Newspaper announces 'Good List'
Bob Geldof
Bob Geldof is amongst those named on a list of 'good' people
A panel of experts has picked out 50 individuals - including some double acts - who they believed were motivated by an "ethical" dimension.

This list has been compiled by the Independent newspaper, whose associate editor Paul Vallely was involved in the selection process.

The chart does not rank the individuals in order of their "goodness" as the panel members were unable to agree a definitive order of merit.

Instead it is presented in alphabetical order:
