Former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher has died today, Monday, April 8.

Baroness Thatcher has died at 87 following a stroke, her spokesman has said.

Lord Bell said: “It is with great sadness that Mark and Carol Thatcher announced that their mother Baroness Thatcher died peacefully following a stroke this morning.”

Paying tribute to Baroness Thatcher, Chichester MP Andrew Tyrie said: “Mrs Thatcher had the will – and the skill to communicate to a wider public, even her opponents – her commitment to arresting and reversing Britain’s post-war decline. The degree of her success in this marks her out as Britain’s greatest post-war reformer.”
