rainfall for this part of England. The rain is really beginning to get

:00:00.:00:00.

up. More details of course what the rest of the week on the website.

:00:00.:00:09.

Hello, this is BBC News I'm Martine Croxall.

Hello, this is BBC News, I'm Martine Croxall.

:00:16.:00:16.

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

:00:17.:00:19.

David Cameron's challenged by two top Tory Leave campaigners to

:00:20.:00:25.

admit he can't cut migration while Britain remains in the EU.

:00:26.:00:28.

Downing Street called the comments a distraction.

:00:29.:00:30.

An inflatable boat's seized in Kent by immigration officials after 18

:00:31.:00:33.

Albanian migrants, including two children, are rescued from another

:00:34.:00:35.

The Iraqi Government says it's making progress in attempts to

:00:36.:00:39.

retake the city of Falluja from Islamic State militants.

:00:40.:00:47.

A gorilla is shot dead at a zoo in the US

:00:48.:00:49.

after it picked up a four-year-old boy who fell into the enclosure.

:00:50.:00:53.

Cincinnati Zoo says it shot the animal as the situation was

:00:54.:00:55.

Coming up, another trip for Alice Through the Looking Class. The

:00:56.:01:11.

latest take on Wonderland. And the other top releases in The Film

:01:12.:01:12.

Review. Hello and welcome to

:01:13.:01:23.

our look ahead to what the papers With me are

:01:24.:01:25.

the former newspaper editor, Eve Pollard and the deputy news

:01:26.:01:28.

editor at the Metro, Joel Taylor. Thank you for bearing with us, it

:01:29.:01:38.

was a long way tonight -- wait tonight.

:01:39.:01:39.

The i, which leads with Conservative rebel threats against

:01:40.:01:42.

A similar lead for the Guardian.

:01:43.:01:44.

It says David Cameron's hopes

:01:45.:01:45.

of avoiding terminal damage to party unity have been dented.

:01:46.:01:49.

The migrant crisis is the top story

:01:50.:01:51.

It reports people smugglers are increasingly using

:01:52.:01:54.

un-seaworthy vessels to cross the English Channel.

:01:55.:02:01.

The Mail also leads with the rescue of those migrants

:02:02.:02:04.

It says experts have branded Britain's

:02:05.:02:06.

The Sun's main story is the terror threat.

:02:07.:02:13.

It claims the so-called Islamic State is planning

:02:14.:02:17.

The Telegraph reports that Eton's most senior

:02:18.:02:20.

governor is threatening to resign from

:02:21.:02:23.

the Conservative Party over plans to force job applicants to declare

:02:24.:02:26.

The Times leads with the recent tightening

:02:27.:02:29.

It says that anti-alcohol lobbyists helped

:02:30.:02:32.

And the Mirror's top story is the shooting of that

:02:33.:02:36.

The paper calls it the miracle of the gorilla boy.

:02:37.:02:45.

As promised we are not starting with the EU referendum for a change, but

:02:46.:02:52.

a story you could argue is closely related to it. It's on the Daily

:02:53.:02:56.

Express and the Daily Mail and its migration, immigration. 700 more

:02:57.:03:09.

drown crossing the mid-. They are conflating two very different

:03:10.:03:11.

stories -- Mediterranean. Thousands of miles apart. What's interesting

:03:12.:03:19.

is people smugglers did... I think there were 18 Albanians who made it

:03:20.:03:26.

to tempt today. This is the immigration we should be worried

:03:27.:03:31.

about Tashkent. We shouldn't just be worried about immigration from EU

:03:32.:03:38.

countries -- Kent. It's people who come from not necessarily Albania

:03:39.:03:41.

but from North Africa the Middle East who want to blow us up that we

:03:42.:03:46.

should be worried about. The Daily Mail say there are only three

:03:47.:03:50.

boats. We don't know anything about these people and what their

:03:51.:03:55.

intentions are. They say Albanians, we won't discover until tomorrow

:03:56.:03:59.

where they have come from because it takes a while. But they are now

:04:00.:04:06.

saying... The Sun is saying, all people are saying, is they are

:04:07.:04:11.

worried about jihadists coming across not across the Mediterranean

:04:12.:04:16.

but the English Channel -- or people are saying. And the risks they are

:04:17.:04:21.

taking, we know the channel is such a busy shipping lane. If we see

:04:22.:04:25.

anything like what's happening in the Mediterranean in the English

:04:26.:04:28.

Channel it could be catastrophic and it brings the problem close to

:04:29.:04:31.

home. To an extent the government have wanted to leave the migrant

:04:32.:04:38.

crisis in the Mediterranean to countries in the Schengen area. And

:04:39.:04:43.

not take much responsibility for it. This is bringing it to our

:04:44.:04:48.

shores and we rely on being an island to add extra protection. If

:04:49.:04:53.

people start coming over from Calais in this risky way it's something the

:04:54.:04:57.

government will have to tackle. It sounds like an inflatable boat that

:04:58.:05:02.

began taking on water and that is why they were rescued. Terrifying.

