(generated from captions) response to the Royal Commission. Cardinal George Pell's defensive response to the Royal The M4 blocked for 9 kilometres after a major truck crash. Two premiers give evidence against powerbrokers who ruled Labor. Bargains galore - Sydney's one-day pre-Christmas shopping frenzy. The inspirational family story behind Michael Clarke's double century. Good evening. The head of the Catholic Church in Australia has created fresh controversy by questioning how much a Royal Commission will help the victims of child sex abuse. Cardinal George Pell says he welcomes the inquiry, but resent suggestions the church covered up crimes against children. A Royal Commission is looming, but the Sex Crimes Squad is acting now. St Patrician Brothers, Blacktown. In the late 1980s, an allegation it was here that Brother Martin Harmata committed the ultimate breach of trust. Indecently assaulting two 13-year-old boyss. A former Catholic teacher who worked at the college and a primary school in Lalor Park has been charged with sexually assaulting a 13-year-old boy and an 8-year-old girl.It will be alleged that a number of incidents occurred on school grounds at those schools.The arrest drew a clipped response from Cardinal George Pell. He is the most senior Catholic in the country. Very sad, apologise to the victims. Cardinal George Pell supports the Royal Commission, because he says it will not focus only on the church.I don't think we should be scapegoated. We will answer for what we have done. We are not trying to defend the indefensible. Detective Inspector Peter Fox is claiming a police cover-up of sex abuse in the Catholic Church.So many of those criminals are operating knowing that their friends, knowing that their organisation, to protect their name and reputation will cover-up what they have done.Cardinal George Pell waved a folder detailing the rules that churches and schools must adhere to when reporting sexual abuse.I certainly very much regret the general smearing, I might say, the church's covering up. The church has done nothing. Watching Cardinal George Pell's media conference, Anthony and Christine Foster - their daughters were raped by a priest.Disgusted. Very offensive.Very offensive. Just a smear campaign. The church should be in fear of actually being found out for what they have done. Brian Crowley, abused by a Catholic Church 50 years ago says it's not too late for a Royal Commission.At least it's something, someone is finally going to listen to us. We might get a chance to tell the people the real story of what happened. And that is what has to be told. It has to come from us. It can't come from anybody else.Let's go live to Mike Burrows. This was an opportunity for Cardinal George Pell to back the Royal Commission, but he made comments taking people by surprise.Yes. He started off the media conference by saying he welcomed the Royal Commission, but seemed to qualify that. He said that while the church had nothing to hide, in the same breath he said if a priest confesses to another priest of committing child sexual abuse, the sanctity of the confession should reand the information should not be revealed -- should remain and the information should not be to authorities. Some may think that is contradictory.Thousands of drivers have been stuck in traffic gridlock after three accidents on the M4. The worst at Merrylands, where three trucks and a car collided, sparking a major rescue. Midday on the M4 and traffic was at a halt.I'm praying that no-one is hurt. It's scary.A truckie was trapped after slamming into a semiwhich jackknifed - some saying it was trying to a-- semi which jack-knifed, some saying it was trying to avoid another vehicle. They were trying to pull him off. The 45-year-old suffered serious injury, trapped for 40 minutes before being taken to Westmead Hospital. Lunchtime traffic on a busy motorway was at a standstill, banking back 9 kilometres. Gridlock in surrounding streets. Rescuers could not avoid the chaos. Drivers say this is a notorious Black spot on the M4. There are five planes of traffic, a major entry -- five lanes of traffic, a major entry and exit. And no breakdown lane.People want to turn right to get to Merrylands, the left lain ending. The M4 opened after four hours, police are piecing together how it happened. Loads of dirty Labor Party laundry have been aired at The Independent Commission Against Corruption. Let's go thrive to Wild Life Sydney Zoo. An unprecedented move from two former -- to Kevin Wilde. From two former Premiers. Yes, there were concerns about the power that Eddie Obeid held. And the highly unusual style of Ian Macdonald as a Minister. It's a welcome distraction for Barry O'Farrell as Labor eats itself alive, reminding people of the level of corruption. You are not seeing things, Morris Iemma and Nathan Rees are smiling. The two Labor premiers were victims of manoeuvrings of Eddie Obeid, and Ian Macdonald, so are taking delight in the trouble of their one-time foes.The Labor Party has seen better days.A lot Bert.The Independent Commission Against Corruption is looking at whether Eddie Obeid and his family made a windful by a decision of Ian Macdonald to allow mining in Bylong Valley.This is distressing for branch members. Into Nathan Rees is vindicated, after sacking macted from the ministry after becoming concerned that he was -- Ian Macdonald from the ministry after becoming concerned he was not