An investigation into a “cover-up” over the Oxfam prostitution scandal leads the Daily Telegraph, with former International Development Secretary Priti Patel saying it was the “tip of the iceberg”.

The Financial Times reports comments from the co-chief investment officer at Bridgewater claiming the markets are entering a new era of volatility.

The i also carries a story of Oxfam on its front page, saying the charity faces a “day of reckoning”.

The Independent reports the number of people being admitted into hospital for drink-related incidents is at a record high in England.
