The cover price for Monday to Friday editions of the Daily Star has risen this week from 30p to 35p across the UK.

The Daily Star registered an audited circulation of 602,296 in June as it battles for readers against The Sun and the Daily Mirror. But the Daily Star’s circulation has fallen over 100,000 in the past year.

In the same month, The Sun, now priced at 40p, registered a circulation of 2,583,552 while the Daily Mirror, at 45p, reported a circulation of 1,081,330.

Last month the Daily Star's sister title, the Daily Star Sunday upped its cover price for the second time in a month to 70p.

The Daily Star and the Daily Star Sunday are owned by Richard Desmond, who also owns the Express newspaper titles and Channel 5.
