After days of Libya dominating, there is a bit more more variety on the front pages of Friday's newspapers.

But while only the Guardian leads on Libya , there's still plenty of coverage on the inside pages of other papers.

Rebels in shorts and caps are pictured in the Daily Mail splashing around in the swimming pool of a luxury villa , part of a Gaddafi-owned complex.

One is bobbing about in a bright yellow plastic kayak - smiling and holding up his Kalashnikov.

Several papers also have a picture of a golf buggy abandoned in one of the tunnels under Gaddafi's compound. "He's buggied off" says the Sun.

The Daily Telegraph reports that Libya's anti-Gaddafi rebels have a secret weapon: The Boy Scouts.

It says they brave volunteers are carrying food and stretchers under fire and tending to the wounded.

Wearing British-style kit, the paper says, theirs are the last uniforms in a city without uniformed authority.

The Daily Mail says animal rights activists may be behind the wrong drugs appearing in Nurofen Plus packets.

Yesterday it emerged that there were three cases in south London of packets found to contain an anti-psychotic drug made by a different company.

The Mail says Nurofen's makers, Reckitt Benckiser, may have been targeted because it tests products on animals.

The Telegraph quotes a source saying it's "very strange" and that the switch must have happened somewhere between the factory and the shops.

The Express leads on figures revealing a 21% increase in net migration. It says David Cameron's pledge to crack down on immigration is in tatters.

According to the Mirror, the statistics show yet again that Mr Cameron's government isn't working.

The Sun says describes the figures are a searing indictment of Labour's disastrous immigration policies.

Elsewhere, the Times says it's learnt that the hunt for rioters and looters will go on for at least two years, while t he Independent leads with a warning of a surge in obesity over the coming years.
