The fall-out of Vince Cable's comments to undercover reporters that he had declared war on Rupert Murdoch continues to interest the papers.

The Daily Mail says Culture Secretary Jeremy Hunt - who will now rule on Mr Murdoch's bid to take full control of BskyB - is himself compromised.

Bondage

Several papers report new details surrounding the death of MI6 officer Gareth Williams, who was found padlocked in a holdall in his flat.

The Sun says he had £15,000 of designer women's dresses and shoes - all unworn in his home.

Putin's pin-up

The Times reports that former Russian spy turned pin-up Anna Chapman has launched a political career in her homeland after being booted out of the US in June.

The Sun speculates that "Crossbow Cannibal" Stephen Griffiths - who admitted killing three women - may have killed as many as 14.

Season's eatings

There was a Christmas theme to several prominently placed stories and photos.

The Sun tells us Raymond Briggs - the creator of popular children's character the Snowman - hates Christmas.

And the Guardian is among the papers to publish the image of a tree outside a home in Yeovil which has been pruned to resemble a giant Christmas pudding.
