Close to 1.4 million workers are expected to benefit from a boost to the minimum wage. The Fair Pay Commission's awarded a $26-a-week increase, taking the minimum wage to 570 dollars. Employers had argued the increase should be limited to $ 12.50.

The clean-up continues after a twister tore apart homes on the far north coast of New South Wales. Lennox Head bore the brunt of the wild weather which uprooted1 trees, lifted roofs off houses and tossed around caravans2. Emergency services spent the day clearing what they could, but there’s still a massive task ahead.

Police don’t yet know why a man went on the shooting rampage in northern England, leaving 12 people dead. Fifty-two-year-old taxi driver Derrick Bird shot dead 12 people around Whitehaven before killing3 himself. There are reports the massacre4 could’ve been sparked by a family dispute.

And the Defence Department has confirmed illegal drugs may have caused a medical emergency in Afghanistan last week. A soldier is being treated in hospital in Germany after being found unconscious in his barracks. Air Chief Marshal Angus Houston says the entire Special Operations Task Force in Afghanistan will be drug tested.
