This is Sunrise on Seven with Kochie and Nat. Good morning and welcome
to Sunrise. Also ahead,
the ultimate odd couple.

We are making to Cash Cow calls.

so stand by your phones
and don't forget you need to pick up
within three rings. But we'll begin with the news.
Here's Ange. The controversial 457 visa is being scrapped
by the Turnbull government for a new system it says
is in the national interest. Political reporter,
Olivia Leeming is in Canberra. Morning, Olivia. It's being
replaced with two new visas?

Foreigners will now be able to apply for a visa that lasts for two years or four.

that lasts for two years or four. And they'll now need
to have relevant work experience and better English. There'll be stricter paths
to gaining residency and there are fewer types of jobs
they'll be allowed to fill. While employers will have to go
to greater lengths to advertise locally, before
hiring anyone from overseas.

The changes have been broadly welcomed by business groups but they've warned that you knew and skill shortages can be filled. Unions claim this is just a rebranding of the 457 visa scheme, and it won't stop foreigners being hired on cheap wages for jobs that Australians could fill. Tony Abbott has welcomed the new scheme, says he will still openly criticise government policy when he sees fit. He has rejected calls from colleagues to quit politics if he can't stop intervening in the public debate, arguing that voters need to know that at least some coalition MPs understand them.

To breaking news - there are reports just in that an Australian military unit has been involved
in a gas attack in Iraq. It's believed a group
of Iraqi troops and foreign advisors was caught
up in the incident outside of Mosul. We'll have more on this story
as it comes into the newsroom.

The hunt for the so-called
Facebook killer, accused of shooting
an elderly pedestrian and posting the murder
on Facebook, has ended. Seven News US correspondent
Ashlee Mullany joins me with the details. Good morning Ash,
where was he found?

The manhunt for Steve Stevens, wanted over the brutal murder that was posted on Facebook, has come to a dramatic end this morning. Police received a tipoff that his vehicle had been spotted in a car park at a McDonald's in Philadelphia. They were involved in a reef pursuit, and they surrounded his car and they say that he pulled out a gun and took his own life. He had in on the run for two days after shooting 74-year-old Robert Goodwin and posting that video on Facebook. Facebook has come under some intense criticism for how long it took to take that video down, and this morning, arcs a bird addressed a conference -- conference and agreed the company needed to do it.

Our hearts go out
to the family and friends of Robert Godwin Snr, and we have a lot of work, and we will keep doing
what we can to prevent tragedies like this
from happening.

Police in Philadelphia say they are relieved this manhunt has come to an end, that they wish there was a more peaceful resolution and some answers for Mister Godwin's family.

British Prime Minister
Theresa May has made a surprise announcement, calling for a snap election
to be held in June. Seven News Europe correspondent
Cath Turner is in London. Good morning, Cath. What triggered the decision?

Good morning. I got two words for you. Opinion polls. Theresa May's Conservative party was about a 21 point lead over the Labor Party. That is not a move we've seen since 1983. Theresa May has block on -- confidence from those hours -- votes. It would give her a good mandate as she negotiates the exit over the next two years. She has repeatedly said since she took office that there would be no snap election. It was a complete U-turn. No one saw this coming.

Theresa May gave
less than two hours' notice that she would make
a major announcement without giving away any details. And she succeeded
in taking everyone by surprise. I have just chaired
a meeting of the Cabinet, where we agreed
that the government should call a general election,
to be held on June 8. The trigger? Independence day! Brexit. Deep divisions remain
after last years referendum, mainly over access
to the European single market. The country is coming together
but Westminster is not. Whether Brexit should be hard - severing all ties with the EU, or soft - leaving the EU but retaining some trading
and travel rights. And Theresa May has
Opposition leader Jeremy Corbyn in her sights. The latest poll has the Tories with a commanding
21-point lead over Labour - a party in disarray with a leader widely considered
unpopular and ineffective. If Labour loses this election,
will you stand down as - We are campaigning
to win this election, that's the only question now. The Liberal Democrats
are thrilled, hoping to attract voters
who wanted to remain in the EU. And so the stage is set
for even more instability in a country already facing
an uncertain future.

The UK was not supposed to go to the polls until 2020. In order to make this happen, Reza may needed the support of two thirds of the members of parliament. She will go to the House of Commons on Tuesday to ask for the boat, and she will most likely get it. Election day is seven weeks away. Anything can happen on the head campaign trial - - trail.

The Australian War Memorial
has gone undercover to buy back two original
gravestones of our World War II heroes. Seven News reporter
Jessica Dietrich is in Sydney. Jess, who had them?

According to News Corp, a memorabilia collect the reckons he stumbled across them in a rubbish tip about 25 years ago, when the headstones were replaced. This is in a small town in central New South Wales. The tombstones belong to 2 world War two torch cross recipients. Apparently, this dealer was trying to flog these at auction. The Australian War Memorial caught wind of it and sent in an undercover staff member to buy them back for just over $300. This has shocked and appalled the Australian War Memorial's direct who can't believe anyone would try to profit from two highly decorated soldiers in this way. He said is a sad practice when these headstones are replaced that the originals are destroyed. This should only be one in existence in the mark of respect.

Underworld figure
Roberta Williams has received death threats from the man who killed her
husband, Carl Williams. Sunrise correspondent
Nathan Templeton is in Melbourne this morning. Nathan, what's sparked
these threats?

These threats have allegedly come from notorious killer Matthew Johnson, the man who bashed Carl Williams to death in 2010. Johnson has always claimed that he only murdered Williams because Williams was planning to kill him. A jury didn't buy that and he got extra jail time. It seems he is not giving up on that line of defence, it is the Herald Sun reports that Johnson has sent threats to Carl's ex-wife, Roberta, and he's trying to pressure her to testify. He thinks that Kyle was indeed trying to kill him and Johnson can make an appeal on the grounds of self defence. Johnson's gang, the prisoners of war, have targeted the Williams family in the past, and Roberta as well as Carl's late father George had their houses firebombed. Things got really only. A police officer ended up being shot. Roberta has five children so there are real fears that the family or other innocent people could get caught up in the crossfire.

A shark has been caught on camera circling a popular swimming spot
on the Victorian coast. Carla Charlton was at Warrnambool
south-west of Melbourne when she spotted
the huge predator lurking nearby. Is that a shark?That's a shark.
That's a shark. A number of children who were swimming
moments before the shark appeared were pulled from the water. Athletes will be given
a police escort on the way to their events when the Commonwealth Games
kicks off in the Gold Coast. Live to Sunrise reporter
Bianca Stone in Logan, Queensland. Bianca,
why will this be necessary?

Could you imagine the embarrassment if an athlete missed out on winning a gold medal because they were stuck in traffic on the M1. Anyone has used this road between the Gold Coast and Brisbane knows it can be an absolute nightmare. It is already busy this morning. The state government has come up with a plan to manage this that will be released today. It includes allowing athletes and officials to use the shoulder of the road under police escort when traffic is heavy so they can get to the Gold Coast in time for their events. Other traffic management plans include lowering the speed limit from 100 - - 110km/h. Trucks will be banned from using the right hand lane. That measure will come into effect from August this year. 100 -- 100,000 vehicles are expected to use the M1 during the games. People should use public transport or stay on the Gold Coast. Train services will be doubled during the Games. There is under a year to go until the opening ceremony. Music royalty has joined forces with actual royalty for a new campaign to battle the stigma surrounding mental health. Prince William and Lady Gaga posted a video online that they discuss their mental health challenges.You can't help it if in the morning, when you wake up, you are so tight, you are so sad, you are so full of anxiety and the shakes that you can barely think.It is part of a new Heads Together campaign that hopes to encourage people to talk up about their inner battles. Lady Gaga has been quite open in the past about her issues.I know, but who is running their campaign to get this message out is just brilliant.It's good.They are achieving it. What a great idea. Sam Mac is in Melbourne today.Good morning, guys. Very excited to be here for the Melbourne International comedy Festival. It finishes on Saturday. We have the mighty man. This is the Mighty Little Robert show. This is colonel Rita. She is a leader. She hasn't got a face so she can't talk to us.

Beretts has the sport. Burgess is free to line up
for South Sydney in this weekend's ANZAC Round, after being found not guilty
of a shoulder charge at the NRL judiciary. Burgess rolled the dice
last night and it paid off, with the panel deliberating
for 90 minutes before handing down
their verdict. Thankful to get off. Clearly wasn't
a shoulder charge. Impact was with chest,
and head and neck collided. Good news for the Tigers also, with Luke Brooks committing
for two more years and Mitchell Moses named
to play Canterbury on Sunday. Hawthorn have finally
had some good fortune, with Josh Gibson avoiding charge
from the AFL Match Review Panel. Gibson was expected
to face sanction for this hit that left

structural damage to his ankle. Young Supercars driver
Cameron Waters is refusing to set the bar
too high as the V8's prepare

success in the past on the Island and he hopes to build on that
experience this weekend. Yeah, I love Phillip Island. I've had a few good results
there in the past which is nice. For me it's cool to go there and kinda build on what we've
learnt so far this year. For the first time ever, there will be separate 250km
races on Saturday and Sunday.

