Labour launches manifesto

It's Jeremy Corbyn's big day. After last week's leaks and a series of announcements, the Labour leader will set out his broader plan for the UK when the party launches its manifesto.

It's likely to include 30 hours a week of free childcare for all two to four-year olds, nationalising England's 10 water companies and surcharges on companies paying staff more than £300,000 a year. Unconfirmed reports suggest the manifesto will pledge a 45% income tax rate for earnings above £80,000.

Mr Corbyn will say he offers a "programme of hope", calling the Conservatives' campaign one of "fear". But the Conservatives argue the spending commitments are unfunded and Labour's economic ideas are "nonsensical".

Moors murderer Brady dies

It's hard to express the scale of public shock and revulsion felt over the abductions and killings of five children in the 1960s by Ian Brady and his lover Myra Hindley. Brady, who has died aged 79, reportedly never showed remorse for what became known as the Moors Murders. Terry Kilbride, brother of one of the victims, 12-year-old John Kilbride, tells the Sun newspaper: "He's dead but we will have to still live with the nightmare that he left behind."

Portrait of Picasso's lover sold

During World War Two, the French resistance rescued it from the Nazis and it's remained one of Pablo Picasso's best known portraits. Seated Woman in Blue Dress, featuring Dora Maar, one of the artist's many lovers, has sold in New York for $45m (£35m).

What the papers say

The face of Ian Brady stares out from several tabloid newspapers, with the Sun's headline saying "Monster Brady is dead" and the Mirror urging the Moors murderer to "rot in hell". Meanwhile, there are different takes on Labour's manifesto, with the Guardian saying it will "rein in excessive pay" and the Daily Mail calling it Jeremy Corbyn's "tax war on the middle class".
