Chris Morris reports on the Syrian refugees who have sought Santry in

:00:00.:00:15.

Bulgaria but finding life tough. Hello and welcome to the look ahead

:00:16.:00:20.

to what the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. With me to do that are

:00:21.:00:29.

some familiar faces, Lynn Faulds-Wood and Clarke Carlisle.

:00:30.:00:32.

Just before we talk to you, let's have a sneak peek at what the papers

:00:33.:00:36.

are bringing us on Sunday. The Independent has news of a possible

:00:37.:00:40.

treatment for Parkinson's disease and heart disease. The paper says

:00:41.:00:45.

the key could be human skin. We will be talking about this later, as Nick

:00:46.:00:51.

Clegg calls for a debate on Britain's drugs policy, and the

:00:52.:00:54.

picture shows George Clooney promoting a new range of ethical

:00:55.:00:57.

clothing. The resignation of Immigration Minister Mark Harper

:00:58.:01:01.

whose cleaner turned out to be an illegal immigrant leads in the

:01:02.:01:05.

Sunday Times. The mail on Sunday headlines what it calls a huge data

:01:06.:01:11.

security breach at Barclays Bank. Claims that keys were stolen at the

:01:12.:01:14.

Hotel where Madeleine McCann was staying make the lead in the Sunday

:01:15.:01:18.

express. The Sunday Telegraph has a picture of the seven-year-old boy

:01:19.:01:23.

who has died in Surrey, one of the areas hit by flooding. A real mix of

:01:24.:01:33.

stories. Every paper different. The Sunday Times leads on a story that

:01:34.:01:36.

could have gone on for days, possibly weeks will stop that was if

:01:37.:01:44.

Mark Harper had not resigned. He had to resign because his own employer

:01:45.:01:49.

-- law says people have to check the paperwork of people they employ, and

:01:50.:01:53.

landlords as well. If he managed to get it wrong, how can they check?

:01:54.:01:58.

GPs are also supposed to be may be getting involved in checking status.

:01:59.:02:03.

Mark Harper had to resign, because how could he not? He was the guy

:02:04.:02:10.

that the vans were driving round London, saying if you are illegal,

:02:11.:02:16.

go home before we make you. We had Keith Vaz from the home affairs

:02:17.:02:19.

select committee on here earlier, and he said that with the

:02:20.:02:23.

replacement, he will bring up the issue that he thinks that it

:02:24.:02:30.

highlights that it's too, located. -- too complicated. This is a man

:02:31.:02:36.

hoisted by his own petard. If he is placing expectations on business

:02:37.:02:40.

owners up and down the country and he can't get it right himself, it

:02:41.:02:47.

just shows how unfair a burden it will be to expect every business man

:02:48.:02:50.

and woman up and down the country to be able to do the same. He said

:02:51.:02:55.

himself here that essentially he's a victim of a criminal activity, and

:02:56.:02:58.

he's gone to extreme lengths to make sure all of the paperwork is right

:02:59.:03:03.

and his employees fall under his own regulations. And it has proved nigh

:03:04.:03:09.

on impossible for him to do it, so how does he expect everybody else to

:03:10.:03:16.

do it? If we had said we checked the paperwork in 2007 and I lost the

:03:17.:03:19.

paperwork you gave me, then when I joined the Cabinet, this is him

:03:20.:03:24.

speaking in 2010, I thought, will I check it, no. Then when I became the

:03:25.:03:29.

Immigration Minister I decided again but I wouldn't check it. That is not

:03:30.:03:36.

very thorough checking to me. We required a higher standard on

:03:37.:03:43.

Watchdog. Will we see him back again? David Cameron says the door

:03:44.:03:48.

is firmly open. It might be, but it won't be for a while. It sends a

:03:49.:03:54.

terrible message to the country. If a minister can't get it right, we

:03:55.:03:58.

can't go off on you if you get it wrong either. The Sunday Telegraph,

:03:59.:04:05.

picture of the boy who has died in Chertsey in Surrey. The police have

:04:06.:04:09.

told BBC News this evening that it's unlikely to be linked to the floods

:04:10.:04:12.

but they're not able to say while the investigation is continuing.

