BROMSGROVE MP Sajid Javid has been named in The Times’ top 100 list of global people to watch in 2012.

The list, which included people from a variety of backgrounds, ranked the town MP at number 92.

The Times stated that, with his background in investment banking and experience working on currency devaluations, Mr Javid is the brightest of a potentially stellar 2010 Tory intake.

Mr Javid said: "I was surprised to see my name on the list but if it helps me get more done for my constituents then great."
