Today’s front pages: Doris Day, wealth inequality and Jeremy Kyle

A round up of the headlines from UK newspapers on 14 May

Several of this morning’s front pages pay tribute to screen star Doris Day, who has died at the age of 97.

The Guardian leads on a warning by Nobel prize-winning economist Sir Angus Deaton that the UK’s growing wealth inequality could soon put the country on a similar footing to the US as one of the least equal countries in the world.

Meanwhile, the Financial Times and City AM give their front pages to what the latter calls “Red Mist” - the slide in global stock markets as the tariff feud between China and the US flares anew.

From economics to politics, The Times leads on mounting pressure on Theresa May, as senior Tories tell the PM that compromise with Labour on Brexit will risk a schism in the party, while Metro focuses instead on the suspension of the Jeremy Kyle Show on ITV after the suicide of a guest.
