Good evening, welcome to the look ahead to what the papers will be

:00:19.:00:25.

bringing us tomorrow. I enjoyed by the political commentator Lance

:00:26.:00:28.

Price and Alison little they get the political editor of the Daily

:00:29.:00:33.

Express. Tomorrow's front pages starting with the Financial Times

:00:34.:00:37.

which leads with police looking for a terror network and possible links

:00:38.:00:41.

to Libya and Syria following the Manchester attack. The Metro shows

:00:42.:00:45.

an image of troops taking to the streets following Theresa May's

:00:46.:00:50.

warning of an imminent terror attack on British soil, The Guardian has

:00:51.:00:55.

one of the pictures supposedly from the forensic investigation published

:00:56.:00:58.

by the New York Times. It purports to show the bomb used in the attack.

:00:59.:01:04.

The Daily Telegraph reports on the Manchester attacker being flagged up

:01:05.:01:09.

to authorities multiple times over his extremist views. The Daily

:01:10.:01:13.

Express reports on the deployment of troops across the country.

:01:14.:01:21.

The Times reports that authorities were warned of the bombers extremist

:01:22.:01:33.

views by a relative. And pictures of the attacker 's brother arrested in

:01:34.:01:38.

Libya earlier today. Only one story on the front pages, I wonder if we

:01:39.:01:44.

can start in a sense, rather than with the text but with the images

:01:45.:01:48.

and an almost every front page is an image of troops on UK streets. What

:01:49.:01:53.

are your feelings looking at these pictures? Personally I find it

:01:54.:02:00.

rather learning, it does not make me feel safe, it flags up there is a

:02:01.:02:07.

crisis, we are almost at war which I think is part of the point of them

:02:08.:02:10.

being there, they are designed to reassure, these soldiers are around

:02:11.:02:15.

in Whitehall and at the moment they are a bit of a novelty and people

:02:16.:02:19.

are interested in seeing them because thankfully from my point of

:02:20.:02:22.

view we are not used to seeing them on our own streets. In other

:02:23.:02:30.

European capitals. Yes, and we tend to see our own soldiers deployed on

:02:31.:02:35.

TV in other countries. We don't tend to see them round here. We don't

:02:36.:02:42.

normally see armed police on the streets either. We have a

:02:43.:02:46.

principally an armed police force to CC weapons and the sort of

:02:47.:02:51.

extraordinary looking machine guns... And the equipment we have

:02:52.:02:56.

got... It's a shock to the system, but that is what it is designed to

:02:57.:03:00.

be, they are therefore two reasons, they clearly have a role to play and

:03:01.:03:04.

if the threat level is as high as we are told and there is a possibility

:03:05.:03:10.

of another attack at any point then you mobilise any defences you have

:03:11.:03:14.

got. But I think they are also they are for reassurance and I think the

:03:15.:03:19.

government and security services will be pleased to see these

:03:20.:03:22.

pictures on the front pages because that's the message they want to send

:03:23.:03:25.

out and the reason they were marching down Downing Street as we

:03:26.:03:29.

saw earlier today is that this is the picture they want to see. They

:03:30.:03:38.

are going to be static, they will be outside buildings, we are not going

:03:39.:03:42.

to be seeing them marching around on the streets. Hopefully not, and if

:03:43.:03:46.

we see them running we are in trouble. The idea is they will do

:03:47.:03:50.

static guarding to give the police more time to do the stuff only the

:03:51.:03:55.

police can do. And the real work of course, that's going to be done by

:03:56.:03:59.

the intelligence services, continuing to be done by the

:04:00.:04:02.

intelligence services and the police who are doing everything they can to

:04:03.:04:06.

see if there is a sale and where that threat might come from. These

:04:07.:04:13.

guys cannot help with that but they can protect some of the iconic

:04:14.:04:18.

places in the country that might be a target. Let's take a quick look at

:04:19.:04:22.

the front page of The Guardian as it has the other striking image of the

:04:23.:04:27.

day, photographs supposedly of the bomb used in Manchester published in

:04:28.:04:40.

the New York Times. It's certainly, this is supposed to be our strongest

:04:41.:04:46.

ally, these pictures turning up. Amber Rudd this morning said she was

:04:47.:04:51.

a bit irritated, very British, irritated that the Americans named a

:04:52.:04:55.

suspect before the British police were ready to do so. And now there

:04:56.:05:04.

are pictures from the police investigation. Nobody has denied the

:05:05.:05:08.

from that. Quite distressing pictures, you can see blood and the

:05:09.:05:15.

detail. Theresa May will be seeing President Trump at the Nato summit

:05:16.:05:20.

in Brussels tomorrow and as journalists and as British people we

:05:21.:05:23.

would love to see a huge bust up over this. We don't seem to be

:05:24.:05:27.

blooming Trump himself but if they are supposed to be our best friend

:05:28.:05:33.

they have a funny way of showing it. It's extraordinary, unprecedented,

:05:34.:05:36.

that a serious investigation should be compromised by a leak from the

:05:37.:05:41.

American intelligence, law enforcement agencies which is

:05:42.:05:45.

clearly what has happened. I don't think you can exaggerate the degree

:05:46.:05:49.

of puree there will be in Downing Street and Scotland Yard that this

:05:50.:05:58.

has happened. At every single level, and it will be from Theresa May, to

:05:59.:06:02.

the president, at every level they will be making it absolutely clear

:06:03.:06:08.

this potentially compromises the investigation carried out which is

:06:09.:06:12.

very serious indeed. Also of course how do you think the families of

:06:13.:06:16.

those who are still fighting for their lives feel when they see

:06:17.:06:21.

pictures like this? OK, much more on all of this at 11:30pm, I know you

:06:22.:06:26.

will come back with a more detailed look at those front pages. Breaking

:06:27.:06:31.

news to bring you know which is that a seventh person has been arrested

:06:32.:06:36.

in connection with the bombing after searches in central England. A

:06:37.:06:39.

seventh person arrested here in the UK. Let's take a look at the

:06:40.:06:42.

weather.
