winter olympic in south korea and i will check out some of our biggest medal prospects. hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. about 25 minutes we are poised and ready to bring you up—to—date with the front pages. the times say that paedophiles is using youtube as a shop window. shoplifting spikes after police are not investigating. three brexit also fronts the eye

following an immense by the conservative mayor of the west midlands, cautioning against a hard brexit. the case of laura plummer, the british woman jailed brexit. the case of laura plummer, the british womanjailed in egypt is on the mirror. the financial times says that retail is disappointing with a drop in footfall for traditional boxing day sales. the sun leads with british troops being asked to use gender neutral words. and in the express says a stroll in the garden could help to fight dementia. thank you for being with us dementia. thank you for being with us to beginning with the time and a distressing story about the use, potentially, of the internet for the abuse of children. it is a horrible story but it is no real secret that abused children have appeared on youtube. the brazen part about this, the new part, is that now paedophiles are emblazoned in the videos with any mail addresses. people can get in touch with them. —— e—mail addresses. a legal expert

is questioning whether or not this would be illegal. in a sense, you are putting children for word and there is always a danger of what might happen after that. it is an opinion but any right minded person will think that this needs to be closed down and closed down quickly. if in any way google will not do it themselves it needs to be done for them. yes. and to be fair it does say that most channels were shut down but only after the newspaper contacted youtube. it is about algorithms. it is about evil people but the mass that creates search engines that puts these things are. lam afraid engines that puts these things are. i am afraid it will only be people removing their business if they don't want to be associated and youtube has already had 250 big advertisers leaving this year. as
11:34 pm
you say, the companies say this is not a doing an and someone says there has to be a way of stopping this and somebody has to do something. it becomes a way of minimising some of the online traffic. moving on to the telegraph. this one is curious. please been blamed for shoplifting. in a sense. police sparked a shoplifting boom. what has happened is that since 2014, police forces who have to use their limited resources increasingly judiciously, have agreed not to investigate shop lifting cases if
11:35 pm
the value of the goods is under £200. the new angle on this is that retail leaders have been meeting with the home office ministers because they are getting concerned. they say that gangs of corrupt thieves who know the law and now that they are unlikely to get collared if it is under 200 quid. they are going around and one of them is quoted as saying they used stores and supermarkets as a piggy bank to fund drug and alcohol abuse problems or they sell goods that they can then use for other nefarious activities. it is an awful lot of money. £6 billion a year. that is an awful lot of 199.99... and it always goes on to prices for everybody. talking of prices and putting a value on something difficult to price, brexit rears its head. how could we get through
11:36 pm
christmas without mentioning brexit? next year we will be discussing it almost hourly. philip hammond is in some trouble. david davis was not releasing documents and now labour mps are saying that philip hammond should release his documents which give an idea about the effect of brexit on the british economy depending on different scenarios. he also made the mistake of telling the select committee he had them. ministers should now agreed to never talk about any papers even what happened to david davis. is meant to have them in the labour mps want them, which is why bright. we have one heck of a year ahead. it has taken us all of 2017 to get to first base. now we have a long way to go and everything should be in place by october if we are to have a deal. and everything should be in place by october if we are to have a dealm would be nice if there was not a
11:37 pm
running commentary on nothing happening. to be honest, by the time i got to christmas eve i thought that this was like... all they needed was cliff richard to come out and sing congratulations. it was like the rain washing our wimbledon because nothing is happening. much of this is political manoeuvring. it isa of this is political manoeuvring. it is a reasonable story, it is generally quite right that the taxpayer funded research should be made available. they should be running commentary on the basis that it is the biggest constitutional change that we have had. it is getting so complicated that the more you actually explain it as we go along... people might understand it along... people might understand it a bit better. there are too many invested interests. the bbc is the only organ that explains it properly. you just peddle the labour line. now, i am not. i mean, your paper. ido line. now, i am not. i mean, your paper. i do try to explain to
11:38 pm
