11:31 pm
hello and welcome to our look ahead to what the the papers will be bringing us tomorrow. with me are kezia dugdale, director, john smith centre for politics & public service at glasgow uni and kate andrews, economic correspondent at the spectator. welcome back with you. more times to go through these papers now. tomorrow's front pages starting with. .. as the uk government defends its decision to quarantine those travelling from spain, the metro leads with uk prime minister boris johnson's warning that a second wave of coronavirus is under way in europe. that story also on the front page of the financial times, with spain's prime minister pedro sanchez calling the uk's decision ‘unjust‘.
11:32 pm
the times also has that story, as well as a picture of the england cricketer stuart broad, who became only the seventh bowler to take 500 test wickets as england clinched a series victory over west indies yesterday. the telegraph has been speaking to the boss of london's heathrow airport who has urged the uk government to provide coronavirus tests on arrival in a bid to rescue the summer holidays — the paper also carries a picture of the duchess of cornwall sporting a liberty print face mask on a visit to the national gallery in london. the mirror's lead is the news that police in germany, investigating the disappearance of madeleine mccann 13 years ago, have been excavating an allotment in the city of hanover. and the guardian leads on calls for 1.5 million additional school meals to be offered to pupils in england — the paper also covers
11:33 pm
the final day ofjohnny depp‘s libel trial against the sun newspaper — at which his former wife, amber heard, spoke publicly of her heartache. welcome back to you both. should we start with the male? —— daily mail. em fear of second wave in two weeks. this seems to have risen much faster than what they were predicting which was early autumn. yes. just as we we re was early autumn. yes. just as we were hearing about preparations for the winter in dealing with covid—i9 and a potential winter flu. the winter in dealing with covid—i9 and a potential winterflu. looks like a second way to be coming to the shores of the uk much earlier and here. and within the next two weeks. off the back of 14,000 new cases in spain in the past week. 700 in the uk go out much smaller number but it is up 28% from two weeks ago.
11:34 pm
the article and the development describes the prime minister as spooked by rises in both the us and spain. big warnings ahead. a lot of uncertainty for anyone thinking of travelling from now on in to europe. some companies mentioned were belgium and france. another countries within europe. indeed. there's been a huge not to the confidence of tourism industries and travel industry. and the passengers. people on holiday. we simply don't know now if you want to go abroad and what sledgehammer policy will come in while you are there and preparing to go. that could lead to a14 preparing to go. that could lead to a 14 day quarantine. the uk has been slow coming out a lockdown compared to the european counterpart. 0ne slow coming out a lockdown compared to the european counterpart. one of the reasons that the two weeks' time is mentioned in the front page is because the uk government is looking to countries that have open up slightly faster and try to gauge what could happen here. it is important to remember that this is not a confirmed second wave yet. it
11:35 pm
does seem like infections are starting to rise in certain areas but in the case of spain, we know that predominately that is because every group of young people in particular areas were adhering to social distancing. it is not to say thatis social distancing. it is not to say that is out of course concerning about what could be coming down coming down the line. what do you think about the messaging on all of this? speaking to you and glasgow, your first this? speaking to you and glasgow, yourfirst minister made this? speaking to you and glasgow, your first minister made it very clear a few hours ago that as a scottish citizen, she really would not be travelling anywhere because of the risk of this. and yet, here in england, we have had conflicting m essa 9 es in england, we have had conflicting messages about now is the time to travel and out the time she's been aware a mask and now is not the time to wear a mask. what are your thoughts on that? yes. there is no doubt that it's been a difference in the committee case and strategy between the scottish government and the uk government. for example, nicola sturgeon made a specific point of printing out daily press conferences for several months now and the prime minister has done it are far fewer occasions and they
11:36 pm
