Newspaper headlines: Barcelona shooting, and Bake Off returns

  • 22 August 2017
The Sun
Image caption The return of the Great British Bake Off features on many of Tuesday's front pages. The show will be making its first appearance on Channel 4 in a week's time, after moving from the BBC. The Sun reports on the number of adverts - taking up 16 minutes and 42 seconds of the 58 minute and 18 second show - saying it breaks the record for any programme in the channel's history.
Metro
Image caption The Metro splits its front page, dedicating the top half to the return of Bake Off, with a picture of judge Paul Hollywood and two of the new presenters, Prue Leith and Noel Fielding. The bottom of the page reports on the shooting of the Barcelona terror suspect, who was discovered wearing a fake explosive belt 25 miles (40km) west of the city after a tip off.
The Guardian
Image caption The Guardian focuses on the same two stories. The newspaper says Younes Abouyaaqoub, who is suspected of driving the van that killed 13 on Las Ramblas, shouted "Allahu Akbar" (God is greatest) just before he shot dead by police. On GBBO, it gives the show a positive review, saying "new ingredients but... tastes just as good".

Image caption The i also reports on the shooting of Abouyaaqoub, who it calls the "world's most wanted man". It also features a picture of Monday's total solar eclipse over the US, calling it the "most watched in human history".
Daily Mail
Image caption The Daily Mail pokes fun at Donald Trump with its coverage of the solar eclipse, captioning its picture of the US president and First Lady Melania Trump with: "It's even more orange than me!" The newspaper's lead story reports that High Street banks are shutting more than 10 branches per week in what it calls a "wave" of nationwide closures.
FT
Image caption The Financial Times also reports on "eclipse mania" in the US. In Britain, the newspaper writes how business chiefs are calling for the North-South divide on rail and road spending to stop. Lobby group Business North has written to Transport Secretary Chris Grayling, calling on him to "commit to reversing the under-investment in northern infrastructure".
The Times
Image caption The Times shows a three picture timeline of the eclipse above a story that says Theresa May is "under pressure" to send more British troops into Afghanistan to support the US. The newspaper reports that President Trump wants to deploy another 3,900 soldiers to fight the war on terror, and sources say Washington is pushing for an increase from the nearly 600 troops from the UK already there.
Daily Telegraph
Image caption The Daily Telegraph reports on "radical" new proposals from the NHS that could see families get money off their weekly shop if they hit step targets. Other schemes to encourage healthy living include free bikes, sprinting tracks on pavements and new outdoor public gyms.
Daily Express
Image caption The Daily Express says doctors have launched a new campaign to highlight the true impact of arthritis on patients. The newspaper reports that more than 10 million people suffer from the disease in the UK, but doctors are battling to find ways of stopping or easing the pain.
Daily star
Image caption Experts are warning the United Nations to halt the development of "killer robots" which will "hunt mankind to extinction", according to the Daily Star. One of them told the newspaper: "We do not have long to act".

The revamped Great British Bake Off is back next week and a press preview makes headlines across Tuesday's newspapers.

The Sun's lead story complains that it will be packed more tightly with ads than any show in Channel 4's history.

According to the newspaper, there will be four breaks lasting nearly 17 minutes. But Prue Leith - who replaces Mary Berry as one of the judges - has caused a stir after advising viewers on how to avoid the interruptions.

The Daily Telegraph says that when she appeared before the media on Monday, she cheerfully torpedoed Channel 4's hopes of persuading as many viewers as possible to tune in to Bake Off at 20:00 BST next Tuesday.

Instead, she advised fans to record the show and watch it later, fast-forwarding through the advertising.