:04:13.:04:16.

There is a question over pumps that the family used to get water out of

:04:17.:04:22.

the basement. It also says in the article that 17 people are ill in

:04:23.:04:25.

the area, so something horrible has happened to make 17 people ill. It

:04:26.:04:33.

was not long ago that Radio 4 had a report last week from some of the

:04:34.:04:36.

flooded areas where swapping had taken place of a playground, and the

:04:37.:04:41.

amount of bacteria that was in the playground from the floodwater could

:04:42.:04:46.

cause extreme cases of gastroenteritis, and this could stay

:04:47.:04:50.

there for months. It's very worrying. It's very worrying. What

:04:51.:04:55.

we have to be care of -- careful of is that you almost get like a

:04:56.:05:00.

sympathy saturation. You get this in times of natural disasters around

:05:01.:05:04.

the world. Its prominent for a short period of time and then it drifts

:05:05.:05:07.

away from the public consciousness because life rolls on, but what

:05:08.:05:11.

actually is going on, these homes have been flooded for months now.

:05:12.:05:17.

How are the people in the Philippines getting on? Exactly.

:05:18.:05:23.

When we see the death of a young innocent lad, such a tragedy, we

:05:24.:05:28.

need to make sure it's not just the visible threat of the floodwater

:05:29.:05:33.

but, like you said, the potential infection and illness that we are

:05:34.:05:36.

combating. The police are telling us that all the other people taken to

:05:37.:05:41.

hospital as a precaution, 15 people, including residents from the

:05:42.:05:44.

immediate locality and they are still to determine if there is a

:05:45.:05:47.

link to the floods, but it does highlight the nervousness of what is

:05:48.:05:52.

in the water. And the poor souls in Somerset who are bathed in sewage.

:05:53.:05:56.

What will they have is a legacy? Imagine that in your home. Moving

:05:57.:06:02.

onto the Observer, a picture of George Clooney, but we won't talk

:06:03.:06:08.

about it. Well, I would like to. I bet you would, especially with him

:06:09.:06:11.

ripping his shirt open. More on the floods and the threat to food

:06:12.:06:15.

security. What has become very clear is that because of the flooding on

:06:16.:06:19.

the Somerset Levels has been in rural areas, it's the farm is really

:06:20.:06:22.

struggling. They will find it tough to get back on their feet. I live

:06:23.:06:29.

near the River Thames and it is a tributary that will flood us, we are

:06:30.:06:33.

a street back but there is a tribute either goes behind. If that floods,

:06:34.:06:39.

that will flood the houses -- a tributary goes behind. There is an

:06:40.:06:42.

orange warning, and I understand they want to put the money into

:06:43.:06:46.

towns and buildings and most of the money has gone into urban planning.

:06:47.:06:52.

But the problem they are seeing is this is prime farmland that produces

:06:53.:06:56.

our food that is being swamped and we have to look more to what we are

:06:57.:07:01.

doing in rural areas. It's not just people 's houses and animals in

:07:02.:07:05.

small areas, its vast areas of food being ruined by these floods. We

:07:06.:07:12.

have had farmers in tears on BBC News all of this week as they had to

:07:13.:07:17.

move livestock to other areas, then get it back, absolutely devastating.

:07:18.:07:20.

Also on the front page of the Observer, Nick Clegg saying we must

:07:21.:07:27.

join a new debate in the approach to the war on drugs. He has seen

:07:28.:07:30.

first-hand the effect of drugs in Colombia recently. Again, it seems

:07:31.:07:35.

to be Nick Clegg distancing his party from the other coalition

:07:36.:07:41.

partners. This is a prime example of Nick Clegg positioning himself, as

:07:42.:07:46.

we go to an imminent election, that they are a party in their own right

:07:47.:07:50.

and they retain their values. I think this is a very valid debate to

:07:51.:07:55.

have. You don't normally hear a cabinet minister, Deputy Prime

:07:56.:07:58.