have dropped the daily briefings across the uk which had a different minister on each day. so there's a lot more scope in the uk for m essa 9 es lot more scope in the uk for m essa g es to lot more scope in the uk for messages to sound different in different language and different interest has led to a bit of confusion but i would say that that the first minister they get into a bit of a pickle that's the issue of spain initially scotland said they we re spain initially scotland said they were going to keep spain off of the list while the uk put them back on only to change their minds again like the uk 14 hours later. apart from that one blip on the issue of spain and travel to and from, that particular country much clearer m essa 9 es particular country much clearer messages i would say coming out of scotla nd messages i would say coming out of scotland perhaps the rest of uk. that's the government think it is a responsible of people to travel here? no. they have not implied that. in fact, people are being lightly encouraged to get back to normality but i think the key thing the government is trying to do here is keep the guidance they that those who feel confident enough to go outside to do so. they are actually
11:37 pm
concerned that the tourist industry and hospitality industries here in the uk and knowing that those not coming in from abroad will make that harder as well. sol coming in from abroad will make that harder as well. so i think they didn't really want those who feel confident to do so to put themselves ina confident to do so to put themselves in a sociallyjust the weight wearing a mask when it is appropriate to do so. i do agree that messaging has been mixed to some extent but of course, these are completely uncharted time. and i think we are sending to this idea in my opinion begrudgingly but still used to the idea that we may have policy change on one because the evidence changes on it well. so it is about looking at that are number and the rate of infection in the uk and the rate of infection in the uk and abroad. and having to make quick decisions about how you handle it. let's go on to the metro newspaper. same story for them. europe has a second wave. 0minous signs, boris johnson warned viruses bubbling up again. the metro looking a bit more detail about how this is happened. because a looking at the numbers,
11:38 pm
they are not hugely significant at they are not hugely significant at the moment but it does appear that britt's returning with the virus has prompted this. yes. i think the feeling coming through the article in the metro is there has been so much effort and focus on driving down infection rates within the borders of the uk that perhaps the only reason you can see such a rise so only reason you can see such a rise so quickly over the past week or the passport fortnight is because the pandemic and disease has arrived to the airport terminal. it is being imported from people returning from their holidays with covid—19 and tans. hence the requirement for a quarantine that 14 day quarantine in particular when people returning from spain are the main focus of the moment. should, would it be easier if the prime minister said any people thinking about travelling at the moment should not go because the chances are you will be asked to
11:39 pm
quarantine when you come back and the government will not take on the financial responsibilities obviously for those people are going to be told if you can't work when you come back, you have to take that time off unpaid. i guess it would be easier from the perspective of tracking and tracing the virus but you have major issues there. if you tell people they cannot travel at all, number one, what is the economic impact of that? it is huge and painful. number two, people have been in some kind of lockdown and social distancing for months and months on end. a lot of people are going to be asking themselves if the government cannot create a scenario where we can go back to some kind of normal, and this is will be the indefinite way in which we live, i'm not comfortable with that. so they're walking a tight rope here and have to be careful about... how much money should the government give? i think the last when people flew to spain, there was only five hours warning. some people might have been in the airat warning. some people might have been in the air at that time. i was in the air. i was coming back from
11:40 pm
spain and landed to the news. yes, a lot of people were not in my position. i was one of the lucky oi'ies position. i was one of the lucky ones who came in on the right side of it. a lot of people are not having to quarantine. it very difficult for there were commitments in their parenting commitments. and the rest of it. i think the warning to people that things could change quickly is really the key one. because if you really believe there isa because if you really believe there is a public health threat, you are not necessarily in a position to give people a lot another foot that i would highlight that the lack of a proper track and trace app has met the government is in a much more difficult situation when people arrive in the uk and any activity to really know where the virus is at any given time and who might be spreading it. i don't think it is just the fact that infections are rising. it is the lack of a uk ability to handle that completely thatis ability to handle that completely that is also proving a problem on our side. track and trace as we know hasn't been a success operation so far. on that fine warning, do you
11:41 pm
