(generated from captions) Hello and welcome
to this special edition of Sunrise, live from the Sydney Opera House
for our exclusive Coldplay concert.

The biggest band in the world.

This program is captioned live. MELISSA DOYLE: A judge gives
troubled actor Matthew Newton a second chance after his trouble in Miami. But there's a catch. Police promise an intensive review after officers are slammed for the
death of a man tasered 14 times. The Damien Oliver
betting investigation implicates 10 more jockeys.

While bookies stop paying winnings Baths, hairdos and TV time - the PM's partner opens up
about life in the Lodge. (SING 'PARADISE') # Para, para, paradise

# Oh, oh
Para, para, paradise # The world's biggest band
takes over Sunrise. Right across Australia,
this is the TV event of the year.

Coldplay live on a special edition of Sunrise, with Kochie and Mel.How good is that! good is that!? Welcome to Sunrise. It is going to be one of those special Sunrise days as Coldplay joins us. Four songs, 12 cameras, choppers and that for a backdrop. Amazing.Brilliant, look at the fans, they got here very, very early, it was still dark. To get prime position. They are very excited. Posters, T-shirts all ready to go. It is going to be a fantastic morning.700 lucky viewers are joining us here but you have the best seat in the house. With a backdrop look that, stay with us throughout the morning, you are in for a treat, but first the news.

Good morning. Matthew Newton has been ordered to pay a US hotel clerk
$11,000 in damages over a scuffle at a Miami hotel. The troubled actor
was arrested in April over claims he punched
the clerk in the face during an argument over
mobile phone reception. The charges will be dismissed
as long as he apologises and completes 50 hours
of community service. We're very pleased that the case
is going to be dismissed and this chapter is over.

He will also have to complete
an anger management course but was given credit
for his time in rehab. Barack Obama has held
his first press conference

The use of police tasers
is under scrutiny in two states following separate
coronial inquests. The NSW Coroner has slammed
five Sydney police who tasered Brazilian student
Roberto Curti 14 times before he died, in March. The victim's family says a review
into taser use isn't enough. The family and our lawyers
also believe that charges for certain criminal
offences should be laid. And the Queensland Coroner
wants all tasers fitted with cameras following the 2009 death
of Antonio Galeano. Former prime minister Paul Keating
has slammed Julia Gillard over foreign policy saying Australia is too heavily
influenced by the United States. Mr Keating says the Government has sacrificed
a closer relationship with our Asian neighbours by bowing to the US. I mean, look at our relationship
with Indonesia - it has no structure,
it's had no coherence, it's full of transactional issues
like live cattle exports and refugee management. Mr Keating suggests the Government should boost ties
with Malaysia and Indonesia. And Mr Keating's criticism comes as US Secretary of State
Hillary Clinton, visits Australia. She's in Adelaide today. We'll get a live report after 7:00
on Sunrise. Racing clubs have withheld
almost $600,000 of Nathan Tinkler's winnings
to offset his debts. Clubs in both Sydney and Melbourne
have reportedly taken prize money while Tinkler's Patinack Farm
has also asked Racing Queensland to send winnings to creditors. The mining magnate owed the
Australian Turf Club almost $190,000 while the Melbourne Racing Club
took action over $400,000 in sponsorship debts.

Coming up -
responsible or disturbing? The Olympic shooter facing criticism for letting his 4-year-old
fire a gun.

Thank you, Nat. Wall Street is well down this morning on concerning about the budget debt inUS. Although President Obama, in the last 15 minutes, has come out and said he believes the fiscal cliff is solvable. Thank goodness, President, now get to work and do it.

European markets are down as production figures fell. To our region yesterday:

Consumer confidence
reached its highest level in just under two years. The index has risen 7.8%
in the past three months and is 8.5% higher than a year ago. Savanth Sebastian is at CommSec.
Morning. Good news for retailers
leading up to Christmas

Even though we were talking about business figures yesterday, bosses are still in the doldrums, looks like consumers are getting more optimistic, good news in the lead-up to Christmas?It couldn't have come at a more timely juncture just weeks out from the Christmas spending season. Good news for bosses. It will translate to higher retail activity and businesses feeling more profitable. It was an encouraging result. We have seen consumer confidence rise for three consecutive months and all five subparts of the index picked up. It is early days but the signs are very encouraging. The Reserve Bank would be comfortable to hold off on a rate cut in December and concentrate on early next year if the strength continues for the coming weeks.Do you have a favourite Coldplay song? Look, Kochie, I'd have to say the one with those elephants in the background.Yep.He's been watching the promo.'Paradise' that is, thank the promo.'Paradise' that is, thank you, Savanth. They will sing that today, get back to your charts. Savanth will be rocking out with that today! Hey!

in Australia's 2-1 victory
over South Korea just 24 hours after his call-up
to the team. A spate of injuries
forced Cornthwaite's inclusion and the Korean-based Socceroo
didn't disappoint, breaking the deadlock
in the 88th minute. Former Socceroos player and coach
Frank Farina says he'd love to take the reins
of Sydney FC following the shock departure
of Ian Crook. Farina joins former Chelsea boss
Avram Grant as well as 1-time Melbourne
Victory coach Ernie Merrick to throw his hat into the ring. And Benji Marshall's manager
has declared he will seek a release from the
West Tiger's playmaker's contract to pursue a stint in Japanese rugby
union next summer. It comes in the wake of Sonny
Bill Williams returning to the NRL which has set a new precedent
in the game's rules. Promoting his world title fight
with Daniel Geale yesterday, Anthony Mundine rubbished claims
Sonny Bill's been disloyal. Sonny's like me.