Always good to have the cars back at the Island.You have to watch for higher degree deck -- degradation. That was what Angela was telling me. The extra 50km. Good work. Soft or hard is?I am always a soft man.I am a hard woman.Hello, Nat.Yes, what they said.

As The Duke and Duchess of
Cambridge and Prince Harry

continue to shape their joint Heads Together mental
health awareness campaign, they've enlisted the help
of someone across the pond - Lady Gaga, long been an advocate of mental
health awareness in the US. In a video released
by Kensington Palace, Gaga facetimes with Prince
William from his London Home. In a very honest video, the pair discuss the importance
of simply having a conversation about mental health.

I wanted to ask you very much how you found speaking out and how it made you feel?It may be very nervous at first. For me, waking up every day and feeling sad and doing on stage is something that is hard to describe. There is a lot of shame attached to mental illness. You feel like something is wrong with you. And in my life I look at all the wonderful things that I have and I should be so happy but you cannot help it if you are in the morning waking up willing tired and sad and full of anxiety so that you can barely think.Such an important message.

Harry Styles has broken
his silence on what it was like dating
Taylor Swift, describing it as "hard"
and a "learning experience". Speaking four years
after their breakup, Styles told Rolling Stone that he didn't expect
the intense reaction when they started dating. He explained that after a
paparazzi photo of he and Swift strolling through Central Park
was released, it put great pressure
on their relationship. Swift is said to have
a written two songs about the former Directioner, while Harry's brand new song
"Ever Since New York" is rumoured to be about Taylor. She's not long separated
from Johnny Depp but it seems Amber Heard is ready

she is "serious" about her new relationship. Her dad told 'Grazia' magazine that Amber would love to marry
and start a family with Elon, who's reportedly worth
around $18 billion dollars. Amber filed for divorce from
Johnny Depp in May last year, amid allegations he bashed
and verbally abused her - claims he has repeatedly denied. A global rock legend has announced his

Stand by your phones.

But first this hour,
to the news, with Ange. The controversial 457 visa
program for skilled migrants is being scrapped, as the government cracks down
on foreign workers. It will be replaced
with two new visas - one for two years,
the other for four. Employers will also have to go
to greater lengths to advertise their positions, to prove they can't be filled
locally. Business groups are welcoming
the new plan, but are warning the government
must make sure genuine skills shortages
can be filled. Tony Abbott is welcoming
the changes, but says he'll still be speaking
out against government policy if he doesn't agree with it. As an ex-prime minister I have an absolute right,
and sometimes a duty, on important national
and international issues, and that's certainly what
I intend to do. He's rejected calls from
colleagues to quit politics, arguing it's his right to talk about the government's
performance on behalf of voters. There are reports just in

25 people were injured but none of the Australians were hurt.

The Australian War Memorial
has gone undercover to buy back two original
gravestones of our World War II heroes. Seven News Reporter
Jessica Dietrich is in Sydney. Jess, who had them?

That is what is being asked. It is standard practice headstones are replaced for the originals to be destroyed so there is only one in existence as a mark of respect. The men came across them in a rubbish tip 25 years ago in Cowra in central New South Wales and has kept them in his private collection for all that time. They marked the teams of two highly decorated Australian soldiers that served in World War II. According to News Court, he was planning to flog them off at auction and the Australian catwalk at Memorial Centre staff member undercover to buy the backward just over $300. The CEO of the War Memorial is dismayed that anybody would profit off this.

Roberta Williams has received death threats from the man who killed
her husband, Carl Williams. Sunrise Correspondent
Nathan Templeton is in Melbourne this morning.

These threats have been sent from behind bars?

They have. It is frightening. He is a maximum-security inmate at prison where he murdered Carl Williams. He is always claim self defence. He has failed to given surgery of that but continues to menace the family. Through other inmates and members of his gang, Prisoner of War. He sent death threats. He's tried to get her to testify that Carl was trying to kill him so he can use the testimony as part of an appeal. It is pretty ugly stuff for Roberta's past which continues to haunt her as is the man who killed her husband. She is one of the people caught up in the crossfire.

Britain is set to go to the
polls in seven weeks following a surprise decision
by Prime Minister Theresa May to call an early election. Seven News Europe correspondent
Cath Turner is in London. Hello, Cath. What does this mean
for Brexit negotiations?

Theresa May has pushed for a hard Brexit, severing all ties with the European union. Union MPs want a softer deal hoping for access to the European single market. There has been threats to block legislation and is calling their bluff. She is banking on being returned to power in the general election with an increased Parliamentary majority and a strong mandate to negotiate Brexit over the -- last two years.It will cause damaging uncertainty and instability to the country so we need a general election and when he won now.Many critics say it is not just about Brexit. Theresa May is keen to destroy her political opponent, Jeremy Corbyn. The labour leader is generally considered to be a week later. The UK is also set to go to the polls in Twenty20 to get this nap election happening. There will be a vote on Tuesday and the election will go under way.

The minutes from the Reserve Bank
board's latest meeting have been released. Craig James is at CommSec. Morning. Craig, what have we learned
from them?

The global economy is barrelling forward and the International Monetary Fund overnight raised its forecast for global economic truth to 3.5%. The expectation is the US and China will be growing so fast they hit their speed limit. Overnight, it is said the Australian economy is expected to grow by 3.1% which is a five hour speed limit. All the signs are pointing to the fact that interest rates will not go down anytime soon and the numbers forecast this morning will say that the rates decrease could be brought forward to this year.Have you changed your view?Not as of yet. We need to wait for the information.You sound like a politician.We need to get through all the world elections.

Here's Mark. Wests Tigers have finally
received some positive headlines, with halfback Luke Brooks
re-signing for another two years. Good news also for the Rabbitohs, with Sam Burgess found not guilty
of a shoulder charge at the NRL judiciary last night. It was a fair hearing. It wasn't a shoulder charge. Contact was with chest,
neck and head, so thankful for that
and looking forward to playing. And Mitchell Moses will have
to wait at least another week to join Parramatta, after the Tigers named him
in their squad for Sunday's clash
with Canterbury. Swans coach John Longmire says he expects to welcome back
a host of stars for Saturday's Sydney derby
against GWS. Last year's grand finalists
go into round five still looking for their first win
of the season, but the news was more positive
ahead of the derby. Tippett, McVeigh, Rowan

You're doing an Indian showcase? Do you enjoy living in Melbourne?I was feeling homesick so I got into a cab the other day and he was Indian. He had a Ganesha on his dashboard, and incense burning and Bollywood music playing. I could also picture myself back home. He stopped the cab.That would not happen in India.

Promising to give Australian jobs to Australians first. Pauline Hanson has been quick to claim the credit. Political reporter Olivia Leaming is in Canberra. What will the Visa changes mean for foreign workers.

On the face of it, it will be harder for them
to get a job here. The Prime Minister's
selling this as putting Australians first, a similar pitch to what we've
seen gain traction in America under Donald Trump. But unions argue this new scheme
is just a re-branding - that it won't stop foreigners
being hired for low-wage jobs that Australians could fill. So instead of the 457 visa, there'll be two new visas
foreigners can apply for - one's for two years, the other
is for higher-skilled workers and lasts for four and the longer visa will be
the only pathway to residency. Overseas workers
will now have to have at least two years
of relevant work experience, pass criminal checks
and have better English. And there are fewer types of jobs
they'll be allowed to apply for - more than 200 occupations
have been cut including pilots,
call centre managers, singers and TV presenters, even though it's unlikely
many of those were ever filled by someone
on a 457 visa. But for about 95,000 people who are on the old visa
at the moment, they won't be affected by
any of these changes. It only applies to
future job seekers.

Tony Abbott continues to be a thorn in the prime ministers side, with colic suggesting he should stop the stopping or he should resign. Mr Abbott is defending his comments, saying he has every right.He argues he's been helpful. He said that his duty to voters who attempted to move to the minor parties, to make sure they know there are people in the coalition who are listening to their concerns and understand them, even though his colleagues have had enough. That said he is damaging the government and is tarnishing his own reputation as a former leader. Mr Abbott says he will not be staying silent.

My job, as long as
I'm in the Parliament, is to be the best possible
local member. But as an ex-Prime Minister, I have an absolute right,
and sometimes a duty, to speak out on important national
and international issues. And that's certainly
what I intend to do.

If he does keep speaking he could hurt him down the track. It is only likely to increase as chances of facing a preselection challenge ahead of the next election in his seat, if the Liberal Party powerbrokers see him as continuing to destabilise the government. Thank you, Olivia.

