about the FA Cup match. Salford is owned by a number of other players.

:00:00.:00:00.

This is all in sports day in 15 minutes after The Papers.

:00:00.:00:13.

Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers

:00:14.:00:16.

With me are Laura Hughes, political correspondent

:00:17.:00:21.

for the Daily Telegraph and Joseph Harker, who's assistant

:00:22.:00:25.

The Daily Mail claims a British flight was close to being struck

:00:26.:00:41.

by a missile in Egyptian airspace, a few months

:00:42.:00:43.

The Telegraph shows a tired tourist waiting to be flown

:00:44.:00:47.

The fallout from the Russian plane crashing in Egypt is also

:00:48.:00:52.

The i says that intelligence about the crash suggests a bomb was

:00:53.:00:58.

The main Financial Times story says a job surge in the US could pave

:00:59.:01:04.

And the Express claims many over 50s in Britain are struggling to get

:01:05.:01:09.

We will start with two or three papers that are looking at the

:01:10.:01:25.

ongoing developments in the Russian airliner crash that happened a week

:01:26.:01:31.

ago. Here is how The Times are reporting it, bomber blew plane

:01:32.:01:41.

departed black box experts. They say that a bomb could be heard 20

:01:42.:01:46.

minutes into the flight. According to the report is that we are hearing

:01:47.:01:50.

which not been confirmed this explosion did not sound like a

:01:51.:01:53.

technical issues that we seem to be edging closer to the ball theory. If

:01:54.:02:00.

we can hear a sound in the background of this black box does

:02:01.:02:04.

seem to point to even more evidence. From the day of the crash itself, it

:02:05.:02:10.

was spread over such a large area it felt like there had been an

:02:11.:02:12.

explosion at high altitude and as the word now my -- and as there were

:02:13.:02:20.

no Mayday signals it seems to be pointing in that direction. Egypt

:02:21.:02:25.

and Russia have seemed to deny it but now they seem to be responding

:02:26.:02:29.

and Russia seems to believe it could have been an act of terrorism

:02:30.:02:32.

because it has stopped flights going to Sharm el-Sheikh as well.

:02:33.:02:39.

Initially they were saying it could not be a missile because it was

:02:40.:02:45.

flying too high and because of the way that the wreckage was scattered

:02:46.:02:50.

on the ground. No, they are still saying it is something different but

:02:51.:02:54.

not technical or pilot error. The Daily Mail have this story about a

:02:55.:03:00.

passenger jet flying in August and a report that it narrowly missed a

:03:01.:03:06.

missile which they say was from an Egyptian military exercise. We will

:03:07.:03:14.

look at that any moment. The other way that this incident is being

:03:15.:03:18.

reported is in the mirror on pages six and seven. It says that there is

:03:19.:03:26.

a fiasco at the airport. A lot of people talking about the chaos.

:03:27.:03:30.

People did not know if they were going to the plane back to the

:03:31.:03:33.

terminal and David in limbo for a couple of days. We saw the

:03:34.:03:42.

ambassador for Britain speaking to angry British people abroad asking

:03:43.:03:45.

when they would be leaving. The Transport Secretary said this

:03:46.:03:48.

morning that most Britons would be leaving and getting home, but we

:03:49.:03:52.

only had eight planes that actually blew out. I think the general

:03:53.:03:59.

consensus was that David Cameron had done the right thing and if it was

:04:00.:04:02.

about security they were happy to wait, but they wanted to know what

:04:03.:04:06.

was going on. People speaking to various news channels were saying

:04:07.:04:09.

that they were finding out what was happening from British media reports

:04:10.:04:12.

and not from people on the ground and Egypt. There seemed to have been

:04:13.:04:19.

conflicting experiences for people. Some people were left with no

:04:20.:04:24.

information but there were improvements in place insecurity

:04:25.:04:29.

that make people feel safer, but the confusion at the end of the holiday

:04:30.:04:34.

is not what you are expecting. There will have to be improvements because

:04:35.:04:37.

security was absolutely dire. The good thing is at least significant

:04:38.:04:43.

improvements can be made quickly, but at the same time it seems that

:04:44.:04:48.

because they wanted the tourists to BB graduated leather luggage that

:04:49.:04:58.

cost further delays. -- they wanted the tool is to leave without their

:04:59.:05:01.

luggage and that caused further delays. 5000 people are stranded. It

:05:02.:05:10.

has been very focused on British people who are stuck but there are

:05:11.:05:14.

