Scottish papers: 'Teario' as May is 'broken by Brexit'

Image caption There's only one story on the front of Scotland's papers this Saturday and that is Theresa May's announced departure. The Scotsman sums it up with the headline "It all ends in tears" as it pictures an emotional Mrs May outside 10 Downing Street as she made her resignation speech.

Image caption The National also has "no sympathy" for the end of Theresa May's leadership, commenting on her emotional speech and asking "where were the tears for Windrush, Grenfell and Universal Credit?"
Image caption The Scottish Sun calls "May's own Brexit" a "sob story", telling Scotland it is time to start crying because "here comes BoJo".
Image caption The Times also runs with an emotional photograph of the outgoing PM, and says Boris Johnson is threatening a no-deal Brexit while Jeremy Corbyn is calling for a general election.
Image caption It's a "crying shame" on the front of the Scottish Daily Mail as they blow up Theresa May's memorable moment to the full page. The paper says little more outside of the 15-page special edition.
