The nation is today paying its respects to Baroness Thatcher.

Thousands are expected to line the route from Westminster to St Paul's Cathedral.

The former stateswoman's coffin will leave the Palace of Westminster at 10am before being transferred to a gun carriage at the Church of St Clement Danes.

Her funeral will be held at S Paul's Cathedral at 11am. Politicians from around the world, as well as parliamentarians and members of her family will attend the service.

Lady Thatcher, who died last week aged 87, was MP for Finchley from 1959 until she stepped down in 1990.
