The Daily Mail claims some credit for the resignation of David Cameron's "back-to-work tsar" Emma Harrison.

It says she stood down as an adviser on turning around the lives of Britain's most troubled families after two weeks of damning revelations in the paper.

The Mail describes her departure as an "embarrassment" for the prime minister.

The Times says since 2005 the government has begun nine fraud inquiries into her company A4e, which earned £180m from state contracts last year.

'Not over'

The Guardian says details of Charlotte Church's out-of-court phone-hacking settlement with News International will be announced in court on Monday.

The Independent believes her settlement is likely to amount to half-a-million pounds, including legal costs.

But the paper says News International faces a second wave of cases starting next week.

A lawyer acting for the claimants tells the paper: "They think it's all over - but it isn't."

Bar disturbance

The Daily Telegraph continues its investigation into abortions alleged to have been carried out on the grounds of the gender of the unborn child.

Writing in the paper, Health Secretary Andrew Lansley describes the practice as "morally repugnant" and illegal.

The House of Commons bar disturbance which led to assault charges against MP Eric Joyce leads several papers.

The Daily Mirror gives a blow by blow account and says it turned Parliament into the "Wild Westminster".

Twitter plea

The Daily Star says armed guards have been posted at the cemetery in New Jersey where Whitney Houston is buried.

There are fears grave robbers might try to steal the expensive jewellery and clothes she was buried in, it says.

Finally, the Daily Mail reports that the co-founder of Twitter has urged its 500 million users to log off and go and do something else instead.

Creative director Christopher Stone told a conference in Montreal that spending hours on it was "unhealthy".

The Mail reminds its readers that several celebrities have, at times, taken tweeting to extremes.

These include Stephen Fry who, it says, once used the site to post a photograph of himself stuck in a lift.
