Team Sky have been forced to concede a Tour de France win is unlikely.

:00:00.:00:00.

That is all coming up in 15 minutes.

:00:00.:00:17.

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

:00:18.:00:24.

tomorrow. Withers is James Miller from the Sunday Post and Susan

:00:25.:00:29.

Mathias from the Financial Times weekend magazine. Let's start with

:00:30.:00:38.

the front pages. The US resident is warning of further action. The Daily

:00:39.:00:47.

Mail's headline is Putin's killed my son. The father of victim laying the

:00:48.:00:53.

blame with the Russian president. The Daily Telegraph picks up a

:00:54.:00:56.

similar theme, this time featuring pictures of the victims. The Daily

:00:57.:01:01.

Mirror dedicates its whole front page. The Times says flight MH17 was

:01:02.:01:10.

lost after rebels shot down the wrong jet. The Daily Express, as

:01:11.:01:14.

well as crash headlines as a striking picture of lightning

:01:15.:01:18.

strikes on the Isle of Wight with a warning of more to come. The eye,

:01:19.:01:22.

has a picture of a Russian rubble at the crash site holding up a cuddly

:01:23.:01:31.

toy. `` rebel. Let's begin. We will start with the Daily Mirror, who has

:01:32.:01:37.

devoted its front page to some of the victims of this appalling crash.

:01:38.:01:45.

One of them on the front page, named as a journalist, and man known to

:01:46.:01:49.

many people in this holding, Glenn Thomas it has been working more

:01:50.:01:53.

recently for the World Health Organization. It is seeing the

:01:54.:01:59.

individuals and hearing those stories which really brings home the

:02:00.:02:03.

horror of this particular offence? It absolutely does. The Daily

:02:04.:02:11.

Mirror's FrontPage is extremely striking. Although there are other

:02:12.:02:13.

front pages who have taken a similar approach. What it rings home to you

:02:14.:02:20.

is, in the vacuum of hard news, where we are at the moment where

:02:21.:02:24.

hard information is very difficult to come by, what is very striking is

:02:25.:02:37.

we are able to actually look at the victims of this terrible situation.

:02:38.:02:45.

Get enough information about them from their families to feel as

:02:46.:02:52.

though we are meeting these people. In a way we are meeting them, we are

:02:53.:02:56.

getting to know them. The Daily Mail takes it a step further, Putin's

:02:57.:03:01.

killed my son. Father of British students blames the Russian

:03:02.:03:09.

president. Richard Mayne, who was a student at the University of Leeds,

:03:10.:03:13.

who grew up in the Midlands. The investigation is still underway. It

:03:14.:03:19.

is about as accurate as we can ever hope to be at the moment, but lots

:03:20.:03:24.

of people and papers making the decision for themselves on who is

:03:25.:03:30.

behind this? Yes, everybody is behind Putin, based on how much

:03:31.:03:35.

evidence, I am not entirely sure. It is easy for them to blame Putin. It

:03:36.:03:40.

seems, from what officials are saying, he is behind it. It is a

:03:41.:03:45.

very good Daily Mail front page because it takes you into the story,

:03:46.:03:48.

it could be you, it could be anybody. This is an ordinary boy, an

:03:49.:03:55.

ordinary family and it could happen to anyone. Links to the rebels and

:03:56.:04:03.

how Russia could be connected, is featured in your newspaper, the

:04:04.:04:06.

Financial Times. The death toll is higher than we thought. We thought

:04:07.:04:13.

there were 285 people. It has been ticking up through the day. The

:04:14.:04:17.

issue is what happens next. The crash site is in a remote place.

:04:18.:04:26.

Everybody except the people who are investigating this, have had access

:04:27.:04:33.

to the site. It will be completely contaminated by now. This photograph

:04:34.:04:40.

shows people wandering around. Anyone who has been watching the

:04:41.:04:51.

images, can see how difficult it would be to clear off this site. So

:04:52.:05:02.

the chances of being able to have, as everybody seems to want, an

:05:03.:05:05.

independent and thorough investigation, how can that happen?

:05:06.:05:20.

On the front page of the Financial Times and the man in the centre of

:05:21.:05:25.

the picture is a man who is a self appointed governor of the Donetsk

:05:26.:05:26.

region, inspecting the crash site. It makes it sounds official. He is

:05:27.:05:28.

having a good look. They are having a walk around, but it isn't

:05:29.:05:30.

official. It is where we are right now with this story. What you are

:05:31.:05:31.

dealing with here, any right thinking person, the image you want

:05:32.:05:35.

to put out in allowing people to do their jobs and giving the families

:05:36.:05:39.

of the victims some sort of information. This man thinks the

:05:40.:05:45.

right image to put out is wander round with a gun in his hand and

:05:46.:05:52.

keep the people who should be there, off the site. Let's move to this

:05:53.:05:56.

one, people fell from the sky. It is shocking. People were finding body

:05:57.:06:01.

parts in their gardens. It fell in this remote part of eastern Ukraine.

