What connects a Holocaust survivor, a Member of Parliament and Mike Norris, chief executive at Computacenter? The annual graduates 'Roll of Honour' awards ceremony for the University of Hertfordshire.

Norris is one of 16 "pillars of the community" to be handed an Honorary Degree and Fellowships for outstanding contribution to academic disciplines, charity, professions or public service.

Specifically, he has been slapped on the back for his "contribution to the computer services industry and the regional community". 

He joined Computacenter as a City salesman in 1984 and became chief exec a decade later, the rest is history.

Apparently, people from all over the world pitch up in St Albans at this time of the year to celebrate the event and to minimise the impact of the increased traffic, the University is urging people to use public transport or a shuttle bus it has kindly laid on.

Just for your information Mr Norris, the shuttle runs every 15 minutes.
