We'll be taking a look at tomorrow mornings papers in a moment -

:00:11.:00:15.

The Foreign Secretary, Boris Johnson, has cancelled

:00:16.:00:19.

a planned trip to Moscow on Monday, in the wake of this week's chemical

:00:20.:00:23.

He said the UK deplored Russia's continued defence

:00:24.:00:28.

Firefighters in Hertfordshire have launched an investigation

:00:29.:00:32.

into what caused a fatal blaze at a residential care home.

:00:33.:00:38.

Two people died and 33 others has to be rescued

:00:39.:00:40.

at the Newgrange Care Home in Cheshunt this morning.

:00:41.:00:49.

Norwegian police say they have found a "bomb-like

:00:50.:00:51.

device" in central Oslo, and a suspect is being held.

:00:52.:00:53.

Swedish police say they're increasingly certain that the Uzbek

:00:54.:01:00.

man they've arrested is the one who carried out yesterday's

:01:01.:01:03.

attack in Stockholm, but they believe others may also

:01:04.:01:05.

Workers at three rail companies have been taking part

:01:06.:01:08.

in a 24-hour strike on the day of the Grand National race.

:01:09.:01:11.

The action, involving Southern, Merseyrail and Arriva Rail North,

:01:12.:01:13.

is part of a dispute over staffing and the role of conductors.

:01:14.:01:22.

An lead the author I will speak to the author Scarlett Thomas about her

:01:23.:01:28.

switch to writing for children and the creation of a fictional world

:01:29.:01:30.

full of magic and danger. Hello and welcome to our look ahead

:01:31.:01:47.

to what the the papers will be With me are the broadcasters

:01:48.:01:51.

Penny Smith and Charlie Wolf. Good evening to you both. Before we

:01:52.:01:57.

speak to them, let's have a look at some of those front pages, starting

:01:58.:02:00.

with Boris Johnson's decision to cancel his trip to Russia, that the

:02:01.:02:02.

lead in many of the papers. The Mail on Sunday says the Kremlin

:02:03.:02:05.

has "slammed" Mr Johnson The Sunday Times says Britain

:02:06.:02:07.

and America will directly accuse Russia of complicity in war

:02:08.:02:11.

crimes in Syria. The Sunday Telegraph says

:02:12.:02:13.

the Foreign Secretary's cancelled trip -but the picture that dominates

:02:14.:02:15.

the front page shows the owners of the Grand National winner,

:02:16.:02:24.

One for Arthur. And The Independent has it's

:02:25.:02:26.

own interview with the EU's chief Brexit negotiator who wants

:02:27.:02:28.

Theresa May to consider a plan to help British people

:02:29.:02:31.

who want to retain EU citizenship. So let us begin. Penny, would you

:02:32.:02:47.

start us off? Newspapers full of the stories about Syria. The Sunday

:02:48.:02:52.

Times, Russia accused of complicity in Syria war crime and Boris is not

:02:53.:02:58.

going to Russia. Complains of Russian complicity, a Russian drones

:02:59.:03:03.

flew over a town before one of the warplanes dropped that gas bomb

:03:04.:03:09.

which killed around 80 people if a Russian aircraft bombed a hospital

:03:10.:03:15.

later to destroy evidence. A picture of a chemical weapons container from

:03:16.:03:21.

where the attack was launched. Russia accused of complicity in

:03:22.:03:25.

Syrian war crime and Boris Johnson... The US did Boris Johnson

:03:26.:03:38.

because of his notorious Florida language. Tim Farron also coming in

:03:39.:03:46.

saying the Foreign Secretary is a poodle of Washington, echoing the

:03:47.:03:54.

comment on Tony Blair, was having his diary managed across the pond

:03:55.:03:58.

and think it's pretty shameful when even Trump judges you to be a

:03:59.:04:02.

buffoon. OK. Charlie, what can we talk a moment, that is going to

:04:03.:04:07.

happen, Rex Tillerson the Secretary of State, he is going to have to end

:04:08.:04:12.

up going to Moscow. The talk in the last couple of days is if the

:04:13.:04:17.

