Youth workers, campaigners and charity fundraisers are among

:00:11.:00:14.

those from the North West recognised in the New Year's Honours list.

:00:15.:00:17.

Among the more familiar faces is the comedian Ken Dodd,

:00:18.:00:20.

As a young officer in the Merseyside Force,

:00:21.:00:28.

Sabi Kaur had the foresight to recognise the dangers of forced

:00:29.:00:31.

Very exciting, very humbling, and I am made

:00:32.:00:39.

up with the fact that I have been honoured.

:00:40.:00:42.

For seeking justice and for services to bereaved families,

:00:43.:00:44.

the Right Reverend James Jones becomes a Knight Commander.

:00:45.:00:46.

He chaired the Hillsborough Independent Panel which negotiated

:00:47.:00:50.

the disclosure of documents about the disaster.

:00:51.:00:52.

The family have shown extraordinary forbearance over

:00:53.:00:53.

the years as they have struggled to get people

:00:54.:00:59.

In receiving this honour I also salute their forbearance.

:01:00.:01:05.

Also giving up his time to help others is Kevin Jones.

:01:06.:01:07.

For the past 30 years he's been instrumental in keeping

:01:08.:01:10.

St Catherine's Hospice in Preston running.

:01:11.:01:13.

Astounded and humbled, amazed, all those things.

:01:14.:01:21.

Ken Dodd, who becomes Sir Ken Dodd, certainly was.

:01:22.:01:27.

I am very proud, very proud and highly tickled.

:01:28.:01:38.

The actress Patricia Routledge, who's originally from

:01:39.:01:39.

North West sporting stars are recognised too.

:01:40.:01:42.

Cheshire's Olympic couple Jason and Laura Kenny receive CBEs,

:01:43.:01:44.

:01:47.:01:49.

Lancashire's Olympic rower Scott Durant announced his

:01:50.:01:51.

retirement from the sport on the day he was awarded an MBE.

:01:52.:01:56.

Not retiring anytime soon is Akeim Mundell.

:01:57.:02:01.

Nine years ago, as a teenager, he began to help bring communities

:02:02.:02:04.

For his continuing efforts, he receives a British Empire Medal.

:02:05.:02:08.

I started working with the police and the local councils to put on

:02:09.:02:16.

under 18 events, to put on projects to get young people working the

elderly. The same honour goes

:02:18.:02:18.

to Richard Price from Chester, who's volunteered for the Samaritans

:02:19.:02:20.

for 40 years. I do see this not just as an honour

:02:21.:02:29.

for me but a reflection on the chest of volunteers.

:02:30.:02:29.

Even those being honoured want to honour others.

:02:30.:02:35.

The man credited with discovering the Beatles has died, aged 86.

:02:36.:02:38.

Allan Williams arranged the group's first performances

:02:39.:02:40.

from a broken window of the Claire House Children's

:03:23.:03:24.

Hospice shop in Bromborough just after 3.30am this morning.

:03:25.:03:26.

No one was hurt but the shop was badly damaged.

:03:27.:03:28.

The shop is so important, the donations we get off the customers

:03:29.:03:33.

and the general public around here, so I can't put it into words that

:03:34.:03:36.

all of their stuff is going to be gone, that they donated to us. It is
