Child benefit would see cuts for the first two years of a Labour government, Ed Balls is expected to announce at the Labour Party conference today.
Teenage boys could soon be given the HPV jab, which protects against some forms of cancer, as well as girls.
The HPV vaccination programme was launched in 2008 in England to help prevent cervical cancer for girls aged 12-13.
But experts claim it should be rolled out to boys as it also protects against head, neck and prostate cancers.
HPV stands for Human Papilloma Virus and there are more than 100 different strains, which in some people can lead to an increased cancer risk.
The UK's Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI), an advisory body to the Department of Health, will meet today to discuss whether to extend the HPV vaccination programme to boys.
They will also talk about whether the vaccine should be offered to gay men.
Tesco have said "a number of staff" have been asked to step down while an investigation is carried out after the shock admission today that they overstated their half-year profits by £250 million profit.
Turkey's Deputy Prime Minister has said his government is "prepared for the worst" as hundreds of thousands of refugees stream into his country from Syria.
"We are prepared for the worst scenario, which is an influx of hundreds of thousands of refugees," Numan Kurtulmus told reporters in the capital Ankara.
The Prime Minister is "not being straight with the British people" over the cost and complexity of constitutional reform, Ed Balls said. The shadow chancellor accused David Cameron of talking "complete nonsense" over his demands that Scottish MPs be quickly stripped of the right to vote on laws affecting only England.
And he said rushed reforms risked "undermining the Union we have all just fought to save".
Mr Cameron's move to link the change to the cross-party timetable agreed for new powers for Holyrood in the wake of Scotland's rejection of independence in last week's referendum has angered Labour and dominated the start of its annual conference in Manchester.
Turkey's Deputy Prime Minister says more than 130,000 Syrian Kurds have crossed the border fleeing Islamic State militants.
The Turkish government have closed a number of border posts in a bid to reduce the influx of refugees.
The police hunt for missing teenager Alice Gross has come under scrutiny after reports officers did not immediately ask the Latvian authorities for help finding suspect Arnis Zalkalns.
The Met made formal contact with Latvian officers on the weekend, but there are concerns Mr Zalkalns may have fled to his home country as early as September 4th, the Times (£) reports.
Fourteen-year-old Alice disappeared on August 28th after last being sighted on a towpath in west London.
Labour MP Keith Vaz, who chairs the Home Affairs Select Committee, said he was "very concerned" at the length of time it had taken to expand the investigation into Mr Zalkalns.
But a former detective told Good Morning Britain the Met were "throwing everything" at the inquiry and deserved credit for identifying Mr Zalkalns as a suspect.
A City analyst has said he is "flabbergasted" by the Tesco profit overstatement of £250 million.
Shore Capital retail analyst Clive Black said: "These are serious times for Tesco and its shareholders."
Tesco shares, which have already fallen by 39% over the last year, slumped by another 11% today.
New Zealand Prime Minster John Key wants the nation to vote next year on changing its flag.
It currently depicts the Southern Cross star constellation and includes Britain's Union Jack in the upper left corner.
But opponents say it is too similar to the Australian flag and does not reflect New Zealand's independence from Britain.
Fresh from a big election win, Mr Key told television station TV3 that he wants a national referendum held in 2015 after first raising the idea of a flag vote in March.
Mr Key's centre-right National Party won 48% of the vote in Saturday's election, giving it a third term in office.
