Front pages: Storm warnings and 'rivers of blood'

Daily Telegraph front page 23/12/13
Image caption The Daily Telegraph says Lib Dem minister Vince Cable has compared David Cameron's "rhetoric on immigration" to Enoch Powell's so-called "rivers of blood speech". The business secretary has likened the PM's comments to "panics over Jewish immigrants" in the early 20th Century, it reports.
i front page 23/12/13
Image caption It's immigration for the i too, which says the coalition is "at breaking point" over the issue. It says Vince Cable has "dismissed" claims that tens of thousands of Romanians will head to Britain when restrictions are lifted in January. The front page also features Graeme Swann's decision to quit cricket.
Guardian front page 23/12/13
Image caption The immigration row is revealing "the bitter personal poison seeping into some of the coalition's key policy disputes", says the Guardian. The front page also has a first person piece from inside the European Court of Human rights - "a whipping boy for the UK right", as it describes it.
Daily Mail front page 23/12/13
Image caption Immigration too leads the Daily Mail, but it can't knock Nigella Lawson off the front page entirely. The TV cook's brother Dominic has written a strenuous defence of her in the paper in which he compares her treatment "to the burning of heretics in the Spanish Inquisition".
Daily Express front page 23/12/13
Image caption The imminent arrival of "deadly" weather leads the Daily Express. It says "a ferocious storm is set to ravage Britain today, bringing chaos to shoppers and travellers trying to get away for Christmas". The paper also pictures Strictly Come Dancing winner Abbey Clancy alongside judge Darcey Bussell.
Times front page 23/12/13
Image caption The Times says it has seen financial records which show that the mental health charity Mencap has paid out more than £60,000 to five residents at one of its care homes "after carers spent their money on hundreds of unauthorised purchases". The paper also features the immigration row on its front page.
Independent front page 23/12/13
Image caption Monday's Independent claims an exclusive about "secret use of citizenship-stripping powers" being "dramatically stepped up" by Home Secretary Theresa May. It says she is using them to remove British citizenship and "prevent the return of dual nationals who have gone to fight in Syria".
Financial Times front page 23/12/13
Image caption The Financial Times leads with news from overseas, that recently freed Russian dissident Mikhail Khodorkovsky says he will "not fight for power... but made clear he could remain an irritant to President Vladimir Putin as he vowed to campaign to free other political prisoners".
Sun front page 23/12/13
Image caption The Sun also leads with a Nigella Lawson story - and a slightly surreal one at that - claiming she "has been left devastated after Charles Saatchi won 'custody' of a £10,000 stuffed dog". Apparently, "Bulldog Narles - a mix of their first names - took pride of place in the kitchen of the couple's £15m home".
Daily Star front page 23/12/13
Image caption There's a Strictly Come Dancing story on the front page of Monday's Daily Star - about winner Abbey Clancy and footballer husband Peter Crouch - along with a warning about "festive mayhem" on the roads due to the coming "fearsome storms".

The row over immigration heats up further in Monday's papers, with several saying Vince Cable has likened comments by the prime minister to Enoch Powell's so-called "rivers of blood" speech in 1968.
