Errrr, no! Her accent is defnitely NOT pure english! There is an Italian and mid-atlantic twang to it which one minute makes you think she’s american, the next “anglo-european” – very disconcerting. Didn’t like it at all and very off-putting and diverting. I suppose it works well enough for 2-miute reports from somewhere in Europe – but on Channel Five news reports it’s awful!
Only Anjali has the cut-glass English pronunciation that aids news delivery, imho.
