Margaret Thatcher: AMs divided in tribute to late prime minister

Welsh communities still feel bitterness from the 1984 miners' strike, First Minister Carwyn Jones has said, giving his verdict on Baroness Thatcher's legacy.

He spoke in the Welsh assembly as AMs remembered the late prime minister.

Some Labour and Plaid Cymru AMs stayed away in protest as party leaders spoke.

Mr Jones sympathised with her family and described her as a remarkable personality, while the Tories' assembly leader called her a "force for good".