The American man who shot dead

and posted the murder on Facebook
has died. Seven News US correspondent
Ashlee Mullany joins me with the details. Ash, where did police
catch up with him?

Good morning. This was just an awful, senseless crime and Steve Stephens got the world's attention by posting it on Facebook. Police tried to catch him but it was staff members at a McDonald's that actually caught him. They caught him going through a drive through in Philadelphia. They went into a police pursuit and when they finally cornered him, he had removed his gun and took his own life. He had been on the run for two days after shooting another man dead on Easter Sunday, just a tragic story that his family is still very much trying to come to grips with. We know that video was posted on Facebook and the company has come under some pressure for Helena took them to remove it and this morning Mark Zuckerberg has made some comments.

Our hearts go out to the family
and friends of Robert Godwin Snr and we have a lot of work, and we will keep doing

from happening.

by the Turnbull government for a new system it says
is in the national interest. Political reporter,
Olivia Leeming is in Canberra. Olivia, it's being replaced
with two new visas? Ange, foreigners will be able
to apply for a visa that lasts for two years or four. And they'll now need
to have relevant work experience and better English. There'll be stricter paths
to gaining residency and there are fewer types of jobs
they'll be allowed to fill, while employers will have to go to greater lengths
to advertise locally, before hiring anyone
from overseas.

Unions say that this is just a rebranding and would not affect foreigners taking jobs that Australians could fill. There are new reports this morning that companies who want to bring in foreign workers could face higher taxes to help train Australians.

Former prime minister Tony Abbott
has welcomed the new scheme, but says he'll still openly
criticise government policy when he sees fit. As an ex-prime minister I have an absolute right
and sometimes a duty to speak out on important national and international
issues, and that's certainly
what I intend to do. He's rejected calls
from colleagues to quit politics if he can't stop intervening
in the public debate. He argues voters need to know some Coalition MPs understand
them, Ange. There are reports this morning that an Australian military unit has been involved
in a gas attack in Iraq. It's believed a group of Iraqi
troops and foreign advisors was caught up in the incident
outside of Mosul. Islamic State is being blamed. We'll have more on this story
as it comes into the newsroom.

A collector of war memorabilia
has sparked outrage for auctioning off
the original gravestones of two Australian war heroes. The gravestones belonged to World War II
George Cross recipients - Private Benjamin Hardy
and Private Ralph Jones. The dealer says he found them
at a rubbish tip. Australian War Memorial director
Brendan Nelson is disappointed someone would try
to profit off the gravestones of highly decorated diggers, saying the sale went against
common decency. He authorised
an undercover mission to buy them back
at a private auction in Goulburn for $325. Underworld figure
Roberta Williams has received death threats
from Matthew Johnson, the man who killed her husband,
Carl Williams. The threats are believed
to get Williams to testify in Johnson's self-defence appeal. The plot allegedly involved different Prisoner of War
gang members, from Barwon supermax prison. There are also concerns that her children could get
caught in the crossfire. British Prime Minister
Theresa May has made a shock announcement, calling an early general election
to be held on June 8. She made the major announcement outside Number 10 Downing Street
overnight, moving the date for the
poll forward from 2020. May argues it was necessary
to strengthen her hand in divorce talks with
the European Union, and to try and stop
the opposition jeopardising her work on Brexit. US Vice President Mike Pence has delivered another
stark threat to North Korea, as he continues his tour of Asia. Seven News senior reporter
Robert Ovadia joins us from
the South Korean capital, Seoul. Rob, Pence met with Japanese
officials overnight?

Correct. Specifically Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. These talks have been on for a few months but now that North Korea is at a flashpoint, that took centre stage. Mike Pence assured him of the United State's resolve to move through this issue and that the days of patients is over. He assured him that the recent bombings in Syria and Afghanistan without seeking UN approval is an example of that result. Career is yet to say anything today but there was much to be said yesterday about war if America should attack North Korea.

this weekend. The Swans boast an overall 8-3
head-to-head advantage. The Roosters are backing
Latrell Mitchell to return a better player after the youngster was omitted
from their Anzac Day squad. Coach Trent Robinson has opted
to rest Mitchell over the past fortnight as the 19-year-old learns
to deal with the rigours of the NRL. It looks like
he's coming through it and when he gets back out there,
he'll be doing well. Another youngster,
20-year-old Joseph Manu will replace Mitchell

is refusing to be silenced despite calls
from some Liberal colleagues to keep quiet or quit Parliament. My job, as long as
I'm in the Parliament, is to be the best possible
local member. But as an ex-prime minister, I have an absolute right
and sometimes a duty to speak out on important national
and international issues, and that's certainly
what I intend to do. Mr Abbott's
continued political commentary is a hot topic this morning. To discuss it, we're joined
by Alan Jones from 2GB and 4BC. And 'Herald Sun'columnist,
Rita Panahi in Melbourne. Alan, Mr Abbott spoke with you at
length last night on TV. Are his comments
helping or hindering the Turnbull government? Well, the Turnbull Government
is not the nation. The Turnbull Government
isn't the Liberal party. The Liberal party are very,
very disillusioned about the performance of some people
in the Turnbull government. Tony Abbott
is being asked questions and he's answering them
honestly. The notion that a prime minister
should walk around as member of Parliament
and have nothing to say is laughable. And yesterday
Warren Hench made the point that changes in leadership
are destabilising, and therefore Mr Abbott
should leave the party, well he's definitely right
about the changes in leadership and destabilising, and the Liberal Party
have now seen the consequence of what's happened when the bed-wetters went
to water and axed Tony Abbott. in the history
of the Liberal Party, following the Labor Party
tradition. And now look at the party is. It looks like they can't
win government.

Alan, he said he would not carry out a running commentary? Isn't this a running commentary?It is not a running commentary, it is policy. He has had interesting things to say. You talked about foreign ownership. All of these things are things that he is meeting and he is raising money for charity. He ventilated those issues. That is with the Liberal Party base expect him to do. They feel they have been abandoned by certain policy directions of the government.

OK, Rita, what do you think? Does he have a right? Absolutely. Not only as a former
prime minister, but as an experienced
parliamentarian. When he's asked his opinion,
he is entitled to give it. And you know what? Malcolm Turnbull should
occasionally thank him for speaking out like he does, because he does speak
to that disaffected base that has abandoned the party
and put their vote elsewhere, particularly in the upper house. And the more Tony Abbott
is part of the team and speaks for those people,
perhaps come back into the fold Malcolm Turnbull can fix this
by making Tony Abbott part of the ministry - make him Indigenous Affairs
Minister. The current guy, Scullion,
is an absolutely hopeless case. You could poll
thousands of Australians, and not one of them
would know who he is. And Abbott's proven himself
in that portfolio before and he would do a wonderful job. But Turnbull refuses to
take advantage of his experience and this is the end result. OK, on something else. The Australian War Memorial
has been forced to go undercover to buy the original headstones
of two Australian war heroes. the gravestones of two soldiers
killed by Japanese POWs in the Cowra breakout. They were meant to be destroyed following the replacement
years ago, but when they were recently
offered up to auction, the War Memorial had to step in. Alan, should the War Memorial have been put in such a position
in the first place? You are right, it's
a terrible story, isn't it? I don't know how this
is all happened. Apparently when the gravestones
were replaced... they headstones were replaced... they were actually
thrown in the tip. My understanding is that they
were meant to be destroyed. Brendan Neilson
does a great job. Some bloke who gathers
these war memorials artefacts has gathered them from,
I think, Cowra. Some second hand operation. And then on sold them. Brendan Neilson, I believe, saw they were for sale and thought this was an improper
thing to do. And decided to pay $325
or something. Brendan Neilson is just a legend in the way in which he protects
the heritage and the history of Australia and those
who served Australia at war. So it's said, they were meant
to be destroyed when they are replaced,
but these two weren't. And so Brendan Nelson has taken
them out of circulation for $325 and I think we have to be
grateful to him. Yeah, it sounds like, Rita, the Commonwealth Graves
Commission messed up years ago and sent them to the tip. Absolutely, they are meant
to be destroyed when they replaced,
not sent to the tip. But I think this is
an opportunity to learn a little bit
about the sacrifice that these men
and their bravery. I have to say, I hadn't heard
of this case before, and both of them are such
extraordinarily brave men and such horrible, horrible
deaths. I think it important
for all of us to appreciate the sacrifices
those men made for us to live in freedom. Learn more about the Cowra
breakout. Thank you both. Coming up - Why eBay is threatening

Sunrise on this Hump Day.

Stand by your phones.Cash Cow could be calling you. 20 grand, tax-free. Write in your hand. Although, we love paying tax.We are good citizens.

