The Windrush story is on the front of six papers, with the coverage making uncomfortable reading for the government.

Under particular scrutiny is the Home Office decision to destroy thousands of landing cards from the 1950s and 60s, which might have helped those who've come from the Caribbean and are wrongly threatened with deportation.

The Daily Mail calls this "the new betrayal".

Ministers play down the importance of the documents, saying they didn't provide "reliable evidence" of someone's status - but this is contradicted in the Guardian, which also leads with the story.

It hears from a former Home Office employee who says the records were "a vital resource for case workers".

A number of columnists blame Home Secretary Amber Rudd for the treatment of the Windrush citizens.

Peter Oborne in the Daily Mail was angered by what he sees as her attempt to criticise civil servants - saying it's a cardinal rule of government that you never attack them because they don't make policy and cannot answer back.

In a similar vein, Damian Thompson in the Sun thinks Ms Rudd sounded like the lady of a country house blaming her butler for forgetting to decant the claret.

But the Daily Telegraph points out that it was the Home Office under Theresa May that destroyed the landing cards that could have helped.

And it claims that allies of Ms Rudd are furious that she is having to clear up Mrs May's mess.

The row about anti-Semitism in Labour is the lead in the Times and the Daily Telegraph.

The Telegraph describes the scenes in the Commons, where Labour MPs criticised the party's leadership for failing to tackle the problem, as "extraordinary".

One MP, John Mann, told the chamber he'd been targeted for showing solidarity with Jewish Labour members.

He explained his wife had been sent a dead bird in the post and she had also received rape threats.

Mr Corbyn has pledged to eradicate anti-Semitism from the party, but according to the Times, Jewish leaders will boycott a meeting with him next week.

The papers say Jewish leaders are unhappy about an invitation being issued to groups that deny the party has a problem.

Changing economic fortunes in the UK make the lead for the Financial Times, which says the pound reached its highest level against the American dollar since the EU referendum on Tuesday.

It says data showing earnings are now going up faster than prices has led economists to believe interest rates will rise next month.

All of this causes the Daily Express to once again question the tactics of Remainers in the Brexit referendum.

"Just how accurate was project fear then?" it asks on its front page.

There's a sad face on page three of the Telegraph, which runs an article blaming emojis for ruining language skills.

This is based on research suggesting nearly three quarters of adults are now dependent on emojis, spell checks and predictive text when they use their phones.

Emojis are described as the fastest growing language in history, but campaigners warn the paper they breed laziness and dilute language and expression.

On its front page, the Times has details of a new treatment for migraines, which helped about a third of patients during medical trials.

The drug, erenumab, reduced by half the number of days blighted by the condition.

The paper says experts hope the medicine will be approved next year and could begin to help the half a million people who suffer attacks every other day.

The Daily Mirror reports that the pensioner who fatally stabbed a burglar who broke into his London home has moved out.

It says Richard Osborn-Brooks, 78, and his wife Maureen are terrified of revenge attacks.

In an editorial, the Mirror expresses its fury and urges the police to come down "like a ton of bricks" on the thugs who drove the couple out of their home.

The Sun, meanwhile, leads with the story of a grandmother who confronted a gang armed with machetes after they broke into her home in Bedfordshire.

It says they ran off after she grabbed a crossbow off her wall and shot one of the intruders in the stomach.

And the Daily Mail says the Queen is heartbroken after one of her corgis, Willow, was put to sleep at Windsor Castle.