Russians would refuse to have him over. That's not the case, he is

:04:18.:04:20.

going over. He has a serious message. I don't think Boris Johnson

:04:21.:04:25.

is a poodle, I didn't think Tony Blair was, to be honest. I think

:04:26.:04:29.

it's important in a situation like this, maybe they need to be

:04:30.:04:33.

co-ordinated and have one man do all the talking. The country that is

:04:34.:04:39.

taking the action, the United States, it seems it's only right its

:04:40.:04:42.

Rex Tillerson that does the speaking. You are often in a

:04:43.:04:52.

position to explain Donald Trump. It looks like a massive flip-flop in

:04:53.:04:57.

his approach to Syria. What do you make of it? I think this is called

:04:58.:05:03.

leadership. Yes, he had a position that was noninterventionist, I don't

:05:04.:05:06.

want to be the world's policeman and so on. When you sit in the chair...

:05:07.:05:11.

A couple of times a significant, the first time when you get the first

:05:12.:05:15.

briefing when you've been elected and you are the President-elect and

:05:16.:05:19.

you get the first CIA NSA briefing, that's a pretty heavy duty meeting.

:05:20.:05:22.

Then you sit in the chair for the first time on the 20th of January.

:05:23.:05:27.

You are sitting there and you realise, this is in the national

:05:28.:05:30.

interests of the United States, and national security issue. The point

:05:31.:05:38.

is... They have this tweets in the Daily Mail. We should stay the hell

:05:39.:05:42.

out of Syria, the rebels are just as bad as the current regime. If are

:05:43.:05:46.

going to continue to be stupid and going to Syria... Whatsapp and now

:05:47.:05:54.

though is they've had an event and he's been sat down with his advisers

:05:55.:05:59.

and they are the one saying, if they get away with using chemical weapons

:06:00.:06:02.

here, they will use them elsewhere and produced within the United

:06:03.:06:07.

States. This is some other as to be held to account and that's what he's

:06:08.:06:12.

done. Moving on, it got a mention before but let's pick this up, this

:06:13.:06:18.

business about Boris', Boris Johnson's role in all of this. It is

:06:19.:06:22.

a bit curious. On the one hand I think you are saying he's a serious

:06:23.:06:26.

player and so on, but it does look as though people said, come on,

:06:27.:06:31.

whoever they are, the Foreign Secretary would probably be told to

:06:32.:06:34.

stay out of it at the moment, it's an American affair. I think it

:06:35.:06:38.

probably is at this juncture. It was America that launched the missile

:06:39.:06:43.

strike, not Great Britain. It is Donald Trump in the position of

:06:44.:06:46.

being the leader of the biggest country and strongest democracy on

:06:47.:06:50.

the planet. I think it makes sense. Again, I don't see working together

:06:51.:06:57.

that it makes you somebody's poodle. I think Boris Johnson sees the

:06:58.:07:00.

importance of what's going on and agree to it. What I do find

:07:01.:07:04.

interesting, the Sunday Times article, the Defence Secretary

:07:05.:07:15.

Fallon talking about a regime change, if I'm reading it right.

:07:16.:07:22.

We've heard that before. Normally it's our government that talks about

:07:23.:07:25.

regime change. They've backed off of that, haven't they? The Mail on

:07:26.:07:33.

