The papers: Saturday's front pages

Tony Grew, from the Politics Home website, and the Times's Matthew Syed joined the BBC News Channel to review Saturday's papers.

They began by discussing the Times's front page, which suggests that US officials fear Islamist militants in Iraq could have acquired surface-to-air missiles with the aim of targeting civilian airliners using a route over the area.

The pair then moved on to the Daily Express's coverage of Labour leader Ed Miliband's speech in which he admitted he looked like the animated character Wallace, from the Wallace and Gromit series.

They also examined the Daily Mail's front page, which suggests that police officers will confiscate mobile phones from drivers involved in crashes in order to find out whether the motorists were talking or texting in the moments before the incident.
