Sunrise with Sam and Mike Amor. Good morning. That big decision for Led Zeppelin
is coming up. Also this morning,
is this the world's ugliest dog? A pooch with a comb-over
is looking to scoop top prize. But we'll begin with some breaking
news - here's Nat.

That is ugly.That is something else.It's like Trump.It is

else.It's like Trump.It is like Trump.It is the Trump of Dogs. As we go to air, fire crews are currently
at the scene of a huge blaze in Sydney. Seven News reporter Jessica Dietrich
is at Greenacre.

Jess, have they managed
to contain it yet?

Well, no, Nat, it

Well, no, Nat, it is still very much burning behind me. Lots of thick black smoke in the air. It started shortly after 3.30 this morning. We have just spoken to some witnesses on the other side of the street. They say they heard a massive blast before flames the street. They say they heard a
massive blast before flames up to 20m started shooting into the air. A huge inferno here this morning. The thick black smoke can be seen and smelt fromkm away. There were a number of road diversions put in place. That will impact traffic on the way to work. It is still a developing story. We will bring you any developments later today. developing story. We will bring you
any developments later today.Is it in some kind of factory. What about houses around there, units, any residents being evacuated?Well, Nat, it's actually just an till road. We had thought initially it was a car wrecking yard but we have just been told by some workers on the other side of the street, it's actually a blind and awning business. They don't believe that there has been anyone using that factory for some time. So we are not hearing of any injuries but fire and rescue have thrown a lot of crews at it, they are treating as a fist alarm fire. They have got at least 10 fire trucks here.How far are the roads blocked off. How much of an impact will that be this morning?OK, where we have, we are about 100m in front of me is the Hume Highway. They have got a few - at least three diversions in place there. It's a long stretch of road. It goes into all arteries of Sydney. It will be impacting traffic. I mean, it is still very early this morning. We are not seeing that impact just yet but that will be felt in the next hour or so.Any idea how long it will take them to completely contain it, Jess?Firies are owe caught up at the moment, Nat, we haven't been able to get an update from them. We do expect that this will be burning for several hours to come.OK, Jess. Thank you very much, live there at the scene in Greenacre. Police are hunting
for the driver of a ute who hit and killed a cyclist
in Melbourne's west. Police say the cyclist was riding down
Barkly Street at West Footscray when he was struck
by a white Holden Rodeo ute, just after 3:00 yesterday afternoon.

The 54-year-old died at the scene. The driver ran from the crash and
was last seen jumping over a fence. Detectives have released a photo
of a man they'd like to speak to, in relation to the fatal collision.

Two people have been taken
to hospital after a nasty crash on a motorway
in western Sydney overnight. A taxi and four-wheel drive collided
on the M7, near Kings Langley just after midnight. The taxi driver
and his female passenger were trapped for a short time. They were taken to hospital
in a stable condition for treatment. A family of five in the other car
including two children and a newborn escaped injury.

The road was closed while crash
investigators inspected the wreckage but it has since reopened.

Police are hunting a man who held up
a service station with a screwdriver in Sydney's west overnight. The man entered the shop at Lakemba
at around 11:00 and demanded cash from the till. The employee refused
to hand over the money and the man left empty-handed. He's described as being
of a thin build, in his mid 20s and 168cm tall.

The year's strongest Antarctic blast
has arrived, bringing freezing temperatures,
damaging winds, snow and hail to large parts of the country. Sunrise correspondents Amanda
Bachmann and Nathan Templeton join us now.

The front has caused a lot of damage in Melbourne.Yes, it was a wet and wild night across Victoria but particularly in Melbourne. Very heavy rain hit the CBD around the time of peak hour traffic which flooded the streets and made life very difficult for public transport users. There were also high winds. We had trees falling on to cars and homes had their roofs collapse because of water damage. Thankfully though, no injuries, there is worse on the way. We are expecting more heavy rain, also some hail and even snow down to a height of 500m, including out at the Dandenongs. It's bit early cold as well. Some parts of the state will structural to reach double figures. The forecast for the city, just around 10. Bracing for one of the chilliest days of the year.That is a low high. Amanda, let's go to you. What happened in Adelaide overnightWe have had another cold front come through overnight. That has brought strong winds and heavy rains. Adelaide has seen 19mm of rain since 9 o'clock yesterday morning. Parts of the hills have seen as much as 40mm. That meant there was some localised flooding and plenty of trees down. The SES was kept very busy with call outs for help. Suburban and Hills creeks also swelled as that rain just kept coming. The bureau says we have probably seen the worst of the rain but I am afraid that is not so with the wind. The bureau has issued a severe weather warning for strong winds, that includes the Adelaide Hills and The Metro area and the southern parts of the state. Some areas could see winds topping 90km/h. Here at Mount Lofty, we had been hoping for some snow. The bureau says that is unlikely to happen which is disappointing for are the people who have turned out here in the hope of seeing it. It is very, very cold here, I can tell you. It is just a couple of degrees but the wind chill factor brings back down into negative territory. It looks like it, thank you very much. There has been panic in Germany
this morning as a man armed with a gun stormed a cinema,
taking several people hostage. Seven News Europe correspondent
Cath Turner is following the story. Cath, what do we know so far.

This incident happened near Frankfurt in southern Germany around 2.30, a man armed with a weapon and wearing a mask walked into a cinema complex and that was the start of a terrifying three hour ordeal. A split second of confusion then they hit the floor, huddling
underneath the desk for cover. Seconds later,
there's a stampede towards the door, as dozens of people
run for their lives. The two employees keep their heads
down for a few moments and then make their move,
bolting for the exit. Outside, police from
a special response unit cordoned off the area
around the building. They received an emergency call saying there was an armed man
wearing a mask inside the cinema complex. The caller said four shots
had been fired. With the Orlando shooting
still fresh in everyone's minds, authorities feared a hostage
situation, with children inside.

Initial reports suggested up
to 50 people had been wounded. It was later confirmed
they suffered minor injuries when police used tear gas
during the operation. Officers found the gunman inside
with a number of hostages. He was shot dead.
No-one else was harmed. Authorities have suggested
the man was mentally unstable rather than a terrorist.

A relatively safe out come there, you can Seaby the scale of the police response, many European an cities are on edge. The final votes are being cast to determine whether Britain will
stay or leave the European Union. Seven News Europe bureau chief
Hugh Whitfeld is in London. Hugh, is there any indication
which way it's going to go?

Nat, it seems to be on a

Nat, it seems to be on a bit of a knife edge. One of the polls says remain will win, another says leave will win 52-48. As more than 45 million people who were registered to vote here, it looks likes it will be one of the record turnout here in Britain up and down the country. (REPORTERS SHOUT) British Prime Minister David Cameron
up early - eager to cast his vote
for the European referendum. But it's not up to just him
to decide if there will be a Brexit. 46 million people are registered
to have their say.

I can't even fathom leaving the EU. I dunno, Britain is part of the EU. It just wouldn't be the same
without it. I think that the wisdom
of the British people will filter through this process and there'll be a way
to get through this. The question - "should the United Kingdom remain
a member of the European Union "or leave?" Today's vote is a bit different
from other elections. I think the big difference
is that every vote counts. There are no safe seats
there are no marginal seats, there's no special areas where
politicians put their resources for swing voters. Every single vote is equal
no matter where you live. The polls will close shortly and
that's when the counting begins. There are 382 local counts
across the country which will feed
into regional centres. The official result is expected
to be announced later today.

Another indication of how things might go, 80% of the money that has been waged betting wise on an out come has placed on a remain victory. That saw the stock market strengthen and the pound firm in trading markets. That could also give us an indication to world market if there is a Brexit.Thank you very much. Bill Shorten is refusing to back
down on his Medicare scare campaign which has been labelled 'the biggest
lie of the election campaign'.

Seven News reporter Max Futcher
is in Canberra. Max, he's refusing
to repeat his earlier claim that privatising Medicare
is Coalition policy. But he says voters can trust him?

He does, Nat.

He does, Nat. Good morning. Yes, this final second last week of the campaign, of course, has been dominated by Labor's claims that a coalition government would privatise Medicare. We have seen the prime minister repeatedly deny this. The Australian medical association has also come out this week and said there is no indication that this will happen. But it remains a key part of Labor's attack on the coalition. Last night, Bill Shorten was accused of building false fears around this.They are spend ads million of taxpayer money to privatise the paymentThat's not private sizing Medicare.I can say to the people of Australia, that this election, and their vote on 2 July.Nearly 750,000 Australians have already made up their mind. Malcolm Turnbull will make his campaign launch in Sydney on Sunday. Led Zeppelin did not steal the opening riff of its classic
rock anthem Stairway To Heaven, according to a jury. The rock band was cleared this
morning of plagiarising the tune.

They were accused of copying
the melody from a song by the band Taurus.

One of the contenders for the
world's ugliest dog contest is getting attention because he has a hairstyle
similar to Donald Trump's. The pooch has a bald body, but makes up for it
with his flowing head of hair.

That's maybe where

That's maybe where Donald got the comb over from! He's currently in second place
on the online vote. The pup's owner thinks Donald Trump's popularity
in the presidential election will give him the edge he needs
to win.

He can be the mascot for the Donald's campaign.That is one hell of a cross-breed. I don't even know what is in there.That's a face only a mother could love.Let's get some weather. Sam Mac is at Fairfield High school this morning. Good morning. Hello, Sam. Fairfield High school this morning.
Good morning. Hello, Sam. Yes The team here at Fairfield, we would like to wish everybody a happy Friday. Happy Friday. Welcome to it. We are very excited to be here. They have got a plasma screen. Good timing. Give yourselves a round of applause for the sign. They have got the new stuff on the plasma. Very impressive set up. We will be spending the morning here. It's me, it's exactly how I dress as well with my school bag and my green shirt and my weird flares. Right on point. Let's check your weather around the country. Sunrise weather brought to you by Australia's number one probiotic,
Inner Health Plus, kept live and cool protected
in the fridge.

I just said to the students before, are there any past students. Annie, you told me somebody who used to come here?Beyonce.Apparently Beyonce used to go to the school. What year was that?1972.Did she really? That's amazing. So apparently, the Beyonce used to go to this school according to these guys. Are you ready? And the other exciting thing is, I mean, it has been a big week. Hopefully this morning, I will finally graduate from high school. Back to you.Good luck Sam. To all four correct viewers out there, Beyonce wasn't born then. Ahead this morning -
keep your phone handy. We're counting down to a $30,000
Cash Cow call. Plus, return to owner. Just wait till you see what people
leave behind in cabs. And in sport, the soaring Adelaide
Crows eye off a top four spot after their fifth win in row.

Sunrise sport brought to you
by the insurance company that really gets
how you use your car. Youi, we get you.

Beretts has the sport.

The Kangaroos insist they are still
an AFL premiership threat despite crashing to their third
straight defeat last night. North Melbourne copped a 33-point
hiding from the surging Crows at Adelaide Oval last night. And the scoreline would have been
much worse if the home side didn't kick
a club-record 28 behinds. The Crows have now won five matches
in a row. and are eyeing off a spot
in the top four. There's no easy games in this comp,
I've learnt that very quickly. But that said,
the guys are in a good space. Lindsay Thomas's miraculous goal
from the boundary line was a rare highlight for North. Suncorp Stadium officials
are unlikely to take action against Blues firebrand
David Klemmer for allegedly punching a hole
in a dressing room wall after State of Origin 2. Maroons star Michael Morgan
is in doubt for game 3 after suffering a knee injury. I was able to keep playing on it,
felt a bit weird more than anything. But... yeah,
it's just one of those things. And Blues hooker Robbie Farah will miss Wests Tigers' clash
with the Storm on Sunday through concussion. He was hit by a stray elbow from
his club captain, Aaron Woods, in the final minute of the match. A huge boost for reigning premier
league champions Leicester City with gun striker Jamie Vardy
agreeing to a new 4-year contract. The English international knocked
back a deal from Arsenal believed to be worth upwards
of $230,000 a week. Vardy is preparing

Avenue.

Oh, shut up.Seriously Sam, your sort of dough! for England's Euro 2016 knockout
clash against Iceland on Tuesday morning. All eyes are on Aussie basketballing
prodigy Ben Simmons in the countdown to this morning's
NBA draft. The 19-year-old is widely expected
to be the number one pick. That means he'll join up with former
Boomers coach Brett Brown at the Philadelphia 76ers. Brown also coached Ben's dad,
Dave Simmons, in the NBL. Simmons has opted not to represent
Australia at the Rio Olympics but says he's keen to play
for the Boomers in future.

Nike has recalled its signature
tennis dress for Wimbledon after backlash from players. They reportedly found the short-cut,
floating kit too revealing and said it impeded
their performance. Former French Open and US Open
doubles winner Lucie Hradecka

wore white leggings under the dress which could have been mistaken
for a top. The sportswear giant has asked
players to bring the dresses back to be lengthened, stressing it's VERY important.

