(generated from captions) Come on, Dad.

Are you telling me that between then

and when you showed up at the
Forrester mansion, you've had
a change of heart?

That's what you're asking me
to believe?

You have the same look on your face
that Nicole did when I told her.

I think she had a hard time
believing it, too.

But I guess people can change,
or at least it seems that way.

I mean, I'm sure he's not fully in
acceptance of me, but he's trying.

And for now, that's enough.

It's more than enough.

I don't want to think the worst,

but how can I reconcile
what you said to me

and then this sudden turnaround?

Were you lying to her, Daddy?

Did you honestly mean everything
that you said to her?

This program is captioned live. Tonight,
horrific murders in our west.

Tonight: Police have shot a man dead near Newcastle. A Grandmother and her grandson
are killed in the street. Police suspect ice might
have fuelled the killer. The government steps up. Australia will resettle
12,000 Syrian refugees. Women, children and persecuted
minorities will be the priority.

For the first time,
we are also set to drop bombs on Sunni militants inside Syria. It starts within days.

The stuntman who paid with
his life.chasing a cheap thrill. Lucky Chance died doing this
in the Blue Mountains. And family and friends rush
to Buddy Franklin's side. He'll need all that support to
get better and playing once more.

ANNOUNCER: This is Ten Eyewitness
News - First at Five - with Sandra Sully and Hugh
Riminton. First tonight, to a family tragedy
that has shocked the country.

Breaking news first - police have shot a man several times at Warners Bay near Newcastle. The man has died. We received the following video into the newsroom. We warn you it is confronting. It shows several police confronting a man who was armed with a large butcher's knife. You can hear police pleading with the man to drop his weapon. (SHOTS) He was shot at least three times. Witness reports are coming in from those at the scene. They say the man appeared distressed in the minutes leading to the shooting. The police have set up a crime scene to investigate the shooting. We will have more on this breaking news at it comes to us. Now a family tragedy that shocked Sydney. A 63-year-old woman and her
7-year-old grandson have been stabbed to death
in Lalor Park. The man accused
of the murders is the woman's son, and the boy's uncle. As if that isn't bad enough,
the entire terrifying crime was witnessed by the boy's siblings who were understandably
beside themselves last night. So too were police,
who needed counselling. As Josh Fajzullin reports, it's believed the drug ice played
a major part. This is the man charge with
the murder of his mother and young nephew - handcuffed and taken into
custody. It was late last night
when police discovered the body of a 63-year-old grandmother
outside the family home. Next door lay the body
of her seven-year-old grandson. I cried when I heard about the boy. I can't believe it I's disgusting. It's scary. Really, really scary. Late last night police were called to the Lalor Park address. They arrived too late. The victims had been brutally stabbed to death. Er I spoke to the officers. They're visibly and physically shaken. Three young children witnessed it. They eefr all related.The death of a young child and their grandmother, both at the same time, very hard to comprehend. It's believed the man had
a history of using ice and had only recently returned from rehab. Family friends have described
the grandmother as having a heart of gold -
the nicest person in the street. The little boy - a top little kid. The little boy and and his sister
were inseparable. All the other kids that were many the house, the other people living in the house, they will have to live with this for the rest of their lives. The accused has been refused bail.
He's due to face court in November. Today marks a significant shift
in our country's role in the Syrian civil war, the
impacts of which are spreading. As the Prime Minister put it, we must think with our heads
and our hearts. He has gone beyond Labor's demands, announcing plans to resettle,
permanently, 12,000 Syrians,

Now to this package from Adam Todd.

Utter desperation - Syrian refugees
push past police and rush across the Hungarian border as they
flee their war-torn homeland. A world away in Canberra the Prime
Minister outlined Australia's response to the crisis. It's important that we act with
our head as well as with our heart here.

