A frustrated Shane Warne through a ball at Marlon Samuels, who, in turn, through his cricket bat. The exchange had to be defused by cricket players and umpires.I take a very dim view of breaches of our code of behaviour where players are found guilty. That is the position that I have been entirely consistent with and I continue to be consistent with that today. I will not condone behaviour that sees players fined or suspended.

In the first Australian study on the link between pay and looks, more attractive men were found to earn $81,750 a year compared $49,600 for their less attractive brothers.You're good looking. Are you paid well?Well, look, my wife doesn't think I'm good looking.

Mary is six months pregnant and but deliberately drinking heavily. She does not want to kill the foetus growing inside her, but she does want to harm the baby so that the child qualifies for the disability benefit. Mary is not her real name. She only spoke to us if we did not identify her. She already has a four young children and lives here with eight other family members. None work. Most of the adults appear drunk at eight in the morning. Each child means a 250 rand per month in state benefits to Mary. That is around £20. If her unborn child is not healthy, the disability grant she would get is nearly five times more. This is the life that she could be choosing for her baby. 75% of the children at these a charity of the foetal alcohol syndrome because of their mothers also drank heavily during pregnancy.

Here's what's making news right now: Homes are under threat from a fast moving and out-of- control bushfire burning north of Wagga Wagga in country NSW. Meanwhile in Tasmania, the search continues for locals missing since devastating bushfires swept through the township of Dunalley and other areas over the weekend. And an 18 year old man has been granted bail despite facing a manslaughter charge over the New Year's Eve death of another young man in a brawl in Victoria. Let's return to our top story now. The New South Wales city of Wagga Wagga is under siege from a bushfire. We are joined from the ground. Bring us up to date, what is the situation? We have some breaking news. They had managed to get the fire under control. Locals are breathing a sigh of relief. They were worried only half an hour ago. They told residents at to stay with their homes because the road was too dangerous. There were also beginning a back-burning operation which seems to have done the job. The hills now, almost 100 hectares have been burned out. A lot of smoking areas. It has come close to the houses in the townships. It is around 100 people about 14 kilometres north of one or there. The fire has been contained across the road from the township. There are still fire crews that a mopping up because there are a lot of smouldering areas. Because of the horror conditions expected tomorrow, they want to stop any more smouldering. In case it begins anything worse. They are now considering reopening the road back to the township. They think that they have this under control.That is some good news. It sounds as though they are not in the clear yet. Tasmania remains in the group's other massive bushfire disaster this afternoon. Residents are still stuck in evacuation centres as two

