Newsreader Huw Edwards has been given an honorary fellowship by Bangor University.

The BBC News at 10 presenter received the fellowship on Saturday along with BBC Radio Cymru presenter Dei Tomos.

They are among 12 people being presented with honorary fellowships by the university.

Bridgend-born Mr Edwards said: "Receiving an honour is always a pleasure, but receiving an honour in Wales is an even greater pleasure."

The Welsh speaking journalist and presenter added: "Of course, in the case of Bangor University, which has a long tradition of promoting Welsh over many decades, it's an honour for me to be here, and I'm grateful to the University for offering me this honour, which I will always be pleased to have received."

Professor John G Hughes, the university's vice-chancellor, added: "Bangor University is strongly grounded within its community and we're delighted to be able to acknowledge the valuable contributions made by these individuals in their chosen fields."
