Hunt for killer dominates papers
Newspapers (generic)

The killing of five prostitutes in Suffolk and the hunt for the killer features in all the papers.

"Catch Me If You Can" is how the Daily Mail sums up the police challenge.

In the Daily Mirror psychologist Mike Berry says the killer is "showing off" by dumping the latest bodies close to each other.

The Sun says that while it took the Yorkshire Ripper Peter Sutcliffe six years to kill five women, the Suffolk killer has taken just six weeks.

Pension worries

The Daily Telegraph believes there is a catch in the small print of the Government's latest pensions proposals.

It claims the new personal accounts strip holders of the right to claim compensation if they prove bad value.

The Times says experts are warning the self-employed, tenants and women they could lose the cash they save.

The Daily Mail says they offer a "crazy choice" between putting aside thousands of pounds or saving nothing and getting the same courtesy of the tax payer.

Antiquities returned

Greece has gained some consolation for failing to secure the return of the Elgin Marbles, the Times says.

The JP Getty Museum in Los Angeles has agreed to send back a gold funerary wreath and a statue.

The antiquities are going home after the Greek Culture Ministry proved they had been excavated illegally, it says.

The museum has returned other items to Italy and Greece recently and its director said he was wiping the slate clean of "the recent unpleasantness".

Diana concert

Prince William and Prince Harry's plans for a concert in memory of their mother Diana, Princess of Wales, also make most of the papers.

The Daily Mail says it is just what the princess would have wanted.

The Daily Telegraph says up to 90,000 people will attend on July 1 - what would have been her 46th birthday.

Meanwhile, the princes will also hold a memorial service on August 31 in London - the day the princess died in a car crash in Paris, the Daily Mirror says.
