Detained Iranian oil tanker leaves Gibraltar
The Adrian Darya-1, the Iranian oil tanker held by Gibraltar since 4 July, has been released. The ship appears to be on its way east through the Mediterranean towards Greece. It was first seized with the help of British marines, amid suggestions it was heading towards Syria, in contravention of EU sanctions.
Gibraltar, a British overseas territory, refused a request by the US to seize the ship. The US argued it had links to Iran's Revolutionary Guard Corps. But Gibraltar said the EU - unlike Washington - did not regard this as a terrorist organisation. Iran insisted last week that the Adrian Darya-1 would not discharge its cargo in Syria.
Corbyn demands election to end Brexit 'crisis'
Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn will launch an attack on the prime minister later, calling him "Britain's Trump" and demanding a general election to give a "once-in-a-generation chance for a real change of direction". He will say this is the only way to deal with "the Brexit crisis".
This follows a government report leaked to the Sunday Times warning of food and medicine shortages in a no-deal exit from the EU. But cabinet minister Michael Gove, overseeing Brexit planning, has described this as a "worst-case scenario".
Jeffrey Epstein abuse claims: Prince Andrew 'appalled'
Buckingham Palace has said the Duke of York is "appalled" by recent allegations of sex trafficking against his former friend, the financier Jeffrey Epstein. The 66-year-old took his own life in a US jail on 10 August, as he awaited trial. Prince Andrew "deplores the exploitation of any human being", a Palace statement said.
A love letter to my hometown high street
By Natasha Preskey, BBC Three
The shutters were down on the storefront that had once housed HMV, then a 99p store, then a Poundland, a for-let sign hanging above the door. I'm used to seeing the odd empty shop front in my hometown, Newport - the Isle of Wight's capital - but that wasn't the only hole on the high street.
The printing shop, the optician's, a newish little cafe, two of the old charity shops and even the sweet shop where I used to buy 50p's worth of boiled sweets, all whited-out, shuttered or with empty, dusty windows.
What the papers say
The leaked government report on the potential outcomes of a no-deal Brexit dominates the front pages. The Guardian says "divisions" within the Conservative Party have increased because of it, while the Daily Express calls it an "astonishing Project Fear leak". The Daily Telegraph, meanwhile, reports that it was released to "influence discussions" with the EU. Elsewhere, the Daily Mail leads on an NHS "crackdown" on GP surgeries that close for half days during the week.
