Hello and welcome to Sunrise. Also this morning,
truck terror - A family's terrifying highway
encounter caught on camera.

Yes, I am videoing!And, why they are doing away with English tests for Drivers.

An Australian man jailed
in Bali on drugs charges has faced an intense night
of interrogations. Giuseppe Serafino is yet
to be formally charged, but has admitted to police he used hashish to battle
the effects of cancer. Paraded by Indonesian
authorities, masked by balaclavas, 48-year old Perth man
Guiseppe Serafino and 54-year-old British national
David Fox. In handcuffs and prison jumpsuits they're marched into
Denpasar Police station after hours of interrogations by
Bali's notorioius narcotics unit. Holding up their haul
for photographers. Several black satchels which investigators say
contained 17 grams of hashish, also known as cannabis residue. As well as paraphenalia
and a pair of boxing gloves, apparently used to smuggle
the drugs. Mr Serafino was arrested
in his home at the weekend. Detectives followed
a communication chain to find David Fox,
a retired war correspondent, now accused of supplying
the drugs. This case is based
on information there is foreigner with drugs
and police arrest him on October 8, 2016 at his house. He also informed Police
of a friend who could help buy hashish. Police contacted David Matthew
Fox to make a transation before police arrested David
in Samur. Police have arrested
one of their own and are investigating
a member of the military in connection to the case. Mr Serafino says he was using
the hashish to cope with cancer. But, for this, both men could face
up to 20 years in prison.

And has been charged after fleeing from Queensland courthouse. To be seven-year-old evaded custody before signing on to eat motel roof. He put himself in further danger by jumping off the roof. Fortunately, he landed correctly and was taken back to custody.

The jury in the trial of
accused murderer Gable Tostee is expected to hear
more audio recordings of the moments before
Warriena Wright plunged to her death
from a Gold Coast balcony. The Crown alleges the recordings shown at the beginning
of the trial show the 30-year-old becoming
increasingly aggressive. Mr Tostee pleaded not guilty
at yesterday's hearing, his barrister suggesting
Ms Wright was acting erratically herself. Today the court will hear further
evidence from police. Tiahleigh Palmer's former
foster-mother and brother will plead guilty for their role
in covering up her murder on the Gold Coast. Lawyers confirmed
Julene and Josh Thorburn will be key witnesses
in the trial against former foster-father
Rick Thorburn. He's accused of killing
the 12-year-old school girl to cover up a sexual relationship
with foster-brother Trent. Look, they've been lying
and being deceitful for the last eleven months, I think the least they can do
is start being truthful now. 19-year-old Trent
is charged with incest. Rick Thorburn is yet to face
court over the murder charges.

A father has died in hospital after a one

Attack in Brisbane. The family turned off his life support late yesterday. The 48-year-old was taken to Princess Alexandria Hospital on Saturday after an alleged argument on the street. Police say they are making progress in the hunt for the suspect, captured on CCTV after the attack. Thousands of homes are still without that as wild weather continues in Melbourne. Nathan joined us, a man was hurt overnight?Yes, the gentleman very unlucky, believed around midnight he was using the bathroom when a tile from a damaged roof fell and hit him on the head. He was taken to hospital, thankfully injuries were minor. A large branch is understood to have come down the previous evening, the state emergency service didn't have a chance to get to it and when the high winds returned last night it shifted the branch, which dislodged a tile, which fell and struck him. Absolutely obliterated the tiles and caused some internal damage. After those very high winds savaged the State on Sunday night there was a brief respite yesterday, a short but damaging storm returned yesterday afternoon, the state emergency service received more than 5000 calls over 36 hours, 2000 trees have come down across the state. Heavy rain in the North, some flood warnings in place. Thankfully, it looks like a wild weather has passed.

Same-sex marriage will dominate
debate in Canberra today, with Labor finally expected
to oppose a plebiscite. Seven News political reporter
Olivia Leeming joins us from Parliament House. Olivia, the government
is also proposing changes to the Marriage Act?

George Brandis took these changes to Cabinet last night to not only legalise same-sex marriage, but also protections for religious ministers and celebrants who object so they would not have to perform these ceremonies. Same-sex weddings overseas would be recognised in Australia. The coalition still wants a plebiscite, with George Brandis urging labour to support it. The best way to do it is to bring the whole community with you, and I am utterly convinced that you are more likely to do that by involving the whole community in the act of choice.We understand the Labor Party will decide to block the plebiscite when the caucus meets later today, considering key crossbenchers do not support the idea, it almost certainly will not succeed.

Hillary Clinton has solidified
her lead over Donald Trump following yesterday's
antic-filled presidential debate. Seven News US bureau chief
Mike Amor joins us from Saint Louis,
Missouri. Mike, Trump's attacks
on the Clintons weren't enough for him
to win back any support.

That's right. It was a better

That's right. It was a better performance by Donald Trump in the second debate, but a new NBC poll shows Hillary Clinton has extended her lead to 11 points, getting into landslide territory, all of this after what could be best described as one of the nasty hub rates in US political history.

No handshake at the start, and that 11-year old sexually
crude tape on everyone's mind. This was locker room talk. It represents exactly who he is. But Donald trump was pointing
his fingers at Bill Clinton. There's never been anybody
in the history of politics in this nation that's been
more abusive to women. The Trump campaign brought three women
who had made sexual accusations against Clinton to the debate, but said it was all about
his opponent. This does not have to do
with Bill Clinton, it has to do with the way
Hillary Clinton shamed and blamed the women
in Bill Clinton's life. Clinton's campaign says she was there to talk
about important matters. Hillary came to this debate
to talk about the issues, to talk about the policies
and plan that she has that are gonna make a difference
in people's lives. With many Republicans
fleeing the Trump ship, the brash billionaire
stayed on the offensive, attacking Clinton's use
of a private email server while Secretary of State. It's just awfully good someone with
the temperament of Donald Trump isn't in charge
of the law in our country. Because you'd be in jail! Clinton said again Trump
is unfit to be president, while Trump kept
dodging her punches, trying over and over to talk
about issues, from ISIS to taxes.

While Donald Trump was trying for the most powerful job in the world, the entertainment television host, Billy Bush, a cousin of George W Bush, was suspended by NBC for his involvement in the audiotape 11 years ago.

New South Wales
Premier Mike Baird has dined
with one of his harshest critics, Allan Jones, as he garners support
on reversing his controversial
greyhound racing ban. Seven News reporter
Jessica Dietrich is live from State Parliament. Jess, what's brought about
this change of heart?

We know that the Premier's popularity is basically nosediving since he made the shock decision to eradicate greyhound racing in New South Wales, so speculation is this could be part of trying to save his political career. Three months ago he put the industry on notice of a shutdown come next to lie, citing overwhelming evidence of animal cruelty, but this morning he is expected to announce an extraordinary backflip on that decision. A reversed policy is expected to include getting trainers and owners to sign an agreement guaranteeing better treatment of these animals including a plan to retire dogs humanely as well as controlled breeding. He, it has been distressing for tens of thousands of people who were set to lose their livelihoods over this decision and would look for other ways to make ends meet, so no doubt they will be watching and waiting to this potential decision this morning, which would mean they are back in business.

A drunk driver has lost control
of his car in Sydney's inner west mounting a concrete road barrier
and getting stuck. Police arrived at the scene
at Homebush West just after midnight to find the car with two wheels
up on the barrier and a 28-year-old man
standing nearby. He allegedly recorded
a blood alcohol limit of 0.15 and was later charged
with high range drink driving. He'll appear in court next month. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge
and Prince Harry have come together to mark World
Mental Health Day. Seven News reporter
Ben Lewis joins me now from London. Good morning, Ben. It's something the trio feel
very strongly about.

Good morning, absolutely. The Duke and Duchess are back in the United Kingdom after their tour of Canada and Harry has returned from Africa, they wanted to be selling special to mark mental world held they said they went to great heights in London Eye.

High above London, the royals were perfectly
positioned to spot Kensington Palace, but their focus was on those
who had joined them in the pod, those who have had
mental health issues, but sought help and treatment. Mental health
is not a dirty word. We all have mental health, like we do physical health,
good or ill. But not seeking help
at those times, it all seems too much
or we are depressed or anxious, can impact
the rest of our lives. The visit to
the tourist attraction was in aid of
world mental health day. One in four people are affected, and the young royals
are putting their attention towards ensuring people who need
support services can get them. The three of us are coming
to the realisation that more needs to be done
to support those who have been seeking help. Their Heads Together initiative
wants young people to realise it's OK
to talk about mental health, particularly in environments
where the subject is not always openly discussed, like school, sporting clubs
and the military. Too often we think that
mental health problems are something that happen
to other people and not us, but we will all experience
pressure on our mental health at some point during our lives. It's hoped that if the royals can speak about mental health
so openly, others will feel
that they can to.

And the appearance marks the start of a busy week for the Duchess of Cambridge, tomorrow she goes to the Netherlands for her first ever solo engagements overseas, to meet the King, and she will discuss mental health issueswith young people from Holland. Is that a Harry tribute be it from here? It's the bestI can muster., This beard. This is about three months growth. Good effort! Just back from the honeymoon, it is getting colder in England.Kate Spade dress, by the way, on Duchess Kate.She is a designer. We don't expect you to know it, David.What was Harry wearing?It doesn't matter what Harry was wearing.

Now to today's weather. And Sam Mac's at Paramatta
in Sydney.

Morning, an important reason we are in Parramatta, it is breast cancer awareness month, and we are working with the McGrath foundation and British Petroleum to raise as much money as possible, one of the key things we want to do is raise money with the McGrath foundation to have a breast care nurse, they proceed to amazing work, we will chat to people involved this morning, and if you are in the area, we will give away free fuel cards, Glenn McGrath will join us, a big morning ahead of us. Let's check the weather.