We're Mr Entertainment, man. We bring entertainment,
we bring excitement. They love us or hate us,
they're gonna watch and respect us. Mundine's rematch with Geale
will take place on January 30.

As well as sport, we will have a full upitate on the ferry timetable to see which is running on time. I wonder if they plan their journey to work this morning to time it with Coldplay. If you were smart, 7:00 37.Yep, viva luveeda.We had a massive cruise liner this morning going past, good morning! Grant is roaming the crowds? Not yet.Will be. Just soaking up what will be a tremendous location to have a concert. What a backdrop, we're talking 55 million albums and seven Grammies, these guys know how to turn it on. It will be one of the most anticipated events of the year, particularly on our show, four Coldplay songs, we are going to cover them from down on the ground, on the stage and follow them as they arrive under police escort later. The skies are a little threatening this morning. There is a brief shower expected. Hopefully it has gone and it will clear to a nice 26 degrees. But it will be one hell of a show. a show.. Let's look at the forecast around Australia.

Sunrise weather brought to you by new non-drowsy easy-to-swallow

This is Sunrise across Australia. Coming up -
the long road to recovery. We check on the condition
of two koalas rescued
from South Australia's bushfires. But next, the fans are arriving as we get ready
for our Coldplay concert. See the band exclusively on Sunrise,

We've got people from Tamworth, Melbourne, Adelaide, all over the place. We just got the start of the set list in here? Very good. Coldplay will debut, performing their debut hit 'Yellow', live, as well as a number of their other biggest songs. We will keep you updateed as they come to hand. Just sorting it out now.

Coldplay will be performing
their debut hit 'Yellow' live as well as a number
of their other biggest songs. The band has sold more
than 55 million albums and is on tour to promote their
latest offering, 'Mylo Xyloto'.

We'll have them how you actually pronounce that.

Fifi and Grant have been among
the excited fans. Fifi, how is everyone feeling?

This is where the boys are going to come. Undeniable they are here on stage, Coldplay, their touring cases, part of their tour going around Australia. You got to throw your mind back 12 sinces 'Parachutes' came out and the first single, 'Yellow'. It has been the soundtrack to our lives, think how many songs they pumped out. Of course, their biggest song in Australia has been their recent one. It is huge. They just get it. That's what I like. Yes, their songs are huge and uplifting and powerful and take you to another place but they are such down-to-earth guys. There is no pretentiousness about them and they are true showmen.Take it you checked out their rider and are all they asked for is Vegemite toast and a cup of tea. Is it jellybeans?And they are healthy.I think that is why Aussies like them.

Coming up - in the firing line - the Olympian who says it's OK to

here at the Sydney Opera House.

We had people arriving from midnight from Geelong.You can't get anything more iconic than the Sydney Opera House. We really want to thank them. They have been fantastic. So cooperative in helping us with Coldplay for today. This week, the Opera House unveiled its summer program.

Over the next four months this
location will be transformed into an entertainment and culinary
hub day and night, inside and out. It's the ultimate playground
for locals and visitors. BLAZE is the must-see. Imagine 16 dancers moving
across the stage to Lady Gaga and Michael Jackson.

Or there's La Soiree with cabaret
and circus sideshows.

I love soirees.I know you do.

Tim Mathieson has revealed what life is like
as Australia's First Bloke. He's told the 'Herald Sun', he likes to look
after Julia Gillard. He runs her bath, fetches her
newspaper and blow dries her hair. And when the Prime Minister
is at work, Tim can be found on the couch,
watching her on the telly.

That's what you need in a bloke, someone to blowdry your hair and run your bath.So jealous.Don't you do it too, Beretts?Yep, for sure.He runs the bath.That's for the kids. I put the salts in, put some rose petals out.Really? When did you do it last?He read it in a magazine.I wish my husband could.Tell us the most romantic thing your partner does for you, in a normal sense of the word.My husband takes my car on a Sunday morning and fills it up with petrol. Then I don't have to stop at a service station at 4:00 in the morning and fill it up. I think it is romantic.Wow? If you can top that?Love at the bowser.

It's well known when most people don't know
the answer to something these days they just ask Google. The latest list of the most
frequently asked questions has been made public. And it makes quite bizarre reading.

What's the answer?Google it. What is love? Getting someone to pump your petrol is another one feely typed in.

And finally, how is babby formed,
complete with the typo, is also one of the most
Googled phrases.

Ask all the doctors and nurses.Love your views on this next topic.

Olympic gold medallist
Russell Mark has come under fire for letting his 4-year-old
shoot a gun. Mark won a gold medal in shooting
for Australia during the Atlanta Games. The video shows him helping his son
fire a shotgun at a target club. He says it's important
to educate him about weapons. My kids are exposed to firearms
every day of their lives, I wouldn't be acting responsibly
as a parent unless I made them aware
of how to use a firearm properly. Child protection experts say
it's a bit disturbing.

What do you think?You wouldn't think it would be any different, I mean farm kids learn how to shoot rifles and go hunting from a really early age.The uren withs when their children were young.Why don't you let him use a chainsaw as well?No, because I don't use a chainsaw.Or a car.But kids on farms do learn to drive cars way earlier than else else.Four? Yes, 11, 12, 13.OK you make the age 11 and it's OK.I say give him a chainsaw, cut down some trees on the farm.That could be our Olympic gold medallist there.What are these kayakers doing? You got a ticket?Excuse me! I'm telling everyone about Matthew Newton and his case. It has been dropped. The assault charges dismissed over a scuffle with a hotel Clark in Miami.