Minister, or anybody running the country in office, talking about the

:07:59.:08:04.

way we deal with drug culture. I think it is brave. People normally

:08:05.:08:07.

don't talk about it until they leave office because it is a hot potato.

:08:08.:08:11.

The cocaine use in this country has tripled, not just a suit this room

:08:12.:08:21.

-- not as in this room, in 20 years. One of the things he was looking at

:08:22.:08:24.

in Colombia is that we are causing horrible problems to happen with

:08:25.:08:30.

cocaine producers, because the ones who produced the drugs and ship it

:08:31.:08:39.

over here are in jeopardy. There is a wider issue with him going to

:08:40.:08:42.

Colombia and see what it causes, there is also the issue that drug

:08:43.:08:47.

use and dependency has here in our own country. It was two or three

:08:48.:08:53.

years ago it was estimated that ?3.9 billion was the cost to the country

:08:54.:08:59.

to treat and maintain addicts and drug dependent users. That is not

:09:00.:09:03.

just in giving them their treatment, but also looking after the children

:09:04.:09:08.

who have to be taken into care. These are numbers that have been

:09:09.:09:12.

nominally falling by fractions of percentages over the past couple of

:09:13.:09:15.

years and it is high time we took a new approach to drug use. But if you

:09:16.:09:21.

look at teenagers trying to get legal highs, that has done damage.

:09:22.:09:26.

There is no easy answer. They sound innocuous at first, but they are not

:09:27.:09:32.

at all. The mail on Sunday, this will shock a lot of people. Barclays

:09:33.:09:37.

account details for sale. Barclays Bank is really from an process --

:09:38.:09:47.

unprecedented theft of data. This is a mail on Sunday investigation. This

:09:48.:09:54.

is an absolute gold mine. What they say in this is that the business

:09:55.:10:01.

they shot in 2011, the financial planning business -- they shot in

:10:02.:10:05.

2011, somebody has taken details from it and at least 27,000 people

:10:06.:10:09.

with health records, mortgages, savings, they know everything about

:10:10.:10:15.

them and they have given it to rogue brokers who are now contacting these

:10:16.:10:18.

people knowing all about them, and trying to get them, without the

:10:19.:10:24.

people realising they have so much information, and flogging them

:10:25.:10:31.

products. It is cold calling as well. I did an investigation on this

:10:32.:10:33.

a few years ago, and it was medical records, but it is staggering how

:10:34.:10:39.

much is available on the black market in data from your medical

:10:40.:10:43.

records, bank details, and they get it usually from you by giving it to

:10:44.:10:49.

a trusted source that is then sold on to a transcribing company and it

:10:50.:10:53.

gets sold on to the black market. The truth is, is it coming as a

:10:54.:10:57.

shock to you that this is coming on -- going on? Personal information is

:10:58.:11:02.

probably one of the most valuable commodities of the modern age, which

:11:03.:11:06.

is why Internet security is so important, and it's why we get all

:11:07.:11:10.

of these targeted advertising banners because companies want to

:11:11.:11:14.

know, and do know, everything we do, and that is why the number of cold

:11:15.:11:18.

calls go up. I am not shocked by this. I am only shocked by the fact

:11:19.:11:22.

it's come from Barclays Bank, because I bank with them and I

:11:23.:11:26.

sincerely hope that they are just a victim of criminal activity. They

:11:27.:11:33.

say they are grateful to the paper. In a statement they say they are

:11:34.:11:37.

grateful for them to bringing it to our intent -- attention. Initial

:11:38.:11:41.

investigations suggest it is isolated to customers linked to the

:11:42.:11:45.

financial planning business protection -- protection is a top

:11:46.:11:49.

priority and we take this very seriously. The customer care line

:11:50.:11:54.

will be hot. But at least 27,000 people have been done, so there is a

:11:55.:12:07.

whistle-blower. They will be back at 11:30pm but stay with us at 11pm we

:12:08.:12:12.

will have more on the extreme

:12:13.:12:13.
