The Mirror is part of the TrinityMirror Group. Trinity Newspapers were the proprietors of the Liverpool Echo and the Daily Post (and my local rag the Southport Visiter - yes, it is spelt that way because someone got it wrong when it first came out!). Trinity took over the ailing Mirror group. Is the Daily Star a newspaper? I've never bought it, but I've never seen anything much like news in anyone else's copy that I've looked at.

Independent Newspapers are (I believe) still owned by Tony O'Reilly an Irish newspaper magnate.

He bought them out towards the end of the last century.
