Great Britain Longest-serving newsreader Alastair Stewart has revealed he has been diagnosed with dementia.

The 71-year-old television news presenter announced his retirement in March after spending 47 years working as a journalist on local and national television in the UK.

He revealed that “very short-term memory is delicate” while “motor skills (are) very delicate”.

He admitted that about “six to nine months” ago he started feeling “disconcerted,” which prompted him to take a step back from his presentation.

GB News presenter Camilla Tominey revealed the channel’s new studio in Westminster will be named in her honour.
