Thatcher funeral: Protests peaceful amid tight security

More than 4,000 police officers lined the route of Baroness Thatcher's funeral procession, many patrolling the streets with sniffer dogs trained to detect explosives.

There were some protests but not the large demonstrations some had predicted.

Six police forces from outside London sent specialist officers to help with escorting foreign dignitaries.

June Kelly reports.
