A relaxed looking Patrick Harvie is pictured smiling on the front page of Scotland on Sunday as the paper says he's preparing to play the role of power broker at Holyrood. He intends to take the SNP out of their comfort zone, hoping to derail their plans to cut air passenger duty and persuade them to raise raise income tax, the paper say.

The former SNP leader Alex Salmond wants to Tony Blair to face international criminal proceedings over Britain's involvement in the Iraq war, according to the Sunday Herald.

The Scottish Mail on Sunday says the country's police watchdog had issued a series of "damning" judgements calling into question the credibility and reliability of police officers' evidence.

The Sunday Mail carries family tributes to "angel" Jill Pirrie who died after being hit by a car being chased by police in Edinburgh last week.

"Sold Down The River" is the headline for the Sunday Post which says insurance firms are using dirty tricks to avoid paying victims of storms Desmond and Frank.

The Scottish Sun claims a "freed brothel boss" has gone on spending spree, despite claiming she cannot afford a £1m crime payback bill.
