Newspaper sacrificed to save one woman

Fleet Street reacts to the closure of one of their own - with sympathy for the sacked News of the World journalists, sadness at the end of the 168-year-old paper, and anger at the news that Rebekah Brooks remains in her job.

There's shock and anger at the closure of the News of the World - the Guardian calls the move breathtakingly cynical and says the scandal could still spread to Rupert Murdoch's profitable American media empire, while the Telegraph worries it could spark new state regulation for newspapers - bad news for press freedom.

And in other news, the Washington Post laments the loss of the space shuttle.
