:00:22.:00:22.

They're among more than 50 people from Wales to be recognised

:00:23.:00:28.

One of Wales's most famous exports, Bryn Terfel has been performing

:00:29.:00:44.

on the stage for more than a quarter of a century.

:00:45.:00:47.

Now he is adding a knighthood for services to music

:00:48.:00:49.

This is hopefully something that I will carry with pride

:00:50.:00:53.

and hopefully, also think that it might help some young singers

:00:54.:00:56.

Football manager Chris Coleman led Wales to their first major

:00:57.:01:04.

guiding them to the semifinals of Euro 2016.

:01:05.:01:08.

Tonight, at the annual North Scallon races in Mountain Ash,

:01:09.:01:15.

he spoke of his pride in being recognised.

:01:16.:01:17.

It's been a bit of a mad year, you know, very exciting,

:01:18.:01:22.

very exciting for the whole nation and just to finish it off

:01:23.:01:25.

with a personal honour, yeah, I'm absolutely thrilled,

:01:26.:01:27.

There were honours too for our real gold medallists.

:01:28.:01:38.

Cyclist Owain Doull and Elinor Barker and sailor

:01:39.:01:40.

Hannah Mills have all been made MBEs, as well as the Paralympic gold

:01:41.:01:43.

medallists javelin thrower Hollie Arnold and table tennis

:01:44.:01:45.

Community service has also been recognised.

:01:46.:01:53.

Vivian Gray has been a volunteer crew member with the Little

:01:54.:01:56.

and Broad Haven Lifeboat Station for 26 years and is made an MBE.

:01:57.:02:02.

I was absolutely amazed, I wasn't quite sure why I had

:02:03.:02:04.

a letter from the Cabinet Office on Her Majesty's service,

:02:05.:02:08.

but it's brilliant, I'm honoured to be getting it for the RNLI.

:02:09.:02:13.

Hugh Jones from the Central Beacons Mountain Rescue team

:02:14.:02:16.

In a list of more than 1,000 people, more than 50 people from Wales have

:02:17.:02:21.

been honoured for their wide-ranging achievements and contributions.

:02:22.:02:31.

Police are searching a house in Bristol believed to be the home

:02:32.:02:34.

of a 31-year-old man with links to Swansea who was found

:02:35.:02:36.

Mohammed Abdurezak was found with several stab wounds

:02:37.:02:41.

Police say the search is expected to take several days.

:02:42.:02:48.

There have been more than 3,500 crashes involving emergency service

:02:49.:02:52.

vehicles in the past five years - that's according to figures

:02:53.:02:55.

obtained under the Freedom of Information act.

:02:56.:02:59.

North Wales Police recorded the most incidents of those who responded -

:03:00.:03:02.

The Welsh Ambulance Service is urging people not to panic

:03:03.:03:07.

I would encourage members of the public, if they can't see

:03:08.:03:13.

the road ahead, emergency response drivers can't see ahead either,

:03:14.:03:18.

so they need to be mindful and stay calm and not necessarily stop,

:03:19.:03:22.

but slow down to find a safe place for the emergency vehicle to pass.

:03:23.:03:27.

Some New Year's Eve football scores for you now -

:03:28.:03:30.

and Swansea City remain at the bottom of the Premier League

:03:31.:03:33.

table after losing 3-0 at home to Bournemouth.

:03:34.:03:44.

The club are set to appoint Paul Clement as their new manager and are

:03:45.:03:48.

hoping to appoint him in the next few days.

:03:49.:03:50.

In League Two, Newport County are also bottom of the table -

:03:51.:03:53.

they lost at home to Exeter - the final score 4-1.

:03:54.:03:56.

Welsh Premier League champions the New Saints are celebrating

:03:57.:03:58.

after making sporting history last night.

:03:59.:03:59.

They set a new world record for the most consecutive wins

:04:00.:04:02.

Their 2-0 victory over Cefn Druids was their 27th in a row -

:04:03.:04:06.

breaking the record set by Dutch side Ajax 44 years ago.

:04:07.:04:12.

It's a fantastic and very, very proud record to have.

:04:13.:04:15.

You know, it's an amazing feat to win 27 games at any level.

:04:16.:04:18.

You know, it is not just an defeated, it is winning 27 games

:04:19.:04:21.

You know, it is not just undefeated, it is winning 27 games

:04:22.:04:24.

in all competitions, which is fantastic,

:04:25.:04:25.

and the players have to take all the credit for that,

:04:26.:04:28.

but everyone will probably not understand the enormity of it

:04:29.:04:30.

until the season has finished and, you know, hopefully we have won

:04:31.:04:33.

the league and we might have won another trophy and then we can

:04:34.:04:36.

Let's take a look at the weather ? cloudy with a band of rain moving

:04:37.:04:45.

That rain slowly clearing in the morning with clear spells

:04:46.:04:49.

developing in the north in the afternoon.

:04:50.:04:51.

Feeling a bit colder tomorrow though, with highs

:04:52.:04:52.

But for now, from all of us on the programme,

:04:53.:04:59.

Blwyddyn Newydd Dda, Have a Happy New Year.

:05:00.:05:01.
