Sir Gareth Edwards pays tribute to David Parry-Jones

Veteran broadcaster David Parry-Jones has died aged 83.

The former BBC Wales Today presenter and rugby analyst for BBC Radio 5 Live died at a hospice in Penarth on Monday.

Mr Parry-Jones was born in Pontypridd and lived in Cardiff with his long-term partner, BBC Radio Cymru presenter Beti George.

Wales rugby legend Sir Gareth Edwards, who commentated alongside Mr Parry-Jones when his playing career ended, said he was always ready to help and was not the sort of person to hog the limelight.
