The Times says thousands of European criminals will face deportation after Brexit, because they won’t be eligible to be granted “settled status” allowing them to stay in the UK.

The inability to expel such criminals “has long enraged ministers”, according to the paper, which says those affected are likely to include people convicted of violence, and sex and drug offenders.

The paper quotes the Conservative MP Nadine Dorries, who accuses John McDonnell of playing politics with people’s lives.

“It would have been nice if he let the dust settle, bodies be identified, and given people people time to grieve before he played politics with the lives of those who suffered,” the MP tells the Mail.

The i newspaper reports the latest developments in the investigation into the fire at Grenfell Tower, and the proportion of high-rise blocks failing safety checks so far, with the headline “100% unsafe”.
