Scotland's papers: London Bridge killer was TV jihadi

The identities of two of the London Bridge killers dominate the front pages of Scotland's newspapers.

The Scotsman leads with the police naming two of the three perpetrators behind the weekend's terrorist attack in London, amid reports that one of the men responsible was married to a woman from Scotland.

The Herald says one of the two named terrorists was already known to police and security services.

The Daily Record reports that one of the attackers starred in Channel 4 documentary 'The Jihadis Next Door' waving an Isis-style flag while two members of the public warned police about his extremism.

The Scottish edition of the Daily Telegraph also writes that the ringleader of the London Bridge terror attack was so open about his extremist views that he appeared in a fly-on-the-wall documentary.

According to the Scottish Daily Mail, one of the attackers worked on the London Underground even though he had appeared in an extremist documentary while another one kissed his baby goodbye before carrying out the attacks.

The Scottish Sun leads with a story that London Bridge killer Khuram Butt slipped through the security net despite being watched by MI5 - and 1.2 million TV viewers.

The Scottish Daily Express says Theresa May yesterday has urged voters to back her to ensure Britain is kept safe from terror.

The Times Scotland claims that one of the London Bridge attackers was free to carry out the atrocity despite working for a man accused of helping to train the ringleader of the July 7 bombing in 2005.

The i newspaper carries photographs of the first victims of the London Bridge attack, along with an inspirational message from family who lost an "exceptional young man".

The Daily Star says "twisted" Khuram Butt - who appeared in a TV documentary about Jihadis - was the ringleader of the London Bridge terror gang.

The National leads with a senior SNP candidate asking who is more likely to work with the Labour leader.

The Press and Journal reports on the funeral of Manchester bombing victim Eilidh Macleod, saying the island of Barra came to a standstill as she was laid to rest.

Alongside a photo of the Barra funeral procession, The Courier leads with claims that the CCTV security system covering Tayside has been described as "outdated" and "no longer fit for purpose".
