highest ever run chase on the Asian tour to win the final Test against

Pakistan and level the series. That is all coming up after the Papers.

:00:00.:00:15.

Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers

:00:16.:00:18.

With me are Isabel Hardman, Assistant Editor at the Spectator

:00:19.:00:25.

and James Lyons, deputy political editor at the Sunday Times.

:00:26.:00:28.

Tomorrow's front pages, starting with...

:00:29.:00:35.

The Telegraph reports on the British tourists minutes away from take-off

:00:36.:00:38.

who now find themselves stranded in Sharm el-Sheikh

:00:39.:00:39.

after the government suspended all flights in and out of the resort.

:00:40.:00:44.

The Guardian says the government was acting on specific intelligence

:00:45.:00:46.

related to the crash, which it had received in the last 24 hours.

:00:47.:00:51.

The Mirror has a photo of the plane wreckage with the stark headline,

:00:52.:00:55.

There's a similar photo on the cover of the Times, which reports

:00:56.:01:01.

on comments from US intelligence sources that IS was responsible

:01:02.:01:04.

The Mail points out that David Cameron is the first world

:01:05.:01:10.

leader to say the Russian airliner was downed by a bomb.

:01:11.:01:19.

The Metro says the Government's concerns stem

:01:20.:01:21.

from its own intelligence sources rather than anything coming out of

:01:22.:01:24.

And finally, the FT is one of the only papers not

:01:25.:01:29.

It leads on pleas from the national grid for heavy

:01:30.:01:33.

users of electricity to curb their consumption after an unexpected

:01:34.:01:36.

Let's begin with the Daily Mirror which has a dramatic front-page. Not

:01:37.:01:59.

safe to fly home, the British government do not think it is safe

:02:00.:02:02.

so they are suspending flights and leaving many stranded. Yes, the

:02:03.:02:07.

front page doesn't leave us guessing as to why this decision has been

:02:08.:02:12.

taken, but I suppose the question was why on Wednesday the decision

:02:13.:02:15.

was taken when the flight came down on Saturday. And the reason the

:02:16.:02:21.

government has given is that they received intelligence that wasn't

:02:22.:02:24.

part of the flight investigation that suggested this may well have

:02:25.:02:27.

been as a result of a terrorist package. They feel as a

:02:28.:02:32.

precautionary measure, it is important to work out whether

:02:33.:02:35.

security measures at the airport are adequate and not have any flights

:02:36.:02:39.

going in and out until they have done that. Some are suggesting they

:02:40.:02:43.

are not adequate. It is pretty substandard at Sharm el-Sheikh. The

:02:44.:02:49.

British ex- Brits on the ground were looking at this before the decision

:02:50.:02:52.

was made but it is a huge logistical nightmare for the government to sort

:02:53.:03:00.

out -- experts. If they are not trusting the airport, how do we get

:03:01.:03:06.

them home? This is the sort of thing David Cameron will be talking about

:03:07.:03:09.

tomorrow and we will probably have more emergency Cobra meetings. There

:03:10.:03:15.

is some suggest then the RAF may be flying them out -- suggestion. This

:03:16.:03:22.

is all very awkward as Egypt's president has arrived here tonight

:03:23.:03:26.

to meet David Cameron and the Egyptians are very angry because

:03:27.:03:28.

they say this is an overreaction that will destroy their tourist

:03:29.:03:35.

industry. Yes, they say it is a premature and unwarranted reaction,

:03:36.:03:39.

that is the statement from the country's Foreign Minister. They

:03:40.:03:41.

were quick to say that they didn't think it was terrorist action. But

:03:42.:03:45.

they're obviously still continuing their investigation. You can

:03:46.:03:50.

understand from the British politician's point of view, that if

:03:51.:03:53.

you have been passed intelligence which suggests it might have been

:03:54.:03:56.

terrorism, why would you not take extra measures? If you didn't and it

:03:57.:04:01.

came out after that you had known something and had contacted on it,

:04:02.:04:05.

you can understand how justifiably furious people would be. Phillip

:04:06.:04:09.

Hammond had a pretty stark response. He said the Foreign

:04:10.:04:17.

Minister hadn't seen the information that Britain had. The Times says,

:04:18.:04:25.

the British are saying that they know more about this than the

:04:26.:04:28.

Egyptians do. And there are statements

:04:29.:04:28.

a stone satellite imagery of the plane going down. -- based on

:04:29.:04:44.

satellite imagery. If it is truly Islamic State, it is deeply

:04:45.:04:46.

alarming, because it and their terrorist activity. This

:04:47.:04:48.

is the point that Egyptian ministers have been making. They have been

:04:49.:04:57.

warning for a while about terrorism moving from Syria to Egypt and now

:04:58.:05:01.

they say the same thing is happening from Libya to Egypt and they are

:05:02.:05:04.

worried their reaction will be as slow as it was in regards to their

:05:05.:05:10.

worries about Libya. It is dominating the Guardian as well, but

:05:11.:05:13.

they have interestingly highlighted the question of new surveillance

:05:14.:05:17.

powers of the government here in terms of tackling terrorism, in

:05:18.:05:22.

particular. They are suggesting Theresa May will face significant

:05:23.:05:26.

opposition to that. This is very much the Guardian going with their

:05:27.:05:33.

own agenda. Blazing a trail. Interestingly, I'm not sure if you

:05:34.:05:37.

