cloud and eventually some outbreaks of rain from the east on Wednesday.

:00:00.:00:00.

There is the forecast for where you are available online.

:00:00.:00:12.

We will be taking a look at tomorrow mornings papers in a moment.

:00:13.:00:17.

First the headlines at 11:30pm: Pictures emerge of wreckage found

:00:18.:00:19.

in the Mediterranean Sea from the missing Egyptian airliner.

:00:20.:00:21.

It is reported that smoke was detected in two different areas

:00:22.:00:32.

of the plane before it went down, with 66 people on board.

:00:33.:00:39.

In football: Manchester United, who won the FA Cup

:00:40.:00:41.

by beating Crystal Palace 2-1 in extra-time at Wembley, are reported

:00:42.:00:44.

to be planning to replace their manager, Louis van Gaal, with the

:00:45.:00:47.

There are fears that new EU rules on e-cigarettes could result in people

:00:48.:00:57.

Ministers say the controls are part of a drive to improve public

:00:58.:01:10.

Labour has promised to be more radical

:01:11.:01:12.

The party leader, Jeremy Corbyn, told a conference in central London

:01:13.:01:17.

that he wanted to create a new economics that worked for all.

:01:18.:01:20.

A woman has been remanded in custody by magistrates,

:01:21.:01:22.

after a dog attacked 11 children in a playground in Northumberland.

:01:23.:01:27.

Claire Neal denied owning a dog that was dangerously out of control.

:01:28.:01:30.

She will next appear at Newcastle Crown Court in June.

:01:31.:01:33.

A driver has been arrested after 28 suspected migrants were

:01:34.:01:35.

discovered found stowed in the back of a lorry in Portsmouth.

:01:36.:01:54.

Hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers

:01:55.:01:56.

With me are Caroline Wheeler, who is the political editor

:01:57.:02:00.

at the Sunday Express, and the journalist Eva Simpson.

:02:01.:02:08.

Tomorrow's front pages, starting with the Sunday Times,

:02:09.:02:10.

leads with the much-delayed Chilcott Report into the Iraq War.

:02:11.:02:12.

The paper claims the report will deliver a brutal

:02:13.:02:15.

verdict on senior government figures, including Tony Blair.

:02:16.:02:20.

The Sunday Telegraph leads with the EU referendum.

:02:21.:02:22.

It says a Government leak has laid bare

:02:23.:02:24.

The Mail on Sunday has a warning from high street bosses.

:02:25.:02:34.

They say prices will soar if Britain leaves the EU.

:02:35.:02:37.

It reports 12 million Turkish migrants will head to the UK

:02:38.:02:41.

And the Sunday Post has a full-page photo of some

:02:42.:02:45.

of the aftermath of the Scottish Cup final at Hampden Park.

:02:46.:02:51.

So let's begin, and do you want to kick off this power, Eva, and we

:02:52.:03:01.

will start with the Sunday Times. The delayed Chilcott Inquiry, and

:03:02.:03:06.

they talk about brutal verdict. They have spoken with an anonymous source

:03:07.:03:09.

who they haven't named who has spoken with sources close to this

:03:10.:03:14.

report will stop he has said that Tony Blair is going to be savaged.

:03:15.:03:20.

Jack Straw also. He will not be let off the hook. And they are the

:03:21.:03:25.

preparations for the war, the aftermath, and what happened there

:03:26.:03:29.

are all going to be laid bare. There was a fear for a lot of families who

:03:30.:03:34.

lost loved ones, who lost soldiers who died, who felt they would be a

:03:35.:03:38.

whitewash. They have waited seven years for this, it has been a long

:03:39.:03:42.

time coming and I think for them it will take some comfort in knowing it

:03:43.:03:46.

won't be a whitewash, and actually the finger of blame will be pointed

:03:47.:03:50.

at the people who were at the top. And we have to stress that this has

:03:51.:03:58.

not been verified by anybody, it has come from this anonymous source who

:03:59.:04:03.

has been close to the enquiry. In many ways a report of this nature

:04:04.:04:07.

and of this volume and costs, you would expect it to come up with some

:04:08.:04:11.

kind of substantive verdict on what happened. For a long time now there

:04:12.:04:15.

has been reports that it would be somehow redacted, that spooks would

:04:16.:04:19.

