is currently playing in the ipl for rajasthan royals... and he took three wickets, including chris gayle's, in their defeat against kings 11 punjab today. it's thought he'll be selected at least for the warm up games, when he'll be given a chance to force his way in to the 15 man squad for this summer's tournament. selection is part of the enterprise so selection is part of the enterprise so that the game and a good job we do, so there is probably not the right word. you know, it would not probably be fair morally, but at the same time, it's the nature of international sport and if someone we re international sport and if someone were to miss out it's incredibly unlucky, but that's how it is. that's all from sportsday. coming up in a moment, the papers.
hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are political correspondent for the daily mirror nicola bartlett and jo tanner, political strategist. many of tomorrow's front pages are already in. and one story, as yesterday dominates. and it's notre—dame. with a stunning picture of the inside of the cathedral after the fire, the i insists notre—dame rises again. the metro reports that fire crews and the chaplain saved crucial artifacts from the blaze. there's another powerful picture of the carnage caused by the fire in the guardian. it says the cathedral "stood defiant". the telegraph has another image of rubble and debris. it also claims that the home secretary, sajid javid, plans to change the law so minor offences need to be reported to employers.
the express leads on a story about how elderly residents are being, as it reports, cruelly turfed out of care homes. the daily mail highlights the number of women who are over 50 years old, and workinghas doubled to five million. and finally, the mirror leads on claims that the duchess of sussex apparently wants an american nanny for the birth of her baby. let's start with we have three front pages at least, with the notre dame rebel inside an extraordinary photographer image. very powerful, i mean most of them centre on the ci’oss mean most of them centre on the cross rising out from the statue of mary holding the dying jesus and the symbolism is obviously they're kind ofa symbolism is obviously they're kind of a plane to see, and symbolism is obviously they're kind ofa plane to see, and i symbolism is obviously they're kind of a plane to see, and i think it
ca ptu res of a plane to see, and i think it captures the spirit that you saw with the french with their outpouring of grief, but also this kind of coming together among notre dame being a symbol for the french, despite it —— being a secular country, religion plays an interesting part in their national life. you can see the cross reflected in all the water, itjust shows the damage inside, standing that those walls are still standing. the p is, would be so moist with the liquid, the liquid, the amount of water that was used is astonishing and actually the timber is, how dangerous it must've been, it's a sort of, i made of the photographers, if i was married to one of them i would have a go after saying what are you doing, and this country you can't get into a
building like that, and be able to look around and get pictures and it was astonishing people are in there because they had not been able to clear the site safe at all. and it's probably still extremely precarious, i know they suggest a lot of the buildings have been saved, some of the structures that will take and mean experts have to go and but still brave work on those who went in there. then at the metro has a striking image, a photograph of a key figure who apparently managed to rescue the crown of thorns. this is fatherjohn, who not only kind of dashed in and climbed up the stairs to rescue some of the precious artifacts, but he also amazingly he entered after the attacks, and did the last rights to the victims. he's
a chaplain at the paris fire brigade, and amazing to have done even one of those things never mind both. yes, i mean again incredible bravery, by all involved as we saw this picture is of the five fighters on the outside going in, i know that's a job but it's still scarily —— audited life skills stop that you expect bravery when there people inside. this chaplain went in to save the crown of thorns for example, you know, clearly recognising the significance of the artifacts that were in there and obviously because it's such a symbol in france that the five fighters we nt in france that the five fighters went above and beyond and very dangerous circumstances. the guardian has a similar image after the fire died down, notre dame stood, quite a lot of written pieces here, just describing the mood and
talking about one person who says it's not just stone talking about one person who says it's notjust stone it's a place of life but i think it'll be another ten yea rs life but i think it'll be another ten years before going inside, someone ten years before going inside, someone who has gone to mass regularly. interestingly, the french presidents tested it would be able to rebuild within five years, which is pretty again. that's what they claim to make when weather this building is properly assessed i'm sure there's expense of people that need to go and look at the work. but you can see the state of the place, so even you can see the state of the place, so even really what they see in terms of what needs to be done, it's a big,| terms of what needs to be done, it's a big, i mean obviously there's lots of money that's been pledged already to help, so i presume they can do things relatively quickly compared to some renovation jobs things relatively quickly compared to some renovationjobs but a a thing to deal with, and itjust looks astonishing. the pledges are extraordinary we heard 100 million and 200 million from big french
