Papers anticipate Harry's return
Mastheads of the national newspapers

Prince Harry's return from Afghanistan is the main story - and the focus is on the threat from extremists in the UK.

For the Times, the prince returns a hero to the Army, a changed man in public eyes and a target for jihadists.

The Daily Express has the headline "Target Harry", and says British extremists claim he has made himself fair game for a terrorist attack.

The Daily Mail says there will now be an urgent security review and he may have to curb his liking for nightclubs.

Terror target

According to the Daily Telegraph, Prince Harry is determined to return to Afghanistan as soon as possible.

The Daily Mirror says Harry's daring desert escapades came to an abrupt end when news of his presence made both him and his comrades a target of terror.

The Sun says as Harry returns home from active service, his brother is going in the opposite direction.

Prince William is to serve on the front line on board a Royal Navy warship, the paper reports.

Drink prices

The Guardian leads with a survey carried out by the paper on government plans to detain terror suspects without charge for up to 42 days.

The paper says the survey suggests there is strong and growing opposition among Labour MPs to the proposals.

According to the Daily Telegraph, Alistair Darling's first Budget will target wine, cider and spirits.

The move will come after intense pressure on the chancellor to take action on binge drinking, it adds.

Travel trouble

The Independent says British travellers are showing no sign of shaking off an addiction to cheap flights.

An "open skies" policy will herald a revolution in the skies - and a disaster for the planet, it continues.

The Times reports how Gordon Brown is promoting holidays to Fiji, a country run by a military dictatorship.

Number 10 gave permission for an image of the prime minister, with a bright red flower behind his ear, to appear in adverts for the island nation, it says.
