Hurricane Irma has killed at least eight people on the French Caribbean island territory of Saint Martin. The monster storm is said to have almost demolished Barbuda.

The High Court has ruled the Federal Government's $122-million postal survey on same sex marriage will go ahead. The survey forms have been printed and will be mailed out to households from Tuesday. Opponents had argued the Commonwealth's funding of the survey was unconstitutional.

Perth-based writer and academic Josephine Wilson has won the 2017 Miles Franklin Literary Award for her novel Extinctions — becoming just the fifth West Australian to claim the gong. Australia's most prestigious literary prize — in its 60th year — was bestowed upon Ms Wilson at a function at the New South Wales State Library in Sydney.
