Newspaper headlines: 'BBC suspends star' and 'calls in police' – BBC

The focus of most of the front pages remains the un-named BBC presenter, accused of paying a teenager for sexual images.
The Daily Telegraph – among others – headlines the corporation's move to refer the matter to the police.
According to the Daily Mail, the director general was not made aware of the allegations until last Thursday because bosses didn't at first register the seriousness of the claims.
The Sun says the BBC has a "sorry history of ignoring complaints and rumours about its own presenters, sometimes with appalling consequences."
The Financial Times reports that the US and Germany are under "intense" pressure from other allies to show greater support for Ukraine's eventual membership of Nato.
The paper says both countries have backed a form of words for the concluding statement of the forthcoming Nato summit that does not fully endorse a "pathway" for Ukraine to join.
And the Daily Telegraph says that an interview Joe Biden did with CNN – in which he said that he didn't think Ukraine was "ready" to join Nato – was considered by some Tory MPs as "snub" to Rishi Sunak ahead of their meeting today.
The paper quotes former cabinet minister – David Jones – as saying that it "would appear the US President had decided to side with a reluctant Germany, rather than with America's closest ally – Britain".
The Guardian's front page reveals it has discovered that more than 50 MPs have owned stakes in public limited companies – like energy suppliers and supermarkets.
It reports that the information does not have to be disclosed in Parliamentary registers – unless the shares are worth more than £70,000 – and has, in effect, been "secret" until now.
But the paper says it raises questions about possible conflicts of interest.
Judges are being "urged to get tough with Just Stop Oil protestors" according to a story on the Times front page.
The paper reports that ministers and police chiefs want judges to hand down longer sentences to deter the environmental campaigners from disrupting sporting events.
It says they want the "wider risk" to the public – from pitch invasions and stunts – to be taken into account.
Warmer springs are causing problems for British bumblebees – according to a big study featured in the Daily Mail.
The paper says it shows the wild bees emerge from their nests six and a half days earlier – on average – for every one degree rise in temperature.
It means – researchers say – that they could end up "out of sync" with the plants on which they depend for food, and that they may not be able to pollinate "effectively".
The Times reports that drinkers at Wimbledon are being told to "put a cork in it" – after a player was put off her serve by a popping champagne bottle.
It led to the Australian umpire John Blum issuing a public warning.
This was described by one commentator as "the most Wimbledon warning ever heard".
And the Sun features a story about Portia the pot-bellied pig – who has been rescued from a flat in Manchester.
She weighed in at 26 stone after being fed on junk food and fizzy drinks for seven years.
The paper says she is now being cared for at an animal sanctuary.