But we'll begin this hour
with Ange and the news. The controversial 457 visa is being scrapped
by the Turnbull government for a new system it says
is in the national interest. Political reporter,
Olivia Leeming is in Canberra. Olivia, the Prime Minister says this will ensure work
goes to Australians first? Ange, that's his pitch
to voters - that Australians will have
first priority when it comes to jobs. The 457 visa will be replaced by two visas
foreigners can apply for - one lasts two years,
the other four. And they'll now need to have
relevant work experience and better English. There'll be stricter paths
to gaining residency and there are fewer types of jobs
they'll be allowed to fill. For those with a 457 visa, there's about 95,000 of them, they won't be affected
by these changes. Unions say this is just
a re-branding of the old scheme, that it won't stop foreigners
being hired on cheap wages for jobs Australians could fill. But it has been broadly welcomed
by business groups as long as genuine
skills shortages can be filled. But News Corp is reporting companies applying to bring
in foreigners will pay more under a new tax
to be announced in the budget. How much will depend
on their size and that money would go towards
a fund to train Australians. But we won't know the details
until next month, Ange. There are reports

Ashlee Mullany joins me with the details. Ash, what happened?

This man has been taken into custody this morning after going on what appears to be a shooting spree in Fresno California. Police say they will receive reports of gunshots at 1045 this morning. There were 16 rounds fired. That identified the man as a 39-year-old. They tackled him to the ground after he shot dead three men. That's when he was shouting Allu Akbar,. Police are saying this is an ongoing investigation into early to say whether it is a terrorism incident.

A collector of war memorabilia
has sparked outrage for auctioning off the original
gravestones of two Australian war heroes. Seven News reporter
Jessica Dietrich is in Sydney. Jess, the Australian War Memorial
had to buy the gravestones back?

They did. They found that they were for sale and didn't want them in the wrong hands again, so they sent in a staff member a fortnight ago into country New South Wales to go to the private auction. And purchase of both of them for just over $300. The supposed of been destroyed when replacements were brought in for the tombstones, but a private collector reckons he found them at a rubbish tip more than 20 years ago, and is held onto them and has only recently decided to put them up to auction to try and benefit from them. They were from the graves of two highly decorated soldiers is served in World War II, Private Benjamin Hardy and private Ralph Jones.

Firefighters have rushed
to put out a blaze, which consumed a wedding dress
store, near Brisbane. Live to Sunrise reporter,
Bianca Stone, in Ipswich. Bianca, how bad is the damage?

Lots of wedding dresses are lost. It looks like a horror movie inside the rights to be store. There were 180 beautiful wedding gowns inside the store. None of them can be saved. There is no amount of dry cleaning deck and get the damage out of this. The fire started before midnight at the back of the store, in analytical box, it is believed to be an accidental fire. These dresses have been damaged by smoke and water but nothing is solid. The shop is only been open for three months, so devastating for the owners. It was a dream to open a winning store. The owner, Chris Stewart, said he used to be a minor and realised his wife dream to open a shop. They have a number of layby is out the back and a number have been destroyed. Is number one pretty is to get wedding dresses reordered. Thankfully, there are no wedding dresses out there that need to be warned this week and, the brides will be happy. Chris does have a sense of humour he says there may be a fire sale. Lots of rights to be be anxious this morning. -- Brides.

Underworld figure
Roberta Williams has received death threats from
the man who killed her husband, Carl Williams. Sunrise correspondent
Nathan Templeton is in Melbourne this morning. Nathan, do we know the motive
behind these threats?

Matthew Johnson has always claimed that he murdered Carl Williams in self defence, and he got in first because Williams is planning to kill him. A jury did not buy that at the time, but Johnson is still try to set the fence, and now is using some pretty frightening tactics to pursue it. The Herald Sun reports that Johnson had threatened Roberta Williams. He is basically trying to show her into testifying and saying that yes, Carl was plotting to kill Johnson. If she did say that on the record, Johnson could use it in a potential appeal. Members of Johnson's gang Is not Of War have many are for years. Only two years ago the homes of Roberta and Carl's late father George were targeted. In the bungled attack, a policeman was shot. You have to remember, Roberta has five children. There are real feels among police that the remnants of the underworld could continue to endanger innocent people.

Police are hunting two thieves who stole a large amount
of gold and diamonds from an Adelaide jewellery store. Seven News reporter Gertie Taylor
is in Adelaide. Gertie, police have released
images of the suspects?

They have. In the hope that someone might recognise two of the suspects involved in yesterday's brazen robbery. Lisa had happened at 1115 at the shopping centre behind me. Two men walked into the jewelry store, one had a large rock and used it to smash a display cabinet. The pair took off with 86 gold and diamond rings. A third accomplice is waiting in the getaway car in the car park. They jumped in and drove off and haven't been seen since. A total dollar bill hasn't been released for the amount taken, but no doubt is worth thousands of dollars. Please say, if anyone does spot them trying to be sold online or a pawn shop, members of the public should contact the police. Fortunately, nobody was hurt.

British Prime Minister
has called for a snap election to be held in June, as she tries to strengthen
her hand in divorce talks
with the European Union. Seven News Europe correspondent
Cath Turner is in London. Cath, what do people think
of the surprise announcement?

The Brexit vote was only 10 months ago, and this one was seven weeks away. There is a sense of voter fatigue. It will be interesting to see the turnout in seven weeks time. Theresa May has campaigned for a hard Brexit, severing all ties with the U, but she says she's been undermined by pushback from other parties. She is banking on being returned to power with an increased parliamentary majority, living her a strong mandate to guide the UK out of the European union.

Division in Westminster will risk our ability to
make a success of Brexit and it will cause
damaging uncertainty and instability to the country. So we need a general election
and we need one now.

Many people say, this is not about Brexit, is also about personal politics. She is hoping to destroy her opponent, Jeremy Corbin, who is considered to be weak and ineffective. Many common -- commentators are saying this could spell his demise. We're counting down to tomorrow of whether the election could happen, she misses the support of two thirds of MPs. Then the Count town will begin. Who said that British politics are boring?

Music royalty
has met actual royalty for a new campaign
to battle the stigma surrounding mental health. Prince William and Lady Gaga
posted a video online, where they discuss their
mental health challenges. You can't help it if in the morning
when you wake up and you're so tired
and you're so sad, and you're so full of anxiety,
and the shakes, that you can barely think. It's part of a new
Heads Together campaign which hopes to encourage people to speak up
about their inner battles.

Good idea to get them together online.Very powerful. Good chat.

Mitchell Moses has had another
release request denied, and has been named
in Wests Tigers squad to face Canterbury on Sunday. Moses stayed away from the cameras at
Tigers headquarters yesterday, but he attended training and his team mates are hoping
that continues. I want him to stay,
and he's here at training today, so I guess he's here this week. and yeah I like him as a player,
and I love him as a friend. Meanwhile, Luke Brooks
has re-signed with the Tigers for two more years. GWS coach Leon Cameron
has suggested the AFL ladder should be ignored ahead
of this weekend's Sydney derby. The Giants have three wins
from four, the Swans are winless, but Cameron says his side
must bring their A-game. Only a month ago, we got clearly smacked
by the Crows by about 10 goals, so it's a ruthless competition, and if we're not right
on Saturday, the Swans will carve us up. And Port Adelaide has refuted
claims that their round 8 game
against Gold Coast in Shanghai is in doubt. Seven will broadcast the game
on Sunday May 14.

There were reports on the AFL website that given the situation in North Korea, it could be a threat to the Shanghai match.I rang my friend, the premier, and he is very supportive. Not a problem.It's good to go straight to the top. A shock, but good.A load of bull dust.Sam is in the weather in Melbourne.A bit of fog in Melbourne.

An awful random act of violence here in the US. This man was taken into custody after going on a shooting spree in Fresno, California. Police were responding to gunshots around 10 10:45 AM. 10 rounds were fired, and he shot dead three men. There've identified the suspect as a man named Corey Arlie Mohammed. A 39-year-old man. Lisa saying they tackled him. That's when he shouted "Allu Akbar. This saying is too early to say whether it was a terrorist attack but the saying it was random.The individuals that were chosen today did not do anything to deserve what they got. These were unprovoked attacks by an individual that was intent on carrying out, sides. -- Homicides.Police were saying this man was wanted for another homicide, he shot dead a security guard outside the motel early this week and they were already looking for him over the crime. It is a developing story. Not sure whether this is terror related or what the motive is.Three innocent people shot dead in Fresno, California.

Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull has scrapped the controversial
457 visa program, promising to give Australian jobs
to Australians first. So, what do the changes mean? The existing arrangement
will be replaced by a new system,

which includes
a two-year visa option and the list
of eligible occupations will be reduced from the
current list of more than 200. The two year visa does not
allow permanent residency. A second new visa,
with a maximum four-year term will also be available. It'll require a higher level
of English. And both visas will
need a criminal record check, which is not currently the case. Other changes will see employers
advertising jobs locally before offering them
to foreign workers. The language test
will be stricter. At least three years' experience
will be needed, and applicants must be
under 45 years old.

