Good evening. You are watching BBC News with Clive Myrie. In a moment

the response of the Governments to the flooding crisis. The Daily Mail


looks at families affected by medical blunders and says they have


been fobbed off when the have met a medical content. The Express again


looks at the floods. Warnings of more rain on the way. Time for the


weather. 341 millimetres of rain in this part


of Cumbria. Still some rain to come this evening but nowhere near as


significant in terms of rainfall totals. It is spreading across parts


of West Scotland, down towards the Lake District. We could see if other


ten or 30 millimetres quite widely before the night goes through. That


rain pushes through steadily eastwards overnight and we will see


a scattering of showers following on behind. Slightly quieter weather


conditions for the second half of the night. This weather fronts it's


to the East of the Pennines. Another cold night with temperatures into

windy weather. Especially as we move to Wednesday. Wednesday will be when


the web gales or severe gales, particularly to the North West. It


will take the time for the rain to gather, it will be to the North West


of Scotland, elsewhere sunny spells and highs of ten or 12 Celsius. It


is worth stressing that yes, there is father of ten or 12 Celsius. It


is worth stressing that yes, there is another thing, but nowhere near


as extreme as the weather event of the weekend. Also some dry spells.


You are watching BBC News with Clive Myrie. We will look at the


newspapers in a moment. Firstly, the headlines.


More than 40,000 homes have been affected by flooding and power


outages, after record rainfall across parts of Northern England.

top. And we will give you more information on BBC Sport personality


of the year. Firstly, The Papers. A good evening and welcome to our


look ahead to The Papers. We speak to the political commentator,


Miranda Green. And also Christopher Hope, the chief political


correspondent for the Telegraph. Here are the latest headlines...


The Financial Times leads with the news that oil prices have reached


their lowest level for almost seven years.


the success of the French far-right party the Front National in the


country's regional elections and says mainstream politicians are

The Guardian leads with the floods in Cumbria, saying that


the Prime Minister is coming under pressure to review the government's


And The Mail carries a criticism from the health


ombudsman that families affected by medical blunders are being fobbed


Only one place to begin, Miranda Green, with the floods.


Yes, terrible news. You cannot imagine what that must be like,


clearing out your home after the last day of edge and expecting and


waiting for another one. Watching people on the news programmes, it is


the idea that it is Christmas time, the time of year when everyone wants


to be at home with the family and also, for a lot of people, you think


of the people from Carlile, the thought that the flood defences had


been put in place, especially after the last appalling flood, and here


they are again. We all just feel for them so much. Carlisle. -- Carlile.


In one case, the metal looks at a family who had been flooded a few


years ago, they had new defences built and still the same problem. So


much rainfall in 24 hours. No wonder people are wondering where has all


the money gone, the company is doing its best and they are trying to do


with this problem and spend money accordingly. It happens while we are


looking at the issues of global warming in Paris. Perhaps there is a


connection there. Jeremy Corbyn has said that the weather is very bad.


This is going to be a pattern looking forward. The science is


clear, murk warmer air means it can hold more moisture. It is a simple


as that. Even climate change deniers, or at least those that


leave it is not man made responsible for that, they would agree with that


sentiment. The front page of the Daily Mail, the photograph, after


the flood, the clean-up, what you were seeing, Miranda, you know,


coming up to Christmas, people have the presence, all of the festive


tinsel, whatever, it has been destroyed. It is awful. Yes, this


pro-women on the front page of mild, desperately trying to get rid


of all of the mud and the sludge. -- this poor woman. The feeling that


you know that she might have to do it all over again in a few days'


time. It is quite upsetting. It is not clean water, it is dirty and


smelly water, that picture captures the misery of the old thing really


well. But what does the government do? The front page of the Telegraph,


record rainfall and more flooding on the way. This was a freak


occurrence, but as we have discussed, there was a freak


occurrence two years ago, there is a pattern, there seems to be something


going on. Is it simply the fact that, Miranda, we are spending too


much time in five areas, that we should actually should not be living


in those areas? That is really difficult, because somewhere like


Cumbria, historic towns, there is clearly an issue in some parts of


the UK with building on flood plains. It is debatable whether, you


know, some of those housing developments should have been


allowed to go ahead. We saw that in the flooding a few years ago. But


this, you know, over the last couple of days, Carlyle is an ancient


settlement, it was a Roman settlement. It is not a question of


wanting to sort of start again on an erroneous recent plan, we have got


to find a way like the low-lying countries of Europe have done.


Planning for this, in a country like the Netherlands, it is a major part


of their spending on infrastructure to make sure that the human


settlements are safe. We have got to be creative in terms of how we deal


with this problem. And we have to spend money on it. It is


interesting, that takes us to your story, Christopher, bold homes on


green belt, that is the headline. Yes, green belt is a protected area,


the ribbon of land around houses and cities that stops the Rubens role


that you see in America. It is an area for the Conservatives. They are


talking about building on bits of green belt. This is an argument for


the younger generation who have not had it as good as the older


generation. If they are worth less than ?250,000, outside of London, it


is a good opportunity, I think, for people to say, for people to release


the value for the younger ones, it is not a bad idea, we will wait and


see what happens. But some people will say, not in my


backyard. Absolutely, it depends on your perspective. Can you see it as


an important role for people to protect rural areas, defended beauty


of our nature? It depends whether it is at the end of your road. This


idea of the baby boom and people of that generation having it easy and


the people living no growing up and not having their own place to live,


it is interesting to know whether that older generation is beginning


to worry enough about its own grandchildren to want to see action,


so is there that intergenerational anxiety and well that allowed policy


to change? The government should give out the message that older


people, let the kids, give them a chance and let them on the housing


ladder. That is as old people still vote! Did I say that? Did I say


that? OK, there is a furious row over Tyson Fury. Miranda, you are a


big boxing fan, I will start with you. I live for it! This guy has


gone from hero to zero", the space of a few days after winning the


heavyweight title. It has been a long time since someone from Britain


had that. What is the problem? It is that his unexpected victory has lead


to unexpected levels of media attention and I heard various people


on the radio today to try to defend them and say, poor Tyson Fury, he is


not used to this, he is not surrounded by slick PR types to tell


him what to say and what not to say, well, he has unfortunately said


a few things that he should not have said. Misogynist, slightly


sexist... I would say that he had quite eccentric use. Interesting way


of putting it! He has his own strong interpretation of religion and he


believes that women should have a very restricted role, essentially a


domestic low, and he expressed that quite literally. He is very against


legalising homosexuality, which would turn the clock back several


decades. And he has got himself into a bottle of trouble. The problem is


that he is on the short list for BBC Sports Personality of the Year and


people want him off of the short list. But who are the people? Well,


it is a petition. He is such an antihero, that could draw votes.


Well, you could take him off the list and that would stop that from


happening. We will go back and look at the


headlines again later with Miranda. Now it is time for Sportsday. Thank


you for that
