The Daily Mail was a Muggle tabloid newspaper. A few days after the attack on the Millennium Bridge in the summer of 1996, patrons were seen reading their tabloid of choice at Treats; The Daily Mail was among them.[1] Vernon Dursley was a reader.[2]

Behind the scenes

  • The Daily Mail is a real-world tabloid newspaper, founded in 1896. The Daily Mail is the United Kingdom's second biggest-selling daily newspaper.
  • J. K. Rowling has said she particularly dislikes this British tabloid, which once made references to a stalker she insisted did not exist, and conducted interviews with her estranged ex-husband. As one journalist noted, "Harry's Uncle Vernon is a grotesque philistine of violent tendencies and remarkably little brain. It is not difficult to guess which newspaper Rowling gives him to read."[3]
