Three of the Sunday papers lead on “connections” between the Kremlin and Leave.EU backer Arron Banks after it was reported that the millionaire businessman had had three meetings with a Russian ambassador.

The Observer carries a comment from an unnamed Conservative MP who said the allegations “raise urgent and troubling questions”.
The Sunday Telegraph carries a joint column from Amber Rudd and Iain Duncan Smith, who were on opposite sides of the EU referendum question, calling for Tory rebels to back Theresa May.
