Baroness Thatcher's funeral service has begun at St Paul's Cathedral, attended by the Queen and dignitaries from the UK and around the world.

Her union jack-draped coffin was borne to the cathedral on a gun carriage, with a military guard of honour.

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

Four thousand police officers are on duty in central London, with large crowds along the route.