Government officials will be
dispatched to the Middle East and Europe to begin vetting
candidates for resettlement. It is really important that we
don't bring in anyone from this troubled region who might
ultimately be a problem. It's an about-turn from the
Prime Minister, who just days ago dismissed any
additional refugee intake, but pressure from the public and his
colleagues couldn't be ignored. Good on the Prime Minister
for listening. He has made a difference to
the lives of 12,000 people. Labor welcomes this decision and I know Australia will welcome
these refugees. It's a very good start in what is
the most serious crisis the world has seen in terms of refugee
movement since World War II. The first refugees aren't expected
to arrive until Christmas, but community groups are already
getting ready, such as this parish run
by tennis legend Margaret Court. There's plenty of food, clothing,
blankets. We can even rally for kitchen
things and things like that. And it's going to be needed.

Let's go to Matt Moran now for more on the shift
in our military focus with bombing set to start
inside Syria. Matt, the PM says
the Assad regime in Syria is evil, but we won't bomb his forces. Why not?

Well, he says we don't have the legal basis for why the strikes in Syria are there at the moment. I spoke to a former army chief today. He says that Syria is a failed state. The key is that Gulf states need to take a greater role in that region. Within days our strike aircraft
will be taking out targets such as these in Syria. We are targeting the death cult. Their mission owe to to destroy
the self-proclaimed Islamic State, but they'll stay away
from the brutal Syrian regime. Do we want Assad gone?
Of course we do. Do our military operations
contribute to that at this time? No, they don't. The Government says the legal
basis for these operations is the collective self-defence of Iraq. That is certainly a valid basis. CSD is where
a state can ask other states to assist it dealing with a threat. While we're expanding
our air strikes, we won't be increasing the number
of planes involved in the fight. We are approved for up to
eight aircraft at the moment. I don't envisage that will change,
that number from 6 to 8. Labor backs the strikes. The swamp
of terrorism can never be drained by military means alone and all in
this Parliament understand that. But others believe our contribution
will make a bad situation worse. We will see the conditions
for terrorism be further enhanced through this military action. Defence expert Peter Jenningss
says we could do more. I would say let's add
a bit more weight in terms of additional aircraft and
intelligence gathering resources. At the moment the Government has
taken a small but important step. It will help disrupt. It may go towards degrade, but in terms of the stated campaign aims, it won't destroy. Air power won't destroy this force. Australia is now involved
in a small but growing number of nations targeting ISIL in Syria
and there are calls for a bigger effort from countries
such as France, UK and Germany. I think we will see more boots
on the ground, but I think in the life of the next US President. Mission creep -
in the name of saving lives. If a pilot is shot down over Syria, there are rescue plans in place. The key thing is the United States would lead any rescue mission. A base jumper who changed
his name to Lucky Chance after a brush with death has died. He suffered massive head injuries
when a stunt known as the death swing went horribly wrong. Ellesa Throwden reports.

Lucky Chance's life came to an end here. His real name was Toby Benham. Those who knew him say
his untimely end was inevitable. You know if you said to him,
"Don't do this, Lucky, you'll die", he would say, "Don't be silly". He just didn't think anything
was going to happen to him. At Hanging Rock in the
Blue Mountains yesterday he was swinging from a rope
and crashed into the cliff face.

The circus performer
and base jumper cheated death at the same spot in 2011,
attempting his 100th jump. I don't know how I managed to
survive, but I landed standing on the ground. Weeks after that misadventure
Lucky Chance was fighting for life in a French hospital
after a cliff jump went wrong. His life was a minefield
of near-death experiences. Yesterday rescue workers
risked their lives, too. Anyone considering engaging in
high-risk activities such as this, that you simply don't do it, so
that you're not at risk and you don't put emergency services
at risk. Lucky had dreams of being famous and was moving to France in
November to start a performance business. His motto was, 'You only live once,
might as well live it'. He was 32. Despite the risks, Lucky didn't
think it would all end like this.