At least 20 women
were expected to wear the design, including Canadian star
Eugenie Bouchard and Australian Open semi-finalist
Johanna Konta.

That is fair enough, it is too short.It looks like it would float up.It has slipts up the side, any time these girls are doing anything.It's digs gusting isn't it?It does pass the rules of the all England tennis club but it is clel.If you were just standing there in your scungies and a dress You don't wear your scungies. AA dress that is a top? It is very flowy fabric. If it was skimming the body more.I am going to drag out the all the England modesty rules.I imagine they should be strict. The struggling surging Crows. I don't know what that means. I don't think it means anything.Once again the other. They are surging, having a run at the moment. But struggling at They are surging, having a run at
the moment. But struggling at the same time.Race your description of the top dress.I like to give it something in the morning, something special. Coming up this Friday -
nightmare in Nigeria. Grave fears for Australians
kidnapped in a deadly ambush. Plus, Chinese kids
are Weet-bix kids. The buyers snapping up boxes of breakfast
cereal from our supermarkets to send them overseas. And the verdict is in. A jury decides whether Led Zeppelin
copied Stairway To Heaven.

At The Coffee Club,
I'm loving the fresh new menu that's bursting with flavour. The new twists on classic favourites
and some of my own creations like the smoked salmon
and cream cheese omelette. Taste the fresh new menu today.
Where will I meet you?

"rot in hell". It reports on the 22-year sentence
imposed on a father who raped his daughter
when she was aged between 11 and 13, and also watched
as others abused her. The Daily Telegraph has the headline
"Bill-nocchio". It says Labor leader Bill Shorten
has pinned his election hopes on a series
of discredited claims including - the GST will rise,
bulk billing will vanish and Australians won't be able
to afford to go to university under Malcolm Turnbull. The Herald Sun reports the Greens have made election
promises worth $123 billion. They'd paid for the spending spree, with a string of new taxes that
would force up the cost of living. The Courier-Mail says classroom
teachers in Queensland are set to be paid
six-figure salaries to ensure children continue
to be taught by high performers. And The Advertiser has the headline
"high five". It says the Crows have rolled
the Kangaroos by 33 points to extend their winning streak
to five.

Sunrise with Sam and Mike Amor. Hello again, and welcome to Friday. Coming up, should kids do chores? Of course they should.

Of course they should.Hello.The mum who reckons children should do nothing around the house. mum who reckons children should do
nothing around the house.Let them be kids. We have some breaking news. Here is Nat. Fire crews are at the scene
of a massive factory fire in south-western Sydney. Seven News reporter Jessica Dietrich
is at Greenacre. Jess, it could be a while
before it's brought under control?

That's right, Nat. Firefighters expect this to burn for a few hours

expect this to burn for a few hours
yet. This all started just around 3.30 this morning. We heard witnesses say there was a loud blast before they saw flames shooting into the sky. Huge fireballs seenkm away. We have just had an update from firefighters who have clarified that it did actually start in a car wrecking yard behind this street. A lot of car parts, potentially gas cylinders in the back there. It has exploded and caught on to this adjoining building behind me which is a blind and awning factory. We caught up with a witness just a short time ago. He said he didn't see anything suspicious or anyone running from the scene.About 2.30 this morning, I turned up and opened the roller doors. I heard like an explosion and then yeah, fire. Massive flames, they would have been 20m.

No injury as that we know of. This is an industrial street. No evacuations either. You did see that partial collapse in the front and a firefighter running out of the scene in the nick of time. We do run - this is 100m off the Hume Highway. There are a number of traffic diversions being put in place this morning. It will will impact traffic for those on their way to work.Thank you, Jess. A woman has been treated for burns after a fire in her eastern
Melbourne home overnight. It's believed her children may have been playing
with a cigarette lighter at the property in Bayswater -
sparking the blaze. The mother was burnt while trying
to extinguish the flames.

She was treated by paramedics
and taken to the Alfred Hospital. The bedrooms in the home
were damaged but most of the property was saved. Two children and a newborn
have escaped serious injury after a car crash on a motorway
in western Sydney overnight. A taxi and four-wheel drive collided
on the M7, near Kings Langley, just after midnight. The taxidriver
and his female passenger were trapped for a short time. They were taken to hospital
in a stable condition. The road was closed for emergency
services but has reopened.

Police are investigating
a drive-by shooting on the Gold Coast overnight. Shots were fired at
a home at Mermaid Waters just before 1:00 this morning,
damaging the front window and roof. No-one was inside at the time and police are searching
for the offender.

The strongest cold front of the year is making its way north through
New South Wales after blasting the southern states
with a wintry chill. Sunrise correspondent Nathan
Templeton is at Port Melbourne. Nathan, what's the forecast
for today?

Nat, in a

Nat, in a couple of words, very cold. We are expecting snow on the edge of the city here in Melbourne. As you said, it is coming up to the north. We are expecting snow in the Blue Mountains in NSW and even as far north as Queensland in the granite range there. So, look, it's a very cold day coming up. This comes after a very nasty night, epee cross the southern states. When the cold front came,
it came with force. The most powerful low
for almost 12 months, earning it the title
of an Antarctic blast.

Its first victims - drivers
on Melbourne's Nepean Highway. Then it all got dark then there
was this like huge explosions like a truck tyre was exploding. Then all's I saw
was this tree and glass. Fallen trees crushing cars
at Port Phillip Bay. Overnight, the southern states
were smashed with more heavy rain
and wind gusts topping 90km/h. The Weather Bureau issued severe
weather warnings for Victoria and South Australia. Residents in Adelaide were racing
to save what they could. The SES handed out
thousands of sandbags in preparation for wild weather
overnight. Don't know what we're going to do! Bruce Nankervis's driveway
was swallowed by the deluge.

Meteorologists say the Antarctic blast will
now continue to move north with above average snow in Perisher,
Thredbo and Falls Creek. High five! As well as a dusting in the Blue
Mountains, west of Sydney and even as far north
as the Queensland border.

I want to give a special shout out to the SES. They do a wonderful job. But this bloke in particular has gone above and beyond the call of duty. Carrying a woman across the road in Melbourne's CBD. Let's hope they got some sleep because they have got a another big day coming up. A gunman has been shot dead
by police after he took several people hostage
at a cinema in Germany. Seven News Europe correspondent
Cath Turner is following the story. Cath, do police know
the motive behind the attack?

That's still officially being investigated but a

investigated but a suppose person has said they are definitely certain,"That he do not have an Islamist motive" The drama unfolded near Frankfurt in southern Germany. A split second of confusion then they hit the floor, huddling
underneath the desk for cover. Seconds later,
there's a stampede towards the door, as dozens of people
run for their lives. The two employees keep their heads
down for a few moments and then make their move,

No-one else was harmed. Authorities have suggested
the man was mentally unstable rather than a terrorist.

A hand grenade and a police vest was found near the body. Investigators are working out whether they were real or fake. Bill Shorten has been called out
for using scare tactics on the campaign trail. The Labor leader is refusing
to back down on his claims the Coalition will
privatise Medicare, despite not being able to show
any facts backing it up. They are spending $5 million
of taxpayer money to privitise the payment system
of Medicare. That's not privitising Medicare,
though, is it? I can say to the people of Australia that this election and their vote
on July 2 will determine the future
of Medicare. Despite this, Mr Shorten says he can
be trusted to lead the country.

There's just an hour to go before
polling stations close across the UK as people cast their votes to determine if Britain will leave
the European Union.

Seven News Europe bureau chief
Hugh Whitfeld is in London. Hugh, does it look like
there will be a Brexit?

Well, Nat, if you listen to the bookies, possibly not. More than 80% of the money that has been waged between leave and remain is backing the remain camp. Britain is staying in the EU. That was good news for the markets here today. A strong day on the British stock market. And a good news for the pound. It Hall yeahed -- it rallied to its high. All that power in the hands of the voters. (REPORTERS SHOUT) British Prime Minister David Cameron

Much of

Much of the result could depend on persuading the 10% of voters who have been telling pollsters that they are undecided. The weather could be a factor. Wetter than usual here in London today. So wet that there was some minor flooding at polling places. They had to shut and people had to move. It may effect whether people are willing to come out and vote one way or the other, Nat.Thank you very much, Hugh. Sunrise finance brought to you

I think if

I think if you look across the globe overnight, it was risk back on. For a number of months, it has been about risk aversion. Now you've seen the Dow Jones close above 18,000 points for the first time in around a year. We are seeing a move back into the riskier assets. Banking and commercial stocks, the mining sector should see some gains today. The base metal price and copper in particular, for a market where we are linked to the riskier asset classes, you will see the to see the farm making some stronger gains, the thought that Britain will remain a member of the EU is certainly a driver of the markets.

Collingwood has recalled
Travis Cloke for tonight's clash with Fremantle
at the MCG. The match is live and free
on Seven and 7mate. A turbulent week for the Kangaroos ended in a dismal 33-point loss
to the Crows at Adelaide Oval last night. The Crows kicked a club record
28 behinds and this brilliant effort
from Rory Atkins ended up being one of them. after it was ruled to have been
touched by Jack Ziebell. Lindsay Thomas came up with a rare
moment of genius as North crashed
to its third straight defeat. COMMENTATOR: Thomas, he hasn't,
has he? He has! There's no doubt the bye's
coming at a good time for us. It'll give us an opportunity
to re-set. The surging Crows have now won
five matches in a row.

Blues coach Laurie Daley has guaranteed out-going captain
Paul Gallen a spot in the team for State of Origin 3
in Sydney next month. Daley is under increasing pressure to blood new talent
in the dead rubber. Maroons forward Sam Thaiday
won't play again until game 3 after accepting a 2-game ban
for a dangerous throw.

A confident Eddie Jones believes England is primed to clinch a series
clean sweep over the Wallabies in Sydney tomorrow night. Michael Cheika predicted the tourists would adopt
a more attacking game plan at Allianz Stadium. But Jones says winning
is all that matters. We play winning rugby. You know, we want to win games
of rugby. That's what keeps the fans excited. The Aussies have recalled Matt Toomua, Rob Simmons
and Will Skelton. The Hockeyroos have given reigning
Olympic champions the Netherlands a run for their money
at the Champions Trophy. After falling behind 2-0, the Aussies fought back in the final
term through Kathryn Slattery who scored her second goal
in as many matches. The 2-1 loss all but ends
Australia's hopes of reaching the final.

The bigger picture, off to Rio we go. Watch out for the girls.I can't wait for Rio.Not long to go, 43 days to be exact.Sam is at Fairfield High school.They have given me my own personalised shirt. The facilities here are incredible. They have got something The facilities here are incredible.

Here we go, let's check your weather around the country. That was quite good. Gee! Sunrise weather brought to you by Australia's number one probiotic,
Inner Health Plus, kept live and cool protected
in the fridge.

A vigorous cold front is generating
damaging winds and heavy rain to South Australia, Victoria
and Tasmania, with snow lowering
to less than 1000m over the alps. A trough is producing showers over western
and inland Western Australia, the Northern Territory, Queensland
and northern New South Wales.

Brisbane - possible light rain
this morning. Windy and partly cloudy
for Sydney today. Canberra can expect showers
and wind to ease. Showers for
Melbourne.

Hobart -
showers.

Showers and wind easing
for Adelaide. Partly cloudy
for Perth And Darwin -
mostly sunny.

All right,

All right, some of the students are going to have a shot. I am in goals. From very close range, one from one. Two from 2, all right, got to wick a side. 3-3. Yes. Saved one. One more, one more. Let's bring the principal, Mr

Yeah. All right. Well done boys. We will be back in half an hour. Say hello, say hello everybody.Hello. Sam, you are a much better striker than you are a keeper.That's true, actually. They are amazing facilities. I am looking forward to the sun coming up on this school so we can have a good look around. Ahead on Sunrise - we have
a $30,000 phone call to make. The Cash Cow is coming up. Plus, ready, set, go backwards. It looks weird, uncomfortable,
even pointless. But it might just be
the health-kick you're looking for. But next, wild weather. Icy winds and heavy rain
damage homes and cars in Melbourne and Adelaide.

Large parts of the country are
experiencing an icy winter blast, with floods, damaging winds
and snow. Sunrise correspondents
Nathan Templeton and Amanda Bachmann join us now.

Nathan, Melbourne has already copped
a lashing with more to come?