Sunday has a lot on the inside about all of this, various things, talking

:07:34.:07:40.

about Ivanka Trump,... She's the one that treated saying it made me cry,

:07:41.:07:46.

because of the children involved. And as I mentioned, we have the

:07:47.:07:50.

whole of what Donald Trump hazard. This is a president who lives on

:07:51.:07:55.

social media, isn't it, really? We have all these other things. In the

:07:56.:08:02.

past, when Obama talked about chemical attacks but backed off from

:08:03.:08:09.

attacking anything in Syria, the president Musket congressional

:08:10.:08:11.

approval before attacking Syria. Big mistake if he doesn't. That didn't

:08:12.:08:20.

happen. I was talking to Richard Kemp, in Washington on the way down,

:08:21.:08:25.

neither of us experts on this, but I think he would have it being of the

:08:26.:08:31.

national interest, the use of chemical weapon, he'd have the

:08:32.:08:36.

authority, be it Obama or Donald Trump. In fact, I would maybe

:08:37.:08:39.

suggest, and not an expert on this, maybe because President Obama set

:08:40.:08:46.

the red line, President Wright could almost use the authority of that.

:08:47.:08:51.

Say that was the Red Line. There is one other thing, a little box here.

:08:52.:08:56.

When we are looking at the Mail on Sunday, about somebody working for

:08:57.:08:59.

Jeremy Corbyn. That will annoy some people if it's right. Stupid is as

:09:00.:09:04.

stupid does. There's always a man in the crowd that has to come up with

:09:05.:09:07.

some statement and put their foot in them up. This is Murray, a political

:09:08.:09:13.

adviser to the Shadow Cabinet who basically said we are baby killers.

:09:14.:09:20.

I guess we're just as bad as Assad. Basic moral relativism. It's

:09:21.:09:27.

unfortunate when a missile strike kills civilians that weren't

:09:28.:09:29.

intended, but that's a big difference between those, going out

:09:30.:09:34.

using chemical weapons to kill innocents on purpose and

:09:35.:09:42.

indiscriminately. OK, let's go on. I think we can look at Stockholm on

:09:43.:09:47.

what's going on there. That is another thing. The Sunday Times. I'm

:09:48.:09:54.

hunting around for it. The Telegraph I think. The bomb on the hijacks

:09:55.:10:00.

lorry failed to go a terrible situation, echoes of what happened

:10:01.:10:05.

at Westminster bridge. A lorry that ploughed into a Stockholm department

:10:06.:10:09.

store and killed four people was carrying a device that failed to

:10:10.:10:12.

detonate. The terrorists responsible had actually been on their radar,

:10:13.:10:16.

the police said. This is a migrant Brie labourer. A bit scary, even

:10:17.:10:26.

with the Westminster story the words, the perpetrator was known to

:10:27.:10:29.

the police. I am not holding the police necessarily to account, but

:10:30.:10:34.

it makes you wonder. A little bit scary, there are many creative ways

:10:35.:10:43.

to kill people. In the past I've had people going on about, we don't want

:10:44.:10:48.

America with all the guns another thing. It's not the guns, anything

:10:49.:10:53.

as simple as a knife, a vehicle... And a bomb. You come back to the

:10:54.:11:01.

statistics about the fact you are more likely in America to be killed

:11:02.:11:05.

by a child with a gun than to be killed in a terrorist attack. I

:11:06.:11:10.

suppose that's a side issue, isn't it? They've discovered already that

:11:11.:11:14.

vehicles are extraordinarily effective. And of course you don't

:11:15.:11:20.

have to, you don't need a bomb. Obviously that would have caused

:11:21.:11:26.

even more, terrible devastation. Indeed. We have the news tonight the

:11:27.:11:30.

police in Oslo appear to have found a new device of some sort cordoning

:11:31.:11:37.

the city. Now to a domestic story on the front

:11:38.:11:41.

page of the Sunday Telegraph. Scrapheap beckons for council tip

:11:42.:11:44.

charges. I think Penny, you said to me, I feel strongly about this, do

:11:45.:11:49.

you, what's it about? I do. I'll tell you what I get really annoyed

:11:50.:11:52.

about, fly-tipping. It destroys so much. There are certain areas,

:11:53.:11:58.

beauty spots, which are just covered in rubbish, because somebody... You

:11:59.:12:04.

