  1. If the sunday people keeps dropping at that rate it will be gone be summer 2020 same applies to sunday post, daily star sunday and sunday mail. The sunday titles are in their last few years of life. I can see daily star going to 6 days a week.

    1. Reach will probably have to look at merging titles. A Sunday Mail &mirror in Scotland with the Sunday Mirror serving the rest of the UK and a UK wide Star Sunday People.
