Thursday’s front pages focus on the ongoing crisis in Afghanistan. The papers report on comments from Defence Secretary Ben Wallace’s briefing to MPs in which he said it may be “safer” for Afghans to try to escape from the country overland. There are over 10,000 people gathered at Kabul airport.

The front-page picture in the Times is a reminder of the threat posed by the Taliban.
The Daily Telegraph thinks booster jabs would help to avoid “further lockdown measures”. But the Sun says only the most vulnerable will get a booster, with healthy over-80s missing out.
