And England's cricketers lost their test against Pakistan 2-0.

:00:00.:00:00.

That is all after the The Papers. what The Papers will have. Good

:00:00.:00:30.

evening. Before we hear what they have got to

:00:31.:00:35.

say let us take you through the front pages. The Financial Times

:00:36.:00:40.

saying the Bank of England is saying the Bank of England is

:00:41.:00:43.

considering making it harder to gain credit to avoid another crunch.

:00:44.:00:48.

The story of a driver jailed after filling himself at 192 mph on the

:00:49.:00:54.

Metro. The daily Telegraph suggesting that

:00:55.:01:00.

British intelligence intercepted intelligence regarding Islamic

:01:01.:01:03.

State. The Express leads on the decision to

:01:04.:01:09.

keep interest rates on hold. Good news on the front page of The

:01:10.:01:15.

Mirror. The story of the baby girl who has been cured of leukaemia

:01:16.:01:20.

following pioneering gene therapy. The Guardian also running that

:01:21.:01:25.

story. The crisis in Sharm el-Sheikh is on

:01:26.:01:31.

the front page of The Independent. The Times claiming there is evidence

:01:32.:01:41.

that an Islamic State on was smuggled on to the Russian jet in a

:01:42.:01:45.

piece of luggage. The situation in Sharm el-Sheikh and

:01:46.:01:50.

the speculation over what proper aircraft down dominates tomorrow.

:01:51.:01:56.

The Guardian focusing on the passengers coming back tomorrow, but

:01:57.:02:01.

without their luggage. The logistics of the situation. 20,000 Brits

:02:02.:02:13.

stranded holiday-makers. For thousands of them will be

:02:14.:02:18.

carried back tomorrow. Companies such as Thomas Cook and British

:02:19.:02:23.

areas are starting to resume flights. But this is all with the

:02:24.:02:28.

condition but by number ten on airport security in Sharm el-Sheikh,

:02:29.:02:33.

that security must be tightened up at the airport. The whole of the

:02:34.:02:37.

aircraft should be empty. There should be extra screening on

:02:38.:02:42.

passengers and checks on their hand luggage. This means if you are going

:02:43.:02:48.

on holiday, you must leave your luggage behind. Apparently it will

:02:49.:02:55.

arrive within seven days. I would imagine that the vast

:02:56.:02:59.

majority of people stuck in Sharm el-Sheikh will not give two hoots

:03:00.:03:02.

bags behind. An interesting day for bags behind. An interesting day for

:03:03.:03:07.

David Cameron. He has been David Cameron. He has been

:03:08.:03:14.

entertaining the President of Egypt. Coincidentally. Absolutely.

:03:15.:03:22.

Government had asked ten months ago Government had asked ten months ago

:03:23.:03:29.

for security to be looked at at this airport and the President said they

:03:30.:03:33.

did look and they found nothing untoward. So did they miss something

:03:34.:03:38.

view is that he has little option to view is that he has little option to

:03:39.:03:43.

do what he did, based on what appears to be the intelligence stop

:03:44.:03:49.

also, it does egg the question how much intelligence should be shared?

:03:50.:03:55.

What's the bulletin no if you months ago?

:03:56.:04:01.

And it has emerged that we did not share this information with Russia.

:04:02.:04:03.

This information, we did not share This information, we did not

:04:04.:04:07.

that with Russia. I would love to that with Russia. I would love to

:04:08.:04:12.

have been a fly on the wall in the conversation between David Cameron

:04:13.:04:15.

and Vladimir Putin. To find out what was said there. We do not have too

:04:16.:04:29.

sheared the intelligence. This was not intelligence ahead of the crash.

:04:30.:04:33.

