Daily Mirror slump blots Trinity’s Express deal
Daily Mirror: sales down by almost 20%
Trinity Mirror, fresh from acquiring the Express titles, has seen sales of its flagship Daily Mirror and Sunday People titles slump by nearly a fifth.
The company, which also saw big falls for the Daily Record and Sunday Mail, will have been more encouraged by an increase in sale for its new charge the Daily Star which out-sold the Daily Telegraph last month.
Trinity last week announced the acquisition of the Express and Star papers, and OK! magazine, from Northern & Shell owner Richard Desmond for £127m.
The Times has also overtaken sales of the Telegraph for the first time and remains ahead of the broadsheet for January, but only when bulk sales are included.
