THE FORMER head of a Redditch company has had his honour revoked after being jailed for sex offences.
Edward John Roberts was imprisoned for two years, half of which will be served on licence, after being found guilty of two counts of indecency with a child and two counts of indecent assault.
The 72-year-old, of Grafton Flyford and who worked as chief executive of Peterson Spring UK in Hewell Road and was regional chair of CBI West Midlands, was handed a CBE in 1993 for services to business and public life.
This has now been revoked in light of the nature of the offences he committed in south Buckinghamshire around 30 years ago.
The move was approved by The Queen on the advice of the Forfeiture Committee and is normally only considered when a person has brought the honours system into disrepute.