Coming up - Johnathan Thurston's big plans
for Perth. Plus, trade season shock. Carlton set to lose star
midfielder Bryce Gibbs. Also, back from the dead. Could Tasmanian Tigers
actually exist? And your ultimate guide to the
mega-stars heading our way.

Ryan has the sport. The first major surprise
of the AFL trade period, involves Carlton star
Bryce Gibbs, requesting a move
to the Adelaide Crows. Gibbs has three years left
on his contract at the Blues, and Carlton officials were caught
by surprise. Would you have preferred
maybe to announce it yourself, or Bryce announce it,
rather than another footy club? I think it would have been
more important to work through the issues with Bryce first. Carlton midfielder Zac Toohey,
is off contract and is set to join Geelong on a four-year deal. Johnathan Thurston would like
to see the NRL expanded, and believes Perth is ready
for a team. In camp with the Kangaroos,
JT also revealed his representative days
are far from over. I love representing my country,
and they'll pretty much have to kick me off this team. Cooper Cronk is still scarred
after Melbourne's Grand Final loss to Cronulla. I've been hiding away,
in my room for a while, trying not to read any papers
and trying to forget what happened. Australia faces New Zealand on
Saturday in Perth. The Western Sydney Wanderers
have once again been punished for bad spectator behaviour.

Flares were lit during
the Sydney Derby, so the threat
of a 3-point deduction has been extended until the end
of the A-League season. If flares are lit again,
the Wanderers will lose competition points. In Melbourne, the Socceroos
are expected to keep Tim Cahill on the bench for tonight's
World Cup qualifier, against Japan. He can be damaging
to any opponent, as he has been already
in this qualifying campaign, Australia leads their group
but recovery is a concern after Friday's match
in Saudi Arabia. Aussie Tyler Wright,
has to wait another day before hopefully securing
her maiden world title. The 22-year-old is in the
semi-finals in France and if she wins the event,
she'll clinch the World Surf League. Otherwise the title race
will be decided in the final event in Hawaii.

Haven't our girls been dominating the surfing?Did she surf in France? Is it common?Maybe a seasonal thing?I thought the sea was flat.That top or silly bit on the Atlantic.It's no Hawaii, credits credit I thought. Bigger than the 5 o'clock wave at Wagga Wagga. I believe you.

Ahead this morning - I do or I don't? Bill Shorten
set to decide the fate of the same-sex marriage
plebiscite. Plus, the eye in the sky that
could save people and sharks. And the Hollywood classic jumping from the silver screen
to the stage.

We'll have a double date with this, dirty dancing and 60 cans of ellipses do you have a favourite scene from the notebook?It's a good investment. The reason we are talking about this is because Bodyguard has a stage show coming soon.

An Australian man jailed
in Bali on drugs charges has faced an intense night
of interrogations. Seven News reporter
Matthew Selson is in Bali.

Any charges been made?They will be laid in a few days time after police finish collecting evidence. They're still trying to work out how many of the Indonesian army and police are involved in this alleged drug scent. Rated in front of the media and in the Balaclava's, their mustard & police station after hours of interrogations by Bali's notorious unit. Several black satchels which contain several grams of her she should, also known as cannabis resin. Also a pair of boxing gloves apparently used to smuggle the drugs. He was arrested at his home on the weekend.

Detectives followed
a communication chain to find David Fox,
a retired war correspondent, now accused of supplying
the drugs. This case is based
on information there is foreigner with drugs
and police arrest him on October 8, 2016 at his house. He also informed Police
of a friend who could help buy hashish. Police contacted David Matthew
Fox to make a transation before police arrested David
in Samur. Police have arrested
one of their own and are investigating
a member of the military in connection to the case. Mr Serafino says he was using
the hashish to cope with cancer. But, for this, both men could face
up to 20 years in prison.

Officers say they found out about the involvement of the Army and police when he got a text message asking if you want to do by the drug Ice.

A jury has heard audio recordings
of an argument between murder accused, Gable Tostee,
and Warriera Wright - moments before Ms Wright
plunged to her death off a Gold Coast balcony. Sunrise Correspondent Michelle
Tapper joins us now. Good morning Michelle,
what will happen today?

Your morning. The jury is likely to hear more of that dramatic audio recording. It is 199 minutes long. It was found on his phone which police confiscated from his father's car. They only heard an edited version of it and the prosecution told them yesterday that it one point in the audio, he says to her, you are lucky I have not tracked you off my balcony you God damn psycho little (BLEEP). She plunged her death 14 floors below because she was trying to escape and can I get back into the apartment. The defence claims that she was getting defensive and abusive towards their clients throughout the evening and at one point you can even hear them arguing and he is throwing stones at him. Is a chilling audiotape. The jury will hear more that today. Gable Tostee is out on bail so he will have to walk in and out of court everyday.

OK, thank ou. Police have charged a man after
an hours- long standoff after he fled from
a Queensland courthouse. The 27-year-old escaped custody,
evading police, before climbing up on a motel
roof in Mooloolaba. He put him self
in further danger by jumping off the roof as well, it is just fortunate he has
landed correctly and he has been safely
taken back into custody. It took police several hours
to get the man down. Queensland police are searching
for the person responsible for a one-punch attack
which killed a man in Brisbane. Officials say the suspect
got into an argument with Timothy Lang before
the attack on Saturday. The 48-year-old's family
made the decision to turn off his
life support late yesterday. Police say they're getting closer
to tracking down the alleged attacker. Thousands of homes
are still without power, and another person
has been injured as wild weather continues to
bear down on parts of Melbourne. Seven News Reporter
Nathan Templeton joins us from Narre Warren. Nathan, a home
was severely damaged by strong winds overnight?

It was. A late night bathroom break almost cost and his life. The man was in the toilet when tiles from his damaged roof fell down onto his head. He suffered, thankfully only minor injuries and was taken to hospital. It is believed and large gum tree brands had fallen in the previous night on the Sunday night storms. The SES have not had a chance to tidy up yet and the registers to the tiles and brought them down I just highlights the ongoing dangers as the SES continue this cleanup.The cleanup is still being done 48 hours after our one in five year ups. The strike dumps. Lots of trees have come down in the past 48 hours. More than 5000 collapse for the SES. Thankfully the weather will ease which will help them in a tidy up today.

William, Kate and Harry
have taken a spin on the London Eye to mark
World Mental Health Day. Seven News Reporter Ben Lewis
joins me now from London. Ben, all three are very
passionate about the cause.

About a year ago that they sat down with Palace staff and wanted to focus on mental health awareness. When they get together, it is an iconic location.

High above London, the royals were perfectly
positioned to spot Kensington Palace, but their focus was on those
who had joined them in the pod, those who have had
mental health issues, but sought help and treatment. Mental health
is not a dirty word. We all have mental health, like we do physical health,
good or ill. But not seeking help
at those times, it all seems too much

Is a big day for the Duchess of Cambridge, going to the Netherlands for her first ever solid engagements where she will meet the king.

The Dow Jones is up 107 points. To our region yesterday, we had a strong start to the day. The ASX 200 was up eight. The gold prices of US$51. That is after news that OPEC has said they. Production which will push prices up. The Australian dollar is above 76 US cents. 61.5 US District British fence.

Tourist arrivals and departures
have dipped over the past two months. Craig James is at CommSec. Morning. Craig, is there
a reason for the fall?

It is got a lot to do with the Brexit vote. Things will pick up in coming months. One thing that hasn't changed is shown. Johnny continues to remain our largest source of tourists. 1.4 million Chinese came to Australia from the last few months. That is more than a year ago. Indonesia is being challenged for top spots. Indonesia looks like it will be our top tourist destination. 1.2 million Aussies went there in the last 12 months.

Here's Ryan. Carlton has been caught off-guard
by star midfielder Bryce Gibbs. The 27-year-old has requested
a move to Adelaide.

Three years left on his contract and Carlton officials were caught by surprise.

Would you have prefered maybe
to annouce it yourself, or Bryce announce it,
rather than another footy club? I think it would have been
more important to work through the issues with
Bryce first. Carlton midfielder Zac Toohey
is off contract and is set to join Geelong
on a four-year deal. The Western Sydney Wanderers
have once again been punished for bad spectator behaviour. Flares were lit during

after training today. Australia leads their group
but recovery is a concern after Friday's match
in Saudi Arabia.

That certainly is our toughest match so far.Good luck.

Sam Mac's at Parramatta
in Sydney this morning, pumping petrol for a good cause.

A very good cause. Go to soccer rooms, tonight. We're here with cement the burns. I feel like I have known you forever. You we have only been churning for 12 minutes about what you do. What do you do day today?I spent a lot of time supporting my patients, I will visit them on the wards, providing emotional support and psychological support. I a lot of time in the clinics and also coordinating care. Liaising between their GPs, surgeons and colleges.EC people when they are at their most vulnerable. As a hearty switch off after you learned so much about them?It is hard to switch off sometimes but to find ways of managing and techniques so that when you come home at the end of the day, you can switch off and leave their work behind you and enjoy your personal life.We all think it is also what you are doing. That is part of why we're here today. We talking about how we can support your foundation.

