around. When the showers long they could be heavy with some hail and


plunder. -- thunder. Hello and welcome to our look ahead


to what the papers will be With me are Jason Beattie,


who's the Political Editor at the Daily Mirror


and the journalist and Let's have a quick look


at tomorrow's front pages. The Guardian reports on links


between the suspected Brussels bombers and November's


attacks in Paris. The Express warns there could be


more than 300 potential jihadist The Metro carries news


of a panicking note apparently left on a computer by one


of the Brussels suspects. The Telegraph quotes a former head


of MI6 saying that leaving the EU could help improve


Britain's security. The Independent laments a tragedy


of errors by the Belgian authorities which meant they missed chances


to stop yesterday's attacks. The Times also focuses on those


intelligence failings, saying Turkey warned that one


of the bombers was a suspected terrorist after deporting him back


to Belgium last year. Meanwhile, the FT leads on fears


that the referendum on the EU We will discuss the front pages over


the next 15 minutes or so. Jason, the front of the Independent, a


tragedy of errors? This extraordinary photo on the front of


the crowds in Belgium showing great defiance, but sadness and morning.


This outpouring of grief and the message of solidarity, that they


start looking at how did this happen. Finding there were a lot of


errors by the Belgium Security service. They have had quite a lot


of success in other areas, but it looks like this time there were


failures. And the president of Turkey has said, we found this


guide, we returned him, and we alerted the Belgian authorities.


They failed to pick him up. It is a They failed to pick him up. It is a


huge embarrassment. And talk on the front of the Independent of Interpol


knowing about at least one of these individuals as well? Yes, Brahim


el-Bakraoui, one of the brothers. There was an Interpol red notice for


him and on the 14th of July the Turks let the Dutch and Belgian


authorities know he had come back. The problem is, there are many


security services in Europe and if people come back from Turkey and


Syria and they haven't been able to find anything tangible on them as


being involved in terrorist training, is it guilty by


association? This is one of those times they missed what their


connections are. They did have links to the Paris attacks. They were


known, it wasn't like the two brothers were unknown to


authorities. They were note and they slip through. Crowds gathered, as


they have done all day lighting candles. This is becoming a pattern


we don't want to see, but we saw it after Charlie Hebdo, and we saw it


again in November after the Paris attacks. It is something we will


also have to get used to. Also moving increasingly now, stories of


the victims and the Guardian carries some of those on its front page?


This is a picture of one of the victims, a chef who is going to New


York, there with her husband and twin daughters. The only reason they


survived because the little girls wandered away to play off and their


father had followed them. Unfortunately their mother was


killed. 31 victims, their names are slowly coming out. It is important


to give more attention on the victims, instead of the terrorists.


