Baroness Thatcher's funeral guest list released

Downing Street has released an initial list of invitations to Baroness Thatcher's funeral next Wednesday in St Paul's Cathedral.

The guest list was decided by Lady Thatcher's family and representatives, along with the government and the Conservative Party.

Those who were invited but unable to attend include Former Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev and former First Lady of the US Nancy Reagan.

St Paul's has a capacity of 2,300 and is expected to be full on the day.
