing the responsible service of alcohol job here. One of the issues that has

rules, more fick effectively, Don weather burn spoke about that last night. But there is a big issue about the concentration of so many huge licence ADHD premises here. Now, huge licence ADHD premises here. huge licence ADHD premises huge licence ADHD huge licence huge licenced premises here. Terrific point. Yeah. And the auditing of the clubs and bars I think is a real step in the direction - right direction as you say. Malcolm Turnbull, thank you for joining us. I appreciate your time. Rdgets Let's take a look from the chopper with Justin Bieber's car arriving, just arriving now.

The decision to slash hundreds of jobs from two Ford plants in Victoria is expected to impact other areas of the supply chain. 440 jobs were slashed yesterday, leaving workers upset and worried about their future.
