Now there's just a sense he's bringing the odd one back. Do we need all these field snrs I wonder, do we need mid--- fielders? I wonder do, we need mid-off? That man, I'm thinking maybe he could be better used over behind here and leave this whole area open. To play a big drive if Vernon Philander wants to. Mitchell Johnson.

Tonight, the extreme heat hits Sydney, but a warning, it's just the beginning. Guns drawn. Police made a dramatic arrest in the south-west. A naval base in lockdown after a thief steals weapons from a patrol boat. Get ready for Super Saturday, the new grab for your Christmas dollar. And Australia off to a flying start against South Africa. Good evening. Hot, muggy, and uncomfortable, we got our first real taste of summer today as the mercury got to 40 degrees. Sydney ciders did everything to escape the oppressive heat, but the worst is yet to come. The early signs pointed to a scorcher, and on the last day of spring, Sydney brought a blast of summer. They got in early at Bondi Beach.Keep cool in the water, then get them home.Our pets as well required more attention than normal.Give them a drink and a shower, keep them cool. The real heat was in the West, an ambulance called to this school in Granville after a student was overcome. A hard slog for those working outdoors, you wouldn't be here if you didn't have to.Staying indoors in the air conditioning would be good.That or the Shild oasis of Penrith pool.I've got air-conditioning at home.It didn't quite get to 30 in the city but in the West Parramatta, Bankstown and Richmond all got close to 39. Country areas suffered more. But today he is really just a preview, tomorrow temperatures in the West and along the coast will climb even higher. after a disappointing last summer, it is expected the Waterways will get a workout. Water police want everyone to play by the rules.We want you to enjoy the waterways but we want you to be safe.The Westpac chopper is also preparing packed waterways invariably mean rescues. If you thought the beaches were busy today, wait for the weekend. On die alone is expecting up to 40,000 visitors, a big responsibility for just a handful of Life Guards. -- Bondi Beach.We want people to stay between the flags, sunscreen, hats, take it easy, it's going to be a long hot weekend.Yes it is. Amber Sherlock is in Penrith, a very hot night ahead?Georgie, it's absolutely sweltering, still sitting around 37 degrees tonight. At Bankstown and Liverpool it is 30, the city is a bit more bearable sitting at 25. It is on track to be a very uncomfortable night tonight with temperatures only expected to fall to 23 in the West and 22 in the city. Tomorrow is expected to be hotter, reaching 42 in the West and 36 in the city. I'll be back later with a full weekend forecast. Thank you. Two men have been charged over the brazen shooting of a security guard at a hotel at Berala in Sydney's West. Dimity Clancey is there, Dimity, a breakthrough for police?It is. Specially trained police officers moved in on the two men early this morning, a 40 year-old was forced from his home at Ingleburn with his hands in the air, he was ordered to the ground before being handcuffed. At the same time a 35 year-old man was arrested at his home in their field. They have both been charged with offences including shook with intent to murder, a 63 year-old security guard who had just collected the weekend's takings from the Berala Hotel. He was allegedly shot seven times during the attack but miraculously survived. Investigators linked this shooting to a jury highest in July and that is what led them to this morning's arrest -- jewellery.The evidence we gathered during the course of that investigation led us to identify what we allege these two people are suspects for both offences.Both men are behind bars tonight, and will face court in the morning.Thank you for joining us. There's been a a major security breach at an Australian naval base with the thieves storming a patrol boat before attacking an officer and stealing weapons. The base is tonight in lockdown while an urgent review has been ordered into security around the country. Darwin's naval base, famous for withstanding an onslaught from Japan's air force, but last night could not defend itself against one thief.This is a very serious crime. Police are investigating how an intruder slipped through security, stormed this patrol boat, assaulted a crew member, and managed to flee with a number of guns.Clearly his life was threatened and he's quite shaken.He stole two pump-action shotguns and 12 semi-automatic pistols, the hunt is on to retrieve the dangerous Arsenal.The offender in this circumstances appeared to have good knowledge of the layout of the vessel and ADF procedures. And then there's a question, how could this happen? The chief of maybe is seeking answers.I'm very concerned, it's not something I would expect. -- Navy is. That's why I have initiated a review of our security practices.A man has been injured after an excavator rolled on top of him at a work site at Macquarie Park in the north-west. He was taken to Royal North Shore Hospital in a stable condition suffering cuts from his arms. There's no end in sight to the AWU scandal with the Opposition stepping up calls for a full judicial inquiry. Tony Abbott says the Prime Minister should not be concerned if she has nothing to hide. With Federal Parliament done for the year politicians are heading home. But for Tony Abbott the sparks continued to fly. He is not backing down from his AWU attack on the Prime Minister.This whole business from the beginning was a sham to facilitate a fraud. The Opposition insists Julia Gillard misled authorities when registering the union Association, that the main purpose wasn't:

They say according to Miss Gillard's exit interview with Slater & Gordon, it was:

So we know why she set this up, because she said so.Julia Gillard maintains no wrongdoing, but the opposition wants a judicial inquiry. To get to the bottom of this.It shows how in sincere Tony Abbott is. They want to talk about snaring the Prime Minister, Tony Abbott is a E disgrace.All week the opposition has accused the Prime Minister of not answering questions in Parliament, they say it was because she does not want to be caught lying in Parliament. The shadow Attorney-General said that be government had a criminal in The Lodge. But outside parliament he would not dare.Parliamentary privilege exists for a reason.The United Nations has voted to upgrade Palestine to a non-member observer state with an overwhelming majority. The result has led to wild celebrations across cars and the West Bank. Israel and the United States opposed the move, while Australia abstain. -- Gaza. Drivers can expect delays in the City this weekend as salvage crews work to remove a crane that collapsed on a building site at Ultimo earlier this week. Broadway will be released to two lanes in both directions from 4:00am tomorrow until Monday. Fire has destroyed a garage at the back of a property at Stanmore, emergency crews had to cut through a door to access the blaze. Residents from neighbouring properties were evacuated. A Blue Mountains family has had their Christmas shattered by heartless thieves, the robbers stole presents were thousands of dollars a along with some precious and irreplaceable momentos. 25 years in the force hardened Mark McNicholl, now retired, he's the victim of an appalling crime and struggling to hold it together.She just bricks into tears, my wife, all the time. The robbers must have known who they were dealing with with these reminders all over the house, Monday morning they jumped through the fence, broke into a door and stole $2,000 worth of gift vouchers and cash, Christmas presents for the children.They are doing it really tough.Before they left, one final sickening blow, snatching a purse worth nothing itself, but filled with a few precious memories of the couple's son who passed away. Including a compress flower from the funeral.20 years ago. -- compressed flower. And they Medicare card. It had his name on it.Mark and Marion are no longer worried about the money, only the purse. Those small items mean everything to the family and Mark won't rest until it is returned. His policing skills put to use, he found out the vouchers were used at a K-Mart store hours after the break in. Police have released these images.If you can identify these people, you may be able to assist police with their inquiries. And a family reliving a painful past. From tomorrow, the cost of some of Australia's biggest selling medicines will be reduced. Popular cholesterol-lowering drugs and stomach pain relievers are all part of the price revamp. The changes could see customers saves between 20 and nearly $2 on each prescription. With fewer than four weeks until Christmas, retailers are doing everything to lure shoppers and boost spending. West deal centres across Sydney are leading the charge with their first ever one-day mega sale, they have dubbed it Super Saturday. The trees are, the most important shelves are stacked, and Santa is ready. The one thing missing is Christmas shoppers, but come tomorrow three little words might kick-start the season. Super Saturday sale.As we are trying to get them out spending early and spending strong.Of the one-day sale will see many Westmead retails. -- West field.Get in early and get in heart and start Christmas.With the poor retail year behind them some stores have already started discounting.Most items are at the lowest price you will see all prisoners.They are not the only ones, right across Sydney retailers will be slashing prices. -- Christmas.Women's denim will be discounted, Tories bedding and cookware.Locked in for one of the hottest days of the year, there's no telling whether the heat will help. -- Tawnies. Or hinder. - - Tawnies. For a lot of retailers they might also say a bit of a cut and rinse would be something happy to find in their Christmas stockings this year. It is the beginning of a busy Christmas trading period, on Tuesday the 18th Westfield malls will be open until 9pm. Then on the 20th they will not close until midnight. At were still Parramatta there will be a 33 hour shopping bonanza from 9 am on the 20th until 6pm on the 21st. As for the smaller independent retailers, they are not worried about the big boys taking all the glory.It will get people thinking about Christmas, it will bring them out of their homes and get them shopping. It's fantastic. There's not normally much to smile about when you're sick, but a visit from Santa certainly cheered up these kids at the Children's Hospital at Westmead today. There were plenty of presence to go around and some festive fun for the most deserving of patients. In the news ahead, a drama filled night for ambulance crews at Parramatta.

This program is not captioned. pretty good actually. It's got a
little warmer this afternoon. It's forecast to get hotter in the weekend. It's been unusually cool, windy and wet here the last couple of days but we've had a good day today and most especially for the Australians. South Africa chose to bat first. 7 for 141. Mitchell Johnson has got things going after the tea break out in the middle. Getting things going in the comment -- comment are -- commentary box are Bill Lawry, Mark Taylor and oofplt This is going to be a 2.5 hour session. That's long. Australia are slow with hour rates. The extra half hour because of that will totally be taken up for sure. Du Plessis is the batsman, not out for 39. That's him on strike today. Six fours today. He's been allowed to be free-flowing today compared to the Adelaide rear guard magnificent century he plead. And he's enjoyed these conditions a little bit. He's got Vernon Philander to hang in with him for some time otherwise the south of Cannes will find themselves on the back foot in this test match very badly. Once again, as it was the last session, it's important Australia come out here with that aggression that they showed just after lunch. They don't want to let a side off the hook which has happened quite a bit in this series so far. 7 for 142 is a good position to be in if you're an Australian bowler. You want to make sure you come out and fire up from the word go here. That's a good start, from Johnson. Got Philander, who can bat. Dale Steyn is next in, and he showed in Adelaide - sorry, not Adelaide, Melbourne four years ago that he can bat down the order. He made 70- odd. You don't want 180 to be 250. From the Australian point of view you think it has to be under 200 to finish off what has been a very good day for them so far.

Oh s that an edge? No, it's not, but that's exactly the shot they wan him playing. Fast enough and just bouncing but on a drivible length. And here in Perth quite often brings an outside edge. That's the length. Encourage him to drive despite the fact 7 for 42 is a magnificent effort, they have been a fraction short. This is a good line, left-arm over the wicket. Across to the batsman.

Just too wide. It pitched and kept going away from the bat. And that's the shape he looks to be employing, Mitchell Johnson. Maybe he's setting him up for one that is going to come back, but I thought there was a stick. Heard something through the stump microphone, so I wonder what it was. I'm with you. I thought I heard something as well. It was well away from the bat, certainly wasn't an edge. There seems to be some noise there. I heard a noise as well.
