The papers: Saturday's front pages

Independent columnist Yasmin Alibhai-Brown and Wales Today's political editor David Williamson reviewed Saturday's newspapers for the BBC News Channel.

They began by discussing the latest coverage of the events in Ukraine including the Sun's report which uses pictures of chess pieces to illustrate its story of the political crisis.

A Guardian report that the bosses of Britain's biggest banks are to be awarded millions of pounds in shares to circumvent an EU-imposed bonus cap prompted a conversation about earnings. The review then moved on to a Financial Times story about professionals being priced out of parts of London's housing market because their wages have not kept up with an "uber middle" elite.

Labour leader Ed Miliband's interview in the Independent in which he outlined his plans to reform party membership and the Times front page story about schoolgirls affected by anorexia were also talking points.
