Just pausing the sport to have a look at The Papers that they're well

:00:22.:00:25.

be some Olympic stories. Front pages, we have not got long.

:00:26.:00:42.

The Telegraph leads with allegations of electoral fraud in some

:00:43.:00:47.

constituencies in the UK. The Financial Times has pictures of

:00:48.:00:52.

people queueing for food in Aleppo. The Times says 6000 people are

:00:53.:00:57.

trapped in hospital beds each night. The Guardian leads with the Labour

:00:58.:01:03.

leadership. The Express says Britain is expecting its hottest spell in

:01:04.:01:09.

August for 13 years. And the Metro, Katherine Grainger, but in's was

:01:10.:01:11.

decorated female Olympian after winning her fifth medal in Rio.

:01:12.:01:17.

Start with the Financial Times and the story from Aleppo of a gas

:01:18.:01:25.

attack. People are queueing to dry to get food, very little of which

:01:26.:01:34.

has been able to get through. It is a terrible situation. It looks like

:01:35.:01:38.

a gas attack. That amounts to a war crime. Medics are saying that the

:01:39.:01:47.

ceasefire is not enough for people to get out or for AIDS to get in.

:01:48.:01:51.

There was not a military respite during that time. -- for people to

:01:52.:02:03.

get out or for assistance to get in. The Syrian Government deny any

:02:04.:02:07.

involvement with this gas attack being reported. Last weekend we were

:02:08.:02:12.

reporting that two different rebel groups had banished to meet in the

:02:13.:02:17.

middle of the city. It is difficult to pin down the facts from Aleppo.

:02:18.:02:23.

Yes, is mounting evidence that a gas attack did take place and that can

:02:24.:02:31.

be linked to Assad then that is a war crime that it would not be the

:02:32.:02:36.

first war crime linked to Assad. There is already a mass of evidence

:02:37.:02:40.

linking him to a war crime but the problem is that the Russians have

:02:41.:02:44.

blocked any attempts to bring him before the International Criminal

:02:45.:02:50.

Court. It may not lead to anything of great significance. Let us move

:02:51.:02:55.

on to The Times. A schoolgirl who joined Isis is killed by an air

:02:56.:03:00.

strike. This is one of the three girls who left Bethnal Green last

:03:01.:03:05.

year. Kadiza Sultana, we understand from these reports, was killed in an

:03:06.:03:16.

air strike. Yesterday ITV News broadcast a recording of a telephone

:03:17.:03:23.

call between her and her sister in which they are discussing plans to

:03:24.:03:33.

get her out. She had regretted going and trying to join the Islamic

:03:34.:03:39.

State. It sounds like all three girls had a nightmare, they were put

:03:40.:03:43.

under House arrest when they arrived, they were peered up with

:03:44.:03:51.

Islamic fighters, hopefully it will put off other like-minded girls. It

:03:52.:04:01.

is a heartbreaking story. The other two girls are still out there and

:04:02.:04:06.

accounted for. We have to ask what is it that motivates young edition

:04:07.:04:13.

schoolgirls to go out there? What is the romantic lure of going out to a

:04:14.:04:22.

place of an speakable horror? It is not as if the conditions of where

:04:23.:04:30.

they were going to was not known. Absolutely. More workouts to go into

:04:31.:04:35.

understanding the psychology. There is something that taps into

:04:36.:04:41.

vulnerable in as children. Boys and girls, something that says come over

:04:42.:04:48.

here, this romantic idea of a fighter, or the wife of a fighter,

:04:49.:04:53.

it is horrific. The Times, NHS led Bocking increases, the cheeky

:04:54.:05:03.

expression for some people -- a difficult expression for some

:05:04.:05:08.

people. More than 6000 elderly people are apparently trapped in

:05:09.:05:12.

hospital beds because there are no adequate care facilities to look

:05:13.:05:19.

after them when they leave, so the hospitals cannot discharge them. In

:05:20.:05:24.

some cases it is the family that are at fault for not coming to collect

:05:25.:05:29.

them because they do not want to take responsibility for a clear of

:05:30.:05:35.

their own relatives. This points to a massive crisis in the health

:05:36.:05:38.

service and in care for the elderly in this country. It is not just that

:05:39.:05:43.

the families might not be able to capture them themselves, there is

:05:44.:05:48.

just not the facilities, alongside cats to local authorities, services

:05:49.:05:52.

such as meals on wheels, and the other thing that is interesting is

:05:53.:05:57.

the context of the big financial crisis in the NHS. Hospitals are

:05:58.:06:02.

closing Accident and Emergency at night-time, rationing is being

:06:03.:06:04.

introduced. There is a big health crisis coming up and it is something

:06:05.:06:08.

that the new Prime Minister is going to have to turn her attention to and

:06:09.:06:15.

after the Brexit thing there is going to be expectation that there

:06:16.:06:19.

will be a rush of money into the NHS and this will be a political

:06:20.:06:25.

