The cabinet reshuffle is the lead for the Daily Telegraph, the Guardian and the i.

The Guardian describes the reshuffle as a new year reboot for Theresa May and an assertion of authority that was impossible in the immediate aftermath of the loss of her Commons majority.

According to the Daily Telegraph, Mrs May is to install a "cabinet minister for no deal" in the Brexit department - alongside Brexit Secretary David Davis - as part of the changes.

It says the appointment will be seen as an attempt by the prime minister to show her EU counterparts and Brexiteers that Britain is serious about leaving the EU without a deal if talks fail.

The Daily Mirror takes the prime minister to task over her response to the winter.

In her BBC interview with Andrew Marr on Sunday, she defended the way the NHS had coped with the pressures, but admitted that "nothing's perfect" and more needed to be done.

The paper accuses Mrs May of "shrugging off" the problems and showing "an arrogant lack of concern".

It reports that a one-year-old baby has had her heart operation called off five times.

Cherry picking

For its main lead, the Financial Times reports that Britain is pushing to remain under EU regulation for medicines after Brexit.

The paper says it is the latest sign that ministers want to stay close to Europe in some sectors, despite an EU warning that the UK cannot "cherry pick" parts of the single market.

It says it has been told by three senior government figures that the UK hopes to be regulated by the European Medicines Agency.

The chemicals and aviation industries have already said they want to continue to be regulated by EU agencies, it adds.

Carrie Gracie's resignation as the BBC's China editor is the main story for the Times - as well as being reported on the front of the Daily Telegraph, the i and the Sun.

The paper says her decision reflects the depth of anger felt across the corporation over pay inequality.

Buzzfeed News - which published her open letter to licence fee payers on Sunday night - describes it as explosive.

According to the website, it was shared with dozens of people ahead of its planned release.

Advert 'explosion'

The Daily Mail says campaigners have warned that the explosion of betting adverts during televised football matches risks hooking children on gambling.

According to the paper, all 26 fixtures screened live over the Christmas holidays had at least five commercials for betting firms.

'Legroom wars'

There is good news for air travellers who dread the moment when - just as the seat belt signs are switched off - the passenger in front puts their seat right back, encroaching on their space.

Several papers report that British Airways is introducing a fleet of planes that do not have reclining seats in economy class.

The Daily Telegraph says it is understood the new planes will be used for flights of up to four hours, as the airline seeks to tackle the so-called "legroom wars".

The Daily Mail says it could help end the "seat rage" that spreads through a cabin when passengers roll their seat back into the face of those behind.

It quotes a BA spokesman as saying the new seats will be set to a gentle recline to ensure everyone enjoys a comfortable journey.
