Welsh actor Huw Ceredig dies
Huw Ceredig, the Welsh actor known and loved for his roles in Pobol Y Cwm and Twin Town, has died at the age of 69.
Ceredig, the brother of Plaid Cymru politician and singer Dafydd Iwan and Welsh assembly member Alun Ffred Jones, played the role of Reg Harries in the long-running Welsh soap for 29 years.
He also starred as Fatty Lewis in Welsh cult film Twin Town (1997), and Karl Francis' films Giro City (1982) and Rebecca's Daughters (1992).
Fellow actor Ioan Gruffudd, who starred as Ceredig's son in Pobol Y Cwm, has paid tribute to him saying, "Without a doubt, he was one of the greats on our small screen and one of the Welsh giants.
"There will be a huge loss after him. He'd been in the series for so long, nearly 30 years, and I spent almost 10 fabulous and special years with him."
