Harry Gration has a new TV partner - Amy Garcia who has replaced Christa Ackroyd, of Ogden, Halifax.

Mrs Garcia, 32, is Wakefield born and will co-present the programme with Harry Gration from November 25.

As well as the 6.30 pm programme, she will also present some earlier Look North bulletins.

She is already a familiar face having joined Look North as a broadcast journalist four years ago after completing an MA in TV Journalism at Goldsmiths College, London University.

Christa Ackroyd left the programme earlier this year after 12 years and weeks’ of speculation over why she left.

She was reportedly paid more than £150,000 a year.
