Indyref2 and Europe feature on several of the front pages of Scotland's Sunday papers.

Scotland on Sunday says Nicola Sturgeon is set to defy calls to abandon a second independence referendum and will try to push the issue into the background as she attempts the most delicate balancing act of her career.

The Sunday Mail writes that the first minister is set to put Indyref2 on hold and focus on delivering a "soft" Brexit.

The Sunday Herald front page presents "three leaders, three visions on Scotland's future in Europe". The headline trails columns inside the paper by Nicola Sturgeon, Jeremy Corbyn and Ruth Davidson.

MPs and peers have been warned that they face blackmail threats after hackers launched a "brute force attack" on the parliamentary computer system, according to the Sunday Times.

The Sunday Telegraph covers the same story, writing that emails of politicians and constituents could be leaked as hackers try to break into accounts.

The Sunday Post says a massive increase in hospital consultant vacancies has seen Scottish health chiefs spend £100m hiring locums from private agencies.

Prince Harry considered quitting his Royal role but stayed on for the Queen, according to the Mail on Sunday.

And the Sun on Sunday reports that drugs mule Melissa Reid is working with Citizens Advice.
