Contagion in Europe,Rome burns and Wills saves the day for England's poppies-Thursday's papers

One story dominates many of the front pages this morning.

Contagion says the Independent as it reports that Christine Lagarde, managing director of the International Monetary Fund, warned that the world is facing a "lost decade" of economic growth thanks to a eurozone sovereign-debt crisis that is spiralling out of control.

The European debt crisis is spiralling out of control says the Guardian as it reports that Germany and France have begun talks to break up the eurozone amid fears that Italy will be too big to rescue

While Rome burns,the Eurozone fiddles says the Telegraph reporting that the interest rate at which the Italian government borrows on the international bond markets hit seven per cent,the point at which the smaller eurozone economies of Ireland, Portugal and Greece had to be rescued.

Whilst the Mail says we are starring into the abyss saying that experts said Britain would be dragged into a second recession unless eurozone leaders get a grip on the debt crisis.

Only the Times steers off the topic of Europe leading with the news that a report into decades of child abuse at Ealing Abbey has concluded that the Roman Catholic Church should give up control of schools if it wants to ensure that pupils will be protected from paedophile priests.

The FA has at least part won its battle with FIFA over poppies and thanks in no terms to Prince William according to the Sun and the Mirror.

According to the former,World soccer chief Sepp Blatter lifted FIFA's ban on the remembrance symbol after furious FA president Wills fired off a strongly-worded letter to him demanding a U-turn.

We Wills remember them says the Mirror.

A royal theme for the Express this morning which reports that Camilla has said she has no desire to be Queen because of widespread sensitivity to memories of Princess Diana.

Elsewhere the Guardian says that James Murdoch's career is on the line as he comes before MPs today who will be demanding to know if he misled parliament over phone-hacking.

The Telegraph meanwhile on the same topic says that detectives investigating phone hacking at the News of the World have seized a dossier of evidence which apparently shows Neville Thurlbeck warned the paper's editor two years ago that phone hacking was widespread.

Have we finally found a way of controlling Malaria? According to the Independent, the advance announced yesterday by scientists at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute in Cambridge could spell the complete global eradication of the disease.

Many of the papers report that a private company’s takeover of struggling NHS hospital could be the first of many.

Hinchingbrooke Hospital, in Cambridgeshire, is to be taken over by Circle Health under a long-delayed franchise deal that is the first of its kind in Britain says the Times