can call it a split at the moment but there are certainly tensions

:05:38.:05:41.

within Labour. Andy Burnham has forcibly welcomed the package today

:05:42.:05:45.

which is nowhere near as Taccone and as many had feared. -- draconian. I

:05:46.:05:53.

am not sure Jeremy Corbyn will be very happy about it. It does call

:05:54.:06:04.

into question Labour's policymaking process. Andy Burnham is normally a

:06:05.:06:09.

fierce opponent of many government propositions but he said he

:06:10.:06:13.

supported most of what Theresa May was announcing. He said the house

:06:14.:06:18.

shouldn't call this the snooper's charter, because that would be

:06:19.:06:24.

unhelpful. Andy Burnham is, how can I put this, in line with more

:06:25.:06:28.

traditional Labour voters who don't live in North London, on issues like

:06:29.:06:35.

this. One of the reasons he took this job is that he sees his role as

:06:36.:06:39.

to try to keep the Labour Party as he would see it, sensible on issues

:06:40.:06:46.

like this. Another issue of interesting timing because Theresa

:06:47.:06:50.

May is presenting this on the same day that we have got what looks like

:06:51.:06:54.

a really alarming terrorist threat from Islamic State. I'm not sure

:06:55.:06:59.

there are a great many people who would be looking at what is

:07:00.:07:03.

happening in Egypt who are overly concerned by the access that the

:07:04.:07:09.

intelligence agencies get. Although, their computer records are going to

:07:10.:07:12.

be stored for a year. Do you think that is alarming for some people? It

:07:13.:07:16.

depends what the details of those records are. What we were told today

:07:17.:07:21.

was that it would only be... The police would be able to access

:07:22.:07:24.

without a warrant, only the basic web address that people have

:07:25.:07:29.

visited. If you want to see what page you visited, you would need a

:07:30.:07:32.

warrant. There are safeguards within the legislation that campaigners

:07:33.:07:36.

have been asking for. But this is a huge bill and there is a lot of

:07:37.:07:42.

detail. You can see civil liberties groups going through it with a fine

:07:43.:07:47.

tooth comb. Americans haven't gotten this far in their bills? Haven't

:07:48.:07:59.

they? Officially. Good point. The Independent has a picture of student

:08:00.:08:12.

protests. Grants not debts, says one placard. It is a very different

:08:13.:08:16.

vision of Britain than the one we have at the moment, where students

:08:17.:08:20.

would probably like to be employed by business at some point. Don --

:08:21.:08:29.

John McDonnell addressed the students today. They were running

:08:30.:08:36.

down Victoria Street with smoke bombs and other things going on. Not

:08:37.:08:40.

quite as dramatic as it was at the height of the tuition fee protests.

:08:41.:08:49.

They haven't trashed as many things, but there is dismayed Labour

:08:50.:08:53.

circles that John McDonnell has addressed these people. People are

:08:54.:08:57.

asking why the leadership haven't learned from Jeremy Corbyn going to

:08:58.:09:02.

Manchester and making an address their where there were really ugly

:09:03.:09:05.

scenes and really terrible things happening -- there. People going

:09:06.:09:11.

into the conference, women being threatened by all sorts of

:09:12.:09:15.

protesters, and a lot of anti-Semitism as well. The fear

:09:16.:09:23.

amongst Labour moderates is, you go along and address these people, they

:09:24.:09:28.

behaved badly and you get the blame. Let's talk about the Times.

:09:29.:09:34.

To talk about carparks being cleared to impose huge penalties, after a

:09:35.:09:39.

case in which a chip shop owner lost a battle in the High Court over an

:09:40.:09:46.

?85 charge, because he overstayed his parking space time by 56

:09:47.:09:52.

minutes. That seems like rather a lot of money to pay. Private car

:09:53.:09:58.

park companies can impose the sort of charges, according to this

:09:59.:10:09.

ruling. This is a Supreme Court judgement which actually could also

:10:10.:10:15.

have imprecations for people who missed dental appointments and to

:10:16.:10:22.

abuse hotel Wi-Fi -- implications. I am not sure how that works but there

:10:23.:10:27.

are wider replications at this point. Right. ?85 is ?1 50 a minute.

:10:28.:10:46.

Quite steep. Christmas is coming and the i is a minding us that we have

:10:47.:11:00.

the John Lewis advert coming. Bah humbug. I love Christmas. But it is

:11:01.:11:10.

awesome and I love that too -- autumn, and Christmas is infringing

:11:11.:11:16.

upon it right now. When does Christmas start? In December. Then

:11:17.:11:23.

you can bring up your decorations and make lots of lovely decorations

:11:24.:11:35.

but it is still fall. So we can start until you say? Christmas is a

:11:36.:11:41.

brilliant time of year and I have three young children, but it is only

:11:42.:11:47.

at the start of December where you can threaten to take away the

:11:48.:11:52.

chocolate Advent calendar. The only time I dread is when that is over

:11:53.:11:54.

and you have nothing left to threaten them with except beer --

:11:55.:12:01.

except their birthday which is months away. Do you like the John

:12:02.:12:07.

Lewis adverts? I do. We will pass that on.

:12:08.:12:11.

Coming up next, it's time for Sportsday.

:12:12.:12:26.

Hello and welcome to Sportsday, I'm Azi Farni.

:12:27.:12:28.

There's a much needed win for Chelsea against Dynamo Kiev
