The Guardian focuses on how free movement of people may continue


Brexit also makes the Telegraph's front page - the paper says foreign


criminals will be able to stay in the UK after the UK


The Times also leads on Brexit - and also mentions the former


American Football star OJ Simpson being granted parole.


The Mirror runs with an investigation into the police


questioning children caught carrying knives.


The Daily Mail claims some BBC stars benefit by avoiding tax.


The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are on The Sun's front page,


noting a child's practical joke during a photo op


And the Express runs with a study claiming that snorning has been


We will discuss some of those right now and let's kick off with the


times and they have got OJ Simpson, a face from the past, 70 years old


and just been given parole after serving nearly nine years. Acquitted


for the murder of his wife but jailed for an armed robbery. It is a


real-life soap opera going on for 22 years, 22 years since he was cleared


of double murder of his ex-wife, and no prisoner appeared before the


parole board were all the drama of the American legal system, all


before the cameras. The case nine, ten years ago was of kidnap and


using a deadly weapon and robbery involving memorabilia which he


claimed was his own memorabilia that the man was attempting to steal. He


served the sentence, nine out of 33 years and is now a reformed man, he


says, but not without a flash of temper in front of the judges when


he suggested that it wasn't his memorabilia that he was trying to


get back. But for the younger generation that maybe don't remember


the original trial and all the drama, there was a dramatisation


recently on TV recreating the whole thing so he is familiar notary a lot


of people. Many more so than just people who remember the first time


round. The thing I really remember was that the trial was of course


televised. In this country they are not, and it became almost a soap


opera playing out, even though it was actually happening and that


1.100 million people tuned in. That is a huge number and prime-time TV


doesn't get that. Then one that was subsequently a civil case against


him where ended up being asked to pay 33 million in the judgment to


one of the victims' families, that wasn't on television, and the judge


made the controversial decision that it should use artist sketches and


once again back on our screens, and is it real? Actually happening. It


is astonishing. And he was incredibly grateful and said thank


you to the pro Commissioners. Let's go on to Brexit which is once again


across most of the front pages including the Times. Very


interesting story, looking like a briefing from the Treasury saying


Theresa May is ready to offer EU citizens free movement to Britain


for up to two years after Brexit and this is Philip Hammond's plans.


Philip Hammond for some time has been pushing for the transitional


arrangements or we don't suddenly reach a cliff edge at the end of


talks. Key to this story and find this briefing is about free movement


and the Times suggests that previously had Brexit ears and the


Cabinet have been won over. It is interesting the language used, that


now the Chancellor believes he has won them around. It indicates the


briefing comes from the Treasury. He talks about borders being open for


two years after Brexit. The Guardian talks about up to four years of free


movement and later downgrades to three, so irrespective of how long


it ends up being, the fact that Philip Hammond from this perspective


seems to be coming at the vector is the remainders, the soft Brexit. A


sort of struggle with the Cabinet between hard and soft Brexit, is


that right? I think it is quite a positive move. We never expected is


going to be all hard or soft Brexit. Hard and soft at the same time? We


talk about a garden thriving in the new sunshine after Brexit. Some will


flourish, some will die. What we are seeing is a bit of give and take so


we are not going to get a complete end to free movement. Neither are we


going to get it continuing but what we get is a bit of give and take. It


shows the negotiations are starting to take shape. Very poetic analogy.


