bring you a spot of indoor hockey ahead of the European Championships.

:00:00.:00:15.

Hello. Welcome to our look ahead at what the papers will be bringing us

:00:16.:00:21.

tomorrow. With me are financial analyst Louise Cooper and the editor

:00:22.:00:27.

of the Daily Express. All the papers are in now. We're going to start the

:00:28.:00:34.

Telegraph, leading with a story that half of all convicted sex offenders

:00:35.:00:37.

in England and Wales are apparently being spared a jail term and are

:00:38.:00:40.

being given community sentences instead. The Guardian says the

:00:41.:00:42.

government's flagship benefit reform scheme is being jeopardised by a

:00:43.:00:57.

rift. The Express has done a story of an increased risk of heart attack

:00:58.:01:00.

in people who take a certain brand of sleeping tablets.

:01:01.:01:03.

The Daily Mirror had a picture of a baby pulled from the rubble of a

:01:04.:01:06.

building. Apparently from Damascus, it claims that it was hit by

:01:07.:01:09.

government forces on the day that President Assad gave up his chemical

:01:10.:01:11.

weapons. The Daily Mail says that Channel 4

:01:12.:01:14.

is facing a police investigation over a documentary showing a thief

:01:15.:01:22.

demonstrating how to shoplift. The Times says that harsh side effects

:01:23.:01:25.

as lead to a change in official advice being changed for men with a

:01:26.:01:31.

risk of prostate cancer. It also has a story on the helicopter crash in

:01:32.:01:43.

North Norfolk. The Independent says increasingly heated immigration

:01:44.:01:46.

debates has led to a huge increase in racist bullying in schools. The

:01:47.:01:51.

sun has the headline, hell freezes over. A town in fruit -- Michigan.

:01:52.:02:01.

It has seen temperatures go to -40 Celsius. We're going to start with

:02:02.:02:10.

the only paper that seems to be reporting the helicopter crash

:02:11.:02:13.

earlier this evening in Norfolk. Four killed in a military helicopter

:02:14.:02:19.

crash. The details you have been giving out all night, as you know, a

:02:20.:02:24.

Pave Hawk aircraft, helicopter, it looks like it was coming from a

:02:25.:02:31.

nearby RAF base. Lakenheath. It came down next to Cley next the Sea.

:02:32.:02:37.

Sadly, it looks like for people on board had been killed. This leads to

:02:38.:02:44.

some serious questions to be asked. What I think is quite interesting is

:02:45.:02:47.

it is the only newspaper to break the story on the front page and all

:02:48.:02:52.

of the front pages of the newspapers are completely different. There was

:02:53.:02:56.

clearly no big lead story of the day. From today. Has a broken too

:02:57.:03:04.

late? I think it has broken too late. When these, most of the first

:03:05.:03:11.

editions are done by 9:30pm. Details wise it was very sketchy and was

:03:12.:03:15.

breaking. That is probably the main reason. Do you think you will be in

:03:16.:03:24.

a different edition? There will be in other first editions elsewhere.

:03:25.:03:27.

Maybe they'll make the decision not to change the front page. I think

:03:28.:03:37.

they will be on some front pages. It is a late rating story. -- breaking.

:03:38.:03:48.

I am a financial analyst, I am interested, the decision, how much

:03:49.:03:54.

it costs to change the front page for a newspaper. How they can maybe

:03:55.:04:02.

the? I was intrigued. We have edition times and it is budgeted

:04:03.:04:06.

for. If the press is stopped, that will stop you -- cost you a lot of

:04:07.:04:14.

money. That is budgeted in. We have different edition times at 11:30pm.

:04:15.:04:24.

Then we go to one -- 1:30am. On different days there are different

:04:25.:04:27.

first edition times as well. It depends on how you wanted the -- two

:04:28.:04:38.

disc tribute in. That will feature in some of the later editions. What

:04:39.:04:42.

was interesting, with all the bad weather, it said initial reports

:04:43.:04:45.

said it had crashed into the sea and the RNLI dispatched lifeboats. To

:04:46.:04:53.

say they were there that quit. Sometimes the RNLI gets forgotten.

:04:54.:05:02.