And fans arrive, as excitement builds for the
television event of the year. Sunrise and Huawei Ascend
present Coldplay Live.

But you got to is have a ticket.

So, did you get lucky? There was this one guy. There was this oneT

Our eyes met.
He offered me a special drink. Ooh, you look so hot tonight. "Like a sunrise." I whispered back, "Kiss me, Katut."

VOICEOVER: AAMI's Claim Assist app
relieves the stress of an accident by capturing exactly what happened. Something happened.
SONG: # Lucky you're with AAMI. #

Good morning. You are waking up to a magnificent view this morning. The Sydney Opera House, your ultimate summer destination.

We're standing by for Coldplay
to perform live and exclusive on Sunrise.

Limestone rock they describe their music as, in the past, rather than hard rock, limestone rock.We are going to learn lots from you, I have a feeling. Now for the news headlines.

Good morning. A US judge is dropping
assault charges against troubled actor
Matthew Newton after claims he punched
a hotel clerk in the face. Seven News US correspondent Angela
Cox joins me live from Miami. Ange, did he get off scott-free?

Good morning, Nat.

While it was a good result
for Matthew Newton - he could have been jailed
for almost a year -

They didened record a conviction which would have been problems for him visiting and working in the US. But he is not off the hook. To have the charges officially dropped he has to do 50 hours of community service, which he be do back in Australia. He has to pay $ Australia. He has to pay $11,500 to the hotel worker, the victim. As restitution he has to write a written letter of apology and stay clear of the hotel worker and also Mr Moe's, the restaurant where he had a scuffle with the police with refused to leave. If he doesn't do that one 100 days he could be back here for trial but it does seem a fresh start for the actor.

One person is missing after a fire
at a Gold Coast caravan park. The blaze started
in a demountable at Carrara at around 1:00 this morning. 100 people were evacuated
and a man remains unaccounted for. The building was destroyed but firefighters managed
to contain the blaze before it spread to other buildings. Residents reported hearing
a loud explosion before the blaze.

Barack Obama has held
his first press conference since being re-elected US President. He's responded to a scandal involving the former director
of the CIA and questions about whether
national security was put at risk. I have no evidence, at this point,
from what I've seen that classified information
was disclosed that in any way would
have had a negative impact on our nation's security. The President also spoke
about his plans to tackle the looming fiscal cliff. The NSW Police Commissioner
is defending the use of tasers despite a damning report
by the state's coroner. Brazilian student Roberto Curti died
after being tasered 14 times in March. Five officers
could now face charges. Meantime, in Queensland a coroner has cleared an officer
of any wrongdoing over the taser-related death
of Antonio Galeano. His family wants the weapons banned. They're going to keep killing people and they're going to keep
covering up their tracks. Convicted drug smuggler
Schapelle Corby's hopes of being home by Christmas have been crushed

after Indonesia suspended all parole
applications by foreign prisoners. Corby has been eligible
for parole since August but won't be able to apply until a review of the county's
immigration laws is complete. Corby's lawyers had hoped a loophole
in the country's immigration laws could allow her to return
to Australia early.

Finance news now. The Dow is softening as we

Down 119 points. Analysts say it is facing a wall of worry. A combination of the fiscal cliff in the US, the bombing in Gaza by the Israelis and also the issues in Greece are weighing on investor sentiment right round the world. To our region yesterday, our region

Time for sport. Matthew Hayden has called for
critics to lay off Ricky Ponting after his first test failure
against South Africa. Hayden told Seven News Ponting must play in the second test
in Adelaide and continue throughout the rest
of the series. I think he's gonna show Australia exactly why he's been one of
the greatest players on the planet for these last 20 years. Former Magpie Chris Dawes says he has the experience
to provide leadership to the Demons following his first training session
with his new club yesterday The 24-year-old also denied there are any hard feelings
between him and the Pies. I wouldn't imagine so. I haven't spoken to
too many people from the club but I can't see why there would be. Meanwhile, in Adelaide, the AFL has
laid three more charges on the Crows over the Kurt Tippett affair. And surfing star Jordy Smith says Joel Parkinson deserves to clinch
his maiden world title in Hawaii next month. The South African is in Australia promoting his new movie
'Bending Colours' The film hits cinemas next week.

And looks just fantastic. When we started doing music, you think about the biggest band in the world, who can we get here? And today is the reality of that. We have fame name at the beautiful Sydney Opera House, and GD is amongst it, you found the best location out there.The biggest band in the vurld, just ahead of VuNila Ice. No, these guys are legit. The world-class crew manning the station for the boys. If it was anything by the concert in Melbourne was to go by two nights ago, we are in for a heck of a show. Every member was given a wrist band that activated as the first number got under way. All the wrist bands activated. What followed boy a huge night of fun-filled songs and the boys having the time of their lives boys having the time of their lives. The boys having the time of their lives. The crowd are enjoying itch. Waiting for the boys to arrive, the fennel sets are under way.

Sunrise weather brought to you by new non-drowsy easy-to-swallow
Claratyne Liquid Capsules with pure liquid power. A low pressure trough is triggering
potentially severe thunderstorms in north-eastern New South Wales. Another trough in the west
is triggering storms from the WA south coast
to the tropics. A weak front
is bringing showers to Tasmania while a high directs showers onto
the tropical Queensland coast.

