Huw Edwards, a BBC newsreader accused of accepting cash for sexual photographs, has not committed any criminal offense, the Metropolitan Police has said.

The presenter at the center of the allegations has now been identified as Edwards. The parents of the teenager reported to the BBC in May that the broadcaster was paying the teenager 35,000 pounds beginning in 2020 when the person was 17 years old. The parents informed The Sun newspaper last week that the presenter had been let to continue on television.

In a statement, the Met said: “Detectives from the Met’s Specialist Crime Command have now concluded their assessment and have determined there is no information to indicate that a criminal offense has been committed.”

“In reaching this decision, they have spoken to a number of parties including the BBC and the alleged complainant and the alleged complainant’s family, both via another police force. There is no further police action. As such, the Met has advised the BBC it can continue with its internal investigation.”

“We are aware of media reporting of further allegations against the same individual. No specific details or information about these allegations have been passed to us and therefore there is no police action at this time.”

Vicky Flind, Edward’s wife, identified him late on Wednesday and claimed he was being treated for major mental health difficulties in a hospital.

Flind said she was naming him “primarily out of concern for his mental well-being and to protect our children” after “five extremely difficult days for our family.”

“The events of the last few days have greatly worsened matters, he has suffered another serious episode and is now receiving in-patient hospital care where he’ll stay for the foreseeable future,” she said.
