Another Jersey resident, Annette Langley, has been appointed MBE for services to Family Nursing and Home Care and the nursing profession.

Nigel Truscott, the Commander of St John Ambulance in Jersey, has also been appointed MBE for his voluntary service to the charity.

He has been involved with the St John Ambulance for 43 years, since he joined as a cadet in 1969.

Mr Truscott said: "I was overjoyed and extremely honoured of course, the letter came through the post about six weeks ago and not having to tell anybody was quite difficult."
