,in las are dominated by the attack in las vegas, including the metro. 58 people killed and over 500 wounded. the sun features a full page photograph of young revellers attending the country music concert fleeing for their lives against the headline — simply run. the i calls it america's worst ever mass shooting. while the telegraph headlines president trump's statement that the attack was ‘an act of pure evil‘ — but claims he has side—stepped calls for tighter gun laws. a sentiment that also features on the front page of the express, along with claims a new survey has found that millions of pensioners are against having to sell their home to pay for social care bills. the ft also leads with the las vegas attack and with the repatriation of over 100,000 british holiday—makers stranded abroad after the collapse of monarch airlines. the mirror claims the operation is the biggest repatriation since the dunkirk evacuation in 1940. the dunkirk evacuation *)40
ofthe the dunkirk evacuation *)40 of the i, striking image, front of the i, striking image, america's worst ever shooting. yes and we are trying to make sense of it as much as anyone else because there are so many questions left unanswered, perhaps most potently how this could have happened. the us and countries like the uk have been bracing for quite some time for atrocious acts of terrorism, but this sort of smell is different, it looks different, we are trying to make sense of who this guy was. stephen paddock was 64, that's what we know, it seems he was a retired accountant, he liked gambling, he had his hand in the property market somehow. apart from that we don't know anything about him and what might have motivated him to commit this atrocious crime. to look at him and as he reflected going through the front pages, the daily mail reflected on him being mr normal, he
was an average joe. reflected on him being mr normal, he was an average joe. as things have gone on, we saw the sense of shock from his brother earlier, eric, and i've never seen anyone look so shocked during a news story being interviewed. when people say, well, it is always a bit corny when people say it, he was the nicest guy, but this guy had no idea where this had come from. no warning signs. looking at the front of your paper, michael, iam at the front of your paper, michael, i am struck, you have the pictures of the victim but also the face of the killer. there is a bit of a debate going on injournalistic circles about whether or not we give too much attention to the assailants after incidents like this. what sort of calculations do you make at a paper about how to compose a front picture like that? we try and get the message across. we try and be as sensitive as we possibly can. considering the choices of the pictures as well, you make sure, we try not to have anything to graphic, or anything that would damage the
memory of anyone involved in it or the feelings of anyone involved in it. we made the decision we had to get the picture of the killer on there as well. people need to see that and see how normal he looked. that is the story. the story is he was this normal guy and looks like any normal guy you would see. hundreds of pictures are available on something like this. hundreds of horrible pictures have come out early this morning. which obviously will not make any national newspaper. you've got to go as far as you can to show the extent of what people went through. the telegraph has this image of people kind of running away, some being carried away. the terrible choice but people make in an instant, somebody says get down, they get down, they don't realise the shooter is above them and literally they are sitting ducks. on this picture what strikes me is it is not the picture that will be new to us. this is something that we have seen plastered across the fronts of
newspapers for the last year too often. i think that is also one of the reasons why we are likely to rebound from this tragedy quite quickly as well. we were saying just before the show, it seems an atrocious event, not of this scale and calibre, but something like this happens every week almost. the thing about the picture on the front of the telegraph as well, trump reflected it as well, people came together, they are all helping each other. he said if there is one thing that comes out of this it is what americans do and it was reflected in some papers and they have used his words, an act of pure evil. it was quite a decent speech from trump. he stepped to the autocue. he has not been tweeting all day, he has shown a bit of dignity. people say he doesn't want to say too much because he is being supported quite extensively by the national rifle association. he said during the campaign, don't look to me for a new gun laws. staying with the
telegraph, moving onto matters domestic. this is intriguing, isn't it? fascinating because david davis, the brexit secretary, we thought would take us all the way through to the end of brexit, almost seems to be enjoying himself when he has been talking about it previously. but he seems to be getting a bit tired of it and in this he has told friends, according to the daily telegraph, the chief negotiator for the eu, michel barnier, he needs this more thanl michel barnier, he needs this more than i do. he says he seems to be enjoying it, davis, you get the impression that he seems to be, for someone impression that he seems to be, for someone who has wanted to be the prime minister before, he likes the big jobs and the limelight, i don't think he particularly likes what he is having to do and they are saying he is going to go in 2019 when we leave the eu, it remains to be seen whether we are leaving, that is the transition start command of leave it to borisjohnson, with people saying that means boris johnson to borisjohnson, with people saying that means borisjohnson will think ifi that means borisjohnson will think iflam that means borisjohnson will think if i am handling the transition period i may as well become prime minister as well. this is
fascinating. this is interesting because if we go on to the times, tomorrow is a big day at the tory conference, davis, johnson and amber rudd making speeches, potential leaders. that is showbiz, those three. politics is showbiz for... amber rudd hires tory poster amid talk of... she is well liked by liberal conservatives. book has been written about the election period saying after the election period didn't go as well as she hoped, based for amber rudd who only held on by her fingertips. david cameron, john major and george osborne rallied around thinking she is the way to go but she with her majority in hastings and right, she has brought in lynton crosby, the tough aussie who is good at the sort of thing, we are told, to try and help rebuild this campaign in the constituency. you cannot help but
