The Daily Mail says six people were shot dead. It notes local MPs urged residents to stay calm and that they denied the incident was terror related.
Hundreds of paratroopers are being sent back to Afghanistan to help rescue Britons in the country as the Taliban surges, the Daily Telegraph says.
The paper adds that the Taliban advance gained pace on Thursday – with militants now within 100 miles of Kabul. Elsewhere, it pictures actress Una Stubbs, of Till Death Us Do Part fame, who has died aged 84.
Confirmation that UK and US troops will return to Afghanistan to hasten evacuations came as its second-largest city Kandahar was claimed by the Taliban, the Guardian says. The paper says the group has established a bridgehead about 95 miles from Kabul with the capital now “isolated and facing a perilous threat”.
“Operation Kabul” is the Metro’s headline as it reports 600 British troops will be sent to help an estimated 4,000 UK nationals and ex-Afghan staff flee. The paper quotes Defence Secretary Ben Wallace as saying the security of Britons “is our first priority”. It notes the UK withdrew its last forces just weeks ago.
The Financial Times says the United Nations has warned of a humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan. The UN estimates in late July found 270,000 people had been displaced by the conflict, the FT says. It notes that US President Joe Biden has said he does not regret his decision to withdraw troops from the country.
The UK faces its biggest test for “living with” Covid this weekend, claims the i paper, as it says 1.7m will socialise at mass events and festivals. It quotes a government science adviser as predicting that “infection will start to increase” amid close contacts at home, weddings, pubs – and big gatherings.
Meanwhile, the Daily Express says “the only way is up” for Britain’s economy following the relaxation of Covid restrictions. The paper reports that the economy grew by 4.8% from April to June – “beating the US, Germany and France”.
There’s a tongue-in-cheek take on the arrest of the UK national who worked at the British embassy in Berlin in the Daily Star. The paper describes the man, known as David S and accused of passing data to Russia, as “short, flabby, balding” and “not exactly 007 material”. “Never mind the Aston… he’s got a Ford Fiesta,” the paper adds. Its headline? “For your pies only.”
“Operation Kabul” is what the Metro calls the mission to rescue 4,000 UK nationals from the rapidly advancing Taliban in Afghanistan.
The Daily Telegraph says the UK wants the evacuation to be finished by the symbolic date of 11 September, but defence sources have stressed they hope it can be completed sooner.
This may be because, according to the Spectator, American intelligence are concerned that Kabul may fall within a month. The Guardian suggests this may happen sooner, with Afghan military resistance “collapsing with greater speed than even most pessimists had predicted”.
The Sun reports that British jihadis have joined the Taliban in Afghanistan, having travelled through Pakistan’s lawless tribal areas to reach the frontline.
A senior intelligence source has told the paper that they have intercepted phone calls of militants, one of whom had a “London accent”.
Writing in the same paper, Lord Dannatt, a retired head of the Army, urges the government to maintain support for Afghanistan. He says reversing foreign aid cuts would be a massive morale boost and show that while the US have “cut and run”, the UK can do better.
“Bloodbath” is the Daily Mirror’s headline take on the shooting in Plymouth. The paper says the attack has “sent shockwaves through the city”. One eyewitness has told the Times that the gunman “kicked down” the door of a house, before shooting a young mother and her daughter.
The Daily Mail reports that the incident – the first to involve an active shooter on the loose in Britain for 11 years – was so serious that Priti Patel, the home secretary, was given regular updates.
The i paper leads on what it calls Britain’s “biggest test” for living with Covid since the pandemic began – with 1.7m people set to join football, cricket and music festival crowds over the weekend.
Professor Graham Medley, a government scientific adviser, has warned that while infections are likely to increase – he is more concerned about social gatherings in homes, pubs and at weddings. He says that while people are “naturally socially distanced with strangers,” they tend to get close to family and friends.
‘The spy who loved tea’
Many papers have pictures of the flat of the British embassy worker, arrested on suspicion of spying for Russia in Berlin. Among the items on show include a Russian flag, soft toys and literature on Hitler.
One friend has told the Sun the suspect is “nothing like James Bond” and likes drinking a cuppa – leading to the paper to call him “the spy who loved tea”.
The Daily Mirror considers whether the number plate of his battered Ford Fiesta, “B:RU1801” could be a nod to the year Tsar Alexander the first came to power.
And finally. The Daily Star reports on Hungerford Town Council’s failed attempt to move 200 nuisance pigeons to Whitby.
The plan was hatched after shoppers complained of droppings from a railway bridge. But after the migration was rejected by residents who said they had enough problems with seagulls. Hungerford now intends to cull the birds “having exhausted all other options”.
