A study linking a weight-loss injection to the prevention of heart attacks and strokes features on many of the front pages.

The Times suggests the generuic drug semaglutide - sold under the brand names Ozempic or Wegovy - could reduce heart deaths by a fifth. It says analysis of a five-year trial has concluded that "millions of middle-aged Britons" should be prescribed the drugs.

Treatment is described on the front of the Daily Mail as the "biggest breakthrough since statins".

Finally, the Daily Express quotes the study's author, Prof John Deanfield of UCL, who describes it as a "game-changing" drug which "cuts weight and saves lives".

In other news, the Guardian leads on what it says are leaked proposals from a report commissioned by Labour - which suggests rent rises should be capped for millions of people, to give "breathing room" to those struggling with the cost of living.

The front page of the Daily Telegraph leads with "China fury at arrest of 'UK spies" - alongside the pictures of three men it says have been charged with spying for Hong Kong.

In other domestic news the front page of the i newspaper reports British nature is "in crisis" and every political party is "failing to save wildlife". The paper carries a warning from some of the biggest environmental charities - including the National Trust, RSPB, The Wildlife Trusts and the Woodland Trust.

The Sun reports there will be a "sex education clampdown" on Thursday, when Education Secretary, Gillian Keegan, issues guidelines to school.

Finally, the Daily Mirror leads with a report on Manchester United telling the wives and girlfriends of the club's footballers to "Find your own way to Wembley" for the FA Cup final.
