Former Sunday People editor and Mirror Group chairman Ernest Burrington, described as an “outstanding journalist in Fleet Street’s heyday”, has died aged 91. Burrington, known to friends and family as Ernie, was born on 13 December 1926 in Oldham, the son of Harold and Laura. Unlike his parents, who were practical people – his mother a mill worker and his father holding a number of labouring jobs as well as that of a security guard – Burrington found his creative spark in the art of writing. His talent with words soon became apparent and he was encouraged by several teachers who realised his great potential.
