1. WINEBOX - There was an emotional moment for Winston Peters as his supporters applauded a judicial review that the conclusions of the Wine Box Inquiry were invalid in law. The decision was made while Winston Peters was giving a speech to supporters in Tauranga. The judges in Auckland said that Sir Ronald Davison made errors in process and should not have reached the conclusions that he did. This does not mean that those involved in the transactions were guilty of legal acts or that the SFO and IRD were guilty of incompetence or corruption. Sir William Birch says this may all lead to further appeals. TVNZ's political editor says that you can't keep Mr Peters down and now has something to campaign on just before the election.

2. MURDER TRIAL - Two secret witnesses says that they were given prison confessions by Scott Watson that he killed Ben Smart and Olivia Hope. The defence attacked the credibility of the men and the accuracy of their testimony.

3. TURKEY - Some good news for Turkey, experts say they don't expect another big earthquake in Turkey, in the immediate future. Thousands have died as authorities struggle to cope with the dead and the potential for disease

4. BAD WEATHER - Gale force winds and rain buffeted parts of the country today. In Wellington it created discomfort for plane and ferry passengers. Gales began in South Canterbury and moved up the country, a bad weekend is expected.
