Furore around the refurbishments to Boris Johnson's flat and alleged "let bodies pile" comment continue to make many of Wednesday's newspaper front pages.

Covid, summer holidays and self-driving cars also made some front page headlines.

The Independent used its front page to highlight three questions around Boris Johnson's flat refurb that it said still had not been answered.

The Daily Mirror ran with the alliteration in its headline, "Cash for Curtains", and the Guardian's headline read: "PM urged to come clean about cash for No 10 revamp".

The i also focused on questions around the prime minister's character with its headline, "Anger at PM over 'let it rip' outburst on Covid", referring to the allegations that Mr Johnson said he would rather "let bodies pile high" than call a third lockdown late last year.

Other newspapers focused on the promising Covid-19 situation in the UK. The Times reported that 40 million live in areas almost free from coronavirus while the Metro reported that Covid deaths have "plummeted 97%" since the second wave peak.

The Daily Express reported on Boris Johnson's claim that the UK would "bounce back" from the pandemic while the Sun reported on Spain allowing Brits back to its beaches in June.

The Daily Mail splashed on plans to legalise self-drive cars by the end of this year.
