With the images do not show - the 30 passengers and the driver getting off safely.There was a bit of panic. It was very dangerous.In the end the fire brigade put out the blaze, but not before it destroyed the reception of the bus. Transport investigators will now look to try and find the cause of this fire and see whether it is can -- whether it is connected with other fires that have damaged buses in previous months. Today's emergency involved the DC power -- a diesel-powered bus. The union says they should be included in a fit out of fire protection programs. Let's get serious about safety.

The future of the Nine Network is in the balance tonight as bankers and management try to thrash out a last-minute deal to prevent the business from falling into bankruptcy. We go live to Albert -- Finance Editor. What is the latest? The latest is that the talks between management and the Danes were suspended around an hour ago. It is my understanding that Gordon Sacks was given a new deal today which would see it end up with $100 million worth of shares in the business. They have suspended the talks for the day and we think about it overnight. If there is no deal done in the next day or so, the company built up and up in administration.

Today, the company is worth billions less than it was bought for. CDC has been wiped out. Its former boss sacked. The banks control the future of the company. Everyone is trying to get the upper hand. The management and directors will be back into a corner at some stage. Despite all the publicity about it going broke, D one thing that is less likely is that your screens will turn black.Channel 9 is highly profitable after the interest bill is deducted. That is the reason why bankers and other investors have been queuing up to buy, but only at the right price. But not James Packer, the man who sold the company. He seems content with his casino assets. If there is no deal between the bankers, nine will and administration.We are doing our best.There are risks.

She may be on a state visit to India but that hasn't stopped Julia Gillard taking a swipe at Tony Abbott in Indonesia. She has branded the opposition leader a coward for failing to raise his asylum seeker policy with the country's leader. Tony Abbott stepping onto the world stage for a meeting with the infusion -- Indonesian President. 30 minutes face to face at the presidential palace. They discussed asylum seekers, but like last time they met, the standard did not raise turning back the boats, a policy unpopular in Jakarta.This is a very cowardly approach from Mr Abbott. He beat his chest at home but when he is overseas he does not have the guts to raise them.The sensitive subject was sidelined to a meeting between Jordi Bishop, Scott Morrison and the Indonesian Foreign Minister.There is any one question that matters and that wasn't raised.Julia Gillard is on a state visit to New Delhi. She will meet the Prime Minister and the Indian President tomorrow.

A man accused of pointing a blinding laser at a police helicopter faced Campbelltown court today. What happened? He only appeared in court very briefly and he didn't answer any questions as he left. His lawyer told the magistrate that it was like he would plead guilty when he next appeared before the court. He is accused of fly it -- firing the laser at the helicopter in May, potentially causing harm to the helicopter and the person inside of it. He is going to undergo a treatment program for somebody with drug or alcohol problems as part of his bail conditions. It is not the first time that the police helicopter has come under attack from laser beams. These are pictures that we can show you that it captured in 2010 as it flew over all them.

A celebrated yacht designer from Sydney's Northern Beaches has been found dead in the Philippines. Joe Adams was famous for his yachts which raised in the Sydney to Hobart in the 1980s.He was an inspiration to many people and he was a mentor to many people in the yachting community.Authorities are investigating the his death is linked to a financial dispute. Craig Thomson has come out swinging, speaking publicly for the first time about civil claims lodged against him. If the allegations that he used union funds to pay for prostitutes are proved, he may have to fork out close to $1 million in fees, fines and compensation. The allegations suggest Craig Thomson is morally bankrupt. Now, the fight to clear his name could send him broke.I am responsible for much bigger fees and we will be fighting these matters.Fair Work Australia is seeking compensation over claims he used the Health Services Union credit card to pay for prostitutes. This time he will not have the Labor Party to fund his defence.Given that they have already paid $300,000 for what has happened so far, it will be more than that, closer to $400,000.The fee loses he could face a further $450,000 in fines and compensation.

He has already had a small wind - Fair Work Australia conceding some of their claims are to world to be brought up in court. Is there any truth to the allegations?Of course not.We are more likely to see a federal election before we see a Federal Court ruling. Four days ago it was snowing, today the mercury soared to 34 degrees. Their extreme spring weather took a turn towards summer today and Sydney siders took full advantage.

From rain and winds to fire and snow, Sydney is fast becoming known as the place of extremes. The forecasters say these conditions are not unusual for spring. As we revelled in the heat, a warning about being prepared for the dangers that come with it.We have to go over the bushfires survival plan today.It tragedy can happen and the best way to avoid it is to prepare.But the hot tip at the moment - so it all up while you can.

Water temperatures were 17.5 degrees on the beaches and 18 degrees in the harbour. It will stay very warm tonight. It could still be 24 degrees at midnight and I'll be back a little later with the full look ahead. Coming up: Who killed this man? A mother's desperate plea for help.

It was then sold and not down. According to Sydney Water, the taps were running. On Friday they did it again.I got a bill for a house that didn't exist twice. This is proof that Sydney Water still has a problem dealing with its customers. At a time with the State Government has confirmed that it has cut the amount of money they spend fixing up or replacing faulty meters.200,000 families are you get estimated bills. I suggest they check their bills.Highly embarrassed, the company refused to be interviewed but blamed the Department of lambs for the latest mistake and says cases like this are rare.

While everyone's predicting a showdown of the fast bowlers in the Test series against South Africa, Michael Clarke doesn't totally agree. He says that spinner Nathan Lyon will be a crucial member in his squad. While the South Africans will bring suitcases of challenges, Michael Clarke is already ahead of them. Today he unveiled a trunk he helped design in Paris. A Luis Vuitton one-off, the mother and father of trunks. It will be auctioned off. Its conservative value - $170,000. This is for the people who thought I would take this into the changeroom. That won't be happening. Michael Clarke and wife Kylie visited the youngsters the money raised will benefit most.Stay positive. Keep smiling.Definitely. While everyone is talking up the quicks for the test series, Michael Clarke says spinner Lions Lynn will get his chance.He's done a great job. He will play a huge part. The South Africans arrive and it's the number one test nation in the world. They ripped that mantle off England and when they take on the Aussies, they are expecting to move further ahead. Both team also be aggressive - it makes them tick.I think it will be about the batteres; about which top six can adapt better. The new Roosters football boss, Brian Canavan says Sonny Bill William also be a welcome addition. None of us were inside Canterbury at that time. Canavan returned to the club yesterday after Steve Noyce was sacked. If the Socceroos struggled to climb advertising to the heat of Qatar, spare a thought for their opponents. Iraq played in icy temperatures in Sweden four days ago. They lost 6-0. They remain upbeat. Their coach says the Australian team is past its best. Saia Faingaa and Dom Shipperley have been added to the Wallabies' list. There was better news with dp drew Mitchell and WycliffPalu returning. Jockey Damien Oliver was in no mood to talk about the illegal betting allegations in Melbourne. Gai Waterhouse has the favourite in Saturday's race.
