Rock star Roger Daltrey is among the Sussex residents given awards in the New Year's Honours List.

The Who singer, who lives in Burwash in East Sussex, receives a CBE for services to music, the entertainment industry and to charity.

Veteran actor Hugh Lloyd, who lives in Worthing, receives an MBE for his services to drama and charity.

Other people from Sussex given honours include a lifeboat coxswain, and animal charity workers.

I am so pleased. It is really great to be honoured by my country
Roger Daltrey CBE

Roger Daltrey, 60, fronted the Who from their time as one of the biggest UK bands of the 1960s through to their split in 1983.

The band have staged several reunion tours, although Daltrey and guitarist Pete Townshend are the only surviving members.

Daltrey has raised more than 2m for the Teenage Cancer Trust, of which he is patron, through concerts at the Royal Albert Hall.

Celebrating the news of his CBE, he said: "I am so pleased. It is really great to be honoured by my country."

Actor Hugh Lloyd, 81, given an MBE, has appeared in countless films and television series since the 1950s.

He appeared in BBC comedies Hancock's Half Hour, Till Death Us Do Part and the long-running series Hugh and I, in which he starred alongside Terry Scott.

His film credits include a part in The Who's musical Quadrophenia and he has also been a regular on the West End stage and in pantomime.

Other Sussex residents recognised in the New Year's Honours List include Peter Huxtable, coxswain of the Shoreham Harbour Lifeboat and a lifeboatman for 36 years.

Awarded the MBE for services to the Royal National Lifeboat Institute, he said: "The boat is built to save lives and that's what we do.

"I think we're quite a close community so the local people give us recognition."

Another person to receive an MBE was Deborah Barber, director of the South of England Agricultural Society, for services to agriculture.

Dr Bill Jordan, vice president of the Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA), receives an OBE.

Dr Jordan, who lives near Horsham in West Sussex, is recognised for his services to wildlife conservation and animal welfare.
