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


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


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


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


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


thanked Iran for releasing ten American sailors who were detained


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


the leaders Arsenal visiting Liverpool. Rugby news as Eddie Jones


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


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


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


snooker. Welcome to the look to the papers


tomorrow. With me, Isabel Hardman,


assistant editor at the Spectator. And Jim Waterson, deputy


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


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


Commons Chris Grayling saying the European Union in its current state


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


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


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


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


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


genetically modified food be as could be created in Britain within


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


conducted a survey that indicates Jeremy Corbyn enjoys overwhelming


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


headline but before we start deleting our accounts and making


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


employer had not snooped around other documents on his computer and


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


modified food is. A fascinating story where the implication for


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


argument about genetically modified food and embryos are about the idea


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


if they have genetic disorders passed down through generations, the


argument becomes that this could stop their children from getting


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


the EU as Downing Street is increasingly pushing ministers to


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


I'm Hugh Woozencroft. For the second night


running, there's late drama
