A bumper crop of Yorkshire folk are being honoured in the Queen’s Birthday Honours, including three people from the Wetherby area.

Each recognised for their very different contributions to society, the trio feature in the list alongside the most successful captain in the Leeds Rhinos’ history, Kevin Sinfield, who received an MBE, and CBE recipient Bob Cryan, vice-chancellor at the University of Huddersfield.

They do, however, have one thing in common - they were all surprised to receive the award and pleased to be recognised for a job well done.
