IRD INQUIRY: The Evening banner story today is a report that a rare glimpse into the business affairs of strippers, cannabis growers, thieves and prostitutes has been provided in papers filed for the parliamentary inquiry into Inland Revenue.

SCOTT WATSON TRIAL: The paper leads with story accompanied by a photo of Gerald Hope holding a backpack similar to his daughter's which she had with her when she disappeared. The report says Gerald Hope became emotional today as he told a High Court jury is was impossible that his daughter had gone away without contacting her family.

Also on the front page:
