Leaked extracts from a new book that claims to give an unrivalled insight into Donald Trump’s White House grab headlines on Thursday.

The Guardian also reports on the book, alongside a lead piece detailing a letter said to have been sent by leader of the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead to police discussing rough sleepers in the area ahead of the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