billionaires, hilly —— hillary clinton tweeting obviously thoughts and prayers but also people inclined to donate to black churches in america who could also deal with some funding. do you think this whole question will get more attention? not just whole question will get more attention? notjust for notre dame, but elsewhere. i think that's a question that many have asked today, if there is money to save a balloting, however important it is and this is clearly a building that means a lot to people, obviously issues like in america, but in france there's been lots of civil u nrest france there's been lots of civil unrest in recent months, you know the so—called yellow vests, there's so many issues that they have with their own austerity programme and cutting back, so i think this is kind of a natural outpouring in the aftermath but those kind of questions about finding that things
like this, and when there is money and who's paying for these kinds of things, i mean notre dame is technically owned by the french estate despite being at the catholic church, said there is a strange it's it's strangely and who owns and who's responsible, but the money i think will be a bit of a question. macron was praised for pitching his comments added appropriate fashion he was supposed to make a big political speech in light of the protest movement. today he has made another statement to the camera saying he'll address people again calling for a sort of unity. but interestingly, anything like that sort of building where there has beena sort of building where there has been a work going on at those at the question about the renovation and the upkeep of older buildings we have the whole debate about parliament in our own house of parliament, and actually some of the construction you can imagine, it's
quite dangerous there are reports of people are just missing or falling debris and masonry for example, but some of the structures had a lot of timber that if you were to light a match and your own place and go to it would cause so much chaos. but there is a big debate about the p there is a big debate about the upkeep and who can't —— is finding it because they are expensive jobs. almost seamless segue there to the british politics. the independent has got mae has no chance of avoiding eu elections, basically saying theresa may is unable to pass or deal in time to put the uk out of elections, and avoid a likely devastating defeat because she's not going to get any kind of deal, what are you hearing? yeah, i think the independent has quoted to express, i think most people could tell you the same thing that everyone expects
these elections to go i had come out labour are announcing their candidates tomorrow, and i think the liberal democrats as well because it's a sped up process and in order to get it sorted by then, i mean the government keeps saying they can pull up the elections, even the day before. but that's because it's so difficult politically to even be held in the selections at all. is interesting to see the candidates, because they've all had it happen so fast to stop the party that literally had to go out to databases of those who have. those who have passed where their processes will be, that have to go beyond the list because anyone with any sense thinks you know why i'm wasting my time, but parties are not to put pressure on some candidates because they are so on some candidates because they are so desperate to make sure they can fill people. used to work for conservatives, how stretched is that vetting process? well, we have seen
when it goes wrong in the fat in the past, let's face it there are a few that slip through, and that happen on all sides, but that is simply a problem around time and to some extent, you know some that may abolish it before and you wouldn't acce pt abolish it before and you wouldn't accept it, they may have to bed in seats, and all the parties are going to be running the risk of having some embarrassment of some candidates who would have tweeted things, written things, done things in the past, that would normally not necessarily had meant they would have gone through. people are expecting the main parties especially conservatives to suffer, as i've gotten a clear cut because obviously the new independent group that a certain amount of boosting in the polls because you get that attention and publicity, the brexit party launched, said there is another boost but when it settles down, what you think?|j
another boost but when it settles down, what you think? i think the problem that new parties had is one getting those candidates, having enough but also they don't have structures, labour and conservatives have structures that they are used to come planning for that content campaigning canadian activist in place and ways of doing it, and people like creatures that had a bit, i think we are not going to see my worry is we will see a low turnout these are elections no one wa nts to turnout these are elections no one wants to hide. and there are local ones as well so there's gotta be more concerned with the local elections and have bruising they are for both the main political parties, imeanl for both the main political parties, i mean i think the brexit process really neither of the main two parties have covered particularly in glory said there potentially bad backlash anyway, so the tories in particular. and it sees whether they will even fight the elections for the conservatives we will see. back to the telegraph because they had a story coming up from sajid javid, a
