Trinity Mirror gets approach for Sunday People tabloid
LONDON Jan 11 (Reuters) - British newspaper group Trinity Mirror said on Friday it had been approached by a group of investors interested in its Sunday People tabloid.
Earlier on Friday, the Financial Times reported that a consortium headed by former Fleet Street editor Sue Douglas and backed by private equity firm Phoenix Ventures had proposed buying a majority stake in the title for 10 million pounds ($16 million).
They want to rename the newspaper The News of the People, with the aim of attracting former readers of the now defunct News of The World, the FT said.