The Labor Party
is finally expected

to confirm its position on the same-sex marriage
plebiscite after a party meeting today. It comes after the government
overnight released draft changes to the Marriage Act
in the hope of securing Labor support for the plebiscite. Seven News political reporter
Olivia Leeming joins us from Parliament House. Olivia, what changes
has the Coalition made to the draft bill? Well, they're relatively minor. Sam and Kochie, good morning. Attorney-General George Brandis took these changes
to cabinet last night. So now this bill would not only
legalise same-sex marriage, but it also includes protections
for religious ministers and celebrants who object to it so they wouldn't have to perform
these ceremonies. And same-sex weddings overseas
would be recognised in Australia. Some of the conservative
backbenchers in the Coalition want these changes
to go further - to include protections
for small businesses like wedding cake makers, so they have the right to refuse
service to same-sex couples. So they're likely to air their
views on this when these changes are put to
the coalition party-room today.

The wedding cake makers. It is detailed. Many of these likely to sway at labour?

No they won't - these changes that I mentioned
have been flagged for some time, even though they've only just
been put to cabinet. Labor is expected
to block the plebisicte, when caucus meets later today. Its main concern is around how
a 'no' campaign could impact

Young people who are struggling with their sexuality.

So what this means is that the plebiscite does look set to
be killed off. Without support from Labor
and the Greens, the Government would need
the backing of 9 of the 11 senate
crossbenchers for it to take place. And we already know that
the Nick Xenophon team and others don't support it. In terms of plan B, the government is refusing to
say if it has one. There'll be a lot of pressure
now to have a free vote
in Parliament on the issue.

You wonder if they have a plan B. Coming up this morning.Everything he just said is absolutely false. He won the debate?Scrapping the racing band.

The second presidential debate has been called one of the most brutal in history.

Donald Trump's attacks came
thick and fast as he tried to force
the conversation on from his scandalous comments
about women. Oh, yeah, what about the 15,000. Please allow her to respond, she didn't talk
while you talked. Yes that's true I didn't.
because you have nothing to say. Secretary Clinton, does Mr Trump have the discipline
to be a good leader? No.
I'm shocked to hear that. Seven News US bureau chief
Mike Amor joins us from Saint Louis
Missouri. Mike, this was a very bitter
and personal debate. Who came out on top?

I think it was more like an episode of the Jerry Springer 's show. CNN says Hillary Clinton won the other is a Donald Trump one. I think Clinton did that. After that lead audiotape of his expressly explicit content, we are now getting into landslide territory. We need to see if he gets about adverse debate or not and whether he can start to win back some support within the public and party. The third most powerful person in America, Paul Ryan, said he would no longer defend Ella Trump. He has told Republican members to look after themselves and their own drug and not Donald Trump. That is a huge hit for him. I think it is the Senate elections next year that they do not want to muck up either.A race to the bottom.

Premier Mike Baird will back down on his decision to make
the industry illegal. Seven News reporter
Jessica Dietrich is live from State Parliament. Jess, Mr Baird was dining

The Government's proposed
plebiscite on same-sex marriage is expected to be
shot down today. It's believed Labor will announce
they're not going to support it. Attorney-General George Brandis
made a last-ditch effort to sweeten the deal
for the opposition, by making some draft changes
to the marriage bill. The best way to do it
is to bring the whole community with you, and I am
utterly convinced that you're more likley to do that
by involving the whole community in the act of choice. The draft changes to the bill w ould effectively legalise
gay marriage - but would only be made official
after a plebiscite.

have to pass English tests as part of their training. The Courier Mail reports

They won't have to know their way around either. This is a hot topic. Good morning to you both.

Cath, could it be difficult
to explain where you want to go if the cabbie's
not too good with English?

This is Matt 's. A comfortable lead we are talking of about the fact that we are OK with this. Why would you need to know where you want to go, and conversed with someone putting when you land in a country, let alone put up with that kind of service. The government is arguing that this is not their role. There is competition, so you can pick and choose which service you use, at this is a fundamental basic so that when tourists arrive they can get into a taxi and conversed with the speaker, let alone having great experiences. That is what a great service is about, getting a great driver and saying you will use that service again. This is about people not knowing where they are going, and having the stuff make disgusting caps.So, English should be mandatory?It should be mandatory, you can't have anything but.Taxi companies are complaining about the competition. Should they not have certain standards, even if not required by law?I think the issue with competition is that you don't make people pass a test, you just say to the box in English stop if customers try to talk to you and you can't talk back to them you have a rating out of one out of five and before you know it you are not a driver. Should the customer decide if it is good enough, or should the Gulf them and decide if it is good enough?If you got into a taxi in Queensland and the driver could not speak English which you get out and refused to pay?The first few people who get into a taxi but they can't speaking wish have to put up with that before they start giving them the ratings and then they can't be a driver anymore. The reality is that everybody should speak at appropriate level of English. I just read an article about students from overseas who come here and can't speak English. The tutors don't know what to do with them. The same standards should apply. There is a push this morning to remove chocolates and lollies from supermarket checkout. Accounts are make the Cancer Council believe that removing these items from the checkout would lower childhood obesity. Do you think this will work to make if you as a parent cannot say no to your own or in, you are stuffed.They save me the chocolate frog, by me the red snake, yes super markets put them there so that kids will do that. Any half decent parent should have the power to say no.Should we be hiding the lollies? They do it with cigarettes, should they do it was lollies to?I really hope that my nieces and nephews aren't working big -- on watching because they get whatever they want with me. If you could sell fruit and carrots with little depth, that would be great. It is not going to solve the obesity crisis. We need a better solution than that.Grandparents, aunts and uncles are the worst offenders. They don't have to live with the consequences. Put it on us.As an aunty, I buy my niece and if you believe and then leave my sister to deal with that.Kochie is a grandfather, he does it every day. It's fine. Tom, you can't tell me that your father was a day softy. Did he buy you lollies every time you asked for them to make no he didn't.But he would not bias anything we asked for, he told us to get a job and buy it for ourselves.Can I have a lolly? No way.Thank you to both of you, have a good day. Coming up, Melbourne trashed again by wild weather. Crews are struggling to put power back in Melbourne's own. Plus, dirty debate.

Hello and welcome to Sunrise. Electricity companies
are working to restore power to thousands of homes
in eastern Melbourne after strong winds overnight
caused more widespread damage, injuring a man. Seven News reporter
Nathan Templeton joins us from Narre Warren. Nathan, can you run us through
what happened?

Quite fortunate it was not worse. Two nights ago, during extreme winds, a large branch came down from this country and cause damage to the corner of the house because the SES has been so busy are by last night they had not a chance to fix it. When the winds returned, the branch shifted and not a tile down, and a man who was in the bathroom just after midnight was hit in the head by falling tiles. He was taken to hospital, thankfully his injuries were only minor. It underlines the ongoing danger.

The clean up is still happening 48 hours after
our one in five year storm.

The state emergency service has received more than 5000 calls over the past two nights and somewhere between 15 and 20,000 homes across Victoria are without power, thankfully the weather will clear up-to-date, hopefully helping emergency services as they continue to clean up.

An Australian man jailed in Bali
on drugs charges has told interrogators he used hashish to battle
the effects of cancer. Seven News reporter
Matthew Selson is in Bali. Matt, have any charges been laid?

It will still probably the week before police finish their investigation and charged a man with drug possession. They are still trying to work out who else in the police force and military are involved in the legend drug supply syndicate.Paraded by Indonesian authorities, 48-year-old

man 48-year old Perth man
Guiseppe Serafino and 54-year-old British national
David Fox. In handcuffs and prison jumpsuits they're marched into
Denpasar Police station after hours of interrogations by
Bali's notorioius narcotics unit. Holding up their haul
for photographers. Several black satchels Mr Serafino was arrested
in his home at the weekend. Detectives followed
a communication chain to find David Fox,
a retired war correspondent, now accused of supplying
the drugs.

This case is based
on information there is foreigner with drugs
and police arrest him on October 8, 2016 at his house. He also informed Police
of a friend who could help buy hashish. Police contacted David Matthew
Fox to make a transation before police arrested David
in Samur. Police have arrested
one of their own and are investigating
a member of the military in connection to the case. Mr Serafino says he was using
the hashish to cope with cancer. But, for this, both men could face
up to 20 years in prison.

His friend and co-accused, David Fox, is a former war correspondent who worked in Afghanistan, telling police he began using the drug to treat his poster Matic stress disorder.

A father has died in hospital
after a one-punch attack in south Brisbane. The family of Timothy Lang
made the heartbreaking decision to turn off his
life support late yesterday. The 48-year-old was taken
to Princess Alexandra Hospital with head injuries on Saturday after an alleged argument
on the street. Police say they
are making progress in the hunt for the suspect, who was captured on CCTV
moments after the attack. A Queensland man, who escaped
a courthouse has been chargedafter a
tense three-hour stand off. The 27-year-old ran from
Maroochydore Magistrates Court, evading police, before climbing
up on a motel roof. He put himself in further danger by jumping off the roof as well, it is just fortunate he has
landed correctly and he has been safely taken
back into custody. He'll face court again today. An explosive audio recording
of the final moments of Warriera Wright's life
has been played in court during the murder trial
of Gable Tostee. Sunrise correspondent
Michelle Tapper joins us now. Michelle, what was said
in the recording?

The jury got to hear her and Gable Tostee arguing in the lead up in the lead up to her death. Bailey heard part of it yesterday and will him or today. Prosecution claims Gable Tostee locked her out on his 14th floor balcony, and as she was trying to escape by climbing down, she plunged to her death. They claim that at one point on the audio, Gable Tostee threatens her by saying you are lucky I haven't chucked you off my balcony you got down Psycho. The defence claims you can hear her threatening him, and at one point she threw stones. It is a very chilling audio, they also showed photographs of a re- enactment done with police officers in which you can see feet dangling from a balcony. Shaping up to be an interesting trial at Brisbane Supreme Court, and very unusually, Gable Tostee is actually on bail, unusual for a murder trial, and when he pleaded not guilty, her mother broke down in tears.

