Sunday newspapers

The Sunday papers offer a mixed news bag, with no single story hogging the front pages.

It says the Queen discussed potential implications for the monarchy in a private meeting with David Cameron.

The Sunday Mirror has a story about secret papers found at Osama bin Laden's hideout in Pakistan, suggesting one of his trusted allies, Mullah Abdul Barabar, revealed his location to US forces.

Libel action

There is a claim in the Sunday Telegraph that Twitter has handed over confidential details of four UK account holders to comply with a court ruling.

The paper says a group of councillors and one council official from South Tyneside are pursuing a libel action over comments posted on the site.

It suggests the decision may lead to a "flood" of similar requests from lawyers in cases involving allegations of libel or injunction breaches.

Twitter has not responded to the claim.


An investigation by the paper has found cigarette sales are increasing, despite consumption falling in the West.

The paper highlights what it says are the "extortionate" fees charged by banks for foreign currency and travel insurance.

Rave on

Several papers reveal that David Cameron's wife, Samantha, has been seen at an open-air rave while on holiday on the island of Ibiza.