There is rain, hail

There is rain, hail and snow on the way. That comes after very heavy rain smashed the city at around 5 o'clock, last night. The streets of the CBD were flooded. We had damage with frees falling on cars and flood damage. At Patterson Lakes in particular, there was a nasty surprise when the roof collapsed at this rental home. It's understood that a branch fell from a tree, it may have dislodged some tiles. The water got in and caused some damage. The roof caved in. Thankfully nobody was hurt. As for today, it will be a very cold across the state. Many places won't even reach 10 degrees and that snow, quite amazing. They are expecting it to fall down to 500m on the fringe of the city, Mount Dandenong and the Yarra ranges. The Grampians and Mount Macedon also expecting some snow. The snowfields will get up to 20cm, that is handy with the start of school holidays. I am not sure whether Amanda is cold or not. SES crews have been busy overnight in Adelaide.You may say it's a bit cold here. I am at Mount Lofty. They say it is 3 degrees but it is like minus something. It is very windy. SES crews were very busy as we had a we had 20mm, 40mms at some planles. That meant flash flooding, localised flash flooding. I suspect the SES will be busier today when people see what damage has been done overnight. We are told that the worst of the rain is over. However there is a severe weather warning for damaging winds that is in place for the south-eastern part of the state. That includes Adelaide and also here in the hills. Some places we could see winds up to 90 km/h. Mount Lofty, we were hoping for snow. Unfortunately though, we haven't seen any.Find a warm car Amanda. Find a coffee. In just a moment -

Those spectacular pictures. We want to get more on our breaking news. Seven News reporter Jessica Dietrich
is at Greenacre. Jess, there are traffic delays
as a result of the inferno?

That's right, Sam.

That's right, Sam. This runs on to the Hume Highway which attaches to all arteries through Sydney. So traffic diversions in place for those heading into work this morning. This started around 3.30 am. A huge blast followed by flames shooting into the sky. It started in a car wrecking yard and has spread to a blind and awning factory. It is being treated as a fist alarm fire. More than 60 firefighters here at the scene still fighting this blaze.Thank you, Jess. Take your mobile

is guaranteed. Three - we will keep
our borders secure. And four - only the Coalition can form the stable government to deliver for you. I need your local vote to get things done.

It's news time now with Nat. Firefighters are battling
a huge blaze burning at a factory in south-western Sydney
this morning. Seven News reporter Jessica Dietrich
is at Greenacre. Jess, it started in a car
wrecking yard but quickly spread?

It did, Nat, it spread to a blind and awning factory that hasn't been used for quite a while. It started shortly after 3.30. Witnesses heard a huge explosion before looking out to see flamin' shooting into the sky. The fire spread very, very quickly. It has been treated as a fist alarm. There are more than 60 firefighter its here still battling this blaze 3.5 hours later on. Nobody was injured. We spoke to one of the workers on the other side of the street. He said he didn't see anything suspicious.About 2.30 this morning, I turned up, rop of opened the roller doors. Heard an explosion and then yeah, fire. Massive flames. They would have been 20m.Crews do seem to be getting the upper hand on this blaze but it is expected to burn and simmer for another - a number of hours before police can get in there to try to determine exactly how it started. There are traffic diversions set in place. They will impact drivers trying to get into work. We have got a dozen construction workers trying to get access so they can go to work. That will cost them a lot of money.A big flow-on effect. The year's strongest cold front
is moving north after blasting the southern states Sunrise correspondents
Amanda Bachmann and Nathan Templeton join us now. Nathan, emergency crews were
kept busy in Melbourne overnight?

It was a wet and wild night across Victoria, particularly in Melbourne. Torrential rain and strong

strong winds hit the city at around about 5 o'clock, causing flood damage. There was a nasty incident at patter sons lakes when the roof caved in at this rental home. It's believed that a branch fell from a tree, may have dislodged some tiles. The water got in and damaged the ceiling and it caved in. Nobody was hurt. We are expecting a lot of snow around the state today. In some places as low as 500m at Mount Dandenong and the Yarra ranges. The alpine resorts are expecting a big dump around 20cm. As usual, emergency services doing a sensational job. Look at this SES worker. Who said sieve Alary was dead, well done to our imagine emergency services.She looks happy too. Let's go to Amanda in Adelaide. You were battered again overnight and it's pretty cold here.Cold is an understatement. Here at Mount Lofty in the Adelaide Hills, they reckon it's about 3 degrees but with the wind, it goes into negative territory. We did have another cold front. That brought with it damaging wind and heavy rain. We have had in Adelaide about 20mms in Adelaide. 40mms in some places in the hills. The result of that was some localised flash flooding and plenty of trees down. The SES was very busy yesterday. I reckon when the sun comes up this morning, they will have more call outs. We have seen the worse of the rain, however there there is a severe weather warning for damaging winds which is still in place. That is for the south-east area of the state, including Adelaide and the hills. Thank you very much, Amanda and Nathan. More Australians who were injured
in a tour bus crash in Vanuatu have been flown back
to Australia. A plane carrying two victims, a 7- and an 11-year-old arrived
in Queensland this morning.

The 11-year-old was previously
listed as critical but his condition has improved. 11 Australian passengers of a
P&O cruise ship were on the tour bus when it crashed
into another vehicle. Two Vanuatu locals died
in the accident.

Authorities are waiting
for kidnappers to issue demands for a group of miners
kidnapped in Nigeria. Mark Gabbedy, Jack Countentz
and Peter Zoutenbier were among a group of seven people
kidnapped outside Calabar in Southern Nigeria. The Macmahon employees were ambushed
while travelling in a police convoy. One Australian managed to escape. And we are working
with the authorities, the local authorities,
at the highest levels. A Nigerian driver was shot dead
in the attack. We are getting

We are getting Julie Bishop. She will be joining us in a few moments on Sunrise for a life update on that. A gunman has been shot dead
after he took hostages at a cinema in western Germany overnight. The masked man entered the building
holding a rifle, demanding people
to get on the floor.

CCTV reportedly from inside, captured the moment terrified people
started to flee. Officers quickly stormed in
and opened fire on the suspect, killing him. There were no serious injuries
to victims. The motive behind the attack
is still unclear. Polls will close soon across the UK
as people there decide whether or not Britain should leave
the European Union. 46 million people are registered
to have their say. Prime Minister David Cameron even
cast his ballot this morning. The vote is expected to be close. I can't even fathom leaving the EU. I dunno, Britain is part of the EU. It just wouldn't be the same
without it. The decision is expected
to be announced later today. Sunrise finance brought to you

Well, Nat, keep in mind, there is some exit polls in the UK. So despite that,

despite that, I think if you look at the stock markets, it is telling you that the I UK will remain part of the EU. The market sentiment has changed. We are seeing a huge rally across the board. The Dow Jones closing above 18,000 points for the first time in the year. The Australian dollar has got above 76 US cents, the pound and the Euro all strengthening so that risk story is back on. It does seem to suggest that we should see a very strong trading day here in Australia.Thank you for the update. Beretts has sport now. Sunrise sport brought to you

The Kangaroos insist they are still
an AFL premiership threat despite crashing to their third
straight defeat last night. North Melbourne copped a 33-point
hiding from the surging Crows at Adelaide Oval last night.

And the scoreline
would have been much worse if the home side didn't kick
a club-record 28 behinds. The Crows have now won five matches
in a row and are eyeing off a spot
in the top four. There's no easy games in this comp,
I've learnt that very quickly. But that said,
the guys are in a good space. Lindsay Thomas's miraculous goal
from the boundary line was a rare highlight for North. Suncorp Stadium officials
are unlikely to take action against Blues firebrand
David Klemmer for allegedly punching a hole
in a dressing room wall after State of Origin 2. Maroons star Michael Morgan
is in doubt for game 3 after suffering a knee injury. I was able to keep playing on it,
felt a bit weird more than anything. But... yeah,
it's just one of those things. And Blues hooker Robbie Farah will miss Wests Tigers' clash
with the Storm on Sunday through concussion. He was hit by a stray elbow from
his club captain, Aaron Woods, in the final minute of the match. A huge boost for reigning Premier
League champions Leicester City with gun striker Jamie Vardy
agreeing to a new 4-year contract. The English international knocked
back a deal from Arsenal believed to be worth upwards
of $230,000 a week. Vardy is preparing for England's Euro 2016 knockout
clash against Iceland on Tuesday morning.

That will be a beauty. Huge pressure on England. What deal if he says no to $230,000 a week.He will stay with the club. He didn't take the money to leave.How good would it be if Iceland knocked off England.How big would that?There would be rioting in the streets: The Icelandic vodka would be flowing!

A lot of people said it was either Larry Emdur or one of the Bradys.Ak at all these girls standing behind you, they are all so glamorous. Why don't they have to do their time in the ugly teenage years like the rest Refund us did? They are all Instagram models these days. They don't have time to have that hair.

Coming up on Sunrise -
Chinese kids are Weet-Bix kids. The shoppers buying up the breakfast
cereal from supermarkets to send overseas. Plus, childhood chores. Why one mum doesn't expect her son
to help around the house. And wait till you see
the stars who said no to some of the biggest movies
of the century.

Good morning, Brisbane. Possible light morning this morning
and a top of 22. Sydney can expect a windy
and partly cloudy day. 17 degrees. Here's Sam.

First it was baby formula, soon we could see a shortage
of Weet-Bix on our supermarket shelves. The Daily Telegraph reports the breakfast cereal is being
cleared from our stores and sold to Chinese consumers
for as much as $50 a box. It's a hot topic this morning. To discuss it, we're joined by
Justin Smith from 3AW in Melbourne and advertising guru Jane Caro
in Sydney. Justin, given the cuts in some
of our traditional industries,

We talk about baby formula, milk being sent to China. Should we be embracing the demand, they need something to put under their milk in China and Weet-Bix are it. Why are we so stupid in this stuff.If only, you could say this are we so stupid in this stuff.If
only, you could say this about anything. The property market for the stock market, if only we could pick what the next thing is that they are going to embrace. It shows what a massive market. I love this shot. They are not part of the Chinese Secret Service. This is sokt any not class destine behaviour. If only we could pick the next big one, it may be Tim Tams. I don't know what the hell it could be. I wonder what the kids who sit down with the Weet-Bix. It may be like our grandparents who were given a bowel of special fried rice. They may get the same reaction when they see the rectangles turn up in the bowl.It is quite easy what they want to eat and drink. They love our wines. They love our meat. They love our dairy. Now they love our Weet-Bix. Why are we not more savvy when it comes to exporting to China?Well I think it's because of what Justin was saying, just exactly what is going to take off. The problem is, we have seen this happen before, you mentioned wine, we saw this happen with French wine a couple of years ago where the Chinese suddenly decided that this was the thing they all had to have. They sent the price Rocketing up. All the old buyers were left out because the French were capital tieing on the Newmarket. Then they decided later on the next season, they Dante want that any more. The whole thing collapsed. The problem is, it can be faddy. People can ramp up thinking, whacko, we have cracked this great big market. Then they move on. You are left with all this stuff. So, the problem is, it's huge, it's powerful. And at the moment, probably partly our fault, cultural misunderstanding, we can't predict it.Yes, OK. I would love to see the George Egan ad, how many Weet-Bix can you slam? Should kids be forced to do chores. One blogger said she wanted to let her son be a kid. Should children be given chores?Yes, of course, children should be given chores. But the thing to remember, getting kids to do their chores is one of the hardest cars of parenting. It is very difficult to make them do it. That's why an awful lot of parents, I just can't bear the fight. I think this woman has come up with a wonderful post racialisation.Can we go back to this boy when he is married and see what kind of husband he is if he can't do chores as a killed.Don't let your children read this blog. This woman is the enemy. Don't let your kids see that blog. That's it. Delete it immediately.

Especially make your sons do chores. They should do extra chores.The second they start breathing. That's when you start. We have just our own IT support, they are the first generation of kids to be of use to their parents because they can navigate the internet.Here is Mike. I hope you are listening at home, Addison, help your mum, please. Straight ahead this morning -

Hello again, and welcome to Friday. Let's get straight to our
breaking news - here's Nat. Dozens of firefighters
are battling a huge blaze burning through a factory
in south-western Sydney. Seven News reporter Jessica Dietrich
is at Greenacre. ?Jess, you've got a much closer look
at the damage?

Yeah, I'm going to take you, look at this. This is a massive pile of rubble

rubble that has been left. This is one of three buildings that have been destroyed by this fire. It's a 100 by 150 metre site. You've got firefighters fighting from the cherry Pickers. We have had more than 80 firefighters and 20 fire trucks here this morning. It started surely after 3.30. People heard a huge explosion. It started in a car wrecking yard which is behind these factories. And then it spread very quickly. There were flames shoot being up to 20m into the sky. -- shooting up into the sky. Firefighters had to run to escape a wall collapsing. We have just had an update from the deputy fire commissioner. He said that they have managed to contain that blaze now but it has been a very dangerous operation.There was a high fuel load and we have had approximately 20 fire engines and 80 firefighters here in that time to do a fantastic job. Firefighters have gone internally to the two adjoining buildings to prevent the fire spreading there. They have done a great job in saving those additional buildings.It is a very busy industrial street. It is lucky that nobody was injured. We have got construction workers that are trying to access their vehicles so they can go to work. We have got a number of traffic diversions on the Hume Highway around Greenacre so people should try to avoid this area. Police are waiting for them to do a bit of a clean up before they can get in and try and determine how this started. Thank you very much, Jess. We will cross back to you soon with an update. A woman has been treated for burns after a fire in her eastern
Melbourne home overnight. It's believed her children may have been playing
with a cigarette lighter at the property in Bayswater -
sparking the blaze. The mother was burnt while trying
to extinguish the flames.

