The papers: Thursday's front pages

Journalist Lucy Cavendish and Reuters correspondent Tom Bergin joined the BBC News Channel to review Thursday's papers.

They began by discussing coverage of the hunt for the jihadist - believed to be British - who was filmed beheading American journalist James Foley in Syria, and the Independent's front page which asks how the West will deal with Islamic State extremists.

The pair then moved on to the Financial Times's front page, which reports a split in the Bank of England's monetary policy committee over whether to increase interest rates, and examined the Guardian's preview of GCSE results day.
