Several newspapers call for Libya's new rulers to change their decision not to give up the man suspected of killing Pc Yvonne Fletcher in 1984.

The Daily Mirror says Foreign Secretary William Hague has played down the "highly embarrassing rebuff".

The Sun urges the new regime to "do what is right" and "prove to the world that a new day really has dawned".

Refusing to extradite him "would be a slap in the face" for Britain, the Daily Mail says .

'Hurricane? What hurricane'

Many papers play with their headlines on Hurricane Irene, which swept through New York on Saturday.

Under the headline "The Big Puddle" the Mirror says the "Big Apple got a big ducking" .

The Daily Telegraph asks "Hurricane? What Hurricane" above a photo of New Yorkers playing hockey in the rain.

The Sun and Mail run with "Phew York", while the Guardian has "Much ado about Irene, but Manhattan dodges the meteorological bullet".

'Buzz off' tabards

There is outrage at a new uniform for nurses giving medicines to patients - to be introduced across the UK.

Tabards emblazoned with the words "Do not disturb - drug round in progress" are designed to deter patients and others from interrupting nurses.

The Mail says the tabards reflect "everything that's wrong about modern nursing" .

Christina Odone, in the Telegraph, says the "buzz off" tabards show nursing is now about cases rather than patients.

False-start disappointment

Sprinter Usain Bolt's false start in the World Championship 100m final left fans disappointed and Bolt racked with disbelief, the Guardian says .

In the Independent, Simon Turnbull says Bolt was a "hapless victim" of the athletics authority.

The Daily Express says the IAAF will not change its new rule that one false start leads to disqualification despite Bolt "being a spectacular casualty".

But the Telegraph's Ian Chadband writes that IAAF chiefs will amend the rule .