Officials have begun to rise -- arrived for a meeting where his first Premier is expected to call off his controversial ban on greyhound racing. It is expected harsher regulation shall be implemented, rather than outlawing the sport altogether. The proposed ban has become a costly decision for the government financially and in popularity.

A drunk driver has lost control
of his car in Sydney's inner west mounting a concrete road barrier
and getting stuck. Police arrived at the scene
at Homebush West just after midnight to find the car with two wheels
up on the barrier and a 28-year-old man
standing nearby. He allegedly recorded a blood
alcohol limit of 0.15 and was later charged
with high range drink driving. He'll appear in court next month. The same-sex marriage plebiscite
is set to fail today, with Labor expected to announce
it's opposing the vote. Seven News political reporter
Olivia Leeming joins us from Parliament House. Olivia, that's despite
the government trying to secure Labor's support with changes
to the Marriage Act? Well, Eddy, Attorney-General
Aeorge Brandis took these draft changes
to cabinet last night.

New bill would not only legalise same-sex marriage but would include projections for religious ministers so that they would not have to perform ceremonies if they objected. Also, same-sex weddings overseas would be recognised. Quite minor changes, labour is expected to block the plebiscite when caucus meets this morning. Penny Wong believes it would cause more harm than good.It is not an abstract debate, an esoteric argument, it is an argument that affects families. Considering key crossbenches like Nick Xenophon do not support the plebiscite, it almost certainly will not go ahead.

The gloves came off at the second
US presidential debate - with Donald Trump trying to shift
the focus from his leaked
recording scandal, to alleged past misdeeds
surrounding the Clintons. Seven News US bureau chief
Mike Amor joins us from
Saint Louis Missouri. Mike, the tactic seems to have
failed for the Republican.

It depends on who you listen to. A CNN poll showed Hillary Clinton one the second debate easily, but plenty of Conservative polls claim Donald Trump one. He certainly did better in the second debate, we knew it would be nasty, perhaps no one realised how much.

No handshake at the start, and that 11-year old sexually
crude tape on everyone's mind. This was locker room talk. It represents exactly who he is. But Donald trump was pointing
his fingers at Bill Clinton. There's never been anybody
in the history of politics in this nation that's been
more abusive to women. The Trump campaign brought three women
who had made sexual accusations against Clinton to the debate, but said it was all about
his opponent. This does not have to do
with Bill Clinton, it has to do with the way
Hillary Clinton shamed and blamed the women
in Bill Clinton's life. Clinton's campaign says she was there to talk
about important matters. Hillary came to this debate
to talk about the issues, to talk about the policies
and plan that she has that are gonna make a difference
in people's lives. With many Republicans
fleeing the Trump ship, the brash billionaire
stayed on the offensive, attacking Clinton's use
of a private email server while Secretary of State. It's just awfully good someone with
the temperament of Donald Trump isn't in charge
of the law in our country. Because you'd be in jail! Clinton said again Trump
is unfit to be president, while Trump kept
dodging her punches, trying over and over to talk
about issues, from ISIS to taxes.

A new NBC poll taken after the sex talk tape was released but before the debate shows Hillary Clinton leads nationally by 11 points, landslide territory. Billy Bush, the entertainment television host also heard in that tape, a cousin of George W Bush, was suspended by NBC for his part in the taped, while Donald Trump was onstage.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge
and Prince Harry have come together to mark
World Mental Health Day. Seven News reporter Ben Lewis
joins me now from London. Ben, it's something the
trio feel very strongly about.

Absolutely. The Duke and Duchess I only just back from Canada, Prince Harry back from Africa and they wanted to do something special to mark world mental health Day, so they took their message of awareness to great heights with a ride on the London eye.

High above London, the royals were perfectly
positioned to spot Kensington Palace, but their focus was on those
who had joined them in the pod, those who have had
mental health issues, but sought help and treatment. Mental health
is not a dirty word. We all have mental health, like we do physical health,
good or ill. But not seeking help
at those times, it all seems too much
or we are depressed or anxious, can impact
the rest of our lives. William, Harry and I feel
it is our duty to do what we can The visit to
the tourist attraction was in aid of
world mental health day. One in four people are affected, and the young royals
are putting their attention towards ensuring people who need
support services can get them. The three of us are coming
to the realisation that more needs to be done
to support those who have been seeking help. Their Heads Together initiative
wants young people to realise it's OK
to talk about mental health, particularly in environments
where the subject is not always openly discussed, like school, sporting clubs
and the military. Too often we think that
mental health problems are something that happen
to other people and not us, but we will all experience
pressure on our mental health at some point during our lives. It's hoped that if the royals can speak about mental health
so openly, others will feel
that they can to.

Tomorrow will be an interesting day to the Duchess, on her first solo overseas engagement, meeting the King of the Netherlands in Rotterdam.We will bring you every moment of that trip. Do we know why she is meeting the king? Why not? The royals just mingle.Because it is her first solo trip, they just had to find a king in Europe, minor European royalty.

Ryan has the sport. The first major surprise
of the AFL trade period involves Carlton star Bryce Gibbs requesting a move
to the Adelaide Crows. Gibbs has three years left
on his contract at the Blues, and Carlton officials
were caught by surprise. Would you have preferred, maybe,
to annouce it yourself? Or Bryce announce it,
rather than another footy club? I think it would have been
more important to work through the issues
with Bryce first. Carlton midfielder Zac Toohey
is off contract and is set to join Geelong
on a four-year deal. The Western Sydney Wanderers
have once again been punished for bad specataror behaviour. Flares were lit
during the Sydney Derby, so the threat of a three point
deduction has been extended until the end
of the A-League season. If flares are lit again, the Wanderers
will lose competition points. In Melbourne, the Socceroos
are expected to keep Tim Cahill on the bench for tonight's World
Cup qualifier against Japan. He can be damaging
to any opponent, as he has been already
in this qualifying campaign. Australia leads their group,
but recovery is a concern after Friday's match
in Saudi Arabia. Sam Mac's at Parramatta in Sydney

For a good cause, we are here supporting breast cancer awareness month, an important cause for the McGrath foundation, Glenn McGrath will join us in half an hour to update us.

The second presidential debate
is being called one of the most brutal exchanges
in American politics. Donald Trump was on the attack
again as he tried to move on from the recordings of scandalous
comments he made about women. The Republican lashed out
at Hillary Clinton and her husband,
the former president. Bill Clinton was abusive
to women, Hillary Clinton
attacked those same women. Attacked them viciously,
four of them are here tonight. It's just awfully good that someone with
the temperament of Donald Trump is not in charge of the law
in our country. Because you'd be in jail. Foreign Editor
Dr Keith Suter joins me. Good morning.

Is to make our political leaders look like superstars.It is appalling, just a circus. The winner, the indications are Clinton, although Trump did not do as badly as some feared. Almost a draw.No talk of policies, just slagging? Mrs Clinton, to her credit, came across as presidential and calm, despite the provocation from Donald Trump, and she did deal with some policy items like Syria.Where she said she would stand up to the Russians?One reason she is criticised by left-wing Democrats is they are worried she will drag America into a war when a lot of Americans are exhausted by war. Donald Trump has admitted he don't know what he will do.I have always said this will be a landslide against Trump, the polls are starting to indicate that. Only three weeks away from the election, how can he come back?He can't. But it is interesting, he speaks to his base, a small group of determined people, where is Mrs Clinton's problem is that a lot of people don't have much enthusiasm for her. And if it is snowing on the day, they won't remember, remember it is a Tuesday, they would give up work to vote. Sam, we are supposedlySam, we are supposedly talking about democracy.

New South Wales Coalition MPs
have started gathering in Sydney ahead of a meeting
that's expected to lft the state's ban
on greyhound racing. Widespread condemnation
of the ban has forced the hand
of Premier Mike Baird, despite repeated claims,
he would stand by the decision. The new legislation will include
tough penalties for anyone found to be
mistreating their greyhounds. An announcement is expected following this morning's
partyroom meeting. Joining me for more, Georgie
Stewart of the Humane Society. Georgie, good morning. Have you had discussions with
the Premier, or his office, about repealing the ban?

We have. We spoke to his office yesterday, and they reassured us that there was no indication of any backflip that would be occurring. They said that the reversal was news of a possible reversal was media speculation, and that there was going to be a meeting with the National's last night and then with the coalition this morning.That is not our advice, it is that the Premier will overturn the ban today. You think is being honest?Until Mike Baird himself makes an announcement, we remain on that and that no reversal will take place, so we will wait to hear what he says on that.If the ban is overturned, or watered down, would you be satisfied by tough penalties for anyone found to be treating dogs crawls? Remember, it was only a few bad apples.That's right. We certainly wouldn't be happy with that, snapper. The fact that the independent enquiry, which was very comprehensive and involved more than 13 months of consultation with industry and a number of groups, showed that there was extensive evidence of animal cruelty, they had been going on prolonged time, the fact remains, and they have had a number of opportunities to reform over the years, and unfortunately, that has never in successful. Just yesterday, there was another New South Wales trainer charged with using live bait to train his dogs, and he will face court today. There is no way to end it without a complete end.Thank you to your time.Brisbane family has endured a terrifying ordeal while

time.Brisbane family has endured a
terrifying ordeal while driving at night, clearly worried, a camera is rolling as they try to overtake, and then the truck does this.

Then, another terrifying moment as they try to pass again, only to find themselves boxed in at high speed.They have boxed Arsene! You need to slow down!