almost twice as many Russians who are there. It was a Russian plane

:05:15.:05:19.

that went down. Some people are suggesting that things are being

:05:20.:05:22.

sold because the Egyptians are tried to provoke a reaction and they are

:05:23.:05:25.

annoyed that Britain jumped in there and said it was a bomb attack

:05:26.:05:29.

because obviously that will have an impact on their two of them so they

:05:30.:05:35.

want to do everything they can to calm people down. -- tourism. They

:05:36.:05:45.

have just got over the last hiatus. You mentioned the story in the mail,

:05:46.:05:56.

rocket attack on UK to reject. A pilot dodged a missile above Sharm

:05:57.:05:59.

el-Sheikh. We do not have a huge amount to go on, have we? This was a

:06:00.:06:07.

Thomson flight in August and it seems that the pilot spotted this

:06:08.:06:12.

missile. Two months before the plane crash on Saturday, a pilot spotted a

:06:13.:06:19.

rocket and took a bases action and it missed by around 1000 feet. From

:06:20.:06:25.

the headline you would think this must be some kind of ices rocket,

:06:26.:06:32.

but then they say that an Egyptian government spokesman investigated

:06:33.:06:35.

the incident and they believe it was not a targeted attack and it was

:06:36.:06:38.

likely to be connected to routine exercise is being conducted by the

:06:39.:06:45.

Egyptian military. -- ices rocket. I think they are saying that to make

:06:46.:06:49.

people feel more comfortable, but if the Egyptian military could of done

:06:50.:06:53.

this in August there is much as they could have done last weekend as well

:06:54.:06:58.

and it could have been friendly fire. Except if there was a bomb on

:06:59.:07:06.

board. They have called it a bomb because they are presuming that ices

:07:07.:07:14.

two cannot hit a plane at that height, and it opens up another

:07:15.:07:18.

possible cause. It does leave other things open. According to this

:07:19.:07:26.

report only does in the cockpit knew what might have been flying close

:07:27.:07:31.

by. The only new because the site as it was happening and I think the

:07:32.:07:35.

biggest question here is why there was no communication? Why did we not

:07:36.:07:40.

know there were military exercises as we were flying over? How was that

:07:41.:07:46.

allowed to happen? We do not know how high up this plane was flying

:07:47.:07:49.

because the suggestion was with the jet that came down it was too high

:07:50.:07:54.

to have been reached by a missile in the hands of militants, so it is an

:07:55.:07:58.

alarming story but there are a lot of questions there. The Egyptians

:07:59.:08:05.

have confirmed that they fired a rocket towards a plane, which is

:08:06.:08:10.

astonishing. A couple of stories in the Telegraph, a battle over

:08:11.:08:16.

military pay rises as they are denied automatic pay increases under

:08:17.:08:21.

Osborne's controversial plans. Ministers are happy that they got

:08:22.:08:26.

the 2% defence spending, but the issue is that many military

:08:27.:08:29.

personnel believed that the government is spending too much

:08:30.:08:32.

money on equipment and that we do not have an up men to man this

:08:33.:08:41.

equipment. There is an eternal dispute going on and they are

:08:42.:08:44.

arguing that if you do not give the incentive to stay you will have lots

:08:45.:08:48.

of very high up and talented officers leaving to work in the

:08:49.:08:52.

private sector and that this will just put people off joining when we

:08:53.:08:56.

need people there. Why are we spending money on equipment when we

:08:57.:08:59.

don't have the personnel to operate it? It is a peculiar message to

:09:00.:09:06.

centre the Armed Forces, but it is money again, isn't it? This is

:09:07.:09:12.

Jeremy Corbyn's argument against Trident why spend billions on

:09:13.:09:15.

something that has no value to this country and that will never be used.

:09:16.:09:20.

It is a deterrent. When these cuts are taking place and the boots on

:09:21.:09:26.

the ground are being put in jeopardy. Another story in the

:09:27.:09:32.

Telegraph, Prime Minister, everyone to have the right to fast broadband.

:09:33.:09:36.

Rights are bestowed upon it and someone has to enable us to get

:09:37.:09:40.

broadband of any sort in some places. Where I live in south London

:09:41.:09:46.

you do not necessarily have the right to high-speed broadband, so I

:09:47.:09:51.

am not sure. It is a great vision and we want every home to have

:09:52.:09:56.

access to high-speed, but obviously it will take a lot of time and

:09:57.:10:00.

digging and roadworks before that comes to fruition. It is a measure

:10:01.:10:06.

of deprivation these days, not having access to the Internet.

