Health Minister named MBE in Queen's birthday honours

The Island's Health Minister has been recognised in the Queen's birthday honours.

David Ashford has received an MBE for his work throughout the Covid-19 pandemic.

He's one of three manx Residents receiving the medal for their contributions during the outbreak - this year's list includes a dedicated Covid-19 honours section.

He's among seven Manx residents recognised in total - this year's honours list was delayed from June due to the pandemic. 

A statement reads 'Mr Ashford has shown remarkable courage and compassion in the face of the Pandemic, showing strong leadership and expertly answering questions with kindness and humour'.
