Thatcher to pay respects at Heath's funeral

Margaret Thatcher is expected to be among the politicians and dignitaries attending the funeral of former Conservative Prime Minister Sir Edward Heath today.
Lord Armstrong, Sir Edward's former private secretary, said other attendees at Salisbury Cathedral this afternoon will include 'a good representation' of Sir Edward's former colleagues.

He said: 'There will be MPs, Members of the House of Lords and a lot of people who have featured in various capacities in his life.'
