Tomorrow's front pages,
starting with The Financial Times,
which reports that the Brexit
negotiations could hit choppy waters
over the UK's demand to vet new EU
laws during the transition period.
The i has an investigation
into the extent of knife crime
in British schools.
Theresa May's hold on power is under
threat, according to The Metro,
amid speculation of
a leadership contest.

The Daily Mirror details the number
of babies it says die in the UK
as a result of sleeping
with their parents.
The Guardian reports that hundreds
of thousands of young adults
are renting properties that
are deemed hazardous.
The Daily Mail has details
of a study which has found that two
in three teenagers think TV channels
show too many betting adverts.

are being particularly vocal. It is
only four weeks ago that the Prime
Minister returned from the EU
summit, having struck a deal that
sufficient progress had been made to
move onto the second part of the
talks. With the exception of a
couple of voices in the backbench
she was hailed a hero, supposedly
struck a brilliant deal. To coin a
phrase used by the Prime Minister,
nothing has changed. The deal hasn't

MPs have woken up to exactly what