pay somebody to take away your rubbish and because of the fact you

:12:05.:12:08.

have to pay to have it disposed of, they going tip it any old where. As

:12:09.:12:12.

we know, B gets later, and I know that because I've done little

:12:13.:12:15.

experiments near where I lived. And if you leave a bit of rubbish where

:12:16.:12:25.

it is... By the time... If you leave it, by the time you walk back from

:12:26.:12:29.

the shops, it's got new friends with it. It sounds like the broken window

:12:30.:12:36.

syndrome. It is. I will tell you what I've noticed since owning a dog

:12:37.:12:40.

in the last year, the amount of burger wrappers what scares me

:12:41.:12:44.

chicken bones. If the dog gets close, can kill them. Human

:12:45.:12:52.

detritus, Eder wannabe any more descriptive map. -- I don't want to

:12:53.:12:55.

be any more descriptive than that. I watched undercover costs the other

:12:56.:13:01.

day, in Utah, where I used to live, very nice neighbourhood. This wide,

:13:02.:13:06.

clean, you could eat off these streets. I'm thinking, North

:13:07.:13:10.

Finchley are supposed to be a somewhat salubrious area, and it was

:13:11.:13:16.

at one point. Even in nicer areas, St John's Wood, I've walked around

:13:17.:13:20.

areas and there are burger wrappers. This is about saying... They are

:13:21.:13:27.

saying charging at all for taking your rubbish to the council tip is a

:13:28.:13:32.

bad idea. Exactly. And eventually it ends up with stuff... They should be

:13:33.:13:42.

paying us. Go and do some up cycling. It's a way of local

:13:43.:13:44.

authorities raising money. If they can't raise it this way, they will

:13:45.:13:49.

find another way. There is an interesting supply and demand

:13:50.:13:52.

argument. I went to the tip on Thursday to drop off some cardboard.

:13:53.:13:59.

There was about half an hour queue in business hours. If it's a product

:14:00.:14:02.

everybody wants... I say, charge them, there is a market. There's

:14:03.:14:10.

money in garbage! Pictures on a lot of the front pages, two very happy

:14:11.:14:14.

ladies. Who wants to explain why they are happy? Charlie? I love this

:14:15.:14:22.

story, don't we? What is it about? You've been having it on your sports

:14:23.:14:26.

news. This is about the two owners of the Grand National winner, which

:14:27.:14:35.

is One For Arthur. They bought this horse because their husbands play

:14:36.:14:38.

golf together and they are always off on the golf course. Two golf

:14:39.:14:43.

widows, debutants, and they said, it's just been brilliant. Our

:14:44.:14:46.

husbands play golf together, we wanted to do something, the plan was

:14:47.:14:51.

conceived after a lot of gin at Kelso one-day stop and that's what I

:14:52.:14:56.

love about jump racing. This is not the only story of this type. As

:14:57.:15:01.

someone that sees an old nag in the field... I don't think it's an old

:15:02.:15:06.

nag! They see a horse in a field a thing, we could train that up. The

:15:07.:15:11.

National, of course, I missed it today believe it or not and I didn't

:15:12.:15:16.

have a chance but the money down. It's the one race where form doesn't

:15:17.:15:20.

matter. It's not how good... Nicholas Owen could be the horse in

:15:21.:15:24.

front of us, we could be the star horses, you fall at the fence and

:15:25.:15:27.

take us down with you, the two winners. Nicolas, were you in the

:15:28.:15:32.

Grand National again? What's going on! We won't discuss how Mrs Owen

:15:33.:15:37.

handed ?10 to a bookmaker this afternoon never to be seen again...

:15:38.:15:45.

You didn't back the 14-1? That is it for the papers this hour.

:15:46.:15:46.

Thank you Panny and Charlie, you'll both be back at 11.30

:15:47.:15:49.

for another look at the stories making the news tomorrow.
