Exactly 20 years since the referendum on Scottish devolution, there are two starkly different front pages dedicated to the event.

The Times reports concerns that Britain is the “sick man of Europe”. It says life expectancy is rising in other European countries but it has stalled in the UK.

A man who posted a “goodbye” message on Facebook before attempting to take his own life has spoken to the Daily Record. He was rescued from the Caledonian Canal in Inverness after a friend spotted the post.
