player. Plus, we will round up all the day 's action from day one of

:00:00.:00:00.

the Grand National Festival. That is in 15 minutes after the papers.

:00:00.:00:17.

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

:00:18.:00:23.

tomorrow. With the other financial analyst, Louise Cooper. In the

:00:24.:00:34.

Express, it says all the smog hanging around could be a taste of

:00:35.:00:38.

things to come with pollution levels are likely to rise in the future.

:00:39.:00:42.

The Daily Telegraph says MPs conspired to protect Maria Miller

:00:43.:00:47.

over serious censure over her expenses. In the Guardian it claims

:00:48.:00:52.

the average family will be ?1000 worse off every year by the time of

:00:53.:01:00.

the general election. In the Metro, the lights on tablets and mobile

:01:01.:01:03.

phones could be keeping Britain awake. In the Daily Mail, they lead

:01:04.:01:08.

on the smog. It talks about the Government 's failure to improve air

:01:09.:01:17.

quality. We will start with the Express. It is going so well

:01:18.:01:21.

tonight. We'll start with the Express. Smog misery hits millions.

:01:22.:01:30.

A good story for you. On Monday morning when I wake up, there was

:01:31.:01:34.

some dust on my car. I thought, how did that happen? Later on, I find it

:01:35.:01:40.

is from the Sahara and it is still around. We do not know everything

:01:41.:01:45.

about the world. You can still amaze us and cause a huge problems. We are

:01:46.:01:53.

told tomorrow that this cloud will go. We thought it would go away

:01:54.:01:57.

today. What is interesting and amazing is that a third of the

:01:58.:02:03.

country 's 5.4 alien sufferers of asthma have had an attack. For us,

:02:04.:02:09.

we have had older readers. Quite a lot will have respiratory problems.

:02:10.:02:14.

It is a very serious story. We laugh about it. It is hilarious. It is a

:02:15.:02:21.

very serious problem. Three people die of asthma every single day. This

:02:22.:02:28.

is without the toxic smog from the Sahara. It is dust from the Sahara

:02:29.:02:32.

and desist from factories and homes here in the UK. And diesel emissions

:02:33.:02:40.

as well. Talking about the health implications, pretty much all the

:02:41.:02:46.

909 services in those affected areas are reporting increased numbers of

:02:47.:02:53.

calls. `` 999. You love to tease Michael about putting weather

:02:54.:02:56.

stories on the front page of the Express. I have been here when you

:02:57.:03:02.

have done that. I agree. I am not an editor of a national newspaper but

:03:03.:03:06.

he is. I would have put this on the front page. As you said, this story

:03:07.:03:17.

does affect millions. What many people who do not suffer from asthma

:03:18.:03:20.

do not realise, it is a killer illness and it is a very serious

:03:21.:03:22.

illness. You can see that from the statistics.

:03:23.:03:28.

What I particularly like is that David Cameron did not go for his

:03:29.:03:39.

morning ran and Boris Johnson ignored all the experts. I quite

:03:40.:03:45.

like Nick Clegg. You quoted him in the paper as saying, he had not been

:03:46.:03:50.

playing his usual games of tennis because he concentrated on a

:03:51.:03:53.

different game back and forth Nigel Farage. I've thought this was a

:03:54.:04:00.

London centric story to start with. It has spread all over the country.

:04:01.:04:05.

We have got pictures of Liverpool. It is all across the north`west as

:04:06.:04:10.

well. We did worry that it was just around here but it is everywhere. We

:04:11.:04:16.

have all got sore throats. We had a piece this afternoon from the

:04:17.:04:20.

Midlands area and the guy with cystic fibrosis cannot leave his

:04:21.:04:26.

house. I live on a hill in London. You could definitely see it this

:04:27.:04:30.

morning. Sign you are posh, living on a help. You are posh, living on a

:04:31.:04:44.

hill. And interesting story about saving Miller. MPs overruled an

:04:45.:04:50.

official enquiry into the Culture Secretary 's expenses planes. The

:04:51.:04:54.

Parliamentary Commissioner had said she needed to pay back ?44,000 but

:04:55.:05:00.

MPs said she did not. Reading through all the wire and the papers,

:05:01.:05:06.

I have not got to the bottom of it. What I find interesting is that it

:05:07.:05:09.

was not a secret that interest rates were cut. It was pretty much on

:05:10.:05:19.

every single national paper and in very Bedi broadcast news. Either she

:05:20.:05:23.

lived in a sealed box and did not realise interest rates were cut

:05:24.:05:29.

which I cannot believe, or she clearly does not read her bank

:05:30.:05:33.

statements. It is obvious when your mortgage interest rate goes down.

