The Times says Jeremy Corbyn suffered the biggest rebellion of his leadership last night as 90 Labour MPs defied his instructions to abstain in a crucial Brexit vote on the single market.

Some 75 Labour MPs voted for and 15 against, while six quit their frontbench roles.

The Metro said Mr Corbyn faced the mass rebellion as the Commons descended into chaos.

The Daily Mail calls it a "huge blow" for the Labour leader.

Turning its attention to the Conservatives, Mail columnist Quentin Letts accuses Tory rebel Dominic Grieve of slipping into an EU building in London to address a secret meeting of people plotting to stop Brexit.

"Has there ever been a more unprepossessingly narcissistic figure that Dominic Grieve?" he asks. "Has Westminster a worse example of a silken slitherer?"

Mr Grieve says he does not want to stop Brexit and it's "rubbish" to suggest the meeting revealed his true intentions.

On the anniversary of the Grenfell fire, the Times reports that more than half of the survivors are stuck in limbo as they have not moved into new homes.

For the Daily Mirror, the shell of the tower stands as a bleak memorial to the 72 people who lost their lives.

The Guardian takes a more optimistic tone and leads on the story of two people who lost relatives in the fire but found friendship in what they say was an exhausting quest for answers.

Asked to put their year into single words, they offer "exhausting", "draining", "disappointing" and then "hopeful".

The Daily Telegraph leads on an expected announcement from home secretary Sajid Javid, that an overhaul of immigration rules will enable thousands more highly skilled migrants to come and work in the UK.

The paper says the move indicates that ministers are now prepared to project Britain as a more global country, open to business from beyond the EU after Brexit.

The Sun considers the change to be the first softening of a regime introduced seven years ago by Theresa May.

Pushy parents

The Daily Mail and the Daily Telegraph reveal the latest example of ultra-competitive parenting.

A head teacher at a primary school in Cardiff has had to rebuke parents who filmed sports day with iPads so they could challenge the results.

The head has written a letter to parents reminding them that "the teacher's word is final".

Meanwhile at Eton, teachers have started to remove mobile phones from pupils before bed to help them sleep better, reports the Times.

The school had expected an angry reaction but the boys have apparently welcomed the move - saying it gave them a break from social media.

And the Times reports that churchgoers tend to live up to six years longer than atheists or agnostics.

Research carried out in America found that the faithful not only smoke less, drink less and generally behave more sensibly, but they also find it easier to maintain a healthy social life, especially in old age.

The paper's headline says: "Churchgoers get six more years before the afterlife."