Coldplay reckon they have the best fans in the world. (CHEERING AND APPLAUSE) Is that true? You guys are just in for a real treat. We are all. Four epic songs, counting down, can't wait.Absolutely, Grant, because this is Sunrise live from the Sydney Opera House, the ultimate summer playground for everyone. This morning we are preparing for Coldplay and the television event of the year.

Also coming up -
it's gone right to the top. President Obama addresses
the growing sex scandal involving two top generals. Plus, the two koalas rescued See how they're recovering. But now it's time for a Fresh Food
Update from Woolworths with some news on beef.

We have done asparagus and mangoes. Tofu?

(JAUNTY MUSIC)
Thanks, guys. I've been a Woollies butcher
for 12 years so I know how to cook
a beautiful steak. Just add some oil
and season with salt and pepper and cook for the same time
on each side. To pick a great steak just look for the Meat Standards
Australia symbol. Here at Woollies, all our fresh beef
is 100% Australian. And remember, only turn it once. For more tips about barbecuing beef,

machine and its selection wheel, making coffee
has never been so entertaining.

That's clever.

About this time next hour, Coldplay
will be performing live on Sunrise. And you'll see it all
from the front row, at home.

Just like the crowd for Justin Bieber and One Direction.Subdued? Yes, high security, ticketed. Lucky ducks here but also lucky ducks at home, you will have a great view.

To the US now where President Barack Obama
has spoken out for the first time about the CIA sex scandal. Mr Obama was quick
to defend the work of the organisation's former
director David Petraeus, who resigned last week as details of
an extramarital affair went public. I want to emphasise that, from my perspective at least, he has provided this country
an extraordinary service. We are safer because of the work
that David Petraeus has done. is that he and his family
are able to move on and that this ends up
as a single side note on what has otherwise been
and extraordinary career. This scandal continues to deepen as a military commander
has also been implicated. The FBI uncovered hundreds
of emails between General John Allen and one of the women
at the heart of the scandal.

Actually sent photo of himself without his shirt on to the woman. It is extraordinary.

Dr Keith Suter joins us. Good morning, Keith.

This is like a John Lacary novel, all we need is for the woman to be a Russian agent.The President is denying there is denying there is any security implications. If Petraeus had remained as head of the CIA he would have been vulnerable to blackmail so he had to stand down. A wealthy socialite received anonymous e-mails telling her to keep away from David Petraeus. She went to her friends at the CIA, it sended with Paula Broadwell, who has been communicating privately with Mr Petraeus, but while the FBI have been going through 30,000 pages of documents, they come across the fact this wealthy socialite has been conducting her own adulterous affair with General Allen. Two high-profile generals, Petraeus has quit as head of the CIA. Alan is going to Europe as head of the NATO forces and finishing in gan so yes, two officers involved with two attractive women. It is like a novel.And the other woman who has the agents and FBI agents wrapped around her little finger has been sued from banks for not paying credit card bills and her mortgage. She is quite the socialite?She is and well connected. She deals directly with the FBI. The head of the FBI is spying on the CIA. That is an issue. But you have got soldiers who are still fighting and dying in Afghanistan. That is the worry for ordinary military people, the scandal going on in the US and meantime, there is a war to be fought in Afghanistan.Yes, '50 Shades of Shades of Camouflage'. Goodness me. Thank you, Kochie.

You might remember
earlier this week we brought you the story of a koala rescued from the ashes
of South Australia's bushfires. The animal was found clinging
to a burned-out tree stump after the flames had swept through. She's since been flown to Adelaide
and given a name, Marley. Now a second koala,
who's been named Narla, has joined her in intensive care. They're being cared for by the Australian Marine Wildlife
Research and Rescue Organisation. The president and founder
is Aaron Machado. Good morning. How are they both getting along
this morning?

Good morning, Mel. They're doing alright this morning. Last night we thought that Marly was going downhill but she has proven us wrong and is eating leaves, which is a wonderful sign.She is a tough little thing. How many more injured animals do you think are out there? We did fly in another one last night, which is to my left, night, which is to my left,obe only a baby bear, 1. a baby bear, 1.1 kilos. She has lost her mother. We have got Marly who lost her mum and Nahla, who is about two years old. How many more? Who knows. They are finding them up trees, they are finding them where it is inaccessible to get down. Hundreds more, not just koalas but hundreds of other Australian natives that are hurt.Can you show me? I can see someone asleep in a little basket to your right. And another one on your

This is Marly?Yes.Marly to our right. Next to Marly we have got... OK, she's not too bad. She was awake about 10 15 minutes ago, eating a leaf. Now the sun is up she will bunker down to go to sleep. Next to her, is Narla in the other cage.Oh! Marly is waking up!Hello, sweet. She's doing remarkably well, considering, what she and aall these other animals have gone through. They are still in a

stage, hence I have to keep my voice very quiet in here. We brought this clinic in just to deal with these guys. They need to be kept extremely quiet and isolated from the mainstream animals. This is set up as our triage bears for these K-bears to live in and get better until they can go outside.K-bears? That is is very cute. I am sorry we have got a camera in there with lights and microphones. We will clear out. Thank you, here is Nat.

In 12 years, Coldplay has sold
more than 55 million alums and will soon be performing
on this very stage. The band's on the way
to the Opera House for our exclusive Sunrise concert.

They are in transit for our exclusive concert.

Coldplay has been wowing audiences since their debut smash hit
'Yellow'. Their last Australian tour
was in 2009. Let's get more from
our Coldplay correspondents Fifi Box, Grant and Molly Meldrum. Fifi, you're with some excited fans?

