The following statement will be provided to shareholders by the Chairman of
Trinity Mirror plc, Sir Ian Gibson, at today's Annual General Meeting:

"As we indicated at the Group's preliminary results announcement on 1 March,
although the advertising environment remains challenging and volatile from month
to month, we continue to expect advertising market conditions to stabilise
during the year with the rate of decline slowing. The Board continues to have
confidence that our 2007 performance will be in line with expectations.

"Group advertising revenue for the first four months fell by 2.4%. Excluding the
acquired digital businesses, Group advertising revenues for the first four
months fell by 3.0%.

"For our Regionals division advertising revenues decreased by 2.3%. By category
display fell by 1.2%, recruitment fell by 3.0%, motors fell by 11.4%, property
increased by 4.1% and other categories fell by 4.3%. Excluding the acquired
digital businesses, the Regionals division advertising revenues for the first
four months fell by 3.3%.

"Advertising revenues for our Nationals division fell by 4.0%.The Scottish
Nationals achieved a strong advertising revenue performance with growth of 0.9%
with the UK Nationals advertising revenues falling by 5.8%.

"For the Sports division advertising revenues increased by 17.7% reflecting
significantly weaker comparatives partially due to a competitive launch which
has since ceased publication.

"Digital revenues for our Regionals division, including organic and acquired
businesses, achieved strong underlying growth of 24.8%. Our Nationals division
also achieved strong growth of 30.7% for the period.

"Group circulation revenues for the first four months fell by 0.5%. Circulation
revenues for our Scottish Nationals and our Sports division increased by 0.3%,
and for the Regionals and UK Nationals they fell by 0.8% and 0.7% respectively.

"We continue to make encouraging progress on the disposal of our Regional
businesses in the Midlands and London and the South East, and the Sports
division and expect to complete these transactions as planned during the second
and third quarters."