potential tory leadership candidate himself. how much are we going to watch from a minister, as part of that whole race? i think we will ultimately, the ones that had any sense will use the brief they've got and they use it wisely because it gives them a platform to be able to do something, and we all know that there is no discipline now around at there is no discipline now around at the cabinet and beyond it to be quite frank because of the brexit process , quite frank because of the brexit process, stuff traditionally, any announcement that came at you would assume they went through a particular process and completely greeted as he is known with number ten, and launched. goodness knows if thatis ten, and launched. goodness knows if that is or is it we don't know because it just that is or is it we don't know because itjust cannot tonight. talking about changes and minor crimes don't have to be disclosed but that is controversial. is interesting because the plaintiff that he is making is that if a young person commits to offences, i can
linger for years and years when they're in adult and they may be minor things, said the advantage of wiping those is that people will not, it won't affect a chance of getting a job in a can contribute to society. there will be lots of people affected by this. but i think it's interesting though, in terms of him making a kind of leadership pitch. it's not something. it's a crackdown, rather than less just wipe away some misdemeanors from juveniles, which the interesting thing will be and what the details of the policy announcement is because the actual story is talking about criminals of minor pension but when you read into it is for talk young people, and you can have some sympathy for people who may be did something ten years ago, that they've grown up and wised pen with a different cloud, and maybe we should give them a bit of a second chance. finally, the ft blooming and
employment figures driven by wetla nd, employment figures driven by wetland, who had helped drive employment, is a surprising or perhaps partly because of austerity for both parents file back to work? i think it's interesting, the ft has gone on a different type and we saw there was a simple —— the mall had a similar story and i think an issue at this is the change to the retirement age for a while which is very controversial with the so—called wasp 11, and i think that the difficulty with employment status because we don't know quite why these things are happening, and it's clear but the wary is lots of land in whom a weight of preference to retire but cannot afford to yet. amber rudd said it's pleasing to see there are a record number of women working and people with secure full—timejobs stop working and people with secure full—time jobs stop yet ——. working and people with secure full-time jobs stop yet --. asked the question, that could be some
potentially negative things, but at the same time the idea that i have always been a working mother, and i think there is an alpha like to be separate they do want to be able to earn their own money and contribute to society, you can see we don't... i think. we can all agreed on that,. but the principle of actually seeing more women working as a good thing. we totally agree. that's it for the papers this hour. nicola and jo will be back at 11.30 but up next — it's the weather. hello, for many parts of the country cloudy day on tuesday, rain and drizzle as well. but over the next two days, there will be more sunshine more widely and for all of
us, is going to be turning warmer and not sunshine as well. some cloud on the scene at the moment it should not really bother us, it brings cold wet weather and to iberia, discard brought rain and drizzle early on peering out now through the night, dampness for western scotland, cloud making the south meeting mist and fog patches through wales midlands and southern england. takes a few hours to clear in the morning. just moves away from west to scotland receipts and trying to develop widely and cloud bubbles up from east anglia towards a major squeeze out a light shower, on the whole a dry afternoon with sunshine. warmer thanit dry afternoon with sunshine. warmer than it was on tuesday, hyatt 19 and 20 degrees. the only downside with all that this temperature and sunshine, high pollen level we see on wednesday across england and wales in particular. through the evening overnight clear skies for a while but low cloud developing the sm of the north sea because that pushes in the end, misty mikey over
the health and perhaps a little chilly in rural areas, those are the temperatures in towns and cities. as he had over the next few days, we will find warmer weather pushing the whole of the country really warming up whole of the country really warming up across whole of the country really warming up across central areas of europe and that's where our air is coming from. so as he looked to thursday, we still had that next and low cloud to start the day, it tends to break out there will be practical here and there, most places enjoying the sunshine really i think on thursday andi sunshine really i think on thursday and i felt the sprees, a sunshine really i think on thursday and ifelt the sprees, a little bit chillier around the north sea coast with temperatures rising in general to 17 degrees in glascow, around 21-22 to 17 degrees in glascow, around 21—22 through the south of england. friday, hardly any caught around, gentle south and southeast breeze, lots of back pushing the went up and possibly late 20s to central about the scotland, hyatt 22 or 23 for the south east and midlands into the north, this is a flavour of what's to come in the next are —— easter
