The papers: Saturday's front pages

Author Alex Wheatle and broadcaster Lynn Faulds Wood joined the BBC News Channel to review Saturday's papers.

They began by discussing the Daily Mail's front page, which alleges that police covered up a youngster's claim that he was abused by an MP in a west London guest house. The paper says Scotland Yard declined to comment.

The pair then moved on to the Times's splash, which reports the Greek prime minister's criticism of the British Museum's loan of an Elgin Marbles statue to Russia.

They also examined the Guardian's coverage of UKIP leader Nigel Farage's comments about women breastfeeding in public.