She was treated by paramedics
and taken to the Alfred Hospital. The bedrooms in the home
were damaged but most of the property was saved. The strongest cold front of the year is making its way north
through New South Wales, after blasting the southern states
with heavy rain and strong winds. Sunrise correspondent Nathan
Templeton is at Port Melbourne. Nathan, where are the fronts
heading today?

Nat, the icy weather is heading towards

towards new swalts. The Blue Mountains and even parts of Queensland could get some snow today. Still very kould here in Melbourne. -- NSW. Very cold in Melbourne after Victoria and South Australia were lashed overnight. When the cold front came,
it came with force. The most powerful low
for almost 12 months, earning it the title
of an Antarctic blast. The first affected were drivers
on Melbourne's Nepean Highway. Then it all got dark then there
was this huge explosions like a truck tyre was exploding. Then all's I saw
was this tree and glass. Fallen trees crushed cars
on the shores of Port Phillip Bay.

Overnight, the southern states
were smashed with more heavy rain
and wind gusts topping 90km/h. The bureau issued
severe weather warnings

for Victoria and South Australia. Heavy rain flooded streets and
brought ceilings down in Melbourne. We were coming down the stairs
at one point and I felt a bit of water
drop on my shoulder. So I looked up and sure enough,
the roof's about to cave in. I heard it coming down so I dived. Residents in Adelaide were
also racing to save what they could. The SES handed out
thousands of sandbags in preparation for the downpour. Don't know what we're gonna do! It was mayhem for motorists too - the warning for drivers -
don't take any unnecessary risks. So

So emergency services have been busy. We captain get enough of this bloke. Look at this SES worker carrying a woman across a flooded street in the CBD. They have do a great job and they have another busy day today. Bill Shorten has been called out for using scare tactics
on the campaign trail and is refusing to back down
on his claims the Coalition will privatise
Medicare.

Seven News reporter Max Futcher
is in Canberra. Max, despite this, he still says
voters can trust him.

He does, Nat. Of course, this week has been dominated by

has been dominated by those Labor claims that the coalition plans to privatise Medicare. The prime minister has repeatedly denied this and this week we saw the Australian medical association also say there is no indication that this would happen. Even so, Labor has persisted with this attack on the coalition. Last night, Bill Shorten was accused of building false fears in the community.They are spending $5 million to privatise the payment system of Medicare.That's not privatising Medicare.I can say to the people of Australia, that this election and their vote on 2 July will determine the future of Medicare. TillAlready, 750,000 Australians have made up their mind with a record number casting prepolling votes. That's probably because this election falls right in the middle of school holidays for many parts of the country. Malcolm Turnbull officially launches his campaign in Sydney on Sunday. The Nigerian navy is working to recover a group of mine workers,
including three Australians, kidnapped in Nigeria. Mark Gabbedy, Jack Counrnz
and Peter Zoutenbier were among a group of seven
people kidnapped outside Calabar in Southern Nigeria.

The Macmahon employees were ambushed
while travelling in a police convoy. One Ausralian managed to escape. And we are working
with the authorities, the local authorities,
at the highest levels. At this stage there are no reports
of any demands being made by the kidnappers. A gunman has been killed by police after a tense hostage situation
at a cinema in Germany. Seven News Europe correspondent
Cath Turner is following the story.

What happened?Nat, around 2.30 local time, this gunman walked

local time, this gunman walked into a cinema complex opened fire and took a number of hostages. The drama unfold ld around 2.30, in the small town of Veirheim. A split second of confusion then they hit the floor, huddling
underneath the desk for cover. Seconds later,
there's a stampede towards the door, as dozens of people
run for their lives. The two employees keep their heads
down for a few moments and then make their move,
bolting for the exit. Outside, police from
a special response unit cordoned off the area
around the building.

They received an emergency call saying there was an armed man
wearing a mask inside the cinema complex. The caller said four shots
had been fired. With the Orlando shooting
still fresh in everyone's minds, authorities feared a hostage
situation, with children inside. Initial reports suggested up
to 50 people had been wounded. It was later confirmed
they suffered minor injuries when police used tear gas
during the operation. Officers found the gunman inside
with a number of hostages. He was shot dead.
No-one else was harmed. Authorities have suggested
the man was mentally unstable rather than a terrorist.

An hand grenade and a explosives vest was found next to the man's Doddy. Police are trying to work out if they were real or fake. Polling stations across the UK
have just closed and the first votes
are being counted to determine if Britain will leave
the European Union. Seven News Europe bureau chief
Hugh Whitfeld is in London. Hugh, what's expected
to be the outcome?

We have just heard the ten Bocks from Big Ben marking the end of voting in this historic poll right across the UK. All the or most of the betting money is remain winning that Britain will stay in the EU. We have just seen one of the key Brexiters, Boris Johnson, the former Mayor of London, the Tori MP voting here his home in north London, leaving it right until the last minute, just 20 minutes before the polls closed. And right up and down the country, 45 million people registered to vote with so much at stake.

(REPORTERS SHOUT) British Prime Minister David Cameron
up early - eager to cast his vote
for the European referendum. But it's not up to just him
to decide if there will be a Brexit. 46 million people are registered
to have their say. I can't even fathom leaving the EU. I dunno, Britain is part of the EU. It just wouldn't be the same
without it. I think that the wisdom
of the British people will filter through this process and there'll be a way
to get through this. The question - "should the United Kingdom remain
a member of the European Union "or leave?" Today's vote is a bit different
from other elections. I think the big difference
is that every vote counts. There are no safe seats
there are no marginal seats, there's no special areas where
politicians put their resources for swing voters. Every single vote is equal
no matter where you live. The polls have now closed
and the counting has begun. There are 382 local counts
across the country which will feed
into regional centres. The official result is expected
to be announced later today.

Now that those polls have closed, the counting can begin at counting centres right across the UK, including Gibraltar. Those figures from councils will be collated and sent to Manchester town hall where the official result will be announced, probably in about 6-8 hours time.Aussies could vote. Any resident of the UK who is from a Commonwealth country, could vote if you happen to be living there. So it should be interesting. Thank you very much, we will cross back to you later, Hugh. Legendary rock band Led Zeppelin
have been cleared of plagiarism after being accused of stealing
this classic riff. (STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN RIFF PLAYS)

They were accused of copying a song
by band Taurus, which was released
four years earlier. A jury made
the decision this morning, saying the two songs are not
intrinsically similar, closing the case once and for all.

Of course it should be closed. It was the family of the guy who wrote the other song who died 20 years ago.Trying to make a last minute grab. Let us never speak of it again.It's Led Zepplins and that's it. Collingwood has recalled
Travis Cloke for tonight's clash with Fremantle
at the MCG. The match is live and free
on Seven and 7mate. A turbulent week for the Kangaroos ended in a dismal 33-point loss
to the Crows at Adelaide Oval last night. The Crows kicked a club record
28 behinds and this brilliant effort from Rory
Atkins ended up being one of them

after it was ruled to have been
touched by Jack Ziebell. Lindsay Thomas came up
with a rare moment of genius as North crashed
to its third straight defeat. COMMENTATOR: Thomas, he hasn't,
has he? He has! There's no doubt the bye's
coming at a good time for us. It'll give us an opportunity
to re-set. The surging Crows have now won
five matches in a row.

Blues coach Laurie Daley has guaranteed out-going captain
Paul Gallen a spot in the team for State of Origin 3 in Sydney
next month. Daley is under increasing pressure
to blood new talent in the dead rubber. Maroons forward Sam Thaiday
won't play again until game 3 after accepting a 2-game ban
for a dangerous throw. A confident Eddie Jones believes England is primed to clinch a series
clean sweep over the Wallabies in Sydney tomorrow night. Michael Cheika predicted the tourists would adopt
a more attacking game plan at Allianz Stadium. But Jones says winning
is all that matters. We play winning rugby. You know, we want to win games
of rugby. That's what keeps the fans excited. The Aussies have recalled Matt Toomua, Rob Simmons
and Will Skelton.

All eyes are on Aussie
basketballing prodigy Ben Simmons in the countdown to this morning's
NBA draft. The 19-year-old is widely expected
to be the number one pick. That means he'll join up with
former Boomers coach Brett Brown at the Philadelphia 76ers. Brown also coached Ben's dad,
Dave Simmons, in the NBL. Simmons has opted not to represent
Australia at the Rio Olympics but says he's keen to play
for the Boomers in future.

Another great Aussie game to watch.athon Maker. He came here as a 5-year-old, his family came to this country. He is now in the NBA draft. They did it in a different way. They did it under the radar. He is expected to be drafted in the top ten.He is a giant, 7 foot 10. OK. Weather time. Sam Mac is at Fairfield High school this morning. An amazing school. Yeah, it's enormous, over 1,000 students.

on the massive fire which is causing traffic problems
at Greenacre in Sydney's west. Seven News reporter Jessica Dietrich
is at the scene. This has been a big battle
for fire crews?

That's right,

That's right, Mike. It's actually taken four hours to contain that fire. I've got fire rescue Deputy Commissioner Jim Hamilton with me. How big are we talking? How big is this site?This site is extensive. We have gone from one city block. The fire started in the other street and it's about 100m to 150m across this area plus the street and it's about 100m to 150m
across this area plus the three buildings here. So we have had an extensive firefight from buildings here. So we have had an
extensive firefight from 3 o'clock this morning The first crews were here, the one building was fully ainvolved in arrival. That has spread from the rear of that building to the rear of the building behind us.How dangerous was this? We saw those amazing pictures of the wall collapsing? Every fire is dangerous. This one particularly because of access problems. There was only access from the front and the rear. We couldn't get into the middle of the building. There was the problem with the adjoining buildings. We were defensive outside, on the two big buildings and then internal firefighting on the internal building.We have also got the cherry Pickers that are still putting out some spot fires. There are traffic delays on the Hume Highway because of this incident. Hopefully that will clear a little later today, guys.Thank you, Jess. Here is Sam. An Antarctic blast
is bringing freezing conditions to southern and eastern Australia. The cold snap is packing
damaging winds, rain and snow. Adelaide has been lashed overnight. Torrential rain has already been
dumped on Melbourne with more on the way. A heavy dumping of snow
has been welcomed at ski resorts in New South Wales.

Seven News meteorologist Tony Auden
in in the Weather Centre. Tony, what's triggered this
first real cold snap for the year, and the extensive dumping of snow, even to places that don't usually
get it?

Good morning, it's all due to a cold front.

cold front. The strongest of the year so far. After slamming into South Australia, Victoria and Tasmania late yesterday, it is now sitting over southern NSW and should sweep north during the day. It is said to bring a mix of cold winds and snow. We are looking at the winds and snow. We are looking at
the Heffest falls of the year Around over the alps. That's on top of some steady falls already this week with a light dusting reaching the NSW northern tablelands. It should stop short of the NSW northern tablelands. It
should stop short of Queensland this time. We are looking at dry conditions on the coast. Sydney is looking at a wind chill of around 10 degrees today so it will feel like temperatures in the single figures. South-East Queensland won't except the chill, gusty winds expected later today. It will be worth rugging up. I know I will have a few extra layers handy. Thank you, tony. We still don't know the fate of three Australians kidnapped
in Nigeria. Mark Gabbedy, Jack Couranz
and Peter Zoutenbier are among seven men
taken by gunmen at Calabar, in the country's south-east
while travelling to work. The men are employees of Perth-based
mining company Macmahon Holdings. Kidnapping for ransom is a long
running problem in Nigeria.

Foreign Minister Julie Bishop
joins me. Good morning, Minister. What is the latest on the situation?

Good morning, Mike. We are deeply

concerned about this issue and we are working very closely concerned about this issue and we
are working very closely with the Nigerian government Both Natalie. 7 employees of Mcmahon holdings have been taken. One Australian was able to escape capture but tragically one person, a Nigerian was killed. We have details but I am not going into too much at this stage because that would be counterproductive. There has been no claim made yet but our concern is of course, the well being, the safety of these people and we are working as hard as we can to free them. But we are treating it very seriously as is the Nigerian government.OK, minister, you mentioned it is hard to comment on situations like. We understand. What is the difficulty in negotiations with this sort of militia I guess for want of a better word?Well, Sam, the Australian Government has a long standing bipartisan policy of not paying ransoms on demand from kidnappers. That's obviously because it would increase the security issues for Australians travellingover seas of the these negotiations can be very delicate and very sensitive. The less I say about it publicly, probably the more productive it will be for them. But we are working closely with the families, with Mcmahon holdings to keep them informed of any progress that we can make. Of course I would inform the Australian people if there was information relevant for the public. These negotiations can be sensitive. We are not even at this stage. We are working closely with local authorities but it's always been made clear at the national level that the Australian Government is treating this very seriously.Worrying period for the family, obviously. Thank you very much Foreign Minister, Julie We're finally on the home stretch
of the election campaign. much Foreign Minister, Julie
Bishop.

