You are watching BBC News. I look at tomorrow morning's papers in a

:00:08.:00:16.

moment, but first the headlines at 10.3 seven. Three people including

:00:17.:00:19.

two French teenagers have been killed by an avalanche at the French

:00:20.:00:24.

Alps. They were part of a group of nearly 20 children and three

:00:25.:00:28.

teachers skiing in the Les Deux Alpes area. The US government has

:00:29.:00:32.

thanked Iran for releasing ten American sailors who were detained

:00:33.:00:36.

in Iranian territorial waters. Terror and has accept it that the

:00:37.:00:41.

boat accidentally drifted off course because of a technical problem. --

:00:42.:00:47.

ten grand. Talks will resume to try to resolve the junior doctors

:00:48.:00:50.

dispute which saw a strike yesterday which led to one in ten operations

:00:51.:00:57.

being cancelled. Two more walk-outs are planned. Crude oil has fallen to

:00:58.:01:01.

less than $30 per barrel for the first time in 12 years. It has

:01:02.:01:05.

dropped more than 70% in the past 15 months. In Sportsday, the reaction

:01:06.:01:12.

to a big night in the Premier League, with seven matches including

:01:13.:01:16.

the leaders Arsenal visiting Liverpool. Rugby news as Eddie Jones

:01:17.:01:21.

names his first squad as the New England head coach, selecting seven

:01:22.:01:25.

uncapped players. We will hear from him, and the latest from the masters

:01:26.:01:29.

Luca in Sportsday in 15 minutes after the papers. -- Masters

:01:30.:01:32.

snooker. Welcome to the look to the papers

:01:33.:01:43.

tomorrow. With me, Isabel Hardman,

:01:44.:01:47.

assistant editor at the Spectator. And Jim Waterson, deputy

:01:48.:01:49.

editor at Buzzfeed. Let's remind you of the front pages.

:01:50.:02:02.

The Telegraph front page has the Conservative Leader of the House of

:02:03.:02:05.

Commons Chris Grayling saying the European Union in its current state

:02:06.:02:11.

is disastrous for Britain. The FT report that employers may now have

:02:12.:02:16.

the right to read workers' personal e-mails and messages following a

:02:17.:02:20.

ruling by the European Court of Human Rights. The Daily Mail leads

:02:21.:02:25.

on that story describing it as a landmark ruling giving full access,

:02:26.:02:30.

they suggest, the personal messages. In the I, they say the first

:02:31.:02:33.

genetically modified food be as could be created in Britain within

:02:34.:02:37.

weeks in what they say is a step towards GM babies. The Guardian has

:02:38.:02:42.

conducted a survey that indicates Jeremy Corbyn enjoys overwhelming

:02:43.:02:46.

support among the Labour Party grassroots. At the bottom, news of

:02:47.:02:51.

some quirky gifts for the Royal Family including a marzipan model of

:02:52.:02:56.

Berlin's Brandenburg Gate. In the Scottish daily record, a great

:02:57.:03:00.

story, David and Carol Martin who have won ?33 million on the lottery.

:03:01.:03:07.

Good evening to you both. Starting with the metro. This sends a shiver

:03:08.:03:13.

down our spines, this story that bosses can have a look at what we

:03:14.:03:18.

are doing on e-mail even if it is personal. A slightly terrifying

:03:19.:03:22.

headline but before we start deleting our accounts and making

:03:23.:03:25.

sure everything we have ever said about our boss is already deleted,

:03:26.:03:30.

probably worth looking at the detail. This is a guy who was sacked

:03:31.:03:34.

in 2007 and the court has only just ruled because that is how long it

:03:35.:03:38.

takes to get through the system, using Yahoo messenger, something

:03:39.:03:42.

people have not used for a decade, to send lots of messages to his

:03:43.:03:46.

fiancee. He was sitting at work sending them back and forth and

:03:47.:03:49.

having a chat, his boss suspected he wasn't doing his job, went into this

:03:50.:03:55.

personal account and used this as evidence despite it being a personal

:03:56.:03:59.

conversation, that he wasn't doing his job, and sacked him. Slightly

:04:00.:04:04.

terrifying but at the same time it is a guy who was spending a large

:04:05.:04:09.

chunk of his working time sending messages to his fiancee, so I would

:04:10.:04:13.

be too worried unless you are doing that at work. A bit more detail on

:04:14.:04:18.

the front page of the Financial Times which says the judges said the

:04:19.:04:22.

employer had not snooped around other documents on his computer and

:04:23.:04:25.

had accessed the Yahoo messages on the assumption it was work-related

:04:26.:04:30.

because the account was set up to talk to clients professionally. So

:04:31.:04:33.

it sounds like he was being naive as to how far he could go with his work

:04:34.:04:41.

computer. I hope my bosses are not watching, but be a bit more

:04:42.:04:47.

discreet. I think you are right. A lot of words coming out like snoop

:04:48.:04:52.

and spite, but the lawyer we spoke to suggested that a lot of this

:04:53.:04:56.

legislation was in place already, you have to use your common sense.

:04:57.:05:04.