They eventually pull over on a dirt road, where they waited for several hours before heading home.

road, where they waited for several
hours before heading home. Cloete on Cassie with the two women whose voices you could hear. They join me now. Good morning, what was it like driving next to these trucks with your little kids in the car and your people ages, as well yes?Yes I am. She is fully licensed, but we just swapped over when this happened. Terrifying.It was horrible. Like, of all places, of all times, they were travelling back from New South Wales, a small family, and of course they thought they would pay And mouse with us. Absolutely disgusting and terrifying.Give us the lead up with this. You are driving along normally, had not had any encounters with the trucks further back? You were tailing one of the trucks so you wouldn't hit any kangaroos for quite a while, which is sensible, you kept your distance with your beams on low, there was nothing annoying in your driving, not to excuse what they did, but you are driving along happily when it happened?Of course. We just swapped over every two or three hours, as they say to do my so I finished my driving, my sister was about to start and we started to come up to speed limit, so we were always told to follow a truck at that time at night so you don't hit kangaroos.Have you called the company? What did they say?First thing yesterday morning I called them and they said there are two sides to every story. I don't understand what reason he could have for running a soft the road. Before we started filming, it happened twice. We tried to overtake on the inside in the overtaking lane and he tried running a soft to a dirt patch. We didn't feel safe to do it again, we went on the outside. Yet no reason to do it, and you can see Nvidia he tried to runners of the right.We might follow it up ourselves and see if we can get to the bottom of it for you and help you out. Ladies, thank you.

Drones could be the answer
to preventing shark attacks around the country. A three-month trial in Perth
over summer will test whether the technology
can spot shark activity. The machines will be able to
stream live pictures of sharks, schools of fish
and other dangers. There have been 15 shark attacks
around Australia this year. Shark Expert Michael Brown from
Surfwatch Australia joins me. Good morning Michael. This is not the first trial, New South Wales
is also testing drones. How can drones help save lives?

You think they will be reliable?I definitely do. After years of ill- conceived concepts and barbaric solutions to the problem, we are finally on the right track. Drones are not only inexpensive, but they give us a chance to get out of the water and see exactly what is going on. If we look at the bigger picture, it is not until we have many drones working at many beaches that we can start to put together a snapshot of exactly what is going on. We can see baitfish, the Wales, the feeding activities, and by using all of this information we can start to put together a plan that will provide real protection for swimmers just by educating them as to the dangers.The argument is always, you go into the ocean, you go to their home, there will always be sharks in the ocean, and unfortunately there are a lot in Australia, is this the role for shark repellent on servers or swimmers?

I think drones is the best step. When we look at shark repellent, if you are surfing, not a bad idea, but you certainly cannot go swimming through the middle of the flags trailing an electrode behind you. What happens if you hit a pregnant woman or someone with a pacemaker? I don't think that is the answer. All of these nets still have a horrifically barbaric effect on wildlife, and even the sharks, and with drones, we have the ability to get out there, it is cheap, we can see what is going on, I think we are on the right track. Still to come, canstill to come, $10,000 cash call, plus.

The simple test that could save
you money on your home loan. It's awfully good someone with the temperament
of Donald Trump is not in charge of the law
in this country. Becuase you'd be in jail. Dirty debate. Who won the nasty brawl between
Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton? Then, Trump's Aussie connection. The Sunrise reporter
and her bizarre encounter with the billionaire. Also, sweaty, shirtless,
and on show. Justin Bieber gets waxed. 'The Bodyguard, the musical'.
Yes, it's real and it's coming. And movies, music,

More on our breaking news out of Sydney.

Cabinet ministers
have begun arriving to News South Wales Parliament, ahead of their meeting
with Premier Mike Baird over as greyhound breeders, trainers and owners in NSW are waiting for confirmation
Premier Mike Baird will back down on his decision
to make the industry illegal. Seven News reporter
Jessica Dietrich is live from State Parliament. Jess, is he likely to confirm?

Backlash and questions from voters may have prompted him to flip on this issue. It will affect 10 to thousands of people. Owners and beaters wait with baited breath to hear the decision. Ministers from both sides of Parliament have arrived ahead of a meeting with the Premier. There are talks that they will give the industry one more chance. There will be policies to better monitor the treatment of greater greyhounds as well as better treatment. We will give you updates.

Another man has been injured as wild weather
continues to strike Victoria. Strong winds brought
down a branch which crashed through the roof
of a Narre Warren home. A man inside was taken
to hospital with non-life threatening
injuries. Absolutely obliterated the tiles
and caused some internal damage. Crews are also working
to restore power to more than 20,000 homes
which are still affected following the weekend storm. An Australian man jailed in Bali
on drugs charges has told interrogators
he used hashish to battle the effects of cancer. Giuseppe Serafino has faced
an intense night questioning but is yet to be charged. British national David Fox is accused of supplying
the drugs. Both men were paraded in front
of the cameras overnight. Police also showed off
their haul of evidence. The men are facing
up to 20 years behind bars. The jury in the trial
of accused murderer Gable Tostee is expected to hear
more audio recordings of the moments before
Warriena Wright plunged to her death
from a Gold Coast balcony. The Crown alleges the recordings shown at the beginning
of the trial show the 30-year-old
becoming increasingly aggressive. Mr Tostee pleaded not guilty
at yesterday's hearing his barrister suggesting
Ms Wright was acting erratically herself. Today the court will hear further
evidence from police. Queensland police are searching
for the person responsible for a one punch attack which
killed a man in Brisbane. Officials say the suspect
got into an argument with Timothy Lang
before the attack on Saturday. The 48-year-old's family
made the decision to turn off his life support
late yesterday. Police say they're getting closer to tracking down
the alleged attacker. Hillary Clinton has strengthened
her lead over Donald Trump following yesterday's debate. New polling shows her lead
has grown to 11 points which is nearing
landslide territory. The gloves were off at the debate with both candidates not pulling
any punches against each other. It's just awfully good someone with the temperament
of Donald Trump isn't in charge of the law
in our country. Because you'd be in jail! Trump is also losing support
from within his own party with Republicans continuing
to speak out against him. William, Kate and Harry have
taken a ride on the London Eye to mark World Mental Health Day. They rode with guests who have
dealt with mental health problems and those who supported them. All three royals spoke
passionately about the issue encouraging people
to talk to one another. Too often we think that mental health problems
are something that happen to other people and not us but we will all experience
pressure on our mental health at some point during our lives. Tomorrow, Kate will head off
on her first ever solo engagement to the Netherlands.

You are asking why but she was supposed to go to Malta but had severe morning sickness when she was pregnant with Charlotte and was delayed. They were chosen the nearest country she could visit that is not too far away from the family.

Ryan has the sport. Richmond star Brett Deledio
has almost certainly played his last game
for the Tigers. The 29-year-old
is keen to join Geelong but there are two major hurdles. Deledio has a year left
on his big contract and the Cats don't have
the salary cap space. Brett's expressed his interest
too in Geelong. But we wouldn't
be letting Brett go for nothing. That's for sure. The Cats are trying to off-load
Steven Motlop but Richmond
is no longer interested. Johnathan Thurston would like
to see the NRL expanded, and believes Perth is ready
for a team. In camp with the Kangaroos,
JT also revealed his representative days
are far from over. I love representing my country,
and they'll pretty much have to kick me off this team. Cooper Cronk is still scarred
after Melbourne's Grand Final loss to Cronulla. I've been hiding away,
in my room for a while, trying not to read any papers
and trying to forget what happened. Australia faces New Zealand
on Saturday in Perth.

I like the idea of a Perth team. You can make Natalie the permanent ticketholder.Each weekend in Perth. I have perplexed by their outfits. This very badly. It is hurting my eyes.It is a bit busy. Still green and gold.A lot of grey.Would you call it grey?Could be the eucalypt coming through?Couldn't be. Even something new.

Sam Mac's at Parramatta in Sydney
as he brings us today's weather.

The morning everyone. We have the great cricketing legend, and McGrath. Let's get an update on how your foundation is going. We have 100 and tennis is now right across this great country and their support on the 47,000 families. In those numbers most feel very proud. I think it is that Australia is proud of. It is one of the things that is now part of the culture which you should be proud of. How do these nurses help to communities. Their different diagnosis right to the whole journey. The information and support they provide not only for them but the family makes the journey a little bit easier. They have to listen to the doctors, the specialists, to know where you are and I know firsthand the difference they make. They had that with one of our nurses and the positive difference made in allies incredible.A lot of support around the country as well.BP have been a big supporter for the last four years. Over $1 million. Activities breast cancer awareness month. They are sending some portions of profits from the pumps and products inside to buy.Supporter anywhere you can.

Already Oscar buzz about that film. So much to look forward to.

It appears Hillary Clinton
has come out on top after the second
presidential debate. It's being called one of the most
hostile and brutal exchanges in American politics. Seven News US Bureau Chief
Mike Amor is in Saint Louis. Mike, Donald Trump tried
to deflect attention from his latest scandal
by creating a new one? That's right, just hours
before the debate, Donald Trump went on
the attack again, holding a news conference
with women

He would come out swinging but he chose the nuclear options. He brought out Hillary's husband accused victims.

