The image of Nigel Farage splattered by a milkshake in Newcastle appears on most of the front pages.

"Shaken and stirred" says the Guardian, while the Daily Telegraph's caption reads: "Politics? It's not all milk and honey".

Meanwhile, the i links the photo to the questions about political donations. "Brexit Party finances get shake-down" is its headline.

But for the Daily Express, that attack was an "affront to democracy". In an interview with the paper, Mr Farage warns civility is breaking down and blames "radicalised Remainers" who think they are entitled to use any tactics they see fit.

There will not be any milkshake involved but according to the lead in the Times, the Chancellor Philip Hammond is planning what it calls "a pre-emptive strike" against the Conservative leadership hopeful, Boris Johnson.

Mr Hammond will warn the populist right is trying to hijack the referendum result with a no-deal that will damage the economy - remarks which, the paper says, are "aimed principally" at the former foreign secretary.

Paul Waugh in the Huffington Post agrees the comments show the chancellor's "anger" at Mr Johnson.

The Sun has a warning for Tory MPs who vote tactically in the forthcoming leadership contest in an effort to prevent his name going to the Conservative membership.

His allies have told the paper they will go to court to prevent that from happening - arguing that under the party's constitution MPs can not block a candidate who enjoys significant support among the members.

The Guardian leads with polling suggesting that people from ethnic minorities in Britain are facing rising and increasingly overt racism since the Brexit vote.

It says seven in 10 now report having faced racial discrimination, compared with 58% before the EU vote in 2016.

The Labour MP David Lammy describes the findings as "alarming" saying the rise comes "as anti-migrant populists seek to divide" using the "playbook of Donald Trump".

Digital wall

The Financial Times thinks American moves to prevent Google working with the Chinese firm, Huawei, form "a pivotal moment for the global technology industry".

In its editorial, the FT argues the US is seeking to constrain China's rise - but the measures may ultimately fail if they spur Beijing to develop a fully independent supply chain.

The New York Times says China has spent nearly two decades building a digital wall between itself and the rest of the world - to try to keep out content it does not like - but now President Trump is sealing up that wall from the other side.

Elsewhere, the Daily Mail says Prince Charles is to host Donald Trump for tea during his state visit next month.

The meeting is a surprise, says the paper, as reports had suggested the Prince of Wales had previously refused to have anything to do with the US president.

The Times report that Britain's elm trees are set to return half a century after they were virtually wiped out by Dutch elm disease.

It says a variety resistant to the fungus are to be planted in Staffordshire by the actress Dame Judi Dench as part of plans to restore them to the countryside.

Elsewhere, the Sun leads with the tale of a "skint" labourer who inherited a £50m estate in Cornwall.

Jordan Adlard-Rogers says he long suspected he was the secret son of the aristocrat, Charles Rogers - but he was only handed the keys to the Penrose Estate in Helston after taking a DNA test.

Pictured by an antique table with family portraits behind him, Jordan says he has quit his job, treated his girlfriend to a trip to New York and intends to set up a charity to help the community.

The blue open top buses carrying the teams are picture among thousands of flag-waving football fans.

"3 Peps to Heaven" is the Daily Mirror's headline, in honour of City's boss Pep Guardiola.

The Guardian calls it "Blue Monday", while the Daily Telegraph sums the scenes up with "Welcome to Madchester".
