The Papers: 'Iran general killed' and 'record' boat arrivals - 1 minute read

The Guardian has conducted analysis which suggests that the government has made "zero progress" on half of the Conservatives' levelling up goals. The study indicates that of the 12 initial targets set for less prosperous regions of Britain, nothing has been achieved in education, skills, wellbeing, local pride, housing and health. An academic is quoted accusing ministers of "failing to turn the tide on regional inequalities". But the levelling up department denies failure, saying the plan is "long-term" and it is making "significant progress" in its mission.