:05:03.:05:06.

There were only three patrol boats going around this country. You have

:05:07.:05:11.

the National Crime Agency saying British small ports and marinas are

:05:12.:05:16.

wide open to people smugglers, crime gangs and terrorists. Listed in the

:05:17.:05:20.

Daily Mail, the other headline, Britain's wide-open borders -- this

:05:21.:05:28.

is in. The coastguard chief says it is as bad as the Mediterranean. We

:05:29.:05:33.

are in Island, which is meant to make us more secure and safe, but

:05:34.:05:37.

with that comes an enormous coastline. We have a huge coastline

:05:38.:05:43.

and masses of places around that coastline that boats can land. It's

:05:44.:05:48.

a hard thing to detect. They are talking about three boats. The

:05:49.:05:54.

geography and the coastline hasn't changed, just our assessment of how

:05:55.:05:59.

safe we are. Nobody ever thought that people would come across the

:06:00.:06:03.

Channel, which, as you say, is one of the biggest shipping areas in the

:06:04.:06:09.

world. But less dangerous unless far than going across the

:06:10.:06:15.

Mediterranean. -- and not as far. The chief coastguard in France says

:06:16.:06:21.

this will become very dangerous and as the weather gets better, more

:06:22.:06:26.

people will try. Yes, more people will take the risk. Let's return to

:06:27.:06:36.

the EU referendum on the Guardian. A backlash we understand. We haven't

:06:37.:06:42.

even had the vote yet. The government will not be concerned too

:06:43.:06:47.

much with this story. People like Ledeen Doris and Andrew Bridge, who

:06:48.:06:53.

have never been fans of Cameron -- Ledeen Doris. The PM's hopes of

:06:54.:06:58.

reuniting the Conservative party have been dented. I think we knew

:06:59.:07:05.

that anyway! I think they will be able to dismiss them. The suggestion

:07:06.:07:11.

is these backbenchers can get and people together for a vote of

:07:12.:07:15.

no-confidence in David Cameron. Even the Guardian say that. They are

:07:16.:07:20.

quoting Andrew Bridge and. And when they said dented, if I was a

:07:21.:07:24.

newspaper editor I would say damaged, dented is what you do to

:07:25.:07:31.

your bumper! It's a story because Nadine Dorries was on TV this

:07:32.:07:39.

morning and talking about it and saying that David Cameron would be

:07:40.:07:45.

toast if he didn't get 60%, absolute nonsense. When the criticism comes

:07:46.:07:51.

from people like that it is a different story. The Times, we have

:07:52.:07:59.

a robot... Thaiday you to depose me, Cameron tells rebels -- I dare you

:08:00.:08:07.

-- a rebuttal. Just guessing. It is bank holiday Sunday. He has probably

:08:08.:08:12.

said it to someone. He has already said he's not going to stand again.

:08:13.:08:19.

He is going in 2020. We know a leadership election is coming in the

:08:20.:08:23.

next few years. Exactly. You need someone on either side to replace

:08:24.:08:30.

him. The hard thing for Cameron is that people on the Remain side have

:08:31.:08:34.

been damaged. Osborne was the most likely candidate to replace him. He

:08:35.:08:40.

was damaged by Iain Duncan Smith resigning three days after the last

:08:41.:08:47.

budget. To try to get that continuity is something that Cameron

:08:48.:08:54.

will find tricky. Let's move onto a different subject, still on the

:08:55.:08:59.

Times. Anti- drink lobby group up official safety limits,

:09:00.:09:03.

controversial guidance that reduces public Theia. It wasn't so long ago

:09:04.:09:08.

that it was recommended we all drank less than the official guidelines

:09:09.:09:13.

were changed. Now it is 14 units, seven pints of beer over seven

:09:14.:09:20.

days. When it talks about anti- drink lobby, several of these

:09:21.:09:25.

lobbyists are doctors, like Sir Ian Gilmore, a long-time campaigner on

:09:26.:09:29.

these issues. The danger with this limit of 14 units, and the unease

:09:30.:09:37.

cabinet has felt, it is so low. Coming through the West End

:09:38.:09:42.

tonight, there are thousands of people out of there having a good

:09:43.:09:46.

time and will dismiss these guidelines out of hand -- solo. On

:09:47.:09:52.

the other hand you have Dame Sally Davies, the Chief Medical Officer

:09:53.:09:57.

for England, saying, as a woman, I reach for that glass of wine and I

:09:58.:10:01.

wonder if it will affect me because they seem to think there has been

:10:02.:10:06.

