The Belfast Telegraph writes of a former Northern Ireland minister that has said Secretary of State Julian Smith must "think outside the box" to try and save Harland and Wolff shipyard.
The iconic Belfast company entered administration last week after a period of financial difficulty.
Labour peer Angela Smith was responsible for classifying Harland and Wolff's cranes as "scheduled monuments" while working in the Northern Ireland office, where she served from 2002 to 2006.

Baroness Smith serves in the Labour shadow cabinet alongside her role in the House of Lords.
