Baroness Thatcher, Britain’s Iron Lady, has died after suffering a stroke at the age of 87.
Her children Mark and Carol Thatcher announced that their mother had died peacefully following a stroke this morning.
Speaking to Sky News, spokesman and friend Lord Bell, who announced her death, said: “We’ll never see the like of her again. She was one of the great prime ministers of all time and transformed people’s lives.”
He described the former prime minister, a grocer’s daughter from Grantham, as the greatest leader of the Conservative Party with the exception of Winston Churchill.
