A range of stories from the political world make headlines on Sunday – from the latest on a no-deal Brexit and its implications through to a funding boost for the NHS.

The Sunday Times leads with a “revolutionary procedure” which could allow women to delay the menopause by up to two decades, alongside a report of Boris Johnson pledging a £2 billion “blitz” to help patients and doctors.

The Sunday Telegraph reports that MPs have been told it is “too late” to stop a no-deal Brexit, with aide Dominic Cummings reportedly telling ministers that even a no-confidence vote will not stop Britain leaving on October 31.

The Observer also leads with Brexit, reporting that a “secret report” has suggested schools may have to close and exams would be disrupted in a no-deal departure from the Union.

Brexit features on the front of the Mail on Sunday, saying that Mr Johnson has “ramped up his war of words with Brussels”.

The Independent leads with calls from new Liberal Democrat leader Jo Swinson for anti-no-deal Tories to work together.

Moving away from politics, the Sunday Mirror leads with a “race row” on Strictly Come Dancing following the appointment of Motsi Mabuse as a judge.

The Sunday People leads with an interview with the mother of Karen Matthews, jailed for staging the kidnap of her daughter.
