for the club and the player. Plus, we will round`up day one of the

:00:00.:00:00.

Grand National Festival. That is coming up in 15 minutes.

:00:00.:00:14.

Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers will be bringing

:00:15.:00:22.

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

:00:23.:00:24.

Michael Booker, deputy editor of the Express. Tomorrow's front pages. The

:00:25.:00:31.

Express says all of the smog hanging around could be a taste of things to

:00:32.:00:35.

come, with pollution levels likely to rise in the future. The Telegraph

:00:36.:00:41.

says MPs conspired to protect the Culture Secretary Maria Miller from

:00:42.:00:44.

serious censure over her expenses. The Guardian says Labour claims that

:00:45.:00:49.

by the time of the next election the average family in Britain will be

:00:50.:00:55.

nearly ?1000 more worse. The Metro says lights on tablets and mobile

:00:56.:00:57.

phones could be keeping Britain awake. The Mail leads on the smog

:00:58.:01:03.

and says scientists blamed the government's failure to improve our

:01:04.:01:06.

air quality. The Times says the controversy over Maria Miller's

:01:07.:01:10.

expenses have left a question mark over Parliament's ability to police

:01:11.:01:15.

itself. Vince Cable has warned of a bubble in the housing market in an

:01:16.:01:20.

interview with the Independent. The Miramax is the killer of Milly

:01:21.:01:23.

Dowler has won compensation after he was attacked in prison. `` the

:01:24.:01:29.

Mirror. Starting with what's been leading the news bulletins

:01:30.:01:35.

throughout the day. Smog misery. Experts warn more killer clouds to

:01:36.:01:38.

come. I thought the forecast was that it was going to improve? In the

:01:39.:01:48.

future. OK. Potentially, there could be more. We were told today it would

:01:49.:01:52.

be better but it didn't turn out that way. Things can change. But

:01:53.:01:56.

this is more about the future because of the pollution problems.

:01:57.:02:01.

The diesel we are pumping into the atmosphere. This one has been

:02:02.:02:05.

slightly more freak because we have the perfect storm, the Saharan dust

:02:06.:02:09.

covering everyone's cars and things like that. We have one third of the

:02:10.:02:16.

country's 4 million asthmatics have suffered an asthma attack since

:02:17.:02:20.

Tuesday, with 84% using their inhaler more often. I have a touch

:02:21.:02:25.

of asthma and I have felt a tight chest all week. People who haven't

:02:26.:02:29.

got respiratory problems have noticed a sandpaper feel at the back

:02:30.:02:34.

of the throat. It has been a very serious thing. We've done this

:02:35.:02:39.

story. The Mail and they take, very similar, but they also say David

:02:40.:02:44.

Cameron, who said he wasn't going for a job today, has been criticised

:02:45.:02:48.

because he has dismissed `` dismissed it as a naturally

:02:49.:02:52.

occurring phenomenon. But they say scientists say the health crisis is

:02:53.:02:56.

to do with the government's failure to do with air pollution in this

:02:57.:03:01.

country. They always like to have a bit of a dig. But there's probably a

:03:02.:03:07.

case for that. It's not been high on anyone's agenda. And we can see at

:03:08.:03:12.

this time. The pictures have been interesting. The Daily Mail has

:03:13.:03:17.

chosen to put the lovely Chris Seda on the front page, the potential

:03:18.:03:23.

fiancee of Prince Harry. That I think the pictures are more much

:03:24.:03:28.

impressive. Some of the pictures are truly extraordinary. And not just

:03:29.:03:32.

London. It seems extraordinary they didn't put a picture on the front.

:03:33.:03:36.

They must be able to get on. In a remote you have to have a balance.

:03:37.:03:40.

He wants a pretty woman on the front page. I think that headline gets

:03:41.:03:48.

across the story. We are all aware of the smog. Great pictures! Your

:03:49.:03:56.

paper has some great pictures. People are going out running with

:03:57.:04:00.

face mask song. That is a commitment to fitness. It's almost a fashion

:04:01.:04:07.

thing. David Cameron didn't want to do that. He wasn't committed. Boris

:04:08.:04:13.

