Clive Myrie and Eamonn Holmes among stars to pick up top gongs at Tric Awards

Veteran broadcasters Clive Myrie and Eamonn Holmes are among the stars from the world of television and radio who have been honoured with top gongs at the Tric awards.

BBC journalist Myrie, who spent time in Kyiv earlier in the year reporting on the conflict in Ukraine, was presented with the special award at the annual event on Wednesday hosted by the Television and Radio Industries Club.

However, Holmes beat Myrie as well as Victoria Derbyshire and Stephen Dixon to claim the news presenter of the year award.
