As rival tabloid The Sun remains embroiled in debate over its Page 3 models, the Daily Mirror has taken a tongue-in-cheek pop at it, putting 18 birds on its own third page on Friday including 12 tits.

Underneath the headline 'Page three birds', a caption read:

"Some people make a big fuss about putting tits on page 3. But we think you’ll agree that these are rather lovely… and in the best possible taste.

"The amazing photomontage was taken at Stover Country Park in Devon for the RSPB’s Big Garden Birdwatch this weekend.

"The charity is asking nature lovers to take part in their survey by spending an hour counting the birds in their garden. Find out more at rspb.org.uk."

The image includes blue tits, coal tits and great tits, none of which are 19 and from Essex.
