We'll be taking a look at tomorrow morning's papers in a moment -

:00:00.:00:18.

There is no safe level to drink alcohol, according to the first

:00:19.:00:22.

Even a pint a day could increase your risk of cancer and men should

:00:23.:00:26.

Over 25% of the population in Britain drink more than these

:00:27.:00:38.

guidelines so we want people to know what level of risk they take.

:00:39.:00:41.

A tourist hotel in Egypt has come under attack by armed men,

:00:42.:00:44.

leaving three foreign holidaymakers injured.

:00:45.:00:45.

A police officer in Philadelphia is repeatedly shot in his patrol car

:00:46.:00:48.

by a man pledging allegiance to Islamic State.

:00:49.:00:54.

The security firm G4S suspends seven members of staff at a young

:00:55.:00:57.

offenders' centre in Kent after a BBC investigation uncovers

:00:58.:01:00.

In Sportsday, all the reaction from the FA Cup third round opener as

:01:01.:01:15.

Exeter went all out for a upset, taking the lead against the seven

:01:16.:01:20.

time winners Liverpool. The Premier League side of any midst of an

:01:21.:01:23.

injury crisis and only two first-team regular started. And a

:01:24.:01:27.

light of Rugby Union scorers as well as the latest from the parts, that

:01:28.:01:31.

is all in Sportsday, after the papers... -- the darts.

:01:32.:01:44.

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

:01:45.:01:47.

With me are Caroline Frost, the Entertainment Editor

:01:48.:01:50.

of the Huffington Post UK, and David Williamson,

:01:51.:01:52.

the Political Editor of Media Wales and the Western Mail.

:01:53.:01:57.

Many of the front pages are already in.

:01:58.:02:05.

The Telegraph leads on what it calls the migrant backlash now afflicting

:02:06.:02:07.

Europe following the sexual assaults in Germany on New Year's Eve.

:02:08.:02:10.

The Guardian's top story is the sacking of the Cologne police

:02:11.:02:13.

chief for the way officers dealt with those attacks.

:02:14.:02:15.

The Independent says on its front page that British troops could face

:02:16.:02:18.

prosecution in connection with as many as 55 deaths

:02:19.:02:20.

The Daily Mail has a different headline on the same story -

:02:21.:02:24.

the papers claims 280 British troops are being hounded in

:02:25.:02:26.

The Times has an interview with former Shadow minister

:02:27.:02:32.

Michael Dugher, who claims Ken Livingstone is pulling

:02:33.:02:34.

the strings of the Labour leadership.

:02:35.:02:37.

The Financial Times leads on plunging global stock markets,

:02:38.:02:40.

which it says have suffered their worst start to the year in decades.

:02:41.:02:44.

The Sun carries the story of a British mother who says she's

:02:45.:02:47.

suing New York State police for ?30 million because they seized her baby

:02:48.:02:50.

The version from the Daily Mail of the story, here as soldiers are sent

:02:51.:03:10.

legal threats, 280 troops pounded in an Iraq war witchhunt. The Daily

:03:11.:03:15.

Mail leaving us in no doubt about how they feel about this. This is

:03:16.:03:19.

interesting, the same story on the Daily Mail and the independent but

:03:20.:03:25.

very different language. The Daily Mail very much a personal attack on

:03:26.:03:31.

his veteran soldiers, emphasising veteran, and length of service, and

:03:32.:03:35.

they are getting letters through the door, many years after some have

:03:36.:03:42.

come home, tired and adjusting to life and suddenly getting letters

:03:43.:03:45.

being delivered on the doorstep by taxpayer funded detectives. It all

:03:46.:03:50.

sounds like a knock on the door in the middle of the night. About these

:03:51.:03:56.

historic allegations. The independent headline is rather

:03:57.:03:59.

different, UK troops face prosecution over 55 Iraq deaths.

:04:00.:04:06.

Claims referred to the military equivalent of the Crown Prosecution

:04:07.:04:09.

Service. It says dozens of soldiers could be affected. If there has been

:04:10.:04:17.

instances of abuse, they have to be investigated? One of the most

:04:18.:04:23.

striking things about the war in Iraq was this was a war in which

:04:24.:04:29.

things like the scandals became a major strategic disaster, which the

:04:30.:04:34.

West is still paying for and there is this realisation that if you want

:04:35.:04:39.

to be seen as a pantheon of human rights, you need to ensure that you

:04:40.:04:43.

are not actually perpetrating human rights abuses. It also highlights

:04:44.:04:48.

how we living in a world where we have a professional army that we are

:04:49.:04:54.

expecting people to be accountable every single second and rightly so

:04:55.:04:57.

and it is as if the professional soldier is not just a warrior who

:04:58.:05:02.

are sent into places that people are terrified to go to, they actually

:05:03.:05:05.

have to be able to not use violence in situations where, how anyone can

:05:06.:05:14.

process this is extraordinary. We ask people to do extraordinary

:05:15.:05:15.

things but in the theatre of war acceptable and the British Army

:05:16.:05:24.

argues they have a very clear chain of command to stop abuses like this?

