                        Trinity Mirror plc: Board change

Trinity Mirror plc today announces that Stephen Parker will resign as a director
on 26th July and leave the Company at the end of July by mutual agreement. He
has been an Executive Director since January 1993 and is currently Managing
Director of the Regional Newspaper Division.

Sly Bailey, Chief Executive said: "I would like to thank Stephen for his
tremendous dedication, application and achievement in his time with the Company.
He has been involved in leading the business over the last twenty years, as it
has grown from being a small provincial publisher into the UK's largest
newspaper publisher."

Stephen Parker said: "I have really enjoyed my time at Trinity Mirror and am
proud of what I, and the businesses I have led, have achieved. From overseeing
the integration of the Scottish and Universal Newspaper's acquisition in the
early nineties through the building of Trinity Mirror plc via acquisition and
merger, it has been a challenging, exciting, demanding and personally very
rewarding experience."

For the immediate future Sly Bailey will assume direct responsibility for the
Regionals division.
