Today’s front pages: deportation danger and air quality woes

A round-up of the headlines from UK newspapers on 10 May

It’s very much a mixed bag on the front pages this morning in the aftermath of this week’s royal baby takeover. The Guardian leads with the news that the Home Office’s deportation policy is under scrutiny once more, following the newspaper’s revelation that at least five people have been murdered after being deported from the UK to Jamaica. The killings will “increase the pressure on the Home Office to justify the resumption of deportation charter flights to the country”, The Guardian says.

Meanwhile, the Daily Mail reports the stinging rebuke of the Prince of Wales by the Independent Inquiry into Child Sexual Abuse over his backing of disgraced former bishop Peter Ball. The report into the allegations against Ball found that Prince Charles was “misguided” in giving the bishop his backing in the mid-1990s.

Elsewhere, The Times goes big on its new campaign on air quality, with claims that government ministers are “ignoring medical advice” over the issue from the country’s leading doctors. The paper reports that new research from the Royal College of Physicians reveals every person in the UK breathes in the “equivalent of a daily cigarette” in dirty air.

On the world stage, The New York Times’ international edition looks at the increasingly problematic issue of the young families of former Islamic State members. The paper says that while many of the children were “barely of school age when their parents took them to the caliphate”, some have received military training and could pose a risk if they return to their home countries.
