Mr Kendall, who was born in India, served in the Coldstream Guards and took part in the D Day landings, sustaining injury. He joined the BBC as a radio announcer and news reader in 1948 and in 1955 was the first British newsreader to appear on camera on television. Gay Activist sends condolences to Mark, family, friends and colleagues.
