Cyclone Larry

After being stuck in Mission Beach during the cyclone, reporter Michael Madigan and I made it to Innisfail just as people were starting to venture out of their homes to inspect the damage. The devastation was quite incredible with trees on all mountains within 100km stripped of EVERY leaf and many buildings were no more than an empty shell. Albina Lazzarich and her mother cowered in their backyard dog kennel as their house (above) was torn apart.

Bye bye Gary Glitter!

I was assigned by the Daily Mail to cover Gary Glitter's trial for "obscenity against children", held in Vung Tau, Vietnam. This was a top assignment and it all ended up working out very well (for me anyway). Glitter was sentenced to three years jail and I hope to be there when he is released!
