For many papers, the main story is the tragic decision of the parents of Charlie Gard to end his life support.

"Sleep tight our beautiful little boy," says the Daily Mail.

For the i newspaper, it is: "Goodbye, our little warrior."

"We're so sorry we couldn't save you," is the headline in the Sun.

"Time's run out for our brave warrior," is the take of the Daily Mirror.

The papers are full of praise for the bravery of Chris Gard and Connie Yates.

The Sun believes they "fought with limitless love and awe-inspiring determination".

The Mirror says they acted with "great dignity".

For the Daily Telegraph, their acceptance "that the time has come to let Charlie go" is a "courageous and heartbreaking decision. It is the right one".

The Mail says the question now is whether 11-month-old Charlie will be allowed to go home to die, an issue which has yet to be settled.

It says the High Court judge could be asked to make another ruling on that matter if talks between the parents and Great Ormond Street Hospital fail to resolve it.

The Guardian leads with the Bank of England's warning about rising levels of personal debt - and its threat of "fresh action against reckless lending".

The paper points out that the intervention comes a fortnight before the 10th anniversary of the beginnings of the financial crisis - and describes it as a "ratcheting up of Threadneedle Street's rhetoric" about the possibility of a repeat of the crash that devastated the economy in 2007.

A special report in the i newspaper suggests the identities of 11 million British people are being traded on the dark web.

Vast amounts of confidential data - including online passwords - are being offered for sale to criminals.

It says particular areas are being targeted, with Cardiff, Leicester and Nottingham featuring prominently.

The fraudsters then take months to build a full profile of each victim, with the aim of obtaining their banking details.

The Daily Star reports that Ian Brady's body is still lying in a mortuary, two months after the Moors Murderer's death.

The paper says the bodies of Brady and the Manchester bomber Salman Abedi have been "abandoned" in the secret location, because undertakers are unwilling to handle their funeral arrangements.

The Police and Crime Commissioner for North Wales is said by the Times to have been accused of abusing his position because his force stopped sending officers to deal with protesters at a fracking site in Lancashire after he complained.

Arfon Jones, who formerly campaigned against fracking, said his opposition was only one factor in the decision.

North Wales Police insisted it was down to the "high demands" on the force.

The Sun reveals how a golf fan helped Jordan Spieth win The Open - when the player's ball bounced off his head and avoided landing in the long grass at the 13th hole.

A fellow spectator tells the paper Spieth shook the man's hand and apologised.

It says the sportsman admitted later that he "felt like he'd got away with murder".
