A GIBRALTARIAN is among those named in the New Years Honours list.

RGP Inspector John Goodman has received the Overseas Territories Police Medal (OTPM) for services to policing in Gibraltar.

Labour MP David Crausby, who is vice chair of the Gibraltar All-Party Group in the House of Commons and a long-time supporter of the Rock, was also named and will receive a knighthood for his parliamentary and political services.

They join the likes of Andy Murray and Victoria Beckham who were awarded for their contributions to sport and fashion respectively.

At the age of 29, Sir Andy Murray is the youngest to be knighted in modern times.

Speaking at a tennis tournament in Abu Dhabi, Murray said: “I still feel like Andy Murray – that feels more normal – but I am happy with the knighthood and it is a nice way to start the new year.”

Others listed included editor in chief of Vogue Anna Wintour, Olympians Mo Farah and Jessica Ennis Hill and veteran Liverpudlian comic Ken Dodd.
