Huw Edwards, BBC’s Face of Historic Events, Identified As Suspended TV Anchor

From a Washington Post story by Karla Adam and William Booth headlined “Huw Edwards, BBC’s face of historic events, identified as suspended anchor”:

The person at the heart of a British media storm has been identified as Huw Edwards, a news anchor whose distinctive Welsh lilt has been the voice of some of Britain’s most historic moments and who was suspended this week over allegations that he paid for sexually explicit images from a teenager.

According to a statement released Wednesday by his wife, Vicky Flind, Edwards is “suffering from serious mental health issues” and “receiving in-patient hospital care where he’ll stay for the foreseeable future.”
