I'm so lucky.

Well done, Pia.
I so could've messed up.

Phew! That was lucky. He moved here when he was 10,
thank goodness. Born in 1949 in London, England, and moved to Australia
when he was 10 years of age and became just one
of our greatest ever entertainers. Congratulations, Pia.

An oversized truck has again caused major damage on the M5. The Penrith Panthers player dump after an appalling attack on a pizza delivery driver. Rising power prices slammed by the Auditor General, how he plans to fix your bills. And Camilla tells of the heartache after the loss of her mother. Good evening. President Obama has won a second term in the White House with a resounding victory over Republican Mitt Romney. It was tipped to be one of the tightest elections in US history but President Obama proved dominant. So far he has won 303 electoral votes to Romney's 206. Robert Penfold is with Obama supporters in Chicago and Denham Hitchcock is it in camp Romney. -- is in.C NN projects President Obama will win. President Obama has been re-elected. They said it would be close but they were wrong.Tonight in this election, you, the American people, reminded us that while our Road has been hard, while our journey has been long, we have picked ourselves up, we have fought our way back, and we know in our hearts that for the United States of America the best is yet to come.I have just called President Obama to congratulate him on his victory. His supporters and his campaign also deserve congratulations. I wish all of them well, but particularly the President, the First Lady, and their daughters. This is a time of great challenges for America and I pray that the President will be successful in guiding our nation.All over the world right now the President of the United States has been re- elected. As predicted the battleground states held the key. He will be the winner in Iowa. And as those must win States started falling Obama's way it was game over. When the American networks called it for Obama the President Tweeted:

Along with this photo of him and his wife, Michelle, now the most popular Tweeted in history. After an emotional final speech in Iowa his day started in Chicago with an unscheduled stop to thank volunteers and a last ditch very personal appeal.As high, this is President Obama. How are you?He looked relaxed and he took time out of his traditional basketball game, he even had praise for his opponent. I want to say to Governor Romney, congratulations on a spirited campaign.Mitt Romney, not quite as relaxed, did not waste a moment. After casting his vote he hit the road again. In the end it was not enough. Getting Americans to the polling booth is difficult at the best of times, and in storm battered New York these are certainly not the best of times.We had to. This is what we're supposed to do. Life goes on.Thousands queued in the cold at makeshift polling stations determine for their voices to be heard. Superstorm Sandy in the end determined out to be one of Obama's bigger supporters. Expect the President to be back at work within days. But tonight it is time to enjoy the party. -- Big his supporters. What a party it is, we can go to Robert Penfold at Obama headquarters.Jubilant scenes. It is all happening now. Here we have the President and his family on stage here. He has just finished his speech and he is out there with the family, the relatives, Joe Biden, the vice-president as well, a real celebration going on here. Even as the President spoke he did say that we will celebrate but only tonight because tomorrow he's going back to work. He has got a lot to six here. There are even a lot of people in this room, a lot of strong Democrats, people that voted for him, who are disillusioned with the way that he ran America for the last four years. They feel he could have done a good job and he missed many opportunities, even though he did get the troops out of Afghanistan and Iraq. He said, yes, we will have a party tonight. As they are here, enjoying this event. But at the same time he said they will get back to work to try to get the whole nation together again. What was odd years during this campaign, it was a very divided nation. -- obvious. A divided nation between the haves and the have-notss. Romney had alienated many of the American people here, talking about 47 %. The President even promised he would get on with Mr Romney and speak to him to get things sorted. This is it tonight, the party is going on tonight, but tomorrow for the President, his staff, it's back to work. Peter. Well done, Robert Penfold. Now for a complete contrast, let's go to Denham Hitchcock with Mitt Romney's supporters. How are they coping? The difference here could not be any clearer, Pique. Earlier there was a band, cheering and dancing, when the early states were coming in they were rolling in red but soon it became clear they did not have the numbers in those key states, they started to turn blue, it slipped away and the crowd went silent. The band packed up and soon we have the acceptance speech, but the analysis will go on for weeks and months. The exit polls are showing women and non-whites turned out in huge numbers to leave the challenger, Mitt Romney, thinking about his future.OK, thank you for joining us. Let's go to the rest of the day's news and there's been a major accident on the M5 motorway, and oversized truck slamming into the roof of these down tunnel. All city-bound lanes are closed overnight. -- the eastbound tunnel. What is the latest?Eastbound traffic around Beverly Hills is backed up for five kilometres because of the accident. All eastbound lanes were closed when a truck hit a beam on the roof of the M5 tunnel, emergency response crews say the damage is so bad they have simply got no choice but to close the lanes for the rest of the night. It's going to be a very long journey home for motorists. Interestingly the same thing happened last Thursday when an oversize truck actually took out a sprinkler system on the roof of the tunnel. So this is the second time in a week that thousands of drivers have been inconvenienced by truck drivers not obeying the rules. Thank you for joining us. The Penrith Panthers have sacked a player involved in a vicious attack of an elderly pizza delivery driver. Jake Galvin has admitted robbing a 77 year-old man, who had taken up a delivery job to make ends meet. Jake Galvin Leeds headquarters for the last time, just 18, he has learned that his career as a footballer is over -- leaves.His contract has been terminated.His past had caught up with him, on Monday at a Gold Coast court he pleaded guilty to bashing and Robin Arthur Taylor, the 77 year-old pizza delivery driver in July last year.I was hit on the right side of my face just below the jaw. Isaak taken to, the Wests Tigers junior, was jailed for five years. Jake Galvin got a suspended sentence and immediately jumped on Facebook to talk about returning.

Strapped to a stretcher and barely breathing, doctors are waiting for the 28-year-old victim as he is taking into Westmead hospital. Rhodes a Crime Scene stretching 200 metres.

They are looking for links between this morning's shooting and the death of Faalau Pisu.

We make an appeal to members of the public that anybody who may know anything should come forward.It's a disturbing picture, electricity company profits are up $100 million in the last year, while power bills are rising even though we're using less. That's what the Auditor General has found and he has a bold plan to help Sydney families. Owning a lighting shop in Campbeltown gives Anne Parnham a unique perspective on rising power bills and how best to lower them. They are turning their lights and air-conditioning off and making sure things are not on standby and it's affecting many people.This on the same day the Auditor General found state owned power companies recorded an after-tax profit of $1.2 billion.The wholesale prices are down. But the retail prices are up.The average annual Sydney bill is now $2,230, an increase of 80 % in five years. But we using less, while more is being spent on polls and wires. The State Government is also taking a big share in taxes and dividends.The dividends are needed to keep schools, hospitals and police stations operating. Cracking down on overtime costs and cutting fat from power company management are two things the Auditor General and the premier agree on. Then there's the suggestion of having a smartphone app that tells customers when it's a good idea to turn off are needed for appliances because you could make a big saving at a time of peak demand.
