What the papers say - December 11

Snow fell across vast swathes of the UK over the weekend - and Monday's front pages also have a light dusting of the white stuff.

Pictures of wintry scenes feature on many of the papers while a range of stories are making headlines.

The Times leads with the latest developments in the Brexit negotiations with the paper reporting the "compromise" on Ireland is in peril. Their report said Brexit secretary David Davis "exasperated" European officials by suggesting Britain would not pay the so-called divorce bill without a trade deal with the EU.

The Guardian also features the comments from Mr Davis, who said the divorce agreement between the UK and EU was a "statement of intent", suggesting it may not be legally enforceable. The death of disgraced celebrity publicist Max Clifford also features on the front page.

The same tale features in the i, who say Mr Davis has "broken ranks" and that Britain is now heading for a Canada-style Brexit deal.

The Daily Telegraph leads with a story about a survey delivered to 10-year-olds by the NHS in Lancashire which asks children if they are "comfortable with their gender". One MP called the question "deeply worrying", the paper reports.

The Financial Times reports that Britain's chemical and pharmaceutical industries are calling on the UK Government to let them remain part of EU rules post-Brexit.

House prices lead the Metro, who report the average asking price for a property has dropped £8,000 across the UK and £23,000 in London in the past month.

The Daily Mail reports that some eight million families across the UK cannot recycle many plastics as their council will not collect tubs, pots and food trays. The paper calls the situation a "shambles".

The Daily Mirror runs with the headline "Black Monday", saying the country faces "travel chaos" owing to the wintry weather.

And The Sun carries an exclusive story, reporting a "government blunder" in Russia means hundreds of "thugs" will be allowed to "wreck" the World Cup as their bans expire just before the start of the tournament.
