Today’s front pages: Notre Dame fire, Boeing reshuffle and EU elections

A round up of the headlines from UK and international newspapers on 17 April

The Notre Dame fire was a feature on almost all UK front pages this morning, as the world continues to digest the horror of the blaze and the mammoth prospect of rebuilding the 850-year-old cathedral

The Times led on the cathedral’s narrow escape from destruction, while Metro focussed on the heroics of city firefighters, proclaiming: “They saved Notre Dame”.

Domestic issues making the front pages include Home Secretary Sajid Javid’s plans to make it easier for ex-cons to find work, the prospect of a top-level reshuffle at Boeing and experts warning that Theresa May will not have time to pass a Brexit deal before next month’s European Parliament elections.

Unsurprisingly, the Notre Dame fire also continued to dominate French front pages. Le Monde led its 14-page special on the inferno with the headline “Our Lady, our history”, while left-wing daily Liberation opted for a fitting pun: “Notre Drame” (our tragedy).
