Good morning Melbourne.  

Possible showers in the southeast, less likely elsewhere, tops of 14.

New figures from Sensis have revealed Victorians online shopping habits.

Our most popular purchases are: 

  1. Airline tickets: 57% (↓ 8%
  2. Music: 48% (↑ 12%)
  3. Take-away food: 43% (↑ 12%)
  4. Cosmetics: 23% (↑ 10%)

It seems our state is also the least social, with Victorians the least likely in Australia to shop in a physical store. 

We're also the least likely to have used Airbnb at 7% compared to the national average of 13%. 

A warning has been issued by Victoria's chief health officer after two confirmed measles cases between Melbourne and Ballarat.

A 34-year-old Burwood man is in custody, accused of a dramatic overnight crime spree spanning four hours.

Police say a Toyota Kluger was taken in an aggravated burglary at Tait Street, Newport at about 11:55pm on Monday.

The driver is accusing of crashing into a parked car and fence at Burwood at 1:50am on Tuesday and fleeing on foot. 

Officers believe he was involved in another aggravated burglary in Bellevue Avenue, Burwood East just before 3am before he was finally apprehended at Butchinson Street while allegedly trying to break into a car. 

Betting ads will be blacklisted on roads, trams, trains or buses as part of tight new restrictions being brought in by the Andrews government.

They'll also be banned within 150 metres of our state's schools in the wake of worrying figures showing three quarters of kids think gambling is a normal part of sport.

Minister for Gaming Marlene Kairouz says the push comes from fed up parents and expects it to pass in the next several weeks.

"We've heard clearly from the community that they're sick of these advertisements everywhere they go," she said. "Victorians should be able to go school, work or go to the local shops without being bombarded by gambling advertising."
