any sunshine towards the south—east warming up. north sea scoast, a sign of things to come, temperatures in single figures for many of us through the week ahead, with that wind coming in off quite a cold sea, of course, at this time of year. plenty of low cloud and mist, that sort of thing. go west for the best of the dry and occasionally bright weather this week. ‘s hello. we'll be taking a look at tomorrow mornings papers in a moment — first the headlines. the un security council is expected to hold an emergency meeting tomorrow to discuss reports of a chemical attack in syria. in the rebel—held town of douma. medical sources say dozens of people died in the rebel—held town of douma. donald trump describes president assad as an ‘animal‘ and condemns syria's allies. the syrian government denies responsibility. ministers deny any link between falling police numbers and the rise in violence in london — labour accuse them of having their heads in the sand. hungary's right—wing prime minister viktor orban is on course to be re—elected
for a third term — initial results suggest his party has won about half the votes. in the country's general election. hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are michael booker he's the deputy editor of the daily express and broadcaster and lynn faulds wood. and campaigner lynn faulds wood. many of tomorrow's front pages are already in, and syria makes many of the headlines. the metro focuses on donald's trump warning to president assad and his allies that they will pay the price for what the paper calls an outrage. the ft picks up the same theme, highlighting trump's tweet calling assad an animal. the daily express have chosen to put a distressing picture on the front
page, to highlight the horror of the alleged chemical attack. the daily telegraph highlights trump's claims that vladimir putin was partly "responsible". the guardian claims it has a leaked home office document which alleges government cuts to the police "may have encouraged" violent offenders. the times has the same picture as the guardian illustrating the syria attack story — it also has story claiming the nhs is wasting £40 million a year on a useless injection for back pain. syria dominating the front pages there, but let's have a closer look behind the headlines. and various interpretations of that story. starting with the daily express and a photograph of a baby receiving oxygen after the attack in douma. sick, most of them are going to die, the targeting of anything is known to have a life. even at this point in this conflict which seems
to be edging towards some sort of end, this attack has quite understandably caused outrage. the horrors continue. upsetting picture but we don't put that on the front page lightly. we do it because what is going on over there, the syrians deny it. we have been here before last year when something happened in 2013. the world is outraged every time this happens. we allow them to do it again. then nothing happens. we have the un, will they speak about it tomorrow, is it a big talking shop? donald trump says it is sick. we have a quote from the medics on the ground having to do with this horrific stuff. again, a lot of it is just words. it is not the easiest thing to solve, i know. sure. donald trump is using words
like sick, inflammatory language. animal assad he says in his tweets. he blames vladimir putin, no longer his prime. assad will pay for this outrage. syria and russia are denying the chemical attack even took place. and iran. they are saying nothing to do with us. denying it? small children can't pretend to foam at the mouth. it happened or it didn't. they are looking scientifically at it and it think it wasn'tjust looking scientifically at it and it think it wasn't just chlorine gas which can smell, they think it was sarin gas, which is worse. we have been here, 2013, 1400 dead in eastern ghouta. another horrible chemical gas. we saw the pictures in the front covers, the little boy who
was the front covers, the little boy who wa s cove re d the front covers, the little boy who was covered in blood on every front page and dust. and allen, found on the beach, the three—year—old. picked up on a beach. every other month, horrible pictures, still nothing happens. you get the impression with donald trump, he makes political capital. grandstanding. last year when he ordered the missile strikes on the areas which had been responsible for the chemical attack, it did well for him, played well with his base. the chemical attack, it did well for him, played well with his basem that fair on him? he has stood up to north korea and north korea has said, let's talk. he certainly as you said it plays well with his support base but the white house is 110w support base but the white house is now saying they are not ruling out a missile strike. they did do a missile strike. they did do a missile strike. they did do a missile strike. given the fact the
un security council could be scuppered by a veto from russia as it often has been, he is trying to do something with france, the united kingdom and maybe at least it is taking a stand which is what you are saying needs to happen. he does. there is also a comment from republicans saying, he said this but he needs to back it up with action. last time commonly missiles. it is get rid of assad? stop chemical attacks? note. it has been going on for years. coming to the end of assad's rain dart he said, we will be coming out of syria, like, soon. because they were beating islamic state. —— they were beating ies. -- they were beating ies. from 194 luton. because russia has been an ally of syria ovulatory, inevitably trump's current animists
