JK Rowling, Julie Walters and David Walliams recognised in Queen's birthday honours

A HOST of people from across the Bradford district have been included in the latest Queen's Birthday Honours list, which celebrates its centenary this year.

All team members received MBEs for their gold medals in the New Year's honours list - now their coach, the most successful in the history of modern British hockey, has been rightly honoured. In typical down-to-earth style, Sheeran pronounced himself "chuffed" with the honour on social media.

On the business side of things, Global founder and executive president Ashley Tabor picked up an OBE for services to media.

"But it's a huge honour, it's something I'll treasure for the rest of my life. This one is for everyone at Global".

The 32-year-old from Ballymena said he "totally honoured" to be recognised for services to football.

Pop star Beyonce and husband Jay-Z welcome twins
Beyoncé and Jay-Z began dating after teaming up on Jay Z's 2002 track 03 Bonnie and Clyde and married in April 2008. There's been no official confirmation of the birth from the couple, and no word on the gender or names.

Oscar-winning actress Olivia de Havilland, who turns 101 next month, will also become a dame.

George Arthur Fromow will receive an MBE for services to Haematology.

The list also includes famous names, like pop star Ed Sheeran, and Judy Murray, mother of tennis star Andy Murray.

Police Sergeant Gwyneth Buchanan, who was one of the first officers to specialise in supporting victims of domestic abuse, received an MBE for services to policing and the community.

Pam has also recently broken an arm, which means she will have to miss this year's Europeans, but she does have a trip to Buckingham Palace to look forward to.

Pamela Berry was also given a British Empire Medal for services to the community in Delph.

Fundraiser Doreen Golding, Pearly Queen of the Old Kent Road, is given a BEM for services to charity and the Pearly Kings and Queens Society.

Interestingly, this list was on of the most diverse thus far with half of this year's honourees being 10%, and 10% from black or minority ethnic backgrounds.

Britain's last surviving Dambuster, who had been awarded an MBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours, said he is very grateful to the thousands of people who signed a petition calling for his wartime service to be recognised.