Quite a few different rules.

Seven News political editor
Mark Riley joins me for more. Morning, Riles.

Changes are fiddling around the edges. Why couldn't they tighten the rules around existing pieces? They wanted to say that abolished for five sevens. They could have rebased it. Some of the changes are substantial. There is a bit more integrity in the system, which is needed, but this is a lot about politics. The government wanted people to know it was doing something, as much as there were big changes, it wanted people know it was hearing the messages coming back, to consent about foreign workers taking Australian jobs and its trumpet up a bit. Australians first, Australian jobs. An echo of what Donald Trump said last year. I was surprised we don't check criminal records.I think the immigration department does do that, it is a bit little prosecutorial than the checks to now.Tony Abbott is still staring the pot, despite his colleagues demanding he shut up. My job, as long in the parliament, is to be the best possible local member. As an expert minister, I have an absolute right, and sometimes a duty, to speak out on important national and international issues, and that's what I intend to do.We kicked them out as prime ministers. Disaster given the right to stir the pot and be vocal on government policies? Weeding kickabout. Malcolm Turnbull and the party kicked them out. How has no theory -- theory like a prime ministers scored. He does have a right to say what he thinks about the direction of the government, what the prime ministers normally want backbenchers to do, and Tony Abbott is a backbencher, is to do that in private, in the party room through the normal processes ordering up the promised and say listen, you are wrong. These are the messages I'm hearing from my electorate. Is doing it publicly. He knows that that is building the pressure and the impression of instability. Disunity is death, as John Howard used to say, but he's doing exactly what Malcolm Turnbull did to Tony Abbott when he was promised a, and Malcolm Turnbull took the truth serum and felt compelled to speak the truth at every opportunity, so now Tony Abbott is doing the same thing. It is like school girls.Get on with running the country.

The family of the teenage girl killed in a horror shark attack
off the WA coast, have spoken of their
heartbreak and grief. Laeticia died doing something
that she loved. The ocean was her
and her family's passion. Surfing was something that she treasured doing
with her dad and her sisters. The attack has thrown the issue
of beach safety back in the spotlight, with the West Australian
government having dumped its controversial
shark culling policy, other measures
are now being considered. One Australian company says
it has the answer, in the form of
new drone technology. The unmanned craft can spot
and identify sharks at popular beaches,
with 90% accuracy. Ben Trollope is
from The Little Ripper Group, the company behind
this technology. Thanks for joining us Ben. Can you explain how
this software works?

The technology ultimately is deep learning technology. The more we feed the algorithm, the better it will be, the more it will learn, and the more accurate it will get. Has that differ from shoppers?We are taking out the opportunity of human error. With putting drone technology above local beaches, and allowing an algorithm to take control of what it spots. You can tell the difference between the sharks, between surfers, between Wales, dolphins, stingrays, turtles. It is really accurate. How do we get that information to the people on our beaches?Ultimately, everything with our company, it's about more eyes, more often. We're looking to do more surveillance, and on specific beaches, and hopefully in time, every beach in Australia is patrolled, to have a drone with a loudspeaker on board, so you can see the animal weather is deemed a threat or non-threat up to about a kilometre away, and then warn swimmers and surfers that there is a potential threat.Drones are amazing. Maybe this is the way of the future? Here is David.

Ebay is threatening
to block Aussie shoppers, if the Federal Government enacts
a new overseas tax law. From July, GST will be imposed
on online purchases of less than $1000, which
are made from overeas sellers, such as Amazon, eBay and Asos. Aussie retailers have been
campaigning for the new law to even up the playing field, but overseas sellers say it
shouldn't be up to them to collect GST. I'm joined now by Fairfax Media's
Finance expert Michael Pascoe. Good morning. Could eBay really ban Aussies from buying
from overseas sellers?

To begin with, you have to announce that they have zero credibility to talk about tax. They huge regrets. They avoid tax like crazy. They claim they don't have an Australian business! Don't trust anything eBay says about tax. Could they do it? Yes, but they be doing themselves at a profit. I doubt they will. They are childish. They have such a bad reputation, don't pay on time. If this goes ahead, the prices rise?If the poly is introduced as the government intends, there will be GST from what you buy overseas across the board. Prices should go up to 10% depending on pressures. Was always a reason that cost collecting on smaller purchases is why there is not to be it. There was always a hassle but hey collected. Two hard, to Spencer for the post office to do it. So the government came up with the idea of flicking responsibility to eBay, and it will be easier for us.And Australian businesses have to collect it. Why are they so precious about it?They claim their not the seller, just the facilitator.That is bull dust! They say it won't help Aussie retailers. Is that? Right it is marginal. That is not the issue for Australian retailing. Will it help the government or the country? Yes it does.You have to pay the schools somehow.

More on our breaking news
out of the US - a man has shot and killed
three people in the Californian town
of Fresno, 300km south of San Francisco. Seven News US correspondent
Ashlee Mullany joins me with the details. Ash, what more can you tell us?

Police have spoken, they describing this as a random act of violence, but they still trying to work out the motive was. This man was hurting nine-year-old man identified as Corey Ali moment. It appears he went on a shooting spree in Fresno California killing three men. -- Kori Ali Muhammad. They say he was shouting Allahu Akbar, but they're not yet sure whether this was terror related, on the train to work out what the motive was. He was already wanted police for a previous matter. He allegedly shot dead a security guard at a motel earlier in the week. Trying to work out what led to this violent at best today in Fresno.

There are reports this morning that an Australian military unit
has been involved in a gas attack in Iraq. It's believed a group of Iraqi
troops and foreign advisors was caught up in the incident
outside of Mosul. Islamic State is being blamed. The controversial
457 visa program for skilled migrants is being scrapped as the government cracks down
on foreign workers. It will be replaced
with two new visas, one for two years,
the other for four. Employers will also have to
go to greater lengths to advertise their positions, to prove
they can't be filled locally. Business groups
are welcoming the new plan but are warning the government
must make sure genuine skills shortages
can be filled. Tony Abbott is welcoming
the changes, but says he'll still be
speaking out against government policy if he doesn't agree with it. As an ex-prime minister, I have an absolute right
and sometimes a duty to speak out on important national
and international issues and that's certainly
what I intend to do. He's rejected calls
from colleagues to quit politics, arguing it's his right to talk about
the Government's performance on behalf of voters. The Australian War Memorial
has gone undercover to buy back
two original gravestones of our World War II heroes. The gravestones belonged to
George Cross recipients Private Benjamin Hardy
and Private Ralph Jones. The dealer says he found them
at a rubbish tip more than 20 years ago. Australian War Memorial director
Brendan Nelson says the sale goes against
common decency and he is disappointed
someone would try to profit off the gravestones
of highly-decorated diggers. Some brides to be will have
a nervous wait after fire destroyed
a wedding dress shop in Ipswich. Firefighters were called
to Brisbane Street shortly after midnight to find the building well alight. The building sustained significant smoke and water
damage. No one was injured in the blaze. The fire is not being treated
as suspicious. It is not yet known how many wedding dresses
have been destroyed. Underworld figure
Roberta Williams has received death threats
from Matthew Johnson, the man who killed her husband in an attempt to get her to
testify in an appeal. It's believed
that Matthew Johnson orchestrated the threats
from behind bars in an attempt to tell a court
that he killed Carl Williams in self defence. The plot allegedly involved different 'Prisoner of War'
gang members from Barwon supermax prison. There are concerns that Williams's children could
get caught in the crossfire. Athletes will be rushed down
the shoulder of the Pacific Motorway
by police when the Commonwealth Games comes
to the Gold Coast. The plan intends to ensure
they don't get caught in traffic heading to events from Brisbane. Organisers are worried events
would otherwise be held up because of late athletes. British Prime Minister
Theresa May has made a shock announcement, calling an early general election
to be held on June 8. She made the major announcement outside Number 10 Downing Street
overnight. The next election
wasn't due until 2020. Prime Minister May
wants to strengthen her hand in divorce talks
with the European Union and stop the opposition
jeopardising her work on Brexit. US Vice President Mike Pence says
America will not rest until North Korea gives up
its nuclear weapons. Seven News senior reporter
Robert Ovadia joins us from
the South Korean capital, Seoul. Rob, what has Mr Pence's visit
done for tensions in the region?

