The reaction to Theresa May's "new deal" on Brexit is the lead story for most papers.

The Guardian's headline reflects the overall tone of the coverage, saying her final effort to win the backing of MPs across the Commons "fell flat".

"Another fine mess", is the headline in the "i". For the Financial Times, the deal was "declared dead on arrival by furious Conservative Eurosceptics".

The Conservative Home website says the prime minister threw herself on Labour's mercy by dangling the prospect of a referendum.

Confidence vote?

But the Independent website says her deal "looked doomed to failure", while the Daily Mail sees it as a "gamble too far".

The Sun says the gamble backfired spectacularly, and senior Tory backbenchers will now force a confidence vote in her leadership when they meet later.

The Daily Telegraph reports that more than 50 Conservative MPs said they would vote against the Withdrawal Agreement Bill - among them, at least 20 who had previously backed Mrs May's deal.

According to the Times, Brexiteer cabinet ministers are expected to urge the prime minister to abandon her proposals. They want her to allow her successor to find a way through the impasse, it adds.

In the words of the Huffpost UK website, the men and women in grey suits may put her out of her misery.

The Daily Mirror has a special edition, edited and written by young people - and reflecting what it calls their interests, passions and concerns.

Among the issues covered are online bullying, mental health, plastic waste and climate change.

The paper's leader writer says few will envy today's teenagers, growing up in a world of fast-changing technology, social media pressures and political upheaval.

Jamie's restaurant woes

The Financial Times reports that talks between British Steel and the government over a bailout appear "all but dead", and the company is braced to fall into administration.

According to the paper, the company, its lenders and Whitehall are preparing for the accountancy firm, EY, to be appointed in the absence of a last-ditch rescue deal.

It says the Business Secretary, Greg Clark, has come under huge pressure to help, but the government feels it is unable to overcome legal challenges over EU state aid rules.

The collapse of Jamie Oliver's chain of restaurants is widely covered.

The Daily Express says it fell victim to a High Street eating slump. In the words of the Spectator website, the punters may have been buying the TV chef's cookery books, but they were not dining at his restaurants.

The Guardian says appetite for the chain waned as it faced rising competition from numerous Italian-inspired rivals.

Shoppers v robbers

Finally, there are dramatic accounts and pictures of shopkeepers, customers and passers-by chasing members of a moped gang who had allegedly raided a jewellery shop in west London.

The Daily Telegraph reports the robbers armed with a machete, hammers and a crowbar struck in broad daylight during the Monday evening rush hour.

As they tried to flee on their mopeds, the Times says, up to 20 bystanders chased them.

One member of the public knocked over a suspect with a traffic cone while others used a bin and a menu board to stop them.

A local resident tripped one of the men before about 10 others pinned him down until police arrived. Five men have been arrested.