It was subsequently, the intelligence services went back and

:04:34.:04:38.

days and there they found chatter, days and there they found chatter,

:04:39.:04:46.

as they call it, which seemed to point to an event like this. Look at

:04:47.:04:50.

what the other papers are saying. The Telegraph is digging deeper into

:04:51.:04:53.

what the intelligence might have been. British spies uncover Isil one

:04:54.:05:09.

plot. The Telegraph has a piece on British intelligence which uncovered

:05:10.:05:13.

the fact that it was in fact a form rather than an accidental clash. As

:05:14.:05:17.

a result of that the Prime Minister a result of that the Prime Minister

:05:18.:05:21.

made the decision, alone among world leaders at that point, to stop all

:05:22.:05:26.

which when it was announced last which when it was announced last

:05:27.:05:31.

night was pretty Jim at it. Some wondered whether it was an over

:05:32.:05:41.

reaction. But he had -- but if you had not acted in that week, and

:05:42.:05:46.

security is not secure at Sharm el-Sheikh, and subsequently another

:05:47.:05:52.

event took place... It is worth pointing out that the Egyptians and

:05:53.:05:57.

the Russians were quick to say this is not sabotage, this is a terrorist

:05:58.:06:02.

attack. How they could say that I do not know. They were equally quick in

:06:03.:06:08.

Cameron was accused of being in his Cameron was accused of being in his

:06:09.:06:11.

assertion that it was a terrorist attack. Diplomatic relations between

:06:12.:06:16.

Britain and Russia, it is interesting what will happen about

:06:17.:06:23.

this. It is interesting also, as your husband points out in the

:06:24.:06:28.

article, that it was British intelligence that unearthed this. Do

:06:29.:06:34.

you think that reassures a lot of people, not just those in Sharm

:06:35.:06:39.

el-Sheikh, anybody planning to travel who worries about terrorism

:06:40.:06:43.

which a Mac I do not know. One of the issues that this raises, we all

:06:44.:06:52.

tiptop but the security at some tiptop but the security at some

:06:53.:06:58.

resort airport may not be so good. Everyone should be a little weary.

:06:59.:07:03.

there again. There are questions to there again. There are questions to

:07:04.:07:12.

be asked. You can imagine the security services will be having

:07:13.:07:15.

words with the politicians to suggest that the surveillance powers

:07:16.:07:18.

that be have been talking and writing about food, had they had the

:07:19.:07:24.

powers that they are after, previously, they might have been

:07:25.:07:30.

able to see it before it happened and offer some warning. That is what

:07:31.:07:39.

they will be arguing stop our people reassured that at least the British

:07:40.:07:44.

Government is keeping an eye on British nationalists around the

:07:45.:07:48.

about taking responsibility to fly about taking responsibility to fly

:07:49.:07:54.

him home. But there is only so much the intelligence services can do.

:07:55.:07:59.

Look at the amount of electronic communication, that is currently

:08:00.:08:07.

being monitored, social media, we cannot cover everything. Shall we

:08:08.:08:14.

talk about some other stories? This is also fascinating. Let us stay

:08:15.:08:22.

with The Telegraph. George Osborne too soft on tax credit cats with a

:08:23.:08:32.

read on an effort reform. The Lords has compelled George

:08:33.:08:39.

Osborne to water down his repose all. Critics claiming that 3 million

:08:40.:08:47.

families could lose an average of 13 -- ?1300 per year. Many Tories in

:08:48.:08:52.

marginal seats are concerned about this. The majority is smaller than

:08:53.:09:02.

the number of people that might be affected. It is a politically

:09:03.:09:09.

different issue. George Osborne has been under pressure to mitigate it

:09:10.:09:13.

in some way. Prominent members offers own party like Boris Johnson

:09:14.:09:20.

have put pressure on to try to find a way of softening the impact. He

:09:21.:09:23.

seems to have gone along with the idea of a more staggered

:09:24.:09:27.

introduction. And here it seems he is going to try to rejig finances

:09:28.:09:31.

further by taking money from universal benefits instead.

:09:32.:09:38.

