Several papers lead on Hurricane Irma.

The i illustrates the destruction in the Caribbean, with pictures of wrecked buildings and trees bent and torn from their roots.

It says the storm appears increasingly likely to rip into heavily populated southern Florida this weekend.

The Daily Mirror focuses on relief efforts - its headline talks of the "navy's dash to save 185mph storm Brits".

Royal Navy ships, it says, were last night dashing to the Caribbean to help rescue Brits stranded by the killer storm.

A picture on the front of the Daily Express shows cars in St Martin, smashed about like toys.

According to the Financial Times, the prime minister's Brexit strategy has suffered a double blow.

It cites reported comments of European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, questioning the "stability" and "accountability" of Brexit Secretary David Davis, and a letter signed by 35 Eurosceptic Tory MPs pushing for a hard Brexit.

The lead in the Times says pro-Remain Tory MPs want Theresa May to sack minister Steve Baker and Treasury aide Suella Fernandes, who they claim supported the letter.

The Daily Mail hits back at Mr Juncker and chief EU negotiator Michel Barnier for their attacks on Mr Davis.

"Don't treat us with contempt," warns the main headline.

Their "arrogance", the paper says, will only "harden the resolve of the majority who voted for Brexit".

The Guardian leads on the report by Labour MP David Lammy, commissioned by Downing Street, in which he concludes that black and minority ethnic (BAME) people continue to face bias and overt discrimination in the criminal justice system.

It highlights his call for prosecutions against some BAME suspects to be deferred or dropped.

The Daily Telegraph believes "the Lammy review has good intentions" but the paper foresees complications.

It advises the government to proceed with caution - and on the principle that our police and courts exist primarily to uphold law and order.

The Daily Mail sums up the report's findings with the headline: "Criminals could side-step courts... by agreeing to therapy instead".

Trips made by Northern Ireland's Democratic Unionist Party MP Ian Paisley come under scrutiny in the Telegraph.

The paper alleges that he accepted holidays worth £100,000 from the government of Sri Lanka - and that he is now helping the country to secure a post-Brexit trade deal.

The paper says he failed to record them as gifts in the MPs' register of interests.

It says he declined this week to answer any questions about the accusations.

The Guardian has an excoriating editorial on Burmese leader Aung San Suu Kyi.

Her long silence, it says, on the plight of the Rohingya in Myanmar has been shameful.

With tens of thousands now fleeing atrocities in Rakhine state, the Nobel prize winner's moral sanctity lies in tatters.

"Seldom has a reputation fallen so fast," says the Times.

Nearly all the front pages have a picture of a certain four-year-old dressed smartly for his first day at school - or "his royal shyness" as the Mirror and the Mail label Prince George.

He is certainly looking a bit diffident in their pictures.

"Mum, I'm glum," says the Sun, pointing out that the Duchess of Cambridge was unable to go with him because of morning sickness.
