The Guardian headlines ‘slaughter in the countryside' while The Mirror reports a ‘rampage in the Lakes' and The Times details the ‘trail of slaughter' which left 12 people dead and 25 injured.

The Sun prints ‘cabbie's warning on eve of massacre' while the Daily Express ventures the killings were sparked because ‘mates said he was a mummy's boy'. The Daily Mail blames a ‘petty row' and The Daily Telegraph reports a ‘row over family will' led to the killings.

The Daily Star calls yesterday a ‘blood bath' and The Independent writes ‘a Cumbrian horror story'.

There is little space on today's covers for ads or promotions. The Guardian continues promoting its free website Guardian.co.uk and the Daily Mail promotes its Femail magazine while Breitling advertises watches in The Daily Telegraph.