go over it and remove some of the most sensitive passages so it really

:04:20.:04:23.

will come as some kind of comfort if this story proves to be true, to the

:04:24.:04:28.

families, that they are actually going to get some kind of answer

:04:29.:04:32.

about why Britain was taken into the Iraq War, and why these claims of

:04:33.:04:36.

weapons of mass destruction were made in the first race will. Back

:04:37.:04:42.

and it will also look at the aftermath of the failings which

:04:43.:04:45.

happened after. According to this piece in the Sunday Times, this is

:04:46.:04:50.

where Jack Straw comes in for the most criticism, because the

:04:51.:04:53.

preparation and planning for what happened after they toppled Saddam

:04:54.:04:57.

Hussein was not vigorous enough and this is why potentially it has sort

:04:58.:05:03.

of created this problem, the rise of ISIS as a direct result of this poor

:05:04.:05:07.

planning. But this hasn't happened straight away, we should stress that

:05:08.:05:12.

Chilcott Inquiry will not happen until after the referendum is

:05:13.:05:17.

concluded. The sixth of July, is the date at the moment. And we have

:05:18.:05:24.

already seen Tony Blair make its move, six months ago he did CNN

:05:25.:05:30.

programme, doing the sort of mea culpa thing, quite different to

:05:31.:05:36.

where he appeared at the enquiry and said he hadn't done anything wrong

:05:37.:05:39.

and would do it again. Talking of the EU referendum, this is our story

:05:40.:05:47.

about a poll conducted by a large polling company in Turkey. Turkey

:05:48.:05:51.

has been on the news agenda for a while now ever since an agreement to

:05:52.:05:57.

allow visa-free travel. This is trying to stop the flow of migrants

:05:58.:06:03.

coming from Turkey. And Turkey has long had an ambition to join the

:06:04.:06:08.

European Union, an ambition until recently supported by our Prime

:06:09.:06:11.

Minister who said only two years ago that Europe would be weaker without

:06:12.:06:16.

Turkey in it. So there has been lots of comments made about what the

:06:17.:06:21.

impact of Turkey joining the European Union would be, especially

:06:22.:06:24.

in terms of migrants coming to this country and putting a strain on our

:06:25.:06:28.

sort of public services. Basically it was suggested that we wanted to

:06:29.:06:32.

find out exactly what the intention of people in Turkey would be if they

:06:33.:06:36.

ever got to that point where they were a member of the European Union,

:06:37.:06:39.

and with that comes obviously free movement which would enable them to

:06:40.:06:44.

come not only as far as the Schengen zone, which is what happens with

:06:45.:06:47.

this visa-free travel, but actually to come into Britain and the answer

:06:48.:06:51.

we got back was that extend the of those survey had said that they

:06:52.:06:54.

would want to make Britain venue at home, that they would come to seek

:06:55.:07:00.

work -- Britain venue home. Many were young people who are finding it

:07:01.:07:08.

difficult to get a job in Turkey. Not too surprising. And as David

:07:09.:07:12.

Davis says, he has some sympathy with those people who would perhaps

:07:13.:07:15.

want to come to Britain for a better life, given... It would have to be

:07:16.:07:22.

asked across Europe if unemployed students in Germany, France, many

:07:23.:07:26.

countries, if they wanted to go to a more wealthy, the world's

:07:27.:07:29.

fifth-largest economy, they probably would want to do that. No-one that

:07:30.:07:34.

obviously is something that has been happening. That is why Britain has

:07:35.:07:37.

become a bit of a magnet given that we have a higher wage society, et

:07:38.:07:43.

cetera. 12 million is a huge number and a very large proportion of

:07:44.:07:47.

Turkey's population. To be clear, are we talking about people who want

:07:48.:07:54.

to come to Europe or the UK? Come to the UK. The question which was asked

:07:55.:07:58.

was if Turkey was to become a member of the European Union and Britain

:07:59.:08:01.

was to remain a member, because of course if we voted to leave it would

:08:02.:08:15.

never happen. So a lot of ifs. Pretty much every story from the

:08:16.:08:19.