:05:25.:05:31.

And we know that this in the past has been proven to be abused and

:05:32.:05:34.

certainly the troops that went over, to serve

:05:35.:05:35.

their country and sacrificed many lives, ruined families, that needs

:05:36.:05:46.

to be put in lives, ruined families, that needs

:05:47.:05:48.

say, there are these new, almost revised levels, of

:05:49.:05:59.

accountable as the years gone by because Iraq has such a tortured

:06:00.:06:00.

legacy and pounce on anything. The Financial

:06:01.:06:06.

Times, markets suffer the worst start to the year in decades, China

:06:07.:06:11.

shock waves spooking investors, the week long losses equalling more than

:06:12.:06:21.

$3.3 trillion! I cannot even come to that makes for some depressing

:06:22.:06:26.

reading for January. Apparently, the worst start to a year for two

:06:27.:06:33.

decades and one of the many striking things in the last paragraph is that

:06:34.:06:37.

apparently analysts think this is like a three act play that started

:06:38.:06:43.

in 2007, the financial crisis in America and the Eurozone in 2010 and

:06:44.:06:48.

this is the last one, but it is not just isolated there because if you

:06:49.:06:52.

have emerging economies which we desperately hope will continue to

:06:53.:06:55.

buy our services and make our goods cheaply, if they implode, we will

:06:56.:07:02.

all be in a very strange lifeboat. It was not long ago that what

:07:03.:07:04.

happened in China did not have relevance to us? Absolutely, we

:07:05.:07:10.

would worry about America and very much about Europe and possibly South

:07:11.:07:14.

America occasionally. Now, everybody, I say everybody but you

:07:15.:07:20.

all eating, Christmas pudding blissfully agreed that this is going

:07:21.:07:24.

on and were told today on the front pages that suddenly all these

:07:25.:07:29.

trillions have been not of the value of the planet and my question is,

:07:30.:07:32.

and what might those my mortgage go up? Until that happens, it all seems

:07:33.:07:39.

rather abstract. George Osborne says it might be sooner rather than later

:07:40.:07:41.

with the interest rates but that might be a readjustment depending on

:07:42.:07:46.

what else happens in the world. Staying with the Financial Times,

:07:47.:07:52.

inside pages, is that right? Be Cologne police chief quits? On the

:07:53.:07:58.

bottom. After the sexual assaults and robberies against women on a

:07:59.:08:03.

massive scale, it seems, in Cologne on New Year's Eve, it seemed

:08:04.:08:07.

inevitable to onlookers that the police chief would resign but what

:08:08.:08:12.

ramifications will be for Angela Merkel? This is worst nightmare, she

:08:13.:08:20.

was the best post in Europe and they have proven to be among some of her

:08:21.:08:25.

worst guests and at best, it is a pretty up gross abuse of hospitality

:08:26.:08:31.

and she has staked a political currency on opening the doors of

:08:32.:08:36.

Germany and being seen to be maternal, as she has been described,

:08:37.:08:41.

and now, this absolute headache of these people attacking people and it

:08:42.:08:45.

has been proven that a lot of them were asylum seekers so he had to go.

:08:46.:08:49.

But at what point, I do not see myself Angela Merkel being toppled

:08:50.:08:54.

but the pressure on her is to come up again with a solution.

:08:55.:08:58.

Interesting to see how this incident has been jumped upon by everybody

:08:59.:09:01.

who wants to put up the fortress walls. The Prime Minister of

:09:02.:09:06.

Slovakia said the dream of multicultural Europe is dead. Which

:09:07.:09:10.

seems like an exaggeration based on one incident but within Germany

:09:11.:09:16.

itself you have this huge argument starting but it is interesting that

:09:17.:09:19.

even the people concerned within the German politics, too many people

:09:20.:09:25.

have come in. They propose to limit this and it is still so much more

:09:26.:09:32.

than what the UK is taking in. Lots of big questions. One of your

:09:33.:09:42.

papers, the Western mail, and army apologises as the inquest buys a

:09:43.:09:47.

culture of unofficial punishment led to the Welsh soldiers... This is

:09:48.:09:54.

heartbreaking, so money people in Wales, a higher proportion of people

:09:55.:10:00.

joining the army per capita and for many people it does offer a

:10:01.:10:04.

fantastic career but when you think of the parents of this young man?

:10:05.:10:15.

--?. You are aware that your son or daughter is signing up for a higher

:10:16.:10:19.

level of danger but you do not expect that to be in the training

:10:20.:10:22.

process and it is this culture of unofficial punishment, which is

:10:23.:10:26.

quite hell-raising, that this is going on comparatively recently.