stuck in evacuation centres as two
blazes burn out of control. We go live to the scene. Good afternoon. Bring us up to speed. A short time ago, the Tasmanian fire service are upgraded their warnings. In the north of the state there is an emergency warning that his current. Other locations have watch and active situations in place. This means that if you see the fire original home, you need to get out and start getting a fire plan in order. Those are the important areas, up in those spaces. The Tasmanian fire service has just released those warnings. It is now time to start moving. The wind has started to swirl and turn a little bit in some of the mountain areas. It is starting to come down. It is burning in the under control areas in isolated pockets. They cannot get on top of it until it comes out of the bush. You had been there for a few days now and had the worst of the devastation. UN has an amazing stories. Share some with us. The people were prepared and ready to move and act. They thought that they had three hours to get away. It suddenly came down over the top of a mountain range in came towards the homes in three or four minutes. It caught them by surprise and they had to flee for their lives. We spoke to one man. He was defending his home. He had a very good fire plan set up. He had irrigation systems. He had pumps. This fire bomb hit his home and he had no option but to jump in the dam. He's sitting in the dam and then he thought, hang on, maybe I have made a mistake. Listened to what happened to him there, surrounded by the dam.When I got in the damn, I thought it was the right thing to do. It turned out to be the worst thing I had ever done. The fireball and the wind and speed were like a tornado. I could not look up and that could not breathe the air. I had to keep my nose about one millimetre above the air and the air still burned my throat and lungs and eyes. I do not know how I survived. I'm surprised. I thought I was gone.Joe was still shaken today after injury that on Friday. He doesn't know where to turn at the moment because he does not want people to make the same mistake that he did. He's hoping that the rule fire services across Australia will hear his lesson and adopted it to some of their procedures. And actually show to people what happens when you think they have a damn and think that there will be your salvation and it became the worst thing that he could do. He was very lucky and it sounds like there are still some tough days ahead for people in that area. The Prime Minister has toured the areas of Tasmania devastated by bushfire, thanking emergency workers and comforting victims. Julia Gillard standing where Dunalley primary school once stood. If this was the local school room, it would be hitting you pretty hard. She considered students.It is sad to see a school like this.The school is the second home, so you would feel a loss like this.All of the things in a classroom and the art that you made and the memories. She was impressed by the stories of unity spirit.We have a great nation.We do. You see some amazing things, what people will do for each other. People are pulling together and there are heaps of donations of food and toiletries.Generosity is that the Prime Minister is keen to match. She announced that that donations to bushfire appeals about tax deductible.For Australians away thinking that they wanted to do something to help, make a cash donation and come tax time, you will be able to see some of the benefit of doing that.She promised to help support anyone who have lost their home, business, workplace, or a school. The Federal Government would give adults $1,000 and $400 per child.We are thinking of you in these moments of grief and despair. We will be working with you in the days to come.Bpm praised the emergency services for their tireless efforts on the frontline, in the devastated communities, the evacuation centres and in the control rooms.They queue for everything.She thanked those for -- who have come into state. Such as the Victorians who returned the favour. After the Tasmania's helped out in the 2009 bushfires.I think that they are showing great Australian Nature that during what is an incredibly difficult time.With the state still on fire alert, she urged Australians to remember that it may not be over.We need to remember that this fire emergency is not yet over. Fires are still being fought and depending of what it happens with temperatures and wind conditions in the next few days, we could see fires once again destroying things in Tasmania. The message is to keep the police listening to local announcements. The same warning applies to people across the country as temperatures are set to soar off. An 18-year-old charged with the manslaughter of 22-year-old Melbourne man David Cassai in a New Year's Eve brawl has been granted bail with strict conditions. 18-year-old Dylan Closter will have to meet strict bail conditions but a day in court we heard for the first time his account of what happened in the early hours of January for a first. The court was told that the 18-year-old told police that he was at a carnival on the foreshore for drinking with his mates at a nearby park. He then said that he ran into the victim's group, including David Cassai when he crossed the road use and ATM. He told police that he had seen one of the men from David Cassai's group rip up a street sign so he yelled out, what do you think you're doing? It was then that the fight erupted. Homicide squad detective told the court that he was very vague about what happened next. He claimed that he was punched and kicked to the ground and that when he got up he saw someone standing over him so that he lashed out. Police are alleging that the CCTV footage shows no evidence of Dylan Closter being Palm straw cake by anyone and only show the attack on David Cassai. Dylan Closter's defence lawyers claim otherwise. They described him as a victim as well.He indicated to the police during his interview that he was kicked and punched when he was on all fours. The gravity of the outcome certainly over balances the situation.As we reported earlier, the Belle -- bail conditions are strict. He will lead to report to police three times per week. He has put up a $50,000 charity. He cannot leave Victoria and is due to leave quartic -- returned to court in April. More than 300 police and support staff face the axe in Queensland in a shock attempt to cut bureaucracy and boost frontline officers. How do you cut police numbers and boost the frontline?The theory is that that by trimming the fat out of the Queensland police services, it will enable them to add some frontline muscle. Over 100 senior commissioned officers such as Superintendents, chief Superintendents, inspectors, will be cut as well as over 200 none sworn police staff. In announcing this raft of changes, the new police commissioner also detailed a streamlining of Queensland producing regions. The state is currently split into eight regions. That will be cut down to five regions. That will cut down regional offices and administration and ultimately cut costs. That is what this is about. About $5 million is the target. They believe that there will enable them to add 50 more junior officers are to frontline policing. The commissioner said that he understands that this is going to hit the police ranks hard. He said that their aim is to basically increase and improve the police service. He conceded that the bottom line was also at the forefront of their mind.Our focus is to stop crime, to make the community safer and to build relationships every day. We will be the centrepiece of throughout this period and into the future. Our focus is about ensuring that every dollar of the Community money and a government money is spent in the most appropriate way. Value for money has been keep to this restructure.When that these cuts likely to take place? The commissioner says that 1st July is the date for the restructured to take place. Most of these jobs are will initially go as a result of a voluntary redundancies. They are not sure how many of those will be taken up. After that point, they will start swinging the axe. There is no provision inside the police force for forced redundancies. It is a job for life and has always been that way. They will have to read legislated to enable them to forcibly remove people's jobs. This is going to be unprecedented. -- People's'. This is going to hit the police Braveheart. Usually the only big kangaroos hanging around airports are on the tails of Qantas planes. But today, a real-life version caused mayhem at Melbourne airport. There was no need for tourists to venture far from the airport to see the national icon. It came to them. It was nice to have a kangaroo visiting us. Maybe it will hop on a plane?The 3-year-old Eastern male grey kangaroo became disoriented and lost on the car park. It played a game of hide and seek with police and security staff, much the amusement of onlookers.They are a lot of people for one kangaroo.And wildlife officer was eventually called in to sedate the animal. Judging from his nail where, he has been hopping around on bitumen for some time. He has done damage to his feet and he has been in pain. That was to our benefit, it prevented him from panicking and jumping over the railing.He was physically exhausted, his nails bleeding.The level of pain in comparison to having your nails ripped out.Kangaroos are no strangers to the chaos of the airport car park. Last October, another eastern grey made it to level five. It was captured and eventually released back into the wild.It is a case of attempting to ensure their safety. So that they do not get displaced and end up in areas. We do not want them to be here, they do not want to be here. The latest jet setter has been taking for monitoring and will be given pain relief for his injuries until well enough to return to the wild. Sport now - and an eventful day for Shane Warne?

