And finally - last Trevor McDonald bulletin tonight

Sir Trevor McDonald will present his last News At Ten bulletin tonight.

McDonald originally retired from ITV’s flagship new bulletin three years ago, but was brought back on a temporary basis at the beginning of the year when ITV relaunched the show to go head to head with the BBC.

Trinidad born McDonald joined ITN as a general reporter 35 years ago and has carried out a number of high profile interviews, including the first British television interview with Nelson Mandela after his release

He said: “I’ve tremendously enjoyed the opportunity to help re-establish News at Ten over the last year … but I’ve made no secret of the fact that I cannot be in the presenter’s chair forever.”

“Anchoring ITV News’s live coverage of a hugely exciting and historic U.S. election seems the opportune moment to leave on a high.”

Mark Austin will replace McDonald.
