  • England stun NZ to win Lord's Test

    England have completed a remarkable fightback to win the first Test by 124 runs, adding to New Zealand's misery at the home of cricket. For three days the Black Caps were on track to lodge just their second win in 17 Tests at Lord's but must now reflect on an eighth loss after their dismissal for 220 with 9.3 overs remaining on the final day. Needing an unlikely 345 off 77 overs to win after dismissing England for 478, New Zealand made the worst possible start when openers Martin Guptill and Tom Latham departed without scoring.

    Patrick Sunill Lilii is on trial in the District Court of Western Australia for the unlawful assault of 32-year-old Zak Harvey outside the Murray Street nightclub in April last year.

  • UK airport expansion threatens to take out entire villages

    The attraction is neighboring Heathrow Airport, which served 73 million travelers last year. Now Europe's busiest airport is proposing to build a runway roughly through the center of town, leveling the ivy-covered brick walls of the Harmondsworth Hall guest house and two-thirds of its homes. A village that traces its history to the 6th century would be forever altered, and some argue even what's left would be uninhabitable.

  • Greece 'has no money' to meet IMF debt repayment

    Greece warned Sunday it has no money to repay the International Monetary Fund on time in June unless a deal is reached with its creditors, in a stark warning that the country could be just days away from defaulting. With the clock ticking down to four more debt instalments from June 5, Interior Minister Nikos Voutsis told Mega TV that the country has nothing left for the IMF in its coffers. Greece's radical-left government has been locked in negotiations with its creditors -- the IMF, the European Union and the European Central Bank -- for the past four months in a bid to unlock some 7.2 billion euros in bailout cash.

  • KiwiSaver providing poor value for money, needs rewrite, Treasury says

    The Treasury recommended a wider review of the KiwiSaver scheme than just axing the $1,000 kick-start payment, arguing it represents poor value for money for the government and has vague aims, according to its regulatory impact statement on the post-budget law change needed to drop the incentive. Reducing incentives would improve the scheme's value for money as wage and salary earners were likely to join anyway because of employer-subsidised schemes and didn't need the kick-start to join, said the Treasury's financial markets manager, James Beard.

  • Rosberg revels in hat-trick after Hamilton pit stop howler

    Given his luck, Nico Rosberg should be excused if he headed to the Principality's casino Sunday night after one of Formula One's greatest tactical errors handed him a memorable and rare hat-trick of wins at the Monaco Grand Prix. Trailing his Mercedes team-mate and world champion Lewis Hamilton with 15 laps remaining, the 29-year-old German took full advantage when an accident prompted a Safety Car intervention that, in turn, led the team to call the Briton in for an unexpected and unnecessary pit-stop. Hamilton re-joined third, on new softer tyres, but was unable to use that performance advantage to pass second-placed Sebastian Vettel of Ferrari, let alone Rosberg who won by 4.4 seconds.
