This program is captioned live. Tonight - 700 rail jobs to go, but could thousands more be at stake? The hunt for a Castle Hill woman on the run with her 4-year-old granddaughter. The violence escalates as Israel and Hamas spirals towards all-out war. The caravan factory workers who have won $15 million. 007 walks the Sydney red carpet.

Good evening. RailCorp is being axed and nearly 700 jobs are to go in a major overhaul of the train network. The State Government says the changes will mean better customer service. Nine News uncovered a document that suggestions the real number of jobs affected could be more than 6,000. The State Government's vision to fix the trains is bold. When it comes to an explanation, it gets fuzzy.My focus is not on the money it will save, but about what positive customer service will happen.Tens of millions will be saved by axing 450 maintenance staff over four years, plus 240 middle managers from 1 July.690 staff, front line staff announced going today, on top of 750. If you think fixing the trains by sacking 1500 staff is the way to go, we'll have to disagree.Station staff numbers will be frozen at current levels.The Minister is being loose with the truth when she claimed this morning that your local station will not be affected by the cuts. There's no detail whatsoever provided.The shake-up is more massive than the government lets on as an internal document obtained by Nine News shows. It's titled 'Anticipated impacts of proposed design on RailCorp staff". 21% will not be affected, 3,200 workers, including station managers and incident response staff. 1800 or 1200 are underreview, including apprentices and surveyers. And more by existing reforms, cleaners, and the rest, drivers, are unaffected for now.People are complaining about the service not being up to scratch anyhow. If you are getting rid of 700 people, it follows the service will get worse.Live to Kevin who joins us from Carlingford. Why is there a discrepancy between the job losses and thousands under review?One of the reasons is the government is being sneaky about the railways. 6,000 positions reviewed and specific numbers, specific jobs. When it comes to small stations like this at Carlingford, there is no station staff here. In the future will there ever be station staff here - that is the question.There's a massive police search tonight for a Castle Hill grandmother, who is on the run with her 4-year-old granddaughter. Let's go live to Damian Ryan. What can you tell us about the girl's disappearance?4- year-old Annaleise Grace Harris- Edwards vanished on 8 October. Publicity about the case has been previously banned because the child is the subject of a Family Court order. Now the court has tape the step to remove those constraints in an all-out effort to locate Annaleise. It was 8 October, her father went to pick her from a preschool in Sydney's west. She was not there. Police believe the little girl is in the company of her grandmother, 55-year-old Bronwyn Edwards from castle hill. It's thought they may be travelling in a red pink yish Hyundai Excel, spotted in Port Macquarie, and Coffs Harbour recently. Bronwyn Edwards, the grandmother, has connections and family connections in Queensland. That state is also on alert. It's been 5 weeks since Annaleise disappeared. There are concerns for her welfare. Anyone able to assist is asked to call Crimestoppers.Thank you, Damian Ryan. Paramedics are urging drivers to be extra careful on the wet roads after three fatal crashes in Sydney's west this afternoon. A woman was killed in thst three-car collision on the Northern Road at Mulgoa, four others, including children were treated at Nepean. Another woman died when her car rolled on the Great Western Highway at Blaxland. A man in his 20s was killed when he lost control of his car and crashed into a tree at North Richmond. Israel and Hamas militants in Gaza continue to trade rockets and bombs. 19 Palestinians have been killed. Three Israelis have died. For the first time in more than 20 years rockets fell on Tel Aviv, while Israel is calling up thousands of Army Reservists and massing tanks on the border. Trading deadly blows, rockets roaring outs of the Gaza. In return, dozens of bomb and missile strikes by Israel's air force. Trying to pinpoint militant launch sites, but civilians, inevitably, too often the victims. TRANSLATION: Just when we got out of the car we saw a fire coming from the sky. We hit the ground. We were all injured.I hope that Hamas and the other terror organisations in Gaza got the message.They didn't. Hamas now fired more than 300 rockets and more Tahs into Israel, two long-range -- mortars into Israel, two long-range missiles hitting Tel Aviv. It's the first time it has come under fire since Saddam Hussein's Scud attacks 20 years ago. Israel's Iron Dome antimissile defence knocks out most of the rockets, but some get killed. Three adults were killed, a baby injured. There are fears the tit for tad war of atricks is doomed to escall -- atraigs is doomed to escalate.Israel will take whatever action is needed.Armoured units to under take a ground assault if ordered. 30,000 reservists have been called up. This Hamas leader blames Israel's occupation of Palestinian land for the conflict. "They don't own the decision to end it", he warns. There was a certain irony when the Israeli Prime Minister addressed the Minister. Salom.That means peace. There seems little hope of that. Israel buries its dead, and they do the same inside the Gaza Strip. Peter Stefanovic reporting there. Well, the Police Integrity Commission will investigate whether there was criminal conduct among officers involved in the taisoring of Brazilian student, Roberto Laudisio Curti. Roberto Laudisio Curti died after being tasered 14 times during a chase through Sydney's CBD. More than 200kg of cocaine and a man's body have been discovered on a yacht headed for Australia. Australian Federal Police found the boat which ran aground off Tonga. The drug haul is estimated to be worth $112 million. Two masked men threatened a little girl during a violent armed robbery at Hurlstone Park. The 9-year-old was with her mother and a hairdresser who two men burst into a beauty salon with a carving knife and a wood ebb bat and demanded cash.She was scared and screaming.The men are on the run after fleeing in a get away car. Home owners are being told not to expect a rate cut any time soon because the economy is doing well. Australia continues to outperform most developed countries. Problems overseas could put our strong growth at risk. It's all smiles for Wayne Swan, the Treasurer lapping up an International Monetary Fund report on Australia's economic strength, and his economic management.I'm really proud of the fact that we stuck to our guns during the global financial crisis. And forecasters are upbeat N a survey two weeks ago 23 out of 25 leading economists predicted the RBA would cut rates next month. Now just 12 think a cut to stimulate the economy is on the cards. It's a sign of a strong economy, but the Opposition says households are still struggling. If the government is looking for a pat on the back, I don't think they'll get it from the Australian people. The economy is facing fresh challenges, with conditions worsening overseas. The Eurozone has fallen into recession, the United States facing a fiscal cliff, with nasive tax heights and spending cuts -- massive tax heights and spending cuts next year, and growing tensions in the Middle East.There's a lot at stake.A lot can put the Australian economy at risk. Business groups are ringing the alarm bell about our industrial relations system. Calling for flexibility and less red tape.That has gone too far in a time when the global economy is going backwards. There's a flexibility, militant problem and a productivity problem. A revolutionly vaccine for teenage girls dramatically reduced cases of cervical cancer. The GQ Award jab, launcheed five years ago, resulted -- Gardisil jab launched five years ago raulted in a 77% reduction in the human papilloma virus virus. It is responsible for three-quarters of cervical cancer.It's great to see a drastic decrease. It's good for women in Australia.Four out of five people will be exposed to the virus in their lifetime. The vaccine will be available to boys from next year. It's the world's largest retail fashion chain, but Zara is accused of missing out on a big slice of the market because it won't stock plus sizes. Experts stay Australian retailers can cash in on this fashion black hole - all they need to do is break the trend. Zara, high fashion at a friendly price. The world's largest fashion retailer introduces a new line every two weeks. All the latest styles off the runway into the stores in record time. But what you won't find on their wracks are plus sizes. We sent fashion blogger Hayley Hughes to Zara's first Sydney store to see what she could find.I got this red blazer. And a grey blazer and a white dress. Hayley is a size 16 - the average for an Australian womanLet's try this one.OK.It's tight in the arms. It's not going to do up. That's an extra large as well.Yes. To the point there's nothing I could find in my size.There are claims Zara is struggling in the US because it refuses to stock plus sizes.Each have done tremendous business here.Here in Australia it's not just Zara, Country Road's largest size is 16, Witchery and Cue don't go bigger than a 14.The shoppers are lining up. They want to spend their money.Any retailer in this country is missing out on a huge opportunity by not stocking and providing a larger range.Eight caravan factory workers are celebrating after scooping 15 million in Powerball. They were all smiles this morning as they turned up for work at the 'The Jay Leno Show' plant in Melbourne. Despite being $1.8 million richer, they say they have no intention of giving up work.

