The father of a nurse brutally murdered by her ex-boyfriend has said he is "very proud" to be made an MBE for services to victims of domestic abuse.
John Clough and wife Penny, who was made an MBE in the 2013 New Year Honours List, have thrown themselves into campaigning since the death of their daughter Jane in July 2010.
The 26-year-old was knifed in the staff car park at Blackpool Victoria Hospital as she arrived for her shift.
Miss Clough's killer, Jonathan Vass, was on bail on charges of raping her and she had kept a diary that detailed his abuse and her fears he would take revenge.
Mr Clough, of Barrowford, Lancashire, is an ambassador for the National Stalking Advocacy Service, which is calling for a national register of serial stalkers and domestic abusers.
More than 164,000 people have signed a petition to urge the Government to manage and monitor stalkers in the same way sex offenders are tracked.
Speaking of the award, he said:
Mr Clough explained the stalkers register campaign had received a lot of support, including from the Home Affairs Select Committee, but he felt it just needs "that rubber stamp on the end".
The Cloughs also campaign for more refuge funding and are patrons of domestic abuse help service SafeNet, which last year opened Jane's Place, a refuge for those with complex needs such as mental health issues and drug or alcohol misuse.
Mr Clough said:
In October 2010, ambulance technician and club bouncer Vass was jailed for life and ordered to serve a minimum of 30 years.