It all started with a nod
and no hand shake. I want us to heal our country
and bring it together. Make America great again. Inspirational introductions
done, it was straight into
Trump's biggest scandal yet - his vulgar remarks about women
in a decade-old video. Yes, I'm very embarrassed,
I hate it, but it's locker room talk
and it's one of those things. I will knock
the hell out of ISIS. Bill Clinton was abusive
to women, Hillary Clinton attacked
those same women. Attacked them viciously,
four of them are here tonight. But Trump's diversion
didn't work. You did not actually kiss women
without consent or grope women without consent? I have great respect for women. Nobody has more respect
for women than I do. Hillary Clinton didn't get off
easy either. The thing that you should be
apologizing for are the 33,000 emails
that you deleted and that you acid washed. If I win I am going to instruct
my Attorney General to get a special prosecutor
to look into your situation, because there has never been
so many lies, so much deception. It's just awfully good that
someone with the temperament of Donald Trump is not in charge
of the law in our country. Because you'd be in jail. Throughout the 90 minute debate, the pressure on Trump
never eased. It hasn't been finished at all. Kim has a question. It's nice to know, one on three. When she goes a minute over,
you don't stop her. It's really very interesting Oh yeah what about the 15,000. Please allow her to respond, she
didn't talk while you talked. Yes that's true I didn't. because you have nothing to say. Secretary Clinton, does Mr Trump
have the discipline to be a good leader? No. I'm shocked to hear that. (LAUGHTER) The presidential candidates
were asked how they'd deal with growing Islamophobia
and terrorism. You can look at the propaganda
on a lot of the terrorist sites and what Donald Trump says
about Muslims is used to recruit fighters. People are coming in
to our country, like we have no idea who they
are, where they are from, what their feelings about
our country is. The way they got out of Iraq,
the vacuum they've left, that's why ISIS formed
in the first place. They started in that little area and now they're in 32 different
nations, Hillary. Congratulations, great job. The debate also delved
into tax. Hillary Clinton is raising your
taxes folks, look at me, she's raising your takes
really high. And what that's going to do
is a disaster for the country. It is sort of amusing to hear somebody who hasn't paid
federal income taxes in maybe 20 years talking about
what he's going to do. But I'll tell you what he's
going to do, his plan will give the wealthy
and corporations the biggest tax cuts
they've ever had. After a heated 90 minutes
the debate ended with this curly question. What is one positive thing you
respect in one another? I respect his children. His children are incredibly able
and devoted and I think that says a lot
about Donald. I do disagree with her judgment
and in many cases, but she does fight hard and she
doesn't quit and she doesn't give up
and I consider that to be a very good trait. And finally, a handshake.

A new poll taken after the sex talk tape was released and before this debate shows that she has increased her lead nationally to 11 points. It is almost landslide territory. It's interesting to see if Donald Trump can pull those number Mac back after the debate. The third debate is on October 20 in Las Vegas. You can imagine that Las Vegas is a fitting backdrop. That is when all those price fights are held.Put them at the MGM Grand and let them Duke it out. It's such a race to a bottom. I'm not enjoying this.

Donald Trump's view of women
could turn out to be his undoing in this US Presidential
election. He's been branded sexist
and a misogynist. And these labels
date back many years. In 2004, our Sunrise reporter
Michelle Tapper was granted an interview
with the real estate tycoon. It was just after Jennifer
Hawkins won Miss Universe.

Trombones. -- Which Donald Trump owns.

Well, many people thought I
bought the Miss Universe pageant for the women, becuase they're the most
beautiful women in the world, and I like beautiful women,
there's no question about it. I like women generally. But actually it's turned out
to be a great business deal. What do you like most,
women or money? Well, I always like women
more than money, 'cause money is sometimes
a lot less complex than women. But it's what was said off camera
that was most shocking. Michelle, what happened?

Before I could get the interview in John Tower Mike Trump Tower. I was going to be originally with Jennifer Hawkins but she had responsibilities. I had to do the interview alone. I spoke to his secretary and I was asked why looked like. He only likes to speak to pretty ladies. I said I am just a bit few years older than Jennifer, I am blonde and I used to be a cheerleader. She said that it would probably work. The interview was granted and a few days later I went to John Tower to have a chat with them. What did he say about for Hawkins on camera and a camera. When he was not talking about himself and he did talk about himself a lot, he was incredibly vein. He was absolutely gushing about Jennifer. Completely infatuated with her.She was coming her hair. I wish I had her like she did. It was so incredible, the scene how she had her neck and her beautiful face and I said, follow that woman. This is before the pageant.It sounds like you're in love with her?I think is great. I could be in love with her, but I am in love with somebody else.Some absentee cringeworthy comments from him. I was wanting to ask him about his hair, when he arrived, he was so full of himself and he walked into the room two hours late and said to everyone in the room? How do I looked? They told him it looks fabulous. Everybody was building up his ego for the make up artist worked on the orange glow that he had on. It is interesting that one of the first comments made to Howard Stern was a likely backstage at those pageants so he could perve on the girls when he was getting dressed.None of this surprises me. He created the pattern, there was a reason why. Very interesting. Thank you for digging into your old tapes. And you were cheerleader? A port Adelaide cheerleader.Thanks.This is when Michelle is really young.

Mary Clayton works out
five times a week, and is about to represent
her home state of Queensland in bodybuilding. After 30 years
away from competition, the workout bug has struck
again. And Mary Clayton joins us now. Mary Clayton works out
five times a week, and is about to represent
her home state of Queensland in bodybuilding. After 30 years
away from competition, the workout bug has struck
again. I want to be flexible,
don't want to look old, I don't want to be hunched over, I'd like to have
a straight back, and so far it's working. Despite pumping iron
for almost four decades, something keeps
bringing her back. Since I was 30-something, and I've been going to the gym
consistently since then, so it's not a chore to me,
it's a lifestyle, I guess. Last month, she scored
the Ms Figure Master title for over-60s, and she's got no plans
of stopping there. Oh, massive inspiration. I think there's a lot of people
that come through that timeslot that see the way she trains
and how often. She never misses a session. She's always here. Her secret is simple - discipline, determination
and dedication combined, and clean eating. So, not eating takeway,
processed food. That's the big thing. For the 70-year-old, footwear
is her biggest challenge. I don't wear high heels, and that was the hardest part
of the whole thing. And I didn't fall,
so that was a big thing.

Good on you. What do the people working out next you think? Are they intimidated?I don't think so. There know how old I am now, don't they?We gave away your secret. Sorry. You should be very proud. What do you do after the competition? Do you work out in the gym for the rest of your life?I hope so. It is becomes routine. It is just what I do. It becomes a habit. They say it takes 21 days for a habit to form but this has been 21 years.It is fantastic. You are an inspiration. We will keep watching.

It's one of the biggest
pressures facing homeowners - paying off the mortgage. But there are ways to negotiate
a better home loan deal. Shaun White
has been crunching the numbers.

You can put money
back into your pocket. How?
By knowing your credit score. Would you believe
only 11 % of Austrlaians have actually checked
what their score is? # Sorry, I 'aint got no money, "Sorry, I 'aint got no money, lyrics from a song,
but a bit of truth especially if you have got
a home loan deal that is putting a dent
in your bank balance. The first tip is knowledge. You need to know
where you stand. Accessing your credit score
is pretty simple. Log on to get
getcreditscore.com.au and you will have your
financial identity in minutes. Australians owe about $32 billion
on credit cards. At about $4300 per cardhoder. If you have a good credit score, what you are is a low risk and
reliable customer to the banks. You are actually valuable
and they will work hard to have your business. Even if you don't, you can
improve your credit score by making payments on time
and once it is in good health it is time to re-evaluate. You need to ask. Research shows that only 16%
of Australians negotiate a better rate
on the home loan. Ask for a better deal,
and continue to ask for that deal and talk to the right person
within the organisation to unlock the savings for you. It seems older Australia's
are more confident about asking a better deal. Those aged 50 plus were
the most likely to negotiate. The key behind the confidence? Research the market. Understand the offers. Understand the rates out there,
and importantly, make sure you research
the product you are actually going
to apply for. It is the same
for personal loans. Only 6% of Australians admitted
to asking financial institutions to reduce the interest rate
for a personal loan. You should follow the process,

And where you stand and asked for a better deal.

It's news time now with Eddy. More on our breaking news
out of Sydney, where cabinet ministers have sat
for a meeting on greyhound racing in NSW Parliament. Seven News reporter
Jessica Dietrich is live from State Parliament. Jess, are we closer
to seeing a backflip?

All signs point that way. We know that the deputy premier has already met with the Greyhound industry leaders as well as the head of RSPCA to discuss a raft of changes to the industry. It appears they are looking out at the end of the day. It seems they will be discussing how Premier's decision on this issue has forced their hand. He has said that he will not back down. He is locked in a cabinet meeting this morning with ministers from both sides of Parliament discussing this legislation. Understand he's going to tell that he was to reverse that legislation and instead give the industry one final chance to clean up its act and stop animal cruelty practices. A raft of new changes would involve better monitoring of these animals including a plan for the dogs are retired as well as controlled breathing. But see what happens when these ministers emerge from this cabinet meeting. We'll bring you any further updates throughout the show.

A man is lucky to be alive after
being hit by a flying roof tile, as wild winds continue
in eastern Melbourne. Sunrise correspondent
Nathan Templeton joins us from Narre Warren. Nathan, is the man injured?

Fortunately only minor injuries. This could have cost him his life. Two nights ago, a large branch in this big gum tree in the backyard came down and landed on the corner of the house, was quite a bit of damage. Because the SES had been so busy, they had not had a chance to come here and patch it up. When the winds picked up again last night, it shifted that branch which distorts some tiles and they fell through the ceiling and hit the man while he was in the bathroom. Thankfully, it only grazed the side of his head. He was taken to hospital and likely he is OK. Absolutely destroy the tiles and coarse internal damage. Cleanup is still done 48 hours after. It was a one in five year storm.At last count, 15,000 homes are still without power in Victoria. The SES has more than 5000 callouts. When the two dozen trees have come down. A little rain coming down now but the weather should ease.