It's been a long seven weeks and Malcolm Turnbull and Bill
Shorten are level-pegging. Minor parties are proving popular. The Greens say that's because the major parties
have missed the mark with voters. there's been a lack of courage,
imagination and a lack of vision. There's been a lack of courage,
a lack of imagination and a lack of vision. We've seen that steady staple
of scare campaigns that have become a feature
of modern politics.

The latest campaigning
has seen more talk on jobs with Bill Shorten in Adelaide
and Malcolm Turnbull in Geelong. For a Spin Free perspective, let's check in with former Victorian
premier Jeff Kennett in Melbourne and in Sydney, former Labor leader
Mark Latham. Good morning, gents. Jeff, is Richard Di Natalie right? Have the major parties failed
to address the right issues?

Look, everyone is going to have an opinion, Mike. The reality is, he can have

can have a swipe at anyone he likes regardless of the result of the election. He will never have any responsibility. So, when you don't have responsibility, you can say what you like. Sadly, he might influence the outcome but he will never be prime minister. They will never be a major party.OK, Mark, what do you think hasn't been addressed that should have? I feel for politicians a bit. It must be hard to get clear air to talk about the stuff that voters will consider boarding that perhaps -- boring that they need to.You are such a kind and naturally considerate person. Don't feel story for them. They stick narrowly to their script. They stick to the issues where their pollster has told them this is what you need to Hammer in their daily media conference. Don't feel sorry for them. The three issues, that have gone missing, not enough talk about the problem of global warming, not enough concern about budget repair. Let's get the budget back into surplus and protect Australia from economic international turmoil. No talk about our ridiculously high levels of immigration. We have one arm of government saying we need to spend a lot of money on structure, and a the other arm needs the structure. Let's look at the Daily Telegraph cover. It's called Bill Shorten Billnocchio. He has pinned his claims. He was pressed again on the ABC on his Medicare privatisation claims. Have a listen to this. Can you put your hand on your heart and look Australians in the eye and say that the coalition has a policy to look Australians in the eye and say
that the coalition has a policy to privatise Medicare?I can say to the people of Australia, and their vote on July 2, will determine the people of Australia, and their
vote on July 2, will determine the the people of Australia, and their
vote on July 2, will determine the future of Medicare.I watched that last night. I was so annoyed. I had to turn it off. Is Bill Shorten backpedalling name from his claims that Medicare will be privatised. You can't have to be a lunatic to buy an entity that lose he $11 million a year. They are all switching over to the negatives. If you are switching off the 7.30, you must be switching off all the negative ads on TV. So how about we all just watch the footy on the weekend?Could I just say, Sam, in answer to your question, the one thing I find that's missing in this campaign and unfortunately, it has been the case in many federal campaigns, there is no aGeneral today. Where do you think either side of politics wants to take Australia by 2050, there is no Light on the Hill. There is no narrative that is trying to take us A Place of that worries me treasurerly. We look at individual policies, yes, no -- presently. There is no agenda. There is no goal for the country as a hole. I find that very disappointing. I've got to say when I heard you say, the pollies are sticking to their agenda, they would never have said that about you, mate. You never stuck to your.At least you stood for something and tried to implement it. So how about we both make a comeback, Jeffrey.Not for this election.You've only got 8 days. You two have - you have moved very much away from your original platforms perhaps when you younger gentleman. Maybe you could start a party together.That would be interesting. We would have trouble deciding who was going to be the leader.That's right.Have a good weekend, you two. Cheers, all the best.Bye bye.I do love those two, they are trouble makers! Still to come this Sunrise... High-rise hell.

It's news time now with Nat. Firefighters have managed
to contain a huge blaze burning through a factory
in Sydney's south-west. Seven News reporter Jessica Dietrich
is at Greenacre. Jess, you've just had another update
from fire crews what did they say?

That's right, Nat, we have just spoken to the deputy fire commissioner. He says

commissioner. He says they have managed to contain this blaze now. It's a massive site. 100 by 150m. It started around 3am this morning. It was a fist alarm fire, it began in a car wrecking yard. There would have been a lot of spare parts and gas cylinders. There was huge blast and that has turned into a massive fire. It spread to three buildings on this street. You can see the damage it last done to this one in particular which is a waterproofing business. We have got the owner here. He is completely devastated by what has happened. The deputy fire commissioner said it was a very dangerous operation for his workers. TiledThere was a high fuel load and we have had approximately 20 fire engines here in that time to do a fantastic job. Firefighters have gone internally to the two adjoining buildings to prevent the fire spread there. They have done a great job.It's just lucky that nobody was injured. There were no evacuations at that time of the morning but it's a very busy industrial street. We have got dozens of workers trying to get in here, construction workers to access their vehicles so they can go to work. We have got traffic diversions so anyone travelling in this area should be wary to take another route.We are looking at life chopper shots from the chopper. How widespread the damage. So talk us through - they think it started in the car wrecking yard, do they? Do they know how? started in the car wrecking yard,
do they? Do they know how?. They are They don't exactly how. There was a lot are They don't exactly how. There
was a lot of fuel. A lot of gas cylinders. That is where the blast started. You can see from the chopper pictures how large that site is. How much damage it has done to the buildings on the treat. It was actually spreading to other buildings. Crews managed to get in there and contain the blaze to just the three on this road. A huge furnace but police have taped this off as a crime scene. They are waiting until this is completely put out so they can get in here and help fire investigators to work out how it started. The witnesses that we spoke to that heard to the blast and reported it to police say they didn't see anything suspicious, they didn't see anyone running from the scene or anything like. We have to wait and see a little bit later to see what the police have to say, Nat.A big story there in Greenacre, thank you, Jess. The year's strongest cold front
is moving north after blasting the southern states with hail, rain,
strong winds and flooding. Sunrise correspondents
Nathan Templeton and Amanda Bachmann join us now. Nathan, its already caused
a lot of damage in Melbourne?

It has, Nat, a very busy night for emergency services. We had wind gusts of up to 100km/h.

gusts of up to 100km/h. There was a very sudden torrential downpour at about 5 o'clock, last night which caused flash flooding across the city. Outright at patter sons lakes in Melbourne's south-east, there were no injures which water damaged cause add ceiling to cave in. As for today, we are bracing for our coldest day of the year so far in Melbourne. Snowfall expected as low as 500m in the Dandenongs and the Yarra ranges. No injury, hero goes hero of the night goes to this man who carried a damsel in distress a across a city street in the CBC. Hopefully we can continue on with no further injuries.A lot of rain fell in Adelaide overnight and it's freezing.I am at Mount Lofty where the temperature gauge says it's about 3 degrees. With the wind, it is bit early cold and in negative territory. We have been lashed by heavy wind and strong rain which has kept SES crewed busy with plenty of trees down and flooding. The good news is the worst is over. The rain has certainly passed us, there is no longer a damaging wind warning for Adelaide. There is still however, for the South eastern part of the state as that front moves on, so hopefully today will be a better day although as you point out, still pretty chilly. 3 degrees is cold enough for me, thank you Amanda and thank you, Nathan. Counting of votes has now begun
in the UK to determine whether or not Britain
should leave the European Union. 46 million people are registered
to have their say with polls closing a short time ago. Prime Minister David Cameron
even cast his ballot this morning. The vote is expected to be close. The official result is expected
to be announced later today. Police have shot and killed a man
who opened fire inside a cinema in south-western Germany.

Security vision shows the moment
of confusion as the gunman entered the building before people began fleeing
for their lives. Police surrounded the building
after hearing reports an armed man wearing a mask
was inside the cinema complex. Witnesses say four shots
had been fired. Police are investigating
the gunman's motive. No-one was hurt. Extra security has been deployed
at cinemas across the city. The Nigerian navy is working to
recover a group of mine workers, including three Australians,
kidnapped in Nigeria. Mark Gabbedy, Jack Couranz
and Peter Zoutenbier were among a group of seven people
kidnapped while travelling in a police convoy. Foreign Minister Julie Bishop says the government's main priority
is the safety of the hostages. These negotiations can be sensitive
but we're not even at that stage. But it's also been made clear
at the national level that the Australian government
is treating this very seriously. At this stage,

We are not really in a position to judge.What are you talking about, Beretts?

Beretts? Speak for yourself, Beretts! The Kangaroos insist they are still
an AFL premiership threat despite crashing
to their third straight defeat. North Melbourne copped a 33-point
hiding from the surging Crows at Adelaide Oval last night. And the scoreline would have been
much worse if the home side didn't kick
a club-record 28 behinds. The Crows have now won five matches
in a row and are eyeing off a spot
in the top four.

There's no easy games in this comp,
I've learnt that very quickly. But that said,
the guys are in a good space. Lindsay Thomas's miraculous goal
from the boundary line was a rare highlight for North.

Suncorp Stadium officials

ode to the working mum, coming up. Now to the final instalment
of our special entertainment series. All week Sunrise has been exposing
the secrets behind your favourite movies.

I am sad that this is almost over. These are the facts
you never knew - the scandals, the dramas
and the rumours. This morning, we wrap with
the biggest films of the noughties.

CROWD: Maximus! Maximus! Maximus! It's the movie that made
Russell Crowe a Hollywood star and an Oscar winner. But there's a long-standing rumour that Mel Gibson turned down
the lead role in Gladiator. Director Ridley Scott denies it
and says Crowe was his first choice. Only 32 pages of the script
were complete when filming began, which angered the Aussie actor. According to a co-writer, Crowe referred to the dialogue
as 'garbage' and wasn't a fan
of this now-famous line. Father to a murdered son. Husband to a murdered wife. And I will have my vengeance... ..in this life or the next. Actor Oliver Reed -
who played Proximo - died from a heart attack
in the middle of filming so CGI was used
to work around his passing. You were a gladiator? Yes, I was. His face was digitally scanned
onto the body of an extra.

Looks like you. This is your avatar. (DRAMATIC MUSIC) Just relax and let your mind
go blank.

Shouldn't be hard for you. Matt Damon and Jake Gyllenhaal
were the studio's first choice to play Jake Sully in Avatar but James Cameron decided to cast
an unknown Sam Worthington in the lead role. At the time of his audition,
Worthington was living in his car. You should not be here.

Go back. The film took so long to make, Cameron agreed to forfeit his
director's fee if the movie bombed. It didn't, becoming
only the second movie in history to cross the $1 billion mark.

(FAST-PACED MUSIC)

He saved my life twice
and I've never even seen his face. The highest grossing movie of 2002
was Spider-Man but the studio was reluctant
to cast Tobey Maguire - they wanted Leonardo DiCaprio
or Freddie Prinze Jr instead. Kate Hudson and Tara Reid
were considered for the role
of love interest Mary Jane Watson but the part went to Kirsten Dunst.

(GASPS) You are...amazing. (DRAMATIC MUSIC) I'm Captain Jack Sparrow. Not sure I deserved that. Robert De Niro
was originally offered the role of Captain Jack Sparrow
in Pirates Of The Caribbean but turned it down because he
thought the movie would be a flop. Johnny Depp won the role
and an Oscar nomination.

I may have deserved that. You wouldn't realise he wore contact
lenses that acted as sunglasses so he wouldn't have to squint
in the sun. Keira Knightley was only 17 years
old when the movie was made. Because she was a minor, her mother had to accompany
her on set at all times.

You like pain? Try wearing a corset. (HARRY POTTER THEME MUSIC) You're a wizard, Harry.
I'm a what? Steven Spielberg was meant to direct
the first Harry Potter movie and he wanted Haley Joel Osment
from The Sixth Sense to play the boy wizard. But Spielberg had a falling out
with J.K. Rowling over creative differences so Chris Columbus came in
and Daniel Radcliffe scored the role after 300 kids tested for Harry. HERMIONE: I'm going to bed before either of you come up
with another clever idea to get us killed. Or worse - expelled! She needs to sort out
her priorities! Rosie O'Donnell and Robin Williams were so desperate to star
in the film they asked for a role without pay -
but didn't make the cut. And Radcliffe went through 160 pairs
of Harry's iconic glasses over the course of the eight movies.

