Today’s front pages: Venezuela coup and Labour’s Brexit backdown

A round up of the headlines from UK newspapers on 1 May

A coup attempt in Venezuela dominates this morning’s front pages, several of whom feature startling images of chaos on the streets as protesters face off with an army mostly loyal to President Nicolas Maduro.

On the domestic front, the Labour NEC’s decision to stick to its “on the fence” policy of partial support for a second referendum also makes the headlines. “Confirmed: Vote Labour, Get Brexit,” blares an unimpressed The National.

The party’s reluctance to back a second vote might be partly explained on The Daily Telegraph’s front page, which suggests Theresa May is “on [the] verge of caving in” to Labour’s demands on a Brexit deal.

Take a look at the front pages of the major UK newspapers today:
