NI paper review: Rugby rape trial cost and PSNI data breach
The cost of a high profile rugby rape trial, poppy wreath damage and a PSNI data breach all feature in Monday's papers.
"Anti-paramilitary police lose notebook during loyalist probe," reads the headline in the Irish News.
The paper reports that the PSNI confirmed the book went missing in north Down.
They said: "Inquiries have been conducted to identify any potential risk."
The book included a female officer's name, notes from criminal probes and information on private citizens, names and car registrations of republicans from west Belfast stopped and searched by the taskforce, and crime-force operation codenames.
Meanwhile, a police search is underway for a missing illegally-held firearm believed to have been used during a shooting in north Belfast, the paper reports.
He is in a "stable" condition in the Royal Victoria Hospital.
Sinn Féin councillor, JJ Magee told the paper: "The people of New Lodge are concerned that trouble has spilled over into the streets and caused disturbance to local businesses and homes.
"There can be no place for guns on our streets."
Ireland and Ulster rugby players Paddy Jackson and Stuart Olding were both cleared of raping the same woman in the early hours of 28 June 2016.
Blane McIlroy, who was accused of exposure, and Rory Harrison, who was charged with perverting the course of justice and withholding information, were also found not guilty.
The verdicts came in during the ninth week of the trial.

The costs were revealed through an Freedom of Information request issued by the paper to the Public Prosecution Service (PPS) and Department of Justice.
The paper reports £336,000 was spent on legal aid; £160,000 was spent by the PPS on prosecution costs and £53,000 on court costs.
It is expected the bill will further increase due to legal bids by Mr Jackson and Mr Olding to recover their defence costs.
'Legacy for Sherry'
Also featuring in the Belfast Telegraph is a mother's bid to fund lifesaving equipment for every school in Northern Ireland.
Fionuala Campbell started the campaign following the death of her daughter, Sherry Campbell, in September 2017.
Sherry, 29, died after choking to death on a piece of meat at her home in County Down.
The family hope that installing portable suctions devices, designed to resuscitate a choking victim following standard procedure, will be a legacy for Sherry.
Eighteen soldiers were killed in two IRA bomb attacks at the site near Warrenpoint in 1979.
Independent councillor, Jarlath Tinnelly told the paper he saw the incident take place.
"The most shocking thing of the whole lot was the brazenness of it," he said.
"On a Saturday afternoon and the amount of traffic going past and the perpetrators absolutely unconcerned about who was watching them and who was seeing this going on."
Columba McVeigh was one 16 people murdered and secretly buried by the IRA.
The 19-year-old was kidnapped on 1 November 1975. His body has never been found.
The search will take place in a section of Bragan Bog near Emyvale, County Monaghan. This is the fifth search in the area since 1999.
The Daily Mirror headlines reads: "Handout for NHS heroes".
According to the paper, staff are being offered food bank vouchers.
Conor McCarthy from Unison told the paper: "This is what we've come to. Having to give people working their guts out food bank vouchers."
He added: "It's usually women who are the lowest paid and need the most help and we expect that we will see an uptake with this."
A mother whose son died from stab wounds in east Belfast also appears in the paper.
Deana Kitson told the paper about the trauma she and her family had undergone since losing her 29-year-old son, Brian Burke.
"Every day I wake there's a nano-second of normality before the horror comes flooding back to my mind," she said.
