Several of Scotland's papers lead with the renewed campaign drive for independence launched by Nicola Sturgeon on Friday. The Herald says it is a "battle for hearts and minds". The National also goes on the campaign for another referendum on Scottish independence.

The story is also the lead on the front page of the Scottish Daily Mail , under the headline: "Which bit of no don't you get?".

The Scottish Daily Express says Sturgeon's new drive for independence has been hit by a privacy row.

The Scottish edition of the Daily Telegraph says Sturgeon has delayed making a decision on whether to call a second independence referendum for at least three months to give independence campaigners more time to drive up public support.

A story about a father who "stalked his own daughter" leads the Daily Record.