readers what is happening there. paper. i do try to explain to readers what is happening therem explains the basics of wrecks that and there is always something happening. that is the problem. keeps continuing. the front page of the mirror has the front —— case of laura. they take the line that she is an innocent person in an appalling conditions and needs to be released. as we have heard throughout the day with interviews with her sister and her mother, she is an ordinary girl from hull. she loves to eat it and has been going there for quite awhile. her partner is and lives in egypt but she now finds herself sentenced to three years in prison for arriving in the country with 300 tramadol tablets. it isa country with 300 tramadol tablets. it is a painkilling drug and there are questions, i would have thought, that if it is not for her, she would not have had a prescription, then, maybe the egyptian authorities were
11:39 pm
not as heavy— handed maybe the egyptian authorities were not as heavy—handed as it may maybe the egyptian authorities were not as heavy— handed as it may have seemed. is difficult because when these stories was first reported backin these stories was first reported back in october, people in egypt's we re back in october, people in egypt's were saying that they have a problem with use of drugs of this kind. were saying that they have a problem with use of drugs of this kindm is the most seriously abused drug in egypt so they are on lookout for a. the various points made are absolutely right. the important thing for everybody to make sure if you take drugs abroad that the country you go to, that those drugs are illegal. or if not, take a prescription which you. even her family have said that if it is anything it is naivete rather than criminal intent. one would hope, judging from what they said... perhaps there may be some clemency in the new year spirit? moving on to the financial times. vladimir putin, retail but let's talk about the third story down. spymaster..
11:40 pm
listening post in cheltenham is desperate to recruit new offices tomb man it and having trouble. they are having trouble with the vetting process. it take so long to get somebody. everybody needs to go through a high—level vetting. it is a long and involved process. and i am being asked questions that i have forgotten answers to. the trouble is that people are getting fed up. the applicants are being set up with it. and now they are going off for lucrative jobs in banks... read paid and without protracted enquiries? what you need to do is to vet people. —— are better paid and without ongoing enquiries. here is
11:41 pm
one thing that they may be wanting to find out about. the former fighters for the group that calls itself islamic state who are on the run in turkey. this story, worth noting that it was written by michael evans and anthony loyd who isa-- michael evans and anthony loyd who is a —— has michael evans and anthony loyd who isa —— hasa michael evans and anthony loyd who is a —— has a fantastically good track record and he is writing from syria. these british fighters have joined isis, they are hiding in turkey and prompting fears from western intelligence agencies of an increased risk of terrorist attacks in europe. this research is being carried out in the area by somebody who dealing in western intelligence agencies. what is interesting is that the work that is going on between american intelligence services, and the mi6, they are
11:42 pm
working together. only three of the 40 attacks in europe since 2015 involved terrorist fighters returning, these incidents caused over half the fatalities. the idea that they come back with the skill, ifi that they come back with the skill, if i could use that word, and will harden from the frontline. if i could use that word, and will harden from the frontlinelj if i could use that word, and will harden from the frontline. i think thatis harden from the frontline. i think that is something to exercise caution. ending on a happier note, if we can. good news but before that... every time i switch 0 i end up that... every time i switch 0 i end up waiting longer. passport control, supermarkets... the answer is? don't switch queues. it is a last place a version. apparently if you are the last person in a queue you don't like that so you want to shift to a
11:43 pm
different line. this keeps happening and asa different line. this keeps happening and as a result, if you do too off in you can find yourself waiting significantly longer. there is an a nswer to significantly longer. there is an answer to this, that is to stay in the line and wait till somebody else arrived. the other thing is that one solution the researcher says is that you could start talking to people, struck up a conversation to pass the time. let me end finally, i know joe is itching to tell us about this. who is this man on the front page —— back page of the guardian? that is king harry. the tottenham striker scored a hat—trick today and he had already come with his first goal in that match, had beaten a 22—year—old re cord that match, had beaten a 22—year—old record for the most goals scored in a premiership season within a calendar year. what is fantastic if

11:45 pm
finallyjoined the party. lizzie yarnold is the olympic champion! there were four gb medals during sochi 2014. that could be upgraded to a record haul of five. british athletes are winning more major medals now than at any point in history. there is every chance that pyeongchang 2018 in south korea could be great britain's best ever games. one of britain's best medal prospects is elise christie, competing in three events. since the last games, she has become a world champion.
