Lady T's Motherly Side Revealed

History and popular literature has depicted former Prime Minister Margeret Thatcher as a formidable Iron Lady, putting politics before her personal life and not suffering fools gladly.

But a new account of her life, written by her bodyguard of 20 years, has claimed to shed light on a caring, motherly side hidden from the general public.

Special Branch detective Barry Strevens told a newspaper his heart "sank" when he originally discovered who he would be protecting.
