Some fact, some speculation.

As Trinity Mirror don't have enough space for the Express and Star to move in, they've signed a lease deal with N&S to stay at Lower Thames Street for 10 years, with a break out clause to leave in five.

Speculation is that the Mirror and Express will keep their own political teams as the titles will continue to keep their editorial agendas as now.

The magazines are also part of the sale with New and Star under review, OK! is safe.

Personally I think the Daily Star Sunday and The People will merge with job losses from both titles.

Wouldn’t you risk losing customers who buy The People?

You could basically have exactly the same content inside as in the Sunday Mirror, if The People closed some would not move to the Mirror as they don’t like it, based on the fact they bought one 10 years ago, and could move to a title from a rival or not buy a paper at all.

All of their national papers have lost money - the company is down £113m.