The Telegraph also going on Brexit but with a different angle, foreign


criminals staying after Brexit. This is based around one of the key


elements discussed today. This was Britain's desire for every EU


national resident in the UK to be granted this settled status, if they


have been here for five years, a criminal record check, and the


concern from the EU that actually that would undermine the rights, it


would be unlawful to have a blanket criminal records check on everybody,


and the angle the Telegraph has taken is that without this check,


how would British authorities and all who was here and therefore


foreign criminals who may have committed crimes overseas could be


permitted to stay, which is one of the big controversial issues in the


Brexit campaign, of Britain be gaining the power to be able to send


people back to wherever they came from. And in the middle of all of


this, Theresa May, we're hearing, going off hiking for three weeks,


going on a three-week walking holiday to Italy and Switzerland


with her husband Philip. It was when she was walking before that she


changed her mind, famously, about having a general election, which


didn't work out too well. The Cabinet will be hoping she doesn't


make any big decisions on the Alps this time because that is what she


did in Snowdonia, calling the election but resulted in losing the


majority. She will be crossing the free border between Italy and


Switzerland with her husband for three weeks. Speculation over who is


minding the shop while she is away. Damian Green is first minute of


state so during the summer last year Boris Johnson had a short term in


charge. I can't see that's been repeated this time somehow. You'd


editor was saying she is a dead woman walking not long ago but she


is still hanging on. How do you rate her chances of prime ministerial


survival at the moment? Not brilliant but every day she clings


on makes it a little bit easier for her. The biggest things in her


favour are Brexit negotiations and the fear of having somebody else


take over that the talks end up falling apart one where another


because somebody new comes in, and the more important one when it comes


to the Conservative Party as there would be huge pressure for the new


leader to holding your election and they are terrified it leads to


Jeremy Corbyn. The daily Mirror has a front-page seeing cops quiz kids


age four and this is an angle on the rising crime story we have been


reporting all day. The matter have focused on on the numbers of people


carrying knives, a big problem in this country, I am sure not that


many aged four, but never the less they have highlighted the declining


age. What I find more alarming is the overall rise in violent crime,


up by 18%, sexual crimes by 40%, and public disorder by 39%. I would


suggest Labour seize upon this if these figures, it before prime


ministers questions yesterday. The cause of the issue of police


numbers. The Conservatives cut police numbers because crime had


been falling. My view personally is that if the signs are that crime is


rising then you have to increase numbers. And of course Labour won't


let the Conservatives forget that the Prime Minister was Home


Secretary had a long period and were substantial changes such as her


shift on the government stance on stop and search which lots of people


have suggested might have contributed to a rise in more young


people carrying knives, emboldened because they are less likely to be


stopped by the police. We have also got the Guardian was an interesting


story about the Muslim mother launching legal action against her


daughter's school after being told she could not way they face veil


while visiting the premises. The story was around the other week


about face veils. This is quite an interesting one because it is not a


teacher wearing the veil, it is the mother of the pupil, and she has


basically been told, you're not welcome wearing a face veil. I


suppose the school has a right to do it but it seems a little harsh of it


as a mother. We are not secular France, we respect the religious


right to wear what you want and it was a school premises but she is not


in a position of authority. This is Holland Park School. The socialist


Eastern. All eyes, the Guardian very interested in what is going on, so


we will watch how it all plays out. The last front pages the Daily


Express and they are seeing snoring can put people at greater risk of


developing dementia, researchers have discovered. Scientists found


that those who suffer difficulties breathing during their sleep at


higher risk of brain function decline. It seems that snoring is


linked to the brain's inability to believe is while one is sleeping, it


says about a fifth the people have this issue. It is an early warning


system. I guess this sort of scientific discovery gives


scientists and medical professionals more chance of finding ways to


tackle this complaint. It is interesting the number of front


pages you see on Alzheimer's and dementia as obviously the incidence


of them are increasing as the population is getting older. Every


day there is a story about a potential breakthrough. Yesterday we


had stories about how you should exercise your brain more, do Spanish


crossword puzzles, so it is something people are interested more


in as they see the scale. And a lot of advice on how to avoid it, more


exercise kind of thing. It is good the to-do has gone as it has on many


things in life and people are less ashamed of it talking mental


illness. And a little bird tells me you have a bit of a snoring issue?


So I am told. I have to lie on my side. Mrs Wooding has communicated


that! The nation needs to know these kinds of things! I am sure it is not


to load. the front pages of the papers online


on the BBC News website. It's all there for you -


seven days a week. And if you miss the programme any


evening you can watch it Good evening. A fairly unsettled


outlook for the next few days with low pressure moving in. We saw some


heavy showers during Thursday and here