An Australian man jailed in Bali
on drugs charges has been paraded
in front of the media after an intense
night of questioning. Seven News reporter
Matthew Selson is in Bali - Matt, he's admitted
taking the drugs?

He has been cooperative. He has admitted that he used hashish are being diagnosed with cancer and worked with a friend. Paraded by authorities. In handcuffs and present jumpsuits, they were much into the police station after hours of integration is by the notorious Michael Essien are. Holding up their hole for photographers. Mr Serafina was erected in his home on the weekend. They followed a communication chain to find David Fox, a retired war correspondence, accused of supplying the drugs. This case is based on information there was a foreigner with drugs and they arrested him at his house. They also involve the police and a friend who helped by the drugs. The meter transaction before police arrested David. Police have arrested a member of the military in relation to the case. He says he was using hashish to cope with cancer. Both make face up to 20 years in prison. If found guilty, both men claim they were using the drugs for health.That could provide leniency in sentencing.

Police have charged a man
after a hours-long standoff after he fled
from a Queensland courthouse. The 27-year-old escaped custody,
evading police, before climbing up
on a motel roof in Mooloolaba. He put himself in further danger
by jumping off the roof as well, it is just fortunate
he has landed correctly and he has been safely
taken back into custody. One officer suffered a cut
to the head during the standoff. The suspect will face court
again today. If found guilty, the fact that
both men claim Queensland police are searching
for the person responsible for a one punch attack
which killed a man in Brisbane. Officials say the suspect
got into an argument with Timothy Lang
before the attack on Saturday. The 48-year-old's family made the decision to turn off
his life support late yesterday. Police say they're getting closer to tracking down
the alleged attacker. A Brisbane court
has heard allegations of arguments and violence between Gable Tostee and the
woman he is accused of murdering. Sunrise Correspondent
Michelle Tapper joins us now - Michelle, what's expected
to happen in court today?

The jury will hear more of that audio recording which was taped on his mobile phone. Police found in his father's car. It is in 199 minute long recording and the jury were played and edited version. The prosecution claims that Gable Tostee locked her on the balcony 14 stories high and as she tried to escape down a mushy plunged to her death. Police allege she did so because she was becoming abusive and throwing stones. The prosecution also claims that in this recording, at one point, he threatens her saying: A very dramatic audio recording. Worrying for her family. Friends sitting in court yesterday and as he pleaded not Lieutenant, her mother wrote down in tears. Very unusual in this murder trial, Gable Tostee is out on bail and Denise to walk in and out the front door see every morning.

A drunk driver has had an
unfortunate parking incident in Sydney's inner west
when his car became mounted on a concrete road barrier
and got stuck. Police arrived at the scene
at Homebush West just after midnight,
to find the car with two wheels up
on the barrier, and a 28-year-old man
standing nearby. He allegedly recorded a blood
alcohol limit of 0.15 - and was later charged with
high-range drink driving. He'll appear in court next month.

Same-sex marriage will dominate
debate in Canberra today,

with Labor finally expected
to oppose a plebiscite. Seven News political reporter
Olivia Leeming joins us from Parliament House. Olivia,
that's despite the government releasing draft changes
to the Marriage Act in the hope
of securing Labor support?

Attorney general George Brandis will take these changes to colleagues in the party room today. These changes were not only legalise same-sex marriage provide protections for ministers who object to it so they would have to perform ceremonies. When his overseas would be recognised here. Minor changes. The Coalition is determined to appeal this decision with a plebiscite.Today is the moment it of truth for the strain Labor Party. Today is the day we find out last whether they are serious about their commitment to marriage equality. Or whether they were just playing a political game all along.We understand labour will decide to block the plebiscite when it meets in just over an hour's time. The bill is set to be killed. Labour proposes a free vote in Parliament instead.

Donald Trump's attacks on
Hillary Clinton at yesterday's debate weren't strong enough
for him to win back any support following the leaked tape scandal
against him. Seven News US bureau chief
Mike Amor joins us from Saint Louis, Missouri. Mike, more people within
the Republican party are stepping out against Trump?

His own colleagues were not impressed by his performance. Paul Ryan, Speaker of the House, third most powerful man in America had a meeting with Republican congressmen this morning and told them to look after their own jobs and they bring a lot to defend Donald Trump. On a mission that they think Hillary Clinton will win this election. Despite that bitter debate performance last night. This incredible threat made by Donald Trump towards Hillary Clinton.

It's just awfully good someone with the temperament
of Donald Trump isn't in charge
of the law in our country. Because you'd be in jail.

A lot of political commentators say that kind of language belongs to Third World dictators when talking about jailing a political opponent. Donald Trump said today it was just a quick. A poll run before the sex talk tape the track after the tape and before the debate says she is had by 11 points.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge
and Prince Harry have spoken out on World Mental Health Day, urging people to seek help
and for family and friends to recognise those in need. Seven News Reporter Ben Lewis
joins me now from London. Ben, they marked the day on top
of the London eye.

They did. A beautiful day looking out to Windsor Castle. They have been focusing for quite some time on mental health. We know the three of them get together in an iconic location.

High above London, the royals were perfectly
positioned to spot Kensington Palace, but their focus was on those
who had joined them in the pod, those who have had
mental health issues, but sought help and treatment. Mental health
is not a dirty word. We all have mental health, like we do physical health,
good or ill. But not seeking help
at those times, it all seems too much
or we are depressed or anxious, can impact
the rest of our lives. The visit to
the tourist attraction was in aid of
world mental health day. One in four people are affected, and the young royals
are putting their attention towards ensuring people who need
support services can get them. The three of us are coming
to the realisation that more needs to be done
to support those who have been seeking help. Their Heads Together initiative
wants young people to realise it's OK
to talk about mental health, particularly in environments
where the subject is not always openly discussed, like school, sporting clubs
and the military. Too often we think that
mental health problems are something that happen
to other people and not us, but we will all experience
pressure on our mental health at some point during our lives. It's hoped that if the royals can speak about mental health
so openly, others will feel
that they can to.

Duchess of Cambridge is off to the Netherlands for her first overseas following agent. She is going to meet the king and was invited. She will also talk to mental health workers there to continue the topic. Perhaps she's a secret undercover Brexit and evoke idiot. -- Negotiator.To spark of these matters, that is a new Kate Spade dress. $415,000. The £415. The total for her Canada trip was $415,000. She is wearing her old wedges?I brought them when she wore them.She has worn the same dress multiple times. They responsibility. Just closer to becoming the queen? The more ways you get out of the dress, the more you spend on it. For my logic.We go back to talking about the Bodyguard?That's coming up and so is the sport. Save us with some sport.

The first major shock
of the AFL trade period involves Carlton star Bryce Gibbs requesting a move
to the Adelaide Crows. Gibbs has three years left
on his contract at the Blues, and Carlton officials
were caught by surprise. Would you have prefered maybe
to annouce it yourself, or Bryce announce it,
rather than another footy club? I think it would have
been more important to work through
the issues with Bryce first. Carlton midfielder Zac Toohey
is off contract and is set to join Geelong
on a four-year deal. The Western Sydney Wanderers
have once again been punished for bad specatator behaviour. Flares were lit
during the Sydney Derby, so the threat of
a three point deduction has been extended until
the end of the A-League season. If flares are lit again, the Wanderers
will lose competition points. In Melbourne, the Socceroos
are expected to keep Tim Cahill on the bench for tonight's World
Cup qualifier against Japan. He can be damaging
to any opponent, as he has been already
in this qualifying campaign. Australia leads their group,
but recovery is a concern after Friday's match
in Saudi Arabia. Aussie Tyler Wright,
has to wait another day before hopefully securing
her maiden world title. The 22-year-old is in the
semi-finals in France and if she wins the event,
she'll clinch the World Surf League. Otherwise the title race
will be decided in the final event in Hawaii. Now to today's weather,
and Sam Mac is at Parramatta in Sydney pumping petrol
for a good cause,

Good morning. An important cause the McGrath foundation. Big support here this morning. Right around the country. We have Glenn McGrath and Sam one of the nurses. You are missing you recognise a lot around the place but sometimes you get it wrong?I was up in Brisbane City the maul and I thought I could see this to be becoming over. I thought they would ask for a photo. They came over and asked me and I said yes, the bus and the camera is it OK and to the pressure of them and wanted. A couple of American tourists and they put me in my box. Sometimes I get refused for Gilly a lot. This day, you and Gilchrist? He gets confused for me. Not sure what the similarity is.People excited to meet him as they fall off for fuel. Sam, I think you can expend my distances are important? For the family going to breast cancer, to have Sam here, same as a newest nurse in Bankstown and Liverpool, every step of the way allows the woman or the man to be a normal part of the family, to know what is coming up, to have someone to talk to it just makes the journey so much better and the outcome so much better. Just incredible people. The foundation is all about nurses and the support they can provide. Very proud were nurses and Sam as well. The chic weather around Australia.

Before we head

Before we head back, you will be interviewing Len for a big production and a local ticket over. He would do a 22nd interview to get warmed up but the twist is, it has to be cricket related.I hear that you are rubbish at bowling but I hear that you are a good actor. What is your batting average?When I was younger, this said that was the case for my average body and of my career was about 6.5 or seven which is not bad that's not many people who can triple their average. This support in the McGrath foundation in Parramatta. One more cross to go from BP if you want to come by, I have fuel cards to give away.

The Tasmanian Tiger
is said to be extinct, but 80 years since the last known
tiger died in captivity, Thylacine researchers believe
one of Australia's most fabled species is not just
surviving, but thriving. And they can be found in several
states of Australia. An increased number of sightings
across Tasmania, Victoria, and South Australia, may be a
sign that their numbers are starting to grow, and proof of existence
may not be far away.

