Detectives have reopened the crime

they have uncovered more skeletal

cannot confirm the contents of

questions or individual

While the Opposition has stopped

short on calling him to resign, it

is demanding the Prime Minister

explain if she has been involved in

any decision. She needs to explain

what she knew, when she knew it,

and what she did about it. Crucial

also is the Labour Party paying his

legal bills, that has helped him

avoid bankruptcy, automatic dismissal from Parliament, and

almost certainly a change of

government. She has to give a full

and candid account of her

involvement in this rather grubby

business. Fair Work Australia is investigating the Credit Card

claims. It is not unknown, it can

be common for people to be

investigated and then have no

adverse conclusions drawn against

them. For now, Craig Thomson and the Gillard government survive.

There were no survivors.

What happened is all too clear, why

it happened is still unknown. The

helicopter carrying the three men

suffered a catastrophic problem

desert, crashing in flames at about

seven last night. ABC colleagues in

shock. There is a great sadness.

This will be one of our saddest

days. The crash scene is remote,

surrounded by water. The three men

on its astonishing seasonal changes.

This is a desert, usually a barren,

forbidding place. Many people

across Australia, particularly

rural Australia, have lost a friend

and a great supporter. The Gary

Ticehurst was a veteran pilot.

During the disastrous 1998 Sydney

We are being warned to prepare for

more damaging winds across Sydney

tonight. A strong gale caused a

tree to pour on to a truck and car

at West Pennant Hills. The truck

driver is in a critical condition.

The SES has received more than 75

calls for help and drivers are

urged to be extra careful on the roads.

A 13-year-old boy has his eyes to

thank for surviving a moment of

madness on a train track in

Sydney's west. He was trying to

cross from one platform to another

but did not make it in time.

could have been much worse. The 30

child is really lucky. -- the 13th-

year-old. At 8:30 last night, a

moment of madness. He went back and

forth across the main western rail

line. It is a foolish act, it is

also very dangerous. The CD bound

train approached Werrington Station.

I heard a freight train come along

and blow its horn. Stranded on the

tracks, the boy did his best to

dive for cover, but was kicked by

the train. Ultimately, he sighs

saved his life. He was not that the

match any managed to scramble on to

the edge of the platform. Dozens of

passengers were delayed and when

shaking driver left to wonder. Our

driver for rethought that he had

killed the child. This is where

more than 9,000 cameras monitor the

hundreds of stations around the

rail network. Luckily for this

young boy, it meant that emergency services could be alerted within

minutes. Paramedics treated the

teenager on the platform before he

was taken to hospital. Police and

Rail staff cannot believe the near-

miss, they say the miracle is a

stark message for parents. You have

to know where your children are and

have some responsibility for them.

A second man has been arrested over

two shootings targeting the Ibrahim

family. It is believed the 26-year-

old is a member of the Hells Angels

bikie gang. He has been released

while further inquiries I carried

out. Shots were fired into a house

in Merrylands and John Ibrahim's

home at Dover Heights.

Prince Harry has described his

shock and anger while visiting

Manchester and meeting some of the

people caught up in last week's

riots. The young royal tour to

business owners and emergency

workers at one of the area's worst

affected by the violence.

Seeing for himself suburbs run over

by rioters, Prince Harry on a

carefully planned visit in

Manchester, that took an unexpected

turn when he decided to meet a

businessman who was caught in the

chaos. Can I come inside? Third in

injured by writers. He had taken a

day off from his helicopter

paramedics and firefighters, who

came under attack as they tried to

put up burning cars and businesses.

Prince Harry's trip was received

well, but as some victims say, it

is a shame that it took such an

event for him to visit them.

It is very difficult to make Kate

Middleton look average, but a

British toymaker has managed to,

creating what critics say are

creepy dolls of Prince William and

figurines are selling for the

princely sum of $160.

In the news ahead - the hunt for a

driver who left this promising

young student with severe brain


A driver's petrol price rage.

With fresh tomato, onions, ketchup and mustard, how could we refuse? Plus you can shake up any Value Meal by turning your fries to Shaker Fries for free.

Relive the taste of another era. ('80s ELECTRONIC MUSIC PLAYS)

A promising young university

student has been left with severe

brain injuries after a hit-and-run

at Padstow in the City's south-west.

The 20-year-old bravely fronted the

media, thanking the people who say

dim and pleading for the driver

responsible to come forward.

It is agonising to watch. A

brilliant student barely able to

walk on his own. The doctor walk on his own. The doctor told me

there is still blight in my head.

20-year-old Jack Xiao suffered a terrible brain injuries after he

was mowed down by a ute in Padstow

on Saturday night. It was just

after six on Henry Lawson Drive, he

had been walking home from the

library. I remember walking across.

I saw a car drive to me. I just got

hit. I cannot remember anything.

