General view of newspapers on sale the morning after the three political parties agreed on a Royal Charter that would safeguard investigative journalism and freedom while protecting the victims of press intrusion, in line with the recommendations of Lord Justice Leveson that was met however with outrage and scepticism across much of Fleet Street today .

Newspapers are not giving up without a fight, after the Queen signed a controversial royal charter into law.

The regime paves the way for a new regulatory regime that Hugh Grant, Steve Coogan and co say will prevent some of the worst excesses that emerged during the Leveson inquiry.

But it's not gone down well on Fleet Street, at least most of it.

The Guardian and Independent, which have been more sympathetic to David Cameron's proposals, steered clear of the issue in their editorials on Thursday morning.