It is electric here, Nat. And as you said, it is such a big band. They don't do gigs for just anyone. These are exclusive tickets. Everyone is pinching themselves because they can't believe they are here. The guys are on their way. It is so competing. Social media has been melting down the last few days after their Melbourne gig. It is huge! It is a count down now and it ilwith get more exciting.Grant, do we know what they will play?Yes, the set list has been released. We know the first song, I think is 'Yellow'. But after that I am not sure just yet. It is still Secret Squirrel. It is a venue fit for the world's biggest band and also fit for our Sunrise viewers. You told us we wanted Coldplay and we got them for four songs, half a concert. We are just outside their green room, right here. They have just drawn the curtains on the green room. I just poked my head up against the glass to see if there was anything unusual or part of their Rydeer, any personal requests before they perform. Sangas cut into quarters, some fresh juice. And the boys will walk out to see our prime minper stfs house.You are in such a secret location, the microphone is breaking up a bit. These guys are worldwide superstars. What sort of buzz will they get?They will be blown away. The way you have set it up, is able, right. Coming out is the live CD of 'Mylo Xyloto', right, which is incredible. But they will definitely put this somewhere.Why are they so special?) special? put this somewhere.Why are they so
special?(A), they are a great live band and Chris is a great frontman. But their songs, 'Paradise', 'Princess of China' with Rihanna, and 'Mylo Xyloto', we said years ago on Sunrise it was going to be major. And 'Paradise'. It goes on and on and on, you know.It does, Molly, can't wait. Thank you for joining us this morning. Wouldn't miss it. Fifi and Grant, thank you. Here is Mel and Kochie.Do you know they met, Chris Martin and Johnny met at O week in uni and started their band but they didn't sign their first deal until they finished their degree.Wow! Their O week was productive.

News is coming up. Then, did police act like thugs when they tasered a man
who later died? And should the weapons
be removed from officers? One of the country's top cops
answers the critics. Plus, it was a lie - the man who accused the voice
of Elmo of underage sex takes back his accusations. So why did he make
such a damaging claim? This is Sunrise across Australia and we're live from
the Sydney Opera House for Coldplay.

In the shadows of the harbour bridge, for Coldplay.

Showbiz editor Nelson Aspen
is in New York. Good morning. The voice of Elmo has been cleared
of underage sex allegations.

That's correct. Just as quickly as this very salacious story came to lite and developed, it is now over. The accuser, who would now be in his early 20s, has recanted the accusation through his lawyers and no further comment or explanation was given other than to say it wasn't true and their sexual relationships were after he was of legal age and were consensual. The 52-year-old accusey, puppeteer Keven Clash is out of the limelight. Of course, semi Street is standing behind him and the character of Elmo is now back on the show.You would sue the bloke. How can you make an accusation like that and say it is a lie? Destroy someone's life.I was going to say, it remains to be seen. The age difference and the fact there was a very emotional relationship between them may preclude any legal action.OK. Alright, can we end on a nice cheery note. Move over Ryan Gosling, tell me who the sexiest man alive is?I told you last week it is likely and now it is true, Channing Tatum is the man named as the sexiest man alive. The nice thing, he is nice, smart, a family man, that must all count for being sexy as much as hipecks.Thank -- as much as his pecks. Tank you very much, -- thank you very much.

Coldplay live on a special edition of Sunrise, with Kochie and Mel. Hello again, we are standing by for what promises to be a very special Sunrise event. Coldplay, live.The fans secured their spots here at the Sydney Opera House, they lined up early. The girls from Geelong got here at midnight.As Geelong girls do...

But you will have
the best seat at home with more than a dozen cameras
on the ground and in the sky, bringing you all the action. So let's get this hour underway with
the news of this Thursday, with Nat. Matthew Newton has been ordered to pay a US hotel clerk
$11,000 in damages over a scuffle at a Miami hotel. The troubled actor
was arrested in April over claims he punched
the clerk in the face during an argument
over mobile phone reception. The charges will be dismissed
as long as he apologises and completes 50 hours
of community service. We're very pleased that the case and this chapter is over. He will also have to complete
an anger management course but was given credit
for his time in rehab. One person is missing after
a fire at a Gold Coast caravan park. The blaze started in a demountable
at Carrara at around 1:00 this morning. 100 people were evacuated
and a man remains unaccounted for. The building was destroyed but firefighters managed
to contain the blaze before it spread to other buildings. Residents reported hearing
a loud explosion before the fire. Security is tight in Adelaide
this morning after the world's
most powerful woman jetted in as part of a whirlwind
Australian visit. Sunrise correspondent
Amanda Bachmann is in Adelaide. Amanda, what's on the agenda today
for the US Secretary of State? Well, she jetted in late last night. Her first port of call this morning is a courtesy call to Government house. But the main focus of her day will be a visit north-west of the city to the tech defence precinct. It is the most advanced ship-building facility. The Government here would like to convince the US to take out the US Pacific fleet maintenance here at Tech Port. The rest of her itinerary is under wraps. But there is speculation she will held out to Penfolds winery to sample some of the wines. One thing for sure, whenever she goes, security will be tight. There will be a team of security age nlts with her. There has been a security sweep of the city. She will stay here tonight and jet out to Singapore tomorrow.Thank you very much.

Barack Obama has held his first
press conference at the White House since being re-elected US President. He's revealed his plans
to tackle the looming fiscal cliff,

Right now, I want to make sure is the taxes on middle-class families don't go up. There is a very easy way to do that. We could get that done by next week.

