The papers: Friday's front pages

Robert Fox, defence editor of London's Evening Standard, and Politics Home website parliamentary editor Tony Grew reviewed the papers for the BBC News Channel.

They began by discussing the Times's lead story about falling petrol prices, before moving on to the paper's coverage of research suggesting that many cancers are caused by "bad luck", rather than lifestyle or genetics.

The pair then moved on to the Independent's front-page lead, which reports that surveillance agency GCHQ is recruiting "IT whizz-kids" to be trained as spies, and the paper's story about the crush at Shanghai's new year celebrations.
