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

to the migrant story, but focuses on the closure


of what it calls the Calais migrant shanty town.


It says fires blazed as migrants and police clashed.


The Guardian also reports on the demolition


of the Calais camp, and fears about the safety


The paper also splashes on calls from Labour MPs to act over a legal


precedent set in Ched Evans' rape retrial.


Violence amid the closure of the Calais camp


also dominates the Times' front page.


It claims anarchists are stirring up trouble.


The paper also has a report from northern Iraq on the fight


against the Islamic State around Mosul.


So, we'll begin with what's about to happen in Calais in the next few


hours with the closure of this camp of several thousand migrants that's


grown up over the last few years. Known as the Jungle. Here it is on


the Telegraph with the main picture story showing police and migrants


fighting running battles on the Yvonne of the enforcement of


eviction orders. Some migrants saying, Tom, that this is the place


they will insist upon staying if they want to come to Britain -- on


the eve of. Yes, this is a launching point for a lot of migrants to come


into the UK via trucks and things over the years. They're here because


they have ties in the UK, some have family and they believe they have a


better future here. There are aims to ship them to 300 centres around


France that could be hundreds of miles away. They could move up the


coast or other areas, potentially areas where they might be able to


get in. Clearly they want to be there. And there's also talk of


anarchists and others coming so there may be violence tomorrow or


more violence in clearing the camp, it's unlikely to go without


incident. Lucy, the other part of the story is that 70 migrants in


their teens have found themselves in Devon? They are now in great


Torrington. There seems to be a jewellery action to get. Some people


are saying that's fine, others are saying they haven't been consulted


in Torrington and they are a small place and 70 youths is a lot of


people to come here. All in one go. All in one go. They have set up Bay


Centre and some people have said it will be fine, but it will be


interesting to see what the teenagers said -- Bay Centre. They


always imagine it will be in the middle of London -- a centre. There


are stories of people going to the middle of Scotland and they all want


to leave because they can't bear it. I'm sure Great Torrington is a


lovely place. As is Scotland. Yes, the middle of Scotland. Obviously


this camp is being cleared, people will have to go somewhere. There's a


lot of fears about what will happen. There's no register, what will


happen to the people who fall through the net? The Times has the


story about anarchists putting up a last stand against mass eviction and


the concern about what happens to those lone children if they're not


on a register and nobody can keep track of them. It's been a concern


for the newspapers and it's been a story for decades, the Jungle has


been this iconic thing and it's amazing how it has dominated the UK


perception of migration to the country despite being so small,


official numbers are around 7000 people. That's quite a lot to have


in Calais. That is why it is such a story, surely? About 1 million


people in Germany last year! So it's an enormous problem, the way in


which it covers our perception of the issue of migration into the UK


is strange giving the sheer size compared to others. And when we


think about legal migration is a fraction. Let's stay with the Times,


pointless treatments cost NHS ?2 billion a year. Where do these


figures come from? About these have come from the Academy Medical Royal


Colleges. They have told us something we know a bit, we have


seen other studies where people go to the doctor and they end up


getting treatments they don't need, maybe they get tablets because it


makes them feel comfortable but they aren't made better by those tablets.


It is new information that confirms that. It's interesting. I do a lot


of data reporting and I'm always very interested in these things,


these are conversations I have had with the NHS to get data that is


available in other countries that could help identify the areas where


there are inefficiencies. May be over diagnosing certain drugs here


compare to other countries, the NHS doesn't want to release that


information and it could help. You don't need a placebo, do you? I


don't have a doctor, I never go! What is interesting is the concept


that patients think what might happen if nothing was done. The idea


of going to the doctor and saying I feel ill and the doctor potentially


could say there's nothing I can do for you. There's the idea that


something needs to happen and something needs to be done when


actually it doesn't necessarily. Too many blood tests. You can use tap


water to wash cuts rather than saline solution. It's interesting


how that would work if people went and they said there's nothing we can


do for you. The risk of mistreatment isn't played up by doctors, maybe


they should play that up more. Inside the Times, we are doing well


out of this tonight, P2. -- page two. Offering Nicola Sturgeon direct


access to Number 10. If I was Nicola Sturgeon I would keep on going down


that line and saying I want nothing to do with you. I hang my head!


