Sunday Telegraph front page 29/12/13
Image caption Every paper splashes on a different story on Sunday. The Sunday Telegraph says "hundreds of pregnant, foreign women are flying to Britain just days before they give birth to receive free care on the NHS". Staff at one London hospital, the paper says, refer to the flow of women from west Africa as the "Lagos Shuttle".
Mail on Sunday front page 29/12/13
Image caption There is another immigration-related story in the Mail on Sunday, which says it has uncovered "a secret report" that predicts "Bulgarians and Romanians will flock to Britain in far greater numbers than forecast as our economy races ahead of the rest of Europe". It warns "community tensions could rise" due to the influx.
Observer front page 29/12/13
Image caption The Observer leads with a "bombshell analysis" which it says shows "more than a million homeowners" will be at risk of defaulting on their mortgages "in the wake of even a small rise in interest rates". The paper's main image is of its reporter on board MV Akademik Shokalskiy, which is stuck in the Antarctic.
Independent on Sunday front page 29/12/13
Image caption Every woman who has breast implant surgery will have the procedure recorded on a national register, the Independent on Sunday says. The aim of the register is "to help prevent a repeat of the cosmetic surgery scandal which affected tens of thousands in the UK and 400,000 worldwide".
Sunday Times front page 29/12/13
Image caption According to the Sunday Times, senior Tories fear Alex Salmond "could defy the odds and pull off a shock victory" in the Scottish independence referendum "as the campaign to save the union founders". Among those worried are London Mayor Boris Johnson and former Scottish Secretary Lord Forsyth, it says.
Sunday Express front page 29/12/13
Image caption The Daily Express front page is extremely critical of the handling of the weather problems of recent days. It feels "the government's poor response to the storm chaos exposed alarming gaps in emergency planning". The paper says "no help came" when a heavily pregnant woman was trapped in her home.
Sunday People front page 29/12/13
Image caption The Sunday People says it can reveal that TV star Ant McPartlin lost his 29-year-old sister-in-law to ovarian cancer on Christmas Eve. The paper also says Chancellor George Osborne has gone on holiday to Venice "to enjoy la dolce vita... as thousands of us struggled with deluges and no electricity".
Daily Star Sunday front page 29/12/13
Image caption The Daily Star Sunday says Simon Cowell "is poised to marry his pregnant fiancee Lauren Silverman 'imminently' - and could even tie the knot today". It adds: "Rumours are rife he will wed Lauren in Barbados."

No two papers leads with the same story on Sunday, with front page topics ranging from new breast implant regulations to Scottish independence.
