The Liberal Democrat MP for Hazel Grove has been awarded a knighthood in the Queen's Birthday Honours list.

Andrew Stunell, from Stockport, said he was "stunned" to be made a knight for his public and political service.

Abubakar Chunara, founder of the Trafford Muslim Society, has been appointed MBE for services to the Muslim community in Trafford.

Wendy Parry, whose son was killed in a bomb blast in Warrington, becomes an OBE.

Her 12-year-old son Tim and three-year-old Johnathan Ball died in the blast on 20 March, 1993.

Along with her husband Colin, Mrs Parry set up the Foundation For Peace centre, which is now a national charity, in the boys' memory with her husband Colin.

She said: "Everything we have done in the past has been to keep Tim and Johnathan's names alive. This could be another thing that will help do that."
