The papers: Thursday's front pages

Telegraph columnist Tim Stanley and the broadcaster and football commentator Clarke Carlisle joined the BBC News Channel to review Thursday's papers.

They began by discussing the Independent's front page, which challenges US President Barack Obama to declare his next move in response to the threat from Islamic State militants.

The pair then moved on to the Daily Mirror's coverage of Brett and Naghmeh King's reunion with terminally ill son, Ashya, after their release from a Spanish prison. They had been imprisoned after leaving the UK to seek alternative treatment for him.

The reviewers also examined a Guardian story suggesting that police are increasingly asking crime victims to carry out their own investigations by speaking to neighbours and checking CCTV images, and the Daily Express's report that European Union officials are planning to ban the most powerful kettles.
