Newspaper headlines: British earthquake death, and drowned swimmers

Pictures in the Daily Telegraph and elsewhere in the morning's newspapers capture the aftermath of the earthquake in central Italy.

That particular paper says people wonder why so many modern buildings collapsed, and are asking whether lessons were not learned from tremors a few years ago.

The Guardian says the country is facing up to its failure to protect people "from seismic disaster".

But the Times believes better construction methods have been used in recent years, after a long history of simply rebuilding in vulnerable areas.

Student 'crack down'

The near-record level of immigration into the UK is, according to the Daily Mirror, the fault of Theresa May.

The paper argues that it was during her six years as home secretary that the numbers rose, despite Conservative promises to bring them under control.

The Times comments that she is now prime minister as a result - because unhappiness about what was happening inspired, in part, the vote to leave the EU.

But, whoever was responsible, the Daily Express insists that Britain must regain control of its borders. When negotiating our exit, it says, Mrs May must "make sure that we get back the right to decide who does or does not get to come and live here".

The Sun tells Mrs May the first step to take is to turn away unskilled migrants and people coming here without a confirmed job offer.

The Daily Mail welcomes a promise to crack down on people from outside the EU who enter Britain saying they come as students "but who never go home".

And the Times argues that it would be a serious mistake to drive down the number of foreign students, saying they are valued purchasers of a service, and often become "potential ambassadors for British values".

Meanwhile, the number of babies now being born in this country to foreign mothers is "most troubling", says the Mail.

The Express calls the trend "worrying" and says "our small island cannot cope with what is being asked of it".

The Telegraph thinks "childbirth puts burdens on the native population", adding to the pressure on welfare hospitals and schools.

Classic camper

The emergence of Poles as the largest of Britain's migrant groups is highlighted by the Times. The paper comments that "an era of mass immigration has changed the face of the UK for ever".

One unexpected consequence of Brexit, says the Guardian, is that the price of a bacon butty is going up.

The paper says the referendum vote - and, as the Mail also reports, increasing demand in China - are pushing up the cost of pork, possibly by nearly 40%.

The two papers' experts try to take stock of the post-Brexit economy.

Larry Elliot, writing in the Guardian, thinks the effect will be "more slow puncture than car crash".

Alex Brummer, in the Mail, thinks ordinary citizens are more optimistic about the future, and any damage to confidence was a short-term shock.

Lovers of old vehicles will admire the camper-van in the Mail - possibly the first built in Britain.

The motor home was created on a Pontiac chassis in 1936 by a coach-builder in Bexhill on Sea. With all its original fittings, it's for sale and, according to the present owner, "drives like a dream".
