The Daily Mirror was again ahead of The Sun in both year-on-year and month-on-month decline. 

Daily Mirror editor Lloyd Embley said: "For the first six months of the year the Mirror has been the best performer in the market. We have led the news agenda with a number of world-class scoops, including the story of George Osborne parking in a disabled bay, our inside North Korea footage and, of course, our exclusive of the police apprehending the Woolwich terror suspects.    

"We have also campaigned hard against the coalition cuts and we continue to highlight the ills of this government. In these harsh times our readers know that the Mirror stands shoulder to shoulder with them."