scrutinising his decisions.I was concerned.Kristina Keneally will not give evidence. She won the premiership with the support of Ian Macdonald, and Eddie Obeid. The inquiry will pick apart how the potentially shadey deal was done. An elderly couple has been injured after a 200kg oil tank fell from the side of a home in Turramurra in Sydney's north. The tank trapped the 90-year-old man and 90-year-old woman for 29 minutes. They remain in a serious condition in hospital. Arson is suspected after fire destroyed up to 50 cars at a wreckers yard in Revesby. It took fire crews 90 minutes to control the blaze, with water pressure adding to the problems. The yard is a crimescene. Sydney commuters are about to experience a controversial plan to fix our peak-hour train chaos. Rail marshalls will handle crowd control - getting passengers on and off in 60 seconds. This is the peak hour morning crush at Town Hall station. Commuters jostle for a spot on the platform, let alone on the train.Sometimes you can't get on a train because people don't move all the way in.In Tokyo they hire staff to literally push commuters on to carriages.Here in Sydney RailCorp decided it's time for serious crowd control.81,000 people come through here in the busy hour in the morning. This is like a sell-out Crows add ANZ Stadium.From Monday hoards of these guys will line the platform at Town Hall. There'll be one guard per train door, to help manage the worst of it. Trains will stop for no longer than 60 seconds between the hours of 7 and 8:30. It's not a lot of time to get 1200 passengers on and off the train. RailCorp says it's necessary. Passengers are not yet convinced.60 Seconds is too little to get on to a train, especially with people controlling it.A trial of the system will run for four weeks. US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton land lands in Perth ahead of high-level meetings on foreign policy and defence.I'm looking forward to meeting with Hillary Clinton again. We have had the opportunity to meet on a number of occasions and spend time together.There was high security as Hillary Clinton's motorcade of 11 cars sped through the city's streets. Damien Oliver faces an 8- 12 month ban from racing after being charged with illegal betting. The champion jockey admitted to putting $10,000 on a rival horse in 2010. Damien Oliver has been stood down immediately pending a hearing next week. Some of Sydney's biggest retailers are joining forces to kick-start the Christmas season - holding a one-day supersale, hoping to set a shopping record. 24 hours, a million shoppers, more than $10 million. It's a delicious equation on the eve of the Christmas shopping season.We want to showcase the local wares and alert Australian shoppers that Australian retailers are capable of doing amazing deals.It's called Click Frenzy, a one-day spree for online shoppers.We are seeing 50% off fashion, up to 80% off jewellery. It takes a lead from America's 'Cyber Monday', heeled the day after Thanksgiving in November -- held the day after thanks giving in November. Now the biggest shopping day.It's the largest shopping day. We are trying to capture the spirit and excitement in Australia.Here, as many as 150 retailers signed up. We recognise the majority of online customers are bricks and mortar. They are most valuable. Melissa Grant doesn't care what it's called. It's all about convenience. Time I have with my kids I want to spend with kids, not traipsing to shops. Some of the biggest retailing names have joined the campaign, like Westfield, Myer, Sportscraft, Saba, and you have Dan Murphy, Target. Now, these are traditional retailers that moved aggressively into the online world. They are doing it for a good reason - that is that word - prosperity. Save the date - 7pm, next Tuesday for 24 hours. Australian cricket captain Michael Clarke set a new record, scoring 259 not out at the Gabba. Roz Kelly is there. Good evening. An emotional performance for Michael Clarke and his family.Good evening. Yes, Michael's incredible performance shows how focused he has been. Today his family revealed he's been hurting a lot from the loss of his grandmother earlier this year. Now Clarke was overseasing and missed her funeral. It was hard -- overseas playing and missed her funeral, which was hard for him. They are a close family. His dad and grandfather watched the match and said that they thought it was something bearing down on Michael. And this performance was for her.He looked at the air. I anticipate it was for her. It's a big step in the family side of things.Same seat, no-one moves or goes to the toilet. We do more work out here than he does out there.He conducts himself equally as well off the field as on the field. You can't ask for any more in life.Now, Pete, Michael has been named Man of the Match for the opening test. We will have all the highlights from a fiery final day coming up shortly, with Ken in sport. Good on you, Roz. Thank you.

When you hit the bone,
start carving horizontally.

A high in the south has been clearing skies across the country's south-east. A weak trough is approaching. Tomorrow the system should deliver a few showers to South Australia and Victoria. Mainly along the coast. Cairns will be cloudy with showers - not ideal for the eclipse.

We may pick up a shower or two in Sydney. Isolated showers across the region.

Showers seeing Sydney through the working week, heaviest on Thursday.