Obama also addressed the sex scandal surrounding former CIA director
David Petraeus. He says there is no evidence
national security was put at risk. The use of police tasers
is under scrutiny in two states following two separate
coronial inquests. The Queensland Coroner wants
all tasers fitted with cameras. While in New South Wales,
five police officers have been stripped
of their taser accreditation. This is Roberto Curti,
moments before his death. He was chased by up to 11 police who repeatedly used tasers
and capsicum spray even as Roberto lay on the ground
in handcuffs. And all because he'd stolen
two packets of biscuits while high on LSD.

In handing down her findings, the New South Wales Coroner
was scathing. It's impossible to believe
that he would've died but for the actions of police. All of the medical experts agree
that his death was not coincidental.

She called their actions... Reckless careless dangerous
and excessively forceful. And made five recommendations, including that disciplinary action
be considered. But Roberto's family wants more. The family and our lawyers
also believe that charges for certain criminal
offences should be laid. Something the commissioner
hasn't ruled out. We might need to look
at some sort of prosecution. But clearly, at this stage, we haven't had a chance
to investigate it. Meanwhile, in Queensland, the
Deputy State Coroner has recommended all tasers be fitted with cameras
as well as further police training following the 2009 death
of Antonio Galeano at a home near Townsville. He was tasered 28 times. His family wants the weapons banned. They're going
to keep killing people and they're going to keep
covering up their tracks. Coming up - the band
we've all been waiting for.

Tim Mathieson has revealed what life is like as the partner
of Australia's Prime Minister. In a revealing interview,
he's told Melbourne's 'Herald Sun' he likes to look after
Julia Gillard. Mr Mathieson runs her bath,
fetches her newspaper and blow dries her hair. And when the Prime Minister
is at work, he can be found on the couch,
watching her on the TV.

It's what you need in every partner, isn't it?

Coming up - the band
we've all been waiting for. Coldplay is just minutes away. They'll perform four songs live. But first, here's Kochie.

Wall Street is down over 100 points at the moment. Analysts are

it is up against a wall of worry. You got the fiscal cliff in America. You got the problems in Greece and the Israeli bombings in Gaza overnight have not helped things either.

Sport now, here's Beretts. West Tigers star Benji Marshall is expected to seek an immediate
release from his contract to pursue a Japanese rugby stint
next summer. The move comes in the wake of the NRL accepting Sonny Bill
Williams back into the game Marshall's 2009 attempt
to play Japanese rugby was immediately rejected
by former CEO David Gallop. The Socceroos have come from behind
to beat South Korea at home for the first time in 40 years. Down 1-0 early, Nikita Rukavytsya
and Robbie Cornthwaite both found the back of the net
to claim an encouraging 2-1 victory. And finally, Billy Slater
and Dale Thomas have brought the games
of rugby league and AFL to the streets of Barcelona
as part of an Adidas campaign. The pair kicked and passed a Sherrin
and a Steeden in the narrow laneways and cultural icons
of the soccer-mad city and were quickly embraced
by curious locals. To come and see some
of the fantastic landmarks around this great city, it's been a wonderful experience. They also tested their skills with Spanish World Cup hero
David Villa.

Quite a day out for the boys. Not bad at all.Quite a day out for a lot of people here too. Let's go to Grant with the latest on the crowds? Very happy to announce, they are here! (CHEERING AND APPLAUSE) Coldplay is in the Opera House getting ready for their performances. Four terrific songs. Boy, haven't they enjoyed a wonderful love affair with this country for so long, since 'Yellow' in 2000, that bond has been strong and mutual. As they have gone on to dominate the world, Australians have held a special spot for them in their hearts. Considering their latest album, 'Paradise', has become their biggest selling single in Australia. It is proof the love affair keeps growing between Coldplay and Australia. Would you agree?(CHEERING AND APPLAUSE) .In a fast-paced plastic society, these guys are marathon runners, they have got the staying power and longevity of few bands because they produce great songs and are terrific showmen. I can't wait, not too long away now as we look at the forecast.

Sunrise weather brought to you by new non-drowsy easy-to-swallow
Claratyne Liquid Capsules with pure liquid power.

That love affair continues in just a few moments, when they take to this stage to perform for these special people and our lovely Sunrise viewers at home! Don't miss it. Back to you.Brilliant, if you are watching from home, do not go anywhere, you have got half an hour to wait. Time for some brekky I reckon.

Matthew Newton has escaped
conviction in the US, for now. The troubled actor faced court on a number of charges including assault, trespassing
and resisting arrest. He has been granted
a conditional dismissal. We're very pleased that the case
is going to be dismissed and this chapter is over. The TV personality will need including community service, in order to avoid the case
going to trial. And Seven's US correspondent
Angela Cox joins us from Miami. Ange, what are the conditions
of this dismissal?

Yes, good morning, guys. Considering the buildup for this case and how long it dragged on with all the adjournments, it was over quickly in two minutes. They have a pretrial diversion program with not so serious offences to avoid trial. So serious offences to avoid trial. basically the judge dismissed the charges so long as Newton does 50 hours of community service, he can do it anywhere he likes and can do it back in Australia. He has to pay the hotel worker he punched in the face $ face $11,500 and send him a formal written letter of apology and stay clear of him and Mr Mow's, where the first incident happened because he had a scuffle with police and he was refused to service and refused to leave. He has to do that within 100 days to avoid the trial.I imagine they are fairly tight, the restrictions. What happens if he doesn't meet these conditions?Yes, well, if he doesn't meet those within the next 100 days he will have to be back here and face trial and could face a maximum of one year in prison. He could get a conviction recorded which would be a real problem for him because it would make it difficult for him to visit the US and work here. Hopefully it will be the fresh start we want to see for Matthew Newton. He certainly looked healthier and focused. I wouldn't say he was relaxed, he was wouldn't say he was relaxed, he tense about the court case and the attention but a far cry from the security pictures in the hotel where he seemed so unhinged, chasing the hotel worker around the lobby. He seemed calmer. We know he has been getting treatment from the Betty ford clinic and from appearances it looked like it was working. I did ask him what he wanted to do but he ask him what he wanted to do but wouldn't speak to the media.Thank you.