some research saying breast cancer and alcohol have some relation. We

:10:07.:10:12.

are still at the foothills of this research. She has said this before

:10:13.:10:18.

this report came out. It's like all these reports, you want to think

:10:19.:10:24.

that the people behind it an bias on either side. Is this the alcohol

:10:25.:10:30.

industry fighting back -- aren't bias. Is it temperance people? You

:10:31.:10:36.

want to think people who are totally disinterested in the sale of alcohol

:10:37.:10:41.

and only interested in our welfare are behind this. Many years ago when

:10:42.:10:46.

these guidelines were first put forward, was there any actual

:10:47.:10:51.

scientific basis for saying it was 21 units a week for men? They had to

:10:52.:10:57.

come up with a number. I seem to recall they have to come up with a

:10:58.:11:00.

number and it seemed as good as any. It was partly to do with people

:11:01.:11:06.

going into A on the weekend and working out how many units they had

:11:07.:11:11.

had that night that led them to end up in A

:11:12.:11:15.

Remember, we are quite rightly providing free treatment at the time

:11:16.:11:19.

you're ill and if you're sitting in A on a Friday night, you do see

:11:20.:11:23.

some pretty horrific things, and alcohol induces it all.

:11:24.:11:29.

The Mirror, terror at the zoo, miracle of the gorilla boy. This boy

:11:30.:11:36.

fell through a barrier and into this enclosure and then the gorilla drag

:11:37.:11:40.

him around in the water. Terrifying.

:11:41.:11:45.

It's the second case in the last few weeks that someone has fallen into

:11:46.:11:50.

an animal cage. The idea that it is a little one is pretty scary.

:11:51.:11:55.

Horrible, you can hear from the video footage that they are calling

:11:56.:11:59.

him to try to reassure him. Mummy loves you and so on. The boy almost

:12:00.:12:06.

looks stunned along with the gorilla that they are facing one another and

:12:07.:12:11.

the gorilla starts swinging it. It thinks it is a baby gorilla, which

:12:12.:12:15.

is what it would do with a baby gorilla. Amazing it came out

:12:16.:12:21.

unscathed. Absolutely. The Financial Times

:12:22.:12:24.

finally, we talked about alcohol not being good for you, but an expensive

:12:25.:12:32.

wine available. My way temps global connoisseurs with wine made on a

:12:33.:12:39.

Tibetan plateau -- Moet. They won't invite wine experts to tasting

:12:40.:12:45.

sessions in Burgundy and Bordeaux but in the Embassy in China. It

:12:46.:12:54.

almost looks like and another one, the main. There are enough

:12:55.:12:57.

millionaires in China who would be so proud that this amazing Champagne

:12:58.:13:03.

has been grown in their own vineyards -- the name. They may pay

:13:04.:13:09.

up. It's a bottle of fizz? I think they are producing a red wine in

:13:10.:13:16.

fact. What a shame, oh, dear! 300 euros bottle of wine of whatever

:13:17.:13:22.

sort, I don't think I have ever drunk anything quite so expensive.

:13:23.:13:27.

There's very little about the actual wine itself. It is clearly quite a

:13:28.:13:32.

clever little marketing exercise. It is. The vineyard has been chosen

:13:33.:13:42.

because it has similar climactic situation to France and 25,000

:13:43.:13:46.

bottles can be made there. I didn't know they were doing this in China

:13:47.:13:50.

but they are always looking for new territories. We are growing wine in

:13:51.:13:55.

Britain now. And there have been vineyards here for a long time but

:13:56.:13:58.

people used to laugh at English wine, but it has done well and won

:13:59.:14:04.

awards. Interestingly, this is the only French wine producer that has

:14:05.:14:09.

taken part in this escapade in China.

:14:10.:14:12.

You wonder whether it is because it will make good wine all-weather you

:14:13.:14:17.

say, Eve, or whether there's a good market for it. There probably is a

:14:18.:14:24.

good market it. -- or weather. Carrying the wine around cost a lot

:14:25.:14:29.

of money so it will get to other places in Asia as well. I wonder if

:14:30.:14:33.

we will get it over here but not at that price! We would need a

:14:34.:14:38.

supermarket to find a cutdown version.

:14:39.:14:41.

It would be fascinating if China becomes another place like

:14:42.:14:45.

California, everybody was amazed when they first started producing

:14:46.:14:48.

great wine. It's quite labour-intensive, 150

:14:49.:14:54.

Tibetan farmers work on the farm. I don't suppose they have anyway to

:14:55.:14:57.

limits! Could be very interesting to see if

:14:58.:15:01.

it ever appears over here but I reckon it will get snapped up long

:15:02.:15:06.

before then. That's it for the Papers. Thanks very much. Nice to

:15:07.:15:10.

have a different spread of stories for a change.

:15:11.:15:14.
