We'll be taking a look at tomorrow morning's papers in a moment.

:00:08.:00:13.

Great Ormond Street Hospital contacts the police after staff

:00:14.:00:22.

received death threats and online abuse in relation to

:00:23.:00:25.

As Donald Trump commissions a new warship, his family

The president tweeted a reminder that he has

:00:34.:00:37.

Boots has said it is "truly sorry" for its response

:00:38.:00:43.

to calls to cut the cost of one its morning after pills.

:00:44.:00:46.

The company faced criticism after saying it wanted to avoid

:00:47.:00:50.

"incentivising inappropriate use" of the pills.

:00:51.:00:55.

Airline pilots have welcomed Government plans to introduce

:00:56.:00:58.

a registration system for privately-owned drones.

:00:59.:01:01.

It follows growing concern about the risk they pose to aircraft.

:01:02.:01:18.

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

:01:19.:01:21.

With me are Rosamund Urwin, columnist with the London Evening

:01:22.:01:25.

Standard and Martin Lipton, head of sport at the Sun.

:01:26.:01:29.

We start with The Observer which leads with claims

:01:30.:01:36.

that the Brexit Secretary, David Davis, is the preferred choice

:01:37.:01:39.

among Tory members to replace Prime Minister Theresa.

:01:40.:01:43.

The Sunday Express features a family photograph of Prince Harry

:01:44.:01:47.

and his mother, Diana the Princess of Wales, with the headline

:01:48.:01:52.

The Telegraph has the same story, along with reports that more than 40

:01:53.:02:00.

female BBC presenters have signed an open letter to the

:02:01.:02:02.

Director-General Lord Hall demanding equal pay.

:02:03.:02:06.

The Sunday Times says men and women will be able to change their gender

:02:07.:02:10.

legally without a doctor's diagnosis under Government plans.

:02:11.:02:15.

The paper says the proposals will transform British society.

:02:16.:02:17.

While the Star leads with Princes Harry and William's

:02:18.:02:19.

last conversation with their mum before she died.

:02:20.:02:21.

The royal story also dominates the front of the Mail on Sunday.

:02:22.:02:26.

Rosamond, take us to the front of the Sunday Times, the story about

:02:27.:02:41.

the right to choose your own sex. Justin Greening, the Minister 4-wood

:02:42.:02:49.

Min has called this move the third rate step forward for equality after

:02:50.:02:56.

equality for women, the quality for same-sex marriage and now face means

:02:57.:03:02.

people will be able, men will be able to identify themselves as women

:03:03.:03:08.

and men in as women and have their birth certificates record -- altered

:03:09.:03:13.

to record their new gender. This will go in the autumn for

:03:14.:03:19.

consultation, it is called the gender recognition Bill, and it will

:03:20.:03:22.

also include proposals to scrap the requirement that people need formal

:03:23.:03:28.

medical diagnosis of gender dysphoria. Before applying to

:03:29.:03:35.

change. And obviously what the story is covering of the fact that is

:03:36.:03:40.

likely to prove every controversial. A lot of potential legal cases. The

:03:41.:03:47.

suggestion that what we will end up with is the argument over who should

:03:48.:03:54.

be in various single sex wards, it seems ever ongoing toilet issue. It

:03:55.:04:02.

is interesting. Appears on the back of the already two main party

:04:03.:04:08.

leaders, one assumes it would difficult for the Labour Party to

:04:09.:04:16.

oppose these proposals, likewise Philip Thames, I'm interested in

:04:17.:04:19.

what the Democratic Unionists would have to say about it, given they are

:04:20.:04:25.

part of the government now. I can't imagine them supporting this. Some

:04:26.:04:29.

people will think this is about time and others will be up in total arms

:04:30.:04:36.

and disgust and how dare they. It really will go back to your view on

:04:37.:04:44.

what is gender, I guess, is it fluid, is it set? I'm not sure it is

:04:45.:04:51.

just about that. You are weighing up people's rights and the question for

:04:52.:04:54.

