Former BBC newsreader Kenneth Kendall has died at the age of 88.

The one-time presenter of the popular UK game show Treasure Hunt suffered a stroke a few weeks ago and died peacefully, his agent confirmed.

He joined the BBC as a radio newsreader, later moving to television.

Very sad news. I can remember him reading the news when it was black and white only.

Indeed Helen - apparently he was the first newsreader on television despite many having done the job on radio earlier Smile