A decade ago, the sporting world would have
reacted very differently. But thankfully, there has been
nothing but messages of support and encouragement
for the Swan's Buddy Franklin who's taken time out
because of mental health issues. His father has flown to Sydney
to support his son, and today thanked fellow players
and fans for their good wishes. Here's Daniel Sutton. A top athlete battling his demons. Buddy Franklin is far from
the only one, but health advocates say the timing of the Swans
star's admission is telling. If this club on the eve
of finals is prepared to say an individual's health is more
important than winning a game, then that's the strongest signal
you can possibly send. Today from around the country
kind words came flooding in. Just as players, we all support him
and really hope he's alright. Whatever he's dealing with,
he's not alone and he's got support everywhere. And in Sydney,
Buddy's father Lance Senior, who told Ten News he's grateful for the
good wishes his son is receiving. Among the messages on social media,
this from the Swans' Chairman:

And from Brendan Fevola:

That's very brave
of him. I mean, he could have just
pretended to have an injury. I mean, a physical injury,
instead of a mental injury. Sir Richard Branson is
an ambassador for R U OK Day, which is tomorrow. Another supporter is
Wendell Sailor.

That's their hero and if they hear
him, that he's going through some tough times, and he's going to
talk to his mum and dad or someone about that,
then the next lot of kids, they'll know it's OK to talk about
your feelings as where it's at. One half of a glamour couple -
Buddy's fiancee Jesinta Campbell remains in Japan filming a TV show. Their manager says Franklin
asked her not to race home. The Swans revealed that Buddy has mild epilepsy and recently suffered a se sure - unrelated to his mental health issue but the two conditions can be linked.The electro-chemical disruption in a seizure can cause depression.Epilepsy had not sidelined Franklin but mental health has for now. His team will fly to Perth tomorrow without him and it is unclear when buddy will return. Still to come, we're live
at the NRL judiciary as George Burgess finds out his
Finals fate.

There was more frustration
for Sydney drivers this morning as not one but two
over-height trucks tried to enter the Harbour Tunnel
during the morning peak. One truck got stuck in the tunnel,
while the other stopped just short of the entrance. Motorists were backed up all
the way to Epping, while the trucks were removed. To the chopper now for a quick
update on Sydney traffic now. What have you got for us?Sandra, good afrp. We're checking the run through lid comb. There is an accident. It is? The citybound direction on Parramatta Road. We are seeing delays in the area for that outbound run T westbound run is heavy. The citybound run on the M4 and the westbound journey through from the M2, Lane Cove Road, very slow through to Pennant Hill Roads. Sun glare issues on the m7 towards the M4. An investigation into Goulburn jail
has found surveillance systems at the maximum security prison are
embarrassingly out of date. The inquiry was sparked by the
recent broad daylight getaway by armed robber Stephen Jamieson, and the minister responsible says
he is concerned by the findings. Here's Adam Walters. As the Government was showing off
a new device that detects whether prisoners are carrying mobile
phones, it was revealed that security systems in Goulburn jail
were anything but state of the art. That is a concern to me,
the fact that technology and the resources and the infrastructure at
Goulburn jail has not caught up. And it couldn't catch convicted
armed robber Stephen Jamieson. After a failed bid to dig
his way to freedom, Jamieson then used bedsheets to scale a wall,
a pillow to protect himself from razor wire, and a hacksaw blade to
cut his way through a third fence. He was arrested ten hours
later near Narellan. In the three weeks
since a report a report has found a 19th century jail - that also
houses the Supermax wing for Australia's most dangerous inmates
- is just not secure enough. Clearly having a facility that was
builted around 1880 presents some challenges in relation to having
technology deployed in a way that is most effective. Its own report earlier
this year told the Government what they needed to do - address
the issues of overcrowding, address the issues of low staff morale. The report prepared
by independent investigators from New Zealand found it was not just
out dated technology that was to blame for the
embarrassing escape. The Commissioner confirmed that
human error was also a factor. There's an internal investigation
that deals with the circumstances of the escape. But security is improving in 15
of the state's maximum and medium security jails with the
introduction of this scanner that can detect mobile phones hidden
in clothing and body cavities. This new technology will make it
a lot easier to make sure that people that are found to bring
contraband in are charged. Most phones are smuggled
into jails by family members, who face the real danger of joining
their loved ones behind bars if caught with the contraband. Arachnophobes, look away now. Scientists have discovered a new
species of the deadly and rather
evil-looking funnel-web spider. It was found in a mouldy log at
Jervis Bay on the NSW south coast. Instead of running away, they decided to pick it up
and study it. The female's body
measured 5cm long. To the weather now with
Amanda Hart. Amanda, I'm almost too afraid to
ask given how glorious it is, but how long will this weather last? Luckily, right up into the weekend,
Sandra. It wasn't just Sydney that
enjoyed clear skies today. Most of NSW was fairly clear,
there was just a bit of low level cloud along the NSW coast. The band of cloud over Tasmania
brought a few showers. And an approaching cold front
brought bit of late cloud in south-west WA. The high pressure system in
the Bight is slowing moving east, which is pushing a low pressure
system in the Tasman further away. But it's still directing southerly
winds up the Victorian and NSW coasts,
causing a few light showers. A trough in the west is drawing hot
northerly winds down to the south of the state,
but it won't last for long, thanks to that approaching cold front. It was a cold morning
across the state today, and it stayed cool in the south. There were a few odd showers
around too. It was warm in north. And tomorrow, Sydney should be
partly cloudy, with a top of 20.

