The BBC security correspondent Frank Gardner, who was paralysed when he was shot while filming in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, was made an OBE.
Mr Gardner is confined to a wheelchair but returned to reporting in April. He said he was "thrilled" by the honour. The Arab specialist was shot six times at close range during a terrorist attack last year that claimed the life of the cameraman Simon Cumbers. One of the bullets severed his spinal nerves.
Mr Gardner, 43, said: "After a very tough year for me and my family this is at last a bit of good news. It's wonderful to be recognised too for the work I put in prior to being shot last year in trying to explain the whole global security issue to our audiences and trying to put a lot of the hyperbole into some sort of perspective." Also recognised from the world of journalism is Suzy Menkes-Spanier, fashion editor of the International Herald Tribune. She is appointed OBE for her contribution to fashion writing.
Sarah Kennedy, the former Game for a Laugh presenter who now hosts Radio 2's popular Dawn Patrollers show, is made an MBE for services to broadcasting.Reuse content
