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

:00:16.:00:18.

With me are the sports writer and commentator Tony Evans

:00:19.:00:22.

and journalist James Millar of the Sunday Post.

:00:23.:00:24.

A special late edition of the Liverpool Echo leads

:00:25.:00:36.

with the findings of an inquest jury into the Hillsborough disaster, that

:00:37.:00:39.

The Metro also leads with the Hillsborough inquest verdicts -

:00:40.:00:42.

including the possible criminal charges now facing former police

:00:43.:00:45.

'After 27 years, justice' - that's the Gaurdian's headline,

:00:46.:00:50.

with the front page showing some of the relatives of the 96 fans

:00:51.:00:54.

The New Day also leads with Hillsborough -

:00:55.:01:02.

including the criminal charges the CPS is considering following

:01:03.:01:06.

that's the headline on the Daily Mirror.

:01:07.:01:10.

The FT is running a story on the cyber threat increases

:01:11.:01:16.

following a raid on the Bangladeshi central bank.

:01:17.:01:18.

The Daily Mail puts the resignation of Labour MP

:01:19.:01:32.

Naz Shah who was an aide to the shadow

:01:33.:01:35.

chancellor after controversial comments on Israel

:01:36.:01:36.

On the front page of the Daily Express is a story

:01:37.:01:40.

about a new drug which is shown to tackle cholesterol

:01:41.:01:42.

without the distressing side effects of statins.

:01:43.:01:44.

And the Sun puts on its front page that the Prime Minister's inner

:01:45.:01:47.

circle are sending group texts on WhatsApp to keep EU

:01:48.:01:49.

We will start with a late addition of the Liverpool Echo. Tony,

:01:50.:01:59.

unlawful killing is what it has at the bottom, a composite of some of

:02:00.:02:09.

the relatives who died, is that the Liver building? Yes. You were there.

:02:10.:02:18.

What goes through your mind? Everyone was smeared, it was not

:02:19.:02:26.

accidental death, this was far from an accident. It was a colour amity,

:02:27.:02:32.

a collapse of police procedures. The people who be trusted to keep us

:02:33.:02:37.

safe failed and then they tried to deflect blame. This is a momentous

:02:38.:02:43.

moment not just for Liverpool, Liverpool fans, every time you send

:02:44.:02:48.

a loved one, a member of your family out to a public event, you need to

:02:49.:02:52.

know that the police will protect them, the emergency services will be

:02:53.:02:55.

there for them if something goes wrong. It is not about us, it is

:02:56.:03:00.

about keeping people safe and that is what we need to get over to the

:03:01.:03:05.

rest of the country, it is not about Liverpool or football fans, it is

:03:06.:03:09.

about being safe. It is about everybody. James, at the end, the

:03:10.:03:17.

storms of golden sky, that suggest that people want prosecutions

:03:18.:03:22.

following the unlawful killing verdict. That is the next stage of

:03:23.:03:27.

the story. It has been going on for so long. I camera member it starting

:03:28.:03:33.

in 1989 with the disaster, here we are 27 years later and we just had

:03:34.:03:37.

an FA Cup semifinal at the weekend and we are still talking about this.

:03:38.:03:42.

If there are to be prosecutions, we will still be talking about it for

:03:43.:03:47.

some time to come. It does feel like a chapter has closed, the story is

:03:48.:03:51.

ongoing, but this is the end of another chapter. Let's go to The New

:03:52.:04:04.

Day. Justice that the 96 finally is the headline, prosecutions for those

:04:05.:04:09.

people who have been held to be responsible as a result of these

:04:10.:04:13.

verdicts. Do you want to see people go to jail? I think they will be too

:04:14.:04:20.

old by the time it comes around. I want them to take responsibility for

:04:21.:04:26.

their actions and basically be shamed in public, be embarrassed for

:04:27.:04:31.

one the failure to do the job on the day that led to 96 people dying and

:04:32.:04:35.

secondly for attempting to deflect the blame onto other people. If it

:04:36.:04:41.

happened today and the same time frame was going, you would get this

:04:42.:04:47.

verdict in 2043, it is mind boggling. That is what the families

:04:48.:04:51.

have gone through. It has been such a long time, I am not sure there

:04:52.:04:56.

will be any value in putting people in jail, but there is value in

:04:57.:04:59.

saying if you do these things and you make such climate as mistakes,

:05:00.:05:03.

then you need to be responsible for them. -- terrible mistakes.

:05:04.:05:11.

Investigations have been going on for some time. And they will go on

:05:12.:05:18.

for some time. It is such a huge story. Not very often these days do

:05:19.:05:23.

we get a story that is across so many front pages. It says a lots of

:05:24.:05:27.

journalism, there are so many different angles to be covered in

:05:28.:05:33.

it. There is the issue of the ongoing criminal proceedings. There

:05:34.:05:36.

is a very human story, people who loved ones -- who lost loved ones,

:05:37.:05:44.

the cover-up, possibly at the heart of it, it is not so much mistakes

:05:45.:05:52.

made the day, it is a conspiracy to blame the fans. It is all this to

:05:53.:06:01.

unpick. The different papers are taking different angles, The New Day

:06:02.:06:08.

and that echoes seemed to be talking about the human side. -- The Echo.

:06:09.:06:21.

