The discovery of a man's body in his home, a month after he was reported missing, is The Scotsman's lead. The paper says his family found his remains in the garage of the property which had already been searched by police.

The Daily Express labels it a blunder, pointing out that the police search had involved more than 50 volunteers, police dogs and a marine unit.

The Daily Telegraph says there is anger among Tory ranks at the scale of the Brexit "divorce bill" offer, said to be £36bn.

The Times is one of several papers to report how the National Trust for Scotland was accused of bullying after pursuing a Scottish clothing company for possible trademark infringement for naming a jacket "Glencoe".

Half of all trains arriving at Scotland's busiest stations are late, according to The Herald, which focuses on the latest ScotRail performance figures.

The Courier's Dundee edition takes a local angle on the same story, saying nearly 40% of trains to Dundee failed to arrive on time last month.

Council officials have been accused of holding "secret talks" about average speed cameras due to go live soon on the A90, says the Press and Journal's Aberdeen edition says
