UK Anti-Doping has today announced that Mark Edwards has been provisionally suspended from all competition after being charged with committing anti-doping rule violations under the UK Athletics Anti-Doping Rules (presence and use of prohibited substances). The athlete has the opportunity to respond to the charges against him, and to have those charges determined at a full hearing before the National Anti-Doping Panel. He is presumed innocent unless and until the charges brought against him have been upheld.

UK Anti-Doping is the national anti-doping organisation for the UK and has responsibility for the management of results and prosecution of disciplinary proceedings brought under the anti-doping rules of UK Athletics.

UK Anti-Doping will not be making any further comment.