:10:27.:10:34.

Every story like this, I think of the US movies of the 1980s, where we

:10:35.:10:39.

are told that you cannot handle the truth, and the idea that this is

:10:40.:10:43.

happening on our own doorstep today, with that lack of accountability,

:10:44.:10:48.

there is so much military news today, but I'm sure there are so

:10:49.:10:53.

many soldiers reading the stories saying, none understand what goes on

:10:54.:10:56.

and what we are required to do and how. And the few ugly lights are

:10:57.:11:04.

being let on these events. Tonight, outside broadcasting house, there

:11:05.:11:08.

was a big issue seller who was in Kandahar, he was a veteran, and this

:11:09.:11:14.

question of afterwards, the care of veterans, which thankfully has been

:11:15.:11:18.

cranked up the agenda but it has taken so long. And a lot of

:11:19.:11:22.

charities doing a lot of that work for people when they have two

:11:23.:11:28.

readjust. The Telegraph... A story that has broken the safety, the

:11:29.:11:31.

doctors strike could tip the hospitals over the edge, the

:11:32.:11:34.

conciliation service said that the talks were continuing but nothing

:11:35.:11:39.

sufficient had been done to stop junior doctors striking on Tuesday.

:11:40.:11:45.

What is the expectation according to this article? I just think that as a

:11:46.:11:53.

say, it could tip hospitals over the edge, we have this sword dangling

:11:54.:11:56.

overdoes for the past 18 months, it feels like, with trainee doctors

:11:57.:12:01.

saying that they need more money and it will be putting pressure on

:12:02.:12:07.

Accident and Emergency resources, delayed operations and all that, and

:12:08.:12:11.

this is just another element and I think, all I can see on Facebook as

:12:12.:12:16.

people supporting doctors because they feel they are getting, not the

:12:17.:12:23.

help they need. There is that fear, if you go into hospital, you want to

:12:24.:12:28.

Doctor to have had a good night's sleep. There is enormous sympathy

:12:29.:12:35.

but also it is coming at a time just as the winter flu season is like to

:12:36.:12:40.

be kicking in, and apparently... Cynical? There has been a doubling

:12:41.:12:46.

of intensive care admissions in the past week. If you are going to do

:12:47.:12:50.

something, this is one of the worst times to do it. It is also

:12:51.:12:56.

interesting but in a way, throughout this government and the last one,

:12:57.:13:01.

his big confrontations between ministers and doctors and I wonder

:13:02.:13:05.

if in a way the NHS is one of the last great nationalised industries

:13:06.:13:10.

in that sense, you have ministers directly involved in pay

:13:11.:13:14.

negotiations. It used to be: steel. Here we are, heading for this

:13:15.:13:19.

titanic stand-off. And it is in England. It will be interesting to

:13:20.:13:26.

see what does happen on Tuesday because it is the junior doctors,

:13:27.:13:30.

who else will go out in support? We're not sure. The Daily Mirror.

:13:31.:13:38.

Something different. How to skip the Lotto, a genius has come up with a

:13:39.:13:41.

farmer to help win tomorrow night 's draw. Doctor John Haig, says random,

:13:42.:13:48.

less popular, higher numbers are the key and they should add up to 200.

:13:49.:13:54.

Not giving anything else away? Apparently, do not choose the

:13:55.:13:58.

previous weeks numbers. That is another cap. That would make quite a

:13:59.:14:04.

lot of sense. Do not pick the numbers from last week! They are

:14:05.:14:09.

just as likely to be the same as any other number? It is random! Picked

:14:10.:14:15.

the same numbers. Why is he sharing this information? YFC not sorting

:14:16.:14:20.

himself out? He is obviously very benevolent! -- why is he. This is

:14:21.:14:28.

just a decoder, he knows other numbers! If we pick the same

:14:29.:14:34.

numbers, and they did come up, we would be sharing about 50p each!

:14:35.:14:39.

Apparently this is one of the numbers, so many people choose their

:14:40.:14:41.

birthday or a date and that limit set between one and 31. Did you buy

:14:42.:14:55.

a ticket? No. I am one of those people who was told I am all like to

:14:56.:14:58.

be hit by a meteor than winning the lottery and when you see these

:14:59.:15:02.

staggering life changing sums of money and people trying to submit an

:15:03.:15:07.

online thing and it came up and are online and the application failed. I

:15:08.:15:11.

would rather not have the money then almost have that money! You would

:15:12.:15:16.

never do the lottery again! Very little point! Bad is it for the

:15:17.:15:22.

newspapers for this hour. We will be back again at 11:30pm for another

:15:23.:15:27.

look at the front pages. Coming up next, Sportsday.
