Financial Times
The chancellor also makes the front of the Financial Times, this time warning businesses not to expect help with paying their debts. The paper says three million jobs are at risk but Rishi Sunak is rejecting bailout talk saying it is not something "governments should get into the habit of doing". Another cabinet member, Home Secretary Priti Patel, is pictured alongside a story saying Downing Street is sitting on a report on allegations of bullying made against her. Tech giant Apple's "€14bn euro tax victory" in Ireland also gets a mention.
Times
The Times carries the story on vaccine hopes as its lead but also reports on the possibility of the House of Commons moving to York while the Palace of Westminster is refurbished. The paper says Boris Johnson writes in a letter that the government is considering setting up a hub in Yorkshire. Another piece covers the sacking of Tory MP Julian Lewis for a "coup" which saw him win the vote to chair the Intelligence and Security Committee.
Daily Mail
And the Daily Mail says the police watchdog has "confirmed what motorists have always known" - that speed cameras are used to "fleece" drivers. HM Inspectorate of Constabulary and Fire and Rescue Services has called for greater transparency over the use of cameras in a report. The Mail says that some locations are chosen because they are "good hunting grounds" for fines, according to the watchdog.
Daily Express
The Daily Express also leads on the story of hopes of a coronavirus vaccine by the end of the year, with its story also mentioning good news from a US vaccine trial. Musician Rod Stewart wearing a leopard print mask is the main picture, while there is also room for an image of Capt Sir Tom Moore, who is to be knighted in a special ceremony by the Queen on Friday in recognition of his fundraising efforts.
Daily Mirror
"No laughing matter" is the Daily Mirror's headline as it carries a picture of Prince Andrew smiling behind the wheel of a car. The story refers to British socialite Ghislaine Maxwell, who the paper says might "spill the beans" on her ex-boyfriend and convicted sex offender Jeffrey Epstein's "links to the powerful and wealthy".
Guardian
Labour has offered a deal to end legal action by anti-semitism whistleblowers, according to the Guardian's lead story. Former staffers sued the party for defamation over its response to a BBC Panorama investigation last year but the Guardian says the party, under new leader Keir Starmer, was preparing to draw a line under it. There is also a striking image of Black Lives Matter activist Jen Reid standing in front of a statue of herself, which has been placed on the plinth formerly occupied by slave trader Edward Colston in Bristol.
Daily Telegraph
"Vaccine hopes rise", according to the Daily Telegraph, as scientists hail a breakthrough in the bid to beat Covid-19. Phase one human trials of the Oxford vaccine have shown it generates an immune response against the virus, the paper says. But a source has cautioned that while the results are promising there is not yet evidence of long-lasting immunity. Another story on their front page says Boris Johnson will join the governor of the Bank of England in calling for commuters to return to work to help the economy recover.
Metro
"You really couldn't mask it up!", the Metro says, referring to Health Secretary Matt Hancock and No 10 appearing to be at odds over the use of masks in Pret a Manger. It carries a picture of Chancellor Rishi Sunak sporting a stylish face covering on his own trip to the sandwich purveyor after cabinet colleague Michael Gove failed to wear one at a Pret on Tuesday.