Hats off to them. Indeed. Let's go on to the Independent. Interesting

:05:03.:05:09.

story. Immigration is on the front pages. We had the poll today

:05:10.:05:14.

suggesting the majority of Britons believe there should be a cut on

:05:15.:05:17.

immigration. A big debate about it from all sides, right and left. The

:05:18.:05:21.

suggestion from the Independent is that racist bullying is the result

:05:22.:05:28.

of this heated debate with ChildLine suggesting that children are

:05:29.:05:30.

reporting abuse because of what is going on. 1400 children contacted

:05:31.:05:39.

counselling in 2013. This was up in previous months. You have to go what

:05:40.:05:45.

they're saying. If people are talking about, children talk about

:05:46.:05:49.

about about kids are kids and if someone is different, they get

:05:50.:05:51.

picked on. It does not matter what colour you are. If you are slightly

:05:52.:05:58.

different. Kids repeat what their parents say to them. It reflects

:05:59.:06:02.

what maybe they are hearing in their own environment. As we know, there

:06:03.:06:06.

has been a big political am starting to be a big political hostility to

:06:07.:06:14.

immigration. It is a reflection that children repeat what their parents

:06:15.:06:19.

say. The it is part of human nature. People become people who are

:06:20.:06:26.

different. This is not saying that it is because these people are black

:06:27.:06:30.

or Asian or whatever. It is immigration. Part of the debate that

:06:31.:06:36.

is going on. They are saying that Muslims are being called terrorists

:06:37.:06:41.

or bombers by their classmates. That is not a new comment this year. This

:06:42.:06:48.

has been going on for a furious. After 7-7. I don't understand how

:06:49.:06:58.

this is now that the debate is raging at the moment, this is for

:06:59.:07:03.

last year. Immigration has been high up on the public radar for a few

:07:04.:07:08.

years. Certainly while UKIP have been doing well. At the moment the

:07:09.:07:14.

debate is remains and Bulgarians. This is not about that. We have had

:07:15.:07:21.

five or six years of economic pain and when people are suffering

:07:22.:07:25.

economic pain, as we have seen all across Europe, and even in the

:07:26.:07:28.

United States, you seek to blame somebody else. That is what happens.

:07:29.:07:35.

It has happened through history. When people are unhappy, their wages

:07:36.:07:39.

are not going up, they are losing jobs and they are suffering in the

:07:40.:07:42.

pocket, you seek to blame somebody else. What happens is that the

:07:43.:07:46.

politicians get votes by blaming others. This, to me, is reflected in

:07:47.:07:54.

the greater society with so economic growth and people are feeling

:07:55.:07:56.

wealthier, they will stop blaming others. It would be interesting to

:07:57.:08:02.

know, it is not explicit from the front page, where in the country

:08:03.:08:06.

this is. In London, where my kids go, it is a mixed, conferences and

:08:07.:08:12.

primary school. My son and daughter, a mixed school. I have never heard

:08:13.:08:16.

of bullying that goes on. Name-calling. Not racist bullying.

:08:17.:08:22.

It would be interesting to know if this is further around the country.

:08:23.:08:27.

Outside my son's classroom it says in this class we speak 19 languages.

:08:28.:08:35.

It is something to be celebrated and to be proud of. That the two as you

:08:36.:08:40.

go in the classroom. It says in this class we speak 17 languages and

:08:41.:08:45.

embrace the following fates. If you go to a London school or a London

:08:46.:08:50.

state school, there will be a big mix of children. Maybe I wonder if

:08:51.:08:57.

it is in other areas. You mentioned, Louise, kids hear things at and may

:08:58.:09:08.

potentially repeat racist language in the playground and so forth. Is

:09:09.:09:12.

there any plane to perhaps the lead at the door of us, the media? Ali

:09:13.:09:22.

reporting this story fairly? Are we potentially feeding the prejudices

:09:23.:09:26.

of the public out there who at the moment are feeling, we don't like

:09:27.:09:31.

immigration. We don't know. Maybe people are picking up on the media.

:09:32.:09:38.

The media are only reporting public opinion. The big talk about, the

:09:39.:09:43.

influx of Bulgarians and Romanians, all of the flights, they are booked

:09:44.:09:49.

until next Christmas, they will all come. It did not happen. As has been

:09:50.:09:57.

said, all of the TV, newspapers were sea to anyone turned up. People did

:09:58.:10:06.

turn up. Not many. This is something we will have too much for a few

:10:07.:10:09.

years to get the true figures like we did with the Polish immigration.

:10:10.:10:12.

Going back to what the story was about, that has been in the last

:10:13.:10:17.

month or two, months this is not covering the period and this is

:10:18.:10:20.

about, mainly, muscles reporting they are being called terrorists and

:10:21.:10:25.

bombers. That is not Bulgarians or remains. We have got to be careful

:10:26.:10:33.

we are not feeling this. It is something that we will be keeping an

:10:34.:10:39.

eye on now. Onto the daily Telegraph. A depressing story. We

:10:40.:10:42.

talked about this an hour ago. Half of the six attackers are spared

:10:43.:10:48.

jail. The suggestion is this is to save money. This is figures obtained

:10:49.:10:55.

by the shadow justice secretary and as you say, a depressing statistic.

:10:56.:10:59.

