Home Secretary Suella Braverman with Rwandan minister Vincent Biruta in Kigali

The Mail on Sunday focuses on Suella Braverman's visit to Rwanda, as part of efforts to deport migrants to the African state.

It says the home secretary has pledged to act quickly if the Court of Appeal upholds the programme's legality.

The first flights may take place this summer, says the Sunday Express.

The Sunday Telegraph reports that Ms Braverman has closed loopholes in the deal that could have prevented removals.

The Sunday Mirror notes that her trip coincided with Gary Lineker's return to Match of the Day on BBC One, after a row about his criticism of the government's migration policy.

It features an interview with a refugee who lived with the presenter - who tells the paper he believes that Britain should be proud of Mr Lineker.

The Sunday Telegraph reports on the race to save troubled bank Credit Suisse - and says thousands of jobs are expected to go in the City of London as a result of the deal.

It says the government of Switzerland is trying to seal what it calls "a shotgun takeover" by UBS.

The Financial Times says Switzerland is preparing to use emergency measures to seal the deal.

The Observer leads with Boris Johnson's plan to publish new evidence supporting his claim that he did not knowingly mislead Parliament over Partygate.

The paper calls the former prime minister "defiant" and says the document - which is set to include new witness statements - will be published ahead of Mr Johnson's appearance at the Commons privileges committee on Wednesday.

It's billing the appearance as "potentially explosive".

"FINISHED" reads the headline of the Scottish Mail on Sunday, which leads on Peter Murrell's resignation as chief executive of the Scottish National Party.

The paper calls it a "new humiliation for nationalism's first couple", noting the departure comes weeks after his wife, Nicola Sturgeon's decision to step down as First Minister.

The chair of John Lewis is exploring a plan that could bring an end to its 100% staff ownership, according to the Sunday Times.

Dame Sharon White is considering whether to change the company's mutual structure so it can raise up to £2bn in new investment.

The paper calls it the "biggest shake-up" in 150 years of the high street chain - which it says has been forced to close stores and cut thousands of staff.

New research has "put a cat among the pigeons" when it comes to one big myth shared among pet owners, says the Telegraph.

Scientists at the University of Lincoln have discovered that felines don't drag mice and birds into the house as gifts for their owners - as many people believe.

Instead, cats bring their prey indoors because they see it as a safe place.

The paper says extroverted felines are more likely to bring a meal home.