think, if she let him do that, may as well make him make the prime minister as well. you don't know. it seems as though even that the tories have been told let's come together they are all still removing. with they are all still removing. with the davis story and amber rudd story we have to remember there is an awful lot of flux and so many moving parts in the tory party at the moment and with brexit. we have no clue what brexit will look like yet. as you said, 2019 is the deadline but what does that mean? there are lots of moving parts. the worrying thing is the tory party scene to be fighting like cats in a sack all the time. with all the labour party was bad. last week they had a lovely week in comparison! talking of brexit, do you see any connection between brexit and the front of the ft. between brexit and the front of the ft, the collapse of monarch?m between brexit and the front of the ft, the collapse of monarch? if we look at it from a sector perspective monarch is not the only ailing airline within the low—cost industry. dft points out that
alitalia have also run into extreme trouble. —— the ft. brexit has battered the pound, we are still down 10% against the dollar which has done nothing for confidence. confidence is reflected very much in leisure industries like travel. and fuel costs and everything else that can be affected if the pound is weaker. the price of oil, exactly. it is not a far stretch but there we re it is not a far stretch but there were clearly internal problems monarch was facing, they had exposure to destinations like egypt, turkey and tunisia, and then the price war in the mediterranean, tourists who were pivoting away from places like egypt and tunisia and turkey, going to be mediterranean, to spain, portugal instead, and of course, monarch is a relative minnow compared to people like easyjet and ryanair. i was surprised it was the country's fifth largest airline. the
first aeroplane i went on on a package holiday. where did you go? the costa del sol. the package holiday has been going away, people are buying flights and sorting out there on holiday. that has hit them as well. the ft has said 1800 people will lose theirjobs but only further into the story. that was confirmed by the liquidators today. focusing on the passengers but in the end they are coming back. most of them are protected, thankfully, but 1800 people have lost their jobs. monarch are saying they will try and help find newjobs. but businesses have said that before. my question is this may help ryanair after this staff shortages. they may suddenly find they have enough pilots! talking about people losing their jobs, pilots! talking about people losing theirjobs, although pilots! talking about people losing their jobs, although in pilots! talking about people losing theirjobs, although in the gig economy, people, have they actually gotjobs? economy, people, have they actually got jobs? uber in economy, people, have they actually gotjobs? uber in the uk. transport for london. the end of september
they came out and said they would not renew uber‘s license in london, massive blow for uber, one of the most important markets for stubbornness is developing is uber‘s uk head, bed of northern europe, is stepping down from her role —— the head of northern europe. looks like this was something she was considering for a while and this was an opportune moment. they always find good jobs. the bosses have a merry—go—round of these companies and go from one to the other to the other and leave behind the little guys and girls having to drive the camps, what happens to them? do you get the whiff that the six is in for this one and it will be looking good for sadiq khan, he looks like a tough guy, sadik dummer kubo will make all of these changes. do you think they will kiss and make up? —— uber will make all of these changes. that will be the photo opportunity
on the front of the day after tomorrow's front pages. thank you for rattling through the papers. that's it from us. you can see the front pages of the papers online on the bbc website seven days a week, bbc.co.uk/ papers. if you have missed the show you can watch it later on the iplayer. thanks to my guests. i will be back at 11pm. hello. today brought a cool and blustery and decidedly autumnal feel across many parts of the country. but autumn did show a couple of its different faces. some places saw spells of sunshine, that was the scene in bamburgh, but elsewhere the scottish highlands saw strong winds, rough seas and some cloud and some showers at times, all because of this area of low pressure, which is beginning to push away to the north—east. but notice still some tightly squeezed isobars across northern scotland.
we could still season very strong winds, wind gusts of up to 60 mph or more for a time during tonight. some showers continuing to feed into some north—western areas, further south and east it turns largely dry with some clear spells and it will be fairly chilly as well. london, cardiff, plymouth down to 9 degrees, in the countryside it could be a little bit chillier than that. tomorrow then will be a brighter day, there will be a good deal of sunshine around, some patchy cloud here and there, particularly into the afternoon. some showers across scotland, northern ireland, north—west england, but they will be quite well scattered and as we go through the day the winds across the far north of scotland will ease down. it will still be breezy here but not as windy as it was on monday. eastern scotland largely dry, some showers for western scotland, the odd shower perhaps for northern ireland but a lot of fine weather here, and then across england and wales it's a story of patchy cloud, some spells of sunshine through tomorrow afternoon and temperatures around 15 or 16 degrees at best. as we go on through tuesday night into wednesday, it will turn quite chilly so quite a cool start on wednesday, particularly in the south.
southern areas, though, should stay fine during the day, although any sunshine will turn quite hazy. more cloud will bring outbreaks of rain through northern ireland, scotland, parts of northern england. 12 degrees in glasgow and aberdeen. perhaps up to 16 across parts of the south—east. some uncertainty in our forecast as we go through wednesday night because on this wave in this weather front there is the potential that we could develop quite a deep and quite a tight area of low pressure and that could bring some very strong winds eastwards but there is a lot of uncertainty about that. that rain and the wind should clear eastwards during thursday to leave a lot of fine weather, some spells of sunshine, a chilly night on thursday night, and then another mainly fine day on friday. so, to sum up for the rest of the week it will be generally cool by day and by night. potentially wet and windy for the middle of the week but there will be some sunshine as well. this is bbc news. the headlines at 11:00pm: at least 58 people killed and more than 500
injured, after a gunman opens fire on a crowd attending a music festival in las vegas. concert—goers scrambled for cover, rushing for exits and helping others to escape, as they realised the full horror of what was happening. police have identified the gunman as a 64—year—old local man, who killed himself before police found him. at the white house, a silent tribute led by president trump,
