for failing to meet UEFA's rules. That's all coming up in around 15


minutes. Hello, and welcome to our look ahead


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


Emily Ashton, Whitehall correspondent for The Sun. And


freelance journalist Eva Simpson. Let's look at the front page is now


starting with the tragic death of that teacher Anne Maguire. It on the


front page of the Independent. She was stabbed to death in front of


pupils in Leeds. That story is also on the front page of the Metro. It's


also leading with Max Clifford's convictions for indecent assault.


The financial Times goes with the ?60 billion takeover bid made by


AstraZeneca. The Daily Telegraph, another paper leading with the


killing of the teacher in Leeds, Anne Maguire. The paper says she was


seen as the figurehead of Corpus Christi Catholic College. The Daily


Express also believes that teacher's death, reporting that Mrs


Maguire was in their final term before taking retirement. The


Guardian claims a cross`party claim to brand UKIP as racist is to be


launched this week. We will start with the Independent. Death in the


classroom is a front page of the Independent. It's been the story


leading the bulletins all day. Absolutely appalling story. It's


unbelievable. It's the first time we believe a teacher has actually been


murdered in a classroom. People will remember the headteacher Philip


Lawrence was murdered outside a school in London but this was


outside the school gates. He had gone to the aid of a pupil being


attacked. This was actually inside the classroom where this young


15`year`old boy, who is in custody, is believed to have stabbed this


teacher and everyone spoken about her such glowing terms. It's


interesting to note that in the Independent, they got some research


which shows that figures show nearly 1000 students were caught with


lethal weapons such as guns and knives, axes and hammers, between


2011`13. I mean, as appalling as this is, actually, what we don't


hear about is that there is a lot of violence, a lot of that going on in


the classrooms which goes under the radar. Why are we not hearing all


about? I think there are these figures about pupils bringing in


these weapons into schools. But I think you know, a lot of the focus


has been on gang violence, and pupils attacking each other. When


you think back to Philip Lawrence, when he was murdered outside that


school in London in 1995, it was, that was a very different


situation. He was breaking up a fight. He was stabbed through the


heart by one of these gang members. This was a pupil, 15`year`old boy,


who turned on a teacher. In front of a classroom. How would you ever get


over that? As a child, how would you even get over that? There's more


detail emerging about the boy in custody. He's meant to be a very


bright boy, very gifted, predicted that top grades at GCSE. A very


talented artist. Obviously more will emerge as to what the motives behind


this attack was, but it's still fresh in everyone's minds, very


chilling. Shocking. Emily, is going to be a concerted debate, do you


think, now, looking at whether or not kids should be searched before


they go into schools? We know there this anecdotal evidence of kids in


inner`city city areas of London wearing stab vests going to school.


