The Herald reports that the trade union official at the centre of the Grangemouth row is facing an investigation by the information watchdog over alleged data protection breaches.

The Scotsman says the union official has resigned from his job at the plant, leaving the Labour party facing growing pressure over its relationship with Unite, Britain's biggest union.

The Scottish Sun also writes that the union rep has quit - a day before a showdown with bosses over his conduct.

The Daily Record says a preacher who claimed to be able to provide childless couples with miracle babies has been charged with three rapes.

The Courier carries claims that councils in Tayside and the Forth Valley may have to step in to help protect vulnerable residents from the effects of flooding.

The Press and Journal writes that a ballet teacher has gone on trial accused of telling students they looked like Jews lined up waiting to be shot.

The Scottish Daily Express says more than 400,000 Scottish households are already behind with energy bills - before winter sets in and price hikes arrive.

The Scottish Daily Mail reports that power giants who are hitting customers with price rises of around 10% are only paying 1.7% more for the energy they are selling.