The family of a man who died after
being tasered by police in Sydney is calling for criminal charges
to be laid against the officers involved. The New South Wales Coroner
has slammed the police in her findings into the death
of Brazilian student Roberto Curti. The 21year-old died in March
after being tasered repeatedly during a struggle with officers.

What eventuated was a frenzy
of officers, most of them very junior
and inexperienced, half of them not even sure of what Roberto was suspected
of having done, joining the chase and behaving
out of control. Among the Coroner's recommendations
is possible disciplinary action and a review of taser procedures
and training. New South Wales Police Commissioner
Andrew Scipione joins us now. Andrew, good morning. Overnight a man was tasered
by police in Sydney. What can you tell us?

Yes, good morning, David. Look, we had an incident in south western Sydney overnight where police were called to an event in Lakemba. On arrival they have seen a victim who is suffered from facial injuries who has pointed the police to he believed to be the offender. Police have then engaged that man. As a result they have been involved in some struggle. One of the officers was picked up and thrown through a glass window. That officer has then gone back and engaged the offender who has then picked him up again and drove him drove him into the concrete. The police had to discharge their OC spray. It had no effect. Taser was then used, the offender was taken to the then used, the offender was taken to the ground and taken into custody. I have got to say, it was a very violent exchange. He was taken to hospital. He was sedated until we can talk to him.Let's go back to the Roberto Curti case. The coroner said they were reckless, dangerous and thuggish and excessively forcefulLet me start by saying, we express our condolences to the Curti family. To lose someone that young is tragic. The coroner has made her findings. They are what they are. At this stage I accepted all five of the recommendations she has made. Those matters will be considered. That is UN with of the recommendations that the matters be considered by the police integrity condition. Subject to that happening we will make available what we need to do get to the potm of what we need do.Do you think police officers are taking tasers for granted Because they are not meant to be lethal, there is a lure to excessively use them?I don't think so, David, the events of last night and across the state regularly show these devices actually save lives. They are the things that stop police being seriously injured often and in fact save the lives of others.How often are they used? Give us an idea, five times a day? 10 times a dayIt is a great question, when they were first introduced in 2008 they were used sparingly but when the entire force was trained it is down, 70% of the useing are where an officer simply draws the taser and doesn't discharge it but puts it away. It works out we have 11 uses her month of some 700,000 square kilometres, that is once a month where we actually discharge the device.Thank you.

The excitement is building
for Coldplay. The band is just minutes away from performing the first
of four songs, live. The racing industry is back
in the spotlight this morning with jockeys and one of Australia's
richest men making headlines. The Damien Oliver betting scandal
has reportedly widened. Melbourne's 'Herald Sun' says up to 10 top jockeys
are also facing bans for placing bets on horses
through third parties. Meanwhile, the 'Daily Telegraph'
claims race clubs are withholding winnings
from mining magnate Nathan Tinkler to settle debts.

Sunrise correspondent Nuala Hafner
has the details. Nuala, good morning. A further 10 jockeys
have been implicated. How will these claims be dealt with?

Morning Nat, apparently investigations are ongoing. As you say, the 'Herald Sun' is reporting claims today the jockeys getting professional punters to place third party bets for them is quite widespread. As you say, ten jockeys may face sanctions. The paper is reporting one of these professional punters who has kept a ledger of the jockey bets, that authorities have placed pressure on him to cooperate with them. Now, the head of racing Victoria, ro Victoria, rob Hines says investigations are ongoing and thai are constantly monitoring betting practices here in Victoria. It comes off the back of champion jockey Damien Oliver on Monday admitting to placing a $10 bet on a horse that went on to win.It is a widespread problem. Do you think more investigations could be on the way? It was almost inevitable Nat, when you find one bad apple you can't help questions whether there are more bad apples in the lot. It is something I am sure we will hear more of in coming days. The paper is quoteing the jockey saying everyone knows it is going on and wide spread and they get away with it by going through the professional punters the third parties.No more by the sound of it. And bookies are withholding wins from mining magnate Nathan Tinkler.This racing Tinkler.This racing business is very expensive. The paper is reporting the racing clubs are holding $ holding $600,000 in prize money to settle debts for sponsorship, for stable rent. Also money being funneled to Racing Queensland to settle debts there. Thank goodness, settle debts there. Thank goodness,, settle debts there. Thank his horses are doing well. But an audit of Australian auctions found his Patenax farm spent $ his Patenax farm spent $400 million on horses in the past ten years.Big bickies, thank you, Nuala.

We've been covering the scandal
rocking the CIA. This morning, President Barack Obama
has backed a second general, who's been dragged into the case that forced David Petraeus to resign
as director of the spy agency. The whole thing raises
a lot of serious questions. But whenever you have a whiff
of sex and powerful people, it becomes fodder
for late night TV comedians.

Have a look.