Up next, the Pope announces another
big change for the Catholic Church. Also, no easy return to work for
the man who killed Cecil the Lion. And all hail the Queen as she
celebrates a remarkable milestone.

14 people have been treated
for minor injuries after a British Airways jet caught fire
on the runway in Las Vegas. The London-bound Boeing 777 was
preparing for take off when one of its engines caught alight. The take off was aborted with all
passengers and crew scrambling to escape on emergency slides. We got a little problem with
the British Airways aeroplane on the right-hand side. There were 159 passengers
and 13 crew on board. The cause of the fire
is still unclear. The American dentist who killed
a prized African lion has been greeted by angry protesters
as he timely returned to work. After six weeks in hiding
following his safari shooting of Cecil, Walter Palmer reopened
his practice, despite continued calls for his prosecution. He's despicable. He's a killer. He's a murderer. Poor Cecil. I mean, how many lions do we have left? Do you have to kill them all? No charges have been laid. A US county official who refused to
issue marriage licences to gay couples has been released from jail
after nearly a week behind bars. A hero to conservative Christians,
she was given a rapturous welcome by supporters.

MUSIC: 'The Eye of the Tiger'.I want to give God the glory. His people have rallied. You are a strong people. Marriage licences are now being
issued by her deputies and a judge has ordered her not to intefere. Pope Francis has announced
the biggest change in centuries to the way
the Catholic Church views divorce. The pontiff has streamlined
the process, scrapping a lengthy review process
in favour of allowing Bishops to directly grant annulments. Although the Catholic Church
still doesn't officially recognise divorce,
the change is expected to stop people from leaving the church. What they are trying to do is they
are trying to make it a quicker process,
that is the first thing, and make it a free process
eventually, or one that costs very little. The new rules are the biggest
change to Catholic annulment laws since the 17th century. Britain's national anthem expresses
the hope the Queen will long reign over us. Well, she has. Queen Elizabeth today set a new
record as the longest reigning monarch in British history,
surpassing the milestone set by her great-great-grandmother, Victoria. Typically, she marked the day,
without a fuss, as Hannah Maguire reports. She became Queen by a twist
of fate and now Elizabeth II is the longest reigning monarch
in British history. She's been on the throne
for 63 years, seven months and two days, overtaking her great-great
grandmother Queen Victoria. They have both been incredible
sources and forces of stability during points of intense and
incredible, unprecedented change. But Queen Elizabeth was
never meant to rule. It was only that her childless
uncle, Edward VIII, abdicated the throne to Mary
a twice-divorced American. Her father George VI was
then elevated to king. And when he died of cancer
it was up to his fresh-faced 25-year-old to take charge. Six decades later she's seen 12
Prime Ministers and visited 128 countries,
including Australia 16 times.

For the milestone to be reached by the Queen in a few hours time, it is extraordinary and it should be acknowledged. This visit
in 2011 will likely be her last. While the 89-year-old has cut
back on overseas travel, she doesn't seem to be slowing down. Royal watchers say she'll remain
firm on the throne 'til the very end. I think she becomes more valuable
as a Queen the longer that she lives because
she has got a fantastic memory and so she has this huge historical
database of material that she can bring into play at any point. It will be a fuss-free milestone
for Her Majesty, who's set to jump aboard a steam train to open
a new railway in Edinburgh. She'll then enjoy dinner with
the future of the monarchy for a private family celebration.

