The pursuit of the Duke of York over sexual assault claims and “permanent” food shortages are among the stories splashed across the front pages on Saturday.

The Sun carries a photograph of Andrew next to the headline “One has been served”, while the Daily Mirror reports the royal has been “hit by a writ” from alleged victim Virginia Giuffre.

The legal documents were “dramatically handed over in a bizarre cat-and-mouse game with security” at the duke’s Windsor home, according to the Daily Mail.

Meanwhile, the i says the Prime Minister will tell the public next week that tighter anti-Covid restrictions could be imposed this autumn if people do not behave with caution.

The Daily Telegraph reports ministers fear council tax bills will have to rise for millions of households next year to pay for social care “despite Boris Johnson’s tax raid”.

A combination of the effects of the pandemic and Brexit means food shortages in restaurants and supermarkets are “permanent”, the head of the Food and Drink Federation is quoted by The Independent as saying.

Mr Johnson wants to be in power for longer than Margaret Thatcher and has set out his pitch for the 2024 election for the first time, reports The Times.
