Last respects paid at Lady Thatcher's funeral

The Bishop of London has led prayers at St Paul's Cathedral as the Queen and more than 2,000 dignitaries paid their last respects to Baroness Thatcher.

The Right Reverend Richard Chartres paid tribute to her forthright character, Methodist upbringing and the compassion she showed to others.

Prime Minister David Cameron called the funeral a "fitting tribute to a great prime minister".

There were 4,000 police officers on duty in central London, with large crowds along the route of her funeral procession, which was conducted with full military honours.
