Trinity Mirror sells eight titles to Johnston for £16m
LONDON - Trinity Mirror, the UK's largest newspaper publisher, has sold eight free weeklies to Johnston Press for £16.1m.
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.
