Fred Bridgland
Biographical info

Award-winning foreign correspondent Fred Bridgland began his career reporting in India, Pakistan and the Middle East for Reuters. He was posted to Zambia in 1975 as the agency’s Central Africa correspondent, spending long periods in Angola as it descended into post-colonial civil war. In an international scoop he discovered and revealed exclusively South Africa’s covert 1975-76 invasion of Angola, at the behest of Western powers. He was also the Brussels-based Europe correspondent for The Scotsman and later that newspaper’s London-based diplomatic correspondent. He joined the Sunday Telegraph of London in 1989 as its southern Africa correspondent. Bridgland is a graduate of Scotland’s St Andrews University. He lives in Edinburgh.