Best shag you've ever had? Britney Spears. No, only kidding. (CHUCKLES) She was rubbish. There are nine plot lines in
the romantic comedy Love Actually but originally there were 14. One involved an African couple supporting each other
during a famine and another was about
a school headmistress and her lesbian partner. # Jump for my love # Jump in

# And feel my touch. # Hugh Grant hated the scene where his character, the British
Prime Minister, had to dance. He tried to have it cut because he
wanted the PM to be more grounded. And Emma Thompson's
famous crying scene after her character discovers
her husband has been unfaithful was filmed 12 times in a row. # I've looked at love # From both sides now. #

You can watch that -- if you can watch that scene without crying.12 times.That shows how good an actress she is. It makes me cry now.You have done a great job on those. Can you do more over the weekend.Over the weekend, no way, man.You've got nothing to do.What I will do is lobby the producers to do more. I think they are quite interesting.They are.I won't do anything but I will lobby the producers to do something. They are enjoyable. It's the question
that eludes most men - what do women 'really' want? Well, some funny mummies have

He is over there watching me.Australian women, girls, do you think this is the Universal thing that men doing housework are sexy?Yeah, definitely. Not just about housework and making choices and decisions and being in the trenches together, that's what is really hot. We made this video in partner with channel Australia that which is a an amazing channel. With them, it was a celebration of all the different identities that women have all over the world, we have careers as well as being mums, we also have - if you work at home, you might have a small business or just, you know, things that you love, like reading Shakespeare in the bath and yoga.Yeah.I think that this is a trick. That you guys are saying that housework is sexy for men and hopefully we fall for it, anyway. Are you surprised by the reaction to your clip?I - You know, we love it, we are just really excited.I think the Thring about it, when you create something, we are speaking from the heart. It comes from a place of truret. As long as -- truth, as long as it's coming from a proper place.It is a very catchy song.We think the women are so powerful and sexy. We wanted to put a tryst on it for our situation.As you can see on our channel, just boobs where we have all of our sketches. Just boobs together. One word. Everything comes to - every one of our sketches is something that all four of us related to, yes we have to make a sketch about that, we know there is a Universal there. We hope that everybody relates to. It's a name we won't forget. There is a tune I have trouble getting out of my head. Hopefully the message will sisk into Beretts.I am sure Australian woman thank you. When it comes
to finding the perfect home we're all looking for peace
and quiet, a clean environment and a friendly face next door. Turns out, that might be too much
to ask in an apartment building. With so many people packed in, even the smallest issue
can become a big problem.

Sunrise reporter Shaun White
knows the pain, first-hand.

It's pretty tricky territory. In the last few years, we

the last few years, we have seen a massive 36% growth in apartment across Australia. But one likes a noisy neighbour and that can be just the tip
of the iceberg. Luckily, with units
the most affordable housing option, there are ways
to ensure we all get along.

# Morning's here # The morning's here. # Hey! (AUDIENCE LAUGH) Do you have to do that?
It's Saturday! Oh, c'mon! Morning's here! Noisy neighbours -
they're the pits. Far from shacking up with 'Friends',

neighbourly disputes
can be a real mood killer. Mmm. Hello, Mr Peabody. (TELEVISION TURNS ON) (COMMOTION ON TV) WOMAN: (ON TV) I found myself
in the mirror and it was my mother's tush! (HAWAII FIVE-0 THEME MUSIC)

But it's not just the noise,
you know what I mean - little irritations can drive you
nuts living in a high rise. Noise is probably the main one. But things like rubbish. So people leaving rubbish
in the hallways can be a problem. The lifts, using the lifts
can be tricky at times. Turns out,
they're fairly common problems. My...immediate next door neighbour likes to play heavy metal music
at about...5,000 watts. That's a lot of power, isn't it? My noisy neighbour has a dog
and it's about this big and it's really cute
and we really like it, but it has the propensity to wake up
at about 2am. And um...

..that's not cool,
Leila Chocolate Dog! Not cool! My noisy neighbours snore so loudly that I can hear it from the floor
above me. Unfortunately many of us
have little choice. Fast-growing cities and sky-high
rents have seen unit numbers boom. Melbourne adds around
1,000 apartments per annum and it has been doing so
over the past 25 years. Wow.
So that's a lot of apartments. But the pipeline's looking greater. So we're expecting
to see around 20,000 apartments come out of the ground
in the next five years. So just what can you do if you're living beside a
door-slammer or recycling-rebel? I'm, ah, asking for a friend... I'm just gonna be really honest,
I've got noisy neighbours. (LAUGHS) Do you?
I haven't met them yet. Is a letter better
or do I just knock on the door? I think it's up to you! It depends how comfortable
you are in confrontation and what they look like, as well. Make sure if we're too noisy,
call me first don't call the cops. BOTH: OK I'll go tell them to sssh. (LOUD MUSIC PLAYS) Are you ready for a show?! If all else fails -
you could try Strata Management. After all, it's their job
to keep the place tidy and keep the peace.

Yeah, I haven't written a letter or knocked on the door, they will know now because I've put it out there, haven't I? Guys, Sydney and Melbourne, you would expect boom. It's Perth and Brisbane we have seen huge growth in apartments, I think you would be great to live next door too but Sammy, I don't know. Hello. I probably have the quietest parties of all of us. Really. Stainless steel think parties.All right, here is Eddy. As they say,
honesty is the best policy. Irene Klaasse understands that
more than most. They call her the 'Taxi Fairy'. If you lose something in a Sydney
cab, she will track you down. (GENTLE PIANO MUSIC)

Irene Klaasse's office
looks more like a department store. MAC lipstick. Makeup. Wallets. Cameras and glasses. Sunnies. But these items aren't for sale.
They're lost. A broken slinky. (LAUGHS) If you work on HMAS Watson,
if you're serving on HMAS Watson, here is your hat. Irene works
in the lost property department of Sydney's largest taxi company. How does it work?
How does all this stuff end up here? Oh, busy lives. Great drivers who return it. and we do our best to reunite. After 16 years, Irene has reunited thousands of
missing objects with their owners. And she's seen it all. We've had a suitcase,
a lady's of the night suitcase. Ohhh.
Yeah. That was a bit embarrassing,
lots of different things. Educational, it was, for me. A wishing well once. From a wedding?
From a wedding. Yep. So hundreds of...
Thousands of dollars. Oh! The mum was in charge of it.
She left it in the boot of the taxi. Even celebrities
leave their belongings behind.

I can't name them all...

Can't name them all
but you can name one. Who is it? Channel 7, Dancing With The Stars,
it's... (WHISPERS) I forgot his name! (CREW LAUGHS) It's Todd McKenney! You've even got a photo!
We do. It was years ago.
What did Todd lose? He lost his Nokia. Lost his Nokia?!
That is awhile ago then. Guy Sebastian's wife, Jules,
lost her camera. She sent you a thank you card. She did. She actually sent us
a lovely arrangement of flowers. Oh! And Damian Leith lost his guitar. He did. He did. Many years ago.

And you reunited him and
then you got to go to his concert. I did. It was great. Justine, what have they found? My laptop. It's my Mother's Day
present, only three weeks old. So I've got it back, thank God. Did you think it would be found?
I hoped. I have heard the statistics
are pretty good at the moment. My husband didn't
but I was optimistic. A common taxi tale
for many passengers. A very fun night, Friday night.
(LAUGHS) But the goods were put in the boot and we forgot about it
as we left the taxi. And then remembered the next morning
when they weren't at home that they were still in the boot. Working her magic, Irene
uses receipts, bookings and the good old White Pages
to track people down. We'll send them a letter
if we have their wallet. We'll go through the cameras. People must be so relieved. They are. Everybody loves me. And so thankful. Yes. Yes. We get flowers and chocolates
and wine. Marriage proposals,
we've had it all! A wall of thank yous
from grateful strangers. This is my little wall of fame. You must get tears, smiles,
screaming, all sorts. Every emotion. Yeah, it's great. Rewards of the job. After three months,
if the items aren't collected, they're given to charity. A vacuum cleaner and a step ladder. Yes. Yes. That came in yesterday. We haven't got an owner
for those as yet. This is a breathing machine. Is this person still breathing? He is! He is on a cruise
at the moment. He's on his way to Dubai and we have had a letter
through Princess Cruises and they're going to organise
a courier. So this will be picked up shortly and it will be on its way
to the next port - Dubai. How did they get out of the cab,
Irene? I ask myself the same thing. (LAUGHS) Just got in the cab to go home
and you won't believe what happened. Ativ?
Yes.

You found something in your cab. Yes, I found $5,000. I pick up a gentleman from
international airport to the city. $515.

So I found in the back seat,
the jacket envelope, they have $3,500 and $1,500
in the... In the wallet.
And you returned it! Yeah, I returned it.

Someone told me, "Go for a holiday,
why you give it to him back?" I said, "No, no." Then when I give it to him back
he gives to me $200 gift. Ativ, we could talk all day
but I gotta get back to work. No problem.
Shall we? Martin Place, please. See you, Irene!

(TYRES SCREECH) That's a pretty honest cabby there. I'm not sure if you found tens of
thousands of dollars in your cab, you'd give it back. Have to think about that one. Guys, we have met so many wonderful
people over the last six months through Story of My Life so make sure you keep the ideas
coming - dob someone in that you know
via the Sunrise Facebook page. Thanks, Eddy.

Still ahead on Sunrise -
a big Cash Cow jackpot. She has $40,000 to give away.

It's news time now with Nat. Firefighters have managed
to contain a huge blaze burning through a number
of factories in Sydney's south-west. Seven News reporter Jessica Dietrich
is at Greenacre. Jess, you've just spoken
to one of the business owners?

That's right, Nat.

That's right, Nat. Steve Smith and he - we are actually firefighters saved his business but he feels very sorry for his neighbours that have lost their factories here. Three have been destroyed on this street. The fire started in a car wrecking yard behind this street and it spread to the neighbouring factories. Now, Steve Smith says he just feels sorry for everyone who has lost business because of this. The alarm went off this morning at - I think it was about 3.37 and it has just turned around and we just thought it was a hiccup with the mice or something like that and come in here this morning and they said initially it was down the road but here we are, it's just devastating.The big thing is nobody was hurt, Nat. You can see how big this site it. At least 100m by 150m wide. Now, we have had will 80 firefighters and 20 fire trucks out here for several hours. They have managed to contain the blaze. We have got police here, they are waiting to gets the all clear so they can go in and assess just how it started. Blizzard-like conditions are gripping the country's southern
and south-eastern states,

brining down trees
and causing extensive flooding. Sunrise correspondent Nathan
Templeton is at Port Melbourne. Nathan, more cold temperatures, rain
and even snow are forecast today?

Yes, Nat, right across Australia. People will need to rug up today. Here in Melbourne, we are bracing for the coldest day of the year

for the coldest day of the year so far. Snow expected far and wide across the country. This is at Falls Creek. There is about 25cm have fallen overnight. Good timing for families who like skiing with school holidays starting on Monday. In Perisher, they have had even more, about 35cm, even some snow forecast for the Granite belt in Queensland. So the cold weather is moving to the north. Last night it was Victoria and South Australia that really copped When the cold front came,
it came with force. that really copped it. The most powerful low
for almost 12 months, earning it the title
of an Antarctic blast. The first affected were drivers
on Melbourne's Nepean Highway.

Then it all got dark then there
was this huge explosions like a truck tyre was exploding. Then all's I saw
was this tree and glass. Fallen trees crushed cars
on the shores of Port Phillip Bay.

Overnight, the southern states
were smashed with more heavy rain
and wind gusts topping 90km/h. The bureau issued
severe weather warnings for Victoria and South Australia. Heavy rain flooded streets and
brought ceilings down in Melbourne. We were coming down the stairs
at one point and I felt a bit of water
drop on my shoulder. So I looked up and sure enough,
the roof's about to cave in. I heard it coming down so I dived. Residents in Adelaide were
also racing to save what they could. The SES handed out
thousands of sandbags in preparation for the downpour. Don't know what we're gonna do! It was mayhem for motorists too - the warning for drivers -
don't take any unnecessary risks.

Best on

Best on ground, goes to this emergency services worker who carried a woman across a CBD street. Well done to the SES. Or her sneakers. Thank you very much, Nathan. To more breaking news - there's been a serious car crash
causing delays at Plainland west of Brisbane. Sunrise correspondent
Michelle Tapper joins us live. Michelle, has anyone been injured?

Good morning, Nat, one person has been airlifted to hospital with serious leg injuries. They were trapped inside their car for about an hour. Rescuers had to cut them out. This head on collision an hour. Rescuers had to cut them
out. This head on collision happened about 6.10 this morning It is causing quite a mess on Donaldson Road which is just off the Warrego Highway. Police say there will be very long delays as they work to clear up the mess. The forensic crash unit is investigating.Thank you, Michelle. forensic crash unit is
investigating.Thank you, Michelle. A gunman has been shot dead
by police after he stormed a cinema in Germany
and opened fire on people inside. Seven News Europe correspondent
Cath Turner is following the story. Cath, what do we know
about the shooter?