Murray McAllister has been
searching for the Tasmanian Tiger for the last 15 years, and joins
us live from the Melbourne. Murray, why are you convinced the
Tasmanian Tiger still exists?

I am getting a lot of sighting reports coming in, I have had a own sightings, I have heard them, chased them, the cameras pick up snippets You chased a tiger? Absolutely. That's what you do when you're trying to find them.I do want to be cynical, but why don't you have any good vision or photographs?That is it at its best. The trouble is that these animals are so sensitive. That is why we only get it all snippets here and there. It is either the infrared low, the sound of the camera starting up stop every Australian animal wants to get their photo taken, even the deer and foxes and cats, they are all happy to get their photos taken, but Mr elusive does not want to do that.Be vigilant, stay on the trail. This is great news. Good luck with that. Good luck, Murray. That was a fox in the last one.

Still to come - breaking news
on the controversial ban

Woolworths World Explorers
have arrived and where better to collect all 56 flip-cards than in the Activity
and Collector's Album? Woolworths World Explorers. That's for you.
Ohh! That's why I pick Woolies.

It's news time now with Eddy. We're just a few hours away
from finding out whether New South Wales Premier
Mike Baird will backflip on his controversial decision
to ban greyhound racing. Cabinet ministers have begun
meeting to confirm the reversal on the proposed law. An official announcement is
expected at lunch time. New rules on the sport are also
expected to be announced with harsher regulations
to prevent animal cruelty.

More audio recordings from accused murderer,
Gable Tostee's phone, are expected to be heard
as the trial continues in Brisbane today. Tostee pleaded not guilty
to killing Ms Wright, who fell from his
Gold Coast balcony in 2014. Yesterday, the court heard
an explosive recording of an altercation between the
pair before Ms Wright's death. The prosecution alleges
30-year-old Tostee threatened
and intimidated Warriena, but the defence says she had
become agressive towards him. The killer of New South Wales
school teacher Stephanie Scott will be sentenced today. Vincent Stanford has admitted to
murdering the 26 year old in April of last year and will
discover his fate at Griffith's supreme court this morning. He faces a maximum penalty of
life in prison. Stanford's identical twin brother
Marcus has already served his sentence for being an accessory
after the fact in the murder and has been released. Queensland police are searching
for the person responsible for a one punch attack
which killed a man in Brisbane. Officials say the suspect got
into an argument with Timothy Lang before
the attack on Saturday. The 48-year-old's family made the
decision to turn off his life support late yesterday. Police say they're getting closer
to tracking down the alleged attacker. An Australian man jailed in Bali
on drugs charges is hoping he'll be shown leniency
if found guilty because of his medical condition. Guiseppe Serafino
has told interrogators he was using the hashish
to cope with cancer. British national, David Fox, who's accused
of supplying the drugs, says he was using
to cope with PTSD.

Both men were paraded in front of the media overnight. They face up to 20 years a high bars.

Thousands of homes remain
without power in east Melbourne, following this weekend's
severe storm. Strong winds overnight have
knocked down more 450 power lines causing widespread damage.

A man was rushed to hospital after a branch crashed through a corner of his house.

Absolutely obliterated the tiles
and caused some internal damage.

More than 450 power lines will back down. Electricity is trained to be restored to more than 15,000 homes.

The Coalition says Labor
is facing a "moment of truth" today when the party
finally reveals its decision on the same-sex marriage
plebiscite. The opposition
is expected to oppose the vote meaning the legilsation
has no chance of being carried. That's despite the government
releasing draft changes to the Marriage Act in the hope
of securing Labor support. They include protections
for religious ministers who object to peforming
same-sex marriage ceremonies.

This is a bit bizarre.

Almost 200 competitors have
fought it out in the UK vying for the title
of King and Queen Conker. The game involves swinging
a large seed of the horse chestnut tree
on a string trying to smash
the opponent's conker without twisting the laces. It was created in 1965
by a group of fishermen. Yeah, it's amazing. It doesn't feel real
because you come to have a laugh with your friends and family
but to actually get a crown and get a trophy. It's amazing. The championship raises money for blind
and visually impaired charities and has already raised
more than $580,000.

I'm surprised that was created in 1965. I thought that was one of those things stating back to the Middle Ages.What time of day did the fit -- fishermen create this game?I suspect after a long day on the boat.It is lovely that they make the crown out of conkers. It is a nice touch.

Now totoday's weather,
and Sam Mac is at Parramatta, helping raise money
for the McGrath Foundation.

It's been great. Warning everyone. A great group of volunteers. This is breast Cancer awareness month, a very input and cause to get behind. Glenn McGrath has been on.

Hoyer from news.com.au. Would you hop in a taxi if the driver couldn't speak
English?

Or did not know their way around? They do not need to know their way around now that we have GPS. This is not the way to compete with competitors, to put people in there that you cannot converse with. I would be a bit nervous.I have got no problem with this. They have done it in New York and it has not proven to be a problem.They could never speak English in New York in the taxi.There aren't any taxidrivers born in Australia who actually drive caps, and that is on the decline. They have eps. All they need to do is follow the redline and you are as good as gold. I do not want to have a conversation with my taxi driver. If I am in a taxi, it is a service industry. I am paying somebody to get me from a to B in the quickest time. They should know how to do that. I should be able to articulate to them, down the street, go left, go right. They need to be able to confess at me.Do you catch taxis?I catch you bar.If you want that service, go there.The difference is that you can rate ride sharing services, you expect I don't expect that from a taxi driver.That's really bad.The minimum level of service should be an expectation.35 are sent of taxidrivers were in Australia, and English is their second language. If you went to a store and you could not speak to the person who was serving you, you would be upset. It is a service industry.I don't think the driver needs to be able to comprehend.Speaking of going to the shops, there is a push to remove chocolates and lollies from supermarket to cats. The counsellor can -- Cancer Council believes that removing these products from checkouts will help lower child obesity. Lock them up like cigarettes. I am being a bit cynical about this. Can't you just say no to your kids?It is not just say no to your kids...A slap on the wrist and they put that chocolate.We need better labelling. Sugar is covered up by using fancy names.Let's start with cosmetics. What does that have to do with lollies and obesity? Hang on. You are going left of centre. You are travelling way off the mark. We are talking about and obesity problem children and labelling is one of the things that we can do to change that.But buying a chocolate bar is not the problem. When kids leave school they are going to fast food restaurants. There needs to be able like it banned from 3 PM until 6 PM serving any child in a school uniform stop this is more of a problem than going to Woolworths for a candy bar.I often see them walking into the supermarket and grabbing some red frogs as you go through the checkout.They are sedentary.

Why should we be blaming that is the reason for our B city crisis.The supermarkets use a psychology of where they placing.But they have been doing that forever.If you don't stop at a supermarket you have to go to a convenience store, then a service station. Where does it end?I don't think that's the solution.I think that I am agreeing with you. There is a first for everything.If you get the plain packaging, I like the red frogs and I might get the green frogs.I say we should all go for a hike.A conga line.The crew but are -- like to say unanimously, Jackie, you never get off your phone.

New South Wales Premier
Mike Baird is meeting with his cabinet
to discuss a reversal on his controversial ban
on greyhound racing. An official announcement
is expected around lunchtime which would see harsher
regulations on the sport rather than
outlawing it altogether. A man has been injured when a branch
fell through his roof as Victoria continues to get
battered with wild winds. Crews are still working
on restoring power to more than 15,000 people
still affected in the fallout of the storm. The killer of New South Wales
school teacher Stephanie Scott will be sentenced today. Vincent Stanford faces
a maximum of life imprisonment. An Australian man jailed in Bali
on drugs charges has admitted to police he was only in posession
of hashish to help him cope with cancer. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge
and Prince Harry have taken a ride
on the London Eye with some inspirational Britons
to mark World Mental Health Day.

Checking the weather, possible light showers for Brisbane. Partly cloudy for Canberra and Darwin. The shower or two for Melbourne, Hobart and Adelaide.This son's report is brought to you by lean Australian pork. The succulent pork, get some pork on your fork.This has had a singing all morning.

Remember Whitney Houston and
Kevin Costner in The Bodyguard? # I will always love you #

That was not a strangled cat, it was Kochie.

You'll soon have the chance
to live it all again. The Bodyguard Musical
is coming to Australia. It's based on
the smash-hit 1992 film and will include Houston's
greatest hits including 'I wanna dance with somebody'
and 'I will always love you'. The show has already been a
box-office success in the UK, the Netherlands and Germany. It's due to open in Sydney
in April. A new, improved Justin Bieber
wax figure has been unveiled at Madame Tussauds in London. The shirtless statue is inspired
by the rain shower finale at Bieber's latest concert. The 22-year-old
is also wearing a bandanna and showing off his tattoos. Madame Tussauds is calling it
the "Bieber Experience". Guests will actually
feel like they're at a concert, with dancers,
lights and music all on set. It looks like Ryan Lochte's year
is turning around. The American swimmer
has announced he's engaged. He popped the question
to his girlfriend, Playboy model Kayla Rae Reid
over the weekend and she said yes. It's been a whirlwind romance. The pair met at an LA nightclub
in January. But apparently Lochte
knew Reid was the one when she stayed by him
during the Rio robbery scandal. He's currently competing
on Dancing with the Stars in the US.

Congratulations to the happy couple.

Spice Girl Geri Halliwell has

daughter Bluebell from a previous relationship. Coming up after Sunrise,
rock-and-roll legend, Suze DeMarchi. # But I love, I love,