European Union is and if and but in the maybe. You often find it is more

:08:20.:08:24.

of a trickle than a flood. I wouldn't quite say that even

:08:25.:08:32.

of a trickle than a flood. I wouldn't quite say that given that

:08:33.:08:35.

it is 200,000 a year coming in. There were camera crews waiting for

:08:36.:08:40.

the apparent big flood of Bulgarians who were supposed to come, it was a

:08:41.:08:45.

handful of people coming through. That was a reason for doing the

:08:46.:08:51.

poll. Rather than these stories, Michael Gove suggesting 5 million,

:08:52.:08:54.

we were trying to get something from the very people that it actually

:08:55.:08:57.

affects rather than just ask summarising and surmising what the

:08:58.:09:01.

situation might be. Takers on the Mail on Sunday. -- take us on.

:09:02.:09:09.

Unsurprisingly they are keeping with the EU theme and they have the

:09:10.:09:13.

headline which says that High Street bosses are telling us that prices

:09:14.:09:18.

will soar if we leave the EU. They have spoken to four Former High St

:09:19.:09:23.

losses, pretty well-known, Tesco's, says Breeze, Marks Spencer 's and

:09:24.:09:31.

they have all said that leaving the EU would have a devastating effect

:09:32.:09:38.

on the economy -- Sainsburys. He and people are looking for some facts to

:09:39.:09:45.

grasp onto as they make their decision whether to stay and leave

:09:46.:09:49.

and stories like this which are quite surprising to read from the

:09:50.:09:52.

Mail on Sunday but I'm sure people will read that and if they weren't

:09:53.:09:56.

already scared about leaving it would make them quite fearful. This

:09:57.:10:01.

is the kind of thing people are interested, we have had Iain Duncan

:10:02.:10:03.

Smith calling George Osborne Pinocchio. And we also heard the

:10:04.:10:12.

Chancellor talking about house prices yesterday, and it depends

:10:13.:10:15.

what it is that is your reason for voting. I think in the election if

:10:16.:10:19.

you look at the Conservative strategy at the general election it

:10:20.:10:23.

was very much to show the dangers of voting Labour to the economy and

:10:24.:10:26.

here again they are using the economy as the crux of the argument

:10:27.:10:30.

that we should stay part of the European Union. Whereas on the flip

:10:31.:10:34.

side, and we saw that with our front page, the issue of migration is the

:10:35.:10:41.

one that Brexiteers have latched onto as being the significant

:10:42.:10:44.

argument they are making as to why we should leave the EU. It is

:10:45.:10:48.

interesting that two different takes are being taken by these different

:10:49.:10:52.

sides. The Sunday Telegraph talking about trade, it seems to be saying

:10:53.:10:59.

that they are suggesting that Europe is in some way stymieing free trade,

:11:00.:11:03.

particularly countries such as France are really having a bit of a

:11:04.:11:07.

protectionist attitude towards the free trade deal that we as a

:11:08.:11:11.

European bloc are trying to pursue in relation to places like Latin

:11:12.:11:15.

America. It is selling us this idea that it is costing us ?2.5 billion

:11:16.:11:19.

to the British economy by the fact that we are not able to EU deals.

:11:20.:11:25.

And it is feeding into our fears because a lot of people think that

:11:26.:11:29.

about the EU, that it is trying to block our deals, unnecessary money

:11:30.:11:34.

of hours. But that is not huge if you compare it to the amount of

:11:35.:11:38.

money generated by trade with the EU. Well, I think billions, when you

:11:39.:11:44.

start talking about billions, if we think about the NHS for example, and

:11:45.:11:47.

that is the argument the Brexiteers have been making, that a couple of

:11:48.:11:52.

billion would make a huge impact on the sustainability of the NHS. It is

:11:53.:11:57.

interesting to see the Telegraph warning us about this problem with

:11:58.:12:00.

free trade and impacting on our economy but they have also done an

:12:01.:12:04.

interview with the transport Secretary, Patrick McLoughlin, this

:12:05.:12:07.

is all within the same piece, where he shows the flip side of the

:12:08.:12:11.

argument and says that if we leave the European Union it would have an

:12:12.:12:15.

impact on our varied buoyant car industry. You would think people

:12:16.:12:19.

would get bored of this, but we still have a month to go! It is so

:12:20.:12:25.

important, I hope not. Let's talk about something a little bit

:12:26.:12:29.

different. Caroline, let's talk about your page to back. Yes, in

:12:30.:12:34.

some ways this hasn't had a huge amount of coverage. But there was

:12:35.:12:40.

publication of some funding figures at the beginning of the year. The

:12:41.:12:46.