Nat,

Nat, a cinema employee has described the gunman as being aged in his early 20s and said he spoke in broken English. Police say he was mentally disturbed but did not have an "Islamic message." A split second of confusion then they hit the floor, huddling
underneath the desk for cover. Seconds later,
there's a stampede towards the door, as dozens of people
run for their lives. The two employees keep their heads
down for a few moments and then make their move,
bolting for the exit. Outside, police from
a special response unit cordoned off the area
around the building. They received an emergency call

saying there was an armed man
wearing a mask inside the cinema complex. The caller said four shots
had been fired. With the Orlando shooting
still fresh in everyone's minds, authorities feared a hostage
situation, with children inside. Initial reports suggested up
to 50 people had been wounded. It was later confirmed
they suffered minor injuries when police used tear gas
during the operation. Officers found the gunman inside
with a number of hostages. He was shot dead.
No-one else was harmed. Authorities have suggested
the man was mentally unstable rather than a terrorist.

Police are trying to work out whether a hand grenade and a explosives vest were fake or real found near his body. Ballots are being counted
across the UK after the massive vote to determine if Britain
will leave the European Union. Seven News Europe bureau chief
Hugh Whitfeld is in London. Hugh, which way does it look like
it's heading?

Nat, a poll just released in the last hour suggests that Britain will remain in the EU 52-48. That is just a poll. The result that matters is the one that is being counted right now. Right across the UK, in northerly, Scotland, Wales and in England after millions of people cast their votes today.

(REPORTERS SHOUT) British Prime Minister David Cameron
up early - eager to cast his vote
for the European referendum. But it's not up to just him
to decide if there will be a Brexit. 46 million people are registered
to have their say. I can't even fathom leaving the EU. I dunno, Britain is part of the EU. It just wouldn't be the same
without it. I think that the wisdom
of the British people will filter through this process and there'll be a way
to get through this. The question - "should the United Kingdom remain
a member of the European Union "or leave?" Today's vote is a bit different
from other elections. I think the big difference
is that every vote counts. There are no safe seats
there are no marginal seats, there's no special areas where
politicians put their resources for swing voters. Every single vote is equal
no matter where you live. The polls have now closed
and the counting is underway. There are 382 local counts
across the country which will feed
into regional centres. The official result is expected
to be announced later today.

These are live pictures of the counting right away right across the country as we await the final result. That will go into the wee hours of the morning here. People will go to bed and wake up and watch breakfast television here to get the result. Probably around 3 o'clock this afternoon in Australia.Our time, thank you, Hugh. The Nigerian navy is working to recover a group of mine workers,
including three Australians, kidnapped in Nigeria. Mark Gabbedy, Jack Courantz
and Peter Zoutenbier were among a group of seven people
kidnapped outside Calabar.

Foreign minister said the safety of the hostages is the main issue.It has been made clear at the national level that the Australian Government is treating this very seriously.At this stage, there are no reports of any demands being made by the kidnappers. More Australians who were injured
in a tour bus crash in Vanuatu been flown back to Australia. A plane carrying two victims,
a 7- and an 11-year-old arrived in Queensland this morning.

The 11-year -old was previously
listed as critical but his condition has improved. 11 Australian passengers of a
P&O cruise ship were on the tour bus when it crashed
into another vehicle. Two Vanuatu locals died
in the accident.

Former prime minister Paul Keating
says the plan to lower the nation's
corporate tax rate is irresponsible and a major impact
on the federal budget. We have reporters
following our leaders on the trail. First to Seven's political reporter
Tim Lester in Darwin with Bill Shorten. Tim, how much of a setback
is this for the Coalition?

Morning, Nat, it might not have

been a set back for the government had they not made so much of Paul Keating a as a likely supporter of their $50 billion ten year tax cuts. They have often taunted Labor that Labor's former treasurer and prime minister was a great tax cutter and Labor ought to be the same. Well, Mr Keating is not a supporter of the corporate tax cuts, he has finally bitten back with a letter to the financial re crew saying they are irresponsible. He said he would never have cut taxes in this way when he did, he said he changed the budget and raised other taxes to pay for them. This as Labor deals with increasing pressure over its campaign on the possible privatisation of Medicare. Branded by many and certainly the government, as a scare campaign. One newspaper this morning cast International Rules Bill Shorten as Billnocchio, lying essentially about the campaign. Bill Shorten is not backing off. He will be arguing that veterans affairs, health and pharmaceutical payments, $2.5 billion a year are under attack from the government.Speaking of Medi-scare, let's go to Marija in Launceston who is following Malcolm Turnbull. Despite the backlash, the Medicare issue is gaining traction in some areas.It certainly appears that way. It seems to be tracking quite well here in Tasmania's north. There are a number of marginal seats in Tasmania that the coalition only holds by less than 5%. It is looking like between 1003 of those marginal seats could be lost at this up coming election. They were only one by the could coalition in 2013, no surprise that Malcolm Turnbull has decided to make a stop over here. It's his third stop in Tasmania. He was here about two weeks ago to serve the flood damage experienced here a couple of weeks back. He is focusing on Launceston. He is promising about $150 million to expand and relocate the University of Tasmania campuses in Launceston and Bernie. He won't be in Tassie for long. He is already heading off to his next stop this afternoon. Thank you both, have fun out there, you two. One of the contenders for
the world's ugliest dog contest is getting attention because he has a hairstyle similar
to Donald Trump's. The pooch has a bald body,

but makes up for it
with his flowing head of hair. He's currently in second place
on the online vote. The pup's owner thinks Donald Trump's popularity
in the presidential election will give him the edge he needs
to win.

Do we know if Donald Trump has a bald body?Or does he endorse the puppy.I am trying to get that question out of my mind, does he have a bald body.It is still breakfast, Sam, I don't think we need to know that! Collingwood has recalled
Travis Cloke for tonight's clash with Fremantle
at the MCG. The match is live and free
on Seven and 7mate. A turbulent week for the Kangaroos ended in a dismal 33-point loss
to the Crows at Adelaide Oval last night. The Crows kicked a club record
28 behinds and this brilliant effort from
Rory Atkins ended up being one of them after it was ruled to have been
touched by Jack Ziebell. Lindsay Thomas came up
with a rare moment of genius as North crashed
to its third straight defeat. COMMENTATOR: Thomas, he hasn't,
has he? He has!

There's no doubt the bye's
coming at a good time for us. It'll give us an opportunity
to re-set. The surging Crows have now won
five matches in a row.

All eyes are on Aussie
basketballing prodigy Ben Simmons in the countdown
to this morning's NBA draft. The 19-year-old is widely expected
to be the number one pick. That means he'll join up with former
Boomers coach Brett Brown at the Philadelphia 76ers.

Brown also coached Ben's dad,
Dave Simmons, in the NBL. Simmons has opted not to represent
Australia at the Rio Olympics but says he's keen to play
for the Boomers in future.

Obviously he will have a lot on his plate after this draft.And a lot of money.A lot, a lot, a lot of money.How old is he?19 or 20.He earns $40 million a year.That's a fair start in life. Now to today's weather. Sam Mac is at Fairfield High School
this morning.

I have been heading back to school or Mac to school.

or Mac to school. We started the week to Oatlands, then we went to free man Catholic college. And now, Fairfield High in the west of Sydney doing a great job. Here is a little taste of our week heading back to school.

# The kids are dressed in green and the principal is 17. Everybody scream # Where are we kids? Come on, join us.A little bit louder.Good morning kindergarten Rio. Good morning, Mr Mac. We have got - hello.Hello, my maim Borat.Nice to meet you, Borat.This is Borat. I didn't know you were so passionate about science.I like gypsy magic. I do not believe in science. These people are good.For the first time in my life, I feel popular at school. Hi everyone. # Some people fight for freedom # But I would fight for free man # The door is meant to be quicker. Good job. How about that! So look, so much fun this week. Thank you to all the schools who have invited us in, welcomed us in, apart from one malfunctioning door. We will wrap things up shortly with Fairfield but first, let's check your weather around the country. Sunrise weather brought to you by Australia's number one probiotic,

This may sound like a joke, but backwards running
is a booming sport. Championships are being held
in Europe and the community of backwards
running athletes, has grown all around the world. It's also known as retro-running. Our next guest is a 3-time
world champion and his dream is to make
retro-running an Olympic sport. A lot of people have told me
that what I do isn't serious. That it's a bit silly,
that it's not a real sport. But they don't know me. They haven't seen me getting up
at 4:30 five mornings a week. They haven't felt the pain
and nursed the bruises. They haven't seen me take
the gold medal at three consecutive
world championships. I know my style is a bit different,
that it's not mainstream, that it's kind of backward-looking. But it's my style and it's who I am. And I'm a world champion.

Garret Doherty joins us now
from Dublin. Garret, good morning. How did you discover your love
of retro-running? Thank

Thank you very much and good morning. Nice to be on the show. I came upon it myself. It was kind of spiritual and it was to do with the sun. I was running forward in the park in spring 2009. I don't know the exact date but I bet it was around the time that they changed the clock. Probably that week, even that day and I think it's related. So I was out for a forward jog in the park and it was the first decent spring day of the year and I had my T-shirt off and I came to a part in the park where there was no more sun and just at that shadow, I turned around and turned around to fails the sun on my front. I immediately started jogging backwards and I noticed the fascination but then it was the children who really got me, they were fascinated and intrigued and asking minister tharnts, "Mamy, why is he running backwards and doing that?" So now I've been to six schools to teach them why and how they should run backwards. And the main reason is that it teaches them to stand up straight and think for themselves.Good point. That was a terrific story of how it originally started. Is it dangerous. So with the first sun of the day when you do that and reversing, how did you not run into a tree or the children or another jogger?I was in Fairview Park in Dublin and I was running on the park on the tarmac, which is like three metres wide. And so, I just stayed at the edge, like near the grass and the path so the rest of the people with their prams and whatever, they had plenty of room. So I used that grass edge and the path as my guide. You're only going 40% or 50% of the speed there and if you look to the side, you can see two thirds of what's behind you. You get the hang of it and your senses pick up as you go along. Just like the blind people go very well, the retro running is very similar because you're using a different side of the brain and the smell and touch and everything is increased.I'd like to ask you if you start at the finish line and finish at the starting line, but that's for another day! Thank you very much.

Still ahead this

It's news time now with Nat.

A huge blaze has ripped through
a factory complex in south-western Sydney
this morning, forcing the closure
of a number of busy roads. Seven News reporter Jessica Dietrich
is at Greenacre. Jess, what's traffic like
in the area now? We're hearing

We're hearing that traffic congestion has finally eased in that area. The roads that were closed have since reopened and things are returning to normal. But it was a huge blaze. It burnt for several hours. They had 80 firefighters and more than 20 fire trucks here from 3 am battling this massive inferno. Now, witnesses say that they first heard a massive explosion before looking out to see shooting up to 20m into the sky. We know that it started in a car-wrecking card and then it spread to the three buildings behind me, the three factories have been completely destroyed. It was a huge site. 100 x 150m. We have police on stand by waiting to get in there to determine exactly how it started.Thank you. In more breaking news - emergency services are at the scene
of a serious car accident at Plainland, west of Brisbane. Two cars collided head-on
just after 6:00 this morning and the accident is now causing
delays on Donaldson Road just off the Warrego Highway.

One person has been airlifted to
hospital with serious leg injuries; they were trapped inside their car
for around an hour. Diversions are in place and motorists are urged
to avoid the area.

The year's strongest cold front
is moving north after blasting the southern states
with snow, rain, strong winds and flooding. SES crews were kept busy in
Melbourne and Adelaide overnight, rescuing trapped drivers and assisting with flooded
businesses and damaged homes. Residents on the east coast are now being warned to prepare
for cold temperatures as the powerful front moves north. More than 35 centimetres of snow has fallen at some
of our ski resorts overnight with more forecast in coming days.

We'll find out later today whether the UK will leave
the European Union. More than 46 million votes are being
tallied across Britain. These are live pictures
from Westminster. It's only the third referendum
in British history. The vote is expected to be close, but right now it seems like
they'll stay. The official result should be
announced this afternoon. Families of three Australians
kidnapped in Nigeria are anxiously waiting for
news on their loved ones. Australians Mark Gabbedy,
Jack Couranz and Peter Zoutenbier were among a group
of seven mine workers taken captive on the outskirts
of the city of Calabar. There's been no claim made yet but our concern is the wellbeing,
the safety of these people

and we are working as hard as we can
to free them. One Australian managed to escape
but their driver was killed. There wasn't much monkey business
at a birthday party for a rare chimpanzee at a zoo
in Scotland. The chimp named Velu,
turned two years old, and zookeepers marked the occasion
by throwing a big bash. The animals were given their
favourite treats, wrapped up like presents. Velu even got given a little cake.

it started.Thank you.
That is a party. Don't tell me that I don't bring you the big ones. Thank you very.. That's the highlight of your journalism career, I think.That's it. Velu's birthday party. We love a monkey there.Said no-one, ever. Well, you need something to ease into the weekend. You need to switch off!The monkey birthday party.Yeah, let's switch our brains right off now and go to Sam with the weather! No, just joking. NoiThat's right like a monkey, Sam. Always do. Very exciting, guys on a Friday. I'm getting a little bit emotional because potentially, in a matter of minutes, I am going to graduate from Fairfield High School but first, let's check the weather around Australia. Sunrise weather brought to you by Australia's number one probiotic,
Inner Health Plus, kept live and cool protected
in the fridge.

