THE Queen’s birthday honours have been revealed -- and ten people from Berkshire have received commendations (including one local!)

Celebrating individuals who have made “extraordinary efforts” in a range of industries and fields, the list recognises those who have “put others before themselves”.

Of those from the Royal county OBEs have been given to people for services in tackling the coronavirus pandemic, decarbonising air travel, supporting disabled people and more.

One man -- Richard Marshall, from Ascot -- received an OBE for his work at AstraZeneca in his response to the coronavirus pandemic.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson said: “The Queen’s Birthday Honours allow us to pay tribute to all those who have gone above and beyond in their service to this country.

“Throughout the pandemic we have seen countless examples of everyday heroes.

“From those using their expertise to help develop life-saving vaccines, which are now being rolled out successfully to all parts of the UK, to the people who have given time and energy to care for their communities.

“We should take heart from the stories of those receiving honours today and be inspired by their courage and kindness. May they be a reminder of all that we can achieve when we come together as a society.”
