The abrupt dismissal of Donald Trump's communications director, Anthony Scaramucci, makes many of the front pages.

"White House in turmoil" is the headline in the Times, which says the new Chief of Staff, the battle-hardened General John Kelly, did not take long to end Mr Scaramucci's brief career as the West Wing's chief troublemaker.

The i newspaper says Mr Scaramucci's recent foul-mouthed tirade against senior colleagues was seen as evidence of a lack of discipline that left him devoid of any credibility.

The paper says he was apparently escorted from the White House by security guards.

Several papers report on the intervention by Downing Street in the Brexit debate.

The Daily Telegraph says Number 10 moved to soothe cabinet nerves - and rein in Chancellor Philip Hammond - by appearing to contradict his suggestion that free movement of people would continue after the UK leaves the EU.

The Sun attacks Mr Hammond, saying he is starting to prove a liability, with every speech and interview an accident waiting to happen.

The paper urges the prime minister to tell him to belt up.

But the chancellor is defended by former Conservative leader William Hague, writing in the Telegraph.

He says Mr Hammond deserves great credit for suggesting a transition period after Brexit, during which several aspects of the UK's relationship with the EU would be broadly similar.

Lord Hague calls it a plan to rescue Brexit from approaching disaster.

The Guardian reports that the judge-led inquiry into the Grenfell Tower fire might have to suspend operations for a long period if prosecutors authorise corporate manslaughter charges.

The paper says the identification of Kensington and Chelsea Council as a possible defendant, along with the organisation that managed the tower block, has created the potential for conflict with the public inquiry.

Survivors and residents, it says, have expressed alarm at the prospect of the inquiry being delayed or diluted.

The Daily Mail's front page says pupils as young as 11 could have lessons in breastfeeding to make the practice more widespread.

The paper says only a tiny percentage of British mothers still breastfeed after one year.

The paper quotes the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health as saying that many women are still too embarrassed to breastfeed in cafes or public places.

It believes that educating girls - and boys - from an early age will help remove any potential stigma.

The Times reports that the Isle of Skye is debating the introduction of a tourist tax to help it cope with a massive influx of visitors.

Some local groups are said to believe that a visitor levy would do more harm than good.

But a local businessman tells the paper that Skye's attractions and single-track roads can no longer cope with cavalcades of tour coaches and motor homes.

He believes even £1 from each tourist would make a difference.
