You never think something like this would happen to me but it has The rage just went through me when I saw what had happened to him. And it's not something he did to himself, it's something someone had done to him. Daniel and his family want tougher laws, specifically to cover attacks with glass. In WA, attacks using weapons - glasses, knives or even guns are covered by a charge of grievous bodily harm. There are no specific laws to cover attacks using weapons.

Queensland now has new laws to stamp out glassing attacks. There, pubs and clubs can be banned from serving bottle or glasses if they have a history of violence. A 25-year-old man has been charged with acts intended to cause grievous bodily harm. That carries a maximum of 20 years in jail. Daniel Paindelli says his attacker deserves jail time. It will ruin his life but it's ruined my life.

Nine men have turned themselves in to police after we showed you security pictures yesterday morning

of a violent brawl at a central Melbourne train station. Some of the young men weren't keen to again appear on camera after leaving police headquarters. Their ages range from 16 to 20. They've been charged with affray and will appear in court in September.

A rat plague at Sydney's world-famous Circular Quay is threatening to scare off international tourists. The rodents have been spotted during the day in numbers not seen for a century. Not many tourists arrive in Sydney these days expecting to see kangaroos in George Street but they don't count on this either. It's become worse over the last few years, unfortunately. The rats are running riot at Circular Quay and The Rocks

in numbers rarely seen since the early 1900s. Hundreds of the bloody things down the other end, all night - rats, mice, the whole lot.

It's feared Sydney's world famous gateway is about to become an international embarrassment. To have a sewer system generating big rodents as we have here is not a good advertisement around the world for tourism. We'd prefer the kangaroos back.

This letter from the Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority refers to the need to eradicate the vermin: Normally, you can see them running in and out of the restaurants. There's a lot of garbage around the place that needs to be looked after. This park at Circular Quay is a favourite spot for tourists taking in what appears to be Sydney's postcard perfection but what they don't know is that under the ground here is the site of a major rat infestation.

The last thing we want is our tourists to be nibbled at or chased around Circular Quay by large rodents. The tourists are there with their feet up on the benches. And homeless people sleeping rough at the Quay have one eye open. He came in underneath me blanket, I nearly... ..poor old Pommy nearly had a heart attack. (INAUDIBLE) Baits are proving ineffective - many rats are just too big for the traps.

Hollywood heart-throb Ashton Kutcher has thrilled fans in Melbourne overnight at the premiere of his new movie, 'Killers'. The star says he's loving his time in Australia. There's great places to go, there's great things to do and, you know, amazing food but the people are spectacular. In 'Killers' Kutcher plays an assassin who finds love and domestic bliss until he becomes a target.

Now for your first look at Wednesday's weather. The chance of a brief shower for Hobart. Fine, sunny and windy again in Darwin.

Coming up on 'Sunrise' at 6:00am - Aussie singer Vanessa Amorosi chats to Molly Meldrum. But next on Seven Early News, the YouTube fight that's caused outrage in the States. And the next Billy Elliot discovered in the UK.

A video posted on YouTube showing two girls fighting has sparked outrage in the United States. The disturbing video

of a 13-year-old bashing an 11-year-old girl is made even more shocking after revelations the older girl's mother watched the brawl.

WOMAN: It's very, very heartbreaking to see another mother watching children fight like this and basically, is like, this is OK to do. This is not OK to do. The mother eventually broke up the fight.

The stories we're following on the Early News - US actress Lindsay Lohan has started her 90-day stint in jail, sparking a media frenzy. But she may be out in just a quarter of that time. Julia Gillard and Tony Abbott hit the campaign trail again today ahead of their head-to-head debate live on Sunday night. And police in Sydney are searching for two men after a violent home invasion in the city's west.

Now it's over to Mark Beretta with all the day's sport. Thanks, Nat. Good morning. Richmond midfielder Trent Cotchin will be out of action for four weeks after failing to have a charging ban downgraded at the AFL Tribunal overnight. The 20-year-old rolled the dice in a bid to have the suspension reduced, but came up empty. Richmond's Trent Cotchin risked missing a month of footy by taking his case to the AFL Tribunal, and paid the price.