think that is enough for people?m has to be driven by the evidence wasn't at the evidences that you need to introduce something very quickly to stop the infections, the government is a right to do so. 0bviously government is a right to do so. obviously it has huge implications for the people affected and indeed on the insurance they may not be covered for that and a suggestion that many people will not have bella holiday insurance if they had booked anything from march onwards. so people will find themselves in a bit ofa people will find themselves in a bit of a financial trap but to protect peoples health which is the first and foremost priority of the government they have to move swiftly. let's go on to the guardian newspaper. the corporate scene, the same story but a slightly different angle from the guardian. —— the quarantine. saying that the travellers quarantine could be cutting and half. according to the evidence they have been got a site. talk us to this one. the guardian has said that it may be possible to cut the amount of time of quarantine that people would have to be in
11:42 pm
under by doing proper testing a week after they arrived back from their former location. the idea is in the five to eight days after somebody comes back they get the covid—19 test and at that point you could find a vast majority of cobourg cases being imported and anybody who didn't have test positive could go back to the normalised but the s 50 something we were of getting get on the previous front page was that 14 daysis the previous front page was that 14 days is a really long time to be quarantine. especially if you have symptoms. you don't think you will be contagious and the fact that we haven't got into a play shed where we are able to whittle that number down slightly by bringing in proper testing and bringing in proper tracing, and makes it very difficult for anybody thinking about going abroad or as we move into local lockdowns, people simply just abroad or as we move into local lockdowns, people simplyjust coming in contact potential he was somebody who had covid—19 and passing it on. so they could be key, track and trace is key. anything to get it down from 14 days is really important i think for the economy,
11:43 pm
for stability and for the people's mental health who have been aside for a long time and really do want to be getting back out there. not that many people actually following up that many people actually following up and checking if people are staying at home when they are meant to be in quarantine. let's go the daily telegraph. heathrow boss called for a test at airports. this is one solution according to a boss of heathrow airport. i hundred and £50 a test. it is being used in jersey and it seems as it is been used there quite successfully. —— £150. hugely successful in jersey. they had done over 900 test, not a single one has proven a false positive. this is a very panicked plea from the head of heathrow airport who is clearly worried about economic consequences for the disruption and the prospect of flights and people going on the holidays. what he is arguing for sa to test system so you went right
11:44 pm
backin to test system so you went right back in the united kingdom you get tested as she came into the arrival flounced and also get tested again five or eight days later. —— arrive alone. if you had a second negative test, you could return to work. on day six or day nine. and that would reduce the quarantine time substantially that people might face filing a return from their holiday. a big plea there from heathrow that the government looks very seriously at this. a note of caution compel and take the matter of hours for 930 people arrive to heathrow. that is a big number of people. nothing at all at heathrow to the scale of this being vastly greater and the costs of course would be a lot greater as well. do we know what the processing time is generally for the test at the moment? it is got a much faster. the uk really has rent up its capacity. and we are nowhere near hitting capacity every day not as many people are needing kobe test on a daily as previously thought. it is possible that you could do this rather efficiently with results
11:45 pm
within 24 and 48 hour 72 hours at the most. but it is quite right to point out that if you will test every single passenger coming through heathrow, who has decided to stay in the uk, you will have to mmp stay in the uk, you will have to ramp up yourability stay in the uk, you will have to ramp up your ability across the board, notjust at ramp up your ability across the board, not just at the airport but beyond. let's not forget that in the first wave of the virus we experience this spring despite the fa ct experience this spring despite the fact that the virus originated in wuhan, we know the majority of cases will come again from mainland europe to the uk. that's why everybody is putting some into fences on travellers because how the virus arrived in the first place. of course. 0ne story below that, the photograph of the duchess of cornwall with her colourful facemask. and liberty print a lot of people wearing colourful facemask now or once they design themselves. the story below, the one we discussed, social divides driving a k shaped recovery, for those who are inajob k shaped recovery, for those who are in a job which is not any viable
11:46 pm