A vigorous cold front is generating
damaging winds and heavy rain to South Australia, Victoria
and Tasmania,

with snow lowering
to less than 1000m over the alps. A trough is producing showers over western
and inland Western Australia, the Northern Territory, Queensland
and northern New South Wales. Brisbane - possible light rain
this morning. Windy and partly cloudy
for Sydney today. Canberra can expect showers
and wind to ease. Showers for
Melbourne. Hobart -
showers.

Showers and wind easing
for Adelaide. Partly cloudy
for Perth And Darwin -
mostly sunny.

Principal, I believe this is my moment.It definitely, happy graduation from Fairfield High condition school.I've graduated, complete with my official certificate. How did you graduate after one day?Don't ask too many questions! I have my backing band over here and I'm going to make a speech to the class of 2016. Let's do it, guys. To the class of 2016, as I stand here today, I look around this room. I see so many faces. Faces that will be with ple forever. My message to this class of 2016 is the hashtag, believe. Don't let anyone tell you that something is impossible. To the haters who tried to tell me that it was impossible for a man in his 30s to graduate, you were wrong. Because I stand here today to say - I did it. You were wrong. It seems like a lifetime ago I walked through those Fairfield doors for the very first time. It was actually three hours ago. My point is - life goes quick. So live it. Thank you so much, guys. And if we cue our song, we're going to say goodbye to the people and the class of 2016.

So many lifelong connections there. Friends forever, Sam.You have to stay for the finale. We're going to say goodbye. Here we go, here we go!

Now someone is going to have to get a ladder. If that doesn't say hashtag believe, I don't know what will.Inspirational.

to find Weet-Bix on the supermarket shelves. Plus, helping around the house. The controversial mum who reckons
kids don't need to do chores.

It's a dream come true! We've changed the lives
of so many Aussies... This is just gonna be able
to help us so much! ..giving away over $10 million. Totally changed my life. ..and we're not stopping there. $100,000! You could be a winner
if you wake up with Sunrise.

In the Sunrise Newsfeed
this morning - after baby formula shortages, we could soon be seeing
a shortage of Weet-Bix on our supermarket shelves. The Daily Telegraph reports the breakfast cereal is being
cleared from our stores and sold to Chinese consumers
for as much as $50 a box. Let's bring in comedian Akmal Saleh, News.com.au editor-at-large
Melissa Hoyer and Steve Pennells
from the Sunday Night program. Given the cuts in some
of our traditional industries, should we be embracing demand
from China for our food products and expanding those opportunities?

You go first because I've talked all morning.I think there's clearly a supply and demand there. If I'm going to China and packing a whole lot of wet bicks, does it go in there. How much boxes of Wee-Bix you have there. It's like Russia, getting the Levis in Russia years ago, that was currency.It depended what you had in the pockets.What did you have in the pockets? Currency. No, but the Weet-Bix are huge in China. Which means that there will be a whole lot there in China and people will be going and trying to use the spoon but they'll make idiots of themselves. One guy will be very competent with the spoon and say, at least have a go. Did you suggest that you eat WeetBix with cop sticks?I don't know, that's how the Chinese people eat them.They've taken our milk. They come over here and take our Weet-Bix.I think that we need to be a little bit savvy here as Australians. We have all of these terrific products, fresh produce and great wines. You can buy an Australian wine here for $25 and they would be selling it for $100. Why are other people selling them for $50. You know, the Chinese are coming here and buying them and selling them at home. Why aren't we exporting them for huge amounts of money?That's an idea. Let's tap into this.And do you think that it would take off?My dad, when we first immigrated here and he tried Vegemite, he said, "This is not something to be eaten, this is something that you can use to fix your car with," and he did. But you know, the guy from the Weet-Bix, the guy who invented it is a 7th Day Adventist.Is that true?It's true. Well, it was in the information that I got. I wonder if he went around Chinese houses knocking on doors and saying - I wonder if we can come in and talk to you about fibre!An interesting concept. But moving on. Should kids be forced to do chores?Yes.I don't have kids.Either do I, but yes.One blogger is saying that kids should be just kids and we shouldn't force them to do work around the house. My wife would certainly disagree with that.Look at this boy lying on the bed playing his Guus Hiddink ar. You know, especially a child of that age, he's a teenage boy. What is this boy going to be like as a man? He's going to be lying on his bed with a bigger guitar.You work for money, you work and you get money. You get an allowance.Chores for most kids gives you a responsibility.What is the right age?Once you're... I reckon seven or eight.It depends on the chore. Send them to the factory! Look, I don't have kids but I couldn't think of a reason to have kids, but now I do. If I had kids, I would... So they can do the dishes.Make them work.I would have a sweat shop under the house making Weet-Bix for the Chinese! Earn your keep, that's what I would do. And have a lot of them. I would breed them just like that. It depends on the chore.If it is just putting the toys back in the box there. Steve, you have a story on Sunday Night about a lengthy multi-state man-hunt. I've seen the promos. Yes, he went on a bit of a crime spree and ended up in a shootout with police and were on the fun for several days.A father and son thing?Yes.Maybe the son was just doing the chores.Oh, stop it. This is a fascinating story. We covered this for weeks on end and they managed to hide out for ages.We've gone and looking through and traying his victims and this story that's come out is extraordinary and the way that the people operated for ten years. And I've been working with Penelope Cross, a former Sunrise reporter. And an amazing job there. These guys got away with it for eight years.With he look forward to seeing that on Sunday. Thank you, guys.

Ahead on Sunrise - Zac Efron has a crack at
an Aussie accent. If I did, I'd say she was a little clingy and she'd

clingy and she'd freak a lot of people out!

So has he nailed it? And the famous footballers fighting
family health issues, using salt.

Coming up after Sunrise - she lost
her baby and her husband in a matter of months. Now find out how one woman triumphed
over the odds to inspire others. Plus, the 11-year-old book worm
turned publishing powerhouse. And Mel Greig's amazing
transformation. How a holiday with an ex
helped her lose weight and gain a whole new perspective. On The Morning Show, next.

Australians have been
using salt therapy to treat skin and breathing problems
for more than a decade now. But the alternative health practice
is experiencing a sudden rise in popularity.

We sent Sunrise correspondent
Nathan Templeton along to see what it's all about. And Nathan, the clients you found
weren't who we expected?

Snroo that's right. Salt therapy aims to help people with a wide variety of ailments and it has a wide variety of clients ranging from the very small to much bigger fem. -- people.

An AFL champion and one of footy's
toughest players, Luke Hodge, may be the last person
you'd expect to see walking into a salt therapy centre. But the Hawthorn captain
swears by the treatment. I started with the football club
with Hawthorn about three years ago. It's just came in as a great way
to recover.

We push ourselves
to the nth degree in games and blokes often get crook
or struggle to breath and sleep's the best form
of recovery whether you're an adult or a kid. And after you come in here, the
breathing passages are a lot better and how you sleep that night
is sensational. We blow a dry aerosol salt
into the room and you're just breathing naturally. Because the salt is
natural anti-inflammatory, it's antihistamine, it's anti-viral
and anti-bacterial so as you're breathing in the salts it works on congestion, allergies,
inflammation of the skin and the airways. Luke and his wife, Lauren,
regularly visit the rooms at Salts of the Earth
with their three children. 5-month-old Leo has eczema and the Hodges are convinced
these sessions soothe it. It really helps with that. And then you know what kids
are like - I've got a 3-year-old
and a 7-year-old kids at kinder, come home with the flu
every second week. So we bring them in here
for their health but also for our health as well. It's a growing trend
among footballers.

It's a growing trend
among footballers. Melbourne captain Nathan Jones
and daughter Bobbi are clearly big fans. as are Richmond skipper
Trent Cotchin and Harper. Even Megan Gale
recently Instagramed a photo of her son, River. Demons player Jake Melksham
and his partner, Stacey, bring their little girl, Franky, in
twice a week. She wasn't sleeping
through the night and now from the first night
we came in here, started sleeping through the night. She's got eczema as well and it's definitely helped
clear up her eczema. Also if you've got a bit of a cold
or you're a bit nasaly, it clears up your sinuses.

Twins Arlo and Macey were born
15 weeks premature. Mum Kate was told salt therapy might
assist their under-developed lungs. There was no more loud breathing. There was no more snorting
when they were sleeping. There was no more snoring. And they were just
more settled babies. The Australian Lung Foundation
is confident salt therapy doesn't cause any harm, but they say as yet there's no
scientific evidence of its benefits. And Salts of the Earth stresses the treatment can't cure exisiting
conditions, only ease the symptoms.

It's a complemenatry therapy so we don't say stop any medication
you're currently on but what we do say is that
it makes it more effective. # Help, I need somebody. # I CAN definitely vouch
that it's a great place for a nap although sadly
not all the childish behaviour is limited to the kids' room.

Another salty recovery method that the footballers use is to stand here in the freezing cold in Port Melbourne. But I don't get paid as much as them and I'm not prepared to strip off today!Too right. Why do you have to wear hair nets in there?I guess just to keep it hygenic. The salt is blown out of a hole in the wall and keep the dirt out because the kids play in the salt on the ground.I'm is as Nated by that. Salt air, it's good for you. Thank you for that. Have a great weekend. We'll see you next week.

Still to come - A huge blaze tears
through a Sydney factory complex. Plus, your forecast for day ahead
as an icy blast hits. And a jury decides if Led Zeppelin
copied Stairway To Heaven.

we've got great new specials. Like 4-pack V Energy drink - now half price. And 118-200g Nestle blocks - also half price. So hurry in. Only at Woolworths.

(Silence)

(Exhales)

Mate, I'm so sorry.
I thought there was time. You just pulled out. I don't have time to stop. Well, come on, mate.
I mean, it was a simple mistake. I know if I was going
a bit slower, may...

Please. I've got my boy in the back.

I'm going too fast.

I'm sorry.

Sunrise is brought to you
by Jetstar. Every day is a brand new chance
to go somewhere new. All day, every day low fares.

Up to 80 firefighters have contained
a huge blaze in south-west Sydney. It started in a car wrecking yard
and spread to three factories. A man has been flown to hospital
and diversions are in place after a serious head-on collision
at Plainland, west of Brisbane. A mother has been treated for burns
after a fire in her Melbourne home. Her kids may have been playing
with a lighter. They're counting votes
across Britain,

as the country decides
if it will leave the European Union. And a strong cold front is moving
north through New South Wales after blasting southern states. More than 35 centimetres of snow fell at Thredbo and Perisher
overnight. And checking
the weather. Possible light rain
for Brisbane this morning. Windy and partly cloudy
for Sydney. Showers and wind easing for Canberra
and Adelaide. Showers for Melbourne
and Hobart. Partly cloudy
for Perth. And a mostly sunny day
for Darwin. The Sunrise showbiz report
brought to you by Australian Pork. Pork fillets have less than
half the fat of beef fillets. They're also a valuable source
of iron. Get some pork on your fork.

Are you a Zac Efron fan?
If you are, we have some good news. Oh, yeah!He's good.

He's coming to Australia. Zac will be walking the red carpet
for the premiere of his new flick
Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates. And he's already practicing
his Aussie accent.

Excuse me, sir.
Do you enjoy the taste of tequila? Why, yes I do.

But I only drink my brand and you
will not convince me otherwise. I know that's your brother!
He dated my niece! Look, mate. I don't know your niece.
OK. But if I did,
I'd say she's a little clingy and she'd freak a lot of people out. Name's Rick.
Just got in from Melbourne. He'll be joined by co-star
Adam Devine

from Pitch Perfect and Workaholics. The premiere will be held in Sydney
on July 6. Led Zeppelin has been found
not guilty of stealing the opening riff
to Stairway to Heaven. Robert Plant and Jimmy Page
were accused of pinching the famous passage
from LA-based band Spirit. But the jury decided the tunes
were differently substantially. This isn't the first time Led Zeppelin has been accused
of stealing another artist's work. The band has reached settlements
over songwriting credits for Whole Lotta Love, Lemon Song
and Dazed and Confused.

Oh, man, look,
it's Jenny over in that gravy. My God, she looks so hot!