Yeah, obviously, very disappointed with the outcome. Cotchin's hit on Sam Wright was ruled to be high, of high impact and reckless, rubbing the 20-year-old out for four weeks. It's not all bad for the Tigers, with Coleman Medal leader Jack Riewoldt pledging his loyalty to the club.

I'm happy Tiger and for life, I reckon. Things aren't as rosy at Essendon

but under-siege coach Matthew Knights insists he's not in the firing line.

I'm not here to engage in any nonce

sns about whether -- nonsense about

whether I will be coaching or not

coaching, it is out of my control. Questions are also being asked of Brisbane mentor Michael Voss. The Lions have won just once in three months and skipper Jonathan Brown has challenged his side to salvage some lost pride.

We need to be able

We need to be able to have that

trust and respect in each other, at

the ends of the six weeks and to

know that each other, we have all

got each other's back out in the field. There's no let-up for the Lions, who tackle Geelong at Skilled Stadium on Saturday. The Gold Coast is set to make a play for Melbourne superstar Greg Inglis

with the help of Queensland's former Origin greats. The Broncos are banking on a third-party deal funded by the FOGs, to sign Inglis.

But FOGs boss Gene Miles says the same deal is available

to all Queensland-based NRL clubs. While Brisbane remains favourite to recruit Inglis, the coach is ignoring the hype. If it happens, it'll be a positive. If not we're happy with where we're heading. At Cronulla, Ricky Stuart's successor, Shane Flanagan, has put his underperforming players on notice.

The new head coach will use the next seven weeks to decide who he wants to keep for next year.

Wallabies fly-half Quade Cooper is bracing for a fiery initiation when he makes his first run-on appearance in a Tri-Nations match on Saturday night against South Africa. The Springboks are certain to target the Wallabies playmaker and Cooper is fully prepared for a tough night in front of his home fans at Suncorp Stadium. Especially

Especially having a big, fast and

physical background, I am sure I

have to bring my shoulder pads this weekend. Prop Ben Robinson, lock Nathan Sharp and half-back Will Genia are all back from injury for the Wallabies.

Lance Armstrong has been denied a fairytale stage win overnight in his final Tour de France. Armstrong was one of the first riders to attack during stage 16 and was always among the leading riders.

The American loomed to win but was denied

by Frenchman Pierrick Fedrigo.

France is trying to win the day but Pierrick Fedrigo is heading for the

third, the stage of the Tour de

France, he won the cap, he won the

toss and now he wins the pro. Alberto Contador was again booed while receiving the leader's yellow jersey He's eight seconds ahead of Andy Schleck.

Cruiserweight world champion Danny Green has promised to punish Paul Briggs after the challenger weighed in heavy for tonight's title fight in Perth. Briggs came in more than 3kg above the agreed 84kg weight limit. Green could have called the fight off but instead plans to vent his frustrations in the ring. It's very unprofessional. It's very disrespectful. Tomorrow night, I'm going to punish Paul Briggs - punish him bad. Injured WA footy stars Michael Barlow and Mark Nicoski

were interested onlookers at yesterday's weigh-in.

There is some fighting word to start

the day, Nat, more sport in Sunrise later. Thanks, Beretts

Time for a weather check now - southerly winds will bring a few brief showers to Victoria and coastal New South Wales but a large high over the Bight will bring generally fine conditions across the rest of the country. Around the capitals - Brisbane will be fine with some high cloud.

Isolated showers will continue in Sydney. More isolated showers for Melbourne. The chance of a brief shower for Hobart. Adelaide, mostly fine and partly cloudy.

Fine, sunny and windy again in Darwin. Finally, three Norwegian daredevils have taken the plunge, BASE-jumping off a mountain in Norway. The daring leap was recorded by helmet-mounted cameras,

showing just how close they came to the jagged rocks. It was all a warm-up for an almost 2km high jump in Greenland. This time their cameras pointed backwards, to see each other's jump. And that's Seven Early News for this Wednesday. I'm Natalie Barr. Stand-by now for 'Sunrise'.