industry, the future is a lot brighter than for those in other more vulnerable areas. he has. a prediction this will not be a v—shaped recession or even a u—shaped recession. but a case to procession. what that means in practice is ill be different for two very different groups of people. people like myself who have a co mforta ble people like myself who have a comfortable job working from home are actually saying their income rice because we are saving more and spending less and going out and doing things we might otherwise do. however, if you come from a more working or front—line however, if you come from a more working orfront—linejob, however, if you come from a more working or front—line job, perhaps working or front—line job, perhaps working in the hospitality trade, where you are facing redundancy or a senior hours reducing your cost of living rice, you're having a different experience. so i winding there in a new type of recession to discuss. —— cost of living rising. a story to have. because in some sectors for the front looks came to be extended but the government has already placed a huge sum of money to this wish they would not be able
11:47 pm
to this wish they would not be able to do for ever. will they? no. it is very unlikely. there is no hint from the treasury get they would extend the treasury get they would extend the furlough scheme, sector by sector. they are hesitant to do that. they don't want to be seen as picking winners and losers because they know that manyjobs are vulnerable, even those working from home, it will be a very tough recession to come out of. this is a very unique kind of economic contraction. we have a lot of faith in our financial system but rather we have this fear of a virus that is changing peoples behaviours wildly and overnight. and unfortunately, we know unemployment is going to rise as the furlough scheme winds down. the question is how quickly that the market at that and how does the government policy play into that and help people to rescale and get back oi'i help people to rescale and get back on the job and how do we support people during that process. we've heard about the apprentice game and £1000 or whatever, so much information coming out from rishi sunak and the treasury, did we know what pick up or take up there has been of those schemes? i know this
11:48 pm
to share specialist area. we don't have those information about the apprentice scheme get or the job retention scheme which is supposed to be the answer to the furlough scheme. they are paying companies £1000 per furlough employee that they bring back. we don't have a lot of ha rd they bring back. we don't have a lot of hard data on the ship but we note that tens and tens of millions of pounds are being spent so far on business loans, we know that the furlough scheme has been taken up by 70% of businesses, so there's been a lot of demand for support, the question is coming out of that support them with the slightly lighter touch screens, how effective are they going to be? my fear is that even if you bring the apprentice it seems like this come in previous years when the government has got involved in the partnerships we seen the number go down oftentimes the intervention of the government comes that witches are not the right prescription to the problem. ifear something are not the right prescription to the problem. i fear something so vast and impactful to cover 19 that perhaps we haven't quite gotten the prescription right you. let's look at the times finally. 0ne
11:49 pm
prescription right you. let's look at the times finally. one man who hasn't got any money problems at the moment and seems to be getting richer by the hour is the owner of amazon, jeff pazo. supermarkets at war as amazon goes nuclear. with free deliveries. —— jeff bezos. they are in the right position for world domination. i think they might already be there. the company which last valued west where the 1.5 trillion us dollars. it was reported last week thatjeff bezos made $13 billion in one day alone. and now he has his eyes very firmly set on supermarkets and competing with them and the home deliveries come offering service to people with amazon prime prescriptions where they would get their groceries delivered to the door and a weekly basis if they spent over £40 for free bus real challenge to the major supermarkets across the country. the only reason amazon can do this is because they can absorb the cost of the delivery charges in the way the other competing supermarkets just
11:50 pm
possibly cannot do. how should the other supermarkets reacted this? we shouldn't be surprised when everybody goes inside and the market shifts. and we start seeing new kinds of competition online and for home deliveries. amazon isjumping in front think were really stuck out to me is the new boss their waitress is quoted you think it would be critical but actually is, start a little overwhelming but he says that it shows that amazon is committed to the grocery industry. it sounds like we mightjust the grocery industry. it sounds like we might just be the grocery industry. it sounds like we mightjust be excited to get competitors to. we will have to wait and see but overall is probably good news for the consumer. they deliver cost magic got cheaper. boring times for the whole sector. if it does come to that for amazon. —— whirring time. thank you both for taking us to the first editions of the papers. that is it for a look tonight.
