The Daily Telegraph, the Guardian, the Independent and the Daily Mirror still lead with the phone-hacking scandal.

The Daily Telegraph says News International has bowed to pressure and lifted a gagging order on its lawyers.

The Guardian says David Cameron's hopes of putting a lid on the affair are floundering after conceding he had talked to Murdoch executives about the BSkyB bid.

The Independent asks: "What did PM tell Murdoch about the BSkyB takeover?"

'Get a grip'

The Times and the Financial Times focus on the eurozone crisis.

According to the Times, Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg has made a series of phone calls to EU leaders.

He has urged them to reach a consensus at the summit in Brussels on Thursday, underlining the depth of Britain's concern about the situation, it says.

And in an interview for the Financial Times, Chancellor George Osborne urges eurozone leaders to "get a grip" on the crisis.

Jellyfish invasion

It seems that motorists are turning their backs on electric cars.

The Daily Telegraph reports only 215 of them were bought over the past three months, under a government scheme that offers subsidies of up to £5,000 each.

There is a warning that shoals of poisonous jellyfish are "invading" coastal waters around Britain.

The Daily Express says the appearance of thousands of the creatures has turned some stretches of water into "jellyfish soup".

Tough job

Here's a job description the Daily Mail says would deter even the toughest applicant: work more than 70 hours a week with no holidays or pay.

That is what a survey says working mothers put into raising families.

The Daily Express says a typical mother spends more than 10 hours a day cleaning up after the children, helping with homework and putting them to bed.

That makes her working week longer than that of a junior doctor and worth a salary of £37,000 a year, it says.