nightmare on the horizon. ?6 billion would pay for a lot of social care

:06:26.:06:31.

if you could but adapt that we. Yes. It does seem ridiculous that we are

:06:32.:06:36.

spending all this money on keeping these people in hospital who do not

:06:37.:06:40.

need to be there and who are stopping other people from having

:06:41.:06:45.

operations. The ?350 million claim for Brexit is not going away. I do

:06:46.:06:50.

not think anybody thought that would be available the day after we both

:06:51.:06:55.

did. Or ever. A lot of people think that that money, it was a compelling

:06:56.:07:01.

message, and that the health service is facing a huge crisis, and people

:07:02.:07:04.

think that money is going to come soon from Brexit. We have to read

:07:05.:07:11.

the European Union first. That there will be an expectation that that

:07:12.:07:14.

money will be coming through to the health service after we have gone.

:07:15.:07:18.

There will be an expectation management issue to deal with. A

:07:19.:07:23.

blind eye turned to Muslim vote fraud.

:07:24.:07:34.

The corruption saga is seeing people are being to sensitive. F there are

:07:35.:07:47.

allegations of fraud that has to be taken seriously regardless of the

:07:48.:07:53.

community. I think going into full you should show some ID. I do not

:07:54.:07:58.

think that is a Draconian measure. I am always quite shocked that when

:07:59.:08:02.

you go to vote you just say I and such and such. You are supposed to

:08:03.:08:07.

have a voting card. You do not even need it. I think you have to take

:08:08.:08:15.

this seriously. You have to look into it. At the same time you should

:08:16.:08:21.

not be holding back because of cultural sensitivities, at the same

:08:22.:08:26.

time you should not be stigmatising certain communities. If introducing

:08:27.:08:29.

a system of bringing along identification, I had to bring a

:08:30.:08:36.

identification to a political meeting, it is not an unreal -- it

:08:37.:08:49.

is not an unrealistic suggestion. Having been found guilty of rigging

:08:50.:08:54.

votes and other corrupt electoral practices, and there has not been a

:08:55.:09:01.

prosecution. That sends the wrong message to other people engaging or

:09:02.:09:07.

thinking about engaging intellectual fraud. Australia blocks China deal

:09:08.:09:12.

over security fears in the Daily Telegraph. We have had the Hinkley

:09:13.:09:17.

Point issue. This is another failure of energy provision. A 6 billion

:09:18.:09:28.

deal whereby China was going to take 50% stake in the main electricity

:09:29.:09:33.

network in New South Wales. Australia is concerned about

:09:34.:09:37.

security issues and has blocked the deal. It is similar to what has gone

:09:38.:09:45.

on with Hinkley Point add Theresa May. It is surprising that deals get

:09:46.:09:49.

this far if there are security fears that crop up later on. To these

:09:50.:09:56.

may's people will see the reason they are concerns about Hinkley

:09:57.:10:01.

Point a long time ago before she, even in her wildest genes, thought

:10:02.:10:05.

she would be at Downing Street. But it raises interesting questions

:10:06.:10:10.

about public policy. How much money do we want to be taking from

:10:11.:10:17.

overseas, from other countries? One of the things with Hinkley Point,

:10:18.:10:23.

Theresa May was also talking about human rights issues and security.

:10:24.:10:29.

The Mitchell, rowing hero becomes our most successful Olympic. Hope

:10:30.:10:40.

for us all. Fifth gold medal and she had given up for a couple of years

:10:41.:10:44.

to think about whether she wanted to carry on. She is such a high

:10:45.:10:50.

performing human. She puts everyone else to shame. Not only is she an

:10:51.:10:59.

amazing Olympian, she is also clever, she is vice Chancellor of

:11:00.:11:05.

the University. You have not said she is Scottish. She is a Scottish

:11:06.:11:09.

as well. It is a fantastic achievement. With the goals we have

:11:10.:11:14.

just one in the cycling sprint we have gone up from ninth to eighth in

:11:15.:11:19.

the medal table and if we win a gold in the rugby sevens, if we beat Fiji

:11:20.:11:23.

in the match coming up, we move up to fourth place.

:11:24.:11:41.

Finally, Bhullar Tech helps record breakers

:11:42.:11:58.

-- pool tech helps record breakers to stay afloat. Something to do with

:11:59.:12:12.

shock absorbent lane dividers and slick gene is that it is in the

:12:13.:12:17.

interests of Brazil to see as many records broken as possible. The more

:12:18.:12:21.

records, the higher the viewing figures. But previous swimmers did

:12:22.:12:28.

not have that advantage and they are saying records broken. It is like

:12:29.:12:32.

the exam system, it gets easier every year. That is it for the

:12:33.:12:38.

moment but we will be back again at quarter past 11 to have another look

:12:39.:12:42.

at the front pages and we will know more about how the rugby is going

:12:43.:12:55.

on. Each edition of The Papers is posted on the page. Coming up next

:12:56.:13:00.

it is the
