Baroness Thatcher, the former British prime minister has died. Thatcher, 87 succumbed to a stroke this morning. Lady Thatcher was Conservative prime minister from 1979 to 1990.

 

The BBC quotes David Cameron, the incumbent British prime minister saying Thatcher was a "great Briton". Downing Street said Thatcher would be accorded the same status of funeral as the Queen Mother and Princess Diana, but will not lie in state, in accordance with her own wishes.

Lady Thatcher, born Margaret Roberts, became the Conservative MP for Finchley, north London in 1959, retiring from the Commons in 1992.

Having been education secretary, she successfully challenged former Prime Minister Edward Heath for her party's leadership in 1975 and won general elections in 1979, 1983 and 1987.
