you how Max Whitlock landed his second gold of the games and Dan

:00:00.:00:00.

Keating 's took silver. That is in sports day in 15 minutes after the

:00:00.:00:00.

papers. Welcome to our look ahead at what

:00:00.:00:21.

the papers will bring us tomorrow. With me this evening our broadcaster

:00:22.:00:29.

Jennie Bond and the broadcaster Ms Wood. The Metro carries an exclusive

:00:30.:00:34.

interview with the doctor who gave up his job to treat Ebola victims in

:00:35.:00:43.

West Africa. The flames billowing out of Eastbourne Pier dominate the

:00:44.:00:45.

cover of the Telegraph. The paper also has a warning that on one of

:00:46.:00:50.

the busiest weekends of the year holiday`makers face flying without

:00:51.:00:53.

their luggage from Gatwick Airport because of staff shortages. The

:00:54.:00:57.

express has a photo of black smoke and flames engulfing Eastbourne

:00:58.:01:01.

Pier. The main story is Conservative hopes that the 40p higher rate of

:01:02.:01:06.

tax threshold could be raised if they win the next election. The

:01:07.:01:11.

Financial Times says the incoming European Commission President

:01:12.:01:13.

Jean`Claude Juncker is considering a new EU financial services are

:01:14.:01:19.

charged with regulating the City of London and financial stability. The

:01:20.:01:22.

Guardian leads with the Israeli attack on the United nations school

:01:23.:01:28.

in Gaza where civilians were sheltering from violence. The mail

:01:29.:01:34.

says the Eastbourne Pier was an icon of the English seaside. The paper

:01:35.:01:39.

also claims that an NHS hospital was forced to pay a nurse ?1800 to cover

:01:40.:01:45.

a shift on a bank holiday. So, let's kick off with the Guardian. Very

:01:46.:01:55.

moving picture on the front page. I'm amazed this seems to be the only

:01:56.:01:58.

front page covering Gaza because we have been watching BBC News today

:01:59.:02:05.

and men burying their babies, carrying little tiny shrouds out.

:02:06.:02:10.

This is yet another school that has been bombed, a UN school, and yet

:02:11.:02:16.

there is a peer that has knocked this off the other front pages,

:02:17.:02:22.

which saddens me. This is a UN school which 3300 people, mainly

:02:23.:02:25.

women and children, sheltering in it because they were warned that the

:02:26.:02:29.

homes would be bombed and it should have been a safe haven. Five

:02:30.:02:35.

rockets, or five missiles, went into the school and killed 15 of them and

:02:36.:02:47.

killed many. 100 dead today. It is horrible what is happening there.

:02:48.:02:51.

What are they going to grow up to think? It is beyond words now and

:02:52.:02:58.

perhaps the Guardian has understood this by putting such a wonderful

:02:59.:03:02.

picture on the front cover. It tells you everything. It could be far more

:03:03.:03:06.

graphic but this is a little girl, her face spotted with blood, a tear

:03:07.:03:11.

appearing underneath her eyelashes and her pretty little frock

:03:12.:03:16.

spattered with blood stains. She survived, so many didn't. As you

:03:17.:03:31.

mentioned in the headlines the most powerful statement was "children

:03:32.:03:34.

killed in their sleep, this is an affront to all of us, a cause of

:03:35.:03:38.

universal shame, today the world stands disgraced. And violating

:03:39.:03:44.

international law, so criminal activity going on here. It is

:03:45.:03:52.

dreadful. On social media there was a picture of Mahatma Gandhi doing

:03:53.:03:56.

the rounds and a quotation from him, a message to Israel and Hamas,

:03:57.:04:00.

and I for an eye makes the whole world blind. That is so

:04:01.:04:07.

appropriate. Both sides need to realise that. Three weeks into the

:04:08.:04:13.

latest renewal of islands there, we speak every day about hopes of a

:04:14.:04:18.

cease`fire, but when you see Hamas interview today and the Israelis as

:04:19.:04:22.

well, it seems the resolve is strengthening on either side if

:04:23.:04:26.

anything. People apparently according to this report in the

:04:27.:04:30.

