Sir Kenny Daglish leads Queen's Birthday Honours list

Kazuo Ishiguro

Also on the list is perfume entrepreneur Jo Malone, who is granted a CBE, and journalist and radio presenter Kate Adie, who receives the same honour.

Joking that he thought the letter informing him of the knighthood had been from the taxman, he added of the achievement: "We only set out to do the best we possibly could, even through all the other stuff - the charity or Hillsborough, it was to help people because somebody helped us".

In total, 1,057 people have received an award with 10% of the successful candidates come from a BAME background.

"I like to think this award honours that, and the importance of literature and creativity in the classroom".

Keith Tordoff, owner and proprietor, Oldest Sweet Shop in the World in Pateley Bridge and chair of Nidderdale Chamber of Trade, has also been awarded an MBE for services to business and the community.

"She is a strong, compassionate and effective leader who has created a culture where staff, service users and carers are truly involved, change is championed and people are encouraged to speak out and learn".

Honoured with a British Empire Medal were John Metcalfe, from Mickleton, for services to the village; and Cathleen Anne Milwood, of Welford-on-Avon, for services to Stratford-upon-Avon.

Sister Imelda Poole, president of European anti-trafficking network Renate, receives an MBE for services to combating modern slavery.

Mrs Turnbull works with the Manx charity Wish Upon A Dream, which tries to grant wishes for sick and terminally ill children living on the island, while Mrs Heaton retired from her post with NHS Wales in 2017.

A master watchmaker and a woman who works with terminally ill youngsters are among the Manx residents recognised in the Queen's Birthday Honours list.