That's what I would do. It is all sorts of fiddle Naga link, a bit of


access to this, a bit of that, single market maybe. Is that a word,


naggling? Yes, it is when you do a bit of Wheeler dealing in the equine


market. A bit of this, a bit of that, they will work it out, but it


doesn't really mean anything. Naggling, I will write that down. I


would say to her, I've had enough of all of this. She's not going to turn


down the chance to talk to her and put the case for Scotland. The case


she has is an interesting one, the idea would be that Scotland has a


flexible Brexit. A Flexit? Very good. Another made up word. That


would be very unusual and it is without precedent and it would be


hard to see how that would work exactly. But what's interesting, if


she does get into the room and she hears these plans or negotiating,


the government says they aren't saying what the strategy is -- for


negotiating. They aren't going to reveal the recipe for the secret


sauce. She might get inside and say this source doesn't taste very good


but she might leave the room and tell people. She might say that the


source doesn't exist. Indeed. It's part of increasing scrutiny over the


government the Cotia can position because she could walk out and say


there's no strategy -- negotiation. The future of the union could rest


upon it? Absolutely, what are we going to do? It is worrying. It is


scarifying. You do that to your lawn. Not my lawn, never mind. Mine


never gets scarifyied, it never gets any attention. To the Mirror, this


reporting from Chris Hughes from the frontline in Mosul. It's been on the


front page and many pages inside have given over to it. Hit the Mad


Max car now, a suicide bomber heading for them, giving you an idea


what it is taking to out these IS militants from the city. Chris


Hughes has had some hairy moments and we see other reporting from


Anthony Loyd and others today in the Times. Some real underground


reporting. Clearly journalists have been invited to ride along with some


of the Peshmerga forces and the central government forces. It's a


very big operation. As I said, some near misses from some of the


correspondence here. The fighting seems to be going in favour of the


Western backed government forces. -- correspondents. They have approached


the outlying towns of Mosul but not Mosul itself. Looks like there is


stern operation waiting for them in the city. The argument was in the


beginning when ISS got such a foothold in parts of Iraq that there


was a vacuum because the political situation was such a mess that they


could make those inroads -- ISIS. This has to be a permanent solution,


hasn't it? You wonder if the situation in Iraq is good enough to


keep them at bay. It's very difficult to know where this is


going to end up. Obviously you've got the Peshmerga there and there


must be something given as it were to the Kurds. Yes. That's


potentially a very difficult situation. This is amazing what


Chris Hughes has been doing. That -year-old war reporting is something


we don't see very much now. These reports and photographs are amazing.


It really brings to light how difficult and horrible and how nasty


what's going on there is, when you are so far removed it is difficult


to get a feeling for it but that's what he does, he absolutely brings


to you what is going on there. It is deeply horrible. >>


I hope the Iraqi forces are equally as open, in Falluja afterwards we


saw horrible tragedies and it was difficult to report on the ground


and the outcome was a high degree of risk for the journalists involved


for doing that. Hopefully their willingness to show the battlefield


to the reporters continues. Back to the Times, almost a full house, page


28, page 29, Baghdad bans alcohol sales to appease extremists. Why are


you looking at me? You spotted it! It did catch my eye and not just


because of my nationality. No Guinness? Yes! I was able to get a


drink when I was in Iraq some years ago. Looks like it won't happen


again. There is a serious side to this. Yes, it is a minority and this


is why it caught my eye. Part of the problems, as you alluded to earlier,


has been blamed on Nouri al-Maliki, the previously the ship was


divisive, is this new government more inclusive? It was certainly


dominated by Shias -- previously the ship. So the question is this


another sign the government won't be as inclusive as it needs to be to


bring the country together -- previous leadership. That said, we


have run out of time. Look how disappointed they are! Naggling, we


will look it up to make sure it is in the thesaurus and dictionary. Tom


and Lucy, thanks for coming and spending your Sunday evening with


us. Next, The Film Review.