Department of Health announced it would reduce funding to our

:12:47.:12:49.

high-street chemists which are largely supported by government

:12:50.:12:53.

money. Basically the argument the government make is do we need as

:12:54.:12:57.

many high-street chemists as we currently have? It is true that when

:12:58.:13:00.

you walk down the high street you might see two or three in the space

:13:01.:13:04.

of a very short period of time but actually the results have been that

:13:05.:13:07.

the government's own figures have shown it could kill off a quarter of

:13:08.:13:14.

our high-street chemist. We are constantly being told go to your

:13:15.:13:19.

chemist first. They are such a wealth of information. And they are

:13:20.:13:25.

saying that actually there are 50 million GP appointments every year

:13:26.:13:27.

where you could actually be better dealt with by your high-street

:13:28.:13:33.

chemist and indeed 8% of people who turn up at Accident and Emergency

:13:34.:13:36.

would be better off going to a chemist. It will be on the agenda

:13:37.:13:40.

next week as a petition has been signed by a whopping 1 million

:13:41.:13:43.

people being delivered to Downing Street which is the largest ever

:13:44.:13:47.

health petition, on Tuesday. And Labour frontbench spokesman will be

:13:48.:13:57.

leaving this debate on Tuesday. And there was a little football match

:13:58.:14:04.

apparently. I don't know. I'm sure you watched it. The FA Cup final,

:14:05.:14:09.

which Manchester United were successful, beating underdogs

:14:10.:14:14.

Crystal Palace, and yet we hear that the manager is going to get the

:14:15.:14:19.

elbow, to be replaced by the former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho.

:14:20.:14:25.

Imagine that, you would want to go out and have a a few drinks and

:14:26.:14:30.

celebrate, you would want to celebrate with the players. It seems

:14:31.:14:36.

a bit mean. But I think from people who know far more about this than I

:14:37.:14:41.

do, Manchester haven't had a fantastic season, they haven't

:14:42.:14:45.

qualified for the Champions League, they have won a bit of silverware

:14:46.:14:48.

but it is just not enough for a club of their standing and magnitude.

:14:49.:14:52.

They should be grateful for what they have got. I'm sure lots of

:14:53.:14:57.

football fans like my husband who supports Rovers would be very

:14:58.:15:02.

grateful for that. If you have spent what they have spent on the team, it

:15:03.:15:07.

is not enough. I want to take us on to this very important story on the

:15:08.:15:10.

front page of the Sunday Times, and that is school bans whistle as too

:15:11.:15:17.

aggressive. The noise is felt to be too aggressive. And this is the kind

:15:18.:15:20.

of long line of things which have been banned in schools, winning was

:15:21.:15:27.

banned, and conkers, and things that are somehow are not supposed to be

:15:28.:15:30.

good for the psychological welfare of our children. So just to talk at

:15:31.:15:35.

Drewitt, a school in Buckinghamshire has said that at the end of playtime

:15:36.:15:40.

they are not going to blow the whistle, because it might frighten

:15:41.:15:47.

children and is too aggressive sounding. What they will do is put

:15:48.:15:51.

their hand in the air. If you have ever been in a school playground, I

:15:52.:15:56.

don't know how effective that will be. My memory is of a deafening

:15:57.:16:00.

bell, if you are standing underneath it. What about games and that sort

:16:01.:16:04.

of stuff, surely they still need a whistle? Professor Alan Smith is

:16:05.:16:09.

saying how our children going to be able to play football and hockey

:16:10.:16:12.

without the use of whistles? It sounds completely crazy, and sounds

:16:13.:16:17.

a bit crazy to me. She does still have the whistle in her pocket. For

:16:18.:16:24.

emergencies. If they don't see her raise her hand. And it is a

:16:25.:16:28.

handcarved whistle which is going to be in her pocket. Possibly that

:16:29.:16:32.

might not be so shrill? Is a brilliant cartoon showing a

:16:33.:16:36.

teacher, a child smoking by the bike sheds and she says phew, for a

:16:37.:16:42.

second there I thought you had a whistle in your mouth.

:16:43.:16:48.

Coming up next, it is The Film Review.
