diving and we will show you how gymnast Max Whitlock landed his

:00:00.:00:07.

second goal of the games, with Dan Keatings from Scotland taking

:00:08.:00:09.

silver. That's all in Sportsday in 15 minutes after the papers.

:00:10.:00:17.

Welcome back to our look ahead at what the Papers will be bringing us

:00:18.:00:24.

tomorrow `` papers. Jennie Bond and Lynn Faulds Wood are with me. Let's

:00:25.:00:27.

go through the front pages, starting with the Metro. It starts with an

:00:28.:00:33.

exclusive interview with a London doctor who gave up his job to

:00:34.:00:38.

volunteer in Sierra Leone. He said doctors are struggling to cope with

:00:39.:00:41.

treating the victims of the Ebola virus. Flames billowing out of

:00:42.:00:44.

Eastbourne Pier dominate the cover of the Telegraph. The paper also has

:00:45.:00:48.

a warning that on one of the busiest weekends of the year, holidaymakers

:00:49.:00:50.

face flying without their luggage from Gatwick Airport because of

:00:51.:00:53.

staff shortages. The Express also has a photo of black smoke and

:00:54.:00:56.

flames engulfing Eastbourne Pier. But its main story is Conservative

:00:57.:00:59.

hopes that the 40p higher rate tax threshold could be raised, if they

:01:00.:01:13.

win the next election. The Financial Times says the incoming European

:01:14.:01:15.

Commission, President Jean Claude Junker, is considering a new EU

:01:16.:01:18.

Financial Services Tsar, who would be charged with regulating the City

:01:19.:01:21.

of London and ensuring financial stability. But the Guardian leads

:01:22.:01:29.

with the Israeli attack on a United Nations school in Gaza, killing at

:01:30.:01:32.

least fifteen people who were taking shelter from the violence. The paper

:01:33.:01:35.

quotes UN officials: 'The World Stands Disgraced'. The Mail says

:01:36.:01:38.

that Eastbourne Pier was an 'icon of the English seaside'. The paper also

:01:39.:01:41.

claims that an NHS hospital was forced to pay a nurse ?1,800 to

:01:42.:01:44.

cover a shift on a Bank Holiday. Another dramatic picture of that

:01:45.:01:48.

pier in flames is on the cover of the Independent. It also claims

:01:49.:01:51.

Germany and Russia have been working on a secret plan to try to end

:01:52.:01:57.

international tensions over Ukraine. And finally, The Times asks: Is it

:01:58.:02:00.

the end of Eastbourne Pier? The paper also says that energy firms

:02:01.:02:04.

are failing to pass on huge falls in the costs of wholesale oil and gas

:02:05.:02:05.

to their customers. The horror of what is going on in

:02:06.:02:28.

Gaza and Israel is beyond words. It leaves you speechless, really. The

:02:29.:02:34.

Guardian has got it right. A picture of a little girl. It is a great

:02:35.:02:38.

picture. It is so poignant, so emotive. A little girl splattered

:02:39.:02:46.

with blood. It could be much more graphic. But the sorrow on this

:02:47.:02:52.

little girl's face, the blood on her dress, it is profoundly moving.

:02:53.:02:57.

Perhaps today has been the worst day of recent weeks. I am just saddened,

:02:58.:03:07.

really. Saddened that Eastbourne Pier has knocked off the front page.

:03:08.:03:14.

The UN are saying that this is a disgrace to the world. A serious

:03:15.:03:21.

violation of international law. We know that terrible things are

:03:22.:03:24.

happening on either side. But the innocents caught in the middle. This

:03:25.:03:28.

view when school is not the first one to be hit. 3300 people, women

:03:29.:03:36.

and children mainly. People who have been told to get out of their houses

:03:37.:03:41.

by the military because the area was going to be hit. They thought they

:03:42.:03:46.

were in a safe haven. 40 of them were sleeping in one classroom when

:03:47.:03:49.

it was hit. Just to make that point, a lot of these papers have a

:03:50.:03:56.

picture of Eastbourne Pier. What does that say? Is that the

:03:57.:04:02.

depressing familiarity of this conflict? We must not let ourselves

:04:03.:04:07.

become too familiar with this. It has got to be on every front page.

:04:08.:04:13.

After such a dreadful day. Not only the attack on the school, but the

:04:14.:04:17.

attack on the market. More people were injured and killed. Credit to

:04:18.:04:22.

television news, it has been carrying pictures of small babies

:04:23.:04:26.

being buried or carried in severe injury. How can small children

:04:27.:04:34.

recover from this kind of bombardment? What kind of hatred are

:04:35.:04:41.

we breeding? That was supposed to be a ceasefire today. People went out

:04:42.:04:50.

shopping. They got hit. I know the rockets are being fired from areas

:04:51.:04:58.

where people are, but it is just terrible. It is all men. I was

:04:59.:05:05.

making this point earlier. We must stop this. That is one of the most

:05:06.:05:14.

depressing things. There is also this talk of a ceasefire, but it

:05:15.:05:19.

seems to be meaningless. They are so entrenched in their positions. I do

:05:20.:05:25.

not know what we can believe and who can we believe. In the Guardian,

:05:26.:05:31.

there is a story deeper in the paper. Apparently they are not close

:05:32.:05:39.

to a ceasefire, despite the mounting pressure. We are getting nowhere.