The driver did not stop, D not even

break. We are sure that the driver

would know that they had struck

someone. The green walks signal was

flashing when Jack started to cross.

The ute was coming from that

direction. Police are not sure

exactly how fast it was going, but

the impact was enough to throw Jack

several metres into the air. Police

are looking for the driver of a

terrier to highlight, similar to

this one. It is bound to be badly

damaged. We know that people panic.

But why did they panic? Tell us why they left.

The falling Australian dollar is

pushing up the price of petrol.

Economists say the average price

next week will sneak up to it $ 39. -- $1.39.

A motorist in the US has taken his

anger over the price of fuel to its

demands. After refusing to pay, the

man was about to drive off from the

service station in Los Angeles. The

cashier tried to stop him, by

standing in front of his car.

Instead, the driver hit the

songwriter, forcing the cashier to

hang on for his life. Police are

still trying to track down the driver.

When it comes to embarrassing

blunders, they do not get much

better than this. A 60-year-old man

has been mistaken for a pregnant

woman, and send a letter from a

hospital congratulating him on his impending delivery.

John Berry may be accused of having

a little beer belly, but never did

he think he would be mistaken for a

pregnant women. How is the morning

sickness? It is rough, really rough.

To his amazement, he received a

letter in the Mail saying, thank

you for choosing to have your baby

with Western help. By the time I

hit the floor and come back up, I

thought, how could anyone in a

system right Mr John Berry on a

letter and tell you that you are

pregnant. He was hoping for a

letter confirming surgery to kit --

to treat carpel tunnel in his hand.

In a statement, Western help said:

I am not pregnant. I had had a few

beers, put a bit of weight on in

winter. John will not be struck --

swapping his truck for the

maternity ward anytime soon, but he

hopes he will undergo surgery to fix his hand.

This is the call we have all been

waiting for. Andrew Hilditch dumped

in big changes to cricket. He is

out as well. Johnathan Thurston

blows up before tonight's game

against AusSounds Concert. The

basketball friendly that was

anything but. Ooh! And...time! (STOPWATCH BEEPS) (CHUCKLES) That's good! VOICEOVER: That's one way to save money. A Suncorp Bank home loan is another. You'll get an ongoing discount and up to $200 off Suncorp insurance. Isn't that worth the switch?

Wayne Bennett versus Craig Bellamy, Wayne Bennett versus Craig Bellamy,

Billy Slater against Darius Boyd,

there are a lot of juicy match-ups

tonight as the struggling Dragon's

tried to turn it around in

Melbourne. Gareth Widdop, hardly a

big name, but he has a big job.

He has been one of the success

stories but extra responsibility in

the absence of Cooper Cronk. In his

absence, much change tonight? I

cannot remember the last time that

we played without him. He has been

a great player for us. A little bit

of change, but Gareth Widdop has

had a few stints at half-back, he

played a full game, he has had a

couple of part games, so he has

done a good job at training so

hopefully he can repeat that out

there tonight. You are expecting

the very best tonight? Without a

doubt. They are the premiers. We

expect them to bounce back tonight.

We have trained that way. It is

going to be a tough struggle. And

we are going to have a pretty good

ground here. It will be a good

atmosphere for the players. An easy

night to savour. Big double headers.

Equally important, the clash

between South Sydney and a North

Queensland up at ANZ Stadium. Also

tonight, South Sydney facing the

Cowboys. They will be hoping that

Johnathan Thurston's form of

mirrors his effort with the cricket

bat. It is good weather for the

ducks tonight. South Sydney players

about to keep the Cowboys to a low score.

Cricket Australia has delivered the

news that many cricket fans feared

might never come. Andrew Hilditch

has been dumped as chairman of

selectors. His demise came as a

result of the wide ranging review

into the decline of Australian cricket.

He has decided the fate of

Australian cricketers for the past

five years, today he was on the

receiving end of the selectors axe.

The last few years have not been as

successful as he or anyone would

want. Andrew Hilditch has been

badly on the nose since denying all

responsibility for Australia's

disastrous Ashes campaign last

summer. I think we have done a very

good job. The reality is that we

were totally outplayed. The harsh

reality of the Ashes series gone is

that none of us like all enjoy not

being number one. Greg Chappell has

also been dumped as a selector. Tim

Nielsen will have to reapply for an

expanded head coaching role. What

Australian cricket needs his

improvement, it is not changes. A

lot of what I have seen today are

basically changes.

An exhibition basketball match in

Beijing has turned ugly. A huge

brawl broke out with 10 minutes to

go, between an American and Chinese

team. Ironically, the matches were

being played as part of a goodwill

trip to strengthen ties between the

two countries.

The stock market closed sharply

lower today, spooked by big force

in Europe and the US.

The weather is next. A pretty

miserable day.
