Newspaper review: European shocks occupy papers
Nicolas Sarkozy's defeat in the first round of the French presidential race and the fall of the Dutch government give the papers much to think about.
In the words of the Times , the German-inspired doctrine of financial rigour is spurring revolt across the single currency bloc.
The attack on David Cameron and George Osborne by Conservative backbencher Nadine Dorries is widely reported.
In the Sun's view, Ms Dorries' description of them as "two arrogant posh boys" may not be far wrong.
It says the last few weeks have shown just how divorced their priorities are from those of the paper's readers.
Pictures of Claire Squires, the woman who died while running in the London Marathon, are on many front pages.
The Daily Mail says friends believe her decision to raise money for the Samaritans was partly inspired by the memory of her brother Grant who died 10 years ago at the age of 25.
She had also run the Belfast City Marathon and climbed Mount Kilimanjaro.
Finally, the treasured football of a 16-year-old boy who lost his home in the Japanese tsunami has been found washed up 3,000 miles away in the US.
The Daily Express says the ball, with the boy's name on it, was found on an island 70 miles from Alaska.
The paper quotes the boy as saying he is "delighted" the ball has been found as he lost everything in the tsunami.
