The shock resignation of the UK work and pensions secretary Iain Duncan Smith has left the Tories in turmoil, says the Herald.

His departure is a protest over "ruthless cuts" to disability benefits, declares The National which also features a withering critique of the chancellor's budget by SNP MP Mhairi Black.

The Times says Mr Duncan Smith had been on the verge of quitting for weeks as relations with the PM soured because of his vocal support for a Brexit.

The words of a Belgian minister "We got him" provide the headline for several papers covering the capture of Paris attacks suspect Salah Abdeslam.

The Scotsman tells how he was shot in the leg during the operation, while the Sun describes him as the world's most wanted terrorist suspect.

The Scottish edition of the Daily Mail says it is still possible to buy knives online with no safety checks, as a probe gets underway into the fatal stabbing of schoolboy Bailey Gwynne by a teenager who purchased a weapon via Amazon.

A massive search is underway in the Highlands for the owner of a dog which killed two sheep - after it emerged the businessman is missing, reports the Press and Journal in its Inverness edition.

The Dundee edition of the Courier says the city is preparing to host a spectacular "Big Noise" musical project - with a new El Sistema orchestra giving less well-off children the chance to learn a musical instrument.
