The self-isolation period for people with coronavirus symptoms in England is to increase by three days, taking it to 10, according to the Daily Telegraph. The paper says the move will be announced later today by the deputy chief medical officer, Jonathan Van-Tam. However, it says ministers are also exploring ways to reduce the 14-day quarantine period for those entering the UK, which it suggests could also be made 10 days.

The same story is the focus for the Times, which says the measure to increase the isolation period comes amid “mounting concern that Britain could be weeks away from a second wave”. The paper says it has been told that the government’s chief scientific adviser, Sir Patrick Vallance, is concerned the UK could be “two to three weeks behind Spain in terms of the spread of the virus”.

The police search at an allotment linked to the main suspect in the Madeleine McCann case also features on many of the front pages. “Maddie cops find secret cellar” is the headline in the Daily Star.

The Daily Mirror also focuses on the secret cellar, saying it was found under a hut on an allotment where the main suspect, Christian B, lived in Hanover.

Officers “carted away slabs of rubble” from the allotment, reports the Metro. The paper quotes a neighbour as saying the suspect lived “off the grid” there in a van.

The Daily Mail leads on a survey showing that only one in 10 people are having face-to-face GP appointments. It claims the vast majority of appointments are being done by phone or online, which it says comes three months “after ministers vowed to get the NHS back to normal”.

“Young British and Black” is the headline in the Guardian, which splashes on a special report on what it calls the Black Lives Matter generation. It features some of their voices, saying that “millions of words have been written about the lives of young black Britons” and “today they speak for themselves”.

And the Financial Times leads on Santander recording a £10bn loss – partly down to the bank writing off £5bn in its UK bank. The paper says the move shows Santander retains faith in the UK.

Many of Thursday’s newspaper front pages have named the suspect in the Madeleine McCann case. Because of German privacy law, and the BBC website being accessible in Germany, the BBC has not included his surname.
