Victoria's Prime Minister, Daniel Andrews, said he was not surprised by this morning's front page of the Herald Sun, which revisited the fall circumstances that kept him out of work for months last year. Andrews fractured her spine and fractured several ribs when she slipped and fell while getting ready to work at a Mornington Peninsula vacation rental on March 9 last year.

The Herald Sun found the lease and spoke to several unnamed sources who suggested he fell the night before. Asked if he was frustrated with the front page, the prime minister replied:

Not too. Not much that surprises me actually. But look, can anyone tell me what the point of this story is? I really don't know what the point of this story is. Can any of you explain it to me? Will you be interviewing the next ladder?

People can go as low as they want. I didn't come there with them. It's that simple. It was a terrible accident, it was an accident. It's nobody's fault.

Here's the story in question:

'Unfortunate' structural failure at 57 year old coal-fired power station in Queensland Queensland's energy minister described this week's unplanned shutdown of a major coal-fired power plant as "unfavorable", as the opposition called for an independent investigation into the failure.

All four units at the Callide power plant, near Biloela, died on Friday following a series of accidents and equipment failures at the plant. The plant, which can generate up to 1540MW of electricity - roughly 30 percent of the state's overnight demand - is expected to be partially repaired on Wednesday, recovering half of its output.

On Sunday, Queensland's energy minister, Mick de Brenni, said engineers at Callide were working to get it fully back up and running as soon as possible after Friday's "unfortunate" shutdown.