In America, they have metal detectors and so on. I'm sure the


debate will reopen, but I think the reports addressing tonight about


this particular incident... It seems isolated. I have no doubt this


debate will be reopened. As appalling as it is, I don't think we


need to start introducing metal detectors and all that sort of thing


for every teacher. I think it's very premature. The Daily Telegraph, the


teacher on the front. She was actually in her final year as a


teacher. She'd been doing it for 40 years, celebrated 40 years on the


job, job she loved. She had been at the school since she left


university. You know, this is obviously a teacher who was widely


respected, and well loved by many of her former pupils. People were


travelling to put flowers down there for her. I think she was due to


retire this summer, as well, which makes it all the more poignant and


very, very sad indeed. Staying the Daily Telegraph, a tipping point for


cancer as half of patients are now killed. This is a landmark new


research showing half of patients diagnosed with cancer today will be


effectively killed. That means that they will be diagnosed to expect to


survive for at least ten years, by which point their prognosis is as


good as those without the disease 40 years ago less than one quarter


would have survived. Researchers are saying... It's good news. Yes,


cancer should no longer be seen as death sentence but just a chronic


condition. That's incredible. We've all been touched by cancer. Before


lost loved ones through cancer, so the fact that 50% of us, people who


get cancer, could be jewelled, it's incredible. We have seen the recent


government campaign, haven't we, where the emphasis is on trying to


get at cancers as early as possible, so watching for the


possible signs. That's the kind of thing we are looking at. Absolutely,


but this development and research going on all the time, these new


drugs being developed, to help, as you say, people are learning to


diagnose for themselves when things are wrong. There's some great


statistics which saved women with breast cancer now have a 78%


survival rate. And also ten years ago, men diagnosed with prostate


cancer only had a 25% survival rate and now it's as high as 80%.


Incredible. Let's go to the metro. Victims join as Max Clifford found


guilty. He assaulted girls as young as 15. These were for historic


offences. He was found guilty of eight of the charges. I believe he


will be sentenced on Friday. You know, he is the first sort of guilty


verdict under Operation Yewtree. I think it will come as some relief to


the police and the CPS, who have come in for a lot of criticism


bringing these historic cases forward and prosecuting them, so I


think that's all a relief to the CPS and to the police. Also to the


victims. They had said their faith in the justice system has been


restored. This cannot be an easy process for anyone involved. No one


wins at the end of the day, even if he was no guilty. There is no


winners. It's good they can feel justice has finally been done.


Briefly, you were a 3am girl on the sun for the showbiz columnist. The


Daily Mirror. No one could have been in the entertainment business and


not come across Max Clifford. You would've come across him. He dealt


with all the tabloid editors. He was the king of kiss and tell is, the


guy who was sort of providing some of the biggest showbiz scoops, the


biggest newspaper scoops for decades. Yes, he was hired by many


people more to keep their secrets out of the papers than in them, but


according to the Sun newspaper which we haven't got it, they say Simon


Cowell has been the first person to find him. I'm sure it will follow.


The problem the CPS has had with Operation Yewtree which were set up


after the Jimmy Savile claims, these claims go back decades. It's very,


very difficult for a jury to make a decision. This was the eighth day of


deliberations. I'm not many people expected to come back with a guilty


verdict today. These are very, very difficult cases and we have seen


similar cases which are not part of Operation Yewtree, Michael Le Vell,


Bill Roache cleared. The CPS, the police will be grateful that this


has happened because it kind of shows it is worthy to take forward


these prosecutions and listen to these complaints because it can


work. They will feel justified with us. Onto the financial Times. The US


steps up pressure on President Putin's in circle with tougher


sanctions but the Americans have pointed out this is not an attack on


Vladimir Putin himself. The US has toughened sanctions by targeting


several officials, several companies linked to oligarchs because they


want to tie up the money. There's a lot of oligarchs close to Putin.


They hope to have influence in persuading him to back off eastern


Ukraine, because there has been talk of his sending in people under


cover, even though he says nothing to do with us. They just happen to


be pro`Russian separatists. The West doesn't believe that for a minute.


But the Deputy Prime Minister has been added to this sanctions list.


Vladimir Putin is not on this list, which involves travel bans, asset


freezes. The reason for that is because they want Putin to get


involved in diplomacy. Can't cut him off completely. They need him to


move around. If you slap on a travel ban, he can't get involved in talks.


You have to hope that diplomacy doesn't work what are `` what have


you to hope is that diplomacy works. One credit rating agency has already


suggested that Russia's credit worthiness is pretty near junk


status at the moment. Which is a knock`on effect across Europe and in


the UK in. America, they're a bit more removed from it. They're


further away. This is point as well, the US steps up the pressure on


Putin. The sanctions are heavier than the EU. The EU have been


cautious, adding names to the list, always warning that there might be


big economic sanction as head but never quite moving to it. That's


because Europe is next door to Russia and they're dead nervous.


You're going to be back in an hour to look at the stories behind the


headlines, many thanks for that. Stay with us here on BBC News. At


the top of the hour, we will have the very latest from Leeds on the
