Two Bristolians become CBEs, two are made OBEs and nine people are made MBEs in the Queen's New Year Honours list.

Professor Patricia Broadfoot, of the University of Bristol, and John Savage, of Business West, are made CBE.

The chairman of selectors for England's winning Ashes team, David Graveney, said he thought the letter saying he was made an OBE was from the tax man.

Mr Smith is chair of the Friends of Arnos Vale.