Half of convicted sex offenders, violent criminals and burglars

:11:00.:11:04.

basically avoided prison. They were not sent down. City 5000 criminals

:11:05.:11:13.

in 2013 walked free despite being convicted for rape, sexual assault,

:11:14.:11:19.

grievous bodily harm and robbery. Very depressing statistics and I

:11:20.:11:25.

wonder if this is being reduced to political point scoring and

:11:26.:11:27.

forgetting about the victims whose lives have been devastated. By these

:11:28.:11:35.

crimes. This is information that was cleaned by the Labour Party. They

:11:36.:11:43.

are pointing a finger at the Tories. The Tories hitting back, as they

:11:44.:11:53.

would. Chris Grayling says they are overhauling guidelines. They always

:11:54.:11:58.

say they will have guidelines. -- overhaul guidelines. He also says

:11:59.:12:06.

they will not take lessons from a Labour Party that let criminals

:12:07.:12:13.

leave years early. When the Labour Party. Don't throw things at us

:12:14.:12:19.

because we will throw it back. Back to what we said, they are forgetting

:12:20.:12:24.

the victims. Let's move on to another story on the front of the

:12:25.:12:27.

Telegraph. Allow children to be bored, parents are told. There is no

:12:28.:12:34.

problem to take away the Game Boy, take away whatever it is some

:12:35.:12:42.

electronic thing. Let them contemplate the ruins of empire.

:12:43.:12:49.

Meditate. What parents need is yet more advice on how to bring up

:12:50.:12:52.

children! We have not had enough of that already! This is according to

:12:53.:12:57.

Julie Robinson, the education and training director of the independent

:12:58.:13:07.

association of prep schools. Are! She says you should allow children

:13:08.:13:11.

to become bored because quiet reflective time is just as

:13:12.:13:14.

important. Julie, do you have children? If you do, they are

:13:15.:13:18.

nothing like mine. They are probably in prep school. The lack they are

:13:19.:13:23.

probably privately educated in doing well. When my children get bored, as

:13:24.:13:27.

my four-year-old son has done a lot during the terrible rain. Your Mac

:13:28.:13:32.

are they just wind each other up and it all ends in tears. She says there

:13:33.:13:39.

are too many focuses on after-school activities. This could lead to a

:13:40.:13:45.

generation of anxiety ridden adult. I never did any of that and I am

:13:46.:13:56.

anxiety ridden already. And she is against tiger mothers and again, she

:13:57.:14:00.

is from a prep school and I find it hilarious. It's OK to say to your

:14:01.:14:06.

kids, fail, succeed, whatever. You can handle it, parents, you are

:14:07.:14:13.

doing a great job out there. And on toll Sun. Apparently Hell has frozen

:14:14.:14:21.

over. It's Biblical - Weather that happens in the Bible! I loved this

:14:22.:14:26.

headline you and didn't like it. I thought it was a greathead line. I

:14:27.:14:32.

throw down the rifles and applaud the opposition, obviously it's

:14:33.:14:36.

brilliant. The freak icy blast. But I do believe that Hell, Michigan do

:14:37.:14:43.

regularly freeze over. He is poshing cold water on the story! No, no, I'm

:14:44.:14:48.

just saying - it's great, a great picture of Hell freezing over,

:14:49.:14:51.

because of the polar volunteer text, whatever one of them is! Well The

:14:52.:14:56.

Sun has a helpful explainer - although we weren't quite sure about

:14:57.:15:00.

it - of what is a polar volunteer text so if you are confused it is in

:15:01.:15:05.

the Sun. And my favourite bit is apparently in Chicago's Lincoln Park

:15:06.:15:10.

zoo polar bear Anna was moved indoors because it was too cold for

:15:11.:15:15.

her and she had to go into a heated room. Too cold tour a polar bear!

:15:16.:15:24.

Sometimes the polar vortex has been called a frijd twister. I won't tell

:15:25.:15:30.

you what he said off air! We've all met one of them And we will leave it

:15:31.:15:34.

there! It has been brilliant having you in and looking at the headlines.

:15:35.:15:39.

Stay with us for the BBC news because at the top of the hour at

:15:40.:15:43.

midnight we will have the latest on the US military helicopter crash in

:15:44.:15:46.

north Norfolk which has apparently killed the four crew members on

:15:47.:15:50.

board. So stay with us for that. Now on BBC News it's time for Sportsday.

:15:51.:16:05.

Hello, with welcome to Sportsday. Another defeat for

:16:06.:16:10.

MUTTERING MUTTERING, coming out on top in the

:16:11.:16:14.

first leg of their league cup semifinal.

Back on the Pomle horse, Lewis Smith says he is back in training with an

:16:20.:16:22.

eye on the Commonwealth games in