:05:40.:05:48.

Hamas are not close either. It is going to get worse before it gets

:05:49.:05:54.

better. I am going to move us onto the front page of the Telegraph. It

:05:55.:06:02.

also features Eastbourne Pier. But the Archbishop of Canterbury has

:06:03.:06:05.

been talking about the situation in the Middle East. Justin Welby, a man

:06:06.:06:11.

who I have quite a lot of time for, he has been making a lot of sense to

:06:12.:06:17.

me. We need some wisdom in this situation. He is talking about a

:06:18.:06:20.

rise in anti`Semitic attacks in Britain. There has been a doubling

:06:21.:06:29.

of the incidents. Apparently we are talking about verbal abuse,

:06:30.:06:34.

vandalism, that sort of thing. And actual assaults as well. He is

:06:35.:06:38.

accusing both sides of breaking the rules of war. War does have certain

:06:39.:06:45.

areas that are meant to be sacrosanct. Why don't they just

:06:46.:06:58.

somehow, we have got to get both sides together. We have got to stop

:06:59.:07:04.

this. He is saying there must be hope given to the Palestinians.

:07:05.:07:12.

People who have no hope will be violent. Israel have to understand

:07:13.:07:16.

that they will continue to understand while the Palestinians

:07:17.:07:23.

are without hope. Let us move on to a different story. In the Times,

:07:24.:07:30.

they have the picture of the Black Smoke billowing out of Eastbourne

:07:31.:07:35.

Pier. But they also have the story about energy firms doubling profits.

:07:36.:07:40.

Huge falls in the cost of oil and gas are not being passed on. I

:07:41.:07:45.

switched energy suppliers and we managed to halve our bill. The last

:07:46.:07:56.

lot, we sure it did not sign onto a standard agreement, but that is what

:07:57.:08:00.

we were on. If you are not on some kind of saving, switch. Ask how much

:08:01.:08:11.

different companies will charge if you switch. I finally switched. I

:08:12.:08:22.

went on something that was fixed. It is really complicated. It depends on

:08:23.:08:29.

how long you fetch four. I am benefiting. The energy companies are

:08:30.:08:37.

saying, an election as `` is coming. They are blaming Ed Miliband for

:08:38.:08:47.

this. I can remember in the past, the companies have not passed drops

:08:48.:08:52.

onto us. There are sheltering behind the fact an election is coming. It

:08:53.:08:59.

makes your blood boil. You say you're going to have a freeze, why

:09:00.:09:03.

can't you legislate to, you must pass these cost reductions on. It

:09:04.:09:10.

must be possible. And clear bills as well, please. And we can go on to

:09:11.:09:20.

Eastbourne Pier. Fantastic pictures on nearly every front page. I am not

:09:21.:09:27.

quite sure why it is getting quite such prominence. We have been a

:09:28.:09:32.

starter kit catchment to our peers. `` aid the spellcheck attraction to

:09:33.:09:40.

our piers. They should restore it to its former glory. There was a 900

:09:41.:09:48.

seat music room and ballroom. How much nicer would it be to restore it

:09:49.:09:52.

to that instead of the amusement arcade which it is now? There are no

:09:53.:10:04.

longer economic. Now a lot of the piers I have visited are mainly slot

:10:05.:10:14.

machines. I just wonder if we are being a bit middle`class. A lot of

:10:15.:10:23.

people like these things. There was one in the centre of Richmond. I do

:10:24.:10:28.

not know, I do not play slot machines. You are possibly right. I

:10:29.:10:34.

remember I managed to crack the code for the fruit machine and get at

:10:35.:10:44.

least half a crown. We are running out of time. I want to take you to

:10:45.:10:48.

the Express. There are headline is, millions are set for tax cuts. There

:10:49.:10:56.

is a election coming up. All of these women being put into positions

:10:57.:11:02.

of ministerial power. Now they are talking about struggling families

:11:03.:11:08.

who pay 40% tax and they are going to change the threshold. I am not

:11:09.:11:13.

sure how that helps poor people. They do not pay 40% tax. It is a

:11:14.:11:21.

squeezed middle. It is a squeezed uppermiddle. David Cameron has said

:11:22.:11:27.

he would like to raise the threshold. But he also says he

:11:28.:11:32.

cannot make that promise. Nice headline. In terms of the actual

:11:33.:11:39.

story, when that threshold was introduced, one in 20 were paying

:11:40.:11:49.

the rate. Now it is fired in sex. `` five in the six.

:11:50.:11:55.

When you put up things like VAT, it falls on poor people. If he was

:11:56.:12:05.

interested in being fairer, he would look at the half of the country that

:12:06.:12:11.

are poorer. People may say the economy is recovering, that people

:12:12.:12:16.

say that their living standards have not, but all and they are suffering.

:12:17.:12:24.

`` gone up at all. Thank you so much for coming. Do stay with us. At

:12:25.:12:36.

midnight, we will have much more on the situation in Gaza of the United

:12:37.:12:44.

Nations school came under attack. `` after a. Also coming up is the

:12:45.:12:53.

Commonwealth Games Sportsday. That is why from Glasgow.

:12:54.:12:55.
