The Euro,three million snooping operations and the dangers of red meat-Friday's papers

Perhaps the Independent's headline makes the consequences of yesterday's Euro crisis clear.

Euro chaos-Britain prepares for the worst says its headline as it claims that we are drawing up plans to deal with the consequences of a possible collapse of the eurozone

G20 leaders, including David Cameron it adds, are contemplating a huge expansion of the International Monetary Fund to cope with the consequences if Greece were to leave the eurozone.

The Telegraph covers the same ground claiming that Britain is poised to provide billions for new rescue package as euro crisis deepens but adding that the Prime Minister will face strong opposition from Conservative MPs over the potential use of taxpayers’ money to assist European countries.

The Guardian writes that G20 countries are planning to increase the crisis-fighting firepower of the International Monetary Fund in the wake of yesterday's events whilst the Times believes that world leaders are preparing for the possible exit of Greece from the single currency.

In a sign of how perilous the debt crisis has become says the paper:

Jean-Claude Juncker, chairman of the eurozone finance ministers, admitted that there was detailed preparation had been made for a potential Greek departure — previously a taboo subject given that membership of the euro was meant to be legally irreversible.

Away from the Eurozone crisis,the Mail says that there is to be massive surge in intrusive surveillance by state snoopers

The paper reports that three million snooping operations have been carried out over the past decade under controversial anti-terror laws,and include tens of thousands of undercover missions by councils and other state bodies which are not responsible for law enforcement.

The Mirror leads with news that a Algerian terrorist given refugee status in Britain was last night banned from flying back here amid fears he was plotting a bloodbath.

Worried officials,say the paper, ordered airlines around the world to stop Algerian Reda Taher Nasouf boarding jets to the UK.

Another new thing to worry about in our diets if you believe the Express.Yes red meat and especially if overcooked.It is twice as likely to cause cancer than previously thought, scientists warned last night.

The Sun has an exclusive on the trials and tribulations of Spurs manager Harry Rednapp who tells the paper how he "struggled to breathe" during his heart scare.

'Arry, 64, needed heart surgery on dangerously narrowed arteries. But he said he is "OK" and promised to be back on the White Hart Lane touchline "in a couple of weeks"

Elsewhere in the papers,the Guardian follows up its lead yesterday reporting that Iran has warned the US not to set the two countries on a collision course over Tehran's nuclear enrichment programme.

David Cameron has concentrated too much on promoting policies that appeal to men and not women, according to a new group of Conservative MPs,says the Telegraph.

The Times reports that nurses will be amongst those striking as Hospitals, schools, benefits offices and driving centres face massive disruption on November 30 after Britain’s biggest public sector union Unison voted in favour of strike action over pension changes.

Meanwhile the Independent reveals that researchers have found that if you want to lose weight, a commercial company is more likely to help you shed the excess pounds than the NHS
