What the Scottish Sunday papers say
Cardinal Keith O'Brien has launched a new attack on claims that the creation of hybrid animal-human embryos for research will lead to cures and treatments for many diseases, reports the Sunday Herald.

But Cardinal O'Brien has been accused of "lying" in comments that he made about the controversial embryo research legislation, says the Sunday Times.

The row over the embryo bill has led 12 government ministers to threaten to resign, according to Scotland on Sunday.

The Mail on Sunday features a story about a Scottish family of six children who face being taken from their parents and put into care because they are overweight.

Former Labour First Minister Henry McLeish has described independence as "a positive option", says the Sunday Post.

The lives of Scottish pupils are at risk because of unsafe science labs built in new schools "on the cheap", warns the Sunday Express.

The News of the World makes allegations about the Queen's top man in Scotland under the headline 'Queen's man is a secret love rat'.