:10:07.:10:11.

People feel that it is their human rights. Just as you would expect to

:10:12.:10:16.

have access to water and electricity, people feel that they

:10:17.:10:20.

need the Internet. What is interesting is that the head of

:10:21.:10:27.

columns and suffering -- is that the head of, says that people's

:10:28.:10:35.

broadband are suffering because they have not put the richer in the right

:10:36.:10:39.

place in the house. I need to move mine away from the phone. Now let us

:10:40.:10:47.

look at The Express. There is a doctor crisis for the over 50s that

:10:48.:10:51.

have struggling to see their GP on the day that they fall ill. I is

:10:52.:10:57.

this relevant to the over 50s? I don't know because the story does

:10:58.:11:01.

not say that they are comparing this with any other age group, they could

:11:02.:11:04.

see that any age group struggle to see their GP. Maybe the research was

:11:05.:11:10.

carried out by a group that deals with that age group. It does seem

:11:11.:11:14.

interesting that they have chosen that age group. It does not save the

:11:15.:11:19.

survey and other age groups or maybe it is because more over 50s need to

:11:20.:11:25.

go to the doctor more than young people. I think that we all do. It

:11:26.:11:31.

is not that you are elderly if you are over 50. That is not what I

:11:32.:11:41.

said. There is a 50 year gap there. Maybe it is the elderly bit of that

:11:42.:11:45.

group that would require GP services more than perhaps the under 50s. It

:11:46.:11:50.

could be people who are in the 80s or 90s. Letters would get this

:11:51.:11:56.

Financial Times story, the rise of its fighters as pensioners are

:11:57.:12:01.

geared towards cheaper council. These are people who have withdrawn

:12:02.:12:05.

their pension pot and they have to take advice and they cannot find any

:12:06.:12:10.

human being to give it to them. There was a question at the time

:12:11.:12:13.

that there were not enough people deployed to offer this advice. I

:12:14.:12:18.

think this is like any kind of other service where they have to go

:12:19.:12:23.

through the steps and a direct you. I do not know how well that will go

:12:24.:12:26.

down with a lot of people who want to speak to a people's cutback

:12:27.:12:37.

person. Financial professionals fear exposure to future complaints and

:12:38.:12:41.

they demand high fees to price themselves out of the market. That

:12:42.:12:44.

is why the automated service is required. It all boils down to the

:12:45.:12:49.

fact that no people have the choice to get their annuities in one cash

:12:50.:12:53.

sum and spend as they want on a Lamborghini if they want. I don't

:12:54.:12:58.

think I've heard of anyone who has done that but I am waiting for a

:12:59.:13:02.

couple of years to get the keys for mine. People now have access to an

:13:03.:13:10.

awful lot of money but they will not know how to spend it they get it

:13:11.:13:13.

wrong they get it wrong people live in poverty. Their final years will

:13:14.:13:19.

be spent in real poverty. The professionals are now taking the

:13:20.:13:21.

stance that they do not really want to deal with this or have the risk

:13:22.:13:25.

and that is why this automated service has been put in place. The

:13:26.:13:32.

pensions minister and former BBC papers reviewer says that she

:13:33.:13:44.

welcomes all innovations. That is such a ridiculous statement. If PPI

:13:45.:13:49.

a great innovation that people welcome? We need to look at this and

:13:50.:13:54.

think it throws up really serious issues about whether people are

:13:55.:13:57.

going to be getting the right advice for how they spend an awful lot of

:13:58.:14:02.

money. When you need someone to talk you through the small print, this is

:14:03.:14:09.

probably the most important thing. Whenever I speak to anyone I want to

:14:10.:14:13.

speak to a real person. This is a massive issue. It is not as simple

:14:14.:14:18.

as pressing a button to speak to someone about your washing machine,

:14:19.:14:21.

it is about how to spend all your money. It will only cost you ?109

:14:22.:14:28.

which is a fraction of the cost of getting advice elsewhere. It will

:14:29.:14:40.

give you a report on 30-40 minutes. Surely, as a financial adviser, you

:14:41.:14:43.

are professional and you should know what you are talking about. They are

:14:44.:14:50.

realising that it is high risk. That is it, you survived it. We July to

:14:51.:14:57.

come back at 11:30pm? -- would you like to come back. That is from for

:14:58.:15:04.

now. You'll both be back at half

:15:05.:15:05.

eleven for another look at the Hello and welcome to Sportsday,
