After the revelations of Michael Gove's drug use, the Guardian says he has "come out fighting" to "claw his way back into the race" to be the next prime minister.

It says he made "a series of personal attacks on the front-runner, Boris Johnson", highlighting a "bitter rivalry" dating back to the previous Tory leadership contest.

The Sun accuses Mr Gove of "taking the Michael" by appearing to mock the former foreign secretary's "tangled love life" by urging his rival "whatever you do, don't pull out".

Michael Deacon, for the Daily Telegraph, believes that tackling Brexit and uniting the country will be easy, compared with the task of bringing Gove and Johnson back together.

The former Conservative leader, Iain Duncan Smith, explains in the same paper why he believes Boris Johnson is the "right person" to deliver Brexit by the end of October.

He says too many of the other candidates regard that as damaging, which would make them "frightened negotiators" and mean they lacked the leadership and "mood of optimism" that the party needs.

Jeremy Corbyn is said to have been accused by his backbenchers of lacking leadership on Brexit at what's said to have been a "fiery" and "bad-tempered" meeting of the Parliamentary Labour Party.

Politics Home says close ally Marie Rimmer warned that even loyal supporters were "turning away" because of his failure to listen to them.

It says he also came under attack for the party's response to anti-semitism and sexual harassment of women - with one MP describing it as "the worst PLP meeting he had ever attended".

Huffpost UK says Marie Rimmer's remarks were greeted with "cheers and whistles". It adds that Mr Corbyn has agreed to "evolve" his position on Brexit, which is due to be discussed by the shadow cabinet today.

The Financial Times says the financial watchdog, the FCA, is being urged to reform the system of "best buy" investment funds following the collapse of Neil Woodford's Equity Income Fund.

It says the leading brokers Hargreaves Lansdown had promoted Woodford Equity to its customers, partly after securing a discount on fees.

The Daily Mail reports that Mr Woodford could be fired from running another of his funds "amid investor fears that he has lost his golden touch".

Shares in the Woodford Patient Capital Trust have plunged more than 20%.

The Sun reveals plans to revive the brand famous for unleashing Party Seven tins of bitter on the 1970s - a beer so bland, it says, that it disappeared within a decade.

Watney's has been reinvented as a craft ale and a crowdfunding appeal has been launched to put it back on supermarket shelves.
