The Scotsman devotes much of its front page to the news that the Glasgow bin lorry crash driver Harry Clarke will not face a private prosecution.

The Herald says a survey of GPs in Scotland found more than half of them want longer consultations with patients.

Pressure is mounting on retailers and councils to end rip-off credit card fees costing hundreds of millions of pounds a year, according to The Times Scotland edition.

The Scottish Sun also reports on the decision not to allow a private prosecution of bin lorry driver Harry Clarke, saying he has been let off the "hook".

And the Daily Record says families were dealt a "double blow" as the court rejected a similar plea for a private prosecution of motorist William Payne.

Scottish Green Party MSP Andy Wightman has been told he is to be sued for defamation with £750,000 damages sought, according to The National.

The Press and Journal reports that six men have been cleared of rioting at HMP Grampian in May 2014.

And The Courier has the story about workers at Amazon sleeping in tents near the company's fulfilment centre in Dunfermline.