difficulties with russia and the attack year, the kremlin inevitably would be brought into this. certainly. not so long ago mr vladimir putin was a great guy and they were pals, trump was pals with them. now he says he blames vladimir putin for what has happened yesterday with these poor children. the trouble with trump is that you cannot really tell what you will say next. he appears to be saying that we are going to really take it seriously now. last week, the talk is we are coming out of syria, i'iow. . . is we are coming out of syria, now... he wants action. claiming political capital, he has criticised barack 0bama for his failure to put the red line. referring back to that in 2013. he likes to do that. now,
he must do hisjob. the red line was crossed. what good is that now? this is the thing on his plate at the moment, what is the bond of criticising barack moment, what is the bond of criticising ba rack 0bama ? moment, what is the bond of criticising barack 0bama? if you are going to do something, get a consensus and do it. he is all talk u nless consensus and do it. he is all talk unless he does something. vladimir putin, the russians are prepared to go to another level which we do not go to another level which we do not go to. if we stand up to them, they will do something else. if they are responsible if it looks like the poisoning of someone on british soil, they will go to any length. staying with the daily telegraph. the violent crime story. rising crack cocaine driving up violent crime, once amber rudd. —— warns. the violence, serious violent strategy, partly because of the murder rate going up in london. terrible. i
murder rate going up in london. terrible. lam murder rate going up in london. terrible. i am scottish and i hope they have been speaking to the scots because the scots had a terrible problem, the worst in the civilised world. glasgow the murder capital of europe. not a single knifing there, yes, there are still beatings, it is not a tranquil place, but they have stopped the knifing. they did not say to the police, here is money in a crackdown. it is by bringing everybody in, social services, health. they think it is a health problem. a public health issue. they matched the gangs. happily ever mapped the gangs? trying to stop people joining mapped the gangs? trying to stop peoplejoining gangs mapped the gangs? trying to stop people joining gangs in mapped the gangs? trying to stop peoplejoining gangs in the mapped the gangs? trying to stop people joining gangs in the future? hopefully that will have an effect. stop and search, restricting access to nice and acid. extra 300 officers on the streets this weekend as well.
i had not seen an awful lot in london to be honest. extra 300, that is not new officers, that is 1's working during the week and doing more overtime. they are trying to say these officers are out there but it is an overstretched group. try to give a greater visibility on the streets. it isn't working. the americans say, go into the areas where you know the most crime is. we know children are vulnerable. not swamp the place. i am know children are vulnerable. not swamp the place. lam neighbourhood watch for my area. i have not seen police. what we do see is people pinching mopeds numberplates. so... the six mopeds runners who went into the jewellers. the guardian has a different take, police cats likely contributed to rising violence according to a leaked home office paper. —— police caps.
—— police first fight. -- police first fight. in scotland, a different approach. in america, they have in new york done stop and frisk, not search. great success in new york with cutting crime. giving police extra money so they can crack down hard, it has not worked before. i think we read we had wasted 1.6 billion cracking down before. much better putting the money into mental health. if you see young lads and goesin health. if you see young lads and goes in the gangs, if they say the police, less likely to commit a crime in the vicinity. i spoke to a scotla nd crime in the vicinity. i spoke to a scotland yard detective who said there is no one on the ground. a
couple of them said they were in with some pretty hard gangs but they knew everyone, what was going on and had information. if you have more police officers on the street... the gangs still existed. yes, but not the upsurge in violent crime on the streets as we do now. the guardian, high turnout in hungary. since this paper was printed, it looks like red is going to win. not by the two thirds majority his party would need to change the constitution, it has just occurred, the election victory, it is out of date but talking about hungary? . about changing the constitution when he came in the first time so it is easier for him. he is quite right wing, accused of being racist. he has also put up walls because hungary has... i have
been for conferences. hungary has relatively few people not hungarian living there. they have put up walls of wire to stop people coming into the country. hugely controversial to eu partners. it goes to show what a lot of people in that country are scared of, anti—migrant fuming, the campaign was based on, and he has w011. campaign was based on, and he has won. they will win in other countries with that. you feel as if populism is going down a little bit in europe but huge living in some parts. the financialtimes. scientists who developed novichok signed with the uk. —— sided with the uk. developing nerve agents. one of which was used to poison the
script i'll —— yulia skripal and her father. he is saying he has sided with britain. is impossible to say whether it is actually come from. it is called novichok, used on a russian spy, developed and russia. he says, i am not columbo but there is huge clue. he says he is probably ona is huge clue. he says he is probably on a list... novichok is only held and made by russians. but you cannot trace the source of the exact batch like a good before with the
