Today's papers report that Communities Secretary Sajid Javid is 'drawn' to the idea of an oath of loyalty to British values being taken by public officials, as well as claims that strike action over Christmas is being co-ordinated by unions to put pressure on the government.

Elsewhere it is noted that cold showers may have been the trigger for the Birmingham prison riot last week, and that Russia are agonising over how to commemorate the centenary of their 1917 revolution.

The papers claim that Laura Trott and her husband Jason Kenny will be among many Olympians in the New Years' Honours list, and reflect upon surprise winners in Strictly Come Dancing 2016.