The Metro is looking at the truth. Suggestions that the police or

:06:22.:06:26.

culpable to a point in this. Without a doubt. The police and senior

:06:27.:06:30.

politicians, write to the senior level of government, they were

:06:31.:06:36.

briefed, when they knew who was responsible, they briefed against

:06:37.:06:39.

the fans. We need to go into that. The famous front page on The Sun,

:06:40.:06:50.

the truth, that has haunted us. People always say we have seen the

:06:51.:06:58.

truth, it was in the papers. I said would you steal from dead bodies

:06:59.:07:02.

washed and Mark and they said no, and then I would say well why would

:07:03.:07:05.

you think I would? -- steal from dead bodies? To deny responsibility,

:07:06.:07:18.

that is really worrying. Tony, those people in the press at the time did

:07:19.:07:23.

not want to know what the truth was. The stories that were being

:07:24.:07:27.

presented to them by the police were simply too good to check. Yes.

:07:28.:07:33.

Journalism is supposed to check the facts and tell us what is really

:07:34.:07:37.

happening, but there were certain people in the media who are happy to

:07:38.:07:41.

accept what they were being told. These are different times, 89 is a

:07:42.:07:47.

long time ago. A different attitude towards football at the time and

:07:48.:07:53.

football culture. And with good reason, it was easy to blame fans

:07:54.:07:58.

because people were willing to believe football fans were

:07:59.:08:01.

hooligans. It is a completely different game to what it is now

:08:02.:08:04.

with all the money that has gone into it and the improvements in

:08:05.:08:08.

stadiums and all the rest of it. People were much more willing to

:08:09.:08:13.

believe it. But the point is good journalists are supposed to then

:08:14.:08:17.

check those facts and confirm or deny them. The Sun certainly, with

:08:18.:08:25.

its initial the truth from page didn't, they just publish them. We

:08:26.:08:29.

know what the truth is now. The Metro has those two words on its

:08:30.:08:44.

front page, the -- The Sun does not mention Hillsborough at all. Kelvin

:08:45.:08:48.

MacKenzie made a joke about being made a Tory peer and said Lord

:08:49.:08:53.

McKenzie of Anfield has a ring to it. He has to credit -- discredited

:08:54.:09:02.

journalism. This is not so much about football fans. The Sun needs

:09:03.:09:05.

to realise it is about the cover-up and the miscarriage of justice and

:09:06.:09:10.

for its not even make the front page. It has not made the front page

:09:11.:09:16.

of the times either. It is an abdication of responsibility and it

:09:17.:09:20.

is poor journalism. The surprising thing about The Sun, you could

:09:21.:09:24.

almost understand if they had a front-page story where they say it

:09:25.:09:29.

is about a famous person and we will sell lots of copies of the sun, but

:09:30.:09:34.

it is utter guff. It is David Cameron uses social media. It is not

:09:35.:09:41.

a story, it is not a front-page story when there is this huge story

:09:42.:09:46.

going on elsewhere. It is almost as if they are trying to make The Sun

:09:47.:09:50.

the story and like they are mocking Hillsborough. They are keeping it

:09:51.:09:58.

off their front page. There is still bad feeling on Merseyside. They are

:09:59.:10:04.

100,000 sales down a day. What would bring it to an" to mark it is too

:10:05.:10:11.

late, they had an opportunity back in the 90s, even later where if they

:10:12.:10:16.

apologised and said we lied and made a huge contribution, maybe they

:10:17.:10:22.

would have lifted the boycott. -- could they ever get back their sales

:10:23.:10:32.

figures in Liverpool? In the Guardian, 27 years, a long time to

:10:33.:10:40.

wait. To go from The Sun to this, this is good journalism. The same

:10:41.:10:45.

goes for the Daily Mirror. Certain journalists have been all over this

:10:46.:10:49.

and not just all over it, they have gone into it and committed to it and

:10:50.:10:54.

they have covered it really well. They have not got so sucked up into

:10:55.:11:04.

it that they explain it to really owes -- that they can't explain it

:11:05.:11:09.

to readers in an investing way. From the day after the tragedy, this guy

:11:10.:11:15.

wrote a really emotive piece in the daily post in the bubble and he has

:11:16.:11:21.

fought every battle with the families and he has been a huge

:11:22.:11:28.

influence. The Guardian's investment in journalism, to let him be there

:11:29.:11:33.

almost everyday, it is fantastic. As we end the Hillsborough coverage in

:11:34.:11:37.

the papers, we will remind you that you can see a special documentary

:11:38.:11:39.

about the Hillsborough disaster. We have a bit of time to go onto The

:11:40.:11:52.

Daily Express. The first all-out strike by junior doctors. A sad day

:11:53.:12:00.

for the NHS says Jeremy Hunt. There is another day of all-out strikes

:12:01.:12:08.

that will begin. Yes, tomorrow. This is another massive story. There are

:12:09.:12:12.

two huge stories going on. Any other day this would be all over the front

:12:13.:12:18.

pages. As you say, there will be another one. The interesting thing

:12:19.:12:25.

is Jeremy Hunt can say what he wants. All the polls suggest there

:12:26.:12:30.

is pretty solid support among the doctors, given the choice, trust

:12:31.:12:34.

doctors or politicians, doctors will win every time. It does not look as

:12:35.:12:39.

if any side will get any closer to a deal. This is a precious thing, the

:12:40.:12:50.

NHS and we should all be behind it and Jeremy Hunt does not want it to

:12:51.:12:56.

continue. That is one point of view. Thank you for joining us for the

:12:57.:13:03.

papers. Don't forget all the papers are online on the BBC website. All

:13:04.:13:11.

therefore you on the website. -- there for you. Thanks again to our

:13:12.:13:20.

reviewers. You are watching BBC News, goodbye.
