Image caption Expenses for peers in the House of Lords are spiralling “out of control”, according to analysis by the Sunday Times. The number of peerages is increasing, while money claimed by peers rose by 29% in a year – and they have recently voted to give themselves a pay rise, the paper says. The result? A “triple hit for taxpayers,” the report claims.
Image caption Downing Street’s apparent derision at the European Union’s behaviour ahead of Brexit trade talks makes the lead story in the Sunday Express. A source tells the paper EU officials seem “divided and distracted” ahead of the talks – while the tabloid mocks what it calls the “chaos” of an EU budget summit which ended without agreement on Friday.
Image caption The Daily Mail’s front page calls into question the Duke of York’s alibi on the night a teenage trafficking victim says he had sex with her. Prince Andrew has firmly denied all allegations against him, but the paper says a former royal protection officer has contradicted his claim that he was at home all evening on the night in question.
Image caption The Labour leadership contest takes the top spot in the Observer, as contender Sir Keir Starmer urges his party to “pull together”. And in what the paper calls his “strongest personal attack to date” on the prime minister, Sir Keir says “dangerous” Boris Johnson should not be caricatured “as a clown”.
Image caption In other politics news, the Sunday Telegraph leads on claims that Mr Johnson wants to replace a number of permanent secretaries because they are at odds with Conservative ministers and advisers. The paper also reports that former culture secretary Baroness Morgan of Cotes has warned that BBC reform is “unavoidable”.
Image caption Police investigating the disappearance of Madeleine McCann have asked a British barmaid for information about her German ex-boyfriend, the Sunday Mirror reports. Three-year-old Madeleine vanished from a holiday apartment in Praia da Luz, Portugal, in 2007.
Image caption Trophy hunting leads the Star’s front page, with a former firearms expert being accused of offering people the “sick” chance of shooting animals on big game trips in Africa. A picture of a dead zebra accompanies the article, with Peter Jones, who has worked with the Met Police, allegedly posing with a client.
Image caption And finally, a “cocaine-smuggling granny” fears she will die before serving her eight-year sentence in jail in Portugal, the Sunday People reports. Susan Clarke, 71, who was jailed for drug offences alongside her husband, tells the paper: “I’ve been given a death sentence.”
