Three days after David Cameron used Britain's veto at the EU summit on the eurozone debt crisis, the aftermath continues to dominate headlines.

Most focus on what the Guardian calls "the Clegg aftershock".

The Deputy Prime Minister, Nick Clegg, told the BBC's Andrew Marr he was "bitterly disappointed" by the outcome of the summit.

The Sun says the deputy prime minister has stabbed Mr Cameron in the back after initially offering his support.

Poll backing

The Financial Times says Mr Clegg has warned the prime minister not to show signs of triumphalism when he briefs MPs on the summit.

But the Independent predicts that the deputy prime minister will be left "squirming" on the front bench when Mr Cameron is cheered by his own side.

According to details of a poll in the Times, the nation's voters overwhelmingly back the UK's EU veto.

It has 57% supporting Mr Cameron's decision and only 14% opposing it.

"Britain braced for worst gales in 30 years - 100 miles per hour storms on their way" is the headline on the front page of the Daily Express.

It says strong winds, snow, sleet and torrential rain are to batter the UK.

Bean counting

The Independent hails the progress towards a new international climate change treaty as "an enormous advance".

It believes the climate change conference in Durban should see China, India and the US become legally bound to cut emissions for the first time.

The Daily Telegraph thinks it may have solved the puzzle of what happened to "the Emperor of Exmoor".

This was a stag thought to be Britain's largest wild animal, reportedly shot in Devon, but a corpse was never found.

A stuffed stag's head - reputedly of The Emperor - has now appeared on the wall of a hotel near Tiverton.

The Daily Mail warns that the price of chocolate could leap because of a worldwide shortage of cocoa beans, partly due to rising demand in China.
