The Herald leads with a poll which says campaigners who want to keep Britain in the EU have kept their lead over the Leave campaign, but says the result is still too close to call.

The Times says stock markets and sterling soared yesterday as traders "placed heavy bets" on Britain remaining in the EU.

The National leads with politicians paying tribute to MP Jo Cox after she was killed in her West Yorkshire constituency.

The Scotsman says rail commuters across Scotland have been warned of travel "chaos" with the first of a series of planned strikes getting under way. It also carries a warning from First Minister Nicola Sturgeon that the NHS and workers' rights "are at risk from Brexit".

The rail strike dominates the front page of the Scottish Daily Mail, while Sir Cliff Richard speaks about his "two years of hell" as he was the subject of a police investigation.

The Scottish Sun says Andy Murray's grandfather was sent "vicious hate mail" attacking the tennis star.

Harry Potter author JK Rowling tells the Daily Record why she believes there is strength in European unity. The paper leads with the body of a missing Scot being found in a morgue in Thailand.

The Scottish Daily Express also focuses on the EU referendum, by claiming that remaining in the EU will be "catastrophic" for pensions.
