The discovery of a female body in Clydebank during the search for a missing teenager is the lead story on several of Scotland's front pages.

The Daily Record says the family of missing 15-year-old Paige Doherty "were in anguish last night" after a body was found a mile from where she was last seen.

Forensic teams are probing the scene of the body find, according to The Scottish Sun, which says police officers visited Paige's family to break the news.

The Scottish Daily Mail leads with the same story, saying a passer-by stumbled across the female body close to a golf range and five-a-side football complex.

Elsewhere, The Herald says thousands of women are to share in a windfall of up to £100m as part of a long-running equal pay dispute.

The Scotsman says Prime Minister David Cameron has been forced into a "humiliating climbdown" over controversial cuts to disability benefits.

The National says historians have questioned claims that cannabis may soon be legal in a certain part of Edinburgh Castle thanks an ancient royal law.

The Times carries the story of controversial welfare cuts being scrapped.

The Press and Journal questions whether Aberdeenshire murder victim Brian McKandie may have known his killer.
