The group, which owns the national newspaper titles the Daily and Sunday Mirror and The People, said proceeds would go towards paying off Trinity's £768m debts.

The titles include the Derby Trader and the Northampton Herald and Post. A group spokesperson said, "These titles are peripheral to the core business."

The deal is subject to the approval of Patricia Hewitt, the secretary of state for trade and industry.