The whole things was, like,
innuendo after innuendo! And the whole time,
I'm like daaaahhhh.... I'm the worst journalist
in the world! For God's sakes, the title
of her book was 'All In'! You're not even trying to hide it!
(LAUGHTER) She might as well... You know how he found out
that his wife knew? When he got home and saw
all his classified documents in the driveway on fire. OK... "Honey! Honey!
But, let me exp... Oh." Interesting fact - David Petraeus
was reportedly not well liked at the CIA, where he worked. AUDIENCE: Oh.
Yeah. Tip for you fellas out there - don't cheat on your wife
if you work with professional spies who don't like you. (LAUGHTER)

People are disappointed -
four-star general, highly decorated, brilliant strategist,
director of the CIA. Yet, he's behaving like your
common congressman, you know? (LAUGHTER) People are stunned. It's my solemn duty
as a talk show host to inform you that Justin Bieber
and Selena Gomez have broken up. (AUDIENCE SIGHS) She was cheating on him
with General Petraeus. (LAUGHTER) And finally today, a rare 76-carat diamond went up
for auction in Switzerland. The jeweller called it
a priceless stone while David Petraeus's wife
called it a start

That is very funny

Scenes from the Sydney Opera House. In minutes, Coldplay
will be taking to the stage

Live from the northernfore court. In just a couple of minutes, Coldplay will be performing their first song. It is classic. They have been warming up during the commercial break.They are ready to go. They'll keep practising, truly remarkable. What a magnificent spot and wonderful view. It is 7:30 so let's get the news headlines with Nat.

Matthew Newton has been ordered to pay a US hotel clerk
$11,000 in damages over a scuffle at a Miami hotel. The troubled actor
was arrested in April over claims he punched the clerk
in the face during an argument
over mobile phone reception. The charges will be dismissed
as long as he apologises and completes 50 hours
of community service. We're very pleased that the case
is going to be dismissed He will also have to complete
an anger management course but was given credit
for his time in rehab. A fire at a Gold Coast caravan park
has left one person dead. The blaze started in a demountable
at Carrara 100 people were evacuated safely
but 1 man was unaccounted for. Police discovered a body
a short time ago. Firefighters managed
to contain the blaze before it spread to other buildings. The New South Wales
Police Commissioner has defended the use of tasers
by officers. It comes after a NSW Coroner
slammed five Sydney police who tasered Brazilian student
Roberto Curti 14 times before he died, in March.

Commissioner Scipione insists
they're needed to protect police. These devices actually save lives, they're the things that stop police
being seriously injured often. Among the Coroner's recommendations
is possible disciplinary action and a review of taser procedures
and training. Barack Obama has held
his first press conference since being re-elected US President. He's responded to a scandal involving the former director
of the CIA - and questions about whether national
security was put at risk. I have no evidence, at this point,
from what I've seen that classified information
was, ah, disclosed that in any way would have had
a negative impact on our national security. The President also spoke about his plans
to tackle the looming fiscal cliff. It's believed up
to 10 top jockeys are facing bans for placing bets
through third parties. News Limited quotes
an unidentified jockey One punter is said to have only
cooperated with investigations after being threatened
with a lengthy ban from the track. The revelations follow
Racing Victoria's decision to ban champion jockey
Damien Oliver. He admitted on Monday to placing
a $10,000 bet on a rival horse. Socceroos captain Lucas Neill has praised the character
of his young side following their 2-1 win
over South Korea. With scores locked
in the 88th minute, Robbie Cornthwaite tapped
in his first international goal for a well-earned victory. Two days preparation,
lots of new faces. I thought it was a fantastic effort. Whenever you play a Korean team,
it's always going to be difficult. Benji Marshall's manager
has declared he will seek a release from
the star's West Tigers contract to pursue a rugby stint
in Japan next summer. It comes in the wake of Sonny Bill
Williams returning to the NRL which has set a new precedent
in the game's rules. Parramatta Eels fullback
Jarryd Hayne has also flagged
a future summer rugby stint. And Anthony Mundine says corrupt judging's
the only thing that can stop him from beating Daniel Geale
in their world title grudge match. Mundine didn't resort
to racial taunts when the pair came face-to-face
yesterday, instead, talking up his credentials
the only way he knows how. I'm the best athlete ever, man,
and I'm gonna prove it. And now I wanna become one of
the best pound for pounders ever. The rematch will take place
on January 30 at the Sydney Entertainment Centre.

That is going to be a show down. Now have a look at this, Chris Martin at the front of the stage, saying G'day to fans before they have been on stage and performing. Awesome stuff this morning. Grant is back stage with the band this morning, GD, you are deep in there?Spending one on one time with the fans. It is good to see for a man at the top of the game, musically, for 12 years. Are you ready to see Coldplay, everybody? (CHEERING AND APPLAUSE) .If you love them, let them know it. Four of the best today. I might just pop in here for just a second, for one-on-one time with Mr Martin. How special is that? Very lucky. Can't believe it.What is he like up close and personal?Gorgeous.Spunk! A stud muffin.A stud muffin. It is great to spend time on the fans, one on one when you can.Are we on TV? Yes, we are, live around Australia. Yes, it is fantastic. Just having a chat.Sorry to interrupt. I just wanted to thank you, four songs, that is incredibly generous, we appreciate that.We would do more but we are just not handsome enough for TV.That's not true is it? Stud muffins they called you. I will take you up here for just a second. Are you OK?(cries) you OK?(cries).What's wrong?I love Chris Martin.Why do ayou love him?Because he's just awesome.You are barely containing yourself, aren't you? This is a very exciting day for you.Yes, my God.How would you react if he came over here and spoke to you.I think I would die. Well, we won't want that. He is over there, on his way over. Let's take a look at the forecast around Australia now.