We had to read that story to three We had to read that story to three

:09:39.:09:47.

times before we got it. It does show that George Osborne has

:09:48.:09:52.

miscalculated year. He did not properly assess the amount of Bill

:09:53.:09:58.

this his poll tax moment? It is this his poll tax moment? It is

:09:59.:10:04.

something like that. Not yet. Meanwhile, we are getting a taste of

:10:05.:10:10.

the Mark Carne we were told about, the Mark Carne we were told about,

:10:11.:10:15.

ready to rein in credit. The Bank of England are considering making it

:10:16.:10:20.

harder for people to borrow, people to lend. Concerns about low interest

:10:21.:10:27.

rates having their wrong effect on the economy. He is saying that

:10:28.:10:32.

interest rates are not likely to rise again until 2017. But they have

:10:33.:10:41.

said before, then the last three or four statements, that interest rates

:10:42.:10:46.

how they will rise, and then they how they will rise, and then they

:10:47.:10:50.

did not rise. This is good news for people who have got mortgages. Bad

:10:51.:10:57.

news for savers. It is not good news for those people who remortgaged

:10:58.:11:03.

their houses. They have a right to feel rattled that previously they

:11:04.:11:09.

were told interest rates would go up and they did not and the remortgaged

:11:10.:11:15.

on the prospect. The Express also reports on how this is a blow for

:11:16.:11:25.

savers. It goes to show that forecasting errors on occasion the

:11:26.:11:31.

mag's game. Whether political surveys ahead of elections or

:11:32.:11:36.

things as facts, and people make things as facts, and people make

:11:37.:11:40.

serious financial commitments on the serious financial commitments on the

:11:41.:11:42.

them? Economists are presumably them? Economists are presumably

:11:43.:11:49.

using all the information available to them. Maybe B was like the

:11:50.:12:01.

forecasts to be more accurate. It suggests we are not out of the woods

:12:02.:12:04.

yet. The Daily Mail. An uplifting story.

:12:05.:12:17.

It has been reported today. And The Daily Mirror with the

:12:18.:12:24.

headline. And the story broadening out now. This is the breakthrough.

:12:25.:12:33.

It is a remarkable story. She is 16 months old, or 17 months old. There

:12:34.:12:43.

was no hope for this baby. And the treatment she has had had only ever

:12:44.:12:50.

been tried on mice before. They had to get special permission from the

:12:51.:12:56.

ethics Commission. They had exhausted all options. And her

:12:57.:12:59.

parents have asked to try anything possible. You can only imagine the

:13:00.:13:05.

doctors thinking, there is this untested approach. And it appears to

:13:06.:13:11.

have worked. The doctors are being understandably cautious. But they

:13:12.:13:16.

are hoping that has saved her and it will have implications for other

:13:17.:13:24.

people. It is also great news for great Ormond Street and British

:13:25.:13:28.

medical science. This is what our doctors and scientists are doing. I

:13:29.:13:36.

want to go back to The Telegraph. The police making money from

:13:37.:13:42.

speeding fines, but not from the fines themselves. This is an

:13:43.:13:48.

interesting story. I had never realised but police have more than

:13:49.:13:52.

doubled the amount of money the get in from speed awareness courses

:13:53.:14:05.

since 2010, it is about ?60 that you pay. Just to explain, you either get

:14:06.:14:14.

a fine and points on your license, or if you have not been on a course

:14:15.:14:20.

you get the option to be on a course but you still pay a fine but jury

:14:21.:14:22.

Skip the points on your licence. And Skip the points on your licence. And

:14:23.:14:26.

they can keep the money from that. They keep the money. And it is

:14:27.:14:37.

making them a great deal of money. And this comes 24 hours after the

:14:38.:14:40.

Police and Crime Commissioner in Bedfordshire said he wanted speed

:14:41.:14:47.

cameras on all the time on motorways for more money for the police

:14:48.:14:54.

force, and he was slapped down. The obvious they are making it in other

:14:55.:14:59.

ways. The bigger picture, with the Spending Review, many police forces

:15:00.:15:05.

will be concerned about levels of cuts. The Met police are looking at

:15:06.:15:10.

it hundred million pounds over four years, cuts to its budget, and they

:15:11.:15:16.

will be looking at every option possible to raise money elsewhere.

:15:17.:15:22.

We have run out of time. We will do it again in one hour. Thank you for

:15:23.:15:29.

11 with the next round of The 11 with the next round of The

:15:30.:15:30.

Papers. Next it is all the sport.