Still to come, Australian
schools sounding out the basics. Plus, just how much
sleep do children need? And the dangerous predator
Australia exported to the world. Wrapping up the day in finance and
the Australian share market has another good day, rising 2 per cent
to close more than 100 points up.

Welcome back to Ten News. The Queensland Police Union is
fighting back amid more claims of police brutality on the Gold Coast. An officer has resigned after video
showed him punching a handcuffed man, but the union says it's street
cops who are the real victims. Lauren Day has more. It's the punch that shocked the state. A police officer hitting handcuffed 21-year-old Brayden Mechen in the face. It's what the images don't reveal that has police fuming.The alleged offender has spat in the face of the police officer, hence the police officer has struck that person back.The CCTV footage shows the victim and a friend in Surfers Paradise this last year. The two became involved in a fight with someone else before Mr Mechen puts his hands on an officer's shoulders and is restrained.I was just trying to help my mate. He didn't do anything wrong: The officer involved, Matthew Neijmen, has resigned.When people spit in the face, it's one of the most degrading acts.Ian Leavers admitted he has thrown a punchI have done that myself.Mr Mechen's three charges of assaulting police have now been withdrawn. The charges were withdrawn on a technicality. He denies spitting at the officer. I'm backing myself 100% because I know I didn't do anything wrong. This is the latest video to surface in recent months showing Gold Coast police appearing to show excessive force. The Police Union says it fears officers may not defend themselves in future and instead suffer serious or life-threatening injuries. The Government will now speed up plans to equip Coast officers with body cameras. Time for a traffic update
with Alf Paranihi. You have spotted problems at Gladesville? Hugh, good evening. That is right. It's in the westbound direction on Victoria Road as you head towards the Gladesville Bridge. A car broke down in the left-land lane causing delays through to the Iron Cove Bridge. Take ex-that care. We're looking at the Ryde Bridge slow southbound towards Homebush through to Olympic Park. Problems for the M5 East Main Tunnel in the westbound direction from King Georges Road citybound towards the M5 East Main Tunnel. Most of us learned to read
using phonics, the method where you break-up words
and sound them out, but it's an almost lost skill
in today's primary schools and now our teachers are being told
to go back to basics. Jessica Turner reports. It's the first thing children learn
when they go to school, discovering how to sound out words. What sound when we put them
together, does it make? 'Sh' - that's right.
Can everyone say 'sh'? They're learning to read using
a teaching method calls phonics, breaking down words
to help sound them out. So when a student comes
across a word they don't know, they can work it out. Teaching phonics is
really important. It's the bedrock of literacy. But it's a skill that many
teachers have forgotten because it hasn't been a priority in
teacher courses until last year. We want to make sure that teachers
get taught how to teach phonics and throughout their entire career they
are supported the whole way along to make sure it's taught very well. This new book provides
important homework for them. The booklet brings together
a wide range of ideas that might be familiar to many teachers
but it gives all teachers a sound basis on what is phonics. I found it really useful and
there are strategies we can use to cater for all kinds of learners. This kindergarten class is catching
on fast, except for a few words. Mr Pickles!
Hey, I've been called worse. Even the big kids get
caught out sometimes. Teaching students
say...Ah! This booklet isn't just a guide
for teachers. There are resources in here
for parents, too, to help them support their children at home. They're now available
for schools to purchase.

Australian researchers are
challenging the long held notion that lots of sleep, for children,
is essential for good health. A new theory suggests,
it's not how much but the quality of sleep that
matters. Nicole Strahan explains.

