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

:00:08.:00:15.

papers. Great to see our guests. Time for a look at the top stories.

:00:16.:00:29.

Tributes have been paid to the British explorer,

:00:30.:00:31.

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

:00:32.:00:33.

The jury at the inquests into the deaths of 96 football fans

:00:34.:00:37.

at the Hillsborough football stadium disaster in 1989 has been asked

:00:38.:00:40.

to consider whether any of the victims were unlawfully

:00:41.:00:42.

The World Health Organisation says that the Zika virus,

:00:43.:00:45.

which is suspected of causing brain damage to thousands of babies

:00:46.:00:48.

in Brazil, is likely to spread across much of North

:00:49.:00:50.

The former Conservative cabinet minister Cecil Parkinson,

:00:51.:00:53.

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

:00:54.:00:55.

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

:00:56.:00:58.

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

:00:59.:01:10.

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

:01:11.:01:16.

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

:01:17.:01:20.

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

:01:21.:01:23.

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

:01:24.:01:29.

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

:01:30.:01:41.

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

:01:42.:01:44.

With me are Kevin Schofield, the Editor of Politics Home

:01:45.:01:47.

and Mina Al-Oraibi a Middle-East Commentator.

:01:48.:01:58.

The Telegraph says the European Union is considering plans

:01:59.:02:00.

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

:02:01.:02:03.

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

:02:04.:02:05.

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

:02:06.:02:08.

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

:02:09.:02:10.

suspended completely, for two years.

:02:11.:02:14.

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

:02:15.:02:16.

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

:02:17.:02:20.

The Financial Times reports Downing Street has distanced itself

:02:21.:02:27.

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

:02:28.:02:29.

with Google represents a major success.

:02:30.:02:34.

The Guardian says spending cuts are to blame for a rise

:02:35.:02:36.

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

:02:37.:02:43.

miss life-threatening symptoms in children.

:02:44.:02:47.

The Daily Express says scientists are getting close to developing

:02:48.:02:50.

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

:02:51.:02:56.

the holders of the missing ?33 million lottery ticket.

:02:57.:03:06.

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

:03:07.:03:14.

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

:03:15.:03:21.

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

:03:22.:03:24.

Schengen zone to angry response. The ongoing migrant

:03:25.:03:34.

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

:03:35.:03:35.

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

:03:36.:03:42.

humanitarian issues, this is terrible for people who are fleeing

:03:43.:03:43.

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

:03:44.:03:51.

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

:03:52.:03:58.

Greece that has had terrible financial crisis and is suffering

:03:59.:04:01.

under difficult circumstances, both economically and from the migrant

:04:02.:04:04.

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

:04:05.:04:09.

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

:04:10.:04:13.

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

:04:14.:04:18.

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

:04:19.:04:24.

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

:04:25.:04:30.

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

:04:31.:04:36.

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

:04:37.:04:43.

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

:04:44.:04:47.

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

:04:48.:04:51.

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

:04:52.:04:53.

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

:04:54.:05:09.

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

:05:10.:05:10.

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

:05:11.:05:12.

you union? The most successful policy

:05:13.:05:19.

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

:05:20.:05:24.

policy. taking away policies that actually

:05:25.:05:31.

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

:05:32.:05:36.

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

:05:37.:05:40.

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

:05:41.:05:48.

renegotiate Britain's membership and the main sticking point is

:05:49.:05:55.

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

:05:56.:06:03.

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

:06:04.:06:06.

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

:06:07.:06:15.

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

:06:16.:06:19.

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

:06:20.:06:23.

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

:06:24.:06:28.

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

:06:29.:06:33.

which causes severe problems for pregnant women and unborn children.

:06:34.:06:37.

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

:06:38.:06:42.

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

:06:43.:06:46.

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

:06:47.:06:52.

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

:06:53.:06:55.

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

:06:56.:07:00.

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

:07:01.:07:05.

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

:07:06.:07:10.

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

:07:11.:07:13.

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

:07:14.:07:16.

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

:07:17.:07:23.

concerns that those travelling. Those already pregnant or thinking

:07:24.:07:26.

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

:07:27.:07:30.

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

:07:31.:07:35.

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

:07:36.:07:41.

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

:07:42.:07:45.

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

:07:46.:07:49.

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

:07:50.:07:52.

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

:07:53.:07:57.

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

:07:58.:08:01.

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

:08:02.:08:06.

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

:08:07.:08:14.

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

:08:15.:08:24.

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

:08:25.:08:30.

assistance whatsoever. An absolutely incredible feat of endurance and

:08:31.:08:35.

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

:08:36.:08:45.

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

:08:46.:08:51.

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

:08:52.:08:54.

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

:08:55.:08:59.

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

:09:00.:09:04.

Absolutely. I interviewed an explorer, a colleague of Henry

:09:05.:09:09.

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

:09:10.:09:14.

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

:09:15.:09:18.

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

:09:19.:09:24.

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

:09:25.:09:31.

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

:09:32.:09:36.

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

:09:37.:09:41.

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

:09:42.:09:46.

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

:09:47.:09:51.

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

:09:52.:09:56.

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

:09:57.:10:00.

which in some ways has been changed by people having technological

:10:01.:10:03.

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

:10:04.:10:07.

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

:10:08.:10:15.

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

:10:16.:10:22.

are used to the Express talking about medical breakthroughs. This

:10:23.:10:27.

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

:10:28.:10:31.

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

:10:32.:10:37.

apparently allow insulin producing cells to be implanted in diabetes

:10:38.:10:40.

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

:10:41.:10:44.

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

:10:45.:10:49.

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

:10:50.:10:55.

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

:10:56.:11:02.

important breakthrough. There is not too much information given about

:11:03.:11:05.

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

:11:06.:11:09.

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

:11:10.:11:17.

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

:11:18.:11:22.

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

:11:23.:11:26.

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

:11:27.:11:27.

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

:11:28.:11:34.

by the World Health Organization that the Zika virus will spread

:11:35.:11:39.

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

:11:40.:11:42.

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

:11:43.:11:48.

cross the Antarctic on a solo mission.

:11:49.:11:51.

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.
