The i and the Herald both lead with a crackdown by the UK government on Scottish "tax haven" firms.

The i says the government closed a tax loophole by enacting emergency legislation.

The Herald writes that about 30,000 Scottish firms will be forced to reveal their owners' identities following a two-year campaign by the paper.

Several papers focus on the aftermath of the Grenfell Tower blaze in London.

Under the headline "Killers in our kitchens", the Daily Mirror says fridge-freezers similar to the one that sparked the fire can burst into flames in seconds.

The Daily Star writes that the fridge-freezer at the centre of the disaster in London has been sold to 64,000 British households,.

And the Daily Telegraph reports that hospital buildings are being subjected to urgent fire safety tests over fears some may be covered in flammable cladding.

In other news, the Times reports that the Manchester suicide bomber used videos from YouTube and other websites to help to build the device that killed 22 people.

The Daily Express says UK prime minister Theresa May defied attempts to bully Britain over the rights of EU citizens living in the UK.

The National follows the same story, writing that EU leaders dismissed Mrs May's offer over EU nationals as being "below expectations".

Scotland's transport minister has promised to tackle problems on a notorious road in the Highlands - but warned that progress would not "happen overnight", according to the Press and Journal.

The Daily Record says a comic is at the centre of a police investigation into explicit messages sent to female entertainers.

And the Daily Mail leads with details of an "explosive" biography which it says "lifts the lift on the love affair" between Prince Charles and Camilla Parker Bowles.