women's groups, some feminist groups, they would say the problem

:04:55.:04:59.

here is there are spaces where women need to feel safe and what you do

:05:00.:05:04.

not want is people taking advantage of this. We don't know that people

:05:05.:05:09.

will take advantage of this but there is clearly worried that

:05:10.:05:12.

somebody will and their concerns are expressed here. They want access to

:05:13.:05:17.

women's refuges, hospital words, rape crisis centres and the normal

:05:18.:05:22.

one people think about more regularly and that does create an

:05:23.:05:27.

obvious thing where you are struggling to weigh up to different

:05:28.:05:34.

groups' rights. If you go down the path of corrective surgery, it seems

:05:35.:05:39.

a pretty committed way of doing it. But you are only expected to make a

:05:40.:05:45.

statutory declaration that you intend to live in the acquired

:05:46.:05:51.

gender. Let's live on to other matters. The Sunday Telegraph, that

:05:52.:05:56.

headliners revolt of the BBC women. It is fair to say that one to women

:05:57.:06:02.

who work at BBC aren't terribly happy the moment. And a lot of the

:06:03.:06:08.

ones who everyone knows have signed this letter to Tony Hall, the names

:06:09.:06:15.

include Claire balding, Sarah Montague, Michelle Hussain, Victoria

:06:16.:06:20.

Derbyshire, Angelo Britain, Kirsty Wark, I am talking about significant

:06:21.:06:26.

figures. Understandably, the warning to Tony Hall is, do something now.

:06:27.:06:32.

So this out. It is unreasonable, unacceptably and frankly

:06:33.:06:37.

anachronistic for there to be this divide. If Wimbledon men's and

:06:38.:06:45.

women's singles finals get paid the same, why can't people at the BBC?

:06:46.:06:49.

It is not that difficult concept. It is the question of equivalence. The

:06:50.:06:54.

argument is these people aren't doing the same job exactly but you

:06:55.:07:00.

look at those numbers and there is quite a lot of reason to be very

:07:01.:07:05.

angry. There is a really important line in this story as well. They are

:07:06.:07:11.

actually going to insist, these women want to insist that thousands

:07:12.:07:14.

of rank and file staff, producers, engineers, support workers will also

:07:15.:07:21.

have a Pay Review Body to weave only gone above and 50 K at what is not

:07:22.:07:30.

known is what happens below. -- 150 K. The BBC will have to do that by

:07:31.:07:39.

next April anyway along with a whole lot of other people and we are going

:07:40.:07:45.

to find out of bigger gender gap that the BBC. We have made

:07:46.:07:51.

significant changes, say the BBC, over the last three years, the need

:07:52.:07:57.

to do more, Tony Hall has pledged the BBC World News further, faster,

:07:58.:08:03.

they talk about the pay league hired by 10% where the national average is

:08:04.:08:10.

eight teen percent. We are committed to changing that by 2020, something

:08:11.:08:14.

no other organisation is committing to do but this cannot be done

:08:15.:08:21.

overnight. Police there was a statement with a timeline, I don't

:08:22.:08:26.

think we will get that from a lot of other organisations. And certainly

:08:27.:08:29.

the people in this letter are not prepared to wait until 2020.

:08:30.:08:35.

I can understand their position. If they should pay to Poland. Theresa

:08:36.:08:46.

May Emma Tory faithful. They want her out by Christmas as the

:08:47.:08:49.

paragraph story here. The problem being that they are saying her

:08:50.:08:52.

leadership instability is undermining Brexit and that she

:08:53.:08:56.

can't possibly recover from the disastrous election of last June.

:08:57.:09:01.