A good night's sleep is child's
play for five-year-old Emmett Savona. We can do this. But it wasn't the case
when he was a baby. He was having all-up 6-7
hours sleep, that was up every hour during the day.
He was constantly being breastfed. By the time he reached seven
monthses his mother was exhausted and worried his development would
be affected but a Murdoch Children's Research Institute study
of more than 4,000 children has found there's no direct link
between how many hours of sleep a child gets and poor health. Instead, the quality
of sleep may be the key. What we found was
really surprising. We were expecting to see
associations between how much children slept
and their wellbeing and behaviour and we found no such association. Scientists will study
if other sleep issues affect health
and wellbeing. Perhaps it's the quality during
the night - so when you're going to bed, when you're getting up, how
much you're waking up overnight. That's more important than
the amount of sleep you're getting. It's recommended infants get
at least 14 hours sleep a day, toddlers at least 12, and primary schoolchildren about
10 hours a night. Researchers say these are still
useful guidelines for parents. As for Emmett, before he turned one
his mum took him to a clinic for babies and now he sleeps soundly. He sleeps 11-12 hours. He goes to
bed about 7.30 at night and doesn't get up until 7.00/7.30 the
next morning. Although he
does like the light off. Because that makes
me close my eyes. So it's all sweet dreams.

Scientific theories
about Australia's pre-historic history have been turned
on their head after the discovery of bones of Australia's largest
predatory dinosaur. Meet the mega raptor, a 7m long
meat eater with 25cm claws. The beast roamed Australia 110
million years ago and its bones have been found
in the opal fields near Lightning Ridge in north-western NSW. Scientists originally believed
dinosaurs arrived in Australia from elsewhere, but this discovery
proves they originated right here and then migrated to other parts
of the world. Stay with us, we've got more
on tonight's big stories. And in sport, we'll cross live to
league headquarters as George Burgess appeals to the
judiciary while another NRL star gets
pumped up for his return from suspension. And one
of Australian sport's nice guys bids farewell to the baggy green.

Tonight's top stories: A man has
been shot dead by police after charging
at them armed with a knife. Witnesses say he appeared
distressed in the moments leading up to the shooting. A Critical Incident Team will now
investigate all circumstances surrounding the incident,
including the actions of police. A grandmother and her 7-year-old
grandson have been killed in a horrific attack in Sydney's West. The man accused of the murders is
the boy's uncle, and woman's son. And: Prime Minister Tony Abbott has
announced Australia will permanently resettle 12,000 Syrian
refugees, and has confirmed our bombing campaign against ISIL
will extend into Syrian territory. It's time for the day
in sport with Matt Burke. Matt, Souths Premiership hopes
may hinge on tonight's hearing
at the NRL judiciary? With the Bunnies coming
off three heavy losses they're desperate to reduce the two-week
ban handed out to George Burgess to just one for throwing that water
bottle at Kane Evans. Liam Cox is live at Rugby League
headquarters and, Liam, this is one of
the more bizzare cases we've seen?

It stunned the rugby league world rment. The joirt of people will admit it was a stupid thing to do. While it can't be condoned the punishment doesn't fit the crime. To miss two finals' matches for throwing an empty water bottle at a player and missing - it's a gross overreaction. The boss of the match review committee was the boss for a long time, one of the leading refugees for a very long time as well, one of the most respected people in the game, very fair and balanced-minded individual. He has a really good solution that makes commonsense to this problem. I think a fine would have
a far greater impact for that sort of thing rather than a suspension
and I hope this message, if it's a suspension of two matches
or even one with the plea with the downgrade, that the message gets
through, while we don't want you all to be role models, we want
you all to behave yourselves.

Well said there. I have spoken with Souths. They are confident of receiving a downgrade tonight, which would mean George Burgess would miss one match against the Sharks this weekend. It's the finalings, rugby league's showpiece and we want the best players on the biggest stage. Let's home commonsense prevails tonight. Nathan Brown was officially
unveiled as Newcastle coach this afternoon, and with the Knights roster needing
a drastic overhaul, Brown may target Robbie Farah
and Todd Carney as recruits for next season, while Carney's former club Cronulla welcome back a fired-up
Andrew Fifita from suspension for Sunday's
elimination final against Souths. He's got a lot of X factor. Not a lot of big men can do what
Andrew can do, move the way he does, the skill he has and he just
brings that extra big body for us and takes the pressure of Gal. Wade Graham revealed it would be a
dream come true to make the Grand Final after the Sharks finished
2014 with the wooden spoon. The Socceroos have jumped to
the top of their World Cup qualifying group but their win over
Tajikistan was far from pretty. Australia's 3 goals all came
in the second half. Tim Cahill grabbed a double.

