Jimmy Mizen's parents appointed MBEs

The parents of murdered 16-year-old schoolboy Jimmy Mizen have been appointed MBEs in the 2014 New Year Honours.

Barry Mizen said he and wife Margaret were both "honoured and humbled" to receive the awards.

They said it was not just an honour for them, but a reward for their whole family in memory of their son who was killed in May 2008.

The couple have received the honours for services to young people in recognition of the work they have done since their son's brutal murder.
