There are many stories from Norway of how teenagers managed to evade the gunman on the island of Utoeya.

A 17-year-old tells the Sunday People how she played dead for an hour as the killer opened fire all around her.

In the Mail on Sunday, a Red Cross worker speaks of six friends who split up - "all those who went left died, those who went right lived".

The Sunday Telegraph describes how people headed to the island in small boats to save children.

Bomb diversion

The Independent on Sunday reports on the problems of the Norwegian police in responding to the shootings on Utoeya.

This was because they were already dealing with the bomb attack in Oslo - it was an hour and a half before an armed unit could reach the island.

Knut Olav Amas, the culture editor at Norway's leading newspaper Aftenposten, recounts his experience of the bombing in the Observer.

The blast near his office "was the sound of Norway losing its innocence".

Drink and drugs

There is much reflection on the death of singer Amy Winehouse, aged 27.

A post-mortem examination had yet to be carried out, but the Sunday Mirror cites a "police source" as putting her death down to a drink and drugs binge.

The Sunday Express speaks of internet speculation that she had been drinking heavily in recent weeks.

The Observer recalls an interview in 2008 in which her mother Janis spoke of the likelihood that her daughter would die as a result of her addictions.

Royal yacht

Ministers are said to be considering Army officers who have served in Afghanistan to run police forces.

According to the Sunday Times, they could be fast-tracked into high-ranking jobs to try to improve standards.

The Mail on Sunday reports that the loss of the royal yacht Britannia need not dampen jubilee celebrations.

The paper has learned that the Queen has been offered the use of the super-yacht owned by National Car Parks tycoon Sir Donald Gosling.
