The Sunday People is a British tabloid Sunday newspaper, founded as The People on 16 October 1881.[3]

It was bought by the Mirror group in 1961 along with the Daily Herald. It is now published by Reach plc,[4] and shares a website with the Mirror papers. In July 2011, when it benefited from the closure of the News of the World, it had an average Sunday circulation of 806,544.[5] By December 2016 the circulation had shrunk to 239,364.[6] Despite its tagline claim to be a "truly independent" newspaper, The People endorsed the Labour Party at the 2015 general election on the recommendation of polling data from its readers.[7]
