How The British Papers Overhauled Their Front Pages After Syria Vote

PHOTOS: UK Papers Scramble To Change Their Covers

British newspapers were forced to dramatically change their front pages on Thursday night after the government's shock defeat over a motion to back military action in Syria.

Prime Minister David Cameron saw his attempt to gather support for a coordinated strike crumble, as Parliament narrowly rejected his measure. He then pledged not to override the vote, though he has the power to do so.

The defeat came well after the papers had already composed their front pages. Changes were in order. Nick Sutton, the editor of the BBC radio show "The World At One," tracked all of the alterations on his Twitter feed.

Here are a few examples:
