On the day Scotland would have become independent had voters chosen "Yes" in 2014, The Scotsman claims that Independence Day would have left a "£10bn black hole".

The Times Scotland edition reports that "blunders" by the Belgian authorities allowed one of the suicide bombers that attacked the city on Tuesday to slip through the net.

The Herald says that an inquiry into historical child abuse in Scotland will be the "costliest in history".

The Scottish Daily Mail reports on a "food con that can cost lives".

The Scottish Sun reports on the latest developments in the Paige Doherty murder investigation.

The National imagines an "alternate universe" where Scotland had voted "Yes".

And the Press and Journal has a report on a "diet scammer".