Johnson got out there. He was on his bike. Didn't care, apparently. The

:04:14.:04:20.

particles can't get through his hair. Onto the Independent. He has

:04:21.:04:26.

been the doomsayer as far as house price rises have been concerned. The

:04:27.:04:29.

housing bubble worse than before the crash, according to Vince Cable. He

:04:30.:04:34.

has warned that in the 1990s the average price of a home was three

:04:35.:04:39.

times the average earnings and he now says it is about 5.5 times. You

:04:40.:04:44.

have to look differently at the London and south`east market,

:04:45.:04:47.

especially the London market, because quite clearly the date of

:04:48.:04:51.

the rest of the country doesn't show a housing bubble. It's very much a

:04:52.:04:56.

London problem. Made far worse by international investors, buying

:04:57.:04:59.

London property for investment purposes. The other thing a lot of

:05:00.:05:04.

people get wrong is the idea that the recovery is all based on a

:05:05.:05:08.

housing market rubble. That's also not true. If you look at the 80s and

:05:09.:05:14.

90s, the big booms in consumer spending will all driven by people

:05:15.:05:20.

using their houses as cashpoints. They call it equity withdrawal from

:05:21.:05:23.

your house. That's not the case now. In fact, en masse, Britons are

:05:24.:05:30.

paying back their mortgages at very high rates rates we haven't seen for

:05:31.:05:35.

30 years. So, don't get it wrong. There's not a house price bubble

:05:36.:05:40.

outside London and possibly the south`east and the recovery isn't

:05:41.:05:44.

based on a housing rubble. He is talking nonsense? `` housing bubble.

:05:45.:05:56.

I wouldn't say that. What he says here, the business secretary warns

:05:57.:06:02.

most families aren't able to afford homes at average prices. Failure to

:06:03.:06:06.

build more homes condemned for producing unsustainable property

:06:07.:06:12.

boom. Isn't he write? there are many people saying we can't get on the

:06:13.:06:19.

housing ladder. `` he right? But the Conservative Housing Minister said

:06:20.:06:22.

rising house prices are a good thing. To a lot of people, who

:06:23.:06:27.

aren't totally into every milk and cranny of interest rates and things

:06:28.:06:33.

like that, they do see a story on the front page of a national

:06:34.:06:36.

newspaper that says house prices are going up and people think it's a

:06:37.:06:41.

good thing and they feel good. That's the natural perception.

:06:42.:06:45.

Because, these days, it is more money in the bank in your mind,

:06:46.:06:50.

plus, as you get older, it's something to leave the kids, it's

:06:51.:06:57.

good for inheritance. Also, it's good to pay care homes and things. I

:06:58.:07:02.

can see the criticism, if you get into the fine detail. But what he is

:07:03.:07:08.

saying is what people think. I love salted chocolate. But if I eat too

:07:09.:07:14.

much, I know what will happen. I didn't get the link! Salty

:07:15.:07:21.

chocolate? It feels good but ultimately pop goes the bubble. Rowe

:07:22.:07:30.

if you eat too much chocolate... `` if you eat. Maybe it was a bad

:07:31.:07:34.

analogy. But it's all very well feeling now, this is the criticism

:07:35.:07:43.

of are constantly rising market, but bubble burst. It creates consumer

:07:44.:07:49.

confidence, people feel more confident about spending money, and

:07:50.:07:53.

what has clearly happened is the construction industry has now

:07:54.:07:55.

recovered. That's happened since last year's budget and all the help

:07:56.:08:00.

for the housing industry. Treaties are getting work, plasterers,

:08:01.:08:08.

allocations are getting work. `` electricians. I remortgaged recently

:08:09.:08:21.

to do a bit of building work. UI one of those using your house as a

:08:22.:08:24.

cashpoint. It was so strict, compared to when we had mortgages

:08:25.:08:32.

recently. It did take a while. The way they are going through every

:08:33.:08:37.

little budget now... The criteria is street. But they are getting looser

:08:38.:08:44.

as well. 100% mortgages and so on. When you talk about the average to

:08:45.:08:49.

earnings, yes. At interest rates are at record low levels. If you look at

:08:50.:08:55.

the mortgage deals, in terms of fixed rates, they are some of the

:08:56.:09:00.

best deals you have seen forever. In terms of average earnings, yes, it

:09:01.:09:05.

may look expensive, but due to interest rates in some areas they

:09:06.:09:10.

are affordable. The Times, few regrows as expenses row minister

:09:11.:09:15.

things to job. Ethics chief warns MPs. Earlier we were saying certain

:09:16.:09:23.

papers would be like a double bomb. They won't let it go. She did 30

:09:24.:09:28.

seconds of an apology today. MPs who looked at this and have the final

:09:29.:09:35.

say ruled they demand she pay back ?45,000. Instead, she has agreed to

:09:36.:09:42.

pay back ?5,800. That's what the taxpayer had been overcharged in

:09:43.:09:44.

expenses for the interest of the mortgage. A five bedroom home in

:09:45.:09:50.