It hasn't done anything to ease tensions, but that's probably the point. This is about building pressure on North Korea, to give up its nuclear ambitions. Having spent a number of days here, we went to Japan yesterday to assure Shinzo Abe that America is committed to taking proactive steps to getting Kim Jong-un to fall into line. The question is, what those proactive steps will be. He said a couple of days ago, that the error of strategic nations is over, and the key to all of this, is China. China is the only country on earth that has any ability to is or convince North Korea to do anything. Donald Trump's primacy in China does have some sort of effect, China has been vocal in suggesting it is conducting trade sanctions against North Korea. His tenure and coal shipments from North Korea as well. Having said that, North Korea already knew that was happening and still conducted tests a couple of days ago.

A family in Texas has woken up
to quite an unwelcome visitor at their front door. They didn't open the door
to greet him but the alligator wouldn't leave
without a fight. Experts had to be called in
to secure the reptile, although their strength
was no match for the massive alligator. Finally, they managed to control
the gator, pulling him off the property and releasing
him into a nearby pond.

Geez.He looks angry, doesn't it. I am loving your animal story.I thought you like this more than the pandas. A killer gate at your door. Pandas are good, but wow.Put him in a panda pen. That would be vision!That is cruel.I apologise. Time for spot.

Sam Burgess is free

Princess Diana's personal butler

Would you reckon, off to Alice Cooper?I saw him back in the late 70s. He was great. He had chickens and snacks.Moving on. No chickens involved.

Paul Burrell was
Princess Diana'spersonal butler right up until her death. He was her most trusted adviser, but with such an important role
came a lot of responsibility, and plenty of controversy. He was always there. Always by her side. Paul Burrell spent a decade as
Princess Diana's personal butler. He became the keeper
of her many secrets. As Prince Charles
and Diana's marriage broke down, the Princess turned to Paul. I am Diana's rock
and I'll always be her rock. He spoke to Diana
the day before she passed away. Her very last words to me were, "Paul, promise me
you'll be there... "Promise me you'll be there
for me". But after her death, Paul found himself
in the middle of royal scandal. He was charged with stealing over
300 items belonging to Diana, including clothing
and family photo albums. I kept them safe. That could be part
of history lost and there would be no proof. I think it's important
that I remembered this property wasn't mine,
it never was, and I was keeping it safe. After numerous postponed trials, the case collapsed and Paul
was acquitted of all charges. Controversially,
he created more scandal by writing tell-all books. He revealed many secrets including details
about the Princess' love life. She told me
that she had been given a ring and asked me what to do with it. I said,
"Fourth finger, right hand". Now, I never knew
if she took my advice. And just this year,
he sat down with Melissa Doyle and shared a private letter
she wrote to him. "My husband is planning
an accident in my car, "brake failure,
and serious head injury, "in order to make the path clear
for him to marry." Most recently,
Paul Burrell came out as gay after 32 years of marriage
and two kids with his former wife, Maria. And Paul Burrell joins us now.

It is so incredible. He joins us now. Take us back your days with Diana. How is it looking back on? ThatI was a lucky guy, to be looking after the most beautiful woman in the world. Who would want to spend a day in position. With that, comes a lot of responsibility. You are stuck between a rock and a hard place. You have to tell people who you knew, I moral petition to tell people about the beautiful woman that I know, but I never had a legal right to do that. That's where I came unstuck in the past. You've been accused of profiteering from your relationship. Why do you think you had a moral obligation? That this was your friend and she died in a tragic accident, she is your best friend any new her inside out, and other people are telling lies in stories, what would you do? Would you stand up in her corner and say, you are wrong because I was there. I lived it. That was my role.You see yourself as a defender?I do. She would say to me, Paul, don't sit there quietly. So something. Do something. Don't let them get away with it. Remember, she was up against the system. The royal family, the establishment, everyone was against. It all flipped when she died, and she became a saint. I don't forget what happened before.My generation, adored her. We grew up with her. She was our idol. You are living his story. She is viewed as a safe. She mustn't have been.She was flawed. She was incredible and unique and inspirational.But day- to-day?She had problems. She had Belinda and anorexia. Believe me out all her life. It was a condition of how she was treated other people. You know she had the fears about Dine. She wrote them down in that letter. It is spooky to look at that letter, and retrain thoughts in her own hand. If that had been a letter from and blend saying my husband is going to chop my head off -- --, that would be of national importance.Have the boys contacted? YouI haven't spoken to them since their mother died in 1997. But I'd love to speak to them. I love to tell Kate about the incredible woman who changed all the rules to make her life more comfortable. To give her a better life as a royal. It's what Diana did.If you are so close, why haven't the boys been in contact with you? YouI don't know. Think about the system. The rule establishment is up against me because I'm the outsider. I belong in Dina's worldannual you're also talking about her. And a lie.I'm the one who got away. You've never heard me say anything disrespectful about and or the Queen. We have a wonderful monitor. She's 91 on Friday, long may she reign.What you think of the boys?I think they are wonderful. They are following in the mother's footsteps. She had them for long enough to instill her hopes and dreams and ideals. Now the product of Diana.There's a new book about Prince Charles says his relationship with Diana was hostel. The Princess had him, harmed him in front of them. Did that happen?The Princess did hummus off but I never saw that happen. There were many arguments behind closed doors. Their relationship was not one of the great love affair. In the beginning, it was. The boys were born out of love it when sadly wrong because of another person in the marriage.Did Diana make Charles's life hell?She is very unhappy with a lie. She had a close or position. She had no titles. They didn't marginalise her, put her on the outside. She was very unhappy with that. Yes, life was very difficult for Charles. But he wasn't a very kind man to her at times, either. He would tell her that you look like a Caledonia stewardess dressed in the top. What she came downstairs wearing black and white and he said you look like you belong to the mafia. And she said, I can't listen.Did he physically?Harm her I never saw any physically harm. But mental torture.Would you term it an abusive relationship?To was into the life she was abused by many people.But between Charles and Diana.I would say abusive. I'd say, dysfunctional -- lessons that. Wouldn't say abusive. If you love them or he would have kept a safe and she was still be alive today. It's very sad that we didn't take care of the precious jewel in the British Crown because that was our gift.What turned Charles back to Camilla?Once Harry was born he had he didn't have to work at the marriage.He done his duty.Yes. And as Diana said, there were always three people in the marriage. She once said to me, if ever you've seen the footage of her looking from side to side, she told me that she is looking for Camilla. She was there in the congregation watching the marriage.So she was suspicious and distracted even at her own wedding of Camilla?Yes.Is that because of the story that Philip had written to him and said, hurry up and get married.His duty was to give a bear and despair for the royal family. Now she was there at the right place. An 18-year-old girl who never had a boyfriend before, a perfect royal from a very good family. She was brought into the royal family as a lamb to the slaughter. She was naive, innocent,

the royal family as a lamb to the
slaughter. She was naive, innocent,, fresh. All of the things they wanted her to be.It sounds very calculating.She was pushed into the deep end and lead to swim. She lent to survive.She achieved a lot for somebody who was very naive and thrown in.What she was a survivor and never 2nd to anyone. He saw it its full status call, she was determined to win the race. She had to win. Nobody would ever defeat. What is your view on Kate?She's put a foot wrong. Incredible. She something Dina never had, the love and support of a man who adores her. She can't go wrong.Did the boys... How did it affect them, this essence of Camilla?They were unaware. They were children. Children are not aware of their parent's sexuality and what happens in the marriage. They don't want -- have to know what goes on. And the boys were a weight school. So they never saw it.Thank you so much. What a fascinating insight. What an incredible life. And congratulations on your marriage. And what better way to start a honeymoon then here in?

A nanny who was looking after
Maddie McCann It's a world-first career path
for millennials - An opportunity
to use social media to get employed. Sunrise Reporter Shaun White has been looking at how you can
use Snapchat to snap up a job. Now you can apply for a job
through Snapchat. Yes, uploading a story
about yourself instead of a resume. So is this marketing genius
or social media gone crazy? I would love to have a job
at Maccas because I'm hard working and
I'm a fun person to be around. Meet McDonald's latest recruit. 14-year-old Claudia Car snapping up her first job
through Snapchat. I do it every day
and so it was more normal to be doing that then filling
out, like, a resume. How does it work? You simply share your name
and a little about yourself in under ten seconds. Send your "snaplication"
to @maccas and you're done. It's cool, I guess. It's, like, not normal
but different, I guess. Unique?
Yes. Strategic? On point
with it's target market? Yes. We know the audience
are on Snapchat snapping away at each other, so we thought it would be
a great idea to give them a lens, make them look like
they're crew with a cap and a badge
and be able to give us a snap. On one side, you can really
spread the word and market yourself. On the other, maybe a little bit
too much exposure is not necessarily
the best thing. If you're not aware
of the power of social media within the world of employment, you may not be across all of the
opportunities within your reach. I think that people
will get left behind if they don't look for new ways of connecting
with potential employers and technology is the future
for that. Josh Burrows is the founder
of the Creem. It's an online platform connecting hospitality workers
with potential work. It's a profile-based application where employers and employees
both create their own profiles which will link
to their companies jobs. More and more, we're seeing the traditional CV
or resume transfom from a piece of paper to a digital profile
like on LinkedIn, a Snapchat, or even a mixed bag
of multimedia. They can use their profile
to attach their credentials. Their personality, their video,
their character to that job for that company
to see them no matter where in the world
they are. Here in Australia,
one thing is for sure - Claudia is cheering
after snapping up her first job thanks to her snappy Snapchat
skills.

