Trinity Mirror's managing director of digital media has resigned after six months with the company. 

The company today confirmed that Ian Dowds will leave in the summer, having joined Trinity Mirror in September. A spokesman said "I can confirm that he is serving his notice, and will be leaving this summer." 
Dowds joined the company from News International where he was sales director.