This team is inexpensed in national level T more we expose them to the challenges, the better they will be. The Socceroos next cup qualifier
is away to Jordan next month Brad Haddin says he lost
his love for the long form of the game, that's why he's called time
on Test and first class cricket. After a tough Ashes tour, the
Aussie keeper knew it was time to end a career that spanned
66 tests. Veronica Eggleton reports. Flanked by his family,
one of cricket's good guys struggled to say goodbye. It means a lot. Hayfever! Brad Haddin's test career was
an unlikely one. The wicket keeper debuted at 30
and had the daunting task of taking over from Adam Gilchrist.

Passionate and at times polarising,
he was the team's rock. But this year's Ashes
tour signalled the end. The 37-year-old was dropped
after missing the Lord's Test to be with his sick daughter. I lost that fight to continue. I was always about trying to make
myself the best cricketer I could be every time I went out
on the training paddock. Haddin will play on the Big Bash
this summer, but his retirement continues a changing of the guard. He's now the fourth veteran to pull
up stumps since the Ashes opener. We've got great guys coming
through who'll get opportunities now to play for Australia. So I think we're
in a pretty healthy state. That can't be said for Australia's
one day middle order, who struggled in the third one
dayer against England overnight. Set 301 to chase,
the home side's spin kings made light work of Australia's batsman. George Bailey picks him out,
absolutely perfectly. Aaron Finch was the only Aussie
to crack half a century. The side all out for 207 -
93 runs short. It was an opportunity missed to
really drive the team into a winning position and I take
full responsibility for that. Australia holds a 2-1 series lead
ahead of the next match at Headingley in two days.

That controversial sledge has seen Nick Kyrgios dumped for next week's tie against Great Britain and been replaced by Tomic. At the US Open Novak Djokovic overcame Feliciana -- Feliciano Lopez. Venus had Serena scrambling but she spul pulled it together in the third. Not that you could tell from her mood after.It's 11.30, to be perfectly honest, I don't want to be here. I just want to be in bed right now and I have to wake up early to practise. I don't want to answer any of these questions. You guys keep asking me the same questions. Kristina Mldenovich showed off her soccer skills before losing to Vinci. Wayne Rooney made this penalty in the qualifier against Switzerland.

A record-breaking Wayne Rooney. Number 50.I will enjoy tonight with my wife. After breaking Sir Bobbie Charlton's long-standing 50. This is also Play of the Day. I don't know how we gave the Brits a Play of the Day. Up next. T weather. Stick around.

Good evening. I don't think Sydney could ask for
more spectacular spring weather. Today was flawless. And come the weekend,
warm northerly winds will really bring on the heat.

But all good things must come to
an end, and rain is expected early
next week, when a front moves in. On the satellite today, there
wasn't much cloud over NSW - there was a bit of low and middle
level patchy cloud over the coast, which brought a few very light
showers. Otherwise, most of the cloud was
over Tasmania, bringing showers
to the west and far south. And there's a bit of cloud starting
to enter south-west WA, which is associated with a cold
front. Tomorrow, the high pressure
system will continue to move slowly over the south east. This will direct moist onshore
winds to coastal parts of Victoria and NSW,
bringing a few light showers. It'll also keep the mornings cool, and bring fog to most southern
inland areas. While a trough in the west will
continue to draw heat down from the north to the south. But it won't last for long, a front
will start to bring showers to the south-west, cooling things down.

The rain in the south-east
of the country will mostly be on the NSW and Victorian coasts,
and in the morning. A few light showers
in the Queensland tropics, too. South-west WA will start to see
showers in the morning, becoming more widespread during the day.

Across the Sydney basin tomorrow,
Cloudy with a possible morning shower
in Gosford - but the rain should contract north during the day.

Everywhere else should
be fairly dry.

In the city,
tomorrow should be partly cloudy, with the slight chance of
a morning shower along the coast.

27 degrees on Saturday,
which is 7 above average. Stunning on Sunday. That's Ten Eyewitness News for now,
this Wednesday, September 9. We'll be back with updates
throughout the evening. Now Family Feud with Grant Denyer. Goodnight.