Sydneythe ego.

The go.I have to learn how to use Snapchat. It's an age thing.More now on our breaking news out of the US. Three men are dead after government went on a shooting spree in Fresno south-west of San Francisco. Ash wants me now. Where is the suspect?

Another horrific random act of violence. This man is in police custody after going on a shooting rampage in Fresno in California, killing three men. Police were responding to gun shots being fired, they say that there were 16 rounds fired just in the space of a minute and that's when he allegedly killed the three men. The lease were able to tackle into the ground, and this when he reportedly shouted Allahu Akbar but police are saying it is still an ongoing situation and they are not convinced it is terrible related, but it has been referred to the FBI -- terror related. This man has been identified as Corey marmot. He is wanted for another murder, shooting dead a security guard at a motel just as ago and is on the guard -- -- run for that. Police are still trying to work out the motives for that.

Companies bringing in
foreign workers could be taxed after the government abolished
the controversial 457 visa program. Political reporter
Olivia Leeming is in Canberra. Olivia, the Prime Minister
wants to make sure work goes to Australians first?

He was to make sure voters know that there is a priority when it comes to jobs. He has listen to their concerns about foreign workers taking a local work. It's a similar sales pitch that we saw gain traction under Donald Trump. 457 The will be replaced by two visas, one but 4 to 144. They will need to have better English. There will be stripped apart to residency and fewer types of jobs that are allowed to fill. Union say this is a rebranding of the old scheme, and it won't stop foreigners being hired on cheap wages for jobs that Australians could do. It has been welcomed by business groups as long as genuine skills shortages can be filled. Some IT companies have raised concerns that they might struggle to do that under the new scheme. The government has confirmed that companies could be charged to bring in foreigners, how much will depend on their size, and the money would go to a fund to train Australians in certain skills. We won't know the details and we see the budget handed down next month.

There are reports that an Iraqi
military unit with Australian
and American advisors has been hit by a gas attack near Mosul
in the country's north. It's believed Islamic State could be behind
the mustard agent attack. 25 Iraqis reportedly required
medical treatment but none of the advisors
were hurt. It's the second chemical attack
in two days. The Australian War Memorial
has gone on an undercover mission to buy back
two original gravestones of our World War II heroes. Seven News reporter
Jessica Dietrich is in Sydney. Jess, who was selling them?

It was a memorabilia collector who reckons he picked them up at a rubbish tip about 25 years ago in the small town in country New South Wales. The Australian War Memorial's Director Brendan Nelson caught wind of the fact this man was holding a private auction, and he sent a staff member, according to reports, to the option to buy them for just over $300. They were meant to have been destroyed. They used to sit on the gravesites of two men who served in World War II, and both received George Cross recipients. The supposed to be destroyed. This really has shocked the The Australian War Memorial two Director, particularly so close to Anzac Day. They can't believe that anyone would try to profit in this way.

The owners
of a wedding dress boutique are counting the costs
this morning after a fire consumed
their store, near Brisbane. Live to Sunrise reporter,
Bianca Stone, in Ipswich. Bianca, can any of the dresses
be saved?

It's very unlikely. Take a look at this dress is to us. It is charred and smoke damaged. Horrific image throughout the entire store. There were 180 wedding gowns here. Manikins have been melted, shopfitting is piled into a mess. The fire started around midnight in the back of the store in a fuse box and spread throughout the shop. Cancel cameras captured smoke billowing from the front doors, when the alarm was race. The owners rushed down to find the dreams up in smoke. Chris Stewart is the owner of the store. He was a miner for 20 years, before opening this store with his wife. He is devastated by what happened.Our breaking. You work so hard to get something, and in the blink of an eye it is gone. You have to start over again. I thought sorry for the ladies that we had dresses for that were in the back of the shop. They were all destroyed. We had to replace those, and that will be the first thing we order today.The good news is he will be replacing those dresses, and none of those were needed for weddings this weekend. Chris does have a sense of humour, he says there will be a fire sale here at the store and people should come down and get them while they arehot. (LAUGHS). It's good he's keeping his humour.

Underworld figure
Roberta Williams has received death threats from the man who killed
her husband, Carl Williams. Sunrise Correspondent
Nathan Templeton is in Melbourne this morning. Nathan, these threats
have come from behind bars?

It is a worrying reminder that even though most of the key players are dead or behind bars, there are still a few Embers burning from Melbourne was make underworld war. Matthew Johnson is still a maximum security prison at Baal in prison. He maintains in the children's because he was planning to kill him. He maintains that line of defence and now is using some menacing tactics to pursue it. According to Herald Sun, he has sent death threats to Roberta Williams. He is trying to pressure Roberta into testifying that, Carl had plotting to kill Johnson. If Roberta did make the testimony, it could open the door for Johnson to appeal on the grounds of self defence. Members of Johnson's notorious gang Members of Johnson's Notorious Gang resident Of War have terrorised the family. In one bungled attempt, a policeman was shot. You have to remember that Roberta has five children. Police are concerned that if this does escalate, innocent people get caught in the crossfire.

Police are hunting two thieves who stole
86 gold and diamond rings from an Adelaide jewellery store. Seven News reporter
Gertie Spurling is in Adelaide. Gertie, are police any closer
to finding those involved?

Not yet.

Not yet. They have released images of two of the suspects involved in yesterday's raising daylight robbery. Police said happened at 11:15 AM at the shopping complex. Two men walked into the shopping centre, went up to the jewelry store, and one of the men had a large rock and used it to smash a glass window. The pair then stole six golden rings. They then ran from the store to the car park where an accomplice is waiting. They got into the vehicle and drove off and have not been seen since. Police hope that anyone who witnessed the crime mistake comes forward with information about the whereabouts. The total value of the stolen goods is expected to be thousands of dollars. Police are keeping an eye on local stores nearby, and on the store to see if anyone is trying to the stolen goods.

Athletes will be rushed down the shoulder of

would otherwise be held up because of late athletes. British Prime Minister
Theresa May has made a surprise announcement. calling for a snap election
to be held in June. Seven News Europe correspondent
Cath Turner is in London. Cath, is she confident
she'll win?

Theresa May is a pretty savvy audition. She would not have made a decision like this if she was not fairly sure should be returned to power. If the polls are anything go by, she will do that easy. The Conservative party is enjoying a massive lead over the opposition. Theresa May was not elected prime ministers. This is her first time that should be asking UK to vote for her. Theresa May said she wants a stronger mandate to negotiate Brexit over the next two years. Division in Westminster will risk our ability to make a success of Brexit, and it will cause damaging uncertainty and instability to the country. We need a general election we need one now.The prime and is to's critics say this is not about credit's, they say Theresa May is putting interest above the national interest. They say she wants to destroy Jeremy Corbin, who is a weak leader, and many commentators are predicting his demise. The UK was not set to go to the polls until 2020, so in order to break the five-year government term rule, Theresa May needs to support tooth as a parliament. Shall go to the House of Commons on Tuesday for the vote. It is likely to pass, and from there it is seven weeks until election day. Anything can happen on the campaign trail.We do know that.I wonder if it will be as interesting as the US.Never.Sam Mac is enjoying the Melbourne comedy Festival.

Great to catch up with Will Anderson who is celebrating 20 years at the festival.It is incredible I haven't got a better job yet.I want to show a photo of you and the coach of the Western Bulldogs, he went to see or show last year. What happened directly after? Thatthey won the premiership. He handed me a sample all and I said to him he better when the premiership so this is where something and he looked me in the eye and said, keep it safe. I believe that was a moment.You are the man. You felt pressure when he's at your gig?I tried to get inspirational messages into the show and I want to turn it into a pre-game address. As Will Anderson set at a show the other night that sees mostly I'm making jokes about how Murphy is better in the backline. It's a weird routine. This is your forecast.

A nanny who was looking
after Maddie McCann on the day she disappeared has broken her silence, and described what she saw
in that Portuguese hotel almost ten years ago to the day. The immediate panic of Kate
and Gerry McCann was profound. She says, Kate was crying,
but almost in a catatonic state,

The unnamed nanny was critical
of the Police response, noting how the crime scene
was quickly contaminated. I know I didn't step into
that apartment, but pretty much
everybody else did. There was nobody there to say,
"We need to lock this off now". She also noted how dangerous
the hotel was, saying the nannies were given
rape whistles and told not to go outside
after dark. And of the missing
three-year-old, she says Maddie was
slightly shy, very sweet. Not loud or precocious. Former Scotland Yard detective
Peter Kirkham joins us live from London. Peter, good to see you again. Are you surprised by anything
the Nanny says in this interview?

