This is BBC News, with Julian Worricker.

:00:00.:00:00.

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

:00:00.:00:09.

Tens of thousands of homes have been left

:00:10.:00:12.

without power, as parts of southern Britain are battered by heavy rain

:00:13.:00:16.

David Cameron has insisted he's not "going soft" with plans to shake

:00:17.:00:24.

up the prison system in England and Wales.

:00:25.:00:27.

He wants to reduce re-offending and give governors more control

:00:28.:00:31.

An inquest hears that the teenage soldier Cheryl James,

:00:32.:00:35.

who died at an army barracks over 20 years ago, may not

:00:36.:00:38.

Colonel McGavin Sportsday, Chelsea defender Kurt Zouma is ruled out for

:00:39.:00:54.

six months -- coming up in Sportsday. We will also hear why

:00:55.:00:59.

Jurgen Klopp doesn't want to see Liverpool fans walk out again in

:01:00.:01:04.

protest at ticket prices. And which two championship clubs have sacked

:01:05.:01:07.

their managers. That is in 15 minutes.

:01:08.:01:19.

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

:01:20.:01:23.

With me are broadcasters Petrie Hosken and David Davis.

:01:24.:01:30.

Tomorrow's front pages, starting with:

:01:31.:01:34.

In the Daily Telegraph, sources at the French interior

:01:35.:01:37.

ministry cast doubt on David Cameron's warning

:01:38.:01:40.

that the Jungle migrant camp could move from Calais to Britain

:01:41.:01:42.

Yes, this has happened so quickly. David Cameron was only just

:01:43.:01:54.

terrifying us all with the prospect of refugee camps growing and setting

:01:55.:01:59.

up in Kent, and already, insiders in France are saying actually, no. This

:02:00.:02:06.

is because a treaty was formed between France and Britain. It had

:02:07.:02:12.

nothing to do with the EU. It was set up in 2003, and they are saying,

:02:13.:02:16.

we have no intention of breaking that if you leave the EU. Much to

:02:17.:02:21.

the chagrined of the Calais mayor, who has always hated the idea of

:02:22.:02:25.

this treaty, but means that the border for Britain is in France, not

:02:26.:02:31.

in Britain. She would like it to be moved back to the UK to Dover, and

:02:32.:02:36.

of course, that is not something Britain would like. But now it is

:02:37.:02:41.

embarrassing that this has happened so quickly. I have great faith in

:02:42.:02:48.

Petrie. I am not so sure about her faith in France. It is entirely

:02:49.:02:58.

correct that this is not part of any EU deal. But, yes, you could have a

:02:59.:03:07.

hundred reassurances, although this reassurance that the Telegraph has

:03:08.:03:11.

is from French sources, so they would not renege on the 2003

:03:12.:03:16.

agreement, undermining Mr Cameron's claims. But of course, French

:03:17.:03:20.

governments change and they may change rather quickly. The deputy

:03:21.:03:24.

mayor of Calais is quoted as well, saying, we will have to cancel it.

:03:25.:03:30.

And the Merit Calais already wants things done and has been fighting

:03:31.:03:35.

for that for some time. So to be fair to the Prime Minister, that is

:03:36.:03:39.

his point. Governments and leaderships change, and there are a

:03:40.:03:45.

lot of people in France who don't want to this. What worries me is

:03:46.:03:52.

these quick, sweeping statements. He is supposed to be entering into

:03:53.:03:58.

negotiations to make us all want to stay within the EU. You cannot just

:03:59.:04:03.

throw things out that are suddenly knocked down. He should know that it

:04:04.:04:10.

is only a possibility. Why not say that, instead of the scaremongering?

:04:11.:04:18.

Hang on, scaremongering? For goodness' sake, we are living in an

:04:19.:04:23.

epochal political time, in my humble opinion. In a year's time, who knows

:04:24.:04:29.

where the Tory party will be, who knows where the Labour Party will be

:04:30.:04:34.

after the referendum? You have senior Tories accusing a Tory Prime

:04:35.:04:38.

Minister of desperate scaremongering. And who knows where

:04:39.:04:47.

the UK will be? If we lose the EU, we might have a Labour Prime

:04:48.:04:52.

Minister, because we might have a snap election. Interesting thought.

:04:53.:04:55.

The Metro leads on the Prime Minister's proposals to let former

:04:56.:04:58.

prisoners keep their criminal records private when they first

:04:59.:05:00.

And prisoner for dominated most headlines -- prison reform. But he

:05:01.:05:16.

had other subjects on his mind as well, relate to this. The Metro

:05:17.:05:21.