:05:34.:05:37.

She does not bother reading her bank statements. The allegation was that

:05:38.:05:42.

interest rates when damage she continued to claim a certain level

:05:43.:05:47.

for her payments. Either she did not know that interest rates went

:05:48.:05:51.

down... You did not know that? Or, she does not read her bank

:05:52.:05:56.

statements. This is a woman as part of the Government who is getting

:05:57.:06:02.

tough on government spending, cracking down on posterity and

:06:03.:06:09.

supposed to ensure that every penny is spent wisely. All, she delivered

:06:10.:06:15.

he did it. That cannot be the case. She could have been paying down a

:06:16.:06:17.

higher level of interest, couldn't she? Normally you have to tell the

:06:18.:06:31.

bank, I will overpay on capital. You actually have to tell your bank you

:06:32.:06:35.

are overpaying capital. How can you not know that rates were cut 2.5%?

:06:36.:06:40.

That has been the big story in the news. MPs are conspiring to save, in

:06:41.:06:51.

that opinion. We have had this investigation from the standards

:06:52.:06:53.

commissioner and said she would have to pay back 45 thousand pounds. She

:06:54.:07:05.

apologised, apart from the fact she was prevaricating. That is why she

:07:06.:07:11.

has apologised. She has said, I have dealt with the matter. 832 seconds

:07:12.:07:17.

statement of apology in the House of Commons, it is said. The Daily

:07:18.:07:23.

Telegraph push this story initially. They are like a dog with a bone. It

:07:24.:07:29.

was just after the Levinson enquiry and she was the Culture Secretary.

:07:30.:07:33.

They are a dog with a bone because her aide said, you do know she is

:07:34.:07:39.

involved with looking forward to a new press commission, or whatever it

:07:40.:07:44.

is going to be. Therefore, you do not want to print this sort of a

:07:45.:07:52.

story. She was involved in the regulation of the press. It is

:07:53.:07:57.

probably best if you did not investigate. You get the impression

:07:58.:08:00.

the Daily Telegraph will not leave this alone. The Labour Party will

:08:01.:08:08.

not leave this alone. They say she should resign over this. Listening

:08:09.:08:13.

to our deputy political editor, he was saying there are whispers that

:08:14.:08:18.

Mr Cameron cannot lose another one from his Cabinet. `` another woman.

:08:19.:08:27.

Also, she may be reshuffled to the Welsh office but that is just

:08:28.:08:31.

rumour. In the Guardian, heavy drinkers will be allowed liver

:08:32.:08:36.

transplants. This is a very emotive story. The classic one here is

:08:37.:08:44.

George Best. He had a transplant and then died of the illness. This is

:08:45.:08:52.

very difficult. It is very problematic and emotive. Anyone

:08:53.:08:55.

waiting for a liver transplant that needs a liver because it is an

:08:56.:08:59.

illness not of their own fault with look at this and say why would

:09:00.:09:04.

someone with alcohol problems get a liver ahead of me. It is very

:09:05.:09:10.

difficult. They are saying this is just a trial of 20 patients, a pilot

:09:11.:09:16.

scheme. They are saying it is young alcoholics who have not realise the

:09:17.:09:21.

damage they have done to themselves. Once they get a new liver they will

:09:22.:09:24.

then stop drinking and therefore it is worth doing. Now, in this

:09:25.:09:31.

country, we have a problem with signing people up to donate organs

:09:32.:09:34.

as it is. I think this needs to be handled incredibly carefully. We

:09:35.:09:40.

cannot afford to lose public support for organ donation. This is a very

:09:41.:09:50.

difficult decision. It is a trial. The organ transplant service says it

:09:51.:09:54.

is a pilot scheme and it is worthwhile. The reason for this is

:09:55.:09:59.

because there are so many people who are dying of liver disease. It seems

:10:00.:10:05.

as if there are so many people. They cannot leave them. They will say

:10:06.:10:12.

there are so many people who are drinking too much he will get liver

:10:13.:10:19.

disease. You cannot leave them all. The head of the NHS Blood and

:10:20.:10:25.

Transplant service said, we transplant humans and not angels.

:10:26.:10:30.

You are not refused cancer treatment because you smoke. You're not put

:10:31.:10:35.

back together because you skydive. Those with the Bay City get treated.

