Sun shine

Sir: Dennis Hackett says the estimated circulation of the Sun is "said to be" about 2,080,000.

Said by whom? The published, audited ABC figure for June is 2,352,126. The average daily sale so far this month is in excess of 2,380,000.

If Mr Hackett wants a reliable estimate of the Sun's circulation he can get one every week for the cost of a phone call.
