What the papers say – October 31

The so-called “Pestminster crackdown” and the US investigation into possible co-ordination between Russia and President Donald Trump’s 2016 election make the front pages on Tuesday.

The Metro reports on Leader of the Commons Andrea Leadsom telling MPs that ministers would be sacked for inappropriate behaviour, saying the public are “appalled” by the recent allegations surrounding Westminster. The Guardian, meanwhile, focuses on Washington, saying the US-Russia probe “closed in dramatically” on the president as a former Trump campaign adviser pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI about his contacts with Russians.


The i takes a similar line, reporting that the FBI was closing the net on Mr Trump’s campaign aides. It also features the revelation that some lunchtime meal deals in supermarkets and high street shops are packed with as many as 30 teaspoons of sugar.

Donald Trump’s aides again make the front page – this time in the Financial Times. It says the indictments “mark the most serious legal threat to the president” since special counsel Robert Muller was appointed in May.

The Sun leads on the “shock confession” of Michael Fallon, who admitted to an incident 15 years ago when he put his hand on radio host Julia Hartley-Brewer’s knee.
