Baroness Thatcher is at peace after "a life led in the heat of political controversy", the Bishop London has said in his funeral sermon.

The Right Reverend Richard Chartres paid tribute to her forthright character, Methodist upbringing and the compassion she showed to others.

Prime Minister David Cameron has called the funeral a "fitting tribute to a great prime minister".

The Queen is among more than 2,000 dignitaries paying their last respects.

Four thousand police officers are on duty in central London, with large crowds along the route of her funeral procession, which was conducted with full military honours.

There were reports of some protests but the Right Reverend Chartres told the congregation in St Paul's "today is neither the time nor the place" for political debate.
