What the papers say - November 6

The explosive leak of the so-called Paradise Papers dominates Monday's front pages as the Queen was accused of having her personal fortune invested in an offshore tax haven.

The Guardian, which was involved in the Paradise Papers investigation, devotes its entire front page to the story.

It reports that the monarch's cash was invested in a "controversial retailer", and says that over the coming week, the data leak will reveal some of the world's biggest businesses, heads of state and global figures in politics, entertainment and sport who have sheltered their wealth in secretive tax havens.

The Daily Mail describes the Queen as being "dragged into" the "£10m offshore tax row".

It reports that the data leak found the money had been "secretly funnelled" to the Caymans and Bermuda. A spokesman for the Duchy of Lancaster estate said all investments were "fully audited and legitimate".

The Daily Mirror calls it the "Queen's £10m tax haven scandal" and reports on other high-profile figures to have been named in the papers, including Lord Ashcroft and Donald Trump's commerce secretary Wilbur Ross.

The Times reports that the owners of Arsenal and Everton football clubs and the singer Bono are also among those "facing questions" after the security breach, while the i says the papers "shine a spotlight" on how the rich and powerful shelter their wealth using complex webs of offshore accounts.

The Daily Telegraph features the Paradise Papers leak too, but also reports on the latest developments in the ongoing sexual harassment scandal that has engulfed Westminster.

The paper reports that Home Secretary Amber Rudd warned she expected to see a "clearing out" of MPs and ministers as the situation continued to escalate.

Elsewhere, the Daily Express warns that freezing polar winds and snow look set to sweep Britain later this month.
