Newspaper headlines: Bank holiday terror lockdown

Numerous newspapers have photographs of two armed police officers being deployed on Scarborough beach on Friday following the Manchester attack.

With a picture of donkeys giving children rides in the background, the Daily Mirror says the message from the assistant commissioner of the Metropolitan Police, Mark Rowley, was: "Go out and enjoy yourselves" this bank holiday.

Under the headline "Bank Holiday Ring of Steel", the Daily Mail reports security has been ramped up at 1,300 events. The paper says security at the FA Cup Final, the Premiership rugby final and the Hay literary Festival has been dramatically reviewed. It reports police marksmen will also be sent to theme parks, beaches and resorts.

Elsewhere, the Times says intelligence officers have identified 23,000 jihadist extremists living in the UK as potential attackers.

About 3,000 are judged to pose a threat or are under investigation while the rest are considered a "residual risk". The paper says the two terrorists who have struck in Britain this year - Salman Abedi, the Manchester bomber, and Khalid Masood, the Westminster killer - were in a "pool of interest" and not subject to any surveillance.

According to the Daily Telegraph, police believe the Manchester suicide bomber used student loans and benefits to bankroll the terror plot.

It says Abedi is understood to have received thousands of pounds in state funding in the run-up to Monday's attack, even while he was overseas receiving bomb-making training.

The Daily Express reports that the security forces have "smashed open" the Manchester terror network, and made significant progress to prevent a feared second attack.

Heart of the campaign

The Daily Telegraph says Theresa May has accused Jeremy Corbyn of providing an "excuse for terrorism" in her strongest attack on the Labour leader to date.

It claims the prime minister said Mr Corbyn had suggested that the Manchester suicide bombing was "our own fault" by linking terrorism to British foreign policy.

The paper suggests her attack comes as senior Tories have expressed concern that her campaign message of "strong and stable" leadership is not resonating with voters.

The Guardian says that Mrs May is attempting to put the bombing at the heart of the election campaign but quotes Mr Corbyn's spokesman accusing her of wrongly interpreting the Labour leader's remarks.

Meanwhile, the Financial Times says that "naysayers" have been forced to rethink the chances of Jeremy Corbyn winning the general election.

The paper says Mr Corbyn's status as a rank outsider may have worked to his advantage - with little scrutiny of his background and beliefs - plus, what one Labour official described as, "the absolute implosion" of the Tories. But it says his "odds of victory are still poor".

Wenger v Abramovich

The Sun focuses on the FA Cup Final, calling it a battle between football's most influential immigrants.

It describes the match between Arsene Wenger's Arsenal and Roman Abramovich's Chelsea as a "battle for football's soul" and asks if the game is about artistry or money.

The paper says that since Mr Abramovich bought Chelsea in 2003, the idea of the all-powerful manager who runs the club from top to bottom has been so eroded so that Wenger is the last man standing. The paper believes that defeat could finish him off.

Finally, under the headline "live and let live", the Guardian says sales in vegan foods have soared with Tesco reporting that demand for vegetarian and vegan ready meals and snacks have increased by 40% in the last year.

The paper says more of us will be slapping an avocado and peanut burger on our barbecue this weekend and joining the likes of Bill Clinton, Brad Pitt, Miley Cyrus and Jeremy Corbyn in going meat free.