:10:36.:10:41.

Sky they have tried to stop people from drinking. Certain shops have

:10:42.:10:47.

stopped stocking up of four counts of very strong lager which certain

:10:48.:10:51.

people were going in and it was cheap. They have increased ranges of

:10:52.:10:56.

craft beers and things like that, which have more alcohol in them. You

:10:57.:11:01.

move it from there and it goes over there. It is still fairly cheap. If

:11:02.:11:05.

people want to drink, they will drink. That is the problem. They

:11:06.:11:09.

will need to tackle it and give people like this transplant

:11:10.:11:12.

otherwise there would be huge numbers of people dying. ) it is a

:11:13.:11:16.

pilot scheme and it will be interesting to see what comes out of

:11:17.:11:21.

that story. We will stay with the Guardian. The US created Cuban

:11:22.:11:30.

twitter network to create an arrest. I think they do it for laughs. It is

:11:31.:11:34.

a bit of fun. They have tried everything else. They have created

:11:35.:11:55.

their own form of Cuban twitter. The associated press have been doing

:11:56.:11:59.

some digging on this found out that this was deliberately set up to

:12:00.:12:03.

encourage Flash mobs in the Communist country and social media

:12:04.:12:07.

`based protests. So we will have a Cuban spring. It's a great idea.

:12:08.:12:14.

It's hilarious. They drag up this memo. There would be no mention of

:12:15.:12:22.

the US government involvement, said this member. It will give the

:12:23.:12:24.

appearance of a commercial enterprise. And man was quoted on

:12:25.:12:30.

behalf the US government, Idaho he managed to save this about laughing,

:12:31.:12:34.

and said it was not a covert programme and it was a development

:12:35.:12:39.

assistance programme. They said it was discreet, note covert for the

:12:40.:12:46.

better difference. This is weird than trying to blow up the Dell

:12:47.:12:50.

Castro with his own cigar? It's on a par. They say that's not what they

:12:51.:12:56.

were aiming to do. It will be a comedy Trojan horse. That's so

:12:57.:13:03.

funny. Such a great story. Let's go back to the express. Cracking photo,

:13:04.:13:11.

this. It was the best photo, actually. The Queen and the Pope

:13:12.:13:16.

make all the front pages. They are the most famous people in the entire

:13:17.:13:22.

world. I wonder, I'm God 's representative on earth, no, I am.

:13:23.:13:28.

I'm sure there was. I love the fact Prince Philip is holding the risky.

:13:29.:13:34.

It has to be said, the Pope does have very beady`eyed bunnies looking

:13:35.:13:39.

at that. He's thinking, that's my whiskey. He has got sick of

:13:40.:13:45.

communion wine. Piquancy Balmoral whiskey. The alcohol is from a

:13:46.:13:53.

hamper which was the Queen 's official present to the Pope and

:13:54.:13:57.

included grandad's chutney. Venison and beer. Will she be allowed to

:13:58.:14:07.

give Scotch whiskey, if Scotland votes to leave us? If Alex Salmond

:14:08.:14:12.

allows her into the country to visit Balmoral. OK, the same picture, but

:14:13.:14:17.

a slightly different take on it, actually. No alcohol on the front of

:14:18.:14:24.

the Guardian. Interesting, though, the first foreign visit for three

:14:25.:14:29.

years. Yes, she likes to meet the Pope, and the Queen does that.

:14:30.:14:35.

There's Pope, particularly, Francis, seems keen on these opportunities as

:14:36.:14:40.

well. Hands across the ocean. He has been the good PR Pope. This serves

:14:41.:14:45.

to help him and the Catholic Church change the image that had over the

:14:46.:14:49.

last few years. Relations between the two have improved since Henry

:14:50.:14:54.

VIII because they didn't get on them. They've had a testy

:14:55.:15:00.

relationship recently. You will be back in one hour. Many thanks for

:15:01.:15:06.

that. Stay with us here on BBC News. We will get more on all that high

:15:07.:15:13.

pollution and the problems there. Look at that. That's what it's all

:15:14.:15:18.

about. But coming up next it's time for Sportsday.

:15:19.:15:31.

Hello and welcome to Sportsday. I'm John Watson. On the way tonight.

:15:32.:15:36.

Blackburn Striker Deejay Campbell is one of six players rearrested as

:15:37.:15:39.

police step up their investigation into match fixing. Sunderland are

fined by the Premier League for fielding an ineligble player this