Guardian thought there was a four hour humanitarian cease`fire. There

:04:31.:04:37.

was shelling during the cease`fire. And a crowded market where these

:04:38.:04:39.

people thought apparently there was a cease`fire was shelled. The first

:04:40.:04:45.

shell that came in people rushed to help, another shell came in and

:04:46.:04:48.

killed some of them, including a Palestinian journalist. So the rules

:04:49.:04:55.

of war seem to be being waved here. The behaviour on both sides just

:04:56.:05:00.

appears to be beyond disgrace actually. `` waived. The Israelis

:05:01.:05:11.

point out that the rockets land in other areas but they do not have

:05:12.:05:18.

such an impact on the civilian population. The Archbishop of

:05:19.:05:20.

Canterbury has also been speaking about this and that is the angle

:05:21.:05:26.

they are taking tomorrow. I found this interesting. Justin Welby, the

:05:27.:05:30.

Archbishop of Canterbury, is coming out with some wise words on lots of

:05:31.:05:34.

interesting topics. I am not a church person at all but I have some

:05:35.:05:39.

time with this man. He was speaking about the increase in anti`Semitic

:05:40.:05:42.

attacks in the UK. Apparently they have gone up and doubled in the past

:05:43.:05:49.

month. They have doubled from 65 to 130. I'm kind of surprised with

:05:50.:05:55.

feelings running as high as they are on twitter, if you read twitter...

:05:56.:05:59.

I'm glad there have not been more attacks. In the context of talking

:06:00.:06:05.

and condemning these increased attacks he speaks about the

:06:06.:06:09.

situation in general. He says very wisely that both sides are breaking

:06:10.:06:14.

the rules of war. They are both adopting self`defeating strategies.

:06:15.:06:18.

And he says that people who feel they have no hope will be violent.

:06:19.:06:24.

And at the moment Israel has to realise that the Palestinians remain

:06:25.:06:28.

condemned to hopelessness. That is all very wise, isn't it? Yes it is.

:06:29.:06:34.

If you look at the numbers killed on the Palestinian side it is 1300

:06:35.:06:43.

against 56 Israeli soldiers and two civilians. People are mentioning the

:06:44.:06:47.

horrible word proportionality, but somewhere in here Israel has to stop

:06:48.:06:54.

bombing. That is what everyone is saying and Hamas has to stop firing

:06:55.:06:57.

rockets that don't appear to be doing very much damage. It makes me

:06:58.:07:02.

fear for what will happen in the future when people get smarter

:07:03.:07:06.

rockets than these. Let's leave that because we will discuss it more

:07:07.:07:10.

later. I know that you are disappointed to see that picture on

:07:11.:07:14.

the front page, but it is very sad, isn't it? I'm sad but compared to

:07:15.:07:22.

the other thing. We will not compare. The Eastbourne Pier, lots

:07:23.:07:27.

of people out on the seafront today watching helplessly as it went up in

:07:28.:07:34.

flames. Five years ago we saw it in Weston`super`Mare. I'm a seaside

:07:35.:07:41.

girl. It costs 39 million is a rebuild. It's too early to say

:07:42.:07:45.

whether this will be rebuilt. I've been to Eastbourne Pier and quite a

:07:46.:07:50.

lot of peers to be honest. There was not quite a lot of things to do at

:07:51.:07:55.

Victorian times so we went to the peer! The trouble is that these

:07:56.:07:59.

magnificent places like this one had a 500 seat ballroom. Can you imagine

:08:00.:08:03.

500 people going to a ballroom any more? They become amusement arcades

:08:04.:08:09.

and slot machines. I can imagine people going to the ballroom after

:08:10.:08:16.

strictly have you done stricter? I haven't done strictly. It is huge on

:08:17.:08:26.

cruise ships. What I'm trying to say is they should restore these peers

:08:27.:08:29.

but not have them as amusement arcades. Wonderful 900 seat music

:08:30.:08:36.

pavilion and ballroom should be restored as that. It is on the front

:08:37.:08:40.

page of the Daily Mail as well. We can show you that while we continue

:08:41.:08:49.

to talk about it. It is a tragedy and I don't want to minimise that.

