Newspaper headlines: ‘Smash and crab’ and cheap tests for British travellers
BBC News Staff:
“Le grand surrender” declares the Daily Mail, which suggests about 70 French trawlers retreated after two Navy gunships arrived. It says the row over Channel fishing rights had escalated further on Thursday night as “furious French skippers threatened to block UK goods from entering Calais” unless all of their boats were allowed to fish in Jersey’s waters. The paper says it is a sign that the row is far from over.”Take sprat” is the take in the Sun, which suggests that two Royal Navy warships – HMS Tamar and HMS Severn – “kept the peace” after being sent by the prime minister.The Daily Star features a picture of Officer Crabtree – a character from British wartime sitcom Allo Allo! – alongside its headline: “Good moaning, we’ve sent them packing with their tails between their logs…”Holidaymakers will be able to save money on trips abroad, reports the i newspaper, after travel firms started offering Covid testing kits at cut-price rates. It says the move comes ahead of the PM’s announcement later about which foreign destinations will be on the UK’s “green list” for quarantine-free travel.Portugal, Malta and Gibraltar are expected to be on the UK’s “green” list of destinations which do not require quarantine for returning tourists, according to the Daily Mirror.
However, the paper claims that 70% of Brits back making arrivals from anywhere isolate in hotels over fears of Covid variants coming in.The prime minister will announce on Monday that secondary school children will no longer have to wear masks in lessons, according to the Daily Telegraph. The paper says it has been told by several senior Whitehall sources about the change in guidance, in a move which it says defies trade union pressure.The Bank of England forecasting that the UK economy will enjoy its fastest growth in more than 70 years this year is the main story in the Financial Times. The paper says the strong economic recovery from the pandemic will come on the back of higher consumer spending but it adds that inflation will remain under control.”
“That’s what you call a bounce back” is the Daily Express’ reaction to the forecast of economic growth this year. The paper claims that the boom, spurred on by the vaccine rollout, will trigger the UK’s fastest growth since World War Two.
The Bank of England’s prediction is the focus for the Times, which also carries a story on its front page claiming that all under-40s will be offered an alternative to the AstraZeneca vaccine. It says new “precautionary” guidance will be issued on Friday advising that those in their 30s should be offered other jabs because of a possible link between AstraZeneca and a rare type of blood clot.
And the Guardian leads on the results of a four-year inquiry which has found that spending on the NHS, social care and public health needs to rise by £102bn in a decade to improve the country’s health. Experts from the London School of Economics and the Lancet medical journal – who carried out the inquiry – said the extra cash could be funded by big tax rises.
The Daily Record says the outcome of the Holyrood election is on a “knife edge”, with an analysis of polls suggesting the SNP could miss out on a majority by just one seat.
The front page of the National, which backs an independent Scotland, pictures a smiling Nicola Sturgeon leaving a polling station. It says: “The votes are in. Now we wait to find out if it’s full steam ahead for indyref2.”
The New Statesman’s Scotland editor, Chris Deerin, explains that falling short of an outright victory would be dangerous for Nicola Sturgeon – as it would embolden her enemies – both outside, and within, the SNP.

The Times reports that all under-40s will be offered an alternative to the AstraZeneca Covid jab, because of concerns about rare blood clots.
It says there are no new safety fears, but that the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI), which advises the government on vaccines, will issue the new “precautionary advice” on Friday.
The Independent online newspaper says the updated recommendation comes after the medicines regulator, the MHRA, reported new figures on clots last week.
The Daily Telegraph understands that an alternative jab will be offered only if one is available, and if it doesn’t affect the wider supply.
The government says the position of the MHRA and the JCVI continues to be that the benefits of the AstraZeneca vaccine outweigh the risks for the vast majority of adults.
“Take Sprat” is the main headline on the Sun, as it reports that the Royal Navy sent “furious French fishermen packing” from the waters around Jersey on Thursday.
But the Daily Mail says the row over post-Brexit fishing rights is far from over, with the fishermen now threatening to blockade Calais.
For the Daily Star, the “ruckus in Jersey” was as farcical as an episode of Dad’s Army or ‘Allo ‘Allo.
The Guardian leads on the results of a four-year inquiry which has found that spending on the NHS, social care and public health needs to rise by £102bn in a decade to improve Britain’s health.
The experts from the London School of Economics and the Lancet medical journal, who carried out the research, said the extra funding could come from rises in income tax, national insurance and VAT.
The Daily Telegraph understands that Boris Johnson will announce on Monday that secondary school children in England will no longer have to wear masks in lessons from 17 May.
He has been under pressure from teaching unions to extend their use in classrooms because of concerns about infection rates.
In its leader column, the paper predicts that the unions will “kick up a fuss”,and it questions why they can’t just embrace the news as an opportunity to return to normal.
And the Daily Mirror reports on a couple from Guernsey who are trying to crack coded World War Two messages with the help of their neighbour, who just happens to have been a Bletchley Park code breaker.
John and Val Campbell discovered the note under their floorboards, with a cache of items believed to have belonged to a Nazi soldier.
The Times quotes their neighbour, 95-year-old Marj Dodsworth, as saying that without a code-breaking machine there wasn’t a “cat’s chance” of her being able to crack it.
