NHS 'meltdown' and MP numbers cut

The news that David Cameron is to quit the House of Commons, while the BBC loses out to Channel 4 to screen the Great British Bake Off, dominates Tuesday's front pages.

The National says that the former prime minister has quit parliament rather than rebel against Theresa May's grammar school plans south of the border.

Meanwhile, The Times of Scotland writes that David Cameron has called time on his political career after two months spent watching Theresa May "purge his allies and tear up key policies".

Mr Cameron is now set to "reap millions of pounds" outside politics despite never having had a "real job", is how the Scottish Daily Mail reports the story.

Elsewhere, The Herald reports on a warning from Dr Mark Holland - the president of the Society for Acute Medicine - who has said that the NHS in Scotland will experience "pockets of meltdown" this winter as the service comes under increasing pressure.

On a similar note, the Scottish Daily Express claims that GPs could close their doors to patients because of a chronic shortage of family doctors in Scotland.

Support among Scots for independence is marginally higher than it was almost two years ago when the country rejected leaving the UK in a closer-than-expected vote, says The Scotsman, which reports on a new poll by Kantar TNS.

A Scot who caused a flight to be diverted in the US refuses to apologise for "causing chaos", claims the Daily Record.

The i writes that Labour are set to be the main losers under plans for the "biggest overhaul of the parliamentary map" for nearly a century. Jeremy Corbyn and his leadership challenger Owen Smith are among many senior opposition figures whose constituencies will vanish or be heavily redrawn.

Channel 4 is now the home of The Great British Bake Off after the BBC lost the rights to the baking phenomenon, reports the Daily Star of Scotland. The paper says the popular baking show will now be shown on Channel 4, after it was confirmed the broadcaster has signed a new three-year deal with the show's production company.
