Richard Lake - the owner and chief executive of Eastern Airways and Humberside Airport - received his Order of the British Empire (OBE) medal from Prince William earlier this week.

Mr Lake, from Hallington near Louth, was granted the honour - for services to aviation - in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list in June this year.

At the time, Mr Lake said he was ‘humbled’ to have been awarded the honour.
