The chief executive of an Essex charity has received an OBE in recognition of his work.

Clive Stobbs, who heads up Autism Anglia, was recognised in the Queen’s Birthday Honours this year.

Last week he visited Buckingham Palace, accompanied by his wife Faith, to be presented the honour by Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge.

Mr Stobbs said: “I am proud the work of Autism Anglia, which I have been involved with for more than 30 years, has been recognised in this way.

“We wouldn’t be able to support a single person without our staff’s loyalty, skill and compassion. I’m very proud to lead such a committed team and on behalf of those in our care I’d like to thank them and dedicate this to them.”
