In the papers today - Wednesday 18th July

At least 200 people were believed dead last night after a passenger plane crashed in the heart of South America's largest city, Sao Paulo. The accident, believed to be the biggest in Brazilian history, happened at 6.45pm local time when an Airbus-320 belonging to the Brazilian company TAM reportedly skidded on the runway while landing at Sao Paulo's domestic airport Congonhas - The Guardian
The details of journeys taken by millions of motorists are to be handed to police under a government 'Big Brother' plan to use road pricing technology in the fight against crime. Police would be given instant access to number plate data from 'smart' cameras monitoring congestion in cities and the movement of traffic on Britain's major roads - The Times
