Our Mercury is hot stuff.

TOP honours were picked up by the Sunday Mercury at last night's Midland Media Awards 2009.

The sister title of the Birmingham Mail won Newspaper of the Year at the prestigious event held at New Bingley Hall, Hockley.

Organised by Birmingham Press Club, the awards were entered by titles from as far away as Leicester, Worcester, Stoke and Wolverhampton.

But it was journalists from Bpm Media, the publishers of the Birmingham Mail, who won the main awards.

News Reporter of the Year was scooped by Adam Aspinall after a string of exclusive investigations for the Sunday Mercury.

Photographer of the Year was awarded to Iain Findlay for a stunning selection of pictures that appeared in the Birmingham Mail, Sunday Mercury and Birmingham Post in the last 12 months. And Mike Lockley won Columnist of the Year for his popular weekly page in the Sunday Mercury.

Steve Dyson, editor of the Birmingham Mail and Sunday Mercury, said: "Congratulations to all Bpm Media winners for some superb work in what has been a difficult 12 months for the industry.

I'm particularly pleased for the Sunday Mercury team who have maintained the title's high quality and that enviable knack of surprising readers on the front page every single week." Also shortlisted at the awards were the following Bpm Media journalists: Jeanette Oldham, Nick McCarthy, Jonathan Fuller-Rowell, Tim Easthope, Richard McComb, Kat Keogh, Jon Griffin, Jon Perks, Tony Larner, Lorne Jackson, Graham Young and Phil Vinter..
