Margaret Thatcher's funeral cortege is now leaving St Paul's Cathedral in London following a ceremony attended by over 2-thousand dignitaries.

Queen Elizabeth and the Duke of Edinburgh were among the mourners at the service which heard how she is now at peace after "a life led in the heat of political controversy".

Thousands turned out along the funeral's route through Central London with many applauding her legacy as Britain's first femal Prime Minister - but many booing was also heard from protesters..
