Mair 'relieved'

Broadcaster Eddie Mair told of his relief that Evan Davis is the new Newsnight host - because it puts an end to "tedious speculation" linking him to the job.

Radio 4's Today presenter Davis was named as Jeremy Paxman's replacement on the BBC2 show this month. Dundee-born Mair said it was "flattering" but joked that BBC bosses told him he has a face and body for radio.