:08:50.:08:53.

There is the structure still there so they could salvage it. Other

:08:54.:09:01.

places that has been lost and all of the history with it. You have to

:09:02.:09:08.

turn it into something rather than a amusement arcade. It is a sad

:09:09.:09:11.

indictment of society people want to sit there with these machines. Some

:09:12.:09:16.

of them end up looking really tatty. Perhaps we could turn it into a

:09:17.:09:21.

hospital. This was a good idea, there is a national piers society.

:09:22.:09:28.

There is only 61 left now. They might sort it out. There is another

:09:29.:09:34.

awful international story, the spread of the Ebola virus that has

:09:35.:09:38.

taken hold of West Africa and does not seem to be getting Eddie better

:09:39.:09:44.

`` getting any better. This is a doctor from London who went to

:09:45.:09:48.

Sierra Leone. Whether he went out before the Ebola virus I don't know.

:09:49.:09:52.

He would be brave to have gone out after the outbreak. He says that the

:09:53.:09:55.

world has to wake up to this threat. And that his hospital was

:09:56.:10:00.

working 24`hour shifts and they are not managing to control the

:10:01.:10:04.

situation at all. Having said that there is a big scare story, the

:10:05.:10:10.

Telegraph is one other newspaper that does this story and takes a

:10:11.:10:14.

much more measured view and quotes Jeremy Hunt, the Health Secretary,

:10:15.:10:18.

saying don't panic, the NHS will handle this if it were to come here

:10:19.:10:22.

and it is extremely unlikely. All credit to the metro that says it is

:10:23.:10:25.

the world's most popular free newspaper, which I pick up going

:10:26.:10:30.

into London on the train sometimes. To put something like this on the

:10:31.:10:33.

front cover, I do remember the metro being a newspaper that was fairly

:10:34.:10:38.

trite and I thought this was a pretty serious newspaper now that

:10:39.:10:41.

every day is carrying serious stories, which is good. We're

:10:42.:10:48.

running out of time but what about this one in the Financial Times?

:10:49.:10:55.

Yes, basically at the moment, financial services in Europe are

:10:56.:10:59.

dealt with, I thought his name was deliciously barmy, but it is like

:11:00.:11:08.

that, and what he is going to do is put somebody else in charge of

:11:09.:11:11.

financial services. This smacks a little bit as if he is going to take

:11:12.:11:17.

reprisals on David Cameron for not liking him very much because London

:11:18.:11:21.

has a huge and healthy, one of the biggest financial markets in Europe

:11:22.:11:25.

and one of the biggest in the world, possibly the biggest. However, David

:11:26.:11:31.

Cameron is against reining in the bank is too much because he thinks

:11:32.:11:35.

we will lose them to other countries. It could be that this man

:11:36.:11:40.

or woman, has not said who it is yet, who is going to be responsible

:11:41.:11:45.

for regularly attaining this across Europe, will have an eye to changing

:11:46.:11:49.

what happens in London. Personally I am amazed that we have not sent any

:11:50.:11:54.

of our bankers to prison, and perhaps that is one of the things

:11:55.:12:01.

they will do. Watch this space, I think he could prove tricky because

:12:02.:12:04.

he might not forget how much he was disliked when he was trying to

:12:05.:12:08.

become president of the European Commission. We will be discussing

:12:09.:12:15.

that further later. We did not get to the Daily Express and talk about

:12:16.:12:21.

David Cameron's plans for increase in the fresh out of the 40% tax. We

:12:22.:12:28.

will get that later on. OK, stay with us on BBC news because at 11pm

:12:29.:12:35.

we will have much more on the situation in Gaza after a United

:12:36.:12:38.

Nations school comes under attack. Coming up next on BBC music is time

:12:39.:12:40.

the sports day life from Glasgow. Hello and welcome to

:12:41.:12:55.

Commonwealth Games Sportsday with me Greg Rutherford proves he's no one

:12:56.:12:57.

hit wonder, winning the long jump in Hampden

:12:58.:13:02.

Park to add to his Olympic title.
