The Daily Mail reports that pupils in both primary and secondary schools will receive routine mental health checks, as part of a £1.9bn plan for mental health services in schools.

Alcohol consumption among the under-25s has hit a “record low”, according to the lead story in the Times. A third of young people now abstain from alcohol and the proportion of them who have never tried it has almost doubled in the past decade – according to a survey of 10,000 young people.

Young adults are “stuck at home” because of “soaring property prices” in the UK, says the Daily Express. Billing its story as an exclusive, it says 26% of young adults aged between 20 and 34 are living with their parents because they “cannot afford to fly the nest”.

The FT leads on a Bank of England warning to Brussels, as it calls on EU banks to do more to protect cross-border financial services from the risks of a no-deal, or cliff-edge, Brexit. The Bank of England says up to £41tn of derivatives contracts maturing after Brexit are at risk. The paper also pictures Nikki Haley following her surprise decision to resign as UN ambassador. Formerly seen as a key ally of Mr Trump, many now believe she could end up as his political rival.

It’s all about Strictly on the Sun’s front page. The paper takes aim at comedian and contestant on the BBC One show, Seann Walsh, who was caught kissing his married dance partner Katya Jones. His long-term girlfriend Rebecca Humphries, who publicly ended their relationship on Tuesday, claims he called her a “psycho” after questioning his friendship with Jones.

Seann Walsh is making headlines in the Daily Mirror too, but the lead story is a Royal Wedding exclusive. The paper says council staff in Windsor have told homeless people in the town to remove themselves and their possessions from the area ahead of Princess Eugenie’s wedding day on Friday.

“The NHS needs you”, says the i. The paper reports that health chiefs are calling on unpaid volunteers to support medical staff and improve patient care. The “volunteer passport” plan would make it easier for anyone with medical training to help the health service, it says.

The Daily Telegraph also leads with a health story, reporting on a decision by the Royal College of Psychiatrists to review its opposition to the legalisation of cannabis. It follows the relaxing of laws surrounding the drug in other countries, and the government’s recent decision to make medical cannabis available on prescription.

The Metro reports how a “proud gran” showed off photographs of President Putin honouring her grandson Alexander Mishkin – one of the purported spies accused of carrying out the Salisbury poisonings.
