and women's team offence. `` in the sports day. I bent. Events. More


from London part in another eventful day of athletics. That's in 15


minutes after the papers. Welcome to look ahead to what the


papers will bring us tomorrow, in the company of Kevin Schofield chief


political correspondent at the Sun and Kate Devlin, Westminster


correspondent at the Herald. Tomorrow's front pages, starting


with the Telegraph, leads with the Ebola outbreak in Africa. Warning


the virus could reach the UK, the photo is Lewis Smith, part of team


England who won gold at the Commonwealth Games today. Same


winner, different photo on the front page of the Guardian. The paper also


says construction workers involved in the building of venues at the


Qatar. Being paid less than ?5 per day. Dutch World Cup. The Financial


Times leads on the increase is on Russia following the downing of the


Malaysia airlines flight over Ukraine. In the mail, migrant tax


credits make the headlines, Ukraine. In the mail, migrant tax


credits make the paper claims Britain is spending ?5 billion on


the benefits. A dramatic picture on the front page of the Independent,


an explosion in the centre of Gaza. It also has a headline saying this


has been the darkest day yet. Let's begin with the front page of


the Daily Telegraph. Ebola, it has been sneaking up on us the story


because we ignore it as a disease, that is solely consigned to West


Africa but suddenly there is this dreaded feeling it might be coming


to Europe. This is a pretty terrifying story that is on the


front page of the Telegraph. Given the weight about who the warnings


coming from, this is from the government 's chief scientist. There


is the potential for it to reach the UK. It is obviously still quite a


low risk. We've seen since the spreads to Nigeria a bit more


concern about the fact it might reach here. There are lots of people


coming to Britain from Lagos, Nigeria, the sort of places. Lots of


traffic back and forth to Europe. One of the most chilling warnings


from the scientist is we got lucky with SARS, the last pandemic we were


warned about. We were fortunate that was not a lot worse. Since then,


there has been great connections there has been great connections


between continents and the risk is much higher. It is still quite a low


risk but GPs have been warned to be on the guard and out for symptoms.


Professor David Hinman from the centre of global health says a lot


of people, the airlines are relying of people, the airlines are relying


on people who are travelling to be honest and say they feel ill and


shouldn't travel but most people won't say that, they will get on a


plane and it could be like a Hollywood horror film a potent


incumbent on professionals here to spot it because they might not be


familiar with the bowler because they do not treat it day`to`day. ``


it is incumbent. There are questions about how quickly to deal with it if


it reaches us. Hugh Pym into an, the leading expert in this country on


if we have the hospitals to isolate if we have the hospitals to isolate


this disease. `` Hugh Pennington. Another story on the front page of


the Telegraph, don't let the taxman sees cash from the bank accounts.


This is probably the most controversial part of George Osborne


's budget which was at the time generally pretty well received. The


government will let the taxman be given the power if you don't respond


to four former warnings from each see the taxman will have the power


to go directly into your bank account to take out money. This


throws up all sort of questions about Civil Liberties, the Institute


of chartered accountants is saying it will damage public trust in the


tax system. We are already in an era where there are added passwords and


people hacking into their bank accounts. If the taxman himself will


be given the power to go into your bank account it sets up a dangerous


precedent. We're told this will only happen in exceptional circumstances


but you can seek once the taxman gets a taste for it you can see it


as a handy cash cow. `` you can see. Reagan's yet expanding. One of


the concerns us whether we trust the government to get it right. But you


can see it. Do we trust the Inland Revenue? Certainly the experts don't


think they will get it right. There are situations and circumstances


where things are contested. You get letters landing on your doorstep


from time to time saying happy too much or too little tax, the taxman


has already taken out of your account and you get a letter a few


months later saying they shouldn't have. Then you go to the rigmarole


of getting it back. It is open to allsorts of nightmares. The


government is notoriously bad at this. All the government is


notoriously bad at this. All stories is, figuring out how much owe them,


it gets information from the Treasury telling it what whispers to


be earning every year and months later saying they shouldn't


have. Then you go to apparently that is always wrong. We will keep an eye


on that. `` what we are supposed to be. The Financial Times, we've been


reporting this might come your returning the screws on Russia, we


had a statement from President Obama. What is the feeling within


Westminster? Have they had enough today to put more pressure on


Russia? They move very quickly and there was lots of suspicion at the


time, your ribs leaders would talk to, they wouldn't follow through


with action. They gone some way to proving a strong. `` Europe's


leaders. It's not just always one`way traffic, the French who sold


a couple of warships for 1.2 billion euros, have been given an exception.


To the arms embargo which forms part of the sanctions. It's difficult to


do otherwise with Russian sailors there already training. It's very


true but it shows when it comes to, financially Russia still holds a lot


of influence over a lot of European countries so there is a bit of a


game of chess here on how far we can push the Russians to see what they


will do. The team down the bottom, a perennial favourite, banker bonuses


must be quarterback, with the Bank of England regime. This is not like


the sanctions story, talk about talking tough, it appears to be a


semi`climbdown from what they wanted to do. In March they were talking


about clawing back after nine years now it is down to seven. They talked


about making it retrospective as well, it doesn't look as if that is


what's going to be announced tomorrow. I think there will be


questions, the problem always was, because it has taken so long to get


the economy started to recover, the the economy started to recover, the


impetus for this measure would be lost and I think that is what


happened. Let's have a low cut the front page of the Daily Mail.


Migrants handed ?5 billion tax credits. You will remember yesterday


or this morning David Cameron announced in this morning 's papers


the length of time migrants from the EU will be able to claim


unemployment benefits has been reduced from six months to three


month, with a tough approach. Not in any way unconnected to the fact you


can still doing well in the polls and causing a lot of trouble for the


Conservatives. `` Ukip. They say this is not about benefits, it is


about in work benefits, low`paid immigrants are receiving around ?5


billion a year in tax credits which are essentially the government 's


way of talking up those on low incomes. The government is trying to


crack down on his coming here to claim benefits. This a lot of debate


about how many do that. This is talking about people who have come


here and are working and in many cases doing jobs that British people


don't want to do. They are low`paid and therefore they're entitled to


these tax credits in the same way as British people are. When they top


them up they get better wages here than they were doing other European


countries. That is the so`called pull factor so they're making the


point... Going through these, let's have a look in the Guardian. They've


been doing a number of things, in been doing a number of things, in


Qatar workers paid 45p an hour to fill the World Cup stadiums. This is


a series the Guardian has been running. Well done them for running


it. The controversy has been around this Qatar getting the World Cup for


months now. I think it is interesting. This story makes a


mockery of Qatar 's claim it is not getting the


interesting. This story makes a mockery of Qatar 's claim it respect


it serves for holding the World Cup. The claim that workers are being


paid 45p an hour. It does seem to have moved it on to British


architect which is interesting. The Qatari firm has been quite strong


and fast about this despite the international outcry. They are


trying to enforce the regulations. But more than 100 workers have died


on these project so far. A lot of them are dying of heart attacks or


just committing suicide because they are getting low pay or no pay. The


World Cup is still eight years away so heaven knows what the death toll


will be. It is time for FIFA to actually act. 20 more to look at and


we will talk to you both in an hour. `` plenty more. Join us for that.


Stay with us here on BBC News. At 11pm, more than 100 Palestinians


killed in the deadliest 24`hour is in Gaza since the conflict began but


coming up next it is Commonwealth Games sports day.