They want to be notorious and have everybody feeling fear. This picture


of a beautiful woman and her spirits coming through our important. We are


not just focusing on the criminals. I am a newspaper man and I have


covered a lot of these events. I covered a lot of these events. I


hate to admit it, there is look at the number, how many people have


died, how big a catastrophe and tragedy is it rushed Jamaat that is


sometimes how we have two thing. The next thing is to find the human


story, which brings it home and the tragedy. You can have a better


understanding of the sheer horror behind it. The other thing that


strikes me about this prove Ian woman and her family, is this


element of extraordinary chance that exist in life, where something as a


very, very mundane as two little children running off to play


somewhere else in an airport departure lounge, turns out to be a


matter as to whether you live or die. We have attacks like this


happening in Iraq, in Syria and Turkey just recently. It is people


surviving by chance. They almost have this edge, if I act and to be


there, it will be my lucky day and if it turns out to be my lucky day,


I get away with it. It is this randomness. She is up Ruby, married


to a Belgian, at the airport to go and see sister in America. You


suddenly realise we are a much smaller world. We are an


international world. These random attacks, they are not just in one


country, they affect lives everywhere. Jason, two stories in


the Telegraph, go to the security scanning story. Passengers could


face security scanners at airport doors? We have a problem, at the


moment Airports are initially open, you drop off your loved ones and


then you go through security before you board the flight. Obviously what


happened in Zaventem airport, they were able to walk in before any


security. The difficult for any government is they have to balance


the disruption to everyday life. They have to consider, do we


actually bring in such security that the terrorists have won, with the


need to protect lives. It is a difficult decision. There is a good


case at somewhere like an airport to have the security at the beginning


rather than halfway through. But the problem with that, you will have a


queue outside the front door. Several airports around the world do


do this and you have to scan your bags before you even get to the


airport. The problem is, what do you do at Metro stations? You had a


large number of victims from the bombing at the Metro station. Can


you imagine if we had to deal with that that the underground and rush


hour here if you had to go to scanners? You have to be able to get


these cells uncovered before it gets that far. At the time the bomb is


that close, people will die even if it is not inside. The other


Telegraph story, quitting the EU would help our security. This is the


former MI6 chief, effectively bringing the EU debate into this


area? This is a very political stance to take. This is about the


debate before the referendum. We have three months to go before the


referendum about exiting the EU. And this thing where we would have


stronger controls. The Great Britain is not part of Schengen, and we do


have a border because we are an island. There are security checks.


His argument is it with the more secure. You will not stop the free


movement of people and we cannot afford to do that. Trade and the


political reality we are part of Europe, even if not part of the EU.


He said it with BB ability to jump the European Convention on human


rights and the difficulty in extraditing Abu Hamza. It is an


interesting take on this. These comments have made me question the


intelligence of the intelligence chiefs. One of the disadvantages


possibly as we would have to get rid of the European arrest warrant, the


international agreement so you can extradite a criminal. Few would


notice its passing. About 100 people a year, including a dozen terrorist


suspects from other European countries under the European arrest


warrant. The former head of MI6 to say if you would notice its passing,


I find incomprehensible. The Metro, a quote from one of the suicide


bombers, Jason? Seems to be a message left to his mother. It was


on his laptop found at the last moment. I am struggling with what to


think about it. It shows he was obviously in a disturbed state, but


he was willing to blow himself up. I suppose it is panicking before the


event, but it goes back to what you said before about concentrating more


on the victims and not on those who did it? Yes, you read these notes,


but it is hard to know what the motivation is to leave it on a


laptop. Does he know it is going to be found. It is like he is in a


hurry and doesn't know what to do. This is the express front page. 300


jihadists on our streets. This is a reference to the security concerns


that are real here as well. Yes, intelligence coming in from European


intelligence services, but also from Iraq, saying there are 300 or close


to 400 that have come back to the UK and could potentially pose a


terrorist threats. It says 300 jihadists on the streets, but nobody


knows if they are the watch. You would assume they are on some sort


of watch list and I assume now there will be more follow-up after what


has happened. The issue is, those who have gone to fight and then come


back. What happens? Probably a little bit alarmist. We do know the


last ones who have gone a comeback, do pose a risk. I'm not sure all the


300 who have returned do. What do we do to stop radicalisation, how do we


stop young minds being twisted by this, what is a poison. Nothing to


do with Islam, but it is a much more difficult issue. We are going to


change the subject. Stop refunding victims of online fraud, the banks


are being told. It is an interesting idea. Sir Bernard Hogan Howe, head


of the Met. People are becoming lazy. Not updating their security,


control on their computers and they are allowing themselves to be


conned. The banks are making it too relaxed and we need to amend


behaviour. I can see the argument behind it. If a bank does decide it


is no longer going to give refunds for fraud and they could lose a


competitive advantage. People should update anti-virus software and make


sure passwords are up today. There were 3 million cases of fraud but


only 9000 convictions. It shows you how widespread this is and maybe


something like stronger passwords can reduce the threat. That is it


from us tonight. Before you go, while we have been on air, several


others have come in. There is the daily Mirror, the two British


students convicted of plotting drive-by student is inspired by


so-called Islamic state to kill soldiers, police officers and


civilians in London. The Daily Mail is Kent Police stop lorry with 26


migrants inside. All of the pages are online where you can read a


detailed review of the papers. Thank you to my guests. Good buy.