Shane Warne says he won't appeal his one-match suspension for last night's fiery outburst with West Indian all-rounder Marlon Samuels. It means the spin king will now miss the Melbourne Stars crucial match against the Sydney Thunder tomorrow night. A calm and composed Shane Warne. Good morning.He wasn't quite as polite last night.You want to grab some more people? (BLEEP) you mate! Warne fronting a hearing earlier this morning, found guilty on three of the four charges he faced for breaching Cricket Australia's code of conduct.I am disappointed in some of my actions last night. I am also disappointed in the severity of the penalties. That was pretty harsh.As well as the one-match ban, he was fined a total of $4,500. His original spray prompted by Marlon Samuels earlier grabbing Dave Hussey between wickets.It was absolutely ridiculous what he did. It then got more ridiculous later on.Warne throwing the ball at Samuels and the big West Indian firing right back.What is going on? But that is thrown.It may've been Warne's last Big Bash with the Stars needing to win without him tomorrow night to make the finals. I heard about the Big Bash. I'm not too happy.Wade was one of four test omissions from Australia's one-day squad, but that hasn't phased the keeper.I'm more than happy to rest. Will probably win the first match and then I want the other blokes back.The Test side still on cloud nine after their 5- wicket whitewash of Sri Lanka. Even more special - sending Mike Hussey out a winner.A pretty sacred area in the dressing room after the game. A pretty special thing. Hoping for some valuable match time before the Australian Open, Sam Stosur is preparing to take the court in round one of the Sydney International.Earlier, fellow Aussie James Duckworth blew his chance against Denis Istomin, losing in three tough sets.

tonight. We've got a ripping crowd
here tonight. Everyone's up on their toes,
ready to go because we've got $1 million
to give away if somebody's good enough. Six contestants ready to do it. 15 questions -
we all know how it all works. Hopefully tonight
somebody will win enough money just to change their life
in a positive way. All ready to go tonight, gang? AUDIENCE: Yes!
Alright. Let's meet the contestants. Over here we have Michael Houston. He wanted to skydive
in his underwear, the instructor said
"Put your pants on." Flight attendant Elisha Boon
accidentally mixed up her words when offering a passenger
spatchcock - oops! Mark Oraniuk
adopted three children from India who have embraced Aussie culture,
especially footy. Trish Skehan
pretended to be hypnotised on stage so she didn't ruin the show. Good stuff, Trish. Thomas Gainsborough painted
Kate Vella's relatives. The painting now hangs
in the Louvre. And at one of his gigs, Mike Bromley
was lucky enough to meet the Wild One,
Johnny O'Keefe, and his wife. Yeah!

Alright. Let's get ready to rumble.
Michael, you ready? Yeah, I'm all good. Let's do it.
