Meanwhile, Royal Ascot bets are the order of the day in the tabloids.

The BBC will "break ranks on public sector pay" reports The Times. The broadcaster will increase pay of all staff earning under £37,726.

 The Daily Mail quotes deputy prime minister, Nick Clegg, calling public sector pension's "unfair and unaffordable", and The Daily Telegraph estimates public pensions cost taxpayers £4,000 a year per household.

BP could face $34bn in fines, reports The Guardian, as the oil giant prepares for legal bills and a clean-up operation. The Times covers President Obama's comments, comparing the oil spill to 9/11.

The Daily Mirror headlines, "Gazza cheats death", after the former football star is hurt in a car crash, while The Sun follows the England football team's training in South Africa.

The Independent reports on the official inquiry into Northern Ireland's Bloody Sunday killings as the findings are published.

The Express highlights a "New mobile phone health threat" as a new cancer study is released.

The Daily Mirror offers a free Royal Ascot £2 bet at William Hill alongside its racing pull-out, while The Sun rolls out a £1 bet offer at Ladbrokes, and The Daily Star offers a £5 bet with Blue Square.

Readers of The Daily Star can also win a Volkswagen camper van. The Times includes its ‘Game' pullout and there is still £1m up for grabs in The Daily Mail's football game.
