image captionThe next steps in the country’s coronavirus plans feature on many of Sunday’s front pages. The Mail on Sunday leads with what it calls “Three Giant Steps Back to Normal Life”. It says the PM is promising to remove the limits on mourners at funerals from 17 May, to scrap the “metre plus” social distancing rule from 21 June, and – this week – to issue the first list of “green” countries that people can visit without quarantine. The paper also joins several others in splashing with a photograph of Princess Charlotte – taken by her mother the Duchess of Cambridge – to mark her sixth birthday.
image caption“End of the Nightmare?” asks the Sunday Express, as it reports that the economy is on course for “lift off” after months of lockdown restrictions.
image captionThe Sunday Times says health officials are drawing up plans to offer the Pfizer vaccine to secondary school pupils from September. It claims “core planning scenario” documents compiled by NHS officials include the offer of a single dose to children aged 12 and over when the new school year starts. But the plans depend on advice due this summer from vaccine advisers, it says.
image captionThe Sunday Telegraph has details of the prime minister’s “blueprint to save the Union”, citing plans to spend billions of pounds on new road and rail links, treating Scottish patients in English NHS beds, and student exchanges between UK nations in a bid to strengthen the Union. The paper also says home testing could soon replace the 10-day self isolation rule for people contacted by NHS Test and Trace.
image captionThe Sunday Mirror leads with claims a Tory donor’s firm carried out the “gold wallpaper makeover” at Boris Johnson’s flat. The PM is facing questions about how the home improvements were paid for, and an official investigation is looking into whether a donation towards the works may have broken the law. Mr Johnson has said he paid the costs himself, but he has not specified whether this happened when he first received the bill, or whether he was loaned the money and later repaid it.
image caption“10 Days to Save My Life” is the appeal on the front of the Sunday People. The paper is campaigning for an urgent operation for nine-year-old leukaemia patient Nathaniel Nabena.
image captionAnd finally, there is heavy anticipation for the finale of Line of Duty on the front page of the Daily Star Sunday.