Not really. This not much in their that isn't consistent with what's in the public domain. We have to remember that, she has spoken to the media for the first time, but it appears that she spoken to police when they investigated and reviewed the case over the last couple of years. I don't believe there is anything that the police don't know.Was this a dangerous resort?I don't know. The police in Portugal would be the best place to give an assessment on that. It's difficult from afar to make an assessment of the danger of a particular place. Was been described though, it sounds like the sort of thing that advice has been given, issues that arise, in other places around the world where young people go in their late teens and early 20s to get involved with the tourist scene, and we know that young men and women can come to harm in the circumstances, where they're partying and working hard. Very different from the rest to a three-year-old child.10 years on. Will we ever know what happened? To police ever give up, or do they keep cases on the back burner?As far as the UK police are concerned, they won't close the case entirely. They will bring the active phase of the investigation to a close at some point. I anticipate sometime this year. The latest extension of this case doesn't indicate there's much more to be done in terms of leaves that will take them anywhere. It will be a case of, if new information comes to light it will be acted upon if necessary. Otherwise, may be periodically 3 to 5 years it might be reviewed, and they might give the case another shake.Thanks for joining us.

VOICE-OVER: James Blunt
joins Sunrise for the ultimate breakfast
party. The surprise Aussie stars - all live from Melbourne
on Sunrise next week.

Good morning, Brisbane. 26 for you today
and possible shower later on. The Gold Coast - a shower or two today and
a top of 25 in your neck of the woods. Sydney - 24 today and a possible shower
this afternoon. Melbourne, a bit foggy
in some parts this morning but that will clear. A top of 26 expected. Adelaide, a balmy 31
expected today and a shower or two. And a beautiful sunny day
for you, Perth. 25 the top. Here's Kochie. In the Sunrise Newsfeed
this morning, former Prime Minister Tony Abbott
is refusing to be silenced, despite calls from
some Liberal colleagues to keep quiet or quit Parliament. My job, as long as I'm
in the Parliament, is to be the best possible
local member. But as an ex-Prime Minister, I have an absolute right,
and sometimes a duty, to speak out on important national
and international issues. And that's certainly
what I intend to do. Let's bring in Melissa Hoyer
from News.com.au, Olympian Leisel Jones, and Jackie Frank
from Pacific Magazines.

Does Hebrew have a right to do it? I don't think he has a duty, he can say what he likes, but it is a destabilising. The government needs at this point to have stability. When you have someone like this who is incredibly right of the party saying what he has, he has supporters obviously, but it is the most destabilising thing for a government that is going through such a tough time. He can say what he wants, but he hasn't the duty to say it because he is the ex-prime minister.Turnbull did it to him. Does this wash with us? Do we need to stop making it about them and their power trip?I wish politicians would do less of this and a bit more of this. They certainly have a right and I like it when discussions get us closer to a result or somewhere we need to be or is a voice of the people, but it is certainly not when you are attacking someone else. We need to have influence in our country and get results that we really need.He says all he wants is to make sure that the liberal stay in power. He is not going about it the right way, is he?He wants the top job back. He believes he is John Howard. He thinks he can be resurrected to leader.To turn up and say that he is not white and ting. You only get half an hour on live television last night and he is a white ant. It frustrates us all. Prince William released a video about mental illness last night with Lady Gaga.It reminded me how much my mental health changing changed my life.I really felt this was such an important area throughout all our charitable work whether it was veterans, homelessness, addiction, most of it seemed to stem back to mental health issues.He pulls in the big weeks. He makes the Royals so relevant to the next generation. And to have the likes of Lady Gaga and Harry who has come out this week to say that yes, he did have issues about his mother's death, at least these people are relevant. There is nothing like people getting on the bandwagon when they haven't been through it. It if he can get gaga to talk like that, great.What I think is incredible here is that there is a huge issue with depression and mental health illnesses, but to have somebody like Harry come out the as we know men don't talk about it, and there is a huge issue, especially in this country, with men not speaking out. He is macho, he has been in the army, he has done all that and he is a Royal. Using Lady Gaga as the marketing tool, but to see a man with such a profile to come out and say that they have issues is giving hope and the stigmatising the issue for those of men out there. If you have issues, please, there are places to get help.I agree, and they are other two perfect people to speak about mental health. A lot of young people assume because they have lots of money and big houses and a lot of friends that they are popular and not unhappy, and I think they certainly do have mental health issues like the rest of us. They are totally like us. I totally agree that men speaking out is so important.Totally agree. Have a look at this new automated checkouts being rolled out across Japan. They don't only scan the prices but also bag them for you. Look at that!What happens to the eggs? What happens to the eggs, Kochie? Do they get squashed?Do you carry around the pair doesn't get squashed in the bag? My mum does that.You have two separate the frozen things.Imagine walking around with the bag and the basket that has the thing that falls out. They will fall out all over the place because they will malfunction. You know what, we want to do everything so quickly, and shopping is one thing. Movie we should just breathe and say, "OK, I am allowing myself half an hour for this". That would be a nightmare. It would freak me out.We are one step closer to robots taking over the world and we are happy about it. You know what would be brilliant? Don't pack it for me, just cook it and put it away.That is called a Mac.The list is endless.

Ahead on Sunrise - something borrowed,
something burned. Fire rips through
a Brisbane wedding dress shop, leaving dozens of Brides
in doubt. The hotels offering
more than just a room.

It will get you naked.

For most people, the idea of getting naked
and posing in front of a stranger is too much to bear. But a hotel chain is trying to make the process
a little less daunting using state of the art
technology. Sunrise correspondent
Nathan Templeton has tried it out.

Wait a second! Nathan, what?Well, there is something about being in a hotel room that makes you feel a little bit more risque than normal. It is called the arts series group. We did have to use a wide angle. Oh! The Art Series Hotel group is encouraging people to get an intimate drawing done but have removed the awkwardness of being nude in a room with an artist that you don't know.

Jack, I want you to draw me
like one of your French girls, wearing this. It's one of the great lines
in film history. Wearing only this. But while Kate Winslet
might have boldly bared all in 'Titanic', in real life, the thought of stripping down
and being sketched in the flesh is simply terrifying for most. I would have been definitely
too scared to do it without this. This is the 'No Robe' campaign - a solution for people who would like to have
an intimate portrait done, but feel too shy to pose in front of someone
they've just met. Guests that are playing along
with no robe have the ability to have
their own life drawing done behind closed doors, so they're in the privacy
of their own room, they've got
no-one else watching them, they're using the latest
technology to participate. Using this specially-mounted iPad
as a camera, guests can set up
in whatever position they want, and use a remote clicker
to take photos of themselves. Once they get a shot they like, the image is securely sent off
to a professional artist, who then begins re-creating it
as a drawing. You're really safe
and comfortable because you're in your own room,
essentially. You can do
whatever you want. You can take as many photos
as you like and keep re-shooting it if you're not happy
with what you got. And I think it's just getting to choose body positioning
as well and highlight
your best bits. And it not only the subject
that feels more at ease. It also helps the artist, who no longer has to manage
any awkwardness their muse may be feeling. I think its confrontational
in a way and this would relieve
that confrontation and makes it easy. But in the age of cyber hacking
and sex tapes, there's one glaring question. So people will obviously
be concerned about privacy and security. How do you guarantee it doesn't
end up in the wrong hands? Guests can definitely
have total satisfaction that this is all done
very private. The images taken from the room
are secured and transferred
via an encoded link and those encoded links
can't be downoaded or can't be copied
to any other files. And as soon as the artists
have used them, they're simply destroyed. It should really take off, because it's a selfie in a way, and then because I'm doing it, it turns into a someone-elsie,
which is fun. It's the ultimate selfie,
really. It all sounded like so much fun, I decided to put the hard word
on my camera man. Billy, I want you to draw me
like one of your French girls. What do you say? Come back! come back! Fine, I'll do it myself.

Oh, no!I sincerely apologise to our viewers.That is awful.It was awful, I am sorry. The campaign starts on May 1. It is $40 and you get your drawing sent out to you. It takes about a week. I know you're not listening to anything I'm saying because you can't get to the visual out of your head.The pillows.The other thing about these hotels is they have a gym, and I think I better head there right now.What else would you do? How long have you had the room for? About 10 minutes.You can book them by the hour.OK, OK. That is a lot of fun.Apparently.

Up next,
we'll check the news headlines.

Three men are dead after a gunman went on
a shooting spree in Fresno, a city 300km south-west

Iraqi troops are believed to have been hit by an Islamic State
