We win best newspaper award.

Byline: By MEGAN LLOYD DAVIES

THE Daily Mirror has been named Newspaper of the Year.

The paper scooped the honour after judges at The Picture Editors' Awards 2005 praised our stunning use of photos.

Head of Pictures Ian Down picked up the award from Chancellor Gordon Brown at a reception in London.

He said: "This is fantastic recognition of all the hard work the entire photographic team have put in over the past year.

"It is also an award for our production staff who used the pictures in the best possible way. We are all delighted." The Mirror was recognised for a string of stories illustrated by exciting pictures.

England's victory over Croatia in Euro 2004, George Bush's re-election, the engagement of Charles and Camilla and a foiled bullion raid at Heathrow Airport were all praised.

It is the third time in four years the Mirror has won the award and the second major picture honour the paper has picked up this year. Roger Allen was named News Photographer of the Year at the British Press Awards in March.
