LONDON, Dec 29: A team of British divers who helped save a junior football team stranded in a flooded cave in Thailand were awarded in Britain's traditional New Year Honours alongside former supermodel Twiggy and Monty Python's Michael Palin.
The seven underwater specialists involved in the remarkable rescue were also joined on the prestigious annual achievement list -- announced on Friday -- by Hollywood filmmaker Christopher Nolan, Jim Carter from "Downton Abbey", best-selling author Philip Pullman and leading Brexiteer lawmaker John Redwood.    -AFP
