Continuing the coverage of events in Reading, the Sunday Telegraph’s headline is: “‘Terror’ in the park as knifeman goes on rampage.” The paper says that sources say the man arrested is understood to be Libyan. Meanwhile, the paper also says the PM will announce on Tuesday a “one metre plus” rule for all venues. The plan, to take effect from 4 July, will help shops, schools, factories and offices reopen, the paper says. People will be allowed to remain a metre apart if they take extra protective measures, such as wearing a face mask, according to the report.

The Sunday Times’ front page is also dominated by the attack in Reading. Meanwhile, the leading image is of Lewis Hamilton, who says he has been a victim of racial prejudice after being told he is not “British enough”.

The Sunday Mirror also leads on the stabbing, describing the incident as “horror in the park”. Police have arrested a man and the paper quotes a witness who says they thought a man was “playing duck duck goose” when they saw him moving between people, before the witness realised there was blood.

The Sunday People echoes the “horror” experienced in the park, and reports that three people died and 11 were injured.

In separate news, The Observer leads with a report that school closures will trigger a mental health crisis for children in the UK. Government advisers have said ministers will have to foot a huge bill to provide psychological health to children, many of whom will need “urgent support” when lockdown eases, the paper says. Most children are not due to return to the classroom full-time until September. And British director Steve McQueen is the lead image on the paper’s front page as he accuses film and television makers of a “shameful” failure to employ a diverse workforce.

Hotels and holiday parks will be allowed to reopen on 4 July, the Mail on Sunday understands, in a bid to restart the £130 billion-a-year domestic tourism industry. The paper also has a series of photos of Prince William with his three children which have been published to celebrate Father’s Day and his 38th birthday.

“Klopp boots Boris,” is the lead story on the front page of the Daily Star Sunday, as the paper reports on the criticism from the Liverpool football boss over the PM’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic. Jurgen Klopp said that if aliens compared the UK’s handling of the crisis to Germany’s “they’d think we came from different planets”, the paper reports.