Tasers convicted criminals are to be allowed to conceal their record to

:05:22.:05:26.

help them find work. They will no longer have to tick a box to declare

:05:27.:05:29.

their offences when applying to join the civil service. Further down, we

:05:30.:05:37.

are told, only if they succeed in getting an interview will they be

:05:38.:05:42.

required to reveal their past. It seems to me that at some stage, they

:05:43.:05:47.

will have to reveal their past. I don't know what this is. I think it

:05:48.:05:54.

is fluff and nonsense. Well, the Prime Minister claims are fenders

:05:55.:05:57.

should get the chance to state their case. In other words, they get as

:05:58.:06:05.

far as an interview. So if it is OK for the civil service to accept

:06:06.:06:09.

people, shall we get rid of the CRB checks or whatever they are called

:06:10.:06:14.

now, which cost decent people ?40 a time if they want to work in

:06:15.:06:18.

different places? We have to decide what we are going to do with

:06:19.:06:22.

criminals and what happens to them afterwards. I don't think throwing

:06:23.:06:28.

these things out is a solution. I agree that there are many people who

:06:29.:06:32.

are criminalised by past behaviours, when perhaps they shouldn't be. They

:06:33.:06:36.

should be able to get a job that will help them stay on the straight

:06:37.:06:40.

and narrow, but statements like this are not helpful. It is a good

:06:41.:06:43.

illustration of the mess the halls is done is in. Most would not argue

:06:44.:06:50.

with that. Let's look at the daily Star's front page. There is a

:06:51.:06:53.

dramatic photograph of the aftermath of Storm Imogen. We were just

:06:54.:07:03.

looking at images on the BBC as well of reporters standing and being

:07:04.:07:12.

blown to smithereens by the storm. I have done it in my past. I am sure

:07:13.:07:19.

you have as well! I have seen enough reporters being buffeted along sea

:07:20.:07:23.

fronts. And we were also looking at people going for a stroll, which was

:07:24.:07:27.

extraordinary, because if they ended up in the sea, someone would have to

:07:28.:07:32.

risk themselves rescuing them. But let's not forget while looking at

:07:33.:07:36.

the awesomeness of this that there are people who have been in

:07:37.:07:40.

accidents. Two children were hurt when a wall fell down and people are

:07:41.:07:45.

without electricity. It is pretty miserable if you are in it. David,

:07:46.:07:54.

staying with the Daily Star, a reference to the dreadful injury

:07:55.:07:57.

that Beth Tweddle suffered. It is a dreadful injury and it is the third

:07:58.:08:03.

in the Syrians, a hat-trick of these serious injuries that this Channel 4

:08:04.:08:09.

programme has managed in the current series. I have to ask, what are they

:08:10.:08:15.

doing? And they are getting advice from, amongst others, Eddie the

:08:16.:08:22.

Eagle! He is worried about the future of such a series with the

:08:23.:08:29.

risks involved. This is an extraordinary programme. I did watch

:08:30.:08:35.

it last week. And I honestly could not believe that this was a new form

:08:36.:08:41.

of entertainment. It is horrific. I don't mind celebrities making fools

:08:42.:08:47.

of themselves. Some, I don't even mind injuring themselves. But when

:08:48.:08:50.

you watch this programme, they did the skeleton. You know when they lie

:08:51.:08:56.

on a tea tray, they were doing 90 kilometres per hour. These are

:08:57.:09:02.

amateurs. Rebekah Brooks her shoulder -- Rebecca Adlington broke

:09:03.:09:11.

her shoulder. Contestants try to master various winter sports,

:09:12.:09:14.

including ski jumping and skating. I am only just recovering from the

:09:15.:09:20.

final of Celebrity Big Brother. , back, all is forgiven! -- comeback.

:09:21.:09:29.

Do we need a programme where people are literally putting their lives at

:09:30.:09:33.

risk? Beth Tweddle's parents were concerned that she might be

:09:34.:09:38.

paralysed. She has broken two vertebrae in her neck. She is an

:09:39.:09:42.

Olympic bronze medal winning athlete and she is still injured, so what

:09:43.:09:45.

actresses and people from Towie are going to do, I have no idea. I will

:09:46.:09:50.

tell you what the spokesperson for Channel 4 said. All winter sports

:09:51.:09:54.

carry some risk, but in light of the number of injuries this year,

:09:55.:09:57.

Channel 4 has asked the producers to review safety procedures. How can

:09:58.:10:03.

there be safety procedures? No competitor is cleared to jump unless

:10:04.:10:07.

experts deem them proficient, it says. But they are clearly not

:10:08.:10:16.

proficient! According to Eddie the Eagle, who I believe on this

:10:17.:10:20.

subject, you have to practise and practise. And he has a film out

:10:21.:10:27.

about his life. We have raced through those newspapers.

:10:28.:10:30.

Thank you to both of you - you'll be back at 11.30 for another

:10:31.:10:35.

look at the stories making the news tomorrow.

:10:36.:10:39.

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.