:06:02.:06:07.

We have another picture of a rebel fighter holding up a cuddly toy that

:06:08.:06:10.

belonged to one of the 80 children on board. That must be so

:06:11.:06:15.

distasteful to people, that these personal effects have been gone

:06:16.:06:22.

through? It is an arresting image. You get the story straightaway, he

:06:23.:06:26.

has a gun, cigarette and children's toy. There has been on social media,

:06:27.:06:32.

throughout the day, pictures coming from the site and there are

:06:33.:06:38.

questions about what should be used and what should not be. Some of the

:06:39.:06:42.

things we see on social media, we would not put on television or in a

:06:43.:06:46.

newspaper? Nope, at the moment, the press has been restrained today, but

:06:47.:06:50.

social media does not operate by those rules. This photograph is

:06:51.:06:57.

interesting. You can look at it. It is almost as if he is brandishing

:06:58.:07:04.

this story. The image itself, you know, it is open to interpretation.

:07:05.:07:10.

It is the juxtaposition isn't it of something so innocent and something

:07:11.:07:11.

soap deadly and something so something so innocent and something

:07:12.:07:18.

soap deadly and casual in the cigarette? Let's move on to this

:07:19.:07:22.

story in the Independent. And this picture, we have a body covered by a

:07:23.:07:26.

plastic sheet in what looks like some kind of field vegetables in

:07:27.:07:32.

this particular part of the region. The question is, President Putin has

:07:33.:07:37.

promised further action and that sounds like it will be sanctions?

:07:38.:07:43.

What happens now, yes President Obama said something will happen,

:07:44.:07:47.

even if it is sanctions. A lot of people reading this story will be

:07:48.:07:54.

thinking that sanctions, you will not see an immediate impact from

:07:55.:07:59.

sanctions, even if there will be one economically. A lot of people will

:08:00.:08:03.

be looking at those pictures and want to see President Putin

:08:04.:08:07.

suffering for what it seems he was behind. Another story, the Daily

:08:08.:08:16.

Telegraph. Darling, I am popping to Tesco to buy the groceries and a new

:08:17.:08:20.

house. Tesco deciding it will build 4000 new homes on land it up

:08:21.:08:24.

previously earmarked for supermarkets? It comes as a bit of a

:08:25.:08:30.

light relief amidst the other stories of the day. But good news. I

:08:31.:08:39.

guess. They have realised out of time shopping isn't what people want

:08:40.:08:43.

to do any more and making good use of the land, building new homes. I

:08:44.:08:48.

don't know if they will be going into the estate agent business as

:08:49.:08:53.

well. Would not be surprising? Quite so. As you pointed out earlier, that

:08:54.:09:00.

particular real estate is probably worth quite a lot. You could build

:09:01.:09:08.

some expensive houses there. I think they would be wanting to build

:09:09.:09:15.

supermarkets. They are consolidating and having to go for houses instead.

:09:16.:09:19.

One of these particular sites, there was a huge up roar when people did

:09:20.:09:24.

not want a Tesco supermarket in this particular place. So their plans

:09:25.:09:28.

were scuppered and they were left with this land they had to do

:09:29.:09:32.

something with. It is prime building land.

:09:33.:09:40.

What you kept away by the lightning? 30,000 strikes, how do

:09:41.:09:51.

they count them? This was taken by the eye of white. Did you sleep

:09:52.:09:58.

through it? No. I just noticed the juxtaposition of the rebels blowing

:09:59.:10:01.

up the plane and this shock and awe image and I wonder if it was in the

:10:02.:10:06.

mind of the picture editor. I think it might have been. More to come? On

:10:07.:10:13.

Sunday you will see spreads of pictures of lightning and there will

:10:14.:10:17.

be lots of people out tonight taking them. It was very dramatic. I woke

:10:18.:10:23.

up, clocked it and thought, it is not time to get up yet. Thank

:10:24.:10:29.

goodness. James and Sue will be back with us again at 11:30pm. Breaking

:10:30.:10:34.

news, the Prime Minister and President Obama have spoken on the

:10:35.:10:37.

phone this evening regarding the situation in Gaza and also the MH 17

:10:38.:10:44.

disaster. Increasingly likely they agreed the plane was brought down by

:10:45.:10:49.

a missile fired from the territory controlled by separatists. More on

:10:50.:10:52.

that breaking news in a few minutes. Hello and welcome to Sportsday,