-- snoop and spy. A very cute baby on the I, but a very serious story

:05:05.:05:09.

as permission is looked at to do with genetically modified food be

:05:10.:05:12.

is, they say this could be the first of a step towards genetically

:05:13.:05:18.

modified food is. A fascinating story where the implication for

:05:19.:05:25.

science is massive. -- genetically modified food babies. Often the

:05:26.:05:34.

argument about genetically modified food and embryos are about the idea

:05:35.:05:40.

of sex selection, eye colour, that sort of thing, but for some families

:05:41.:05:44.

if they have genetic disorders passed down through generations, the

:05:45.:05:48.

argument becomes that this could stop their children from getting

:05:49.:05:50.

something that they have suffered from that has killed their parents,

:05:51.:05:55.

that sort of thing. We had a debate in the Commons last year on what was

:05:56.:05:59.

called three parent babies, and it was more complicated than that, but

:06:00.:06:03.

a lot of parents were saying that they don't want to pass on serious

:06:04.:06:06.

diseases to their children. The problem is, as the story says, it

:06:07.:06:13.

can open up the possible to people using science for slightly less

:06:14.:06:19.

scrupulous means. Quite a comic dated one, but we must move on. --

:06:20.:06:27.

complicated one. In the Telegraph, Chris Grayling talking about leaving

:06:28.:06:38.

the EU. His views. We finally have... If you go into any pub, it

:06:39.:06:45.

is all everyone talks about, the EU referendum... No, we have a little

:06:46.:06:49.

while until the vote, but you are starting to see ministers opposing

:06:50.:06:53.

the EU as Downing Street is increasingly pushing ministers to

:06:54.:06:57.

stay behind the government and, presumably, the campaign to stay in

:06:58.:07:02.

the EU. The odd one is breaking rank. Chris Grayling has been a bit

:07:03.:07:06.

sidelined recently and he has clearly gone, right, I'm going for

:07:07.:07:10.

this. A classic story where you have to read between the lines. He is

:07:11.:07:15.

worried about the path the UK will follow if it stays within the EU.

:07:16.:07:20.

Lots of euphemisms like that. Basically he is starting to move

:07:21.:07:22.

towards openly campaigning against it. A warning shot across the bows

:07:23.:07:28.

of the Prime Minister that several of his Cabinet Ministers may think

:07:29.:07:31.

differently to what he does, I'm sure he is well aware of that. In

:07:32.:07:36.

the Telegraph, and on the Spectator website as well, David Mundell,

:07:37.:07:41.

Conservative MP, Scottish secretary, who has come out as gay. You are

:07:42.:07:46.

running an opinion piece saying, do we care any more about this? We have

:07:47.:07:51.

a piece by Alex Massie, which basically says, so what? Alex goes

:07:52.:07:56.

on to say that the reason this is still interesting is that it shows

:07:57.:08:02.

Britain has changed and that we live in a kinder society. For men like

:08:03.:08:06.

David Mundell, who wrote on his website that feelings of fear about

:08:07.:08:12.

coming out were quite normal for men of his age... In ten years' time

:08:13.:08:16.

when the next generation becomes Cabinet Ministers, it would be the

:08:17.:08:18.

same kind of fear of saying who they are. When the news broke in

:08:19.:08:24.

Westminster, people said, oh, David Mundell is gay, OK, and they moved

:08:25.:08:29.

on. It is only 15 years ago in the Tory party that if you were married

:08:30.:08:33.

with kids and you came out, that would be considered a major scandal.

:08:34.:08:38.

It is not even a scandal now. Pleasingly, it is just not even

:08:39.:08:42.

really noteworthy other than the fact we finally have a publicly gay

:08:43.:08:48.

Tory Cabinet Minister. That is the only noteworthy thing, in a very

:08:49.:08:52.

nice way, good for David Mundell. We are running short on time, but your

:08:53.:08:59.

website, Jim, we have picked on the English National Opera anthem. Do we

:09:00.:09:03.

need something specifically for the English? -- English national anthem.

:09:04.:09:12.

I can't say I am a fan of God Save The Queen, it goes on for about two

:09:13.:09:17.

minutes too long. Some of the suggestions on the site were

:09:18.:09:20.

slightly bizarre. The main thing which. This getting anywhere, no one

:09:21.:09:26.

will ever agree. Any suggestions? I vow to thee my country. I love that.

:09:27.:09:33.

The English need more of a sense of identity, being outstripped by the

:09:34.:09:38.

Welsh and Scottish? I think so, I regard myself as English, but

:09:39.:09:41.

English identity has been considered but his identity once you take away

:09:42.:09:44.

the Welsh comedy Irish and the Scots... I don't consider myself

:09:45.:09:51.

English, you see... -- the Welsh, the Irish, the Scots. Thanks very

:09:52.:09:58.

much indeed. We will be back at 11:30pm for a longer look at the

:09:59.:10:03.

papers. At 11, Moore on the fatal avalanche at the ski resort in the

:10:04.:10:08.

French Alps. Two teenagers and one adult have lost their lives. Next,

:10:09.:10:10.

it is time for sports day. Hello and welcome to Sportsday,

:10:11.:10:25.

I'm Hugh Woozencroft. For the second night

:10:26.:10:29.

running, there's late drama

:10:30.:10:33.
