The parents of murdered 16-year-old schoolboy Jimmy Mizen said they are "honoured and humbled" to receive MBEs for services to young people in the 2014 New Year Honours list.
Jimmy was killed on May 10 2008 - the day after his 16th birthday - after he was attacked in Lee, south east London. Jake Fahri is serving a life sentence for his murder.
Since then, Barry and Margaret Mizen have battled to help make young people safer - including creating the Jimmy Mizen Foundation, which works to increase young people's awareness of the consequences of violent crime.
Mr Mizen said the award was not just a reward for him and his wife but for the whole family, who are all involved in some way in the foundation.
