The Daily Telegraph has a cartoon of a woman overboard - dubbed "the unlikely survivor" - treading water.

She is surrounded by sharks, thinking to herself "keep calm, do nothing" as her ship sails away. It is Theresa May.

One of the sharks has a blonde fin, Boris blonde, and the cartoon appears above an article by William Hague warning the Tories not to change their rules to give grassroots members more of a say in choosing a leader - a change that would be seen as helping Boris Johnson.

The party could be swamped by an influx of new recruits warns Lord Hague - the very thing that happened to Labour in 2015 when Jeremy Corbyn was elected.

Kay Longstaff is the British woman saved after going overboard from a cruise liner in the Adriatic.

The recurring theme of this morning's coverage is that, in the words of the Daily Mirror's headline, "We have a jumper". That apparently was what the captain announced at the time.

The Daily Mail quotes a crew member saying "she didn't fall off the ship, she jumped".

The Sun hears a similar tale from fellow passengers, the Daily Star hears it from the police, while the Times talks of her "leaping into the sea after a boozy bust-up".

The Mail's also been speaking to her father, Ron Longstaff, a retired police officer. He tells the paper his daughter has been going through a very hard time and he discovered she was at the centre of the drama only after seeing her interviewed on the television news.

According to the Mail, our "powder-keg prisons are ready to explode".

It blames outdated, neglected buildings, overcrowding, insanitary cell conditions, too few prison officers and the scourge of drugs and violence.

"The prison crisis is galloping onwards," says the Times, "as successive governments dodge the issues."

A former prison governor, Ian Acheson, writes in the Telegraph that prison staff once felt confident about keeping order but they've become "fearful turnkeys, retreating to places of safety".

A cartoon in the Times depicts the private security firm, G4S, being "released" from Birmingham prison; a warder says "good riddance" as he closes the gate; another replies: "He'll be back."

'Messy divorce'

The Daily Express looks ahead to today's speech by Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt. It says he'll warn the EU not to risk a "messy divorce" that could leave Europe divided for a generation.

At the same time, the paper's website reports that a new Brexit-backing alliance of ten campaign groups and think tanks is being launched in a fresh attempt to force Theresa May into changing course and delivering a full break with Brussels.

The paper says the move follows widespread concern in the Eurosceptic movement that Mrs May's vision for Brexit will still leave the UK closely tied to Brussels and forced to accept rules and regulations without having a say in their formulation.

"Now we've got the house," she tells the paper, "it's time to save for the wedding."