London. You get the impression that these newspapers will keep on going

:09:51.:09:59.

and, as you can see, it says, the need for a free press. Certain

:10:00.:10:08.

newspapers will say that newspapers under her might not be able to look

:10:09.:10:15.

after their own... Look after the sort of thing. But won't be able to

:10:16.:10:20.

police themselves. Whereas MPs in this case seem to be able to police

:10:21.:10:26.

themselves. The front page of the Telegraph as well. You do think this

:10:27.:10:32.

is going to keep running. They wanted to go away, you see that, as

:10:33.:10:38.

you can see with the 32nd apology. She is pleased and wants to let it

:10:39.:10:42.

go. She would be. The suggestion is that David Cameron, by his critics,

:10:43.:10:47.

cannot lose a female minister from his Cabinet. My problem is where is

:10:48.:10:58.

the difference between ?45,000 and 5000 `` by,000 ?800. The

:10:59.:11:04.

decision`making doesn't seem to be that transparent. My other problem

:11:05.:11:09.

is clearly interest rates have gone down. Everyone knows they have. It's

:11:10.:11:16.

been massive in the media, in newspapers. She cannot have not

:11:17.:11:21.

known that interest rates were going down and yet she is saying that the

:11:22.:11:28.

reason why she did her expenses wrongly. Because she didn't realise

:11:29.:11:33.

interest rates had gone down. How she could not know that is beyond

:11:34.:11:35.

me. Also, it comes out in your bank statement every month. I find it

:11:36.:11:39.

very difficult to believe, although clearly we have to believe it,

:11:40.:11:44.

because we are told to believe it, that somebody can do this.

:11:45.:11:50.

Interesting. The Daily Mirror. Furia at Miller's killers. Prison attack

:11:51.:11:59.

compensation. `` fury. The man found guilty of murdering Milly Dowler.

:12:00.:12:05.

This is at the `` the front page that will upset a lot of people. A

:12:06.:12:11.

great story but a very sad story at the same time. Yes, ?4500 given to

:12:12.:12:19.

him after being attacked in prison. A lot of people will say this is

:12:20.:12:24.

disgusting. The family of Milly Dowler have been dragged through

:12:25.:12:27.

everything over the past few tears, with hacking and this is just... ``

:12:28.:12:36.

few years. Prisons do owe a duty of care. Yes. They do. The Ministry of

:12:37.:12:45.

Justice didn't want to pay it and have been fighting for three years.

:12:46.:12:49.

But, on Wednesday, this cash was awarded at the County Court after

:12:50.:12:52.

they had to admit full liability. They were just going to get more

:12:53.:12:57.

costs. But when you see things like how apparently he will give funds to

:12:58.:13:02.

his relatives, he wants to use it on his caravan. `` will not give funds.

:13:03.:13:17.

It has a car to off a US border immigration official and he is

:13:18.:13:20.

questioning a bloke. He says, have you ever tried one of Nigella

:13:21.:13:28.

Lawson's pastor recipes? She faces a drug test now. It is a bit tricky to

:13:29.:13:38.

be on top of that. The US immigration is incredibly strict as

:13:39.:13:42.

anyone who has travelled to America will know. We have spoken to the

:13:43.:13:47.

embassy and they say she is now entitled to come and speak to them

:13:48.:13:57.

and apply for a these are. So there is one rule for Nigella Lawson and

:13:58.:14:03.

one rule for everybody else? When I travelled to the US, I felt out the

:14:04.:14:13.

immigration card slightly wrong. I did that go into New Zealand after a

:14:14.:14:18.

25 hour flight. You are supposed to take no. I ticked yes, yes, yes to

:14:19.:14:30.

everything and they still let me in. That was New Zealand. It has been

:14:31.:14:36.

great having you in. Many thanks. Stay with us here because at the top

:14:37.:14:41.

of the hour we will have much more on all of that pollution that has

:14:42.:14:46.

been clogging the air over the last couple of days. Time for Sportsday.

:14:47.:14:59.

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

:15:00.:15:10.

Blackburn Striker DJ Campbell is one of six players rearrested as police

:15:11.:15:13.

step up their investigation into match fixing.

:15:14.:15:14.

Sunderland are fined
