more on today was we focused much more on the heroics and extraordinary bravery not just of the emergency services but of the public. that's quite pleasing because we are not talking about the evil because of this we are talking about the goodness which we need to overcome it. that's what a positive thing and it's except the times to their credit has got by far in a news since, and they use the word carefully, best story. they have uncovered something that none of the other papers new. it raises a lot of questions and if the powerful front page. it's how bad the guardian is laid out. it's dented the impact by putting in the corner, the times has the big black stripe across the top. this is why it's problematic. this isa this is why it's problematic. this is a convicted terrorist, he was let out and attending a conference on prisoner rehabilitation. it makes this quite political. we understand he was let out a year ago not let
out for this. he was let out a year ago and was tagged. who made the decision to release him? and on what judgement today make that decision? you have to ask if he underwent a rehabilitation or de—radicalization programme, and if so how was this being monitored? these are serious questions and somebody somewhere is going to have to have responsibility for this. i hate to say, this is the middle of election and that could quite difficult. i think the times coverage is the best i totally agree with jason. it's that he was released from prison about a year ago after agreeing to wear an electronic tag. use to enforce cu rfews and restrict electronic tag. use to enforce curfews and restrict his movements. there are obviously still keeping an eye on him but this question about how much rehabilitation he had and i agree with jason and saying there's
big questions as to the wisdom of letting this gentleman free. the latest details we had this evening as you both mentioned, we believe that he was attending a conference as part of the criminology department of the university of cambridge. we have actually heard from the university themselves, such as very quicklyjust take you through their statement. that said that they are gravely concerned by reports that university of cambridge staff, students and alumni were caught up in the incident at london bridge. they are urgently seeking clarification and further details. our thoughts are with all of those who have been affected by these terrible events. at the beginning of this there was a bit of confusion as to where exactly this incident took place, and where police were called to but we understand now and may have taken place within the hall itself. if we turn to the front page of the telegraph there have been so
many tributes paid to the members of the public that stepped in. absolutely and this really comes back to jason's point, when you get these things that people were stab so pointlessly, i use that word advisedly again, your thoughts to term to the people, obviously, very badly injured and there are two that have been killed and it's very difficult to know we don't know the condition of the other three, was it three that were stabbed? there were five injured, two sadly passed away. so of those five injured to have died we don't know the condition of the other three. of course you think about that. also in the telegraph they talk about questions about prevention and comes back to the point about why this particular terrorist or convict had been allowed to go free. this is where the big question is why was he allowed to go back on the streets
when it was potentially dangerous. the trouble is it's always been clever with hindsight. we cities think that he should have never been let out, perhaps of the time you just don't know. it's very difficult to know about the big questions will be asked. on your point about the bravery, you wonder how you would react in such a circumstance, and would we be able to show the courage that these people showed? i have incredible admiration and because it's a totally new and unforeseeable experience to have that kind of courage is a set earlier one of the best things about it is it's the best things about it is it's the best answer to terrorism is to show that kind of unity of purpose for people to actually show bravery. and it helps actually in the response,
so it helps actually in the response, so that's very good. 0n the issue ruth was raising but well reasoned article. it does explore the difficulties of the security services. we don't know whether the perpetrator of the atrocity today was acting alone, don't know if he was acting alone, don't know if he was part of the cell, and as they say the monitoring of individuals is extremely difficult. of a group is easier because a committee with each other, then for you can intercept purchase by themselves they been radicalised we don't know the motive behind us. but that's a peek at how that mind gets worked. then there's a personaljust ask intellectually and it's very difficult. except and as they say in the article they are
most critical of themselves, they did make mistakes last time with the attack on london bridge two years ago. lessons to be learned. we spoke toa ago. lessons to be learned. we spoke to a former met officer that worked in counterterrorism, also an author who produced a guidebook for such incidents, peter power was his name and he did say even loan actors are never truly alone. as always intelligence out there... behind him and obviously people behind him who share his sympathies, and they do say he is in is the most terrorist sog say he is in is the most terrorist so g heidi. i must tell you when these non—police officers got involved, the public got involved in coping with that, i wonder if they knew he had this quote, suicide vest on him, it turned out it was a hoax vest but for some similar industry and you think gosh they have a suicide vest on what would you do?
that makes their actions even more remarkable. exactly right. let's turn to the ft, thus the final paper we are looking in this edition dealing with the story. the message to be vigilant but we have to stress that it's just london where the members of the public will be nervous watching these scenes, lots of implications for everybody.|j mentioned manchester of course with the manchester arena, and 22 people we re the manchester arena, and 22 people were killed and that was a person with a suicide vest that blew himself up. did i heartonight with a suicide vest that blew himself up. did i hear tonight there was a terrorist incident in the netherlands? in the hague area. then you find them in paris and in the european problem to some extent. it's a global problem. we've had australia and sri lanka. some consolation. good to know we are not alone. let's turn to the page, page
11 alone. let's turn to the page, page ii the inside pages of the daily mailand ii the inside pages of the daily mail and let's go back to politics and of chris kemp and he has been suspended to tomorrow following that statement from boris johnson who suspended to tomorrow following that statement from borisjohnson who has called a cobra committee meeting, but yes what grab you about, you've got a smile on your face. very pro borisjohnson, pro brexit daily mail... which i totally agree. i would be disappointed you did not, we would have nothing to talk about. the lovely interpretation of boris johnson's comments in a radio interview when he suggested he does not want donald trump when he comes over and next week from the summit to interfere in british politics. he bet you he does not want donald trump to each because the last time donald trump interfered he said that the nhs was on the table and then had to recant quickly after the british said please don't say that. chris the american president has
many wonderful qualities in one of them is he's very unpredictable. he could say anything that could be prove n very could say anything that could be proven very embarrassing in the middle of the election. you don't know what he is doing to tweet. the daily mail is saying this could play tojeremy corbyn's daily mail is saying this could play to jeremy corbyn's advantage.|j daily mail is saying this could play to jeremy corbyn's advantage. i was just going to say i think generally overseas politicians should stay out of british politics, especially in this general election. i remember obama coming along in the run—up to the referendum when he said if the you leave the eu you will be last in the queue for a trade agreement, that went down incredibly badly. just please keep outcome of these are our domestic politics, whatever one's particular opinion about trump again just one's particular opinion about trump againjust stay one's particular opinion about trump again just stay out. when he said it you can get excellent trade deal of course all of those people who bemoaned 0bama's intervention praised his. it's funny. obama was
being obama. we will have to leave it there for now. but we will carry—on at 1130. thank you again and jason beattie and ruth lea will be back at 11.30pm for another look at the papers. it's all there for you seven days a week at bbc.co.uk/papers. dominated by one story this evening. and if you miss the programme any evening, you can watch it later on bbc iplayer. back with you in around four minutes' time with all the top stories at the latest on the london bridge incident. for now we will see you. hello there. just about all of us have seen that sonny eric, but colder weather had spread its way in. skies like us were fairly common
