This is BBC News. We will be taking a look at some of tomorrow morning's

Henry Worsley, who's died after attempting to become the first

in Brazil, is likely to spread across much of North


The former Conservative cabinet minister Cecil Parkinson,


who was a prominent member of several of Mrs Thatcher's


governments, has died, at the age of 84 after a long battle


Coming up in Sportsday, though. The other historic day of tennis in


Melbourne as Johanna Konta and Andy Murray fly the flag. The Scot might


have pulled out of the condition after his father-in-law got ill, but


he beat Bernard Tomic for a place in the final eight. We will hear from


Dylan Hartley and Jimmy Anderson and Jurgen Klopp on his killer glasses.


That is all in Sportsday in 15 minutes, after the Papers.


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


With me are Kevin Schofield, the Editor of Politics Home


and Mina Al-Oraibi a Middle-East Commentator.


The Telegraph says the European Union is considering plans


to "seal Greece off from the rest of the Continent", and move


the passport-free zone, so that it covers only northern


It says the idea is aimed at tackling the migrant crisis.


The Times says Europe's passport-free zone could be


suspended completely, for two years.


The 'i' leads with the agonising final message of the explorer


Henry Worsley, who died just 30 miles short of being the first man


The Financial Times reports Downing Street has distanced itself


from the Chancellor's claim that the ?130 million tax deal


with Google represents a major success.


The Guardian says spending cuts are to blame for a rise


The Mail says the NHS 111 service is a box-ticking exercise which can


miss life-threatening symptoms in children.


The Daily Express says scientists are getting close to developing


And the Star reports that hundreds of people are now claiming to be


the holders of the missing ?33 million lottery ticket.


I bet you two have tried to claim it as well. Love Hurricane Joaquin that


was nervous laughter. I couldn't find one. We start with the


Telegraph, feel Greek borders to hold flow of migrants. Plan to move


Schengen zone to angry response. The ongoing migrant


crisis, the idea they can just change the Borders, push Greece out


of it and almost want problem within Greece. One of the


humanitarian issues, this is terrible for people who are fleeing


war or terrible state of affairs in Syria, Iraq or Afghanistan. What


does this say about the European Union must map this is the same


Greece that has had terrible financial crisis and is suffering


under difficult circumstances, both economically and from the migrant


crisis, but it is a way of them trying to seal the border. There is


also plans to put thousands of troops between the border of Greece


and Macedonia, not to allow people to physically move. This completely


who are fleeing once they come to your borders. They want to say, if


you don't reach our borders, there is nothing we can do. But why


Greece, what about Italy? Greece seems to be the area, the country,


and islands surrounding Greece they are rising in their thousands. A lot


in Italy as well. It seems like a political decision. Maybe Italy is


too big country to important player in the grand scheme of things.


Greece does seem to be the focal point of this whole row. But what is


also significant, if they have also border, to reimpose internal border


checks, the end of the Schengen free trade movement, the fundamental key


principle of the European Union. If that will be suspended for two yes,


you union? The most successful policy


for the EU, so to reimpose internal borders is I think a failure of


policy. taking away policies that actually


works, because we can't figure out a way to deal with this crisis of


refugees, not just migrants. It is unfair, using it to hold the flow of


migrants. It is the migration crisis. David Cameron is trying to


renegotiate Britain's membership and the main sticking point is


migration. And also, the title, feel Greek borders, it seems like an


editorial. That is ongoing debate. News and comment in certain


newspapers, but not one we will start here! Anyway, moving on. The


Guardian. This zika mosquito thing. It seems as though it is getting


worse. Up until now it has mainly been contained to Brazil but it


looks like it is every other country in the Americas, apart from Canada


and Chile they think will be susceptible to this awful disease,


which causes severe problems for pregnant women and unborn children.


We were just saying that women are being advised not to get pregnant


for the next two years, while the medical experts try to come up with


some kind of vaccine or treatment for it. A really terrifying


situation we are in at the moment, because literally there is nothing


that can be done right now, other than advising women not to get


pregnant or wear long sleeves, real extreme heat, cover yourself in


spray, do whatever you possibly cannot to be bitten. But easier said


than done. Absolutely. And we have the Olympics coming up in five or


six months' time. I suspect there are probably a lot of people


concerned about going over there for the games? You are absolutely right,


concerns that those travelling. Those already pregnant or thinking


of getting pregnant putting it on hold. The idea that it could spread


through the Americas, North and South Americas, without a vaccine or


any sort of cure... It is not a new virus, and it has been in Africa for


some so now I get in the modern world, with so much travel and so


forth, you get viruses that are travelling and it is hard to


contain. It is still unclear what the World Health Organisation is


planning, in terms of longer term strategy. At the moment it is women


tried to protect themselves as much as they can. It is not spread


person-to-person, the mosquito has to bite you. That is probably would


why it will not get to Canada or parts of Chile, because it is too


cold. Onto the i. The agonising last message of Henry Worlsey, 30 miles


from completing this historic trek. Travelled 943 miles himself, no


assistance whatsoever. An absolutely incredible feat of endurance and


agonisingly he got within 30 miles of completing the trek. 30 miles to


far. It is incredibly moving. If you want to look for any sort of silver


lining, it has raised more than ?100,000 for the fund run by the


Duke of Cambridge. Something good has come from it, but a relatively


young man, 55. You feel for the family he has left behind.


Absolutely. I interviewed an explorer, a colleague of Henry


Worlsey who said if you are on your own there is no one there to say,


you have gone a little bit too far now. He was so close, just kept


pushing himself, pushing himself, to try and get their and reached a


point where he caused so much damage to his health that he couldn't


recover. Internal organ failure. You are right, because it is about the


mental stamina of the person. He was incredibly strong. To have got this


far completely unaided and chose not to have any supplies dropped, so he


could have this incredible feat, so close and yet so far away from what


he needed to have. It is also, like you said, incredible the money he


was able to raise, but also brought back the spirit of exploration,


which in some ways has been changed by people having technological


advances and cameras following them. This was a man who wanted to create


a feat that is rarely seen in the modern world. Onto the Express.


Scientists can hold diabetes. Closing in on a jab free cure. We


are used to the Express talking about medical breakthroughs. This


one does seem quite hopeful. If you have diabetes, part of your life is


your daily injections of insulin. This is a treatment which will


apparently allow insulin producing cells to be implanted in diabetes


sufferers, so they don't have to do that, and because your body could


then produce insulin effectively you would no longer have the condition.


Quite medical breakthrough. Type one. Yes, type two is controllable


and people live with it, but type one is trickier. This would be an


important breakthrough. There is not too much information given about


what the breakthrough, how much proof and how long-term it is. It


seems this would be for a six-month period of time that they would be


able to have these insulin producing cells reversed. I don't know if it


would be a long-term thing. You will be back in one hour's time when we


will look through more stories behind the headlines. Thank you for


that. At 11 we'll have more on the warning


by the World Health Organization that the Zika virus will spread


to most countires in south, But coming up next it's


time for Sportsday. And more on the man who tried to


cross the Antarctic on a solo mission.


No need to wait until tomorrow morning to see what's in the papers - tune in for a lively and informed conversation about the next day's headlines.