The parents of an 8-month-old baby girl have left a week-long inquest not knowing how their daughter died. The court has been told that primary suspicion falls on the family nanny, though she denied it. To all who knew her in the eight short months of her life, Emily Pagett was a happy, healthy baby girl. In October 2004 her parents, Mel and Nick, left her and her brothers at their remote property in Northern NSW, in the care of their trusted Nani so they could attend a wedding. It was the last time they saw Emily alive.She's very special, our little girl.She was a very beautiful baby, happy little baby. She had two older brothers that loved her and we were a close family.The Coroner noted suspicious injuries, four rib fracturess, and a large haematoma on her neck, although not lethal that contributed somehow to her death. Emily's nanny, Shiralee Robinson appeared at the inquest and chose not to give evidence. Despite being interviewed by the police three times, she's enable to provide a plausible explanation for Emily's injuries. The Coroner says the primary suspicion falls on Shiralee Robinson:

Hopefully one day someone will give some answers that can finish all the pieces in the puzzle that we don't have.Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall lightened the mood during a visit to quake- ravaged Christchurch.

Shane Watson has been named in an extended 13-man squad for the second test against South Africa, in Adelaide. The Vice Captain addition is the only change to the squad, which drew with the Proteas in Brisbane. Still struggling with a calf injury, all-round weapon Shane Watson will likely be reduced to batting duties, if cleared to play in Adelaide.It's unlikely he'll build his workload to bowl in the test.Shane is outstanding with the bat and ball. If the selectors go in favour of him with a bat, he's going to affect our job with the bat. Michael, ideally, to have Shane in the team as a bat and bowl. The Vice Captain is the only addition, with Rob Quiney offering cover if Shane Watson is ruled out. Selectors stuck with first-test failures Warneing and Ponting. The one big decision - will Mitchell Starc replace Ben Hilfenhaus. Trying to ignore it to be honest. All I can do is control what I can control. Prepare as best I can. Benny has been harshly done by in the media. He was fantastic for Australia against India. He had one game where he didn't take five-for and everyone is over him.

We have a good set up of bowlers and a good team.David Beckham wants to become the biggest soccer superstar to play in the A- League and the Western Sydney Wanderers could be the club he's heading to.