11:51 pm
hello, this is your latest sports news... england have thrashed the west indies by 269 runs to win the third and final test at old trafford and take the series 2—1. the day belonged to stuart broad — who's become the second english cricketer afterjames anderson to take 500 test wickets.. here's our sports correspondent andy swiss. victory for england and history for one of its stars. after beginning the day on 499 test wickets, stuart broad promptly charged into the record books. must be! it is! 500 for stuart broad. he had done it. kraigg brathwaite the victim as broad joined one of cricket's most exclusive clubs. just the second england player to take 500 test wickets, after his team—matejimmy anderson,
11:52 pm
who was there to congratulate him. so was his dad chris, the match referee no less. not a bad game to be watching. it is some 13 years since broad made his test match debut and took his first wicket so, how does 500 of them feel? really special moment and i think, as players, you want milestone moments to happen in test match wins and test series wins so for it to have contributed to us winning here and winning the series is awesome. you know, it still looks a bit strange when i look at 500 on the screen or a bit of paper. it's like, wow, that seems so many. after that bowling milestone, broad promptly bagged a catch too... broad wants it, broad calls it. broad takes it! the west indies quickly faded. by playing this first ever biosecure series, they have helped rescue the cricketing summer but this was not the ending they had hoped
11:53 pm
for as chris woakes rattled through them, with five wickets and unerring accuracy. fittingly, though, it was broad who rounded things off. after being left out of the first test, not a bad response, as england clinched a compelling series. a day which belonged to them but, above all, to him. andy swiss, bbc news. so a great day for stuart broad and england. here are the thoughts of captainjoe root. to keep the hunger to learn and to improve who we had three to keep the hunger to learn and to improve and we had three partnerships with the bat and that's been brilliant. brilliant step brilliant step forward for us and we are looking to build on that and keep trying to get that big first inning score and try to get the game forward from there. we have made strides with this series. and again keep looking to take 20 wickets as an attack which again the last two games are now standing out. stradivarius will target the prix de l‘arc de triomphe later in the season after making history today at glorious goodwood 49—year—old frankie dettori was on board to win a record fourth goodwood cup with the odds on favourite this afternoon. stradivarius is trained
11:54 pm
byjohn gosden. there were no fans present but around 4,000 members and guests will be allowed in on the meetings final day on saturday as one of the test events. men's british number one dan evans beat kyle edmund on day two of the battle of the brits in roehampton. evans lost yesterday in a tight game against cameron norrie but he responded today — with too much for edmund, winning in straight sets 6—4, 6—4... evans not too happy with end of match racquet tap, feeling his opponent's conduct might have crossed the line a little — proof that it's still competitive even without fans. the women's british number johanna konta also lost out yesterday but recovered today for her first competitive win since lockdown. she impressively came back from a set and three love down to beat katie boulter. but there was a defeat for andy murray in the mixed doubles.
11:55 pm
he lost out tojoe salisbury and teenager emma raducanu in a final set tie break, and unfortunately managed to hit his partnerjodie burrage on match point!... but she seemed to see the funny side. that's all the sport for now. hello. it looks like july is planning to leave us with something to remember it by. although if you are a fan of summer heat, this all may be to little too late. but friday, the last day ofjuly, it is going to be a hot one for many of us. it is quite a transformation this week from what we had at the start of the week with low pressure and strong winds and rain and high pressure building, and although low pressure will bring a bit more rain back to some of us before the week is done, it is the position of these pressure systems which will allow the wind to turn around to a south, southeasterly for friday, drawing up that heat,
11:56 pm
lifting those temperatures, it's not out of the question the uk could record its highest temperature of the year so far on friday. we will get to all of that as we go through the forecast. clearly we are not there yet. and for wednesday, it will be a little bit warmer out there. the winds are lighter and many places will be dry and these are the starting temperatures. it will be cooler than this in rural spots and some of us in single figures as the day begins and is still quite windy in the northern isles, parts of northern scotland, but the wind will ease further during the day and we will lose any outbreaks of rain as it become drier into the afternoon. for many places, it will be dry. best of sunny spells probably in southern scotland and northern england, quite a bit of cloud around temperatures a little bit higher. and you notice we do have a weather system that will bring some rain towards northern ireland to end the day, some patchy rain affecting parts of wales and northwest england as well. it may ease for a time and some heavier rain overnight pushing into northern ireland and on thursday, that will spread north across scotland, we're ahead of it with the clear skies and it will be chilly for some of us as thursday begins.
11:57 pm
here goes the rain on thursday. it clears northern ireland, quite heavy in places, then pushes across scotland. for england and wales, look at this. a lot of sunshine to come. the wind going around to the southeast and the temperatures are heading up. it does get hotter on thursday, that heat is more widespread by the time we get to friday, and in northern ireland, it will be close to the weather front here. not particularly hot. we will see a bit of rain to end the day. we cannot rule out a thunder shower into parts of eastern england as well. and notice how the temperatures come right back down again at the start of the weekend. that is because the system bringing rain to end friday is a cold front which moves east across the uk for the weekend as it turns much cooler again.
