    No criminal charges to be answered according to Scotland Yard, what actually is going on with Huw Edwards, has unsubstantiated allegations against him and published in the Sun sent him mentally over the edge, he’s being treated for his mental health now according to his wife’s statement, seems a complete mess at the minute. The alleged victim has said through his solicitor the story is complete rubbish, guess it’s watch this space but the Sun might be in for a legal kicking unless they provide evidence of course.

    No party comes across well, but there is more than one allegation now. The Sun should have been more professional when dealing with the story. However, professionalism is probably beyond hope for The Sun.

    The BBC should have investigated this straight away, so the vultures didn’t circle. Something like this would be hard to hush, and that shouldn’t be the answer to controversy. I do feel sympathy for Huw; he is evidently a troubled man and needed help. However, plenty of people suffer from mental health crises and don’t harass people far younger than them like that. The age imbalance is inappropriate and the power imbalance is bad. It may not be illegal, but it is not becoming. It’s important to remember that there is more than one allegation now, and that the initial young adult may have been unaware of the inappropriate nature or power imbalance. Not like that excuses how The Sun reported on the story.

    First and foremost, I feel sorry for Huw’s wife. I have no idea how much she knew, but if can’t be easy for her and she is totally innocent in this, while having to face this situation from her husband.

    A mess of a situation, amplified by news out for clicks. I don’t like going into news conspiracies, it is a story, but with a NATO summit, rising mortgages and Johnson refusing to hand over legally obliged WhatsApp messages, I can’t help but feel it’s not the most important story out there right now. That said, the media have always liked hounding around when one of their own is involved.