They are talking about leading voices among Tory activists. That is

:09:02.:09:13.

a bit paid. You would imagine... You've got the members saying,

:09:14.:09:16.

actually, they don't want to get rid of her. Yes, amongst local party

:09:17.:09:24.

chairman, you would imagine. Certain Cabinet ministers. Calling for her

:09:25.:09:32.

to go within months. The story on the front the Observer, the headline

:09:33.:09:39.

is Tory members turned to David Davis. Whatever you think of him, it

:09:40.:09:46.

makes sense, it is a clean Brexiteer, he is involved in the

:09:47.:09:50.

negotiations but when you look at the text of it, it is one in five,

:09:51.:09:58.

so only 20%, which is a significant but minority. Most of the members in

:09:59.:10:05.

the poll don't really know what they want. It is not very far ahead of

:10:06.:10:11.

the figure for Boris Johnson which is 17%. The biggest choice was none

:10:12.:10:17.

of the above. Party members are reluctant for Theresa May to stand

:10:18.:10:24.

now, and given the timetable for a change of leadership, there doesn't

:10:25.:10:28.

seem to be consistency even in the response. We've got conference in

:10:29.:10:35.

October. So, you know, she has that nightmare. She's got three weeks off

:10:36.:10:43.

now, apparently. Meanwhile, Jeremy Corbyn, this is to do with his

:10:44.:10:50.

secret WACA. Now we can blown -- blame Tony Blair for Corbyn. What

:10:51.:10:57.

this story says is that the local party in Corbyn's constituency of

:10:58.:11:02.

Islington North, they went to Tony Blair and said, look, he keeps

:11:03.:11:08.

voting against you, should we think about getting rid of him, can we try

:11:09.:11:14.

to deselect him? And he said, no, the Labour Party is abroad church.

:11:15.:11:18.

This week is coming out as we're hearing speculation about Tom Watson

:11:19.:11:24.

and whether there will be a move on him. Right of centre. The Ides dear

:11:25.:11:33.

to replace Tom Watson with Emily Thornberry who is a much closer ally

:11:34.:11:39.

and she is right next door. This is interesting timing, I think, and I

:11:40.:11:43.

think it might be deliberate, it is to say that don't forget the Labour

:11:44.:11:48.

Party has in the past tolerated a wide for a ride to your views. Only

:11:49.:11:54.

this week, Tony Blair said he could imagine Jeremy Corbyn becoming Prime

:11:55.:11:58.

Minister witchy BBC thought was impossible. A lot of people in the

:11:59.:12:05.

Labour Party think only one person worse than any conservative is in

:12:06.:12:09.

fact Tony Blair and here's the line in what for everything that is

:12:10.:12:15.

disgruntled about the Labour Party, ten years after he has stepped down.

:12:16.:12:20.

The fact that people still talk about Blairites and he hasn't been

:12:21.:12:24.

the leader for so long, that is white towelling. And this is Hilary

:12:25.:12:29.

Armstrong who has been talking to the Westminster power on Radio 4. It

:12:30.:12:35.

does appear to be, as was and said, conservative pushback from the other

:12:36.:12:40.

wing of the party. Where are we going, will it do us any favours? In

:12:41.:12:49.

our final minute, I will come to you first, Martin, there is a man in

:12:50.:12:55.

yellow on the front here for top there was a day left in the two de

:12:56.:13:01.

force, a four hour race tomorrow, and he is only one minute in front,

:13:02.:13:06.

and he has one because they will not attack him. There is consensus that

:13:07.:13:12.

you do not attack the leader on the final day. He will win it for the

:13:13.:13:17.

fourth time, it is a fantastic achievement. He will win the tour de

:13:18.:13:23.

force without winning a single stage. In previous years, he has won

:13:24.:13:29.

stages, but this year, he has just needed to be -- he has just been

:13:30.:13:35.

where he needs to be at each stage of the raised full top it is

:13:36.:13:41.

incredible, watching them go up those incredible peaks at incredible

:13:42.:13:45.

speeds, it is an astonishing feat of human endurance. Thank you both.

:13:46.:13:52.

That is it for the papers this hour. Thank you to Rosamond and Martin,

:13:53.:13:58.

they will both be back at 11:30pm. Coming up next, it is the film

:13:59.:14:05.

review. -- Film Review.
