Nicola Sturgeon is resigning after eight years as Scotland’s first minister and leader of the SNP. She insisted the decision was “not a reaction to short-term pressures”, but said someone can work in frontline politics for only “so long”. The 52-year-old will remain in post while a successor is chosen. Jeremy Corbyn won’t be a Labour candidate at the next election, Keir Starmer has confirmed. The former party leader was suspended as a Labour MP in October 2020 after saying antisemitism concerns during his leadership were “overstated”. Police have “saved Easter”, says the Daily Star, after recovering 200,000 Cadbury’s Creme Eggs that were stolen from a Shropshire industrial estate on Saturday. With the culprit facing up to two years in prison, the “case is cracked”.
