This is BBC News, with Julian Worricker.


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


Tens of thousands of homes have been left


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


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


up the prison system in England and Wales.


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


An inquest hears that the teenage soldier Cheryl James,


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


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


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


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


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


their managers. That is in 15 minutes.


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


With me are broadcasters Petrie Hosken and David Davis.


Tomorrow's front pages, starting with:


In the Daily Telegraph, sources at the French interior


ministry cast doubt on David Cameron's warning


that the Jungle migrant camp could move from Calais to Britain


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


hundred reassurances, although this reassurance that the Telegraph has


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


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


governments change and they may change rather quickly. The deputy


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


Minister of desperate scaremongering. And who knows where


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


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


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


prisoners keep their criminal records private when they first


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


amateurs. Rebekah Brooks her shoulder -- Rebecca Adlington broke


her shoulder. Contestants try to master various winter sports,


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


about his life. We have raced through those newspapers.


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


look at the stories making the news tomorrow.
