Sinkhole Swallows Cars, Vic Homes Flooded

A burst water main has washed away the foundations of a Melbourne street, flooding houses and causing a sinkhole big enough to swallow two cars

A wall of water from a burst water main has flooded six Melbourne homes and caused a sinkhole that has swallowed two cars.

Firefighters were called to Port Melbourne early on Tuesday after a 350mm cast iron water main ruptured under Liardet Street.

MFB commander Paul Foster said the torrent threatened to flood 50 houses at one stage.

"It was obviously quite a big failure of the pipe, a big rupture, and it created a sinkhole large enough to swallow one car completely and another car about halfway," he said.

"As well, a number of cars in the street were affected by the water."

He said the water eroded the street's foundations, causing the hole.

South East Water crews had to shut off eight valves - many submerged in the rushing water - to stem the flow.

The water main is thought to have been in use since last century.

Triple M Lock In Eddie, Mick And Luke

Eddie McGuire, Mick Molloy and Luke Darcy re-sign to Triple M for three years

Southern Cross Austereo is proud to announce it has renewed the contract of its top-rating Triple M Melbourne Breakfast hosts Eddie McGuire, Mick Molloy and Luke Darcy for three years.

Some of the country’s most respected broadcasters, McGuire, Molloy and Darcy are an integral part of Melbourne’s number one FM Breakfast show, The Hot Breakfast. Ready to rock on with the station for another three years, McGuire, Molloy and Darcy will continue to deliver their expert knowledge, insider tips and hard-hitting views on everything that matters to Melbourne.

Eddie McGuire, a true media legend, has been with Triple M Melbourne since 2009. In the last five years, he has spearheaded the incredible rise of The Hot Breakfast in the competitive FM radio landscape, and secured it in the coveted top spot – fulfilling his one aim when joining the station.

Bringing an unmistakable passion and pride for his work every morning, McGuire has more than 30 years’ media experience, with an extensive network of coveted contacts that keep him continually ahead of the game.

Mick Molloy is one of the country’s comedy greats and a multi-talented media professional, loved by listeners for his laid back larrikin appeal, sharp wit and acid tongue. This winning combination has led to success also at the box office as a writer and performer, and numerous accolades within the Australian entertainment industry.

Luke Darcy is a former AFL great and successful media personality across both radio and television. Since retiring from the game in 2007, Darcy has co-hosted Network Ten's football programs One Week At A Time and The Fifth Quarter, and Channel 7’s Saturday night coverage and Talking Footy on Monday nights plus more. The father of four is also a key part of Triple M’s AFL call team on Friday nights.

Southern Cross Austereo Melbourne General Manager Cathy Thomas said, "We couldn't be more excited to re-sign Eddie, Mick and Darce to Triple M for the next three years. Every morning, they embody Triple M's unique offering of Sport, Rock and Comedy, along with current affairs that matter to Melbourne and all of Australia. We are thrilled they will remain an integral part of SCA and Triple M, and can't wait to see what new heights they will take The Hot Breakfast to over the next three years.”

Eddie McGuire said, “I’m delighted to continue my long association with Triple M, particularly alongside my colleagues Mick Molloy & Luke Darcy on the Hot Breakfast. The rebuilding of Triple M has been one of the most enjoyable projects that I’ve been involved with in media. 

The confidence shown by Southern Cross Austereo to invest in the Hot Breakfast for another three years, gives us a great platform to continue a unique show which pulls together breaking stories, strong opinion, hyper local content, comedy and great Triple M music.

The other area of tremendous satisfaction for me has been developing a relationship, not only with our listeners, but with our commercial partners. I look forward with the visibility of three years, to working with the Triple M team to further provide innovative sales solutions and continuing to build the business.”

Triple M’s Hot Breakfast with Eddie McGuire, Mick Molloy and Luke Darcy will give back to Victoria’s Tyabb community on Monday broadcasting live from Tyabb Oval from the club 6am – 9am on the morning with a huge outdoor carnival staged for the community, to support the Luke Batty Foundation and the Tyabb Junior Football Club.

Featuring special guest Shane Warne, Triple M’s very own Billy Brownless will also attend the fair, in addition to St Kilda captain Nick Riewoldt and AFL star Joey Montagna.

Held at Tyabb Junior Football Club, the carnival will aim to give back to the community following the tragic death of schoolboy Luke Batty earlier this year, and fulfil a promise made by The Hot Breakfast to his mother Rosie Batty to restore the club to being a place of joy.

The St Kilda Football Club, the Melbourne Stars, Collingwood Football Club and Melbourne City will also hold clinics for the kids on the day alongside an animal farm, fire trucks, slushy machines, mini golf, dunking machine and Coles fresh fruit and water.

If you're promoting a novel called "Meatspace" there is one obvious idea:  Send meat to space.

That’s exactly what author Nikesh Shukla did with a lamb chop, sending it 25,000 metres into the air!

"Imagine if there is intelligent life out there," Mick Molloy joked on the Hot Breakfast.

"They are going about their business and all of a sudden they see a chop heading towards them!"
