The Sunday Mercury is a tabloid newspaper published on Sunday and sold in Birmingham and the wider West Midlands across Staffordshire, southern and central Derbyshire, western Leicestershire, Warwickshire, the eastern Cotswolds, Worcestershire and eastern Shropshire. As of December 2009 it was Britain’s biggest selling weekly regional newspaper.
It was founded in 1918. It changed its name to the Sunday Mercury and News in 1920, but reverted to its original title in 1931 and has kept it ever since.
It’s part of the same family of newspapers as the Birmingham Post and the Birmingham Mail, published by BPM Media (Birmingham Post & Mail Media), and thus belongs ultimately to the Trinity Mirror group.
Politically (as far as that goes) it’s centre-right – but many of the stories in it are sensational in nature or of purely local or regional interest.
