The Daily Telegraph says Mr Yousaf faced questions from reporters during an event in Leith about when exactly the party’s auditors had quit and what he had known about it.

Underneath an image of Mr Biden boarding his plane to fly to the UK, the i warns that mortgage costs are likely to remain high “as the government and Bank of England battle to bring inflation down”. Citing what it refers to as a “grim IMF forecast”, the paper says the UK’s GDP is set to shrink by 0.3% this year – the lowest in the G7 bloc.
