Today's newspaper front pages

The Daily Mail leads on the news that ministers are considering giving everyone who tests positive for Covid in England £500, describing the plan, to encourage self-isolation, as a “Covid Cashpoint”. The Daily Telegraph says the scheme could cost £453m a week.

The Times covers the flooding across north-west England and Wales with an image of a woman knee deep in water in a room of her Cheshire home. “Floody hell,” says Metro, summing up the feelings of the affected communities.

The Daily Star features a “cut-out-and-keep” image of Education Secretary Gavin Williamson over the headline “Sorry for being clueless”. The minister has admitted he is “not able to exactly say” when pupils would go back to school in England.
