Theresa,Silvio and Cocozza-Wednesday's papers

The pressure is mounting on the Home Secretary Theresa May as the Telegraph reports that Brodie Clark, the senior civil servant at the heart of the scandal over relaxed passport checks, has made a direct attack on her, accusing the Home Secretary of misleading the public.




The paper says that he claimed that he had come under “pressure” from ministers to compromise security checks in order to reduce queues at airports.

Border chief goes to war says the Mail adding that Mr Clark will also lodge a potentially explosive employment tribunal claim for constructive dismissal, plunging Mrs May into a huge political storm over who is telling the truth.

Luckily for the Home Secretary Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi announced his resignation last night,knocking that story off many of the front pages.

He quits with a stab at treachery says the Times

it was not the sensational claims about his sex life that forced Mr Berlusconi from power but his inability to convince world leaders and financial markets that he could put Italy, with a public debt of 120 per cent of GDP, back on the path to growth.


Whilst the Guardian claims that opposition leaders were swift to warn that Berlusconi could be plotting to re-emerge

The Independent leads with news that most primaries and many secondaries face closure on 30 November day of action.

The paper reports that head teachers are to go on their first-ever national strike according to Russell Hobby, the general secretary of the National Association of Head Teachers (NAHT),in an interview with paper.

Katherine Murphy, chief executive of the Patients Association, which compiled the disturbing dossier, said: “Enough is enough. Regulators need to be a lot tougher on hospital trusts who do not make decent and respectful care of the elderly a priority.


Elsewhere many of the papers report that UN’s nuclear watchdog,the International Atomic Energy Agency said for the first time last night that it has “credible” information that Iran has worked on the development of atomic weapons and “serious concerns” about its nuclear activities

The latest revelations coming out of News International also feature.The Guardian reports that a private detective Derek Webb, a former police officer,has claimed that the News of the World paid him to target more than 90 people, including Prince William, former attorney general Lord Goldsmith and Harry Potter actor Daniel Radcliffe's parents, over eight years until this July.
