Vox pop: How does the public feel about The Sun's new Sunday edition?

The Sun certainly wasn't shining when The Drum took to the streets of Glasgow today to canvass opinion about the tabloid's new Sunday edition.

And under gloomy Glasgow skies the city's residents gave the new edition a less than warm reception.

Here's what they told us - you can hear more views from the city's less camera-shy residents in our video above.

Jackie Wilson – retired
I don’t buy the Sun anyway; I think it’s a lot of rubbish. I won’t be buying their Sunday paper.

Judith Whyte – care worker
I don’t buy the Sun normally, but I did like the News of the World. I will probably buy it on Sunday just to see what it’s like.

Darren Seyfried – civil servant
I don’t like the Sun and I don’t buy it – the Sunday paper will be just the same as the News of the World, they were always the same thing. I think the Sun’s version takes them back to square one. I won’t be buying it.

David Williams – road worker
I like reading the Sun at work but I don’t read it at home because my wife doesn’t like it, she prefers the Mail on Sunday. I’d probably read it if it was around.

Amanda Cooper – receptionist
I don’t read the Sun, it’s tacky. I won’t be buying the Sunday version.

I am a Sunday Times reader but my husband was an avid fan of The News Of The World and this is a straight replacement which he is looking forward to!

I don't buy THE SUN but why not have their Sunday edition. I would like to see a Sunday version of the "i" paper.
