Historical Legal Issues

In its interim results announcement on 28th July 2014, Trinity Mirror plc ("the Company") highlighted its intention to deal with and resolve a number of civil claims in relation to phone hacking. The Company today confirms that its subsidiary MGN Ltd has admitted liability to four individuals who had sued MGN for alleged interception of their voicemails many years ago. MGN has apologised to those individuals and agreed to pay compensation.  The amount of that compensation will be assessed by the court if it cannot be agreed.

The Company can also confirm that six other voicemail interception claims have already been settled for agreed sums.

The Company confirms that these steps were within those contemplated at the time of the interim results announcement.
