Baroness Doreen Miller's friends and family turned out to pay tribute to the late Conservative peer at her funeral today.

Several hundred guests attended a service at United Synagogue Cemetery in Bushey this afternoon.

Baroness Miller of Hendon, who was appointed to the House of Lords in 1993, died on Saturday aged 81.

The former business woman founded an international mail order and marketing company before moving into politics.

She had three children and was an active women's rights campaigner, serving as executive director of The 300 Group, an all-party group aimed at getting more women into Parliament, and as a campaign and human rights advisor to international women's organisation Soroptimist International.

Baroness Miller was made an MBE in 1989 for her contribution to promoting the advancement of women in public and political life.

All three Barnet MPs have paid tribute to the "stalwart" politician for her contribution to Parliament.
