The Times splashes on a stamp duty shake-up from the Tories, with the party attempting to sway voters ahead of the General Election.

The Daily Mail and the i weekend splash on the Prime Minister pledging the biggest benefits crackdown in decades to defeat the UK’s “sick note culture”.

The Daily Express is rallying support behind Dame Esther Rantzen and her assisted dying Bill. The newspaper’s petition calling on MPs to vote on the proposed law now has 200,000 signatures.

The Daily Telegraph splashes with a piece on a Metropolitan Police threat to a Jewish man after he antagonised protesters who were peacefully marching for a free Palestine.

The Sun opts for a piece on Dele Alli’s ex-girlfriend Ruby Mae, who has recalled her horror as masked men broke in and robbed the former couple back in 2020.
