Tower poppy installation designer Tom Piper becomes MBE
Tom Piper, the theatrical designer of the Tower of London poppy installation, has become an MBE by the Queen in her New Year Honours List.
The artwork, which was made up of thousands of poppies created by ceramic artist Paul Cummins, attracted millions of visitors.
Mr Piper told the BBC the project "became a piece of theatre" in the way the numbers of poppies grew and grew.
